Leopard Print Driving Gloves from Agent Provocateur


When it comes to the smaller accessories it's often much easier to get away with a bigger statement, which is perfect for the more daring retro looks out there. These Leopard Print Driving Gloves from Agent Provocateur provide a lot of luxury in one small package, with an obvious vintage influence thrown in.

Gloves may have fallen out of regular favour, but a pair like these are good enough to find an occasion for. Made from a leopard print calf hair fabric, the red accents add a kitschy retro glamour that avoids being tacky thanks to the superb cut and quality.

They're available online from Net-a-Porter for £250.

Pocket Classics – working half-scale versions of classic cars


Ever dreamt of owning a Porsche Speedster, a Mercedes 300SL, a Jaguar E-Type or a vintage Jeep? Well, that dream might be a little nearer with Pocket Classics.

From the name, you might expect these to be toy cars for your desk. Oh no – these are working replicas of classic cars, but at half scale. Take your pick from the four models mentioned above (none of them branded for legal reasons), each one faithfully recreated with a composite GRP body shell, steel chassis, twin rear hydraulic disk brakes, and semi automatic gearbox. There's also  working headlights, indicators and horn, with a top speed of 46mph.

All cars are built to order, but it's worth noting that they are toys. So not road legal. Which means the £9,995 price of each one will undoubtedly make it the most expensive toy you ever buy. See the website for images of the other models on offer.
