NMoto transforms BMW Scooter into Art Deco Golden Age Streamliner

NMoto an exclusive motorcycle manufacturer based out of Miami, has revealed its latest project – the Golden Age. Harkening back to the halcyon days of pre-war motoring when transportation was equal parts speed, style and skill, the Golden Age captures this sentiment in a modern incarnation.

Dubbed the Golden Age, the design is inspired by the 1936 KJ Henderson Courtney prototype created during the height of the Art Deco movement. The carbon fiber body kit features rounded front and rear subframes, a distinct double-nosed kidney grille inspired by BMW’s recent designs, Golden Age badges along the rear, and nostalgic headlights and turn signals. A Diamond Stitch leather seat offers a dash of premium comfort, and the rear FlexCase storage is large enough to fit two helmets.

The BMW C400X was designed to be the ideal daily driver for smooth city cruising, equipped with a 2020 350cc engine capable of tops speeds of over 90 mph and Automatic Stability Control. While mature in appearance, the NMoto Golden Age maintains the bike’s latest specs and technology including Bluetooth connectivity, heated seats, and a multifunction display.

Aside from the Boba-Fett-Like colorway highlighted in the campaign images, ‘Maroon/White’, ‘Red/Black’, and ‘Black/Brown’ color options are also available.

Production is limited to 100 units worldwide, and body kit prices start at $12,490 USD. The full range is now available for order on their website. Come into the beautiful world of NMoto.

Beauty for you and the planet. La Bouche Rouge, Paris, refillable and responsible.

Since launching in 2017, La Bouche Rouge has been defining a new standard in pure, sustainable beauty as the French Clean Beauty Pioneer.

Concerned that the Cosmetics industry is the third largest environmental polluter, and that 83% of the World’s water is polluted with microplastics, La bouche rouge has decided to avoid the use of plastic from the product itself, to the formula and production processes.

Starting with the lipstick as its icon, the Paris-based makeup Maison has set out to unite French traditional craftsmanship, and eco-responsibility. In 2020 the Maison has grown its collection to a full sustainable and revolutionary make up line – clean, microplastic-free and refillable. The range was created through the prism of the Maison’s four main values: responsibility, sustainability, traceability and creativity.

As we embrace this new year, we remain just as committed to sustainability as we were at our inception. Through their continued use of clean formulas in eco-conceived, refillable, responsible cases, all of which will remain free from microplastics, La Bouche Rouge will forever be dedicated to responsible beauty.

Chloé unveils its ephemeral boutique design in Soho

Iconic French maison Chloé unveils its ephemeral boutique design at its New York Home on Greene Street in SoHo.

The Chloé SoHo boutique’s ephemeral design centers on 17 sculptural art pieces that have been designed and crafted locally by New York-based makers Antoine Dumas and Benji Gavron. Materials act as a starting point for the pair, echoing Chloé creative director Gabriela Hearst’s approach to design, which often starts with researching lower impact fabrics such as deadstock wool or recycled cashmere. Dumas and Gavron have similarly used reclaimed wood to inform their ideas for this boutique.

Working with Antoine and Benji on the Chloé SoHo store was both inspiring and energizing. They worked with our values of sustainability and took them to the next level. They not only sourced and gathered reclaimed wood from New York water tanks and designed the pieces, but also made them from scratch themselves. Working with reclaimed wood can be challenging as they have to clean up old metal nails and handle other constraints. But they did it so brilliantly. I am so honored that they committed such long hours to the project and brought their exquisite taste, which is full of youthful New York energy. I couldn’t be prouder of the boys.

Bottega for Bottegas: Bottega Veneta will strip its platforms for other Italian brands to takeover

Forget social media takeovers, this is the real life thing. Over the holiday season, the Italian brand will be handing over its platforms to a series of local bottegas to promote and celebrate the rich landscape of Italy’s makers.

Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta has announced a new holiday initiative, partnering with 12 Italian bottegas and artisans for the ‘Bottega for Bottegas’ project. The new campaign is an act of solidarity with these makers, allowing Bottega Veneta to use its global reach to shine a spotlight on the work of the bottegas from across Italy.

We are thrilled to launch Bottega for Bottegas alongside Italian artisans with whom we share the common values of creativity and craftsmanship. We are proud to offer worldwide visibility to these ‘Bottegas’ that are deeply rooted in Italian culture, specially at a time where smaller entities continue to be impacted by the pandemic. It is with honor that we have passed on our advertising spaces, website, newsletters, and store windows and we hope that this will further highlight their excellence at a global level.

Bartolomeo Rongone, CEO of Bottega Veneta.

The 12 bottegas come from all over the country, and specialize in products ranging from Krumiri Rossi biscuits and Pastificio Martelli pasta to Orsoni ceramics and Amatruda paper. The project includes an offline campaign – with products from these bottegas on display in Bottega Veneta stores in Italy, and an advertising campaign across Milan – and an online presence.

The online element of the initiative includes newsletters, advertising and space on the house’s website. While the products will not be available from the Bottega Veneta webstore, customers will be directed to shop directly from the bottega in question.

The first ‘Bottega for Bottegas’ project is now live, with the same initiative set to return each holiday season to continue supporting the independent businesses. Come into the beautiful world of Bottega Veneta.

On December 16th 1946, Christian Dior officially inaugurated his Couture House in Paris, on the 30 Avenue Montaigne. Today, the Maison Dior celebrates 75 years of history, heritage and creative passion.​

I had stopped in front of these two adjacent hotels of the Avenue Montaigne, number 28 and 30. I boasted about the small proportions, the subtle elegance with no overwhelming ‘pedigree’, to the friend who was with me.

Maserati MC20 Fuoriserie Edition for David Beckham: a love letter for the Magic City of Miami

A letter written to the magical city of Miami: this is how MC20 Fuoriserie Edition for David Beckham was born. The ambassador of the Italian automotive brand becomes a designer with the help of the Maserati Centro Stile. Thanks to this union, the passion of the British champion for his second home city takes shape in a customized car that exemplifies the concepts of performance and sportiness: the MC20.

This project is part of Maserati’s Fuoriserie customization program, which in its various styles allows customers to create their tailor-made Maserati. The car, intended as a symbol of true luxury in the third millennium, shows the world its unique nature and personal character. Maserati Fuoriserie is a blank canvas and the House of the Trident truly offers an array instruments to create with. The rest is left to the clients taste and inspiration, giving them the opportunity to set their own trends and express their personality.

After a personalized and collaborative design process, Beckham and the designers of the Maserati Centro Stile created the MC20 Fuoriserie Edition for David Beckham. This car translates true passion into a carbon fiber monocoque, entirely Made in Italy, and powered by a patented V6 petrol engine derived from Formula 1 technologies.

In this story, the starting point is Miami, the home of Beckham’s US soccer club, while the end result is black and pink, a chromatic dichotomy, as well as the interplay between glossy and matt surfaces. The team colors are, black and pink, and the uniforms are characterized by contrasting glossy-matt treatments.

As car designers, our mission is to offer a holistic experience. This value guides our Brand’s stylistic research, making each Maserati uniquely recognizable. Our customization program is another example of our brand’s goal to create singular experiences for our customers: Maserati Fuoriserie is a blank canvas, on which Maserati clients can write their own stories and unleash their creativity, making their dreams come true. Designing this special edition MC20 with David, as with all our Fuoriserie projects, is also an ode to the Brand’s past, taking us back to a time when every car was hand-built to the client’s requests, giving life to a one-off, a true ‘fuoriserie’.

Klaus Busse, Head of Maserati Design

Starting from this as an inspiration, the bodywork features a glossy black tone which contrasts with the Trident logos on the grille and on the C-pillar, in black, but with an opaque finish. The Maserati lettering on the rear is also opaque, while the MC20 badge on the door is pastel pink, as are the Brembo brake calipers.

The interior, in leather and Alcantara, is black with contrast-stitching in pink. The backrests, in Alcantara, are worked with a tone-on-tone laser engraving method and the headrest features a three-dimensional pastel pink embroidery.

I have always been a car enthusiast, so to be part of designing and creating my MC20 through the Fuoriserie customisation programme has been an amazing experience. Cars are about individual taste whether it’s the model, colour or small personal details on the inside. It has been incredible to collaborate with the Maserati team and designers to create this one-off car that is inspired by my second home, Miami and my football club there. It is a joy to be behind the wheel.

David Beckham

Finally, in the center tunnel  between the two seats, a personalized nameplate with a glossy-matte effect: at the top, next to the Trident, the Maserati Fuoriserie lettering is pastel pink, at the bottom the italics “For David” appears with an aluminum effect.

Miami is a land of magical nights and delicate sunsets. MC20 Fuoriserie Edition for David Beckham seems designed to cross this subtle line between day and night, between pink, the color that greets and bids a farewell with each sunset, and black, that rocks us into the realm of dreams: a realm in which space and time become relative concepts, and you can express yourself through a completely customized car.
