Editor’s Picks: Ray-Ban ‘Shooters’, Hermès Powerbank and Zagato Roadster

From a pair of bright red shorts from Apnée Swimwear to the new superbike from Norton Motorcycles, this is what we want this week…

How do you handle a heatwave? Do you crack open a can of refreshing ‘Ashwagandha Water’ from No1 Botanicals? Do you drop the top on your Zagato-designed ‘Mostro Barchetta’ roadster? Or do you button up a lightweight linen shirt from Ripa Ripa?

This week, with Wimbledon in full swing, Glastonbury turning up the volume and warm weather sweeping the nation, we’ve sought out the hottest new launches in the luxury market — from a high-tech Hermès powerbank to the best-ever British superbike from Norton Motorcycles. So cool off, kick back, and take a look…

Time will tell: Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver

As Wimbledon gears up, it’s a top time to revisit our recent interview with Cameron Norrie — in which the British player revealed he wears a diving watch on the court. But not just any watch; the latest evolution of a Rado classic. Featuring a rotating bezel made from hardened stainless steel, the ‘R763′ automatic calibre is mounted in a matte plasma ceramic monobloc case.

Tassel loafers are the ideal choice for well-heeled heatwaves. Simple to slip-on — but with a hint of delicately decorated character — these navy numbers from Swiss brand Hockerty will put a suede-cut spring in your summery step thanks to their fine leather lining, versatile brown detailing and rounded toe.

Shifting gears: Mostro Barchetta Zagato Roadster

Inspired by a car Sir Stirling Moss called ‘Monster’, the first of Zagato’s new ‘Mostro Barchettas’ will be delivered to its lucky owner during the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. With double-wishbone suspension, AP Racing brakes and a 4.2-litre Maserati V8 (churning out 414 horsepower) it’s a high-octane, highly stylish treat.

If you’re yet to invest in that signature, statement piece for summer, Ripa Ripa are on hand to help. This linen number was inspired by the shirt famously worn by Gianni Agnelli during his summers in Capri. Handmade in Naples and cut from lightweight fabric that gets softer with every wear, that idiosyncratic collar will turn heads ’til September.
