Lust-have products for Spring 2019

From perfumes and beach bags to cameras and classic boots, these are the eight must-have products in Spring 2019 to buy before it’s too late.

For her

Eugenia Kim’s ‘Veruschka’ ha

Very Veruschka

Inspired by German supermodel Veruschka von Lehndorff-Steinort and reminiscent of the style Bianca Jagger wore on her wedding day, Eugenia Kim’s ‘Veruschka’ hat is woven from raffia and adorned with a pull-through chiffon sash that can be tied primly beneath the chin or worn loose for a bohemian-inspired look. The oversized brim curves up delicately in just the right place and a discreet, adjustable grosgrain is included in the interior for your desired fit. RRP US$545.00 (about AU$785)

All that glitters

A fusion of classic style and on-trend fashion, these sumptuous Buccellati earrings are cast from 18-carat yellow and white gold and encrusted with more than 200 stones, accentuating the curved, wing-like shape. The eye-catching sapphire and yellow diamond-tipped strands can be detached for a more pared-back look. POA

The Midas touch

Kilian’s ‘Woman in Gold’ pays homage to Gustav Klimt’s acclaimed gold-leaf portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. As complex and layered as the art itself, perfumer Calice Becker wanted to conjure, in scent, the delicate gold leaf and play between light and shadow for which the painting is celebrated. The fragrance ‘opens’ with a blend of tart bergamot, ripe mandarin and aldehyde top notes, which lead to a rose petal, freesia and geranium heart. Finally, vanilla absolute appears generously in the drydown, infused with tonka bean and patchouli. RRP $295

It’s in the bag

Infused with the colours of Portugal’s Algarve Coast and vibrant streets of Lisbon, shoe king Christian Louboutin’s Portugaba bag is next summer’s must-have accessory. The intricate craftsmanship and embroidery techniques of Fridão – a small village famous for its puxado weaving – make this beautiful tote so special. The handles are embellished with ceramic beads, resembling traditional azulejo tiles, and brightly coloured tassels and patterns add an eye-catching finish. RRP AU$3,195

For him

The Leica look

Leica M cameras are legendary in the world of photography, revered by professionals and amateurs alike for more than 60 years. The Leica M-E’s compact body is dust- and spray-resistant, with a leather trim offering a sophisticated appearance. Top and base plates are finished in anthracite grey paint, exclusive to the M-E. Thanks to its high resolution and light sensitivity, photographs are imbued with the classic ‘Leica look’. RRP £3,500

For the love of sport

Inspired by the ergonomic shapes and personality-packed details of race cars, Ferrari’s catalogue of watches is for the man with a love of all things sport and speed. The new chronograph Scuderia Ferrari Red Rev EVO boasts a multilayered dial, a metal tag evocative of a motor plate and a black case and bezel. Trimmed with bright yellow details, the silicone wrist strap is fashioned after a car’s tyres, a finishing touch with attitude. RRP AU$255

Scents and sensibility

The modern man does not fit a single definition: professional, creative, sensual, rebellious. From Italy’s House of Trussardi comes a vibrant new fragrance for this multifaceted masculinity: Trussardi Riflesso Blue Vibe. Master perfumer Veronique Nyberg has combined top notes of rum, davana and yuzu with seductive base notes of leather, amber and tobacco to create an aromatic, woody scent that reflects the dynamism and duality of the man about town. Available from David Jones, Myer and selected perfumeries from August 2019. RRP $105 (50ml), $130 (100ml)

A friend for life

R.M.Williams’ Comfort Craftsman boot is created from rugged performance leather with waterresistant qualities and is combined with the signature rubber outsole, making for a robust fit that will last a lifetime. This seasonal update to the flagship boot is an ideal work-horse for the winter months. The chisel square toe and flat on-piece heel lend the boots a classic look, easily transitioning from day to night wear. RRP $595
