Paul Magi - An architectural approach to men's accessories‏

Paul Magí is a new men’s accessory brand which takes an architectural approach to design.
Defined by a masculine aesthetic, the design style expresses the structural details of a product.


Considering the needs of a contemporary well-travelled man, the starting point for the ‘Overnighter’ was a list of essential items for a one night stay, with a constraint to conform to airline carry-on size restrictions.

 Paul Magi, himself an architect, presents a brand that focuses on the use of sustainable and responsibly produced materials and components.


The ‘Overnighter’ uses water-resistant cotton canvas and vegetable tanned leathers to create a considered bag that features the Paul Magi logo embossed in an understated script.

 Signature reinforced leather bracing straps provide the ‘Overnighter’ with sufficient rigidity in its horizontal position, to pack clothes and buckle them into position with ease. The three compartments allow for clothing, laptop and personal items to be stored separately yet accessed easily. Stitching around the middle section showcases the technical padding for laptop protection.
 The distance between the handles of the Overnighter (175mm) is also considered detail, determined by the size of a man’s hand. This allows easy access to the front zipped pocket, deep enough to accommodate a jet-setters passport, airline tickets, and any other small items.
 Finally, the padded shoulder strap sums up the whole design philosophy; effortless style with the comfort of the user in mind.
Price £450

The design also sees the signature JOHNNIE WALKER RED LABEL colours feature in the stitching, inner sole and dust bag, while the leather is a tanned whisky colour. The launch comes as the whisky brand launches The Bold Collections; a series of ventures fusing drinks and design.

McLaren drivers signatures engraved on Gillette razor, smaller than a grain of sand

Gillette, the world’s leading male grooming brand, and McLaren Mercedes, one of the most prestigious and successful teams in F1 history, have created an unique piece of sport memorabilia razor so precise, you’ll need a microscope to see it.


Only five razors of this kind will reach consumers and each demonstrates the two brands’ passion for precision engineering. This precise memorabilia will be framed and awarded to the world’s biggest fans of Gillette and McLaren.


Gillette and McLaren have already put the performance of racing into consumers’ hands and their shaving experience by launching a Formula 1 inspired limited edition Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor pack. Now, they are pushing precision technology further, combining two icons of modern engineering in an unexpected way: by individually engraving the McLaren F1 MP4-29 car and McLaren drivers’ signatures each onto the edge of Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blades.


The result is a piece of memorabilia so precise, it’s invisible to the naked eye. A matter of micrometers makes this memorabilia the breakthrough it is: the engraving is just 0.7mm wide, and 0.24mm high – dimensions smaller than a grain of sand and even smaller than pinhead.  This was done with the help of a scanning electron microscope and an electron column which were used to project a focused beam of ions onto the conductive surface of the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blade. The nanoscientists involved in this project spent around 25-30 hours trying various different designs, sizes and ratios, to get the precise final result.
