A surprise selection of rarities, curated to provide a spectacular moment in time – experiences that until now, were reserved only for the few (very) fortunate.
The publisher’s modernly-debonair son, Daniel Curtis, has gone 3D with it and now Robb Vicesis a subscription box.
The boxes are surprises each month, filled with the most small-batched wonderfulness; all curated around a story and meant to stoke and satisfy curiosity about the good life.
The contents are worth $500-$800 and feature incredible things like technologically-wild writing instruments designed by Ferrari’s Pininfarina, hand made Italian Finlay & Co sun spectacles, luxe Euro-styled Bluetooth speakers or rare elixirs like the first creme de cassis made in 1874 from the house of Gabriel Boudier or the Louis Vuitton-owned Glen Morangie, maker of some of the world’s most spectacular single malt scotch whiskies since 1843.
Memberships must be applied for and are offered either month-to-month or for 3, 6 or 12 month periods. For approximately (depending up on what subscription chosen) $100, every month, you can gift someone else (or yourself) with a box filled with rarities that together have been curated to provide an exquisite moment in time.
Since it’s creation in 2016, Robb Vice collaborations have been done with chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Marcus Samuelsson and collections from brands like Lalique, Master & Dynamic and Highland Park. Master milliners, Worth & Worth offered the making of a bespoke hat; the box included a tape measure and swatches of handwoven Honduran fabric from which to create it.
This Spring, one of the boxes will feature all that it requires to experience the most moving of music on original vinyl. We can’t tell you what the products are – but if you remember the delight of buying a diamond tip needle, it may ignite your imagination about the contents.
Robb Vices is about discovery; getting something in the mail that creates a spectacular moment, that until now, was reserved for the very few fortunate.
