FIRST INSTINCT

Naturally sexy and confident, a rugged risk-taker with disarming charm? If that’s you then Abercrombie & Fitch’s new fragrance ‘First Instinct’ is the one you’ve been waiting for. It’s a scent-sual interpretation of that first moment of attraction when two people’s worlds collide and sparks fly!

With a base of amber and musk, Szechuan pepper in the mid- notes, and gin & tonic and melon to finish off the sensory experience in the top notes, ‘First Instinct’ is modern, masculine and sexy. It’s minimalist bottle shape, utilitarian metal cap and branded plate make a manly statement.

A sensual fougère-oriental ‘First Instinct’ is sexy, addictive and irresistible. Sound like you? You’re in luck – ‘First Instinct’ is now available in stores.

  • LEVI’S® LINE 8 COLLECTION

YOUTHFUL. MODERN. FORWARD THINKING.

The Levi’s® Line 8 Collection is progressive expression of the denim giant itself inspired by the young and rebellious. The collection offers a cohesively modern aesthetic that’s understated, new and now.

Here’s what to look forward to – a late 80’s inspired Line 8 Trucker jacket in two really cool washes; the classic Levi’s® one-pocket shirt gets updated with a modern, shorter collar; and new Line 8 trouser includes all the right finishes: tapered leg, cuffed ankle and sateen fabric for a clean look and comfortable, soft feel.

How do you to spot the Levi’s® Line 8 collection? Look for a black Levi’s® tag instead of the classic red tag.

  • ARTHUR JACK LUCA BOOT, R1 299, TREAD+MILLER

REBOOT THE CHELSEA

Chelsea boots, with equestrian origins dating back to Queen Victoria, were popularised by The Beatles and got their name from the 1960’s Chelsea Set.  Consider them a bona fide rock-star addition to your shoe collection.

Comfortable and sleek, Chelsea boots are characterised by an elastic gusset on the side. They’re this season’s essential boot and look just as good with slick tailoring as they do jeans and a leather jacket.

CHANEL PRESENTS…

…its new advertising campaign for CHANEL ALLURE HOMME SPORT, filmed by the talented young photographer and director Jacob Sutton. CHANEL chose Jacob Sutton for his modern, elegant style and for the technical artistry of his work.

This new campaign includes three films that are both spectacular and unexpected. Each illustrates a sport where man encounters nature with boldness and prowess: diving, downhill skateboarding and horseback riding.

For this campaign, CHANEL chose three new faces: Hugo Parisi, a professional diver from Brazil; Adam Crigler, an equally professional American skateboarder; and Luke Grimes, a young American actor.
