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.

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.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup 2017

PoloGoldCup

 

Jaeger-LeCoultre enjoys a rich history with polo, ever since the creation of the Reverso watch in 1931. The mythical story of the Reverso watch began in 1931 when a British army officer who had broken the glass of his watch during a polo match in India, raised the challenge to create a model sufficiently robust to survive a polo match unscathed. This challenge, successfully accomplished by the Manufacture at the time, led to the creation of the Reverso watch with a swivelling case to protect the dial. Through the Manufacture’s passion for the sport of Polo, a watchmaking icon was born.

This year, the top ten teams are entering the 2017 Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup for the British Open Polo Championship, the most coveted prize in high goal professional polo outside of Argentina. The Draw to decide matchplay in the opening league phase took place in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s flagship boutique at 13 Old Bond Street, London.

In addition to its technical aspects and the beauty of its movement, the Reverso watch embodies first and foremount a style – namely, the Art Deco. This trend with its decidedly modern connotations, was expressed by a revolutionary aesthetic language capable of uniting art and the avant-garde. More than merely a style, this movement embodies a philosophy that aspired to create a utopian world in which reason merged with splendour, modernity with tradition, and form was born of function.

 

Atelier Reverso (2) Kopie

 

The Reverso watch, originally launched in 1931, has been reinvented for eighty-six years while staying true to its original design principles. It is much more than a watch. It measures time, and it preserves its history. The Reverso is unique in the world: in one watch, there are two faces through a patented swiveling case. Thus, in a single gesture, the model reveals another face. Generations have come and gone, styles have evolved, yet the Reverso remains true to itself, to its aesthetic codes, to its inimitable swivel. The back of the Reverso is an invitation to personalize. In the Manufacture’s dedicated workshop, highly skilled artisans can reproduce a favorite painting, a miniature portrait, initials, a poem… Some stories deserve to be captured forever.

Margot Robbie joins the Richard Mille Family

Richard Mille is delighted to welcome Australian actress Margot Robbie to the circle of women who are partners of the brand. She is an inspiration to the current generation and the brand looks forward to creating a fascinating range of watches.

 

Margot_richardMille

 

Born in Australia, Robbie grew up on the Gold Coast and eventually moved to Melbourne where she began acting professionally at the age of 17. She appeared on Neighbors, Australia’s longest-running television serial, from 2008-2010. In 2011, Robbie moved to the United States to pursue her career and was quickly cast in the critically-acclaimed series, Pan Am.

Robbie is perhaps best known for her breakout role in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 hit, The Wolf of Wall Street, in which she stars as the female lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Her star-making performance in the film garnered praise from critics and audiences alike.

The Wolf of Wall Street paved the way for interesting and unique opportunities for Robbie including starring opposite Will Smith in Focus, a lead role in sci-fi thriller Z for Zachariah, starring as “Jane” in David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan, as well as her coveted role as the iconic “Harley Quinn” in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Robbie can be seen next in Simon Curtis’ Goodbye Christopher Robin alongside Domhnall Gleeson.
She recently wrapped production on Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, which she stars in as Tonya Harding, and served as a producer under her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Robbie will soon begin production on Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots in which she will star as “Queen Elizabeth” opposite Saoirse Ronan.

Not content to limit her involvement in film and television to acting, Margot launched her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Robbie currently has several films in development under the production banner including Bad Monkeys, Beautiful Things and Marian.

 

Margot_Robbie

 

This partnership between Margot Robbie and Richard Mille complements the very contemporary spirit of the collection in which Margot will bring her creative energy and her own interpretation of femininity as she participates in the design of several models.    
”I am really excited to join the Richard Mille family, I have always admired the brand’s artistry and innovation. The watch we are working on embodies Richard Mille’s vision of horology; it’s beautiful, unique and modern. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Richard Mille and Margot will create together a collection of which the proceeds will be donated to Youngcare. This foundation is committed to helping young Aussies with high-care needs live life with choice, independence and dignity.

Collaborating with an array of artists and masters in their disciplines allows Richard Mille to enrich its vision of what a masterpiece of watchmaking for the 21st century should look like, without losing sight of tradition and history.

Sama Eyewear

Sama Eyewear  Sunglasses Are The World’s Finest And Most Exclusive Luxury Sunglasses For Men And Women.

We had the pleasure to interview the founder and eyewear designer Sheila Vance.

Vance shot by Zoobs

What drew you to a Eyewear designer and specifically to starting your own brand?

There were several factors at work within when I decided to embark on a career in eyewear.  For as long as I can remember and since I was a child wearing glasses —  I felt that wearing eyewear ​was a “sentence” and a burden for people. I was different and stood out but not for a positive reason and children can be cruel so the downside of associations with eyewear always stuck with me. 

It was corrective and necessary but not joyful to find or buy because there was not a sense of fashion, fun and whimsy or a great way to express oneself like when buying a handbag or earring or necklace.

SamaShop

Very early on in my career ​I had stores and was importing and selling accessories including sunglasses.
​I thought that this was perhaps the most important accessory anyone would put on every day, framing their face and highlighting their features, giving a first impression to the world but there was nothing truly beautiful or inspiring about it. I found quickly that most of it was a bit boring or basic, uninspired or low quality. I found myself often thinking of what could be better or different to make a specific frame into a fantastic accessory for the face. I thought that eyewear could and should enhance your beauty not detract from it. I wanted people to feel happy, fashionable, beautiful and joyful buying and wearing their eyewear. I knew that an eyewear wardrobe was possible of great shapes styles, materials ​and looks from a beach weekend to work week and boardroom or ball room cocktail or couture. Just like clothing and other accessories​. So my research began from there to understand the engineering and manufacturing. 
Product
Then came the loss of my son which was of course life altering. I was unable to think about continuing on life in the same way I had lived before. I needed a creative outlet and wanted to find a business that could be an ongoing source of income to fund the foundation I was starting in his name. It was almost a calling as a way to fill my creative needs, honor my commitment to the Sam Vance Foundation to support drug addicted youth in their path to sobriety as well as prevention and to introduce a concept of beauty to change the perception of eyewear in the world. I needed to find and connect to something beautiful and find something meaningful to believe in again. 

The idea of a better vision – a clear vision and a better future for those wearing glasses and those suffering with addiction​ all came together for me through eyewear and Sama was born.​

sama
  
From where do you get your design inspiration?
​For me, ​inspiration can come from anywhere. I travel extensively and enjoy art, fashion and textiles, architecture and design, nature hikes, and beaches around the world. I have found that jewelry, cars, and buildings have lines, curves, shapes, and details that I can translate into eyewear in meaningful ways. It is also easy to find inspiration daily in the amazing cultures and people I have met along the way in urban cities and remote locals globally.​
Precious_gry Kopie
From our our Sahara Collection which featured stained glass elements with ancient symbolism and rich colors of the desert to deCode: Los Angeles and our my newest technically advanced full metal Mechanix collection being introduced later this year, I continue to find inspiration in objects d’art, people and places I love and admire who push me to move the needle in terms of design and technology to new heights. 
HeartOfGold_PinkRose2-18krose Kopie
L​ocally in Los Angeles were Sama was born and raised so to speak,​ we created an entire collection that was inspired by the influencersdisruptorstastemakers and activists who make up the incredible city combining​ the golden luxe of Hollywood Glamour and star power with intricate specialized techniques for an overt the top look with hidden details representing how beyond the glitterati is the undercurrent of the culture to embrace issues and causes that difference in the world. 
HeartOfGold_GoldenWine1 KopieWhat are some of the materials you use in your collection?
We are eclectic in our materials and often we have introduced materials that were not traditionally used in the eyewear and optical business.  Titanium, Carbon Fiber, wood buffalo horn, acetate and precious metals  ( gold and platinum) are the main core of our materials but we have also included leather, feathers, pearls and processes or techniques such as laser cutting and lamination, enamel cloisonne, beads and Swarovski crystals in our pieces.
myscha oreo Loft glasses-18
How would you describe the style of your Eyewear brand?

Just as our materials are eclectic our style is eclectic too. For Sama ​”style” is a broad based word where we appeal to a global, luxury shopper who is a individual ​who is an influencer not an adapter. We are a brand for those who are noticed of we have a sharp, strong varied range of styles and collections from sporty to glamorous,  simple to ornate, simple and delicate and wild and bold. ​While I consider the Sama products and brands in a category of our own in the premium luxury market, each of our collections can be defined and described as​ ​individual, unique, distinctive and of the highest quality.

Wildside-Obsidian

If you had to choose a favourite piece you have designed, what would it be?

This is such a hard question to answer — because I love so many of our frames for so many reasons and because each pair has a story and a journey that is so personal to me. 

​Each and every design starts a new creative process with new directions, twists and turns. I have often said that we have a great love affair with our collection.
myscha oreo Loft glasses-1
And for me, with this being my life work – Sama Eyewear is ​basically a romance​ -​ epic almost – with so much time, attention, passion and love poured into each pair. From my first inspiration to paper sketches to computer work, the natural elements and materials we select and the details we pour into each pair back and forth over several continents touching hundreds of hands.
samaeyewear
For me, each story has the most beautiful ending.  It is hard to choose because once the story ends – I start the next with the same intensity, love and​ commitment and I am in a new romance. There are certainly specific pieces or collections we introduced to the market that were influential or award-winning. Some were disruptive or elevated the market and countless hundreds were copied. Basically, I want someone to find their love story with their perfect frames to create their wardrobe to compliment their life. Eyewear is the most important accessory we wear every day to express our individuality and style, highlight our features, frame the face and give us a picture perfect vision in life. Sama is part of that vision. 
Stardust-Tidal
What is your life philosophy?

The name SAMA comes from the old Sanskrit meaning from no beginning no end.  A circle, a cycle, a continuation which applies to everything in life and something I believe. We can not look back, not change the past so every experience leads to the next and contributes to our path and pushing us onward and forward. I believe that we are always continuing on the journey and we need to take with us what is good no looking back no regrets​. I believe that everything happens for a reason.  A door may seem to close but another is absolutely opening even if you don’t see it at first. 

shades

We will only be our best if we surround ourselves with the best, brightest those who share the missions and visions we set forth in our “cycle” of business, friendships and life. We have only one life to live and since it is in essence a cycle with no beginning and no end, we need to be sure we include only the good in the cycle so it will continue with positivity and resulting good. I have come through considerable adversities in life and have found a path to a happy and successful life and business – but it did not come easy and it did not happen to me, I had to create the intentions and make it happen for myself with great people at my side​.
