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.

HEAVENLY GINGERLILY Celebrating 50 Years of Molton Brown

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.

ACT OF TRAVEL LAUNCHES SOLO RETREATS: TRAVEL WITH A VIRTUAL COACH

Travel “leave with intent, return with clarity”     Boutique travel company ACT OF TRAVEL, specialized in creating and designing bespoke travel experiences, launches Solo Retreats today: a local travel concept focused on self-development.     During the journey individual travellers will be staying in one of the 10 specially curated hotel properties in the Netherlands.

In conversation with Schilo van Coevorden

Food Just around the corner from the hotel in Amsterdam, is where Schilo van Coevorden has his roots. Asia, however, has his heart. As a chef, with classical French education, Schilo was very early on triggered by the exotic flavours and textures of the Far East. Using Taiko and Tunes Bar as the canvas on which he can exhibit his creativity, Schilo and his team of professionals from, among others, China and Japan, monitors authenticity putting creativity first, always. Products must be fresh, flavours can be explosive. With the intense passion of a pure artist, he determines the pace in which his team ensures a unique experience for their guests night after night. This, without a doubt, makes Taiko the restaurant for modern Asian cuisine in Amsterdam.     We had a great time speaking with Schilo about their new opening in Dubai as well as the current situation and inspirations behind their incredible dishes.     You are now opening a new Taiko in Dubai. Can you tell our readers more about the new opening?   During my time spent in Dubai previously, a Bedouin told me an old saying, “If you eat the head of the helwayoo (the best local fish), you will always return back to Dubai.” After more than twenty years, I’m excited to be returning to a city that has played such an important part in my career.”     When creating a menu, you focus on one main ingredient. What is the ingredient of this year and what makes you choose the ingredient of the year?   In this time where local is more important than ever, we found an excellent sustainable fish via Kingfish Zeeland. Dutch Yellowtail, as it was named by Kingfish Zeeland, is a delicious high-grade fish, well known by Japanese Sushi Masterchefs across Europe. It is respected for its hearty texture, luscious flavour and the outstanding farming practices that bring it to life. A fish like no other, raised from egg to plate, in the Netherlands, without the use of any antibiotics.     How are you dealing with and adapting to the current world situation? You are also doing a delivery service, can you tell us more about the menu and process of ordering?   Since October we’re doing a delivery service as well. We collaborated with the delivery partner ‘Thuis uit Eten’. This platform creates unforgettable moments right at your dinner table by delivering the best dishes in style. People can order via www.thuisuiteten.nl/taiko before 6 p.m. to enjoy their Taiko dinner the next day. Next to a four course menu, Taiko nigiri and sushi boxes we also serve Taiko Bar cocktails which you only have to shake and pour over ice.      What inspired you to become a chef? Did you always envision becoming a chef, already as a kid?   Growing up in a family that bonded over their shared love for food, Schilo van Coevorden’s career as a chef was a natural step, one that his father had, too, once dreamed of taking. “I’m doing the job my father wanted to do; in the end, he went on to be something else, but food was always very important in my family. He always wanted to be a chef but never made it himself, doing other things instead, so my parents really pushed me to succeed. They took me to all the best restaurants around the world and to the famous restaurants in France, and at an early age I went to cooking school and was groomed to be a chef.” Taking his high school teachers’ advice to pursue a career in which handwork was integral, cooking was an easy path for Schilo to follow, especially when he had spent his childhood in awe of Paul Bocuse, watching the master chef elevate homestyle recipes into haute cuisine on television. “Paul Bocuse inspired me on tv in the early eighties where he showed me my mother’s recipes in a new dimension.      Where does the name of the restaurant TAIKO come from?   In the early days while walking along the Paulus Potterstraat when the windows were open, people could hear the students practicing their drum solo's. The room where the drum lessons of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the music school after which the hotel is named, where being held, is exactly where Taiko restaurant is now located. A remarkable detail is that this fact only came to light after the name Taiko was born - which is the Japanese collective name for several percussion instruments. Just like in the past, the sounds of the drum bounce of the walls, thanks to the percussionist who plays the Taiko drum during dinner every Friday and Saturday night.     Your menu always offers a variety of incredible dishes. Which would you say are your signature dishes and also signature drinks of the restaurant?   The signature dish had always been the Daikon Salad which I created more than 20 years ago. It’s the ultimate ladies dish that looks like a complicated yet simple dish full of flavours.  With the opening of Taiko, we were right at the beginning of the Gin & Tonic hype, which afterwards conquered not only Amsterdam but the whole of the Netherlands. Now we are looking to make Japanese highballs into the new Gin & Tonic.      How do you adapt as a chef to the trend of more plant based cooking as well as being conscious about the environment?   I always cared a lot about vegetables. Four years ago I developed an all-vegan gastronomic menu, and based on the reviews, we are one of the few fine-dining establishments both locally and globally to achieve success with entirely plant-based creations. To see that guests are coming back especially for this menu makes me very happy.       Can you share with us more about the design of the restaurant and Taiko bar in Amsterdam? It is truly beautifully designed.    Top to toe, our interior has been designed by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni. Ensuring a balance between old and new, Lissoni kept the original wood floors and included black metal frames throughout the restaurant. Taiko is designed as a New York style modern Dutch restaurant.      Just around the corner from the hotel in Amsterdam, is where Schilo van Coevorden has his roots. Asia, however, has his heart.

Louis Vuitton Unveils Bespoke Perfume Service

Louis Vuitton Unveils Bespoke Perfume Service

Beauty Louis Vuitton perpetuates the Art of Personalization and launches its bespoke Haute Perfumery service with Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. A unique creation, conceived and made in Grasse.     It all started in Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s creative atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, the cradle of perfumery and leatherworking trades. Since 2012, this is where the Master Perfumer has conceived his most beautiful olfactive propositions for the House. Now, he is opening his workshop to bespoke perfumery, for unique and personalized creations made upon request, in the tradition of the special orders that have been rooted deeply in the Louis Vuitton DNA since 1854.     “I wanted to offer our clients the possibility of wearing a unique fragrance, made in my creative workshop,” explains Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. “To me, this bespoke Haute Perfumery service represents the essence of the House, because ultra personalization has always been at the heart of Louis Vuitton.”     The objective of this unique and privileged moment is to create the client’s olfactory portrait. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud inquires as to tastes, memories, and lifestyle as well as typical perfume habits. In the process, a genuine, intimate collaboration takes shape between client and Master Perfumer. After this exceptional and emotionally rich consultation, the Master Perfumer begins composing a scent and develops several formulas in his atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse. To do so, he selects from among the most exclusive raw materials he has sourced in the four corners of the globe, in order to create the fragrance trail that best corresponds to its client’s personality. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud can then calibrate each olfactory nuance down to the tiniest details to offer a resolutely made-to- measure composition.     An exceptional showcase:   It takes several months to finalize a fragrance formula. The perfume is then composed by hand at the Atelier d’Art, a new space dedicated to bespoke perfumes in the heart of Les Fontaines Parfumées. In the meantime, the trunk in which the perfume will be presented is specially crafted in Asnières, Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop and the cradle for all of its special orders. This unique and personalizable trunk holds four 100ml bottles, three 200ml bottles, a 100ml travel case, a travel spray, plus 16 refills.   A sustainable service:   As with all of the House’s perfumes, made-to-measure Haute Perfumery benefits from a refill service upon request, which is available in all Louis Vuitton stores carrying perfume fountains. Each unique formula will be forever inscribed in the Louis Vuitton archives at Les Fontaines Parfumées so that the client’s olfactory signature may be perpetuated.     Special orders: Historic savoir-faire:   Since its founding, the House has accompanied clients in their quest for rare and exceptional products and perpetuated the Art of Personalization, a tradition inscribed in the trunk-maker’s DNA since 1854. In 1859, the House opened its workshop in Asnières, just outside Paris. To this day, trunks and special orders are crafted there by highly qualified artisans for travellers the world over. The emblematic Desk-Trunk for the renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski and the Tea Service Trunk for the Maharaja of Baroda were made here. More recently, the House’s historic workshop crafted cases for transporting the world’s most prestigious sports trophies, including those for the FIFA, the French Open, and the NBA, as well as Sneaker and Vanity Trunks — contemporary versions of the cosmetic cases of the 1920s.     The special order service will be available starting in November 2020.
