百尺竿頭 Happy BirtHday to us     一晃眼原來已經五年了!九月這期正是《星尚》的五歲生 辰。     回想五年前,當大家都說紙媒面臨挑戰,聽到我們要辦 一本行銷全國、以時尚潮流生活為主題的雜誌時,都瞪大了 眼,各式勸諫聽到不少,但不改我們開拓這個市場的決心。     五年來闖過不少高山低谷,但事實證明我們的決定是正 確的—2017年進軍加拿大市場的50個國際品牌,當中四成 均是劍指豪華消費市場。市場情報公司POTLOC指出,加拿 大的富裕階層人均財富增長高於美國,帶動著珠寶、手錶、 豪華汽車、品牌時裝等行業的發展。顧問公司Bain於2018 年的報告中,更預計去到2025年,華人將佔豪華消費市場 銷售額的一半。剛過去的七月,豪華品牌策略專家Amish  Dargan亦發文表示,加拿大亞裔人士將是推動本土奢侈品 市場營業額增長的最大支柱。     《星尚》迎合潮流走勢,是加拿大市場上唯一以高級時尚 市場為對象的雙語雜誌。在市場熾熱增長的同時,我們也積 極擴充發行網,今個夏天開始,《星尚》進軍卑詩省、亞爾伯 達省、安省和魅北克省,超過六百家主流書店、超級市場、 藥房和報攤等零售商。讀者可到elitegen.ca/newsstand輸入 郵區編號,便可找到鄰近的銷售點。     今期更有兩大紅人︰鍾嘉欣和王嘉爾跟我們慶祝。封面 人物鍾嘉欣,即使淡出螢幕數年,成為了兩個小孩的媽媽, 明星光芒依舊無減,更增添溢於言表的幸福感。香港出生 的王嘉爾,曾是亞青錦標賽的劍擊金牌得主,現在是男團 GOT7一員,紅遍亞洲,最近成為著名品牌Fendi的形象大 使,聯乘推出Capsule服裝系列。

Half a decade ago, eliteGen was born out of a vision to create a high quality, beautifully printed luxury lifestyle magazine for Chinese-Canadians. It was a bold idea then, to launch a new print product when many publications appear to be struggling. But we soldiered on, recognizing the need for a high-end, bilingual magazine that caters to Canada’s Chinese elite. The first issue of eliteGen was published in September 2014. Fast forward five years, and we are happy that the market is telling us we made the right decision. Retail Insider notes that 40 per cent of about 50 new international retailers that entered Canada in 2017 were considered to be “in the luxury segment of the market”. Market intelligence hub POTLOC observed a “rapidly increasing population of wealthy residents with growth exceeding that of the United States, and that jewellery, watches, luxury cars, fashion boutiques and bridal salons are retail categories that are benefiting from the increase of this population segment. Bain consultancy estimated in a 2018 report that Chinese consumers will account for half of all luxury sales by 2025. And this July, Canadian luxury branding specialist Amish Dargan published an article citing that “the Asian demographic has become a major driver for the growth of luxury brands, a trend that is only expected to pick up steam”. We are proud to be the only Chinese-English magazine targeting this red hot market. As the luxury retail landscape expands, so does our readership. We began as a closed circulation publication distributed in select outlets and to select households. Since the beginning of summer, we have been awarded shelf space by mainstream newsstands (see pic below), adding more than 600 distribution points across British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, increasing our reach multifold. You can find your nearest outlet simply by entering your postal code at elitegen. ca/newsstand. Helping us celebrate our fifth anniversary issue are two very beloved Asian celebrities: our cover girl Linda Chung who, seemingly in a blink of an eye, went from star actress to doting mom; and heartthrob Jackson Wang, in our exclusive chat, talks about his first capsule collaboration with Fendi for Fendiman. Plus, don’t forget to count the carats on the most bedazzled timepieces or take your exotic car on vacation to a resort with its own Formula One racetrack. We hope you enjoy this issue and that you make this September a month to remember.

    今期尚有不少精彩內容迎接這個饒有意義的九月,誠邀 閣下與我們一同慶祝。

《星尚》已進駐逾600家主流書 店、超級市場和藥房等。 eliteGen is now on newsstands nationwide, including Shoppers Drug Marts, Loblaws, and Chapters and Indigo stores.

Jaquet Droz, with 280 years of craftsmanship, is one of the world’s oldest watchmakers. Its new Magic Lotus Automaton dazzles with a lively scene of a lotus pond, which took three years to plan and assemble. The black onyx sub-dial sits at 12 o’clock, above the red-gold lotus pond. Mother-of-pearl adorns the lotus petals and buds. Gemstones of blue, red and yellow appear at random when the flower disappears and re-emerges. A koi carp swims in the pond, occasionally dipping below the surface to pass under the lotus leaves. The dragonfly on the lotus leaf is, in fact, the power reserve indicator. When the watch is fully wound, the dragonfly hovers midair, and then it gradually flies lower and eventually rests on the lotus leaf when the power goes down. The watch comes in red gold or white gold, with a diameter of 43mm. Only 28 pieces were made.

Natalie Portman以Soir de Fête系列的紅寶石鑽石項鍊,配搭Joséphine Aigrette 耳環。 Natalie Portman wore a necklace from Chaumet's Soir de Fête collection and Joséphine Aigrette earrings. The necklace is white gold set with 15 pear-shaped Mozambique rubies (30 cts), 20 pear-shaped and brillant-cut diamonds (11 cts).

說到高級珠寶品牌,Chaumet絕對榜上有名,它更是 全歐洲歷史最悠久及最尊貴的珠寶品牌之一。 品牌成立至今已接近兩個半世紀,但很多北美洲人對 來自法國的Chaumet仍然不太熟悉。品牌首席執行長JeanMarc Mansvelt對此抱平常心看待,儘管過去四年半他花了 很大努力去喚醒這位「睡美人」。 加國Maison Birks被選定成為品牌進軍北美市場的首 個銷售點,比美國還要早一步。這個決定或多或少帶點忌 諱成分—Chaumet於1927年首度進軍美國市場,兩年後便 遇上股災及經濟大蕭條,結果要打退堂鼓;1980年捲土重 來卻又再次失望離場,Chaumet自此決定徹離美國市場至 今。 自1907年起,品牌的總部便設於巴黎的12 Rue Place Vendome,這裡前身是一家酒店,乃著名作曲家蕭邦於 1849年與太太度過生命最後4個月的地方。除了蕭邦, Chaumet跟很多名字響噹噹的人物都有著淵源。事實上, Chaumet的崛起全靠拿破崙及約瑟芬皇后,它是法蘭西第 一帝國的御用珠寶工匠。Mansvelt說:「拿破崙的皇冠及寶 劍都是Chaumet的作品。」 Chaumet悠久而又豐富的歷史不容置疑。他們的資料 庫收藏了品牌過去250年、超過20噸的文件,單是貴客們 訂製的首飾設計草圖便多達62,000幅。Mansvelt說:「從這 些資料我們可以知道某日某時,畢加索跟太太Olga曾經來 過Chaumet。我們的記錄可謂鉅細無遺。」

Taylor Hill出席康城影展時,正是穿戴Soir de Fête系列的鑽石項鍊。 Taylor Hill illuminated the red carpet at Cannes with a necklace in white gold fully paved with diamonds (55,37 cts) from Chaumet's Soir de Fête collection.

The name Chaumet may not be on the tips of tongues when it comes to high-end jewellery. Yet it happens to be one of the oldest and one of the most prestigious jewellers in all of Europe. For almost two and a half centuries Chaumet, as far as brand identity goes, has been one of France’s best kept secrets, at least to most North Americans. And that does not seem to bother CEO Jean-Marc Mansvelt (pictured opposite page) one bit, who for the last four and a half years has been trying, he says, “to wake up the sleeping beauty.” As part of the plan to reinvigorate the name, Maison Birks in Canada was chosen as the first stop ahead of any U.S. expansion. Perhaps that decision was more about superstition than anything else. When Chaumet first attempted to penetrate the U.S. it was ill timed: it was 1927, two years before the stock market crash and the Great Depression. So they just packed up their bags and went back to France. Another unfortunate incident followed in the 1980s that had Chaumet exit the American market for good. Until now. The famed French jeweller has been headquartered at 12 Rue Place Vendome in Paris since 1907, the same address that composer Chopin spent the last four months of his life when it was a hotel in 1849. But the Chaumet name has been associated with many more luminaries than just a famous Polishborn, French composer. In fact the start of Chaumet is very much attributed to Napoleon and empress Josephine. Chaumet was, in fact, the jeweller to the first French Empire. Says Mansvelt: “The crown of Napoleon was a Chaumet piece; the sword of Napoleon was a Chaumet piece.” The rich and wealthy history of Chaumet is evident. Their archives alone hold more than 20 tons of documents, including some 62,000 drawings of jewellery pieces for their coterie of rich clients that spans almost 250 years. Says Mansvelt: “We can see in these archives at a certain time on a certain day when Pablo Picasso came to Chaumet with Olga. We have records of everything.”

Chaumet位於12 Rue Place Vendome的總部將於2020年1月經大肆翻新後重開。 In January 2020, the iconic Chaumet address at 12 Place Vendome will re-open after extensive renovations.

Mansvelt進軍北美洲的鴻圖大計終於成事,他計劃如 何在這個競爭激烈的市場突圍而出?「Chaumet本身已經與 別不同,有著悠久的歷史背景,成立至今接近250年,年資 比起Cartier及Van Cleef [and Arpels]足足超過一個世紀,跟 Boucheron相比亦多出將近一個世紀,對很多人來說,這點十 分重要。從Chaumet以噸計的資料中,可以知道我們的客人 包括很多知名的美國貴族及藝術家。我們絕不墨守成規,經常 發表不同的設計。很多珠寶品牌可以讓人盡情炫富,但這並非 Chaumet的風格。」 繼2017及2018年分別於北京及東京進行展覽後, Chaumet在今年夏天於法國蔚藍海岸的摩納哥展出一系列典藏 珍寶,展品由博物館、富豪家族及皇室借出,部分更是首次對 外展出。這個名為 《Chaumet in Majesty: Jewels of Sovereigns Since 1780》的展覽,焦點落在珠寶及藝術之間的邂逅,而冠 冕則是歷久不衰的配飾。展出的珍品包括50頂冠冕及250件珠 寶精品,完美展現品牌在過去兩個半世紀的精湛工藝及設計。 2020年1月,Chaumet位於12 Rue Place Vendome的總 部經大肆翻新後重開。「回顧Chaumet的悠久歷史,就好像回 顧藝術的歷史。」Mansvelt說:「珠寶臻品由一幅草圖開始,它 塑造了品牌的風格及時代的潮流,仿似同時回顧法國的歷史。 客人今天花一千歐羅買一枚Bee My Love戒指,其實亦買了品 牌在法國的悠久歷史。」 Chaumet為什麼不選擇跟其他珠寶品牌如Tiffany般,在加 國開設專賣店?答案很簡單,因為Birks是一個明確的合作好 伙伴。Mansvelt說:「我們(Chaumet 及 Birks)都正在轉型, 大家並肩同行,這就是有趣的地方。再者,Tiffany是無人不曉 的美國品牌,而我們要打入市場並非一蹴而至,Birks能為我 們的品牌增加可信性。就好像Van Cleef,一開始也是跟Birks 合作,現在已開設了專賣店。」 期待Chaumet於未來數年在加國大展拳腳。目前,品牌 的設計只於Maison Birks獨家發售。

Yet Mansvelt’s mandate is for Chaumet to finally make its mark in North America’s highly competitive high-end jewellery market. And how does he plan to accomplish this feat? “We will stand out by being ourself,” says Mansvelt, “because we have a great history. For many people, knowing that Chaumet has survived for almost 250 years—a century more than Cartier, a century more than Van Cleef [and Arpels], almost a century more than Boucheron—is important to them. If you dive into the tons of documents at Chaumet you will find so many famous American families and artists who were all clients of Chaumet. But Chaumet has always done things differently. It has never been a brand for those who want to show off their wealth. Other brands may be more in your face. That is not Chaumet.” After Beijing in 2017 and Tokyo in 2018, Chaumet went to Monaco in the French Riviera this past summer to unveil rare historical pieces—loaned by museums, grand families or royalty—some of which are being seen publicly for the first time. Titled Chaumet in Majesty: Jewels of Sovereigns Since 1780, the exhibition highlighted the ongoing dialogue between jewellery and the arts, rendering the tiara a continually reinvented accessory. The exhibit included 50 tiaras (some models of which are pictured left), 250 jewels, all summarizing two and a half centuries of creations. And in January 2020 the iconic Chaumet address at 12 Place Vendome will re-open after extensive renovations. “When you navigate the very long story of Chaumet,” says Mansvelt, “you are navigating the history of art. Jewellery is at first a drawing, the style of the maison and the current styles of the times. You are navigating the history of France. Even today buying our 1,000 Euro Bee My Love ring, you are also buying our long history in France.” So with the expansion into Canada, why not a standalone store like other more known jewellery brands like Tiffany have done. Easy answer. That is because Birks seemed like an obvious partner. “We [Chaumet And Birks] were both going through our own mutual transformations, says Mansvelt. “That is what is interesting; both brands are on a parallel journey at the same time. “Also Tiffany is an American brand. Everyone knows the name. So we realize our journey will take a bit longer. But launching in Birks gives us certain credibility in this market. It is very much like what Van Cleef did. They started at a Birks and now they are opening standalone stores.” Expect to see Chaumet follow suit in the next few years. In the meantime, their pieces are available exclusively at Maison Birks.

曾幾何時,鍾嘉欣是宅男討論區的女神BB,嘉欣BB封號深入民心。 經歷十數年娛樂圈磨練,當年廿歲未夠的渾沌BB,進化成勇敢女子。四年 前,遇上命中注定的人,閃電成為人妻,真正擁有兩個可愛BB,建立幸福的四 口之家。 嘉欣媽媽說︰「全職照顧小朋友,比以前拍劇辛苦十倍,也不會有假期,卻 更切實地感覺自己活著。」媽媽這個角色,才是嘉欣的最佳演繹。

出道的苦日子 當選華姐冠軍,隨即由加拿大移居香港,全身投入演藝圈,生活三百六十 度改變,完全沒空間適應。回顧十五年前初出道的自己,嘉欣也忍不住自嘲: 「拍第一套劇《皆大歡喜》時,我佔戲百多二百集,但每日開工,除了埋位拍攝之 外,我只會和媽媽坐在一角讀劇本,收工便走,完全不懂跟別人溝通。」 只有二十歲,沒有受過演藝訓練,卻背負主角的重擔,惟有默默努力。「那 些年,自己的廣東話差,拍劇壓力大,日以繼夜,水土不服,臉上狂爆暗瘡, 好辛苦。跟鄭伊健拍《隨時候命》,演技生硬,加上性格不夠主動,曾經被伊健 取笑:『你是不是啞巴?』」 結婚生子後,嘉欣重踏演藝圈,發現那段天昏地暗的人生,造就她成為堅 毅的太太和媽媽。「當時忙到一個點,沒想過將來,只知道機會得來不易,一定 要珍惜,努力做到最好,現在回看便知道,做人要捱過苦,才會找到突破,正 如蝴蝶也要破繭才變得美麗,當年拍劇的日子雖然很難捱,但我學習到很多, 所以很懷念。」。

Linda Chung is the poster girl for netizens, a “babe”in the online world. Chung, who made it in showbiz before the age of 20, is now her own person. Four years ago, she met “the one” and got married. Now a mother of two, she is living her happily ever after. “Being a full-time mom is 10 times harder than being on a set,” says Chung, “but I feel so much more alive.”

The Tough earLy years after winning the Miss Chinese International Pageant in 2004, Chung moved to hong Kong from Vancouver to pursue a career in showbiz. recalling those first days 15 years ago, Chung says she thought she was awkward. “I was in nearly 200 episodes of my first sitcom Virtues of Harmony. every day on the set, I would get into position and then hide in a corner with my mother to go through the script. We left when my parts were done. I totally didn’t know how to mix with fellow cast members.” Becoming a-list at just 20, and without any formal actor training, she had to work hard and quietly. “Those days, my Cantonese was very bad,” she says. “The pressure of filming day and night was tremendous, and it took a while to adjust to living in a different place. The stress showed on my face. I had a serious break-out. That was tough. When shooting Always Ready with ekin Cheng, my acting was stiff and I wasn’t outgoing. ekin often teased me: ‘you are not a mute, are you?’.” returning to showbiz after having children, Chung believes those challenges prepared her to be bold, both as a wife and a mother. “When I was wrapped up with work, I didn’t think of the future. I only knew that every opportunity was hard to come by and that I had to make the most of it and do my best. Looking back now, I realize that we have to work through challenges to find breakthroughs, just like a butterfly has to break out of its cocoon to become an object of beauty. The TV production days were challenging, but I have learned a lot. I really missed it.” ELITEGEN

MarVeLous FaMILy LIFe

當年的閃婚消息,令大家十分驚訝。嘉欣的說法 卻是:「我當時覺得不用分析太多,只需要聆聽自己的 心靈,感覺他是對的人,就決定結婚吧!」面對路人甲 乙丙諸般議論—兩人外型相不相襯,男方是甚麼背景等 等……嘉欣卻只瀟灑回應:「我不是預言家,不知道幾 十年後會怎樣,他雖然不是perfect guy,but perfect for me(他不是十全十美,但對我來說是完美的),這個理由 已很足夠。」

The news of Chung’s wedding plans came out of the blue and took everyone by surprise.

更完美的,是她婚後可以回到成長地溫哥華定居, 更快適應新婚生活。「我的家人一直在溫哥華,現在加 上我一家四口,更加開心。」近年因工作不斷加、港兩邊 走,她竟然說不疲累,「我反而覺得很精彩,結婚定居溫 哥華之後,我以為連事業也要放棄,但上天繼續給我機 會,讓我繼續發揮專長,重新找回自己的價值,求之不 得啦!」

What’s more perfect is that she settled into married life back in Vancouver, where she grew up. “My family is always in Vancouver. Now that our family of four is here, too, we are all much happier.”

五月份嘉欣舉家回港之旅,她既忙工作又頻頻與友 敍舊,加上有丈夫Jeremy全程陪伴,一定是最精彩的一 次。

“I didn’t think we should overthink it, just listen to your heart,” she says. “If I felt he was the one, then why not get married?” as to the chatter about whether they were a perfect match, or what her other half did for a living, she says: “I can’t gaze into a crystal ball and predict what it will be like decades later. he may not be a perfect guy, but he’s perfect for me. That’s enough.”

These days she has to fly back and forth between Canada and hong Kong for work, so one would think she is always tired. au contraire! “I feel my life is full. settling in Vancouver after we got married, I thought I would have to give up my work. But the divine has given me opportunities to do what I do well and discover my self-worth. That’s icing on the cake.” The whole family travelled to hong Kong in May. she was busy with work and catching up with friends. her husband Jeremy was with her all the time.

「以前丈夫每年只會陪我回一次香港,留一個星期 便走,今次難得陪我一個月,是最久的一次。期間完成 了很多計劃,包括拍攝廣告歌MV。」拍MV應該是行程重 點,皆因這首是她第一次為女兒創作的歌。

“In the past, my husband only came back to hong Kong with me once a year, and stayed only a week. This time, he stayed for a whole month. I wrapped up a few projects, including shooting a music video for a commercial.”

為兒女奉獻一切

The music video was the highlight of the trip as it was the first time Chung wrote a song for her daughter, Kelly, titled Mommy I Love You So.

她一手包辦曲詞唱的〈Mommy I Love You So〉,中 文版〈做你的晨曦〉,本來是給女兒Kelly的安眠曲。 「每晚Kelly睡前,我都會在她耳邊哼歌,某日,我 看著她可愛的臉蛋,不其然就哼出這首歌來,想著我 對她的愛,也想起我媽媽怎樣愛我,邊唱邊感動得流眼 淚,於是索性寫成一首完整歌曲,填上歌詞,後來有廣 告商找我談工作,客戶對這首歌很有興趣,便將它定為 主題曲,還拍成MV,留為紀念。」 成為嘉欣媽媽後,她將自己一切都奉獻給兒女,事 無大小均以他們為先。「今次雖然留港一個月,但仍無時 間約見所有朋友,因為需要遷就小朋友作息,而且日日 都是玩玩玩的話,太多刺激,小朋友晚上就不願睡,要 給他們安靜空間,才可訓練思考力和集中力。」

DeVoTeD To her ChILDreN “I sang her this song every night to put her to sleep,” she says. “one day, I was humming the song as I looked at her lovely face, and thought about how much I loved her and how my mother loved me. It moved me to tears. so I wrote the full song and lyrics. When I was discussing a project with an advertiser, the song was picked, and a music video was made. It was a great memento.” Fully into her role as a mom, Chung says her children will always come first. “although we stayed a month in hong Kong this time, there wasn’t enough time to catch up with all our friends because we had to schedule around the children’s rest time. There was so much fun every day that the kids were too hyped up to sleep at night. We needed to give them time to quiet down. “a few years ago, I worked with Damian [Lau]. he suggested I

她不是教育專家,這套想法純屬個人參透。「幾年 前跟松哥(劉松仁)合作拍劇,他建議我學打坐,學習靜 下來跟自己和宇宙溝通,思維會更清晰,嘗試一段時間 後,朋友發現我說話比以前多,而且有條理,亦少了焦 慮,所以我相信,安靜對小朋友成長很有益處。」 為了小朋友健康成長,她甚至勇敢接受挑戰。「去 年懷孕七個月時,聽聞朋友決定在家中生產,說會對媽 媽和BB健康更好,我們跟助產士商量後,也決定讓兒子 Jared在家中出世。」 聽來動魄驚心,但嘉欣媽媽只是輕描淡寫,「BB是 上天的禮物,忍少少痛算甚麼?聽從身體的自然反應, 完全不用藥物,小朋友會更健康。」她愈來愈崇尚天然, 現在唯一的娛樂是追看網上的醫學、營養、烹飪頻道。 「我是Netflix訂戶,但看健康特輯多過電視劇,唯一會看 的電視劇是《皆大歡喜》,因為想Kelly學廣東話,她最喜 歡的兒歌,便是家燕姐唱的主題曲,一聽到就開心到跳 舞。」 嘉欣重視小朋友的生活質素。「在加拿大生活,對他 們最好。香港的入學面試壓力大得恐怖,我不想他們自 尊受損,童年太重要,我不希望他們有陰影。」 至於工作,她說︰「我依然很喜歡演戲,要我放棄, 我會好傷心,如果有好劇本,一定會演;丈夫一向鼓勵 我做喜歡的事,他說:『做你喜歡的工作,才會快樂, 如果你不快樂,這個家也不會快樂。』接工作的前提是時 間、地點都配合得到,例如之前客串《再創世紀》,監製 找我之前,我也在想:『如果TVB劇集可以去加拿大拍 外景的話,我便可以客串。』不久之後,《再創世紀》監製 竟然真的找我客串加拿大拍攝的戲份,原來念力可以成 真,好神奇!」看著她的笑容,肯定現在活得實在的鍾嘉 欣,比當年追逐名利的鍾嘉欣更快樂。

learn meditation to quiet myself and connect with the universe and think more clearly. after trying it for a while, my friends found that I was less anxious. That’s why I think quiet time is good for children.” she will take on any challenges for the well-being of her children. seven months into her pregnancy last year, she heard that a friend was going to have a home birth because it was better for mother and child. after discussions with midwives, she decided to have a home birth for her son Jared. “Babies are a gift from god,” she says. “The pain is nothing. Listen to your body, with no medication, and the baby will be healthier.” she is very much into natural medicine, and her favourite pastime these days are online health and cooking channels. “I subscribe to Netflix, and I watch health documentaries more than dramas. The only series I still watch is Virtues of Harmony because I would like Kelly to learn Cantonese. The song she loves the most is the theme song of the show, sung by Nancy [sit]. she starts dancing along when the song plays. “It’s best for them to grow up in Canada. Interviewing for hong Kong schools is far too stressful. I don’t want them to feel bad about themselves. Childhood is too important. I don’t want them to be scared.” as for her work, she says: “I still like acting. It would be very sad if I had to give it up. If there is a good script, I will take it on. My husband encourages me to do what I enjoy. you are happy when you do what you enjoy. If you are not happy, the family won’t be happy. “But the work has to be at the right time and the right place, as in the case of taking a small part in Another Era. Before the producer approached me, I was thinking: ‘If a TVB production is done in Canada, then I can play a part.’ Not long after that, the producer asked me to get involved in the Canadian location shoot. see, positive thinking does work. It’s amazing.” From her big smile, it’s clearly evident that Chung is truly having the time of her life.

Grand illusions Bottega Veneta launches a his and hers fragrance inspired by Italy’s landscape 世界知名意大利品牌Bottega Veneta以織紋皮革製品最為人熟悉,而品牌對藝術的追 求同時呈現於香氛之中,說的是一對全新香氛—Illusione For Her女士香氛及Illusione for Him男士香氛。 香氛的靈感源自意大利的歷史、風貌及當地出產的原材料。男、女版香氛由三位調香 大師攜手打造,以意大利柑橘作主要元素,並以不同形式出現。 通常一對推出的男、女裝香氛都會有若干相同元素,Illusione亦不例外,不過形式稍 有不同。今次調香師在男、女裝香氛加入了不同柑橘科的花和果來營造各具特色的香氣。 女性版本由調香師Annick Menardo及Amandine Clerc-Marie打造,糅合橙花及佛手柑的清 香,綠色無花果葉帶來暖意,橄欖樹及零陵香豆則令香氣更圓潤。 男士版本由Antoine Maisondieu打造,結合了檸檬及苦橙的香氣。香脂冷杉及白色雪 松,帶來樹脂味的剛陽之氣,同時混合了香根草的活力及零陵香豆的感性。 男、女裝均用上線條簡潔的厚玻璃香水瓶,配圓形的膠木紋瓶蓋。Illusione For Her呈 帶銅的粉紅色,Illusione for Him則是鮮綠色。

Renowned Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta may be most known for its woven leather goods, but it is just as artful in the interplay of scents, as shown by its new duo of fragrances, Illusione for Her and Illusione for Him. The fragrances are inspired by the heritage, landscape and extraordinary raw materials of Italy. Three master perfumers came on board to create the scents, and for the key element, they have chosen the Italian citrus—with a twist. His and hers scents usually have one or two common ingredients to make for a complementary pair, but in this case, the chosen element is manifested through various stages of growth and different members of the fruit family. The female version, crafted by perfumers Annick Menardo and Amandine Clerc-Marie, features orange flowers and bergamot. Vegetal green fig adds warmth to the floral heart, and the dry down is anchored by a base of olive wood and tonka bean. 加藉模特兒Simon Nessmann是Illusione電視廣告 的男主角,女主角則是意大利美女Vittoria Ceretti。

The male version, created by perfumer Antoine Maisondieu, is spiced with lemon and bitter orange essence. Woody fir balsam and white cedarwood provide a resinous masculinity leading to an energetic blend of vibrant vetiver and sensual tonka bean.

Canadian model Simon Nessmann is the male face of Illusione in the video campaign, opposite Italian beauty Vittoria Ceretti.

Both scents are housed in weighty glass flacons with clean architectural lines. Her version is a dreamy coppery pink, playing contrast to the luminous green for him. A circular Bakelite-inspired textured cap crowns the bottle.

Fendi最近宣佈邀請中港韓紅人、歌手 及作曲人王嘉爾(Jackson Wang)成為中國 品牌大使,並合作推出Capsule系列。 由Silvia Venturini Fendi當創作主腦, 全新系列把Jackson的型格及充滿個人化的 風格跟Fendi DNA完美結合,每件單品都充 滿時尚、奢華,突破時裝與音樂之間的界 線。 星尚Fendi對你來說有什麼意義?

Fendi recently announced the launch of a special Capsule Collection created in collaboration with Jackson Wang, popular singer, songwriter and the maison’s brand ambassador in China. Under the creative direction of Silvia Venturini Fendi, the new collection, Fendi X Jackson Wang, combines Wang’s cool and recognizable style with the Fendi DNA, giving life to modern, luxury pieces that break the boundaries between fashion and music. eG: What does Fendi mean to you?

JW: Fendi除了是出色的品牌,亦充滿創造 自我潮流及歷史的觸覺。我們都忠於自己的 風格,不隨波逐流,不斷創新並自我挑戰。

JW: Apart from the amazing brand, to me it’s a vision of creating our own trend, creating our own history. We stick to our own style. We don’t follow trends. We keep creating new things and keep challenging ourselves.

星尚是什麼啟發你創作Capsule系列?

eG: What was the inspiration behind this capsule collection?

JW︰我們跟Silvia Fendi都希望做一些全新 的東西,不想回望過去或參考以往的創作。 有一日我突然想到,Fendi從未推出過絲絨 系列,我們何不打造Fendi史上第一個全以 絲絨這種材質的系列?有了這個意念後,於 圖案、設計及logo都秉承「少即是多」的原 則,保持簡單的風格,沒有太多瘋狂的東 西。為了表現這個系列的內在美,因此整個 系列的產品都是黑色。

JW: With Silvia Fendi, we are trying to make something new. We don’t want to look back or take a reference from the past. I was just thinking one day that Fendi hasn’t ever released a collection that is all about velvet. So why not, why don’t we create a first-ever Fendi velvet collection. And then, for the pattern, the design and the logo we just focused more on less is more. Nothing too crazy; we kept it simple; we want to bring out the inner beauty of the capsule. The first-ever velvet collection in all black.

星尚Capsule系列中你最喜歡哪一件單品?

JW: My favourite piece is… I would say every piece. Actually, each piece is very similar in a way, the pattern, the material, the velvet. It’s the same material and the same pattern but on each with a different design. We have sandals, the tracksuit, the tuxedo suit, the T-shirt. And we have the Baguette and the clutch. We have a lot of stuff. And I love each one.

星尚在你心目中誰是Fendiman? JW︰唏!我就是Fendiman。

eG: Who is the Fendiman for you? JW: Hey…Hey! I am the Fendiman. Fendi x Jackson Wang collection is available at the Fendi boutique in Holt Renfrew ELITEGEN

Elvis Presley 白色連身衣(Jumpsuit)造型是「貓王」Elvis Presley的經典造 型,寬肩膀與喇叭褲剪裁讓他更顯魁梧男人味。衣服上的 閃爍珠飾與刺繡是另一特色,讓這位「搖滾樂之王」永遠成 為舞台上的焦點。

He made the white jumpsuit famous. Period. The bling and embroidery ensured that the King of Rock ’n’ Roll commanded attention on stage.

百搭白T恤

THE T-sHIRT

男士衣櫃中,一定要有和一定會有的,除了白恤衫,還有充 滿可塑性的白Tee。

Apart from a clean white dress shirt, a multi-functional white T-shirt should be a staple in every man’s wardrobe.

香港的賴秉堅(阿堅)更開了「Imperfect Atelier」白T-shirt專賣 店,為男士搜羅世界各地優質白T恤。但為何在芸芸白色時裝單品 中,只取這一件白T-shirt?他笑說:「白T恤整潔、乾淨、沒有局 限。它未必一定要當主角,卻能助你突出自己,既可拿來襯西裝 褸,配搭短褲亦成,充滿可能性。」

Kin Lai runs Imperfect Atelier, which specializes in good quality Ts, sourced from around the world. Why Ts? says Lai: “Because a white T is neat and clean and has no limits. It may not be the star, but it helps you stand out. It can be worn with a suit jacket or shorts. It offers lots of possibilities.”

白Tee講求細節,選擇時需要細心留意,當中大有學問, 賴秉堅說:「買T恤首看質地,由埃及棉(Egyptian Long Fiber Cotton)、精梳棉(Combed Cotton)這類長纖維編織出來的T恤,質 地較順滑且耐穿,親膚度較高。其次看T恤的『支數』和『磅數』,前 者數字愈高代表T恤愈薄,磅數也相對輕,穿起來雖然舒適,卻很 容易出現『激凸』的窘況,一般磅數較高的白Tee,相對挺身厚實。」 當然,編織方法、車工和剪裁同樣重要:「一般機器編織出來的T 恤,纖維經用力拉扯而相對硬淨,但某些日本和德國製的圓筒Tee 由紡輪(Loopwheel)編織,製作緩慢,出品卻柔軟舒適,保持棉 質本身的特色。另外,若不想衣領部分變形,選擇羅紋領(ribbed collar)設計會更耐穿。」

Details are crucial for a white T, so one must look closely and choose wisely. “Quality is most important,” emphasizes Lai. “The Ts made with Egyptian long-fibre cotton and combed cotton are smoother and more durable. They feel good on the skin. “Then you have to look at the count and the ounce. The higher the count, the thinner and lighter the T. It’s more comfortable to wear, but it can be embarrassingly fitting. Ts of higher ounces are thicker and keep their form better.” Lai also says weaving, cutting and sewing technigues are equally important: “Machine-woven Ts are sturdier as the fibres have been stretched. some Ts from Japan and Germany are loopwheel woven. The process is slow but it keeps the characteristics of the cotton and the Ts are very soft and comfortable. Ribbed collars will be better for those who don’t want misshapen collars after a few washes.”

白 T-shirT 保養教室

Care for your white t 洗滌:若白T-shirt不慎蘸上污跡, 應立即用清水擦拭,洗衣前再用梳 打粉和洗衣粉開水浸泡半小時,即 可去跡;若衣領上有黃色汗跡,可 使用檸檬汁去除。 固形:不想白T-shirt領子變成彎彎 曲曲的「荷葉領」,謹記在脫衣時不 要拉扯領子,並使用闊身衣架掛好。 防毛粒:放進洗衣機或多或少總會 有摩擦產生靜電,讓T恤的纖維捲起 來形成毛粒。洗衣時必須把衣服翻 轉放進洗衣袋,便會減少產生毛粒 的機會。

Washing: If it is stained, dab the stain with water immediately. Before washing, mix baking soda and detergent into warm water and soak for half an hour to remove the stain. Use lemon juice to remove yellow sweat stains on collars and under the arms. Shaping: To keep the collars in shape, avoid pulling the collars when undressing. Use wide hangers to hang the T. Pilling: Machine-washing a T will produce a certain level of static from rubbing, which will lead to pilling. Turn the T inside out and wash in a laundry bag to avoid this.

讓光線來設計 悼貝聿銘

Let there be Light

說起貝聿銘,香港人特別熟悉;就算不知道《英雄本色》的經典 場口新寧大廈是出自他的手筆,中銀大廈也必定深入民心。這位首 個獲得普立茲克獎的華裔建築大師在5月16日以102歲高壽離世,標 誌著一個傳奇的落幕。 何以一個出生於廣州的男孩子,能成為靡聲國際的建築師?答 案很簡單,因為貝家不是普通人家,而是當時的名門望族,貝聿銘 的父親貝祖貽更是中國銀行的創辦人之一。因為戰爭、父親工作調 職、母親猝然離世等原因,出生於廣州的貝聿銘曾到蘇州、香港、 上海等地居住,最後輾轉移居美國,在安穩的日子中,貝聿銘分別 在麻省理工學院及哈佛大學取得建築學學士學位及碩士學位。

I.M. Pei, the first Asian architect to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, passed away peacefully on May 16 at the age of 102. It is the death of a legend. Pei is famous the world over, especially to those in Hong Kong. The landmark Bank of China Tower in the financial district and Sunning Plaza in Causeway Bay were both prominently featured in John Woo’s internationally acclaimed action film A Better Tomorrow. Pei’s ancestry traces back to the Ming dynasty, when his family moved from Anhui province to Suzhou. The family made their wealth in medicinal herbs, then proceeded to join the ranks of the scholargentry, a class which stressed the importance of helping the less fortunate. His father, Tsuyee Pei, was a senior executive at the Bank of China. When Pei was 10, his father was promoted and the family moved to Shanghai. Pei lived in a number of cities before moving to the United States to attend university. He successfully completed his B.A. in Architecture at MIT’s Beaux-Arts school and added a Master of Architecture degree from Harvard.

美秀美術館猶如人間仙境,完美結合現代主義及傳統日式風格。 The Miho Museum is a paradise, fusing modernism with Japanese style.


香港人最熟悉的中銀大廈,是 貝聿銘的代表作之一。 The Bank of China Tower is a Hong Kong landmark.

畢業不久,貝聿銘便進入Webb and Knapp擔任Architecture Director,同時成立以個人名義運作的建築事務所Pei Cobb Freed & Partners(前身為I.M. Pei & Associates)。初期作品大多在美國,類型 涉獵公共項目、圖書館、藝術館等。其中最廣為人熟悉的,是建成於 1978年的美國華盛頓國家美術館東館,貝聿銘以混凝土為主要物料, 設計出一幢正面看起來為「H」形,實則以幾何線條組成的建築物,簡 潔明淨,呈現出強烈現代主義的風格,輕易融入周邊環境。 1982年,貝聿銘在北京設計了第一幢在中國的建築—香山飯店, 以現代主義的手法融合中國風,這次嘗試效果出色,取得了很好的平 衡,也是中國改革開放後極具代表性的作品。談起回到小時候成長的 地方,不得不提於1989年完工的中銀大廈,它不但成為了香港中區摩 天大廈林立的其中一個地標,同時也代表了貝聿銘建築師生平最崇尚 的設計—「讓光線來設計」 ;雖說是商業大廈,貝聿銘在裡面設計了中 庭,盡可能讓光線進入建築內。 實踐「讓光線來設計」這個宗旨的,還有貝聿銘生平之中最具爭議 性的作品—羅浮宮。當年的羅浮宮重建計劃,法國文化部部長跳過正 常招標程序,找來貝聿銘主理,他在入口處設計了一個金字塔形狀的 透明建築,引來超過90%的法國人反對,認為洋溢現代主義的金字塔 與羅浮宮本身格格不入,後來建築在軟硬兼施之下順利建成,一年又 一年過去,已成為羅浮宮不可或缺的一部分。 貝聿銘除了透過建築展現理性的一面,有時還散發出詩意。看看 他最初期與陳其寬共同設計的作品—台灣臺中市東海大學路思義教堂 就是一例,簡單的大筆一揮,為教堂披上令人難忘的外衣,數十年來 成為遊客不能錯過的景點。另一個詩意代表,必定是建成於1997年的 日本滋賀縣甲賀市美秀美術館,走過長長的隧道,眼前就出現一條穿 越森林的吊橋,走過這裡就來到位處於森林中的美秀美術館。美秀美 術館以和式格調融入現代主義,兩者取得完美的和諧,來到這裡感覺 異常平靜,猶如置身世外桃源,貝聿銘的功力在這時已登巔峰。

Pei joined Webb and Knapp as its architectural director shortly after graduation in 1948, before setting up his own independent firm, I.M. Pei & Associates, in 1955. His early projects were mostly government buildings, libraries and art galleries. In 1978, Pei used mainly concrete to build the East Hall of the National Gallery in Washington, DC. The iconic ‘H’ shaped building showcases a simple and unique modernist style that blends easily into the surrounding area.

東海大學路思義教堂是貝聿銘早期作品,至今看來絕不過時。 Pei’s timeless classic: The Luce Memorial Chapel in Taichung, Taiwan.

In 1982, Pei constructed his first building in China, the Fragrant Hill Hotel in Beijing, fusing Chinese culture with a modernist style. The Hong Kong landmark Bank of China Tower was built in 1989. It represented Pei’s most appealing design framework—letting light take control of the design in an office setting. Pei’s most famous yet controversial work is arguably at the Louvre in Paris. In order to directly recruit Pei to lead the museum’s reconstruction project, the French Minister of Culture overrode the standard bidding process. When the modern glass pyramid design (a focal point in the main courtyard outside the main entrance) was unveiled, 90 per cent of French citizens were opposed. When construction was completed, it received mixed reviews. Today, it is an internationally recognized landmark. The Luce Memorial Chapel on the campus of Tunghai University in Xitun District, Taichung, Taiwan reveals the poetic side that Pei brought to architecture. The tent-shaped Christian gathering place has also become a landmark for tourists. Another epic design is the Miho Museum, located southeast of Kyoto, Japan, near the town of Shigaraki in Shiga Prefecture. Built in 1997, its suspension bridge goes right through a forest, leading directly to the museum’s main entrance. Pei’s contribution to the world’s landscape is legendary and sure to stand the test of time. In fact, Pei himself once said, “I want to bring out the best in a community and contribute something of permanent value.” Say no more.

Farg and Blanche可能是 最多合照的設計夫妻檔。 Farg and Blanche are possibly the most photographed designer couple.


Farg and Blanche跟瑞典塑膠地毯品 牌Bolon合作,用日本武士盔甲的原 理設計出一張高背椅。 Farg and Blanche worked with Swedish vinyl rug brand Bolon to make this high-back chair influenced by Samurai armour.

由瑞典脆餅Knackebrod引發靈感,再交予瑞典手製玻璃品牌 Maleras製作,實際行動愛惜本土文化。 The design duo value local culture. They were inspired by Sweden’s iconic Knackebrod crackers for this lighting collection by Swedish glassmaker Maleras.

Farg and Blanche的 Succession系列,形似麵包 的燈飾,對應百年大宅歷史。 Loaf lights from Farg and Blanche’s Succession collection reflect the history of their family home.

Farg and Blanche是夫妻檔設計組合。先生Fredrik Farg生於瑞 典,修讀設計課程之前,幼年已接受家具製作訓練,乃科班師傅一 名。太太Emma Marga Blanche同是瑞典人,但在法國長大,自幼隨 教藝術的母親看展覽,兩母女還會自製手工藝到聖誕市集擺賣。Farg 與Blanche一次同參與瑞典的設計展,又同獲邀到柏林參展。因為 Blanche的作品是一張磁石製的小,不能帶上機。Farg就決定一起 開車到柏林……就這樣成就了之後十年的設計愛情故事。 兩夫妻相處之道是這樣的—Blanche有藝術背景,思想跳脫天馬 行空;Farg有製作家具專業知識,成功將創意化成實物。Farg對生產 過程/手工感興趣,研究生產過程時,又引發出無限靈感。去到最後, 每件設計也分不清是誰的主意,兩夫妻同工同酬榮辱與共。 這對來自北歐的模範夫妻沒有依循一貫的直白簡樸設計風格,全 部設計均以出軌聞名。他們會拿木頭金屬車線,將皮革陶瓷又縛又 又焗,成就奇形怪狀質感獨特的變形家具。夫妻最新大作,是用新設 計跟太太的百年家族大宅對話,在傳統歐洲華麗大宅,注入其獨步江 湖的變種DNA。

Fredrik Farg and Emma Marga Blancheis are both designers. Husband Fredrik was born in Sweden and grew up immersed in furniture making before studying design. Wife Emma, also Swedish, grew up in France, her artistic mom often taking her to exhibitions from a young age. Not to mention making handicrafts to sell at Christmas fairs. The design duo met at a Swedish design fair and were both invited to a show in Berlin. Blancheis made a magnet stool, which she couldn’t bring onto a plane. So Farg decided to drive to Berlin with her. That was the beginning of their business and a love story—10 years and counting. Their firm Farg and Blanche is a perfect fit for the couple. Blanche comes up with wild ideas while Farg translates them into actual products. And the two simply share in the glory. One might expect the Nordic couple’s designs to be minimalist. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Their outside the box ideas like adding metal trim to timber and baking leather with ceramics to create oddly shaped and textured furniture is the kind of quirky furniture making they have become known for.

太太Blanche自幼已受藝術老師媽媽灌輸「想做就做」的精 神,21歲設計學院畢業後,毅然到南印度Tamil Nadu當老師,之 後更決定回歸祖家瑞典。原來她太公一代已經在瑞典憑設計麵包 致富!Ikea有售的瑞典脆餅Knackebrod就是她太公發明的。太 公因為脆餅大賺特賺,就搬入這間建於1889年的大宅。下舖上 居,下面是麵包工房,上面是豪華住家。Farg and Blanche覺得 自己家族原來有此華麗背景,何不將自己設計搬入大宅?於是這 個名為The Baker's House的展覽,就在今年的斯德哥爾摩設計 周出爐。

Blanche was always encouraged by her art teacher mother to “just do it.” When she graduated from design school at 21, she travelled to south india to be a teacher before settling in Sweden, where her greatgrandfather made a fortune as a baker. He was known for inventing the Swedish cracker knackebrod, which is still sold at ikea. She moved into the grand mansion built in 1889 by her great-grandfather, which still serves as a bakery, with living quarters up top. Farg and Blanche came up with the idea to put their designs into the family’s heritage home? So they launched The Baker’s House exhibition at this year’s Stockholm Design Week.

Farg and Blanche paid tribute to their family’s story with design, and used hand-made glass discs to mimic the dimpled surfaces of the Swedish crackers. They also took inspiration from the centuryold process of hanging up the crackers to dry after baking, and strung the glass discs together to create lighting. The glass pieces were stained with vibrant colours in fun shapes. They were made by renowned Swedish glassware brand Maleras, which boasts more than 100 years in business. The ornamental star-shaped floor boards of the 130-year-old house is an art form in itself. So Farg and Blanche designed a timber table replicating that design on its surface. The intriguing loaf-shaped lights on the staircase are also reminders of the house’s baking history. The second floor is dotted with sofas and coffee tables designed by the couple. The sofas were made with a wood tailoring technique that they invented. And they don’t seem out of place in the heritage house.

BuNDliNg CREATiviTy WiTH ONE MiND The couple’s studio in Sodermalm, Stockholm, is more like a furniture lab than a showroom or an office. in the lab, there are lots of materials and machines. They can cut leather and then nail it to a timber board with a nail gun to make a leather stool in no time. The unique part takes place when they tie a rope tightly around the stool and then bake it in an oven. After baking, the rope is loosened, leaving behind a tie mark, not unlike grill marks from barbecuing a chicken. Fashion label Comme des garçons loves them so much they exhibit them in their retail shops.


除了皮家具,Farg and Blanche還將此法用在陶 瓷上,紥實後再焗。Succession陶瓷系列外觀更有最 organic的質感,就像西蘭花椰菜花般。不過碗碟內裡 一樣平滑,方便清洗。這些花巧的餐具外表大膽離經 叛道,實質上入得焗爐微波爐洗碗碟機,完全滿足現 代生活。 Farg and Blanche笑言從不買任何設計書,買也 是買時裝書。Farg最愛Hussein Chalayan,時裝令他 對裁縫剪裁非常感興趣。也因此令他們發展出wood tailoring / metal stitching的技術,將夾板甚至金屬視為 布料,放到一部特製衣車上,像縫衫一樣「縫」出他們 的家具。上面縫線既是結構亦是外觀裝飾。兩口子覺 得將一軟一硬的物料縫在一起實在奇妙。到日本小住 三個月,他們發覺這種軟硬結合的設計模式,原來日 本人早就用在武士盔甲上。離開日本後,他們又用武 士盔甲的原理跟布料設計出一張盔甲椅子,安坐於內 的人有如被柔軟盔甲包裹。 Farg and Blanche就是這樣,用自己的實驗室將 傳統智慧、手工跟大膽創意結合。製作出踩界家具, 設計同時對應小眾,又適合大量生產。造就一個設 計、手工、奇想、傳統與現代的愛情故事。

Farg and Blanche are greatly influenced by fashion design, which inspires their interest in developing wood tailoring and metal stitching techniques. They spent three months in Japan where they discovered that hard and soft designs have long been integrated in making samurai armour. Now the duo treat wood and metal as if they were fabrics, putting them on a special machine that “sews” furniture. Farg and Blanche is a modern love story marrying design and artistry with wild ideas and tradition. Their bold artistry might only appeal to a niche market yet they are ready for mass production.

在日本住了三個月,從武士盔甲得到靈感,發展出metal stitching技 術,將軟硬結合。 After spending three months in Japan, the couple took inspiration from samurai armour to develop the metal stitching technique. ELITEGEN

達利的奇幻秘境

The famed surrealist caught between reality and delusion Story | Iris Yim Photography | Chali-Rosso Art Gallery

溫哥華又迎來了西班牙超現實大師薩爾瓦多達利(Salvador Dalí)的作品了。 由Chali-Rosso Art Gallery及F.I.N.E Art in the City Foundation 主辦的達利藝術展(Definitely Dali Exhibition),將世界級藝術家達利 的原創作品帶到溫哥華。 Chali-Rosso Art Gallery今年已是第六年主辦達利作品展。於 「Definitely Dali」展出的達利原創作品,數量是溫哥華歷來之最,當 中最大亮點是在溫哥華市中心街角豎立的兩尊達利的大型雕塑︰估 值為280萬的 《Space Venus》 和估值為120萬的 《Dalinian Dancer》 , 不管是街上走過的行人,或是遠方旅客均可駐足欣賞,讓達利的奇 幻世界展現在溫哥華的天空下,展示達利三度空間的獨特藝術語 言。展出時間為2019年5月17日至10月1日,歷時四個多月。可惜 在展覽期間,《Space Venus》的部分組件被盜。 至於其他一百多件達利原創作品,包括小件雕塑與畫作,將永 久收藏於Chali-Rosso Art Gallery。售出藝術品的部分收益將捐贈予 溫哥華的「Recovery Through Art」組織。

The works of world-renowned Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí have returned to Vancouver courtesy of the Chali-Rosso Art Gallery. Partnering with F.I.N.E Art in the City Foundation, Definitely Dali exhibits two massive sculptures (Space Venus, valued at $2.8 million; and Dalinian Dancer at $1.2 million) at two intersections in downtown Vancouver, where locals and tourists can experience for free the wacky surrealism of Dalí. But don’t miss out on seeing the other 100 pieces of his work, including smaller pieces and paintings on exhibit at the Chali-Rosso gallery. Public donations, as well as a percentage of Chali-Rosso gallery sales, will go to the Recovery Through Art Society, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support innovative mental health and addiction recovery, and growth through art. This exhibit is a showcase of the surrealist’s most symbolic iconography: anti-gravity flying objects, melting clocks, space elephants, angels, snails and butterflies, appearing in such works as Nobility of Time, Triumphant Elephant and the Snail and the Angel.

展覽以「Definitely Dali」為標題,皆因展覽中的雕塑 品都帶有達利最具代表性的圖象和符號:如物體向四周無 重心地飛開、融化的時鐘、太空象、天使、蝸牛、蝴蝶及 內心隱藏很多秘密的抽屜人等等,都是達利最常採用且饒 有寓意的創作元素。這些象徵性的圖形不斷出現在其作 品中,如《Nobility of Time》、《Triumphant Elephant》和 《Snail and the Angel》等。 超現實主義是二十世紀在法國開始的藝術潮流,源於 達達主義,理論背景為弗洛伊德的精神分析學說和帕格森 的直覺主義。強調直覺和潛意識心理,呈現人內心深處的 形象世界,試圖將現實與本能、潛意識與夢幻的經驗相結 合,不受邏輯和理性支配而憑本能與想象來描繪超現實的 題材,表現想象領域中的夢幻世界。 達利的藝術總是呈現雙重性:剛與柔、真實與虛幻, 以對比的方式來表現兩種不同情境的差異。他將潛意識的 影象精確地以卓越的具象繪畫技巧來表達,全然是非正常 邏輯思維產生的幻覺境界,構圖充滿張力和戲劇效果,這 種介於現實與臆想、具體與抽象之間的超現實畫面,帶給 人視覺與心靈的震撼。

Surrealism originated in France following WWII. It stemmed from the Dada art movement, meant to ridicule the meaninglessness of the modern world. Combining reality with instinct and essence with dream states, while not supporting either logic or rationality, surrealism as an art movement is said to influence imagination so as to reveal a world of fantasy. Dalí is illogical, illusionary, intense and dramatic, and, of course, caught between reality and delusion. Definitely Dali To Oct. 1.

Harvesting its own barrels

Almost two centuries old, Bollinger still believes in the complexities of the oak fermentation process for its vintage Champagne Story | Ivan Wong 木或鋼,wood or steel?香檳不像威士忌般要「依靠」橡木桶 才能發揮其潛在風味,所說的wood or steel,主要是指釀造香檳 的第一次發酵程序時該採用橡木桶還是不鏽鋼桶。 選用橡木桶發酵的香檳,原因在於橡木桶較「透氣」,能讓 酒液和空氣接觸,專業人士稱之為「呼吸」,同時亦能讓木桶的味 道「融入」酒液之中,這亦是釀酒人常說的seasoning。然而,這 亦是鼓吹採用不鏽鋼桶來保持香檳天然原味的一大立論—採用不 鏽鋼桶可保存天然果香原味,或更清新爽朗,亦比橡木桶便宜很 多,可能更合乎資本主義原則。 的確,橡木桶香檳換來較複雜細膩風味的背後,是更昂貴 的木桶成本,在「呼吸」過程中又有少部分酒液會被蒸發掉……與 其辨別孰優孰劣,倒不如說愛喝香檳的你們就是左右逢源的大贏 家,因為愈來愈多香檳酒莊肯投入更大的資源,不惜工本為橡木 桶香檳作貢獻,Bollinger便是一例。 Bollinger向來是橡木派香檳的龍頭代表,旗下的年份香檳 均經過橡木桶發酵,常用的3,500個老舊(有些過百年)橡木桶, 要由自己的木桶匠悉心「照料」,這在香檳區屬罕有例子。最近, 他們更宣布三年前在Côte des Blancs地區所擁有的森林中砍伐的 三棵百年橡樹,將製成二、三十個木桶,趕得上在今個收成中使 用。 雖然,這些橡木桶只是不足總用量的1個巴仙,意義卻很重 大,畢竟是自己橡木自己種。再者,從限量處想,不知會造就怎 樣的一瓶Bollinger橡木概念香檳?

Oak barrels are airy, which not only allows Champagne to “breathe”, but it also takes on the wood’s aroma. That’s also why there is a call for using stainless steel barrels to preserve the original character of a Champagne, without any foreign odours. There are also the arguments that stainless steel keeps the wine better and that it is a lot cheaper than oak. So, does money speak louder? It’s true that oak barrels do come at a steeper cost to give Champagne more complexity. The “breathing” process will lead to some evaporation, so the jury is still out on wood-versus-steel. While the debate continues, however, connoisseurs win as more Champagne makers are loosening their purse strings to bring in oak casks for making more unique Champagnes. And Bollinger is just one of them. As a “poster boy” for oak-fermented Champagne, Bollinger has put its vintage Champagne through oak fermentation. Its 3,500 oak barrels— some of them have been around for more than a century—are personally taken care of by barrel carpenters. This is a unique arrangement for the Champagne region. Bollinger even announced recently that it harvested three centuryold oak trees in the forest of Côte des Blancs three years ago to make between 20 and 30 oak barrels, in time for use with this year’s crop. Although these oak barrels comprise less than one per cent of the lot, they are significant in that they are home-grown. From a collector’s point of view, it will be interesting to see what an oak-concept Champagne Bollinger brings forth.


近二百年歷史的老香檳酒莊,在上世紀五、六十年代不鏽鋼桶興起時沒放棄 百年傳統,堅守橡木桶發酵原則。 This Champagne house, with nearly 200 years of history, has not given up on the long-standing tradition of using oak barrels for fermenting, spurning stainless steel, which became the rage in the 1950s and ’60s.

醞釀十年才推出的Bollinger La Grande Année 2008,窖藏十載仍是清新爽 朗,但又別具深度,可說是橡木派香檳的代表作。 The Bollinger La Grande Année 2008 was cellared for a decade. It speaks volumes about why oak is used.

雖說由自家橡樹製成的木桶不足總用量的1個巴仙,卻是意義重大。 Though the oak barrels made with the home-grown trees constitute less than one per cent of the total lot of barrels, they make a pretty big impact.

很難想像在這樣的環境,放上十年的香檳,還像昨天般新鮮。 It is hard to imagine that a bottle of 10-year-old Champagne stored in this condition can be as fresh as a younger vintage. ELITEGEN

Imagine the thrill of a roller coaster but you’re in control. Get slammed into your seat as you push the accelerator and feel your heart press against your chest as you stamp hard on the brakes. You own your dream car. Perhaps a Ferrari or a Lamborgini, but in the city driving at high speeds is only a fantasy, and rightfully so. Put pedal to the metal and you risk a hefty speeding ticket. Not at Area 27. Open since September 2016 and stretched out across a hillside in Oliver, South Okanagan, Area 27—chosen as a tribute to Canadian racing legend Gilles Villeneuve, who claimed that number as his own driving for Ferrari—has the unique distinction of being envisioned, designed, engineered and constructed by professional racecar drivers. Designed to take advantage of the natural terrain, Area 27’s 16 turns flow through elevation changes like a favourite country road, with straightaways long enough to generate great speed.

南奧肯納根釀酒莊豐盛之旅

WINeS OF The SOuTh OKANAGAN

如果你喜歡參觀葡萄酒莊,南奧肯納根的豐富選擇和獨特 個性定必令你滿意。比方是︰LaStella Winery的葡萄園出產很 棒的果子,並將它們製作成意大利風格的Allegretto,Vivace和 Maestoso等專屬葡萄酒;Tinhorn Creek的葡萄園是加拿大率 先支持碳中和措施的酒莊之一,致力於土地管理,實踐保護和 環境可持續性;Covert Farms有機種植的葡萄酒產品組合包括 Roussanne / Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon, Rosé,以及 他們專有的混成紅酒,The Bluff, MDC和具標誌性的Amicitia。

If you are into touring wineries, the South Okanagan certainly has an abundance of selection with unique personalities. A few examples include LaStella Winery vineyards (wines include Allegretto, Vivace and Maestoso); Tinhorn Creek vineyards, one of the first wineries in Canada to support carbon neutral measure, land stewardship, conservation and environmentally sustainable practices; and Covert Farms whose organically-grown wine portfolio includes red blends like The Bluff, MDC and the iconic Amicitia.

此外,還有Vanessa葡萄園,他們的願景是只生產最高質 量的葡萄,能反映其生長的風土條件,然後成為加拿大最好的 紅酒產地之一。在最初五年,他們只是葡萄農夫,向卑詩省數 家葡萄酒莊出售優質果子。到2012年才決定開始生產限量的優 質葡萄酒,希望通過在釀酒過程中使用百分百自家莊園種植的 果子,可以充分代表Similkameen山谷並鞏固其被《EnRoute雜 誌》稱之為「鮮為人知的世界五大葡萄酒產區之一」的聲譽。 Howard Soon是Vanessa的釀酒師,亦是卑詩省葡萄酒 釀造業的傳奇人物。Howard原是啤酒釀酒師,為追求更高的 創作性,於1980年加入了剛剛起步的BC葡萄酒行業。此後不 久,Howard開始在BC葡萄酒業創立里程碑,成為首家推出一 系列指定單一莊園葡萄酒的公司。與農夫們的合作關係,驅使 他在2006年與Vanessa Vineyard的葡萄栽培團隊共事,掌管他 們葡萄園的種植。隨後,他為其備受好評的Sandhill Vanessa Vineyard葡萄酒購買了絕大部分所出產的葡萄。在2017年, Howard「退休」到他所謂的「回歸工作檯」,作為Vanessa的釀酒 大師,並專注於真正的小批量釀酒。他的中國優良傳統教曉他 「勤奮和價值」的重要性。最近,Howard Soon因其在塑造、拓 展和提升卑詩省葡萄酒業方面的領導地位更榮獲加拿大勳章。

And then there’s Vanessa Vineyard. Their vision is to produce only the highest quality grapes that reflect the terroir on which they grow and, in time, to become one of the best red wine sites in Canada. For the first five years they were exclusively grape growers, selling their high quality fruit to a select few wineries in British Columbia. In 2012, the decision was made to begin producing small batches of premium wine. They hope that by using only 100 per cent estate-grown fruit in the making of their wines that they can properly represent the Similkameen Valley and strengthen its reputation as what enRoute magazine calls one of the “world’s five best wine regions you’ve never heard of.” A living legend, howard Soon has been on the leading edge of winemaking innovation for more than three decades. Originally a brewmaster, Soon had a taste for more creativity that saw him join the fledgling BC wine industry in 1980. Shortly thereafter, he began establishing milestones in BC wine, becoming the first to release a series of single vineyard designated wines, amongst innumerable other benchmarks. his collaborative relationships with growers led him to Vanessa Vineyard in 2006, where working with the viticulture team he oversaw the planting of the vineyard. he subsequently purchased the vast majority of the grapes for his highly-acclaimed Sandhill Vanessa Vineyard wines. In 2017 Soon “retired” to “go back to the workbench” as he coins it, focusing on truly small-lot winemaking as master winemaker for Vanessa. his Chinese heritage taught him the importance of “hardwork and value”. Recently Soon was honoured with The Order of Canada for his leading role in shaping, expanding and elevating British Columbia’s wine industry.

Vanessa葡萄園宗旨是生產最高質量的葡萄,能反映它們 生長的風土條件,成為加拿大最佳的紅酒產地之一。 The Vanessa Vineyard vision is to produce only the highest quality grapes that reflect the terroir on which they grow, and to become one of the best red wine sites in Canada.

The SVR is the performance leader of the group, boasting a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine that puts out 575 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque. It is also the flagship model in the lineup and aimed squarely at those who value performance above all else with a 0-100 km/h time of 4.4 seconds. At the other end of the spectrum, for those who want better fuel economy with a touch of performance thrown in for good measure, our HSE tester would fill the bill quite nicely, with its 3.0-litre, V6 turbo diesel engine. This power plant has lots of low-end grunt, producing 254 horsepower and 443 lb/ft. of torque. And it’s plenty fast enough in its own right for almost any driving situation, with a 0-100 km/h time of 7.7 seconds, according to manufacturer’s data. With a starting price of $87,300, our test vehicle priced out at $97,610 with options and the $1,700 delivery charge. A 355-horsepower, 3.0-litre, turbocharged six-cylinder gasoline engine is also available in the HSE trim.


的3公升渦輪增壓6缸汽油引擎供選擇。 另一方面,全新的PHEV車型是整個系列中最省油的,能 夠在全電動的模式下可行駛最多51公里,而車尾排氣管的廢氣 排放量為零。 相信在你閱讀這篇試車報告時,2020年款的Range Rover Sport已經開售,但預料只會有很少改動,因為新一代的車款 將於2021年面世。 自2004年以來,Range Rover Sport一直是積架越野路華 的旗艦車,從那時至現在全球的銷量已超過75萬輛。它的外觀 造型採用了車系的標誌設計元素,如獨特的修長水箱格柵、蜆 殼式車頭蓋,和浮動式車頂。新設計的前後保險桿是2019年款 才有的,車尾的保險桿把廢氣喉收藏在內。另外,所有車款都 採用高級的LED頭燈。 這款車有5座位和7座位供選擇。所有款式都是四輪帶動和 搭載八前速自動波箱。試駕的HSE有5個座位,車身噴上火紅 色,配襯黑色車頂,更選置了21吋的輪圈(標準裝置是有5條輪 輻的20吋輪圈) ,價值2,450元。

Meanwhile, the new PHEV model is the most fuel efficient of the bunch and capable of driving up to 51 kilometres in all-electric mode with zero tailpipe emissions. By the time you read this, the 2020 Range Rover Sport models will be on sale, but the changes are minimal, as the next generation is due out in 2021. So with this range of trim levels available, the British-built Range Rover Sport can really offer all things to all people. It has been a staple in the Jaguar Land Rover lineup since 2004, with worldwide sales well over the 750,000 mark since then. The Range Rover Sport’s exterior features trademark design elements, like the distinctive slim-line grille, iconic clamshell hood and floating roof. The front and rear bumpers are new for 2019, with integrated exhaust finishers at the rear. All models have premium LED headlights. Both five- and seven-passenger configurations are available and all models include four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The HSE, as tested, was a five-passenger version in Firenze red with a black top and 21-inch wheels (20-inch five split-spoke wheels are standard), a $2,450 option.

The HSE trim brings items like front fog lights, a 380-watt Meridian sound system, 360-degree parking aid and a sliding panoramic sunroof to a long list of standard features.

所有Range Rover Sport的車款都採用Touch Pro Duo資訊娛樂系統,裝有兩個觸控屏幕,一個用於收音 機、導航和媒體,而在下面的一個則用於調控溫度、車輛 設置和駕駛模式。

One neat feature on all Range Rover Sport models is the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that offers two 10-inch touchscreens—one for radio, navigation and media, and another underneath for climate control, vehicle settings and drive modes.

若要拖大型物件如船隻或掛車,Range Rover Sport 一定不負所託。在配備適當的裝置後,它可以拖行重達 3,500公斤(7,716磅) 的物件,輕鬆遊走於市區和閒暇時駛 往郊外度假屋。

駕駛Range Rover Sport是樂事,在高速公路上固然 平穩舒適,而在彎彎曲曲的路上亦能操控自如。

On the road, the Range Rover Sport is a pleasant vehicle to drive—smooth and comfortable on high-speed highways and easy to handle when the roads get twisty.

眾所周知,柴油引擎一般比汽油引擎嘈吵,但這情 況不適用於HSE,行車期間車廂內的噪音並沒有比汽油引 擎的大。

While diesel engines are known to be a bit noisier than their gasoline counterparts, we found no issues with cabin noise when the vehicle was at speed.

這輛2,156公斤(4,753磅)重的SUV相當靈活,駕駛者 可輕鬆扭動方向盤,即使在市區狹窄的停車場泊車也很容 易。

The Range Rover Sport is fairly agile for a 2,156-kilogram (4,753-pound) SUV and with light enough steering to make it easy to manoeuvre in tight urban parking lots.

若真的要在崎嶇的路上行走,Range Rover Sport肯 定是最好的,因為它裝置了廣受好評的地形反應系統 (使 用自動模式時,它會為你調節所有裝備)和位於4個角落的 氣壓式懸掛系統。

While few drivers take their vehicles off-road, the Range Rover Sport is among the best when the going gets tough, thanks to Land Rover’s acclaimed Terrain Response system (set it in auto and it will even adjust all the settings for you) and four-corner air suspension.
