The Kinks Dior Collection

Are The Village Green Preservation Society

7 th February 2019 – 7 th April 2019

Proud Central, London

: The Village Green Preservation Society

Proud Galleries is pleased to present The Dior Collection, an exhibition of fashion

photography showcasing the legendary designs of Christian Dior and its enduring

impact on the fashion world. The House of Dior is renowned for revitalising both

haute couture and ready-to-wear fashion in the 20 th Century and its legacy

continues to inspire modern style. Documenting this remarkable brand throughout

its first two decades, the exhibition displays the iconic works of Mark Shaw,

Norman Parkinson, Jerry Schatzberg, Bert Stern and Horst P. Horst. From the

polished editorial shots capturing well-known figures for Life magazine, to behindthe-scenes

studio snapshots, The Dior Collection explores the creation of this

revolutionary luxury brand and its reinvention of the female silhouette.

Since creating his namesake fashion company in 1946, Christian Dior has become

recognised as one of the founding figures of haute couture. After a meeting with

entrepreneur Marcel Boussac, Christian Dior was invited to design for Philippe et

Gaston, a Paris fashion house. Dior, who had been working in fashion for almost

ten years, instead launched a new label under his own name, and with Boussac’s

approval and sponsorship, the House of Dior was born.

In 1947, Christian Dior presented his first show, ‘Corolle’. Fabric rationing from the

Second World War had ended and Dior relished an opportunity to step away from

the silhouettes of wartime styles, calling them "hideous and repellent". His new, fresh designs presented in ‘Corolle’ became synonymous with the

feminine and voluptuous. The show made the cover of Life magazine and was dubbed “The New Look” by Harper’s Bazaar, who described the

designs as “a curving, opulent day silhouette that is the most elegant fashion for decades". Following Christian Dior’s death in 1957 and for the

remainder of the decade, Christian Dior’s protégé Yves Saint Laurent took full creative control of the brand. YSL was nicknamed “The Little Prince

of Fashion” by the press and his first show, a mere three months after Dior’s death, was given a standing ovation. In 1960, Marc Bohan's takeover

was just as revitalising to the brand, as he “refined the lines, lengthened the silhouette and defined a look of dynamic femininity, freed of all

constraints” (House of Dior).

Through the lens of five photographers, The Dior Collection explores the rich heritage and metamorphosis of Christian Dior throughout its early

years, as well as its legacy and impact on the fashion industry. Included in the exhibition are the inimitable works of Norman Parkinson, who often

relied on his mischievous eye in photoshoots rather than the formal studio setting. The playful and energetic shots by Jerry Schatzberg feature an

insider’s perspective into the world of models and designers, recording not only Dior’s elegant and luxurious designs, but also capturing a glimpse

of the process of ‘60s studio fashion photography. Also presented in the exhibition are many notable figures gracing editorial pages in the most

coveted Dior designs, from Mark Shaw’s works for Life magazine featuring Elizabeth Taylor, to Bert Stern’s iconic snaps of Marilyn Monroe.

The Dior Collection brings together a remarkable selection of photography, highlighting the brand’s unique formative years through the works of

leading fashion photographers from the 20 th Century. The exhibition presents a scoping overview of the label by collating images of the classic

early designs and exploring them through a contemporary lens. By revisiting the roots of this exceptional brand, The Dior Collection aims to

showcase the style, innovation and creativity developed by the legendary House of Christian Dior.

The Masterpiece

you’ve never

heard of…

Quietly tucked away on 39

Broadway in Manhattan lies

one of the best-kept secrets in

the arts and antiquities world, in fact

in the luxury and high-value world at

large. The aptly named, Masterpiece

International, has been quietly moving

some of the most precious items

around the globe for the past three decades.

If you’ve never heard of Masterpiece,

it’s by design. Discretion, white

glove door-to-door service and making

the complex convenient, have been

their watchwords to their discerning

clientele - making them the most

sought after high-value shipping and

logistics company you’ve never heard

of. They are one of the only logistics

companies to have tarmac access at

every international airport, meaning

no item leaves their sight, and always

lands gently and precisely where it

needs to - a distinction that should not

be taken lightly in a 40,000 strong field

of competitors worldwide.

Over the years, the company’s exceptional

word of mouth reputation

across the Fine Arts world naturally



led museums, galleries, art fair participants

and private collectors to seek

out the coveted shippers, ultimately

leading to a steady expansion into

other fields requiring equal care and

attention. Soon, antique and exotica

automobiles were finding their way

into Masterpiece shipments, followed

by film, television and entertainment

freight, trade shows, aerospace & hitech,

life sciences, pharma, healthcare,

consumer & retail, and chemical

& energy industry leviathans all came

calling - all requiring the same quality,

dedication and service for their unique

consignments. The need for a super

yacht and marine division materialized

in Miami along with specialized, project

and general cargo demand into the

four corners of the world, giving way

to complex supply chain management

for food and perishable shipments to

the U.S. Military in far-flung complex

lands; a distant cry from the recherché

movement of a Renoir, but no less

complex or delicate.

Today, the company boasts well over

200 employees and 20 offices globally,

with divisions that service nearly every

industry requiring customs brokerage,

freight forwarding and logistics solutions.

While the company may have

expanded, its core principles have remained

unchanged and unchallenged.

Their slogan of, ‘treating every shipment

like a masterpiece’ is not just lip

service or a clever entendre but an absolute

core mandate, as evidenced by

over two decades as the global market

dominator in the high-value arts and

antiquities movement industry. A contention

of pride carried over and engrained

into every shipment whether it

be guavas to the UAE or the Guernica

on tour.

When asked what’s next for the quietly

large firm, the executives give a

wry smile, politely replying, “We can’t

say, it’s not in our nature. But if you’re

in the right places at the right times,

you’ll see us - but we’ll be on to the

next before you know it.” Wise words,

to keep a watchful eye on this noiseless

company creating far reaching ripples

in all the right circles.

and strap buckle – is made of 950 platinum. Adding

an ultimate touch of re nement, the stitching

of the dark blue alligator leather strap is created

from interwoven platinum and silk thread.

On a dial with a sandblasted nish, punctuated by

slim applied hour-markers, a railway-type minute

track and a small seconds display at 6 o’clock

ensure a remarkable visual balance. The “Pt950”

inscription between 4 and 5 o’clock discreetly indicates

that this model belongs to the Collection

Excellence Platine.

Inside the 38 mm diameter case beats a movement

that also honours the Fine Watchmaking

tradition in terms of both precision and reliability.

Displaying its remarkable hand- nished details

through a transparent sapphire crystal caseback,

the in-house manual-winding 4400 AS calibre is

endowed with a 65-hour power reserve.



Villa Kennedy, Frankfurt



Finding the golden alchemy of comfort,

character and creativity is every interior

designer’s greatest challenge: Deputy

Chairman and Director of Design at Rocco

Forte Hotels, Olga Polizzi keeps her finger

on the pulse of design trends, while carefully

considering the history and culture of each

hotel’s location when creating new suites

for Rocco Forte Hotels: “Design is integral

to our hotels. Good hotel design should

be comfortable, practical and memorable.

Each of our hotels has its own identity; I

always start with the location and the style

of the building for inspiration. High quality

craftsmanship is essential, as are the local

artists and builders who share our passion for

attention to the details that really matter.”,

Olga Polizzi explains.

New Suites pay homage to the Kennedy

era of ellegance:

In 2018 Olga Polizzi created four new

Signature Suites for Villa Kennedy in

Frankfurt. Each suite, named and designed

after an iconic figure from the 1960s: Jackie

O, Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich

and Marilyn Monroe. The design portrays

their individual identities throughout the

interior that is reminiscent of the Kennedy

era – timeless and elegant like Jackie, striking

and classic like JFK. Designed with John F.

Kennedy’s 1963 visit to Frankfurt in mind,

Olga Polizzi has used her inimitable taste to

select and bring together unique and local

pieces from renowned German artisans to

give each suite character and charm while

creating a sense of place; an idea which

is intrinsic to the Rocco Forte Hotels

design ethos.

Geneva, 16th January 2019 –

IWC Schaffhausen celebrated

the launch of its new Pilot’s

Watches with an exclusive gala

evening at the Salon International

de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in

Geneva. Around 800 guests had

the chance to admire a true icon of

British aviation – the Spitfire – and

ring in the year of Pilot’s Watches

together with IWC. Among them

were numerous prominent brand

ambassadors of the Swiss luxury

watch manufacturer such as Bradley

Cooper, Rosamund Pike, Dev

Patel, Adriana Lima, James Marsden,

Karolina Kurkova and Sonam



This week at the Salon International

de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva,

IWC Schaffhausen unveiled

its new Spitfire, TOP GUN and “Le

Petit Prince” models. This year, the

Swiss luxury watch manufacturer

invited the international IWC family

and guests to come together at

an exclusive gala evening to live the

dream of flying. The first of many

highlights of the evening came

when a real Spitfire landed spectacularly

on site. Out strode British

pilot Matt Jones, who intends to

take off on a round-the-world trip

in the Silver Spitfire next summer,

starting in Goodwood, England.

IWC is supporting the “Silver Spitfire

The Longest Flight” project

as its main sponsor. Musical high-

lights were provided by successful

Icelandic quartet Kaleo, who performed

some of their best-known

hits such as “Way down we go”, as

well as IWC‘s very own house band

who came together especially for

the evening.



Numerous well-known IWC brand

ambassadors were spotted on the

red carpet, including Hollywood

stars Bradley Cooper, Rosamund

Pike, Dev Patel, James Marsden and

Sonam Kapoor, supermodels Adriana

Lima and Karolina Kurkova and

sports personalities such as Valtteri

Bottas, David Coulthard and Jochen

Mass, and influencers like Negin

Mirsalehi and Oliver Cheshire.



Several IWC brand ambassadors

visited the IWC booth in the afternoon,

where they were shown

the new Spitfire, TOP GUN and “Le

Petit Prince” models exclusively by

IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr.

This year is the first time that IWC‘s

trade fair booth has been designed

as an entirely open space. In the

centre is the original Silver Spitfire,

which visitors are able to admire at

close range. The booth is set up like

the wing of an aeroplane, combining

elements of luxury and engineering

with the nostalgic dream of

flying. In this way IWC accentuates

the extraordinary stylistic diversity

of its Pilot‘s Watches.

also be the official outfitter to the entire Porsche motorsports team worldwide.

The shared passion for racing, and a fascination with perfect design and innovation,

inspired the creative minds at HUGO BOSS to produce the “Porsche x BOSS” capsule

collection. Its standout features include premium leather and wool materials

presented in the Porsche and HUGO BOSS colors of silver, black and red. Starting

in March 2019, a range of menswear styles from the debut capsule collection will be

available online and at BOSS stores.

“HUGO BOSS and Porsche are both synonymous with outstanding innovation and

consummate quality,” commented Mark Langer, CEO of HUGO BOSS AG. “We have

been working successfully with motorsports over recent years and decades. That is

why, with the future-oriented Formula E, I am especially pleased that we are taking

our cooperation to a new level.”

“Formula E is an exceptionally attractive racing series,” said Oliver Blume, CEO of

Porsche AG. “It offers us the perfect environment to strategically evolve our vehicles

in terms of efficiency and sustainability. We’re looking forward to being on

board in the 2019/2020 season. In this context, the renowned fashion group HUGO

BOSS represents the perfect partner to outfit our team.”

The Luxury Network

New Zealand

Welcomes Orsini

Fine Jewellery

We are very excited to welcome new member

Orsini Fine Jewellery to The Luxury Network

New Zealand. At Orsini, they believe in

creating distinctive and personalised pieces that stand

the test of time and are able to be passed down to be

enjoyed by generations to come.

‘Orsini’ is an Italian name, steeped in tradition and history,

embodying family, quality, style and lasting beauty,

all features that are seamlessly incorporated in the

design of each piece of jewellery.

“Fine jewellery is not merely about

accessorising. It’s about quality

pieces that reflect your unique

sense of style that will be cherished

from generation to generation.”

– Sarah Hutchings

The name is also appropriate as Orsini showcases a

collection of fine jewellery that director Sarah Hutchings

lovingly hand sources from Italy.

Sarah opened the doors to Orsini Fine Jewellery in 2008,

sharing her passion for handcrafted Italian jewellery

with the world. Her affection for fine Italian Jewellery

came about when living in Europe where her father-inlaw,

former jeweller Peter Hutchings, introduced her

to the Vicenza Jewellery Fair in Northern Italy. Here,

Sarah was inspired by the exquisite designs and intricate

craftsmanship of European jewellers and knew

she wanted to share her love of quality, hand-crafted

European designed jewellery with New Zealand.

With her passion activated by the Italian flair for fine,

hand-crafted jewellery, Sarah launched Orsini, alongside

a custom jewellery workshop where engagement

rings are beautifully designed and created. She became

a highly skilled and passionate designer with certification

in diamond grading and GIA training in Gemmology,

and nurtured a specialty for creating stunning,

custom designed engagement rings that represent the

unique personality and distinctive style of her clients.

Ten years on, Orsini is home to a stunning and ever-changing

collection of fine Italian pieces. Along with

Sarah’s expertise, Orsini draws on the expertise of master

jewellers here in New Zealand to create incredible

custom engagement rings and other custom pieces.
