Hermès x Apple Watch collection
Designed with utility and elegance in mind, the Apple Watch Hermès collection has just made our days a little brighter with the introduction of three new coloured straps for spring. Fitted with a single tour in either Lime Epsom or Colvert Swift calfskin, the 42mm model is sure to lighten the atmosphere of any room you walk into. Doubling the effect is the 38mm model fitted with a double tour in Blue Zephyr Epsom calfskin. In addition, the collection now features a new model that pairs Apple Watch with the 38mm Double Buckle Cuff in Fauve Barenia calfskin.
Dolce and Gabbana x SMEG kitchen appliances collection
After the successful launch of the Refrigerator of Art limited edition collaborative last year, Dolce and Gabbana teams up with SMEG once again for another series of kitchen appliances donned in the same hand painted Sicilian motifs and images – you know, just in case your FAB28 fridge gets a bit lonely in the kitchen. Fans of both brands can now get their hands on smaller kitchen appliances such as toasters, juicers, coffee machines, kettles, mixers and blenders, covered in delicate floral motifs and delicious images of lemons, prickly pears and bright red cherries.
Second-Generation Porsche Panamera
Look, there is no hiding from the fact the first Panamera was ugly, but what a 180 transformation this is for the second-generation four-door sedan. Utterly graceful from the new LED headlamps to the 3D tail lights, the front seats are 14-way massage chairs that makes you want to get behind the wheel and floor the throttle pedal. If the base vehicle isn’t sufficiently agile and rapid for you, there is a 4S version that goes from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
After you have fully “brained” this, might we suggest you give Clear Coffee a try the next time you’re looking for a coffee fix? The first colourless coffee drink in the world, it’s made from high quality Arabica coffee beans and pure water, without any artificial flavouring, preservatives, sugar or sweeteners – not to mention, without the stains you get on your teeth, and for the accident prone ones, on your shirt.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 2
The much anticipated sequel to the (unlikely) Marvel superheroes film will be released next week, and what better way to get yourselves reacquainted with the Star-Lord (starring Chris Pratt) and his team than through the soundtrack (or mixtape) that goes with the film? The Awesome Mix Vol. 2 will feature another compilation of hits from yesteryear – such as the opener by Electric Light Orchestra’s ‘Mr Blue Sky’ – that will get your feet tapping to the infectious beats.
