RAKE COMMENDS CEDES Milano travelling wine box For spontaneous pit stops in the desert, you’ll need a pigskinbound wooden wine box complete with palladium treated brass hinges and locks. Coming with two wine glasses and a watertight cap, the box features one of CEDES’s signature stag antler handles for added opulence. CT Cutler and Gross 1007 dark turtle sunglasses One shouldn’t overlook what is the most important of headwear accessories: sunglasses. These Cutler and Gross frames owe their vintage styling to the past, yet their polished metal bridge gives them a contemporary edge. The tortoiseshell colouring complements neutral tailoring and the handfinished Italian acetate ensures a quality that will stand the test of time. CT CEDES Milano Butler’s Friend corkscrew An invaluable tool for the travelling rake, this handmade corkscrew can be specified in either springbok horn, bamboo, stag antler or roe deer horn. Crafted in CEDES’s Milan atelier, it features a stainless-steel bottle opener, corkscrew and miniature pocket knife for maximum wine-opening versatility. CT Smythson Mara travel backgammon set Should one need to resort to haggling in a souk, a backgammon set is a must — perfect for taking on the locals. This roll-up travel set from Smythson is cut from the finest crocodile-printed calf’s leather and lined in nubuck, so at least it will look like you know what you’re doing. AC Bell & Ross BR 03-94 Desert Type chronograph Any timepiece that’s going to travel needs to be robust, and if there’s one brand with a heritage suited to the task, it’s Bell & Ross. Their new Desert Type series epitomises the qualities needed: durability, functionality, and practicality of design. What’s more, the BR 03-94 chronograph brings with it a touch of audacity thanks to its complications. AC Floris Santal eau de toilette On humid, tropical travels, a cleansing splash of the right scent can make all the difference to how one feels (and whiffs). Floris’s exotic Santal eau de toilette, with a crisp series of notes ranging from lemon zest, cardamom, cloves and nutmeg to sandalwood and musk, is both complex and spicy — more than capable of standing up to the Moroccan heat. AC Lock & Co Rollable Superino Montecristi Panama hat Marrakech is noted for its generous amount of sunshine, with an average of 11 hours a day from late spring through summer. This, of course, means one should invest in quality headgear, and what is finer than a Montecristi Superfino Panama hat? This example, by Lock & Co, takes up to six months to weave, and it is rollable, making it ideal for transit. CT 36
