#obsessed: Top picks from Clé de Peau Beauté, Leica, Zegna and more

This month, #legend is #obsessed with the latest from Clé de Peau Beauté, Leica, Zegna, Tatcha, Natura Bissé and DFS

Best defence

What’s better than a single defence against UV rays? According to Clé de Peau Beauté, it’s the new breakthrough dual defence system in its UV Protective Cream and Protective Lip Treatment. Both products harness 40 years of skin science with an innovative Adaptable Innershield Technology that mounts an intelligent defence internally, supporting the skin to protect itself against the damaging effects of UV rays. Externally, a high SPF filters out damaging rays, while beneficial red light potential is allowed to filter through. Botanical skincare ingredients such as Moroccan lime extract also help to keep skin looking youthful.

For your eyes only

Refined, discreet and always ready for action. The qualities we’ve come to know and love about the legendary 007 are also an apt description of the Leica D-Lux 7. To celebrate the James Bond film franchise – which began with the release of Dr. No in 1962 – the high-end compact camera is being offered in a special-edition set that is limited to exactly 1,962 units. Key Bond-inspired elements include the top plate adorned with the famous 007 logo and the edition number on the hot shoe, an automatic lens cap with the classic “gun barrel” design made famous by the films’ opening sequence, and the leather case in the style of a holster.

Common thread

With the mantra “crafted for tomorrow”, Zegna’s Oasi Cashmere is not only a new model of environmental and business consciousness but also a medium for collaboration and creative conversations. The first of these on-going dialogues is a partnership with Los Angeles-based lifestyle company The Elder Statesman, which shares the Italian luxury brand’s devotion to craft, material excellence, master craftspeople and synchronisation with nature. Recently unveiled at Paris Fashion Week, the new collection is a true merging of two worlds, with The Elder Statesman’s Californian sense of luxury with levity reimagining heritage Zegna styles.

Into the woods

Shinrin-yoku, known in the West as “forest bathing” is more than a pleasant stroll in the woods. The act of immersing all five senses in nature has become a common medical treatment prescribed by Japanese physicians for its many immunity- and mood-boosting powers. Tatcha’s Forest Awakening Body Collection takes the organic compounds emitted by trees’ essential oils – shown to boost immune function, reduce stress, improve sleep and lower blood pressure – and combines them with proven skincare ingredients to nourish the body while calming the mind. The three-piece collection includes a body wash, body milk and body oil.

See the light

Dark spots can occur for a variety of reasons – sun exposure, hormonal alterations, medication – but are a common concern among all age groups and skin tones. To minimise the appearance of hyperpigmentation, while delivering age-defying benefits, innovative skincare brand Natura Bissé has created the new Diamond Luminous collection. The three-piece collection, which focuses on brightening and rejuvenating the skin, includes the Perfecting Serum for spot treatments, the Perfecting Cream to activate brightening, and the Perfecting Glowing Mask to deeply hydrate and enhance the effect of hyperpigmentation treatments for a more even complexion.

High spirits

The annual DFS Masters of Wine and Spirits exhibition has returned to City of Dreams Macau for its 11th edition and second consecutive year at the luxury integrated resort. Themed “Elevate Your Senses”, the series of exhibitions – which, beginning in Macau, will find its way across the globe – takes collectors, connoisseurs and enthusiasts on a multi-sensory journey with a showcase of masterpieces from over 50 legendary houses, as well as rare releases, unique bottles and special collections created exclusively for DFS. New for 2023 is the addition of rum and tequila to the existing portfolio of wines, champagnes, whiskies, cognacs and more.
