Sundrenched Supernova

Marking 20 years in the watch industry, Montblanc has come a long way since delving into timepieces in 1997. Today’s collections include some astonishing pieces, marketed to the sophisticated and dapper sartorialist. But Montblanc is now also catering to the more casual, sporty and easy-going man, which is where this bi-color 1858 Automatic sits. Uncommonly for a bi-color watch, the auburn-tones material is neither gold nor gold plated but bronze, perfect to match summer’s all white and beach attire or for a leisurely dinner date. The bronze gives the watch a warm and con dent vibe, topped up by the cognac-colored calfskin strap.

Prada makes a functional yet stylish eyewear to minimize the hassle of changing your prescription glasses to your shades. Crafted in Italy from gold-tone metal and accented with amber acetate tips, these multifunctional Prada glasses pack quite the sartorial punch. The gold frame provides a classic and vintage style while the green UV lenses give a modern look, suited for men of all ages. Simply fit the round optical frames with your own prescription, clipping on the green UV lenses when you’re out and about and when the sun is shining.

Men opt to let loose their feet during the summer season, but there’s no need to compromise style and class even in the warmest of breezes. A sleek and edgier update on Gucci’s iconic loafer, this backless pair champions the brand’s world-renowned heritage and commitment to exceptional workmanship through the years. They are expertly crafted from smooth black leather and topped with a burnished-gold snaffle that nods to Gucci’s equestrian roots. It is also detailed with Gucci’s signature colors with red and green webbing across the vamp and a polished square toe. Whether worn with tailored trousers, cuffed jeans or shorts, this adds sophistication to every man’s summer style.
