publisher’s letter

抱緊溫馨 Let’s snuggLe up together Like two birds of a feather… 佳節將臨,四處的叮噹鈴聲已清晰可聞。聖誕節也 是《eliteGen》最愛的節日,每年我們都滿懷喜悅準備一 年一度的禮品指南,今年當然也不例外。從有Happy 2020字樣的化妝品,到Tiffany特別版電單車,每一頁都 注滿靈感。

With the holidays just around the corner, I’m sure you’re starting to hear sleigh bells jingling everywhere. It's no secret that Christmas is our favourite season here at eliteGen. So each year we take a lot of pleasure in preparing our annual gift guide: from the most festive makeup “2020” palette and a Tiffany-edition motorbike to an outlandish Advent calendar and a pricey ping pong table, our pages are brimming with gift-giving inspiration.

西方傳說︰聖誕老人會在頑皮孩子的聖誕襪裡放一 塊炭;然而,如果你在聖誕禮襪內找到炭,先不要失 望,原來含炭護膚品具有排毒功效,最適合過度吸收的 時節,今期的美容專欄便推介從頭呵護到腳的多款含炭 產品。

And don’t despair if you find a lump of ”coal” in your Xmas stocking because charcoal-based skincare products are great for detoxification—an essential step in this season of excess. Check out our beauty pages for products that will pamper you from head to toe.

氣溫下降,保暖為重,大家找到今冬理想的禦寒外 套沒有?加拿大人最是懂得冬天,今期特意介紹5個加 國本土出色外套品牌的最新設計,助你漂亮舒服地安度 寒冬。還會引領大家將視線穿越漫長冬日,一睹巴黎、 倫敦、米蘭和紐約四大時裝展的的2020年春夏新裝。 誠摯歡迎汽車專欄作家、備受業界尊崇的Norris McDonald加入我們的團隊。作為前Toronto Star Wheels編輯,Norris的作品獲得過無數獎項及被引用, 是首位進入加拿大汽車運動名人堂的傳媒人。他出席了 保時捷首輛電動汽車Taycan的揭幕活動,甚至將其中一 輛開上德國著名的無限速高速公路,想知道他的第一身 駕駛感受?自然不能錯過今期的汽車專欄。 封面女郎岑麗香的寶寶己經8個月大了,她認為急促 步伐的演藝事業,為她轉換到母親角色做足準備;粉絲 們大概急於知道她會不會像我們的九月封面女郎鍾嘉欣 般,在原居地溫哥華相夫教子,且聽她細細道來。

As the mercury drops, no doubt you’ll want to bundle up. And since no one knows Canadian winters like we Canadians do, we turned to five of our country’s most prominent outerwear designers for the latest parkas to keep us nice and toasty all winter long. And to help you look past the snowy days ahead, we even bring you the Spring/ Summer 2020 collections from Paris, London, Milan and New York. I would also like to take a moment to personally welcome esteemed auto journalist Norris McDonald to our roster of writers. The former editor of Toronto Star Wheels has received numerous awards and citations for his work, and is the first journalist to be inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame. He was present at the unveiling of the Porsche Taycan, the German automaker’s first electric car—he even took one out for a spin on the Autobahn. The verdict? Check out his debut column. Also, discover why Cover Girl Eliza Sam thinks that her career in showbiz provided the perfect preparation for her new role as a mom. Her fans are fretting about whether she will settle down in her former hometown in Vancouver like our September Cover Girl Linda Chung did. Will she or won't she? Well, let her tell you herself. I hope you enjoy our holiday issue. And from all of us at eliteGen, we wish you a safe, warm and wonderful festive season. Sincerely,

希望大家喜歡我們的聖誕特刊,更祝讀者朋友們盡 享節日歡樂! Leslie Yip Associate Publisher

鼻尖上的櫻桃香

The cherry on Top Tom Ford scent this year’s Fragrance Foundation Women’s Luxury perfume of the year Story | Leslie Yip Tom Ford的私密調香系列一直是香水界的奇葩—2007年同 時發布10種不同的香水,到10年後大膽起用有異世俗的字眼作 名稱,很明顯,就是拒絕接受常規束縛。 當《Lost Cherry》於2018年發布時,瞬間吸引了無數逐香之 輩的注目。櫻桃是含糖飲料和針對年輕女孩的大眾市場中最受歡 迎的味道,那高級香水又如何呢?事實證明,櫻桃亦是贏家— 在被譽為是香水業界奧斯卡的Fragrance Foundation中,奪得 「女士奢侈品」類別中的「2019 年度香水」榮譽。 Louise Turner是調製出這種誘人馥郁芳香的調香師,她運 用獨門秘技避免令香氣甜得發膩。以一開瓶散發出黑櫻桃的味 道作為前調,中調是櫻桃甜酒混和苦杏仁。接著是令人心蕩神 馳的格賴英特櫻桃糖漿、土耳其玫瑰和桑巴茉莉,後調煥發出 烘焙零陵香豆、秘魯香脂和雪松木的煙熏木質柔軟感。儘管櫻 桃的特性貫徹在整個香調中,但香氣卻是複雜多變而感性。 瓶身的設計散發出香水對甜美和誘人世界的探索。漆上透 明櫻桃紅色的塞蓋式玻璃瓶身上,勾勒透視出標誌性的私密調 香系列剪影,原來這設計靈感源自滑亮的國際象棋外觀。

Tom Ford’s Private Blend has always been an oddball in the perfume world. From launching 10 different scents at the same time in 2007 to using an expletive in the name 10 years later, it’s clear the brand isn’t bound by convention. When Lost Cherry was announced last year it raised a number of eyebrows. The cherry is a favourite flavour in sugary drinks and mass-market scents targeting young girls—but a luxury perfume? Turns out it is a winner, literally capturing the 2019 Fragrance Foundation Perfume of the Year in the Women’s Luxury category. These awards are considered the Oscars of the fragrance industry. The nose behind this full-bodied gourmand scent is Louise Turner. She must have had a few tricks up her sleeve to prevent this scent from being sickly sweet. It starts with a pop of tart cherries, but it’s instantly warmed by a dash of cherry liqueur and bitter almond. The heart of griotte syrup, Turkish rose and sambac jasmine then emerge, finally evolving into the smoky softness of roasted tonka beans, Peru balm and cedar. While the characteristics of the cherry are unmistakeable, the scent is both sophisticated and sensuous. The bottle design draws on the fragrance’s exploration of worlds, both sweet and seductive. The translucent pink flacon is lacquered from the inside in cherry red, outlining the signature Private Blend silhouette inspired by a chess piece.

岑麗香是2010年國際中華小姐及2009年溫哥華華裔 小姐的冠軍。因為其主演劇集《巴不得媽媽》的「香香公主」 角色大受歡迎而被傳媒稱為「香香」。憑其甜美笑容及不造 作的性格深受觀眾歡迎,是2013年「飛躍進步女藝員」的得 主。

Eliza Sam began her showbiz career with two shining crowns on her head: one was as Miss Chinese Vancouver in 2009 and the other for Miss Chinese International in 2010. And there was her role in Divas in Distress that made her hugely popular. She also bagged the 2013 TVB Anniversary Award for Most Improved Female Artist just three years after her screen debut.

自榮升媽媽後,香香的受歡迎程度依然有增無減, Instagram追蹤人數更破了一百萬大關。

But the actress has been busy playing another role these days, probably her most important one yet. And that is being a first-time mom.

在天下媽媽眼中,BB的一舉一動,都是刻骨銘心 的,岑麗香也不例外,她心目中的感動時刻,盡是小情小 趣,「Jacob只有幾個月大,雖然未識行路,未懂說話,但 他每日都在成長,由飯糰般,慢慢變成一個小人兒,開始 認識自己的手手腳腳,看見他的成長,感覺好奇妙。」 香香邊說邊拿起手機,展示她放上IG的BB生活記趣 片段,「你看,BB被自己的聲音嚇倒,好cute呀!」BB的 每個第一次,都是媽媽的美好回憶,「BB初出生時很脆 弱,我好想保護他,他第一次捉實我的手指,第一次眼定 定望著我,第一次對我笑,第一次笑到咭咭聲,而且愈來 愈多表情,每一件都是難忘又感動的回憶。」

“Jacob is just a few months old and is not walking or talking yet,” says Sam, “but he’s getting bigger every day—from the size of a rice ball to a small person. He’s discovering his hands and feet. It’s amazing to watch him grow.” The 35-year-old Vancouver native proudly shows off snippets of baby Jacob posted on her Instagram, which has now surpassed one million followers: “Look here, he was scared by the sound he made. So cute. He looked so fragile at birth. I wanted to protect him. When he grabbed my fingers for the first time, stared, smiled or chuckled for the first time, all the while showing more and more expressions, every single moment was unforgettable and moving.”

cover girl 曾經有新手媽媽級藝人分享:「拍戲練成捱更抵夜的本領,所以 湊B一點也難不倒我。」香香也經歷過此艱辛訓練,卻有不同看法︰「我 覺得是兩回事啊!拍劇現場有商有量,給我五分鐘補補妝,也不是難 事,但BB半夜要換片、要餵奶,哪會遷就?遲五秒也沒商量呢,哈 哈!」

成長大躍進 一個小人兒,為香香的生活帶來了巨變,揹上媽媽這個身份後, 她的心態也來個大躍進。 「由小到大,我都是一個頗care free的人,做人做事都不會想得太 多,喜歡順其自然,外出也不會帶雨傘防身,出門前半小時才施施然 開始化妝,心裡想:『遲到少少,沒甚麼關係啦!』但自從Jacob出世 之後,就不能再這樣care free,帶他外出前一晚,我會寫好check list ,收拾好袋子,害怕遲到或是忘記帶BB的必需品。」重新學習,為時未 晚,何況旁邊還有強強這個軍師丈夫督促。 「丈夫性格跟我相反,他做事很有條理,以前他花許多時間等我, 現在我終於學懂了準時,哈哈!」她丈夫更加將照顧孩子任務當作商業 項目,兩夫婦變成合夥人,兩人各自投入的努力,不止是50%,而是 100%。「他說這是互相包底的概念,各自付出100%,一旦其中一個太 累或者病倒,力量跌watt,另一人可以補充,無時無刻都有超越100% 的表現,維持實力,嘩!很像打仗!」 這個照顧孩子攻略,由強強表姐傳授,香香的媽媽負責實戰,變 成最寵BB 的婆婆。「BB一哭,媽咪便第一時間衝上去抱抱,那個眼 神,令我好surprise。」在孫兒面前,婆婆流露出罕見的溫柔,「小時候 公公最疼我,甚麼也遷就我,媽咪只會在旁邊碌大雙眼怒視我,她的 溫柔,只獨家限定給baby Jacob,現在輪到我做嚴厲媽媽了。」

One showbiz mom once suggested that staying up late at night on the set was good training for staying up to care for her baby. Sam has been through this baptism by fire, too, but she has a slightly different take. “It’s different,” she says. “On set, there were discussions and touch-up breaks. It’s not that challenging. But babies need to have nappies changed and be fed in the middle of the night. There is no negotiation. You can’t ‘take five’ first.”

GrOWInG BY LEApS And BOundS This tiny tot has brought big changes to Sam’s life. Her mindset has taken a somersault after becoming a mom. “I have been rather carefree most of my life. I didn’t overthink and would let things take their course. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t have an umbrella in the bag. I put on makeup half an hour before heading out, because it’s alright being a little late. “Since Jacob arrived, though, carefree doesn’t work anymore. The night before taking him out, I have to prepare a checklist and pack the baby bag, in case we run behind schedule, or I forget any baby necessities.” It’s not too late to learn, plus she has help from her loving husband, Joshua ngo. “He is very different from me, very organized,” says Sam. “He used to spend a lot of time waiting for me. now I have finally learned to be on time.” ngo has approached parenthood like a business project, the two of them having become partners. “He describes it as having each other’s back,” says Sam. “We give our all, and if one of us is too tired or falls sick, then the other fills in. It means there will always be more than 100 per cent. It’s like a battle.” This childcare strategy was passed on by ngo’s cousin, and Sam’s mother is there to help with the real work. She has become an indulgent grandma. “When the baby cries, my mom will rush forward to pick him up. I’m very surprised by the earnest look in her eyes. When I was small, my grandpa doted on me, and mom would shoot me a stern look. Her gentleness is for baby Jacob alone. now it’s my turn to be the stern mom.”

重燃事業心

rE-IGnITInG EnTHuSIASM FOr WOrk

新手媽媽忙得團團轉,並沒有冷卻她對工作的熱情。 由停工準備生孩子至復工,香香暫別工作八個月,復工心 情既興奮又忐忑,「第一次出席品牌宣傳活動,心情極之 複雜,好期待,好緊張,但又捨不得BB,家中有個得意 人仔,怎會捨得出門?最後要丈夫催促我,提醒我不要遲 到。」

Being a new mother is hectic, but her enthusiasm towards work has not diminished. After eight months of maternity leave, she was initially apprehensive about returning. “When I attended a brand event for the first time after maternity leave, it was a complicated feeling. I looked forward to it, but was also nervous, and didn’t want to leave my baby. Why would you want to leave home when there is an adorable little pumpkin at home.”

不過,與合作夥伴重聚,那股工作氣氛,又重燃她心 中的那團火,「原來投入工作,能給我另一股能量,成就更 好的自己。」她將工作時間視為me time,每一次me time, 都有助她提升為更好的媽媽,「間中抽離一下,其實是一個 喘息機會,思考怎樣為BB做得更好。」 做媽媽以後,所有可能影響BB利益的舉措,也一律 說不。「現在不能過度節食,令BB缺糧;想有效修身,一 定要靠運動,跳跳鄭多燕健康舞、練練瑜伽,保持身心健 康,這樣最適合自己。第一次出活動雖然有keep fit壓力, 但我已盡了力,哈哈!」 香香自從今年3月誕下兒子Jacob後,便全職相夫教 子,要到十一個月底才復出拍劇:「現在感覺有點忐忑,因 為可以做回自己喜歡的工作,但同時間又很緊張,因為可 能要長時間工作,又要重新學習背讀劇本和演戲。然而即 使有很多功課要做,但真的很期待。」

upon reuniting with work partners, her enthusiasm for work was re-ignited. For her, “getting back to work generated another form of energy and made me better.” She looks at the time at work as “me time” and she believes every moment of it helps to make her a better mother. “It’s good to take a breather from time to time, and think about how to be better for the baby.” Having a baby has affected her life choices. “I can’t diet too much because I’m nursing. I have to exercise to stay fit, doing the Jung da-yeon dance or yoga. This suits me better. There was pressure to keep fit for attending the first event after my leave of absence. I did my best.” Sam wants to make the most of her star-turned-mom status before fully returning to showbiz. She says she will “take on low-pressure and short stints initially. It will take good co-ordination to take on a TV series again.” Yet Sam has already begun filming a new TV drama last month. “It feels great to return to the work I have always loved. Yet, at the same time, I am a little bit nervous. I think I will need some time to re-adjust to the long hours and feel comfortable in front of the camera again, but I look forward to all of it.”

cover girl Best friend丈夫 香香的顧慮,並不是丈夫下了禁制令,他反而一直鼓勵太 太放膽嘗試,「每次我跟同事通電話,都是開了揚聲器,所以他 知道我因為照顧BB,推卻好些機會,我們由初相識到現在,都 是無所不談的好朋友,他很明白我的忐忑心情。」 強強說過的幾句話,令香香得到最大的安慰:「他說︰『想 做就放心去做吧!嘗試過才知道自己真正的想法,BB還有我和 家人照顧。』」這份尊重和承諾,是最寶貴的禮物。「好多謝他給 我一百分安全感。」岑麗香從來都是感性的人,說著說著,她鼻 子開始發紅,像快要掉下淚來,「我以前已經是喊包,生BB之後 荷爾蒙更澎湃,復工日做訪問講老公和BB,也幾乎哭出來,哈 哈!」 轉眼間小Jacob已經九個多月大,但香香仍未有囝囝教育計 劃,「香港競爭的確好厲害,我只希望他健康、快樂、善良,有 抗逆能力和懂得跟別人相處,考試幾多分,不是最重要。」 她坦言有想過舉家回流加拿大,但不是短期內的事,「我仍 然很享受工作,未打算做全職媽媽。」不少粉絲擔心她效法鍾嘉 欣回流,「多謝粉絲的關心,其實現在透過社交平台也可隨時連 繫,加港兩邊飛也很快,想見面,隨時也可以。」

BEST FrIEnd And HuSBAnd Her trepidation about committing to work was, by no means, due to any influence from her husband. “I talked to colleagues on speaker phone, so he knew I had turned away many jobs because I wanted to put the baby first. We have been the best of friends since the moment we met. He knew I was struggling with the idea of returning to work. “He said go ahead if I wanted and that I had to try it before I knew what I really wanted. He assured me that the baby would be cared for by him and the family. Such regard and commitment is the biggest gift for me. I’m very thankful that he makes me feel absolutely secure.” Always the emotional one, Sam was choking back tears, admitting that she “cried easily in the past. The post-natal hormones made me even more emotional. I almost cried when I was doing the interview about my husband and baby on the day I returned to work.” Although baby Jacob is only nine months old, Sam is already thinking of what schools her son should go to. “The competition in Hong kong is brutal. I hope he grows up healthy, happy, kind, resilient and personable. Scores don’t matter a bit.” She admits they have thought about moving back to Canada, but it won’t happen in the near future. “I still enjoy working and am not planning to be a full-time mom yet,” she says. Her fans are concerned that she might move back to Canada, like her good friend Linda Chung. “I’m very touched by my fans’ concern,” says Sam. “Social media these days provide good platforms for staying connected. We can always make quick journeys between Hong kong and Canada. We can always see each other when we want to catch up.”

The new code Audemars Piguet always a showcase of extraordinary artistry Story | 伍旋卓 Photography | 陳鐵剛  Audemars Piguet今年推出全新Code 11.59腕錶,品牌CEO Francois-Henry Bennahmias說Code 11.59不是賺錢產品,它結合不同系 列DNA。「很多用家是從小朋友年代接觸AP,過程中,品牌要建立不同形 象,要煉製一枚經典腕錶,過程很漫長。」翻查資料,AP去年的銷售額已 達十億瑞士法郎,所以Code 11.59系列是不用背負商業元素的新成員,純 粹展示品牌大膽創新工藝。外圓內八角形的Code 11.59腕錶,錶身看似簡 單,原來是把兩個不同形狀錶身接合而成,當中錶耳又涉及複雜的鏤空工 藝,有強烈立體視覺,突破工藝極限。Code 11.59有很多個不同錶款,包 括簡約三針及計時版,當中焦點必定是三問報時版本。

According to CEO Francois-Henry Bennahmias, Audemars Piguet’s latest Code 11.59 was made as a celebration of its history as a luxury watchmaker, combining the DNA of many different collections into one masterpiece movement. And the company’s success, which sold in excess of a billion Swiss Francs last year, made it possible for them to create a watch without thinking whether it would make them lots of money. So with the Code 11.59, AP only meant to showcase extraordinary artistry without worrying about the bottom line.

搭載2953機芯,擁有品牌Supersonnerie超級三問技術的Code 11.59 三問報時錶,音質極好,亦有高度防水能耐,配合保護機制,能隨時調校 日期。Supersonnerie概念源自2006年,當時AP與洛桑聯邦理工學院EPFL 合作研發三問錶聲學,又邀來樂器工匠、音響工程師等參與,其成品最終 於2019年推出。賣相絕不高調的三問錶,看似簡約大三針,但留意到九時 位置的滑桿,是與弧形錶面及錶身成為同一曲線。2953機芯特別之處是複 雜及創新的三問系統,包括專利音簧、調速器及共鳴錶底。錶內有平板形 的共鳴裝置,令報時聲由錶底側面傳出,就算佩戴在手腕上,也沒有影響 其聲量。內裏安全機制更是突破三問錶規限,包括自調報時分鐘誤差,以 及防止「當機」系統,即用家於三問報時中,仍可自由調校時間,不會影響 齒輪運算。

The collection features a time-only model, a chronograph and a show-stopping Minute Repeater Supersonnerie, the latter of which is fitted with a 2953 calibre (pictured left). The Supersonnerie concept was conceived in 2006 when AP and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne researched and developed the technology for minute repeaters. They invited musical instrument experts and sound engineers to join the project. It is comprised of patented gongs, a regulator and a sound board.

英軍實戰測試

精準飛行機械

Air Force precision

The ALT1-ZT/51 is crystal coated with nine layers of anti-reflective materials specifically designed for flying Story | 伍旋卓 Photography | 蔡建新 & Bremont 英國的Bremont歷史並不簡單。首先,品牌名字並不是來自家族, 而是一位法國老農民Antonie Bremont。原來一九九○年,創辦人兩兄 弟Giles和Nick駕駛一台一九三○年的雙翼飛機飛越法國上空,途中遇 上英倫海峽的極端天氣,需要緊急着陸。為免驚動法國政府,他們透過 飛機上的無綫電與附近一位法國農民Antonie聯絡,協助降落在農田。 Antonie把飛機放於穀倉維修,並邀請Giles和Nick到家中休息。原來 Antonie是「二戰」飛行員,退役後專攻鐘錶維修,從而啟發了兄弟倆對鐘 錶的熱情。兩人為紀念這位老農民的救命之恩,遂以Bremont為品牌名 字,及後生產的每款腕錶,堅持要飛行功能為先,例如品牌去年推出的 ALT1-ZT/51,錶鏡有九層防反光物料,全是為飛行用途而設。 去年美國波音公司一百周年紀念,便與Bremont合作推出Boeing 100腕錶,錶身的Ti 6-4鈦金屬物料更是取材自飛機零件。今年品牌又與 英國國防部合作,生產及設計了Armed Forces系列,經過多重實戰測 試,是少有性能上能達到軍事級標準的腕錶。 與英國軍方合作設計給飛行員使用的Armed Forces Arrow,外觀來 自「二戰」英軍Dirty Dozen錶款。採用BE-51AE自動上鏈機芯,錶身抗磨 度是軍用級別的精鋼,測試過程包括抗衡強力磁場、高空超低氣壓、濕 度、鹽霧、腐蝕及彈射撞擊等,所以錶底皇家御用認證標記是一個身份 的象微,並不是單純聯乘合作。BE-51AE機芯經過仔細的改裝,性能針 對高空時的極限環境。

Bremont from England has an illustrious past. It was not named after the founder’s family, but an elderly French farmer Antonie Bremont. The story was that the founding brothers Giles and Nick flew a 1930 biplane to France, but met with extreme weather across the English Channel. They needed to make an emergency landing but didn’t want to alert the French government. So they sent out radio signals and connected with nearby Antonie Bremont, landing on his farmland. Antonie hid the plane in his barn for repair and invited Giles and Nick to rest at his home. It turned out that Antonie was a pilot himself during WWII. After decommissioning from the Air Force, he took up watch repair. He made the brothers fall in love with horology. To show their thanks, the duo named their brand Bremont, and each watch produced since then was primarily designed for flying. The ALT1-ZT/51 introduced last year is crystal coated with nine layers of anti-reflective materials specifically designed for flying. As Boeing marked its centenary last year, it partnered with Bremont to introduce the Boeing 100 watch. The Ti 6-4 titanium used for the case is typically used for making aircraft parts. This year, the brand partnered with UK’s Ministry of Defense to design and produce the Armed Forces collection, which has undergone vigorous field testing to prove their superior specs as military-grade timepieces. The engraving of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces Heraldic Badges on the caseback is a badge of honour, far more significant in connotation than the collaboration itself. The BE-51AE calibre has been meticulously remodelled to perform accurately even in high-pressure conditions in the sky. $6,100

穿西裝適合用背包嗎?

getting back to backpacks Suits and briefcases have gone handin-hand with the business crowd for more than a century. But the growing trend of practical backpacks is showing no signs of slowing Story | Calvin Wong Photography | Bowy Chan

西裝與公事包,似乎是上班族 的既定制服。事實上,正裝西 裝的設計本來就沒有考慮背包 的配搭,因為筆直且合身的剪 裁,以及西裝內部為了撐起 版型的襯布(interlining),會 因為背包的肩帶和重量而破 壞輪廓,稍不小心便顯得 狼狽。然而造型配搭從來 沒有對錯之分,只在於如 何挑選,西裝與背包並非 誓不兩立。

The Do’S 顏色 Colour 首先可從顏色入手,黑色、啡色和深色必定最 為安全,配搭西裝才不會顯得突兀,譁眾取寵的搶 眼色調會降低西裝的正式感。若嫌暗色太過沉悶, 可選擇帶有少量顏色和圖案的款式,例如Fendi和 Loewe的螢光細節,或Sandro的彩色字樣繡章。外 形設計簡約亦很重要,多餘的間隔和細節會與西裝 形成。

Black, brown and other dark earthy hues are the safest bet when in a suit. That is not to say that a dash of colour is an absolute no. Fendi and loewe incorporate fluorescent details while Sandro uses embroidered letters in multiple hues for a bit of added pop.

物料 MATeriAl 強烈對比,顯得格格不入。材質上,皮革無疑是首選,因為皮革 的質感顯得較高檔,袋形也較硬挺。皮革之外,可嘗試選擇優質的尼 龍布料,Dior今季的尼龍背包縫上經典的菱格紋,款式介乎正裝與休 閒之間。Prada簡約的尼龍背包最為百搭,今季更用皮革裁成科學怪人 的圖案。

leather is the best choice for its supple and superior look, but practical high-quality nylon will last forever.

背包太重 overloADing

西裝配街牌背囊,令人感覺不 夠專業,街頭還是穿便服時才用好 了。

多間隔儘管實用,但這種運動 背包看起來像電車男,那些專為商 務而設的多功能背包也可免則免。

選對了背包,還要懂得如何使 用,裝得太重會破壞西裝肩部形態, 亦會導致駝背。

穿正裝應該盡量從簡,花俏的 背包會讓正經造型變得兒戲。

Pairing a suit with a causal urban backpack can come across as disheveled and unprofessional.

While it is practical to have many compartments, a sports backpack with many pockets and zippers is best suited to be worn by a student not a businessman.

even a well-chosen backpack can look ill-fitting if you overload it with stuff. When too heavy, a backpack will cause the shoulder of the suit to lose its shape. Worse still, it will hunch your back and give you bad posture.

When wearing a formal suit, simple is always best. A backpack that’s too colourful, or has too many patterns, will look immature and less professional.

時代視野

ExpErimEntal ElEgancE Dior blends urban street with couture Story | 冰汪 剛踏入四十歲的Dior主帥Kim Jones,身懷英國紳士風度翩翩的 DNA,後天卻瘋狂迷戀街頭文化,夏秋兩季先後夥拍街頭大師KAWS 及日本傳奇藝術家空山基合作,完美結合街頭藝術與高級時裝。來到 2019冬季系列,他請來美國藝術家Raymond Pettibon獻技,貫徹他為 Sonic Youth及Black Flag等經典唱片封套繪畫的美式黑白漫畫風格, 為Dior畫了幾幅新作。超級焦點是二次創作的蒙羅麗莎,或者一系列 動物圖案,即使是簡單一個Dior字款,看似隨隨便便寫就,也覺格外 好看。 只要細心留意Kim Jones的衣服,自會發現他在每個系列,都會 作出不同實驗,嘗試顛覆男裝傳統。今季他從Mr. Dior在1955年的舊 作獲得靈感,在多套西裝之內,僭建了一條可拆除的長長絲巾。作為 西裝之伸延。絲巾是由三粒鈕扣在西裝肩膀內相連,斜斜繞過模特兒 上身,再靠一招單手插袋,聰明地把絲巾往下牽引。絲巾闊度,相當 於傳統男士禮服的腰封,打破tuxedo的長年困局。 系列中,另一焦點是外在僭建一件軍事味濃郁的背心。Kim Jones說乃是看到巴黎市內的歷史人物雕塑,不少均穿上背心盔甲,便 將此法國英雄豪傑的形象,搬到Dior天橋。他更刻意在時裝騷上,搭 建一條七十六米長的輸送帶,運送全體男模,像雕塑一樣企著出場。

Dior’s Kim Jones is 40, yet he’s still madly in love with urban street culture. Beautifully blended with the elegance of the English gentleman, Jones previously partnered with streetwear master Kaws and legendary Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama for a daring mix of street art with couture. Continuing in that avant garde direction, his Fall/Winter 2019/2020 collection includes the monochrome comic-strip style of American artist Raymond Pettibon. Attention is on a reimagined Mona Lisa and a series of animal prints. Even the seemingly effortlessly renewed typography of the Dior logo is a delight. Jones experiments endlessly to put a new spin on menswear. For this season, he also referenced the 1955 works of Christian Dior himself and added a detachable long scarf to a classic suit. Another highlight is the vest-on-jacket, a military look inspired by French statues in armour.

Diabla owner and art director José Antonio Gandía-Blasco Canales was born in Valencia. After graduating with a law degree from the University of Valencia, he joined the family’s blanket manufacturing business. In the 1990s, he acquired his own dream summer retreat in Ibiza, but felt that existing outdoor furniture didn’t meet his refined aesthetic. So Canales set out to work with designers to create his own outdoor decor— that became the driving force behind the evolution of the family business. His outdoor brand Gandia Blasco has gained global recognition. Another brand, Gan Rugs, came next, specializing in exquisite household linen. Diabla is his third venture.

Working with designer Pablo Gironés, Canales adopted that silhouette for the outdoor pieces and made them bright red so they scream for attention. And they even have something for your pooch to enjoy. Young architects Manel Jiménez Ibáñez and Violeta Alcaide Weishaupt designed a dog house named Touffu, featuring a classic triangular splint roof. It’s a flat-packed design, with each piece easily slotted together, requiring no tools for assembly. Touffu comes in different sizes to suit big or small pets.

Diabla appeals primarily to a younger market. So young designer Jonathan Lawes, a British painter/designer who originally worked on graphic and fabric designs with liberal use of geometric prints, was the ideal partner. The brand followed his Instragram account for a while before reaching out to him to propose a collaboration. The Mona table features Lawes’s painting with different pastel shades to create a stunning contrast against the blue of pool water. And designer Alejandra Gandía-Blasco Lloret is also part of the family design business. Her feminine Plisy light is USB rechargeable and can work for 10 hours when fully charged. It comes with a dedicated stand to transform it into a floor lamp and also has a handle, so it can be carried like a handbag.

皇味十足

The Dalmore The largest collection of precious aged single malts in the world Story | Alan A. Vernon

The Dalmore酒廠由Alexander Matheson創辦,自1839年 便矗立在蘇格蘭克羅馬蒂峽灣之畔,令品牌引以為傲的,是代代 傳承的精湛工藝及高瞻遠見。 歷經150多年,The Dalmore已經為其他威士忌製造商樹立 了標準:包括酒桶的精心管理、世代相傳的專業知識,以及每個 參與製作優質單一麥芽威士忌過程的人員的全情投入。

皇家封賞 The Dalmore的歷史可以追溯回1263年,當時Mackenzie 氏族的首領、Kintail地區的Colin,無懼一隻盛怒的雄鹿威脅, 拯救了國王亞歷山大三世的性命,為了表彰此功績,國王授予 Mackenzie氏族在盾形紋章上使用12尖角鹿徽標誌的權利。氏族 後人在1867年成為The Dalmore釀酒廠東主後,皇家雄鹿即成為 認可標記,至今一直傲然鎸刻在酒廠生產的每瓶酒上。

釀酒廠今天所在。 The Dalmore Distillery today.

Founded by Alexander Matheson, The Dalmore distillery has been operating on the banks of the Cromarty Firth since 1839 and prides itself on an unbroken chain of visionary and influential craftsmen. For more than 150 years, The Dalmore has set the standards that many other whisky makers follow today: the personal curating of casks, the expertise handed down over generations and the obsession of everyone involved in the making of a luxury single malt whisky.

RoyAl RooTs The Dalmore’s heritage dates back to 1263, the year Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the King granted the Mackenzie Clan the right to use the 12 pointed stag emblem on their coat of arms. When descendants of the clan became owners of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, the Royal stag became the recognizable icon that today proudly adorns each bottle.

The Dalmore擁有蘇格蘭最稀有和最古老的威士忌珍藏, Paterson在建立The Constellation Collection珍藏系列過程中,細 細品味及品嚐了數以百計獨特的威士忌,才能作出最終的選擇。他 表示:「這些單桶威士忌都是非凡的工藝,展現了酒和桶之間持久 而深厚的關係。威士忌需要時間成熟,我也需要時間親自管理最後 21個酒桶,以締造The Constellation Collection珍藏系列。」

The Dalmore holds some of the rarest and oldest whisky stocks in scotland. While creating The Constellation Collection, Paterson had to meticulously nose and taste hundreds of distinctive whiskies in order to make his final selection. says Paterson: “These single cask whiskies are truly a remarkable piece of craftsmanship that showcases the enduring and bountiful relationship between the spirit and the cask. Just as the whisky took time to mature, it also took me time to personally curate the final 21 casks which would form The Constellation Collection.”

Focused on high-elevation wines of the Italian mountain ranges—the Alps, the Dolomites, the Apennines and the Volcanic islands—these food-friendly wines are unique in character and expression. For the most part, they are made by female winemakers who follow biodynamic, organic and/or lowintervention methodologies. Meanwhile, the cocktail menu features original drinks that are influenced by classic Italian drinks and culture, using Italian wines and spirits. As well, there is a selection of unique or seasonal local beers, like Burdock’s Ero III (made with Montmorency cherries and pinot noir)

(Poon has staged with top Bangkok table, Bo.lan). Besides homemade shrimp pastes and jungle curries, there’s binchotan char-grilled Thai BBQ, including homemade sausages, fermented meats and punchy snacks like betel leaf one-bite wraps. “I just really love and care about this cuisine,” says Palcu-chang. “I feel like it deserves a lot more respect than it has gotten (in terms of the kitchen). That’s all we’re trying to do: make the best versions of the things we’ve experienced and tasted. This has been 10 years in the making [for me]. There are just so many things I’ve wanted to share with Toronto and the people in the city that I’m really excited to do.” To pair with the flavourful plates, beverage manager Krysta Oben offers a changing wine list that’s light, largely natural and made by small producers. There’s a huge by-the-glass selection that includes a wide range from sparkling to pink, and skin contact wines that give more options than the usual go-to Riesling or beer.

With a by-the-glass program that changes three times a week, there’s plenty to interest everyone. Don’t worry if this is uncharted territory; the knowledgeable and hospitable staff will help you navigate the list—or you can just nerd out on items of interest. On a given visit, you might find a natural galician wine listed with a classic clean French cider and/or a Piedmont wine made with old varietals. Partake perhaps in unique small-producer wines from France, a fresh and zippy Umbrian Sangiovese, or maybe try the wine that’s exclusively made for the restaurant group by Pearl Morissette. Whatever the wine selection, it’ll be well complemented by van gameren’s changing chalkboard menu of small composed dishes that are fresh, simple and seasonal. In addition to dishes like burrata with peas, or fennel with tonnato, habanero and bonito, there’s also charcuterie from local charcutier Scott Draper.

A trek to Peru’s Andean highlands has more rewards than its aweinspiring Incan ruins, including noteworthy Machu Picchu. In addition to untouched landscapes and endless trails, there are 28 microclimates that Mother Nature has spread her bounty over. Not to be overlooked, especially for food lovers, is a stay at Explora Valle Sagrado with cuisine created by one of the world’s top chefs, Virgilio Martínez who uses unique ingredients from the region. Located in a 60km stretch of the Peruvian Andes between popular Cusco and Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley of the Incas formed the heart of the Inca Empire. Besides landscapes punctuated by snow-dusted mountains, fertile farmland and valleys with zig-zagging rivers, there are Spanish colonial villages like Pisac and Ollantaytambo, plus the glistening patchwork of the pre-Inca era—and still functional—Maras Salt Mines. In the foothills of this diverse terrain, on a bumpy drive into Urquillos, lies Explora Valle Sagrado, a remote adventure lodge built in 2017 on an ancient corn plantation and constructed in collaboration with the Peruvian Institute of Archeology. Due to the Incan ruins that were uncovered during the building process, the luxury hacienda is clad in arresting woodwork that blends well with the serene landscape.

Martínez不時走進廚房巡查,甚至會即興下廚,就好像這道在客人面前完成的豬頸肉。 Martínez frequently checks in on the kitchen and might even be on hand to finish your dish, like the pork neck, tableside.

Drawing from the diversity of high-altitude products and ancestral traditions used to prepare the array of indigenous ingredients from producers within the Sacred Valley, Martínez has developed an immersive experience that connects the guest’s palate to the land. Simpler than the tasting experiences at Central or Mil, the rotating lunch and dinner menus were created exclusively for Explora, meaning guests are privy to Martínez’s food without the need of a hard-to-come-by reservation. His Nuestra Cocina menu may feature pink hand-harvested Maras salt to local cheeses and native Andean potatoes that have been cultivated and crossbred to increase their antioxidant and nutrient levels. Guests might even sample special varieties of corn and purple quinoa from the property itself.

其他不可錯過的美食還有當地水果如釋迦果cherimoya, 以及吞拿魚配秘魯黑薄荷葉及脆藜麥。安坐於酒店餐廳,望著 壯麗的山景,邊品嘗美食,邊呷一口新鮮薄荷茶 muña ,是何 等寫意。 甜品同樣精彩,Quillabamba朱古力蛋糕是好選擇。看似 簡單的咖啡、乳酪及接骨木果甜品,味道及口感都十分出色, 好吃得一點也不想放過。 這裡更提供多款兒童餐,薄餅、炸雞塊等應有盡有。小朋 友可以吃到由名廚親自炮製的芝士意大利雲吞及雜菜,絕對值 得炫耀一番。 酒店的Pumacahua Bath House本來是一間建於17世 紀殖民地時期的房子,後來在秘魯考古學院協助下進行修復 並改建成水療中心。名字以1814年帶領庫斯科叛亂的Mateo Pumacahua來命名,房子建於曾經是印加帝國的土地,亦是 這位秘魯獨立運動英雄的家。享受過專業按摩師的服務,又可 前往隔鄰的暖水泳池及熱水池浸沿,讓勞累的雙腳得以紓緩。 如果我家有齊這些配套服務就好了。

Sample Andean fruits, like cherimoya, and tuna tossed together with loose huacatay ice and crispy quinoa as you relax with a cup of fresh muña (Andean mint) tea under the gaze of mountains in the open dining room. Cap off the meal with a chocolate cake covered in Quillabamba chocolate ganache. Even the simple-sounding coffee, yoghurt and elderberry dessert is a cacophony of flavours and stunning textures that teases the satiated to lap the dish clean of its crisp shards, sweet caramel, cool dairy, delicate flowers and loose, moist cake. There’s even a kids menu with all the favourites, like pizza Americana and chicken fingers. It’s not often you can boast that your littles ones had cheese ravioli and vegetables from one of the world’s top chefs. If a full belly doesn’t lull you to sleep, book an appointment at the Pumacahua Bath House, a 17th-century colonial house-turned-spa that’s been restored with help from the Archaeology Institute of Peru. Named after Mateo Pumacahua, who led the Cusco Rebellion in 1814, the structure is built on the same Inca-era foundation the Peruvian independence hero called home. Allow those knots and any stress to melt away at the hands of your masseuse or head next door to the sanctuary’s heated pool and hot tubs to relieve those well-trodden feet. One thing is certain: this is no place like home.

全電動保時捷

Need for speed

The all-electric porsche Taycan will satisfy the racer in you—and with a zero Co2 footprint Story | Norris McDonald

2019


我老遠到丹麥哥本哈根試駕保時捷2020年款的全電動跑車 Taycan,得出的結論是—電動車真實可行,會有其市埸。至於電 動車何時才能成為主流車輛,就要看政府及有關機構是否願意投資 數以億元計的金錢在基礎設施,以支援駕駛人士使用電動車。 由發布Taycan及其隨後首次亮相所用的時間,可說是汽車營 銷和公關史上最長的,箇中情況讓我一一道來。 今年8月中,我飛到阿特蘭大的保時捷體驗中心出席這款車的 兩個型號,即Turbo和Turbo S的技術簡介會。它讓我認識到這車的 方方面面,而最重要的是,它怎樣做到二氧化碳零排放。 Taycan搭載了起跑控制(Launch Control) 功能,旗艦型號 Turbo S可迸發出最高560千瓦(750匹馬力) ,而Turbo則可輸出最 高達500千瓦(670 匹馬力) 。Taycan Turbo S在2.8 秒內便可從靜 止狀態加速到時速100公里,而Turbo也只是需要3.2秒,它們的最 高時速同樣是270公里。 成就這個驕人速度,靠的就是純電力推動,不會污染大氣層或 破壞寧靜的環境。 四個星期之後,這款電車就在尼亞加拉大瀑布—首個引進公共 水力發電到加拿大的城市—正式亮相,我特意駕車到大瀑布參加了 這項活動。與此同時,廠方也在柏林附近的一個太陽能發電場和中 國平潭島的一個風力發電場為這款全電動車舉行揭幕儀式。 再兩個星期後,我飛到哥本哈根登上這台全球首輛全電動跑 車。經過兩天的試駕,我毫無懸念地給它一個讚。

I’ve come to Copenhagen, Denmark to drive the 2020 all-electric Porsche Taycan and I’ve reached a number of conclusions: Electric cars are real and here to stay; how quickly they become mainstream will depend on how willing governments and others are to spend the billions necessary to build infrastructure to support them; and the unveiling, and subsequent debut, of the Taycan (pronounced Tie-can, by the way) had to have been the longest in the history of automotive marketing and public relations. Allow me to explain. In mid-August, I flew to Atlanta to attend a technical briefing about the car—which has two models, the Turbo and the Turbo S—at the Porsche Experience Centre. While in class, I learned virtually everything there was to know about the car. About how—and this is most important—it would leave no—zero—CO2 footprint. I also learned that the flagship Turbo S can generate up to 560 kW (750 hp) with Launch Control and the Taycan Turbo up to 500 kW (670 hp). The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The top speed of both is 270 km/h. All that without polluting the atmosphere or disrupting the tranquility of the environment. Four weeks later, I drove to Niagara Falls where the whole car was officially unveiled in the city where public hydroelectric power was introduced to Canada. There were simultaneous unveilings on a solar farm near Berlin and a wind farm on Pingtan Island in China. Six weeks after going to Atlanta and two after Niagara, I flew to Copenhagen to actually climb aboard and strap into the world’s first all-electric sports car. All I have to say after our two-day drive is that I still have a big smile on my face.

我和駕車搭檔Michael Bettencourt想找出Turbo S究 竟可以開得多快,於是在無上限高速公路作實地測試。我 們直接駛向左,走外圍,在快線行車,並試圖把車開至不 能再加速的地步。我們曾超越時速265公里,但由於前面 有一輛車正以時速約225公里「爬行」,為免與它碰撞,我 們惟有減速。事實上,在我們放棄探索極速紀錄當刻,它 仍在毫不費力地加速。 不過,要進出這輛車並不容易。與所有跑車一樣, 它的外型低矮,約4.5呎高(Turbo S有4.52呎,而Turbo則 稍高一點點,有4.53呎) 。我可以擠進前座位,但沒有打 算嘗試鑽進後座,因為車頂線向下傾斜,後座的高度空間 很小。 然而,一旦進入了前面的座位,即體驗到它真的很 舒服。除了轉動方向盤駕車之外,還可以在方向盤上進行 很多操作(如調高收音機的音量、選取駕駛模式等等) 。儀 表板則從司機位伸展至乘客的座位前,而周圍有很多安全 氣囊,以防萬一出現的意外。

My driving partner, Michael Bettencourt, and I were keen to check out a couple of things about that Porsche. For instance, how fast would it really go? We were on a no-speed-limit section of the Autobahn, so we went directly to the left, outside, fast lane and tried to get to the point where the Turbo S could go no faster. We passed 265 km/h, but then Bettencourt had to slow down because somebody was crawling along in our lane at about 225. But the car was still accelerating effortlessly when we had to abandon our land speedrecord attempt. For anyone worried about personal mobility issues, this car is not exactly easy to get in or out of. It is a lowslung sports car (the Turbo S is 1,378mm high; the Turbo is 1,381mm), measuring about 4.5 feet high. I was able to squeeze into the front seat, but I didn’t even try to squeeze into the back as the roofline slants downward. Once inside, the car is really comfortable, almost cocoon like. And the dash spreads across the entire front of the car from the driver’s side to the passenger’s. And there are plenty of airbags in case anything goes wrong.


這不是說Taycan全無缺點,若真的要在雞蛋裡挑 骨頭的話,我就發現了一點點。在儀表板之下有一個 10.9吋的資訊娛樂顯示屏伸延至中控台,駕駛者如我 般,若伸手觸摸顯示屏,例如轉電台,就很容易會掃到 顯示屏,把暖氣或空調開啟了。這確是有點討厭,保時 捷應該留意一下。 保時捷表示Taycan是首部支援800伏特電壓(大部 分電動車採用400伏特電壓)的量產車,大大縮短了充電 時間。我們所試駕的跑車只需22分鐘便能充滿電。它所 搭載的鋰離子電池總容量為93.4kWh,供應電力給兩個 分別設在前後軸的電動引擎,並採用安裝在後軸的兩速 波箱,驅動所有四個車輪,加速和控制車速。 廠方稱Taycan打開了保時捷史上新的一章,特別 是在性能、續航力和技術方面,並強調Taycan既是一輛 不折不扣的跑車,同是也可以作日常代步。 我非常喜歡這台車,但就懷疑它的可行性,因為目 前的基建仍未能配合。不過我深信這個日子毫無疑問一 定會降臨。 兩款保時捷Taycan,Turbo S和Turbo現接受訂 購,售價分別是213,900元和173,900 元。

This may be nitpicking, but a 10.9-inch infotainment display comes down from the dash onto the centre console. I reached to touch the screen to change the radio station and accidentally brushed the infotainment display, which turned on one of the heating/air conditioning fans in the process. This is more annoying than anything else, but it is something Porsche should look at. Porsche says the Taycan is the first production vehicle with a system voltage of 800 volts (most electric cars have 400). This significantly reduces the charging period—ours took about 22 minutes to charge up. The overall capacity of the lithium ion battery is 93.4 kWh. It supplies power to two electric motors, one on the front axle and the other on the rear. A two-speed transmission is used on the rear axle to drive all four wheels plus drive the car’s acceleration and speed. The company is calling this a new chapter in its history with a focus on performance, range and technology. They say the Taycan is a pure sports car that can also be driven every day. I am crazy about this car, but is it feasible? Maybe not quite because the infrastructure is just not there yet. But it will come. There is no doubt about that. The Porsche Taycan Turbo S and Porsche Taycan Turbo are now available to order with pricing starting at $213,900 and $173,900, respectively.

The World’s smallesT sTabilized Camera insta360 Go good to capture every-day life and share precious moments Story | PC Market

2019


Insta360的新相機GO,機身一如官方所言可「藏在拇指後」,只得49.4× 21.4毫米,重量更只得18.3克,體積比GoPro、OSMO Action等action camera 還要小。但Insta360卻不想將GO列入純action camera類別,反而以「The world’s smallest stabilized camera」來形容GO,新機重點是一部「內置穩定器 功能的相機」,所以也適合拍攝運動、移動畫面的影片。

配件大大提升拍攝彈性 測試時發覺GO拍片時有超高穩定性,全因其內置了六軸陀螺儀的 FlowState防震技術,即使高速移動中,仍能拍到穩定的畫面;另外,由於機身 有磁石,可以配合多種配件如附送的磁吸頸繩、轉向底座、磁吸機夾及磁吸面 板等使用,可將GO穩妥地安裝在不同位置進行拍攝,適用於多種情形。 受惠於FlowState技術,使用磁石作磁吸時,機身橫或直放皆可,因GO會 根據重力自動判斷鏡頭的上下左右,不用擔心出現畫面倒轉、直度轉橫度等問 題,方便後製。 它內置了一個3,040×3,040高解像度的感光元件,屬1:1的正方形規格, 方便用戶「先拍後製」 ;亦可透過專用app《Insta360Go》後製裁出16:9、9:16或 4:3比例的內容,適合將影片或相片分享至不同尺寸要求的社交平台。 GO亦不是全無弱點,由於感光元件較細,拍出的影像不算銳利,四角也 有明顯變形及模糊情況,若裁至16:9比例,會有裁走四角的問題;但作為一般 用作社交平台分享,或作日常生活的記錄而言,畫質是絕對可接受。對於只想 輕鬆分享最精彩片段的用戶,會是個不錯的選擇。

The latest Insta360 GO is the Ant-Man of cameras. Weighing a mere 18.3 grams (0.65 ounces) in 49.4mm × 21.4mm, it is even smaller than other action cameras such as GoPro or OSMO Action. That said, Insta360 GO prefers to be the “world’s smallest stabilized camera” and not just a tiny wearable camera. It features Insta360’s signature FlowState stabilization to best capture sports and motion related images and videos.

NeW FeATureS PrOvIde FlexIbIlITy during our test, Insta360 GO’s six-axis gyroscope built-in FlowState antishock technology delivers superior stability that exceeds our expectation. We were able to capture solid frames even in high speed situations. In addition, due to its magnetic body, it works amazingly well with a variety of accessories that came with the package, including a magnetic necklace, steering base, magnetic clip and panel for a variety of shooting situations. Thanks to the powerful FlowState technology, the lens position of Insta360 GO can go in any direction as it will automatically adjust the settings based on gravity. This feature provides peace of mind for post-editing, especially for amateur users. Insta360 GO has a built-in 3,040 ×3,040 high-resolution sensor in a 1:1 square, which makes it convenient for post-editing. It can also be converted into 16:9, 9:16 or 4:3 frame sizes through the exclusive Insta360Go app. The output makes it easy to accommodate different resolution ratio content and requirements on various social media platforms. due to the light sensor’s size limitation, images taken from Insta360 GO are not quite sharp enough; edges and corners are visually deformed or blurry. There are also issues while trimming in the 16:9 aspect ratio. However, if the aim is to capture every-day life and share precious moments on social media, the image quality is absolutely acceptable. For those who want to easily share the most exciting clips, Insta360 GO is an optimal choice.
