From a classic candle to a cashmere sweater, this is what we want this week…

This week, we’ve discovered some of the most outlandish products of 2019. But we’re only three weeks in, we hear you cry?

True, but come back to us later in the year with another seven days of Jet-Ski Planes, Turbine Watch Winders and £60,000 Globes and we’ll be very, very surprised…

Vintage style: Brunello Cucinelli Suede Safari Jacket
