Yuima Nakazato AW2019 Couture Runway Show - mylifestylenews Top 10's Pick

Yuima Nakazato has been striving to realize a future vision for humanity in which "Eventually, each and every garment will be unique and different".

His quest for the pursuit of this radical idea, this democratization of haute couture, began in 2016.

Upon rendezvous with Spiber and THE EUGENE studio, the journey begins anew.

Fashion, science, and art - a trio of disparate elements that speak to a shared spirit, to a belief in the potential of realizing a future full of hope. 

The fusion of these three domains by Yuima Nakazato, Spiber, and THE EUGENE Studio leads to a journey expanded in scope and rife with possibilities. 

For the past half year, they have traveled between Tokyo, Yamagata, and Paris to expand this collection from its core concept, all the while considering the path that humanity should walk moving forward.

The inspiration we received from each location spans nature, culture, history, and cuttingedge technology.

They believe that success in establishing a new relationship between humans and clothing will lead to a more plentiful, auspicious world.

The collection today presented in the city of Paris with the hope that it may serve as the first step toward such a future; not as merely another step on the path that humanity has trod thus far, but a step, in fact, taken in an entirely new direction.

OMEGA Celebrates The 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 With The Golden Astronaut In Hong Kong

OMEGA is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of history’s first lunar landing, a moment when its iconic Speedmaster chronograph became the first watch worn on the moon. To commemorate the occasion, the OMEGA astronaut that visited Hong Kong in 2017 has now returned with a new golden look - and he has grown to 3.5m in height! The Golden Astronaut can be seen at Tai Kwun on Hollywood Road recently.

Prior to its unveiling in Tai Kwun, the Golden Astronaut made a tour of the picturesque Victoria Harbour to enjoy the magical backdrop of the Hong Kong skyline. The Apollo 11 mission is certainly the most celebrated moment in OMEGA’s considerable space heritage. On the 21st of July 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the lunar surface, marking an incredible milestone in human history and space exploration. It was during this iconic moment that the OMEGA Speedmaster Professional became the first watch worn on the moon.

In fact, the OMEGA Speedmaster remains the only wristwatch ever to be successfully qualified by NASA for all manned space flights. After passing 11 intensive tests, it served on many historic spaceflights, including every Apollo mission and all six moon landings. After its iconic status was gained, the words “FLIGHT-QUALIFIED BY NASA FOR ALL MANNED SPACE MISSIONS” and “THE FIRST WATCH WORN ON THE MOON” were seen etched onto the caseback of every OMEGA Speedmaster sold. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing, OMEGA has also produced two new Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition timepieces. This includes a full gold model limited to 1,014 pieces, as well as a stainless steel and gold model limited to 6,969 pieces.

These two watches are crafted using 18K Moonshine™ Gold – an exclusive new alloy whose colour is inspired by the shining moonlight in a dark blue sky. The designs are replete with lunar history as well as modern materials and a superb new movement: OMEGA's Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 - a manual-winding OMEGA Co-Axial escapement movement. In addition to the 3.5m Golden Astronaut display at Tai Kwun, OMEGA has introduced an Augmented Reality experience, allowing visitors to place the Golden Astronaut anywhere in the real world.


LONGCHAMP AW2019 Runway Collection - mylifestylenews Top 10's Pick

LONGCHAMP AW2019 Runway Collection is a voyage of self-discovery and independence. For her second show at New York Fashion Week, Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine captures the free-spirited energy of travelers, women who rove the globe with a rock 'n' roll attitude and a wardrobe to match.

Particular focus is placed on the distance between Paris and New York, which is visualized with a runway inspired by Andrée Putman and the carpet she designed for the Concorde and a 40-look collection combines the distinct auras of these transatlantic cities.

The Parisian woman’s effortless femininity is realized in billowy silk dresses and pleated skirts in embroidered tulle or wool gauze.

They are juxtaposed with crisp black leather tops and architectural coats that are made from graphic or Apaloosa prints indicative of New York’s urbanity. 

Even the details, like grosgrain ribbons with vivid silver studs, are a seamless blend of elegance and a rock edge.

This melding of contrasts, this mixing and matching of textures, silhouettes and patterns gives each look a sense of individuality and dynamism. These attributes culminate in pieces that feature LGP, the new signature print for the over 70-year-old Longchamp.

Inspired by Bauhaus artists and New York’s maze-like grid plan, LGP is dispersed throughout the line, giving an assortment of jackets and separates a greater sense of big-city cool.

It is especially prominent on the brand’s new handbag collection, La Voyageuse. Modeled after portable vanity cases, La Voyageuse compact silhouette imbues a ladylike charm and, as the name suggests, serves as a perfect companion for traveling. It also comes in a large size for long distances and a foldable version ideal for those constantly on the go.

This energy is also evident in shoes that walk the line between graphic and feminine. Patchwork and vibrant python-printed leather are cast on platform boots in thigh-high and ankle lengths. There are also black biker boots that add edge to flirty, psychedelic dresses and skirts. The qualities in the collection speak to wanderlust, to strong women with enthusiasm that fearlessly combine styles to create a look all their own. They are forever in motion, restless in their pursuit of new experiences. It typifies every woman, the Longchamp woman.

Dior AW2019/20 Advertising Campaign

Dior unveils Maria Grazia Chiuri’s AW2019/20 ready-to-wear collection, inspired by the rebellious elegance and creative audacity of the Teddy Boys’ Teddy Girls, counterparts of the English culture. In front of the objective of Brigitte Niedermair, the models Selena Forrest and Ruth Bell embody the committed spirit of these creations.

On the occasion of her first campaign for the House, the Italian photographer - whose staging with graphic power gives life to fascinating diversions - imagined an artistic dialogue between past and present, figurative and art of purity.  His contemporary look sublimates, through a game of curves and abstractions, the icons of the Dior style.

A veritable ode to sorority, this series of shots outlines the contours of an affirmed femininity, like the silkscreen T-shirts Sisterhood is Global and Sisterhood is Powerful, which pay homage to the literary works of the American feminist poet Robin Morgan. Like a modern echo in the 1950s and the silhouette of the New Look, the Bar jacket has been redesigned in a more masculine line, highlighted by belts evoking the iconic curves of the Saddle bag.

The latter, declined denim punctuated with the Dior Oblique pattern, is revealed alongside the Dior Book Tote and Diorcamp, both dressed in gingham, the iconic Lady Dior, revisited in matte leather, and the new home must-have , the 30 Montaigne bag, presented in an unpublished version in crushed lamb leather, with a vintage effect.

A standard of British culture dear to Christian Dior, the tartan meets the toile de Jouy and the leopard, fetish codes of the couturier-founder. A statement of elegance according to Dior, punctuated with precious couture accessories, where shoes and heels, with small heels, pearls and sunglasses hemmed with crystals, rub shoulders with the reversible veil bobs created by Stephen Jones, the British hatter of the House.

MACKAGE Opens Asia First Flagship @ Hong Kong K11 MUSEA

 MACKAGE, a high-end luxury outerwear brand from Montreal, Canada opened its first Asia flagship at K11 MUSEA in Hong Kong by celebrating the brand’s 20th anniversary. Inspired by his brothers’ experience in the leather industry, Eran Elfassy founded MACKAGE in 1999. Two years later, Elisa Dahan joined him and, together, they developed one of the most prestigious contemporary outerwear brands worldwide. Their mission was clear: to elevate outerwear with a unique balance between fashion and function.

The new flagship brings the brand’s unique modern ski chalet concept to K11 MUSEA in the heart of Hong Kong’s Victoria Dockside. Stepping into the 153-square-meter space, subtle sculptural references to snow and ice are expressed in noble materials to resemble a warm cocoon from the elements. The black Nero Marquina herringbone floor and splashes of white Statuario marble add a quiet sophistication to the gallery of collections, while the striking aqua-green hues of Alex Cornell’s Flipped Iceberg flood the space with warmth.

The store features exclusive installments of polished stainless-steel panels and oversized mirrors, bringing modern sophistication which complement the artistic essence of K11 MUSEA. Outside, the wall façade transforms into a one-of-a-kind artistic creation that mimics the elegance and edge of iceberg formations.

“MACKAGE was created around the belief that outerwear is an integral element of fashion. When the weather calls for layering, a coat isn’t just part of an outfit-- it becomes the outfit itself.” – MACKAGE's Co-Chief Creative Officers Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan

MACKAGE collections combine the finest leather, down, and wool with tailored silhouettes and precision detail. Over the past two decades, MACKAGE has become the outerwear of choice for many international celebrities, including Duchess Meghan Markle, supermodel Gigi Hadid, Golden Globe Winner Emily Blunt, actress Emma Watson, singer Madonna, and actor Zac Efron, who have all been spotted in the brand’s signature V-trim down jackets, wool coats, and leather jackets.

“As a unique cultural-retail destination, K11 MUSEA is devoted to bringing multiple new experiences, which is exactly what we pursue. Together, we look forward to instilling vitality and surprises for our customers in Hong Kong and rest of Asia.” – MACKAGE's Co-Chief Creative Officers Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan

The MACKAGE flagship at K11 MUSEA crafts an intimate shop experience that reflects its visionary spirit and marks a milestone for the brand as it becomes a global luxury outerwear destination in the new cultural-retail landmark for Hong Kong and rest of Asia.
