Ditto is a beautifully designed online shop for buying designer eyewear. Make sure to check out the "Recommendations" feature, as it is both technologically and ux-wise a wonderfully implemented tool. The site would be great even if it wasn't for this single feature. Also, I'm loving the addition of the little "$" icons as an incentive to lure new users in to engage with the site.

Wantful is basically a service for buying + sending gifts to friends and loved ones — with a twist. I really think the Facebook integration in the form when you first try the service is brilliant way of getting new users to sign up. Also, make sure that you go through the process of specifying your friend's interests at least once. It's remarkably well done.

I love the combination of a boxy grid-based design and great product photos in use at the Unit Portables site. You immediately get the feeling that their products are genuinely unique. However, my favorite part of the design is the way they have pulled the color of the main products displayed on the homepage onto the box below. It works especially well with the strong red and blue bags. Nice touch! Via @tomcavill.

Impressive redesign of Freitag's website + webshop by none other than Oliver Reichenstein (Information Architects). The site is distinct, beautiful, very easy to navigate and provides you with good views of Freitag's bags. What more can you ask for?

Mavic is a french manufacturer of high-end bike systems and rider’s equipment. The site demands very high bandwidth, but the reason for this is the fact that they're showing off very high quality close-ups of their products. This is exactly the right thing to do in a situation such as this. They are selling expensive gear to pros and high-end enthusiasts who are likely to be very picky and therefore very interested in knowing exactly what they buy. I also love that they've put the logo at the bottom right.

The use of whitespace and colors on Five Simple Steps' website is drop dead gorgeous. The grid in the design is wonderfully implemented and it's really impossible to resist the sudden urge to buy a book or two.

With a redesigned website and an identity refresh, The Mid-Century Modernist is intent on showcasing the most beautiful retro objects of desire in the world. I really, really like the way it feels out of this world when it comes to layout, colors and navigation. Close to perfection and one of a kind. Make sure to check out the gallery. Via ISO50.

All the graphic details of the AppZapper site are super yummy. The easing motions of the subnav also works wonders to create an experience almost as smooth as a snow leopard.

Inkd claims to be "The world’s first market for original print design". Whatever it is, it sure looks delicious. As far as I could tell, every single subpage on Inkd looks incredible. A truly great source of inspiration.
