Paris FW x Haute Couture

During Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture, on Tuesday, July 3,

Maison des Centraliens has hosted three young designers with their Fall- Winter Collections 2018-2019:

 

ABE by Ariane Chaumeil Jewelry  “Miroir”

There is magic and mystery in a mirror : the reflexion of who looks into it is real, but reversed.  Since we gaze at ourselves, all fantasies become possible and brings us back to face each other, and to what the world has to face. As a two-way mirror, you can see without being seen. Step through and find out with this collection, and the part of your soul using your imagination, whether it is dark or whether radiant…

The fall winter collection of the ABE by Ariane Chaumeil house, whose crafting remains done with the blowtorch glass, becomes richer with a new proposition: the metal paste making. Sculpted and cast, the metal paste is modelled, sanded, fired at high temperature, brushed and rubbed with a burnisher and polished several times in order to get pieces of golden and white bronze, and of pure copper, with a shiny, ancient rendering.

 

A couture collection by  designer Armine Ohanyan

A couture collection made in France, entirely handmade, intimately inspired by nature, showing the natural elements in all their forms. Ice, crystallization, rain, wind, dew and roots. Crystallized in these surroundings, the Human Being becomes Nature. The Nature is everlasting, nothing can stop it. It is the true beauty, perfection. For depicting this cycle of evolution, Armine Ohanyan uses the new technologies such as 3D printing or materials crafting, which play an important role in her creation process. Her art investigations never end, like the movement that she shows in its different forms and their ranges of colours and materials. Her creations are futuristic, modern, with a wide beauty touch.

 

Baroqco Jewelry

Designers Imelda and Eduardo aka Baroqco are citizens of the world . Their roots are from Dutch Chinese Indonesian and Portuguese descent, and this diversity is what provides foundation that leads to the inspiration and creation. BaroQco comes from Baroque, an era of change from simplicity to lively and exuberant detail. BaroQco stands alone with its unique grandeur and ability to surprise and to achieve a sense of awe. Imelda and Eduardo started to create jewelry as they were looking for a tiara or crown for their wedding day. At that time there were not a lot of options, so they decided to create their own tiara which lead others to ask whether they could also make necklaces and earrings.

« As we embrace the impressionism, we strive not only for the outer but especially for the inner-beauty. In our creations we want to push boundaries of artistic techniques. And therefore the BaroQco is a book without an End. »

The materials are opal ,gold and Swarovski and all the metalwork are nickel free, the usage of non toxic and – hazardous for plating makes the jewelry more ecofriendly.

Cocktails Around the World

There are many different alcoholic drinks that you can enjoy these days, from premium beers and ales to fine wines, spirits, and liqueurs. Another thing that you can indulge in is one of the wide variety of delicious cocktails, which can be easily created at home. The choice of cocktails that you can rustle up these days is immense with something to suit all tastes and preferences.

In fact, you can enjoy sampling cocktails from around the world with some simple cocktail recipes. Lots of countries have their own signature cocktails so you can travel the world from the comfort of your own home by creating some of the cocktails from around the globe. You could even make an event of it with friends and family by also creating dishes from the same destination and getting a theme going.

Some of the great cocktails you can enjoy using signature drinks from around the globe

Many countries have their own signature drinks, and with these you can create a host of sumptuous cocktails that are perfect for any occasion. For instance, let’s take Russia as an example. Russian vodka is the perfect addition for many wonderful cocktails including Bloody Mary, vodka martini, and the White Russian. This is a very versatile drink that can actually form the alcoholic basis for many wonderful cocktails making it perfect if you enjoy a refreshing alcoholic beverage.

If you want something with plenty of kick and bite to it, Tequila is an excellent choice as the basis for your cocktails. Originating from Mexico, this super strong drink can be used in a variety of popular cocktails including the popular margarita, the Tequila Slammer and the Matador amongst others. You can also create the national drink of Mexico with tequila – the Paloma, which tequila combined with grapefruit soda and garnished with lime.

For those looking for a more refined and elegant cocktail, we turn to France which is where champagne originates from. While champagne is great to drink on its own, it can also create some wonderful cocktails such as mimosas and the delicious Kir Royale, which is made from a combination of champagne and cassis. This is a great way to add sparkle to your cocktails and add a touch a luxury to any event.

If you prefer something that is warming and distinctive, you can create cocktails from Scotch whisky, which hails from Scotland. This whisky is aged in oak barrels for several years to create that distinctive flavor and taste. There are many cocktails you can create that will make you fall in love with this beverage including the Rob Roy, the Rusty Nail, and the Godfather.

This is just a sample of the many drinks from around the world that can help you to create sumptuous cocktails for you and your friends to enjoy. All you need to do is look up some recipes, invest in a cocktail shaker or blender, and then get ready for a great night of cocktail sampling.

The Salon Project

The Salon Project by Joel Warren
Opens Innovative
New Beauty Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue Long Island

  • Debut location of innovative new retail and beauty salon concept at Saks Fifth Avenue Long Island.
  • Premium beauty creation and destination where artistry integrates technology, with leading technicians and unique products.

  • Bespoke beauty experiences in a unique setting, customized around the client, where specialized services are seamlessly connected to the vastly trusted experience of industry veteran Warren.


The Salon Project by Joel Warren is an updated original. A new concept in retail, beauty, and service. The combination of a curated assortment of hair care, skin care, nail care and makeup has never before been offered in such a highly customized way. We created our business model to help the consumer enjoy a bespoke experience, turning the client’s journey in a typical salon and beauty retailer into a thoroughly personalized, turnkey beauty service and shopping experience. Joel Warren, a veteran in the salon business, had a revelation that there is a far better way to primp and shop than what is offered by the current salon model. What was once thought of as an enjoyable day at the salon now truly is, along with expert guidance and incredibly curated retail, Warren has the solution.
The Salon Project offers an innovative approach to the client journey by eliminating the typical front desk for check-in. Instead, guests are greeted by iPad-equipped concierges who direct them to their designated station where the client remains and relaxes for the duration of their services.

Joel Warren said, “I noticed the way that many salons operate is not efficient or as client-focused as it could be. Our approach improves operations, and the client experience, by using our knowledge and technology to bring everything to the client. Saks Fifth Avenue has a focus on luxury, making it the perfect environment for the first location of The Salon Project.”

The first Salon Project location will open its doors in February 2018 at Saks Fifth Avenue Long Island. The plan is to have an additional ten locations opening at Saks Fifth Avenue stores throughout the United States over the next 24 months. Houston and Boca Raton are next on deck to open in 2018, with the second wave of locations in 2019. The highlight of 2019 will be the highly anticipated opening of The Salon Project at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York City.

RPG designed the interiors under the leadership of CEO Bruce E. Teitelbaum in partnership with Joel Warren. Two beauty and retail veterans joined forces to create a compelling, unforgettable space that melds unexpected touches and contemporary twists with 20th-century retro and modern, casual glamour. The salon and spa environment have the technological edge to create excitement and ultimate client convenience. Augmented and virtual reality features drive engagement and allow for seamless check-out in your chair with no trip to the front desk. The Salon Project is truly a stand-out in its category; it is the store of the future.

Bruce E. Teitelbaum commented, “We are thrilled to bring our global, diversified design and build experience to The Salon Project, a pioneer in its category. Joel’s incredible talent and knowledge along with the prestige and allure of Saks and RPG’s creative and manufacturing expertise should prove to be a winning combination.”

To that end, each Beauty Expert from The Salon Project has the opportunity to engage in multi-services training, allowing them to play a key role in facilitating sales through trusted stylist-client relationships. While seated, clients can play with augmented reality technology to try on products available among The Salon Project’s inventory. They test lipsticks and other beauty items from a try-on bar cart, all while receiving recommendations from the Beauty Expert / Hairstylist who seamlessly completes product purchases directly from an iPad.

Sean Paul Campbell, General Manager of The Salon Project, said, “I am thrilled to be supporting Joel Warren, as well as the many talented team members at The Salon Project. This innovative and unique new approach to beauty represents a giant leap forward in service and technology, and means that our clients will be able to expect the most current trends and products every time they walk through our door.”
