Welcome to Swipe, Adweek's very first lifestyle section where we'll be spotlighting some of the most covetable products around, from high-tech gadgets to fashion accessories to stuff that's just plain cool. This week, we're kicking off with a pair of (very) high-end headphones, a notebook inspired by the best animated film of 2014 (sorry, Oscars, you got it wrong), an insomnia-curing lamp and more.
Beats by Dre $1,300
Want to stand out from the hordes of subway commuters in their nearly identical Beats by Dre headphones? Look no farther than the brand's latest collaboration with Italian fashion house Fendi. The over-the-ear model, wrapped in Fendi's signature Selleria leather and stamped with subtle "FF" logos, debuted at the designer's spring/summer 2015 menswear show in Milan and come in a rainbow of vibrant hues including emerald green and sunflower yellow. Still not luxe enough for you? The Fendi x Beats collection also includes an even more extravagant pair made from black crocodile.

Instead of shelling out for new touchscreen-compatible gloves, why not just revamp an old pair? When painted on the fingertips of leather or fabric gloves (there are two different formulations), the Nanotips liquid creates a conductive film that lets you swipe away without fear of frostbite.
