FENDI Timepieces Unveils Policromia

A voyage through time from the mysterious myth to the future, Policromia is  the new exclusive Fendi Timepieces watch designed in collaboration with Delfina Delettrez Fendi, globally renowned jewelry designer. The name Policromia origins from the Greek words  poly (multiple) and khrôma (colors), embodying the idea of several colors together, with a mystic reminder to a surreal Goddess living in a far world.

  
A combination of colors on different surfaces, multiple shaded pieces, precious inserts and asymmetrical bezels made in noble materials, create the watch’s daring silhouette with a unique 3D effect, enhancing the importance of time, innovation and evolution of the watch’s design. The natural elements and materials, a play of stratifications and geometries celebrate Rome and its eternal magnetism in a whispered way. The  layers are mixed-up in a play of full and empty volumes, recalling Palazzo Della Civiltà Italiana, the FENDI Headquarters in Rome, and its unique arches with the light shining through them setting time in a unique and surprising way. Elegant ellipses create surfaces overlapping on the dial inspired by the architectural structure of the city of Rome with its street, the viae of the Roman Empire.

The accurate selection of precious mineral stones, like malachite, one of the signatures of Delfina Delettrez Fendi’s universe, perfectly merges in the Policromia watch giving it an hypnotic power. Natural patterns look repeated while being at the same time all different, creating an illusion of time passing like a luxury time gate. A unique aesthetics, elegant yet conceptual with a surrealistic twist perfectly combines with the FENDI DNA. The FENDI Policromia Watches Collection features twenty models of watches, each showcasing different precious elements of haute joaillerie. Brilliant cut white diamonds set the time on the case and dial, paired with refined inserts of real stones malachite and green mother of pearl, or lapis lazuli and blue mother-of-pearl. White and yellow gold add their timeless value enhanced by black rhodium-plated yellow gold.


The Swiss watchmaking expertise is revealed in the highest care for each detail in the making-of and finishing phases, from the Swiss-made movement to the distinctive polishing and azurage on the case and dial. The FENDI highest craftsmanship is unveiled in the genuine alligator straps handmade in the Roman Maison’s ateliers in Italy, and finished with 18 kt gold buckles. A cyborg attitude and Greek echoes perfectly meet together in Policromia, blending tradition and innovation, values dear to FENDI, while attracting with its vibes a self-confident woman looking for the highest sophistication.


Hermès Opens In Wynn Palace Macau

 Hermès celebrates the opening of its new store at Wynn Palace Mall, in Cotai. The Parisian house’s fourth address in Macau totals 267 square metres of sales area. RDAI, the Parisian architectural agency under the artistic direction of Denis Montel, has been responsible for the design and creation of the space, as for all Hermès stores worldwide.


The monochrome angled façade in warm dark brown contrasts with Wynn Palace’s rich setting and catches the light. Two large show windows are inscribed as suspended boxes giving lightness.


Past each one of the store’s two doors, visitors are greeted by Hermès Ex-Libris emblem on the floor, the iconic “Grecques” lights specially designed for Hermès and a combination of warm and soft colour tones from the matt oak wood floor, beige silk and brick fabric walls as well as a burnt orange carpet. Hermès feminine silk and fashion jewellery are in the centre of this first area surrounded by Art de Vivre and leather bags and small leather goods. To the left and back of the store is the men’s universe and, to the right, the women’s universe, both hosting ready-to-wear, shoes, belts, hats and other accessories. Between these two universes are the watches and jewellery space and the equestrian and perfume collections which complete the discovery.


A unique line of seating titled “Shanghai” exclusively designed by RDAI for Hermès includes benches in caramel leather for the women and men’s areas providing customers with the upmost comfort. The constant requirement for the finest quality has always been the quest of Hermès.


Roger Vivier FW2016 Limited Edition Collection

To mark the beginning of Roger Vivier’s powerful and sensual FW2016 collection, the Maison has designed a series of Hong Kong Limited Editions Sneaky Viv’, Round Belle Ballerine and Belle Vivier Trompette to take the Parisienne to a dimension of luxury and elegance.


 When two legends meet, the sparks can be dazzling. The Sneaky Viv’ on one hand there is the  embellished buckle, the emblem of Roger Vivier. On the other is a sport shoe, the skateboarders' icon. Sneaky Viv’ is a striking contrast between its casual spirit and the extreme sophistication.


As flexible as they are comfortable, the Round Belle Bellerine is beautifully revealing yet elegantly round, Roger Vivier's ballet flats go wherever you go. The new round Buckle adapted from the house's archives confers a timeless frivolity.


The sober lines of the Belle Vivier Trompette with sharp edges that give a shoe the sophisticated town look. Fitted with the buckle with sharper lines and a more tapered look, Belle Vivier recalls those absolute silhouettes of the iconic Parisian women.
