BRIONI x Brad Pitt presents the AW2020 ‘Tailoring Legends’ advertising campaign. The intimate, black and white portraits lensed by photographer Mikael Jansson, feature the Academy Award Winner showcasing his personal and laidback interpretation of the Brioni style.
For an exceptional look, the 42 mm case is crafted in platinum-gold, with a platinum-gold plate on its side, engraved with each Numbered Edition number. The same beautiful material is also used for the polished-brushed buckle of the watch’s black leather strap. More unique details can be uncovered throughout the design, including a black ceramic bezel ring with a platinum diving scale in positive relief, as well as a black enamel dial, which has been given a spiralling gun-barrel design in 18K white gold.
As part of the OMEGA James Bond collection that was launched last year, this watch also includes a hidden number 50 within the Super-LumiNova of the 10 o’clock index - a reference to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Elsewhere on the dial, you can find a 007 logo at 7 o’clock on the white enamel minute track, as well as 18K white gold features, including the hands, indexes and Bond family coat-of-arms at 12 o’clock. Turning the watch over reveals a second Bond family coat-of-arms, which has been laser-engraved and filled with platinum on the sapphire crystal caseback. Its captivating final effect is completed with hand-engraved finishing in the finest detail. Through the glass, you can spy the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 – certified at the highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance. Finally, for fans who are able to obtain this Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition, it comes presented in its own Globe-Trotter™ suitcase, bound by NATO-inspired straps. Inside, an additional black rubber strap is included.
Maison Perrier Jouët has been guided by a love of nature since it established in 1811. Its founders, Pierre Nicolas Perrier and Rose Adélaïde Jouët, were renowned for their keen interest in botany and for their progressive ideas on natural viticulture, which were taken up by succeeding generations. Today, nature remains at the very heart of the House, and has provided the inspiration for a new, fully recyclable collection of gift boxes for its classic, non vintage champagnes. The result of two years’ research and development, the new gift boxes merge an elegant, minimalist aesthetic with a focus on sustainability. Designed and manufactured in France, they are produced from 100% natural fibre, sourced from certified forests in Northern Europe, and are nearly 30% (55 g) lighter than the previous versions. Advanced embossing techniques are used to minimise the consumption of ink, which is water based and free from mineral oils. As a result, the new designs are not only fully recyclable, but also more easily recyclable, owing to their minimal use of secondary materials. Simultaneously, Maison Perrier Jouët will adopt new, eco designed shipping cases, produced from recycled and grass paper, which are also 100% recyclable.
This change has been accomplished without compromising on Maison Perrier Jouët’s signature elegance and attention to detail. Inspired by the chalky subsoil of Champagne, the new gift boxes are pure, matte white and are embossed all over with an intricate motif recalling the House’s legendary anemones. The only colour is reserved for the oval cartouche, echoing the shape of the bottle label, which bears the name of each cuvée: green for Perrier Jouët Grand Brut, pink for Perrier Jouët Blason Rosé, gold for Perrier Jouët Blanc de Blancs. The symbiotic relationship with nature which Maison Perrier Jouët has maintained for more than two centuries has intensified in recent years, taking the form of a sincere, ethical and lasting commitment and concrete actions. The launch of the new gift box collection which will be rolled out worldwide from 1 July 2020 represents the latest stage of the House’s ongoing efforts to reduce its impact on nature. In line with this objective, which extends from the vineyard to the finished product, the entire gifting offer will be sustainable by 2022.
