Style Notes: WANT Passport

A lot of the romance has been lost in the concept of travel. We want to slow down that experience [&] refine it.
— Dexter Peart, co-founder WANT Passport.
If James Bond somehow found himself flying commercial, WANT Passport is where he’d bide his time. A curated selection of the best travel-inspired products from around the world, a visit to the store is an experience in travel all of itself: wooden toys from Swedish brand Playsam, glassware by Finnish iittala, small home goods and headphones hail respectively from the Danish labels Hay and AIAIA, luxe Parisian candles and Australian toiletries from Aesop round out the selection. As may be expected, forget about flipping through typical celeb rags, reading material is strictly highbrow with tomes like The New Traveller’s Almanac & The New York Times36 sitting alongside Businessweek, The Economist, Monocle, Foreign Affairs and ELLE Decoration UK.
Paris: for the architecture; London: for the people; Tokyo: for pure fashion and style and the simplicity of making things look great, Montreal: for the culture.
