The Original Pilot Silver by Rimowa, which made its debut in 1994, is back, and along with it the myriad of functions that served pilots. The bag fits between the two pilot seats in a cockpit and for ease of use, it opens like a classic pilot case to provide easy access to materials inside. Of course, what fans identify with is the iconic aluminium exterior inspired by the early days of aviation. While it may have been made originally with pilots in mind, the updated version is used by DJs as a makeshift case to element-proof their records and equipment, and by business travellers who found convenience in storing both their files and travel essentials in one place. Inside, a padded compartment can either hold a laptop up to 16 inches (40.6 cm), or be removed in order to transform the business case into a versatile toolbox.

The Pomellato Together collection uses jewels to create a language that is aimed at seeking the bonds that bind us. This need not be just romantic love but the relationship between friends and family too. These are expressed through rings and bracelets that feature double bands of smooth gold and are embellished with diamonds and gemstones, united by a link. These two perfect forms are forever united to create a greater whole as ribbons of gold meet in an embrace, entirely confident in the strength of their togetherness, even when far apart. The rings can be worn either revealing or concealing the link, and the simple lines are gender-fluid and their universal appeal is instantly evident.

Raid his wardrobe
Fendi Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2023 takes a leaf from the men’s wardrobe where masculine tailoring and traditional fabrics are given a feminine touch. Utility wear comes in the form of boilersuits and aprons, while lace is lacquered and layered. Cheeky elements are expressed in slips of lingerie peeking through, or thigh-high lace-up boots. Billowing scarves romantically trail satin dresses with a twisted drape - the perfect look to make a dramatic entrance.
Life cycle of a bag
Unica Furla Earth Limited Edition is the first made-in-Italy bag that is made in biodegradable leather. The bags are made by experimenting with sustainable production processes, and by applying new leather manufacturing techniques. One example is Oleum, the brand that identifies the biodegradable leather line produced by Cyclica; the bags follow a circular model for their production. The leathers are meant to become Oleum originate from traceable European farms, which are by-products of the food industry and are vegetable tanned with wastewater from oil production, thus avoiding the direct use of aldehydes and glyphosate. The result is that the leather is metal-free and environmentally non-toxic.
