Lynda Genglis brings wearable art to Loewe

Lynda Benglis, a big name in post-war American sculpture, has for six decades redefined art through endless innovation with form and materiality. Using physical engagement with diverse materials—sparkles, plaster, latex, you name it—she is always set to challenge the definition of sculpture, creating art in tandem with the shifting world around it. Bringing her creativity to jewellery is Loewe, with the latest collection of 20 designs, each created as a piece of wearable sculpture. Through motifs and techniques synonymous with her work, original maquettes have been created using foil, mesh, clay and wire, and turned into rings, cuffs, brooches, earrings and pendants.

Jannik Sinner stars in Gucci’s latest campaign

Global brand ambassador Jannik Sinner is quite a star in Gucci’s latest campaign, a documentary-style series captured on court by photographer Riccardo Raspa. The 22-year-old Italian tennis player was seen carrying Gucci custom duffle bags—a collaboration between the world of sports and luxury fashion that not only redefines the intersection of tennis and the House’s legacy, but celebrates excellence all around.

Age less with the new Dior Prestige Le Concentré Yeux

Roses are red, violets are blue, when skin continues to age, Dior’s here to save you. Okay, bad poetry aside, Dior really is here to save your skin. The Dior Prestige Le Concentré Yeux, rich in Rosapeptide (a powerful complex extracted from the Rose de Granville) and dynamic yeast, is a magical formula that targets four cardinal points of the eyes for visible rejuvenation, smoothing out stressed skin and lifting the lids, brow lines and even the cheeks. Expect to see promising results after a month.

Namiki’s new fountain pen, coming to you soon

Impeccable penmanship is a lost art, but it doesn’t have to anymore. Not with the Bumblebee Yukari Fountain Pen, a work of art by luxury Japanese pen maker Namiki, limited to only 300 pieces worldwide. Inspired by the harmony of flora and fauna, it is shown through motifs of Blue Salvia flowers (a symbol of respect, wisdom and familial love) and bumblebees (a symbol of intelligence and individual strength), brought to life by artisanal techniques. Each pen comes encased in a box adorned with Hakone marquetry and can be yours for S$2,400 (before taxes) starting 15 June 2024. More here.

Breguet continues partnership with Frieze Art Fair

In a continuing partnership with the Frieze Art Fair, Breguet launched a new collaboration with Jenn Ellis, the founder of Apsara and a curator who is passionate about the “considered meeting of art, space and context.” She’s led global projects, such as the UNESCO heritage vineyards in Burgundy and a grade II-listed church in Marylebone.

The 2024-2025 partnership started off in New York, where Singaporean artist Dawn Ng was featured for work that resonates with the geographical considerations and topographical readings of deep time. The Frieze Art Fair will travel to Seoul next, where they will station from 4 to 7 September 2024.
