A GLANCE AT THE LATEST PRODUCTS FROM THE MOST EXCLUSIVE LUXURY BRANDS
Hackett has released a new series of clothes that is described by the brand as representing the “Art of Travel”. The collection features tailored travel suits as well as a range of cotton shirts, ideal for the man on the move.
The travel suits retain their shape whether packed in a case or worn for hours on a plane. Made from crease resistant fabrics, there are three travel suits available in total: plain navy and two check suits in grey and midnight blue.
To complement these suits, there is also a new selection of new luxury cotton shirts. Made from pure Egyptian cotton in white, blue and stripe options, the shirts are resistant to creasing and require minimal ironing. As stated by the Hackett brand, “it provides a sharp and crisp shirt perfect for the man who travels extensively and wants to look just as good at the end of the day as he did at the start.”
There is also new outerwear Hackett has introduced into the range, such as the Hackett Mayfair quilted blazer. Said to have taken inspiration from 1980s street style, these new Lacoste sneakers mix leather and breathable mesh together. They give a clean and fashionable look that can be worn during the day or on a casual night out.
The iconic sneaker comes in black and white with a contrasting colored rubber heel and insole that sets the sneaker apart from the rest of the collection. The brand said, “technique and performance become combined in an iconic tri-colour, which give the Tramline sneakers an iconic ‘80s feel.”
Regarding the release of the Tramline, Lacoste said, “The sneakers have vintage details such as a rubber outsole and a mesh lining make these low-rise sneakers an irresistible throwback. Add straight leg pants and a snazzy cardigan to emphasise the retro look.”
The sneakers are available in a multitude of summer colours, as well as cotemporary texturised panels. There is also a breathable Ortholite insole.
Dupont Atelier has rereleased the S.T. Dupont Lacquer Collection, as well as the S.T. Dupont Leather Atelier collection. While the procedure remains the same for each piece, Dupont promises that the result is always different and unique.
The lacquer collection was a reproduction of lighters, which also incorporated unique ancestral techniques that were used in Atelier in 1953. Eventually, two pens also joined this collection of lighters. The method of creation is still incredibly complex, as stated by the brand, which says, “Only S.T. Dupont’s master lacquerers are able to transform the teardrops of a precious tree into the inalterable, glistening and deep-coloured material that is natural lacquer.”
For the leather collection, S.T. Dupont has decided to relaunch a collection of leather goods featuring patinated leather - this follows the success of the first re-releases.
Using the same technique that was used 144 years ago, Simon Tissot Dupont, attempted to quicken the natural patina acquired by leather over time to give it the same radiant look. He developed an exclusive procedure, patinating, which lends coloured shades and contrasts beyond compare, giving them a deeper and more vibrant colour.
Along with its new iphone, which does without a traditional headphone port, Apple has launched new Airpods, wireless headphones that use advanced technology to provide a wireless audio experience not possible before.
Airpods eliminate the hassles of wireless headphones, by just flipping open the lid of its innovative charging case and with one tap, they are instantly set up and ready to work with the iphone and Apple Watch. Advanced sensors know when users are listening and automatically play and pause music.
And Using Siri, Airpods allow users to access the personal assistant with just a double tap. This experience is enabled by the new ultra-low power Apple W1 chip, which enables Airpods to deliver high-quality audio and industry-leading battery life in a completely wireless design.
