This Week’s Must-Haves: Retro-Inspired Briefcase Is Actually a Stylish Portable Grill

This week, the Adweek staff is highlighting stylish summer picks including a briefcase-inspired grill, canvas pet carrier and luxe tent. Take a look! 


RS Barcelona Mon Oncle V2 Grill $375

With its leather straps and pastel-hued exterior, the Mon Oncle grill from RS Barcelona could be easily mistaken at first glance for a very chic briefcase. Inside, however, you'll find a surprisingly powerful tabletop barbecue. The charcoal-powered grill, constructed in Spain from stainless steel and coated in fire-resistant paint, has perforated sides that allow it to reach higher temperatures without causing damage to the case. Weighing just 17 pounds, it's a perfect companion for a picnic, tailgate or trip to the beach.

Lotus Belle 13′ Tent $1,800

Not a fan of roughing it? Lotus Belle's luxe canvas tent allows you to enjoy the great outdoors without sacrificing comfort. The weatherproof structure provides more than 170 square feet of space and measures nearly 10 feet tall at its highest point, so you'll have more than enough room to spread out whether you're camping out at a music festival or just entertaining guests in the backyard.

Soji Stella Market Lantern $35

Idaho-based Allsop Home & Garden is giving traditional paper lanterns a high-tech upgrade with its solar-powered Soji collection. Each lantern is made from durable Tyvek fabric and contains dual LEDs that automatically turn on when the sun goes down. At night, the Stella lantern's punched exterior creates a festive pattern of lights.

VSSL Flask Light $65

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, VSSL has launched its latest multi-use camping tool, this time combining an LED flashlight, 10-ounce flask, two collapsible stainless steel shot glasses and a bottle opener. And just in case you've over-imbibed and wandered off-trail, there's a compass in the flask's lid to help guide you back home.

Aromaflage Insect Repellent Perfume $79

This summer, keep bug bites at bay without smelling like you doused yourself in a bucket of stinky chemicals. Aromaflage perfume contains a blend of all-natural essential oils that it claims is just as effective as the leading DEET-based insect repellent, and best of all, will leave your skin smelling like citrus, vanilla and cedarwood.
