30TH ANNIVERSARY WIMBLEDON WIN

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Boris Becker’s famous Wimbledon win – at 17 Becker was the youngest player to win the men’s singles title – PUMA have released a series of animated films created by French illustrator, Ruben Gerard.

The films display Gerard’s retro-futurist and sculptural approach that accompany original commentary and sound bites from the match. The film also highlights the Becker OG shoe that he wore, as well the PUMA Match, a style born on the court but now a lifestyle sneaker that showcases PUMA’s heritage of unmatched on-court glory and off-court style.

  • 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 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.

A SIMPLER TIME FOR MEN'S WATCHES

To simplify the transition for you, we showcase a selection of the finest timepieces by Danish brand SKAGEN – a contemporary lifestyle brand rooted in simplicity. Combining the inspiration of timeless Danish craftsmanship with thoughtful innovation, SKAGEN creates high-quality products that are both functional and elegant, whilst echoing the simplicity and tranquility of the seaside village of Skagen.
