Zenology presents their new capsule collection

Lifestyle “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions. Immersing myself in creating the bold and new certainly excites me, but it is the comfort of iconic classics that inspired me to develop new fragrance-driven products from our treasured favorite fragrance.     The Camellia Sinensis fragrance is our iconic scent that sparked the hotel industry and many others to delve into the power of scent. So for me, it was the logical and the perfect way to start this journey. The calming and soothing notes of this fragrance soon became instantly recognizable and synonymous with ZENOLOGY. The woodiness of Black Tea, the herbaceous notes of Clary Sage, and the depth coming from the mysterious Guaiac Wood create a scent that fits all seasons and adapts to every setting.    However, during the colder months when the days are darker it adds the much-needed warmth and comfort. That's why I would like to present to you our black limited edition in our iconic Camellia Sinensis fragrance – as a diffuser, scented candle and hand & body cosmetics in 300 ml size including various gift sets in gift boxes designed to re-use.” - Jeroen Oude Sogtoen, Founder and Creative Director       ZENOLOGY presents a new limited black edition packaging in its treasured favorite Camellia Sinensis fragrance. Black tea, made from leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, will fill any space with its comforting and purifying woody steam.   smells like: Herbal tea   elements: Black Tea, Clary Sage, Guaiac Wood perfumer: Fredrik Dalman, In-House Perfumer ZENOLOGY       The collection features cosmetics duo’s in a new 300 ml (10.14 fl.oz.) format and comes in a matt-black square gift box.  ZENOLOGY is also launching new fragrance diffusers (sticks) and a scented candle as a part of the limited black edition that comes in a matt-black cylindrial gift box. “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions.

In conversation with Taylor Zakhar Perez

Men Taylor Zakhar Perez was introduced to fans in Netflix's sequel ”The Kissing Booth 2” this summer as Marco, the most notable role of his career to date. Thanks to his singing and dancing skills, his social media exploded after the movie first came out. But acting is not all there is about him.       Taylor, you studied music theater before your acting career. How did your switch from theater to TV and film happen?   The natural progression of an actor/artist is working your way through different performance formats and learning about all the pieces of the puzzle...from stage to screen and even prop styling to producing.  To me, Los Angeles was the end goal and I was lucky enough to have a casting director refer me to a few acting studios to make the transition.      You have 7 siblings. What would you say is the most valuable thing you've learned growing up in such a big family?    First let me say that if you didn't grow up with brothers and sisters, you missed out. Even though they aggravate, antagonize and sometimes leave scars on your body, I wouldn't be who I am today without them. You learn patience, compassion and ultimately how to function in the world with all the personalities out there. I was lucky, my family prepared me for a lot of the curveballs in life and I developed a really good sense of humor.      Your background is of strong importance to you, it also impacted your major while studying. What made you so eager to study Spanish, Culture and Community?   College was a weird space, I had two majors, one minorand no friends. I took 25 units a quarter and my teachers thought I was a pain in the ass, but isn't everyone at that age? The outreach aspect intrigued me most on this particular major, I wanted to be of service in the underserved communities. I worked with an NGO that helped DREAMERS prep and apply to universities because it was sort of their only hope for success in higher education.      What is your goal you want to achieve in your acting career?   Just one? I have so many. My primary goal is to maintain my sense of selfand remember where I come from. That being said, I want to do everything from jumping out of helicopter action roles to pee your pants high-stakes comedies, but also diving into dark indie films that shed light on the unthinkable things that happen in this world. My goal is to be limitless; produce my own projects, bring my screenplays and ideas to life, and say yes to the right collaborations. So often we are forced to assimilate to what ”they” want us to be, but that's not me and it never will be.       When you auditioned for ”The Kissing Booth 2”, you didn't know what were you auditioning for. How did the role of Marco Pena change your life and what is the best thing about being part of this film?   Marco Peña sort of broke the internet when we premiered, it was madness. My Instagramgained millions of followers overnight and my face was everywhere. I am incredibly grateful for my costars that went through this a couple years back and they sort of helped me adapt to it. The best part of the whole experience has been the support from our director Vince Marcello, his attention to detail and specificity leveled me up as an artist and made set a safe place for us to be vulnerable. Also Joey, she just raised the bar and made me want to be better everyday.     How do you feel about your impending stardom status? Is it weird having so many fans all of a sudden following you on social media and trying to get in contact with you?   If fans text me, I'll hit them back. Sometimes I spend an hour just chatting with fans,getting to know them and get their take on life, love, whatever. Technology is cool, man. As for the “impending stardom” ... well, I think actualstardom is contingent on the next projects I choose. I can choose to be a one-trick pony or pivot into something more dramatic or action heavy. The choice is obvious and I'm all in.     You are very much into charitable work. What makes charity so important for you and do you support any specific charity organization or cause? Tell us more about about this part of your life.   My mom and dad come from humble beginnings and they've always made a point to tell us how privileged we were growing up. No joke, any time we were ungrateful,it turned into an hour lecture which ultimately turned into some kind of house/yard work.  I don't have one organization that I exclusively work with, but I have some family members with disabilities and I try to gear my outreach toward non-profits that support research or directly aid in a child's development (e.g. education, familial assistance, etc.);anything that can take the stress off of the working parents.      We know you love to travel, but this is heavily restricted at the moment. How did you spend your time during quarantine, besides riding your motorcycle?   Giving up traveling for a moment was tough, but it's for the greater good and I am all for that. I was able to finish a film I wrote, start working on another, collaborate with friends, get back on the piano and was able to take a step back and assess what my next move as an actor is. This “overnight” meteoric rise during a lockdown was like nothing I ever expected, but it allowed me to weigh the importance of everything in my life and have major clarity. Oh, and the dog, can't forget spending time with the dog.      You said you would love to produce your own projects, bring your ideas to life. You also just finished a film you wrote. How did your interest in production and screenplays spark? Tell us more about this finished project that you wrote.   I've been behind the scenes for many years working art department, bringing projects into production, casting and coordinating, etc. So for me, as I was pursuing a career in front of the camera,it only made sense to keep building my behind the camera knowledge as well. It also helped that I was at UCLA, which has a great TV & Film department, so I was able to take what I learned there and apply it to today. The screenplay I just finished follows a young man that has strayed so far away from his true north that it takes destruction, reconciliation and death to reset him and his place in the world.     It was announced we'll be seeing more of you and your friends next year in ”The Kissing Booth 3”. Obviously, you're team Marco. What can you tease for us about the third installment of the movie?   Are you trying to get me killed? This is some top-secret vault intel you are asking for. What I CAN tell you is that the third film will make you feel some type of way, it's an emotional satisfying  culmination of a coming of age story. As with many film franchises (with heart),the final one is always about what these characters have learned since the beginning of their journey and I think everyone will be empowered after watching it.    For the full story and editorial, get your copy at: https://www.boutiquemags.com   TEAM CREDITS: Talent: Taylor Zakhar Perez @taylorzakharperez  Photography: Erinn Springer @springerinn Casting / EIC: Timotej Letonja @timiletonja Styling: Jordan Boothe @jordanboothestudio @lmcworldwide  Production: Maria Zakhar  Grooming: Brandy Moreno Creative direction: Erinn Springer & Maria Zakhar Interview by: Jana Letonja @janaletonja Special thanks to Amita Malani and Andrea Braff at @viewpoint.pr  Taylor Zakhar Perez was introduced to fans in Netflix's sequel ”The Kissing Booth 2” this summer as Marco, the most notable role of his career to date.

FENDI - Featuring Sarah Coleman

FENDI - Featuring Sarah Coleman

Accessories FENDI has commissioned the New York based artist Sarah Coleman to reinterpret the Miami Design District FENDI Boutique and create a series of one of a kind design pieces.     For almost a century FENDI has been committed to redefining luxury through the development of new materials and techniques.  From its foundation, and through Silvia Venturini Fendi’s vision today, the Roman Luxury House has been pushing traditional methodologies and handcraft in new directions.  Inspired by FENDI’s tradition of breaking down barriers of exclusivity and luxury, the artist felt empowered to invent and reimagine.  The result feels retro and classic but also entirely new, inspired by the spirit of the 1970s.     The concept created for Design Miami/ is centered around Coleman’s design ethos of repurposing and FENDI’s DNA.  The theme takes a literal approach at times, leveraging fabrics from FENDI’s handbags to reupholster furniture in bold mixed logo prints, or printing FENDI archival imagery onto vintage magazine paper to collage a chair.  The repurposing often applies in ways that are less physical and more metaphorical. FENDI’s iconic prints are warped and manipulated in FaceTune, an app usually used for Instagram editing, but instead used to create art.  FENDI’s iconic FF and Pequin logos are reinterpreted by Sarah with a vertigo effect. This printed design will appear on the façade of the FENDI Miami Boutique, as well as on a series of limited-edition Peekaboo handbags.     In collaboration with the artist, a special limited edition of 3 styles of FENDI’s iconic Peekaboo ISeeU bags designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi will launch exclusively at the FENDI Miami Design District Boutique in late November 2020.  The limited edition FENDI Artist Peekaboo will be available in an iconic FENDI yellow with FF embossed design, a white nappa leather with phosphorescent FF beads and embroidery for a glow in the dark effect, and in a canvas body with multicolor FF thread embroidery.     In addition, Sarah has reinterpreted a one of a kind piece of the Designer’s Peekaboo bag in white canvas, transforming it into a multicolored style in plaster and acrylic paint, with FFs cut from suede, glazed with resin. The bold colors of the piece are inspired by the vibrant arts scene in Miami, as well as whimsical toys from the artist’s childhood.     Following tradition and celebrating FENDI’s longstanding relationship with Design Miami/, the boutique will be dressed up for the occasion with a special façade in a concept created by the artist, with the vertigo Pequin FENDI logo in the iconic Maison’s yellow colour.   In addition to the iconic handbags, the artist has created a series of design pieces to be displayed in the Miami boutique during Design Miami/.  Reupholstery using vintage designer bags is one of the artist’s main mediums, which inspired a cushion reupholstered using coated canvas from 1980s FENDI beach bag.   Additional pieces include a vintage rattan peacock chair, refinished in yellow acrylic paint and plaster by the artist, and an acrylic zigzag chair, covered in collage of vintage books and magazines, printed with FENDI archival images, and mixed with warped prints designed by the artist.  This piece features layers of repurposing, from the vintage paper materials used, images drawn from the brand’s archive, and the distortion of iconic FENDI prints.     Inspired by visions of a distant future in which the value of objects can be judged only by their objective appearance, Coleman has created a series of mixed media artwork, made from layers of draped fabric, found objects, and deconstructed vintage FENDI bags. The collection celebrates an unexpectedness in vision and use of materials, a fitting expression of the creativity and innovation of FENDI.   FENDI has commissioned the New York based artist Sarah Coleman to reinterpret the Miami Design District FENDI Boutique and create a series of one of a kind design pieces.     For almost a century FENDI has been committed to redefining luxury through the development of new materials and techniques.  From its foundation, and through Silvia Venturini Fendi’s vision today, the Roman Luxury House has been pushing traditional methodologies and handcraft in new directions.  Inspired by FENDI’s tradition of breaking down barriers of exclusivity and luxury, the artist felt empowered to invent and reimagine.  The result feels retro and classic but also entirely new, inspired by the spirit of the 1970s.     The concept created for Design Miami/ is centered around Coleman’s design ethos of repurposing and FENDI’s DNA.  The theme takes a literal approach at times, leveraging fabrics from FENDI’s handbags to reupholster furniture in bold mixed logo prints, or printing FENDI archival imagery onto vintage magazine paper to collage a chair.  The repurposing often applies in ways that are less physical and more metaphorical.

Part of a lineage of objects d’art that recontextualize everydayproducts, the palladium and brass sculpture is a cross between a bronzed baby shoe keepsake and a Dadaist Readymade, transforming the functional Balenciaga sneaker into an inflexible solid.     Referencing the original shoe’s particular place in popular culture and daily life,this metal version, weighing 2,5 kilograms, alludes to the definitive sentimental value and trophy status of designed goods. It is made in Italy with 16 cast brass pieces that are soldered and sealed, then coated with palladium.     The first Balenciaga Object is sold in a limited edition. Only 20 Track.2 sculptures will be available worldwide. Launching on November 20th, 2020, Balenciaga presents Objects: a category of items produced outside of the fashion collections.

PRADA RELEASES THE NEW CLEO BAG

PRADA RELEASES THE NEW CLEO BAG

Accessories An evolution of identity, a reinvention of heritage. Debuted in Prada ‘Multiple Views’ SS21 show and featured in the Spring/Summer 2021 Womenswear collection, the Cleo line of women’s accessories draws influence from archival Prada styles and traditional craft techniques, to create a synthesis of classicism and futurism. Reminders of a past here paradoxically project constantly forwards: their familiarity is a vehicle for proposing the new.     Precise, sleek and streamlined, each of the Cleo styles is formed over custom lasts, their striking modernist shapes created from time-honoured methodologies, underscoring Prada’s expertise in the creation of leather accessories since 1913. Silhouettes are inherently feminine, combining strength of construction with a purity and delicacy of line. A curved base is juxtaposed with softly sloping sides, intimately engineered to hug when worn against the body.     The surfaces of the Cleo are tactile, sensuous, brushed calfskin and lightweight spazzolato calf leather featuring the enamel Prada triangle logo. Offered as flap and top-opening styles, the Cleo is executed in an unexpected palette: timeless black and white, orchidea blush, and a signature Prada acqua.     Echoing the past as a tool to propose a future, the Cleo is emblematic of Prada’s approach, of history as a catalyst for innovation.     The Prada Cleo is available through Prada boutiques and the online flagship of prada.com     Discover more on prada.com An evolution of identity, a reinvention of heritage.

VERSACE LAUNCHED THE TRIGRECA SNEAKER

VERSACE LAUNCHED THE TRIGRECA SNEAKER

Accessories Drop 1 of the brand’s new Trigreca sneaker was launched on October 1st. First seen on the Fall-Winter 2020 runway, the style steps up the already impressive Versace footwear edit. Encompassing iconic brand codes, the design is unmistakably Versace.      The Trigreca draws inspiration from the brand’s Greca pattern. A celebration of Versace’s Magna Graecia heritage, the symbol was first used in the Fall-Winter 1988 Collection. The Greca is a geometric pattern created from one, uninterrupted line. The motif was historically seen in many ancient Greek temples, representations of labyrinths, buildings and in pottery – especially from the Geometric period. Symbolizing infinity and unity, it reflects a recurring theme in Versace creations. The Greca pattern adorns three points of the Trigreca sneaker: the dimensional sole, the midsole and the decorative upper toe stripe.       The design’s cork "Greca Cushioning System" adds support and comfort, as well as providing chunky elevation. To celebrate the brand’s HQ location, Milan’s geographical coordinates are printed along the upper. There’s also a hidden 3D Medusa located in the sole – another iconic signature of the brand.        Black, white, green, blue and red versions of the sneaker will launch on October 1st, exclusively on Versace.com and in selected Versace boutiques. The brand will partner with e-commerce retail platform ssense.com on a wider launch with added colorways in November. Drop 1 of the brand’s new Trigreca sneaker was launched on October 1st.
