5 Menswear Looks to Match 5 Porsches

The clothes horses at Men’s Folio also love fast cars. They put together five looks to go along with five Porsche models and got their ambassador, actor Lawrence Wong, to anchor this lovely spread. He kicks things off with the Porsche Cayman GTS (above), featuring himself in a Givenchy leather jacket, acetate sunglasses from Porsche Design and wool sweater and wool pants from Saint Laurent.

Porsche Cayman GTS

Contrary to popular belief, the name of the car does not refer to the Caribbean islands. Instead, Cayman is an alternative spelling of caiman, a Latin American alligator. When the first Caymans arrived at dealerships for sale, the automaker adopted four caimans at Stuttgart’s Wilhelma Zoo. Lawrence Wong fronts this shot in a three-piece suit from Dior Homme.

Porsche Panamera GTS

The Porsche Panamera production model was unveiled at the 13th Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show on April 2009. Since its debut, the full-size luxury car has become one of the best sellers of its class and has attracted some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Matthew Perry, Lindsay Lohan, and Ryan O’Neal. Lawrence Wong puts together the appropriate look with an all-Saint Laurent affair, from wool sweater and wool pants to leather jacket and leather boots. The acetate sunglasses are by Porsche Design.

Porsche Cayenne S

It was possibly the most talked about model in the Porsche portfolio. Porsche enthusiasts weren’t exactly sure what to make of luxury SUV from the celebrated sportscar maker. However, it has become one of the most sought-after luxury SUVs on the market, and its success silenced its critics. Today, some of the most prestigious sports carmakers are jumping on the bandwagon to produce their version of SUVs including Bentley and Lamborghini.

Porsche Boxster GTS

The Boxster’s name is derived from the word “boxer”, referring to the vehicle’s horizontally opposed or boxer engine. Right from the start, it was an instant hit, just four years after the Boxster’s debut in 1996, its sales volume had almost quadrupled to nearly 56,000 units. Lawrence Wong owns this look with a Saint Laurent wool jacket and Chopard Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 edition.Porsche-Boxster-GTS-MF-Dec-Jan

Mark Webber is new face of Porsche Design Fragrances

mark webber

Australian racing driver Mark Webber is to lend his face to the 2015-16 campaign for Porsche Design Fragrances, the brand announced on Friday.

Webber will feature in the campaign for Porsche Design Titan, a fragrance defined by notes of grapefruit and cedar wood in a purist high-tech flacon.

The former Formula One driver will this weekend contest the 24-Hour race of Le Mans along with fellow drivers Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley in a Porsche 919 hybrid.

The luxury brand Porsche Design was founded in 1972. Products are sold in the brand’s own shops, as well as in franchises, concessions, high-end department stores and specialist retailers, and at porsche-design.com.

Porsche Design P’9983

BlackBerry unveils Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone

Porsche Design P’9983

 today unveiled its premium BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone as the successor of the last year-launched P’9982.

This might seem like a strange decision, especially considering the amount of competition in the smartphone market, but BlackBerry must have a market in mind for its latest premium handset, the P’9983, which will cost €1650 ($2350) when it goes on limited sale in October.

DON’T MISS: ARE USERS ABANDONING BLACKBERRY?

The P’9983 started out life as a lowly Q10 handset but has been given a thorough external aesthetic remodeling, and the result is a glass-encased angular handset with a textured glass-like full QWERTY keyboard.

It also gets a stainless steel chassis and Porsche Design rear-plate logo and a sapphire glass lens cover for the rear camera.

However, strip away the elegant façade and underneath it is still more or less the same handset, albeit one with a lot more storage (64GB plus MicroSD card support for a further 128GB) on board.

DON’T MISS: THE WORLD MOST EXPENSIVE IPHONE 6

But this handset isn’t about internal hardware specifications, it’s about productivity, exclusivity and desirability. “The Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone from BlackBerry makes a statement about its owner’s impeccable taste and drive for achievement and success, as well as discernment in making the right choices with products that help them stay on top,” says Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group.

So it offers secure, encrypted messaging, an all-day battery life, and a special PIN that will tell any other BlackBerry owner that they’re messaging someone who owns a Porsche Design handset.

In terms of accessories, owners can snap up a custom Italian leather cover at extra cost, but the device will ship with an international charging cable for the productivity-focused global business traveler, a set of premium headphones, and a USB cable for faster, secure data transfers.

Fashion meets function, at least according to Adidas and Porsche Design. The two have joined forces to launch the first Porsche Design Sport womenswear collection.

Just like the menswear range, Porsche Design Sport brings its iconic luxury brand to a range of sporty sneakers, gym hoodies, gym pants, and outerwear in deep purple, gray, white, and black.

On Friday, the brand unveiled its autumn/winter 2013 collection, with its showpiece, the chic Tech Down Jacket, filled with feather and down and good to go from slopes to streets.

The jacket also features smart high-performance features such as integrated gloves, a detachable snow guard, and two hoods, one detachable and filled with PrimaLoft thermal insulation.

Also, you’ll find inside pockets for snow goggles, a mobile phone, and an MP3 player and a ski pass pocket on the left sleeve. For style, a waistband in contrasting colors offers a more feminine silhouette.

Porsche Design Sport has signed on tennis star Daniela Hantuchova to promote the line.
