Discover February 2022’s Coolest Stuff


Good lord, it has been a bit blowy outside recently hasn’t it!? From my home office window I saw someone’s log cabin roof get ripped clean off and land in another neighbours garden. It was quite the spectacle to watch, I must say. But as a true professional, I didn't let the extreme weather take my eye off the ball for this month’s coolest drops. So, put the kettle on and take 10 minutes to have a gander at these new product releases and announcements. 


APEX by Roja Parfums 

Harnessing the power of nature, APEX is the new male fragrance creation (available 3rd March) from Roja Parfums. Created to unleash your innermost instincts and your primal connection to nature’s most powerful creatures, APEX embraces dormant abilities and spiritual energies, pushing you to challenge your limits and embrace new opportunities. An empowering experience inspired by a deep-rooted connection to nature and to the Earth, the fragrance evokes primordial instincts and a sense of spirituality to empower you to reach the pinnacle of potential and be the very best version of yourself. Redefining power and serenity, APEX looks to the most powerful animals in nature, those at the top of the food chain with nothing to prove, it is this peak of hierarchy that embraces a confidence like no other. In creating this scent, Roja Parfums went on this primal journey to unleash your inner power to reach the very top, the apex of your own life. The citrus opening of the fragrance represents the start of reaching your apex, with a bright blend of Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin and Pineapple. Moving up to the apex, Roja Dove captures the scent of earth, with base notes of Patchouli and Fir Balsam, which evoke the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Connecting to our primal energies, the animalic notes of leather add warmth and sensuality. The use of sacred materials such as Sandalwood and Frankincense have been selected as a homage to ancient ingredients the earth has given us.

Breitling X Triumph Top Time Watch 

The Top Time watch is part of a spectacular new collaboration inspired by 1960s café-racer culture. In the mid-1960s, auto racing was having a heyday, and a whole subculture had sprung up around “café racers,” stylish motorcycles, used to literally transport their riders from hip café to hip café. Willy Breitling set out to capture the speed-driven style of the day with a completely new take on the timekeeper. The result? The Breitling Top Time, an unconventional chronograph designed for “young and active professionals.” It quickly became the watch of choice for a sporty in-crowd of men and women equally drawn to the watch’s bold proportions. Today, that freewheeling 1960s café-racer spirit is back in a spectacular new Top Time collaboration between Breitling and British motorcycle brand Triumph. Now in its 120th year, Triumph combines historic craftsmanship with contemporary design to create its classic motorcycles. For their debut collaboration, Breitling is producing a Top Time Triumph watch with a distinctive brushed finish in the bow-tie motif nicknamed “the Zorro dial” by Top Time collectors. Triumph, meanwhile, is launching 270 co-branded motorcycles — the Speed Twin Breitling Limited Edition — whose buyers will have the privileged opportunity to purchase a special owner’s version of the Top Time Triumph, this one with a sunray dial and engraved caseback featuring the individual number of the bike.

ONE Essentials 

Launched by Carrie Davies, who studied at LCF under Professor Dilys Williams, the Founder and Director of the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, ONE Essentials creates inclusive, stylish, all-day t-shirts, sweatshirts and underwear designed to radically reinvent the everyday wardrobe. Following a career working for the likes of Barbour and Monsoon, Carrie felt trapped and unable to make real, positive progress towards ethical fashion. ONE Essentials was born, focusing on creating beautiful, high-quality pieces – and starting with the most disposable item in our wardrobe: underwear. It also provides a full, transparent update on product impact throughout each stage of the customer journey. There is no reason why the items we wear everyday should be the most disposable. Everything at ONE Essentials is designed with the end in mind and manufactured for maximum utility, minimal waste, and the least possible harm. The brand has developed a circular business model, directly addressing the environmental cost of the fashion industry. Biodegradable, natural, and non-toxic fabrics and materials (even the stretchy bits) are used throughout the collection. Every piece is designed to last, but the brand will collect and recycle your garments if you decide you are done with them. For those that feel uncomfortable returning underwear, there is another eco-solution for the most ‘disposable’ item in our wardrobe. ONE Essentials underwear has replaced convention elastane, which goes nowhere, with an innovative biodegradable alternative.
