Jimmy Choo Presents The Diamond Sneaker

Jimmy Choo brings you into the future of luxury sneakers with the Diamond sneaker; a women’s and men’s trainer that pushes the possibilities of traditional shoe construction by utilising modern innovations in performance materials and design to celebrate the festive season. The result is a next generation oversized sneaker that is a visual composite that sees the refined sportswear silhouette of a vintage racing shoe, superimposed into a Diamond-soled footprint. As old and new worlds collide, the familiar becomes unrecognisable. Step out of the then and leap into the now.

“Stepping in to a Jimmy Choo has always lifted the mood, igniting a sense of emotional transformation. For the debut deluxe Jimmy Choo sneaker we imagined how it would feel to step into a multi-faceted diamond, playing with the sense of lightness and clarity the different angles reflect. It was from this idea the Diamond sneaker was born.” Sandra Choi, Creative Director.

Throughout the product range, the Diamond sneaker showcases an inventive double sole construction, a flat classic sole attached to the upper as an inner shoe then encased in the first of its kind transparent diamond inspired sole developed and engineered in Italy. The sole takes inspiration from tank treads cored out at the key flex points to allow each shoe to be as functional and as flexible as it is striking.

Each Diamond sneaker design demands attention; the hero style is adorned in Swarovski® crystals for both men and women. Additional styles feature tonal leather in a palette of white and silver for women’s and amber, black and navy contrasted with white for Men’s as well as a limited edition sterling silver plated python.  This is tradition reconfigured, luxury redefined and sportswear elevated in Jimmy Choo’s script.

Glashütte Original Reveals The Magic of Winter

Glashütte Original introduces two exceptional timepieces from participate in the magic of this cold time of year. With cool elegance and the rich traditions of the German art of watchmaking, the Senator Cosmopolite, in shining stainless steel, and the sparkling PanoMatic Luna cast a spell on their admirers.  As richly facetted as an ice crystal, the Senator Cosmopolite proves the perfect companion for every journey. The timepiece represents uncompromising precision, whether leading its wearer home to a crackling fire, or to sun-splashed lands far away. Its sophisticated mechanics display the time of day in two time zones at once – taking Standard and Daylight Saving Time into account – in any of the world time zones currently in use. At its heart is the manufactory’s 89-02 automatic movement, a 4-Hz masterpiece assembled by hand from more than 400 individual components, with an off-centre rotor and a 72-hour power reserve.

This year’s new stainless steel model with dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap is the latest version to join the Senator Cosmopolite line, which debuted in 2015. Executed in the characteristic style of Glashütte Original, the clear design is reduced to its most essential elements. The dial design and layout of the displays make it a pleasure to check the time, even when it’s icy cold outside. Wintry colours – dark blue and white with detail accents in black – determine the overall look of the watch. An auxiliary dial framed in silver at 12 o’clock presents the home time and integrated power reserve. The characteristic Glashütte Original Panorama Date is at 4 o’clock, while two narrow windows at 8 o’clock are set harmoniously within the curve of the

They use IATA international airport codes in three colours to indicate the traveller’s destination. The 24 time zones that deviate from GMT by a full hour are each represented by an IATA code in black; an additional 8 with half-hour deviations present codes in blue, and the remaining three, each with a three-quarter hour offset from GMT, show an IATA code in red. Positioned at 9 o’clock is the newly designed day/night display with a small sun and stylised starry night sky. Like an ice-covered lake in the winter sun: the sparkling PanoMatic Luna Heavenly details are also the source of the PanoMatic Luna’s fascination. Its refined motherof- pearl dial recalls a frozen lake mirroring the clear winter sky. The beguiling, shimmering face of the watch is the product of elaborate hand-crafting in Glashütte Original’s own inhouse dial manufactory in Pforzheim, Germany. The Panorama Date at 4 o’clock and the intriguing moon phase at 2 o’clock, in which a diamond-cut silvery moon and stars shine from the night sky, also reveal the hand of the artist. The big date, although a characteristic feature of Glashütte Original, remains a rarity in a mechanical ladies’ watch. 83 diamonds totalling 1.09 carats lend the PanoMatic Luna the brilliance of ice crystals in the winter sun. Precisely 64 white brillant-cut diamonds adorn the finely polished, 39.4-mm stainless steel case. An additional 18 brillant-cut diamonds on the dial’s rod indexes take up this brilliance in an elegant fashion. The glittering ensemble is topped off by a large, 3 mm brilliant-cut diamond on the winding crown. A light blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle echoes the heavenly blue of the dial and rounds off the timepiece, which features the manufactory’s 90-12 automatic movement, with subtle grace.

RADO Presents RADO Designer Watches

 RADO Presents the RADO Designer Watches and held a pop-up exhibition at Dubai Design District during 2018 Dubai Design Week recently.

The Rado DiaMaster Ceramos collection
Simplicity is the key to brilliance. With the DiaMaster Ceramos collection, Rado has found the key and brilliance is present in every sense of the word: bright, ingenious and impressive. The classic DiaMaster good looks and clean design are present in both metallic looking models. But here, minimalism is taken to extremes with both the case and pared-down movement lending a streamlined look to a Rado favourite. Simple enough if you’re the master of materials. In place of the high-tech ceramic usually used to create DiaMaster cases, Rado has used its innovative wonder material, CeramosTM. A mix of 90% high-tech ceramic and 10% metal alloy, CeramosTM is injected at high pressure into a precision mould before being sintered to achieve its final hardness.

The combination of the high-tech ceramic and the metal alloy is putty in Rado’s hands and has allowed the brand, with its superior knowledge of high-tech materials, to create a steel colour and a new rose gold colour. With both finishes, the colourful sheen is a part of the material and will never fade or lose its shine. The steel colour may be cool and calm, but it’s an alternative to real steel that will retain its good looks for years to come. The rose gold colour is flattering to all skin tones and can be combined with other metals and jewellery without looking out of place. Simply brilliant, the slim new Rado DiaMaster Ceramos models are as minimalist as it gets.

The Rado True Face
Exclusive watch created in collaboration with Polish designer Oskar Zieta. The Rado True Face, co-created with innovative Polish architect Oskar Zieta, is a limited edition timepiece that combines Zieta’s signature reflective surfaces with the classic design and high-tech construction of the Rado True family. The Rado True Face is housed in matt grey high-tech ceramic, lending the timepiece versatile beauty and impressive scratch resistance in a lightweight package. The satinfinish neutral tone of the case and bracelet form a harmonious contrast with the centrepiece of the watch: the high-gloss metallic dial. Gently concave in structure, the dial consists of a disc of stainless steel that has been polished to achieve a mesmerizing reflective finish. The reflective properties of the dial are further maximized by the addition of an unexpected detail: The underside of the matt grey hands has been given a rose gold-coloured finish, allowing them to be reflected in a different hue.

The True Face is a natural continuation of Zieta’s other work with polished stainless steel: a series of perfectly polished mirrors and furniture entitled Plopp which, thanks to his experimental design approach, appear to have been blown up like a balloon. "I am working in many parallel spheres: science, architecture, furniture design and art," explains Zieta. “I’m always experiencing a lack of time, yet still needing it to create, aiming for something unique and timeless.” Zieta's passion for materials research made him a natural partner for Rado, a brand known for pioneering the use of materials such as hardmetal and high-tech ceramic in the watchmaking industry. "Since I use a bottom-up design approach that starts with materials, my objects can fully show off their material character," says Zieta. "The True Face has been made to be noticed and to exude respect for precious materials. These values create a positive connotation on the wrist."

The Rado DiaMaster Petite Seconde Automatic COSC 
The ‘Master of Materials’ label is one of which Rado is incredibly proud, and the quest for innovative combinations of materials continues as it strives to constantly chart new territory. Plasma high-tech ceramic is one such material whose use Rado pioneered and is a form of modern alchemy. The plasma carburising process allows the brand to create scratch-resistant high-tech ceramic with a metallic look without using metal. The colour won’t fade over time. Since it first appeared in 1998, it has become both a mainstay of the collection and inextricably linked with the Rado story - as well as playing a starring role on the case of the new 2018 DiaMaster Petite Seconde Automatic COSC. Only Rado has thought to combine scratch-resistant and durable plasma high-tech ceramic with a material known for its elasticity: silicon. It is this natural, light and hardwearing material placed at the heart of the new DiaMaster Petite Seconde in the form of the hairspring that has helped this new model achieve its enviable COSC certification for precision.

Obtaining COSC certification requires a movement to deviate less than -4/+6 seconds over a 24-hour period, a feat so rare it is only awarded to around 6% of Swiss-made timepieces. The silicon hairspring means the Petite Seconde automatic movement is more impervious to shocks and capable of greater accuracy over time, features essential for maintaining the utmost precision in a world where everyday interference can affect the performance of a watch. Not only is this watch in the top 6% of Swiss timepieces, it is also a watch that is guaranteed to stand out for its classic good looks. Featuring the typical clean, rounded 43 mm DiaMaster case and the open, clear and readable dial the line is know for, this is pure Rado. Topped off with gold coloured detailing and a soft leather crocodile print strap, in 2018 the DiaMaster Petite Seconde Automatic COSC is precisely what watch fans have been waiting for.

The Rado True Blaze
RADO also joined forces with in-demand American interior designer Sam Amoia – with glittering results. The new True Blaze features Amoia’s signature style housed in one of Rado’s most sought-after watch designs. Limited to 1001 pieces, the Rado True Blaze is a celebration of glitz and glamour. Housed in a 40 mm plasma high-tech ceramic case, the watch evokes a disco ball feeling on the wrist. The dial looks as though it were completely covered in a layer of silvery metallic slivers, giving the appearance of a glittery explosion. Despite this ostentatious element, the watch maintains a minimalist feel thanks to the unique placement of the gold-coloured logo and indexes: They are metallized directly on the underside of the glass, allowing them to float above the dial and creating an airy, spacious aesthetic.

The Rado True Blaze is an expression of Amoia's distinctive approach to design. His work draws heavily upon nature and materials, resulting in sculptural, highly tactile pieces that are layered with plaster and cement or encrusted with semiprecious stones. The latter approach is strongly reflected in the dial of the True Blaze. The dial’s textured metallic structure is created using a galvanic process that replicates the crystalline structure of diamond powder. "I wanted to create a simple but innovative piece. Something that reflects my aesthetic and personal design philosophy,” states Amoia, speaking about the inspiration behind the watch. “The result is an understated and innovative piece. Not of the traditional canon of watches but something more interesting and special, yet simple and timeless."

The Rado True Stratum
The Rado True Stratum, jointly developed with leading Austrian designer Rainer Mutsch. This exclusive timepiece sees Mutsch's trademark style housed inside Rado's popular True watch family. The black dial features delicate, asymmetrically arranged descending steps that emphasize the three dimensionality of the concave surface. Together with a slightly raised, oblong logo plate, these elements impart texture to what would otherwise be a plain monochrome dial. Matt rhodium hour and minute hands and a yellow second hand provide a pop of colour as well as easy readability. Further depth is added to the design with a perfectly centered black dot metallized on the underside of the sapphire crystal, which hovers over and casts its shadow on the dial. The True Stratum features matt black surfaces that are crafted in high-tech ceramic – Rado's signature material, and one that is favoured among high-end
watchmakers for its exceptional properties.

"From an industrial design point of view, I believe the tactile experience in terms of touching and feeling is very important," says Mutsch. "So for the True Stratum I have chosen hightech ceramic for the case and bracelet since I really like the feel, the scratch resistance and the temperature of this material." To emphasize that a watch is a wearable piece of technology, Mutsch introduced a small sapphire glass window on the back of the case, which gives the wearer a glimpse of the automatic movement within. The engraved surface of the dial is repeated on the back, creating a pleasant and comfortable feeling on the wrist.

Much of Mutsch's design practice centers around explorations of new materials and production techniques. While his work does not commit to any particular style or shape, his approach is informed by elegance, precision and simplicity. “In the case of the True Stratum I was playing with materiality, manufacturing processes and the idea of ambient light,” comments Mutsch. “I was trying to re-question, in a subtle way, how time is displayed by introducing an element of three-dimensionality on the dial. The appearance of the dial changes constantly depending on the light, always creating new reflections and gradients.”

Hermès Presents The Tale of Petit h In Hong Kong

 Hermès presents a workshop of metamorphosis for materials and the invention of forms themed <The take of petit h> from now on till 9th December. From a giant elephant pouffe to a target mirror, the Landmark Price's store is transformed with scenography designed by Hong Kong artist Kevin Cheung.

Once upon a time, there was a meeting of materials, their inimitable mix, their singular hybridisation. Petit h shares with upcycling product designer Kevin Cheung a passion for slumbering materials, from bamboo to silk, cashmere and many more.

The staging is inspired by daily life and everyday objects. A tree and its bubble-like buds unfurl across the three levels of the store where new petit h inventions appear, paying homage to the diversity of Hermès materials and know-how, and to the dreams that take shape during our daily lives.

Petit h was founded in 2010 by Pascal Mussard, who had the idea of bringing leftover materials from all over the house under one roof and giving them new life through Hermès craftsmanship and know-how.

Godfroy de Virieu, creative director since January 2018, is now leading the dialouge vetween artisans (saddler-leatherworkers, gold and silversmiths, glassmakers, couturiers, etc.) and designers and artists from all backgrounds.

Together, they create dreamlike, palyful, poetic and surprising objects from noble materials as either unique pieces or limited editions. Peti h travels across the world pop-up sales events. Nevertheless, Paris remains its permanant home, in the Hermès store at 17 rue de Sèvres, as well as Hermes.com
