During a Nationwide Lockdown, Dolphins Return to Venice CanalEssential Homme Magazine. Lifestyle Here’s a bit of good news to come from Italy’s nationwide lockdown: The picturesque canals of Venice now have clear waters and a small influx of wildlife including swans and even dolphins like never before.

During a Nationwide Lockdown, Dolphins Return to Venice CanalEssential Homme Magazine

It’s quite amazing how nature endures when tourism is temporarily halted for two weeks following Italy’s imposed quarantine due to COVID-19 — the country currently has nearly 28,000 infected individuals and over 2,500 deaths with the entire country remains on strict lockdown. The national quarantine has left the typically bustling streets eerily quiet as the country tries to slow down the spread of coronavirus, leaving the Venetian canals practically void of boats, humans, and pollution. While others in the country are posting community singalongs from their balconies, Venetians are posting videos of the dolphins reclaiming the city’s canals usually trafficked with gondolas and boats.

Fashion If you’ve ever been curious about dabbling in amateur photography, now’s your chance.

Saint Laurent is Making Film Cameras NowEssential Homme Magazine

Saint Laurent has partnered with creative photography agency Lomography on two limited-edition Simple Use Film Cameras. Each camera features a retro print — a checkerboard style comes preloaded with black-and-white film and a star-print model is loaded with color negative film, but obviously each can be reloaded with any type of compatible film. These days, analog photos just hit differently when everyone else is digital manipulating their own pics beyond recognition.

Now’s a good time to pick up a camera and focus on composition and natural lighting. The Saint Laurent x Lomography Simple Use Film Cameras are available at the Saint Laurent Rive Droite stores in Paris and Los Angeles now. The Biocompatible & Affordable Grooming Line You NeedEssential Homme Magazine. Grooming The grooming market is loaded with products full of powerful ingredients but somehow it doesn’t always consider biocompatibility, which refers to the safety level between the skin and active formulations.

The Biocompatible & Affordable Grooming Line You NeedEssential Homme Magazine

Even more concerning, any products contain unsafe levels of PH and use formulas that are ultimately unsafe for the skin. A new brand is hoping to change that — meet Naturium, a clinically effective and biocompatible skincare line that will change the course of skincare. Naturium’s thoughtful formulas are plant-powered, non-toxic, vegan, free of parabens, fragrances, and toxins, and all the good stuff a modern product is supposed to be.

By following these fairly thorough criteria, the brand is able to create products loaded only active ingredients the skin actually needs. It’s Been a Long Week: Dickens Punch.

Coachella Will Reportedly Be Pushed to OctoberEssential Homme Magazine

It’s just the latest event to be affected by the growing epidemic after SXSW in Austin and Ultra Festival in Miami were canceled (or “postponed until next year,” according to a statement by Ultra) earlier this month. Coachella is one of the largest music festivals in the country — last year’s event brought in an estimated 99,000 attendees from around the world. According to Hypebeast, the only reason the festival is able to be postponed for later this year instead of canceled entirely is that Coachella includes a six-month radius clause for its performers. As of now, the current lineup, which includes Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Lana del Rey, Charli XCX, Calvin Harris, should be unaffected.

Cazadores Tequila Claims that Añejo is the New BlancoEssential Homme Magazine. Mexicans love their mariachi and their tequila. Cazadores Tequila brought both these party essentials to its launch event for Añejo Cristalino, the latest 100% weber blue agave tequila from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. For the true tequila connoisseurs out there, “Blanco” (or white) is generally fermented longer and thus is shelved higher than its younger, añejo, tequila counterparts… until now. After distillation, Añejo Cristalino ages in small oak barrels for over two years, allowing the liquid to have more contact with the wood and achieve a consistently smooth, complex vanilla flavor.
