DISCOVER MAY 2021’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
Rain, hailstone, and a lot of wind. The May weather has been quite abysmal. With June just a week away, let’s keep our fingers crossed for some sunshine. Until then, feast your eyes on these cool new drops I've picked out. So, following on from my April roundup, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite drops for June 2021 – enjoy.
Superga Artifact Collection
The Superga Artifact collection takes its name from the Italian word “Artefatto” and pays homage to more than 100 years of expertise in making shoes. Being one of the brand’s highest ranges, it has been designed with classic piece-of-art attention to detail, for the man of today who is keen on basic, utilitarian-style yet refined garments. Developed in collaboration with Japanese designer Teppei Sugaya, the Japanese canvas has been sourced from Kuroki, known as the home of denim material in Japan.
The North Face Rainwear Essentials
The North Face re-introduces the Apex Flex FUTURELIGHT and the Dryzzle FUTURELIGHT as part of its Rainwear Essentials collection. Created for the modern adventurer, these sustainably conscious jackets now contain the most breathable-waterproof technology yet so that you never stop exploring. The FUTURELIGHT fabric is engineered using an ultra-thin nanomembrane that creates airflow while keeping water out, providing better ventilation without sacrificing on protection. Stay on the trails for longer with a seam sealed three-layer shell that helps regulate body temperature for whatever pace you travel. The Dryzzle FUTURELIGHT arrives in style with colourways such as Burnt Olive Green and Misty Jade. It features a fully adjustable hood, adjustable Velcro cuff tabs and a snap-locking storm-flap to lock in body heat and keep wind and rain at bay.
Breitling Super Chronomat Collection
The Super Chronomat, Breitling’s boldest Chronomat to date, is the ultimate choice for those who want a timepiece mastering the balance between sturdy and stylish. Inspired by the Frecce Tricolori watch that Breitling created for the hotshots of the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet in 1983, the Super Chronomat is a supercharged, all-purpose sports watch that’s elegant enough for the evening as well. True to the original Chronomat, the rider tabs protect the sapphire crystal. The ones at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock are interchangeable, so the wearer can use them for countdowns as well as countups. With a case measuring 44 millimeters, the collection is the boldest of its kind.
Wolverine BLVD Line
Wolverine, the 138-year-old footwear and apparel brand, is debuting a sneaker collection as part of its Wolverine BLVD line, inspired by clean lines, contemporary aesthetic, and expert craftsmanship. By combining Wolverine’s century plus shoemaking expertise with an updated take on a classic sneaker, the new collection will offer a cool and durable option for the modern man’s wardrobe. Wolverine BLVD sneakers will be offered in two silhouettes, with each shoe hand-made and assembled using traditional techniques all while incorporating professional detailing.
Mulberry Typography Collection
The Mulberry Typography Capsule loudly reinforces the brand's Made to Last commitments and plays proudly to their brand DNA. The collection offers iconic silhouettes, with a contemporary graphic treatment, in newly launched Eco-Scotchgrain. Mulberry's much-loved heritage material Scotchgrain has been reinterpreted to sustainable standards, with the introduction of Bio-Synthetic material - using inedible foodstock that would otherwise go to waste.
Born out of a mindset that everything is possible and supported by a tribe of creators breathing life into the unknown. Inspired by the runway’s innovative response to the sneaker market, LAVAIR has carved out a niche as an everyday luxury lifestyle brand, with an emphasis towards collaborating with some of the most prestigious cultural creatives of our generation. The Creator: A true staple each season returns with 3 new colourways; Stone, Charcoal and a future summer classic White.
Rolls-Royce x Hermès
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has co-created a magnificent Bespoke Phantom in a unique collaboration with Hermès. Designed and handcrafted by a combined team of bespoke specialists at the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and Hermès in Paris, Phantom Oribe reflects the personality and passions of its owner, Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa. The client envisioned the car as a 'land jet', bringing the serene exclusivity of private air travel to the road. The car's striking two-tone exterior matches the characteristic green and cream glazes of antique Japanese Oribe ware, of which Maezawa-san is a prominent collector.
The Rolling Stones SS21
The Rolling Stones’ fashion and lifestyle brand, RS No.9 Carnaby, have launched their new SS21 collection. The collection introduces a bold new colour palette, fresh for summer and presents reimagined classic Rolling Stones graphics using the iconic tongue and lips logo. Be transported to the beach this summer with the collection inspired by surf culture with designs featuring colour pop and gradient graphics, trippy tie dyes, and sporty silhouettes.
Loch Lomond Whiskies 45 Year Old
Award-winning independent distiller, Loch Lomond Whiskies, has unveiled its newest aged single malt; a 45 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The expression is the first of three releases in The Remarkable Stills Series of single malts to be released by the distillery which celebrate its innovative and unique straight neck pot stills. Distilled in 1973, the super-premium Loch Lomond 45 Year Old has matured in American oak casks, before finishing for one year in a first-fill oloroso sherry cask to add a distinct sweet flavour.
