TOM TAILOR DENIM AW15

Judging by TOM TAILOR Denim’s 2015 Autumn/Winter Collection, this winter will be anything but dull. Modest is out, impact is in!

Tom Tailor fans can look forward to a collection that resonates with all things manly and rugged. Traditional work wear pieces take on a rustic, grungy edge and the denim offering gets “rawer” including trendy “royal” tones. If you’re a lover of the checked shirt, (who isn’t?) you’ll be spoiled for choice. There’s also a great selection of cool sweatshirts and t-shirts that feel even better than they look!

Next time you’re trawling the malls make sure you pop into a Tom Tailor Denim store and stock up on a few gems.

DA BOMB!

A regular fixture on the runways for the past few years, the Bomber jacket grabs the limelight this season, becoming the go-to outerwear option. Available in an array of fabrications from leather to cotton, trimmed with fur or quilted, designers the world over have been tweaking this much-loved classic, finding new ways to make it their own.

How to wear it? Dressed down with a pair of jeans and sneakers, or smartened up with a button-down shirt and cropped trousers. There is no doubt the Bomber will live on into the summer months ahead – consider it an investment piece that will work for most of the year.

HERITAGE IN THE HOOD

The streets of Braamfontein are buzzing with style and another notable addition to the offering is The HERITAGE concept store.  Launched by The Scottish Group last October, The HERITAGE store, based on a multi-brand offering of curated product, presents a selection of some of the hippest international brands around like Ben Sherman, Palladium Boots, K-Swiss and proudly South African brand Toe Porn socks.

For Interiors fans a trip to the store is just as important – sporting a black and white theme with checkered floor, graffiti and a wall mural of elements of the featured brands – it’s retail at it’s coolest.

  • Narciso Rodriguez Pour Homme Eau De Parfum, Musc Collection, 100ml EDP, R865, Selected Retailers

SCENT OF SEDUCTION

 

When Narciso Rodriguez developed the Musc Collection he clearly intended to create a scent that would resonate with men today. The result is something that’s masculine yet doesn’t smell like a bar of soap or a fresh produce aisle.

A strong musk punch combined with spicy pink pepper brings a whack of sensuality to the aroma – perfect for a flirtatious night out on the town. Yes, a night out – this intoxicating parfum is best added to your “after dark arsenal”.

THE ROLLS ROYCE OF SKINCARE

 

La Prairie introduces a new serum – Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster. It works from within to build up the skins surface layer, creating a line-free appearance in just 2 weeks according to La Prairie trials, making it the brands fastest inceptor yet.

Think of it like this; thanks to an advanced delivery system – a bit like a GPS – peptides (combinations of amino acids which provide building blocks of protein to repair the skin) are transported directly to the fibroplast area of the skin where the good stuff like collagen and elastin are produced.

Combined with a pure source of bio energy that acts like a battery charger, reactivating the skin to rebuild itself naturally and a neuro calming peptide helps the skin perform as it did at a younger age.

  • Boss Bottled Intense 50ml EDT, RSP R840 and100ml EDT, RSP R1120
    Available at selected Edgars, Red Square, Truworths and Stuttafords

BOSS BOTTLED GETS INTENSE

17 years ago men everywhere started wearing Boss Bottled. We’re guessing they’re all grown up now and luckily, so has our favourite Boss fragrance.

Brand new in 2015, Boss Bottled INTENSE is a refined, shall we say slightly grown-up, interpretation of the original Boss Bottled of 98.

The fragrance, still luxurious and manly, is less sweet than the original – woodier and spicier, with a higher concentration of scented oils, clove and cinnamon.

If you loved it then, you’ll love it now. And if you haven’t yet tried either – well, let’s just say you’re losing out.
