Cartier Unveils Daring Hues in Coloratura High-Jewelry Collection

Cartier is banking on diverse stones and bold colors in its new Coloratura High-Jewelry collection.Colors drawn from all over the world combine in the Coloratura High-Jewelry from Cartier which was announced during the Haute Couture Fashion week 2018 in Paris. The collection was launched at a party that was hosted on a typical French style barge that was docked at the famous Quai Debilly.With the intensely colored pieces in the collection, the French luxury house which creates everything from timepieces to fragrances and leather goods is hoping to appeal to an international audience that wants a dash of both tradition and new-fangled design.Cartier has banked on gemstones which are decades old and others that have been acquired recently to flesh out the collection and create pieces such as the Laterna necklace. The alluring necklace has its heart a rubellite which is hollowed out to fit perfume and features a jeweled crown. In the Chromaphonia necklace, the focus is on emeralds that originated from Afghanistan, which are fashioned into beads and interspersed with garnets and diamonds to create a signature piece.African themes are evident in the Kanaga necklace, which is created from diamonds on which is suspended rows of spinel beads. Indian influences are also represented in the Holika bracelet, which draws upon the colors that are often used in the festival of Holi; Japanese designs and hues are relied upon in the creation of the Yoshino necklace.Click on the slideshow for more details.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin

Chanel Stuns with Green Bridal Gown at Fall-Winter 2018/19 Haute Couture Show

At Chanel’s Haute Couture 2018 show model Adut Akech’s couture outfit — a sublime green hued bridal gown — was appreciated both for its color and stellar design. The gown importantly relied on tweed in a pastel shade and featured work created by the Maisons D’art of the company including atelier Montex.The bridal gown was modeled after a two piece suit. Comprised of a jacket that was fitted to model Adut Akech, it was complemented by a dress that swept to the floor. Designs used in the embroidery of the gown were fashioned after the green olive leaves featured on the attire worn by members of the “Academie Francaise”. The olive leaves on the coat along with its trim which formed an intricate pattern were embroidered by hand by atelier Montex using shades of sea green rocaille beading.With tweed inspired style, the bridal gown matched many of the other outfits that were showcased as part of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2018/19 Haute Couture collection. The unique gown however easily stood apart from the rest of the collection which relied on silver, black, grey and subtle shades of pink.A fascinator by Maison Michel topped off the bridal gown ensemble, and it featured embroidery created by atelier Montex and was paired with a veil in tulle.Click on the slideshow for more details.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin

Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrates 70 years of Porsche production

Goodwood Festival of Speed, an annual event in the world of motorsport commissioned British artist Gerry Judah to create a spectacular centerpiece. The sculpture is the ultimate expression of design, engineering and speed and epitomises both the event and its celebrated marque — Porsche. The Festival of Speed is a major event in the world motorsport calendar, featuring the latest racers, championship drivers and incredible displays of classic cars.The sculpture, which stands impressively in front of Goodwood House in West Sussex at 52m high, towers above the entire event. The design and creation of the Central Feature has been a complex process, starting with initial concepts and sketches by Judah with extensive collaboration from engineers Diales, culminating in the construction and erection by Littlehampton Welding.This year celebrates 70 years since the Porsche 356 was first introduced in 1948. “Despite the sheer size – as high as Nelson’s Column – the sculpture is incredibly lightweight – just 21 tonnes of steel to support six tonnes of car.  The geometry is based on a regular truncated octahedron, this shape giving positions to display all six cars, with a stem at the bottom and a spire on top. All parts are hexagonal tapered tubes, giving strength and rigidity, and fabricated entirely from laser cut steel plate,” Gerry Judah commented.The sculpture features two other notable historic Porsches: the 917, an endurance racer, driven by Steve McQueen in the film Le Mans, and the 959, which was a winner of the 1987 Paris Dakar rally.The other featured Porsches include: the 918 Spyder, which is a hybrid road car made in 2015; the 919 Le Mans Prototype from 2015; and the 911R, a road car introduced in 2016, which is included to represent up-to-date Porsche design.Gerry Judah’s other installations can be seen in settings as varied as the Imperial War Museum, St Paul’s Cathedral and the India High Commission as well as international locations such as Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, and an entrance sculpture outside the Porscheplatz Museum, Stuttgart, Germany.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/                              Founder: Louise Blouin

Best Cocktails To Sip When You are on a Yacht

Holiday season is still on or even if it’s not just ensure you take a short break from work and head to a cruise or a yacht for that super sailing that you need when the tides of life are rough. And while you are in the middle of water all around don’t forget to sip some of the best cocktails that every yacht bartender swears by.Let’s begin by Sakura Sour. It is created by mixing kumquat puree, chu hai peach, Hibiki Harmony whisky,and sakura tincture. It tastes heavenly and comes across as one of the most sophisticated cocktails. Next in line should be Mediterranean Pink Lady, which is the result of mixing Campari and limoncello. The citrusy and crisp pink cocktail is the most classic cocktail you ever had.Adour Kiwi Martini works as an aperitif. Before you start your meal just try mixing Kiwi puree, Kiwi cordial and Vodka. The cocktail will leave you hungry and wanting for more.Lavender Spritzer is another cocktail that will lift your mood while you are relaxing on the deck of a cruise. Lavender Spritzer is created by mixing potent tequila, lemon, sour grapefruit, with floral lavender.Santorini Sunrise is a Mediterranean take on our very own Tequila Sunrise.  Greek honey infused with thyme or rosemary mixed with vodka or ouzo. Let the current travel throughout your body and give you the much needed rejuvenation.People who have tasted Le Grand Fizz know it to be a zesty yet light cocktail. Add vodka along with St Germain to a glass. Squeeze juice of two lime and top up with soda and you are good to go!Summer Punch has a punch of fruits enhanced with a kick. To make this you can mix Suntory Roku gin, strawberry and Dubonnet fortified wine and a hint of ginger. Just sipping it would make you forget all your woes.      Lazy Old Fashioned is one of the easiest cocktail to make. It is made out of Monkey Shoulder, Demerara Syrup and Angostura Bitters. Mix them in a bottle and impress everyone!English 75 is the British counterpart of French 75. Tanqueray gin when mixed with English sparkling wine English 75 is formed and people forget their champagne.Well, now you have your list of cocktails ready just keep your punch-lines handy for those lighter moments onboard!Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the cocktails http://www.blouinartinfo.com Founder: Louise Blouin

Balmain x Beyoncé Capsule Collection Launched

Balmain recently collaborated with Beyonce for a capsule collection. The collection was recently unveiled and is made available for sale.“Balmain x Beyonce, is based on key Olivier Rousteing designs for Beyonce’s iconic Coachella weekends, riffs on the signature varsity styles and legacy of more than 100 America’s historically black colleges and universities. Proceeds from the collection, fittingly, will be used to help fund the impressive work of UNCF, which helps thousands of students attend college, thrive, graduate and become tomorrow’s leaders,” says the Balmain website.It all started when Beyonce and her troupe were wearing their Balmain designed marching band outfits while practicing. The dancers were enjoying the outfit and so was she. This is when it struck to the Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing that they can take Beyonce’s stage outfits to the stores and can come up with a collection to make her fans happy. Thus the corner stone for the Balmain x Beyonce collaboration was laid and rest, as they say, is history.The collaboration yielded collection that was launched in mid July. Balmain launched a three-piece Balmain x Beyonce collection in its Paris flagship. The collection is also available online. The collection includes pink and yellow sweatshirts that Beyonce flaunted on stage at Coachella. A black tee also features in the collection with the same graphic.Rousteing had reportedly said that this coming together of music and fashion is a big thing and that he wants the association to do well. As per him Beyonce is an epitome of empowerment and is a strong woman. The fact that she is a perfectionist drives everyone around her to perform better. He believes that they are on the same page. They shared the same vision for their respective domain and brought the same to the collection. The collection is more than just clothes and that the collection carries a message. The message is to never stop dreaming. Beyonce’s global success is a great tool to spread the message of standing for women’s rights and standing against racism.As per Rousteing the clothes talk to the millennial about the things they wish and the things they can achieve. He feels everyone around these days are fortunate enough to be witnessing so much and having the exposure and the know-how. It was difficult during his growing up years in France.Proceeds from the collaboration will go to the United Negro College Fund!Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the Balmain x Beyonce collectionhttp://www.blouinartinfo.com Founder: Louise Blouin
