Moncler opened its archives and has formally redefined the iconic duvet to create a contemporary version of the brand's incomparable garment for the AW2016/17 season. The ambassadors for this new creative adventure are Mr. & Mrs. Moncler, a contemporary “virtual” couple who underline the double-sided concept behind the collection. Mr. & Mrs. Moncler represent a significant new design step in the French-Italian brand's wide product range. In an age when social networking has totally redefined and opened the borders of communication, when everything revolves around digital technology, the couple ironically represent a cross between rolemodels and cartoons, with a touch of 1960s retro cyber-sporty style mixed with that of a social media addict.
The result is a true crossroads, a surprising blend of heritage and youthful modern culture inspiring the transformation of the original duvet, which has managed to keep its vintage appeal while exuding the energy of youthful contemporary styles and attitudes. The star of the collection is the nylon laque down jacket, an essential part of the Moncler tradition. The color palette boasts strong deep colors, like burgundy, shiny midnight blue, English green and black. The collection's special tags depict Mr. & Mrs. Moncler and serve to set the garments in this special project apart from the other clothes on display in the boutiques.
Zenith sponsored and held an Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 2016, in which smartly dressed men and women straddled the saddles of their motorcycles from Big Wave Bay to Kennedy Town to raise awareness and help raise funds for the cure for prostate cancer recently.
Founded in 2012 by Mr. Mark Hawwa, Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) is a global charity event inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s actor sitting astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit.
The themed ride aims to combat the often negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, and to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health programs of its charity partner Movember Foundation. With continuously increasing support from riders all over the world, DGR has become a popular and significant annual event.
Founded in 1865, Zenith manufactured one of the first automatic chronograph movements. For more than 150 years, Zenith has continued to create beautiful hand-crafted watches that are produced entirely in-house.
Already the official timekeeper of Tour Optic 2000, WinterRaid and Sportscar Vintage Racing Association, Zenith is now the sponsor of DGR, and the Zenith Pilot Ton-up DGR Special Edition is launched in celebration of this meaningful movement.
Mr. Aldo Magada, Chief Executive Officer of Zenith, remarked, “It is with much delight that we support this great initiative. DGR and Zenith share common values related to style and passion for mechanics, in which are perfectly reflected in Zenith’s timepieces.”
MIU MIU releases the AW2016 “FOUND NARRATIVES” VIDEO campaign video features actress Amanda Seyfried and a group of women exploring the impressive estate of Houghton Hall. The group of ladies are seen pretending to be playing a variety of games, from Badminton to Croquet, at times making us question the veracity of the mise-en-scene. Indeed, there is a sense of make belief in the different scenarios and the different roles each character is playing; a caricaturesque maid for instance is seen playing along the ladies of the house and wearing extravagant jewelry. The sounds used in the video also add to this impression, each action emphasized by hyper-realistic sound effects. The result is a modern take on a classic British countryside scene, seen through the inimitable Miu Miu gaze.
For over fifty years, Kiehl’s chemists have identified the unique requirements and challenges of men’s skin. It is with this legacy that Kiehl’s introduces Age Defender for Men. This simple yet effective trio includes a serum, moisturizer and eye cream to help protect men’s skin from the rapid onset of the signs of aging. The collection’s star product is the Age Defender Power Serum, which represents Kiehl’s first-ever serum architecture for men. It is an ultra-light, yet highly effective formula that absorbs easily into the skin and features Cypress Extract, Hydrolyzed Proteins and Adenosine, to help visibly firm sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles for a more youthful, resilient appearance. In a clinical test, the serum was demonstrated to improve nasolabial wrinkles by 15%, and skin radiance by nearly 14% after 8 weeks of use. In consumer testing, 94% reported an improvement in the appearance of skin texture after 2 weeks and nearly 93% agreed their skin appeared more resilient and elastic after 8 weeks of product use. Then the Age Defender Moisturizer utilizes dual-action technology to exfoliate skin while delivering the potency of vitamin-rich Linseed Extract. It reinforces the actives in the Power Serum and improves the elasticity and firmness of skin. And the collection’s Eye Repair formula, featuring Rye Seed Extract, instantly brightens the appearance of dark circles, as well as smooths and firms skin to improve the appearance of crow’s feet and under eye bags to complete the regimen. This collection works to strengthen and visibly firm skin, plus minimize the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles to reveal more resilient, energized and youthful looking complexion within a simple anti-aging regimen.
