Editor’s Picks: Wooden Earphones, Cambridge Satchel and BSA Motorcycle

From a pair of sustainably made shoes from Cheaney to a Samsung Smart TV, this is what we want this week….

If you want to stand out, you’ve got to do things a little differently. Whether that’s developing a signature style, thinking far outside the box or approaching a task from a new angle, only then will you successfully make your mark.

Cheaney knows this — and the shoemaker’s recycled Derby design is a step ahead of the competition. Noble Audio’s wooden earphones, too, are turning heads. As is the newly electrified, newly resurrected BSA motorcycle brand. So keep your mind open, your finger scrolling — and see what other moving, shaking and ground-breaking inventions have caught our eyes this week…

Start your engines: McLaren Elva Roadster with Windscreen

Back in 2019, when the McLaren Elva was unveiled to the deep-pocketed public, its windscreen-less design hit headlines. Now, to make the model legal in certain US states, the Woking-based brand is offering the Elva with a windscreen, replacing the the Active Air Management System or air cushion we saw on the original car.

Shake it out: Ricard Aperitif

Created on the coast of Marseille in 1932, Paul Ricard’s eponymous cocktail ingredient is an intoxicating combination of anise, liquorice and Herbes de Provence. And, while it may usually be swirled into mixed drinks, we’d recommend drinking it simply this summer; blended with water and poured over ice.

Lace up: Cheaney Dalby Derby in Brown Eco Suede

Cheaney’s ‘Dalby’ Derby shoes not only walk the walk; they also talk the talk. Crafted from UK-sourced ‘Eco Suede’ and standing on Vibram ECOSTEP recycled rubber soles, these lace-ups are as sustainable as shoes come. And, thanks to that brushed brown colour and simply styled uppers, they’re fashionably versatile too.

Lead the charge: Electric BSA Motorcycles

BSA Motorcycles first fired up in 1919. After a storied history — the only bike James Bond ever rode in the novels was a BSA — the company went defunct in 1972. Thankfully, a subdivision of Indian automakers Mahindra is bringing the brand back to life. Opening a new factory in Banbury this summer, ‘Classic Legends’ has announced that an all-electric BSA bike will hit roads in 2022.
