DOLCE&GABBANA Beauty + new limited-edition scent

LIMITED EDITION FOR SUMMER 2019

While Bianca Balti and David Gandy remain the iconic faces of Light Blue and Light Blue Pour Homme, a new couple embodies the 2019 Summer limited edition to tell the story of the new fragrances: Light Blue Sun

Light Blue Sun is an invitation to Capri – let the new fragrance take you on a trip to relive your first summer romance.

LIGHT BLUE SUN – POUR FEMME

Dolce&Gabbana Beauty captures the essence of young, sun-kissed passion with new limited edition fragrances, Light Blue Sun, exploring a new olfactory territory: warm, sensual, sunny. Light Blue Sun is inspired by the exhilarating magic of summer love on the enchanting island of Capri, warmed by the dazzling Mediterranean sun rays. This summer, Light Blue’s fruity floral signature takes on a new sunny, sensual quality, as though warmed by the languorous heat of the Capri sun. Light Blue’s mouth-watering top notes of tangy Italian lemon and juicy Granny Smith apple are quenched with a liberal splash of cool, refreshing coconut water, and sharpened by the crisp sea sprays of the ozonic accord. The original heart of sensual jasmine and feminine white rose is now infused with exotic frangipani, creating a heady blend of sun-soaked floral nectar. In the base, aromatic cedarwood is warmed with ambrosial amber and the sweet intensity of Bourbon vanilla. Finally, a hypnotic trail of seductive white musks lingers on the skin, evoking the addictive desire of summer love.

LIGHT BLUE SUN – POUR HOMME

The iconic woody, spicy scent of Light Blue Pour Homme is reinvented with a splash of freshness and suffused with the warmth of the Italian sun. A chilled cocktail of Italian bergamot and juicy frozen grapefruit is invigorated with the vibrant, spicy tang of ginger and the fresh aquatic wave of the ozonic accord. As the fragrance evolves to an intensely Mediterranean and masculine heart, the warmth of cedarwood and cypress conjure the power of the sun at its midday peak, setting aromatic rosemary against a refreshing cooler of coconut water. Woody oakmoss and sensual white musks dominate the drydown, as earthy vetiver and carnal vanilla recreate the irresistible allure of salty, sun-kissed skin.

THE PACKAGING

The warm sun of Capri lends its golden amber hue to the fragrances, while the sky- blue boxes are embellished with a traditional illustration of the beaming sun, in the style of the Mediterranean majolica of Capri.

THE NEW DIGITAL CAMPAIGN

The launch of Light Blue Sun marks the sequel to the Light Blue story with the summer crush of two young blondes, who meet on the enchanting island of Capri.

CHAPTER 1: SUNCRUSH

While she enjoys a gelato, and he works on the harbourside, the young couple catch each other’s eye.

CHAPTER 2: SUNSATION

As she sunbathes on the beach, he approaches to whisper an invitation in her ear. They spot a boat moored near the Faraglioni and hatch a plan.

CHAPTER 3: SUNSCAPE

Winding along the clifftops on his scooter, her arms wrapped tight around his waist, they arrive at a secluded cove, the sea sparkling in the midday sun. He dives into the water towards the boat anchored just off shore….

CHAPTER 4: SUNKISS

She basks on the sun-soaked deck, while he pulls anchor. Finally, they can resist each other no longer, and he draws her towards him in a passionate kiss….

THE MASH-UP:

Lunching in the sun with her friends, she spots him working on the dock, and her imagination starts to race. Suddenly she is basking in the sun, as he whispers in her ear, then stripping down to her bikini as they dive into the water. She imagines them frolicking on the deck of a boat by the Faraglioni cliffs, and imagines him drawing her towards him in a passionate embrace. As she finally emerges from her reverie, she holds his gaze with a flirtatious smile.

Playboy California Red Wine

LOT18 AND PLAYBOY PARTNER FOR THE FIRST-TIME TO CREATE A SAVORY CALIFORNIA RED WINE BLEND

The Limited Edition Wine Is Now Available Exclusively Through LOT18 

Winemaker Lot18 has teamed up with Playboy Enterprises, Inc. to produce the ‘Playboy California Red Wine’, a limited edition, high-quality blend crafted for wine aficionados and Playboy fans alike.

In celebration of Playboy’s 65-year anniversary, and just in time for Valentine’s Day, Lot18’s specially crafted red wine blend will undoubtedly please any wine lover. The bottle itself makes for a perfect gift for collectors, with a unique label that presents the famed Playboy Bunny Costume. Inspired by the sultry silhouette of the iconic Bunny, Playboy illustrator and designer, Katie Bailie, captured the essential details of the Costume – a satin bodice, ears, and bowtie applied in lavish gold mosaic as a gracious nod to Playboy’s heritage.

Playboy California Red Wine Blend can be ordered exclusively here while supplies last. The wine was masterfully created by the team at Lot18 to celebrate the iconic brand and its legacy of work.

Playboy California Red Wine Blend

Robust and intriguing, this California red wine blend is balanced by just the right amount of fruit, oak and acidity. On the palate, ripe, luscious flavors of cherry and dark fruits are laced with vanilla and spice, followed by well-integrated toasted oak nuances on the finish.

The luscious and spicy wine can be enjoyed on its own, or pairs excellently with a perfectly grilled steak.

About Lot18

Founded in 2010, Lot18 provides the best possible prices on high-quality wines – some well-known favorites, some hard-to-find selections, and plenty in between. Lot18 employs a team of experts who work closely with quality-driven winemakers around the world. These experts live by a simple rule: If they wouldn’t spend their own money on a wine, they don’t make it available on Lot18. The wines selected are unique in their own right, and represent the highest quality and value. In early 2013, Lot18 launched Tasting Room, a unique wine club offering an unprecedented level of customization and personalization.  The customer starts by tasting a range of wines (from a light, crisp white to a full-bodied red) in mini-bottle format and then gives feedback online through an innovative, yet simple, guided comparative tasting. This process generates a wine profile that allows Tasting Room to capture the nuances of each customer’s palate. Tasting Room then uses this information to provide a specific selection of wines in standard-size bottles to match. Tasting Room is now the fastest growing wine club in the United States and launched a very successful national TV campaign in March 2016.

Reebok x ComplexCon

Today, Reebok unveiled the first sneaker in their highly anticipated limited edition, R58 capsule collection with the release of the Aztrek R58, which was available only at ComplexCon.

The series, which encompasses three of Reebok’s key sneakers, nods to the brand’s heritage as well as the grit and attitude of their co-founders — encouraging wearers to be unafraid and push the limits beyond the conventional. The Aztrek R58 ($120) also nods to the brand’s 90s heritage as the original off-road runner and features shades of black, yellow and red with all three Reebok logos artfully placed throughout.

To celebrate the shoe’s debut, Swae Lee (Rae Sremmurd) stopped by the Reebok booth and got a custom tattoo from artist Miryam. Brand partner Trevor Andrew also stopped by.

In partnership with basketball legend Allen Iverson, Reebok also debuted the long-awaited follow-up to the Answer XIV, the Iverson Legacy. Featuring an entirely new design, the sneaker is the first collaboration between the two in four years and pays tribute to Iverson’s life and career. Championing his legacy both on and off the courts, the Legacy features design elements from his first five Reebok models and reinterprets them for today. Fans of Iverson will recognize details like the ghillie lacing system, iconic I3 jewel logo and woven heel tab from the Question, Answer I, Answer II, Answer III, Answer IV.

Officially launching November 17 on Reebok.com for $160, Allen Iverson made an appearance at the Reebok booth to officially unveil the sneaker. Along with the black/white colorway, a custom version from sneakerhead and former Complex editor, Russ Bengtson was offered as an exclusive for ComplexCon attendees. Bengtson’s shoe, which nod’s to Iverson’s unprecedented legacy, is inspired by classic Iverson models as well as his various tattoos — featuring a bold, red and camo pattern throughout. The red leather nods to the Question and Answer I, while the multiple patches bring in a lot of other Iverson-themed graphics, an easy way to let people personalize their own pairs.

2019 Lexus LC500, LC500h

By Shin Takei

For those of us lucky enough to experience driving the Lexus LFA we lamented the fact that it was a limited production (500) high dollar super car (MSRP $375K USD) produced from 2011 to 2012. Needless to say, it remains an icon and a collector car. For most driving enthusiasts, the word exciting, sexy, exhilarating, thrilling was never associated with Lexus. In fact, after the LFA, nothing from Lexus could be labelled exciting, until now. Akio Toyoda, President of Toyota Motor Corporation and Chief Branding Officer of Lexus heard the automotive journalist’s call and vowed that Lexus will never be associated with those words. Being an avid car enthusiast and master driver who honed his skills at Nurburgring, Mr. Toyoda wanted Lexus to be emotional and exciting vehicles to drive.

As part of the Lexus Flagship lineup which consists of the LS500 and LX570, the LC500 and LC500h, the Flagship Sports Coupe is part of the Global Architecture-Luxury platform that features a low center of gravity, aerodynamics and high- speed stability which is shared by the LS sedan. The styling of the LC Flagship coupe is aggressive starting with the prominent spindle grille and wide flared out hip and low frontal area due to a multi-link front suspension system. The ultra-compact LED 3-projector headlamps are flanked by the L-shaped daytime running lights. An optional carbon fiber roof panel is available and at the rear the spindle profile is carried out. A set of optional 21” black wheels enhance the sporting look. The coupe looks purposeful and its aggressive looks generated a few stares wherever we drove it. Liberal use of light weight high strength steel, aluminum and CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) contribute to the stiffest unibody ever built by Lexus and with much of the drivetrain behind the front axle a 52:48 weight distribution was achieved resulting in the driver’s hip and heel points to be lowered in the cockpit.

The LC500 is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0 liters V8 with 471 HP @7,100rpm and 398 lb-ft of torque @4,800rpm. The DOHC 32 valve Dual VVT-iE (Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence) engine is hooked up to a 10-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic with paddle shift and manual mode. 0-60mph arrives in less than 4.5 seconds. To increase the exhaust sound, Active Exhaust channels the sound to the firewall through a special resonance tube. The engine switches to the Atkinson cycle for efficiency and to he Otto cycle for performance. The LC500h features Lexus Hybrid Synergy Drive and is mated to an Atkinson cycle 3.5 Liter gasoline engine and allows for operating the vehicle up to 87 mph without the gas engine. To enhance the sports driving experience, the owner can opt for the Lexus Dynamic Handling system (LDH) which coordinates EPS (electric power steering with Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) and Active Rear Steering (ARS).

The interior of the coupe was designed to maximize the driving experience by positioning the driver low and close to the center of gravity to transmit road feel more directly. The seats feature bolsters in the shoulder area and the optional sports seats provide more grip around the driver during hard cornering. The Alcantara door panels with drape-surfaces are similar to the flowing exterior lines. The TFT display and the Lexus Multi-Media display integrates the Remote Touch Interface touchpad control for Navigation, Audio and Connectivity. As if the standard 12 speaker Pioneer surround sound system isn’t enough, there’s the optional Mark Levinson 13 speaker sound system to blow your ears away.

So how does this all work out? Quite well, thank you. The coupe is easy to drive, and in true GT car fashion, comfortable and relaxing but turning the Drive Mode Selector switch to Sport+ brings out the true character of this coupe. Faster shifting, enhanced engine performance and increased engine sound contribute to an exciting driving experience. There’s a lot of Japanese culture incorporated in the car. The chrome strip next to the rear glass panel is not unlike a samurai sword and words like Kizashi (a sign of great things to come) and Omotenashi (hospitality) are integrated throughout the car.

There is a limited edition of 100 Lexus LC500 Inspiration Series that are painted in Flair Yellow, which does draw your attention and a new pigment called Structural Blue was formulated taking characteristics from butterfly wings tropical fish and precious stones. Both are brilliant and intense and unique in enhancing the profile of the car but you better hurry to get one.

The Lexus LC500 is a true GT (Grand Touring) car. It is quick, handles well and finally has feeling and excitement. Yet it is comfortable enough to drive it for an evening out. However, we feel they’ve left a little wiggle room for more performance and believe a LC500 F-Sport is coming soon that would satisfy the hardcore sports car enthusiasts. Until then, the Lexus LC500 and LC500h will be more than adequate for most of us who won’t be driving it to the limit.
