Basquiat on a skateboard deck for your wall, 1940s elegance for your wrist and the perfect white Italian leather sneakers for summer feet. Welcome to this week’s top five selection.
The ideal companion for an unpredictable summer. A Day's March is the Swedish brand aiming to provide you with style throughout the day, whatever sort of day it is. If it turns a little cloudy, then this Patch Pocket Tencel Shirt is exactly what's needed to throw over that sunny-day t-shirt. Sustainable manufacture from cellulose fibres results in a satisfyingly deep, faded finish.
1940s style, meticulously updated. Your next everyday watch doesn't need to have an everyday look. Subtle yet distinctive with a mechanical movement handmade by expert watchmakers in France, the Bicompax 001 chronograph uses acrylic glass for a more compact profile. Case is stainless steel, with a black dial complemented by a black leather strap. Twin dials, typical of the 1940s, display seconds and a 30 minute timer.
Your signature casual sneaker for this summer. Oliver Cabell provides an essential addition to your footwear collection with these full grain Italian calfskin leather sneakers, hand stitched and leather lined. There's obsessive levels of attention to detail: the laces, for instance, are in Italian cotton. Soles are Margom, renowned for lightness and durability. Pure white takes you from beach to early evening cocktails.
The perfect addition to your form follows function decor. Norm Architects turned to minimalist art for inspiration when creating this elegant sofa for the Scandinavian design specialists at Menu. The idea of the Offset Sofa, say its designers, is that narrow arms are offset by a generous seating area, while short metal legs give the sofa the air of hovering above the ground.
Hard-hitting contemporary art. From graffiti to the world's great galleries, New Yorker Jean-Michel Basquiat had a meteoric rise to fame. Fittingly, The Stateroom is making Basquiat's work available on this set of three skateboard decks, an urban tribute to this most inner city of artists. Complex, striking and always political, Basquiat's work rewards repeated contemplation. This deck is designed to be wall mounted: add a grip and wheels for street-use.
