BACK IN BLACK ALFRESCO

BACK IN BLACK ALFRESCO ART JUST A HINT OF MAGMA PRETTY IN PUEBLA THE YSL LEGACY NEW YORK STATE OF MIND SPRING 2018 From the Editor CHRISTIAN SCHWALBACH Reshaping the view: artist Claudia Comte‘s 128 squares and their demonstration on display at Domaine du Muy (see page 55) From time to time, it is essential that we review, reassess and renew our commitment to you, regular readers of CENTURION. My team and I do this on occasion in the form of reappraisals of our coverage areas, what we decide to focus on and how we present it all to you. Cognisant of the pressures on your time, we have always aimed to make the magazine as easily digestible as possible. Today, we’ve taken yet another small step to frame our content in a way that allows you to interact with it more fluently. The small makeover in our fonts and our general design language – which is now both cleaner and fresher – should enhance your enjoyment of a product whose stewardship we take very seriously. In the pages that follow, you’ll notice more concise layouts, which are designed not only to reflect a more modern ethos but also to provide you with a beautiful and transportive visual escape from the backlit devices that are omnipresent throughout our days. We journey to Reykjavik, New York, Trancoso, Puebla and beyond, interspersed with our regular roster of inspiring perspectives on timepieces, fashion, food and culture. We hope you enjoy them all – and their new format. THE PANEL BLACK This issue’s cover features an ebony wall panel from British-born, Thai-based designer Alexander Lamont’s Étoile collection, in which straw patterns are applied by hand, evoking a kaleidescopic effect.
