Making Waves

The good life in toys and fashion

The 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid is Porsche’s first plug-in hybrid. The sporty new model boasts a more powerful electric motor and a higher-performance lithium-ion battery than the 2013 model, and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. $99,000;

D’Agostino’s Momentum Preamplifier pleases the most discriminating audiophiles. With its copper accents, the preamp complements the company’s Momentum amplifier and comes with a radio-frequency remote. $32,000;

Denon’s Music Maniac Artisan Headphones deliver a studio-quality listening experience. A special 50-mm Nano Fiber driver matches the performance of a loudspeaker while memory-foam ear pads and socket ear cup design provide a perfect fit for every user. $1,199; 

Basis’s award-winning personal health tracker helps users optimize their physical activity and sleep quality by monitoring heart rate patterns, motion, perspiration and skin temperature throughout the day. A lightweight wristband reports data to a dashboard on a computer or mobile device that suggests ways to improve health and performance. $199;

Designer Marissa Webb is making waves on the runways with her fall/winter collection that puts a modern twist on classic haberdashery. Pictured here, Vera shearling turtleneck top ($1,985); Sasha silk wool blouse in Glacier ($570); Eugenia skirt ($645); and Willa pointy toe heel ($498).

Named for the Greek goddess of the sea, H.Stern’s new Iris collection interprets the forms of underwater creatures. The Axis earrings ($1,400) and necklace ($3,400), crafted of rose gold with diamonds, are reminiscent of snail shells.

Zac Zac Posen’s Eartha snake-embossed satchel makes a great segue into fall. The embossed-leather bag has a single-top handle and adjustable shoulder strap. $495;
