Cartier introduces their Pasha community

Jewelry Rami Malek, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang: five authentic journeys, five accomplished talents captured by the New York fashion photographer Craig McDean.     With its distinctive codes and extraordinary design, the Pasha watch has always been for those who take a wider view of the world. This breadth of vision is shared by a new generation of talents who have cultivated their own uniqueness, like Maisie Williams, the English actress involved in various collaborative projects, or actor Rami Malek who is drawn to complex and captivating roles that don’t conform to Hollywood’s traditional standards. Personalities like the artists Troye Sivan or Willow Smith who rely on courage to assert themselves and have faith in their creativity and versatility; or in the desire to unite and connect young people, as shown by the success of the Chinese singer Jackson Wang.     “Since its creation in the 1980s, the Pasha watch has embodied a certain idea of success directly linked to its extroverted design, power and graphic nonconformism. It is as edgy as ever and in tune with today's new generation of creators. These new Pasha ambassadors owe their success to their differences, creativity, connection, multidisciplinary talents and generosity.” Arnaud Carrez, International Marketing and Communications Director of Cartier International     The Pasha de Cartier watch launches in China on 1st July and 4th September around the world. Available in 35 mm and 41 mm in steel, gold, vibrant diamond-set and skeleton movement versions.

Daniëlle Cathari: The Krul, First Memories of the Flourish of Approval

Fashion   With the Daniëlle Cathari Spring/Summer ‘20 collection, Cathari introduced her collaboration with Dutch artist Nazif Lopulissa, which was focused on the ‘Krul’, standing for the “flourish or approval”. The ‘Krul’, which is a typical Dutch symbol used when doing something right or to check something off the list, was inspired and drawn from Cathari’s personal experiences and moments within.     When starting with this concept, Cathari came across the works of Nazif, got inspired and felt related to his choice of colors, materials and shapes; it was an instant match. The collaboration resulted in not only artworks for the clothing, it also marked the first multidisciplinary product for the brand with the ‘Krul’ art object.     To highlight the ‘Krul’, Daniëlle Cathari collaborated with Dutch director Daan van Citters to bring the object into visualization through a conceptual video. Told through different stories by individuals in their personal environments, the video focuses on a nostalgic feeling and the first memories of the typical Dutch symbol.     The multifunctional ‘Krul’ art object is available to purchase at daniellecathari.com.     Credits: Creative Director: Daniëlle Cathari Director: Daan van Citters DOP: Milan van Dril Music: Joris Titawano Artist collaborator: Nazif Lopulissa   Special thanks to Britta Flinterman, Gijs Bouwens, Vera van Erp, Boudine Ottevanger and Malou Wüstefeld.       watch the full video here: https://vimeo.com/431749774     With the Daniëlle Cathari Spring/Summer ‘20 collection, Cathari introduced her collaboration with Dutch artist Nazif Lopulissa, which was focused on the ‘Krul’, standing for the “flourish or approval”.

KOMONO X ROYAL ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS ANTWERP FASHION DEPARTMENT

Accessories After a successful first edition, KOMONO is proud to renew its partnership with the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. KOMONO worked together with three master students in the creation of a pair of sunglasses linked to the students’ personal work. The result is an outspoken collection that bolsters the fresh vision of tomorrow’s top designers.     KOMONO x Annemarie Saric:   Inspired by the concept cars of the late 70s and their aerodynamic qualities, Annemarie Saric’s futuristic-looking proposition features a shaped lens and intricate temple detailing. Formed by a cut-out and collage technique of vintage car parts, the glasses are characterized by their highly sculptural effect.     KOMONO x Karolina Widecka:   Investigating the duality between a fragile appearance and an extreme shape, Karolina Widecka proposes a capsule drenched in superstition and symbolism. Inspired by ex votos and Mexican religious art, the glasses function as a token of protection for its wearer with its ‘broken glass’ upper bar.     KOMONO x Florentina Leitner:   Florentina Leitner took to the 60s and its psychedelic art to create a pair of glasses that have been stretched and liquified to a vertigo or spiralling effect. Paying tribute to the art icons of those days such as Peggy Guggenheim, the capsule is a modern reinterpretation of the avant-garde eyewear of yesteryear.     The collection will be made available, starting from July 2nd, through komono.com, KOMONO flagship stores and selected retailers for a suggested retail price of 199 euros. On the initiative of the students, part of the proceedings of this sale will go to Survived and Punished, a US-based organization who supports survivors of domestic and sexual violence who have been incarcerated or targeted by law enforcement. They also created an exclusive colorway of the sunglasses for each student, limited to 1 piece only. These pieces will sold during a 24h auction on their @komono Instagram page on the 1st of July. These styles are limited to one piece per student and will not be sold through any other channels. The proceedings of the highest bid will be donated to Survived and Punished.

Soho House Amsterdam

Design Soho House Amsterdam opened in the summer of 2018, in the Bungehuis building on the Spuistraat. The canal-side House has 79 bedrooms, a rooftop pool, a floor of club space and Cecconi's restaurant & Cowshed spa on the ground floor.     The rooftop has a swimming pool and bar overlooking the city, with a geometric-pattern tiled floor, sun loungers and parasols, and chairs and tables for eating and drinking. On the 5th Floor, the main members’ space overlooks the canal, with bold fabrics, antique furniture mixed with specially designed pieces, geometric rugs and a high-gloss black floor. The wall panelling is inspired by the listed detailing in the Bungehuis, with the original blue tiling, and a bar clad in fabric inspired by the Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder ‘hidden church’ in the city. The space has comfortable seating and a big open fire, with the adjacent Library, which has its own bar and small workspace area. On the other side, House Kitchen serves food and drinks all day, with a big open kitchen and deli counter. The space is decorated in pinks and Hague blues, with banquette seating, lounge chairs and vintage tables and lamps. A rug runs down the centre of the room, with a tiled floor and timber detailing, and linen fabrics and plants, making the space feel light and open. Next door, is a DJ booth for performances and members’ events on evenings and weekends. The space has its own lounge and bar, with deep green cork flooring and acoustic soundproofing in the walls. On the 4th Floor, House Gym looks out over the canal with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, HIIT and yoga studios. The ceilings are painted in a high-gloss canal green, mirroring the view outside, and reflecting the resin cross pattern, the Amsterdam city symbol. The changing rooms feature terrazzo flooring, with marble mosaic showers and steam and sauna rooms. The Screening Room on the same floor has velvet armchairs, footstalls and vintage lamps on individual side tables. A small pre-screening bar has high gloss lacquered and velvet clad walls, mirrored tables, dark fabric sofas and armchairs, and a ribbed timber bar serving drinks and snacks.     The 79 bedrooms are across floors 1-3, ranging in size from Tiny to Extra-Large. Each of the rooms has antique pieces mixed with specially designed furniture and rugs. The bed throws and fabrics are inspired by the original windows in the grand Bungehuis staircase, with tables, poufs and sofas designed by Soho House. The first floor bedrooms are mostly Monumental Rooms, big, large and extra large with a listed corridor clad in limestone, tiles that have been meticulously restored by a specialist team, restored art deco lighting, original wall panelling and mosaic tiled floors. Each of the bedrooms retains the 1930’s timber panelling and stained glass windows, with prominent art deco sculptures. In the centre of larger rooms are specially designed pod bathrooms, clad with fabric and with freestanding copper bathtubs. Cecconi’s restaurant and Cowshed spa on the ground floor.   The Ground Floor of Soho House Amsterdam is open to the public, with Cecconi’s, a Cowshed spa, the Allis Bar and private hire rooms. Cecconi’s serves hand-made pasta, seafood, and dishes from Northern Italy, with a dining area that overlooks the canal, a comfortable lounge area with low seating, a locally-sourced wine tasting table and a large curved bar. The space has a glass retractable roof, with plants weaved into the ceiling, leather banquettes, vintage rugs, and specially made pendant lights, with the signature Cecconi’s marble striped floor in deep red.. Originating in Venice, Cecconi’s Amsterdam joins sister restaurants in London, New York, Miami, West Hollywood, Istanbul, Barcelona and Berlin. Cowshed, also on the ground floor and open to the public too, has six treatment rooms, two barber chairs and four treatment chairs offering a range of services and Cowshed products to take home. The space is decorated in soft greens, with painted wooden ceilings and floors and light linen fabrics. The Allis Bar is a lounge and bar serving light meals and cocktails, offering a slice of the House’s relaxed atmosphere to the public. The bar is open on Friday and Saturday from 6pm to 2am, making it the perfect spot for both early aperitifs and late-night drinks.     There are three private hire spaces, which have art deco design, with bold patterned fabrics and wooden floors and each has a bar with removable furniture and the spaces can accommodate anywhere between 12 to 80 guests. These spaces can be hired separately, and two can be combined with the main Allis Bar area.     The Soho House Amsterdam art collection, curated by head of collections for Soho House Kate Bryan, is made up of works by local artists; showing a contemporary take on 15th and 16th century Dutch art. The collection acknowledges the history of Dutch art; a self-portrait wall in homage to Rembrandt and Van Gogh, two of the greatest self portraitists, works dealing with landscape that reference the great golden age of Dutch landscape oil painters, and a series of still life works in Cecconi’s.     The Bungehuis was built in the 1930s as a trading office, and since the 1970’s served as the humanities building for the University of Amsterdam. The six-story building is covered in limestone and granite, with bay windows on each side, and art deco details. The interior has original architectural features in bronze, stained glass, and birch timber as well as monumental glazed tiles.           Soho House Amsterdam Spuistraat 210, 1012 VT Amsterdam, Netherlands www.sohohouseamsterdam.com Soho House Amsterdam opened in the summer of 2018, in the Bungehuis building on the Spuistraat.

SmithDavidson Gallery in Amsterdam exhibits with Zhuang Hong Yi

Art After Miami and Mexico City, SmithDavidson Gallery in Amsterdam presents a new solo exhibition of Zhuang Hong Yi from July 3rd until September 5th, 2020. The gallery celebrates 10 years of collaboration with the Chinese artist. The exhibition 'In Bloom' shows a colorful selection of floral landscapes and collage paintings with prominent use of origami rice paper.     Zhuang Hong Yi is currently one of the most celebrated international Chinese artists. He experiments with medium, technique, scale and above all with color. His work is sometimes bold and expressive, at other times delicate and impressionistic. The artist mostly works three dimensional and always layered with color and meaning. The optical illusions in his illuminating use of paint make the canvas shimmer like a rising sun, while the changing colors in the 'Flowerbed' series are reminiscent of the changing of the seasons.     All elements of nature appear in the intriguing and sculptural works of Zhuang Hong Yi combined with Eastern and Western influences. The flower motif, a significant image in Chinese culture, dominates his paintings. Utilizing hand-cut and folded pieces of painted rice paper, the works  represent traditional Chinese aesthetics.     Zhuang Hong Yi (Sichuan, 1962) started his artistic education at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in Chongqing and finished at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. Since 1992 he has lived and worked between the Netherlands and Beijing. The artist has exhibited in museums and galleries all over the world. In the Netherlands at Kunsthal Rotterdam (1999), Groninger Museum (2001 and 2007) and Museum de Zwarte Tulp in Lisse (2019). In 2013 his work was selected for the Venice Biennale.      Smith Davidson Gallery, founded in 1969 and with three locations in Amsterdam, Miami and Mexico City, has represented Zhuang Hong Yi for the past ten years. David Smith and Gabriëlle Davidson presented the artist at leading art fairs such as Art Miami, Expo Chicago, PAN Amsterdam, TEFAF Maastricht and Zona Maco in Mexico City. In 2021 a solo exhibition in Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in Saint Petersburg is planned. The autonomous work of Hong Yi is held in numerous esteemed public and private collections worldwide.     www.smith-davidson.com After Miami and Mexico City, SmithDavidson Gallery in Amsterdam presents a new solo exhibition of Zhuang Hong Yi from July 3rd until September 5th, 2020.

Utilizing hand-cut and folded pieces of painted rice paper, the works  represent traditional Chinese aesthetics.     Zhuang Hong Yi (Sichuan, 1962) started his artistic education at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in Chongqing and finished at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. Since 1992 he has lived and worked between the Netherlands and Beijing. The artist has exhibited in museums and galleries all over the world. In the Netherlands at Kunsthal Rotterdam (1999), Groninger Museum (2001 and 2007) and Museum de Zwarte Tulp in Lisse (2019). In 2013 his work was selected for the Venice Biennale.      Smith Davidson Gallery, founded in 1969 and with three locations in Amsterdam, Miami and Mexico City, has represented Zhuang Hong Yi for the past ten years. David Smith and Gabriëlle Davidson presented the artist at leading art fairs such as Art Miami, Expo Chicago, PAN Amsterdam, TEFAF Maastricht and Zona Maco in Mexico City. In 2021 a solo exhibition in Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in Saint Petersburg is planned. The autonomous work of Hong Yi is held in numerous esteemed public and private collections worldwide.     www.smith-davidson.com
