After this past weekend we think it’s safe to say that summer has landed. We spend many a Monday discussing weekends where plans were altered and manipulated to fit with an entirely unpredictable weather schedule, today is different. We’d be lying if we said it hadn’t inspired this week’s Top 5 Items To Drop This Week. While last week’s round up did feature sunglasses, the darker colour palette mirrored our brewing pessimism for summer. In stark contrast, this week’s selections are here to rouse a desire to travel, to get out and about.
With products from newly arrived brands such as Poente, Polaroid Originals and Floyd as well as picks from familiar faces like A Day’s March and Schnayderman’s, here are our favourite items to drop this week.
One of our favourite trouser choices of the season comes in the form of A Day’s March’s Off White Relaxed Trousers. Made of thin cotton canvas, this pair is lightweight and loose, falling naturally from the waist to a slightly tapered leg. Dyed for a matte off-white finish, we’re styling with camp collar shirts for a stylish take on relaxed summer dressing.
Schnayderman’s is a label based in Stockholm which for the past 7 years has been perfecting the art of shirting. Focusing equally on cut, material and style, this pencil stripe shirt captures everything we love about the brand. Contrasting stripes meet at the button fastening while the button-down collar instils a sense of togetherness.

Handmade in Portugal, Poente produces a range of glasses and sunglasses made from premium Mazzuchelli acetate. Some styles take design cues from classic shapes while others are decidedly forward-thinking, embodying the label’s fresh and youthful outlook. Poente’s black Divine sunglasses are elegant and sophisticated, mixing strong angles with laid-back curves. Not only do they make an impact visually, the lenses are made by legendary manufacturer Carl Zeiss so you’ve got 100% UVA and UVB protection.
Backed by a love of everything skateboarding, from the community to the design of the wheels, Floyd is a new-age suitcase company that stands out. Boasting a sturdy, durable polycarbonate Makrolon shell, the Check-In suitcase rolls effortlessly on polyurethane wheels no matter where you are. Complete with a compartmentalised interior to keep all of your packing neat, Floyd are here to make holidays even more enjoyable. Need more evidence? Check out our Floyd suitcase review.
