Porsche has introduced two bicycle designs, both inspired by the fluid lines of its iconic 911 automobile. The Porsche Bike RS racer (above) is equipped with a carbon-fiber frame, Magura hydraulic disc brakes and a 20-speed Shimano gear system for road warriors who like to power their own way. $8,000; porsche-bike.com

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoPlay 8 (above, left) makes a striking statement whether it’s hung on the wall or placed in a room (sound can be optimized for both). It also makes your iPhone, iPad or iPad Mini playlist come alive, wirelessly or via a built-in dock. Speakers are available in a rainbow of colors to go with any décor. $1,149. bang-olufsen.com

Skiers and snowboarders can record still and video images on the slopes hands-free with Liquid Image’s Apex HD+ Wi-Fi Snow Goggles, which contain an HD, Wi-Fi-enabled camera. The goggles’ rotating, 135-degree wide-angle lens captures all the action; images and videos with sound can be streamed live or downloaded. Available in black or white (above, left). $400; liquidimageco.com

The age-old game gets even more intriguing with Alexandra Llewellyn’s handmade backgammon set (left). The zebrano wood board contains inlay hand-painted with peacock feathers and comes with antique weighted playing pieces. Available through Bespoke Global; $3,400. bespokeglobal.com

Henri Bendel’s Tough Girl Pearl Lariat (left) is a playful combination of Swarovski elements and glass pearls hung on a 16-inch, gold-plated brass chain. At Tysons Galleria; $178. henribendel.com

David Yurman’s Labyrinth Collection includes rings (left, below, top to bottom) in Citrine, Prasiolite and Amethyst surrounded by pave diamonds. Price on request at David Yurman in Tysons Galleria. davidyurman.com

Step into spring with Jean Paul Gaultier’s floral dress with ruching and a lace accent along the front (below, left). Made in Italy; $585. Online only; bloomingdales.com

Salvatore Ferragamo’s Mini Bag (below, left) delivers high style in a compact, seven-by-five-inch package. Made in Italy of Saffiano leather, it comes in Lava (above), Porcellana, Vanilla and Nero. $595; bloomingdales.com
