After something a little different ? What better way to enjoy a couple of hours together, than urban beekeeping and craft beer tasting? After a sell out in the first season in 2016 and rave reviews from Time Out and The Nudge, The Hiver experience is back for Spring/Summer 2017 from notonthehighstreet.com. The two hour session starts with a short introduction to Bees and Beekeeping, the equipment and tools commonly used by Beekeepers as well as a first glimpse inside the hive. We’ll then get suited up for a Hive inspection and help Hiver’s Beekeeper, Barnaby Shaw, in handling the frames and checking the health of the Hive. After the fun of getting up close with the ‘Ladies’, you can relax over a tutored beer and food matching session before leaving you to explore the rest of Bee Urban and answer any questions.

 

U-Boat Watches was founded in 1942 out of necessity, when founder and designer, Ilvo Fontana was commissioned by the Italian Government in 1942 to design a watch for use by pilots of the Italian navy. His plan was to produce a watch with an emphasis on high visibility, as he knew the pilots would encounter low light and bad weather conditions.

Unfortunately his dream was never realised and the designs lost, until in the year 2000 Ilvo’s grandson Italo decided to develop the U-BOAT watch as a tribute to his grandfather. Though based on the original designs, slight alterations have been made to make U-BOAT as we know it today; namely large, sturdy watches with bold designs. With their trademark large crown on the left side of the watch case and outstanding technical specifications, U-Boat Watches are designed to stand out from the crowd and stand up to the most demanding climatic conditions.
U-BOAT Classico watches capture the essence of the brand’s popular style with their bold military-inspired design, wide dial, and often a metal plate affixed to the strap. Timeless and iconic, the Classico is clean and uniquely styled model with its characteristic case, crown security device, on the right hand side, as well as the sandwich dial, constructed of two discs, one is superimposed on top of the other.
Classico represents Fontana’s idea of the pure, timeless design that does not fade and die like passing trends and it is designed for individuals with strong personal style. The new Classico boasts a tough temper thanks to the 48 mm black matt ceramic case on the outside and internally in black steel. The back of the case is sealed with 7 external screws, with sapphire crystal showing the movement balancer. The deep black dial features spheres and indexes in beige colour treated with superluminova. In addition to this an extra counter showing the 24 hours of the day has been added to the dial. Last but no least a calf leather strap with a deployant buckle in burnished steel after the IPB treatment.

For all his swagger,  bravado and pure Yeah let’s ave it ! Our Liam has always been a trend setter, and maybe after the One Love Manchester Concert last weekend, see above, we can add a Heart of Gold to that roster. Mr Gallagher junior has built up quite the reputation for fashion empire building on the side with his Pretty Green brand and after wearing this Sassafras Leaf Bud Coat from Oi Polloi, the aforementioned item sold out within an hour off the website!!! But after observing his appreciation for colour and wearing it so well, maybe Liam has stuck a blow for Orange being the colour of Summer 2017, what do you think ?

With Father’s Day a little over a week away, we thought the launch of the French Fragrance house, Azzaro‘s new men’s scent was timely but more so is its backstory for the inspiration behind the fragrance. Founder of the brand, the late, Loris Azzaro shared two great loves, the first his close relationship with his grandson Romain and his attachment to the Mediterranean Sea were the sources of inspiration. With Chrome Pure the driving force behind it, is to reconnect with these two major inspirations: the undeniable bond between a father and his son, and the sense of escapism conveyed by Chrome’s symbolic freshness.

This was the brief set for the creators of this new scent, perfumers Jacques Huclier and Olivier Pescheux, who have been responsible for such iconic aromas as Davidoff Horizon and Thierry Mugler A*Men. In the tradition of Chrome, Chrome Pure focuses on special bonds such as that between a father and his son witnessed during spontaneous moments, instances when time seems to stand still, magical everyday interludes that stay with you for the rest of your life.

Messers Huclier and Pescheux have done a sterling job in recreating the scent of Fresh long Summer days and the memories created during this time. A citrus-oriental-woody fragrance, Chrome Pure revisits Chrome’s emblematic freshness, creating a more textured and vibrant feel, with the addition of two new ingredients: The spicy-woody accents akigala wood and tonka bean join the white musks and mate leaves of the original version. Chrome Pure is a crisp fragrance, synonymous with purity, combined with a real feeling of vibrant freshness and strength, structured around sun-kissed moments.
