This week, we’re taking it easy. We’re kicking back at our coffee tables and flicking through Assouline’s latest hardback about The Hamptons. We’re tying up our cashmere Connolly robes and pouring a generous measure of Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin. We’re even pulling on the latest soft, stretchy shorts from Mr Marvis — aptly called ‘The Easies’.
So why not de-stress and decompress with us? Loosen up, wind down and keep scrolling — because these are the best new products released this week…
Back on track: Apple AirTag Hermès Travel Tag
Our first stress-relieving, easy-going gadget is this handsome Hermès travel tag. Stitched from Barenia calfskin leather, it incorporates one of Apple’s innovative new AirTag tracking devices. Loaded with Bluetooth capabilities, these are small sensor-laden devices which allow travellers to track and keep tabs on their luggage. So, even if the thought of travelling fills you with trepidation, Hermès are on hand to help.

Sink or swim: GoPro Mezcal Floating Sunglasses
GoPro are nothing if not practical. The rugged, rough and ready camera brand has already cornered the market on hardy handicams, and now it’s coming for your wider adventure kit. These ‘Mezcal’ sunglasses are particularly useful; three sets of polarised lenses are included in the box — and the frames have the ability to float in both fresh and salt water. You’ll never lose your sunglasses again.

Earn your stripes: Connolly Breton Robe de Chambre
Is there anything softer and more sumptuous than cashmere? Connolly certain doesn’t think so. This summer season, the brand’s coveted ‘Robe de Chambre’ returns in a classic Breton stripe. Knitted in a chalk, ecru and navy mix, it features a hood, two-tone belt and large patch pockets. It’s a signature dressing gown for statement dressing down.

Mix it up: Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin
The ’47’ in this German gin’s spirited name refers to the number of botanicals it’s bursting with. That’s right, almost four dozen different herbs, roots, nuts and spices swirl together in that deep brown bottle to create a dry gin unlike any distilled in London. Think lemon balm, lingonberries, cloves and cardamom. It’s rich and luxurious when served with tonic — but we’d recommend using it to mix a life-changing Negroni.

Listen up: Bowers & Wilkins P17 True Wireless Headphones
There’s plenty we don’t understand about these new headphones from Bowers & Wilkins. Qualmcomm aptX Adaptive Audio Codec Technology, for example. What could that be? Dual hybrid drive units and an IP54 resistance rating have us similarly stumped. But what we do know is that they sound good. Really good. And that charging case? You can plug it into any 3.5mm headphone jack, and it will broadcast the sound from that device to your earbuds. That’s smart.

Button it: Henry Poole Gore-Tex Infinium Travel Trench
Drawing inspiration from its age-old archives, Henry Poole’s latest limited edition garment is a thoroughly modern twist on a traditional piece of clothing. There are hints of morning coat in the Travel Trench’s design — along with dress coats, frock coats and even clothing created for motorists. Utilising Gore-Tex Infinium fabric, the coat has a clean silhouette, panelled back and breathable, water-resistant construction.

Colour of money: Mr Marvis ‘The Felsons’ Easies Shorts

Dollar-green and extremely stretchy, they’re the latest sustainably-made release from Amsterdam-based designers Mr Marvis. They’re woven from an organic cotton blend, cut with a width that doesn’t restrict movement and will ensure you keep your cool this summer — whether you’re poolside or in the pool hall.

Glazed over: Rolls-Royce X Hermès Phantom Oribe
Put your wallet away — because, even if you could afford this bespoke Rolls-Royce, it was created specifically for Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa. A collaboration between the British carmaker and French fashion house Hermès, it’s painted in the characteristic green and cream colours of antique Japanese ‘Oribe’ stoneware. And, in an unusual move, Rolls-Royce have made this bespoke paint available to Maezawa — who will also use it on his private jet.

The coast is clear: Hamptons Private by Assouline
With pages packed with poolside soirées, grandiose waterfront estates and endless days on the beach, this latest coffee table book from Assouline will have you craving a high-society summer before you can say ‘oysters and polo’. The famed peninsula — forty miles of rolling sand dunes — is explored in detail; a peek behind the manicured hedges of Amagansetts, Bridgehampton and The Meadow Club.
