FENDI launches a #FendiPeekaboo video starring award winning actress Naomi Watts

Fashion The new video, called ‘Wild Untamed Naomi’ is a vignette of a private moment in Naomi Watt’s day within her apartment in New York, documenting her hidden and surprising side, accompanied by the FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU bag.     What starts as an average and restless day becomes untamed as Naomi escapes into her own world and discovers the joy of releasing stress and anxiety through a cathartic release of movement, unleashing her inner, wilder, and unseen side. With the help of her FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU bags, Naomi will seek out the extraordinary in the ordinary.     The wistful instrumental music, reflecting Naomi’s initial restless mood, leaves space to the catchy and upbeat electro-pop track, ‘Beggin’ by Canadian duo HUMANS, which brightens the atmosphere and evokes the audience to dance along with Naomi during the video.   Intimate in scope and irreverent in tone, the video is a journey to self-love that plays with the FENDI values of creativity, craftsmanship and playful spirit, whilst celebrating the eternal narrative of the FENDI Peekaboo bag – the hidden beauty within.   “I love the colours! And it is a classic shape that’s very functional, whether you’re travelling with it or just using it as a day to-day bag. It just works.” said Naomi Watts about the FENDI Peekaboo bag.   Presented for the first time in the FENDI Fall/Winter 2020-21 Collection, the iconic Peekaboo ISeeU features an accordion-frame shape, to open in a deep ‘smile’ featuring inside pockets which can be interchangeable in smooth leather or precious skins and personalised with one’s initials.   The #FendiPeekaboo video featuring Naomi Watts launches globally on 31st March 2021.     #FendiPeekaboo #Fendi   Access the ‘Wild Untamed Naomi’ video here         Credits Directed by Sophia Li Executive Producer & Talent Director: Rikki Keene Fashion Editor: Melissa Levy Director of Photography: Isabella Tan Lighting Design and Photographer: Andy Harrington Hair: Ryan Trygstad Make-Up: Mary Wiles Set Design: Kyle Hagemeier Movement Director: Elena Vazintaris Producer: Antonia Tedroff Project Manager: Mollie Dixon Editor: Nicholas Blatt Track: “Beggin (Gang Signs Remix)” by HUMANS The new video, called ‘Wild Untamed Naomi’ is a vignette of a private moment in Naomi Watt’s day within her apartment in New York, documenting her hidden and surprising side, accompanied by the FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU bag.     What starts as an average and restless day becomes untamed as Naomi escapes into her own world and discovers the joy of releasing stress and anxiety through a cathartic release of movement, unleashing her inner, wilder, and unseen side.

Montblanc 1858  presents "A New Gold is born"

Montblanc 1858 presents "A New Gold is born"

Watches Montblanc unveils the Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18 crafted out of an exclusive and innovative 18 K gold alloy called Lime Gold, a true watch for connoisseurs who likes distinctive vintage timepieces.     Precise, legible, and robust for use in extreme conditions, the legendary professional Minerva watches from the 1920s and 1930s were conceived for military use. Inspired by these historical ones, the Montblanc 1858 product line pays tribute to the Minerva heritage. The Montblanc 1858 timepieces are designed and conceived as tool watches for mountain exploration and leaning into the global trend of enjoying the outdoors and nature.     Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18   Reinterpreting a 46 mm Minerva historical military chronograph from the 1930s equipped with the original calibre 19-09CH, the Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18 features a case made of an innovative 18K gold alloy called Lime Gold, a distinctive gold-coloured dial with contrasting green elements and a matching vintage green nubuck calf strap – an harmony of colour making this timepiece unique.   It is the first time that a watch Maison unveils a model with this colour of gold fondly named Lime Gold thanks to its deep golden colour that veers towards a pale yellowy green. The Lime Gold colour is made of a special alloy composed of 18 K Gold (Au 750‰), Silver (Ag 238‰) and Iron (Fe 12‰) that provides the distinctive colour giving a true vintage aesthetics.   To match the colour of the new 44 mm 18 K Lime Gold case, the Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18 features a distinctive gold-coloured dial with sunray finishes. Providing great readability and vintage style, the monochrome aesthetic is combined with contrasting green-coloured elements of different tones such as the luminescent cathedral-shaped hour- and minute-hands, the minuterie, the central split-second hand, the tachymeter and telemeter scales, as well as the historical Montblanc emblem at 12 o’clock. In order to give a three-dimensional look both at day/night, the Arabic numerals are fully made of Super-LumiNovawith a special patented process that encapsulates the luminescent material and create a ‘monobloc’ shape without  any outlines. Gold-coloured has been chosen for the central chronograph second hand as well as for the chronograph 30-minute- and small second-counters.   The glass above the dial has an anti-magnetized treatment on the inside top sapphire crystal to enable greater precision of the chronograph’s two second hands.   Like on the original timepiece, the Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18 has a telemeter scale that runs around the dial. The telemeter was a common feature on the legendary Minerva chronographs and adds both function and a vintage touch to this new watch. A telemeter makes it possible to measure the distance of a phenomenon which is both visible and audible, like the lightning and thunder in a storm. The watch also has a tachymeter (base 1000) at the centre of the dial in a colimaçon (snail shape) which lets the user measure a length of time of up to three minutes instead of one minute as it is the case in traditional chronographs. The tachymeter indicates the speed of a moving object, such as a car, over a known distance.   The case back reveals the Manufacture monopusher chronograph calibre MB M16.31 taking its inspiration from the original Minerva calibres 19-09CH from 1909 and the evolution, the 17-29, developed in the 1930s, that were used for both pocket watches and wristwatches. The calibre MB M16.31 is particularly beautiful thanks to its handcrafted traditional finishings such as Côtes de Genève, inner angles, circular graining and bevelling – all performed at the Montblanc Manufacture in Villeret. The Split Second mechanism in the centre brings even more light to the entire movement.   For this limited edition, the plates and bridges are made in Maillechort (German-silver) plated in 18 K gold harmoniously matching the 18 K Lime Gold case and the dial. The calibre has two column wheels for the chronograph and the split complication, horizontal coupling and a power reserve of 50 hours. Like its predecessor, it is composed of the same V-shape bridge (whose design was protected in 1912) and a large balance wheel with 18 screws beating at the traditional frequency of 2.5 Hz / 18,000 A/H.     The Montblanc 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 18 is completed with a new vintage green nubuck alligator leather strap that has been finished with beige stitching to reinforce the vintage look. The strap is also fitted with a matching 18 K Lime Gold buckle for the perfect finishing touch.

SPRING-SUMMER 2021 RUNWAY DISCOVER THE FILM IMAGINED BY (LA)HORDE FOR ISABEL MARANT

Fashion Around the Pol Bury’s fountains in Paris, nothing is like it used to be. Isabel Marant decided to get rid of the tent and stands and take a step into the adjoining garden to focus on the essential.     The models walk unperturbed while a swarm of bodies is unleashed around them. Speeding, carrying each other, losing their balance, the bodies convey the urgency to adapt to a world that is tipping over. A transformation of energies takes place in order to bring us movement, energy, light and joy.     The film imagined by (LA)HORDE for Isabel Marant is intended to capture the energy and experience shared with the audience during a live show. This moment of jubilation and liberation of the body makes even more sense today in a world that has not yet reopened, and where dance has still not found its place.   Isabel Marant’s invitation to the dancers still resonates in our bodies and souls, like a reminiscence of a future we hope is near!     Please find below the link to the YouTube video of the SS21 Show by (LA)HORDE : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKzObCvs198 Around the Pol Bury’s fountains in Paris, nothing is like it used to be. Isabel Marant decided to get rid of the tent and stands and take a step into the adjoining garden to focus on the essential.     The models walk unperturbed while a swarm of bodies is unleashed around them.

Fashion For the ‘Symbiosis’ series, Iris van Herpen, Maria Bodil and Post Neon reference the symbiotic relationship with nature by returning to the roots of our existence; the fungal network. The collaboration aims to visualise the miraculous lacery of interconnectedness from the fungi empire that weaves a dialogue between the terrestrial and the underworld.   The concept of the creation stems from the notion of symbiosis. In these rarefied times, an increasing number of people turn to the natural world, a place considered to be substantial and reliable.   The creative duo envisioned an ‘alternative reality’ in which nature and technology co-exist in harmony, nourishing each other in a sacred balancing act. The complex but elegant structures of mycelium network take centre stage in this alternate world. By exploring 3D generative shapes and textures, the creative studio Post Neon enhanced this utopian reality. Flourishing out of the surrealistic landscape, the models pose the questions: could technology and nature exist in a state of symbiosis?   This synergic collaboration comes as a natural evolution of Iris van Herpen’s multidisciplinary approach to the art of fashion and matches seamlessly with Maria Bodil’s practice of creating with leading designers. Maria Bodil is a new creative direction duo working at the intersection of photography, film and design. The duo consists of Lieve Maria Eek and Marthe Bodil Vos, Post Neon, a young creative studio based in Amsterdam, explored alternate realities, physical and non psychical spaces in the post-production of this series.

SHOPPING AT TWOJEYS WITH BITCOIN

Jewelry THE BRAND FOUNDED BY JOAN MARGARIT AND BIEL JUSTE ALLOWS PAYMENT WITH CRYPTOCURRENCIES ON ITS WEBSITE The world is changing, stores are now e-commerce and companies are start-ups reinventing traditional businesses.  The format in which we shop has evolved over the years, from the peseta to the euro, the credit card or our smartphone. This 2021 we woke up with one of the most relevant news of the millennium, cryptocurrency is the future - not only do we say so, but financial experts have also spoken loud and clear - and TwoJeys takes a step forward and accepts payment with them through its website.     TWOJEYS is the first jewelry e-commerce to accept payment in Bitcoin and Ethereum through the Coinbase platform.     This March the news at TwoJeys has been more than relevant. Just a week ago, the 'TJ Vending Machine' was inaugurated in the Headquarters of the brand, from which you can buy exclusive products of the brand, pre-orders and accessories.   TJ joins the boom and integrates payment with BTC and ETH through the gateway offered by Coinbase. Travel, cars and even houses are just a small part of what you can now buy with them. Today, the speed at which technology and the digital world are advancing is incredibly fast and, probably in the not too distant future, it will be even surprising that e-commerce that do not yet use bitcoin.   Being a young company like TwoJeys has a great advantage because those who know best how to adapt to the new times are the same people who were born and grew up in them.   THE BRAND FOUNDED BY JOAN MARGARIT AND BIEL JUSTE ALLOWS PAYMENT WITH CRYPTOCURRENCIES ON ITS WEBSITE The world is changing, stores are now e-commerce and companies are start-ups reinventing traditional businesses.  The format in which we shop has evolved over the years, from the peseta to the euro, the credit card or our smartphone. This 2021 we woke up with one of the most relevant news of the millennium, cryptocurrency is the future - not only do we say so, but financial experts have also spoken loud and clear - and TwoJeys takes a step forward and accepts payment with them through its website.     TWOJEYS is the first jewelry e-commerce to accept payment in Bitcoin and Ethereum through the Coinbase platform.     This March the news at TwoJeys has been more than relevant.
