DISCOVER MARCH 2020’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
Anyone got cabin fever yet? Whilst most of us are working from home and self-isolating, our favourite brands are still launching cool new products which are well worth looking into. We might not be able to safely get out to the shops, but eCommerce is still going strong gentlemen. Here I have details of a cool photoshoot with Isaac Marley Morgan and Joshua Meeks Rayvon, and a new £1 coin to celebrate the new Bond Film, among others. So, following on from my February roundup I’ve compiled a list of my favourite products and releases for the month of March 2020 – enjoy.
James Bond 2020 UK Half-Ounce Silver Proof Coin
For the forthcoming James Bond (No Time To Die) release, the fictional British Secret Service agent has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. To celebrate this new 007 film, The Royal Mint have created a limited-edition presentation of only 15,007 UK half-ounce silver proof coins. Struck in half an ounce of 999 fine silver, each coin design is presented in a sleek case with a booklet on how Bond came to the big screen. The stylish reverse designs that feature on the three coins in the 007 coin series were created by Matt Dent and Christian Davies, partners at design agency Bison Bison.

Ben Sherman Spring/Summer 20 Studio Sessions
For SS20, Ben Sherman have drawn inspiration from 1960s studios, with textures and patterned prints, musical equipment, the iconography of album covers and the retro styling aesthetics of various British musicians. Staple outerwear silhouettes are reinterpreted with updated fabrication and treatments such as the Technical Fishtail Parka, a Micro House Check Jacket with shower resistant finish, the Hooded Utility Jacket, and Signature Waxed Harrington Jacket. Preppy boating-blazers and mod stripe details inspire Colour Block Sweatshirts and Knitted Vertical Stripe Crew Neck Short Sleeve Tops. Notable is the iconic Ben Sherman Signature logo which makes a return as the hero monogram after a seven-year hiatus.

Breitling Launches Premier Bentley Mulliner Watch
Breitling have launched a special watch in celebration of its partnership with Bentley Motors. The Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition shares part of its design inspiration with Bentley’s Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, which was also launched this month. The new Breitling timepiece commemorates 17 years of collaboration – the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer – and focuses on the Bentley Mulliner workshop, which since 1959 has crafted the leading luxury carmaker’s most unique tailor-made models. Breitling’s partnership with Bentley Motors can be traced back to 2002, when the iconic automobile brand was designing its legendary Continental GT. Bentley commissioned Breitling to create an onboard clock that would reflect the unparalleled luxury, peerless quality, and extraordinary performance of the new grand tourer, which made its debut in 2003.
