Whether it’s sipping a cup of coffee from Le Creuset’s Stoneware Cafetière to get your morning caffeine fix, putting on Vuori activewear ready for your workout, or revving the V8 engine of a Bizzarrini Revival model, this week’s Editor’s Picks will inspire you to get up and go. If you’re heading for a picnic, make sure you take at least two bottles of champagne in Fieldbar’s cooling drinks box, and if you love a great daiquiri, but you don’t fancy rum, try Monkey Shoulder’s latest mix of three spirits as an alternative. Take a look…
High flyer: Breguet Type XX 2057
The Breguet Type XX collection has been linked aviation for almost 70 years – on the wrists of both pilots and amateur flying enthusiasts. Following four years of development, two new designs have recently been released – one military-inspired and the other a civilian model – with nods to the Type XX’s heritage, as well as contemporary updates. The new Type XX flyback chronograph Military version features a 42mm steel case and self-winding movement with date and subdial, plus interchangeable calfskin and NATO straps.

On ice: Fieldbar Drinks Box in Parisian Green
The Fieldbar Drinks Box draws inspiration from wooden “Drinks Boxes” made by the famous picnic hamper companies in the early 1900s, designed to accommodate two Champagne bottles in an upright position, along with various other drinks. Mirroring the dimensions and proportions of the vintage designs but modernised with high-performance insulation and new materials, the Drinks Box is everything you could wish for from a contemporary cooler.

Soft touch: Torsa Studios Otis Merino Wool T-Shirt
Made from a combination of fine merino wool sourced from New Zealand’s South Island, this ultra-fine T-shirt has an unparalleled softness and feel. With the properties of 100% merino wool, but the durability of a synthetic, merino offers the innate ability to regulate body temperature throughout exercise – warming you up when you’re cold and cooling you down when you’re hot – making it ideal for running and training. Other natural properties include anti-odour, moisture wicking and breathability.

Good spirits: Monkey Shoulder Fresh Monkey
At Monkey they love a great daiquiri, but they don’t make rum – so they had to get creative. A world-first innovation from Monkey Shoulder, Fresh Monkey is a unique mix of three new make spirits – two grain spirits and one Speyside malt spirit – which have been blended unaged. Offering the freshness and versatility of a light rum but with depth and a delicate malty finish, Fresh Monkey is crisp, clear and made for mixing, adding character to sunny cocktails like mojitos and piña coladas, or perfect in a classic daiquiri.
