A sturdy suitcase

Licence to fill

This vulcanised carry-on from luxury luggage brand Globe-Trotter might seem a little extreme but, if it’s good enough for 007, it should please other intrepid travellers. Inspired by the suitcases that feature in No Time to Die, the 25th instalment of the James Bond franchise.

A blue and gold bottle

Smells sublime

With a base of luxurious Laos oud, a precious distillation favoured for its ever-evolving depth of aroma, this wearable, yet statement fragrance by Maison Francis Kurkdjian combines Moroccan cedarwood and Indonesian patchouli with vanilla. The result is a heady, mesmerising scent synonymous with the mystical Middle East.

A maroon coloured dress

Frock and awe

Bird & Knoll’s elegant cotton ‘Allegra’ dress is lightweight enough to keep you cool even in desert heat, while ensuring you’re fully covered up. Its burnt-orange hue and maxi length make it the ideal trans-seasonal piece: metallic mules lean it towards glamorous beach dinners, while pristine white trainers are apt for city wanderings.

A blue, circular, pocket solitaire game

Good game

Louis Vuitton’s hand-crafted solitaire set of intricately engraved marbles, cowhide embossed with city names and Plexiglas offers a luxury twist on the classic 18th-century European game. In a monogrammed case, it makes for a fine gift or, indeed, the ultimate self-gift for a delightful screen-free diversion.

A gold bottle

Liquid gold

Bottega Gold is aptly named and not just because of its gleaming bottle – this Prosecco DOC has won multiple gold medals. Traditionally made with Glera grapes from the Venetian Prealps, this refined and fruity sparkling wine is just the ticket for a celebratory pre-flight freshener or luxury treat on landing to kick-off a holiday.

A black roller with a wooden handle

Roll back the years

Crafted from hand-cut obsidian from South Tyrol and black steel, this face roller works hard (quite literally) to undo tell-tale signs of jet-lag, depuffing the face and draining excess fluid from the skin. Susanne Kaufmann originally created her rollers for exclusive use in her family’s spa, but guests persuaded her to make them available for purchase.

A smart blue checked jacket

Cover story

Rarely is a jacket comfortable enough for a flight and yet slick enough for stepping out into a city. At once luxurious, cosy and breathable, Canali’s signature wool, silk and linen-blend men’s blazer nicely balances out for easy wearing even in humid temperatures. It comes in a timeless heritage check for the new season.
