Hype Means Everything http://www.hypemeanseverything.com Your daily hype magazine for fashion, luxury and lifestyle. Sun, 07 Dec 2014 16:31:25 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 Aberlour Wood Essence Coffret http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/2014/12/07/aberlour-wood-essence-coffret/ http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/2014/12/07/aberlour-wood-essence-coffret/#comments Sun, 07 Dec 2014 16:31:25 +0000 http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/?p=18452 AHC_Visuel_Coffret_Ouvert_Eric_Zeziola

It is just that time of the year when you need to make that annual Christmas wish list and we have a lovely idea for you. Or for someone else for that matter! Here is Aberlour’s Wood Essence coffret is a work of art composed of three Aberlour single malts and an original edition of the famous A’Bunadh. While most whiskies are maturing mostly in bourbon casks and than in Sherry casks for a very short period of times, Aberlour’s single malts mature in both for at least 20 years to develope very complex woodish aromas. The coffret includes the following goodies:

ABERLOUR 15 years old
First Fill* Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butt
Cask strength Non chill-filtered** 59,3% vol., cask n°7502

ABERLOUR 15 years old
Second Fill* Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butt
Cask strength Non chill-filtered** 57% vol., cask n°4334

ABERLOUR 17 years old
First Fill* Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butt
Cask strength Non chill-filtered** 56%vol., cask n°5938

ABERLOUR A’bunadh
Selected First Fill* Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butts
Cask strength 60,6% vol., AHC special batch

I can only speak about the A’Bunadh tasting notes, but if each of the three single malts is as good as the A’Bunadh, then I got to extend my Aberlour collection asap: noze is full of cinnamon and dry grape fruit while the taste is syrupy, soft like an apricot, sweet like caramel with a dry, pear-scented finish. Sorry I sound just like an alcoholic but God this is as good as it gets!

Introducing the Huawei Honor 6 http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/2014/11/02/introducing-the-huawei-honor-6/ http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/2014/11/02/introducing-the-huawei-honor-6/#comments Sun, 02 Nov 2014 17:05:02 +0000 http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/?p=18435 Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

Just when I’m bored with my iPhone 5S being slow and full of software bugs, just when I’m really angry at Apple for being such a shitty mainstream brand, I find out Huawei is releasing the latest edition of the Honor smartphone in Europe. It’s basically a high-powered, large screen, high def camera-equiped smartphone with an Android OS. It simply does what my iPhone doesn’t feel like doing these days: quick app changes, no-freeze web browsing, intelligent Google features (like how do I get home in a few finger taps, quick notification swipes, full Google integration, free cloud back-ups, real password ingration across devices through Chrome…). I wouldn’t say life changing upgrade but for half the price of an iPhone, you get everything I mentionned above plus longer life battery, customizable OS and themes, standard USB charging cables (thank god) and many more not-so-anectodic details. Check out more screegrabs after the break ang get a product tour here.

MrPorter.com x Orlebar Brown Limited Edition Beach Bag http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/2014/08/08/mrporter-com-x-orlebar-brown-limited-edition-beach-bag/ http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/2014/08/08/mrporter-com-x-orlebar-brown-limited-edition-beach-bag/#comments Fri, 08 Aug 2014 11:21:16 +0000 http://www.hypemeanseverything.com/?p=18429 ILLUSTRATION de patrick leger

Orlebar Brown, one of our favourite beach essential brand, has been on our radars for a long time now. And while some brands sort of fade out and never really come out of the confidential stands of the fashion week tradeshows, we’re glad to see that Orlebar Brown does what it takes to rise and shine. Their swimming shorts have been a hit on MrPorter.com for some time now and as a celebration of their successful collaboration, Orlebar and the men’s go-to online retail store have organized a nice happening in Saint-Tropez on August 9. Handsome guys (I’ve been told) will ride around town distributing a special edition of the Mr Porter Journal featuring not only a selection of summer essentials but also some of Saint-Tropez’ most beautiful beach locations for you to enjoy your summer! Besides, a bag full of cool items (an Orlebar Brown beach towel,  Mr Porter’s Paperback, a pen, a portable loudspeaker, postcards…) will be presented in a very limited edition in various luxury hotels in Saint-Tropez (hotel Sezz, hotel Saint Amour, La Tartane, hotel Muse and a few luxurious villas across the village). I wish I was still there this weekend!

“Restaurants and bars offer architects and interior designers the opportunity to design for both style and entertainment. Aesthetics and function must come together to create ambiance and conviviality in a way that not only makes a bold first impression, but also secures a loyal following of regular customers” (quoted from Taschen website). The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards—the world’s only awards dedicated to hospitality design—recognize the importance of this particular field, singling out the world’s most exceptional settings for eating and drinking

Divided into five chapters (for each continent), this Taschen book features 100 highlights from the establishments put forward to the panel. Either you’re looking for new designs for your home, or basically want to know about the most designed restaurants of your city, this book is a must-have on your coffee table.
