L003 Neo from Lacoste

Lacoste Footwear has launched the L003 Neo – a brand new sneaker for SS23 which continues to break the lines between fashion and sport, remixing the classic codes of tennis with high fashion aesthetics. As pictured on world-renowned RnB artist Ella Mai and up-and-coming hip-hop artist Midwxst, the L003 Neo embraces boldness for unbeatable style and irrepressible energy. Inspired by the pioneering spirit of René Lacoste, the L003 Neo embodies Lacoste’s vision for liberating movement, freeing minds, and clashing cultures. This is achieved through the sneaker’s unique active silhouette, which features an outsole made of rubber and soft EVA for comfort, and a mix of open foam, oversized neoprene, translucid nylon and hairy suede leather on the upper which resembles the unmistakeable features of a tennis ball.

Spinnaker Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition

Introducing the Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition, a new addition to Spinnaker Watches’ Fleuss collection which pays tribute to Henry Fleuss, a celebrated diving pioneer. Spinnaker Watches pay tribute to Fleuss for his contribution to the advancement of diving technology. Whilst working at sea, Fleuss realised the need for more advanced equipment as he saw his team expend great amounts of effort and time with cumbersome equipment. In 1878, Fleuss conceptualised the cutting-edge equipment, known today as the David Submarine Escape Apparatus, that both compressed oxygen and absorbed carbon dioxide thus freeing the diver from external support. Fleuss’ invention paved the way in World War II maritime warfare and is widely recognised as the first practical closed-circuit breathing apparatus. This limited edition timepiece is available in two colourways, with 250 pieces per model.
