Here, 18 luxury gifts for Father’s Day
Saint Laurent Sac De Jour 48H Duffle Bag In Grained Leather
Inconspicuous and chic, the Saint Laurent duffle bag comes with flexible handles and a detachable shoulder strap. As the name suggests, this bag is the ideal weekender with a calfskin leather construction, cotton lining and Saint Laurent engraved ID plate elevating the appeal.
Tiffany & Co. Chess Board
Featuring American walnut with a sterling silver inlay, Tiffany & Co.’s skilled artisans have transformed the humble chessboard into a luxurious display. Pieces include those in ‘Tiffany Blue’, hand-cut from amazonite and white howlite, with an additional eight pieces for those who prefer checkers.
Montblanc MB01 Headphones
Elegance and functionality meet with the Montblanc MB01 headphones, made comfortable through premium leather ear cups and a lightweight 280g design paired to an immersive sound experience and active noise cancelling ability. Google Assistant is a plus, and they look especially good in this brown and gold combination.
Fendi Peekaboo Iconic Essential
Made in Italy, this lightweight design sees two compartments with a briefcase handle, adjustable and detachable shoulder strap and patch pocket on the inside. Featured here in dark brown Romano leather, it comes in black and grey. The interior pocket sees the jacquard FF motif adding a pop of panache to your padre’s style.
Hublot Big Bang e Smartwatch
The Big Bang e is Hublot’s first full production smartwatch and features its iconic ‘sandwich’ construction alongside its rubber strap and a 42mm scratchproof sapphire crystal touchscreen. The piece is powered by Google’s WEAR OS technology, providing access to apps such as Google Play, Google Assistant and Google Pay and is available in titanium and black ceramic.
From $7200; hublot.com
La Prairie Caviar Eye Cream
La Prairie’s luxurious eye cream is dotted along the under-eye area until absorbed. While there’s a long list of marketing guff and cellular level science that goes into such, know it lifts and firms tired eyes and associated areas. We’ll take two.
Berluti Caractère Capri Leather Boot
Not all boots are created equal, with Berluti’s tobacco coloured Chelsea boots made from smooth Venetian leather and boasting the house’s signature patina. A tapered toe gives the boot its shape, while elasticated gussets and smooth leather linings form the fit.
Czech & Speake Manicure Set
This German manicure set is hard to overlook. Handy for the home bathroom and when on the road, it carries eight essential tools in a premium leather-bound case replete with its own dust bag.
Approx. $632; czechandspeake.com
Penfolds Grange 2016
Missed out on a case of g4? Not to worry, Penfolds’ new 2016 Grange release proves one of the better contemporaries to come out of South Australia and this year’s new collection – now the perfect chance (excuse) to get in and secure a few.
Christian Louboutin HappyRui Sneakers
Taking cues from the tennis courts of the ‘70s, the HappyRui delivers a white mesh toe, orange suede and glossy black heel with a dash of glitter (it’s Louboutin, after all). With its glow-in-the-dark ‘sun centre’ tongue it’s beyond anything Björn Borg may have sported – but perhaps dad is a louder character, indeed, a McEnroe fan?
Louis Vuitton Météore
Météore—French for ‘meteor’—proves a welcome and appealing addition to Louis Vuitton’s existing collection of five male fragrances. Featuring spiced notes with a sense of layered masculinity (hello spicy pepper, cardamom, vetiver wood) and a citrus freshness (mandarin, orange, grapefruit) the scent arrives in an elegant bottle that can be refilled at a local LV boutique.
100 ml EDP, $440; 200ml EDP $680; au.louisvuitton.com
Rimowa Essential Cactus Luggage
Rimowa has introduced two new colours to its Essential suitcase collection. Drawing on the colours of the desert means a dusty pink ‘desert rose’ alongside a green ‘cactus’. Available in a range of sizes, the polycarbonate construction is fashioned in Rimowa’s signature ridged exterior and promises to be as hardwearing as you’d expect from the German label.
From $1,020; rimowa.com
IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph “Orlebar Brown” Edition
As part of its collaboration with menswear label Orlebar Brown, IWC recently released an updated rendition of its Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph. Here, a 44mm stainless steel case surrounds a blue dial fixed to a coordinating navy textile-inlaid rubber strap. The timepiece is accented with shades of red and white, à la Orlebar Brown, with water resistance to 61 metres and a 68-hour power reserve.
P. Johnson A.S.O Havanna Brown Sunglasses
Local tailoring label P.Johnson recently launched an eyewear collection – and just in time. We think these A.S.O sunglasses (named after Aristotle Onassis) made in Northern Italy and with Barberini glass are perfect for dad – though don’t overlook your own eyes with two pairs?
Amouage Interlude Black Iris
The latest fragrance to be released from the Middle Eastern perfume house, Amouage Interlude Black Iris boasts a spicy, woody perfume created with 25 per cent fragrance oil promising strong sillage and longevity. Top notes include bergamot, rosemary and violet, while amber, myrrh vanilla make up the middle and leather oud and patchouli round out the base.
For more than a few family happy snaps, the M10.R boasts 40.89-megapixel full-frame sensors and an ISO range of up to 50,000. The old man will appreciate the old-school feel of the iconic Leica design, as well as mod-cons such as 3-inch touchscreen and built in wi-fi.
PittyVaich 29-Year Old
A rare drop from a distillery that’s been closed since 1993, this 29-year-old is double matured in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso casks bringing an exotic, rich, fruity depth to the light, golden aromas and flavours. With only 4976 bottles available, this is a special release for a special occasion.
