1. The Perfect Christmas Gift from Lanson – White Label Champagne Music Box

LANSON WHITE LABEL CHAMPAGNE MUSIC BOX

It’s no surprise that receiving a bottle of Champagne Lanson is music to anyone’s ears.
When it comes to good taste this Lanson White Label is fresh, zesty and crisp with a soft, off-dry character and mouth-watering aroma – especially when perfectly served between 7 and 9 degrees.
And for those ears? Well, with a nifty tin that doubles as a natural smart phone speaker, you’ve got yourself a genuine corker of a music box.

These limited edition collections are big – bold and showcase shine and luxe from every angle and showcase big style — with fun festive whimsy — and a dash of street — to literally frame the face from the Hawaii Heat to the slopes in Gstaad or the beaches of St. Tropez or shores of Santa Monica.

3. Richard Mille – Limited Edition

RM

RM 055 YAS MARINA CIRCUIT

To epitomize the successful and long-lasting partnership with Yas Marina Circuit, Richard Mille has created the RM 055 Yas Marina Circuit watch, a limited edition of 50 pieces exclusively for the UAE.

Richard Mille pays tribute to the circuit by placing the YMC logo on the sapphire case-back. The mechanical movement of the RM 055 YMC in grade 5 titanium displays extreme skeletonization, with a PVD and Titalyt® treated baseplate and bridges. This combination provides the whole structure with optimum rigidity and excellent surface flatness and finish, essential aspects for the perfect functioning of the gear train. The caliber RMUL2 is thus capable of withstanding accelerations of over 500-G’s.

 

RMW

 

The RM 055 YMC is a highly technical creation that is innovative, sporting and hand-finished in the finest watchmaking traditions. The piece is exclusively available at Richard Mille Boutiques in the Dubai Mall and Galleria Mall in Abu Dhabi.

Exclusive Interview with shoe designer Sieta Soebedar who talks to us about her Autumn/Winter 2017/18 Collection

 

How did you get into the whole shoe world and become a shoe designer?

With my passion for design and fashion sense, at a certain point in my life, I decided to follow my dream in the fashion industry. I was inspired by Italian tradition of high craft and luxury, so through research I ended up in Parabiago.. I began my journey by visiting shoe factories, tanneries, heel suppliers and fairs.  I had no credentials in shoe design. I learned the shoemaking craft from scratch working with various artisans and suppliers.

DYER-SMITH FREY

BECKERIA_DSF_Patrick_Armbruster_7S9A9513 Kopie

 

BECKERIA

Designed by DYER-SMITH FREY

Europaallee, Zürich

 

BECKERIA – the name symbolizes the concept: BECK – Swiss German for bakers – stands for good homemade bread, cakes and pastries. The Italian word GallERIA stands for generous versatility under one roof.

 

BECKERIA_DSF_Patrick_Armbruster_7S9A9521 Kopie

 

To meet the diversified culinary offer of BECKERIA, DYER-SMITHFREY designed on 266 sqm various interior areas. Visually clearly separated areas, which fit to the respective food, occasion, daytime and last but not least to the mood of the guest.

When entering, the customer is welcomed by a generous and bright designed sales counter made of matt grey fair-faced concrete with a working and presentation surface made of natural stone – the centrepiece of BECKERIA.

 

BECKERIA_DSF_Patrick_Armbruster_7S9A9457 Kopie

 

To the left of the sales counter the light cereal area offers a healthy breakfast, furnished with high tables and chairs made of natural oak. On the right, dark woods, upholstered seating benches and chairs highlight the coffeehouse and lounge area with it’s own Barista Bar.

 

BECKERIA_DSF_Patrick_Armbruster_7S9A9477 Kopie

 

The black marble Grill Bar, with an attached bar counter made of anthracite-coloured concrete, forms the gastronomic bridge from lunch to dinner. The opposite high table with leather-covered bar stools is perfect for a quick lunch. A long dining table of light oak for 8 persons guarantees a convivial dinner in a warm and cosy atmosphere.

An end-to-end solid wood herringbone parquet floor made of oiled light oak creatively pulls the Interior-Areas together.

 

BECKERIA_DSF_Patrick_Armbruster_7S9A9509 Kopie

 

The continuous black-painted, industrial-looking ceiling contrasts with the fine materials and thus creates an interesting tension. Expanded metal room dividers and suspensions act as structuring elements above the working areas and create transparent boundaries for the individual interior areas. All the essential furniture, the tables, shelve elements, the room dividers and the lounge sofa are designs by DYER-SMITH FREY.

 

BECKERIA_DSF_Patrick_Armbruster_7S9A9446 Kopie

 

DYER-SMITH FREY accomplished a harmonious conclusive and accessible interior to match the complex concept of the BECKERIA.

LAURA BIAGIOTTI Spring/Summer 2018

Laura

 

The dress tells a story, it witnesses and evokes: feelings, dreams, memories, roots, future. Continuity and metamorphosis.
A project rather than an object. A suggestion in order to escape from an ephemeral compulsivity and from a certain kind of fashion, which burns and consumes everything over the course of a season.
The dress is a “value” in every sense. The evolution of our personal wardrobe becomes a dressing/investing duality, which combines ethics and aesthetics. 

 

info@imaxtree.com

 

Forever Roma. All roads lead to Rome. The 2018 Spring/Summer Biagiotti collection takes us back to the GRAND TOUR; the Journey through Italy (superbly narrated by Goethe and other great authors) that the luckiest of youth used to embark on in order to broaden their cultural baggage. A journey, which was also for girls just as long as they were accompanied by their mother or by a providential unmarried aunt. All this is achieved through prints by Carlo Labruzzi, the great eighteenth century roman landscape painter (this year celebrates the two-hundredth anniversary since his death) whose collection is preserved in the Vatican.

 

info@imaxtree.com

 

On linen tunics, iconic “Bambola” dresses with frilled chiffons, structured suits with jackets and broad trousers, voluminous trench-coats and even on must-have t-shirts, we witness the appearance of prints and designs of the most suggestive venues of the Eternal City. Especially the via Appia: a sort of period “reportage”, which traces back to that real and metaphorical journey that is life; one, which sometimes needs to be exorcised, as suggested by the fantastic masks of the facades of roman churches and buildings.

 

info@imaxtree.com

 

Roma’s Aura. Eventually, the long travelling finds its rest in the presence of the unique light of roman sunsets, captured by the new “rosa roma” color in the mini sequin or lace dress, which steers towards a shade of red brick, mixed with the thousand shades of a sky that has seduced millions of lovers. All this is a romantic yet contemporary love story interpreted by Laura Biagiotti’s iconic fragrance ROMA, an international best seller launched in 1988.

 

info@imaxtree.com

 

Metallic flashes define the accessories: necklaces and bracelets have the same precious stones; onyx, quartzes, left unrefined and natural and which also appear on bags and sandals making them unique, collection objects. The lights of crystals from Swarovski brighten up the tulle, worn in layers charged with reflections. Biagiotti’s white tells the story of hyper-feminine, romantic and voluminous dresses.

 

info@imaxtree.com

 

Postcards. A dress to read. While the prints assemble and break down on silk, taffetas and chiffon like an ancient/current graphic novel, the traveler shows up with a postcard. Images, which tell the story of the evolution of eras and places: it may be the famous aviator, Amelia Mary Earhart known as Lady Lindy, woman of sport, courage, freedom and adventure, a legend, which disappeared in the Pacific in 1937. But also of the many anonymous, tormented goodbyes: ciao mamma…

VIVETTA Spring/Summer 2018

01 Kopie

 

Between history and legend, Andrey Remnev has inspired the 2018 Vivetta Spring-Summer collection.

Vivetta Ponti transfers his art onto the catwalk: his ancient, melancholic strokes, yet graphical and modern, his colours and the delicate and dream-like women, the main characters of his paintings.

 

02 Kopie

 

These noble, hypnotic ladies, suspended in a surreal atmosphere, emphasise his passion for detail and, more specifically, for embroidery. Vivetta’s dresses, just like canvases, portray a marvellous, enchanted universe, with a wealth of magical elements. A desecrating tribute to both the world of contemporary art and the Russian artist.

 

07 Kopie

 

A collage of refined hand-made decorations. Sophisticated sequin macramé and evanescent profiles. Dazzling Swarovski and pearl appliques. Precious brocades as well as bright, multi-coloured Haute Couture duchesses.

Remnev’s favourite motifs are directly transferred onto the dresses. Irises bloom on the fabrics, crossed by the featherweight flights of dragonflies, butterflies and swallows. In addition to these, there are also elements taken from the underwater and woodland world. In the eternal surreal interplay of transformism, nature overcomes the real dimension: fantastic animals such as fish and winged creatures blossom in splendid flowers.

 

09 Kopie

 

Skirts that are as light as clouds and volumes emphasised by puffy crinolines. Cascades of raw edged tulle. Transparencies and micromesh lace. The crystal-studded organza is gradually blurred with delicate, lightweight feathers. The lightness of these fabrics is contrasted with those of a sturdier nature. The bustier dress is rather striking with its exaggerated volumes in denim which is treated, woven and dyed by hand.

 

12 Kopie

 

The common thread linking these two inspirational worlds, which are only apparently poles apart, is actually jeans, that co-exist in this collection. Revisited, faded and embroidered denim with bands of coloured feathers is used also for the footwear: for a true total look. There is a clear reference to a typically-90s POP underground style in terms of fit, volumes and prints. Oversized garments and hyper-feminine outfits. Organza, fil coupé brocade and jacquard cotton that recall romantic tapestries.

 

15 Kopie

 

The little tassels that enrich them have also been taken from the world of furnishing and design.
Maxi T-shirts are worn over 1960-style mini-dresses adorned with minute, sparkling sequins. Flaming, acid-coloured embroideries with sporty elements also for dresses in silk satin. The emerald green dress, with a deep side split, matching feather train and boa is a real key piece.

 

21 Kopie

 

The cut and paste effect is ensured by the styling: a top recalling a baseball T-shirt, with contrasting lace on its sleeves and a red carpet-worthy skirt. Also the black dress, with its decorated white satin bodice, that in terms of cut and silhouette perfectly complies with the design codes of this mood, has been created by wearing a short T-shirt over a tulle skirt. The elements of decor which Remnev was so fond of, can be seen once again in the prints, on shirts and short dresses, that have been re-elaborated according to a decidedly more contemporary taste.

 

22 Kopie

 

The range of colours is amazing. The light, dusty hues of the purest dawns from soft blue to baby pink, clash with the unique fluo colours and plenty of gold, a clear reference to the precious pigments blended by hand and used by the artist himself, as in the past.
Accessories: high cuissard boots and bow mules, either glittered or in bright pastel colours. Delicate “profiled” ballerina shoes in clashing hues.
