agnès b. Styliste Book Launch for the Brand’s 40th Anniversary


Echoing the brand’s 40th anniversary, Agnès Troublé, founder and designer of agnès b., has her very first biography “agnès b. STYLISTE”.  In celebration of the book launch, Madam Agnès b. made her presence in Hong Kong on 24th November for her book launch and signing party after her first book tour stop in Tokyo. The book launch and signing party was held at K11 agnès b RUE DE MARSEILLE where she unveiled the multi-faceted world of agnès b. to all her fashion, arts and culture enthusiast-supporters!


Agnès b. (born Agnès Troublé) was born in 1941 in Versailles, where it encased the memories of her childhood. Growing up in a family with four siblings and later married to Christian Bourgois, Agnès’s father always encouraged her to explore music and arts. She joined ELLE magazine as a junior fashion editor, and also worked as a stylist at Dorothée Bis and Cacharel. In 1975, Agnès opened her first shop on rue du Jour in Paris, expanding into men’s and children’s in 1981. She created her subsidiaries in the Netherlands (1983), Japan (1984) and the UK (1987). agnès b. arrived in Hong Kong in 1995. Today, the agnès b. group has over 300 stores worldwide.


Since the beginning, Agnès has been creating clean yet timeless pieces for every collection, defining her own vocabulary while mixing classic fashion codes with modern chic style. The unforgettable pieces, adaptable to any and all styles of the moment, eventually proliferate into a reputable international fashion empire. “40 years flies by and I am glad to have grown gracefully with my brand.  I feel so blessed to have walked through this journey with all my dear friends, who shaped me, influenced me, moved me deeply,” Agnès said, “Working on my biography gave me a chance to look back at many remarkable moments for the brand any myself, and I want to say a big thank you to my team in France, Europe, the United States, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China – everyone who’s been here through it all.”

For her visit to Hong Kong, Agnès further, “I do not believe in borders and differences but rather in crossing cultural lines. In every country, I no doubt speak to the same people, with perhaps some of the same desires, who watch the same movies or listen, more or less, to the same popular music. I am delighted to visit Hong Kong again and meet friends who share the same taste and values.”

Has Contemporary Etiquette been Overlooked?

Has Contemporary Etiquette been Overlooked?

Having been known as the polished TV personality at Dolce Vita on Pearl Television and a well dressed bowtie emcee at multiple international corporate events, Desmond So has long been an active advocate for etiquette in a city like Hong Kong. With one of a kind background excelling in J.D. and M.B.A. in the States, he has come up with the idea to start “Not Just The Right Fork” when he was working in private banking in Hong Kong and noticing the margin for improvements for lots of people on formalized etiquette and communications skills training. After the growing realization that there is a need to split the business models post launching his first venture, an executive decision has been made that “Not just the Right Fork” would focus entirely on children while a new company “East-West Institute of Applied Etiquette” would cater to adults, executives and professionals in Hong Kong, Macau and China. One of the worst experiences of etiquette that Desmond has encountered previously was with two children that he was coaching and during those few hours spending time with them, he realized their behaviors were a result of parental neglect more than being ill-mannered. By talking with them and offering a sympathetic ear, Desmond got them to open up and was able to make some changes in their behaviors after just 2 hours.

1Desmond believes that a key component of etiquette is respect. He never faults people for not knowing the small nitty-gritty principles but one should always respect others and practice basic human decency. When someone is rude not because he or she doesn’t know a technical rule but because he or she chooses to treat others with ill will or contempt, Desmond then finds it deplorable and unacceptable.

Desmond points out that when meeting somebody, people tend to notice a person’s physical attributes first, which include height, posture, features, facial expressions, hair, makeup, attire and accessories but close on the heels of physical attributes are body language, voice, and conversation and he thinks that it behooves people to get all of these things right when greeting others. These are the public figures who have caught his attention whom he finds them to have high sense of etiquette: Government à Ms. Carrie Lam (Chief Secretary); Private Sector à Mr. Daryl Ng (Sino Group); Media à Mr. Robin Hu (SCMP); and Entertainment à Mr. Anderson Junior 安德尊 (Actor/Presenter).

Etiquette can be very broad and refer to generally prescribed conduct relating to social behaviors or it can refer to narrow guidelines specific to an occasion or activity (e.g., dining etiquette). From Desmond’s observations, one area that finance and fintech professionals in Hong Kong can improve on imminently is business attire. Perhaps because a lack of education in this area along with external factors like the influence of K-pop; his human resource friends have been informing him that business dress code is heading down a slippery slope and needs to be reined in despite the fact that etiquette has become more relaxed over time. Some of the egregious behaviors in workplace or in common social functions that Desmond has noticed are bad table manners (burping; being rude to waitstaff; picking teeth at table; etc.) and poor business etiquette (weak handshakes; failure to use people’s titles; getting too friendly too quickly; inappropriate attire; etc.)

Etiquette is constantly changing.  A generation ago, people wrote hand-written letters to each other. Some millennials nowadays have never written a formal hand-written letter. More recently, most people who were used to writing emails for business would not have anticipated yet another disruptive shift to mobile apps such as WeChat and WhatsApp, which takes informality to a whole different level. When asked about how Desmond and his company can shape the future of etiquette, he said “our vision remains to create a more polite, caring, and civil society and to change the way the rest of the world perceives individuals and businesses from Hong Kong, Macau, and China. Every person should practice the same set of etiquette and treat people with respect and decency.  There is no class of persons who should be doing things ‘differently’ by virtue of their vocation or industry.”

The majority of people that East-West Institute of Applied Etiquette teaches are business executives or young adults entering a formal business environment.  Erring on the side of conservatism would be well advised and appropriate. Desmond also added, “do not confuse being polite with being socially or professionally inapt. Just because someone is well-mannered, well-spoken, does not raise his voice, and says ‘thank you’ a lot does not undermine his ability to convey ideas effectively, act confidently, and achieve what he wants.  A well-mannered person is not a pushover.”

Low-Cost Airfare Can Come With Surprisingly High Fees for In-Flight Snacks and Services

Low-Cost Airfare Can Come With Surprisingly High Fees for In-Flight Snacks and Services

Travel search engine reveals how low-cost carriers are marking up snack prices and charging fees for baggage and seat selection

In-flight snacks and refreshments on low-cost carriers are marked up by more than 7 times their market prices
Checked baggage fees up to HK$570 on low-cost carriers’s Fee Calculator shows extra charges for more transparent travel planning


Hong Kong, 23 June 2016: Low-cost carriers (“LCCs”) such as HK Express, Jetstar, and Tigerair have become increasingly popular among Hong Kong travellers. While these carriers provide amazing savings on airfares, some fliers are unaware of what other fees and markups can apply. To help travellers budget more accurately, reveals LCCs’ snack markups and other extra fees.

Pack some snacks or pay sky-high prices on board
Travellers often expect to pay more for snacks and drinks while travelling on LCCs. But research has revealed that some are charging prices for snacks and drinks that are just ‘plane’ crazy.  For example, a beer costs, on average, 360% more up in the air than at a supermarket. Bottled soda was revealed to be the worst offender. A 250ml can of soda costs HK$22.60 (S$4.00) on Tigerair, and just HK$5.60 for 500ml on the ground (a 707% markup). Sky-high prices were also uncovered on everyday snack items; HK Express charges as much as HK$25.00 for 40g of potato crisps (HK$68.75 per 110g) while the supermarket price is only HK$12.50 for 110g – a three figure increase of 450%. To avoid high markups, have something to eat prior to flying, or pack some snacks to bring on board.

Pack light and nice or pay a heavy charge
LCC tickets normally allow travellers to bring hand luggage with a weight of 7-10kg onboard. However, if travellers wish to check baggage in the hold, extra fees apply. HK Express, Jetstar, and Tigerair charge HK$150-260 for a 20kg baggage allowance during the initial booking process; note that this is per short-haul flight. At the airport, if travellers wish to purchase the equivalent baggage allowance, this cost can increase up to HK$570 (a 280% increase). Avoid these hefty fees by planning ahead or simply by packing light.

Nicer seats come with a price tag
When booking flights with LCCs, travellers will often have pre-assigned seats. Additional charges will be incurred should travellers wish to change their seats. Among the same 3 popular LCCs in Hong Kong, the option to reserve a specific seat online is available with varying price tags. A standard seat costs HK$34, HK$35, and HK$45 for Tigerair, Jetstar, and HK Express, respectively.  Seats near the front or seats with extra legroom range from HK$73 to HK$200. To avoid extra costs, travellers should arrive at the airport a little early to request a seat change, at the check-in desk.

All of these extra fees add up and need to be taken into consideration when travel planning. Debby Soo, Vice President APAC at KAYAK reminds travellers to be mindful of the airlines’ terms of use and all extra costs before booking tickets to find the most suitable travel product. “ strives to be Hong Kongers’ best travel companion, providing the best tools for travel and planning. To help budget efficiently, our Fee Calculator allows travellers to select a preferred payment method, the number of checked bags, and includes any extra fees in the total price when searching for flights.”

OSLO – More Than Meets the Eye. New OSLO Loudspeaker, Signed by VIFA

OSLO – More Than Meets the Eye. New OSLO Loudspeaker, Signed by VIFA

Perfectly groomed and with magnificent musical qualities, the new Oslo-loudspeaker from Vifa is truly fit for its function as a compact carry-along Bluetooth loudspeaker with authentic sound. Being genuine. Being authentic. Being essential. Vifa’s new loudspeaker has been carefully modeled around the Vifa brand’s core values. The design language is distinctively Nordic with an intriguing, raw simplicity, but Oslo is so much more than meets the eye. Designers and engineers at Vifa have indeed collaborated to obtain an impressive, large-scale sound from this uniquely ear-blowing Bluetooth loudspeaker – while still keeping it at an accessible, acceptable size.


“The challenge with Oslo was to create a product that produces a powerful, potent reproduction of music and yet has that understated, elegant design fitting into any interior. Since music today is mobile, we wanted an agile product you can easily move around in your home. Therefore we went for the upright lines, allowing for a small footprint. This means Oslo takes up little space – but still has the physics for a full-bodied reproduction of music at impressive playback volume,” explains Chief Design Engineer Mikael Ankersen.


Oslo is a unique loudspeaker-experience, but still it carries the same DNA as the other loudspeakers in Vifa’s acclaimed Nordic series. The materials have been carefully chosen in order to convey the core value of true Nordic authenticity: A special-designed textile cover from Kvadrat gives the loudspeaker a genuinely groomed look. And its solid aluminium frame underlines the idea of a robust premium product. Colorwise, Oslo is available in a range of timeless shades: Sand Yellow, Ocean Blue, Ice Blue, Anthracite Grey, and Pebble Grey. Finally, the discretely embossed logo and embroidered interface that has become Vifa’s signature in the Nordic series, allow Oslo to blend discretely in to any interior.



Oslo is the fourth wireless loudspeaker launched by Danish manufacturer Vifa in only three years. It continues to build on the solid experience and the proud craftsmanship of the Vifa brand that has its roots back to the early 1930’s where the company was founded. The strive for exquisite quality and superior, technological know-how has been dusted off over the later years where a stronger focus on product-design and Nordic elegance has been added to the Vifa products. Without compromising on the authentic sound which has been a core value for the brand throughout the years.

BOSE Introduces Wireless QC Noise Cancelling Headphones and Wireless Sport Headphones

BOSE Introduces Wireless QC Noise Cancelling Headphones and Wireless Sport Headphones

All New QuietComfort® 35 and QuietControl™ 30 Redefine Noise Cancellation
All New SoundSport® and SoundSport Pulse for Better Workouts

June 16, 2016 — The headphones that revolutionized an industry are set to do it again — wirelessly.  Today, Bose announces the QuietComfort 35 around-ear headphones and the QuietControl 30 in-ear headphones, both shattering the limitations of existing wireless noise cancelling headphones with an entirely new experience for traveling, commuting, creating, studying, or relaxing.  The QC35 lets you tune out completely with the same remarkable silence of Bose’s wired QuietComfort headphones.  And the QC30 adds something new — a breakthrough feature that puts noise control in your hands, letting you adjust how much surrounding sound you block out or let in.  Against a backdrop of quiet, the new QC35 and QC30 reproduce music with stunning clarity at any volume.  The QC35 is available in Hong Kong beginning June 21, 2016 for HKD2,888; the QC30 will be available beginning September 2016 for HKD2,588.

Bose also announces the all-new SoundSport and SoundSport Pulse headphones, each resetting expectations for wireless workouts.  Designed exclusively for exercise, SoundSport wireless headphones present an unbeatable combination of benefits for training.  They feature great audio for playlists, a stable and comfortable fit, and durability for daily use inside or out.  For tracking personal performance, SoundSport Pulse wireless headphones come with a built-in heart rate monitor measured through the ear for a precise, accurate reading.  The SoundSport headphones hit the market beginning June 21, 2016 for HKD1,388; the SoundSport Pulse is available beginning September 2016 for HKD1,788.

All of Bose’s new wireless headphones include NFC for touch-to-pair convenience, super-intuitive controls for music and calls, voice prompts for key information including setup, caller ID and battery life, and the free Bose Connect app for even more functionality.

“Until now, great wireless noise cancellation and better wireless workouts have been more of a dream than reality,” said Bernice Cramer, General Manager of Bose Wireless Headphones.  “Like the QuietComfort headphones before them, the performance of the QC30 and QC35 are way ahead of where the market is right now.  And for the millions of people who run, bike, hike or hit the gym, SoundSport headphones offer a new kind of alternative, because they’re not just named for exercise — they’re made for it.”

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones - Silver 2

We live in an increasingly noisy world, and the new QC35 around-ear headphones offer the best noise cancellation available anywhere — from a wired or wireless headphone — and a custom-engineered Bluetooth®system for a strong and consistent connection anywhere.

With microphones inside and outside the earcups, the QC35 senses, measures and sends unwanted sounds to two proprietary digital electronic chips — one for each ear — which respond with a precise, equal and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond.  The result is dramatic and exclusive to Bose.  In an instant, the rumble of a subway car, plane engine, or the commotion from rush hour all but disappear.  Stay in silence, or hear your music more clearly with a new EQ that balances sound at every volume, for any genre.

The QC35 has up to 20 hours of battery life from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, lasting longer than a flight from New York to Hong Kong.  Simple buttons are on the right earcup: on/off, music volume, play/pause, and answer/end calls.

While the QC35 is packed with proprietary technology for performance, the finer details of materials, build and finish are equally precise.  They’re refined yet rugged, lightweight yet stable, with legendary Bose comfort.

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones - Silver

Our lives are getting more hectic with more to manage, and the QC30 headphone is a technical tour-de-force to make every day better.  Its noise cancellation is so advanced for a wireless in-ear design, there’s nothing else like it in the industry.  And they debut a new, robust Bluetooth system that works reliably in changing surroundings.

The QC30 headphones feature tiny earbuds that integrate a total of six microphones, and a sleek neckband that houses the rest of the advanced electronics system for take-anywhere performance.  For wherever you are or whatever you’re doing, a new Bose breakthrough — controllable noise cancellation — puts you in charge of how much of the world you shut out.  From needing awareness on a busy sidewalk, to complete isolation for work, to taking a call from home in a crowded cafe — the QC30 lets owners choose what they hear.  Turn its noise cancellation up or down, not on or off, and it adapts to the level you set without changing your music volume.  To hear every note from your favorite tracks and artists, the QC30 uses a new EQ customized for its size and design.  With distractions on mute, a dime-size enclosure never sounded better.

The QC30 has up to 10 hours of battery life from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, lasting as long as a fully-charged phone or tablet.  Simple buttons are on an in-line remote:  music volume, play/pause, answer/end calls, and noise control.

The QC30 features StayHear®+ tips, the often-imitated-but-never-duplicated Bose innovation that eliminates the pressure and aches of conventional ear tips for hours and hours of wear.

While the QC35 and QC30 use microphones for noise cancellation and controllable noise cancellation, they also use a dual-mic system to reject the annoying background sounds that interfere with talking.  Wind and crowds fade.  Text-to-speech accuracy is improved with Siri® and other phone VPAs.  Conversations are clearer, voices sound natural, and every word can be heard on both ends.

SoundSport wireless headphones - Black, Aqua, Citron

Headphones are an essential part of working out, but wireless models can still get in the way with designs that hurt, aren’t stable, and sound weak. SoundSport headphones make wireless training better.  They use a special sport-version of StayHear+ tips designed to stay secure and comfortable during exercise.  Made from soft, flexible silicone, their umbrella shape creates a gentle seal in the ear, while an extended wing “locks” in the fit.

For indoors or outside, SoundSport headphones are sweat and water resistant with powerful audio performance.  Their inline mic and remote let users stay focused while skipping songs, adjusting volume, or taking and making calls.

The SoundSport Pulse headphones include a built-in heart rate monitor with the precision of a chest strap, so you can have one amazing product to pump your music and track your progress.  And it’s compatible with Runkeeper, Endomondo and other fitness apps.

SoundSport headphones can complete a marathon with charge to spare. The SoundSport Pulse has up to 5 hours of battery life and SoundSport has up to 6 hours.

The free Bose Connect app gives each Bose wireless headphone more functionality.  Its interface is so clean and minimal, it’s familiar on the first use.  Owners can connect and switch between Bluetooth devices, update software, personalize their voice prompt language and more.  For the QC30, the Bose Connect app will include the controllable noise cancellation feature to increase awareness or decrease noise; for the SoundSport Pulse, it will show your real-time heart rate.  The new Bose Connect app will add new headphone “skills” over time.

The QuietComfort 35 headphones come in Black and Silver; the QuietControl 30 headphones come in Black; SoundSport wireless headphones come in Black and Aqua now, and Citron in September; the SoundSport Pulse headphones come in Power Red.  StayHear+ tips for the QC30 and SoundSport headphones are included in three sizes:  small, medium and large.

All new headphones will be sold through Bose stores and select authorized dealers.  The Bose Connect app is available for download now on the App Store® or Google Play.

Montblanc 110 for The Pioneer – Pen‧Write Hong Kong

Montblanc 110 for The Pioneer – Pen‧Write Hong Kong

mont blanc

Over the past hundred years, Hong Kong has witnessed transformations from an industrialized city to international financial center, from service economy to creative economy. Owing to the conscientiousness and restless efforts of Hong Kongers in making innovations, chasing dreams to creating history, the fishing port has turned into a metropolis with countless rags-to-riches stories.

The pioneering spirit that revolutionized the culture of writing has been a driving force for Montblanc since 1906. Montblanc developed a writing instrument with non-leaking technology and a piston convertor that changed the course of writing history forever. The six-point white star, representing the six snow-covered glaciers of the majestic mountain, became the Maison’s emblem, and feature on every writing instrument manufactured by Montblanc ever since.

Montblanc - 筆寫先鋒故事- 鍾景輝1

Montblanc, carrying the spirit of pioneering, perseverance and wisdom, forges ahead and writes new history with Hong Kong. A pen symbolizes history, culture, spiritual heritage and precious memories of the old days.

Little Tai Hang opens 2016

Little Tai Hang opens 2016

A dining and hospitality destination in Hong Kong’s quaint and charming
Tai Hang that celebrates local creativity and culture

Screen Shot 2016-05-14 at 12.03.12 am

(Hong Kong, 9 May 2016) Tucked away in the quaint streets of Tai Hang, Little Tai Hang is a neighbourhood destination which celebrates the character and charm of Hong Kong with bespoke artisanal touches. Set to be a magnet for savvy travellers looking for a home away from home, and a much loved destination for locals, Tai Hang is an area known for good eats and relaxing vibes. It is an enchanting neighbourhood full of stories waiting to be explored.

Little Tai Hang is perfect for short and long term stays in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. The new hotel and serviced apartments opening later this year will be part of a neighbourhood lifestyle choice complete with local cuisine, living and design brands under one roof, a truly modern Hong Kong cultural experience. Amazingly, it is located just footsteps from Causeway Bay, one of Hong Kong’s busiest shopping and entertainment districts, and the green landscape of Victoria Park.

Design centric with creativity and quirkiness seen throughout the space, Little Tai Hang is purpose-built to provide quality hospitality with real personality, a concept developed by Tommy Pao, founder, architect and cultural advocate of the project. Each of the 121 luxury rooms are filled with bespoke, characterful and creative local touches that complement the sweeping views of Victoria Harbour and the parks in the neighbourhood, visible from every room.

“Travellers are looking for real experiences. At Little Tai Hang we bring Hong Kong’s unique modern culture into the living space while providing an upscale experience for business and leisure travellers alike. Sophisticated yet down to earth, quiet yet in the heart of the city. These contrasts bring an edge to the brand that we hope appeals to those looking for something off the beaten track yet totally accessible,” said Pao, who is also Senior Manager of property developers Cornes World Co. Ltd.

Located close to the MTR, Victoria Park and Causeway Bay, Little Tai Hang is easily accessible to Central and Hong Kong East, making it a convenient hidden-yet-handy gem. Surrounding the property will be six upcoming luxury residential projects including Pavilia Hill, Warrenwoods, The Warren, Park Haven, Yoo Residence and Jones Hive which means the Little Tai Hang neighbourhood is the hottest destination in town.

Guests and future residents of the property will be pampered with top-of-the-line personal services and facilities, including the fitness room, dining room, laundry room and function room as well as gain recommendations for dining, shopping and exploration in the neighbourhood.

Little Tai Hang is home to two exciting F&B concepts. Second Draft, a convivial neighbourhood gastropub, offers a comprehensive beverage menu including fresh & locally brewed beers by the Young Master Brewery along with creative dishes by Chef May Chow. Restaurant Bond by the Three Monkeys serves comfort fare designed to share in a casual, welcoming hang-out for family and friends to gather and, as the name suggests, bond. Both opening this June.

Little Tai Hang is the place for all – for in-the-know travellers to immerse themselves into authentic Hong Kong culture, for inquisitive city walkers to experience the hidden stories in the neighbourhood and for trendsetters to catch the latest art, fashion and culinary scene in the city.

Key Dates:
Second Draft by the Young Master Brewery and Chef May opens June 2016

Bond by Three Monkeys opens June 2016
Little Tai Hang hotel and serviced apartments open later this year

Exclusive: Behind the scenes with Little Mix

Not just for guilt-free hair styling; ghd stylers are also the faux microphone of choice for Little Mix.

Spotted backstage while filming their video for Hair, which is released on Wednesday 20th April, the Little Mix girls were belting the lyrics for the new single into ghd serene pearl platinum® stylers while dancing around Leigh-Anne’s bedroom.


Not only do they look amazing – the no compromise ghd platinum serene pearl stylers take the guilt out of heat styling by using safer-for-hair heat that delivers ultimate styling results in just one stroke.

What’s more, hair is also proven to be healthier*, stronger* and shinier**, as showcased by Little Mix’s lovely manes; it’s no wonder these limited edition ghd stylers have become the most in-demand styling tool since they launched earlier this month.

Whether they’re singing into them (we’ve all been there, as has David Beckham, and we love that Little Mix do it too!) or styling their hair with them, the Little Mix girls are keeping a tight grip on their new ghd platinum serene pearl stylers – get one before they sell out!

Learn the art of traditional Japanese Matsuya-style hand-drip coffee or
Experience Bikram Yoga with Alex Lam.


The Matsuya-style method — discovered by Matsuya Coffee Co. (est. 1909) from Nagoya, Japan — is a traditional, hand-drip coffee-brewing technique that crafts a clear and flavourful brew, free from astringent, harsh and other unpleasant tastes. A wire-frame dripper is key to this method, handmade by craftsman in Japan that allows coffee grounds to expand as much as possible during the wetting process. This generates a unique, delicious taste with a distinctive aroma. Leading this exclusive workshop will be Ms. Eumi Yeung, who studied Matsuya-Style brewing in Nagoya and has experience working in numerous cafes in the past.

START DATE: April 30, 2016
PRICE: HKD 380 per student
**Each participant will receive 500grams of Matsuya coffee beans
(Appointments Only: Every Tuesday to Saturday afternoon; 2 sessions per day)


Bikram Yoga is a style of yoga that Bikram Choudhury synthesized from traditional hatha yoga techniques and popularized in the early 1970s. The objective of introducing this workshop at usagi is to contribute to the cultivation of wellness amongst Hong Kong people, creating a beautiful mind that increases the consciousness of self and body. Leading the workshop will be Mr Alex Lam, a professional licensed yoga instructor who previously taught for five years in Los Angeles. He is a singer and actor, and the son of iconic Cantopop star, George Lam.

START DATE: April 30, 2016
PRICE: HKD300 per student / HKD1000 for private class
** Suitable for all levels of yoga students
(Appointments Only: every Tuesday to Saturday afternoon; 2 sessions per day)


To complement the exclusive Matsuya-style coffee and Bikram Yoga workshops, usagi Hong Kong proudly presents a complete lifestyle experience with its latest retail range. The new range of specialist and handcrafted coffee utensils and merchandise, sourced from all over Japan, includes Japanese-roasted coffee beans, glass cups, mugs, canisters, drippers, kettles and carafes. The JadeYoga line from the U.S. includes PVC-/EVA-/synthetic-free yoga mats (whereby Jade plants a tree for every mat sold), natural balsa wood yoga blocks (whereby Jade preserves 100 square feet of rainforest for every block sold) and microfiber yoga towels (whereby Jade will provide one month’s worth of clean drinking water for one person in the developing world for every towel sold).

Montblanc M was awarded the 2016 Red Dot; Best of the Best Award in Product Design

Montblanc M was awarded the 2016 Red Dot; Best of the Best Award in Product Design

A new definition of writing instruments designed by Marc Newson

This year, the Montblanc M collection was awarded for the Red Dot: Best of the Best, which is the top prize in the Red Dot Award: Product Design. This prize is reserved for the best products in a category.With the launch of the Montblanc M writing instrument, the Maison demonstrates the passion for innovation that has always been part of Montblanc’s DNA, continuously pushing the boundaries of design with timelessly elegant and high-performing creations. Through its collaboration with designer Marc Newson, Montblanc has developed a new aesthetic language, capturing the spirit of the moment in a writing instrument that expresses the modernity of today and the timeless elegance of tomorrow.


For the first ever design partnership in the Maison’s long history, Montblanc has chosen to work with Marc Newson, without a doubt the most influential designer of his generation”, says Jérôme Lambert, Montblanc CEO. “Montblanc M brings together Newson’s trademark biomorphic style, defined by its fluid and pure organic forms, and Montblanc’s iconic design cues, resulting in a new and unexpected expression for writing instruments.”

In an original approach to the craftsmanship with which Montblanc is synonymous, Newson brings innovative design elements to the writing experience, perfectly balancing form and function with an object that has both a rational existence and makes a bold aesthetic statement. Functionality is expressed in the ingenious use of a magnet that allows the magnetic closing of the cap and barrel, with perfect alignment of the clip to the innovative “plateau” at the barrel end. An additional snap mechanism smoothens the closure and ensures the cap remains firmly in place. For the first time ever, a Montblanc writing instrument takes on an additional function, as a Fineliner pen for technical and precision drawing.

While Newson has retained distinctive design elements of a Montblanc writing instrument including the use of black precious resin and the iconic white emblem, the shape of Montblanc M stands out with a “plateau” at the end of the writing instrument created by milling the polished black resin with a diamond tool. The fluidity of the overall design is achieved by avoiding breaks in the pure lines of the shape. Thus, the Montblanc emblem made of white precious resin is ultrasonically welded onto the plateau to form a perfectly flat surface, while the platinum-plated clip is mounted invisibly into the cap to not interrupt the design flow. For an optimal writing experience, the ruthenium-plated metal forepart engraved with “MONTBLANC”, balances the weight of the writing instrument. The AU585 gold nib of the writing instrument is plated in two tones for the first time, using both rhodium and ruthenium.

Inspired by the Maison’s heritage of sophistication, every design element comes together to deliver a multi-sensorial sensory writing experience, reflecting the discerning customer’s increasing desire to slow down, disconnect and enjoy products that bring the senses together: a piece to be seen, felt and heard all at once. “Like Montblanc, I seek to strike a balance in the design between the simplicity of the functional qualities of this product and the creation of a sensory experience in its use,” explains Marc Newson. “From the sight of the shape’s clean lines or the detailed plating of the nib, from the touch and feel of the writing instrument with its polished surface and ruthenium forepart, to the sound of the click of the cap as it is drawn to the body of the writing instrument with the magnet, Montblanc M offers a seamless writing experience that engages the senses.”

With this new generation of writing instruments, Montblanc continues to redefine the culture of writing, crafting fine lifetime companions that deliver the highest quality and unexpected cutting-edge design. Though it stands at the forefront of contemporary design today, it has been designed with the same timeless qualities as every Montblanc writing instrument. Montblanc M is available in Fountain Pen, Rollerball, Ballpoint Pen, ScreenWriter for use on touch screens and as a thin Montblanc Artfineliner for technical drawing. During the launch year only, the nib is engraved with the letters “MN” as a tribute to the designer who imagined this latest evolution in writing culture.

Montblanc M in collaboration with Marc Newson is available on September 2015 from Montblanc boutiques worldwide. For more information, visit

The SoundLink® around-ear wireless headphones II use proprietary technologies, including active equalization and new volume-optimized equalization, so your music is detailed and real at any volume. There are no manufactured boosts because they’re not needed for impact. What you hear is as close as possible to what was recorded, rather than re-created or altered. 

“We’ve never adjusted how a piece of music will sound when it’s reproduced because it’s not our music — it’s the artist’s music and it’s your music, and our job is to make it sound as good as it can,” said Cramer.   

For calls, the SoundLink® around-ear headphones II use an advanced microphone system, HD voice and adaptive audio adjustment technology for wind or noise. Volume is changed automatically based on speech level and changing environments, letting you move from a quiet building to a busy street without missing a word or fumbling for controls.

Bose Wireless Functionality
The SoundLink® around-ear headphones II offer true wireless freedom.  It starts with up to 15 hours of battery life on a single charge — 25% more than the industry standard. If you’re in a rush or on the go, a quick 15-minute charge will provide up to two hours of play time through the included USB cable. The experience gets better from there.  With multi-point, you can stay simultaneously connected to two devices, making it possible to watch a movie or sports on your tablet, and take or make a call on your phone. And while conventional wireless headphones can have delays syncing audio and video, the SoundLink® headphones’ connection is seamless for enjoying videos or using FaceTime.  Pairing is more than easy, too. Tap the right earcup to pair for NFC-enabled devices, or just connect your Bluetooth® device via the latest Bluetooth technology. To switch between music and calls, you don’t need your phone. There are smart, intuitive controls on the headphone’s earcup that are fool-proof and one touch away. The SoundLink® headphones II also feature voice prompts (available in 11 different languages) to tell you who’s calling, what device you’re connected to, and how much battery life you have left.   

Bose Wireless Quality
SoundLink® headphones were built and tested in Bose labs to survive drops, bumps and grabs.  Their design is inspired by the QC®25 headphones, and they use impact-resistant materials, glass-filled nylon and corrosion-resistant stainless steel. Despite being packed with technology, they’re light and comfortable — weighing a mere 7 ounces — with soft ear cushions and a contoured headband.  And they fold flat for storage in a matching case.

The Bose
SoundLink® Story
Bose SoundLink® products have been globally recognized for delivering the standard for mobile wireless audio since their debut in 2011, when the very first SoundLink speaker was introduced. Since then, the SoundLink speaker line has dominated the Bluetooth speaker category, and the SoundLink® Mini speaker — now in its second generation — has become the most famous little speaker in the world. In 2014, the SoundLink® on-ear Bluetooth headphones were introduced with best-in-class performance, usability and durability.  Today, the SoundLink® around-ear wireless headphones II join the family, pushing wireless music further still with even better audio and unprecedented functionality.

The new Bose SoundLink® around-ear wireless headphones II come in two colors: Black and White.  They’re available now, for HK$2,280.  Bose SoundLink® on-ear wireless headphones will remain available for HK$2,100.  Both SoundLink® headphones are available at select authorized Bose dealers and Bose retail stores.
