FENDI launches the Summer 2021 Capsule featuring FF Vertigo collaboration with Sarah Coleman

Accessories Happy, colorful, irresistible… FENDI celebrates the summer season with a dedicated capsule collection injected with a joyful, uplifting mood. Dominated by yellow and light blue tones, the Summer 2021 capsule, spans from sophisticated and eye-catching bags and accessories to compelling ready-to-wear for women, men and children.      Seventies’ references and Nineties’ vibes fuse in a charming line-up, where FENDI’s outstanding craftsmanship and innovative, forward-thinking approach shine bright.      As part of its Summer 2021 capsule, after the official launch at Design Miami, FENDI reiterates its collaboration with New York-based visual artist Sarah Coleman, known for her disruptive manipulation of designers’ materials that she employees to rethink and repurpose everyday objects with an ironic filter.    Sharing the same passion for taking handcraft in new directions, Coleman and FENDI Accessories and Menswear Artistic Director Silvia Venturini Fendi worked together on a new interpretation of the iconic FF logo pattern, which was revisited through a Seventies’ psychedelic filter. The result is FF Vertigo, a new magnetic motif offering a twisted, turned version of the classic FF pattern.    In the accessories range, the yellow FF Vertigo is printed through an ink jet technology on the mineral tanned leather used for the legendary Peekaboobag. The same Vertigo pattern, in yellow or blue variations, is also printed on cool and resistant coated canvas and pops up on a timeless tobacco jacquard fabric. Both the variations pepper chic and functional shoppers and the new Baguette 1997 bag, a re-edition of the brand’s signature accessory, featuring slim sides and an adjustable and flappable handle, to wear under the arm, revamping the iconic spirit of this legendary style. FENDI Vertigo also decorates new bag designs, including the contemporary and cool FENDI Baulettomini bag together with the textile’s world that features featherlight fabrics ideal for the summer season. The capsule includes a fun, practical and versatile FENDI Mini Sunshine Shopperin straw with colored profiles in contrast and a more traditional leather version both with the iconic FENDI ROMA logo.     As part of the collaboration developed with Sarah Coleman, FENDI also peppered its PeekabooX-Tote and the Baguette 1997 with the FF Fisheye motif where the signature FF logo gets wavy and fluid, as it is seen through a fish-eye lens.    Cherry on top, inspired by the project showcased at Design Miami, Coleman and FENDI are also presenting a Peekaboo ISeeU style crafted from an FF logo padded nappa leather which is treated to glow in the dark.    On this occasion the Peekaboo ISeeU Small is presented, enlarging the Peekaboo ISeeUfamily; powerful attitude and proportions, it sprinkles the magic of the FENDI ultimate Icon in a smaller size appearing in timeless bicolor version in both smooth leather and Selleria.      Inspired by the sense of adventure and freedom deeply linked with the outdoor lifestyle, the ready-to-wear offering combines ultimate style and functionality. In the women’s RTW range, multi-pocket skirts, transformable jackets and cargo pants injected with an utilitarian feel are worn with hyper feminine bodysuits and draped tops showing the FF Vertigo pattern, which is also rendered on sporty windbreakers worn with coordinated gym sets, on one-piece swimsuits and bikinis, as well as on lace dresses, trench coats and fluid pants.      The same combination of effortless elegance and contemporary functionality is infused in the Men’s collection, deeply inspired by an outdoor mood. Lightweight yet resistant fabrics, including the FF Vertigo jacquard, give a chic yet practical twist to T-shirts, bowling shirts, bermudapants, as well as cool fisherman’s vests matched with coordinated baggy pants and polished raincoats and summer suits crafted from lightweight organza. The FF Vertigo multicolor motif is rendered on embossed leather on the FENDI Packstyle, while the flat Baguette, coming in a medium and mini version, are the go-to pieces enhancing the chic yet functional appeal of the collection. Adding an extra exciting touch to the lineup, the Peekaboo ISeeUbag is shown in an iconic nappa version embossed with the FF fish-eye motif. Celebrating the joys of the outdoor life, the FENDI Flowrunners stand out with their FF Vertigo pattern, along with the new featherweight FENDI Force high-top sneaker, which finds place next to trekking sandals. The outdoor theme also influences the high-tech ear pods and phone cases, as well the jewelry selection where interlaced leather is matched with both lacquered metallic details and hiking ropes.     In keeping with the “mini me” trend, adult silhouettes find a playful, utterly cute reinterpretation in the kidswear range, where the swirling FF Vertigo pattern is splashed on nylon outfits with an utility feel, as well as on canvas compact pants, on organza draped frocks and tops, as well as on a selection of beachwear styles.     The irresistible FF “Fisheye” and FF “Vertigo” wave patterns bring an extra excitement to the Forever Fendi Timepieces collection. The 29mm stainless steel case versions are presented in two versions, the vibrant multicolor FF “Fisheye” pattern decorates both the luminescent dial and the white calfskin leather strap of the watch while in the other version shines a yellow sunray opalin dial with a white printed FF “Vertigo” pattern with sapphire crystal on a satin-brushed stainless steel bracelet with polished stainless steel FF logo. The 39mm stainless steel versions feature a brown vertical brushed opalin dial with dark brown printed FF “Vertigo” pattern or a white vertical brushed opalin dial with multicolor printed FF “Fisheye” pattern, both have a double date aperture at 12 o’clockand a satin-brushed stainless-steel bracelet.     The charming, psychedelic FF Vertigo motif is also the protagonist of a range of limited-edition items, designed for the coolest outdoor adventures. A Polaroid cameraborn from the will to personalize the iconic Vintage Polaroid 636 with the FENDI DNA, combining the design of the renowned instant camera from the ‘90s with FF Vertigo.      A fun and versatile food à porter Bento box is part of the collaboration between FENDI and Alessi and a camping equipment set, including a tent and a men’s technical backpack is produced by specialist Ferrino both representing two leading companies in their fields, united by Italian excellence and expertise.     In keeping with the effervescent vintage-like spirit of the Summer Capsule, FENDI also infuses a free-spirited Seventies’ vibe into a range of crochet bag styles, spanning from the Mini Peekaboo and the Baguetteto the Sunshine Shopper enriched with the FENDI Roma logo.      At the same time, a Nineties’ intentionally kitschy vibe is channelled with the boldest version of the Baguette 1997, covered with a cascade of shimmering sequins or enriched with intricate floral embroideries.     Along with Sarah Coleman collaboration, the Sellerissima range completes the Summer Capsule. The hyper sophisticated Selleria range gets updated with an audacious touch: a handmade macro stitching exalting the timeless shapes of FENDI, the Peekaboo and the Baguette, as well as of fashion styles, like the By the Way, the Moonlightand theSunshine Shopper.       Available in FENDI Boutiques worldwide and on fendi.com on 13th May 2021.   Explore the collection on https://www.fendi.com         CREDITS: Photographer & Director: Valentin Herfray     Photographer & Director: Valentin Herfray   Stylist: Chaos Fashion   Models: Maty Fall Britt Oosten Mao Xiaoxing Maggie Cheng Felix Cheong Macleod Louis Dercon       Happy, colorful, irresistible… FENDI celebrates the summer season with a dedicated capsule collection injected with a joyful, uplifting mood.

LACOSTE presents the Autumn & Winter 2021-22 Collection

LACOSTE presents the Autumn & Winter 2021-22 Collection

Fashion The unapologetic modernity of the Front de Seine in Paris’ 15th district provides a striking backdrop for the Lacoste Autumn Winter 2021-22 collection designed by Louise Trotter. Photographed by Sam Rock against its sweeping architectural landmarks – a clash of grids and curves, concrete, bricks, tiles and glass – the season’s playful exchange of graphic sport codes and remixed classics appears in sharp relief. The impetus of an active lifestyle and the blur of movement between home, work, and play forms the basis of an interchangeable system of novel designs, as garments respond to the times with elegance, humour, and ease.      With a swatch card of bright shades grounded in muted neutrals, the collection tricks the eye with blown-up and shrunken proportions, unexpected fabrications, and the emergence of comic Lacoste characters. Like a cartoon, the signature house crocodile is reborn larger than life, as archive claw patches and bold croc heads create a new iconography alongside flaming tennis balls, a ‘tennis net’ shadow check, and an L-shaped varsity logo.      Quintessentially sportif, the concept of the tracksuit and twinset are subverted in multiple ways for men and women, as trompe l’oeilshirting, cardigans and jogging pants are all cut in cotton piqué – the keystone material of the Lacoste polo shirt – to create subtly matching sportsensembles. Tailoring reflects the sartorial heritage of the house founder René Lacoste, as the smooth enveloping lines of peacoats, varsity jackets, overcoats and trenches are tweaked for today with knit collars, bonding for bounce, and light nylon quilting.     Evolving the upcycled design process of recent seasons, shell suits, puffer coats and quilted liners are reconstructed from a patchwork of vintage and deadstock Lacoste fabrics, creating new geometries in classic sport shapes. ‘Framis’ bonding, drawstrings and oversized rope toggles further the athletic and engineered feel of garments, as do neoprene crop tops and sculpted shorts for women. Crisp unisex chinos feature elastic Velcro cuffs, polychrome leggings in neoprene and patched knit zip high above the ankle, and speed stripes echo the racing aesthetic of checkerboard jacquard polos and trims. Worn with embossed moulded slides, 5-panel cotton piqué caps and oversized rucksacks, they complete the season’s exercise in dynamic sport style.  The unapologetic modernity of the Front de Seine in Paris’ 15th district provides a striking backdrop for the Lacoste Autumn Winter 2021-22 collection designed by Louise Trotter.

FIRST STORE OF A.P.C. IN THE NETHERLANDS IS NOW OPEN

FIRST STORE OF A.P.C. IN THE NETHERLANDS IS NOW OPEN

Fashion The very first A.P.C. store in the Netherlands is open. The Parisian fashion label, known for its minimalist designs, does this together with Menno and Myrthe van Meurs, owners of denim and high fashion concept store Tenue de Nîmes. The Jordaan in Amsterdam is the chosen location of the rst Dutch mono brand store.     A.P.C. (Atelier de Production et de Création) was founded in 1987 by owner Jean Touitou. He works together with his wife, Judith Touitou – the creative director of the brand. A.P.C. is known for its high-quality jeans in raw denim, but also creates complete men’s and women’s collections that embody timeless elegance. Jean Touitou assumes the absence of extravagance and the return to the essential is what A.P.C. stands for.     In addition to ready-to-wear collections, A.P.C. Amsterdam has items from the most recent collaboration with Sacai and a limited number of one-of-kind vintage jeans from the Butler program, the brand’s denim recycling initiative.   For the Amsterdam store, A.P.C. works with their trusted design partner, Laurent Deroo Architect. In addition to projects such as Palais de Tokyo, he has been working with the French brand for over 15 years, designing their stores in for example Los Angeles, New York, Kyoto, London and Seoul.     The design of the store exudes the identity of the brand. The essence lies in the space that is created in a playful way through the use of very few materials. With an emphasis on symmetry, the whole property has been organically transformed into two mirrored spaces - the beige side for women and the blue-gray side for men. The color palette unites the mix of materials – wood and steel. The sustainability in the store design is approached by the simplicity and the lack of unnecessary use of materials.     Jean Touitou: “I am really looking forward to opening our very rst Dutch store and contacting our customers here in this way. I’ve never been to Amsterdam, but now of course I have a very good reason.”     Menno van Meurs: “I will never forget the day I got my rst raw A.P.C. bought jeans, on Mercer Street, New York in the previ-ous 2000s. Although I hated my new, very tight jeans, for two weeks, I loved them forever after that. Finally I found a brand that successfully applied age-old denim rules in a contemporary world. A.P.C. is clean, but never easy. Since that day I have admired the brand that Jean Touitou has built so carefully. He has created rock-solid DNA and will never let a fashion icono-clasm distract him from his vision. It is a great honor for me to work with Monsieur Touitou after all these years.”     A.P.C.’s 98th store worldwide is located at Elandsgracht 120 in Amsterdam.

Acne Studios presents the Fall/Winter 2021 Face collection

Fashion Exploring the 'chosen family’, the Acne Studios Fall/Winter 2021 Face collection transcends tradition by embracing kinship — through common values, interests and creativity. Shot by photographer Roe Ethridge, the images spotlight this concept by featuring French bands Nyokô Bokbaë and Faire, as well as a group of environmentalists and a trio of artists who are best friends. The playful and unisex garments, shoes and accessories have touches of vintage sportswear, 00s streetwear and worn-out workwear throughout. Over two drops, the iconic Face motif patch features in different guises in distinct ‘stories’, or families.     Drop 1 – “Basketball” & “Dazzle”, 6 May Featuring: French band Faire and artist trio Meme, Nini and Tavi   The first drop revolves around “Basketball” with a puffed basketball or contrast stitch Face motif patch. Soft, woven bleached checks, multicolour mesh, striped ribbing and jersey in powder pink, navy, yellow, purple, grey melange and bottle green take the form of a flannel coach jacket, shirt and shorts, marl sweatpants, hoodies and t-shirts, plus sport jersey-inspired tops and flannel-printed sneakers, bucket hat and tote bag. Also, within this drop is “Dazzle”, with rhinestone-embellished Face motif patches, embroidered patches and ultrasonic Face quilting. Shiny satin, jersey, fleece and blown-up diamond prints in subtle cream, beige, black and browns punctuated by jade green make the most of an updated varsity jacket, overshirt, sweatshirts, t- shirts, bucket hat and tote bag.     Drop 2 – “Bizzarro World Tour” & “Pop”, 8 July Featuring: French band Nyokô Bokbaë and environmentalists Jane, Lea and Polyka   The second drop sees “Bizzarro World Tour” with a stencil-sprayed or washed leather Face motif patch.

Fragrances Paula's Ibiza Eau de Toilette is a scent designed to recreate the spirit of letting go associated with the unique island of Ibiza at any given moment and place.     Launched in 2020 and returning for another summer season, the EDT is a universal fragrance for both men and women that adds a sensual, olfactory dimension to LOEWE’s annual Paula’s Ibiza capsule collection of ready-to-wear, bags and accessories; a range that’s designed to carry a relaxed, Balearic beachside spirit into the everyday.     Created in collaboration between LOEWE’s creative director, Jonathan Anderson, and in-house perfumier, Nuria Cruelles, Paula’s Ibiza EDT evokes escapism and joy through the senses: a memorable, transportive experience where the beach becomes both a place and an attitude.     ‘The perfume was created to encapsulate Paula’s Ibiza’s barefoot, bohemian vibes where effortlessness and optimism go hand in hand ’ – says J. Anderson.     The composition layers tropical top notes of coconut water, bright green galbanum and Madagascan mandarin oil with heart notes of driftwood, sand lily and frangipane, grounded by vanilla absolute, Sulawesi patchouli oil and warm ambergris at the base. It’s a scent suffused with spontaneity, hedonism and carefree spirit: escapism bottled.     And the bottle itself hypes the sense of hedonism: a rainbow-coloured ombré cylinder, with a glossy sky blue cap that invites the slippery touch of sun-creamed fingers. The box is embellished with an archive print designed by original Paula’s Ibiza boutique owners, Armin Heinemann and Stuart Rudnick, depicting mermaids frolicking with sea horses, swimming amongst seaweed and scarlet coral reef.     Full of freedom and positive energy, the campaign stills and film are themed ‘Locomia’, shot on location in Mexico by long-time LOEWE collaborator Gray Sorrenti. We see models dancing together, skateboarding, exploring the town and feeling the sun on their faces. The colourful scenes, vibrant clothing and playful, uninhibited action encapsulate Ibiza’s liberating spirit.     Through the additional Paula’s Ibiza EDT campaign images, we continue our journey through colour, back to LOEWE’s roots in craft. Gray Sorrenti’s studio shoot of models Mona Tougaard and Fernando Lindez entwined against a white backdrop joined by acid-bright still-lifes of handmade papier maché fruits and vegetables: Mexican folk art-inspired pieces arranged in the distinctive stacked arrangements of the photographer, Nacho Alegre.     In-store, to celebrate Paula’s Ibiza’s seasonal return, the windows will be dressed with artisan-crafted animal busts by Spanish straw artist, Javier S. Medina, in reference to the highly crafted nature of the fragrance and the interior decorations that adorn Ibizan fincas.     As an olfactory accessory to the vibrant ready-to-wear styles of Paula’s Ibiza, the Paula’s Ibiza EDT is a sunny, irreverent and optimistic one, with an ultimately simple message: that your mind can always travel, carried away by your senses.     @LOEWE_PERFUMES #LOEWEpaulas #LOEWEperfumes Paula's Ibiza Eau de Toilette is a scent designed to recreate the spirit of letting go associated with the unique island of Ibiza at any given moment and place.     Launched in 2020 and returning for another summer season, the EDT is a universal fragrance for both men and women that adds a sensual, olfactory dimension to LOEWE’s annual Paula’s Ibiza capsule collection of ready-to-wear, bags and accessories; a range that’s designed to carry a relaxed, Balearic beachside spirit into the everyday.     Created in collaboration between LOEWE’s creative director, Jonathan Anderson, and in-house perfumier, Nuria Cruelles, Paula’s Ibiza EDT evokes escapism and joy through the senses: a memorable, transportive experience where the beach becomes both a place and an attitude.     ‘The perfume was created to encapsulate Paula’s Ibiza’s barefoot, bohemian vibes where effortlessness and optimism go hand in hand ’ – says J.

BREITLING’S HERITAGE, REVIVED

BREITLING’S HERITAGE, REVIVED

Watches Inspired by the inventive spirit of Breitling’s founders, the new Premier Heritage Collection is for the modern and discerning man of impeccable taste. These exquisite timepieces are the brand’s most elegant and refined.     “This heritage-inspired design with a stylish modern twist embodies some of Breitling’s most famous innovations, and revives Breitling’s legacy of inventing the modern chronograph. This truly is our heritage revived,” says Georges Kern of Breitling’s timelessly elegant new collection.     The Premier Heritage Collection pays homage to Breitling’s very own Founders Squad: three generations of men who changed the history of timekeeping and made Breitling what it is today. Léon Breitling founded the company in 1884; later, he patented a simple timer/tachymeter that could measure any speed between 15 and 150 km/h, an invention featured in the 1906 Vitesse pocket watch.     In 1915, his son, Gaston, created one of the first wrist-worn chronographs with an independent pusher at 2 o’clock. This innovation separated the start, stop, and reset functions from the crown, making it infinitely more practical for timing sports.     In 1934, Léon’s grandson, Willy, patented the second independent chronograph pusher at 4 o’clock. Among Willy Breitling’s celebrated pioneering achievements was the establishment of the Huit Aviation Department in 1938.     VERY IMPECCABLE TASTE:   Besides being bold and tech savvy, Willy Breitling understood people’s desire for a touch of elegance and glamour. This inspired him to design the original Premier wristwatches in the 1940s, Breitling’s first step in linking purpose with style. As Willy saw it, “When a man puts on his watch, it is the unmistakable stamp of impeccable taste.”     The latest generation of Premiers – Breitling’s Premier Heritage Collection – brings this timeless elegance back to life. The collection includes six watches divided into three distinctive categories: The Chronograph, The Duograph, and The Datora.     All feature Arabic numerals, vintage-inspired hands and semi-shiny alligator straps with tone- on-tone stitching. Every watch is a COSC-certified chronometer and water-resistant up to 100 meters.     MANY GROUNDBREAKING FUNCTIONS:     The 40 mm Premier Heritage Chronograph is manually wound, just like its 1940s predecessors. It is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, which is based on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. It comes in two variations: with an eye-catching pistachio-green dial encased in stainless steel or a stately silver-colored dial encased in 18 k red gold.     With stainless-steel and 18 k red gold cases measuring 42 mm, the Premier Heritage Duograph comes with a blue or black dial, respectively. Its rattrapante function – one of the most elaborate in watchmaking – enables the wearer to measure two elapsed times simultaneously thanks to its two superimposed chronograph hands. This piece houses the mechanical hand-wound Breitling Manufacture Caliber B15, which is based on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B03.     Like its 1940s predecessor, the 42 mm Premier Heritage Datora also stands out for its highly visible and complex functions, namely its day, date, and moon-phase displays. It is powered by the Manufacture Caliber B25. The Datora’s copper-colored face is framed by a stainless-steel case, while its silver-colored dial comes in an 18 k red gold one.     All three models of the Premier Heritage Collection highlight Breitling’s mastery of timekeeping as it has evolved over the generations.

Yazija steps Out into the open

Yazija steps Out into the open

Music Yazija finds himself at the intersection of music and performance art. Through his music, which blends pop, soul and modern R&B, Yazija investigates various themes that play an important part in his life such as the identity of self, gender roles, and masculine vulnerability.      His debut single and PRV (Performance Registration Video) Out isa refined reflection on his own identity. “For such a long period of time I’ve been too insecure to share my true self with the worldand for long I did not understand why. It was only until I got introduced to professor Kimberlé Crenshaw’s work on intersectionality that helped me understand my complex position; being a queer man of color living in a rigid patriarchal society. My debut single ‘Out’ marks the beginning of a journey through which I hope to uncover all the parts of myself that I have subconsciously repressed for too long”, he says.     “I’m out in the open,” he sings in the opening line. From the very start of the music video, the focus is on his movement, on his silhouette, as he confronts the viewer with a gazeinto the camera. He shares the room only with Calla Lilies - which symbolize rebirth and are used frequently by Robert Mapplethorpe,a photographer who is of great inspiration to him- as he moves his body over screaming guitar solos while hisshadow fluidly dances across the wall.     Art plays an important role in Yazija’s universe. He knows how much of a savior it can be and has a deep knowledge of how it can help us understand ourselves and each other. “Art is a beautiful language created by us humans which often helps us speak the words we dare not to say. Every work of art is an expression of an individual’s own complex experience, a point of view of their life in this world,” he says. With that in mind, the performance registration video for Outand the experience of the listener or viewer was always going to be an important aspect of the single.     When considering the visual, he was inspired by artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien CBE RA’s 1989 film ‘Looking For Langston’. He loves its captivating cinematography along with the urgency the film expresses and the fact that Julien made the film knowing the topics could cause controversy. After meeting Yazija in London and hearing a demo of Out, Julien offered to become a long-distance mentor to the young emerging artist and helped him realize his debut PRV.      For the characters in ‘Looking for Langston’, dance is an incredibly urgent form of expression and fortitude in the face of repression, and Yazija embodies this rebellion. Growing up, he would barely dance in public through fear of others thinking he was expressing himself too freely, but as he fearlessly spins and steps his way through the video for Out, he takes a determined stance against all those who bear judgement. “With this release I’m saying forget all that. I’m gonna be me unapologetically,” he says. “The world needs to know that nothing makes my heart race likeperforming and living my truth.”     Out by Yazija is streaming on all platforms now, click here to listen.  Yazija finds himself at the intersection of music and performance art.

AUDEMARS PIGUET PRESENTS GREEN HUES FOR THE ROYAL OAK

Watches Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer, Audemars Piguet, is pleased to unveil several new Royal Oak models enriched with green dials. The new offerings include a 950platinum Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin with a smoked green dial embellished with a sunburst pattern, as well as a limited-edition Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph with an 18-carat yellowgold case and a green “Grande Tapisserie” dial. Lastly, the Manufacture also presents three new Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon variants in pink gold or titanium, all of which incorporate green hues.     Audemars Piguet first employed colourful stone dials during the 1970s, in brown, green and blue tones. This paved the way for a new generation of lively and expressive dials in the 1990s, whichhave permeated the Manufacture’s collections ever since.     ROYAL OAK “JUMBO” EXTRA-THIN     The 39mm “Jumbo” is presented with a full 950 platinum case and bracelet as well as a smoked green dial adorned with a sunburst pattern. This is the first time that this configuration has been employed within the 15202 collection. Just 8.1 mm in thickness, the case also confers a slender appearance. The white gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands are treated with luminescent coating,aiding legibility in dim light. The “Audemars Piguet” signature is positioned below noon, while the AP initials are located at 6 o’clock, as “Jumbo” convention dictates. At the heart of the watch is the selfwinding Manufacture Calibre 2121 fitted with a 22-carat gold oscillating weight. The inventory of functions includes: hours, minutes and date. The Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin is exclusively reserved for AP Houses.     ROYAL OAK SELFWINDING CHRONOGRAPH     The Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph is offered in a new colourway, pairing an 18-carat yellowgold case with a green dial. The dial is adorned with a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern complemented with three snailed counters. The “Audemars Piguet” name on the dial is formed of 24-carat gold andrealised using galvanic growth. The model is fitted with a solid caseback engraved with “Limited Edition” (125 pieces). Housed in a 41mm case, this version of the Royal Oak is powered by the selfwinding Manufacture Calibre 2385 which includes an 18-carat gold oscillating weight. As well as its chronograph, the movement indicates the hours, minutes, small seconds and date. In addition to the yellow gold bracelet, with AP folding clasp, the model is supplied with two additional straps: green calfskin and green rubber.       ROYAL OAK SELFWINDING FLYING TOURBILLON   Upholding Audemars Piguet’s reputation for making high complications, the Royal Oak SelfwindingFlying Tourbillon showcases the talents of the Manufacture’s craftspeople with three new variants and much hand-finishing in evidence. Each option is presented in a 41mm case and is endowed with a green Tapisserie dial enriched with a sunburst pattern. The first reference comes with an 18-carat pink gold case with matching hour-markers and hands. This model is limited to just 10 pieces. The second model, limited to 50 pieces, is crafted in full titanium. The third model, limited to 15 pieces, combines a titanium case with an 18-carat white gold bezel set with 32 baguette-cut emeralds (~2.41 carats), each individually cut, faceted and set by hand. The emeralds’ verdant huesenhance the green colour of the Tapisserie dial, while offering a unique play of light. Both titanium models incorporate white gold applied hour-makers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating and are complemented with a titanium bracelet. All models are equipped with the selfwinding Manufacture Calibre 2950, the latest generation of the Audemars Piguet flying tourbillon. Unlike a conventional tourbillon, a flying tourbillon eschews the upper bridge, affording views of the escapement, regulating organ and cage in motion.     “Born in Le Brassus, raised around the world.”   Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer, Audemars Piguet, is pleased to unveil several new Royal Oak models enriched with green dials.
