Colour us excited! This week, Editor’s Picks features the most vivid, vibrant products of the summer. It’s a many-hued, multi-coloured assortment of everything from bright red swim shorts to bold blue table tennis bats.
There’s a Devonshire-designed surfboard in a rich shade of yellow, a martini glass with a turquoise tinge and some supplements from Lumity in an eye-catching, mood-boosting orange. But the brightest, most lively new launch? A watch from Longines; created to celebrate the Commonwealth Games and featuring a rainbow of colours across its case. For this and more, take a look below…
Fresh as a rosé: Mirabeau Nude Pink 2021
As decadent as it is delicious, the latest rosé from Mirabeau is the flute-filling fuel of our summers. Soft and pale, it’s a wine imbued with soft yet concentrated aromas of redcurrants and wild strawberries. Buy a bottle (or six) and serve at your next al fresco dinner party — as it pairs particularly well with food.

Good sport: Longines ‘HydroConquest XXII’ Commonwealth Games Edition
Created to commemorate the current games, Longines’ latest limited edition is a diving watch suited to sportsmen both in and away from the aquatics centre. Exceedingly exclusive (only 2,022 will be made), the highlight of the design is those colourful ‘Commonwealth’ accents encircling the bold black dial.

Shifting gears: Indian x SUPER73 ‘eFTR’ Hooligan e-bike
The latest collaborative effort from the American motorcycle company may be dubbed the ‘Hooligan’ — but we think it looks rather sophisticated. Slickly stripped-back and fitted with a trusted electric powertrain from SUPER73, the aluminium e-bike delivers more than 75 miles of range at 20 mph when paired with pedal power.

On the ball: Tiffany Leather and Walnut Table Tennis Paddles
If you’ve been inspired by the table tennis at the Commonwealth Games — and have pockets a little deeper than the average athlete — these profligate ping pong paddles are a whole lot of forehanding fun. Trimmed with ‘Tiffany Blue’ leather, built on reclaimed American walnut and featuring sterling silver trim, they’re bringing designer labels to the playing tables.

Add to bag: Smythson ‘Everyday Backpack’ in Ludlow
The British brand’s ‘Everyday Backpack’ does exactly what it says on the fabric-lined, zip-pocketed, grained-calf-leather tin. Sturdily constructed from ‘Ludlow’ leather and fitted with padded, adjustable shoulder straps, that navy blue hue only adds the versatility of the piece. A modern man’s elegant essential.

Making history: Bentley Mulliner Speed Six Continuation Series
If you missed out on Bentley’s ‘Blower’ continuation classic last year, this latest addition to the carmaker’s garage of resurrection gives both you (and the Mulliner Speed Six itself) a second chance. 12 new versions of the Le Mans-winning motor will be built using the original blueprints — and will boast a four-seat ‘Vanden Plas’ body, a handbuilt engine and a price tag of £1.5 million.

Dive in: Aubin ‘Bardney' Swim Shorts
If you’re hoping to make a splash in the pool this summer, look no further than Aubin’s bold, block-coloured swim shorts. Made using ‘Sequel’ — a versatile fabric made using recycled sea plastic — these trunks are cut with a relaxed fit, tied with a natural drawcord and kitted out with mesh-lined pockets.

Making waves: Gulfstream ‘Eggplant’ Surfboard
In a yolky shade of yellow, this custom-ordered board is crafted on the Devonshire coast by Gulfstream. With a highly foiled, performance pintail and beaky nose, it’ll perform well in anything from one foot at a beach break to overhead at a pointbreak. In fact, thanks to that striking colour, it’ll make waves wherever you use it.

Shaked or stirred: No.3 Gin x Nude Glassware Martini Glasses
Hand-blown from crystal and finished with both a fine-rimmed bowl and slender stem, this cocktail-cooling collaboration between No.3 Gin and Istanbul-based NUDE glassware guarantees to keep your martini cold for almost twice as long as a classic glass. The best touch? Its pale turquoise colour — the same shade as a bottle of the Berry Bros. & Rudd gin itself.

In the frame: TBD Eyewear ‘Cran’ Sunglasses
Handmade in Italy, these sophisticated sunglasses take their name from the space between the collar and the lapel of a jacket. The brown lenses combine with the rounded shape of the glasses to create a classic look, and each hinge is hand-closed by the craftsman. Ideal for any last-minute getaways.
