2014, the “Year of the Woman” for Richard Mille

2014 was  the “Year of the Woman” for Richard Mille. The luxury brand presented a series of timepieces that play subtly with the three dimensionality of his watches, the combination of different materials that is one of his signatures and a more discreet technicality.

The flagship piece in this feminine collection is without doubt the Tourbillon RM 51-01 Tiger and dragon. Richard Mille’s collaborate with the famous Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh to create this exclusif timepiece.

They developed the concept of forms and shapes integrated within the watch’s movement, with a visual scene centered on the symbolic themes of the Tiger and the Dragon, with a tiger and a dragon clutching the tourbillon movement.

Why ‘Tiger and Dragon” ? They have deeply influenced Asian culture. The Tiger, considered as ‘Yang’ supremacy, therefore male, was viewed as a demon hunter. For the military, the tiger, symbol of courage, was represented on shields and weapons. The dragon, meanwhile, is a very common symbol in China, taking on many complex traits, as an emblem that can unify a group, or a larger nation. Today we closely associate it with prosperity and happiness.

A limited edition of 20 pieces in 18-carat white or red gold.The timepiece has a power reserve of 48 hours, indicated by a red line between 10 and 11 o’clock, the grade 5 titanium movement includes a torque limiting crown to protect the watch from possible overwinding.

Fancy a “French Décorateur”?

French is always considered as the top of “chic” when it comes to Fashion. But did you know that it was also the case for interior design?

cast

France has the oldest and the strongest interior design tradition. For centuries, and since the oldest monarchies, French decoration has been considered as the symbol of elegance and luxury. More than trends, it is a cultural heritage.

             frenchbathroom lecorbusier  Damien Langlois Meurine

Nowadays, the French reputation carries on. The symbol of interior elegance is now embodied by designers. International Jet set fight over French artists such as Pierre-Yves Rochon, Sybille de Margerie or Jacques Grange. In all the biggest cities of the world such as New-York, Hong-Kong, or Abu Dhabi, we are looking for the perfection of the French Touch. Simplicity inside Modernity, and Luxury through sobriety, this is French design paradox. Beyond beauty, it’s the French way of life that is exported on the international scene.

France still has the first rank in terms of design and it will probably continue for decades.
