Editor’s Picks: Lancia Delta Integrale, Tissot Seastar and Gusari Swim Shorts

From a pair of Ivy League-inspired shoes from Crockett & Jones to a bijou coffee machine from Sage, this is what we want this week…

When products are unveiled to the world, some make bigger splashes than others. Take the new nine-person submarine from U-Boat Worx; the perfect plunge for any moneyed superyacht owner to take. Or Tissot’s latest Seastar — fresh off the boat, packing an 80-hour power reserve and still coming in under £1,000.  

Even pioneering men’s swimwear brand Gusari has been swimming against the tide, redefining the design of classic trunks with its new surf-ready shorts. So, for all this — and more wave-making, boat-rocking launches from brands including Crockett & Jones, Louis Roederer and Ralph Lauren — take a look below…

Old school: Crockett & Jones ‘Cornell’ Derby Shoes

The latest lace-up to step out of Crockett & Jones’ workroom is this; the ‘Cornell’. Named for the Ivy League institution, these sporty suede Derby shoes stand on contrast red rubber soles and feature five top eyelets. Also available in ‘khaki’ and ‘earth’, we’d opt for the blue-hued ‘ocean’ shade.

Continuing the producer’s ongoing tribute to one-time shot-caller Camille Olry-Roederer, Louis Roederer’s latest ‘Hommage à Camille’ collection features this unctuous red. Though a challenging year, the 2019 grape juices shone; giving this Charmont notes of strawberries, liquorice and fresh pepper.

Sleep on it: Savoir Beds ‘The Sienna’ Bed

If you’ve not been watching Anatomy of a Scandal on Netflix, you’re in the minority. But, better than the pulpy storylines and melodrama are the sumptuous sets. And Savoir Beds supplied perhaps the most sumptuous piece of set-dressing in the drama; this dusty pink bed is upholstered in velvet from House of Hackney.
