Users can find the company’s first electric production vehicle – the Ioniq 5 N – and a high-performance hydrogen fuel cell hybrid (the N Vision 74) that can hit 155 mph.

Loewe is a mind-bending fashion house that can’t stop going viral. Now, it's released a calming natural wax candle to expand on its greater fragrance line. Wrapped in a glazed green terracotta base, the jade-green candle features ripe cucumber and fresh mint notes. The brand’s creative director Jonathan Anderson teamed up with perfumer Nuria Cruelles to work on this release, which currently tails for $120 to $253 from the brand’s website.
Look no further than the Studebaker Metals Divot Tool if you want to round out a gift for your favorite golf lover. The sleek, solid brass divot tool is hand-forged and stamped with the brand’s signature cross hammers hallmark – but users can also opt to add a sleek two-letter monogram. Uncoated and unpolished, the tool’s ‘work patina’ finish allows for a more rustic look that will evolve over time. The tool is available for purchase for just $88 and includes the cost of monogramming the metal.
Casa Noble is a purveyor of strictly premium 100 percent blue agave tequila and remains one of the few certified organic tequilas on the market. Its newest spirit, “Marqués de Casa Noble,” is made from a blend of 21 añejos and extra añejos, aged anywhere from one to five years. The spirit is rich and balanced with notes of cooked agave, vanilla, and roasted nuts and finishes smooth with hints of white chocolate and spice. A limited number of bottles are available for purchase at $170 in select cities across the country.
The SS22 SP x Pendleton Towel Blanket was crafted with thick loopback cotton to create a comfortable towel blanket that is both absorbent and cozy. The fabric will help you quickly towel off on any beach or river trip while lending an ultra-soft feel and all the warmth and comfort you’ve come to expect from a Pendleton blanket. It also features a unique pattern that subtly features hidden Snow Peak gear items in two bright colorways. The blanket retails for $135 from the Snow Peak site, but users can also shop for a compact hand towel and wool blanket from the same collab.
To celebrate the brand’s tenth anniversary, Autodromo is re-releasing an updated version of its Vallelunga. The original Vallelunga launched as one of the brand’s first timepieces, and the updated version now features a smaller (40mm) 316L stainless steel case. Autodromo has also opted for an automatic movement to replace the original Quartz movement with a Miyota 8315 automatic, powering the new edition with a 60-hour power reserve. The new Vallelunga is available in three colorways for $695 at the brand’s site.
