SWAROVSKI MAKES MAGIC IN ITS NEWEST WONDERLAB CREATIONS

Jewelry Swarovski’s Wonderlab, an imaginary world where magic and science meet, comes intofocus in bright technicolor with Collection II.     “Collection II gives us a chance to dive further into our world of wonders. From a closer look into the muses of the Bohemian movement to the design aesthetic of our Austrian heritage,we’re able to enrich our brand story with a modern twist. In this way, each crystal itembecomes a microcosm of our world.” – Giovanna Engelbert     As with its predecessor, Collection II is ripe with symbolism, simultaneously tellingSwarovski’s brand story whilst playing with colors, textures, and cuts to create a plethora of pieces for individual self-expression—classic, punk, sweet, striking, and every personal expression in between.     THE FAMILIES OF COLLECTION II   Collection II presents an evolution of beloved Collection I aesthetics and a burst of new ones.     New Collection II families include:   ABUNDA Architectural adornment meets the mathemagical in an expression of craftsmanship at its finest. Getting to the heart of crystal wonders, the pierced stones that define the Abunda Family are a technical marvel – truly highlighting the Swarovski’s prowess and heritage of world-class craftsmanship.   DEXTERA Crystal’s right hand, metal features intermix with precision-cut pave in uniquely unisex designs that offer every opportunity to make a statement. The Dextera Family creates space for geometric embellishment; a perfect aesthetic of mathemagical play.   IMBER Mixed metals, rich textures, and crystals that fall like rain combine, adding a softly sensory experience to any ensemble. The Imber Family is a reinterpretation of a jewelry staple – the chain – with a Swarovski twist; each piece is a delicate combination of a chain-link base with dripping crystal accents.   STELLA Like light in the dark, dreamy, and distinct star-shaped pieces play with proportion to create blindingly beautiful impact for starlets and stargazers alike. As a hero family for Collection II, Stella is directly rooted in Swarovski’s Austrian heritage –  drawing inspiration from one of the most famous pieces of jewelry ever to come out of Austria: the stars of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, called Sissi. As with the 27 stars worn by Sissi herself, the Stella Family is presented on-model in a 27-star formation. This family offers true constellations of geometry, magic, and heritage.     Evolved Collection II families include:   CHROMA Boldly layered stones in their purest chromatic expression. Like a deconstructed prism, the Chroma Family leaves everything to the imagination.   CONSTELLA Crystal constellations set on thin metal bars in spontaneous accumulations are as delicate as stardust and bring the cosmos to the everyday. In Collection II, formations get bigger, bolder, and brighter – ready to guide any style.   CURIOSA A crafting of “mathemagical” structures into unexpected shapes of divine proportion. Intricate and complex designs, Curiosa sparks the imagination in new and covetable forms.   DULCIS Challenging the sharp with the soft through a Modern Art lens, bringing full- spectrum sweetness to new and mixed materials, the Dulcis Family extends and explores new ways of wearing art – from corded chains to hair accessories.   GEMA Our widest variety of stone cuts and rich, vibrant colors all-in-one set of pieces, now in reimagined colors and silhouettes that extol the beauty of precision-cut crystal for Collection II.   HARMONIA Oversize cushion cut crystals in a suspended setting give the illusion of floating stones and bring a sense of harmonious mystery to a look of extravagance. Refined, elegant, and precious designs, Collection II debuts new color ways.   LUCENT Eye-catching full crystal cuts in vibrant gem colors are the new must-haves for the bold and playful, looking to dress up a simple outfit with a wondrous dose of extra. In its Collection II iteration, the Lucent Family, a core family for the brand, expands into new and unusual geometric forms with hundreds of precision-cut facets per piece.   MILLENIA As fundamental to the wardrobe as the white T, these bold and timeless touches of refinement are made to have and wear forever. Collection II sees a genderless evolution of the Millenia Family, with new cuts, colors, and sizes for every type of style. A core family for the brand, Millenia is a forward-focused wonder.     ORBITA Exploring versatility with double-sided elements that swivel and can be seen from all angles, the Orbita Family takes on new, vibrant colors and forms in Collection II.   SOMNIA Taking beads to dreamy new levels with a mix of precious stones and crystals in tonal ombre chain layers, the Somnia Family takes on intricate, yet effortless new forms for Collection II.     The wonders of Collection II will be revealed on across digital channels on September 7thand available in-stores and online at swarovski.com.

In conversation with Gabriele Esposito

Jewelry We had a pleasure speaking with young entrepreneur and jewelry brand owner Gabriele Esposito.        Hi, Gabriele pleasure to meet you. Could you tell our readers a little bit more about yourself?     I am Gabriele, I am 23 years old and I was born in a small town near Naples, I started at the age of 6 taking dance lessons and at 18 I participated in one of the most famous Italian talent show, from there my career began.     Could you describe how a perfect day would look like for you?      For me the perfect day is when I have so many things to do, when I'm busy I'm happy.     What’s your biggest passion?    Actually I have many passions, food, water sports, but traveling is one of the things that makes me more happy.     What or who is it that inspires you the most?   I am so inspired by the Egyptian and Roman era, the 80's and 90's, and a person who is a source of inspiration for me is Heath Ledger.       You started dancing at an early age. When did you realize or feel that this could lead to something bigger? Or did you just go with the flow?     The truth that as a child I was not even the best in my dance class indeed perhaps one of the worst, but it was something I liked a lot and luckily for me I am very stubborn, when I was 16 I participated in a competition and I won a scholarship in Canada and one in Spain.  it was there that I realized that work and sweat was worth it.     At the age of 18, you won a dancing award. Was that the ultimate kick-off of your career?      It was totally unexpected and maybe that was the best thing, my life has changed from A to Z since that day.       Is there another highlight in your career or personal life?   Working for fashion houses.  fashion which was and still is one of my greatest passions.     When do you feel most free? What makes you feel “high on life"?      When I am in love.  Loving and be loved is the greatest feeling.     Do you have a beauty routine? If yes, what is your beauty routine and what are some of your favourite skincare products?   I don't have a specific beauty routine, but I often use Honieh's moisturizer and serum.     What is the biggest lesson you have learnt in your life so far or throughout your career?    To always be brave. You don't need to be scared of changes even if you are in a comfortable position if you want to do something different you must do something to a achieve your dreams.       What's most important in life? What are your most important values?     In life I think that we have to give a lot to people, and the things we need are the simplest ones.  Sometimes we forget this.  You need to have sincere people by your side, love, give weight to words, understand situations, and this is a bit of the work I am doing on my person.     You are 23, which is still a young age, but you already have a very powerful and positive mindset. Where does that way of thinking come from?      I seem so strong but many times I'm not.  I think tho that to be positive in life is bringing success and negativity is bringing nothing good for you.     You started a jewelry brand. When and how did that happen?      I have always been a jewelry lover I have always been fascinated by it, it happened exactly one year ago when I thought there were too many things I wanted and I was missing from my collection let's say so, so I started putting down some ideas and that's how 0317 was born.       What or who inspired the designs in the collection? Is there a connection to your dance background?      I like the idea of reformulating old jewels, for example of my grandmothers and grandparents in a modern way.     Where do you see your brand in the future?     I would like to push to have a little capsule with high fine jewelry.     What do you wish for future? Is there something on your bucket list that you want to achieve in the future?     Basically I am a dreamer, I am very young and I really want to do many things, there is something I want to add but unfortunately I am too superstitious and I prefer do don’t say.     What do dancing and fashion have in common?    They are 2 arts that are constantly changing, and have many different branches, different visions, different perceptions based on the person who creates.       Do you have a mantra or motto which was always there for you or has helped you in certain situations?      If you really want something you work hard to make it happens.       You are traveling through this Summer, what are some of the highlights so far and anything exciting coming up?     I just finished a great vacation in which we were a big group and I met many different people with different personalities different energies and this makes me very happy.       Where does your jewellery brand name come from and what inspired you to name it 0 3 17?     It all happened very naturally, Are my lucky numbers.

TIFFANY & CO. INTRODUCES THE “ABOUT LOVE” CAMPAIGN STARRING BEYONCÉ AND JAY-Z

TIFFANY & CO. INTRODUCES THE “ABOUT LOVE” CAMPAIGN STARRING BEYONCÉ AND JAY-Z

Jewelry "Love is the diamond that the jewelry and art decorate.” —The Carters     Tiffany & Co. announced today that powerhouse couple Beyoncé and JAY-Z will star in its latest campaign celebrating modern love. Synonymous with the world’s greatest love stories since 1837, Tiffany’s debut of “ABOUT LOVE”marks the latest evolution of the luxury jeweler’s new creative direction. The campaign is the result of a close collaboration and a shared vision between both the Carters and Tiffany & Co.      “Beyoncé and JAY-Z are the epitome of the modern love story. As a brand that has always stood for love, strength and self-expression, we could not think of a more iconic couple that better represents Tiffany’s values. We are honored to have the Carters as a part of the Tiffany family.” —Alexandre Arnault, Executive Vice President of Product & Communications     As the first time the couple has appeared in a campaign together, “ABOUT LOVE” is an exploration of connection and vulnerability. The Carters’ love story is illuminated by the iconic Tiffany Diamond and set against the backdrop of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Equals Pi(1982).* As part of a private collection from its creation until now, this campaign marks the work of art’s first public appearance, propelling Tiffany’s long-standing tradition of working with New York creatives forward. Ushering in a new brand identity, this campaign embodies the beauty of love through time and all its diverse facets, forging a new vision of love today.      Worn in a campaign for the first time in history, the Tiffany Diamond weighs 128.54 carats and boasts an unprecedented 82 facets. Seen onBeyoncé throughout “ABOUT LOVE,” it is considered among the most important gemstone discoveries of the 19th century. Unearthed in 1877 in the Kimberley Mines of South Africa, founder Charles Lewis Tiffany purchased the rough diamond in 1878, solidifying the brand’s reputation as a diamond authority. House icons including designs from Jean Schlumberger and the Tiffany T collection are also featured throughout. Most notably, JAY-Z wears Jean Schlumberger’s legendary Bird on a Rock brooch, reconstructed as a pair of one-of-a-kind cuff links. Jean Schlumberger was best known for dressing high society’s elite in the 1960s and ’70s, so it is appropriate that his unmistakable designs live out his legacy on one of today’s greatest creative forces.      A film by acclaimed director Emmanuel Adjei has also been created and features a musical performance of the classic song “Moon River.” Made famous in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s,the iconic tune is reimagined with vocals by Beyoncé, captured by JAY-Z on a Super 8 camera. The couple selected the Orum House in Los Angeles to serve as the setting for the film, in which nostalgic flashbacks are interwoven with cinematic, dreamlike visuals. Basquiat’s Equals Pi appears once again as a common Tiffany Blue® thread throughout the narrative. The accompanying “ABOUT LOVE” print campaign was shot by Mason Poole and styled by June Ambrose and Marni Senofonte.      “ABOUT LOVE” reflects Tiffany’s continued support of underrepresented communities. As a part of the house’s partnership with the Carters, Tiffany & Co. is proud to pledge a USD $2 million commitment towards scholarship and internship programs for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Additional details on this initiative are forthcoming.      “ABOUT LOVE” launches globally in print on September 2. The accompanying film will launch on Tiffany.com September 15 and will be amplified through global media activations.The campaign will further unfold later this year with additional films created by acclaimed director Dikayl Rimmasch and second unit director, Derek Milton.

SAINT LAURENT MEN'S SPRING & SUMMER 2022

SAINT LAURENT MEN'S SPRING & SUMMER 2022

Men Green Lens is a large-scale installation by artist Doug Aitken, commissioned by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent. A living art-installation and a cultural stage, set in Venezia, Italy, where the city landscape creates a strong eco narrative within the artwork that speaks to the idea of the future world.     Located on the island of Isola Della Certosa, Green Lens is a living experiential artwork and also a destination, a place to explore, to inspire and to be inspired.     It will evoke the future through its crystalline reflective interior which reveals a kaleidoscopic view and dense botanic environment. It will be a freestanding artwork, and from the exterior, it will create a combination of reflections mixed with clouds, mist and wild green vegetation evoking a mysterious presence. Inside the sculpture there will be an enormous living kaleidoscope-like space that reflects the landscape, sky and the shifting surroundings.     This installation turns the landscape into a living abstraction.     Green Lens sparks dialogue that links the natural landscape with our future. In the 21st-century, we look toward to the future and how to harmonize with the natural environment, striving to create a new balanced world. We seek an environment where nature is empowered again, creativity is championed, and the weight of the past lifts, becoming fluid and inspiring.     In concomitance with Biennale of Architecture, the artwork will be accessible until the end of July, like a liquid architecture, creating a fully immersive environment. The idea is to encourage all visitors to look towards a positive view of the future, a synergy where natural landscape and innovation merge.     Green Lens will also be activated with a sequence of performances and conversations that are thought-provoking and inspiring, focusing on the future as interpreted by musicians, speakers and dancers. “What is the Future?” is the narrative threaded throughout the project. These activations will be filmed and released for the public to have access to a living artwork and stage for voices, creativity, culture, performance and music.     “Green Lens is a living artwork. It is both an artwork, installation and stage. It’s like a lighthouse, that one can journey to and have a very personal experience, while it also transmits light, ideas and questions. A focal point that allows all of us to share our ideas and visions for the future post Covid...a celebration and inquiry into the future.” - Doug Aitken     “Saint Laurent’s cult iconography always combined creative disciplines across art and fashion. Through those collaborations I want to merge different fields’ artistic visions in a unique artwork.” Anthony Vaccarello Green Lens is a large-scale installation by artist Doug Aitken, commissioned by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent. A living art-installation and a cultural stage, set in Venezia, Italy, where the city landscape creates a strong eco narrative within the artwork that speaks to the idea of the future world.     Located on the island of Isola Della Certosa, Green Lens is a living experiential artwork and also a destination, a place to explore, to inspire and to be inspired.     It will evoke the future through its crystalline reflective interior which reveals a kaleidoscopic view and dense botanic environment.

BRAVERY: A TRIP WITH AN EXCEPTIONAL DESTINATION

BRAVERY: A TRIP WITH AN EXCEPTIONAL DESTINATION

Jewelry Created in honour of Louis Vuitton’s bicentenary, Bravery is a High Jewellery collection inspired by a powerful heritage.     Bravery was designed in honor of Louis Vuitton's 200th birthday. The High Jewelry collection is inspired by the powerful heritage of the House. Bravery is the ultimate expression of contemporary elegance driven by expert craftsmanship. The collection celebrates the history of the House of Gems to celebrate the legendary man's 200th birthday. Bravery expresses itself in 90 iconic designs that describe Louis Vuitton's extraordinary talent and journey. Born in the Jura in 1821, Louis Vuitton was still a teenager when he decided to seek his fortune in Paris. This entire journey through France, which he made on foot, inspired him to design suitcases. Louis' suitcases were immediately popular and opened a new path to modern luxury. The Bravery Haute Joaillerie Collection describes this unique epic in eight metaphorical themes: La Constellation d'Hercule; tribute to the starry sky at the birth of Louis Vuitton, on August 4, 1821 L'Elan Vital; represents the powerful character of Louis Vuitton that led him to leave his hometown of Jura for Paris L'Aventure; tribute to the 400 kilometer journey through forests that separate the Jura from Paris Parijs The Arrow; both a metaphor for Louis Vuitton's trajectory and a literal interpretation of Vuitton's V Le Myth; Louis Vuitton is the first to sign his suitcases and patent his famous canvas covering them ze La Passion; refers to the motif of the upholstered suitcase in the luggage, also one of Francesca Amfitheatrof's signature models Le Tumbler; invented in 1890 by Louis Vuitton, the Tumbler lock or the unbreakable lock, first serves as the inspiration for a piece of Haute Joaillerie La Star du Nord; represents the metaphorical figure of the "lucky star", the light that guided Louis Vuitton throughout his life “I was surprised that a fashion house like Louis Vuitton was created through the sheer courage of one young man”, Francesca Amfitheatrof, Louis Vuitton's Artistic Director for Watches and Jewellery. ''Driven by his curiosity about the world, he embarked on that incredible journey across France. That's why we have named this collection Bravery. It's not a word often used in High Jewellery! Yet these notions of determination and adventure are intrinsic to Louis Vuitton, and we wanted to express them through this collection.”     photos by Louis Vuitton Malletier     www.louisvuitton.com   Created in honour of Louis Vuitton’s bicentenary, Bravery is a High Jewellery collection inspired by a powerful heritage.     Bravery was designed in honor of Louis Vuitton's 200th birthday.
