Rossinavi x Pininfarina Aurea Yacht
Here’s a good joke. An Italian yacht builder and a famed design studio walk into a bar…only this isn’t a joke. Rossinavi have teamed up with famed Ferrari design studio Pininfarina for one of the most stunning yachts to ever set sail. Featuring an expansive triple deck layout, the Aurea Yacht is a nautical playboy’s dream come true. It features three huge decks which comprises of two pools, a 70-metre beach club, guest cabins and owner’s quarters. The Aurea achieves this level of space via a new design which sees its diesel-electric power unit moved to the centre of the craft rather than the rear. And as always, if you have to ask then you can’t afford it.
The Bentley Baby Stroller & Toddler Trike
Think fatherhood can’t be cool? Think again. Bentley have created what is arguably the most luxurious baby stroller ever which can double as a trike for when the bastard child grows some legs. The 6-in-1 stroller trike perfectly exudes Bentley’s signature aesthetic from the replica Continental GT wheels right down to the sleek black colour scheme and cross-stitched seat.
Cirrus Vision Private Jet
If you’re going to jump onto a private jet then make sure you drop the shifty Bow-Wow facade for the real deal. That real deal os the Cirrus Vision Jet SF50, a private craft boasting the largest windows in the industry thanks to its liberal use of lightweight carbon fibre. Inside the Vision it’s a spacious affair with room for five passengers in a layout which lends itself to the panoramic views of the world below. The design is also unique from the rear which sports a single turbo fan propelling spent air onto a V-tail wing. Your departure and arrival surely won’t go unnoticed.
Neematic FR/1 Electric Bike
Say hello to the world’s most powerful electric bicycle. When you’ve grown the balls and strapped on a hard hat, the Neematic FR/1 can hit speeds of 100km/h and it also helps that it’s designed to go off-road in the case that you do venture off the black stuff. The bike features robust Fox 2017 shocks paired with Hope tech3 V4 brakes, Pinion drive and DMR pedals. A 20kW motor strapped to it ensures riders will have more than enough torque for hill climbs of trail shredding.
Marc Newson x Hennessy X.O
Famed designer Marc Newson has lent his eyes to yet another project, this time venturing into the world of cognac with the equally coveted name of Hennessy. For this collaboration Newson worked on a limited edition bottle for Hennessy X.O and the result is simply pure elegance in a suspended liquid. Newson says that when the curved lines capture light, they highlight the detail in both the bottle and its contents. Those keen on this piece of art will need to work hard – Hennessy X.O by Marc Newson is a limited release drink and will be distributed around the world from next month.
Glassblower Ben Slanted Bar Glasses
Once you’ve acquired the Hennessy, it’s time to show it off in a way that has never been done – on a 45 degree slant. Just be sure to keep the pouring under 177ml otherwise you’ll risk tipping the glass over. Trust us the accolades from guests will far outweigh the spillage. Or you could just pour twice. The glasses come in pair.
