Watch­maker Henry Lon­don's story be­gan when a vin­tage find was dis­cov­ered at a Lon­don street mar­ket; a beau­ti­fully crafted clas­sic wrist­watch that had the words ‘Henry, Au­gust 1965' en­graved on the case back.

As part of a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Drakes, artist Adam Dant has cre­ated a play­ful twist on the tra­di­tional pocket square, fea­tur­ing a range of threats to a gen­tle­man's wardrobe, in­clud­ing moths, pi­geons, ash trays and oil. A fab­u­lously sub­ver­sive nod to fash­ion. Ev­ery bot­tle a col­lec­tors' item in it­self, this glee­fully pink of­fer­ing from Bri­tish per­fumer Jo Malone is one of her bold­est yet.
