1/4 JBL Horizon Bluetooth Clock Radio
This isn't the most high-end portable speaker out there but as something of a "speakerhead", I'm quite hooked on this. I recently encountered it on my stay at the new Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott hotel. They had one in every room, and I love how slick it looks and feels, and how easy it is to use. Circular in shape, it reminds me of a vinyl. I love the look of the LED clock in the centre, which auto adjusts to your room's brightness. The silicon edge of the speaker, where all the controls are furtively contained, feels amazing to touch, and the sound? Let's just say that I may have gotten too carried away in my room one night with this little speaker and was kindly asked to turn it down.

2/4 Dr. Martens X The Who
In 1967, The Who's Pete Townshend wore a pair of Dr Martens' 1460 boots on stage, and that may very well have been brand's point of infiltration into the rock music scene. Paying homage back to the iconic British band fifty years later, Dr Marten is releasing a few models of their cool and comfortable shoes with The Who's tricolour target insignia. All designs based in black with subtle nods to British rock, this is the ultimate collectable footwear for fans of The Who and Docs, who I guess are likely to overlap anyway.

3/4 Marc Jacobs' Disco Dress
As I wait for my favourite show to return on Netflix—Glow—I'm sorely missing the 80s vibe the show champions. A lot of my wardrobe as a consequence of longing has become retrospective. One of my favourite pieces I've come across as of late is this disco dress by Marc Jacobs. Glittering in green, blue and purple, pair this dress with boots/booties and volumised hair and "nothing's gonna stop us now." #Starship

4/4 Audemars Piguet's Sapphire Orbe
I'm typically not a big fan of bejewelled timepieces unless they are extra-extraordinary, and one of Audemars Piguet's newest creations comes under that category. Dubbed the "Sapphire Orbe", this glorious piece of jewellery contains more than 12,000 stones, which supposedly took over 1,000 hours to set by hand. As a whole, the watch reminds me of our galaxy the way rings orbit around a central sphere, and you should have at least an inkling by now how I dearly love all things space (see previous Editor's Pick). Being real here, however, most of us will only admire this watch from afar as it is a limited edition of one.
