Do some good: iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT) RED

Editor’s Picks: Stripped-back minimalist watch, a Norwegian getaway and a RED iPhone

As part of its continued partnership with AIDS-fighting charity (RED), Apple has once again released a special edition lineup of devices, this time featuring a (PRODUCT) Red iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The latest versions — from the storage capacity to the camera’s ability — have the same specs as the standard models, but this time they sport a red glass enclosure with a matching aluminium band and a black front; but more importantly, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS programs.

Slim and subtle, these brand-new accessories by Ettinger should be your next officewear purchases. Having consulted Echlin, a London-based architectural design and development studio, on what essentials a modern professional carries for business, Ettinger then crafted two zipped portfolios that are both practical (while the medium zip pouch is perfect to hold an iPad and A5 notebook, the large zip portfolio can accommodate a laptop and an A4 notebook) and sleek enough to to carry into the boardroom. For maximum impact, wear with a navy two-piece and timeless derby shoes.

Go simple: NOMOS Glashütte Tangente Neomatik 41 Update

Editor’s Picks: Stripped-back minimalist watch, a Norwegian getaway and a RED iPhone

For horology fans who prefer fuss-free looks, you’ll be glad to hear that NOMOS has updated its 41 Tangente with the most subtle complication on any timepiece in the world. Unlike other watches that display the date through a large window, the latest Tangente places its numerals on the outermost rim of the dial with two red markers highlighting the day’s date — all of which keep the overall aesthetic stripped-back, symmetrical and clean.
