FENDI CASA

Fendi Casa presents an elegant and refined collection at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2017, featuring an exclusive version of the Palmer sofa by French industrial designer Toan Nguyen dubbed Six Shades of Palmer. With a dégradé of six hues ranging from intense passion red to a delicate powder pink, his design enhances the graphic lines of the sofa, which has a modular structure to play on the contrasts.  Other items in the collection feature trompe-l’œil motifs on wallpaper, plays on volume with the sinuous lines of the new Stiletto chair, and the elegant Ford table. Tones oscillate between neutral nuances like ivory, chalk and ecru to shades of green, pastel pink and cherry.  A harmonious balance between design and fashion, the Fendi Casa collection celebrates elegant lines and high-quality materials.

LOUIS VUITTON

Created in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection carries on the Maison’s long tradition of crafting exceptional travel objects. The collection is enriched with ten new items this year, the fruit of collaborations between designers and Louis Vuitton that embody shared ideals. Inspired by Brazilian bombocas candies, the playful sofa by the Campana brothers is designed like a puzzle with eight removable cushions. The talisman-inspired nomadic side table by India Mahdavi features remarkable leather marquetry, while the leather straps on the stunning chair by Atelier Oï resemble Louis Vuitton belts.

LOEWE

For its third contribution to the Milan International Furniture Fair, Loewe presents its Loewe: This is Home collection. A category-spanning universe that combines art forms and expert craft techniques, the line encompasses furniture, lamps, blankets, ceramics and cushions. Conceived by Jonathan Anderson in the spirit of a collage, the collection brings together canework, ceramic vessels with leather details and dyed wool motifs. Handmade in Spain and the U.K., the pieces invite fashion and craft into the home. After Milan, the project will travel to Paris, London and Madrid.

BASEL, Switzerland, 2016-Mar-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Baselworld watch fair gives LVMH Houses a chance to showcase their latest models, symbols of their creative universes and expertise, on the cutting edge of precision and innovation. Discover the star models in the latest collections from Bulgari, Dior, Fendi, Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith.

TAG Heuer
Just six months after the release of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01, the backbone of the brand’s new collection of distinctive contemporary chronographs, TAG Heuer introduces the Carrera Heuer-02T. This automatic chronograph combined with a titanium and carbon flying tourbillon is certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC), guaranteeing the highest level of chronometric precision.

The movement is housed in the latest generation case. Made from titanium, this case is lightweight and more shock-resistant. The design reflects TAG Heuer’s focus on accessible luxury and opens up a huge range of possibilities with an infinite combination of materials, colors, and finishes. The watch is complemented by a black alligator strap sewn onto rubber for a sporty look. The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T symbolizes the Swiss watchmaker’s creativity and continued investment in technology, exemplary quality, performance and watch manufacture expertise.

Bulgari
The Italian jeweler innovates continually, associating its mastery of precious materials with Swiss watchmaking precision. The precious new Serpenti Incantati watch highlights the iconic serpent theme, a symbolic creature long since tamed by Bulgari. In this interpretation, for the very first time the reptile coils around the watch dial. Each part of the head and the body has been entirely rethought and redesigned with extremely contemporary lines. There are four choices: a rubellite or diamond version, each expressed through two different interpretations. These beautiful contemporary tributes to historic models testify to this timeless motif’s permanent capacity for renewal.

Hublot
Hublot once spotlights its innovation and materials expertise with a new watchmaking first: an exceptional series of 500 Big Bang Unico Sapphire models cut straight from sapphire. The sapphire crystal is almost as hard and scratch-resistant as diamond. It is extremely difficult to machine, and has until now been reserved for one-of-a-kind pieces or very private collections.

Without losing sapphire’s unique and rare character, Hublot has made it more accessible with this absolutely transparent collection that consecrates the acclaimed architecture of the Big Bang model and the performances of the brand’s Unico movement. Finishes, textures and materials fuse to create an indivisible whole. The case middle, bezel and back of the Big Bang Unico Sapphire are cut from blocks of sapphire. Its skeleton dial made from transparent resin reveals all the gears of the movement and its finishes. The strap is invisible so that the skin can be seen through it, for an ethereal look.

Zenith
For years the Manufacture has associated its name and expertise with the world of classic cars, a world that shares the same authentic values. In 2016, building on its many partnerships, Zenith will be joining thousands of classic car enthusiasts around the world at over 50 events. The El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Car embodies and pays tribute to this prestigious world, in which precision, reliability and endurance are expressed through sophisticated and elegant designs.

The mythical chronograph El Primero by Zenith is an extremely precise, high-performance emblem of cutting-edge mechanics. Dedicated to those with a love for legendary cars, the El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Car comes with a 42 mm-diameter brushed steel case, fitted with a fluted crown and two round push-pieces. Expressing strength and distinction, this chronograph has an anthracite dial punctuated by three counters in the original colors of anthracite, blue and light gray. Gentlemen drivers will appreciate the perforated chestnut brown calfskin strap.

Dior unveils a new series of eight exceptional unique pieces: the Dior Grand Soir collection. The Studio’s creative inspiration for the new Kaléidioroscope model comes from embroideries designed by Monsieur Dior. To express this rich and colorful concept, this model was developed in 36 mm. The voluminous dial is adorned with mother-of-pearl, ornamental stones, polished gold petals and precious stones. The bezel is set in diamonds, sapphires or tsavorite garnets in geometric shapes, accentuating the bewitching symmetry of the dial. The jean strap reflects Dior’s modern style. These refined timepieces feature an automatic Elite caliber from the Zenith manufacture. Through a colored pleat, the back reveals a lacquered oscillating weight in harmony with the dial.

Fendi
Fendi Timepieces unveils Policromia, its exclusive new watch designed in partnership with the well-known jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi. The Policromia collection features twenty models of watches, each showcasing different precious elements of haute joaillerie. Brilliant cut white diamonds adorn the case and the dial, paired with refined inserts of real stones: malachite and green mother-of-pearl, or lapis lazuli and blue mother-of-pearl. A combination of colors on different surfaces, nuanced pieces, precious inserts and asymmetrical bezels made in noble materials create the watch’s daring silhouette with a unique 3D effect, underlining the importance of time, innovation and evolution of the watch’s design.

Invitation to discover how LVMH Houses engage with innovation

PARIS, 2015-10-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Innovation is deeply embedded in the DNA of the LVMH Group, providing a source of continued success and authenticity over the years.  As a core value of LVMH, innovation inspires the Group’s houses in their quest for excellence, creating an ongoing dialogue between tradition and modernity. Several emblematic initiatives illustrate the pioneering spirit that guides us.

“Our business model is anchored in a long term vision that builds on the heritage of our Houses and stimulates creativity and excellence. This model drives the success of our Group and ensures its promising future,” says Bernard Arnault, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LVMH, who notes that the Group’s success springs from a subtle balance. Innovation is a pillar of our business model. By drawing on an infinitely rich past and savoir-faire, LVMH Houses continue to blend tradition and modernity to create products that spark desire among our customers.

The history of LVMH Houses is replete with boundless innovation.  Louis Vuitton created the Monogram canvas in the late 19th century to fight counterfeiting. Also in the 19th century, Aristide Boucicaut, invented modern retail commerce at Le Bon Marché department store, introducing fixed prices, labels, regular sales at specific times of the year, product returns, and other innovations. This quest for excellence is more dynamic than ever today.

“Our culture is focused on curiosity, change, opportunity, innovation and creativity, says Toni Belloni, Group Managing Director. “We want our brands to stay true to their origins, but reinvent them so they remain relevant to our current and future customers.”

Encouraged by Bernard Arnault, this focus on innovation requires the mindset of a start-up across an international group that is the world leader in the luxury industry and counts over 120,000 employees.

This week we invite you to discover how LVMH Houses engage with innovation. Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman and CEO of Tag Heuer, discusses how the watchmaker developed its connected watch, which will be unveiled on November 9 in New York. A much-awaited annual event, the MH Innovation Awards let Moët Hennessy celebrate the exemplary innovation drive of its Houses.

Innovation has always been deeply rooted in the DNA of Sephora, whose Innovation Lab is scaling up to mobilize staff and generate new ideas. Lastly, to better valorize the significant volume of data it has collected and mobilize technical talents, Louis Vuitton organized the first ever Hackathon in the luxury industry.
