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.

JIM CHAPMAN x CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Ahead of the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, Jim Chapman, Writer and Content Creator, celebrates the upcoming A-list event with exclusive insight into the most memorable moments from previous years, and what to expect from this year’s festival.

 

Jim gives us the lowdown on Cannes, one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.  He recalls back in 2011, when Kanye West performed an exclusive after party set and invited Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx onstage for an impromptu performance of his hit single, ‘Gold Digger’.

 

Jim also recounts his untold insight from the 2015 festival when Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and director Denis Villeneuve all wore high heels to the premiere of Sicario, as a demonstration against an antiquated dress code requiring women to wear heels to all evening gala premieres. Famously,  Julia Roberts appeared barefoot on the red carpet as an act of fashion rebellion against the same rule too.

 

As Cannes is one of the most anticipated red carpet events of the awards calendar,  Jim is expecting to see Hollywood star, Cate Blanchett pull out all the stops, as this year,  as she has been named President of the Jury, alongside other actresses including Kristen Stewart and Léa Seydoux to name but a few.

 

Jim also discusses the stir caused by organizers who have banned Netflix productions being considered for the Palme D’Or and Netflix’s decision to withdraw their title from the festival.

BOY SMELLS x UNMENTIONABLES

Candles that smell. Underwear that don’t :

 

 

California Candle Company Expands With Intimate Apparel Launch.

BOY SMELLS is pleased to announce the expansion of their brand with the introduction of intimate apparel with Boy Smells Unmentionables. Debuting March 19, 2018, the new line of men’s and women’s underwear further enhances the home experience that is central to everything Boy Smells does. The debut Boy Smells Unmentionables collection includes three styles: a minimal mid-rise brief for men, a classic mid-rise boxer brief for men, and a minimal mid-rise brief for women. All styles are made in Peru out of premium Pima cotton. For color, Boy Smells has chosen to further expand the brands signature pink with other neo-naturalistic tones: bone, buff, bare, and blush.

 

 

ABOUT THE SMELLS

Boy Smells candles are a proprietary blend of coconut oil and beeswax; beautiful and rich–burning. Each scent has been developed to have its own unique expression; notes plucked from a personal catalog of olfactory memories, then evolved and expressed in a modern context. Both familiar and unexpected.

 

 

ABOUT THE BOYS

Boy Smells is the creation of David Kien and Matthew Herman who established the brand in 2014 in the Pico-Union District of Los Angeles, California.

Started as a scent experiment, and later developed as a product, both pooled their experiences in design and production worlds of fashion and applied them to a home fragrance collection.

Lakeith Stanfield x Ermenegildo Zenga

Critically acclaimed actor Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta, Come SundaySorry To Bother You, The Girl In The Spider’s Web) wowed viewers when he walked the red carpet at the 90th Annual Academy Awards ® wearing a custom-made sustainable tuxedo made by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The look was styled by Michaela Erlanger and worn in support of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress ethical fashion campaign.

The tuxedo is a navy Tussah Silk, which is sturdier than cultivated silk. Typically gathered in the jungle from cocoons of wild silk moths, the silk is found in a natural state with minimal human intervention and very little invasion to the process. For this reason, unlike a silk yarn produced with greater mechanical interventions, the yarn of Tussah silk features irregularities creating a rich texture, typical of wild, natural breeding.

In 2009, Amis Cameron created Red Carpet Green Dress with the goal of creating awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, Red Carpet Green Dress works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

To qualify as a Red Carpet Green Dress eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from recycled, organic or repurposed materials, use hand-made detailing or incorporate natural dye processing – always with a focus on minimal negative impact on the environment, and environmentally and socially responsible design.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2018 partners, TESLA and Absolut Elyx. Absolut Elyx is a company that is built on the principles of quality, integrity and true craftsmanship. Every copper purchase in the Elyx Boutique, allows the luxury vodka company to provide safe water to more than 100,000 people worldwide with the help of Water for People.

It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA. MUSE School CA is an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif. with her sister Rebecca Amis. This assistance enables students to access a transformative educational experience. MUSE School CA ensures smaller class sizes, personalized instruction and learning practices; all set within an inspiring and beautiful campus. Through these key elements, MUSE School CA paves the way in creating leaders of the future.
