Sergio Rossi SS 2011


Sergio Rossi, the Italian renowned luxury shoes specialist, held a party to celebrate the 2011 spring summer collection in Shanghai.

In the unique setting of "on the "Bund" riverbank – a renowned stretch of embanked riverfront housed with prestigious and historical edifices. Fashion landmark “Space by Three” metamorphosed itself into a stunning pavilion endowed with women glittering sensuality and Italian glamour by Sergio Rossi. Every unique pair of shoes shined blindingly as a glorious & precious art work.

An imaginary tunnel of deep blue velvet curtains, wall mirrors and plasma screens brought to total immersion into the Sergio Rossi world. A “Primal Beauty” room where the spring summer 2011 prominent styles laid like sculptures on show cases. Plasma screens as picture frames showed beautiful women moving in imagery space.

In the party area sensual models on podiums as modern amazons, wearing the exclusive hand hammered brass accessories, welcomed the selected list of guests as Miss World Zhang Zilin, Miss Universe China Ziya Wei, famous fashion & jewellery designers Han Feng, Judy Hua, Catherine Xu and well known socialites Janice Wang, Lisa Lau move to the sound of DJ Ivy.

For Sergio Rossi the shoe is an object of worship to be adored as a talisman. In the next season, Francesco Russo, Creative Director, balanced decorative elements with pure lines. Brass shines on hand pounded heels or as a cage on leather. Exotic skins, suede, patent are combined with flashy blue, orange and red. Shoes, belts, cuffs and collars in luggage leather and metal become body armor, protecting and empowering.

Tod

The new Spring/Summer 2011 Tod’s collection for women focuses on the quality of the leathers, such as ultra supple calf leather and precious crocodile and python skins, which play with the colour nuances found in nature.
The mix of the surface textures with the underlying structure of the skins brings out the natural colour of the leather. When paired with a selection of colour combinations, such as neutral with primary colours or a mix of only primary colours, the leather still reveals its core natural hue despite the applied touches of vibrant colour.

The Ballerina shoe is reinvented with new details of a mirror accessory on the toe cap but of course in keeping with its traditional icon pebble details.


The iconic Gommino is back! The combination of special materials and a contemporary ethos convey the brand’s perfect balance between its strong traditional roots and its inherent modernity.

Men's
The new styles for the men’s SS11 collection in leather are the embodiment of modernity, luxury and practicality: The silhouettes are soft and the lines simple; and the entire collection is crafted in the finest materials.  An iconic and elegant collection that is absolutely contemporary. With refined details and artisanal cuts: a chic but simple collection designed for a fast paced and elegant life. 

The Competition shoe is a new design with a slightly thicker rubber sole for comfort. Available in a range of vintage leathers from washed grey to light blue.  With a slip-resistant rubber sole it is the perfect casual shoe to wear at the weekend.

The traditional men’s Gommino is presented with a twist! Maintaining the rubber pebbles but accessorized with a leather string detail just like the Tod’s “My Colours” bracelet.
 

SKAGEN DENMARK Black Label Collection


New Collection Marks Minimalist Revolution in Timepieces

The core style philosophy of ‘less is more’ – the very essence of Danish design – is making a timely impression worldwide, from fashion catwalks to interiors to everyday lifestyles. Skagen Denmark continues to drive the minimalistic movement forward this season with Black Label – Fall/Winter 2010 Men’s and Women’s Watch collections. Featuring simple elements fused with high-quality craftsmanship and a modern sensibility, the collection offers affordable luxuries to suit a range of personal styles.  

The Skagen Denmark Black Label Collection is inspired by a variety of naturally exquisite materials and the native Scandinavian surroundings of Charlotte and Henrik Jorst, husband-and-wife team and co-founders of the brand. While the designs of these timepieces draw inspiration from abstract arts and shapes, refined sensibility, maximum functionality and craftsmanship usually synonymous with only the highest-end luxury goods are maintained, resulting in a collection exhibiting core distinctions that stand the test of time.

A trio of uniquely different and stately – yet very wearable – watch designs comprises the Black Label Collection:
 
•    Executive – Inspired by professional drive in the workplace, each timepiece portrays prestige with minimalistic and unique qualities – ideal for creating a polished, tailored approach to dressing. Luxurious genuine Italian leather bands are versatile enough for any modern workplace. Polished stainless steel cases with mirror borders and distinct dial indexes crafted with two-hand, dual-time zones and dates within Swiss Made movements are among the key elements. 

•    Architect – Skagen Denmark combines the essence of today’s contemporary building structures with an expansive attention to detail in these timepieces. Rugged and industrial-design materials such as mesh and links ensure both durability and functionality. Brushed stainless steel cases, chrome mirrors borders and chronograph Swiss Made movements are just a few of the dignified elements that will stand the test of time. 

•    Cocktail – Each timepiece is the perfect harmony of design and composition, beauty and construction, providing the ultimate statement of elegance and sublime character. Styles feature metallic minimalism, redefining the approach of timeless glamour. Genuine diamonds and semi-precious stones combine with polished links and satin bands to create works of art that can be worn not only for special occasions, but also every day.   

The Skagen Denmark Black Label Collection is now available at the Skagen Denmark Flagship Store at iSQUARE, Skagen Denmark Counters at Pacific Place Seibu, Langham Place Seibu and LCX, or online at apac.skagen.com.

 

Embry 35th Anniversary Gala Show

The Magic of the Body

Shanghai – A fascination for the beauty of the female body has been for 35 years the driving force behind Embry's growing success. From the early days to today, the founder of Embry, Mr. Cheng reminds his growing team of designers and R&D people about his mission to help women to achieve the shape and comfort theydesire. The many Embry patents remind us that the lingerie gala in which we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Embry Group is the fruit of dreams and research.

In those 35 years Embry has seen the role of lingerie in a woman's life changing. From an industry focused on improving functionality and comfort – the part of thelingerie industry sees its role changing. Fashion is now the driving force as lingerie becomes Bodyfashion spanning from pure functional corsetry to sexy seduction, sport underwear and beachwear.

With the female body as the big star, the Gala Show is a celebration of these different roles of modern lingerie, illustrated by a cross selection out of the four brands that are the pillars of the Embry Group: Embry Form, Fandecie, Comfit and Liza Cheng.

The Gala Show consists of four Scenes:

BODY MAKE-UP, the opening of the show reflects on the essence of modern comfort. Its smoothing Second Skin role, being comfortableand functional, is the result of modern technology. At the beginning of the show the woman is pictured in her most sensualandnatural state. East and West come together in an expression of female perfection which every woman strives for wherever she lives. Colours of skin, powder and a finale of seductive lipstick shades illustrate the cosmetic role of lingerie.

BODY ARCHITECTURE presents the pinnacle of know-how in constructing a garment. Technicians, pattern makersand fabric technologists – are all an essential part of the growth of the Embry Group. We look at the woman in her modern role as a Urban Creature, actively part of building a modern society where she can enjoy work and leisure  Shaping garments help her to perform and look her best – activewear helps her to relax and stay in shape. Modern architecture has inspired form and colour.

BODY GORGEOUS reminds us that the role of lingerie in a woman's world is as a mood enhancer. On her Wedding Day she wants to feel like a Princess, beautiful and perfect, but also seductive and unique. This is the new role for Embry in lingerie where designers and stylists demonstrate that international trends have no secrets for them. Cute and sexy, adorable and girly, purely feminine and divine – we are looking at lingerie for a new generation of women who open up to a new language of seduction.
 
BODY BLOOM is a celebration of eternal female mystique. The language of flowers is intertwined with all the aspects of femininity. Here a Super Natural element is added. Not only seductive, but also illustrative of our quest not to loose our unity with Nature: from sweet and romantic to wild, organic exotic lushness. A celebration of colour and dynamism that illustrates a new world without boundaries and free of rigid up dividing lines. New printing and decoration technology  combines with changing lifestyles to open a new world in which leisure and pleasure are the keywords.
