SACAI SS2020 Collection - mylifestylenews' Top 10's Pick


SACAI SS2020 Collection


One Nation Under a Groove


The words of George Clinton and Funkadelic deliver a message of harmony and unity.


Translated by designer Chitose Abe to her SS2020 collection.


A response to the disharmony in our world today and here unifying different wardrobe elements to make one harmonious, hybrid piece, while continuing her career-long quest to re-imagine what’s possible with silhouette.


Chiffon lavalliere blouse / pants / trench all incorporated into one dress. Coat / skirt / dress shirt, all joined as one, with a new, elegant harmony.


The map of the world and a motif inspired by cartography extends the theme - as embroidery on trenches, prints on dresses and playful, 3D fringe on knits and lady-like tweed, in forms reminiscent of the seven continents, with a spectrum of colour, from bright through to monochrome.


Rope belts and fastenings pull looks together, while making a new silhouette.


The cord inspired by climbing rope, playing with the notion - held deeply and with hope and optimism that humanity ultimately rises to a higher place.

OMEGA Presents OMEGA’s 321-Powered Moonwatch

 51 years ago, the astronauts of Apollo 11 were taking the first ever human footsteps onto the moon. Inside the crew’s OMEGA Speedmaster watches, was the now-famous Calibre 321, a movement that not only became legendary that day, but also returned for every lunar landing in history. This year, OMEGA has expertly recreated the Calibre 321 in its 2nd generation form, and included it in a very special timepiece known as the Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Stainless Steel. While this exciting news was released earlier in 2020, OMEGA is proud to announce that the watch is now ready to wear on Earth.


The non-limited timepiece offers a genuine connection to space history, as well as a movement that has long been cherished and sought-after by watch collectors and aficionados around the world. The 39.70 mm case has been crafted in stainless steel, and is influenced by another piece of Speedmaster space heritage - the 3rd generation style that was worn during America’s first space walk in 1965. The design also includes a bezel ring in polished black ceramic [ZrO2] with a tachymeter scale in white enamel, as well as the iconic “Dot over Ninety”. Gracing the black step dial are the familiar Moonwatch hands, along with a vintage OMEGA logo.


Through the sapphire crystal caseback, owners will be able to admire the Calibre 321 itself. It took two years of extensive research and reconstruction to bring this movement back to life, including the use of tomography (a digital scanning method) to see inside the true OMEGA Speedmaster worn by astronaut Eugene “Gene” Cernan during the Apollo 17 mission in 1972. Each of today’s new movements has been recreated to the authentic specifications of the original, and assembled within OMEGA’s dedicated Calibre 321 workshop. There’s perhaps no better way for watch fans to celebrate humankind’s most famous achievements beyond Earth.

DIESEL Introduces Virus-Fighting Denim


DIESEL introduces an ultra-innovative denim treatment that physically halts 99% of any viral activity. Developed in partnership with Swedish firm Polygiene, the innovative ViralOff® application - of which DIESEL retains a 100% exclusive on denim - will be implemented across a selection of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2021 denim styles, aiming at a greater range of products moving forward.  ViralOff® is the result of Polygiene’s extensive efforts in garment protection, which began with the SARS epidemic in the early 2000’s. DIESEL will apply the treatment to a selection of denim models during the final production stages. The technology is “always on,” and has the capacity to disable over 99% of viral activity within two hours of contact between pathogens and fabric. ViralOff® has shown efficacy against a comprehensive range of viruses, including COVID-19. It works by interacting with key proteins, inhibiting the virus from attaching to textile fibers.


Additionally, ViralOff® offers an extra sustainability benefit: the treatment lasts for the lifetime of the garment, and with lower wash cycle counts, the garment life is extended, and water and energy use are reduced. As part of its “For Successful Living” philosophy, Diesel remains deeply committed to researching and finding progressive solutions for its customers to live life at its best, from comfort to style, from ergonomics and trends to health and safety.
