ALL ACCESS SPRING PREENING Slide into spring with style. BY ROBERT HAYNES-PETERSON BRIGHTER DAYS SMART LUXURY The new Vertu Ti (from $9,600) is the company's first Android smartphone. Powered by Android 4.0, it features a superhero-strong (yet surprisingly light) polished titanium case with leather accents and a 3.7-inch sapphire crystal screen. A 1.7 GHz processor, an eight-megapixel rear camera, and a front-facing Skype-compliant camera add even more muscle, while the new Vertu Key provides instant access to concierge services. Vertu, 702-770-3491 ¡VIVA PALOMA! Throughout Mexico, the Paloma, rather than the margarita, is the tequila cocktail of choice. Often made with silver tequila and Squirt (a grapefruit soda) or fresh grapefruit juice and club soda, it's easy, delicious, and refreshing on a sunny day. Wynn master mixologist Patricia Richards has upped the ante with this sweet and citrus interpretation, ideal for poolside lounging. Olé! PALOMA 1 3⁄4 oz. Patrón Reposado tequila 1 ⁄2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice 1 ⁄3 oz. agave syrup Good pinch of kosher salt 4 oz. San Pellegrino Pompelmo grapefruit soda 1 ⁄4 grapefruit slice Savory lime dust 38 Rim half a large tumbler glass with a half-inch swath of savory lime dust. Set aside. Place the first four ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain over fresh ice into the rimmed glass. Top with Pompelmo. Garnish with a quarter grapefruit slice. TIME CHANGE Forget plastic: Jason of Beverly Hills has designed a luxury brand of customizable watches called Dunamis Timepiece with a variety of options for the case, bolt color, band style, font, and more. The new Pantheon blends masculine austerity with just the right amount of swagger. A liquid diamond dial and 25-jewel Swiss automatic movement bring the substance, while three carats of diamonds in the dial bring the bling ($12,995). Wynn & Company Watches, 702-770-3520 CLOSE SHAVE Not that long ago, guys would receive shaving sets as gifts, stick them in the closet and forget them, and return to their electric shavers. Fortunately, the well-groomed man has returned with style, and more than ever he needs a stylish razor and ethically sourced natural-hair brush set. This nickel-plated set from Penhaligon's ($170), which includes a stand, hails from the UK and is designed to fit Gillette Mach 3 blades for a close and comfortable shave. Wynn Apothecary, 702-770-3537 PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALYSSA STEFEK (WATCH); ALEX KARVOUNIS (DRINK) The wave of warm colors continues this spring and summer, so it's nice to see something icy-hot for a change. Equally sleek paired with a tab-collar shirt or polo, the the turquoise Piuma jacket ($5,700) is paired here with a camel wool and suede knit vest ($1,525); cotton trousers and denim sneakers (available on request). All by Brioni. Brioni, 702-770-3440 WYNN 038_W_FOB_ALLACCESS_Spring_13.indd 38 4/3/13 4:13 PM
