BRIONI x Brad Pitt presents the AW2020 ‘Tailoring Legends’ advertising campaign. The intimate, black and white portraits lensed by photographer Mikael Jansson, feature the Academy Award Winner showcasing his personal and laidback interpretation of the Brioni style.
For an exceptional look, the 42 mm case is crafted in platinum-gold, with a platinum-gold plate on its side, engraved with each Numbered Edition number. The same beautiful material is also used for the polished-brushed buckle of the watch’s black leather strap. More unique details can be uncovered throughout the design, including a black ceramic bezel ring with a platinum diving scale in positive relief, as well as a black enamel dial, which has been given a spiralling gun-barrel design in 18K white gold.
As part of the OMEGA James Bond collection that was launched last year, this watch also includes a hidden number 50 within the Super-LumiNova of the 10 o’clock index - a reference to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Elsewhere on the dial, you can find a 007 logo at 7 o’clock on the white enamel minute track, as well as 18K white gold features, including the hands, indexes and Bond family coat-of-arms at 12 o’clock. Turning the watch over reveals a second Bond family coat-of-arms, which has been laser-engraved and filled with platinum on the sapphire crystal caseback. Its captivating final effect is completed with hand-engraved finishing in the finest detail. Through the glass, you can spy the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 – certified at the highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance. Finally, for fans who are able to obtain this Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition, it comes presented in its own Globe-Trotter™ suitcase, bound by NATO-inspired straps. Inside, an additional black rubber strap is included.
Maison Perrier Jouët has been guided by a love of nature since it established in 1811. Its founders, Pierre Nicolas Perrier and Rose Adélaïde Jouët, were renowned for their keen interest in botany and for their progressive ideas on natural viticulture, which were taken up by succeeding generations. Today, nature remains at the very heart of the House, and has provided the inspiration for a new, fully recyclable collection of gift boxes for its classic, non vintage champagnes. The result of two years’ research and development, the new gift boxes merge an elegant, minimalist aesthetic with a focus on sustainability. Designed and manufactured in France, they are produced from 100% natural fibre, sourced from certified forests in Northern Europe, and are nearly 30% (55 g) lighter than the previous versions. Advanced embossing techniques are used to minimise the consumption of ink, which is water based and free from mineral oils. As a result, the new designs are not only fully recyclable, but also more easily recyclable, owing to their minimal use of secondary materials. Simultaneously, Maison Perrier Jouët will adopt new, eco designed shipping cases, produced from recycled and grass paper, which are also 100% recyclable.
This change has been accomplished without compromising on Maison Perrier Jouët’s signature elegance and attention to detail. Inspired by the chalky subsoil of Champagne, the new gift boxes are pure, matte white and are embossed all over with an intricate motif recalling the House’s legendary anemones. The only colour is reserved for the oval cartouche, echoing the shape of the bottle label, which bears the name of each cuvée: green for Perrier Jouët Grand Brut, pink for Perrier Jouët Blason Rosé, gold for Perrier Jouët Blanc de Blancs. The symbiotic relationship with nature which Maison Perrier Jouët has maintained for more than two centuries has intensified in recent years, taking the form of a sincere, ethical and lasting commitment and concrete actions. The launch of the new gift box collection which will be rolled out worldwide from 1 July 2020 represents the latest stage of the House’s ongoing efforts to reduce its impact on nature. In line with this objective, which extends from the vineyard to the finished product, the entire gifting offer will be sustainable by 2022.

Roger Vivier 2020/21 秋冬系列的巴黎發佈會，讓我們再次進入由創意總監Gherardo Felloni為品牌精心打造的Hotel Vivier私人豪宅魅惑夢鄉。Felloni以一個概念化的主題，將夢中幻想的wonderland化爲現實，帶領著到訪的賓客踏上一場感官世界之旅，去親身體驗一場前所未有的Sensorama 感官盛宴，實實在在地去感受一個可被感知的夢幻新世界，享受色、香、味、形、器的時刻精彩。
Felloni俏皮個性兼好玩的概念創作，往往要你有意想不到的驚喜和體驗，而每一次都不重施故技，可一不可再。好玩正是王道，同時又不吝嗇地付諸於其設計的作品上，標新立異的構思，性格出衆的設計，要你穿出自我的真個性。真實個性的Felloni卻和其創作相反，謙卑有禮和羞澀，今次Sensorama的設局，在到訪者探索新系列的同時，更為他們帶來所見、所聽、所聞以至味覺及觸感的多方位感知體驗。Felloni說：「對我而言，Sensorama是由感官激發大腦所帶來的靈感，Sensorama其實就是感覺，以及將這些感覺與靈感聯繫在一起。」 沒錯，有些創作，不用疑惑，亦無需費時去理解，JUST FEEL IT!
Sensorama在Hotel Vivier内以不同趣怪的主題去展示秋2020/21冬季系列的鞋履和配飾，同時更以鮮豔的獨立主色去突出每一個空間的主題裝置，實行要艷麗到底。從第一間我們進入的嗅覺實驗室中，純白色的蕨葉牆被檸檬黃的射燈照亮，仿如置身於愛麗絲的仙境之中；而置於透明鐘形玻璃蓋下的Roger Vivier鞋履秀色可餐；與此同時，在女演員的帶領下，為你揭盅，薄荷或櫻桃香氣緩緩升起，要你細聞著帶有氣味的Roger Vivier鞋履，用芳香令你沉醉於細緻回憶中。
為了探索對聲音的感知，賓客將會被邀請到錄製ASMR聲音兼以藍色色調為主題的錄音室中，聽著低沉的哼唱與回聲而達致身心鬆弛，可細心地觀賞Felloni為今季設計的鞋履。接下來去探索的則是一間鋪滿粉紅色紋理布料，充分刺激著觸覺的房間。在這裡，穿著最新一季Roger Vivier的大頭“貓咪”人身模特兒交際花正在凡爾賽宮準備舉辦一場「巴羅克藝」的盛宴，延續Hotel Vivier的夢幻“履”程。
在最終一個金碧輝煌的房間裡，味覺將由年輕的巴黎頂級廚師徹底喚醒，味蕾將經歷一場美妙盛宴。美食家為賓客精心製作著佳餚的同時，一個巨型生日蛋糕悄然而至，蛋糕之上一位迷人的演唱家以悅耳的歌聲，柔柔輕彈淺唱，氣氛抒懷動人。在第一時間觀賞最新一季的設計，同時間可品嘗美饌。 除了這些主題房間之外，Sensorama還展示了新的裝置藝術品，如穿著Vivier Queen涼鞋的巨型高聳雕塑，更是不能錯過的打卡位。

Powerful, mysterious and unexpected, the snake has established itself as a jewellery icon of BVLGARI since the 1960s, evolving into countless playful interpretations through the eras. From the early colourful inspirations to the latest glamorous versions, BVLGARI’s spirit animal has become the ultimate symbol of opulence and charm. Sophisticated and refined, bold and colourful, voluptuous and seductive: BVLGARI Serpenti jewellery and timepiece collections revive the exuberance of the Roman Dolce Vita, blending the highest Italian craftsmanship with the Maison's daring attitude.
Worn alone or in combination with other BVLGARI jewels, Serpenti jewellery and timepiece creations are a statement of contemporary elegance and daring charisma. Capturing the snake’s innate power of attraction, the collection’s spellbinding and sophisticated design makes the jewelled creature even more captivating, intensifying the allure of the ones who wear it. Serpenti collection is the highest expression of BVLGARI’s unique artistry: nestled against one another, the snake’s scales are not joined by soldering but are carefully hinged together, allowing each piece to coil around its wearer as the animal itself would. Made for women who rule with her alluring charm, the Serpenti jewellery and timepiece collection are manifested with dazzling creations. From Serpenti Viper stackable jewels to showstopping statement pieces like Serpenti Tubogas watch, each creation captures the exuberance of the Eternal City and the glamorous power of Serpenti women.
