Editor’s Picks: Polestar Moped, Alpaca Coat and Ralph Lauren Watch

From a multipurpose holdall from Mulberry to a pair of patent New & Lingwood shoes, this is what we want this week…

This week, we’re looking a little closer. We’re double-taking, leaning in and inspecting in more meticulous detail than ever before. Because it’s the details that make this latest pick of products; from a subtle pattern on Mulberry’s new holdall to the understated blend of numerals on the dial of Ralph Lauren’s latest watch. So, for these, and more toned-down, low-key launches, see below…

Good spot: Mulberry ‘Medium Clipper’ Holdall

The British brand’s ‘Scotchgrain’ luggage collection is a cornerstone of Mulberry’s hard-wearing offerings. But the animal-print twist gives this leather-trimmed holdall an edge over other designs. With metal feet, detachable shoulder strap and a bold green colour, it’s the perfect travelling companion.
