The Devonshire Club London Designed By March & White

MW

 

A private members club has a peculiarly complex purpose. Add to this, 70 hotel suites above for the use of members and the logistics, functionality and performance require scientific analysis. Aesthetically, each room, each space of the club, needed to have a sense of the unique whilst being an episode in a larger, entire, piece.

To commit to creating a large, significant and very valuable piece of art is to prepare to meet some very formidable challenges. Devonshire Club was no exception to the theory. At March & White, they always work with the best craftsmen using the very finest authentic materials to ensure everything is completed to the highest quality standard. Furnitureworks are a Sussex based craft furniture makers with a reputation for producing the very highest quality upholstery. Working closely with them. 

March & White were able to interpret the organic curves and forms of mid-century style into our own, absolutely contemporary furniture.

The philosophy for Devonshire Club was to create an elegant and iconic destination for London’s city elite; a glamourous and subtly feminine space which confidently spoke of creativity, vibrancy and sophistication. Distilling inspiration from both mid-century modern design and couture, March & White created a series of distinctive spaces. These, each very individual, are, separate but still subtly connected in series, resulting in an intriguing journey from the moment of entering the club.

The mood is one of glamour and elegance with a vibrant, and very contemporary, undercurrent. Their take on the primary colour palette is visible through our selection of fabrics and finishes, creating a unique version of the Mondrian palette that boasts a timeless feel throughout the entire club.

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.

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.

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.

Equestrian Gift

Riedel Horse Decanter

Riedel

 

Riedel Crystal, the 261 year-old global leader in varietal-specific glassware (where form follows function as its wineglass shapes are created to enhance the experience and taste of a specific grape variety), also create stunning mouth-blown decanters. The sophisticated equine-inspired Riedel Horse Decanter stands at an impressive 23-5/8 inches tall with an equine profile decorating its interior – a true showstopper.Horse Decanter Kopie

Designed by 11th-generation Riedel Crystal CEO Maximilian J. Riedel, the Horse decanter was inspired not only by the Chinese Zodiacback in 2014, but also by the famous Royal Lipizzans, the rare, aristocratic breed, whose line, like the Riedel line, resided in Austria.

More than an object of beauty, the decanter is also a powerful tool, much like the energy and performance embodied by the Lipizzan breed. First bred by the Hapsburgs in the 16th century, the Lipizzan represent the prime equestrian specimen of the Baroque era and today remain symbols of pomp and circumstance throughout Europe. The decanter’s colour, defined by a single stripe of black crystal that runs the decanter’s length and outlines its interior equine profile, also takes its inspiration from the Lipizzan breed who are born black and turn white as they grow into adults.

Riedel_1

 

I have long been fascinated by horses, both as animals of strength and performance as well as of elegance, in addition to the role they have played for generations in cultures throughout the world,” comments Maximilian. “With the Riedel Horse decanter, I strove to create a functional and powerful wine tool that simultaneously reflects the innate beauty, sophistication, and authority of a horse.

The decanter’s concave profile also aids in wine’s decanting process. After pouring wine into the decanter, shaking the vessel until a thin layer of bubbles forms helps to oxygenate the wine, dramatically improving its aeration and the flavour profile of the given grape varietal. As it opens the wine by “charging” it, the Riedel Horse performs a traditionally time-consuming task at high speed, while remaining regal and refined like the Austrian Lipizzans.

Where it all began …

Emma the founder, was working for a summer at a stable yard in the Algarve, Portugal, she received so many compliments from many British clients for a pair of Spanish Riding Boots she had purchased locally. This prompted her to make a small detour on her way home to Valverde del Camino, southern Spain to pick up a few pairs of these fantastic boots.

On her return in October 2002 the enthusiastic welcome to the boots allowed SRB Valverde to be born.

Emma’s overall aim is to provide the British market with good quality Spanish merchandise at affordable prices. She has already expanded into stocking a selection of styles and plan to increase her range where possible. Customer service is high on the list of priorities whilst establishing SRB Valverde and they also offer a made to measure service.

Emma decided to change the company name to The Spanish Boot Company mainly because it is a lot easier to remember than SRB Valverde!
