Continuing with its efforts to achieve its goal of making 50 percent of its total sales electric by 2025, Swedish auto marque Volvo has now unveiled its second-ever all-electric model: the C40 Recharge.
The C40 Recharge represents the future of Volvo and shows where we are going. It is fully electric, offered online only with a convenient care package and will be available for quick delivery. Getting a new Volvo was never this attractive.
Henrik Green, chief technology officer at Volvo
No doubt based on similar design sensibilities as the previously unveiled XC40 Recharge, the new car takes on a slightly more coupe-esque aesthetic, the rear end of its roof curving downwards to meet its tail. While details regarding its performance specs remain scarce, we know that it utilizes a twin-motor setup powered by a 78kWh battery that can be fast-charged to 80 percent in roughly 40 minutes. It’ll carry a range of 420km initially, with future software updates expected to increase that figure. Much like the XC40 Recharge, it’ll also be equipped with a sophisticated infotainment system jointly developed with Google. Based on the Android OS, the system will support a whole range of Google apps and built-in services including Google Maps, Google Assistant, and the Google Play Store.
Pricing for this sharp little Swedish number isn’t available as of this writing, but expect it to be a modest step up from the XC40 Recharge, which starts around $55,000 before incentives. Our bet is the C40 Recharge hangs a price tag from the rear mirror closer to the $60,000 mark before incentives.
The C40 Recharge will go in production this fall and will be built alongside the XC40 Recharge at the Volvo Cars manufacturing plant in Ghent, Belgium.
While there’s no precise release date for the Volvo C40 Recharge, Volvo says production will begin this fall alongside its XC40 sibling. You need not line up outside your local dealer to grab your own, either; in another first for Volvo, the C40 Recharge is available exclusively online. Production begins later this fall, so you’ve got plenty of time to warm up that clicking finger.

These words by Christian Dior still inspire each one of the French Maison’s actions. Keeping alive a long tradition of creation, their team is made of women and men who are passionate about their craft and driven by a strong will to constantly innovate. Present since the beginning, especially since the launch of the New Look in 1947, they inherited from this creative passion which is, more than a value, the signature of Maison Dior.

With this new launch, Guerlain highlights its commitment to sustainability with an innovative new formula featuring high levels of naturally derived ingredients. From now on, they set themselves the objective of a minimum of 90% of ingredients of natural origin – according to ISO standard 16128 – in each new make-up formula, whenever its possible.

They say you should always embrace your inner child. So we figure, why not make your childhood dreams come true? Especially when it involves diamonds, sapphires, and gold.
Since they arrived on the scene in the early 90’s, jelly rings have been synonymous with childhood crushes and playtime proposals. At some point we all had someone down on one knee in the school yard asking for our hand with one of these sugary sweets.
British jeweler Taylor & Hart has just created a stunning ring based on Haribo’s Friendship Ring candy. Recalling childhood memories when kids would ‘propose’ to their crush on the playground during recess, this ring is all grown up with a 2.70ct cabochon yellow sapphire set in a 18ct yellow gold basket of 40 fancy-intense yellow diamonds, and 224 custom cut rubies totalling a weight of 3.60ct are invisible set into the 18ct rose gold band.
To make this beauty the ultimate throwback, we’re paying homage to the most luxurious of all gummies: the red and yellow jelly ring. We hope this duo-colour palette brings you back to simpler times. When fun brought love to life and the only thing that could keep you away from your love was having to run home for tea before the street lights came on.
Taylor & Hart
Taylor & Hart always go all the way for love. With this design, they are capturing the pure magic of falling head over heels for the first time. Because no matter how old you are, your special day should be filled with the same thrill you felt with your first crush.
A funny fact: priced at £25,000, we even estimate that you could purchase over 1,250,000 of the 2p jelly sweets for the same value of this ring!
Spring and summer are slowly coming. Lighter clothes are slowly being removed from the closet. And summer clothing also includes summer footwear. When the open shoes, sandals and flip-flops raappear, people start to take more care of their feet. A must! And this summer maybe more then ever!
After dropping its fairly apt surgical adaption of the classic slip-on mule last week, French Margiela now introduces a transparent iteration of its quintessential iconic Tabi shoe. Introduced at the very first show of the Maison, for the Spring-Summer 1989 season, the Tabi shoe takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese split-toe sock, bearing the same name.
A staple of the French fashion house since its first show over 30 years ago, the split-toe look is synonymous with the Maison, having been reworked countless times since. A browse through the Margiela webstore alone draws up a surfeit of Tabi styles, while a recent collaboration with Reebok gave the look an entirely new audience.
Now though, for the first time, the fashion house has used a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) material to craft its all-new fully transparent Tabi lace-ups. Sat on a wide black sole with a comfortable leather footbed, Margiela’s latest release is completed with two eyelets on the medial side of each shoe for added breathability.
Maison Margiela’s Transparent Tabi Lace-Ups are available at Maison Margiela’s boutiques and selected stores worldwide, retailing at €765 (approximately $930 USD), plus the price of a pedicure treatment. Come into the beautiful world of Maison Margiela.
Today, German carmaker Porsche has just unveiled the latest generation of its track-ready sports car, the new 911 GT3 – 992 generation. Once again an extremely capable track-oriented car, it will certainly be pure adrenaline behind the wheel. To coincide with this launch, sister-company Porsche Design has transferred the thrill of high-performance racing into a distinctive chronograph available exclusively to buyers of the new Porsche 992 GT3, and just like the car, it will be fully customisable. Here’s the new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3.
Knowing the strong connection between Porsche cars and Porsche Design, the design studio and watch manufacturer are presenting the watch that matches the car, a model available exclusively to buyers of the new 911 GT3 and that will be customisable to the max, so it will look as close as possible to the car it has been modelled after.
The new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is based on the classic Chronotimer Series 1 architecture, a watch that pays tribute to the earliest models created by the Butzi Porsche in the early 1970s. Measuring 42mm in diameter, this chronograph is only proposed in titanium, a lightweight material that echoes the high-tech materials used in the Porsche 992 GT3 car. The case, which shows a matte, anti-reflective glass bead-blasted finish, is coated in black titanium carbide for a resolutely sporty look. Of course, knowing the vocation of this model, the bezel features an engraved tachymeter scale. Thanks to its screw-down crown, the watch has a 50m WR.
Porsche Design has revealed its new Chronograph 911 GT3, a watch that will only be offered to those taking delivery of the new 2022 Porsche 911 GTR supercar. Owners will be able to customize their watch to match their new supercar.
As standard, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is available in two editions: a sporty version with an applied dial ring in eye-catching Shark Blue (the colour used by Porsche for the presentation of the new 992 GT3) and a purist version with a colour ring in black. Both editions share the same dial with a matte black background and highly contrasted hands and markers, in white with Super-LumiNova or in yellow for the chronograph indications – the latter being modelled after the yellow accents found inside the new GT3. The layout is classic for the brand, with counters at 12 and 6 o’clock, and a running seconds at 9 o’clock.
For this new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3, the brand once again uses the expertise of its sister-company, and the straps are made from genuine Porsche vehicle leather with “GT3” debossing and stitching in contrasting colours, in Shark Blue or GT Silver, depending on the version. Also, the straps are equipped with the brand’s innovative and practical quick-change system, so the strap can be changed easily and conveniently without the need for additional tools, by just pressing a pusher on the back.
The caseback underscores the strong connections that exist between these two Porsche entities. Under the sapphire caseback is the Porsche Design calibre WERK 01.200, a proprietary movement based on the architecture of the 7750 and highly modified according to PD’s requirements, with specific decoration, chronometer certification and, a typical racing-oriented feature, a flyback function. It beats at 4Hz and boasts 48h of power reserve. The most striking element is the rotor, recreated from the design of the Porsche 992 GT3 wheels, including a miniaturised centre lock featuring a silver GT3 logo. To match the car, the rotor is available in six colours – silver, dark grey, black with red stripe, black with blue stripe, full black or gold.
Finally, there’s more to the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 as it can be fully customised through the Porsche Design Custom Built Timepieces Program (available for German, UK and US markets). Thanks to an online configurator – owners of the 911 GT3 can personalise and adapt additional details on the watch to match their dream sports car. For instance, the case can be ordered in natural or black titanium, multiple bezel configurations are available, and the dial ring can be customised within the GT3 colour spectrum.
Of course, the strap can be ordered with contrasting stitches made from Porsche vehicle thread, and various colours of leather are available. Upon completion of the configuration, the customer receives an individual code that can be used to order the personalised timepiece at his/her local authorised Porsche dealer.
While no price has yet been announced for the car, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is available to design and order now. Depending on the chosen configuration, delivery takes eight to twelve weeks, and prices start from USD 8,050. Come into the beautiful and timeless world of Porsche Design.
Since my childhood I have always loved the Place Vendôme with its imposing facades, beautiful street lightning, and its iconic column in the center of the square. And not to forget, the beautiful boutiqurs housed on on the Parisian square, Boucheron, Breguet, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and of course Chaumet. I still cherish s my automatic golden Jump Hour watch.
Since its creation in 1780 in Paris, Chaumet’s history merges with the history of France, quickly becoming the official jeweler of Empress Josephine. The Maison’s Fine Jewelry know-how has been passed down for nearly 240 years from one generation to the next. Created in the heart of Place Vendôme, the jewellery and watchmaking creations, for women and men, reflect these exceptional know-how and bear witness to Parisian taste.
The oldest jeweler at the Place Vendôme, Paris, never ceases to amaze with his ability to anchor himself in the air of the times. Intimately linked with history, Chaumet’s great hours still nourish the creativity of the Maison and constitute an unbroken thread between past, present and future. Today the French Maison unveils the Infiniment 12 – Rêverie Nocturne watch, a virtuoso tribute to the Maison’s 240th anniversary and the reopening of the12 Vendôme hôtel particulier.
Produced in a limited series, this exceptional creation brings together several highly specialised crafts, such as grand feu enamel by artist Anita Porchet. Each dial is secretly adorned with a tiny stone from 12 Vendôme, enabling the wearer to carry a little bit of Chaumet and the mythical Place Vendôme with them wherever they go.
Discover Chaumet’s 12 – Rêverie Nocturne watch – and much more – in their Place Vendôme boutique or order from their Distance Sales Service to receive your Chaumet piece at home. Come into the beautiful world of Chaumet.
