Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

What makes you feel mas­cu­line? A pair of boots that I’ve had for­ever – they feel like they’ve kicked over a stone or two on a dirt road in Mon­tana and then spent the evening by the fire. What are the codes for a man to­day? In­tegrity and gen­eros­ity of spirit. El­e­gance does not only in­volve the clothes you wear; it has much more to do with how you con­duct your­self in this world. How do you feel about fragrance? Fra­grances, as with cloth­ing, say a lot about a per­son; it’s how you present your­self to the world. Just like a well-tai­lored suit, a cologne must fit just right. What do you think of the Armani Code film? It’s beau­ti­ful. Direc­tor An­drew Do­minik cre­ated such a spe­cific, mid-cen­tury feel, a bit fu­tur­ist and with an ar­chi­tec­ture that feels straight out of Bernardo Ber­tolucci’s The Con­form­ist. There’s a wash of blue to the colour of the film, which I think adds a sense of mys­tery. Which scene was the most dif­fi­cult? The first scene with the re­volv­ing door. It was dif­fi­cult for An­drew as he was look­ing for a par­tic­u­lar mood, but it was a joy for me – the first mo­ment I see the woman who catches my eye.Two strangers pass­ing on their re­spec­tive jour­neys glimpse one an­other, but in that mo­ment re­alise they must see each other again. I loved the con­cept! GIOR­GIO ARMANI CODE HOMME 75ML
