Eat lunch at the Edge of Space for € 120,000

Founded back in 2016, French company Zephalto is now offering trips to the ‘edge of space’. Expected to launch its space tourism option next year, Zephalto is now selling ‘pre-reservation tickets’ for trips into space.

Priced at € 10,000 EUR (approximately $ 10,900 USD), the pre-reservation tickets holds a chance to reserve a seat for low-carbon trips in a pressurized capsule attached to a stratospheric balloon. The trip in the capsule, dubbed ‘Celeste’, costs € 120,000 EUR (approximately $ 131,100 USD) and takes travelers to an altitude of 15.5 miles. Currently, the first flights set for late 2024 to mid-2025 have all filled up but pre-reservation slots for mid-2025 onwards are available.

Embark on the most pristine spaceship of the 21st century

The Celeste carries six passengers and two pilots up into the stratosphere at four meters per second, reaching the maximum altitude in just 90 minutes. Once settled, the trip in the capsule designed by French designer Joseph Dirand will last three hours with guests taking in the view of space and Earth while enjoying Michelin-star meals prepared by renowned French chefs and carefully selected wine by a lauded sommelier.

Zephalto is currently working closely with France’s space agency, CNES, to ensure its helium powered balloon meets the same European Aviation Safety Agency certifications as a commercial aircraft. The company has completed three piloted partial test flights ahead of the set launches from France and has plans to bring its space tourism experience to the rest of the world.

Johnny Depp signs new $20 million USD Dior Sauvage deal

French Maison Dior has officially extended its partnership with actor Johnny Depp. The LVMH-owned French luxury house has resigned a new three-year $20 million USD deal with Depp for Dior Sauvage. This makes it the largest male fragrance deal ever signed.

According to Variety, Depp’s Dior Sauvage deal eclipses Robert Pattinson’s $12 million USD Dior Homme deal and Brad Pitt’s $7 million USD Chanel No.5 deal (one short clip, and one photoshoot). Depp has fronted the Sauvage fragrance since its launch in 2015. Dior’s move to continue its partnership with Depp comes after the Maison gained much scrutiny for supporting the actor after a U.K. court ruled against him in his 2020 libel suit from his ex-wife Amber Heard. Since then, Depp has prevailed after he won the defamation trial against Heard. Following the win, Dior Sauvage sales reportedly skyrocketed with Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH citing that the “image of Johhny Depp” is one of the main reasons that the fragrance has become “a remarkable success”.

The announcement of the Dior deal comes just as Depp is expected to be at Cannes Film Festival for the May 16 world premiere of Maïwenn’s historical drama ‘Jeanne du Barry’, where he plays King Louis XV. He will also be attending a Dior dinner on May 17 prior to heading to London for a Jeff Beck tribute the following day, where he will perform alongside Eric Clapton and Rod Stewart. With the new deal between Dior and Depp, it appears that the French luxury Maison is not quite ready to give up on their relationship just yet.

Hublot Big Bang Unico in a summery Sky Blue

The Sky’s the Limit. The Big Bang Unico Sky Blue brings together three classic Hublot elements – the iconic Big Bang model, its Unico manufacture movement and ceramic, the Swiss watch luxury watchmaker’s material of choice.

Here comes the summer! As the world’s most popular colour, blue symbolises new horizons, kindles a desire to get away and inspires new avenues for exploration. Fly the colours of the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue 42 mm on your wrist. A shimmering sky lends a light, playful hint of freedom to the ceramic of the case.

Ceramic, a material in which Hublot has become an expert. In 2019, Hublot created brightly coloured ceramic in a patented world first. Since then, the brand has had almost every Pantone colour at its disposal. The Big Bang Unico Sky Blue has turned this feat of innovation into your new go-to material.

The dial, like a cloudless sky, reveals the column wheel of the HUB1280 manufacture calibre, a self-winding chronograph movement with a 72-hour power reserve. As its Unico manufacture movement gently tracks the easy passage of time, the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue evokes a sense of brightness and timelessness.

The white luminescent hands and indices, which appear suspended, mark the hours spent in joyous reunions. The brand’s six iconic screws stand out against the blue of the bezel, which is also made from polished and satin-finished ceramic. Developed using the brand’s unique processes to produce this exclusive colour and unrivalled comfort, this high-tech material is hypoallergenic and adapts to the temperature of the skin. 

Lightweight and ultra-resistant to oxidation and scratching, it is the perfect companion for all your summer activities. The new Summer edition of the Big Bang Unico comes with a Velcro strap with sports fastener, as well as its iconic lined natural rubber version with a titanium deployant buckle for those long evenings under the stars.

The dream of possessing our own little corner of blue sky is universal! This limited edition of just 200 pieces will be available for € 24.900, from the e-boutique and at the Maison’s 130 points of sale located in some of the world’s most iconic and exclusive cities.

Lucky charm and symbol of good fortune flower

Christian Dior Diorissimo in Baccarat flacon

At French Maison Christian Dior, their heritage is a timeless source of inspiration.​

The Lily of the valley held a special place in Christian Dior’s heart, and he always kept it close to him. As a confidant, he placed it in an elaborate reliquary that he kept secretly in his jacket pocket. As a fetish, he hid it in the hem of haute couture models on collection days. For him, the lily of the valley was more than just a beautiful bloom – it was a symbol of good luck and prosperity.​

From his lucky charm and symbol of good fortune flower, Christian Dior dreamt of capturing its scent in a perfume that would blend superstition and intuition. This dream became a reality with Diorissimo: an ode to spring and youth played solo by a reinvented lily of the valley. The perfume was dear to Christian Dior’s heart, and the first flacon was the only one he personally designed. ​

Close to nature and its floral architecture, Christian Dior created the ‘Tulip’ line in 1953 before dedicating his lucky charm flower, lily of the valley, as the theme of his Spring/Summer 1954 Haute Couture collection. This collection featured elegant designs that incorporated the lily of the valley in intricate ways, showcasing Dior’s love for the flower.​

Christian Dior’s love for the lily of the valley demonstrates how their heritage continues to inspire them today. It is a reminder that the things they love and are passionate about can become a part of their personal brand and inspire them to create something truly special.​
