INTRODUCING THE WANT LES ESSENTIELS NYLON TECH COLLECTION : Designed to withstand life’s daily adventures, the WANT Les Essentiels Nylon Tech series is the infamous collection of durable and strong, yet super-soft to the touch nylon accessories. The collection, which features water & tear resistant nylon, is designed with the intent of safeguarding everyday essentials, no matter the climate. The fabric is crafted in Italy with the intention of delivering accessories that have maximum strength and durability while remaining lightweight and smooth to the touch. 

 

Canteen Green, the new Spring/Summer 2018 colorway offering for the technical nylon collection launching with the Spring/Summer 2018 season, brings an update to an array of the brand’s signature staples.

How to Spend One Billion Dollars

A new survey from NJOnline reveals the quirkiest ways that Americans would spend ONE BILLION dollars if they were to win the jackpot; it’s safe to say some people had some crazy ideas!

Some examples:

  • Disappear, go into hiding, or buy “at least 5 wooded acres with off-grid underground living in Washington or Oregon”…
  • Drink “all of the piña coladas”. All of them.
  • Buy the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Team
Any idea is a good idea! You may choose to spend your fortune on something practical or you may just want to blow it all on something wacky; it’s up to you!
Dream Big
While many respondents had similar ideas for what they’d do with the money for themselves – buying land, buying new cars, going on holidays – there were a few with some clear goals in mind.
  • 14% Would Buy an Island

25-34 year olds expressed the highest degree of interest in buying an island instead, with 17.4% making that their answer, compared to an overall overage of 14%. It was least popular among 18-24 year olds, of whom only 6.5% considered an ocean-encircled territory something they’d want.

  • 28% Would Buy a Mansion
In terms of indulgences, mansions were the most popular, with 28% of respondents saying it would be their preferred way to spend a big of excess money. This was true across all age groups, both genders, and all locations.
Other Weird and Wonderful Ideas
Americans were nothing if not creative with their responses to the survey, and here are some of NJOnline’s top picks:
  • Invest in a trip around the world
  • Buy an island, a yacht and a self-driving car
  • Create a cat playground worthy of visitation
  • Purchase a pink diamond
  • Hire a bodyguard
  • “Sit on my porch with a cold one and watch the sunset”

The ideas ranged from big scale to small, and there was a huge range of visions for these prospective billionaires.
