VESPA GTS 75TH Anniversary Scooter

Just a year after the end of World War Two, what would become a global icon hit the streets of Italy — the Vespa scooter. 75 years and 19 million units later, the Vespa is as popular as ever and celebrating with a special edition to mark the historic occasion. The top-level Vespa GTS all-steel body comes in a bespoke Gallo 75th, created to evoke the colors popular in 1940s Italy.

SONOS Roam Wireless Speaker

Capable of handling Bluetooth or Wifi audio and IP67-rated for dust and water resistance, Sonos’ Roam is meant to be a use-anywhere speaker. It stands under 7″ tall and weighs under a pound, and packs in two Class-H amplifiers for running the tweeter and oval-shaped mid-woofer. It has automatic Trueplay, which adjusts the sound to the environment using the built-in mics that serve double-duty for hands-free Alexa and Google Assistant support. Two Roams can pair together in stereo over Wifi, and a single unit can also beam Bluetooth streams to other Sonos speakers. The battery lasts provides up to 10 hours of playback or 10 days of standby and charges via USB-C, or via any Qi-compatible wireless charger. £159.00, Available Pre-order Sonos.com

Reception Hooded Sweat Core

“Reception is a precise combination of people, time and places. It’s a dinner with friends that goes late into the night. This energy in the air that you can’t touch or see”. What they do apparently is “a curation of these souvenirs. From our very own teenage years to skate references and all things travel-related.” That may be true, but right now all we know is that they have produced this beautifully simplistic, cotton brushed fleece hoodie in a modern-relaxed fit and we simply must have it. In fact, we need everything on the site. Because after all, you can’t ever go wrong going back to the basics.
£140.00, Available Reception-clothing.com

G-Shock X Royal Navy ‘FROGMAN’

Could there be a more badass collaboration than with the ministry of defence? We think not and thats exactly what G-Shock have decided to do for their newest release ‘FROGMAN’ coming April 2021. In a deal brokered by IMG, G-SHOCK’s unbreakable timepieces, built from a ‘Never Give Up’ philosophy, makes it perfectly equipped to support UK service personnel all over the world. G-SHOCK is already the watch of choice for many in the Armed Forces, and this limited edition release further cements the partnership as an official licensee of the Ministry of Defence. Designed in conjunction with the Royal Navy, the watch has been built to accommodate the hostile environments faced by naval personnel – at sea and on land – using a Carbon Core Guard structure. This, combined with world-renowned G-SHOCK shock resistance and ISO 200M diving water resistance, creates a structure that is highly vibration resistant and water impenetrable. The ISO certification reaffirms the timepiece’s suitability for use by professional divers. £799.00, Available April 2021, G-shock.co.uk/navy
