恭賀新禧!

Happy Chinese New Year     又一次感謝您支持新一期的《eliteGen》,每年一/二 月號都附有特別意義,除了是新一年出版的首期,亦因 為它覆蓋了兩個重要節日—情人節及農曆新年。     我 們 的 編 輯 團 隊 , 巡 遍 實 體 及 網 店 , 由 H o l t  Renfrew、Nordstrom及Saks Fifth Avenue的禮品目錄、 Chanel、LV、D&G及Saint  Laurent等品牌新年特定產 品、到因張曼玉在康城配戴廣受注目的Qeelin紅瑪瑙葫 蘆耳環……六頁的禮品特集,可說是搜羅了世界不同 地方的驚喜之作,奪取芳心;當然,今期的驚喜不止於 此,除了各式各樣名錶、珠寶及衣裳外,Gucci賞心悅目 的全新香水系列,「煉金術花園」內14種香氣各配上個性 化的瓶子,足以教人在情人節如沐愛河。     當然我們不會重女輕男,試問你身邊喜歡收集得獎 名錶的男士,又哪能抗拒一個能自動搖晃充電及有夾萬 功能的錶櫃?用鑲上珠寶的墨水筆簽署下一宗大生意, 再從一個價值44萬多的防潮盒中取出一支雪茄慶祝;若 你身邊是一位重視外型的男士,也可以參考香港紳士帽 專家教路,如何選購及保養紳士帽。     2019是亥豬年,豬是一種溫馴及象徵好運的動物, 代表著開開心心、無憂無慮、幸運及富足,就把這種開 心及幸運演變為我們選出的「豬題」飾品,例如Prada以 馳名Saffiano皮合子包裝的麻雀牌,上面的字樣以金屬刻 製,開枱時手風應該會更加順。     今年就讓自己及身邊人,以歡樂及笑聲作為新一年 的好開始吧!     祝大家2019開開心心!

Thank you for picking up our latest issue of eliteGen. The January and February double issue is always a special one. Not only is it the first book of the year, it also covers two very important celebrations: Valentine’s Day and, of course, Chinese New Year. Our editorial team worked diligently to bring you the best inspiration for gift-giving. They scoured the globe (online and on foot) for the most exquisite and unique objects. Suffice it to say that our six-page shopping guide may come close to rivalling the famed Neiman Marcus holiday catalogue. A pair of rose gold and red agate wulu earrings from Qeelin, a brand made famous by actress Maggie Cheung, is sure to win any lady’s heart; or shower her with love by presenting the complete garden from Gucci’s new luxury perfume collection, featuring 14 heavenly scents. And we didn’t forget the gents. What man in your life wouldn’t delight in a new watch safe to house his prized collection of timepieces? How about a bejeweled Visconti pen for signing the next big deal, or indulge in a celebratory puff from a cigar straight out of his new $440,000+ humidor? But if you are only looking to protect his coiffure from wintry elements, make sure to check out our gentleman’s hat guide, with expert advice from Hong Kong’s foremost hat man. The year 2019 rings in the year of the Pig, which is a mild and lucky animal, representing carefree fun, good fortune and wealth. Channel that joie de vivre and good fortune with our selection of pig-themed gift items. Why not test your luck with Prada’s mahjong pieces wrapped in Saffiano calf leather with metal lettering. Just setting up the game table will be half the fun. So, go ahead and indulge yourself and your loved ones, and start the New Year off with lots of joy and plenty of laughter. Here’s to good times for 2019. Sincerely,

Leslie Yip Associate Publisher facebook.com/LeslieYip Twitter & Instagram: leslieyip0911

Inspired by the enchanting world of alchemy, Gucci reimagines the perfume-making process with seven hero elements, each with its own mystical setting: the Rose becomes a song, the Violet is a virgin and the Iris represents tears. Oud is the voice of a snake, Amber is the eye of the tiger, the Mimosa is winter’s spring, while Wood is the end of summer. The poetic Arthurian descriptions are meant to trigger one’s imagination, so a scent is not just a smell, but a multi-sensorial experience. In addition to the seven eaux de parfum, there are four precious oils, three acque profumate (perfumed water) and a candle in the collection. Your first encounter with the 14-scent line-up may at first unleash some latent decidophobia, but as you explore each scent, you will feel an unexplainable affinity for certain ones, and a desire to mix and layer them. This is where the magic of alchemy happens. My preferred base is the Mimosa eau de parfum, but to make it truly my own, I layer Violet oil and Lavender water for day, Rose and Wood oils for night. “The oils and acque profumate create individual statements,” says Alberto Morillas, Gucci’s perfumer. “Personalize your beloved scent with an oil or a floral water to build a unique sillage.


三款花露水可作淡香水使用。花露 水配以精心設計的白色塗漆玻璃 瓶,點綴極富女性魅力且充滿奇思 妙想的粉紅玫瑰圖案。香氣包括: 「冬之旋律」–柏樹、「月之小夜曲」– –木。 薰衣草及 「褪色之秋」 The acque profumate can be used as an eau de toilette. They come in an ultra-feminine white lacquered glass bottle decorated with a whimsical pink rose print. Available scents: A Winter Melody- Cypress, Moonlight Serenade-Lavender and Fading Autumn-Bois Moderne. 150ml | $268

四款香氛精油可說是整個系列入的 瑰寶:「被遺忘的玫瑰」–玫瑰、「夜 之細語」–沉香、「哀之頌」–木及「蘭 之潔」–紫羅蘭。玻璃瓶配上鼠尾草 綠的色調,瓶內精緻的玻璃滴管若 隱若現。 The crown jewels of the collection are the four precious oils: A Forgotten Rose-Rose, A Nocturnal Whisper-Oud, Ode on MelancholyBois Moderne and The Violet KissViolet. The sage green-toned, lacquered glass bottles hide a touche oreille, a glass pipette style applicator. 15ml | $458

Gucci香氛師Alberto Morillas表示:「香油與花露水是個性宣言, 透過組合來調配出心愛的香氣,創造出獨一無二的專屬香跡。這個系 列中的每款香氛精油和香氛花水均可以隨心配搭使用,大膽嘗試,發 掘出自己的最愛,恰似煉金術士找到他的黃金配方。」 The Alchemist’ s Garden吸引的不單只香氣,更在於其精心設計 的瓶身。香氛瓶的設計靈感源自古老藥劑師木架上的藥瓶,把往昔浪 漫完美詮釋。七款香氛分別置於配有瓶塞的塗漆玻璃瓶中,再以金色 的字句、裝飾與動物符號點綴於瓶身之上。 系列中有5款香氛瓶均塗上白色,除了蛇之聲的瓶身為黑色, 而玫瑰之歌則被Gucci創作總監Alessandro Michele欽定為藍色。靈 感來自他回憶中曾在母親浴室中看到的玫瑰香氛顏色。Alessandro Michele憶述:「這是一款令人安心的瑰麗香氣,時至今日仍能喚起美 麗的嚮往,這正是醉人花香創造出的美好。」 Gucci的奢華系列—The Alchemist’ s Garden,1月10日起在網 上公開發售。另會於Holt Renfrew獨家發售,多倫多開售日期為2月1 日,溫哥華則為2月8日。

“Each oil or floral water of the collection can be layered with each eau de parfum. Just play with the scent to find your favourite, as an alchemist would work to find the gold formula.” The Alchemist’s Garden tempts you not just with its scents, but by its bottles. Inspired by ancient apothecaries, the perfume containers evoke the romance of bygone eras. Gold lettering, decoration and animal symbols lend a handcrafted look to the lacquered glass bottles. You may note that all the flacons are white, except for The Voice of the Snake, which is black, and A Song for the Rose, in a shade of blue chosen by Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele. The blue bottle pays homage to one he saw in his mother’s bathroom that was filled with the essence of roses. Says Michele: “It was a beautiful scent, an enveloping, reassuring perfume that today brings me back to the idea that the flower of this scent creates beauty.” The Gucci Luxury Collection: The Alchemist’s Garden is available online in January 2019, and exclusively at Holt Renfrew in Toronto and Vancouver in February.

紳士帽法則

Hat tricks

They may not be for everyone, but those who dare deserve a special place among sophisticates Story | Simon Au & Timothy Lo Photography | Bowy Chan 並不是人人戴紳士帽都好看得體,箇中不但有相當學問,更 存在一條男孩與男人的界線,成功跨過的話,恭喜,你已經是一 位優雅成熟的男士。 帽子早在遠古時代已經誕生,當初只是運用布巾纏繞頭部, 是單純的保護功能;直至中古世紀,教庭頒布法令要人民將頭髮 遮蓋起來,才漸漸出現簡單的帽型。作為公認擁有最多紳士的英 國,據說當時的英國紳士因為走進室內、與人打招呼,甚至是看 到淑女都要脫帽,往往一天至少穿脫帽子達三十次。遂出現上 方擁有縱向褶痕的Fedora紳士帽,方便男士脫帽。後來Michael Jackson將之融入潮流,逐漸成為時尚分子的日常生活配搭單品。 其實紳士帽沒有指定的類型,更多是一個派系,就像電影《北 非諜影》的Fedora帽、《教父》的Homburg帽;《霹靂神探》的Pork Pie帽,又或者是福爾摩斯般的Bowler帽等等,都是不同變奏的紳 士帽,配合對生活有要求的男士。紳士帽是很多男士時裝品牌的 永恆單品,例如Paul Smith棗紅色的Fedora帽,底部以深紫色作為 配襯,在黑白灰的單調冬日搭配之中,成為亮眼的焦點;又如成 立於2010年的佛羅倫斯帽子品牌SuperDuper,以人手編織外圍的 緞帶,同樣搶眼。 46

Headwear has been around since time immemorial. It started off with a head scarf worn mainly for protection. In the Middle Ages, the church decreed that everyone should cover their hair and a rudimentary form of hat was born. In England, gentlemen would doff their hats as a greeting, or in the presence of ladies. Fedoras, with a crease at the crown, became very popular at the turn of the 20thcentury—Michael Jackson would even make it a signature part of his wardrobe. Hats of varying styles have been prominent in a number of high-profile movies, including the fedora in Casablanca, the homburg in The Godfather, the pork pie in The French Connection and the bowler on Sherlock Holmes. Gentleman hats have a permanent place in certain menswear brands. Paul Smith’s burgundy fedora, with a deep purple lining, makes for a colourful accent in monochrome winter ensembles. The SuperDuper hat, created in Florence, Italy, captures attention with hand-woven trim details. Hats from Hermès, Dsquared2, Anderson & Sheppard and Brian Dales are renowned for their understated simplicity and stylishness. Agnès b. has introduced a series of hats in its “Dare Sirs!” collection.

紳士會戴的五種帽

Five classics

男士們,不要再見到有帽緣 (Brim) 的圓帽便大叫 「紳士帽」 了,形 狀、設計、物料不同的帽,各有分門別類和配搭方式,買帽子時 千萬不要再似懂非懂了。

Let’s set the record straight. Not all hats with brims are gentleman hats. Learn to tell them apart by their shape, design and material.

FEDORA

PANAMA

TRILBY

最常見且最多被稱為 「紳士帽」 的設計。帽緣 較寬,前端微微向下翻用作遮陽,帽冠中間 凹陷,兩邊亦有壓痕,方便男士脫帽。除了 正經八百的西裝襯衫,以Fedora配連身工服 和恤衫領帶,也是型格的另類穿搭。

與Fedora形狀相似,卻以厄瓜多爾生產的巴 拿馬草 (toquilla straw) 編織而成,更因編織方 法別樹一格而被聯合國教科文組織於2012年 納入非物質世界文化遺產。Panama Hat的草 織材質予人休閒感,最適合隨性不羈的打扮 風格。

與Fedora非常相像,只是Trilby的帽緣比前者 更短更窄,看來也更休閒帥氣,少了幾分正 式和拘謹。像圖中男士以橘色Trilby配toneon-tone簡化海軍長外套和西褲皮鞋,整體造 型更有玩味。

Touted as the most common type of hat for a guy, fedoras tend to have a wider brim and the front tips downwards to serve as a visor. The crown is indented and pinched near the front on both sides as a handle for taking it off. Fedoras, traditionally made of wool, look equally good with tailored shirts and suits, or with overalls, shirts and ties.

Panamas are shaped like the fedora, but instead of wool, are woven with toquilla straw. The unique weaving style was listed as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2012. Its laid-back style makes it a great accessory for the carefree individual.

A trilby looks similar to the fedora, except for a narrower brim. It also looks more casual and chic. An orange Trilby, paired with a naval coat, pants and shoes of the same tone, makes for a fun look.

紳士堅持的是一份低調的品味,Hermès、Dsquared2、英國的 Anderson & Sheppard以及意大利奢華品牌Brian Dales的紳士帽便 以最簡約的款式取勝。值得一提的是Agnès b.,今季男裝以「Dare Sirs!」為主題推出多款紳士帽,當中以表面平平無奇,實則後端是微 微凹上的Fedora帽最為突破,為現代紳士添上不失俗套的玩味。

玩味帽子戲法 香港帽子品牌Tasteless Hat Co.主理人Yuman認為紳士帽與品 味無關,因帽子是配飾,如何詮釋風格全由戴帽之人一手掌握。 Yuman的「帽痴生涯」源於旅行,每次到歐美國家都必定選購不 同地方的紳士帽,之後甚至開了一家帽子專門店。「帽子其實是很有 意思的配飾,隨著不同的季節和場景,物料和形狀也會有所不同,美 感之餘也重實用性。」然而紳士帽在男裝市場並不是主流單品,產品 的價格和質素也良莠不齊:「要不你在Fast Fashion店舖中看到低價 帽子,品質欠佳,令人不感興趣;要不是在高級時裝店中看到天價帽 子,設計雖好卻買不起。」 他認為紳士帽並不一定要配西裝。「你把黑色的Stone系列圓帽 配整套Rick Owens,便能營造Dark Edgy風格;而拿草帽配Levi’ s牛 仔褸牛仔褲,或者藍領工服裝,又是另一種效果。帽子只是帽子,沒 有既定風格和品味,只有你才能為自己決定。」

Fun HAT TrIckS Yuman ng, founder/designer of the Hong kong-based Tasteless Hat co., thinks hats are not about taste. rather, they are accessories and it is up to the wearer to define his style. “Hats are meaningful accessories,” he says. “They have a different feel in different seasons, occasions, materials and shapes. They look good and are also practical.” ng also points out that gentleman hats can vary in price and quality: “You either find cheap and unremarkable hats in fast-fashion shops, or you get exorbitantly priced hats in up-market fashion stores.” And he doesn’t think hats necessarily have to be worn with suits. Says ng: “Pairing a black round hat from the Stone collection with a rick Owens ensemble has a dark edgy feel. Whereas a straw hat with a pair of jeans and a denim jacket has a totally different effect. Hats are hats, and there is no set style or trend about it. It’s entirely up to each individual.”

紳士帽的收藏和保養

BOWLER

PORK PIE

較為復古的圓帽款式,帽冠沒有壓痕和凹 凸位置,帽緣兩側微微翹起。Bowler質地堅 挺,皆因這本是英國紳士騎馬時戴的帽子, 避免頭部被樹枝刮到。前英國首相邱吉爾酷 愛此帽,令Bowler變相成為白領階層的配飾 代表。

Pork Pie圓滾滾的帽緣和帽冠沒有任何壓痕 和凹凸,形狀酷似英國豬肉批。這款帽早在 1830年代已經出現,但直到二十年代才漸漸 成為男裝單品之一。至近數十年,Pork Pie因 深受The Beatles、Mick Jagger等英倫搖滾歌 手喜愛,成為BritRock的時尚象徵。

The bowler is a round hat with no dents or creases on the crown. The brim curls up on either side. A bowler is quite stiff and was originally worn by English gents when riding to protect the head from being scratched by tree branches. The bowler was synonymous with former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and became a classic accessory for white-collar folk.

Pork pies have brims and crowns, but no dents or creases. They emerged in the 1830s, named after the traditional English pork pie, and became a part of men’s fashion in the 1920s. In recent decades, the pork pie has being favoured by British rock icons, such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger.

收藏帽子時,Yuman說最好用 店裡提供的盒子裝好並平放, 以免變形;若草帽變了形,可 先略略將帽子沾濕,塑好形狀 後吹乾收藏,便能回復如初。 若遇上天氣潮濕,收藏時可於 盒子內放置防潮珠,避免濕氣 過重,導致帽子變形變色。

Storing your hats

除了經典的絲帶和羽毛,Yuman新系列 的帽子上釘了一些古著襟針,並專門在 阿姆斯特丹訂製了一些裝大麻煙的塑料 管,為帽子添上充滿幽默的點綴。 Other than laces and feathers, Ng’s new collections are adorned with vintage pins and custom-made containers (pictured) for joints from Amsterdam to add a touch of humour.

To keep hats in good shape, Ng recommends storing them in their boxes to avoid being squashed. If a straw hat loses its shape, spray on water, reshape it and then blow dry before putting it away. In humid weather, it’s best to put dehumidifying agents in the box to prevent the hats from discolouration and deterioration.

再次踩油

Start your engines Dunhill, once an automobile parts maker, is on the fast track to the fashion finish line Story | 冰汪 之前在Burberry負責男裝接近十年的Mark Weston, 今個秋冬是他入主Dunhill後發表的第二個系列,更隆而重 之將秋冬時裝騷搬到巴黎,不但有派頭,更有睇頭。 Dunhill是英倫百年金漆招牌,以汽車配件起家,由 車頭燈到皮革座位到野餐箱,總之有關汽車的東西,除了 一架車,品牌都曾經生產。擁有強勁汽車DNA,加上喜歡 觀察男士打扮,Mark Weston在第二季終於發力,直衝現 代紳士modern gentleman的終點。同樣走休閒及運動方 向,但他在設計風格扭軚之餘,保留了品牌傳統tailoring 及汽車元素,正式鎖定系列路線。 第一套出場的衣服,是一個hybrid look,外面披著深 藍色大褸,裡面是一套由西裝格仔布做的track suit,刻意 以selvedge布邊作圖案,最底層是一件粉藍色條子恤衫, 充滿layering的配搭,儼然脫胎換骨般。接下來,他風馳 電掣將英倫紳士與賽車元素無縫混合,其中一件很烈火戰 車的biker jacket,沒有火紅,換上深藍色皮革,衫身是巨 型logo,男人味澎湃。

Mark Weston was in charge of menswear at Burberry for close to 10 years before joining Dunhill. The Fall/Winter 18/19 collection is his second for the elite British brand and already he has moved the show to Paris for increased visibility. Dunhill has an intriguing century-old history. The company began by manufacturing automobile parts—from headlights to leather seats. With its strong automotive roots, and keen observation of menwear trends, Weston has his engine revving with a clear path to the modern gentleman’s finish line. Even though he’s in a very competitive field, Weston has been able to retain the brand’s traditional tailoring and automobile elements, while forging a new course for Dunhill. The first outfit out of the gate is a hybrid layering: a navy blue overcoat with a plaid track suit. The next piece combines the English gentleman with a racing champion and features a Chariots of Fire-style biker jacket with an over-sized logo.

Runway: DunHILL 現場看騷時,見到幾位男模紛紛穿上一件半樽領 針織衫,有黑亦有白,衣領縫上dunhill logo,這個長 長小楷的標誌,官方名稱是longtail logo。最初還以 為這純粹是食logo熱的設計,直至衣服在官網上架, 發現caption寫上racing jersey,才恍然想起這不就是 賽車手最底層的防火底衫!如此這般,Mark Weston 便將潮流與品牌傳統二合一,玩潮流可以千變萬化, 他的玩法就很聰明。根據汽車與賽車的遊戲藍圖,他 設計了少量汽車梳化inspired的產品,譬如那件羊皮 jacket,衣服上的縫線與夾棉,相信是由車廂中的梳 化變身而成吧。相同玩法,他又製作了一系列皮具產 品,包括tote bag及clutch bag,由於皮具形狀四正 又實淨,視覺上比衣服更酷似汽車配件。 值得一提是波鞋定價非常吸引,550美元已經買 到一對天橋款式,極具競爭力,策略似乎是以鞋借 力,希望男士再次踏上這條登喜路。

At Dunhill the logo also pays homage to its racing roots, including shirts modeled after the fireproof racing jerseys worn by auto racers under their jumpsuits. In this way, Weston has successfully joined trendiness with tradition, and cleverly played on a new trend. In keeping with this automotive orientation, he has designed a few pieces inspired by car interiors. For example, the lambskin bomber jacket has thread lines and quilting that resembles car seats. Along those lines, he’s also produced leather totes and clutch bags that are block-shaped and sturdy, looking more like automobile parts than clothing. Dunhill’s sports shoes also make an impression, attractively priced at US$550. Weston’s strategy may be to use the shoes to help men follow in the footsteps of Dunhill again.

陳瀅在《跳躍生命線》中飾演個性爽朗、熱愛助人的急症室護士。「我的主要對手是 飾演我嫲嫲的羅蘭姐,想帶出『時間很寶貴,要愛惜身邊人』的訊息,不要覺得一切都 是理所當然的。有時當你愈愛一個人,便愈難表達自己的感情。現在有些小朋友都是 由嫲嫲或婆婆撫養,但長大後卻未必懂得去照顧老人家,也不懂得生死別離。」 現實生活中,她的生父於她未出世時因病去世,母親改嫁後,一家人長時間分隔 異地,陳瀅正是由婆婆在加拿大一手湊大。「今次角色跟我自己很相似,我是跟婆婆相 依為命的,所以拍攝時十分投入,有時甚至抽離不了,也加入許多自己的元素,令角 色更立體和生活化。」 首次跟羅蘭姐合作,陳瀅說她獲益良多,「她令我很快便有家人的感覺,覺得她就 是我嫲嫲,十分神奇,我真的要好好學習她能夠令對手入戲的優點。還有就是她的耐 性和專業精神,雖然她已80多歲,但即使通告去到凌晨一、兩點,也沒有半句怨言, 只會靜待埋位,反而有時是我會看不過眼,跟導演提出不如先拍羅蘭姐的戲份,讓她 可以早點回家休息。」 拍完此劇之後,她放了三個月長假,回溫哥華探望患腎病的婆婆,同時也反思自 己是否能夠成為更好的孫女、更好的朋友,善待身邊的人。 陳瀅和外婆感情極佳,小時候外婆最緊張她有否學壞,經常著她早點回家。現在 她每次返加拿大,都會給錢外婆買東西吃。「當我賺到多一點錢,有次外婆到香港,我 主動提出買商務客位機票給她,她多番拒絕,表示坐經濟客位好了,但我希望她坐得 舒服點,堅持買給她。」

The series finale of Life on the Line has aired. And Chan Ying counts her lucky stars for being part of the cast of this successful show, which this year was the second highest rated TVB drama in viewership numbers. That kind of exposure ensured that Chan’s star would continue to rise. But as art can sometime imitate life, Chan, who played an ER nurse on the show, was often on screen opposite Law Lan, who played her grandmother. In reality, Chan’s father died before she was born. After her mother remarried, the family spent long periods of time being apart. So Chan was brought up by her grandmother in Canada. “I wanted to bring out the message that time is valuable, and that you must care about those around you, and not take anything for granted,” Chan says of the message she had hoped to get across while playing her part in the show. “I was very close to my grandmother, so I was very much into the role during filming. Sometimes it was difficult to pull back. I also added a lot of my own elements to make the role more vivid and real.” Chan says she benefitted a lot from working with Law. “She made me feel like a part of her family very quickly. She had the magic to make me feel like she was my own grandma. Her patience and professionalism are also impressive. She is already more than 80 years old, yet she never complained when a shoot lasted until midnight or later. She would always quietly take her position. Sometimes I would suggest to the director that he film her part first, so she could get home earlier to rest.” ELITEGEN

雖然家裏經濟條件佳,有指陳瀅媽媽的第二任丈夫在中國從事房地 產生意,有商場大王之稱,在廣州有一幢6層樓高的商場。但陳瀅很早 已自力更生,即使當時法例規定滿16歲才可工作,她13歲便到朋友父母 開設的珍珠奶茶店工作,賺取比最低時薪要低的6加元;升讀大學後, 向政府申請學生貸款應付學費,閒時便做兼職賺取生活費,做過時裝店 售貨員,以及牙醫診所的「姑娘」。 Knit turtleneck, skirt and patterned shirt, All Chloé

富生意頭腦 陳瀅是卑詩大學工商管理系學士,早前和兩位好友合資,自創品牌 onliest & co,以網店形式經營,主打個人化首飾及生活用品。她負責市 場推廣,拍檔分別負責營運和網站。 她選擇於自己參演的劇集熱播期間,戴著有自己英文名字 「Jeannie」的頸鍊拍照,再上載到個人IG,並加入公司的標籤。網民看 到照片後,爭相查詢如何購買,反應極之熱烈,結果公司於三個星期內 極速回本,首月便已開始有錢賺。除了首飾,Onliest & Co也有推出手 機殼、杯和水壼等,推出逾70種產品,當中約10種可作個人化選擇, 其他則是原創設計,主要出自陳瀅的手筆。「我負責發揮創意,構思不 同意念,以及推廣策略;拍檔則負責執行,例如我要設計這樣那樣的產 品,她就去物色廠商。」 陳瀅最初也沒向外間說那是自己有份的品牌,「因為『衰了』也不會 有人知道,不過現時愈做愈好,成績超乎想像,令我可以很驕傲地對人 說這是我做的。」她的公司現時聘用五名全職員工,由於未有辦公室,全 部需在家工作,她希望明年能夠租用較佳的辦公室,更期待有一天能夠 開設實體店舖。 「我們三人合作以來雖爭吵過一次,但其他時候都很順利。這也是 我當演員後帶來的好處,令我懂得怎去表達自己,吵架有時是源於你不 去表達,其實多溝通便能減少誤會。跟任何人合作都會有困難,就視乎 你怎去解決問題。」

When the series concluded, Chan took a three-month vacation and returned to Vancouver to see her grandmother, who was by that time suffering from kidney disease. She also took time to reflect on whether she could become a better granddaughter and a better friend. “Once I made a little money, I offered to buy a business-class plane ticket for my grandmother to come to Hong Kong. She refused, saying that taking economy class was just fine. But I wanted her to be more comfortable and insisted on buying her the ticket.” Chan grew up in a well-to-do family. Her stepfather is a successful real estate mogul, with a six-storey shopping complex in Guangzhou. Even so, she developed a work ethic at an early age. She was already working at a boba tea shop owned by a friend’s parents at age 13, earning $6 an hour. And while in college, Chan racked up student loans, so she worked a variety of part-time jobs, including clothing stores and assisting at a dental office.

A MInd fOR BuSInESS After earning a bachelor’s degree from the university of British Columbia, she partnered with two friends to create Onliest & Co., an online store that sells personalized jewellery. Chan was in charge of marketing, her partners ran the operation and the website. To promote the company, Chan wore a necklace with her name “Jeannie” on her shows. She then uploaded the images to her Instagram page, adding the company’s logo. Her fans responded enthusiastically, asking how they could buy one. Within a month, the company had turned a profit. In addition to jewellery, Onliest & Co sells smartphone covers and water bottles. In all, it offers more than 70 products, 10 of which can be personalized, mostly by Chan herself. “I am in charge of the creative side of the business,” she says. “I come up with different concepts and also the marketing strategy. My partners are responsible for execution. for example, if I design a product, they will shop around for a manufacturer.”

Cover girl 我不是女神 陳瀅說未來最想參與動作片。「許多人以為我很 女仔、很軟弱,但其實我很粗魯、很男仔頭,小時候 還學過跆拳道,有點武術底子。」被冠以「宅男女神」之 名,她卻表示:「女神應該是很優雅的,不過好些跟 我合作過的演員都跟我說原來我是那樣粗魯和貼地的 人。之前有戲份是我挖鼻後,再抹到別人身上,這是 我自己提議增加的,為何會想得出來?因為我本身就 是這樣的人,這麼核突的人怎會是女神?」 她心目中的真女神是舒淇,「我喜歡她夠自然、 真實和勤力,又肯素顏示人,是很好的演員。」 至於男神是誰?她秒答:「古天樂!我很欣賞他 的專業精神,對香港電影付出很多。而且他暗地裏幫 助了許多慈善機構,不求人知。」

At first, Chan was reticent to let it be known she was a partner in the company, saying, “If the company doesn’t make it, no one would know. But now it is getting better and better, and the results are beyond my imagination, so I can proudly tell people that it is my work.” The company now has five full-time staff, who all work from home, but Chan hopes to open an office soon and an actual retail store someday.

nOT A GOddESS What’s next for Chan? She now hopes to land a role in an action film in order to dispel the myth that she is so sweet and feminine. She actually admits to lacking in manners and to being quite the tomboy. Says Chan: “When I was little, I took taekwondo; so I do have a martial arts background.” no surprise, Chan feels a bit uneasy when people bestow titles on her like The Goddess of Young Men. Her response? “A goddess should be elegant, but many of the actors who have worked with me say that I am actually very direct and down-to-earth. I was supposed to pick my nose in a scene once and put it on someone else. That was my suggestion. Why would I think to

people think I am very confident. “ Many But there was a time during which I was not used to the attention I was getting. I didn’t want to go out. I was afraid of others looking at me.

尋找滿足感 2012正式出道至今,陳瀅認為入行以來最大得 著是學會跟別人溝通,「年紀輕的時候,有點自我中 心,有時不想聆聽對方說話,便會自顧自地玩電話。 演戲多了,時常要跟別人溝通,要表達自己的感覺。 而且演了那麼多不同的角色,每個角色都帶給我新的 想法。」 凡事總有兩面,她說自己近年緊張和焦慮了許 多。「不少人覺得我很自信,但有段時間很不適應別 人對我那麼關注,令我不想上街,不想去太多陌生 人的地方,也害怕別人的目光,有時要看醫生食藥。 我的解決方法是盡量少出街,連購物也是上網,外出 感覺很緊張的時候,便按手機逃避。另外我也很想再 學跆拳道,可以發洩一下,而且考上黑帶會很有成功 感,不過要待我工作沒那麼忙碌的時候吧!」 身邊好姊妹如王敏奕和陳嘉寶都成雙成對,甚 至成家立室,單身了一段日子的陳瀅坦言自己亦想拍 拖,「之前想專注事業,投入工作。但近來每次出席 朋友聚會,見到她們都甜蜜溫馨,會覺得自己有所欠 缺。不過隨緣吧,我也不太心急,合適的人自然會出 現的。」她的擇偶條件是對方要夠勤力和細心,「而且 要體諒我的工作和脾氣,當我已經很忙碌時,會不想 交代自己究竟在哪裡、甚麼時候收工,不過有些男朋 友會在意為何你不跟我交代、不陪我食飯,所以我很 希望對方能給我多些私人時間。」

do that? Because that’s the kind of crass person that I am. I can’t possibly be considered a goddess.” for Chan, a real goddess worthy of the name is Shu Qi. “I like that she is natural, authentic and hard-working. She is also brave enough to appear in public without makeup. She is also a great actress.” As for a male counterpart, she singles out Louis Koo: “I admire his professionalism. He has given a lot to the movie industry in Hong Kong, and has also secretly helped many charitable organizations.”

fIndInG SATISfACTIOn Since her acting debut in 2012, Chan thinks the best thing she’s learned is how to communicate with others. “When I was younger, I was more selfcentred. I didn’t want to listen to others. After acting for a while, I learned to communicate with others and to express my own feelings. Having played so many different roles, I’ve learned new perspectives from each. “Many people think I am very confident. But there was a period of time during which I was not used to the attention I was getting. I didn’t want to go out. I was afraid of others looking at me.” Chan says she would like to take up taekwondo again, as a release, but, she says, “that will have to wait until I am less busy.” Her good friends, Venus Wong and Anjaylia Chan, have both found partners, but Chan remains single. However, she says she would like to date again. “Before, I was focused on career, and wanted to put all my energy into work. But lately, every time I get together with friends, I see them happy with their significant others. So I can’t help but feel that there is something missing in my life. “But you have to let things happen naturally. I am not too impatient. I know the right person will come. He must respect my work and my temper. When I’m busy, I don’t want to have to report where I am, when work is over, etc. I want someone who will give me my space, some private time.”

史上最複雜作品 So many parts, so much time Bulgari might just have the most complicated watch ever made Story | Ringo Chan

Bulgari早前在上海舉行發布會,展示品牌四大傑作—品牌自製最複雜的一枚 Octo腕錶;終極手藝的Serpenti Pallini;反映意大利lifestyle、農曆新年才推 出的豔紅LVCEA;以及採用不妥協設計、美豔得出神的女裝Divas' Dream; 直如一次pre Basel展覽。 At a recent press conference in Shanghai, Bulgari showcased four masterpieces: The Octo Grande, the Octo Monete, the Serpenti Pallini, the Divas’ Dream and the LVCEA. The brand is known for its uncompromising craftsmanship and luxury so any one of these would make the perfect Chinese New Year gift for that special someone who has everything.

OcTO Grande SOnnerie PerPeTual calendar 擁有12項功能的Octo腕錶,堪稱品牌自家製最複雜的作品。 有大、小自鳴、有四錘四簧西敏寺鐘聲、有三問、有陀飛輪、有 萬年曆、有月相、有動存顯示、有自鳴動存顯示、有鏤空機芯……這枚 擁有976件零件的BVL5037自動機芯,體積一點不厚,18K玫瑰金磨砂 Sand Blasted錶殼尺寸只有44mm;日常配戴亦可—如果你有錢又買得 到的話。 腕錶的錶盤布局有條不紊,12時位置有品牌logo及月相、1點半自 鳴動存顯示、3時位置有月份窗、4點半是走時能量顯示、6時盤兼具日 期及閏年指針、9時位置有星期窗,在透明錶底可看到陀飛輪。最後補 充,腕錶的貴金屬線重量僅及94.9克,且能防水30米。 (只此一枚,約售 $945,000)

With more complications than one can count on two hands, Octo is truly Bulgari’s most complicated watch. The list of 12 functions is impressive: grand et petit sonnerie, Westminster carillon striking on four gongs, minute repeater, tourbillion, perpetual calendar, phase and age of the moon phase, power reserve indications for the strike train and gong train, plus skeletonized calibre and more. There are 976 parts in the automatic mechanism, yet it doesn’t feel chunky. The 18-karat sandblasted rose gold case measures only 44 millimetres, which is a good size for daily use—that is, if you have the budget and good fortune to acquire it. The dial is neat, with the logo and moon phase at 12 o’clock, the strike indicator at 1:30, the month window at three o’clock, the power reserve indicator at 4:30, the date and leap year indicator at 6 o’clock, the day of the week window at 9 o’clock, and a see-through case back to reveal the tourbillon. Water resistant to 30 metres, the weight of the precious metal in this watch is just 94.9 grams. (One piece only, approx. $945,000.)

OCTO MONeTe 錢幣向來是羅馬人的設計好題材, Bulgari也樂於以此為創作繆思,套用於 Octo系列裡。 設計師把古羅馬錢幣直接化身腕錶 前蓋,把它翻開才看到鏤空了的錶盤,看 透了的BVL 268手動上鏈機芯,6時位置 的陀飛輪立刻躍然眼前。腕錶名為Octo Monete,具百多個切割面的錶殼鑲嵌了長 階梯型切割鑽石,散落於錶圈、錶側及錶 耳裡,跟18K玫瑰金材質互相輝映。腕錶 還能拆卸四側錶耳,摒棄了黑色鱷魚皮帶 後再繫上18K玫瑰金錶鏈,使它搖身一變 成為懷錶,更添懷舊典雅味道。

Coins, a popular source of inspiration for Roman designers, have been adopted by Bulgari for the Octo collection. An ancient Roman coin is applied to cover the see-through dial that reveals the intricacy of the hand-winding BVL 268 calibre. The tourbillon at 6 o’clock jumps out and grabs your attention. Named Octo Monete, its multi-faceted, 18-karat rose gold case is adorned with trapeze diamonds, scattered on the bezel, ring and lugs. The lugs can be detached, and the black alligator strap can be replaced by an 18-karat rose gold chain to turn it into a pocket watch for that vintage look.

Bulgari was among the first to introduce serpent-inspired jewellery. The latest delightful creations have combinations of diamonds with mother of pearl, or diamonds with malachite— both celebrating elegance in a different way. The white version, paired with a red alligator strap, is sophisticated and attention-grabbing, while the green version, matched with an alligator strap of the same tone, is arresting for an evening look. The quartz watch’s 37-mm case is in rose gold.

Originally built in 1907 as a garment factory, this building evolved into the Ce De Candy Company. In the mid-’90s, real estate development firm Harry Stinson converted it into a residential building, and appointed modern designer Johnson Chou to drive its interior design. Chou’s focus was to bring a simplistic, yet stylish, homey vibe to each unit. He has utilized a variety of luxury materials, including Italian statuario marble and exotic imported ebony. The original brick walls, now dressed in white paint, harmonize nicely with the authentic wood beams. The high ceilings of this two-storey loft feels expansive. Chou combined a number of elements, including ramps, stairs, platforms, steps and bridges, to create a layered look, similar to mountainous regions in a natural landscape. In addition, using ebony plaques throughout the unit produces a unique and unifying sense of space.

樓房中央最為矚目的木質螺旋樓梯能通往頂層,驟眼看來 就如一個巨大雀籠,又或是聯想成一棵樹的形狀。沿梯攀上,彷 彿由地面爬到樹頂,頓時進入另一片明亮開揚的空間。

The focal point belongs to the spiral wooden staircase in the centre of the unit—love at first sight. It is almost as if you’ve come across a huge birdcage, or even a tree trunk smack dab in the middle of the unit.

頂層的主臥室設有獨立浴缸、淋浴、衛生間、衣櫃和洗衣 區。由臥室延伸出的大型陽台,附設用餐及享受日光浴的區域, 能隨時欣賞享受市中心的壯麗景色,實在教人心曠神怡!

The loft features the master bedroom, along with an individual bathtub, shower, toilet, wardrobe and laundry—all in a separate area. There is also a dining/sunbathing strip adjacent to the bedroom with amazing views of the downtown core.

震不掉,熊本好酒!

Made in Japan

Kumamoto vintage untouched by quake Story | Ivan Wong 日本人的葡萄酒歷史始於明治時代,由第一家酒莊於山梨縣建成至今,雖只不過一百 數十年光景,但今天的日本葡萄酒也漸隨日本威士忌的揚威步調,在歐美地區均有不錯聲 譽。 提到日本葡萄酒產地,除了知名的山梨縣、長野縣、山形縣和北海道四大地區,現在 備受注目的釀酒廠,得數位於九州中部熊本縣菊鹿町的「菊鹿葡萄酒」釀酒廠。 九州中部的熊本縣,本是個農業重鎮,盛產水果、蔬菜、花草及稻米,十多年前與葡 萄酒扯上關係,全因一個日本農業正面對著的重大問題:人口老化——整體出生率偏低, 農夫們的下一代亦無意繼承祖業,更遑論新生代會以務農為生。為了不要再讓棄耕地面積 擴大,熊本縣開始嘗試在山鹿市進行葡萄的栽培,以作為釀製葡萄酒的原料,在地釀製屬 於熊本縣的葡萄酒。 即使在日本生產,但若不是使用百分百的國產葡萄,也無法冠上「日本葡萄酒」的稱 號,因此熊本葡萄酒莊的葡萄均是採用菊鹿町簽約農家嚴選出產的最高品質葡萄。包括於 創業當時使用的新潟縣原產地的日本特有種「Muscat Bailey A」和日本原產品種「巨峰」,隨 後還增加了美國的黑葡萄「Campbell early」的無籽版「Delaware」。熊本葡萄酒株式會社的 「菊鹿葡萄酒」,便是當中熊本葡萄酒代名詞之一。 「 菊 鹿 葡 萄 酒 」當 初 揚 名 , 在 於 只 有 使 用 高 品 質 年 份 葡 萄 所 釀 造 的「 菊 鹿 N i g h t Harvest」。於氣溫低的夜間進行葡萄採收和榨汁,讓葡萄酒的香味更上一層。這酒於2009 年的「日本葡萄酒大賞」中榮獲「最優秀新世界白酒獎」,菊鹿葡萄酒自此備受注目。 熊本縣兩年前因一次大地震備受各界關注,那年被「震走」的,無法以數字衡量,幸 而,熊本的好酒仍能繼續堅毅成長,讓我們感受得到、喝得到從那裡散發的純真善美之味。

When you speak about Japanese liquor, the first thing that comes to mind is sake, made from rice. But did you know that the Japanese began making wine from grapes during the Meiji era nearly 150 years ago? The first vineyard in the Yamanashi Prefecture has been around for more than a century, but Japanese wine, just like Japanese whisky, has been gaining ground in the West. The wine-growing regions in Japan are Yamanashi, Nagano and Yamagata Prefectures and Hokkaido, the most notable winery of which is the maker of Kikuka Chardonnay in Kikuka, Kumamoto, in the central region of Kyushu. Kumamoto is a major agricultural town known for its fruit, vegetables, flora and rice. More than a decade ago, it embarked on wine production as Japan’s agriculture was hampered by its aging population compounded by a low birth rate. The offspring of farmers had no intention to continue on the family farming tradition—with the younger generations even less inclined to do so. In order not to have more farmland going to waste, Kumamoto began growing grapes in Yamagata so wine would be native to Kumamoto. But a natural disaster almost put an end to that. Two years ago, a big earthquake in Kumamoto caused extensive damage. Yet good wines continue to come out of the region and continue to impart the authentic taste of the land. Clearly the Japanese take their wines very seriously. Much like champagne can only be termed Champagne if it is grown and bottled in the Champagne region of France, so, too, in Japan. If the wine is not made with 100 per cent locally produced grapes, it cannot be branded “Japanese Wine”—even if it’s made in Japan. As such, all the grapes used in the Kumamoto winery are picked from contracted farmers’ top-quality produce in Kikuka. In the early days, the grapes used included Japan’s most unique Muscat Bailey A grade grapes grown in the Niigata Prefecture, as well as the Kyoho grapes native to Japan. Since then, dark “Campbell early” grapes from the US and the seedless “Delaware” have been added. Kumamoto Wine’s Kikuka Chardonnay has become synonymous with wines from Kumamoto. Kikuka wines became famous with the Kikuka Night Harvest that used only top-quality grapes from good years. The grapes were harvested and pressed at night when the temperature was low to enhance the wine’s aroma. The wine was awarded the “Best New World White Wine” in the 2009 at the Japan Wine Challenge. Since then, Kikuka wine has been gaining more and more attention.

飲得天然

Naturally speaking

Some restaurants are shying away from traditional wines and including those processed with minimal chemical and technological intervention Story & photography | Renée S. Suen 天然成為大趨勢,就連餐酒界也不例外。過去數年間,愈來 愈多餐廳提供以天然培植的餐酒,在種植及釀製過程中盡可能避 免使用化學物質及高科技,讓每一口瓊漿都能充份展現其獨特的 風土條件。 天然培植餐酒不一定等於有機餐酒或生物動力餐酒。這種 全人工釀製的餐酒從採摘、輾碎及榨汁均以人手進行,酒農更不 會跟天作對,反而會根據大自然的變化而作出相應調整,釀製過 程稱得上高風險,因此產量不多。餐酒不經過濾,酒色較混沌, 亦會根據餐酒的風格分類如funky、live及complex等,亦有色澤 通透並帶果味的天然培植餐酒。天然培植餐酒在世界各地均有生 產,種類由皮浸酒(亦被稱為橘子酒)、以原始方法釀製的汽酒、 以至那些在陶罐或蛋形混凝土缸內進行發酵及熟成的餐酒。

Something prominent is happening on restaurant wine lists of late. In just the last few years wines grown and processed with minimal chemical and technological intervention are appearing among the selections, wines that are a true expression of their distinctive terroir. Not necessarily the same as organic or biodynamic wines, these labourintensive (hand-picked fruit, crushing and pressing), hands-off (where natural winemakers don’t try to control nature but work with it), high-risk approach wines are often made in small batches. Unfiltered, maybe even cloudy in appearance, and sometimes adopting characteristics that many consider funky or live and complex, there are natural wines that are clean and fruity. Produced all over the world, the styles vary from skin-contact (also known as orange wines) and ancestral-method sparkling wine to those that have been fermented and aged in clay amphorae pots or concrete egg-shaped tanks.

除了獨特的酒香及味道外,酒精成分低亦是天然培植餐酒愈 來愈受歡迎的原因。此外它亦不含據稱會引致頭痛(未經證實)的 亞硫酸鹽,這亦表示餐酒不能存放太久,應該趁早飲用。

In addition to their unique aroma and taste, natural wines have become more appealing because they generally have lower alcohol levels and don’t contain additional sulfites that many say (although unproven) cause wine headaches. The drawback of being sulfite-free means that these wines are more unstable in the long run, so most are better consumed when young.

天然培植餐酒不會對環境造成負擔,更可保育文化及傳 統,提倡健康生活。正如滿地可餐廳Cul Sec的負責人Geneviève (Gigi) Bissonnette說:「我們對奉客的食物十分關心,但這份認知 更應用於選擇餐酒之上。」

Natural wines also address many societal concerns, including environmentalism, preservation of culture and tradition, and healthy living that Geneviève (Gigi) Bissonnette of Montreal’s Cul Sec says lets “the consciousness of what we consume also transcend into what we drink.”

隨著天然培植餐酒逐漸成為風潮,大家都希望有更多機會可 以品嚐得到。以下為大家介紹的幾間餐廳分別位於滿地可及多倫 多,他們都主打天然培植餐酒,讓客人開懷暢飲之餘,同時為環 保盡一分責任。

As the movement towards natural wines gains speed, so too does the appreciation of what they can bring to the table. Here are a few places in Montreal and Toronto that specialize in natural wines that let you drink deliciously and responsibly.

Cul-Sec供應的餐酒包括來自 本地著名釀酒商、東部小鎮的 Pinard et Filles,他們出產的魁 北克pinot noir最享負盛名。 Selections from Cul-Sec’s wine list might include wines from celebrated local producer Pinard et Filles of the Eastern Townships, known best for its Quebec pinot noir.

侍酒師Geneviève (Gigi) Bissonnette經常為客人推介餐酒及 美食。 Sommelier Geneviève (Gigi) Bissonnette is a great resource when wining and dining at Cul-Sec.

Cul-Sec的裝潢簡約舒適,餐酒整齊地掛在牆上,酒單不時更新。 Cul-Sec’s simple and cozy design includes a kitchen and wall covered with selections of a frequently changing wine list.

CUL-SEC 滿地可有好幾間餐廳把天然培植餐酒加到他們的酒 單,當中包括這家位於小意大利區中心的溫馨小店Cul Sec。 Cul Sec在老式法文中的意思「乾杯」,它既是餐廳又是社 區內的酒舖。這裡是認識天然培植餐酒的最佳地點,侍酒 師Bissonnette及主廚Martin Juneau(二人和Louis-Philippe Breton同為餐廳老闆)更不時為客人帶來不同種類餐酒,因此 酒單經常更新。 鄰近Juneau及Breton共同經營的Pastaga—城中首間提 供天然培植餐酒的餐廳,Cul Sec的餐酒除可在店內享用,更 作零售外帶(在符合法例規定的情況下),但客人必須同時購 買餐點,此舉十分受歡迎,因為就算過了SAQ規定的營業時 間,客人仍可品嚐美酒。 餐廳每星期從一些小規模的酒莊透過私人入口方式入 貨,很多時候只能訂到一箱,因此很快便會售罄。優質佳釀 包括來自本地著名釀酒商Pinard et Filles的出產、Languedoc’s Mylène Bru的生物動力餐酒、以聖巴巴拉pinot gris葡萄 釀製的J Brix橘子酒,以及Judith Beck酒莊的美酒。 餐廳的酒單多達85%為天然培植餐酒,當中大部分是人 工動力餐酒。剩下的15%為有機酒如Collectif Anonyme。

Montreal is blessed with a number of restaurants boasting interesting natural wine lists, including this cozy space in the heart of Little Italy. Part restaurant part neighbourhood wine shop, Cul-Sec is named after the old French saying for “bottoms up.” It’s also the perfect environment to learn about natural wines or enjoy a variety of offerings from the constantly changing catalogue of wines that sommelier Bissonnette and chef Martin Juneau (who co-owns the space with Louis-Philippe Breton) bring in. Being located around the corner from Juneau and Breton’s Pastaga— one of the city’s first restaurants to popularize natural wines—Cul-Sec allows customers to consume the wines purchased on site or to take out, according to the law, with the purchase of one of the kitchen’s gourmet bites (an especially popular practice for those seeking great wines outside the SAQ’s hours of operation). Bissonnette shares that the wines featured on the evolving list sell quickly, noting the private imports come in weekly—often in one-case allotments from small wineries. Some of the gems you might find include wines from celebrated local producer Pinard et Filles, biodynamic numbers by Languedoc’s Mylène Bru, J Brix’s orange wine from pinot gris grapes made in Santa Barbara, plus wines from Judith Beck. Expect to find about 85 per cent of the list dominated by natural, mostly biodynamic, wines. The remaining 15 per cent are organic, like Collectif Anonyme.

PARIS PARIS 在多倫多市中心Ossington街西北面的盡頭可找到這間雅致的紅 酒吧Paris Paris,酒吧提供與別不同的餐飲選擇。店內雖供應雞尾酒 及啤酒,但主打由總經理Krista Oben(外號葡萄女巫)親自挑選的天然 培植及人工動力餐酒,供應商多為一些小規模釀酒商,有時更需透過 中介或以私人方式訂貸。

At the northwest tip of Toronto’s Ossington strip, this charming wine bar excels in its beverage and food program. There are a few cocktails and beers, but the focus is largely on the growing and ever changing accessible wine list selected by general manager Krista Oben (Grape Witches) that’s largely natural, biodynamic and made by small producers brought in through consignment agents or private orders.

「如果沒有她(指Krista),這個概念根本無法實行。」餐廳老闆之一 的Jesse Fader表示。「她有著餐酒智慧,絕對找不到比她更適合的人 選。」

“This place, as a concept, doesn’t even go without her (Krista),” says restaurant partner Jesse Fader. “She’s a brilliant wine mind. You don’t get to just hire someone like her.”

開放式的餐廳可容納40人,店內有一長酒吧及多張高身的共用式 大型餐桌。大窗旁設有廂座,更提供插座方便需要使用電腦的客人。 天窗為這家前身的畫廊的小店提升採光度,而後方的開放式廚房另設 30個座位。

The 40-seat main room features a bar and long rows of communal high-top tables; the banquette seats wrapped around the front window are outfitted with electrical outlets (tailored for daytime work space). Skylights punched through the former gallery brightens up the space where you’ll find 30 more seats in the open kitchen set up in the rear dining room.

食物方面,幕後主帥是分別來自Bar Fancy及Superpoint的團隊 (包括Fader、Jonathan Poon以及廚師長Nick Morra),菜式無論是不 時更新的小吃或適合多人分享的主菜,都混合了來自世界各地的飲食 特色,例如芝麻醬茄子flatbread就是最佳例子。 Fader說:「我們的菜式並非fusion亞洲菜,而是一種烹飪態度。理 念很單純,就是想把中菜、意大利菜、法國菜或葡國菜的烹飪態度加 到我們的菜單中。」 雖然廚房於午夜收爐,但酒吧繼續提供宵夜小吃如panini三文治 等。喜歡麵包的朋友,一定要試試由Patti Robinson(來自Woodlot餐 廳)每日手工烘焙的全天然發酵麵包。

With food by the team from Bar Fancy and Superpoint (Fader and Jonathan Poon, and executed by chef de cuisine Nick Morra), you can expect changing snack plates and large shareable mains that draw from an international pantry. For example, a flatbread dish features a stunning combination of eggplant with black sesame paste. “It’s not like (Asian) fusion, it’s attitude,” Fader says. “You can pull this very simple, bright attitude from Chinese food, Italian, French or Portuguese.” Although the kitchen closes at midnight, there’s a simple latenight menu put together by the bar that might include panini-pressed sandwiches. For carb lovers, their natural levain breads are hand-made by Patti Robinson (Woodlot) daily. Paris Paris 1161 Dundas St. W., Toronto, 416-535-5656, parisparis.ca

布列塔尼浪漫假期

Beautiful Brittany With medieval castles, seaside towns, indulgent spas and oysters galore, this hilly peninsula in the northwestern most region of France may just be one of the most romantic destinations on earth Story | Leslie Yip 布列塔尼或許不如普羅旺斯或者勃根地出名,但對於當地 的名產,大家必定早有所聞—那便是幾乎每個法國人衣櫥必備的 條紋棉織Breton shirt。這種間條汗衫早盛行於19世紀,是海軍 制服,設計的一大考慮,是水手即使掉進水中也能被輕易辨識。 有一段時間,法國的水兵都出自布列塔尼,於是這種衣服就叫做 Breton shirt。最正宗的Breton shirt有21條條紋,也代表著拿破 崙對抗英國取得的勝利。 布列塔列半島位於法國西北部,被大西洋包圍,由於戰略位 置重要,這裡無論是內陸或是沿海都建築了眾多堡壘及城堡,現 在大部分也開放給遊客觀光。 加拿大人對這裡一個叫St. Malo的小鎮應該最有親切感。 1534年雅克卡蒂亞Jacques Cartier號便是從這裡啟航,前往當 時尚未開發的加拿大。這裡有一所魁北克博物館,標誌著新法國 的建立,也是魁北克省與St. Malo的友好象徵。 不到水療縱情放鬆一下,布列塔尼的假期便稱不上圓滿。當 地人很早就發現了土地和海洋的天然治癒力量,其中一個傑出例 子是Yves Rocher,他在風光如畫的La Gacilly建立並經營起全球 性的皮膚護理王國。 故事由1959年講起,Yves Rocher在自家閣樓將從附近田原 採集到的植物製成潤膚膏。時至今日,這個地區仍為品牌產品提 供著三分之一的植物材料。10年前這個家族經營的公司開了一家 名叫La Grée des Landes的環保水療酒店,客人可享用著名的草 本治療療程。

Brittany may not be as well-known as Provence or Burgundy, but you may already know their most famous product—the Breton shirt. Often regarded as the most quintessential item in the French wardrobe, the striped shirt was originally a 19th century naval sailor’s uniform, designed to help distinguish sailors from sea waves so you could find them more easily when they fell overboard. At one time, all the French navy hailed from Brittany, so the shirt was coined the Breton shirt. The most authentic ones would have 21 stripes: one for each of Napoleon’s victories against the British. The peninsular region is in the northwestern part of France and is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Due to its strategic location, many forts and castles were built, both inland and along the coasts. Many of these sites are open to visitors. One of the most relevant towns for a Canadian to visit would be St. Malo, where Jacques Cartier set sail in 1534 and discovered Canada. You will find the Québec House on the ramparts, a commemoration of the establishment of New France, and a symbol of friendship between the province of Quebec and the walled city of St. Malo. A holiday in Brittany would not be complete without a visit to one of their many spas. Local residents have long discovered the natural healing power from the land and the sea. One prominent example is the late Yves Rocher, who built a worldwide skincare empire from picturesque La Gacilly. The story began in 1959 with a homemade cream he made in his attic, using plants collected from nearby fields. Today, the area still supports a third of all the plant ingredients required in the production of its products. Ten years ago, the family-owned company opened an eco hotel spa called La Grée des Landes, where guests can reap the benefits of its signature botanical treatments.


於1979年已列入聯合國世界遺產的聖米歇爾山,是布列塔尼最著名的景點,每年有超過三百萬遊客 觀光。當中,包括不少來朝聖的天主教徒。 The most famous landmark in Brittany must be Mont St. Michael. Visited by more than three million people each year, this uneSco site is popular with tourists and pilgrims.

trAvel 這裡也是海水浴療法(thalassotherapy)的發源地,thalasso來 自希臘語,意指「海」,therapia則是「治療」之意,這種療法利用海 水及海洋環境,達到人體康健安寧的效果。清新怡人的海洋空氣、 蘊含豐富礦物質的海水,加上以海洋物質為基礎富含微量元素和抗 氧化劑的產品……置身海療中心感受與水療無異,但得到的遠不止 鬆弛和美容。 海療中心體驗從針對個人特點及需要的諮詢開始,無論是減 磅、減壓、一般健康問題、產後恢復還是戒煙等,中心會制訂一套 療程,通常是暖海水循環、浸泡、按摩和裹身等。位處海邊的海療 度假屋也提供極盡浪漫的環境。 說到浪漫,這個地區還以天然壯陽食物—鮮蠔馳名。當中最值 得一探的,是離聖米高山Mont St. Michel半小時車程、有法國(有人 甚至說是世界)蠔都之稱的康卡勒Cancale。這裡專門養殖被高度讚 賞的扁殼Belon蠔,肉質結實、口味豐盈、特別鮮甜。 還有林林總總的貝殼類海產,包括日本常見的圓形蠔或者有 幼紋的克勒茲蠔。這裡還出產法國唯一身份受到保護的青口,列明 “Appellation d’Origine Protégée”(AOP),這種青口以傳統養殖方 法生產,將青口籽種在繩上,用兩枝桿擱起,潮漲時青口仍能呼 吸,水退時則暴露於海洋空氣,結果是風味獨特。 想了解更多相關資料,請瀏覽brittanytourism.com

The region is also the birthplace of thalassotherapy. Stemming from the Greek word thalasso, meaning “sea” and therapia meaning “treatment”, it uses the healing and beneficial properties of the sea and the marine environment for health and well-being. Think invigorating sea air, mineral-rich seawater and marine-based products rich in trace elements and antioxidants, a visit to a thalasso centre is a similar experience to a spa, but the emphasis is not only on relaxation and beauty. Typically, it begins on a consultation to address your areas of concern, whether it’s weight loss, stress reduction, general wellness, post natal or smoking cessation. Then, a customized program is prescribed, which usually combines warm seawater circuits, soaks, massages and wraps. Because of its seaside location, thalasso spa resorts also make for a romantic setting for a getaway. Speaking of romance, the region is also famous for its oysters— nature’s aphrodisiacs. One of the best places to indulge is Cancale, about half hour’s drive from Mont St. Michel. Touted as the oyster capital of France, and some say even the world, it specializes in farming the highly prized flat shell Belon oysters, which offer a firmer texture, rich taste and a distinctive sweetness. Other types of shellfish can be found in abundance, too, including Japanese style round or creuses oysters, winkles and cockles. The region also produces the country’s only mussels with a protected origin status. Marked as “Appellation d’Origine Protégée” (AOP), the bouchot mussels are produced using a traditional aquaculture technique that seeds the mussels on ropes suspended by two poles, so they can bathe in water during high tide and be exposed to the marine air when the sea recedes, giving them a distinctive flavour. For more information, visit brittanytourism.com.

Yves Rocher的La Grée des Landes環保水療度假屋有29間房,情侶私人水療套裝360歐元起,包括在Les Jardins Sauvages有 機餐廳享用一頓午餐、50分鐘情侶療程、50分鐘情侶健康活動及使用所有水療設備。 La Grée des Landes by Yves Rocher is a 29-room eco spa and resort.

The medieval town and salt marshes of Guérande is just 15 minutes away and makes for a nice day trip. hotelsbarriere.com

The most authentic way to enjoy local oysters is to buy and eat right at the quayside market. You can find these markets in almost every coastal town, the most famous being Cancale, Riec-sur-Belon and Vannes. The stall holders will open the shellfish for you (half a Euro per dozen) and even give you half a lemon (another half a Euro).

身形圓潤的老闆娘向我喊著:「Gringo, gringo(意謂外國佬)。」 希望我走到她那色彩繽紛的路邊車買份熱狗(hotdog y chingas)。天 呀,才清晨6時半啊! 我的導遊Ernesto說熱狗原來是巴拿馬人的早餐。即使很早,但 巴拿馬首都巴拿馬城的街上已經十分繁忙。當地警察Policia Nacional 已出動「捉快車」,警車坐滿被扣上手銬、即將被送進監牢的違例駕駛 者,可見當地嚴厲打擊衝紅燈。 此時,一台台掛有聖誕裝飾的柴油校巴浩浩蕩蕩出現。Ernesto 說:「巴士是國民的主要公共交通工具,所有巴士都是私營,本地人稱 巴士司機為紅魔鬼,因為他們經常釀成交通意外。」 巴拿馬運河連接大西洋及大平洋,這個充滿活力的拉丁美洲首都 似乎驚喜處處。 趁遊客未算多,Ernesto建議先到運河參觀。我們驅車沿Avenida Balboa大道向目的地進發,Avenida Balboa是市內的主要大道,一面 是太平洋海岸線的天然美景,另一面則是摩天大樓林立的石屎森林, 感覺跟香港十分相似。

The rotund woman with the moon-beam face draws me to her colourful food cart by shouting, “Gringo, gringo”. She playfully flirts with me, hoping I’ll purchase one of the “hotdog y chingas” cooking on her greasy grill. I’m tempted, but heck, it’s only 6:30 in the a.m. “Apparently the hot dog is the breakfast food of Panama,” at least that is what my guide Ernesto tells me. It’s early, but the streets of Panama’s handsome capital, Panama City, are already alive with people and traffic. Down the street, the Policia Nacional have set up a speed trap and their patrol truck is packed with handcuffed traffic violators about to be carted off to jail. They take running red lights seriously in this town. A convoy of diesel-belching school buses decorated with Christmas presents suddenly appear on the horizon. “The buses are public transportation for most of our citizens,” says Ernesto. “All the buses here are privately owned and the drivers are locally known as the Red Devils because they cause so many accidents.” There seems to be a surprise around every corner in this vibrant Latin American capital where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans are linked by the Panama Canal.

老城區已被列入為UNESCO世界遺產, 圖中是區內部分歷史建築。 More historic buildings from the Old Town, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

“Let’s get to the canal before too many tourists arrive,” says Ernesto while devouring the last of his hotdog. “A day without a hotdog y chingas is not a good day,” he says as we speed along the Avenida Balboa, the city’s handsome main thoroughfare that’s lined on one side by a pristine Pacific coastline and on the other by a forest of glass and steel towers that make this vertical city look a lot like Hong Kong. “Our population has really grown in the last 10 years thanks to the influx of (retired) Canadians and Americans,” says the guide as the modern skyline gives way to a grouping of colonial-style buildings painted in pretty pastel colours. “That’s Casco Antiguo (the Old Town) and some of the buildings date back to when the Spanish first arrived in the 16th century,” says Ernesto. One street on the edge of the Old Town stands out from all the rest—surprisingly, the signs in front of the restaurants and shops all have Chinese lettering. “We have one of the biggest Chinatowns anywhere. Chinese labourers were brought to Panama to help build the canal and they never left,” says Ernesto, quickly adding, “once you’ve lived in paradise, you never leave.” There are more than 160,000 Chinese living in Panama City, which offers one of the most diverse populations in the world, thanks primarily to the canal’s international draw. That’s given Panama City a unique culinary and entertainment scene that’s the envy of its Latin American neighbours.

「由於很多加國人及美國人在退休後移居巴拿馬,我們的人口在 過去10年持續上升。」導遊Ernesto如是說。我們身後是一群色彩淡 雅、充滿殖民地特色的建築物。「這裡是Casco Antiguo(老城區),部 分建築物是西班牙人於16世紀首次踏足巴拿馬時興建的。」 老城區邊緣的其中一條街十分搶眼,因為出奇地所有餐廳及店舖 門外都掛上中文招牌。「我們擁有全世界其中一個最大的唐人街。當年 很多中國勞工被帶到這裡興建運河,之後更在此落地生根。活在人間 天堂,試問有誰捨得離開?」 巴拿馬城有超過16萬華人,運河吸引了世界各地的人前來定居, 使它成為全球人口最多元化的地方之一,從而衍生出獨一無二的飲食 及娛樂文化,令其他拉丁美洲鄰國十分「眼紅」。 終於,我們抵達運河並攀上瞭望台的頂層,鳥瞰這人工興建的 奇蹟,當然要找個好位置欣賞大型船隻如何進入這狹窄的河道—距離 兩大洋最短的距離。運河是巴拿馬人的驕傲,亦是國家最大的收入來 源。自1999年美國把這條全長80公里的人工運河主權移交巴拿馬政府 後,以每艘船需繳交平均14萬元的通行費來計算,當地政府收取的通 行費已達數億元。政府把這些款項用於興建學校、醫院及大型基建工 程,令巴拿馬成為拉丁美洲發展步伐最快的國家。 巴拿馬亦是外國銀行及保險公司的主要樞紐,不少美國人更特意 前往當地進行手術,手術費用相宜外,當地醫院的醫療技術亦數一數 二。 運河工人Judith Rios這樣說:「這條運河不僅只有海水、船隻及 鋼閘,更是我們國家的命脈。向全世界展示出只要巴拿馬人願意付出 心思及努力,甚麼都難不倒我們。」 遊客中心內的博物館記錄了運河興建時不同階段的歷史,以及 建造初期法國及美國工人的辛酸事跡。當中的互動展覽解構了運河背 後巧妙的設計。其中最受歡迎的展覽是一隻足足有棒球手套般大的昆 蟲,這是工程期間,工人於沼澤及森林時需要對付的昆蟲。

When we finally reach the canal, we climb to the top of the observation tower that overlooks the man-made wonder and jockey for position as a giant ship enters the narrow channel that is the shortest distance between the world’s two major oceans. The Panama Canal is a symbol of great national pride for Panamanians and a major source of income for the country. Since the United States turned management of the 80km wonder over to Panama in 1999, the country has collected billions of dollars in tolls from shippers. Those funds—it costs ships an average of $140,000 each to pass through the canal—are used to fund schools, hospitals and major infrastructure projects, making Panama one of the most progressive countries in Latin America. The country is also a major hub for foreign banks and insurance companies, and many Americans come to Panama City for inexpensive surgical procedures—the hospitals here have few equals. Judith Rios, a worker at the canal says that “this canal is not just water and ships and steel gates, it’s the lifeblood of my country. It showcases to the world what Panamanians can do when they put their minds and backs to it.” A museum inside the visitors’ centre chronicles the different building stages of the canal and the hardships endured first by the French and then by American workers. It employs interactive exhibits to explain the ingenuity behind the canal. One of the most popular displays is the one with giant bugs, like cockroaches the size of a baseball glove, that workers had to contend with in the swamps and jungles during the canal’s construction. On our way back to the Old Town, we pass many high-end designer shops. Ernesto tells me Panama has become the shopping mecca of Latin America. “The ships bring lots of duty-free goods to Panama City, so you can buy Gucci, Prada, Chanel and all the other major brands for a fraction of what you’ll pay in Miami and New York.” Walking the narrow streets of the Old Town is like stepping back in time. The balconies of the homes and shops in this area are decorated with artistic wrought-iron railings, and many of the colonial buildings have been transformed into chic boutique hotels and restaurants. When we reach the Iglesia of San Jose on Avenida A (Church of the Golden Altar), I am told that this is one of Panama’s most treasured landmarks. ELITEGEN

trAvel 巴拿馬城有很多美麗的公園,園內可欣賞到各種熱帶植物及偉人的雕像。 Panama City features many handsome parks filled with lots of tropical plants and statues of past heroes.

巴拿馬城的老城區充滿殖民地色彩,穿上傳統服飾的本地人喜歡跟遊客聊天。 Panama City’s Old Town is a colonial paradise, where locals in traditional dress like to mingle with the tourists.

返回老城區途中,我們經過很多設計師名店,Ernesto說巴拿馬 已成為拉丁美洲的購物聖地。「船隻把大量免稅商品帶到巴拿馬城,你 可以在這裡買到Gucci、Prada、Chanel及其他知名品牌,售價更比邁 阿密及紐約便宜一大截。」 穿梭於老城的橫街窄巷,感覺有如時光倒流。房子及商店的陽 台都飾以別緻的鑄鐵欄杆,區內很多殖民地式建築都已改建為時尚的 精品酒店及餐廳。而位於Avenida A街上的聖荷西教堂(Iglesia of San Jose),以其黃金聖壇聞名,是巴拿馬最珍貴的地標之一。 踏入教堂之際,目光立即被刻有天使及聖像的黃金聖壇吸引,實 在美得令人屏息。Ernesto娓娓道來教堂的歷史:「老城區於300年前 被英國海盜Henry Morgan洗劫一空,他所經過之處盡被燒毀。一名祭 師為了保護黃金聖壇,在聖壇上塗抹黑色瀝青來掩蓋它的價值,才讓 這瑰寶幸保不失。」 由於老城區已被列入為UNESCO世界遺產,當地政府著力修飾區 內的歷史建築物,因此不難發現位於教堂附近、座落Avenida A及一 些橫街的建築物外面都搭有建築棚架。 此際,見到面前走過兩位穿上傳統服飾的原住民女性,令人一下 子回想起巴拿馬的古老過去。巴拿馬共有11個原始部落,很多都已移 居到城市生活。而其他的部族仍大多沿巴拿馬運河流域中的湖泊及河 流居住。 街上到處可見人民聚集於公園及廣場閒聊,享受明媚的熱帶氣 候。Bolivar廣場是老城區最美麗的廣場之一,它以南美獨立運動領袖 Simon Bolivar命名。Bolivar被稱為El Libertador(解放者),他帶領拉 丁美洲國家脫離西班牙的統治,因此在當地備受尊崇。

As I enter the church, my eyes are immediately drawn to an ornate golden altar carved with angels and saints. It’s absolutely breathtaking. Says Ernesto: “When the English pirate Henry Morgan attacked the Old Town 300 years ago and was burning and looting everything in sight, a priest covered the Golden Altar in black tar to hide its real value from the pirate. So Morgan left without our city’s greatest treasure.” Around the church many of the historic buildings along Avenida A and the side streets are covered in scaffolding. Since Casco Antiguo was given UNESCO World Heritage Site status, Panama has been sprucing up much of its historic structures. Suddenly, a reminder of Panama’s ancient past is blocking our route—we’ve come upon two native women dressed in traditional garb who are out for a walk. “There are 11 native tribes in Panama,” says Ernesto, “and many of the native people have moved into the city.” Many others, though, live along the lakes and rivers created within the Panama Canal system. Everywhere I look, there are parks and squares where people gather to engage in casual conversation or to enjoy the tropical splendour. One of the loveliest squares in the Old Town is Plaza Bolivar, named after the South American leader Simon Bolivar. Better known as El Libertador (The Liberator), Bolivar is revered here because he secured Latin America’s independence from Spain. Because of its stable government and new-found wealth, many five-star resorts have cropped up in recent years with championship golf courses and condo residents surrounding them. One of the most impressive is the recently completed Santa Maria Golf and Country Club, located halfway between Panama City and Tocumen International Airport. Stunning seems such an inadequate word to describe this breathtaking resort complex, where you get remarkable views of Panama City’s dramatic skyline from almost every tee.

政局穩定,加上從運河而來的豐富收入,近年巴拿馬興建了愈來 愈多附高爾夫球場的五星度假酒店及高級住宅大廈。當中有最近落成 的Santa Maria Golf and Country Club,它位處巴拿馬城和Tocumen 國際機場中間,高球場上幾乎每一個洞都可以欣賞到巴拿馬城的無敵 天際線,景色之美絕非筆墨可以形容。 Santa Maria盡顯現今巴拿馬的繁榮富庶。不過,相比起其他度假 勝地如邁阿密,這裡的樓價相宜得多。Ernesto說:「巴拿馬城的柏文 售價平均為14萬元。」 巴拿馬最吸引人的地方,是這一分鐘你可以在巴拿馬城被繁囂的 石屎森林包圍,下一分鐘便可置身熱帶森林之中。在到訪Summit Golf Club and Resort時便有如此感受,這間Radisson集團旗下的度假酒店 位處懸崖之上,可俯瞰翠綠的高爾夫球場,同時可眺望巴拿馬城及運 河美景以及附近的自然生態。 最令我印象深刻的是JW Marriott Resort,它位於巴拿馬城外的 Rio Hato。當中的Buenaventura高爾夫球場由名師Jack Nicklaus設 計,這更是他其中一個最得意之作。The Sheraton Bijao Beach Club Santa Clara及全新開幕的Vista Mar Resort亦同樣值得推介,難怪巴拿 馬已迅速成為拉丁美洲最熱門的度假勝地。 巴拿馬亦逐漸趕上哥斯達黎加及貝里斯,成為生態旅遊的勝 地。距離巴拿馬城僅短短車程的Baru火山國家公園,亮點當然是雄 偉的火山。喜歡水底探險的朋友則可前往位於Bocas del Toro群島的 Bastimentos Island國家海洋公園,亦可於Zapatillas Cays島上潛水。 到訪這個美麗的拉丁美洲國家,別忘了戴上經典的巴拿馬帽,因為你 會不住地將帽子微微向前傾,向巴拿馬的美致敬。

Santa Maria certainly reflects Panama’s new-found prosperity. However, unlike Miami, the condos and residents here are very affordable. “Condo prices in Panama City average about $140,000,” says Ernesto. The remarkable thing about Panama is that you can be standing in a forest of highrise towers in Panama City one minute and in a tropical forest the next. That’s what I experience when I visit the Summit Golf Club and Resort, where I check into a stunning Radisson Hotel perched high on a cliff overlooking the course that affords guests stunning views of the city, canal and surrounding wilderness. For my money, though, the most impressive hotel in Panama is the JW Marriott Resort in Rio Hato, just outside Panama City. The Buenaventura Golf Club there was designed by non other than the legendary Jack Nicklaus; it’s one of his best efforts. The Sheraton Bijao Beach Club Santa Clara and the newly-opened Vista Mar Resort are other stunning examples of why Panama is quickly becoming the hottest destination in Latin America. Panama is also challenging Costa Rica and Belize as a desired destination for eco-tourists. Tropical adventures can be experienced a short drive from Panama City in places like Baru Volcano National Park, home to a spectacular volcano. Underwater adventurers can get their fix in Bastimentos Island National Marine Park in the Bocas del Toro archipelago and the Zapatillas Cays offers scuba buffs some challenging dives. The legendary Panama Hat is required dress in this Latin American beauty and it’s easy to see why—you’ll be tipping your hat a lot in gratitude for what this country has to offer.

For more than three decades, Acura has been growing its reputation in Canada for building precision-crafted cars and SUVs. As the luxury division of the Honda Motor Company, Acura was the first Japanese luxury brand introduced into North America. And since its debut in 1987, Acura has never looked back. In fact, Acura prides itself in building vehicles with exhilarating performance, unmatched attention to detail and exceptional comfort and reliability. As a leader in the luxury market, Acura has been at the forefront of technological and safety innovations over the years. But more than that, Acura has built a sense of excitement into their vehicles with DNA derived from supercars like Acura’s range-topping NSX sports car. To get an idea of this, one need look no further than the new A-Spec sport appearance packages, now offered on all of Acura’s core models— MDX, RDX, TLX and ILX. Let’s take a look at the MDX, a mid-size luxury three-row crossover SUV that was voted Best Premium Utility Vehicle in 2018 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). For 2019, the MDX adds to an already winning formula with a number of enhancements including the new A-Spec package available exclusively with Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Key features include unique A-Spec 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels clad with lowprofile 265/45 series tires. Other highlights include an aggressive-looking front fascia, body-colour lower sills and larger diameter exhaust finishers. Outside, the A-Spec variant also gets gloss black and dark chrome trim around the headlights, grille, window surround and rear tailgate spoiler. Inside is distinguished with sport seats that are trimmed in red or black leather with black Alcantara inserts, contrasting stitching and gauges and sport pedals that are unique to A-Spec. The A-Spec interior on the MDX also gets Alcantara door inserts, a special badged steering wheel with paddle shifters and unique A-Spec door sills. The RDX, TLX and ILX get similar treatments with their A-Spec packages that create a bolder, sportier appearance both inside and out. All this adds up to a lineup of vehicles under the Acura brand that combine luxury, precision-craftsmanship, performance and design excitement when you factor in the new A-Spec appearance packages, available on all core models.

盡顯獨有氣派

High performance Exclusivity is the name of the game with BMW’s Alpina B6 Gran Coupe Story | Lorne Drury (Metroland Media) 對於喜歡「只此一家」的人來說,2019年款的 Alpina B6就是不二之選。這款Alpina B6豪華四門 轎跑車Gran Coupe源自寶馬六系,擁有流線型下 滑的車頂,線條優美獨特。 Alpina B6的產量比寶馬M系的車款更少,可說 是專為鍾情於限量版、高性能四門房車和享受一枝 獨秀的愛車人士而設。 性能超卓就是Alpina B6與別不同之處,和六 系的分別主要在於配備了強勁的4.4公升V8雙渦輪 增壓引擎,能迸發出600匹馬力和590磅/呎的扭 力,同時搭載先進的八速自動波箱,把動力分配到 所有四個車輪,讓這輛車在動力表現方面無可挑 剔。 任何熟悉寶馬的人都知道其M系車款是在以性 能主導的M系廠房內生產。既然M6已經在六系的陣 容內,為什麼還會有B6呢?而Alpine這名字又從何 而來? 簡而言之,M6與B6的分別就在於兩者的驅動 模式—M6是後輪驅動,而B6則採用寶馬的xDrive 全輪驅動系統,最適合加拿大這個難以預測的冬季 天氣。

For anyone who values exclusivity, it doesn’t get much better than the 2019 Alpina B6. Based on BMW’s 6 Series, the Alpina B6 is called a Gran Coupe, a luxury four-door sedan with a sloping, coupe-like roofline. Produced in even lower volume numbers than BMW M series models, the Alpina B6 might be just the vehicle for the customer who wants a limited-edition, highperformance sedan that will stand out from the crowd. Performance is the key word here. This limitedproduction variant of the 6 Series boasts a twin-turbo, 4.4-litre V8 engine that kicks out 600 horsepower and a whopping 590 lb/ft of torque. It’s mated with an eightspeed automatic transmission and power is distributed to all four wheels. Anyone familiar with BMW will know all about its M models, produced in-house at the performance-oriented M division. So, with an M6 already on the 6 Series lineup sheet, why a B6 as well and where does this Alpina name come from? In short, the difference between the M6 and B6 is the drive modes—M6 is rear-wheel drive, while the B6 has BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system, making it a perfect fit for Canada and its unpredictable winter weather.

而Alpina是獨家品牌的高性能汽車,它與寶 馬合作,採用六系Gran Coupes並把它們改裝成 Alpina的模樣。B6的車身在寶馬車廠製造,然後由 位於德國Buchloe的Alpina以人手精心製作完成。

Now to Alpina, which is a high-performance, exclusive automotive brand unto itself that partners with BMW and takes 6 Series Gran Coupes and transforms them into the Alpina mold. The B6 body is manufactured in the BMW factory and then hand-finished by Alpina in Buchloe, Germany.

根據寶馬車廠的介紹,Alpina B6巧妙地採用 了寶馬六系Gran Coupe的精粹部分,配合Alpina的 優質設計和開發的機械工程,可謂相得益彰。

According to BMW, the Alpina B6 has “subtle BMW enhancements adopted from the 6 Series Gran Coupe and benefits further from design and engineering developments made by Alpina.”

單以顏色而論,我們試駕的轎跑車外表與別不 同,噴上了獨特的冷冽金屬黃銅色(價值2,000元), 而車內則選用吸睛的象牙白高級Nappa皮革裝飾。

Based on its colour scheme alone, our test vehicle had a distinctive look, painted a unique Frozen Bronze Metallic ($2,000) on the exterior, with an eye-catching Ivory White Extended Nappa Leather interior.

B6售價由103,900元起,選置Alpina套件需另加34,500 元,而添置Alpina行政套件得再加9,700元。單項選置有價值 1,000元的輔助駕駛加強系統(Driving Assistant Plus) 、具偵 測行人功能的夜視鏡頭(價值2,500元) ,以及優質的Bang & Olufsen音響系統(價值4,900元) 。這些添置項目加起來,把 測試的座駕價格提升至158,500元,另外還要加上2,245元的 到岸費。 Alpina套件包括有型的20吋多輻條輪圈,配以高性能非 防爆輪胎,中心鑲上奪目的Alpina徽章。而六系Gran Coupe 的前擾流板更刻上其名字「Alpina」,凸顯其非凡的設計。可 能有人會覺得這裝飾華而不實,但它就是增加了這車的吸引 力。

Starting at $103,900, the Alpina Package adds $34,500 and the Alpina Executive Package tacks on an additional $9,700 to the list price. Stand-alone options like Driving Assistant Plus ($1,000), Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection ($2,500) and a Bang and Olufsen sound system ($4,900) took the as-tested price to $158,500, plus $2,245 in destination charges. Included in the Alpina package are gorgeous 20-inch, multispoke wheels with performance non-run-flat tires and an eyecatching Alpina badge in the centre. There’s no mistaking this for the Alpina variant of the 6 Series Gran Coupe with the Alpina name on the front spoiler. One might think this would be gaudy, but it simply adds to the allure of the vehicle.

除了有陶瓷裝飾控制裝置、Sirius衛星電台、皮革儀錶 板、縫線顏色對比強烈的舒適座椅、車胎氣壓監察器和應變 式駕駛系統之外,這套件還包括多個Alpina的特別設計。

There are other Alpina-specific design cues included in the package in addition to ceramic controls, Sirius satellite radio, a leather instrument panel, comfort seats up front with contrasting stitching, tire pressure monitor and adaptive drive.

而行政套件包括添加緩關門設備、兩邊和後面遮陽簾、 通風座椅、平視顯示器、環視鏡頭等等。我們測試的B6選 置了Bang & Olufsen音響系統,取代標準裝置的Harmon Kardon環迴音響系統。

The Executive Package adds soft-close doors, side and rear sunshades, ventilated seats, head-up display, surround-view camera and other features. The optional Bang & Olufsen sound system on our tester replaced the standard Harmon Kardon surround-sound system.

你一定會認為以這個偏高的售價,Alpina B6應該有齊所 有的豪華設施和高科技的功能。它確不負所望,車內裝飾奢 華、舒適和非常吸引。

Needless to say, the Alpina B6 has all the luxury and technology features one would expect in this price range. The interior is sumptuous, comfortable and oh so inviting.

擁有600匹馬力的Alpina B6,用盡全力從零加速至時速 100公里,所需的時間在4秒之內。但它似是一般在路上行 駛的汽車多於像賽道上的耀星。你可能會以為這樣強勁的汽 車,在車內一定會聽到很巨大的聲浪,然而車廂隔音很好, 車內很寧靜。 這輛車的駕駛質量簡直一流,部分原因是其懸掛系統由 Alpina調校。駕駛者可以選擇四個駕駛模式,感受不同模式 在駕駛、操控和性能方面的獨特表現。 車廂座位舒適,前排座椅有16向調校,並有很多空間。 雖然後排座椅的頭頂空間由於車頂線下滑而收窄,但仍真正 用得著,因此Alpina B6是可作為日常使用的汽車。 對於喜歡高性能、外型似雙門跑車而實際是豪華家庭轎 車的人士來說,Alpina B6絕對符合要求。而對於重視「物以 罕為貴」的人來說,這車與寶馬陣容的一樣好。

With an engine putting out 600 horsepower, one would expect cabin noise to be considerable, but that’s not the case with the Alpina B6. In fact, cabin occupants are well insulated from outside intrusions. Even with all the power and a 0-100 km/h acceleration time in the four-second range, the B6 Alpina is more of a road cruiser than a track star. The ride quality is excellent, thanks in part to the Alpina-tuned suspension. The operator can choose between four driving modes, all of which give the car a different feel when it comes to ride, handling and performance. The front seats are 16-way adjustable with loads of room. Rearseat headroom is compromised by the sloping roofline, but this is a real back seat folks and is more than usable, making the B6 Alpina an everyday vehicle. For anyone who loves a high-performance, luxury family sedan with a coupe-like look, the B6 Alpina certainly fits the bill. And for those who value exclusivity, this is as good as it gets in the BMW lineup.

全球最小的高倍變焦數碼相機

Great things come in small packages The Sony HX99 is the world’s tiniest broad zoom-range digital camera Story & photography | Ringo Chan

今時今日,還有人要買個子小小的數碼相機嗎? 看到Sony HX99的ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T鏡頭變焦範圍由24720mm而只有102x58x35mm大小,是全球體積最小的高倍變焦數碼 相機,能夠一鏡走天涯卻又不會有重量及體積負累,或許會改觀。 要知道720mm的遠攝功能和效果,大可看看這裡的示範圖片, 便知其遠攝的「震撼力」。更讓人驚訝的是相機的防震系統,在光線 充足於超長距情況下拍攝的影像沒有抖震,成象比想象清晰得多。 HX99採用具1,820萬有效像素的Exmor RTM CMOS感應器,尺 寸是1/2.3吋,對焦時間是0.09秒、連拍速度每秒10張、緩衝拍攝達 155張。4K拍片,相機聲稱能收集多1.6倍data,能令影像減少摩爾 紋及鋸齒,解像度更出色。全新的BIONZ X影像處理系統加持,拍照 及拍片均操作流暢。 在陽光充沛下看相機的LCD屏幕是苦事,難得HX99在如此袖珍 身段仍然加入內置可伸縮對比度達638,400點的OLED Tru-Finder觀 景器。還在薄薄機身加設手柄,提供相當舒適的握機手感和穩定度。 有待改進的,是F3.5-6.4的光圈有點不夠,微距能力也未發揮 得好。 即使相隔百碼以上,也能清楚顯示旗幟上的人像。 Even from hundreds of yards away, you can see the detail of the red banners below.

So you think mini-digital cameras are irrelevent in this day and age? The Sony HX99 may change your mind. This camera, measuring only 102x58x35mms, has a Zeiss VarioSonnar 24-720mm zoom lens. It claims to be the world’s smallest compact camera that offers a broad-range zoom, making it a very handy device to carry around. Judge for yourself how well it works through the demo pics on these pages. The SteadyShot system for compensating camera vibration is a pleasant surprise. It delivers clearer-than-expected pictures with shake reduction, even at high zoom range in decent lighting. The HX99 is fitted with the 1/2.3 type Exmor RTM CMOS sensor with 18.2 megapixel resolution. The fast intelligent autofocus offers a very quick 0.09-second response. High-speed continuous shooting delivers 10 frames per second and is able to shoot up to 155 continuous images. Video recording can record about 1.6 times as much information as required for 4K video output, in superior resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies. Together with the new BIONZ X image-processing system, shooting pictures or videos are smooth operations. Viewing LCDs in bright light is usually a challenge. However, the HX99, despite its compact size, has a retractable built-in, highcontrast OLED Tru-Finder with about 638,400 dots, as well as an upgraded grip to offer a firm hold and stability. Having said all that, the aperture range of F3.5-6.4 is a bit limiting, and the micro shots have some room for improvement. But in all, this tiny camera is still a marvel of photo tech.

Last November, select media were treated to a sustainable seafood feast @boehmerto. In celebration of #OceanWise month, the menu included roasted Arctic char and pan-seared pickerel. Partner restaurants also included @omaw.ca and @momofukutoronto, and program ambassador Ned Bell flew in from Vancouver to add his signature West Coast influence. Pictured (L to R) are chefs Hans Vogels, David Schwartz, Paul Boehmer, Josef Larita and Ned Bell. #海鮮節

Congratulations on the reopening of Michael Kors at Yorkdale! This will be the only Canadian store to score the runway collection, and the second location to carry the men’s line (West Edmonton Mall is the other). We met up with Robert Tateossian, founder of @tateossianlondon, when he visited Toronto earlier. This asymmetric pair, named after Abraham-Louis Perrelet, is our favourite! It features a fully functioning watch with a mechanical face on one side and an exposed movement with spinning cogs on the other! He told us it took a year to develop this idea. #watchcufflinks #haberdashery #迷你手錶

Escada’s pre-spring 2019 collection is bloom-tiful! Did you know it was designed by Toronto artist @kauragulshani? It’s eye-opening to see the original painting and how the art has been transformed into garments. Love those bright blooms —guaranteed to brighten up a wintry day. #flowerpower #花花世界

Have you seen champagne sabrage in real life? Now that St. Regis Toronto is open, you can see the performance every day at 5 p.m. @louixlouis on the 31st floor. It’s one of several signature rituals at the luxury hotel. The Bloody Mary is another one—said to have been invented in St. Regis New York’s King Cole Bar in 1934. #neweraofglamour #瑞吉酒店
