WHERE WOOD MEETS WATER

 

Introducing the new Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giò ABSOLU – celebrating the union of water and wood. ABSOLU is the 3rd chapter in the Acqua di Giò story and has a natural, masculine authenticity about it that gives it a timeless and trans-generational appeal.

Using marine notes and patchouli, a new bold yet refined fragrance has been created. The patchouli provides the perfect balance between the aquatic fragrance and the woody aromas, creating true masculinity with a sensual twist.

The bottle, in keeping with its predecessors, is refined yet masculine and features a lacquered and engraved wooden cap with a cool metal collar – the perfect addition to any man’s scent collection.

NEW MOON - NEW WATCH

With a New Moon looming it’s a good time to consider the new RAYMOND WEIL maestro Moon Phase, a classically styled timepiece featuring an elegant moon phase indicator. A complication synchronizing the rhythms of time with the poetry of the stars, developed in the pure Swiss watchmaking tradition.

Created with all the horological expertise we expect of Swiss luxury watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL, the watch presents itself with a delicate wave-like decorated blue, silver or grey dial, sleek Roman numeral hour markers and elegant hands displaying time in complete harmony. Perfecting the maestro Moon Phase is the matching blue genuine leather strap or steel mesh-type bracelet.

A stellar timepiece in every sense.

REIMAGINED FOR HIP-HOP ROYALTY

The PUMA Suede was born in Germany in 1968. Eight years later (also in Germany), MCM’s Visetos Monogram Logo made its debut. And both have been ‘rocked’ by hip-hop royalty across the decades.

Today in celebration of the iconic PUMA Suede’s 50th anniversary these two legends collide in the PUMA X MCM Suede – adorned with luxury fashion house MCM’s monogram and reimagined for the hip-hop royalty of today.

Available in two colour options in brown/black and white/grey with co-brand insoles, leather laces and a gold plate on each tongue the Puma x MCM Suede launches alongside a Track Jacket and Track Pants boasting the unique MCM print.

The PUMA x MCM limited-edition collection is now available at the PUMA SELECT store in Braamfontein and X-Trend stores.

LET'S TALK ABOUT SOCKS

As with most things quality and price go hand in hand. But just because socks aren’t always seen, it doesn’t mean you should skimp. Men today are looking for quality in things you can and cannot see – it’s about how they feel. And well-made socks make a world of a difference on your hard-working feet.

Since they’re a necessity, consider giving the unsung heroes of your wardrobe a well-deserved upgrade. Enter luxury sock brand FALKE.

Our favourites in the FALKE AW18 collection are undoubtedly the Tweed Rib Anklet and super-versatile Argyle Anklet. Available in a selection of colours, they’ll give your sock collection a stylish update.

Grooming: MID YEAR FRAGRANCE UPDATE

Written by | Found in: Grooming | Posted on: 6 Jun 2018 - 10:24 am

ON THE PULSE

For the past few years, the trend in the best cologne for men has been big, bold smells. Think rich musk, velvety ouds and heavy leathers. Brave stuff as far as fragrance goes.

Lately however, lighter scents with more minerally notes have been wafting through. Either way, try the new breeds of vibrant aromas to counteract winter’s dark days.

Here are our picks of new colognes for men, starting with the lighter stuff and finishing with those heavier options.

LE PARFUM - OLFACTORY NOBLENESS

 

In the wake of BLEU DE CHANEL Eau de Toilette, composed in 2010 by Jacques Polge, and BLEU DE CHANEL Eau de Parfum 2014, BLEU DE CHANEL now journeys into the uncharted territory of Parfum.

In 2018, BLEU DE CHANEL Parfum adjusts the proportions of wood and citrus of the two previous interpretations to create a denser, more intense trail that nevertheless expresses its delicateness.

This new fragrance unleashes all the power of BLEU DE CHANEL Perfumer-creator Olivier Polge chose to evoke a serene intensity that gradually fills the space with its incredibly refined presence – an olfactory nobleness that establishes its authority without any fuss.

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.
