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the iconic Lady Dior, revisited in matte leather, and the new home must-have , the 30 Montaigne bag, presented in an unpublished version in crushed lamb leather, with a vintage effect.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.

DIOR Presents The J'ADIOR PUMPS Savoir-Faire

 For her Fall 2019 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri reinvents the J’Adior pumps anew. The style's emblematic white "J'Adior" ribbon adorns, like a trim, the topline of black shoes that are themselves fully embroidered.

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.

lebua - The First In Thailand Declined World’s 50 Best Restaurants Award

While (many) others are salivating and having an appetite for receiving any credible restaurant awards from around the globe for where they have excelled in their culinary art manifestation and being recognized for their gastronomy capability, Deepak Ohri, the Chief Executive Officer of lebua in Bangkok has no hesitation to think twice to decline the inclusion presented by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants during the 2019 annual awards ceremony held recently. mylifestylenews writes.



lebua is renowned for its “On Top of The World” roof top dining and Bangkok’s pioneer Skybar that offers an unforgettable experience with breathtaking views of the city and beyond and the world’s first luxury vertical destination with acclaimed restaurants and bars, for every occasion is unforgettable and every moment is award-winning with lebua. With the refusal of declining the inclusion or any other association with World’s 50 best Restaurants, Ohri doubted in his comments that many restaurants dining awards aren’t fit or credible for what it takes, especially when it comes to the fine dining category. This year, the rules have been overhauled and the standard of voting and judging differs from the past by encouraging more diversity in the worlds finest restaurants elected by a panel of culinary experts and gender balance, despite the criticism that they already faced in previous years.


Dream big and Ohri has never stopped striving to bring the food & beverage scene to new heights of luxury since he inherited the 60-story plus golden dome lebua skyscraper in 2003. Ohri’s larger-than-life vision also focuses on the temptation of luxury and indulgence pervades the air as your every personal and professional need is attended to with unwavering, unobtrusive service, which makes for a timeless and elegant statement, as well as that recognized luxury experience. Perhaps this may not be the sort of award that Ohri would like to be recognized for, or to be included as an extra add-on to lebua’s accolades, but he does await to be acquainted with some other eminent and distinguished organizations. Will there be others to follow Ohri’ s footsteps in declining any discredited awards without any contradiction? We shall see what comes next.

JAEGER-LECOULTRE Celebrates Cinema @ The 76TH Venice International Film Festival Of La Biennale di Venezia

 Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrated the 15th anniversary of its partnership with Venice International Film Festival by hosting an intimate dinner in the exceptional setting of the Granai di Cipriani. Set between sea and sky on the island of Giudecca, with stunning views across the Lagoon to Piazza San Marco, the fairytale location perfectly expresses the Celestial theme chosen by the Swiss Maison this year. Paying homage to the stars and planets that have always determined how mankind measures time, the celestial theme is also a loving tribute to the star-studded night sky above Jaeger-LeCoultre’s home in Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux. Hosted by Catherine Rénier, Chief Executive Officer of Jaeger-LeCoultre, guests from all over the world were joined by Friends of the Maison Nicholas Hoult, Amanda Seyfried, Ni Ni and Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi, to pay tribute to great cinema and honour the art of time.


In an ambience of great charm and refinement, they witnessed the unveiling of four beautiful new watches inspired by the stars of the night sky. A beautiful, fully gem-set interpretation of the Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon combines the icy sparkle of diamonds with the warmth of pink gold and glowing mother of pearl; its sumptuous bracelet is set with white diamonds, linked seamlessly together to wrap around the wrist as softly as a ribbon.


Inspired by the otherworldly beauty of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), two new interpretations of the splendid Rendez-Vous Celestial watch unite two of the Metiers Rares® that Jaeger-LeCoultre has so thoroughly mastered – gem-setting, and hand-painting.


A glittering bezel set with a colour-graduated circle of baguette-cut sapphires surrounds a mother-of-pearl dial that has been hand-painted to echo the ethereal patterns of the Aurora Borealis.


In addition, Jaeger-LeCoultre has reinterpreted its magnificent Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Céleste, with a sleek new-generation case and subtle refinement of the dial. While appearing to have been simplified, the dial has in fact gained an extra dimension thanks to the use of Super-LumiNova™, which gives a heavenly glow to the hour markers and constellations in low light.


For this special celebration of the arts of cinema and fine watchmaking, Michelin-starred chef Christian Le Squer, of Restaurant Le Cinq in Paris, flew to Venice and created a special menu to complement the celestial theme and capture the beauty of the setting. Thanks to the many values it shares with the art of filmmaking, Jaeger-LeCoultre is deeply attached to the world of cinema and, through its long-standing partnership with the Venice International Film Festival, is proud to contribute to the appreciation and advancement of the cinematic arts.


Dior x Jennifer Lawrence Fall 2019 Advertising Campaign

Maria Grazia Chiuri chose a Marc Bohan dress with geometric motifs as the starting point for this fall 2019 collection. It represents the reinterpretation for Dior of a dress designed for Françoise Hardy by Sonia Delaunay. This great 20th-century artist expressed herself through the applied arts, in the creation of fabrics, clothing and objects. “All [my] works were made for women, and all were constructed in relation to the body. They were not copies of paintings transposed on to women’s bodies.” she said, to define an aspect of her work.


The Creative Director has explored new production techniques, in the form of experimental craftsmanship based around felt and hypnotic geometric motifs, which mixes colors and materials, and is illustrated by a series of coats. She celebrates traditional savoir-faire – such as that of Salento, in the south of Italy, her beloved region – today largely overlooked because of the level of dedication and time it require. It captures all the creativity of women artisans and, gathered within this collection, is an emotional conduit.


In Paris, the capital of the avant-garde and fashion, Sonia Delaunay headed a group of women evoked by the feminist art historian Rozsika Parker, in her work Subversive Stitch: Embroidery and the Making of the Feminine. Alongside Sonia Delaunay were Anni Albers and other female talents who would bring from Russia a wealth of savoir-faire that led to the establishment of several ateliers in Paris.


The French capital was also where Diana Vreeland spent her childhood, which was to be marked by the impact of the Ballets Russes: “Of course, so much was the influence of Diaghilev. The flavor, the extravagance, the allure, the excitement, the passion, the smash, the clash, the crash . . . this man smashed the atom!” she wrote.


Today, in the same spirit of Parisian creativity, Maria Grazia Chiuri revisits the emblematic forms of the Dior heritage by using craft techniques to shape new codes. Tulle isembroidered to sensory effect in tonal harmonies ranging from brick red to fir green, yellow and powdered pink. Atypical hues for the Creative Director, they are used for geometric lace skirts and dresses.


Maria Grazia Chiuri conceived a space embodied by the atelier that maintains the fragile balance between time that’s required and that which is imposed. The revolutionary practice of embroidery and applied arts is a way for women to make their voices heard and to construct their own identities. The result is a representation of the creative tension that is constantly being felt between conformity and subversion.
