If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked Anwar Hadid (who co-founded unisex jewelry line Martyre with partner Yoni Laham) about the Red Vines, white canvas Vans, and iced tea he can’t live without.
Honestly, whenever I stop to get gas or I’m at a corner store, I always get Red Vines. They’ve always been my favorite candy. I don’t really like chocolate that much. These are my go-to.
During high school, I would wear Vans until they broke and then get a new pair. They’re kind of my beaters. And then that evolved into me drawing on them and using the canvas to actually paint on. I even dyed a couple pairs. They’re just good sneakers that work on everyone.
I love how convenient Postmates is, you know? Whenever I’m in New York and I’m with my friends and we want to order something good to eat, we’ll do Postmates. My favorite place in New York is this place called Mimi Cheng’s — the best dumplings and kung pao noodles ever. That’s basically all I eat when I’m in New York.
I was really addicted to this game for like five years. It’s the best game ever. There’s a new one coming out this summer; I think one comes out every summer. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, though, even though it’s my favorite game ever. It’s just not healthy. I wouldn’t talk to anyone. I wouldn’t let anyone in my room. I didn’t do anything else when I was playing it.
I like the peach one. This is also another thing if I’m at a gas station or a corner store, I’m getting a bottle of Pure Leaf. It’s a classic. In L.A., I could never find any iced teas that I liked in the gas stations, but this one was it.
It’s obviously just a soap, you know, but you can wash your hair with it, you can do a bunch of different stuff. I like the eucalyptus one, and they have a citrus one I like too.
I have this in all metal, with a bunch of stickers on it. I just keep adding stickers to it. I think the first Rimowa I ever got I stole from one of my sisters when I was like 15, then later I got my own. It’s just a classic suitcase; I can take it anywhere, it’s so small.
So the Pray For Us ring set has a ring that says Pray, a ring that says For, and a ring that says Us. I wear those every day. This was one of my first ideas. It was something that everyone could relate to and everyone could wear. I wear just the For and Us because I lost the Pray when I first got it. It’s something you can wear every day, you can sleep with them on because they’re so small, they’re just easy. They’re unisex — an easy classic.
