There’s a lot happening at OPUMO right now. New brands are emerging online quicker than ever before, classic design brands are reinventing their established aesthetic and forward-thinking designers are shaking things up – and that’s across every single department. From menswear right through to homeware, art and audio too.
As always, to keep you one step ahead of all the latest arrivals we’ve pulled together another incredibly popular Top 5 that features running essentials from Ron Dorff, a new premium backpack from Paul Smith and the wireless Libratone speaker that will provide the soundtrack to your summer.
You don't truly understand how good a running jacket can be until you have one that is so well-crafted that you won’t ever want to take it off. The new Ron Dorff Windbreaker ticks all the boxes when it comes to finding a jacket that does just that. Ultra-light, water-repellent and windproof, the jacket is scattered with functional details such as the Ron Run reflective print, practical front pockets, adjustable hood and elastic cuff for a handsome look and feel.
YMC has successfully transferred its carefree and contemporary aesthetic into a range of covetable sunglasses over the past few seasons and its latest ensemble is perhaps the best yet. The YMC Mads Sunglasses, a slim and unisex design with a wider nose bridge, are a lightweight and comfortable pair of frames that are guaranteed to see you through this season and beyond thanks to its stainless-steel arms and Italian-made Divel lenses.
Founded in Denmark in 2009 by Tommy Andersen, Libratone’s mission has stayed the same for a decade now, ‘to free the sound.’ The aim is to use premium quality components, delivering the power and quality of a hi-fi system but in a portable package. This way, you can listen to your favourite music on the go without sacrificing the finer details of the sound. Especially, now as the Libratone Zipp 2 comes with enhanced performance and integrated voice assistant technology.
The relaxation of the workplace dress-code has steered the backpack ahead of the briefcase or tote as the ultimate work-appropriate accessory. Well, now you can strike the perfect balance between the two thanks to the new Paul Smith Leather Backpack. Crafted from a premium black embossed leather, the wonderfully understated backpack comes complete with a large zip fastening with an additional zip compartment, adjustable shoulder straps and a signature Paul Smith ‘Bright Stripe’ pocket slot.
