VOYAGE

Take Off

January

T R END I NG

Hyp i t

This new app, co-founded by tech entrepreneur and actor Alex

Pettyfer (known for his roles in films including

Magic Mike

and

as teen spy Alex Rider in

Stormbreaker

), aims to shake up the

travel recommendation market and plug the gap between

recommendations and

experience. Essentially

working as a Snapchat-

meets-TripAdvisor crossover,

Hypit is social-driven,

inviting users to upload

photo and video

recommendations, AKA

‘hypes’, of their favourite

bars, restaurants, hotels

and so on. You can

follow friends and

influencers, and an

advanced algorithm

will filter hypes to

match your tastes.

SLOPES

Parisian eyewear brand See

Concept recently timed

their latest product launch,

The Glacier sunglasses,

to coincide with the ski

season. Skiing is a French

national pastime, so who

better to design sunnies for

the slopes? With circular

lenses, removable leatherette

protectors and wrap-around

temples, they’ll keep your

eyes sheltered from the cold,

the snow and the brightness

of the sun and pistes. There

are six colours to choose

from, from black and white

to neon orange and blue

tortoiseshell, all with grey

lenses. Pick up a pair for

unparalleled alpine style.

HOT S POT

EMB E R

e name is no coincidence: this luxury bar sits on

Pudding Lane, the very place where the Great Fire

of London began in 1666. Drawing on the location’s

heritage, Ember’s distinctive design, headed up by Ross

McNally of Scarinish Studio, features plenty of warm

hues, with copper pendant lighting and glowing candles,

wooden cabinets and stylish red-leather booths. Offering

food and drink, the menus are influenced by Asian tastes

– think steamed dumplings, Wagyu beef and braised

octopus washed down with a Cherry Blossom (Japanese

whisky, Yuzu sake liqueur, sour cherry, bee pollen and

lemon juice) cocktail.
