PHOTOGRAPHY

Leica CL camera: Frame of mind

State-of-the-art technology meets compact construction in this everyday-companion camera. The dials have been positioned on the top plate, so you can adjust your settings without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. And in a move so useful you’ll wonder why it isn’t standard, the exposure preview is displayed in the electronic viewfinder before the shutter release is pressed. Sharing your shots is effortless with the integrated Wi-Fi module, or through the Leica CL app for IOS or Android. The software also allows a smartphone to become an off-camera viewfinder, and settings to be altered remotely.

GAMING

Through a glass darkly

From the small copper pot stills to the sherry-seasoned casks, every step of The Macallan’s process ensure that its single-malt whiskies are among the best in the world.

Narciso Rodriguez

FOR HIM BLEU NOIR

A richer interpretation of the original Narciso Rodriguez For Him Bleu Noir eau de toilette, the new eau de parfum plays on the more sensual notes in the classic composition. The signature accords of musk, woody blue cedar and black ebony remain at the heart of the scent, intensified by warm amber and smoky vetiver. And, to echo the fragrance, the midnight-blue bottle is now framed with an electric-blue transparent edge.
