Alta orologeria. Un classico ridisegnato

Published

on

Nel 1994 è stato uno dei quattro modelli che hanno segnato il ritorno sul palcoscenico dell’Alta Orologeria del Brand Sassone. Da allora la collezione Saxonia si è ampliata fino ad avere 10 modelli. A. Lange & Söhne ha presentato tre modelli con il nuovo quadrante: Saxonia Dual Time, Saxonia e Saxonia Automatic.

Saxonia2 (1) Il nome Saxonia si riferisce alla regione tedesca che, nel corso della storia, è sempre stata il punto di riferimento nello sviluppo della tecnica. Ferdinand Adolph Lange, orologiaio di Dresda, diventò parte di questa tradizione quando fondò quì la sua Manifattura. I suoi sforzi per raggiungere la perfezione e i continui miglioramenti delle sue costruzioni meccaniche sono i principi fondamentali a cui si ispira A. Lange & Söhne e si riflettono nei nuovi modelli della collezione Saxonia.

A proposito di A. Lange & Söhne Con la fondazione della sua Manifattura di orologi nel 1845, l’orologiaio di Dresda Ferdinand A. Lange creò le premesse dell’alta orologeria sassone. I suoi pregiati orologi da tasca sono tuttora molto ambiti dai collezionisti del mondo intero. Dopo la seconda guerra mondiale l’azienda fu espropriata e il nome Lange & Söhne rischiò di cadere in oblio.Saxonia2 (2)

Nel 1990 Walter Lange, pronipote di Ferdinand A. Lange, ebbe il coraggio di rifondare l’azienda. Oggi in Lange vengono prodotti ogni anno solo poche migliaia di orologi da polso in oro o in platino. In essi sono contenuti esclusivamente movimenti sviluppati in Manifattura, montati e decorati a mano con grande impegno. Con oltre 40 calibri di Manifattura A. Lange & Söhne ha conquistato in poco più di 20 anni una posizione preminente tra i più grandi marchi di orologi del mondo. Tra i maggiori successi vanno annoverati innovativi segnatempo, il LANGE 1, con il primo grande datario in un orologio da polso in regolare produzione, e il LANGE ZEITWERK con cifre “saltanti esattamente” ed estremamente leggibili. Entrambi i modelli sono diventati icone di un marchio ricco di tradizione.

Stepping out: introducing the Fall/Winter 2022 Michael Kors Collection Runway Show

Published

on

Stepping out in New York was the theme of Michael Kors’ Fall/Winter 2022 runway show, which was presented at the iconic music venue Terminal 5 in Manhattan today at 8 PM (ET)—marking the music venue’s first fashion show, and the designer’s first live evening show. From the runway, which was illuminated to echo city lights, to a musical performance by Miguel, the show celebrated the allure and energy of New York City at night.

Starting with his Spring/Summer 2020 presentation, Michael has used the occasion of his runway shows to shine a light on his hometown. From a New York Restoration Project community garden to the theater district to Tavern on the Green and now Terminal 5, the designer has worked to reignite the spirit that drives New York City.

For this show, I wanted to bring the excitement and energy of a night on the town to life—because I think right now, no matter where you are, we’re all craving that,” says Michael Kors. “And the clothes are really everything you need for stepping up, stepping out and making an entrance.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams was among the A-list front row, which also included Blake Lively, Brooke Shields, Ariana DeBose, Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia Spencer, Addison Rae and more.

Michael Kors is the epitome of made in New York,” says Mr. Adams. He’s not only been a leader in the fashion industry for four decades, but has been there for New York when the city has needed him most. As COVID devastated our city, Michael stepped up and got to work helping to rebuild so many industries hard hit by the pandemic. From shining a spotlight on charitable organizations to supporting our schools to paying homage to Broadway, Michael has helped us with recovery efforts every step of the way. New York City owes this icon a debt of gratitude and I am excited to see everything he does next, both on and off the runway.”

A musical performance by Grammy-Award winning artist Miguel set the mood as models Natasha Poly, Emily Ratajkowski, Adut Akech, Precious Lee, Malgosia Bela, Paloma Elsesser, Alton Mason, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Isabeli Fontana, Irina Shayk, Sherry Shi, Karmen Pedaru and more walked the runway against the illuminated backdrop. Chosen for his unique style and dynamic stage presence, Miguel performed anthemic songs including Raspberry Beret, as well as his hits Pineapple Skies and Sure Thing, providing the perfect soundtrack for the collection.

Playing with the art of revealing and concealing—of being both covered up and provocative—the runway included everything from short hemlines and thigh-high boots to dramatic hoods and skin-baring cutouts. Shades of camel, chocolate and banker
grounded pops of electric fuchsia, orange and yellow while menswear tweeds, plaid and flannel played against glamorous paillettes and crystal embroidery for a wardrobe that was made for stepping up and stepping out.

The virtual experience premiered on the brand’s social and digital channels, including MichaelKors-Collection.com, which serves as the hub for all Fall/Winter 2022 Michael Kors Collection content. The programming was also available to the brand’s international audience across YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, as well as on WeChat, Weibo, LINE and Kakao.

Alexander McQueen store opening Capri, Italy

Published

on

Alexander McQueen apre uno store sull’isola di Capri, Italia, il cui progetto di design nasce dalla collaborazione tra il direttore creativo Sarah Burton e l’architetto Smiljan Radic.
Uno spazio unico che si estende su 39 metri quadrati e ospita le collezioni donna prêt-à-porter e accessori.
Attingendo al fascino per la natura, che è alla base dei valori fondamentali della maison di Alexander McQueen, il materiale principale impiegato è il rovere che appare su pareti e scaffalature.
A questo si accostano armadi e pavimenti in lastre di marmo Alba Chiara che conferiscono un sapore locale. La sperimentazione è preziosa: la cabina di prova è rivestita con tessuti creati appositamente nell’atelier McQueen di Londra.
Il prodotto diviene il protagonista, visto da tutti i lati e da vicino, ed è onnipresente il balance tra contemporaneo e tradizionale che caratterizza la maison di Alexander McQueen.
