Editor’s Picks: Hylo Sneakers, Snowboard and Porsche Concept Car

From a new, nature-inspired wristwatch from Grand Seiko to a bottle of sparkling British rosé, this is what we want this week…

This week, we’re packing up and heading out into the wild. We’re braving the waves in Brabus Marine’s latest luxury tender. We’re hitting the slopes on Shaun White’s latest snowboard. We’re even taking to the trails in a vivid, vibrant pair of Hylo running shoes.

And, kitted out with additional gear, including Marshall’s latest hard-wearing speaker and Grand Seiko’s new nature-inspired wristwatch, we’ll be ready for anything. Take a look…

Featuring one of the brand’s ‘Spring Drive’ calibres, the 40mm timepiece is water resistant to 100 metres — if you fancy a spot of night-swimming yourself.
