Up Your Purchasing Power with These Precious Picks

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Celebrate the start of a new season with fall’s most fabulous finds, from two extra-special anniversary collections to a cool collaboration from across the pond.

1 While your day job may be more i-banking than international espionage, toting Tumi’s new Tegra-Lite bulletproof attaché is one way to add a little Bond to your business attire. Though it’s crafted from a revolutionary (not to mention virtually indestructible) material developed by Milliken, savvy details like chrome hardware, leather siding and luxe lining make this limited-edition piece strong and chic ($5,995).

2 Renowned the world over for that signature blue box, Tiffany & Co. commemorates 175 years of setting hearts aflutter with a collection of one-of-a-kind jewels, launching this fall. Each piece pays tribute to the house’s passion for exotic gemstones—like the dazzling morganite (named for longtime Tiffany customer and gem collector John Pierpont Morgan in 1910) that adorns this diamond and platinum Tiffany Anniversary Morganite necklace ($275,000).

3 Serious connoisseurs know that their most treasured collectibles deserve an equally impressive showcase. Designed to house all of your prized possessions in one extraordinary high-security storage center, the Treasury from Buben & Zorweg boasts a humidor, a bar module for wines and spirits, and a state-of-the-art unit that holds either four or 16 watches, in addition to a high-end hi-fi media center with wireless streaming ($325,000).

4 Posh perfumer Diptyque traveled far and wide for its latest fragrance: Inspired by house founder Yves Coueslant’s childhood expeditions, Volutes evokes the enchantment of the voyage from Marseilles to Saigon via transatlantic ocean liner. Notes of tobacco, spicy pink and black pepper, and immortelle and myrrh add up to a truly unforgettable olfactory journey, designed to be enjoyed by both men and women (100mL eau de toilette, $120).

5To celebrate Bergdorf Goodman’s 111th birthday this September, New York’s most-loved luxury department store enlisted over 100 designers to create an exclusive anniversary collection. Must-haves include everything from evening gowns to eau de parfum from big names like Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior—not bad for a centenarian (alligator doctor’s bag by Tom Ford, $29,600).

6 When it comes to authentic English luxury, few labels are more recognizable—or more storied—than John Lobb and Aston Martin. In the first product of a perfectly fitting new partnership, the Brit brands have unveiled the Winner Sport, an ultra-lightweight driver’s shoe. Its sleek design recalls the smooth lines and sumptuous interiors of the automaker’s classic sports cars, while supple, full-grain leathers in eight exclusive shades highlight John Lobb’s commitment to artisanal craftsmanship ($970).
