ANIMA MUNDI Lifestyle Collection


In the Brunello Cucinelli boutique on Via Montenapoleone a journey is chronicled, an exploration of a world without borders, where urban and tribal vibes blend through a very close connection of heritage and modernity, in a pure Brunello Cucinelli style.

Visitors are like wayfarers walking down a dynamic route combining far-away explorations with daily luxury living. A contemporary traveller who, after crossing sunbathed lands and days, brings home a light-filled inspiration to design a welcoming and comfortable space where to put one’s Soul to rest.


The final port of call is the «Casa Brunello Cucinelli», where  visitors can regain control of their human dimension and leave the hustle and bustle outside, surrounded by the genuine gifts of our precious land, Umbria, where the warm touch of the sun fills our “Green Gold” with new life.

Omega Introduces The New Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition

The original OMEGA CK2998 was released in 1959 and, for collectors, it has since become one of the most sought-after vintage Speedmasters in the world. With its Alpha hands, symmetrical case and dark bezel, it has always had a strong following amongst the most admiring watch enthusiasts. The model also has a particularly notable reputation as the “first OMEGA in space”. In 1962, astronaut Walter "Wally" Schirra made history when he wore his own personal Speedmaster CK2998 during the “Sigma 7” mission of the Mercury program.


Today, OMEGA has used this classic model as inspiration for its newest timepiece. So many of the iconic features have been retained, yet the watch is on a mission to reach new fans, through several updates to its stunning design. All three subdials are black, as well as the minutes track and the polished ceramic bezel with its white enamel pulsometer scale. There is also a black leather strap with a white rubber interior that has been micro-perforated.


The pulsometer scale, which is used to check a person’s heartbeats per minute, has particular relevance to the CK2998.  With the original models, customers were able to choose from four different versions of the timing bezel (including tachymeter, pulsometer, decimal or telemeter). Therefore, this new model remains in-line with that design heritage. The polished and brushed stainless steel case is complemented by a lightly sand-blasted silvery dial that also houses a number of exquisite features. Firstly, blackened “Alpha” hands are used for the hours and minutes, while sand-blasted rhodium-plated “Alpha” hands are used on the subdials. The chronograph seconds hand comes in varnished red.


The hour and minute hands, as well as the blackened indexes, also include Super-LumiNova for increased visibility in dark conditions. 2,998 of these collectable watches have been produced and each unique Limited Edition number can be found on the caseback, along with the original Seahorse medallion and a “SPEEDMASTER” engraving. Finally, it’s important to note that the heritage of this model continues on the inside. Each Limited Edition is driven by the OMEGA Calibre 1861, a movement that is deeply rooted in the history of the “Moonwatch”. Now, its adventure will continue through wearers of this new timepiece.


Louis Vuitton Presents New Objets Nomades & Les Petits Nomades At Fuori Salone 2018

 The first Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades collection is innovative and inventive, poetic and elegant: decorative objects for the home by some of the world’s most renowned designers, Humberto & Fernando Campana, Atelier Oï, Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders. Each object of Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades is an invitation to take home a unique blend of a designer’s creative vision and the House’s traditional savoir-faire and innovative craftsmanship. These smaller-scale objects, inspired by the designers’ Objets Nomades, Louis Vuitton’s ever-growing collection of limited-edition collectable furniture, are functional and beautiful interpretations of the House’s world of refined and inspiring design.


As an accessible way to share the spirit of Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades, this new collection makes perfect gifts. Louis Vuitton Les Petits Nomades colleciton includes the Tropicalist Vase by Humberto & Fernando Campana, the Origami Flower, Leather Rosace Vase and Tray & Flower Field Cushion by Atelier Oï, the Overlay Bowl by Patricia Urquiola and the petit Diamond Mirror by Marcel Wanders. For the first time, internationally renowned architect André Fu unveiled a new Objet Nomade – Ribbon Dance at Palazzo Bocconi.André Fu’s two-person “conversation” chair is a graceful echo of the movements of traditional Asian ribbon dances.


Its pair of seats sit balanced between the elegant curves of the wooden arms covered in Louis Vuitton leather, their shape evoking ideas of infinity and giving the chair its delightfully fluid profile. In collaboration with Louis Vuitton, Marcel Wanders is presenting two Diamond Mirrors (2018) as part of the Objets Nomades collection at Fuori Salone this April. The mirrors have been designed in two sizes and are referred to as the large Diamond Mirror and the petit Diamond Mirror.


They feature a central octagon that is circled by 25 smaller triangular mirrors and use dazzling geometric design to create poetic reflections. Each mirror’s faceted rigid structure is enveloped in Louis Vuitton’s rich Nomade leather and reveals Louis Vuitton’s emblematic contrasting stitching. The Petits Diamond Mirrors are mounted on a heavyweight silvery brass stand with a marble foot. The patterns created by the Diamond Mirror’s facets are reminiscent of the repeated shapes of another one of Marcel Wanders’ Objets Nomades, the leather Diamond Screen.


As the latest additions to the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection, these mirrors playfully combine a rigorous geometrical design with subtle bright reflections revealed through the effect of surrounding light. With their angular beauty, the Diamond Mirrors bring poetry and enlightenment to any room.
