We were out and about yesterday doing research / shopping (take your pick) when we spotted these Kingswood Radio and Alarm Radio sewing baskets at Cath Kidston, which look just as cool in reality as they do on the page.
Get into the full swing of summer with this John Lewis Water Hyacinth Picnic Hamper.
Looking for a non-nonsense trainer with pedigree? Check out this latest reissue of the Puma Basket trainers, offered up in white with black detailing.
The trainers have been around since the 1970s, pre-empting the better-known Clyde, but like that shoe, designed initially for the basketball court. Still loved for their old school looks, the Clyde is reissued here with a premium white upper, contrast stripe and a style pretty much faithful to the original.
Limited numbers (as is the case with almost every trainer reissue these days), you can bag a pair for £55.
Inspired by traditional crochet tablecloths but made out of far more enduring polypropylene, the Carrie can be used as a shopping or picnic basket and even flipped upside-down to make an impromptu picnic table.
It comes in black, white and green, complete with a set of hooks for attaching to your bicycle and it costs £64.20.
You can buy the basket from Made in Design here

A limited edition reissue, this much loved basketball shoe and pre-cursor to the classic Clyde is back with an original shape and colourway, specifically white with a deep red stripe on the side and heel, gold slipping in for the branding.
The upper is a premium leather and the price online is £55.
