Globe-Trotter Albemarle Edition

globe.jpg

There's just something about the bright red handles on Globe-Trotter's Albemarle Edition luggage. The pieces were designed to celebrate the opening of their new flagship at 35 Albemarle Street in London and the color combo could not be more perfect.

Navy fibreboard is accented with caramel tan leather and each of the cases are lined with a bespoke print that features the company's original North Star device logo from their 1912 catalog. The Albemarle Edition is available in two trolley sizes and one extra deep suitcase. There are also two women's cases if you want to treat the lady to something special.

If all the coverage from this year's Concours d'Elegance was any indication, people certainly love their vintage automobiles. Whether you're a collector or simply just an admirer, you'll definitely want Assouline's upcoming Vintage Cars on your bookshelf:

"The timeless beauty of antique automobiles elicits an emotional reaction, and avid collectors will spend millions on vintage models for the nostalgia they evoke.

Featuring exquisite photography of premium models by renowned photographer Laziz Hamani, Vintage Cars is a tribute to the great automobiles of the past and the undeniable fascination they hold for many passionate collectors today"

Tumi has a new flagship carry-on and they cut no corners when it came to materials. The Silverstone International Carry-On is part of the CFX line we told you about earlier in the year and uses a soft carbon fiber from their partners at American manufacturer Carbitex which they have exclusive use of for travel goods.

Typically a hard-side material, Carbitex CX6 is a high-performance carbon fiber fabric that is ultra strong yet lightweight. The Silverstone also features an expandable design when you need a little more storage and inside you'll find tie down straps, a suiter section, and a variety of pockets.

Anglepoise and Paul Smith Type75 Table Lamp

Anglepoise and Paul Smith bring some color to your desktop with a special edition of their Type75 Table Lamp. Designed by Sir Kenneth Grange in 2004 as an update to the Anglepoise Lamp, the Type75 is as timeless as the 1932 1227 Desk Lamp which is a classic British design.

So it was only natural to marry Smith's eccentric styling with the functional lines of Anglepoise's lamp for this special edition. Smith's color choices perfectly complement Grange's design and with a price of £149 ($250) it's one hell of a deal that you just can't ignore.

Icon E-Flyer II

With many of their masterpieces going for a cool six figures it should have been no surprise that the most reasonably priced entry into the Icon range would quickly sell out. Released late last year, the E-Flyer bicycle returns with a fresh new update.

We've yet to get a full list of specs and details, but what we do know is that the all-electric bike will now come in nine colorways and will be equipped with hydraulic brakes. It also looks like there will be a whole host of options for you to choose from like the saddle bags in the photo above. We'll update the post as we get the final price and option list when the bike goes up for sale in the coming week.

Bang & Olufsen wireless S8 speakers may look small, but beneath the surface lies some powerful audio hardware that will fill any room. The BeoPlay S8 consists of two satellite speakers and a subwoofer that can have its sound "position" adjusted to optimize itself no matter where it is in the room.

Though compact, the BeoPlay S8 packs 140 watts of sound in each satellite's Class D amps and 280 watts of power in the subwoofer. The sub also has an 8-inch driver to pump out deep bass and is coupled with a DSP to get the most out of your music. Did we mention how good these look? These aren't some speakers you hide on a bookshelf, these are well-designed furniture pieces in their own right that you'll definitely want to display out in the open.

Leica updates its flagship M with the new and understated M-P. Available in black or silver, the M-P loses the Leica badge for an under the radar look with an almost completely unbranded exterior and the only branding being a subtle Leica script on the top plate.

The camera also gets a 2GB memory buffer for faster shooting, an LCD monitor covered in a layer of anti-reflective sapphire crystal for the ultimate in scratch-resistant screen protection, and the same flagship 24 megapixel full-frame sensor that's found inside its sibling, the Leica M 240.
