MUGLER PRESENTS  Spring & Summer 2021 PART 02

MUGLER PRESENTS Spring & Summer 2021 PART 02

Fashion Presented as a metafictional commentary on the fashion show construct, Part 02 of the Spring Summer 2021 collection designed by Casey Cadwallader is a no-holds-barred expression of electric MUGLER energy. Directed by TORSO in Long Island City, New York, a 6.5-minute film questions the linear continuum of a runway presentation, as hyper-charged MUGLER characters exhibit feats of near superhuman strength through stunt doubles, POV cameras and a satirical use of the infinite void.     Applying the tropes of the comic book heroine in the fashion space, Cadwallader gathers personalities from the worlds of cinema, television, music and the arts in an unprecedented casting that challenges traditional expectations of beauty: seen backwards, in fast forward, and upside-down in a collective exploration of the ‘glitch’. From Euphoria’s Hunter Schaefer and Pose star Dominique Jackson to the performance artist Kembra Pfahler, electronic musician Eartheater, cultural commentator Patia Borja and models including Alek Wek, Bella Hadid, Omahyra Mota and Irina Shayk, an armada of unique personas embody the multiplicities of the MUGLER woman in all her power and glory.   Evolving the illusory proposition of Part 01, the second chapter of the MUGLER Spring Summer 2021 collection continues to elevate the structural and proportional play of transparency inherent to the MUGLER legacy. Shape and comfort rise to the fore, as the evolution of fashion technology and materiality expand the possibilities of suspended architectures for trompe l’oeil fabrications that accentuate anatomical curves and erogenous zones with unprecedented ease. Block colours and a pulsing stratum of light wave prints contrast natural skin tones with black, white, sky blue, acid yellow, vermillion and cherry red.   Precision and flexibility are key throughout the collection, as plunging necklines define segmented, second-skin swimsuit tops bifurcated with illusion tulle. Hems seem to float in mid-air. MUGLER denim falls off the hips in slouchy spiral patterns or spliced with recycled, bonded Lycra. Bold-shouldered shirt jackets disappear into a phantom hourglass silhouette, long-sleeved cotton and satin halter shirts frame a daring midriff, and low-slung trousers are slashed down the ankle. Moments of controlled drape appear in ruched tulle pencil skirts, shirred jersey dresses and gathered goddess tops. Deconstructed masculine button-down shirts with open backs fly off the body in stark opposition to a glittering array of iridescent crystal appliqué designs that sculpt harness opera gloves, bodysuits and minidresses in two-tone iridescent topographies. Fused with the season’s laced hosiery stilettos, brightly piped MUGLER x Wolford seamed stockings echo the collection’s sinuous relationship with the human body.     Presented as a metafictional commentary on the fashion show construct, Part 02 of the Spring Summer 2021 collection designed by Casey Cadwallader is a no-holds-barred expression of electric MUGLER energy.

Galaxy Buds Pro Effective for People with Hearing Loss

Galaxy Buds Pro Effective for People with Hearing Loss

Gadgets New research conducted by Samsung Medical Center suggests Galaxy Buds Pro could assist those with hearing impairments to better engage in conversations.     Samsung Electronics today revealed the findings of a new study published in Clinical and Experimental Otorhinolaryngology, a renowned scientific journal dedicated to ear, nose, and throat (ENT) research. The study indicated that Galaxy Buds Pro’s Ambient Sound feature is effective in helping those with mild to moderate hearing loss to better hear sounds in their surroundings.   The research was carried out in partnership with Samsung Medical Center, Asia’s leading hospital with outstanding health care services and research achievements. Samsung has been working in collaboration with Samsung Medical Center for over 10 years, focusing on the impact mobile devices can have on hearing and researching new ways to optimize sound experiences for users. This latest research marks an important next step in Samsung’s ongoing commitment to collaborating on pioneering innovations that benefit people in their everyday lives.   The study assessed the efficacy of a hearing aid, a personal sound amplification product, and Galaxy Buds Pro. According to the authors, no other study has yet included true wireless earbuds when evaluating the clinical performance of hearing devices. The study is the first to demonstrate the potential benefit of true wireless earbuds for individuals with mild to moderate hearing impairments and has the potential to improve the lives of 1.5 billion people globally who are currently living with some degree of hearing loss.1   “With rapidly aging populations it’s expected that, by 2050, one in ten people will have hearing loss1. But while hearing aids are useful for managing hearing impairments, uptake remains relatively low, mainly due to the high price,” said Il Joon Moon, Associate Professor at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at Samsung Medical Center. “The initial study findings are very promising and encourage people to discover alternative devices, such as Galaxy Buds Pro, that can support them in their day to day lives.”   Galaxy Buds Pro, the hearing aid, and the personal sound amplification product underwent three key tests: electroacoustic assessment, sound amplification evaluation, and a clinical performance evaluation.     Electroacoustic Assessment   First, the electroacoustic characteristics of each device were assessed to see if they met the key performance criteria for hearing aids: output sound pressure level, frequency range, equivalent input noise, and total harmonic distortion. The results revealed that Galaxy Buds Pro met each of these four criteria, indicating that they show comparable performance to hearing aids.     Sound Amplification Evaluation   Then, a sound amplification evaluation was performed to examine if the devices adequately boosted sound. Each device was tested at seven different frequencies, and all showed an appropriate level of amplification.     Clinical Performance Evaluation   Finally, a clinical performance evaluation investigated changes in individuals’ hearing levels both with and without the devices, and their ability to recognize words and sentences. Participants had mild to moderate hearing loss, with a median age of 63 years. Statistical significance was observed at 1,000Hz, 2,000Hz and 6,000Hz, meaning Galaxy Buds Pro sufficiently amplified sound at the three frequencies of speech pitches. Furthermore, in total, over 57 percent of the participants reported that Galaxy Buds Pro were able to help them communicate in a quiet environment.   It was also discovered that, when wearing Galaxy Buds Pro, individuals were able to understand spoken words better–the results found statistically significant improvement in performance for the three devices compared to that in the unaided condition (Figure). This suggests that along with hearing aids and personal sound amplification products, Galaxy Buds Pro could potentially provide communicative benefit for individuals with hearing loss, and especially for those with mild and moderate loss.   As we develop new products and services, we are mindful of how our technology can help people to defy barriers and do more,” says Han-gil Moon, Master and Head of Advanced Audio Lab, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “These findings reflect our ongoing commitment to creating innovations that enable everyone to better enjoy everyday experiences, and we plan to extend the test to more participants in the coming months.”   Galaxy Buds Pro feature Ambient Sound, which can amplify nearby sounds by up to 20 decibels and, with four levels to choose from, users are able to adjust and customize how they experience sound according to their needs.   To read the full study, please visit: https://www.e-ceo.org/journal/view.php?number=783.

Participants had mild to moderate hearing loss, with a median age of 63 years. Statistical significance was observed at 1,000Hz, 2,000Hz and 6,000Hz, meaning Galaxy Buds Pro sufficiently amplified sound at the three frequencies of speech pitches. Furthermore, in total, over 57 percent of the participants reported that Galaxy Buds Pro were able to help them communicate in a quiet environment.   It was also discovered that, when wearing Galaxy Buds Pro, individuals were able to understand spoken words better–the results found statistically significant improvement in performance for the three devices compared to that in the unaided condition (Figure). This suggests that along with hearing aids and personal sound amplification products, Galaxy Buds Pro could potentially provide communicative benefit for individuals with hearing loss, and especially for those with mild and moderate loss.   As we develop new products and services, we are mindful of how our technology can help people to defy barriers and do more,” says Han-gil Moon, Master and Head of Advanced Audio Lab, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “These findings reflect our ongoing commitment to creating innovations that enable everyone to better enjoy everyday experiences, and we plan to extend the test to more participants in the coming months.”   Galaxy Buds Pro feature Ambient Sound, which can amplify nearby sounds by up to 20 decibels and, with four levels to choose from, users are able to adjust and customize how they experience sound according to their needs.   To read the full study, please visit: https://www.e-ceo.org/journal/view.php?number=783.

Louis Vuitton presents Zanellato/Bortotto Lanterns

Accessories “A journey East, a summer dinner with friends, a walk on the beach. We imagined this project as a collection of memories woven into a lantern. An intimate and personal object to keep with you to gently illuminate precious moments.“Zanellato/Bortotto.     Lanterns, Zanellato/Bortotto’s latest Objet Nomade, continues the design duo’s experiments with leather weaving that originally began with their Mandala Screen. Each Lantern, complete with its blown glass light dome, diffuses the geometric yet poetic pattern inspired by beehives, creating a warm, romantic touch when light.     Enclosed within the Lantern’s honeycomb-patterned cage of interwoven strips of Louis Vuitton leather, a rechargeable LED light and frosted glass bulb cast delicate shadow patterns, softly illuminating all spaces. The portable light also features details inspired by Louis Vuitton handbags, including the carrying strap and the three brass “feet” that protect the base’s leather covering from scratches. Inspired by long summer nights spent dancing under garland lights, the Lanterns, in delicate tones of pistachio and red berries, make for desirable and joyful evening allies.     Veritable nomadic companions, the Lanterns are available in two sizes and are designed for use both inside and outside. “A journey East, a summer dinner with friends, a walk on the beach. We imagined this project as a collection of memories woven into a lantern. An intimate and personal object to keep with you to gently illuminate precious moments.“Zanellato/Bortotto.     Lanterns, Zanellato/Bortotto’s latest Objet Nomade, continues the design duo’s experiments with leather weaving that originally began with their Mandala Screen.

The first one is made of a durable nylon canvas with polyurethane coating and garment dyeing. The series is inspired by the vintage uniforms of North American rescue squad and is presented in vibrant colors, such as the iconic Carrot.     The Reloaded series takes the classic designs from the Masterpiece collection and gives them a twist, new and different. The micro ottoman nylon undergoes a double dye bath process, one pigment-based and the other is an over-dye in the nylon. This makes the colors more intense and highlights the structure of the jacket.
