THE MARC O’POLO CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN 2021 LIGHTENS TRAVELING.
1898

THE MARC O’POLO CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN 2021 LIGHTENS TRAVELING.

Fashion The annual Marc O’Polo Christmas initiative is traditionally dedicated to a good cause. Christmas 2021 continues this tradition, building on all of the sustainability e orts made during the year while focusing on sustainable travel.   How we travel, and how often, has changed signi cantly and is being reshaped by two major themes: sustainability and health. The pandemic has turned the everyday into the extraordinary. Travelling is no longer a given, whether for vacations, bank holi- days or special occasions; whether to see friends and family, visit dream destinations or attend business meetings. We are rethinking travel’s meaning and increasingly asking ourselves what impact our ights, boat trips, and car and train journeys are having on our environment. We want to celebrate travel again: more sustainably and consciously. And CO2-neutral. Hence the title of this year’s Christmas capsule collection: “COMING HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS – Travel lightly: With every purchase, we are sponsoring a climate project saving 50kg of CO2.”   The finely curated Sustainable Travel Essentials collection offers everything one needs to lighten the journey during the festive season: Marc O’Polo products with sustainable standards as well as selected products created in cooperation with Native Union and Sprekenhus. For every item sold from the Christmas capsule collection, Marc O’Polo will work with ClimatePartner to support a climate project that o sets 50kg of CO2. This roughly equates to a train journey of 640km, or a car journey of around 150km, and symbolises the upcoming Christmas journey to visit friends and family.   Scandinavian and stylish. Casual and contemporary. The Sustainable Travel Essentialscollection combines all styles for the modern head-to-toe look. From outerwear to trousers to cardigans and various top styles. From bag to shoes, hat to scarf to gloves: All Marc O’Polo from the collection products bear the sustainable product label, as do all technical must-haves from Marc O’Polo and Native Union to match the collection, as well as all grooming travel companions from Marc O’Polo and Sprekenhus.   Marc O’Polo has been a partner of ClimatePartner since 2020. Together, the two have already implemented several climate protection projects. As part of its “01 Journey - 10 Pathways” sustainability strategy, Marc O’Polo has set itself the goal of becoming a climate-neutral brand by 2025.     The Sustainable Travel Essentials collection will be available in the Marc O’Polo online store and selected stores from mid-November.     The annual Marc O’Polo Christmas initiative is traditionally dedicated to a good cause.

RÉMY MARTIN PRESENTS THE CENTAUR ODYSSEY COLLECTION

Lifestyle RÉMY MARTIN MARKS THE END OF THE YEAR WITH NEW EXCLUSIVE LIMITED-EDITION CASES CELEBRATING THE ODYSSEY OF THE CENTAUR.     A SPECTACULAR GIFT THAT GRANTS ACCESS TO A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE:   To make this festive season memorable, Rémy Martin has drawn on its mythic foundations to create a stunning limited-edition case that grants access to a world of exclusive content. Each one is an invitation to follow the voyage of the Centaur, the emblematic symbol of the House, and explore the fruit of the terroir from ground to glass. An exceptional way to gift discerning and curious connoisseurs and prolong the magic of the moment.     BEHIND EVERY GIFT IS A GREAT STORY:   The story of Rémy Martin began almost 300 hundred years ago. Year after year, the precious grapes of Grande and Petite Champagne, among the two most sought-after vineyards in Cognac, give birth to the cognac eaux-de-vie. Distilled on the lees in small stills and slowly aged in the cellars, they gradually develop the richness and elegance for which the House is famous. Every step, every element, every second counts in this odyssey where terroir and time meet passion and craftsmanship – and today, they are all brought to life by the Centaur in a sumptuous new collection of Rémy Martin cases.     EVERY GREAT STORY STARTS WITH A LEGEND:   The ultimate symbol of strength, courage, creativity and wisdom, the Centaur has embodied the values of the House of Rémy Martin since its creation. Today, through these beautifully illustrated treasure troves, the mythic icon of the House invites like-minded explorers to dive into the magic of his odyssey, to follow him through his territory, from the sun-blessed vineyards of Grande and Petite Champagne to the darkness of the cellars on the estate, from the opulent flavours blending in oak barrels to one-of-a-kind tasting experiences.     THE COFFRET LEADS TO A MOUTH-WATERING DESTINATION DESIGNED TO SUIT THE BOTTLE:   The coffret brings the Centaur’s spectacular voyage to light in dazzling detail, and comes with a golden key in the form of a QR code that opens the door to fascinating content, including tasting tips, food pairings and a dedicated cocktail tutorial designed to match the product. To multiply the pleasure of giving, the QR code gives exclusive access to a shareable digital experience – the Centaur Odyssey Animated Celebration, themed to suit the cognac universe of choice and personalized with a festive animated message to plunge friends and loved ones into the Odyssey of the Centaur.     VERSATILE / ELEGANT / ICONIC:   Few pleasures surpass the gift of an iconic fully decorated Rémy Martin VSOP: a perfect harmony of powerful and elegant aromas that lends itself to the art of cocktails, showcased in a spectacular Odyssey Coffret and featuring the limited-edition Odyssey label.   Embodying the signature style and generosity of the house, each coffret comes with a QR code that grants access to a fully immersive experience where curious explorers will discover a world of tasting notes, the ultimate recipe for a Rémy Ginger cocktail and how to create the perfect food pairing: vanilla macaroon and gravlax salmon.     RÉMY MARTIN VSOP LIMITED EDITION WITH 2 VSOP COGNAC GLASSES:   Few pleasures surpass the gift of an iconic fully decorated Rémy Martin VSOP: a perfect harmony of powerful and elegant aromas that lends itself to the art of cocktails, showcased in a spectacular Odyssey gift box with two exclusive Rémy Martin VSOP cognac glasses.   Embodying the signature style and generosity of the house, each box comes with a QR code that grants access to a fully immersive experience where curious explorers will discover a world of tasting notes, the ultimate recipe for a Rémy Ginger cocktail and how to create the perfect food pairing: vanilla macaroon and gravlax salmon.   Few pleasures surpass the gift of an iconic Rémy Martin VSOP: a perfect harmony of powerful and elegant aromas that lends itself to the art of cocktails, showcased in a spectacular Odyssey gift box along with a miniature (5cl) bottle of 1738 Accord Royal.   Embodying the signature style and generosity of the house, each box comes with a QR code that grants access to a fully immersive experience where curious explorers will discover a world of tasting notes, the ultimate recipe for a Rémy Ginger cocktail and how to create the perfect food pairing: vanilla macaroon and gravlax salmon.     All three packs have a retail price of €45,- RÉMY MARTIN MARKS THE END OF THE YEAR WITH NEW EXCLUSIVE LIMITED-EDITION CASES CELEBRATING THE ODYSSEY OF THE CENTAUR.     A SPECTACULAR GIFT THAT GRANTS ACCESS TO A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE:   To make this festive season memorable, Rémy Martin has drawn on its mythic foundations to create a stunning limited-edition case that grants access to a world of exclusive content.

In conversation with Les Twins
1880

In conversation with Les Twins

Events We had a delight speaking with two incredible artists Les Twins.       When and how did you start dancing and what role does it play in your life?   The love of dance runs in our family: our roots are strong — we’re the last of 11 siblings, and when you’re from Guadeloupe, you know how to dance! Our mother was a singer and a dancer; everyone in our family has their own dance style. But in Sarcelles, being twins and dancers hasn’t always been an advantage. There are lots of reasons why we’ve never stopped moving. Our life has given us a lot, physically, to express through dance but it goes beyond movement. We have a lot to say. It’s about who we are, where we come from, and what we have become through dance.     If you had to name one life-changing event, which would it be?   When we realized that dance could take us so far. From that moment we decided to incorporate it in everything we do — video, personal style, music, staging, producing. We never do anything by halves. We both want to be the best. And thanks to a little brotherly competition and rivalry, we evolve a little more every day. Movement lets us transform emotion — everything we’ve experienced, everything we are is right there in our moves.  .   How do you express yourselves through fashion?   We wear pieces that stand out, that not everyone else is wearing. We want to express our own aesthetic with the things we wear. That’s what we tried to do with our capsule collection for Hennessy as well. It’s a real source of pride for us to be the bridge between Hennessy and fashion. We have experience in the fashion industry, so doing a Les Twins capsule collection was a perfect fit, and Hennessy really let us put it together the way we wanted.      How did the collaboration with Hennessy come to life?    Hennessy came to us with the question if we wanted to collaborate with them. Of course, we were very honored and it immediately felt good. What’s amazing to us is Hennessy’s willingness to make this collaboration so personal, representing France through two people of color whose story is two centuries removed from Hennessy’s story - and yet so similar. We had a very urban image of Hennessy because it’s been a part of our orbit ever since we started dancing: our friends order it in nightclubs, it’s part of street culture, and hip-hop especially. So it was a natural collaboration even if we don’t drink often, personally. To be masters of our art, of movement, we need to have complete control of our bodies.      There are two original limited edition bottles designed. Each bottle features a likeness of one of you. Are there any differences in your characters?   We’re identical but different in life, in our personalities, and dance. We’re like yin and yang. When we dance together, the power is incredible. Each of us is strong on our own, but together we are unique. We bring together two different dreams. We succeeded in leveling up to go wherever we want, to open doors that never would have been open to us before. Les Twins are unique, but there’s also a lot more to us — together and individually — than meets the eye.      How do you like to drink your Hennessy?   We both made our own cocktail together with Hennessy and mixologist the mixologist Clément Faure who captured our personalities and translated that into cocktails. Larry’s cocktail is called ‘CA BLAZE COCKTAIL’. It’s a fizzy cocktail with floral, spicy accents, it showcases the full-bodied of Hennessy Very Special combined with vanilla and elderflower. The cocktail of Laurent is called the ‘LIL BEAST COCKTAIL’. It’s a bit more reserved than Larry’s cocktail. The rich taste of Hennessy Very Special is complemented by notes of almond and nutmeg recalling French pastries, counterbalanced by the acidic tang of lemon juice.     What does Freedom mean to you?   Freedom to us is the ability to create. What we create is emotion, art, a street spirit. It’s like osmosis, a mix: we “dance” our life. Our movement is what makes us unique.  We had a delight speaking with two incredible artists Les Twins.       When and how did you start dancing and what role does it play in your life?   The love of dance runs in our family: our roots are strong — we’re the last of 11 siblings, and when you’re from Guadeloupe, you know how to dance!

BOWMORE® MASTERS’ SELECTION UNITES THE WORLDS OF WHISKY MAKING AND AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN

BOWMORE® MASTERS’ SELECTION UNITES THE WORLDS OF WHISKY MAKING AND AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN

Lifestyle A shared commitment to heritage, craftsmanship and innovation unites the worlds of whisky making and automotive design with the creation of Bowmore®Masters’ Selection; the first single malt whisky to be made by Bowmore® Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky in collaboration with Aston Martin.     Imagined and defined by two Masters; Bowmore Master Whisky Blender Ron Welsh and Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, Bowmore Masters’ Selection bridges two distinct worlds in a powerful, yet inspiring way. At its heart is a mutual trust and respect for one other’s worlds and a passion to discover and learn from each other. Each Master imparts their own creativity and character, but also makes an indelible mark, like leaving their own unique fingerprint, on every single creation     Marek Reichman, has often spoken about the concept of the ‘Golden Ratio’ – the mathematical ratio found in nature that creates aesthetically pleasing compositions -, which sits at the heart of the design of every Aston Martin. Absolute beauty can be created when you achieve a perfect relationship between each proportion of the car.     Reichman explains: “Proportionality defines every precise detail of designing an Aston Martin. We are constantly striving to achieve the Golden Ratio; the optimal of proportions.  And it is this force which guides the creation of absolute beauty. To achieve this, we must combine our skill, passion and experience. Coming together with Ron just brings a whole new perspective on this and is hugely inspiring and enlightening. This whisky perfectly and harmoniously brings us together to create a beautiful, yet powerful equilibrium.”     For Bowmore, proportions define character and shape flavour combinations; from cask selection and age to blending. Ron Welsh, Master Blender, Bowmore, explains, “For the first time with this whisky, we have adopted the Golden Ratio to inspire each of the elements bringing their own unique flavours and selecting the optimal casks to forge the desired character, taking inspiration from Marek and his team.  What seems totally contrasting is, in fact, perfectly balanced and proportionate. Working with Marek has given me a new lens from which to explore whisky making. This whisky serves as a celebration of our unified knowledge and experience; our shared passions, values and ideas.”      Taking inspiration from an engineered approach, this whisky incorporates the divine proportion of 61.8% formed from a base of 21 year old Bowmore matured in first fill Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. The remaining parts are made up of exact ratios of each other, in line with the Golden Ratio theory, and include exceptionally aged Bowmore matured for over 35 years.      For this single malt, a powerful and complex yet sweet warming, the creators seems, on the face, to have created absolute contrast but in reality, they have captured perfect balance and proportion. With a clear nod to Aston Martin in the very creation of this Bowmore whisky, it exudes a sophistication and complexity which is truly considered yet promises a thrilling taste experience.     Powerful yet elegant; from sweet to spice; sherry to coffee; honey to pepper – the perfect proportions to achieve absolute depth and balance.   A shared commitment to heritage, craftsmanship and innovation unites the worlds of whisky making and automotive design with the creation of Bowmore®Masters’ Selection; the first single malt whisky to be made by Bowmore® Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky in collaboration with Aston Martin.     Imagined and defined by two Masters; Bowmore Master Whisky Blender Ron Welsh and Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, Bowmore Masters’ Selection bridges two distinct worlds in a powerful, yet inspiring way.

It brings together a number of Friends of the Maison for the first time with an extraordinary cast that includes Ella Balinska, Mariacarla Boscono, Monica Bellucci, Khatia Buniatishvili, Lily Collins, Golshifteh Farahani, Mélanie Laurent, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Annabelle Wallis, Jackson Wang and Maisie Williams.     These 12 singular personalities build on each other’s creativity and energy through this joyous melody, showing how important cultural and artistic diversity is to the vitality of a Maison such as Cartier.     “It’s a part of the Cartier philosophy to believe that we are stronger and more authentic together, and that’s why we have gathered this inspiring community of artists who embrace life with a sense of celebration. Together, they seem to defy gravity through Cartier’s red box, which they have filled with a sense of joy.” – Arnaud Carrez, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer.     Directed by the young British director and fashion photographer Charlotte Wales, known for her fresh, considered and light-hearted approach, this film reflects what is important to Cartier: the belief that each person’s singularity is enriched by others’, and that these connections reinforce our talents. It is an unreserved statement of appreciation for the arts and for culture from a Maison that knows we must think outside the box, push boundaries and overcome barriers, and anything else that holds back our lives or our desire to free our hearts.   Watch the video here.   LOVE IS ALL is also a significant song choice, a pop melody composed in the 70s by Roger Glover and Ronnie James Dio. “Everybody’s got to live together”. Cartier’s film shares the universal message behind these warm and joyful lyrics as we celebrate the festive season, the most important time for coming together and celebrating family.     Cartier presents LOVE IS ALL, an unparalleled choral film, an ode to love.

LOEWE LAUNCHES THE HOLIDAY COLLECTION

LOEWE LAUNCHES THE HOLIDAY COLLECTION

Accessories The LOEWE Holiday Collection offers an electric clash of colour and craft: where bold neons meet seminal prints by British architect and designer Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857–1941).     ‘Simplicity in decoration,’ Charles Francis Annesley Voysey once said, ‘is one of the essential qualities without which no true richness is possible.’ This principle runs throughout our Holiday Collection: the most thoughtful gifts are the simple but beautiful ones.     LOEWE’s Christmas selection of playful small leather goods and accessories has something for everyone. It’s a country garden full of sweet fruit, insect and animal gifts. There are golden Anagram and Signature charms and felt grape and lemon charms too. There are felt, calfskin and brass ower branches to be given as bouquets. An AirPod case with the face of a cat, and pouches shaped like oranges, butter ies and snails; all of which can be worn on a strap like a necklace. Wallets, cardholders, phone cases and keyrings, and even a little elf-sized Amazona Nano bag.     It’s become a holiday tradition for LOEWE’s capsule collections to respond to stars from Britain’s 19th-century Arts and Crafts movement. This year, it’s C.F.A. Voysey’s patterns of owers, birds and hearts that have provided the inspiration: his famous 1898 wallpaper design ‘The Owl’ becomes an intarsia wool cardigan, a wallet, a Pocket and a Drawstring Pouch, while his Herbarium orals are embroidered on wool toile dresses, blown up to blooming massive proportions on oorlength wool coats, and printed over Hammock and Puzzle bags and Cushion totes. In juxtaposition to Voysey’s nature-inspired prints —and yet designed to be playfully mixed and matched— the collection also includes an upbeat nightlife-driven narrative that explodes in a riot of colour and texture. Electric neons and sporty colour-blocking meet sequins, lurex and uffy shearling.     Alongside the new Puzzle Hobo and a wide range of Flamenco bags, the collection will introduce the Amazona 23, a new size in the Amazona bag—a LOEWE icon that originally launched in 1975 and recently returned for FW21’s Show in the News featuring Freja Beha. Men’s bags will include the Puzzle mini bumbag, the XS Military Messenger and Round backpack.     Shot by Tyler Mitchell, the holiday campaign celebrates the festive season with a characterful cast of real friends and families captured in living room scenes. The LOEWE Holiday Collection is available from November 11th, in time for the holiday season.     #LOEWE #HolidayCollection The LOEWE Holiday Collection offers an electric clash of colour and craft: where bold neons meet seminal prints by British architect and designer Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857–1941).     ‘Simplicity in decoration,’ Charles Francis Annesley Voysey once said, ‘is one of the essential qualities without which no true richness is possible.’ This principle runs throughout our Holiday Collection: the most thoughtful gifts are the simple but beautiful ones.     LOEWE’s Christmas selection of playful small leather goods and accessories has something for everyone.
