Customise your Berluti leather goods and shoes in gold
Kick off the Lunar New Year with style. Berluti is welcoming the Year of the Dog by offering a complimentary patina service in the auspicious colour of gold on products found in its Venezia Scritto collection.

Personalise the Nino GM Scritto Swift, which is adorned with the signature Scritto script engraved onto Venezia leather, with gold. A lightweight and elegant document holder, the Nino GM Scritto Swift is also the perfect carry case for a 10in tablet computer.

A strong statement piece in any professional environment, the Un Jour Scritto briefcase will be available in gold patina, alongside the sophisticated Tobacco Bis and Nero Venezia leather options. Introduced in 2007, the briefcase has become one of Berluti’s emblematic silhouettes, roomy enough for documents and a 15in laptop. The added pop of gold will certainly make it stand out.

Berluti’s Chinese New Year complimentary gold patina service will be available until end-February.

40 years in world of racing
To celebrate Renault’s 40th anniversary in Formula 1, Bell & Ross has designed a model inspired by the R.S.01, the carmaker’s first single-seater from 1977. The BR126 Renault Sport features elements inspired by the DNA of the first Formula 1 races. A 41mm case made from satin-finish steel and a striking black-and-yellow dial pays homage to the Renault Sport Formula One Team. The timer is black on a yellow strip, reminiscent of the hatched decoration of Formula 1 in the 1970s. Reinforcing the vintage look of this piece are its ultra-domed crystal, rubber bracelet and the shape of its horns. The BR126 Renault Sport is a limited edition with 170 pieces — the number of Renault victories in Formula 1.

For today’s man
Confident and contemporary, clean lines make BOSS Bottled by Hugo Boss an iconic classic. The fresh and sensuous notes of the fragrance exude distinction, sophistication and joie de vivre. The base note is decidedly male, a harmony of sandalwood, cedar and vetiver. The elegant, woody accords reflect a complex structure that is as versatile and rich as the man who wears it. Hour by hour, the scent unfolds and takes on a different quality that inspires and stays with the BOSS man throughout his day.
