STORE YOUR TREASURES
Ideal for your Arturo Fuente Opus X “A”s, or those Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserves you managed to nab, the Symphony humidor is available in a number of finishes (perhaps polished brass or black laquer with high gloss?), and comes lined in brass pipes simply because “it is always a pleasant experience to smoke a fine cigar while enjoying good music”. We concur.
A CENTURY OF TANK
Princess Diana, Andy Warhol and Jackie Kennedy – icons of the past century have all worn the iconic Cartier Tank, and in honour of the 100th anniversary, Cartier has released just 100 pieces of the Tank Cintrée Skeleton, available in pink gold or platinum. With a radically skeletonized, caliber 9917 MC manual movement, wearers can marvel at all the components at work, while the curved profile hugs the wrist in an elegant, contemporary fashion.
In clear crystal and 18-carat gold, “Eternal Truth” is one of four, limited-edition creations in the “Eternal” collection, a collaboration between British artist Damien Hirst and Lalique featuring a selection of the artist’s most recognisable motifs including the cross, dove, skull and butterfly. Each of the 20 pieces comes accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist.
Inspired by the volumes and colours found in the N°21 Spring/Summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection, Linda Farrow’s collaboration with N°21 founder and creative director Alessandro Dell’Acqua has resulted in a sunglass range with classic yet feminine shapes, innovative materials and unexpected details that are striking and utterly now.
Bitter orange and cardamom, nutmeg and pimento and gaic wood and vetiver are the heart, top and base notes in Salvatore Ferragamo’s newest fragrance in the Tuscan Soul collection. Spicy and intense, La Commedia is an homage to La Divinia Commedia (Divine Comedy) by Florentine poet Dante, though one spritz avoids the inferno and purgatory parts, taking wearers directly to paradiso.
It might nearly be the season to hit the slopes, but for those tempted to squeeze in one last tropical escape, these Chanel beach rackets will be the ultimate companion come sunset, when you’re on the sand somewhere fabulous, swilling bubbles and lazily batting away the calories.

You can count on German craftsmanship to keep your valuables safe, and do so in style with Grand Illusion. Clad in hand-stitched Nappa leather and Alcantara, the stainless-steel safe elevates its contents out of a shaped column crowned by a fine timepiece with a BUBEN&ZORWEG signature movement, inspired by Dubai’s clocktower. With space for four watches and six drawers, it unlocks via a biometric fingerprint sensor or a transponder chip, with an optional alarm for added piece of mind.
THE SNAKE CHARMER
British designer Nicholas Kirkwood, much-loved for his quirky and feminine footwear, has collaborated with Bulgari to design a capsule collection of the Italian brand’s cult Serpenti handbag. Inspired by the snake motif, this gold nappa flap cover bag features a three-dimensional chevron pattern with tone studs and a snakehead closure – all in all, a glam accoutrement for your next night out.
