Royal Selangor's tributes to Battersea Power Station

The Battersea Power Station, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, is one of the British capital's most conspicuous buildings. The building's quartet of elegant white chimneys is a prominent feature on the banks of the Thames. The power station opened in the early 1930s and remained in operation for 5 decades. Today, the building is refurbished and is the heart of a vibrant commercial and residential precinct. The regenerated Battersea Power Station is host to a unique blend of restaurants, shops and cultural spaces - one of which is Royal Selangor, set to open in September this year. To commemorate the opening, Royal Selangor introduces the understated Battersea capsule collection, comprising lifestyle essentials and décor, that pays homage to the heritage building.

Opticaid proud of new collection

Opticaid UK is proud of its first eco collection of fashion reading glasses and sunglasses. There's over 30 reading glasses and 20 sunglasses made from recycled water bottles and car head light surrounds. The readers are available in six reading strengths and retail from £14 and the sunglasses all with UV400 lenses, from £15. The recycled water bottles are cleaned and shredded into pellets, then coloured and melted to create new frames. The resulting modified polycarbonate material is tough, heat resistant and lightweight – a win win for eyewear. Whilst the lenses are still made from new "virgin" material the team are looking to change this in the future as technological advances are made.
