    To mark the debut of Breitling's latest additions, Navitimer 32 & 36, Breitling together with Grau Studio, organized an exclusive dinner at Restaurant Petri in Stockholm, inviting close friends and associates of the brand.

    The Navitimer is one of the most recognizable watches ever made. It’s on collectors’ lists of the greatest watches of all time. What began in 1952 as a tool for pilots has gone on to mean something profound to every single person who has had this timepiece along on their personal journey.

    Now Breitling introduces two new additions to the Navitimer collection, in new 36- and 32-mm sizes for people who love the look and feel of a smaller diameter watch. But these showstoppers have so much more to offer than just their trim new sizes. Pops of pastel, mother-of-pearl, and traceable precious materials combine with the Navitimer’s distinct beaded bezel to create timepieces with a jewelry-like appeal—giving the legendary navigational watch a versatile elegance that’s ready for wherever the journey takes you.

    The campaign for the Navitimer 36 and 32 stars Academy Award-winning actor Charlize Theron who shares the personal journey that took her from remote South Africa to the international A-list. Theron’s NAVITIMERFOR THE JOURNEY campaign is part of an intimate series told by Breitling’s brand ambassadors in their own words.

    You can spot someone from across a room and know they are wearing a Navitimer. It’s just that recognizable,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “Charlize Theron so wonderfully represents this line because she too is an icon known the world over for her strength, beauty, talent, and powerful journey.”

    What we can learn from the collab between Acne Studios and Kylie Jenner

    Written by Emil Björnius by pari

    Kylie Jenner is the new face for Acne Studios’ “Dirty” campaign, and the
    Internet couldn’t be angrier.

    When news broke that Kylie Jenner was to be the face of Acne Studios' “Dirty” campaign, the digital realm was ablaze. The iconic imagery, captured by the distinguished Dutch photographer Carlijn Jacobs – known for her associations with the likes of Gucci and Chanel – portrayed Jenner in an unfamiliar light: draped in oversized, mud-splattered denim.

    While the Kardashians are no strangers to making headlines, this collaboration raised eyebrows. Acne Studios, the Swedish fashion powerhouse, has long been revered for its minimalist and avant-garde sensibilities. On the flip side, Kylie's sartorial journey has often journeyed through the opulent lanes of luxury and high-glam. You don’t get many hits for “Scandinavian minimalism” when googling Kylie Jenner, if you catch my drift.

    Kylie, despite her monumental influence, has faced critiques for perpetuating certain beauty ideals and her ultra-glamorous, jet-setting lifestyle. This collaboration brings to mind a similar shift when indie sensation, The Weeknd, teamed up with pop maestro Max Martin, evolving his sound from niche to universal.

    So, could this be Acne Studios' leap into more mainstream, expansive horizons? Or have they, in this venture, drifted from the ethos that endeared them to their loyal patrons? It is safe to say that finding the balance between her image and the Acne brand identity will be a challenge. Only time will reveal the lasting impact of #Acnegate.

    The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, renowned for its celebration of art, design, and performance, is set to host an extraordinary exhibition this September. This showcase will be the first of its kind in the UK, dedicated to the iconic fashion designer Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel.

    Featuring an impressive collection of over 200 outfits, as well as accessories, fragrances, and jewelry, this exhibition offers a captivating exploration of Chanel's groundbreaking contributions to fashion. It delves into her innovative design philosophy, which not only redefined elegance but also continues to shape contemporary women's fashion.

    Inspired by the original Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto exhibition at the Palais Galliera, Fashion Museum of the City of Paris, the V&A will reimagine this event, featuring rarely seen pieces from its own collection, alongside selections from Palais Galliera and the Patrimoine de CHANEL, the fashion House's heritage collections in Paris.

    Highlights include Chanel's earliest surviving garment from 1916, original creations for the Ballets Russes in 1924, outfits worn by Hollywood stars such as Lauren Bacall and Marlene Dietrich, and a pioneering example of Chanel's evening trousers. The exhibition covers Chanel's journey from designing for herself to anticipating the needs of the modern, independent woman.

    Through ten themed sections, it explores Chanel's groundbreaking use of fabric, innovative silhouettes, and revolutionary construction techniques. This exhibition offers a compelling glimpse into her influential sixty-year career, tracing her style evolution and enduring impact on fashion history.

    Intriguingly, the exhibition also sheds light on Chanel's British influences, including her adoption of tweed, collaborations with British textile firms, and her textile factory in Huddersfield. These connections add a fascinating dimension to the story of this iconic fashion pioneer.
