ON SAINT VALENTINE’S DAY: ACQUA DI PARMA A GIFT IS AN ART FULL OF LOVE

Beauty A sentiment that is blossoming, a deep and well-established af nity, a fresh alchemy. Every love story is unique and special. It’s a joy to celebrate it on Saint Valentine’s Day together with Acqua di Parma, with a gift that relates in every detail the brightest Italian style. A sincere gift and the excitement of preparing it with care.     The rst step is to choose the fragrance that most re ects the beloved, their tastes, and their unique nature. The different shades of male elegance with the Colonie for him in the 100 or 180ml format. Colonia, Colonia Futura, Colonia Pura, Colonia Essenza, Colonia Intensa and Colonia Club. The glamour of Le Nobili for her. Three unforgettable Eau de Parfum, Rosa Nobile, Peonia Nobile and Magnolia Nobile, in the 100ml format. Each one dedicated to a magni cent ower to extol femininity in its in nite facets.     Then comes the packaging; a box identi ed in all its parts in the bright Parma yellow, together with the black and white, according to the Maison’s visual codes. The unmistakable cylindrical box which contains the bottle is completely wrapped in an exclusive graphic design for this occasion. Fresh and light, a line naturally traces little hearts and, as if written by hand, the words “With love”. The same original motif returns on the tag, to be associated with unfailing shopping, complete with the band in black, white or yellow.     Colours and conical shapes for a gift that will be recognised immediately by the person who receives it, with all the radiant freshness of the Acqua di Parma Italian style. Togive an even more personal note, the top and bottle of the fragrance can be personalised with a beautiful, hand-made etching. The initials, a phrase, a name etched while you wait by a craftsman working carefully with hands protected by white gloves.     An Acqua di Parma gift, on Saint Valentine’s day and on all other occasions, is also a gesture of love for nature. The Maison, in line with the Acqua di Parma Futura sustainability plan, chooses environmentally-friendly materials. Highly- prized FSC certi ed cardboard for the cylindrical box and for the tag and recyclable glass for the bottles. The bands are made of TencelTM, a compostable and biodegradable fabric which is environmentally-friendly and made of beech and eucalyptus bre.

Studio HENK launches the Oblique Cabinet, a new modular wall cabinet

Design The Dutch interior brand Studio HENK starts the new year with a fresh, new design: the Oblique Cabinet. The new wall cabinet is, like many designs by Studio HENK, minimalist in design and special at the same time because of its original details.      The Oblique Cabinet by Studio HENK is characterized by round, organic shapes that are reflected throughout the design. For example, not only the shelves of the cabinet are oval in shape, but the steel frame also has a round finish, which provides an elegant and contemporary look.      The new cabinet is very functional because it’s completely modular. Customers can compose their own wall cabinet according to their own wishes in height, color and material - the furniture is available in five different wood finishes. The Oblique Cabinet has an open system, but closed elements can also be added to the wall cabinet if desired.      A sustainable choice:     “The Oblique Cabinet is a new variant of the Modular Cabinet, but a bit friendlier and more elegant due to its organic design,” Xander Albers, Creative Director of Studio HENK explains about the new design. "But just like its predecessor, this cabinet fits into almost any interior, especially because the various options in terms of modularity are endless." Like many Studio HENK furniture, the Oblique Cabinet is made of sustainable FSC-certified wood and is produced in Europe. This makes the Oblique Cabinet, just like other Studio HENK items, a more sustainable choice.         The Oblique Cabinet is available via the webshop, in the flagship stores and more than 50 sales points of Studio HENK. The price of the Oblique Cabinet starts from € 1180,-.    The Dutch interior brand Studio HENK starts the new year with a fresh, new design: the Oblique Cabinet.

LE LIFT LOTION BY CHANEL

LE LIFT LOTION BY CHANEL

Beauty Lotions are the prelude to every beauty ritual and are fundamental for radiant skin. As a complementary and now essential bonus, they nalize cleansing and prepare the skin to receive the next products. LE LIFT Lotion delivers targeted anti-aging action. The secret: botanical alfalfa concentrate, a smoothing and rming active ingredient, combined with a magnetic water complex developed by CHANEL Research, which delivers bene cial hydration deep within the skin. Bringing together e cacy and extreme comfort, LE LIFT Lotion was specially reformulated to o er a combination of high-performance, natural ingredients and a sensorial experience.     MAGNETIC WATER COMPLEX:   Based on its extensive understanding of the skin and its formulation expertise, CHANEL Research created a magnetic water complex composed of skin-mimetic elements with the power to structure water in concentric layers, which increases its a nity and availability within the skin. Like a magnet, it helps attract, bind, and retain water molecules for intense, long-lasting epidermal hydration.     BOTANICAL ALFAIFA CONCENTRATE:   For the LE LIFT range, CHANEL selected a plant grown in France that is rich in minerals, trace elements, vitamins and amino acids: alfalfa. A green biotech- nological process is used to extract a high-performance, smoothing and rming active ingredient from its seeds. Gentle on the skin, its action is similar to that of retinol, a key ingredient against skin aging.* It stimulates the production of type I collagen and reactivates the cellular proliferation of keratinocytes, all while encouraging epidermal di erentiation.*       SMOOTH, FIRM, HYDRATED AND PLUMP SKIN:   LE LIFT Lotion preserves the skin’s balance for radiant beauty. In a nity with the skin, it has a new, denser, jelly-like texture that transforms into a water on application. It absorbs instantly and leaves skin with a pleasant feeling of comfort (+23%**). The tensing e ect is immediate (+17%**). Skin texture is re ned and pores are less visible (-13%****). Skin appears plumped (+14%**) and stays hydrated for 8 hours.*** Smoother and rmer, it is better prepared to face daily aggressors. The complexion glows with luminosity (+17%**).         THE PLUMPING APPLICATION TECHNIQUE:   As a rst beauty step, apply LE LIFT Lotion morning and evening with the ngertips or a cotton pad, smoothing from the center of the face outward and over the neck after carefully cleansing and removing makeup. For even better results, gently pinch the skin along the nasolabial folds, the forehead line, and on the cheeks with the thumb and index nger. Repeat 3 times. Follow with the other products from the LE LIFT range: Crème Yeux, Sérum, Crème or Crème de Nuit. Lotions are the prelude to every beauty ritual and are fundamental for radiant skin.

In conversation with James Yates

Lifestyle We had a pleasure speaking with James Yates, who just launched his new app Y-17.      Tell us about your newly launched app Y-17?   Y-17 is an on demand, follow along workout for all fitness abilities. It is HIIT style training, using primarily bodyweight that encourages people to keep moving, following the class which I take and participate in whilst encouraging the participants. Each class caters to people of all fitness abilities and I give instruction at the start as to how to make it easier or harder depending on your fitness levels.  On top of this, each person gets an individualised plan, which is created based on their goals along with recipes to follow if they need some inspo. There will be a weekly mental health message sent out along with a mental health page and down the line a nutrition page with advice from experts.  The higher levels subscription will also have access to a direct chat to me here I can respond to them, and even with personal video responses.  Live classes and yoga classes will be available to sign up also.      What have been some of your highlights of this year, looking back and what are you most looking forward to in 2021?   Highlights of the year for 2020… hmmm. I actually feel fairly fortunate that this year has presented a lot of opportunity to me. Work wise I have worked with some huge brands, and feel I have progressed so that is a nice takeaway from 2020. Shooting for Armani in Milan was great and the team was amazing. I also created an app from nothing, which was a cool experience for me. It has been incredible to see how many people are already joining in the classes and the feedback have got has been wonderful that has been brilliant for me personally. I love the fact I am able to help people keeping healthy even in all these lockdowns. Personally, I also have progressed mentally and find myself in a much better position this year. I feel I have grown up and matured and understand myself better and what I need for myself toby in the best position possible. It is nice to have come through a year like we have all had and have that understanding.        What made you decide and inspired you to launch an app?    I had a couple books come out a few years ago now that were really successful and I wanted to build on that and help people with a more visual tool. I did live workouts on instagram initially to help people during lockdown.  And then with the lockdowns and gyms closing I thought that it was as good a time as any. So I started filming my workouts and offering encouragement through them to give people the motivation and guidance for them to workout. I wanted the app to feel personal so I added a chat feature where they can message me and can reply directly to them with video messages to answer any questions and make them feel like we are working out together and a part of a community.     What is the biggest lesson you have learnt this year?    I have learned a couple things this year. 1st is patience. I am terrible at being patient, and in year like 2020 its been vitally important to be that, and appreciate where you are and what you have already. Also, I have learned how people are amazing when they feel sense of community and can buy into something together. I have seen this in local communities response to the pandemic, people helping the aged, nurses, those in need, but also within my training app, where people are encouraging, love that feel of togetherness training and personally think that community interaction is something that is wonderful to be a part of.      How important is in your own words mental and physical strength?    Strength to me is vital, both mentally and physically, but I often think it is misinterpreted. A lot of times what people, and I include myself in this, perceive things to maybe be weakness but actually they are quite often the strongest of actions. Being able to admit you’re struggling or something is actually as strong as it gets, or asking for help. I think this year we have seen how strong people can be mentally when tested, but again, when we’ve struggled we have come through. The pandemic has also shown how vital physical fitness is, with those most healthy being almost completely unaffected other than in some rare circumstances. People are incredible, and in a year when we have had so much thrown at us, I think we have on the most part, faced it up and dealt with it.

VERSACE POUR FEMME: DYLAN BLUE

Beauty "Dylan Blue pour femme is a tribute to femininity. It is a strong, sensuous, refined fragrance created for a woman who knows the power of her sensuality and mind." - Donatella Versace       The Versace pour femme Dylan Blue bottle is the expression of innovative design. Its elegant curves bring to mind an amphora, evoking Greek culture and mythology. The colour of the bottle and packaging is as intense as the Mediterranean Sea: strong, deep and mysterious. Gold details and the iconic Medusa - a bridge between past and present – embellish its precious content.   Uniqueness. Strength. Sensuality and Elegance. An alchemy of irresistible notes that dance, arouse, come together and embrace. Uniqueness. A refreshing blackcurrant sorbet and Granny Smith apple create an unusual fruity accord. Strength. In this contemporary floral bouquet, flowers transform in an icy infusion of imaginary wild blooms with an unforgettable sillage. Sensuality and Elegance. Woody base notes playfully mix together to create a unique elixir: styrax and white woods polished by water, musk and patchouli coeur blend in a captivating, sensuous, vibrant movement.     The Dylan Blue pour Femme communication campaign transports viewers into the idyllic world of Versace. Using fluid and innovative camera movements to define the sense of gravity, we are drawn into timeless situations where the blue of the sea meets the colourful world of Versace. Circular movements reveal the protagonist, Bella Hadid, on a beautiful beach, switching from group situations with secondary characters to intimate, sensual moments in and out of the water. A glamorous, sensual and light narrative and aesthetic that turn the familiar into the new, the ordinary into the extraordinary and the beach into a Versace world.     TEAM CREDITS: Film director – Gordon Von Steiner Photographer – Harley Weir Art director – KevinTekinel Stylist – Jacob K Hair stylist – Syd Hayes Make up artist – Isamaya Ffrench Models – Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Louis Baines     "Dylan Blue pour femme is a tribute to femininity. It is a strong, sensuous, refined fragrance created for a woman who knows the power of her sensuality and mind." - Donatella Versace       The Versace pour femme Dylan Blue bottle is the expression of innovative design.

HEAVENLY GINGERLILY Celebrating 50 Years of Molton Brown

Beauty We’re deeply proud to be celebrating 50 years of Molton Brown, which has inspired us to revisit our roots, and spotlight one of our iconic fragrances.     Heavenly Gingerlily is one of our earliest and most beloved collections, created in the most individual way; we’ve always believed in championing our perfumers’ unique expressions and nurturing their creativity. This bewitching, white-floral scent was a personal project of Master Perfumer Jacques Chabert – the perfumer we’ve had the longest standing friendship with over the years – making this, our 50th year, a meaningful time to pay homage to his original creation.     The idea for Heavenly Gingerlily blossomed when Jacques visited a botanical garden and discovered an exceptional type of ginger flower. Captivated by its heady, floral quality, he combined it with aquatic notes; in doing so, he put his own twist on the ‘90s marine perfumery trend. The result was a sensual fragrance veiled with warm, spicy tones and tropical wanderlust. Jacques initially named it ‘Gingerlily’, and we stayed true to his vision when we launched the collection that remains cherished to this day. We added ‘Heavenly’ because this is exactly the way the fragrance makes you feel.     I love to create fragrances that transcend trends. Heavenly Gingerlily captures that at its very essence. Its delicate yet sensuous floral signature is artfully tinged with piquant cardamom. It’s graceful and exudes an expressive aura through its flower-rich heart.” Jacques Chabert, Master Perfumer We’re deeply proud to be celebrating 50 years of Molton Brown, which has inspired us to revisit our roots, and spotlight one of our iconic fragrances.     Heavenly Gingerlily is one of our earliest and most beloved collections, created in the most individual way; we’ve always believed in championing our perfumers’ unique expressions and nurturing their creativity.

The result was a sensual fragrance veiled with warm, spicy tones and tropical wanderlust. Jacques initially named it ‘Gingerlily’, and we stayed true to his vision when we launched the collection that remains cherished to this day. We added ‘Heavenly’ because this is exactly the way the fragrance makes you feel.     I love to create fragrances that transcend trends. Heavenly Gingerlily captures that at its very essence. Its delicate yet sensuous floral signature is artfully tinged with piquant cardamom. It’s graceful and exudes an expressive aura through its flower-rich heart.” Jacques Chabert, Master Perfumer

Kinfill launches room spray in collaboration with Supernova Hotel in Rotterdam

Lifestyle The sustainable Dutch homecare brand Kinfill and the Rotterdam hotel Supernova have announced a special collaboration. Kinfill is releasing a room spray in collaboration with the popular hotel, available in the well-known Kinfill 'Forever Bottle’, made from glass. The 500ml room spray costs € 45.00 and can be purchased exclusively from December 11 via Kinfill.com and at Supernova Hotel. In line with Kinfill's mission to reduce the amount of packaging waste from our daily routines, the glass bottle can be refilled in the Superette, the hotel's shop. A refill costs € 27.50.     Collaboration of young Rotterdam entrepreneurs:   The collaboration fits perfectly within one of Supernova Hotel’s goals, to set up collaborations with local young entrepreneurs. Glenn Severin, co-founder of Supernova Hotel, which won the 2019 Entrance Award for Best Hotel Design, had long wanted to develop a room spray for the hotel and approached fellow Rotterdam-based entrepreneur Reda Jouahri of Kinfill. For Kinfill, the room spray is a logical extension of the existing product line with cleaning extracts, which are available in various scents. The room spray: sandalwood, leather and smoke The scent of the room spray has sandalwood, leather and smoke as its main notes, and is used in all public areas of the hotel. Smells are perceived in the brain in exactly the same place where emotions are stored, hence the strong link between the two. This room spray will serve as the perfect souvenir to relive a trip to the Supernova Hotel. Completely in line with Kinfill's sustainability philosophy, there is the option to refill the Forever Bottle at Supernova. When purchasing the room spray you will also receive a voucher with a discount on an overnight stay in the hotel.     The sustainable Dutch homecare brand Kinfill and the Rotterdam hotel Supernova have announced a special collaboration.
