Elements of life
Ermenegildo Zegna has a new fragrance collection for men
The sophisticated man is symbolised by strength, passion, integrity, talent and wisdom. These qualities are bottled into Ermenegildo Zegna’s Elements of Man: The Life Collection. The five new fragrances are:

Tobacco leaves are fused with notes of golden honey to signify strength. Ripe apricot brings out the depth of agarwood while deep smoke penetrates the intricate scent of pine needles.

Notes of olibanum along with rich rum and smooth cognac are given a lift with exotic saffron.

Clary sage is blended with pink pepper spices while summer-ripe pimento berries are cooled by the shade of lasting green notes such as the African geranium.

Asian yuzu is freshened by strokes of bright Sichuan pepper and bergamot while black tea seeps deeply into the canvas of patchouli stretched over a robust frame of cedarwood.

Get a lift with citrus — Italian mandarin and winter lemon, green verbena, coriander leaves, French lavender, neroli and musk.

The capsule collection
The Balenciaga men spring/summer 2018 capsule collection has a range of ready-to-wear pieces and leather goods adorned with the Balenciaga logo, as well as graphic designs. Sneakers in new colours are also available to match the collection.

Luxury sneakers
Go casual but still appear stylish with the B21 sneakers by Dior Homme. The footwear is available in black, black/grey and red and is the perfect match for tailored trousers or designer jeans.

Go wireless
The Beoplay E8 wireless headphones promise a seamless listening experience and deliver up to four hours of music on one charge. For two additional charges, simply snap the earpieces into the pocket-friendly charging case. Each pair of headphones is tuned by Bang & Olufsen’s sound engineers for a rich, full-bodied and precise soundstage that will leave your ears wanting more.

A whole new world
The new Bravia A1 OLED TV is designed to fit any interior. This home entertainment system is modelled after Sony’s “Slice of Living” concept — where practicality, aesthetics and minimalism are key design elements. It uses OLED display technology, which carries all the different functions within the screen itself, eliminating the need for speakers, a bezel or a stand. Sound is incorporated into the screen with the new Acoustic Surface technology, which generates sound through vibrations of the screen.

Into the cold
Uniqlo’s hot new items will help keep you warm during your year-end holidays in colder countries. Check out the heat-tech range of clothing such as beanies, socks, fleece jackets and overcoats at Uniqlo stores.
