Rimowa debuts four distinct new colours for summer. Coral, hogs the spotlight, and is inspired by Pink Lake in Western Australia. Slate is inspired by the chalky greys of Indonesian mines, and Sage depicts the lushness of England’s Lake District. Saffron is reminiscent of Tuscany’s rolling fields of canola flowers. www.rimowa.com

Silk Road

Bulgari’s The Salomé Scarves Collection pays tribute to powerful female heroines, such as Gustav Klimt’s muse or the femme fatales found in Oscar Wilde’s dramas. Recreated by textile designer Orazio Stasi, these wearable works of art combine eastern inspiration and Roman culture with a modern, urban approach, with motifs that allow for endless styling options — although they’d just as well adorn a gallery wall. www.bulgari.com
