Versace Men's Spring/Summer 2019


PUBLISHER'S CORNER SEXY MEN'S DESIGNER CLOTHES South Florida's weather is perfect for wearing spring and summer clothes almost year round. So what better way to be comfortable and sexy in our Florida temperatures than by wearing some beautiful clothes designed by famous fashion houses? This week, we bring you a special Fashion & Style issue showcasing the Spring/Summer '19 men's fashion collections of Balmain and Versace. After all, there was a time when Gianni Versace ruled the fashion world right out of his stunning mansion on Ocean Drive in our Magic City's famous South Beach. Since music forms a key part of the Balmain DNA, designer and creative director Olivier Rousteing's SS '19 collection is heavily influenced by Michael Jackson. Rousteing actually recreates some of The King of Pop's most iconic wardrobe pieces, as well as American signatures, which can be seen on the runway and are referred to as a French offering. Balmain delivers a mix of blue, white and red riffs on French iconic styles, which rely on the mastery of Parisian couture embellishment techniques and precision tailoring. Versace, on the other hand, is "Bringing sexy back – in the office, out on the town, back to his place." For SS '19, Versace focuses on a very sexy view of masculine sensuality with uses of lace, sheer, neon and floral prints in a modern context, making the Versace man the center of attention you may like to be when you dress up. Staying healthy and fit is a great way to look good in appealing clothing. The most important meal of the day is breakfast, so starting with the right nutrition can go a long way in helping you lose weight and improve your overall nutrition. In Home Chef, Michael W. Sasser reminds us that our first meal sets the tone for your day to follow and it fires up your metabolism for the next 12 hours. According to Michael, with just a little planning and an extra 10 minutes in the morning, the right type of breakfast can kick your day off with taste, nutrition and joy. A really satisfying breakfast can start with an egg or two, and we share some nice recipes that you may want to try to replace your current high calorie, low nutrition daily breakfast choices. In Destinations, we bring another great option for an upcoming vacation filled with music and delicious dining – Nashville, Tennessee. The Music City offers ample natural appeal and history to explore, and can certainly entertain a sportsman or an academic. Nashville is also definitely about live music, music history and delicious food! Finally, on another musical note, in Top Trax, DJ FR8-O turns up the heat with his current house music faves, remixed to get you on the dance floor this summer. So let there be house!

BREAKFAST

AS SIMPLE PERFECTION

hh, breakfast. It's "the most important meal of the day," it sets the tone for your day to follow, it fires up your metabolism for the next 12 hours. Breakfast, nutrition type people tell us, is the alpha and omega of daily meals.

However, breakfast needn't be suicide, nor bland, nor obligatory. Instead, with just a little planning and an extra 10 minutes in the morning, it can kick your day off with taste, nutrition and joy. What's a better way to start the day? Let me be honest. Several times a week, I eat the aforementioned oatmeal. It isn't bad, it's insanely healthy and it gets me to lunch without eating my arm (more on dressing up oatmeal in a later column). But a really satisfying breakfast for me, starts with an egg or two. Yes, eggs. A few years ago, eggs were nutritiously verboten. Not so much anymore as research has demonstrated they aren't the devils were once told. So, while they are passable, take advantage of it! 8 WIREMAG.COM #28 2018

Yet, breakfast doesn't get the respect it does from many Americans. Come on, you know it. For a lot of people, breakfast is a slightly modified dessert – laden with sugar, white carbs and chemicals we can't pronounce. For every health-conscious individual who starts his day with something ideal – say unsweetened oatmeal with blueberries and diabetic-friendly cinnamon, there is the rest of us slathering "lite" cream cheese on a starch ball of a bagel, downing the two for $4 McMuffins, donuts or the faux "coffee" tossed at you by a barista with a heavy hand with the caramel. That's not breakfast. It's suicide!


Two egg options. Years ago, while spending an entire summer in the Caribbean, I enjoyed what I thought was the height of egg-y sophistication. Breakfast every day was a two-minute (soft boiled) egg served in an egg stand alongside "local bread" and a salad of fresh greens. It was heaven. The hardest part was finding an egg stand, which eventually I did on Amazon. The rest is easy. Carefully boil an egg for two minutes, shock briefly in cold water, set in a stand and serve with bread. You chip the top of the egg and use a combination of spoon and bread to extract the eggy goodness. Pure heaven, with the richness cut by the salad. That is still my favorite weekend egg. Weekdays, I prefer an egg bake and accoutrement. Also simple.

With egg bakes done for the week or the quick preparation of a soft-boiled egg, the question is with what to serve your perfect egg on a weekday when your time is limited. Pre-cooking oatmeal for the week or pouring yourself a bowl of cereal is pretty easy. But do either of those things make you look forward to breakfast? Me either. Instead, I like a small arugula salad with tomato slices, a sliver of goat cheese and a splash of olive oil and lemon juice. Now, the idea of a salad for breakfast might not occur to many people. But recently I spent two weeks in a resort hotel and it was a standard with all of the egg presentations at breakfast. It was an epiphany. The crisp, sharp salad cuts the richness of the egg and the lemon lightens everything up. A little sweet finalizes the plate for my favorite weekday breakfast. I eat a lot of fat free Greek yogurt all of the time, so I shoot for something different alongside my egg dishes. Instead of the yogurt, I mix low-fat Ricotta cheese with local honey, cinnamon, blueberries and a couple of crumbled walnuts. The sweet-but-not-too-sweet side has a lot to offer besides a satisfying finish to breakfast. Ricotta is a good source of protein. Fresh or dried blueberries are a delicious superfood whose many benefits are particularly important to men's colon-rectal health. Walnuts are up there nutritionally too.

• Line a muffin pan with wrappers as if making muffins. • In a large bowl, scramble a dozen eggs, salt, pepper and your favorite assortment of cheese and vegetables. My choice: Swiss cheese, tomatoes, onion, spinach, mushrooms. If you aren't concerned with animal fat, toss in some cooked bacon, ham or sausage. • Fill each cup equally with egg mix and top with chives • Bake in a preheated oven for 20-30 minutes based on volume and contents. The more in the mix the longer it way take. • Remove, let cool, place leftovers in a plastic bag. They are easily reheated over the course of the whole week. Imagine egg indulgence with only half an hour, oneday's effort!

namon can help regulate blood sugar and some other studies show that just the scent of cinnamon in the morning provides a kick-start for the brain! Cinnamon is one of those things that every time I use, I think I really should find more uses for it because of the distinct, appealing taste. Finally, local honey. You don't want to go overboard, because it is a sugar. But honey has so many healthy properties that it should be incorporated into anyone's diet. Local honey is most important to find, because of the cycle of bees and production of honey; local honey, resulting from local flora, provides protections against allergens in your particular environment. Local is also usually the most flavorful. There you have it – a couple of egg-based weekday breakfasts that will make you dump the drive-through and turn your nose up at the junk food starts to our days too many are accustomed to eating. When it can be simple, elegant and fulfilling at home, there is no reason to go for that 500-calorie bagel or donut! Author/writer Michael W. Sasser has written on food and dining in South Florida and abroad for hundreds of publications, ranging from Where Miami and the Sun-Sentinel Group to Frommer's Fodor's, Time Out, Fresh Guides, Black Book NY and more.

According to designer and the creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, "Music forms a key part of the Balmain DNA." Separating the two, music and fashion that is, is nearly an impossible task. Balmain has been responsible for influencing many high profile artists and celebrities over its many recent seasons. From Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, to Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, everyone is part of the Balmain Army (#balmainarmy). "For next spring, both the Men's collection and the second offering of our Women's Episode Collection build directly upon the incredible style, music and message of the artist who has been on auto-replay throughout my entire life: Michael Jackson," Olivier explains. Heavily influenced by Jackson, Olivier recreates some of Jackson's most iconic wardrobe pieces, as well as American signatures, which can be seen on the runway and are referred to as a French offering. This season, Balmain delivers a mix of blue, white and red riffs on French iconic styles, which rely on the mastery of Parisian couture embellishment techniques and precision tailoring.

The Versace man is "Bringing sexy back – in the office, out on the town, back to his place." According to Donatella, "What I put on the runway was inspired by many different kinds of men: the street-style star, the high fashion man, the boardroom executive. I conceived these clothes thinking that each of them could find something that perfectly fits his personal style. These are men who do not care about the rules and that is exactly what I love: they have an opinion and make their own style choices." As we all know, the Versace man isn't ordinary, he's a walking statement, effortlessly turning heads everywhere he goes, which is exactly what this collection is all about. For Spring/ Summer '19, Versace focuses on a very sexy view of masculine sensuality with uses of lace, sheer, neon and floral prints in a modern context. Jackets are worn with baggy denim pants. The women's Icon shoulder bag is paired with printed silk pyjamas, faux python overcoats and black or white looks, further making the Versace man the center of attention.

ven those who aren't fans of the TV series Nashville, or even traditional country music, must have noticed the cool, pop groove that emanates from the Music City these days. Pop country crossovers and hunky frontmen make it hard to ignore, whatever one's own musical preferences are. This isn't the Nashville of yodeling, requisite hats and over-compensatory belt buckles anymore. Although if you're looking for those things, you are bound to find them in this, the Athens of the South.

If not literally, then figuratively, all roads in Nashville lead to the Grand Ole Opry, which for almost a century has been the leading, American-original musical site in the entire country. You name it – every major country act (and a few others too!) have graced the stage of the Opry and it is an experience unlike any other. These days, the Opry is surrounded by a mega-mall called Opry Mills, if the commercial bug bites you. Plan your Nashville visit around an act you like at the Opry. With enough prayer and supplication, you might catch Dolly Parton. Please don't say Dolly doesn't interest you. I am not sure we could be friends anymore...

But, seriously now, if you have the opportunity to visit Nashville for a few days, it's going to be about live music, music history and the kind of food your doctor warns you about!

Perhaps the single coolest aspect of Nashville is that it isn't just the Grand Ole Opry. There is a culture of honky tonks featuring professional and up-and-coming musicians, pretty much every night of the week. They are legion, but a few bigger names include Bluebird Cafe, Mercy Lounge, Whiskey Jam at Winner's and the outdoor Ascend Amphitheater. With more than 180 live music venues, there is something for everyone. Other must... must-see sites include the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, The Johnny Cash Museum and Musica, a 38 foot tall sculpture featuring nine nude dancing figures created by Alan Lequire and which is in a roundabout in the heart of Music Row.

Whether visiting for a weekend or a full week, you will find limitless live music in affordable venues – and you might just see the next big star just starting to warm up! Your base of operations for your stay can range from traditional, inexpensive motels of varying quality to bed and breakfasts to high-end accommodations such as the 21C Museum Hotel, Bobby Hotel, Dream Nashville and many others. With all the music and historic sites to see, you will need to keep your battery recharged. Dining in Nashville is elevated from decades ago, but you still see a lot of local dishes, ingredients and preparations. You can find Nashville's authentic flavors in many areas of town such as Germantown, East Nashville, The Gulch, Midtown, 12South, Downtown, and Hillsboro Village. Stick with Southern specialties and you can't go wrong in Nashville.

Time permitting, there are outdoor and water-based recreations, tons of history and an improved cultural scene in Nashville. But, for the time being, the best the city has to offer is its music culture, which has no peer in the country. And that is something worth experiencing. Michael W.

TOP TRAX By DJ FR8-O

BURNIN' DOWN THE HOUSE "BLOOM" (BARRY HARRIS CLUB ENHANCED MIX) - TROYE SIVAN In the last few years, this openly gay singer has gone from Internet sensation to indie recording artist to international pop star – and like every other pop star before him – he's getting the Barry Harris treatment. The legendary DJ/producer goes old school on this one with Latin percussions and a sweet piano riff that makes the chorus soar. "DIRTY MIND" (DISCO FRIES REMIX) - STANAJ Born in Albania and raised in NYC, soulful singer and pianist Albert Stanaj takes his style cues from Pop titans like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Whitney Houston. He recently toured with JoJo and is about to step out of the background and into his own spotlight. The unstoppable Disco Fries slathered his latest track with so much sexiness that you can't help but think nasty thoughts while you groove. "DON'T STOP THE MUSIC" (ERIC KUPPER REMIX) - LILLA Eric Kupper is notorious for putting his throwback spin onto everything he touches. Bongos, strings, guitar riffs, horns, this remix has it all, plus the smolderingly soulful vocals of R&B singer-songwriter Lilla D'Mone. With sexy House vibes like this you won't want the music to end either.

ast week, I hooked you up with the hottest new EPs to chill to this summer. Now, it is time to turn up the heat and give you something to sweat to. The house movement was born in the late '80s out of an underground warehouse party in Chicago. Since then, it's grown and evolved into countless hybrids as DJs around the globe put their own spin on this hypnotic sound. Tech house, acid house, funk house, Latin house, and deep house: these are just a few of the offspring that have made millions of revelers worldwide dance till dawn and beyond. Who says pop music can't do the same? Here are a few of my current faves remixed to get you on the dance floor this summer. Let there be house!


"EMOTIONAL" (JUS NOW REMIX) KAMILLE Sometimes all you need to get your body in the mood is a tribal beat and a mesmerizing rhythm. That's exactly what Jus Now delivers on this dramatic deep house remix. Sprinkled with a touch of the Middle East, this track is perfect for a late night (or early morning) groove session. "LET ME LIVE" (M22 REMIX) - RUDIMENTAL FEATURING ANNE-MARIE AND MR. EAZI English drum and bass act Rudimental have been living their best life since 2010, working with the UK's top dance recording artists and collecting awards along the way. M22 has taken their latest single to the 22nd century with a tech house bassline that screams "after hours." "LOVING YOU" (THE INAUDIBLES RETHINK CLUB MIX) - HUGH DRUMM If you look back on all the House music ever recorded, you'll find one common message – love. This track is no different. Jamie Evans (aka The Inaudibles) loves melding his eclectic influences together to create unforgettable music. With Noellia's sultry vocals, this track gives you all the feels. "MAKE YOUR OWN KIND OF MUSIC" (F9 REMIX) - PALOMA FAITH Why hasn't this woman taken over the U.S. yet? Until she does, she'll be conquering the world one dance floor at a time. The latest anthem in her arsenal is a modern cover of this 1969 Mama Cass classic. F9 (aka Freemasons) made it club ready with their signature disco house touch, just in time for Pride season. "ONE KISS" (FUBU CLUB MIX) - CALVIN HARRIS FEATURING DUA LIPA Dua Lipa is on a mission to become the "Summer Anthem" queen. Last year's "New Rules" was her first move. This time, she's got some help from the dance anthem King himself, Calvin Harris. Between DJ Fubu's insatiable piano riffs, melancholy strings and unstoppable beats on the remix, Princess Dua may be claiming her new title very soon.
