In the mood to splurge? Here are our latest picks of the most desirable products and experiences in the luxury market. By RIAAN JACOB GEORGE

 

SOUND SPACE

If you are looking for a high-tech Bluetooth speaker, we recommend the Devialet Phantom 1 that comes with a whopping price tag of INR 3.3 lakh. This highly-engineered (108 patents) speaker promises an output of 1,100 watts—thanks to its titanium tweeter driver and aluminium bass and medium drivers. This speaker promises sound precision and quality like no other. avstore.in

SARTORIAL SPEED

Aston Martin Racing enjoys a massive fan-following from high-flying men around the world, as does British clothiers Hackett London. The collaboration between these two luxury giants is one of the most exciting pieces of news this season. Available in India, the automobile-inspired collection features polos, jackets, t-shirts, bombers and accessories that feature elements of Aston Marton’s heritage with Hackett London’s sartorialism. thecollective.in

BESPOKE SHOES

We love homegrown luxury! This understated shoe label, Oblum, from Hyderabad appeared recently on our radar. Hand-crafted and hand-welted shoes are Tarun Oblum’s speciality as he works with a small bunch of third-generation leather artisans for production. With Argentinian crust uppers, these shoes are entirely customised for customers, right down to the shade and shape. So chic! Price on request; contact: 9052982528

LUXURY LUGGAGE

If you are planning that long-awaited luxury getaway, it is time to stock up on some chic travel gear. We can’t get enough of the Hermès R.M.S. Cabin suitcase in Pacific plume H canvas with leather accents. You can customise this easy-rolling, easy-fastening bag with a range of wheel colours, handle straps and a personalised monogram on the leather handles. And it fits right into your overhead compartment. hermes.com

NEW WHEELS

At a whopping INR 2.05 crore, India’s first electric supercar is Audi’s super sporty RS e-tron GT. Promising a single charge range of 401-481 km, this is the most powerful series production car ever made by the German carmaker. The interiors feature Nappa leather seats and the familiar Audi Virtual Cockpit. The car pumps a power of 475 kW, which can accelerate the car from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.3 seconds. Impressive! audi.in

TECH SPLURGE

Here’s what every tech geek wants to get their hands on. Apple’s powerhouse iPhone 13 Pro Max goes all out in memory with a 1TB option. The phone boasts a massive 6.7-inch screen flex and a camera capability that is ideal for travel videos. The new Cinematic Mode, for instance, shifts focus in video for a depth-of-field effect. The camera’s low-light shooting modes make for some surreal images during your travels. apple.com
