u It has been 30 years since Yves Saint Laurent created the Opium fragrance for women, and there’s a new, limited edition partner for the iconic scent. Opium pour Homme Eau d’Orient is a blend of vetiver, sandalwood and Moroccan amber, with bergamot, star anise and ginger, making it a heady, Oriental cocktail. Rs2,960, for 100ml at major malls.
Horseplay: Full of symbolism for Ferrari freaks.
u Two of every boy’s favourite toys merge into this one. The Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition is crafted from red and black leather with black lacquer stripes running down the sides. The bezel on the front of the phone features the Ferrari Prancing Horse, while the rear has a scaled-down Ferrari brake pedal, crafted from aluminum used in the cars. Each piece is also numbered from 1 to 1947. The company says the phone is “crafted with the same precision and attention to detail given when assembling a Ferrari”. Only one way to find out. Rs3.89 lakh at select stores.
u Salvatore Ferragamo is being partial to men this season. The new collection of leather goods and accessories for both men and women will be in stores soon. But, the ready-to-wear collection for women will be replaced by the men’s ready-to-wear line in India (plenty of demand from the gentlemen). Look out for the Prince Charles check jacket—a dandy, quirky piece—and the mohair and wool-blend suits. A large collection of shirts, tees and trousers is also on the racks. At Salvatore Ferragamo, The Grand Hyatt Plaza, Mumbai.
