Cars

The Koenigsegg Regera is a gamechanger. Under the hood rests the most downsized homologated internal combustion engine in the world. The twin turbo, DOHC, 5.0-litre V8 engine is compact, lightweight and efficient, but do not doubt its relentless power. With 1,100 Hp and 1,250 Nm of combustion engine torque, this machine can go from zero to 400 kilometres per hour in less than 20 seconds. The world-class engine combined with Koenigsegg’s renowned Electric Drive makes this the most powerful car on the street. One-crank mounted motor and two driveshaft motors, sitting on each rear wheel, have a combined electric propulsion of 820Nm and 520kW. The trio of electric motors provide instant torque and pure power, while maintaining energy efficiency. Add to this the mighty combustion engine, and the Regera is loaded with more than 1,500 Hp.

Not only is the Regera (“to reign” in Swedish) equipped with the instruments to dominate on a race track, but the interior will make every driver feel like royalty. Highlights include adjustable memoryfoam seats, a superior sound system, three camera angles, and the Koenigsegg nine-inch infotainment system. There are plenty of innovative features that separate the Regera from its competitors. One of them is the new powertrain technology – Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission. Invented by Christian von Koenigsegg, the KDD enhances the driving experience in every way. It offers rapid response and performance while revolutionizing the energy efficiency in a hypercar. All body closures on the car can be operated by the touch of a remote or smartphone. The world’s first fully robotized car can also be driven in complete silence while in EV mode for short periods of time. With just 80 vehicles carefully crafted in Angelholm, Sweden, a Regera sighting will be a rare occurrence, but if you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse, do not blink.

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST

MERCEDES AMG G-CLASS: G 63 WHETHER DRIVING THROUGH HARSH PATCHES OF BACKCOUNTRY TERRAIN OR SCREAMING DOWN A WIDE-OPEN FREEWAY, THE MERCEDES-BENZ AMG G63 EXCEEDS ITS SKY-HIGH EXPECTATIONS. By Braydon Holmyard Edited by Shervin Shirvani P.18

G 550 4MATIC


Cars

Mercedes has added power and reduced fuel consumption for the 2016 edition of its SUV. With its 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine, the G63 was built to flat-out perform and can take its owner off-roading with ease. Two turbochargers provide the additional power that demands spontaneous response and gritty traction. The high-performance body and flashy interior and exterior that this series has seen for decades continues thanks to a sturdy base and ladder-type frame, permanent all-wheel drive, and a low-range gearbox, to name but a few features. The ECO start-andstop function offers yet another resource to save fuel by switching off the engine when the vehicle is idling. While the entire G-Class series enjoyed improvements in eco-friendly capabilities, the G63 saw an increase of 20 kW/27 Hp. The updated power numbers remain staggering for this sport utility vehicle: 420 kW/563 Hp with a torque of 561 lb-ft. A redesigned instrument cluster and five exclusive exterior paint finishes for the 2016 AMG model enhance the classic look of this top-of-the-line SUV. A sport edition of the G63 is also available for G-Class lovers looking to mix up the exterior appearance. The Mercedes G63 is designed to dominate, and its high efficiency does not compromise its extreme off-road character. It’s been more than 35 years, but this classic AMG cruiser continues to find ways to get bigger and better.

HOT WHEELS BMW M2

THE M2 COUPE FOLLOWS A LONGSTANDING TRADITION OF STYLE, SPEED, AND COMFORT THAT BMW’S COMPACT SPORTS CARS HAVE OFFERED FOR DECADES.

By Braydon Holmyard It’s the kind of car that turns heads at a red light and draws a crowd in a parking lot. The low front apron with large air intakes, muscular flanks, and 19-inch double-spoke aluminum wheels on this stunning sports car are enough to make jaws drop, but it’s not just a pretty face. Inside the M2 lives a six-cylinder in-line engine combined with TwinPower turbo technology, pushing out up to 365 Hp and 465 Nm of torque. The M2 Coupe has an optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission that changes gears with extraordinary speed and without interruption. That’s part of the reason it can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in a rapid 4.4 seconds. This turbo-powered BMW also has exceptional efficiency ratings with a fuel consumption of 7.9 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of just 185 g/km. The stunning appearance of the lightweight M2 Coupe is paired with a powerful engine designed to give its owner his dream car. Once again, BMW considered everything a driver would want to take to the streets and turned it into a reality on four wheels.

A NEW

MILESTONE

CHANEL HAS ENTERED THE WATCHMAKING BIG LEAGUES THANKS TO A FINE NEW TIMEPIECE MADE FOR MEN. FIVE YEARS AND A TEAM OF EIGHT SPECIALISTS WERE REQUIRED TO DESIGN THIS WATCH THAT ASTONISHES AS MUCH FOR ITS TECHNICAL COMPLEXITY AS FOR ITS SOBER ELEGANCE. NICOLAS BEAU, CEO OF CHANEL'S WATCH DIVISION, IS PROUD AND PASSIONATE AS HE INTRODUCES US TO THIS NEW GEM, SIMPLY KNOWN AS MONSIEUR. By Stéphane Le Duc

Does Monsieur mark a new milestone for Chanel Fine Watchmaking? This is our very first dedicated men's watch. As well, Monsieur contains our first watch movement made completely in-house. For 30 years, our watchmaking activity has involved the manufacture of cases and straps and the setting of gems; the movement has always been the missing element, and we now possess this know-how. Among watchmakers, the creation of movements is a fundamental expertise, and the most respected one, for it is the most complex, and requires abundant modesty, humility and time. I was stunned to discover that it took five years to design and produce Monsieur. First, we put together a team. Although Chanel already employs highly qualified watchmakers, there were some fundamental skills we needed to master before moving forward with design and manufacture. We quickly focused on the watch movement, because that is one of the first challenges to arise when creating a watch. We chose to go with a jumping hour, because numbers are so very symbolic for Chanel. They're like lucky charms, really: 5, 12, 18, 19. So it seemed obvious to express the hour through numerals. The retrogade minute display was a suitable complement, and making the minute jump at the same time as the hour struck us as a great idea. After this was agreed upon, there came the usual de-

velopment process for a high-complication movement: the ideation phase, the prototype phase, and the testing phase—because a million little problems can and do unexpectedly crop up. And then, the finalization phase. We designed absolutely all of the components, which almost never happens. And we started, quite literally, from a blank page. The watch case is remarkably sober. Is there any particular reason for this? It's the result of Chanel's esthetic quest for a contemporary movement. If the round case is so simple, it's precisely because its primary function is to showcase the movement. All the components are revealed through the transparent back cover, and a number of concepts were developed to enhance them. For starters, the bridges are circular and they are almost mistaken for gears. Secondly, black tones are used in a variety of finishes—glossy, satin, matte—to create more contrasts in light and shade, and particularly to make the wheel spokes stand out. Thirdly, we took a page out of the haute couture handbook by surrounding each component in black, to better delineate it. Monsieur also features a couple of recurring Chanel motifs. The octagonal shape of Place Vendôme frames the hour aperture, and also appears on the buckle. Meanwhile, the lion—a powerful, masculine symbol—leaves its imprint on the buckle and the crown, and is also the new seal for Chanel manufacture movements. Though quite complex, the watch is deceptively simple in appearance, in keeping with our philosophy of fostering beauty, simplicity and style.

Watches The watchmaker’s support for cinema takes different forms: the Filmmaker in Residence program in partnership with the Lincoln Center; the recent co-production of the exhibition The Art of Behind the Scenes, held during the recent 54th New York Film Festival and featuring black-and-white photographs taken by some of the world’s most accomplished on-set photographers; and the annual awarding of the Glory to the Filmmaker Award, which pays tribute to the creative ingenuity of filmmakers. Perhaps surprisingly, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s involvement with cinema dates back all the way to 1934, when it helped engineer the highly sophisticated Compass Camera. With its 290 components, the Compass Camera was a true marvel of engineering. Launched in 1937 after three years of development, the camera caused a worldwide sensation for its avant-garde design and its numerous functions. To this day, it is coveted by collectors.

The story of this miniature camera begins with a bet by Noel Pemberton Billing, a British businessman and pilot who founded an aviation company in England, a freight firm in South Africa and a casino in Mexico. This poet, writer and engineer is also credited with at least 100 inventions, including an aircraft that would inspire the famous Spitfire fighter plane. One evening in the late 1920s, this passionate inventor made a bet that he could create a camera of unprecedented quality, comprising every possible function and yet small enough to fit inside a cigarette packet! To win this bet, he enlisted the help of the finest watchmaker of the day. Indeed, by 1934, LeCoultre & Cie (as it was then called) already had hundreds of calibres to its credit, including the world’s small-

LEARNING FROM THE PAST

LEGENDARY JEWELLER TIFFANY & CO. IS FAMOUS FOR ITS DIAMONDS, WEDDING RINGS AND ICONIC BLUE BOX. QUITE ASTONISHINGLY, ITS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE MEN'S WATCH SEGMENT HAVE GONE VIRTUALLY UNNOTICED AS A RESULT OF THE SUCCESS OF ITS JEWELS. YET TIFFANY AND TIMEPIECES GO BACK A LONG WAY. THE VICE PRESIDENT AND GENERAL MANAGER OF SWISS WATCHES FOR TIFFANY & CO., NICOLA ANDREATTA, IS ON A MISSION TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT. By Stéphane Le Duc How do you bring back the credibility of being a real watchmaker? Watches have been a key part of our business since the very beginning. We started selling watches in 1847. I think Charles Lewis Tiffany was a visionary in the sense that he started immediately with a certain quality of watches, establishing a partnership with Patek Phillipe and being the only distributor of the brand in the United States for many years. I think the key word is commitment, and communicating this commitment to the world. We decided to start an operation in Switzerland with people that have been involved with watches since they were born. We like to say that this is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Our decision was to do it in a way that would bring back our credibility: We started to work with mechanical movements, we decided to focus maximum attention on quality and to select the best people to manufacture every single component the way we wanted, and even to communicate about craftsmanship and show we are serious in what we are doing. In terms of design, was it important to make a reference to the history of Tiffany? It was a key thing. I cannot stop saying that moving away from the DNA of a brand is the biggest mistake you can make. To me, the most important thing was to go to the archives. We discovered so many things in the history of Tiffany and watchmaking. Taking that and putting it into our new watches, involving the design and what we have been doing for so many years was a key step for us in in-

P.30

troducing the new collection. We now have more than 400 pieces in our archives and we keep buying at auctions because there are so many things to discover about the brand. Just because we want to bring back that heritage. How do you make the choice for the creation and design of a watch like the CT60, inspired by the vintage Tiffany watch of President Roosevelt? First of all, the fact that we decided to start with men is not the easiest way. It’s kind of a crazy thing for Tiffany because 98% of the customers are women. It shows we are going up the north face of Everest. We are nobody in the world of men’s watches, that's what we started from. Again, it is linked to credibility. We need to talk to men because men like to know what is inside, not only what is outside. To be perceived as a watchmaker we needed to work that way. When we were starting everything, we were contacted by Christie’s and they told us that they had this beautiful piece that had belonged to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. That he was wearing it at the Yalta Conference and other great events. In fact, seven different American presidents wore Tiffany watches in the past. We also realized this watch was the quintessential American design for a watch. Very simple lines, what we called sophisticated simplicity, very open dial, very little use of metal, easy to use, a complication that simplifies life. That’s why we decided to use this American way of designing watches to take a watch that was perfect for 1945 to make a watch that could be perfect for today.

His latest is a cerebral, yet highly entertaining, look at our interaction with extra-terrestrial visitors, starring Amy Adams as a linguist who must find a way of communicating with these newly discovered life forms. The film is remarkable, forming a stunning balance between art film and entertainment, and providing smart sci-fi the likes of which we haven’t seen since Stanley Kubrick.

It’s been eight years since Barry Jenkins’ Medicine for Melancholy caught the attention of festival goers, but Moonlight is sure to garner even more attention. Told over three time periods in a man’s life - young boy, adolescent, grown man - each period echoes the other. It’s a film that’s paradoxically epic in scope and yet intimate. It’s a story rarely told, let alone within the African American context, and it’s handled so well that it results in a breathtaking work.

Loving Jeff Nichols is another iconoclastic director comfortably mixing up genres with the likes of Mud and Take Shelter. With Loving, we get a different tack, a stunningly quiet and intimate look at the Loving family, a mixedraced couple reluctantly caught in the maelstrom of the American legal system. With stellar performances by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga, Loving confidently uses the nature of its real-life central characters to avoid histrionics, making for one of the most moving and impactful films you’re going to see this year.

La La Land After its Venice and Toronto award-winning bows, Damien Chazelle’s follow-up to Whiplash is easily the front-runner for Oscar glory. With deliriously entertaining moments, the musical is an absolute delight, sure to please audiences and jaded critics alike. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling practically dance off the screen, inhabiting a wonderful tale about the passion of artistic achievement and the wistfulness of what could have been. With a small part by J.K. Simmons to boot, this love letter to the likes of Singing In The Rain, Umbrellas of Cherbourg and even Rebel Without A Cause is respectful to the past and very much of the present.

Manchester by the Sea Ken Lonergan’s story of grief and reconciliation is both bleak and beautiful. Casey Affleck is a revelation in his role as Lee Chandler, a New England plumber forced to head back to his hometown to pick up the pieces after a family tragedy. This raw, remarkable drama is emotionally riveting and a master class on how to do misery without being melodramatic. Not just some somber, dour work, there’s real life in these characters, providing a powerful, uplifting rumination on coming to terms with one’s past in order to carve out a better future.

distributors) because those big corporations don’t always think there are enough people to see black/ LGBT stories and the fact is, there is an audience. We’re seeing this with television as well, TV programs are often more direct now than feature films, and I think there's progress being made. The more that decision-makers are aware of the value of inclusion, and the business value of it as well, by reaching more people with what they're most interested in, the more you’ll see a more diverse range of work out there.

"I THINK THE IDEA OF CURATION IS STILL VERY IMPORTANT, IT’S JUST BECOME MORE DEMOCRATIZED." I’ve read that you think there's a decline in film criticism, although it’s not necessarily good or bad. What do you think this means for the film industry? I think we’re in an era now where most of us don’t want to be told what’s good, whether that’s a movie, a restaurant, a song, etc. We want to discover that for ourselves. It does help to have some way to pick what to choose from, but I don’t think having a critic telling you this is the best album of the year is necessarily going to be as followed as it used to be. There’s a lot of other ways to find the stuff you want to consume. What I do think happens when critics lose some of that authority is that it becomes necessary to take some of that out. We’re not telling people that this is the best film based on a personal opinion, we’re curating a group of films that are all very strong, but that speak to different audiences in different ways. Our audience can then choose from that. I think the idea of curation is still very important, it’s just become more democratized. What do you think makes a great film in 2016? I think the same things that made a great film in 1916. I don’t think the elements of great filmmaking have changed that much. You want mastery of the language of cinema, something that connects emotionally/intellectually and some element of something new. I do think, beyond what makes a great film, what makes a successful film has changed now. There's so much competition for people’s attention, people’s attention spans have dramatically shrunk. I think the degree of intensity of the film-watching experience has changed. We want something that feels very new and fresh. The reason why films like Bird Man and Twelve Years a Slave have worked so well is they just have a

compression effect. It’s just a much more intense feeling. It’s like a stronger flavour (like hot sauce instead of ketchup). I think that’s what audiences are really looking for. What are a few sleeper films showing at TIFF this year that people should check out? There's a film called Lady Macbeth that premiered on our platform competition section that I think is terrific. It has the kind of intensity that I’m looking for when I’m watching movies. It’s really well made and well written and has a great young actress, Florence Pugh, at the heart of it, as well. It actually just got sold to an American distributor so it will be out in North America. I think when people discover it they’ll be thrilled to see a new voice. A United Kingdom is one that played very well; it’s a romance in the old fashioned tradition and also has something to say about how we cross boundaries with inter-racial marriage and the conflict that causes. The way people consume entertainment, and specifically film, has dramatically changed with streaming and companies such as HBO and Netflix creating their own original content. What do you think is the next big trend in entertainment? It’s hard to say, I don’t think anybody would have predicted the rise of streaming media and how dependent we all are on our phones. In terms of technology, I have no idea what’s coming next, but what I can say is there will always be a desire to share experiences, so the fact that people come to our festival in such large numbers (upwards of 500,000!) will continue. People want to have unique experiences that they want to share with other people in different ways, so I see that as a big part of the future. TIFF 2016 wrapped up a couple of weeks ago, and continues to cement itself as the top (creative, not just film) festival around. With over 397 films in total from the 7 plus hour Czech Republic mystery miniseries film Wasteland to the Toronto-based documentary, The Stairs, few festivals in general come close to matching both the breadth and quality of art showcased during the event. This wouldn’t be possible without the man regulating the festival, Cameron Bailey. As streaming continues to gain steam among mainstream film companies, and viewers' attention spans continue to shrink, one constant you can expect from TIFF is a steady flow of quality content, no matter your taste.

MICHAEL BROWNSTEIN Bridging a legacy IN 1940, BENJAMIN BROWNSTEIN BEGAN A LEGACY THAT HAS SURVIVED FOUR GENERATIONS. DEEP WITHIN THE SHOE DEPARTMENT OF BROWNS DEPARTMENT STORE, HIS SON, MORTON, MET A MAN WHO INSPIRED HIM TO LAUNCH BROWNS SHOES: A LUXURY SHOE DESTINATION THAT WOULD CHANGE THE LANDSCAPE OF THE CANADIAN SHOE BUSINESS. DRESS TO KILL HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING MORTON'S SON, MICHAEL,THE CURRENT BROWNSTEIN AT THE HEAD OF THE COMPANY, AND CHAT WITH HIM ABOUT WHAT IT’S REALLY LIKE TO BE IN HIS SHOES. By Belinda Anidjar Literally. The first thing I noticed when the president of Browns, Michael Brownstein, descended the stateof-the-art stairs inside Browns’ spectacular twoyear-old building was his pair of textured black reptile dress shoes. “They’re Cesare Paciotti,” he tells me, proudly. “I think they’re the most stylish, fashionable, best quality shoes for men in the world.”

Photography César Ochoa Grooming Ewa Bilinska

With a Bachelor of Commerce from McGill University, it may come as a surprise that Brownstein spent three years as a professional skier in Europe before diving into the family business. At the time, he would meet his father in Milan and Bologna during the shoe fairs and spend three or four days learning the tricks of the trade. In addition to passing on his business knowledge, Morton Brownstein left his son with a key philosophy. “The thing I learned most about my father was to treat people with respect,” he tells me. “Everybody loved my father. He built our business on personal relationships.”

P.49


Business

That philosophy may have been the secret ingredient to Browns’ unremitting success. In addition to Brownstein’s children (who are the fourth generation of his family to join the business), his employees, some of whom have been there for 20-30 years, are like family to him. He tells me, “When I go to the stores and see a young kid on the floor, and a salesman that I’ve known for 25 years comes up to me and says, 'Michael, I want you to meet my son,' that’s nice. That means that the people that worked with us are happy, they respect us, and they want their children to work with us. That’s a great compliment.” Another family value at the core of their business model is the importance of charity. Every year, 10% of Browns’ profits go to organizations throughout Canada. In 2015, for their 75 year silver anniversary, the company developed silver bags for $5 each, with all proceeds going to children’s hospitals across Canada. “We’ve sold over 100,000 bags. It’s over half a million dollars, and we’re going to raise probably a million dollars once we’re through with it,” explains Brownstein, with indisputable confidence. With three or four stores opening across the country every year, Browns continues to expand and its legacy is destined to surpass everyone’s expectations, if it hasn’t already. Browns is Canada’s destination for the best high fashion shoes, such as Giuseppe Zanotti, DSquared, and Rick Owens. How do you choose which brands to acquire? Michael Brownstein: [The buyers] are on the Internet all the time. They’re on Facebook and Twitter, reading magazines, watching the right shows on television. A big factor is celebrities. We have these Rihanna shoes that just came out. We had lineups in our store to buy our shoes because it was Rihanna. Years ago, it was mostly dictated by European designers like Bruno Magli and Ferragamo. I would say in the last five-six years, it’s really been dominated by celebrities.

"THE THING I LEARNED MOST ABOUT MY FATHER WAS TO TREAT PEOPLE WITH RESPECT."

Aside from the major brands, your private labels (Browns, Browns Couture, B2, Mimosa, Intensi, Luca Del Forte, and The Wishbone Collection) have also been highly successful. Your B2 line even has its own home in shopping centres across the country. What inspired you to open the B2 stores 15 years ago? Our Browns stores tended to be a little bit on the sophisticated side. They were a little intimidating for younger people to visit. So we said, maybe it’s a good idea to open a separate store with a much more relaxed, younger feeling, with music, younger people and a younger décor. In Carrefour Laval, there’s a big Browns store and we opened a B2 on the other side of the mall. A centre like CL is huge, so the average customer that goes to CL should come to Browns, but it’s very rare that he’s going to walk around the whole centre. As the centres expanded, we really tried to do that. To have both. How do you ensure the success of your brick & mortar stores in light of the e-commerce boom? We’re into this program called omni-channel. Omni-channel means the process of making it as easy as possible for the customer to buy from your company. If we have anything that he wants, anywhere at Browns in any city, we have to be able to give it to him as fast as possible. We’re going to probably have kiosks for customers with touchscreens so the salesman can show him on the Internet. That’s the new way of selling in the store, but at least he tries it on. Let’s talk shoes. What are the three shoes every man should own? First, a pair of cool sneakers. Then they should have a cool pair of dress shoes, something a little dressier to wear with a suit. They should probably have some kind of bootie, either a lace-up boot or a Wellington to wear with jeans, especially in the wintertime.

P.50

DTK MEN | THE CINEMA ISSUE


Business

As our resident shoe expert, can you predict any upcoming shoe trends? Men’s is getting very “athleisure.” We’re selling a lot of Puma and Adidas. We also sell a lot of Luca Del Forte and Intensi that have an athletic feel, with big rubber soles, a lot of technical materials like neoprene, elastic, and rubber bands. That’s the big trend right now. Are there major differences when it comes to selling to men versus selling to women? Men take bigger sizes. That’s the difference! [laughs] Our men’s business has exploded in the last few years because men are becoming way more fashion conscious than they were 10 or 15 years ago. Kids nowadays are into sneakers or fashion shoes much more than they were. Even lawyers and accountants, in general, conservative people, are starting to wear rubber soles to work. It’s not so stiff anymore. It’s much more cool [shoes], with different materials or textures. Many Canadian retailers are suffering, faced with the tsunami of competition from abroad, but Browns continues to thrive. What’s your secret? Our kind of customer is not so much the customer that buys a pair of shoes because the ones he has are no good anymore. He’s buying them because it’s making him feel good and he wants to look good. It’s an experience to wear these new shoes and he’s happy to do it. We call

it “shoppertainment.” The customer is shopping and wants to be entertained at the same time, so we make sure that the stores are entertaining, and that’s by the atmosphere of the stores, by the service, and by the selection. I was in the store with the vice president of Dolce & Gabbana two years ago, on St. Catherine Street. There are people trying on D&G shoes and [somebody else] is trying on Converse right beside them. He says to me, “We really don’t have these kinds of stores in Europe. In Europe, it’s all small boutiques that specialize in one kind.” So I said to him, “Fabrizio, you’re a fashion guy? You wear D&G shoes when you work? Do you have a pair of Converse?” He says to me, “Yeah.” It’s the same customer. Why couldn’t I sell the same customer D&G and Converse? They’re both cool, happening shoes. I said to him, “What do you like best about the store?” He looks around and he says to me, “You know what I like best? The energy.” And it’s true. When you go into St. Catherine, there’s an energy. It’s impressive. It’s fun. It’s happening. And finally, if we opened your closet, what shoes would we find? A lot [laughs]. Not as much as my wife’s, that’s for sure! In my closet, you’d find lots of [Cesare] Paciotti shoes. You’d find Adidas and Puma. You’d find our own private Luca Del Forte, Intensi. Those are mostly the shoes I wear.

Inside the mind of bodybuilder

DAMIANO GRUPPUSO EVEN DAMIANO GRUPPUSO STRUGGLED TO FIND A ROUTINE THAT WORKED FOR HIM. WHEN HIS JOURNEY TO A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE BEGAN THREE YEARS AGO, FINDING CONSISTENCY IN PROPER NUTRITION AND AT THE GYM WAS CHALLENGING. BUT UNLIKE MANY PEOPLE WHO DABBLE IN AND OUT OF THE FITNESS WORLD, HE NEVER GAVE UP.

By Braydon Holmyard

Since then, the bodybuilder from Markham, Ontario has transformed his body into a canvas worthy of a spot at the IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness) nationals next May 6th in Laval, Quebec. What used to take endless doses of self-motivation has become something he craves. “It’s almost like when you wake up every morning and you brush your teeth. It’s something you don’t even think about, you just do it,” Gruppuso said. “Or somebody who wakes up and has a coffee ev-

ery morning. Going to the gym is like that for me now. I don’t think about it; it just happens fluently.” Through trial and error, endless hours of research, and his overwhelming personal accomplishments, Gruppuso has gained the knowledge that gymaddicts and newcomers alike can learn from. Take a look inside the mind of one of Canada’s most promising young bodybuilders as he goes through a few of the tips, tricks and exercises that helped change his body.


Fitness

“WHEN I STARTED, I JUST WANTED TO GET IN SHAPE AND CHANGE MY BODY. IT WAS A CHORE. IT WAS HARD. I DIDN’T THINK IT WAS GOING TO BE LONG-TERM FOR ME.” CHEST

I’ll start off on a barbell bench. I don’t go very long; I’ll just feel the weight out. Usually go 10 to 12 reps per set. Sometimes I use resistance bands because it gives a different feel and your chest is always under contraction. Then I’ll go to a compound, like a flat dumbbell press or an incline press. Again, I’m not going too heavy, probably doing roughly four to five sets and 10 to 12 reps. I’ll finish with a fly – either a cable fly or a dumbbell fly. It’s hard to explain to people, but sometimes I don’t even count my reps. For example, somebody could do 15 reps, but if they still have five reps in the tank, you should probably do those five reps, because that’s when you start growing. When you go beyond that failure, beyond that burn, that’s when your body starts to grow. When your body is in overdrive, that is when it starts to change. You want to keep track of how your muscles felt and how they contracted.

LEGS

The sweet spot for training my legs was always two days a week. I don’t squat as often as I used to, but I’ll still do leg curls and lunges. I felt like lunges helped with my legs a lot. Many people complain about how sore they get, and it’s because they are only training their legs once a week. When I train mine twice, I’m way less sore. It’s so strange how it sounds, but when I am doing them twice a week my body gets used to it and I recover faster.

“MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW SORE THEY GET, AND IT’S BECAUSE THEY ARE ONLY TRAINING THEIR LEGS ONCE A WEEK.”

Legs are so important to train. It all starts from your legs up. Your legs are your biggest muscles. Especially for men, in terms of testosterone, if you don’t train your legs, your testosterone levels are not going to be where they should be. When you’re training legs, you are actually producing natural testosterone and it makes you stronger.

ARMS

I found what worked for me is I would do arms on the same day. I’ll do an exercise for biceps, then I’ll do triceps right away. I would superset them both and it has made my arms grow over time. For many people, their bicep will overpower their tricep, but you need to remember your tricep is about two-thirds of your arm. A lot of people will be pounding bicep curls, but they don’t really see their arm grow. That’s the thing, you have to hit your tricep a lot more. I do the typical standing dumbbell curls. Not too much, just 20 or 25 pounds, but I would do 15 to 20 reps each arm. Or at least I would try even if I couldn’t do it with that I would put the weight down and try to at least get those reps in. I would also do hammer curls, which targets your forearm, and reverse curls with the small barbells. After that I would do a cable curl and superset it with a tricep pulldown and go back and forth. You can really create plenty of blood flow if you’re doing it properly. It’s getting that blood flow into your muscles that makes them grow.

BACK

For me, it all changed when I started doing my pull-ups. I wasn’t very good at them. I could only do three or four, but I started doing the assisted ones with the machine. A lot of people may think the machine ones are embarrassing, but once I started with that, my back started getting stronger because I was doing it properly and it was actually targeting my muscles.

NUTRITION

The nutrition aspect is more important than the lifting itself. You get results by eating healthy and feeling good and that’s when your body starts to change. One thing I recommend to people, even if you’re not working out, is taking your multivitamins and your fish oils. It’s about longevity and feeling good. When I started taking all my proper vitamins, I felt a difference in my energy

Then I started doing the actual pull-ups themselves and I was able to do more and more. I would also do variations of lat pulldowns, dropping the weight in order to do as many as I could until I failed. The third one I’d finish with is a cable row or a dumbbell row. I really focus on slow tempo. Slow contractions and slow motion, that’s the most important part. Obviously the

weights have got to be right for you, but it’s funny because I can make a 15- or 20-pound dumbbell feel like a 50-pound dumbbell.

And my last meal will be the same thing I had for breakfast.

James Goldstein’s Prodigal

DREAM HOME

PICTURE THE MOST EXTRAVAGANT HOUSE YOU CAN AND I’M SURE IT INCLUDES AN EXPANSIVE SWIMMING POOL, MODERN GLASS WALLS, PERHAPS A KOI POND IN YOUR LIVING ROOM JUST FOR KICKS, AND A NIGHTCLUB, WHICH OF COURSE, YOU NAME AFTER YOURSELF. LUCKY FOR YOU,WE’VE FOUND IT. By Belinda Anidjar Bodysuit GRETA CONSTANTINE. Stockings and Corset HOUSE OF ETIQUETTE. Bodystocking TRASHY LINGERIE.

Hosting roughly 200 photo shoots and parties every year, the SheatsGoldstein House in Beverly Hills, also known as the James Goldstein House, is almost too unreal to exist. Originally designed in 1961 by California architect John Lautner, the house was purchased by NBA superfan, fashion enthusiast, and real-estate developer James F. Goldstein, in 1972. Though originally designed for artist Helen Sheats and her professor husband Paul, the house was completely transformed since its original conception. A few renovations later, it now includes a rooftop tennis court, a tropical garden, and a nightclub called Club James, naturally. Step inside the master bedroom and behold a glass sink without a faucet that shoots out water with the wave of a hand. If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the TV descending through the wooden ceiling. Yes, this is real life.

and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. Home to a fashion aficionado often spotted in tight leather pants, bedazzled jackets, cowboy hats, and python prints by Balmain, Saint Laurent, or Jean Paul Gaultier, Goldstein’s house has been featured in shoots for Vogue, Vanity Fair and Dior. In fact, the homeowner even launched his own clothing line, James Goldstein Couture, in 2013. Though he describes his home as “minimalist,” consisting of concrete, glass, and wooden furniture, the James Goldstein house happens to be the most lavish home in LA and is worth a striking $40 million. Currently in his 70s, Goldstein recently decided to donate his home to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Aside from the house itself, a series of major art pieces by artists like Ed Ruscha and Kenny Scharf, a James Turrell skyspace, and his entire designer wardrobe make this one of the most exciting donations the LACMA has ever received. While he continues to reside there, his home will be open to the public for visits by appointment, but in the meantime, he continues to host large parties because in a home like that, how could the party ever stop? Next on the agenda, Goldstein has plans to spruce it up just a little bit more with a theatre and a guesthouse. It may seem over-the-top, but frankly, what the hell.

KALEO THE ICELANDIC BAND WITH BLUESY ROOTS

THEY SOUND LIKE THE VEILS HAD A MAGICAL MUSIC BABY WITH KINGS OF LEON (BEFORE THEY SHAVED THEIR BEARDS).THEIR TRACKS ARE SO FULL OF THAT DIRTY BLUESY ROCK -THINK CLAPTON WITH CREAM OR THE SHEEPDOGS - THAT YOU COULD ALMOST BELIEVE THEY WERE BORN AND RAISED SOMEWHERE LIKE NASHVILLE. BUT KALEO IS A PURE ICELANDIC PRODUCTTHAT MADE ITTHEIR MISSION TO CAPTIVATEYOUR BODY AND EARS WITH THEIR GRITTY SOUND. By Marie-Ève Venne During their show at Osheaga this summer, you could hear the crowd singing every word of their hit single “All the Pretty Girls,” before totally losing it and moving their hips like all the lust from hell just unleashed on earth to their more bluesy and rock and roll songs like "No Good" and "Way Down We Go". The lead singer and guitarist, Jökull Júlíusson (JJ for his friends and people clearly not speaking Icelandic), has the raspy of a real bluesman, while his bandmates Davíð Antonsson (percussion and vocals), Daníel Ægir Kristjánsson (bass guitar) and Rubin Pollock (guitar and vocals) are playing rhythms that Buddy Holly himself would have approved. While sitting down with JJ after their performance at the festival, I try to discover how a band with members born on a Nordic island can sound as, if not more, rock than any American artist. “We all grew up listening to old music from the 60s and 70s, mostly southern singers, and that is how we learned to play guitar with this particular sound. My dad had an impressive collection of classic rock vinyls and I couldn’t get enough. We began learning English in school when we were still young and while watching some American TV shows on cable.” The band gained success pretty quickly in their native country with their single "Vor í Vaglaskógi" before deciding to risk everything and make the big move to the United States - Austin, Texas to be precise. “It was the next logical move, especially regarding the kind of music we are making. Austin seemed like a perfect spot and I wanted to be in the south 'cause most of the music I’m listening to is from there. Also, our management company is based there.”

They didn’t have to wait very long to get a reaction from the American public. Their album A/B, released last June, debuted at number 15 on the Billboard Top 200, and their music has since been heard in many popular TV shows, such as Empire and Vinyl. I address the clear change of pace halfway through the album, since it goes from raw, strong rock melodies to slowed down and more folky songs. I ask him if this particular order is something he and the members of the group gave a lot of thought to. “The whole concept of the album was based on the idea of a vinyl record. You have the first part that is like the A side, with a strong rock and roll sound and some blues accents, while the other part is what could be the B side, which is more about the lyrics and soft melodies.” Their most popular song from the album, to this day, is definitely “All The Pretty Girls.” With its mix of country-style guitars and strings, it sounds just like the perfect ballad you want to slow-dance to with someone special. So far, the video has over 6,000,000 views on YouTube alone. Before ending the conversation, I asked him what the band does on tour to wind down a little, when they are not playing and breathing music. “We actually don’t have a lot of free time on our hands. When we are not playing for the public, we are working on new songs or practicing,” he says with the smile of someone doing exactly what he likes for a living. If you want to catch them live, they will return to Canada in March 2017. Go to officialkaleo.com for more details.

His appetite and passion for capturing an image was contagious, and this opened lots of doors for him. In no time, he had met everyone in town and had assembled a team of the best talent and was ready to shoot. He already had a great portfolio. I remember a series in particular featuring a man with a prosthetic metal arm and his daughter, Mikael’s girlfriend at the time. Mikael, you like trash culture. What speaks to you in this esthetic; what do you like about it? It relates to my life at all points. Works that have elements of trash culture often end up being heralded for taking risks, pushing boundaries. And I was willing to take those risks and I’ve never stopped pushing limits. What can you tell us about your stay in Montreal? What was particular about your work during this time? I was arriving from France where I

had been a portrait photographer for years, and I learned about fashion in Montreal. Having worked with people like Olivier Miotto, for example, still motivates me to this day. I was shooting almost every day on film sets—thousands of rolls during those three years—but I lost all of them while leaving for New York. All my archives were ruined when my storage basement was flooded. Starting all over was difficult, after losing all the great work I had created with my favourite collaborators. As far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to capture my imaginary life through my lens and with my team.

How important was your work during your NYC days? New York has given me the opportunity to meet and work with great talents, like Doutzen Kroes. When she first arrived in New York, I was one of the first to shoot her book for her, and she was still underage at the time. I don’t remember all the models I’ve worked with, but I do recall Doutzen and I were arrested by the police for trespassing on private property. We were supposed to go to court together but the city of New York simply threw out our case a month before

You've made a name for yourself playing a lot of creative roles, were you always a creative person? It probably got me into a lot of trouble growing up. There were some pretty out there school projects that certainly didn’t help me fit in. I was also an athlete, but to me that was also a way to channel creativity. Are there any parallels you can take from your career as an athlete that you use in acting? I would say the main difference is that typically in athletics you have a coach there to yell at you. As an actor, all of the research and time and dedication and creation is fully dependent on you (and coffee). I guess the biggest parallel is that it comes down to the amount of discomfort you are willing to experience in the gym, or in those moments where you are struggling to merge with a character. Not to say I don’t enjoy the research aspect of things, but the fun part is typically the actual filming or performance, and in sports it's the competition. You just mentioned that the fun part is typically filming or performance. What steps do you take to mentally prepare for a role, and does that differ considerably based on what the role is? It's incredibly subjective what preparation is required. Sometimes it's physical, sensorial, other times it's mental. What’s the toughest role you've had to prepare for, and can you talk a bit about the different types of prep that went into it? I don't know if I can really categorize one role as the toughest, but I would say going to Broadway as Conrad Birdie in Bye Bye Birdie was definitely a challenge

"I LOVE THE CHALLENGE OF PLAYING WITH ACCENTS AND REALLY ENJOY LANGUAGES, SO IT’S IDEAL WHEN PROJECTS INVOLVE TRAVELING." because I had never done stage before, outside of an acting class. I worked with an incredible coach, Larry Moss. The level of improvisation and detail and history he inspired was thrilling. I was always trying to make the performance better and he would give me notes constantly. The experience never got stale. The audience always changed and so did the performance. I remember the night Ben Brantley was in the audience reviewing for the New York Times, I wiped out on stage in the middle of the number. That's the beauty of theatre; the preparation is making a mental commitment to yourself to just keep going. There is no one who is going to yell "cut," and that's a great thing. Would you do theatre again? I would love to do a Broadway play. That's part of why I moved back to NYC. Though I haven’t been on stage since moving back, I was able to do a film this year based on a play called Hello Again, which originally opened at the Lincoln Center. The role was that of a soldier struggling with

Anderson, Ang Lee, Matt Damon, Baz Luhrmann, Derek Cinefrance, Bernardo Bertolucci, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Aaron Sorkin, Joe Mantello, Alex Timbers, Ramin Bahrani, Alfonso Cuarón. You've already worked with a lot of household names (Lindsay Lohan, Vin Diesel, etc.). Any memorable stories you can share? The most memorable ones tend to be the most incriminating. I've read that your biggest fantasy as an actor is to be taken out of your comfort zone. What's next in terms of getting yourself out of your comfort zone? Well, I'm going to play a character on a Shonda Rhimes show, The Catch. It takes a lot to intimidate me, but that woman is a genius! So there's some nerves involved. I'm also about to work on a series for Netflix called Dear White People… It has the potential to be controversial, so I guess that sort of makes me nervous on a political level. There is a fine line, as an actor, between people knowing you’re acting and thinking that you are your character. After the releasing of my season on Awkward for MTV, I had people send me a bit of hate, thinking that I was a guy who steals girls and does drugs. So I guess the vain part of myself thinks that I need to control what people think of me, but then there is another part of me that is almost encouraged by that response in people; that they believe my performance enough to take it so seriously. In addition to that, I love exploring Europe, as I am a citizen and grew up at-

Anything else you can share about that right now? There is a lot of grey, and it showcases some very different points of view, youth and also conversations that don't seem to ever stop. You're signed with IMG models, and you’ve been the face of Versace. Is fashion an area you'd consider exploring more? It's been fun venturing into a world with a different process than film. Whatever you create on set, be it photographs or videos, comes out a lot faster and everything is a little bit more dramatic. I've learned things about myself on a shoot that I didn't know otherwise. I wouldn't consider myself a model. I think vanity is a very dangerous thing for an actor, so it's something that I would keep doing as long as it doesn't mess with my ability to make a fool of myself.

THEA feature END OF AN ERA story on movie producer Jeremy Bolt

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END. ON JANUARY 27,THE PREMIERE OF RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER WILL MARK THE CONCLUSION OF A FRANCHISE KNOWN FOR ITS INTENSELY GRIPPING STORYLINES, DRAMATIC SPECIAL EFFECTS, AND ITS ROLE IN CREATING THE 'UNDEAD' PHENOMENON. By Braydon Holmyard One would think that a hard-working producer living in Hollywood would celebrate this moment with a night on the town, but that was not the case for this movie mastermind. Jeremy Bolt thought about how he was going to spend his special night, and it did not include a gourmet dish. “To be honest, I’ll probably just have a couple of black coffees and a cigar. I doubt I’ll be able to eat anything, because I’ll be nervous.” The business brains behind the operation, Bolt is an independent producer who has created six films in the series over a 15-year span. Bolt hails from London, England, but was born in the capital of Uganda, Kampala. It borders Lake Victoria, one of the African Great Lakes. His career as an international producer took its first steps when he collaborated with his director, Paul Anderson, in 1992 – soon after, they would found Impact Pictures. Their idea was simple, and it worked. “I said, ‘I've never produced and I’d like to produce.’ And he said, ‘I’ve never directed

P.92

and I want to direct,’” Bolt explains. “Basically, we shook hands and two years later, we made our first film.” It was the beginning of what has turned out to be a long and successful working relationship with Anderson. In reflection, Bolt remembers the reason they got together in the first place, and it was in large part because of his love for the all-time classic action film Die Hard. Bolt and Anderson met roughly 18 months prior to the launch of their production company, Impact Pictures. On the recommendation of a mutual friend, the two creative minds were introduced because of their love for Die Hard and general fascination with the film industry. “We met at a coffee shop in London and we got on and had similar tastes in film,” Bolt said. “At that point, the big movies for us were Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Jacob’s Ladder (1990), The French Connection (1971), Apocalypse Now (1979). These are the films we talked about, along with Die Hard (1988), of course.”

"MAKE SURE YOU’VE DONE EVERYTHING YOU POSSIBLY COULD DO, TO MAKE SURE IT IS THE BEST FILM IT COULD BE. AND THEN YOU JUST HAVE TO LEAVE IT TO FATE." At the time, Impact Pictures was a new business idea led by a couple of unproven movie buffs with gigantic aspirations. The talented duo’s success and longevity in the industry is now paying dividends.


Cinema “In the old days, when we were beginning a film, Paul and I would drink a bottle of scotch or have endless cups of coffee and get inspired. Then he would write a script and I would give him notes,” Bolt recalls. “But now, 25 years on, we go for a walk along the beach in Malibu with our dogs and come up with stories and ideas.” Bolt’s career may be headlined by Resident Evil, but it does not end there. In 1994, he released an action film featuring Jude Law, called Shopping. In 2008, he poured his love for car racing into his production of Death Race, a four-movie franchise with the latest edition scheduled for 2017. His job has taken him all over the world, with Canada’s major cities being some of his favourite places to shoot. “We shot Resident Evil 2 in Toronto during the SARS crisis and the city was tremendously supportive,” Bolt said. “We actually managed to close the Bloor Bridge and we shot just in front of City Hall, which was remarkable. We are very fond of Toronto, we love the city and the people have been so tremendously supportive of Resident Evil.” Bolt also has fond memories of shooting Death Race in Montreal back in 2007, where he took over an old train factory and turned it into a racing circuit. This time around, the final chapter of Resident Evil brought him to Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa. They turned out to be two beautiful cities deserving of the final film. Even the challenges during the shoot ended up being uplifting. “We were shooting in one location where there were baboons,” Bolt says, remembering the moment fondly. “At the end of the take, where you’re meant to believe you are in America, suddenly there’s a family of baboons. I just found that amusing, and these were some very friendly baboons. We had to be careful about things like that.” One of the challenges Bolt has to handle on the business side of production is keeping the fans engaged at the end of a lengthy franchise. Sustaining and maintaining the audience and making them feel they are going to see something new in every movie is always his goal. Fortunately for Bolt, he has the support he needs to successfully distribute the content

he produces. For 15 years, Constantin Film, a German production and distribution company, has owned the rights to the series. He describes them as a filmmaker-friendly partner that supports his creativity. Sony Pictures has also been an advocate of Resident Evil and a major distribution partner. The producer describes himself as “sixty percent creative and forty percent business.” The way the movie has turned out is as good as he would have hoped, if not better. When post-production comes to an end and it is time to sit back and enjoy the show, Bolt believes this movie will speak for itself. “I’m excited that it’s ending. I’m sad, but I’m very proud. We put so much effort into this film, because it is the last one. I’m just pleased that it's paid off. I can honestly say this is the best film of the franchise.” He describes his newest movie as being edgier and grittier than the previous two, with more plot twists and turns. There were more

DTK MEN | THE CINEMA ISSUE

scenes shot on location rather than in studio to make it feel even more real. He knows he has done everything he can to end on a high note. More importantly, he has lived up to the high expectations he sets out for himself every time he creates a movie. “I have one belief which I try to honour on every film, which is: make sure you’ve done everything you possibly could do to make sure it is the best film it could be. And then you just have to leave it to fate.” It will be an emotional time for Bolt when his most successful franchise – a series that has generated more than one billion dollars in revenue – comes to an end. At the end of January, one chapter ends, but another begins. He thinks about what he hopes Resident Evil fans will feel after the very last scene of the series. In his usual full voice, he can hardly get the words out before he chuckles. “I hope they want more.”

TO KILL

LOOKING FOR THE NEXT JAMES BOND There are few characters as iconic (and lucrative for the studios) as James Bond. Suave, seductive, sadistic, the spy has, for generations now, been a staple of the big screen. We’ve gone from classic Connery, a Lazenby sidestep, Moore’s mixed results, Dalton’s underappreciated dash, Brosnan’s bigger-than-life bravado, right up to Craig’s craggy contemporary turn. And, yes, we’re ignoring David Niven, Woody Allen, etc. from the original Casino Royale, though that film does give us the freedom to think outside the box when it comes to picking our new protagonist. Craig has inhabited the character so well that despite a clear denouement at the conclusion of Spectre, the rumours are out that producers are still trying to woo him back with $150 million (a figure that Vanity Fair has called “baloney”). So who will take up the mantle? Let’s look at a couple of obvious suspects and a few that may surprise.

Fans of Downton Abbey will know him as Matthew Crawley and may be surprised to see him on this list, but you only have to watch the fantastic genre film The Guest to see an entirely different side of this performer. Physically, he’s titanic in that role of a returning soldier visiting the family of a lost colleague, only to be keeping a secret from those that let him in. He pulls off the American accent well, showing his ability to blend in like any good spy should, but really it’s his turn from sweetness to psychotic malice that makes him perfect for a new, harder-edged Bond. Add on a fine turn as a bumbling boyfriend in the forthcoming Colossal or his real breakthrough as the titular creature in the live action Beauty and the Beast and we’ve got a winner in this exciting talent worthy of consideration.

Riz Ahmed

Not enough of you saw Nightcrawler or Four Lions, and if more of you did, this name wouldn’t come as such a surprise. Yet when Ahmed makes his mark as Bodhi Rook this season in Star Wars: Rogue One, many more will know his face. He’s also been celebrated for his turn as Naz Kahn in HBO’s The Night Of, showing off his versatility and range. As a rapper, Ahmed has the swagger to be Bond, and as a Brit of Pakistani descent he brings an entirely welcome palate to the character, given current geopolitical turmoil, making the casting choice exciting not only for its originality but for the compelling, complex directions that the narrative can take with the likes of him behind the wheel of the Aston Martin.

MOVIE THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST

Michael Fassbender or Tom Hiddleston These two stalwarts are both fantastic actors and very much fit the mould of what we’ve come to expect from Bond. They’re equally adept at smaller, art-house fair and big franchise films, meaning they’re unlikely to be overwhelmed by THE CINEMA SOCIETY SCREENING OF THE COUNSELOR

Jack O’Connell

If they’re going to go young and tough, why not look at an actor who brings more than a bit of grunge to the role. Bond was always meant to be an attack dog in a tuxedo, wearing the trappings of civilization to conceal a boiling, alcohol-fueled rage. Watch five minutes of Jack O’Connell in Starred Up and see one of the most visceral, frightening takes on prison dramas ever made. Check him out as a soldier in ’71 and you’ll find a contemplative yet effective soldier patrolling in Northern Ireland. He’s an electric performer whom you’d believe when he single-handedly takes down a retinue of baddies all by his lonesome.

Tom Hardy If we’re going to stay tough but a little bit older, why not look to one of the most versatile, exciting and rough-and-tumble Brit actors in a generation. From his breakout in Bronson to the wonder that is Mad Max: Fury Road, he’s shown his mettle. But take a look at the likes of Locke for another side of the man, or Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy for one of the best espionage films ever made. He’s an actor unafraid to show himself as vulnerable on screen, and with that tough man look and suave demeanour we may have a terrific follow-up to Craig’s take on the role.

Emily Blunt

Let’s be blunt, shall we? We’ve had decades with the boys having all the fun, why not really mix it up and throw this magnetic performer into the role instead? Just as Q and M stay the same while different personnel cycle into the position (including, of course, a magnificent portrayal by Dame Judy Dench), so too could the spy designated as “James Bond” and “007” be any gender we want. Jamie Bond could easily be played by Blunt, a woman who kicked Tom Cruise’s ass in Edge of Tomorrow, who helped make Sicario a modern masterpiece and who still managed to be more bitchy than Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. A fierce actor with a brain to match, she’d be both magnetic and modern, a truly new step to showcase just how plastic and malleable this franchise could be with a bit of imagination.

MOVIE EDGE OF TOMORROW

Idris Elba

Many have spoken, and Idris Elba seems to be the most exciting change in Bond lore since it began. The man’s got the chops – just watch a few seasons of The Wire to see his command, or his fantastic role as a warlord in Beasts of No Nation, work for which, because of Academy rules, he was denied a well-deserved Oscar nod. His show Luther shows he can play tortured, and simply look at a slew of red carpet shots to see that the man pulls off a tuxedo better than almost anyone. He’d be the oldest cast Bond, which may be a mark against, but maybe it can be done as a multi-generational thing, throwing someone like John Boyega in for training flashbacks, letting us see how Bond became Bond.

ONE OF THE QUALITIES THAT DEFINES THE JAMES BOND CHARACTER IS THE IDEAL OF HIS BEING A LONE WOLF, FREE FROM THE DISTRACTIONS OF EVERYDAY RELATIONSHIPS WHILE HE TRAVELS THE WORLD ON HIS GIVEN MISSIONS. YET THROUGHOUT THE HALF-CENTURY SPAN OF THE BOND FILMS,THERE ARE A FEW WOMEN IN HIS LIFE THAT HAVE TRULY STOOD OUT.

Ursula Andress DR. NO

It all starts with one of the most iconic shots in film, as Ursula Andress walks bikini-clad out of the Caribbean Sea. It’s one of the most impressive emergences from water caught on film, perhaps only trumped by a murderous Martin Sheen rising from the river in Apocalypse Now, or the “We’re going to need a bigger boat” scene in Jaws.

less deadly in shaking up a sleeping Bond. Her song is siren-like, and for the rest of the film he’s smitten by the vision — the first of many beauties that waylay him from strategic simplicity. Halle Berry in Die Another Day, and even Daniel Craig himself in Casino Royale, mirrored the shot, but the first will always be the best, and Honey, forever the sweetest.

Carole Bouquet

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Eva Green CASINO ROYALE The Craig years have resulted in a continuity of sorts that was missing in earlier iterations. It means, for example, that the effect of Eva Green’s Vesper Lynd coming into his life would shape his life through Quantum of Solace and even in part up to Skyfall and Spectre. Yet as a complex, standalone character, there are few as well-drawn as Lynd. Capably played by a tenaciously smart and preposterously attractive Green, she’s a new classic in the mould of the greats.

Another Moore-era companion, this famed French actress was one of the few of Bond’s women to be in the driver’s seat – literally! Weaving her way through in a yellow Citroën 2CV like a demonic wheeled fruit, the star of classics such as Buñuel’s surreal That Obscure Object of Desire adds her own exotic beauty and feisty spirit to the canon of famous femmes in this spy franchise.

Jane Seymour

LIVE AND LET DIE On the opposite end of the age spectrum, we have a 20-ish Jane Seymour as Solitaire, as on-the-nose as any name, titillating a then-46year-old Roger Moore. The film is mostly remembered for its Macca theme song and Yaphet Kotto’s suave Dr. Kananga (aka Mr. Big), but before she was made an Order of the British Empire, Seymour had her international start here, pulling at James Bond's heartstrings.

Honor Blackman GOLDFINGER Of all the euphemistic nomenclature used by Ian Fleming, “Pussy Galore” may be tops, yet Honor Blackman’s portrayal is no gentle kitten. One of the few age-appropriate foils for Bond, she’d already cut her (sharp) teeth as Mrs. Gale on The Avengers before standing toe-to-paw with Sean Connery. Goldfinger is arguably the best of classic Bond, due in large part to the delightful repartee between Bond and Pussy, a theme that would be repeated many more times to come, but rarely replicated with such vigour.

The year of

SARAH GADON THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO BECOME VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE NAME SARAH GADON. IN ADDITION TO PROMOTING HER NEWLY RELEASED FILM, INDIGNATION, EARLIER THIS SUMMER, AND THE IMMINENT RELEASE OF THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX, OUT THIS SEPTEMBER,THE CANADIAN ACTRESS HAS ALSO BEEN BUSY WORKING ON TWO OTHER PROJECTS – WITH SOME OF CANADA’S MOST RECOGNIZED AND ACCLAIMED FILMMAKERS AND PRODUCERS. IN AYEAR WHERE CANADA MADE ITS WAY INTO THE INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT, SOMETHING TELLS US GADON IS ON THE VERGE OF WORLDWIDE SUPERSTARDOM,TOO. By Angelic Vendette As I walk into the room to meet with Gadon just as she wraps up shooting our Fall editorial, I am greeted with a hug and a smile, as though a full day of modelling and playing dress-up for us is a breeze - something any model, let alone actress, would find exhausting. The 29-year-old actress is as beautiful in person as she is on screen. Without any makeup, and with her hair pulled back into a very tight and heavily hair-sprayed chignon - what I believe to be the residuals of her look on set – she tells me her personal style is effortless, almost excusing her editoriallooking hair. “My style is really simple. I like things that are classic, with a slight twist that is unexpected,” she says, illustrating her point with her Isabel Marant sweater, that looks unassuming until she pulls at the side slit that runs more than half way up her shirt.

“MY STYLE IS REALLY SIMPLE. I LIKE THINGS THAT ARE CLASSIC, WITH A SLIGHT TWIST THAT IS UNEXPECTED.”

Classic with a slight twist of the unexpected something I could just as easily use to describe the talented Gadon herself. The Toronto-born, Toronto-based artist, who began her acting career as a child, is a classically trained performer. Having studied both dancing and acting, Gadon completed her studies at the University of Toronto’s Cinema Studies Institute, which only reinforced the dedication she has to her craft. Gadon has already proven herself to be one of Canada’s most talented young actors, playing in an array of different roles and film genres. Her first role was in the Canadian television hit Nikita, at the age of only 10. She has since appeared

in major projects, from David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis and A Dangerous Method, to major blockbusters like Dracula Untold and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. More recently, she appeared in A Royal Night Out, portraying a young Elizabeth II. This year alone, Gadon plays James Franco’s love interest in the Hulu adaptation of Stephen King’s miniseries 11.22.63, as well as appearing in the American drama Indignation, which was received to critical acclaim earlier this summer. She is also going to appear in the supernatural thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax (scheduled for release on September 2), which is based on Liz Jensen’s best-selling novel of the same name. And as though her schedule wasn’t booked enough already, I caught up with the rising star to talk about her upcoming projects, which she has already begun shooting. “I am about to go back to camera. I am going to Montreal next week to shoot John Donovan!” the actress says eagerly. And understandably so, as The Death and Life of John F. Donovan marks the English-language debut for the filmmaking prodigy Xavier Dolan. “I am so proud of Xavier. I love his films, and I am so happy that I can be a part of his first English film. Xavier is very special, and so I’m excited.” At this point, I can tell that she is as proud of our homegrown talent as we are. I ask her how important it is for her to work with Canadian directors and producers, and seeing how involved she’s been in the past with ACTRA, I am not one bit surprised by her answer, but am humbled by how seriously she takes our industry this side of the border.

Her “I love it. I love working with Canadian directors. They’re the best, they are incredible. We have so many great talents coming out of this country. I am really interested in what people are doing here recently. I feel like Toronto is having a renaissance and Canada is emerging as a very interesting country right now. From a political perspective and sociocultural perspective, as well. So I am very interested in working with my colleagues and my peers here.” She goes on to talk about another upcoming project with Canadian cinema superstar Sarah Polley. “After shooting The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, I am going to do a Netflix 6-part mini-series based on the Margaret Atwood novel Alias Grace … I am also very excited about working on Alias Grace because Sarah Polley is executive producer and writer, and Mary Harron is directing it. They (Polley and Harron) are just two powerhouse women now working in the industry; they are two very intelligent, very talented, well-respected women, and it’s so awesome that they’re from Canada, as well.” The petite actress is refreshingly candid about how excited she is to stay and work here in Canada. I can’t help but want to see even more of her in film, even though she is clearly showing no sign of stopping. Case in point, aside from acting, and taking her first stab at directing, with Reelside, Gadon is also a rock-solid model. At only 5 ft 2, she has been the face of both Armani makeup and, more recently, Jaeger-LeCoultre watches. Jaeger-LeCoultre asked Gadon to participate in a special campaign based in New York last year, where the actress embodied old Hollywood charm à la Grace Kelly, which fittingly enough spoke to her own style. “I gravitate towards classic silhouettes and classic styles because they are tried, tested, and true. I genuinely prefer the pieces in my closet that I can wear time and time again. That’s what I love about JaegerLeCoultre watches.” I can tell she genuinely likes wearing the pieces. “You can wear them

Their pieces can transcend any outfit, and that’s what I love most about a timeless watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre.” The blonde actress unpretentiously continues, “It is great to be part of such a prestigious brand – I just love all their pieces.” The name Gadon is about to explode, and the fact that this seems to be unbeknown to her only reaffirms her celebrity-in-themaking status. I can tell I’m speaking with Canada’s next “it” girl, not to mention Hollywood’s, as she enumerated the various projects that she has already been a part of, and that she is currently embarking on. I close our conversation, as naturally as if two girlfriends were chatting, by asking about how she dresses for the red carpet. Instead of answering, Gadon tells me about how odd she feels being there – almost as though she were subconsciously talking about her new-found stardom: “It is a bizarre experience being on a red carpet. Nothing about it is normal and I feel very surreal, almost like a fish out of water.” She smiles, though, and finishes with: “I’m learning to have fun, and to enjoy it.”

Upon meeting ïto, one is instantly impressed by the designer's vibrant energy; one senses he is constantly bubbling with ideas. For nearly two decades, he has lived intensely, like a man who knows there is not enough time to bring all his ideas to fruition. “I'm always looking to the next project. If I keep doing what I do, it's simply because I'm never completely satisfied with what I've accomplished. It's never 100% perfect. Sometimes, I'll get it to where it's 90% there, at other times 70%. But the reason you stay in the industry is to grow and to improve,”

he explains. “I started out at a very young age and I thought I was the best. But the older I get, the more I realize I simply was not. I began at age 19, and after just one year I already had the kind of career most people take 20 years to achieve. It all happened very quickly for me, and after one year I was already a big name.” Just a glance at his long list of achievements bears this out: The bottle for Guerlain's Idylle fragrance; the transformation of Hotel O in Paris; the Ico chair for Cassina; the One Line lamp for Artemide, which garnered his first Red Dot Design Award in 2005. Then there's the successful Arborescence collection for Christofle, which was inspired by the house's origins. “It's like being an actor,” ïto muses. “You have to get into the role, inhabit the character. Each project requires an immersion, and a close look at what has come before. You have to drill down and get to the DNA of the brand. My work then consists of updating that, making it modern. With Christofle, it's been a nearly 10-year collaborative relationship. A fruitful one, because it happened at just the right time, when Christofle needed to reinvent itself. I think we've accomplished that. We've brought the brand into the 21st century, with variations on one of the most iconic objects around, the candelabra. I worked on the floral aspect, a recurrent motif in Christofle's pieces, refining and distilling it until what remained was the symbolism and the strength.”

The designer thrives on challenges, and is especially fond of changes in scale. For him, there's nothing quite like working on the design of a headset and switching to that of an entire building, as he did with Hotel O: “A hotel is an animated space that perfectly encapsulates what it is I do. It's a comprehensive way of life. In a hotel, you wake up in your room, you shower, you breakfast, and then you return later in the day to party or simply to sleep. It's a world unto itself, but I'm also interested in the contextuality of it all. At first, I did not want to take on the O project, because I did not find the space attractive enough. But then I figured that that's also part of a designer's job, namely to take a fairly chaotic environment, with nine-square-metre rooms, and turn it into an incredible living space. I designed it as I would a ship's cabin. But what's really interesting is not the size of it, but the ergonomics. Everything is focused on that space between the bed and the washroom. It's like a cocoon.”

"EACH PROJECT REQUIRES AN IMMERSION, AND A CLOSE LOOK AT WHAT HAS COME BEFORE. YOU HAVE TO DRILL DOWN AND GET TO THE DNA OF THE BRAND. MY WORK THEN CONSISTS OF UPDATING THAT, MAKING IT MODERN."

Despite his being one of the brightest stars in the design firmament, the irony of the overabundance of material goods in our consumerist society is not lost on Ora ïto. “Increasingly, I have been involved with ecological projects, and I'm very aware of developments in that area. It has been an

Design eye-opening experience, because as a designer I contribute to the pollution problem; I make plastic objects and I produce an enormous quantity of things. This realization has led me to come back to the essentials, and to more durable things. I avoid getting caught up in fashion trends. We're now in the age of dematerialization as well. I'm trying to make simpler objects, objects that practically disappear. For instance, take the One Line lamp I'm doing for Artemide. There was an initial version with a tube of a certain thickness for running the wiring; the second version featured LED lights, and so that feature was much more refined and less prominent; and now, I imagine the next version of the lamp will involve just the light — I would love that.” Never at a loss for words when asked what motivates him, ïto expounds: “Clearly, it's the brand. The brand must embody a number of critical things, including a history and a certain know-how. It's important to me. I'm quite the butterfly: I enjoy going from one hotbed of inspiration to another. I am faithful in my relationship to each brand I work with, but I'm not faithful to any one brand: I work with hundreds of them. I'm like a man who has a harem: he is faithful to his wives, but he does have many.” www.ora-ito.com

Whenever you have these circumstances that are shaking you emotionally and you feel that you are not in control, tattooing is like a primal way of dealing with all the shit going on.” The artist is the one responsible for many artworks on the skin of A-listers, including Orlando Bloom, Marc Jacobs and Robert Downey Jr. He is also the guy who had the brilliant idea of giving free tattoos to total strangers, if they were willing to put their arm or leg through a hole in a wall and get a secret tattoo of his choice. He did it last year in New York and earlier this October in London, attracting considerable media attention. If you are a tattoo lover as much as I am, or simply someone who can appreciate a great piece of art, you won’t be surprised to learn that there were quite a few volunteers more than ready to sacrifice themselves under the needle for the sake of art.

While saying this, he shows me the back of his left hand, where you can spot the shape of a tiny heart. “It’s a way of saying 'no matter what happens I will always be that guy with a heart tattoo on his hand.' It’s very reassuring, because we are always trying to make order from chaos. It’s a way of making us feel like we are in control.”

“Scott Campbell has a signature style that draws on past and present, combining ancient cursive script with a modern eye and execution, which is a perfect visual metaphor for how we at Hennessy honour our own craft,” comments Giles Woodyer, Senior Vice President, Hennessy. “Scott’s talent, passion and commitment to his craft reflect the same principles that have driven Hennessy for over 250 years.” I had the chance of meeting with Scott in Los Angeles, on the rooftop of the very “hipsterish” Ace Hotel, on the

HENNESSY COCKTAILS

Enjoy the best of what the iconic brand has to deliver!

“TATTOOS ARE A WAY OF TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR IDENTITY, OF DISTINGUISHING YOURSELF FROM THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU. IT’S A WAY OF BEING IN CONTROL OVERALL. IT’S SUPER POWERFUL. YOU’RE TELLING PEOPLE AROUND YOU WHO YOU ARE AND YOU'RE DECIDING AT THE SAME TIME WHO YOU WANT TO BE.” Though he has the chance of hanging out with the rich and famous on a daily basis – his wife is after all the stunning and uber-talented actress Lake Bell - he remains grounded and humble. “For whatever reason, I gained some amount of notoriety in the tattoo world. I think maybe a part of it is due to the great respect I have for the origins of tattooing. I make sure that if you come to me, I understand emotionally why you are getting a tattoo and what you are trying to accomplish. At the end of the day, it’s not only about the esthetic part of it. Your tattoo becomes more a representation of how you were feeling that day. If you had an amazing time, it’s gonna become an amazing tattoo. It’s all about the experience.” It’s the kind of professional attitude that might certainly have attracted a notorious brand like Hennessy. Or maybe it's that he is simply very talented at what he does.
