SUNEET PAUL A veteran journalist of more than four decades, Suneet is Editor-in-Chief of Architecture+Design and our resident Yoda. When not immersed in matters of shape and form, you can catch him cooling off with a drink and discussing the evolution of man or the future of masculinity. He also dabbles in teaching, discourse and the occasional holiday to replenish his senses. ROSARIO BELMONTE Rosario left his native Sicily at 18 to explore his passion for fashion and beauty in Milan. He studied under Stefano Anselmo, one of Italy’s top makeup artists.

angel bling

For millions of people around the world, the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show is an event that’s as sexy as it gets. The most famous models in the world—dubbed the Angels—sashay down the ramp in beautiful lingerie, surrounded by decadent sets and superb performances (that have included Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift). The audience is both women and men because... you know. A big part of each of these shows is the unveiling of the Fantasy Bra, a bejewelled wonder valued at millions, adoring the Victoria’s Secret Angel of the moment. Over the years, this intricate undergarment has sparked drop-jawed fascination. The craftsmanship is unreal, but it is the sheer confidence of the wearer that makes this tiny garment an armour of sexiness. Many famous supermodels have worn the Fantasy Bra, including…

the return of bibliophilia!

Another year, another resolution. We might not be able to help with your willingness to hit the gym everyday (but you know we try) or to cut down on those weekly beer binges (we wouldn’t recommend it), but that one about reading more? We’ve got you covered. These titles have us excited and strengthening our resolve to read more this year. ROBICHEAUX by James Lee Burke James’ protagonist Dave Robicheaux returns with nightmares of his dead wife coupled with a rebound case of alcoholism. The plot thickens when Dave begins to investigate his wife’s murder and finds himself doubting his own self. This one like all of Burke’s, doles out a thrilling plot along with subtle social commentary on America which makes it exciting. BATMAN: NIGHTWALKER by Marie Lu In an era where there…

when love goes wrong

What do you do on Valentine’s Day, if not think about how much greener the grass is on the other side? If you find yourself in that spot this year, consider these films to put you in the mood to stay the heck away from love. I LOVE YOU DADDY 2017 Directed by: Louis C.K. Cast: Louis C.K., Rose Byrne, Chloe Grace Moretz, Helen Hunt, John Malkovich Perhaps, the creepiest film on this list, I Love You Daddy released just before allegations of Louis C.K.’s sexual misdemeanours surfaced. It is an account of an elderly director’s advances towards a teenage girl with her father well in the know of the director’s true intentions. Like with Horace and Pete, Louis C.K. once again brings a stellar cast to perform cringe-worthy scenes that include Charlie Day…

port’s revival

Welcome port back into the spotlight after so long a sojourn in the shadows. While the fortified wine hailing from Portugal’s Douro Valley is appearing as a trendy ingredient at cocktail bards, the best stuff is meant for sipping. So while port may be “new” once more, let’s be thankful that some exceedingly old stock has survived long enough for its current revival, offering a perfect opportunity to begin exploring. “Port has an amazing array of nuances,” says Cristiano van Zeller, whose family has been in the trade since 1620. His company, Van Zellers & Co., sourced the caskets for what would become the Centenario Port Duo, 1870 and 1970, for the Last Drop Distillers. The duo consists of two choice colheitas, or single-harvest tawny ports, from the same cellar along…

hungry city

It’s 3:00 at Sun Hing, a raucous dim sum parlour in Kennedy Town, the westernmost section of Hong Kong Island, and a crowd of tipsy night owls are competing for table space with early-bird old-timers. This is a true neighbourhood joint, the kind of place where menus in Chinese characters are posted on the wall and there’s not much table service. When fresh baskets of quail-egg dumplings and black-sugar cake leave the kitchen, it’s up to you to grab some before they’re gone. By the time Sun Hing readies to close for the day, 13 hours later, the crowd has shifted to university students and construction workers. There’s never a bad time to eat in Hong Kong, because people are always eating. For many people, five meals a day is par…
