THE MULTITASKER

From closing a business deal to whipping up some haute cuisine, The Multitasker is a dab hand at anything and everything

02 June, 2021

 

From morning to night, The Multitasker spins all the plates and, miraculously, never drops any. What’s the secret behind this force of nature? Discipline, organisation, a can-do mind-set and an arsenal of items carefully selected to aid efficiency and emanate an aura of self-assurance, whatever the day may throw at them.


ON THE MARK

Oxford Tie in silk jacquard navy, £130, Church’s

A smart appearance is paramount to The Multitasker, putting them in the right frame of mind for a productive day ahead. This silk tie from Church’s strikes the perfect balance of smart-casual with a textured ribbed effect that softens its block colour to create a wearable everyday staple.


BELT UP

Half Cod 38 Reversible Belt, £830, Hermès

Stylish and versatile, this reversible leather belt from Hermès works for both business and casualwear: an optimal addition to The Multitasker’s wardrobe. Saving time on decision-making when getting dressed means more time for getting on with the day’s activities.


TAKE NOTE

Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Classique Rollerball, £460, Montblanc

This trustworthy rollerball pen, from writing instrument specialists Montblanc, is more than meets the eye. Its design is inspired by the beloved children’s book Le Petit Prince, by the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, which tells the tale of a little boy from another planet who travels the universe in search of wisdom and meaning. A functional tool and a bedtime story all in one item make this pen the perfect item for The Multitasker’s pocket.


TICK TOCK

Summit 2 smart watch in stainless steel and black bi-colour and leather, £880, Montblanc

The classic design of this wristwatch belies its smart-tech functionality. With sensors to monitor heartrate, direction, speed and altitude, and a microphone for voice commands, it’s The Multitasker’s multifunctional best friend. Providing sleep and activity tracking alongside access to a large variety of apps, including for fitness and jetlag, it’s been designed to support a busy and varied lifestyle. Oh, and you can check the time on it too.


TO THE POINT

Sterling Silver Paper Knife, £195, Searle and Co.

Speed is of the essence for The Multitasker, and well-chosen tools that aid efficiency will always be well received, especially if they look stylish too. The design of this sterling silver paper knife from Searle & Co. is based on that of a Georgian meat skewer and will make light and pleasant work of the daily admin.
