Hasselblad X1D Camera
Few brands can claim to have been to the moon and back, making a Hasselblad perhaps one of the coolest cameras you could ever own. Founded in 1941 by Swedish inventor and photographer Victor Hasselblad, the brand has captured some of the world’s most iconic images, including the first landing on the moon.
Today the venerable manufacturer continues to break new ground, producing the world’s first compact mirrorless medium format camera. The compact X1D is a true game-changer, packed with a 50 megapixel lens, HD video capabilities, Wi-Fi and built-in GPS.
It may have a price tag to match, but there’s no denying this camera is capable of taking photos that are, quite frankly, out of this world.
Available at Hasselblad, priced £7,188.
MOA x Disney Collection
When it comes to style, Disney’s mouse means business. In recent seasons the company has lent its character to a never-ending roster of brands including Vans, Kenzo, Coach, Herschel Supply and A Bathing Ape.
Joining the lineup is trainer brand Master of Arts, also known as MOA. The collaboration sees Mickey appear on nine pared-back unisex footwear styles. Our pick is the white nappa leather lace-ups, which feature an all-over print, direct from the house of mouse.
Available at Master of Arts, priced £125.
Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Headphones
Despite more often than not looking incredibly stylish, wireless headphones frequently fell down when it came to performance. That was until New York startup Master & Dynamic came along with retro-cool designs that clip the cable without sacrificing sound.
The model that established the brand as a champion of both form and function – the MW60 – has been given a makeover in an all-black colourway. The update holds on to the premium cowhide headband and soft lambskin ear pads, as well as the 16-hour rechargeable battery.
It’s enough to make you think the cord was just a training tool.
Available at Master & Dynamic, priced £419.
Loewe Pesce And Fiore Notebooks
Every April design-addicts from across the world flock to Milan for Salone del Mobile Milano, the largest furniture fair of its kind in the world. And each year the presence of fashion brands – Nike, Diesel and Cos to name a few – is felt on a bigger scale.
At the 2016 event, Spanish luxury fashion house Loewe showcased a furniture collection conceived by Brit design genius Jonathan Anderson. The lineup of oak tables, drawers and chairs, each decorated with leather cut-outs, is flanked by smaller pieces such as notebooks with designs taken from Loewe’s archives and previous collections.
Available at Loewe, price available on request.
Outwell Cervon Grill And Fire Pit
Setting up camp to spend a few days among nature requires more than just a little solid preparation. Up there with a sturdy tent, trusty chair and an ever-chilled coolbox should be a fire pit so you can enjoy a drink under the stars way into the early hours.
Less cumbersome than packing two, Outwell has combined a grill and fire pit into one multi-use man-tool. The stainless steel frame can burn with either charcoal or wood and be adjusted to four different heights to make campsite cooking – and chilling – a breeze.
Available at Go Outdoors, priced £63.97.
