Jo Malone London | Wild Flowers & Weeds | A New Limited Edition Collection

Jo Malone London Introduces a New Limited Edition Collection

Introducing Wild Flowers & Weeds, a collection of limited edition scents inspired by the unruly weeds and wildly-wonderful plants and flowers that line the banks of a winding river. Surprising concoctions, breaking through the cracks with no rhyme or reason. A tangy sting of nettle. The weeping willow, gently draping across the water. Hemlock’s deadly allure, amidst a rainbow array of lupin flowers. Unexpected beauty lies at every turn.

The collection includes five distinctive Colognes:

Hemlock & Bergamot
Hemlock’s powdery petals, brightened with bergamot. A deadly, yet unexpectedly-delicate flower.
Illuminated with golden mimosa and a floral flourish of heliotrope. Crisp and modern with a bite of cucumber.

Cade & Cedarwood

The smouldering embers of a wood-burning stove at nightfall. Basking in the warm and comforting glow of cade – its smoky scent mingled with cedarwood and complemented by a mouth-watering hint of sensual vanilla.

Lupin & Patchouli

Reminiscent of canal banks, awash with colour. A rainbow of lupin flowers, enriched by luxurious rose
and deepened with rebellious patchouli. A surprising contrast with the fresh vibrancy of mandarin.

Willow & Amber

The expressive weeping willow, gently draping across the fresh morning water. Captured in the woody pairing of cashmere wood and smoky vetiver, enhanced by softly sensual amber.

Nettle & Wild Achillea

The tangy sting of nettle, peeking through pavement cracks and entwined with wild, white achillea flower. Sparkling with bright bergamot, the greenness softened by a soft base of white musk.

The Colognes are available in 30ml bottles, decorated with printed illustrations of the key ingredients of each fragrance inspired by a traditional painting style. Customers will receive a matching keepsake tin* with purchases of two scents from the collection, or the full line-up. *While stock lasts.

Available in limited quantity from March 2019

Each 30ml Cologne   HKD/MOP 630

Raffles has announced the opening of the 38-villa resort in the rare Maldivian oasis of Gaafu Alifu Atoll on 1 February 2019. This is AccorHotels’ fourth property in the Maldives and is the first under the Raffles brand.

A hidden gem with unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean, the resort is the perfect over-water escape offering two distinct experiences for those seeking a private get-away or simply to enjoy the natural pristine water surroundings.

A secluded collection of Overwater Villas and Residenceslies adjacent to one of the vibrant house reefs which can be reached by a traditional Maldivian Dhoni boat.

In each of the terraces, guests can marvel at the marine life below through the glass flooring panels. There is an extraordinary display of natural beauty with white, powdery sand that frames sparkling clear waters. Two magnificent reefs provide a thriving habitat for the marine life including baby sharks, turtles and a myriad of tropical fish. For those that want to learn more about the underwater realm, the hotel’s resident marine biologist and team of marine butlers are on hand to personalise guest experiences that bring unique and beautiful insights of the underwater world. At night, the moon and stars reflect on the mirror-like ocean, creating an extraordinary spectacle.

“Boasting 1200 islands, Maldives is home to the best beaches in the world and now, with the opening of Raffles Maldives Meradhoo, is also home to the best of luxury hospitality. We look forward to offering guests the most natural beauty set within an incredible resort that offers the finest luxury hotel experience and unrivalled service in the destination,” says Patrick Basset, AccorHotels’ CEO for Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia and the Maldives.

MONCLER CRAIG GREEN

Moncler Genius, the new creative and business vision involving different creative minds, each one devoted to several interpretations of Moncler — released singularly one dot at time with continuous flow — unveils “The Next Chapter”. On February 20th 2018, Moncler breaks the rules presenting the Moncler Genius Building. An innovative project and a new strategy aimed at disrupting the traditional twice-yearly rhythm of the fashion shows, by showing 8 different collections all at once, while rolling out them once a month with individual and dedicated 360° launch plans. Both creativity and uniqueness are the fuel to this brand new project. Moncler Genius reflects a shifting world that overcomes the temporality of the seasons and represents a new course for the brand: different creative approaches, and therefore collections, redefine the Moncler’s dialectics in the digital era, able to establish a constant dialogue with the consumer looking at all generations.

On September 19th 2018, Moncler Genius evolves organically and completes its Moncler Genius Building offer filling in “The Next Chapter” with new collections to cover the whole year with an ongoing plan still keeping the brand’s unique heritage and traditions alive, while having a clear vision of the future that lies ahead. One house that speaks through different voices, in a progressive, even pioneering way.

“The Next Chapter” of Moncler Genius is disclosed today through different immersive video installations that illustrate the creative spirit, the intentions and the atmosphere of each collection. Moncler Genius concept is so strong that it can pierce the screen.
Working solely with the medium of video, each designer chose a personal take on the visual narrative. Moncler 1952 deconstructed and reconstructed whole outfits and details in endless geometric variations that build an hypnotic video collage. Simone Rocha gave sensual tangibility to an English garden in full bloom, letting petals and leaves and flowers unfurl on screen. Craig Green explored and blasted the sculptural tension and sense of protection of his pieces by unleashing them into a video-space. The modular constructivism of Noir Kei Ninomiya translated into a computerized reconstruction of a 3D virtual garment model. Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara collaborated with artist Michal Socha on a cinematic animation that describes an adventure through elements and seasons.

The language is new to match a progressive timeline. Moncler Genius is a constant stream, on and offline, be it with product or creative acts. Showing the product on screens is a radical sign in synch with both the freewheeling creativity of Moncler Genius, its business mode and its fearless spirit.

Moncler Genius follows its own rules showing in an exhibition the significant vision that’s behind it. Virtual and real, online and offline always work in unison in Moncler Genius. Having product at the core, makes the virtual possible because the real comes first. So much so that the product is video-featured and not showed.

“The Next Chapter” of Moncler Genius is unveiled in an industrial space that works as a gallery. Throughout each room, spectators will get inside a pure, undiluted vision of each Moncler Genius. A kaleidoscope of images for a chorus of different voices, speaking for one house.

Relying on a unique creative vision, shaping visions of uniqueness in a totally free way, Moncler Genius affirms once more its progressive ethos based on invention and innovation.
