Essentials: Justin Reed

For this week’s Essentials installment, we speak to curator Justin Reed who runs an exclusive consignment shop under his namesake. Reed famously acquired Kanye’s one-of-one Goyard “Robot Face” backpack which sold for $55,000 USD and a DONDA Bulletproof Vest worn during Ye’s second listening party.

The Justin Reed e-commerce site consists of a selection of art, clothing, and accessories focused on limited edition collaborations and exceptional vintage items. The store exclusively holds rare grail pieces, currently offering furniture such as the Rick Owens Stag T chair made with a natural moose antler, archive pieces including the Undercover SS09 “Neoboy” M65 Military Jacket, art pieces highlighted by Michael Kagan’s Cernan ASTRONAUT Figure Set, a vast selection of rare Chrome Hearts pieces such as the Robert Mapplethorpe Leather Moto Jacket, and footwear including the CoCo Chanel Pharrell Time Capsule Sneakers.

Follow us below as we explore Reed’s personal everyday staples.

Justin Reed In-House Work Shirt
We will be releasing our line next month, which will include a work shirt, flannel shirt, sweatpants, T-shirt, long sleeve shirt, and candle.

Twenty-Four Hours a Day 
A quick one-page read for each day of the year to start the day with a few minutes of thought, meditation, and prayer.

iPhone 13 Pro
The majority of my business and deals are all run through the phone (text, emails, calls, purchasing, social, and more).

Porsche Key
Keys to my dream car I always wanted, a Porsche 997 Turbo.

Rolex Daytona
The Steel Daytona is my go-to when I do wear a watch.

MYKITA + Maison Margiela Sunglasses
Good design, light, functional, and very durable. Must have dropped and stepped on these dozens of times and they’re still perfectly intact.

Cinnamon Toothpicks
I’m on and off cigarettes so I mainly chew on toothpicks to pass the time.

Lamyland Perfume
Go to scent every day by Michele Lamy. The bottle is a work of art and sits nicely on any surface.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Card Holder
The signature leather Intrecciato is timeless. I only carry 6 cards with me and some cash so it needs to be light and thin.1 of 7

18k Gold 26-Inch Franco Link Chain
The only piece of jewelry I own and I wear it every day under my shirt.

CONTAX T3 70th-Anniversary Camera
35mm film camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. It’s a limited-edition black version that’s small and light and can fit in your pocket easily. I’ve been mainly shooting all our web and social content on this camera.

Air Force 1 GTX “Summer Shower”
I have about 12-15 white Air Force 1 variations in rotation. I tend to add a new white Air Force 1 once a month and get rid of one that gets smoked from everyday wear.

Take a look at the product spread above, and stay tuned for more Essentials installments in the coming weeks.
