You did it. You made it through January and have come out the other side. February is looking up.

From Oakley goggles and Duke + Dexter loafers to Porsche 911 speakers, this is the gear that's going to elevate your lifestyle. Thank us later.
Oakley Fall Line M Snow Goggles
It's ski season and that means investing in some mighty gear to get you down the slopes in style. In skiing and snowboarding, "taking the Fall Line" refers to the line down a mountain that is most directly downhill, and Oakley's goggles have been inspired by that. They take their name from Line Miner and the big lensed specs are part of Oakley’s “Line Series” of cylindrical style snow goggles. With a mid-sized ﬁt, Fall Line M is optimised for a wide variety of faces and is engineered to ﬁt perfectly with most helmets, while they use Oakley’s seal-locked Ridgelock Technology, which allows you to change the lenses quickly.

Daniel Roth Tourbillon Souscription
Daniel Roth as a brand has been revived, and it took centre stage in Miami last week. Developed and assembled by the world famous La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton, Daniel Roth's Tourbillon Souscription, which was unveiled at LVMH Watch, is an update to the brand's signature Tourbillion first released in 1989. The new timepiece is a little more refined, but comes with the OG's classic solid guilloche gold trimmings on the dial, and is powered by an all-new-in-house calibre and has an 80-hour power reserve.
Duke + Dexter Wilde Black Rattan Penny Loafer
We love rattan. Rattan sofas. Rattan beds. But rattan loafers? Yep, they're a thing. Inspired by traditionally woven rattan furniture, the Wilde Rattan Penny Loafer by Duke + Dexter comes with a woven upper. What's different? The shoes have replaced your classically wicker-skewed weave you'd find on garden furniture with a luxe crocheted blend of silk and wool. Kick back in your rattan chair and put your feet up.

NOMOS Orion Neomatik New Black
The Orion Neomatik sits within the NOMOS Glashütte catalogue, and is one of the German brand's signature dress watches. The ultra chic timepiece comes complete with an in-house-made movement and is infused with a classic Bauhaus-inspired design. A newly-dropped trio of Orion Neomatiks play to the signature watch and its specs, but now comes with black galvanised dials and steel and gold details. Neat.

Made with a composite blend of Dyneema and Cordura - two of the strongest man made fibres on the planet - Thrudark's fisherman knit is built to last. And that it will. It's hardwearing and will stand the test of time, as well as the harshest climes on the planet. It's made using 100 per cent pure New Zealand wool, which is some of the finest out there, and has a classically timeless look.

Porsche 911 Speaker 2.0
Porsche doesn't just do fast cars. It also does really powerful speakers that will amp up any living area. The speaker, which arguably resembles an exhaust and is based on the tailpipe trim of the 911 GT3 (992), features Qualcomm aptX HD sound and in-room wireless technology. It's as powerful as one of Porsche's cars and will make a chic and seriously impressive addition to any living space.
Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Chinese New Year 2024
Chinese New Year falls on Saturday 10 February, and heralds the year of the dragon. Made in collaboration with artist Raku Inoue to celebrate the Lunar new year, this limited-edition Glenfiddich gift box, which is available at Selfridges, features a hybrid animal of the distillery’s famous stag and a wood dragon. Inside? The 21-year-old whisky was completed in Caribbean rum casks, and imparts aromas of beeswax, coffee and orchard fruit, as well as orange peel, coconut and clove.
J Ottaway trousers
British brand J Ottaway has dropped a pair of tailored trousers that fit the bill of a pair of tracksuit trousers. Thanks to a ultra-relaxed drawstring waist, the trousers are made using premium Italian wool from Vitale Barberis Canonico, which only adds to their comfort.

Deakin & Francis Limited Edition 18ct Red Gold Dragon signet ring
Deakin & Francis' signet rings are designed in the brand's Birmingham workshop, and are cut from 100 per cent sterling silver. In honour of the Chinese New Year, this signet ring comes with an imprint of a dragon, as this year will be the Year of the Dragon, and has been made using the same craftsmanship Deakin & Francis has been using since 1786.

Longines Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve
The Longines Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve watch is inspired by the timepieces of the 1950s and has been created to mark the 70th anniversary of the Conquest collection. Longines has delved into its extensive catalogue of vintage gear and created a watch that easily could be a vintage find from way back when. It's a stunning piece of work and comes with a champagne dial, which is embellished with 12 applied yellow-gold hour markers, which in turn contrast against the steel case. Longines' Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve has a 72-hour power reserve of the brand’s proprietary automatic calibre L896.5 movement created exclusively for Longines by ETA.
