This will be our first property in the United States which is a key market for our Brand and we are delighted to add the vibrant and glamorous Miami Beach to our Collection.

Zenology presents their new capsule collection

Lifestyle “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions. Immersing myself in creating the bold and new certainly excites me, but it is the comfort of iconic classics that inspired me to develop new fragrance-driven products from our treasured favorite fragrance.     The Camellia Sinensis fragrance is our iconic scent that sparked the hotel industry and many others to delve into the power of scent. So for me, it was the logical and the perfect way to start this journey. The calming and soothing notes of this fragrance soon became instantly recognizable and synonymous with ZENOLOGY. The woodiness of Black Tea, the herbaceous notes of Clary Sage, and the depth coming from the mysterious Guaiac Wood create a scent that fits all seasons and adapts to every setting.    However, during the colder months when the days are darker it adds the much-needed warmth and comfort. That's why I would like to present to you our black limited edition in our iconic Camellia Sinensis fragrance – as a diffuser, scented candle and hand & body cosmetics in 300 ml size including various gift sets in gift boxes designed to re-use.” - Jeroen Oude Sogtoen, Founder and Creative Director       ZENOLOGY presents a new limited black edition packaging in its treasured favorite Camellia Sinensis fragrance. Black tea, made from leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, will fill any space with its comforting and purifying woody steam.   smells like: Herbal tea   elements: Black Tea, Clary Sage, Guaiac Wood perfumer: Fredrik Dalman, In-House Perfumer ZENOLOGY       The collection features cosmetics duo’s in a new 300 ml (10.14 fl.oz.) format and comes in a matt-black square gift box.  ZENOLOGY is also launching new fragrance diffusers (sticks) and a scented candle as a part of the limited black edition that comes in a matt-black cylindrial gift box. “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions.

Introducing VEERT

Introducing VEERT

Lifestyle Julia Lang, Tanzanian-German branding and marketing specialist and serial entrepreneur, is launching curated collections of jewelry, home fragrance products, homegoods, and more under her new label -- VEERT. In an unprecedented period of gender upheaval, VEERT breaks with the traditional expectations of men’s and women’s categories to create products outside of traditional gendered categories and aesthetics. By removing the concept of gender, Lang creates a space in between and brings a fresh new edge with her curated collections. VEERT (@itsveert) will be launching on November 9th at itsveert.com.     "In a time when we’re being separated and isolated from each other, hope and inclusivity is needed now more than ever. We don't just want to give birth to another product.  We want to be the catalyst of empowerment, healing energy, and unity. Traditional gender separation won't exist within our products and collections. We truly believe that VEERT is meant to bring us all together. All ages, ethnicities, geographic areas, and gender identities all tied together by an undeniable longing for tastefulness and positive self-expression.”-- Julia Lang, Founder of VEERT.     Unisex jewelry collection of gold vermeil pieces inspired from a deep desire to combine elevated aesthetics with global influences, centered around healing, hope, and positive energy. Lang infused the 18 karat gold plated pieces with powerful healing stones, such as green onyx and malachite. Green onyx is associated with the heart chakra, as well as malachite that clears and activates the chakras. Both stones are an important protection stone. Malachite absorbs negative energies, picking them up from the atmosphere and from the body. The green onyx is the symbol of restfulness and purity. It helps you to move forward from all kind of sorrow, grief and depression. It improves your self-confidence. This green soothing stone has the power to relief worries, tension, stress and fears. Green Onyx is related with love, affection, and friendship. The first VEERT jewelry collection will include a VEERT malachite + green onyx signature ring, green onyx heart pearl earrings, green onyx pearl necklace and a green onyx pendant, which have already been coveted by singer Miguel, rapper NAS and others. The collection is priced from $129 - $395. Selected pieces can also be made in solid 24k gold with pricing upon request.     With the first collection of jewelry, VEERT will also be launching its first signature scent (a blend of Ambre, Bamboo, Tuberose, Pink Sugar), “SERENGETI”, with a Liquid Soap and Candle. SERENGETI Liquid Soap and Candle were carefully created with sustainability and an elevated, immersive experience in mind. The VEERT Candle is made with innovative clean-burning, food-grade-certified coconut oil, one of the first products to market with this sustainable wax alternative that’s designed to burn true, releasing natural perfume without distortion, without ever collecting soot. The brand’s Liquid Hand Soap was developed for a rejuvenating, yet novel feel, using the cleanest ingredients possible to not only leave hands feeling clean and soft, but pure and protected.     The VEERT home fragrance collection features a Baldessari inspired three-dot design on the packaging to signify sustainability. VEERT has officially partnered with 1% For the Planet, committing 1% of yearly gross sales to the certified charity that helps our world. The brand is committed to working only with FSC certified vendors and using 85% post-consumer waste boxes and 100% recyclable paper for its packaging.     Featured in outlets like Vogue, Hypebeast’s “Business of Hype” podcast, i-D and many more, Lang has a history of working with legendary figures in fashion, entertainment, music, art, and sports, smartly molding brand identities, opening doors, curating images, and helping clients monetize their marketing investments. Adding brand founder to her ever-growing job description, Julia Lang is launching the VEERT brand as a platform to tell her own stories, express her creative vision, and bring a distinctive, multisensory lifestyle to life with premium products across various categories. VEERT, a play on the French word “vert” (a translation of the color “green”), reflects Lang’s personal connection with the color and what it’s inspired for her. Green has longtime been the color that makes her feel the strongest, the most beautiful, the most vibrant -- an experience she wants to share with everyone who touches her brand.

GUCCI PRESENTS GUCCIFEST ONLINE 16 - 22 NOVEMBER OUVERTURE OF SOMETHING THAT NEVER ENDED

Fashion Which new horizons do arise when fashion leaves its comfort zone? What life do clothes get when they stop walking down the catwalk? What kind of stories can they draw in the space of existence? What happens to them when the runway spotlights fade out? These are the questions that come to my mind in a present that is uncertain, but pregnant with premonitions. Precious and crucial questions, urging me to reframe the creative horizons of my work and to reconfigure the meaning of my doing. Above all, they push me towards a radical experimentation able to pursue new languages and uncommon expressive platforms.     Following this impetus, I decided to make an episodic film. It was a reckless leap for me, though necessary. Because I needed a vehicle to inject myself into life, to depict it from the inside. A life that apparently flows in a trivial way but, unfolding, it reveals unexpected epiphanies. A stream of tiny accidental events and delicate relations that challenge the sense-making and give shape to our being. A constellation of details where the infinitely small, the shy eyes that lower, the unsaid word and the swish of a dress dance together to be saved.     To get into this life, to succeed in telling it through and through, I needed a magnifying glass to extol its movements and silences. I needed an extreme narrative dilation to sing everydayness and its magic footprints. I also needed a suspended time to spy on its flow. The idea of different episodes fitted my needs: windows from which I could look over the never drowsy miracle of our breaths.     To create a more accurate observation, I looked and longed for a travel companion, Gus. We chose each other for the affinity of our gaze, for the care we both take in creating inclusive narrations. What I love about Gus is his rebel and brazen attitude, his ability to portray the road and the side, his transversal visionaries and his delicacy. Together we tried to write an ode to that mysterious organism that life is: a sacred enigma that connects the impalpable with the visible, a trembling becoming made of a little nothing that rages.     To stick to the web of fortuities that pollinate this trembling becoming, we decided to take a further risk. We tried to dissolve the rhetorical illusion that each story is necessarily made of a signifying and oriented sequence of events. In our film, there is no story which is anchored to a readable direction. The plot is just an accident that breaks the linear and progressive character of time. It’s the overture of something that never ended.     Little events, considered ordinary and common, blend together and give the opportunity to awaken a world of interpretative possibilities for those who observe. Little wild detonations of sense. In this respect, the film does not want to assert. There is no proclamation. No declaration. But evocation instead. There is no such thing as an ultimate and final meaning, because that would end up in reducing the sensible to the intelligible. It would mean to betray that marvelous and endless overabundance of sense that we all carry along with us. After all, that is where the enchantment of life lies: in the infinite variety of its possibilities.     Alessandro Which new horizons do arise when fashion leaves its comfort zone? What life do clothes get when they stop walking down the catwalk? What kind of stories can they draw in the space of existence? What happens to them when the runway spotlights fade out? These are the questions that come to my mind in a present that is uncertain, but pregnant with premonitions.

Above all, they push me towards a radical experimentation able to pursue new languages and uncommon expressive platforms.     Following this impetus, I decided to make an episodic film. It was a reckless leap for me, though necessary. Because I needed a vehicle to inject myself into life, to depict it from the inside. A life that apparently flows in a trivial way but, unfolding, it reveals unexpected epiphanies. A stream of tiny accidental events and delicate relations that challenge the sense-making and give shape to our being. A constellation of details where the infinitely small, the shy eyes that lower, the unsaid word and the swish of a dress dance together to be saved.     To get into this life, to succeed in telling it through and through, I needed a magnifying glass to extol its movements and silences. I needed an extreme narrative dilation to sing everydayness and its magic footprints. I also needed a suspended time to spy on its flow. The idea of different episodes fitted my needs: windows from which I could look over the never drowsy miracle of our breaths.     To create a more accurate observation, I looked and longed for a travel companion, Gus. We chose each other for the affinity of our gaze, for the care we both take in creating inclusive narrations. What I love about Gus is his rebel and brazen attitude, his ability to portray the road and the side, his transversal visionaries and his delicacy. Together we tried to write an ode to that mysterious organism that life is: a sacred enigma that connects the impalpable with the visible, a trembling becoming made of a little nothing that rages.     To stick to the web of fortuities that pollinate this trembling becoming, we decided to take a further risk. We tried to dissolve the rhetorical illusion that each story is necessarily made of a signifying and oriented sequence of events. In our film, there is no story which is anchored to a readable direction. The plot is just an accident that breaks the linear and progressive character of time. It’s the overture of something that never ended.     Little events, considered ordinary and common, blend together and give the opportunity to awaken a world of interpretative possibilities for those who observe. Little wild detonations of sense. In this respect, the film does not want to assert. There is no proclamation. No declaration. But evocation instead. There is no such thing as an ultimate and final meaning, because that would end up in reducing the sensible to the intelligible. It would mean to betray that marvelous and endless overabundance of sense that we all carry along with us. After all, that is where the enchantment of life lies: in the infinite variety of its possibilities.     Alessandro

Yannis Sergakis presents his new collection

Jewelry You may see this girl walking in the Parisian lighted alleys or strolling barefoot on one of the Greek islands known for its hues of blue. She’s merging in a 70’s setting, showing off her elegance, revealed by her simplicity. Not imposing her style, but wearing it in the most nuanced and subtle way. A touch of black here, a touch of white there, exhibiting her very own and unique version of modernity.   Diamonds that work for every day. Delicate, elegant, ethereal, designed to be worn, instead of over-shadowing the one wearing them. Pieces that de ne the concept of discreet luxury and intriguing simplicity; craftsmanship defined by pace and dedication. Each piece is introduced in its own time; when it is perfect and ready to leave the workshop. Inspiration is drawn from beautiful moments, a book, a stroll, a sweet night, conversations with friends, laughs, the sparkleof a Cycladic wine, islands, emotions. The challenge is how the two eternal symbols, gold and diamonds, can create a design that best captures these emotions every time.     About Yannis Sergakis:   Born literally into precious stones - the lifelong Athenian spent his childhood in the showroom of his diamond trader uncles – Yannis still relishesseeing diamonds sparkle every day. A love affair first expressed through collecting and trading, much laterthrough designing. Having gone through a full diamond circle, he shifted to launch his own brand, evolving ideas that grew from his background and Greece’s notable heritage in jewellery-making, yet driven by his ability to create pieces with both a sense of past craftsmanship and a contemporary energy.     A testament to his impact is the popularity of the house’s signature Charnières, an early reveal of his point of view in wearable ne jewellery design. A buy-less advocate, Yannis truly wishes for people to take the time to appreciate and enjoy each single piece that comes into theirhands.

FENDI Lays the Foundation Stone of FENDI Factory

Culture FENDI lays the foundation stone of FENDI Factory, its new pole of excellence located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside in Bagno a Ripoli, close to Florence, highlighting the Maison’s continuous commitment towards environmental sustainability and social responsibility.     To mark the importance of this milestone for the Roman luxury house, Serge Brunschwig, Chairman and CEO, planted a tree on the construction site: a Turkey oak, a symbol across different cultures of virtus, dignity and courage. In particular, the Turkey oak tree plays a key role in the Fendi Factory project, celebrating the local biodiversity of the area.     Covering a land surface of 8 hectares, FENDI Factory, which has been designed by Milan-based architecture firm Piuarch, will occupy a 13,000-square-meter area formerly housing the Fornace Brunelleschi kiln. FENDI kicked off the works in the area in August 2018 to clear and prepare the construction site.     “Italy is synonymous with tradition, history, beauty and above all excellence. We embrace the opportunity to invest in the Made in Italy and to sublimate the core values of craftsmanship, artisanal savoir-faire and the power of handcrafting. Expertise and experimentation are all elements that support our marketing and company culture and at FENDI we believe that keeping and transmitting this level of tradition is fundamental for the coming generations. We are very proud of our roots, of this new chapter in Bagno a Ripoli, offering our teams a sustainable and caring working environment, “states Serge Brunschwig, FENDI Chairman and CEO.     Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, FENDI Factory will feature a series of buildings connected with squares and stairs that, located at different levels, will be harmoniously integrated into the natural conformation of the Tuscan hillside. With plenty of sunlight filtering through the large glass walls, the functional and efficient manufacturing plant will offer a healthy workplace, where artisans will be able to express their skills and creativity at their best. Designed to guarantee unparalleled efficiency, FENDI’s new plant, including a range of manufacturing areas, offices and warehouses, will feature rational spaces enabling an easy circulation of people and goods.   “The start of the works of the new FENDI Factory production facility in Bagno a Ripoli witnesses the importance of the development agreements promoted by the MiSE, which aims at supporting our companies in the process of technological transformation, while protecting both the skills of our workers and the reconversion of existing plants in the territories in which they are located”, states the Minister of Economic Development, Stefano Patuanelli. “Encouraging investments in training, research and development is in fact one of the pillars – adds Patuanelli – of the strategy that the MiSE is carrying out, also through the 4.0 Transition plan. Historic fashion brands like FENDI represent Italian excellence in the world. The contribution of this sector to economic growth and to the presence of Italy in international markets is strategic, just as it is fundamental to support the authenticity and craftsmanship of their productions. The challenge for our productive fabric is to combine Made in Italy with innovation, technology with digitalization, skilfully merging the old and the new know-how, ancient manual skills and 4.0 training, always with an attentive eye to environmental sustainability”, concludes the Minister.   “Our bond with FENDI is strong and rooted and we are proud to have co-financed the national program that today consolidates a historic brand, relaunches growth prospects and gives us the reconversion of an historical industrial site like the former Fornace Brunelleschi," declares Eugenio Giani, President of the Toscana region. “We are proud –of the development agreement that unblocked the Mise resources, focused on leather goods and on the use of innovative technologies, and that opens a season of new employment with the prospect of doubling jobs.”   “FENDI’s new site represents a news of absolute impact for the Metropolitan City of Florence and beyond, because it combines the recovery of the former Fornace Brunelleschi and the spaces of the area with technological and employment development, doubling, as a matter of fact, the number of employees. It is a great project that, on the other hand, finds support and further increase in expectation precisely because it can pride of operating in the ‘Greater Florance’”, says Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence.     “The start of the construction works of the new FENDI facility at Capannuccia is, today, a wave of hope for the future in such a complex moment,” asserts Francesco Casini, Mayor of Bagno a Ripoli. “It’s a new demonstration of how Bagno a Ripoli is a territory of opportunities for those who want to realize quality investments and of how in Florence and Tuscany one can do, and do well, with rapid and definite times, a virtuous collaboration between private and public sectors. Once again, with this intervention, the road to sustainable development is taken, allowing one of the leading groups in the fashion industry to have a new production plant immersed in the beauty of Chianti, looking to Florence, with a remarkable and very important impact on the economy and employment of the entire Tuscan and Florentine territory. And all of this without consuming a new soil, yet recovering an abandoned, degraded and squatted industrial site, that for a long time has represented an environmental emergency, thus transforming a critical problem into an extraordinary opportunity.”   In keeping with the Roman luxury house’s continuous commitment towards sustainability, FENDI Factory has complied so as to aiming at the prestigious LEED Platinum certification. Both the perimeter and interior walls will be made of glass, enabling the sunlight to filter and offering employees serene views of the Tuscan countryside and of the impeccably designed courtyards presenting local varieties of plants and flowers. Enabling the new FENDI site to blend in with the environment, the external walls of the different building will match glass with a natural mix of soil and concrete in a signature earthy tone reflecting the color shades of the Tuscan hillside and celebrating the ancient tradition of the site.   In addition, FENDI has created a public park in the same area, opposite the kindergarten, featuring playgrounds, wide benches and following the same approach of biodiversity of the FENDI Factory landscape, with native plant species and some areas dedicated to the growth of plants to have as natural an effect as possible.     FENDI Factory is set to inaugurate in 2022.

Kinfill launches limited edition tray in collaboration with Studio Sabine Marcelis

Kinfill launches limited edition tray in collaboration with Studio Sabine Marcelis

Lifestyle The sustainable Dutch homecare brand Kinfill is partnering with Sabine Marcelis for an exclusive collaboration. Using largely remnant materials, Sabine Marcelis developed a limited edition tray for the presentation of Kinfill’s glass bottles. The tray is being produced in a hand-numbered run of 100 copies. The tray costs 295 euros and will be available for purchase starting November 19th via Kinfill.com and Graanmarkt13.   Shared philosophy: design and sustainability go hand in hand:   Reda Jouahri, founder of Kinfill, and Sabine Marcelis share not only their hometown of Rotterdam, which is also home to both their workshops, they also share their vision of design and sustainability. Existing resin panels are reused in the production process for the trays. That fits perfectly within the shared philosophy of Kinfill and Sabine Marcelis: minimizing waste. Ironically, the cleaning industry is a dirty business. In general, cleaning products are 90% water and are packaged in plastic bottles. Kinfill is the first green, Dutch homecare brand that offers cleaning products in a concentrated form that are diluted at home with water in glass bottles that can be reused. Owner Reda Jouahri is taking the lead with Kinfill in the reduction of the footprint of an entire industry. The collection consists of a range of vegan, cruelty-free and biodegradable homecare products, packaged in glass and cleverly designed cardboard boxes. Since the launch of the brand in early 2020, customers have already eliminated the use of nearly 20,000 plastic bottles.   Sabine Marcelis: 'Warm hues of resin are broken into fragments and re-cast into a singular surface from which the trays are created. A new, surprising materiality is revealed with different levels of transparency and colour-intensity within the fragments. The trays define a space where the Kinfill bottles can live; an artful storage and display space'.   The tray is not only a beautiful item, it is also a functional one with which the Kinfill products can be given a more visible place in the home. Reda Jouahri, founder of Kinfill: ’I wanted to create something to improve the cleaning experience even more, a unique item with which users can present their Kinfill bottles in a prominent place in their homes. That is something that would never be conceivable with old-fashioned cleaning products. I wanted the design to be aesthetically refined, and its production had to fit into our vision of sustainability. I immediately loved Sabine’s idea of creating the trays largely from remnant materials, thus giving each of them a unique appearance.’ The sustainable Dutch homecare brand Kinfill is partnering with Sabine Marcelis for an exclusive collaboration.

Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women

Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women

On the Playlist Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women to rethink their position and power in the world. In 2012 Anna van den Bogert founded Artipoppe, a Dutch babywearing brand. What started with a single baby carrier turned into much more. Not just a rapidly growing international business, but a way to connect with mothers worldwide and to give voice to an ongoing movement about how to create more space for mothers, for women, in today’s society. This is such a vast subject that Van den Bogert decided to create a podcast around it. In this series many inspirational thinkers are being interviewed about motherhood in general, but also about health, spirituality, fashion, social justice and how to save our planet for the future of our children. Our guests: co-founder of plant-based food program Sakara Life Danielle Duboise, member of the European parliament Samira Rafaela, healer Mama Medicine (Deborah Hanekamp), indigenous rights activist Nina Gualinga, food writer and entrepreneur Ella Mills (Deliciously Ella), birth doula Carson Meyer and many more.       In the first episode Van den Bogert will explain in detail what ‘The New Motherhood’ means to her. This is a term, a philosophy that Artipoppe’s founder has briefly touched on in interviews and on social media. In a nutshell, she believes that in our current patriarchal societies feminine energy and motherhood can oftentimes be smothered. Van den Bogert wants to make way for a world in which the mother, creator of all life, and families take center stage. Moving into a world, a future reality, that’s more about community, lifting each other up and really being connected. This extends to us being more connected to nature and therefore our human nature, listening to our instincts as people and parents.    Technically this would mean that mother and child, parent and child feel truly welcomed in all arenas of society. Whether taking a Zoom call, giving a lecture or attending a meeting with your baby in tow. New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern, who brought her child along in the first months after giving birth, is a huge inspiration to Van den Bogert. She would like to encourage women to trust themselves, trust their intuition, and to claim their space in society. Yet for that to unfold it should also become the status quo to see parent and child together anywhere in public. Also, when mothers bring a baby to a social gathering or breastfeed in public – without having to experience any social anxiety or fear of judgement. That’s where Van den Bogert would like to see a shift in consciousness. So mothers can feel empowered to walk their own path, to deeply connect to their babies and to express themselves for all that they are; a mother, a woman and so much more.    The New Motherhood is a holistic approach to motherhood and humanity as a whole. Motherhood touches all of our lives. So, in a way Artipoppe doesn’t just speak to mothers, fathers, but to everyone out there. It’s only together that we can achieve a brighter future with sustainability, inclusivity, connection and love as the norm.      Artipoppe’s products are made in Europe and delivered to over 70 countries worldwide. The brand is loved and worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Jude Law, Shay Mitchell and many more. The Artipoppe Podcast will be out on December 2nd, hosted by freelance journalist Kaira van Wijk.
