  • GET GROOMED: STRESS FREE SHAVING

FACING THE BLADE!

First thing in the morning, you’re dragging a sharp blade across your face, around your neck, dipping into crevices around your chin. But many men are guilty of bad shaving habits (if not daily then surely occasionally) that contribute to the unhealthy condition of their skin. Old blades, poor prep and shaving with cheap foam or worse yet soap wreak havoc on the skin resulting in painful and unsightly razor burn, bumps and inflammation.

Face it – the practice of shaving can be a stressful and sometimes painful exercise. Herewith, everything you need to know to make the process (and your shave) as smooth as possible.

VELVET WOOD - LUXURY IN A BOTTLE

Evoking personal memories and in particular the travels of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection of perfumes is an exquisite and evocative olfactory journey.

Each scent from the Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection is the fruit of dedicated research into the ancient essences of Italian tradition, reinterpreted using contemporary perfume-making techniques, taking the wearer on an unprecedented olfactory journey to discover the origins and the history of Dolce&Gabbana.

One of our favourites from the Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection is undoubtedly Velvet Wood, inspired by ebony, noble furnishings, stately Sicilian homes and the scent of lacquered wood paneling. Warm, woody and sensual it’s the perfect scent for the cooler months ahead.

Fashion: H&M ANNOUNCES MOSCHINO COLLABORATION

#HMxMOSCHINO

In their long history of designer collaborations, H&M hasn’t really missed a beat. The Swedish giant’s new designer collaboration is with the Italian luxury house Moschino, headed by highflier, Jeremy Scott.

The collection includes womenswear and menswear, as well as a few other as-yet-to-be-divulged components. “There’s a silver sequined parka dress,” says Scott. “Denim pieces are all twisted into something else. Puffers and jackets are reconfigured into cropped things or double-long things. There’s a sportswear-with-evening kind of feeling, like a hockey jersey with a train.” He also flags a CD print, which is “archival from Franco . Sometimes I reconfigure something from the history, but sometimes it’s perfect as is.”

The line, called Moschino H&M, will drop on November 8; the news was announced late Saturday night, with a little help from Gigi Hadid, at Scott’s 11th annual party held around the Coachella music festival.

THE BK2WRK EDITION

When it comes to your career, don’t underestimate the power of looking polished. Whether it’s the first interview with your boss, an important client presentation, or even post-work drinks with your colleagues, how you present yourself and how you’re perceived, can make all the difference in getting ahead.

It is in your teens and early twenties that you can lay the foundation of great skincare and ensure your work is a lot easier by the time you hit forty.
Start with the basics; cleanse and moisturize daily and don’t leave home without applying SPF.
It’s as simple as that.

ESSENCE OF THE OCEAN

Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve is a new version of the popular masculine aquatic fragrance from Bvlgari, Aqua Pour Homme and created by the same master perfumer and famous “nose” Jacques Cavallier.

We have no doubt just like its predecessor Aqva Pour Homme, Atlantiqve is set to score high in the popularity stakes.

It’s a refreshing and energetic “aquatic” fragrance inspired by the strength of the Atlantic Ocean. Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon and a “vital water” accord give it fresh zesty top notes. At its heart a “sea amber” note developed by Jacques Cavallier evokes the depths of the ocean and woody vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli give the blend masculine appeal.
