RECENTLY REFRESHED X BANK IS THE CREATIVE HUB FOR DUTCH DESIGN

Things to do THE CONCEPT STORE INTRODUCES NEW DESIGNERS, FEATURES, AND EXHIBITIONS      X BANK, the place to be for Dutch art, fashion, and design, has undergone a true metamorphosis. The concept store has moved and offers a (new) stage to prominent Dutch designers. For years, X BANK has been a creative platform where young talent and established names from the Netherlands have the opportunity to show their work to the general public. Although the shops were closed for a while, the search for new designers, projects, and exhibitions continued as usual. New talents and brands such as Casper Braat, Skua Studio, and Iris Maree can be found in an entirely new shopping experience in the heart of Amsterdam.     Moving in:   X BANK has recently moved to around 200 m2 on the ground floor in the building at Spuistraat 172, so there is a direct connection to the energetic capital, and shopping in this leading concept store has become more accessible. The enthusiastic X BANK team is ready to welcome visitors.     New names:   A renewed look also includes a list of new names for the repertoire, such as Studio Drift, Youngblood Jewelry, Casper Braat, Skua Studio, and NISSUE have been added to the list. There are also new features, such as a perfume bar, where a new brand has been introduced: Salle Privée. In addition, a wall-mounted LP player from Wheel By Miniot provides pleasant music while shopping. In the "vinyl corner", visitors can immerse themselves in all the LPs ranging from Motown classics to recent pop hits - which are also available for purchase.     Exhibitions:   Since the dawn of X BANK, the location has been a destination for contemporary art and various art exhibitions, which vary every 3 to 4 months. Even right now there is a work on display: Xblue collection by Jackie Sleper, specially made for the renewed X BANK. In addition, the Tiger by Iwan Smit and Du Coin Wall Art by Agnes van der Hoek can be admired.     About X BANK:   Situated in the city center of Amsterdam, X BANK is the stage for influential, promising, and established Dutch designers. X BANK is an eclectic shop, exhibition space, gallery, and meeting place for everyone with an interest in leading fashion, design, and art. X BANK is part of Sircle Collection. More information can be found via the website or Instagram page.     X BANK is located at Spuistraat 172, Amsterdam, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Sunday from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.   THE CONCEPT STORE INTRODUCES NEW DESIGNERS, FEATURES, AND EXHIBITIONS      X BANK, the place to be for Dutch art, fashion, and design, has undergone a true metamorphosis.

CHANEL presents the new beautiful Cruise 2021/22 collection

Fashion   It was under the sign of Jean Cocteau that Virginie Viard began to think about the CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 collection: "Because Gabrielle Chanel was close to Cocteau, and I love the film Testament of Orpheus. In particular this magnificent scene: a man with a black horse's head descends into the Carrières de Lumières, his silhouette cut out against the very white walls". Destination: the Carrières de Lumières, in Les Baux-de-Provence, for a highly graphic show, "because the simplicity, the precision and the poetry of Cocteau's film made me want to create a very clean collection, with a very distinct two-tone, made up of bright white and deep black". Nothing better to capture and reflect the light, so loved by Cocteau and Chanel, than these contrasts between the radiant whiteness of a long shirt-dress and black macramé capes, between a white tweed jacket embroidered with lucky charms and a black dress in velvet and leather. "Echoing the extreme modernity of Cocteau's film, I wanted something quite rock. Lots of fringes, in leather, beads and sequins, t-shirts bearing the face of the model Lola Nicon like a rock star, worn with tweed suits trimmed with wide braids, and pointed silver Mary-Janes. A look that recalls as much the modernity of the sixties as that of punk...". It was in Gabrielle Chanel's recently restored apartment at 31 rue Cambon that Inez & Vinoodh photographed six outfits for the press kit. "Because it was there that Gabrielle Chanel housed her favourite bestiary, her lions, female sphinxes, but also deer, which are printed, along with other symbols of the House, on a long negligee-style dress in pink-beige and black crêpe. It was also in this apartment that she received her close friends, including Jean Cocteau," concludes Virginie Viard. "Ultimately, through her friendships, it is Chanel, the woman, that I love more and more: her life gives us access to characters just as extraordinary as herself.”    #CHANELCruise   It was under the sign of Jean Cocteau that Virginie Viard began to think about the CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 collection: "Because Gabrielle Chanel was close to Cocteau, and I love the film Testament of Orpheus. In particular this magnificent scene: a man with a black horse's head descends into the Carrières de Lumières, his silhouette cut out against the very white walls". Destination: the Carrières de Lumières, in Les Baux-de-Provence, for a highly graphic show, "because the simplicity, the precision and the poetry of Cocteau's film made me want to create a very clean collection, with a very distinct two-tone, made up of bright white and deep black".

BREITLING’S HERITAGE, REVIVED

BREITLING’S HERITAGE, REVIVED

Watches Inspired by the inventive spirit of Breitling’s founders, the new Premier Heritage Collection is for the modern and discerning man of impeccable taste. These exquisite timepieces are the brand’s most elegant and refined.     “This heritage-inspired design with a stylish modern twist embodies some of Breitling’s most famous innovations, and revives Breitling’s legacy of inventing the modern chronograph. This truly is our heritage revived,” says Georges Kern of Breitling’s timelessly elegant new collection.     The Premier Heritage Collection pays homage to Breitling’s very own Founders Squad: three generations of men who changed the history of timekeeping and made Breitling what it is today. Léon Breitling founded the company in 1884; later, he patented a simple timer/tachymeter that could measure any speed between 15 and 150 km/h, an invention featured in the 1906 Vitesse pocket watch.     In 1915, his son, Gaston, created one of the first wrist-worn chronographs with an independent pusher at 2 o’clock. This innovation separated the start, stop, and reset functions from the crown, making it infinitely more practical for timing sports.     In 1934, Léon’s grandson, Willy, patented the second independent chronograph pusher at 4 o’clock. Among Willy Breitling’s celebrated pioneering achievements was the establishment of the Huit Aviation Department in 1938.     VERY IMPECCABLE TASTE:   Besides being bold and tech savvy, Willy Breitling understood people’s desire for a touch of elegance and glamour. This inspired him to design the original Premier wristwatches in the 1940s, Breitling’s first step in linking purpose with style. As Willy saw it, “When a man puts on his watch, it is the unmistakable stamp of impeccable taste.”     The latest generation of Premiers – Breitling’s Premier Heritage Collection – brings this timeless elegance back to life. The collection includes six watches divided into three distinctive categories: The Chronograph, The Duograph, and The Datora.     All feature Arabic numerals, vintage-inspired hands and semi-shiny alligator straps with tone- on-tone stitching. Every watch is a COSC-certified chronometer and water-resistant up to 100 meters.     MANY GROUNDBREAKING FUNCTIONS:     The 40 mm Premier Heritage Chronograph is manually wound, just like its 1940s predecessors. It is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, which is based on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. It comes in two variations: with an eye-catching pistachio-green dial encased in stainless steel or a stately silver-colored dial encased in 18 k red gold.     With stainless-steel and 18 k red gold cases measuring 42 mm, the Premier Heritage Duograph comes with a blue or black dial, respectively. Its rattrapante function – one of the most elaborate in watchmaking – enables the wearer to measure two elapsed times simultaneously thanks to its two superimposed chronograph hands. This piece houses the mechanical hand-wound Breitling Manufacture Caliber B15, which is based on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B03.     Like its 1940s predecessor, the 42 mm Premier Heritage Datora also stands out for its highly visible and complex functions, namely its day, date, and moon-phase displays. It is powered by the Manufacture Caliber B25. The Datora’s copper-colored face is framed by a stainless-steel case, while its silver-colored dial comes in an 18 k red gold one.     All three models of the Premier Heritage Collection highlight Breitling’s mastery of timekeeping as it has evolved over the generations.

AUDEMARS PIGUET PRESENTS GREEN HUES FOR THE ROYAL OAK

Watches Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer, Audemars Piguet, is pleased to unveil several new Royal Oak models enriched with green dials. The new offerings include a 950platinum Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin with a smoked green dial embellished with a sunburst pattern, as well as a limited-edition Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph with an 18-carat yellowgold case and a green “Grande Tapisserie” dial. Lastly, the Manufacture also presents three new Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon variants in pink gold or titanium, all of which incorporate green hues.     Audemars Piguet first employed colourful stone dials during the 1970s, in brown, green and blue tones. This paved the way for a new generation of lively and expressive dials in the 1990s, whichhave permeated the Manufacture’s collections ever since.     ROYAL OAK “JUMBO” EXTRA-THIN     The 39mm “Jumbo” is presented with a full 950 platinum case and bracelet as well as a smoked green dial adorned with a sunburst pattern. This is the first time that this configuration has been employed within the 15202 collection. Just 8.1 mm in thickness, the case also confers a slender appearance. The white gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands are treated with luminescent coating,aiding legibility in dim light. The “Audemars Piguet” signature is positioned below noon, while the AP initials are located at 6 o’clock, as “Jumbo” convention dictates. At the heart of the watch is the selfwinding Manufacture Calibre 2121 fitted with a 22-carat gold oscillating weight. The inventory of functions includes: hours, minutes and date. The Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin is exclusively reserved for AP Houses.     ROYAL OAK SELFWINDING CHRONOGRAPH     The Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph is offered in a new colourway, pairing an 18-carat yellowgold case with a green dial. The dial is adorned with a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern complemented with three snailed counters. The “Audemars Piguet” name on the dial is formed of 24-carat gold andrealised using galvanic growth. The model is fitted with a solid caseback engraved with “Limited Edition” (125 pieces). Housed in a 41mm case, this version of the Royal Oak is powered by the selfwinding Manufacture Calibre 2385 which includes an 18-carat gold oscillating weight. As well as its chronograph, the movement indicates the hours, minutes, small seconds and date. In addition to the yellow gold bracelet, with AP folding clasp, the model is supplied with two additional straps: green calfskin and green rubber.       ROYAL OAK SELFWINDING FLYING TOURBILLON   Upholding Audemars Piguet’s reputation for making high complications, the Royal Oak SelfwindingFlying Tourbillon showcases the talents of the Manufacture’s craftspeople with three new variants and much hand-finishing in evidence. Each option is presented in a 41mm case and is endowed with a green Tapisserie dial enriched with a sunburst pattern. The first reference comes with an 18-carat pink gold case with matching hour-markers and hands. This model is limited to just 10 pieces. The second model, limited to 50 pieces, is crafted in full titanium. The third model, limited to 15 pieces, combines a titanium case with an 18-carat white gold bezel set with 32 baguette-cut emeralds (~2.41 carats), each individually cut, faceted and set by hand. The emeralds’ verdant huesenhance the green colour of the Tapisserie dial, while offering a unique play of light. Both titanium models incorporate white gold applied hour-makers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and are complemented with a titanium bracelet. All models are equipped with the selfwinding Manufacture Calibre 2950, the latest generation of the Audemars Piguet flying tourbillon. Unlike a conventional tourbillon, a flying tourbillon eschews the upper bridge, affording views of the escapement, regulating organ and cage in motion.     “Born in Le Brassus, raised around the world.”   Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer, Audemars Piguet, is pleased to unveil several new Royal Oak models enriched with green dials.

VALENTINO COLLEZIONE MILANO PRESENTS THE PAINTER ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

Art The art world enters the Maison Valentino universe for the newest chapter of its Advertising Campaign.     Looking to its community, Pierpaolo Piccioli continues to convey the values of authenticity and individuality by creating, and not imposing, a conversation with diverse communication channels and artists. A new method of delivering messages where the viewer is enriched by feelings and beliefs. Pierpaolo Piccioli believes art is a lens through which one can really touch the nature of the most intimate feelings.     For the artists chapter of Valentino Collezione Milano, Maison Valentino has worked with five international painters, giving them complete freedom to create a work of their choosing, which includes a Valentino Garavani accessory from the collection.     Each of the painters is an emerging talent in their area and on the global art scene. Louise Giovanelli, from the UK, created a hyper realistic painting of the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud Top Handle, while Alexis Ralaivao, from France, painted a cropped-in portrait of the same bag in a striking pink hue. Chinese painter Zhang Zihao opted to paint two subjects wearing the Valentino Garavani Crochet sneakers, while Korean artist Nahum Kim envisioned a surreal and otherworldly work featuring the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud Top Handle. Finally, Iori Nagashima, from Japan, created a work using the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud Crochet bag on a subject under rainfall. In all, each work is a testament to the freedom, voice and creativity of each artist.

Check out the new ASICS X Vivienne Westwood collaboration

Accessories For the final drop of the 2021 ASICS X Vivienne Westwood collaboration, the renowned sports brand and iconic British brand saved the best until last with the launch of the exclusive ASICS x VIVIENNE WESTWOOD GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE sneakers.     The ASICS X Vivienne Westwood GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE have been designed with the seminal Westwood DIY aesthetic- playing with deconstruction – and decoding the sneakers raw construction. Each element of the sneaker reveals the next, purposefully contrasted in monochrome or earth tones with vibrant underlays.    Inspired by the technical form of the sneaker, Westwood’s Creative Director, Andreas Kronthaler, wanted the design to showcase the specialised framework of the upper-shoe, celebrating the craftwork behind the design. The GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE’s upper fabric consists of ripstop fabric, traditionally used by the military for its incredible strength and durability – the utilitarian fabric gives a raw textural quality to the structural design of the sneaker.     Although not a running shoe, the midsole and outsole of the GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE keeps the same technologies found in the GEL-KAYANO™ 27, with advanced materials and construction such as GEL™ technology cushioning and DYNAMIC DUOMAX™ technology, which all function together as part of ASICS’ I.G.S™ (Impact Guidance System) .  This comprehensive design philosophy of ASICS proprietary technologies meets the biomechanical needs of various sports and provides a fluid ride and efficient and natural performance.     Time-honoured and distinctive, both ASICS and Vivienne Westwood are brands that draw strength from long- lasting quality of design and materials, using advanced technology and innovation within their work. It’s the sharing of these design philosophies which formed the inspiration for this on-going design collaboration.     The limited model ASICS X VIVIENNE WESTWOOD GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE are available in 2 colour ways – lichen green/ ox brown and white/ lichen rock and will be available from limited global ASICS & Vivienne Westwood stores and online from 1st May 2021 priced at $240/ RMB1690/ £220/ €240.

MARY KATRANTZOU & BVLGARI COLLABORATE ON AN EXCLUSIVE CAPSULE EDITION FRAGRANCE

Fragrances The bold creative vision of the Roman Jeweller and the unlimited imagination of London-based Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou collide in an exciting collaboration ranging from Leather Goods and Textiles to the realm of Perfumery.      Writing a new chapter of the famed “Serpenti Through the Eyes of” saga and introducing the Omnia Capsule Edition by Mary Katrantzou, she infuses her poetic and jubilant style into some of Bvlgari’s most emblematic lines.      A momentous creative encounter exuding with the unbridled exuberance of the Roman Maison and Mary Katrantzou’s uplifting and joyful approach to design.         #OmniaByMaryKatrantzou     Fashion designer Mary Katrantzou reimagines the Bvlgari Omnia universe as an optimistic and colorful dreamworld, collaborating with Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas on a new fragrance and bringing joy to the entire Omnia Collection.       MARY KATRANTZOU CREATES A CAPSULE EDITION FOR OMNIA     The Greek-born, London-based fashion designer Mary Katrantzou is recognized as the “queen of prints” for her exuberant and maximalist creations. Poetic and jubilant, she crafts joy with her visual narrative, bold hues and couture techniques.   Spreading positivity through her creations, her style is the perfect match for Bvlgari’s audacity and the brilliant colors of the Omnia universe.   Inspired by the joyful spirit, vibrant allure and unbridled exuberance of Omnia, fashion designer Mary Katrantzou created an exclusive new fragrance in collaboration with Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas. In this way, Omnia by Mary Katrantzou represents a dialogue between two worlds, one that is the product of shared synergy between the two creators whose bold visions align beautifully with each other and with Bvlgari’s unapologetically vibrant aesthetic.        OMNIA BY MARY KATRANTZOU FLORAL EAU DE PARFUM:  A COLORFUL BOUQUET OF JOY AND OPTIMISM     Captivated by the uplifting energy of nature’s most wondrous flowers, Mary Katrantzou created a world of reassuring and touchable joy.   Reminiscent of Mary Katrantzou’s childhood memories and conjuring Italy’s love affair with spectacular florals, Omnia by Mary Katrantzou is “a beautiful universe that awakens our olfactory and visual senses.”    That was what the designer had in mind as she embarked on the creative process of designing her first fragrance. She envisioned the olfactive emotion as its own universe of colours and flowers. In her imagination, the bottle became a sculptural vase, spilling over with a maximalist flower bouquet that encompasses every gorgeously crafted olfactive note from Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas.    The new fragrance is a caress to the soul and an infusion of optimism in everyday life, exploding with the brightness of Mandarin and accords of Gardenia and Fig Leaf. It is a celebration of life’s purest pleasures: an explosive flower bouquet, the smell of an unforgettable bloom, the joy of colors.   Omnia by Mary Katrantzou is experienced one step at a time: a journey that begins with the moment one encounters the packaging, continues when one holds the bottle in her hands, and culminates when scent meets skin and immerses its wearer in a full-color flash of florals.

GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW SIGNATURE 4G BAG

GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW SIGNATURE 4G BAG

Accessories Givenchy presents its new essential handbag by Creative Director Matthew M. Williams: the 4G.     With its architectural lines and a distinctive attitude, the 4G immediately caught attention when it debuted in the Pre-Fall 2021 collection. A fresh take on an already-iconic emblem, it preserves the perfect symmetry prized by Hubert de Givenchy while reflecting the cosmopolitan air and clean, crisp aesthetics Matthew M. Williams has established for the House. It is both modern and timeless, the ideal signature for any silhouette, by day or by night.     At first glance, the 4G stands out for its pure leatherworking savoir-faire. To achieve a sleek, graphic update on the classic rectangular handbag, Matthew M. Williams worked closely with Givenchy’sexpert craftsmen to select the finest, full-grain box calfskins. Reflecting his love of industrial hardware, clasps are meticulously worked using a highly technical process and a precise alchemy of noble metals: even the crisp sound of its magnetic fastening sets the 4G apart, while nodding to the utilitarian yet luxurious 4G padlocks in the Creative Director’s debut Spring-Summer 2021 collection for Givenchy.     Both 4G styles - a flap bag and a chain bag - blend uncompromising luxury with perfect versatility, moving seamlessly from clutch to shoulder or crossbody styles of wear. The 4G flap bag comes with an elegant, removable strap that may be adjusted thanks to discreet metal brackets. The 4G chain bag features the House’s new, custom-made G-link chain in glamorous silver- or gold-finished metal, which glides through metal hoops to adapt as desired.     The interior of each 4G bag is as beautiful as it is functional. The small 4G flap bag features a main compartment for the essentials, with a flat pocket for storing important cards. Inside the medium 4G flap bag are two flat pockets and one card pocket for ease of use.   The 4G chain bags open to reveal a compartment with six card slots and one flat pocket for the small version, or a roomy interior with a single flat pocket for the medium version. A stylish and practical shoulder piece in leather keeps it anchored in place.   The 4G is available in an array of colors, from neutral black, ivory, or cappuccino beige to seasonal shades of avocado green, baby pink, red and dark khaki. Special finishes include an all-over 4G monogram achieved through high-frequency debossing on leather for a three-dimensional effect (in ivory, pink or black). Patent leather versions, in black or sky blue, have a crinkled finish. A 4G in snake- printed lambskin creates a highly realistic impression of exotic leather; a version in dark emerald green python with gold hardware is also available.     The Givenchy 4G handbag by Matthew M. Williams will debut in-store on May 1st, 2021.     Prices: 4G flap crossbody from 1,290€ (small) to 1,490€ (medium); 4G chain bag from 1,390€ (small) to 1,690€ (medium); exotic 4G in python, 3,190€.   https://www.givenchy.com/nl/en/homepage     Givenchy presents its new essential handbag by Creative Director Matthew M.
