Dyson Lighting CSYS Task Light
How many men does it takes to change a light bulb? Just one, but he’ll only have to do it every 37 years with Dyson’s CSYS task light. Proving that genius might just be genetic, Jake Dyson, the son of British inventor Sir James Dyson, has come up with an innovative light that can last almost four decades.
The lamp uses Heat Pipe technology to direct warmth away from the LEDs, stopping them becoming dimmer and less efficient over time.
As with all Dyson products, its not just about what’s under the hood either. The design is akin to a science lab clamp, fitting for the equally smart three axes that allow it to move horizontally, vertically and rotationally with no springs or pivot.
Available at Dyson, priced £349.
Graypants Ice Press
The problem with having your drink on the rocks, as stylish as it looks, is that it can quickly result in a watery drink. The obvious solution to that is to buy a machine that allows you to turn out bartender grade spheres of ice. Obviously.
Because spheres have the least surface area of any shape they provide the lowest ice-to-alcohol contact ratio possible, meaning they melt at a much slower rate than traditional cubes. Science lesson aside, buy into a model that is as equally handsome in function and appearance.
Available at Graypants, priced £620.
Stow Leather Travel Kit
Luxury travel accessories brand Stow’s products are inspired by intrepid explorers from across the centuries. While we can’t imagine Sir Edmund Hillary had that many devices to charge on his way up Everest (though it would have made for a great Instagram), the first class tech case is no less indispensable to the modern traveler.
Crafted from buttersoft leather in a range of colourways and lined with suede, the case features compartments for essentials such as passport, boarding cards and receipts on one side. On the other sits a portable battery capable of recharging devices twice, a 32GB USB drive to keep important files to hand and a folding plug with interchangeable heads.
Available at Stow London, priced from £300.
Jo Malone Black Cedarwood and Juniper Cologne
As it heats up, heavy scents based around traditional spicy and leathery ingredients need to be swapped out in favour of something a little more refreshing. However, that can mean our favourite fragrances get shoved to the back of the grooming cabinet for six months.
Jo Malone’s fragrance combining approach bypasses this, allowing different products to be layered to create bespoke smells. The latest addition to the menu first made an appearance as a limited edition in 2014. Black Cedarwood and Juniper is a woody scent with a touch of freshness.
The seductive mix can be given a citrus twist with the brand’s Lime Basil and Mandarian fragrance or transformed into aromatic and woody combined with Wood Sage & Sea Salt.
Available at Jo Malone, priced £42 for 30ml.
Bjorn Borg 60th Birthday Collection
Björn Borg was nothing short of a rockstar on the tennis court. The Swede had a style that was as slick as his strokes and is credited with changing how the modern game is played thanks to his double-handed backhand shot.
However, the one known as the ice man had one of his greatest victories after retirement with his own clothing line.
To celebrate the tennis legend’s 60th birthday, the eponymous label is serving up an all-white line of exclusive contemporary tennis clothing, bags, shoes and accessories.
Dubbed the Achromatic Collection, it even features Borg’s signature headband. While we can’t guarantee it will upgrade your swing, there’s no harm in looking ace.
Available at Björn Borg, priced £25.
Cambridge Satchel Company x LCM

Gucci x Dover Street Market
It’s easy to see how every day feels like fashion week at Dover Street Market. The retail concept store has a history of being an early advocate for up-and-coming designers and collaborating with leading brands on some of the most coveted collections.
The latest takes the form of the latter; a four-piece limited-edition men’s range designed by Gucci exclusively for the store. There’s a cotton crew neck, check trousers, a check flannel overshirt and a denim jacket, all with a patches, intarsia and studs.
Fashion die-hards will also notice the Gucci label has been designed with a red background rather than the traditional white. You know, the kind of red that will show up on your bank statement after you buy just one thing.
