The great thing about concepts is you can go all out with your imagination. While you envision a conceptual superyacht, why not make it flying one right, Lazzarini? The Italian firm has made some jaw-dropping concepts like the luxurious superyacht concept with a gaping hole in its hull or the idea that came with a glass-bottomed lounge. They even did one magnanimous shark-inspired $597 million megayacht concept with three swimming pools, three helicopters, and eight jet skis. Outdoing the aforementioned creative concepts is AirYacht, the cool-looking aircraft/superyacht.



Instead of bringing the best of aircraft to yachts and vice versa, in typical style, Lazzarini has just combined the two defying industry rules and expanding design ideologies like never before. AirYacht will come in a carbon fibre structure that will help it achieve a speed of 60 knots. This is done with the help of four solar-powered electric propellers and two helium-filled blimps, allowing it to fly, hover, and float on the water too. The helium-powered beast consists of two twin airships that look like floating balloons, and sandwiched between them is a 262-foot hull.




Lazzarini shared the luxurious AirYacht, can take up to 22 guests on a trip of a lifetime. The superyacht flaunts 10 cabins for passengers, five on each airship, plus a shipowner suite in the central area, which offers unmatched 360-degree views. The side structures are connected to the primary through four bridges to balance the whole entity.




The Sun reports, Lazzarini Design Studio explained, “The AirYacht is not an airship for public transportation or touristic purposes. It was conceived for a private owner with a vision of mega yacht/aviation evolution. The AirYacht is pushed down from the rotation of the engines and can stand in the water through depressurization of helium and ballast anchor system. It can sail quietly in the water with a speed of five knots.” If the owner wishes, Lazzarini can throw in a helipad too! It’s a superyacht meant for the super-rich who want the best of both worlds and the best machine to sail in the world.

For FW22, Kim Jones Made Dior’s “New Look” New Again

Published

on

for-fw22,-kim-jones-made-dior’s-“new-look”-new-again

Christian Dior‘s design DNA runs through Kim Jones‘s latest outing for the house, a Fall/Winter 2022 menswear collection celebrating the maison’s 75th anniversary.

Free of the bells and whistles that have tended to clutter Jones’s past work for Dior, his new range was a straightforward reinterpretation of house codes including the bar jacket and “cannage” quilting.

The former, a Dior signature tailored to accentuate the waist and hips, was fitted to create the illusion of an hourglass figure on the rather straight, curve-less silhouette of the male body.

Skimming the waist and flaring out at the hips, Jones’s take on the bar jacket smacked as a contemporary reinterpretation of Dior’s cinched New Look.

Offsetting the body-conscious fit of Jones’s outwear, relaxed sweats and slouchy, ultra-luxe takes on the carpenter pant offered more casual options.

As for Dior’s cannage, a quilting technique applied to the Lady bag and other popular accessories, Jones whipped up patent leather jackets and coats topstitched with the criss-cross pattern.

There were other plenty of other references to Monsieur Dior’s influence — a nod to the founder’s love of gardening, button-downs were worn under sheer sheaths delicately embroidered with bloom-shaped sequins and beads. There was also Jones’s much-buzzed-about Birkenstock collaboration, which included a flower-embroidered take on the footwear giant’s Tokio clog.

Another green-thumbed touch, one model clutched a leather bag molded to perfectly fit a bouquet of roses.

Bolstering Jones’s back-to-basics approach to references this season, he enlisted Stephen Jones — milliner to Dior since 1996 — to craft sleek, pincushion-like berets.

adidas & Pharrell’s Premium Basics Are Winter Essentials

adidas-&-pharrell’s-premium-basics-are-winter-essentials

Pharrell is one of those people that can just do it all. From music to skincare, there’s nothing with the Pharrell name on it that doesn’t hit the spot. That goes for the artist’s adidas range, too. Pharrell has been working closely with the Three Stripes for several years now, covering all sides of the sportswear equation but moving past the mountains of grail-status shoes, his latest work with the brand forgoes hype for complete simplicity.

adidas x Pharrell Premium Basics show that sometimes details are overrated. Looking to his signature bold, primary color palette, Pharrell’s Premium Basics strip things back to the essentials. The gender-neutral collection puts high-quality jersey builds on a pedestal with its lack of complication.

Better yet, the whole collection is constructed from cotton overseen by the Better Cotton Initiative — a non-profit that promotes a more sustainable and ethical approach to cotton farming. It comes as part of adidas’ 2022 goal of becoming more sustainable, a move embodied in the introduction of the Choose to Give Back program. As part of Give Back, adidas customers can send used product from any brand back to us via the adidas Creator’s Club app to be reused or resold in return for 200 Creators Club points and up to $40 of adidas vouchers.

Sweaters

In any basics range, we head straight for the crewnecks and hoodies. Simply put, the modern wardrobe can never have too many. Thanks to the color palette of adidas x Pharrell Premium Basics range, these sweats become central players in your layered outfits, anchoring them with a bold color. And when summer rolls around, they become the star of the show all alone.

T-Shirts

Much like sweats, high-quality T-shirts are always in demand. These pure cotton pieces are cut from BCI-certified cotton which is part of adidas’ 2022 move towards a more sustainable collection. We’re particularly loving the bold orange and dusty purple hues.

Bottoms

Whether you’re a shorts or pants person, adidas x Pharrell Premium Basics has you covered. Pure cotton French terry forms the classic foundation for the block-color pieces. While the jersey shorts may be reserved for at-home use for now, they will really come into their own during spring and summer.

West Coast-based financier Olivier de Givenchy already owns a stylish Hal Levitt-designed mansion in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills, where the heir to the Givenchy fashion empire and his wife Zoë regularly entertain high-profile guests, such as Greece’s Princess Marie-Chantal and English singer Robbie Williams. Records reveal the power couple have plumped up their Los Angeles real estate portfolio with a seaside vacation getaway, picking up a Hamptons-style spread in Malibu’s exclusive Point Dume enclave.

Records show the Givenchys doled out nearly $14.5 million for their new Malibu digs, which were custom-built in 2001. That’s a slight discount off the original $15.5 million ask, but it’s still well over the $11 million tech entrepreneur and investor Asher Delug paid for the property back in 2016.

Nestled amid a gated 1.4-acre parcel — on one of the area’s most sought-after streets — the deed to the two-story house comes with card-coded Riviera 1 access to an exclusive beach. The cedar-shingled and white-trimmed structure features a columned portico entry, which opens to seven bedrooms and six baths spread across more than 6,300 square feet of most white living space. There are antique walnut floors, wood-plank walls and clerestory windows throughout, plus endless walls of glass that provide seamless indoor-outdoor environs while bathing the home in natural light.

Main-level highlights include a formal living room resting beneath a majestic coffered ceiling, and displaying a fireplace flanked by built-in display cases and French doors that spill out to a patio. A fireside dining room has a duo of built-in china cabinets, while the gourmet kitchen is outfitted with high-end stainless appliances, stone countertops and a spacious eat-in island. An adjacent prep area connects to a breakfast nook, and elsewhere in the house are a cozy den, workout room and an office.

Upstairs, a luxe master retreat boasts a soaring vaulted ceiling, sitting area and walk-in closet, plus a sky-lit bath equipped with an oversized soaking tub. Outdoors, the picturesque resort-like grounds hold a covered al fresco dining and lounging patio sporting a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, and a pool and spa surrounded by a grassy lawn and pool house. Hemming it all up: a full-size tennis/basketball court and three-car garage topped by a guesthouse.

Olivier de Givenchy is a nephew of iconic French couturier Hubert de Givenchy, who founded House of Givenchy in 1952 and reportedly sported a $200 million net worth upon his 2018 death. Today, Olivier serves as head of the U.S. West Region for J.P. Morgan Private Bank, overseeing offices in California, Washington, Arizona and Colorado; wife Zoë produces a collection of linens, flatware and dinnerware.

Matt Rapf of Pritchett-Rapf and Terre Steinbeck of Rodeo Realty served as the listing agents for the Malibu property; Eric Haskell of The Agency repped the buyers.
