Bell & Ross releases their new watch

Watches   Bell & Ross, the luxury watch company and ultimate reference for professional aviation timepieces, goes back to its origins in high-performance military instruments with a new interpretation of its iconic watch, the BR 03-92 HUD. Its Instruments collection is directly inspired by the aeronautical essential navigation tools of aircraft cockpits, and highlights Bell & Ross’ four fundamental requirements: legibility, functionality, precision and water-resistance.  Fully in line with this collection, the new BR03-92 HUD gets inspiration from the avionics displays of fighter jets equipped with the most cutting-edge technologies.      FROM THE COCKPIT TO THE WRIST    In 2005, the BR 01 was inspired by the cockpit clocks of 1970s airplanes. This iconic watch was designed using high-tech materials and complicationsreflecting the finest watchmaking craftsmanship.      Pushing its expertise to explore aeronautical navigation instruments further, Bell & Ross develops and innovate year after year with a collection of exclusive watches.  All of these models make up the instrument panel of an aircraft and offer both a completely new way of reading time and an uncompromising legibility – an absolute necessity for a professional use. It all started in 2010 with the BR 01 RADAR, followed by other singular references like the BR01 TURN COORDINATOR or BR 01 HEADING INDICATOR. In 2020, as part of its continuing quest for innovation and performance, the watchmakers at Bell & Ross turned their attention on the Head Up Display.  This new introduction completes this Flight Instruments family.     H.U.D - HEAD UP DISPLAY   The Head Up Display - also known as HUD - is a transparent glass screen that displays all information that are essential to fulfill a mission, in the pilot's visual field. For optimal effectiveness, its primary function is to keep the pilot focused on his target ahead without having to take the eyes off his line of sight.  Considered as both technological and safety equipment, the HUD takes on the augmented reality concept. With HUDs displaying digital data onto the windshield, pilots can be alerted about everything from the horizon line, altitude or speed to navigation aids such as the flight path vector – indicating the direction the jet is taking. As a result, this high-performance tool puts the emphasis on legibility and will guide the way day and night. In case of low visibility for instance or no matter the conditions, the screen will adjust in brightness and contrast to optimize the ambient lighting. Although it was originally used in the military field since the 1950’s, the HUD is now also frequently exploited in civil aviation and automobile industry. The military world has always been a pioneer in numerous fields. It has created an unquestionable expertise in the field of avant-garde technology and its innovations have had various applications in civilian life, such as the Internet, GPS or even the first business jet aircrafts.     Bell & Ross, the luxury watch company and ultimate reference for professional aviation timepieces, goes back to its origins in high-performance military instruments with a new interpretation of its iconic watch, the BR 03-92 HUD. Its Instruments collection is directly inspired by the aeronautical essential navigation tools of aircraft cockpits, and highlights Bell & Ross’ four fundamental requirements: legibility, functionality, precision and water-resistance.  Fully in line with this collection, the new BR03-92 HUD gets inspiration from the avionics displays of fighter jets equipped with the most cutting-edge technologies.      FROM THE COCKPIT TO THE WRIST    In 2005, the BR 01 was inspired by the cockpit clocks of 1970s airplanes.

GUCCI releases Prefall 2020 campaign

GUCCI releases Prefall 2020 campaign

Fashion Infancy is a magic time of perfect harmony with the whole of creation; of pure innocence and absolute spontaneity. It is the realm of imaginary friends and pets - any pet, even a skunk or a frog - as best friends. Like an Arcadia, or a mythic era that will never be repeated, it lasts for a very short while, which is probably why its charm is eternally crystallized as the perfect moment to aspire to, no matter what. We would all love to be children again, with or without the knowledge acquired through adulthood.    The new Gucci advertising campaign is an ode to retrieved innocence, a return to the infant world, a call for a real engagement with nature and, with that, with life. It is simple and direct, just like infancy should be: a beautiful wild landscape bathed in gleaming light as the ambiance for a spontaneous interaction between a cast of characters and a group of wonderful fairy tale animals. That’s it, with the unexpected presence of swings and slides: perfect childhood pastimes usually not found in the wild.   Through the lens of Alasdair McLellan, a series of portraiture vignettes, as expressive as they are vibrant, take shape, depicting the beauty and the personalities of a group of men, women and their beloved animals. Deers, fawns, owls, blue birds, skunks, squirrels, frogs, hedgehogs, ducks and rabbits are featured across the images: spirit animals dialoguing with the subjects in ways that recall classic allegories and cartoons.    With its call to nature, the campaign is ultimately an invitation to enjoy the simple things in life. Sometimes, it just takes very little, or a burst of imagination, to find some balance. On a swing, maybe. Or, with a fawn.   #SoDeerToMe     Nature, wildlife and its denizens are particularly important to Gucci, which, since 2018, has been totally carbon neutral across the whole supply chain. In February 2020, Gucci joined The Lion’s Share Fund, a unique initiative raising much-needed funds to protect endangered species and their natural habitats. Animals appear in approximately 20 percent of all advertisements in the world, yet despite this, animals do not always receive the support they deserve. By donating 0.5% of its media spend every time an animal is featured in advertisements, as all the partners involved in The Lion’s Share Fund do, Gucci can give ongoing contributions to drive tangible on the ground results for this urgent cause.        Creative Director: Alessandro Michele Art Director: Christopher Simmonds Photographer/Director: Alasdair McLellan Hair Stylist: Paul Hanlon Make Up: Thomas De Kluyver Infancy is a magic time of perfect harmony with the whole of creation; of pure innocence and absolute spontaneity.

Men During the quarantine times, we had a chance to speak with Lucky Blue Smith in our "In conversation with" series.     What is your daily beauty regime? To be honest i truly don’t have one, i mean i wash my face but other than that i don’t have a regime i follow   How do you see the impact of the corona crisis on the general perception of fashion?  I think it’s shifting towards social media even more so and will continue to do that.   What is your favorite piece of underwear?

I’m an introvert so my lifestyle hasn’t really changed much.    What is your favourite and least favourite modelling memory so far? My favorite was when i went on the Ellen show. I’ve never had a bad memory honestly.    How has becoming a father, changed your life? I definitely put more thought into everything i’m doing and  i’ve also matured a lot.   What is next in store for you? Got any new things coming up or have planned for? Right now i’m focusing on acting and my family. it’s tough to really have things planned out since we don’t know when this crisis will be over, but i’m using this time to learn more about real estate, other skills like a new language and things i’ve been passionate about.   Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence. I did and I loved it. Went there with my mom once.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? 100 push ups a day.    Tell me about your favourite and least favourite do’s and dont’s in LA?

In conversation with Plastik Funk

Music Spanish-born, Germany-based Plastik Funk is a renegade within modern electronic dance music that, as European DJs and producers continue to dominate and entice, leads the charge with an impressive collection of accolades, mind-boggling energy and world-class releases to solidify his status.  Withan ever growing amount of multi-million streamed tracks to his name including the UK chart-smashing ‘Dr.Who!’ alongside Tujamo and Sneakbo (clocking in at 6 million Spotify plays alone) to his recent collaboration alongside Aussie sisters NERVO and Tim Morrison - ‘Dare Me’ on the mighty Spinnin’ Records, which has received over 2 million streams and still climbing! Plastik Funk continues to take his “bliss house” sound to audiences around the world. Whether he’s collaborating with elite artists such as Timmy Trumpet and Alle Farben, or remixing the likes of Robin Schulz, David Guetta or Robyn, the core of Plastik Funk’ssound is all about the party. From club shows to mainstage festival arenas it’s that bass-driven, bouncing house style that never fails to ignite a dancefloor and have the crowd in pure hysteria.    We spoke to Plastik Funk about the current situation and new music.   Your new track “Rock This Town” is now out. Tell us more about the tune and the collaboration. Yes its finally out and im super happy to see the amazing feedback and support. So many Big Names of the Business supported the track already. We tried to find a good combo between the Deekey and the Plastik Funk sound. This was easy and the combination just rocks!    How was it like working with Deekey on the new track? How did you guys decide for the collaboration? I was playing Deekey tracks and did dome special Edits of them, because i always loved the sound. I met this young russian guy in Amsterdam and we decided to work on a collab together. We did like 2-3 online sessions and the track was born. I tested the track for like 2 months and it was a floorfillqr in my sets from the first time i played it.    How does COVID-19 affect your work and cancelled gigs? Its pretty bad actually, our business is the first which gets affected and the last which will get back to work… From February  - May i already lost 35 shows. We loosing a lot of money, but first of all we loosing a beautiful summer with the festivals we all love and we also need to survive. Im in Ibiza at the moment and the island is under a full lockdown. We are only allowed to leave the house for buying food, walk your dog or if you need to go to a doctor/hospital… Gives us a lot of time to work on music at least.   What do you do and suggest to our readers to do during quarantined time? For me as i was touring non stop for years and living in the rush from week to week, its time to think, to organise myself, spent more time with creating ideas and tracks. beside being creative you need to take care of your body. We have to be home 24/7, so i think workouts & healthy food is so important to get thru this time. Also for me its very important to have a structured day to stay positive.   Tell us more about your sound, we know you have called it “bliss house” but how do you define this? Im a housemusic producer100%. So cool thing with music is, its has so many different styles and almost everything we hear has been here already before. If you mix styles you create something new. I always tried to keep my music identity with putting new influences from other styles into my own style. Someone asked me some years ago how to describe my sound, because they thought its a bit different to the future house which was put there. I call it Blisshouse and Bliss means: Happiness, Summer, good feelings, fun for everyone. Housemusic you can play and party to in Clubs but also on a MainStage at a big Festival.   What is your favourite festival experience so far? What festival are you most looking forward to getting back to post-quarantine? At the moment we dont know which will be the first festival we are allowed to play, we dont know when we getting back to normal… I have around 25 Festivals scheduled for summer 2020 and im looking forward to all the events coming. Especially after the quarantine time we will party like crazy, im 100% sure!   Tell us about your forthcoming track on Generation Smash, part of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s label? The next release is a collab with rising producers Relanium & Deen West. I know the guys from events in Germany and im playing a lot of their stuff lately. They sent me some ideas and we started working on a collab. The track is called #party and its an absolute dance floor killer! Thats my second release for the month of april and also a club tune. Super happy also with this track and can’t wait to show it to the world!   What is next in store for you? In May i will my collab with my brothers of Firebeatz on Spinnin records. We were working on this collab for long time and its a fire collab with an amazing vocal. Beside that i have 2 other collabs ready, 2 more collabs in the making and 2 solo tracks ready and signed.

Roger Dubuis releases Excalibur Twofold

Watches Since 1995 Roger Dubuis manufacture is defined by “no limit” innovation, technical prowess, demanding savoir-faire and stylistic audacity.   Its integrated manufacture enables absolute technical mastery and true independence.Visionary designers push the limits together with incredible watchmakers to design non-conformist grand complications. They are given free rein to create and innovate without restraint. Roger Dubuis is constantly breaking codes and conventions to create the most expressive pieces of Haute Horology. Most Roger Dubuis Watches bear the Poinçon de Genève. Vivid proof of its excess in excellence, exclusivity, know-how, and performance. Requiring 40% additional production time, Roger Dubuis watches offer its aficionados 100% excess in excellence and beauty.   Excess in design Distinguished by this unleashed creativity, all timepieces are excessively technical and supremely extravagant. Roger Dubuis continuously places watchmaking technology at the service of aesthetics. Thus, using avant-garde materials inspired by other cutting-edge industries – such as Additive Manufacturing and Composite Material technologies– highlights even further the expressive singularity of the Maison. No limits in the design, no boundaries in the technical prowess. Just excess and beyond with Roger Dubuis.   Extravagance at every step Roger Dubuis embraces its disruptive attitude transcending trends and mass appeal. The undisputable choice for an exclusive tribe of rebellious hedonists who want to enjoy life to the fullest and who know that Roger Dubuis will offer them unforgettable and larger than life experiences. With excess. With insolence. Possessed by the freedom of extravagance.   Excalibur Twofold: a glacial touch of audacity and world premieres Playing with the highest standards of Haute Horlogerie, Roger Dubuis presents a new interpretation of its signature movement, the double flying tourbillon. The Excalibur Twofold is a perfect illustration of its expressive singularity and know-how that is even more striking in the dark. This incredible horological creation represents three world premieres. With a 45mm case, the glacial touch of Excalibur Twofold is enhanced by the bezel and the case created in Mineral Composite Fiber (MCF), an ultra-white composite material made of 99.95% silica and, specifically developed by Roger Dubuis. A never-yet seen prowess in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) process mastered by Roger Dubuis engineers enables the Manufacture to play with this unique Mineral Composite Fiber. For the first time, a patented process was developed to light up every angle of the upper plate of the movement composed of MCF. Luminescent at night and lasting 60% longer than standard luminescent material commonly used. Lastly, the Twofold strap is made from a specific FKM rubber and is also luminescent, based on a world-first technology named “LumiSuperBiwiNova™” that makes part of the strap luminescent glow in the dark like a nocturnal signature. Combining lightness and resistance, this new technical masterpiece demands an extreme watchmaking savoir-faire.   Bearing the Poinçon de Genève, the Excalibur Twofold is a limited edition of eight pieces, an unparalleled proof of excessive rarity. The Maison once again relentlessly asserts its technical independence and radical aesthetic decisions. To excessive joy from its aficionados, Roger Dubuis proves to be the most exciting way to experience Hyper Horology.  Since 1995 Roger Dubuis manufacture is defined by “no limit” innovation, technical prowess, demanding savoir-faire and stylistic audacity.   Its integrated manufacture enables absolute technical mastery and true independence.Visionary designers push the limits together with incredible watchmakers to design non-conformist grand complications.

The Excalibur Twofold is a perfect illustration of its expressive singularity and know-how that is even more striking in the dark. This incredible horological creation represents three world premieres. With a 45mm case, the glacial touch of Excalibur Twofold is enhanced by the bezel and the case created in Mineral Composite Fiber (MCF), an ultra-white composite material made of 99.95% silica and, specifically developed by Roger Dubuis. A never-yet seen prowess in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) process mastered by Roger Dubuis engineers enables the Manufacture to play with this unique Mineral Composite Fiber. For the first time, a patented process was developed to light up every angle of the upper plate of the movement composed of MCF. Luminescent at night and lasting 60% longer than standard luminescent material commonly used. Lastly, the Twofold strap is made from a specific FKM rubber and is also luminescent, based on a world-first technology named “LumiSuperBiwiNova™” that makes part of the strap luminescent glow in the dark like a nocturnal signature. Combining lightness and resistance, this new technical masterpiece demands an extreme watchmaking savoir-faire.   Bearing the Poinçon de Genève, the Excalibur Twofold is a limited edition of eight pieces, an unparalleled proof of excessive rarity. The Maison once again relentlessly asserts its technical independence and radical aesthetic decisions. To excessive joy from its aficionados, Roger Dubuis proves to be the most exciting way to experience Hyper Horology.
