Editor’s Picks: Electric Dune Buggy, Aluminium Turntable and Piaget Polo

From a new electric motorcycle from Ryvid to the latest collaboration between Deviate and Krug champagne, this is what we want this week…

Whether it’s packed with supercars or Savile Row suits, our weekly Editor’s Picks tend to elicit envy from all who read it. But this latest collection of new, laudable launches is likely to get you even greener than ever; with the verdant colour itself cropping up across the products.

There’s a pair of khaki trousers, a light mint shirt and a Piaget Polo wristwatch so bold that even its strap has buckled up the colour. Add to that the bottle green of Krug’s latest limited edition, a retro-styled, emerald-painted beach buggy and an electric-powered motorcycle — green in a different, but equally elegant way — and you’ve got one of the most envy-inducing Editor’s Picks we’ve ever amassed. Take a look.

Leading the charge: Ryvid Anthem Electric Motorcycle

Electrified with a bespoke, stainless-steel chassis, minimal, sleek bodywork and the groundbreaking ‘Ergo-Easy’ adjustable ride height system, the ‘Anthem’ is a lightweight two-wheeler for the modern age. Fitted with a 4.9-inch TFT display and easily removable 4.3 kWh battery, it’s a cinch to ride — and easy on the eyes.

Popping corks: Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème ‘Devialet Limited Edition’

Speaking of pristine purple cases, let’s take a look at Krug’s latest collaboration. Containing a crisp bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition and a pair of noise-cancelling Devialet ‘Gemini’ earbuds (through which you can listen to a perfectly-paired ‘soundsorial’ multi-sensory experience), this ‘cocoon’ is a thermal thing of reusable beauty.

Watch out: Piaget Polo Green Date

Green has long been an integral colour for Piaget, but only now has the hue been applied in all its glory to the ‘Polo Date’. With a case in rose gold — contrasting against the deep green of the face and alligator strap — this latest 42mm model ticks with the watchmaker’s in-house ‘Calibre 1110P’ movement and features handsome ridges down the dial.

Cut from a luxurious cotton stretch fabric, and featuring a hidden elastic waistband for comfort, ‘The 12 Shorts’ will have you feeling fresh from the first hint of humidity to the moment the clouds finally, thankfully break.

Lace up: Paperboy x Beams x New Balance ‘1500’ Sneakers

Standing on retro soles and stitched with vintage suede and mesh uppers, this collaboration between Paperboy, Beams and New Balance is the ideal pair of ergonomic lace-ups to see off summer. We particularly like those handsome sky blue accents — a pop of colour, but one that doesn’t distract from the subtler shades of grey.

Raise a glass: eto Wine Decanter

Designed to prevent oxidation and preserve the full, aromatic flavour of your favourite wine, the ‘eto’ decanter was first conceived in 2012 — and uses an award-winning bit of oxygen-sealing kit to keep air away from whichever wine you choose to fill it with. We like this satin-finished option; as much an arty talking point for your table as it is a handy tool. 

Righteous collar: Gusari Safari Teal Green Shirt

Continuing our green theme, this vintage-tinged shirt from swim short sensations Gusari boasts a simple spread collar, two flapped patch pockets and a relaxed fit through the body. We particularly like the shirt’s straight hem — ensuring it looks the part whether you’re lounging by the pool or halfway through an exciting expedition.

Green with envy: Malone Souliers ‘Bryce’ Boots

It’s a bold, well-soled look; a leather boot laced up in a ‘pine’ shade of green. But Malone Souliers has always stepped up to the style mark — and the brand’s new ‘Bryce’ boots are no different. Crafted from supple calf leather and standing on sturdy rubber soles, we particularly like that signature single-strap detailing across the toe.
