Rosewood Bangkok

Rosewood Bangkok, a visually striking, ultra-luxury property on Ploenchit Road in Bangkok’s prime central business and retail district, will open 31 March 2019, marking the second Thailand property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® and the dazzling urban sister to Rosewood Phuket, opened in 2017. An amalgam of contemporary sophistication and Thai heritage, Rosewood Bangkok will bring to life the brand’s hallmark A Sense of Place® philosophy through architectural design and carefully curated décor, spa and dining experiences. Reservations are now being accepted with opening offers available at rosewoodhotels.com.

The 30-story standalone property will help reshape the Bangkok skyline by occupying two connecting high-rise structures that create a modern tribute to the Thai spirit.  Its contemporary form is inspired by the wai — the graceful Thai gesture of palms pressed together in greeting.  The hotel will be conveniently connected to the BTS Station amidst a luxury enclave of embassies, new office towers and upscale malls. 

The hotel is celebrating its upcoming opening by launching its official @rosewoodbangkok social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.  The Facebook platform debuts on 19 February with the distinctive #WaiBangkok campaign showcasing the dynamism, creativity and style of the Thai capital.  Residents and travelers will be invited to share their own new perspectives of Bangkok inspired by Rosewood Bangkok’s entry to the city.

“Rosewood Bangkok represents an exciting new expression of ultra-luxury hospitality in Bangkok,” says Thomas Harlander, the hotel’s managing director.  “It will be a symbol of the emergence of the country’s capital as a hub of creative style and design for the region. Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy will also be thoughtfully interpreted in modern yet authentically Thai fashion through the entire hotel, from its design to all its experiences — we aim to provide a portal to all the many fascinating sides of this captivating capital and culture.”

The “#WaiBangkok” campaign, 19 February to 31 May, will feature a photo series by distinguished photographers Tum Chanipol Kusolcharttum and Scott Woodward. Tum, better known as Rockkhound, is one of Thailand’s best street photographers and will kickstart the campaign with his perspective of Bangkok’s dynamic charisma. Scott Woodward, a Canadian seasoned documentary photographer whose works are often seen on the glossy pages of National GeographicCondé Nast Traveler and New York Times, will contribute a series of photos of Bangkok that illustrate why this City of Angels so attracts him.

The visually stunning campaign will invite people to share a different and more contemporary side of Thailand’s capital and showcase their favorite hidden gems to illustrate “why” they love Bangkok. Participants will post their own fresh and compelling images of the city on Rosewood Bangkok’s official social media accounts using the hashtag #WaiBangkok and tagging Rosewood Bangkok’s Facebook or Instagram account @RosewoodBangkok.  The winner will receive a THB100,000 credit to spend at the hotel.

To celebrate Rosewood Bangkok’s entry into the market, the ultra-luxury hotel presents special introductory offers available until 30 June 2019 and open for reservations now at rosewoodhotels.com

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.

Stella McCartney | Kate Moss & Kaia Gerber

Top model Kate Moss is always Stella’s best friend. And it is very surprising to see Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s daughter) in Stella McCartney Summer 2019 ad campaign~

Encapsulating the laid-back attitude of the Stella McCartney woman, the new campaign images features Kaia in a tie dye organic denim jumpsuit and while in another image Kate is clad in a pure white organic cotton jumpsuit.  Both are shot amidst a dirty pastel or washed out neon backdrop that echo the palette and the sense of strength and softness of the new collection.  Stella’s signature play on masculine and feminine designs for summer 2019 are updated in relaxed pastel tailoring borrowed from the boys on Gerber and a weightless glittering lurex dress made of sustainable viscose on Moss, both paired with nude coloured ballet flats featured on the runway.  Highlighted in the new campaign is the designer’s new organic cotton canvas Stella logo monogram cluster bags made for every eventuality in both mini and maxi sizes; round flap bags, back packs, totes and Falabella shapes, as well as the updated version of the pumped up Eclypse sneaker in this season’s colours.
