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.
