Tour Triangle: Paris's controversial new skyscraper — An incongruous new addition is set to puncture the 19th-century Hausmann buildings that make up the Paris skyline: a 180-metre-tall, glass-panelled triangular tower. The first skyscraper to be built in the city in over 40 years, the controversial Tour Triangle has been designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and will stand in the Porte de Versailles in the 15th arrondissement; it is scheduled for completion in 2018.

Men's summer swimming shorts: five of the best — Frescobol Carioca Noronha shorts; £135 Brazilian beachwear brand Frescobol Carioca draws its design inspiration from the exuberance of Rio de Janeiro. Now available in the UK, this season's range features a medley of designs that incorporate the mosaic artwork of the architect Roberto Burle Marx.

Access all areas on John Legend's private jet trip — Toronto-based Four Seasons last year announced that it would launch the hotel industry's first fully branded private jet in 2015. Now in service, it looks like the jet is set to cater for a creatively minded contingent following the announcement that the singer John Legend has helped to structure and will lead The Legend Experience, an 11-day trip that will this September take travellers on a journey "designed to nourish the mind, body and soul."

Europe's highest afternoon tea at London's Shard — Could there be a better eyrie from which to sip afternoon tea? With picnic rug underfoot and clear blue skies above, yesterday evening I settled down to one of the first Fortnum & Mason afternoon teas to be served at the peak of London's Shard skyscraper, some 800ft (or 244 metres) above the city.

Transport for London reveals London's first Night Tube map — Londoners rejoiced when Transport for London (TfL) last year announced that certain Tube lines would run over the entire weekend from September 2015 onwards. With the official Night Tube map and details of train frequency now released, the city's residents can assess how useful the service is likely to be in practice.

London sunset timelapse from the Shard — As Western Europe's tallest building, at 1,016ft (306m), London's Shard skyscraper offers various vantage points from which to watch the world go by. But where, one wonders, might be the best position to watch the sun set on the longest day of the year?

The concierges' guide to Kuala Lumpur — Founded in the late-1800s, Kuala Lumpur is one of the world's great culinary destinations as well as a gateway to Malaysia's hideaway resorts and 878 islands. The launch of direct British Airways flights from London Heathrow to Kuala Lulmpur means the city is now easier to reach, too.

London's best parks for picnics — One of the smaller royal parks but undoubtedly one of London's most inviting green spaces, St James's Park stands surrounded by regal elegancy. Buckingham Palace lies at one edge, Horse Guards Parade at another and the Mall runs along one side.

The Monaco 2050 superyacht private-jet set — A superyacht built and decorated to their precise specifications remains an enduringly popular indulgence among the world's richest, and the unparalleled degree of personalisation they can avail of means their purchases can vary drastically from one another.

Inside the Shangri-La Suite at the Shard, London — It costs couples from £14,000 per night to stay in the Shangri-La Suite at London's Shangri-La hotel, but that premium does at least secure them what is indisputably the best view offered by any hotel room in the city.
