Bang-Bang in Watchland

Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland, 2016-May-27 — /Fashion Talk/ — On March 22nd, the Goldgena Project was launched with the goal of creating affordable mechanical watches with complete transparency regarding their origin and costs. The aim is also to shake up the ‘Swiss Made’ label and the traditional approach to distribution and marketing. The community is invited to share their opinion and even get involved in each stage of the project. At the time of writing, more than 3,500 people have signed up, and our site is recording more than 28,000 visits and 45,000 views every month.

our first design

______________________

BRIEF SUMMARY OF PHASE 1

MARCH, 30TH – CHAPTER 1: TTO Label – Total Transparency on Origin DISCOVER
The Swiss Made label can be obscure and ultimately mislead consumers, as most of the components are manufactured abroad. The Goldgena Team has decided to make their watches with complete transparency, and have thus created the TTO label; Total Transparency on Origin.

APRIL, 13TH – CHAPTER 2: Transparency on Prices and Fixed Multiplier DISCOVER
Goldgena will be communicating and explaining the production cost of their watches. In addition, by selling directly to the end consumer they will be able to apply an unmatched modifier of 3.5 to the production price.

APRIL 27TH – CHAPTER 3: Online Sale, Pop-Up Stores and Sponsorship DISCOVER
The Goldgena Project is planning to foster community power by offering a commission of 10% to anyone who generates a sale. In addition, an application will allow potential customers to meet watch owners, so that they can see the product before buying.

PHASE 2 – FRIST DESIGN UNVEILED

MAY 11TH – CHAPTER 1: Non-Swiss Made, Swiss Made or Swiss Manufacturing? DISCOVER
We wanted our first model to feel mechanical from every angle, so we made the dial an extension of the movement. We wanted the case to be simple, elegant and ergonomic, while still overflowing with character. Fine horns and crosspiece give it a particular, recognizable aesthetic.

In-house or standard movement? Non-swiss made, swiss made or swiss manufacturing? The community shares his opinion.

JUNE-AUGUST: Development and Crowdfunding
During the summer, the Goldgena Project will share every detail of the development. In September a crowdfunding campaign will be launched. The detailed program will be available end on May at www.goldgena.com

The Goldgena Project Dream Team

The Goldgena Project is run by a small watch design workshop called cosanova, and is currently made up of 3 people. Founded in 2005 by the designer Claudio D’Amore, the workshop is based in the heart of Swiss watchmaking, in Lausanne, not far from Geneva. In little more than 11 years, the cosanova workshop has had the honor of working with around forty watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, Parmigiani, Montblanc, Oris, Eberhard and even Hautlence.

The Founder, Claudio D’Amore
Born in Switzerland to Italian parents, in 2000 Claudio D’Amore (40) graduated from the ECAL (Lausanne Design School) with an HES degree in design. He then set off for London to work with Ross Lovegrove, the famous London-based designer, where he worked on the design of several watches for Tag Heuer (V4, Carrera Caliber 360, Golf Watch). Upon his return to Switzerland in 2005, he founded cosanova.

Sterling, Viginia, November 05, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Throughout his 13 years serving honorably in the U.S. military or his time now working in government, BOASY Supply Company owner, Sergio Romano has always had to wear a lanyard. Fashion wasn’t really a luxury in the military and he realized, after separating and starting his civilian career, that one of the most worn and visible business clothing accessories has never really evolved and needed to be updated.

Mr. Romano started BOASY Supply Company with an idea in mind; take something simple and make it better and affordable. Almost three years later, this idea has finally come to market. The patented y-shape lanyard design is sleek, fashion forward and solves common problems with today’s lanyards like straps that constantly flip, tangle or the lanyard never remains stationary becoming more of an annoyance and distraction vice a fashion accessory or marketing tool. The lanyards are made of 100% leather or Portuguese cork cord and gold or silver-plated zinc alloy metal which when combined, creates a high-end look, unlike anything currently on the market. The lanyards are assembled, packaged and shipped from Virginia to locations worldwide.

Say Good-Bye to Uncomfortable Spandex! – Featured Product

With a staggering 93% of women that own spandex griddles and garments, shapewear is the one product that women hate to love. But lucky for us, this problem is now fixed: the European made, shapewear line called Babalette.

Shapeware can be a total godsend. It helps smooth everything out and give you that extra bit of confidence to wear a satin skirt or a body-hugging dress. But sometimes, the folks who manufacture shapewear get a little carried away.

After all, who doesn’t remember when Octavia Spencer recounted how Melissa McCarthy had to take her Spanx off at an award show because they were so painful!

Babalette, Inc. is a revolutionizing shapewear line that solves all the problems of the existing shapewear brands in the market. It’s genius designs are comfortable and made with patented breathable materials that will allow you to wear them all day long. “Even at the office”, according to the testimonies of customers who have tried and love to Babalette.

What is more, its European designs go beyond shaping with a hugging comfort. The designs include seamless edges, attractive lace finishes, and even a butt lifting thong-effect.

Our personal favorite is Babalette’s Anti-Cellulite Collection, which is made of a patented fabric that contains tens of thousands of microcapsules with ingredients used to target cellulite like caffeine or anti-fatty acids.

So don’t throw the towel and give up on shapewear quite yet, and get a hold of Babalette’s sophisticated garments!

Quest For Plus Size Women’s Fashions

It’s not always easy for plus size women to find clothing, shoes and accessories that not only compliment their body shapes, but are comfortable and fit into their life-styles as well. After years of fighting the frustration of shopping and not finding a good selection of quality women’s plus size clothing in local stores and malls, Bob and Diana Gillig from Elkton, Maryland, pulled their efforts and research together and developed a website www.shapelyplus.com, designed specifically for plus size women who may have experienced some of the same shopping frustrations.

The website offers pages chock-full of great information for plus size women, how to identify their body shape, whether they have a tall or petite frame, and reasons why certain fashions look better on one shape versus another. “The way your clothes fit your shape and make you look when you glance in the mirror can make you feel great about yourself, or absolutely miserable”, said Diana. “We strive to find the best fashion trends and choices for plus size women, whether tall or petite, and bring them together on our website”.

Finding great online retail stores that offer real plus size clothing choices was just part of their research. They spend hours each week checking the latest fashion trends and styles to make sure they are only offering the most up-to-date fashion information, and focus on fashion trends for plus size women.

Many times, some of the featured retailers for plus size women’s fashions offer special sale discounts on dresses, separates, casual or corporate wear, swimsuits, maternity clothes, formals, wedding dresses, and dresses to outfit an entire bridal party. Numerous stores also offer accessories, handbags and shoes.

A section of their site is dedicated just for men who shop for their plus size women. They may be in need of a special gift, or plan to buy something special for their lady, but are not sure how to read plus size charts. Pages on the site explain fashion terminology, and offer information to help men make good fashion choices for their plus size women.

According to Bob and Diana, the research continues, and new information on current fashion trends and styles for plus size women is always being included on the site. To learn more about Shapely Plus, you may visit www.shapelyplus.com or contact Bob and Diana at drg@shapelyplus.com.

Acclaimed New Jewellery from Vanessa Kandiyoti Arrives at Avenue 32 Online Fashion Store

Vanessa Kandiyoti creates jewellery that is beautiful and valuable, but also rich in meaning and symbolism. The starting points for each unique and curious design are the beliefs and imagery of her Turkish heritage; and yet it was a simple love of stones that set this talented young designer on the path to creating her eponymous jewellery label, now available at Avenue 32.

Belgian-born and Turkish-inspired, Vanessa Kandiyoti had always admired jewellery, art and culture, but had originally studied Law, until her travels through Latin America affirmed her love of jewels and stones. This was the genesis of her jewellery and design work.

Using the unforgettable imagery of her beliefs and superstitions, the designer has created a range of necklaces, bracelets and charms which marry beautiful 18 karat white, rose and yellow gold with magical diamonds, sapphires and other conflict free stones.

Her classic, mythological designs are more than just attractive fashion pieces but good luck charms; talismanic symbols of good luck and safety. One of the most predominant symbols recurring throughout the collection is the traditional Evil Eye.

The Evil Eye is a charm that is worn or used as decoration, and protects its owner from misfortune caused by the envy or ill wishes of others; whether envious of material possessions, beauty, health or offspring.

Available in a variety of bracelets and necklaces, each Evil Eye piece in the Vanessa Kandiyoti collection is more than a pretty fashion jewellery piece. It is a charm to be worn throughout a lifetime and cherished for more than good looks.

Now, these latest hypnotic designs from Vanessa Kandiyoti are available from the designer’s very own Avenue 32 boutique. Avenue 32 is your luxury shopping neighbourhood online. A place to purchase luxury clothing and accessories from world leading fashion labels, along with fine and fashion jewellery from the most acclaimed and distinctive creators in the industry.

Of course, for us, the highlight of the evening was the unveiling of some of the key pieces from our new Autumn Winter 2012 collection, which won’t be launched until July 19 and from the feedback we got from our guests on the night, we are confident that our latest collection will live up to our fans’ great expectations.”

As well as enjoying a look at the new Autumn Winter collection, guests at the party were also treated to 25 Euro Gift Cards to spend on the new collection in store, and indulged in a selection of Babuska vodka cocktails and bottles of Tiger Beer. With this successful party over, and with the official launch of their long-awaited new collection two weeks away, AllSaints are not only looking forward to their next launch, but also hope the event will further cement their position as a brand that’s not only passionate about fashion, but also has a fascination with music too.

The spokesperson for AllSaints continues: “At AllSaints, we see music and fashion in the same light; we love both equally, and we think that they are linked in a number of ways. Because we care about music, we launched our popular Basement Sessions featuring exclusive interviews and performances from some of the music world’s most-popular and legendary artists. Our Berlin Fashion Week launch party was a great way to give the people of Berlin something back, we love the city, its culture and its people, so why not share our love of music and fashion with them during this exciting time?”

Hunter wins New Footwear Product of the Year at The Shooting Industry awards

Hunter’s Balmoral Hawksworth shooting boots received the prestigious ‘New Footwear Product of the Year’ award at the recent IPC Shooting Industry awards. Competition was tough with leading field sports brands competing for the title. The Hawksworth stood out with its combination of classic design and modern technology. These innovative shooting boots use an original time-served Hunter design as the base, complemented by new technology including Sympatex® lining and rugged tread for a style that looks smart, gives great ankle support and lasts well.

Thanks to the lining, the shooting boots are waterproof, breathable, and comfortable for day-long wear. Their Balmoral multi-layer outsole with multi-directional cleats offers excellent traction and mud release in all conditions. Pull tabs allow the wearer to remove the boots with ease.

“Hunter Balmoral Hawksworth boots really are the business. You can walk in them all day long,” said one of the judges of his decision to award the footwear.

“The recognition from the industry that Hunter is continuing to develop and pioneer is very rewarding for us. Hunter continues to be “outstanding in every field”, and without doubt offers the best boots for the serious field sports enthusiast,” commented Chris Dewbury, Sales Director at Hunter.

The Balmoral Hawksworth combines tumbled and full grain leathers. It features a unique multi-layer outsole, and a mud-guard that forms a protective barrier around the side of the foot, providing excellent protection against wear and tear.

Two sets of shock absorbing insoles allow the wearer to vary the fit, making the shooting boots ideal for those who want optimum durability and exceptional comfort in the field.

The Balmoral Hawksworth is available in sizes 8 – 14. RRP £285.
