Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Moctezuma I: A Tribute to the Cultural Legacy of the Great Aztec Ruler

Accessories Limited Edition collection honours the remarkable artistic and architectural achievements of Aztec culture, and the influence of one of its great leaders.   With its origins in the culture of writing, Montblanc is actively engaged in the promotion of arts and culture. Part of this engagement has been to recognize the exceptional contributions of modern-day patrons of the arts around the world for the past 28 years with an annual award. Every year, to coincide with the Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award, Montblanc introduces a Limited Edition writing instrument that pays tribute to the cultural legacy and patronage of a historical patron of the arts. Created in the Montblanc Artisan Atelier from precious materials and shaped by highly skilled master craftsmen with great care and dedication, the new Montblanc Patron of Art Edition celebrates the life and influence of Moctezuma I (c. 1398-1469). In partnership with the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia in Mexico, the four limited editions tell the story of the cultural achievements of Moctezuma Ilhuicamina who was elected ruler of the great Aztec Empire in 1440 and reigned for nearly 30 years during its golden age. In addition to expanding the borders of his empire all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, he is credited for shaping the image of the Aztec state that has endured to this day, one rich in culture and mythology. The capital city Tenochtitlán, today’s Mexico City, blossomed under his rule with the construction of new buildings, sculptures and lush botanical gardens. Among his many building projects, he paid particular attention to the renewal of the Templo Mayor, which he reconstructed magnificently.     Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Moctezuma I Limited Edition 4810 In honour of Moctezuma’s credentials as a great warrior, the shape of the edition is inspired by the atlatl, an Aztec spear-throwing weapon used to propel spears or darts over long distances. The cap features a gold-coated design reminiscent of the atlatl’s thread-wrapped handles. The lacquer colours of the cap and barrel – petrol and carmine red – evoke the colours of Aztec culture and the royal cloak in particular. The pattern on Moctezuma I’s cloak, a symbol of his high rank, is represented on the cap underneath translucent lacquer. The cap is embellished with two Aztec glyphs taken from the Mendoza Codex that indicate the years in which the reign of the great Aztec king began and ended. The decoration on the cap top ring and upper part of the clip is inspired by Aztec jewellery. The spear-shaped clip is refined with an engraving of a Central American quetzal’s feather at the top and crowned by a red triangular-cut stone. The shape of the cone, refined with a hammer finish, is based on a traditional Aztec sacrificial knife with an obsidian blade. The Montblanc emblem in precious resin on the cap top is embedded in the engraving of an Aztec sun disk honours the ruler’s diverse architectural constructions and ornamentation in the cities of the Aztec empire. The handcrafted Au 750 solid gold nib is adorned with a fine engraving inspired by the Aztec glyph for the city of Tenochtitlán: a three-armed cactus with a royal diadem and two scrolls.     Montblanc Patron of Art Limited Edition 888 The colours of this edition – turquoise and carmine red – were favoured in Aztec culture and used in royal garments. The engravings on the Ag 925 sterling silver cap represent Moctezuma’s weapons, skulls and traditional Aztec’s ornaments. The lacquered turquoise barrel is engraved with a pattern reminiscent of his cloak, a symbol of the high rank of Moctezuma I, and features four lines of Au 750 solid champagne-tone gold, evoking the cardinal directions that radiated out from the Templo Mayor. The spear-shaped clip is refined with an engraving of a Central American quetzal’s feather and set with a triangular-cut green jade. The forepart of the writing instrument and the cone with its distinctive hammering optic are crafted from Ag 925 sterling silver, contrasting with the precious 750 champagne-tone gold fittings and the handcrafted solid gold nib adorned with the Aztec glyph for the city of Tenochtitlán: a three-armed cactus with a royal diadem and two scrolls. The Montblanc emblem made of mother-of-pearl on the cap top is embedded in the engraving of an Aztec sun disk honours the ruler’s diverse architectural constructions and ornamentation in the cities of the Aztec empire.     Montblanc Patron of Art Limited Edition 87 Limited to just 87 pieces in homage to 1987, the year when the Templo Major was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list, the Montblanc Patron of Art Limited Edition 87 is richly decorated with turquoise, a stone favoured in Aztec decorative craftsmanship. The turquoise mosaic in Aztec style on the cap is handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail and an artistic sensibility that makes every one of the 87 pieces in the edition slightly different. The mosaic is refined with Au 750 solid champagne-tone gold inlays set with jade cabochons and a central Aztec motif symbolising the ‘five suns’ creation myth. The gold on this edition is specially treated to create a vintage look similar to the distressed appearance often found in ancient artefacts. The barrel is crafted from precious Central American cocobolo wood, a reference to both the material used to make the traditional atlatl and to the famous El Sargento tree in Mexico City, planted during the reign of Moctezuma I. The barrel is embellished with the four stepped solid gold bands as a special reference to the Templo Mayor. The mother-of-pearl Montblanc emblem on the cap top is embedded in an engraving of an Aztec sun disc. The handcrafted Au 750 solid gold nib is adorned with a fine engraving inspired by the Aztec glyph for the heart, a symbol for sacrifice. A further glyph engraved on the forepart represents the second name of Moctezuma I: Ilhuicamina (meaning ‘he who shoots an arrow into the sky’).     Montblanc Patron of Art Limited Edition 8 The limitation number of just 8 pieces is inspired by the ‘stone of Moctezuma I’, the only remaining piece of the great Templo Mayor excavated in 1988 and featuring eight rays. Moctezuma I ascended the throne as the fifth king of Tenochtitlán in exceptional splendour, guided in great state to the high temple where he was given the turquoise-coloured, red-bordered royal cloak, the xiuhtilmatli, and a diadem of gold. This magnificence is captured in the design of this rare edition with a cap made of Au 750 solid champagne-tone gold and an elongated shape set with diamonds, garnets, green tsavorites and multi-coloured sapphires. This writing masterpiece is decorated with an artistic hand engraving of the winged Huitzilopochtli, patron god of the Aztecs. Three-dimensional engravings of the symbolic eagle and cactus represent the foundation myth of the Aztec capital, Tenochtitlán, while the two double-headed snakes that frame the artwork are Aztec symbols of renewal, fertility and luck. A reference to the highly mythologised sacrificial rituals of the Aztecs, the barrel of the writing instrument is made of dark red precious jasper and enriched with Au 750 solid champagne-tone gold inlays. The spear-shaped clip is embellished with a triangular-cut green jade. The cap top is crowned with a Montblanc Diamond embedded in an engraving inspired by an eight-rayed Aztec sun disc. To coincide with the release of the four Patron of Art Homage to Moctezuma I Limited Editions, Montblanc is introducing a fine stationary notebook in red calfskin Saffiano leather embossed with traditional Aztec motifs, as well as a Homage to Moctezuma I ink in a bright turquoise inspired by the traditional jewels and cloths of Aztec emperors. Statesman, ruler and patron of art, Moctezuma brought Aztec culture to its pinnacle. With every intricate design detail and through the beauty of fine craftsmanship, Montblanc tells the fascinating story of this great figure who made a lasting cultural impact on human civilization.   Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Moctezuma I Limited Edition is available from April 2020 at Montblanc boutiques worldwide and online.

Laauw create masks and support Dutch hospitals

Accessories We are aware of the scarcity of face masks in Dutch hospitals, so – because every contribution has been nicely included – they donated 1,000 facial masks to the Jeroen Bosch Hospital in Den Bosch. At the time of writing, these masks are produced by their supplier. In addition, Meike, their junior designer who works at their design studio (in their flagship store) in Den Bosch, has time to spare. The sales floor is very quiet, which makes Meike a bit restless. In the time that she now had to spare, she got creative. And there, of course related to these times, a design for a face mask originated. A good example that this virus blocks and hurts a lot, but that creativity cannot be stopped.     Comment from the founders: This damn virus, it affects all of us. We need to stay indoors as much as possible – just as spring is arriving -, social contacts are suspended until we-have-no-clue-when and the virus is spreading, making people in the care sector working overtime.  Right now our store is empty, appointments are being rescheduled and various productions have been stopped. We can’t and shouldn’t do anything, but we found out that we just can’t sit still. So we started looking for what we can do. For ourselves, for our environment and just in general in this whole situation, to make something positive out of it.    For more visit their website: Laauw.com We are aware of the scarcity of face masks in Dutch hospitals, so – because every contribution has been nicely included – they donated 1,000 facial masks to the Jeroen Bosch Hospital in Den Bosch.

In conversation with Tiffany Hsu

Style We had a delight to speak with Tiffany about the coming Spring & Summer trends and her highlights.   What are your top 5 new trends for Spring & Summer 2020?   90´s Clean Lines: A ‘90s mood for clean, monochromatic elegance was a favourite in Milan, particularly from the likes of Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta. Minimalism and streamlined tailoring is still a mainstay trend continuing from last season— this time, in an even more pared-back way. We loved the elegant box blazers from newcomer Low Classic, as well as The Row’s impeccable construction. The simple leather accessories we saw at Loewe—modern staples with simple lines—made the biggest statement.   Neon: A rainbow of neons was seen on the runway, with over-the-top fuchsia, fluorescent orange, bright yellow and lime green making a statement within the collections. Dries Van Noten—with a surprise appearance from fashion legend Christian Lacroix —was the occasion to see a sophisticated spin on neon colours that was more inclined towards eveningwear and dresses. Standout styles for us included Valentino’s pairing of tone-on-tone bags with belts, diamonds-meet-neon jewellery from Melissa Kaye and EÉRA, and Kwaidan Editions’ highlighter-green power suit.   Jungle: Strutting down the runway in the same plunging silk-chiffon jungle dress she infamously wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, Jennifer Lopez’s appearance at Versace was on everyone’s feeds and lips this September. The dress inspired the creation of Google Images, as well as one of the strongest prints for next season. From Fendi’s and Dolce & Gabbana’s luxuriant green leaves to Marni’s abstract blooms, tropical prints have been flowering during Spring/Summer ’20, with palm trees and vivid colors invading dresses, jackets and footwear.   Leather: Following the wave of leather-on-leather men’s tailoring, new leather looks appeared in the womenswear collections. Even if all-black leather is still a favourite, new and different shapes have emerged, such as power shoulders at Maison Margiela and elegantly oversized dresses at Givenchy. Designers also incorporated new colors, such as Gucci’s slit pencil skirt in butter yellow and Bottega Veneta’s anorak dress in tan.          Bermuda Shorts: Bermuda shorts have been introduced as the new suiting silhouette of the season, as seen from Chloé, Max Mara and Valentino. Our clients not only purchase suits as all-in-one looks, but also as separates—making this trend a key transeasonal look that offers even more options to layer and mix. Another highlight for next season is the sophisticated leather short. Exhibit A: a nappa leather, thigh-length version, brought to you by Daniel Lee’s Bottega Veneta.     How do fashion weeks in different cities and countries differentiate for you?    Generally all cities have a unique aesthetic and approach to their respectable fashion weeks. London for example is quite compact and curated – only talents that have been selected by the British Fashion Council are able to present their latest collection. Therefore you are able to see the best that the city has to offer within a short period of time. Paris on the other hand is well known for its big productions of the major fashion houses: complex backdrops and breath-taking locations are a must. For me personally Paris is always quite busy and hectic since I am not just attending shows but am also  simultaneously buying for Mytheresa. Milan, comparable to Paris, is a fashion mecca and the home of luxury heritage brands. Their creations are about incredible craftsmanship, highest qualities and tailoring. Finally New York is very laid back and the fashion crowd seems to be more experimental – something that I find inspiring.      Name some of your new fashion week highlights.   Peter Do: I am super obsessed with this up and coming US based brand. Peter’s designs are minimal and androgynous, like a 90ies revival of Helmut Lang mixed with #oldceline. What’s not to like about this super cool brand.   Low Classic: A Korean based contemporary brand which offers all the fashion staples you need in your wardrobe without burning a hole in your pocket. High waisted blazers combined with easy culottes – you name it, they have it.   Nodaleto: Julia Toledano is the “new kid on the block” in the shoe world. She offers cool chunky heels with a bit grungy touch, but not too alternative. Her styles are perfect for the fashion savvy cool girls who want something different.     What were a few of your favourite shows for SS2020?   Bottega Veneta Valentino Loewe Jacquemus Gabriela Hearst   All the amazing pieces from the looks Tiffany is wearing on the images you can now purchase at MyTheresa.com     We had a delight to speak with Tiffany about the coming Spring & Summer trends and her highlights.   What are your top 5 new trends for Spring & Summer 2020?   90´s Clean Lines: A ‘90s mood for clean, monochromatic elegance was a favourite in Milan, particularly from the likes of Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta.

SNEAKERSNSTUFF x Vault by Vans “VENICE BEACH PACK”

SNEAKERSNSTUFF x Vault by Vans “VENICE BEACH PACK”

Fashion To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Sneakersnstuff Los Angeles in Venice Beach, we have collaborated with Vault by Vans on two Southern Californian staples, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX, as an homage to Venice Beach and the culture and history that encompasses it.   This history of Venice Beach is a notorious one, a place where creatives and artists flourished in the 1960s and ’70s, immortalized in the history books of skateboarding forever throughout the ‘80s and coincided with a punk explosion that enveloped the beach and boardwalk into the ’90s. The design of the SNS x Vault by Vans “Venice Beach Pack” is a nod to that time - the late 80’s and 90’s and what skaters, surfers, and punks were wearing.   Both the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX feature a canvas upper with the iconic checkerboard print in bright neon colorways and unique SNSgraphics along the sidewall as Vans has done so iconically over the years. In addition to the OG Vault by Vans Off the Wall logo hit on the heel, design details revere to orginal Vans models such as a slim fitted shape utilizing the original period correct upper patterns. Further, we see the iconic outsole undercut with hand-tooled details and tightly wrapped rubberized textile foxing only seen on vintage Vans, long-lasting thick outsole, original Vans sticky rubber, and sidewall sealing wipe. The OG build is as always, original design, original quality, and crafted the original way. To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Sneakersnstuff Los Angeles in Venice Beach, we have collaborated with Vault by Vans on two Southern Californian staples, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX, as an homage to Venice Beach and the culture and history that encompasses it.   This history of Venice Beach is a notorious one, a place where creatives and artists flourished in the 1960s and ’70s, immortalized in the history books of skateboarding forever throughout the ‘80s and coincided with a punk explosion that enveloped the beach and boardwalk into the ’90s. The design of the SNS x Vault by Vans “Venice Beach Pack” is a nod to that time - the late 80’s and 90’s and what skaters, surfers, and punks were wearing.   Both the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Era LX feature a canvas upper with the iconic checkerboard print in bright neon colorways and unique SNSgraphics along the sidewall as Vans has done so iconically over the years. In addition to the OG Vault by Vans Off the Wall logo hit on the heel, design details revere to orginal Vans models such as a slim fitted shape utilizing the original period correct upper patterns.

Other innovations, such as a plexiglass handle, ayers skin nish or enlarged shoulder straps for crossbody wear, will allow it to embrace an endless variety of styles at di erent times of day.
