Dior fetes year-end holidays with Carousel of Dreams in New York

As the holiday season comes into full swing, Dior has unveiled an unprecedented pop-up installation spanning the entire façade of the legendary Saks Fifth Avenue department store in New York. The Carousel of Dreams creates a spectacularly festive mise-en-scene while celebrating the close bonds forged between Maison Dior and the retailer over the past 70 years.    

The star, the clover and the signs of the Zodiac  evoking Monsieur Dior’s good luck charms  adorn a giant 35-meter-high wheel of fortune overlooking New York’s famous Fifth Avenue. The installation, which will remain until January 5, 2004, reprises a motif designed by Pietro Ruffo for the Dior Cruise 2024 line. 

Launched with a spectacular ceremony including a performance by 60 dancers from the Martha Graham Dance Company, the experience offers a dazzling light show each evening. An enchanting three-part sequence celebrates the beauty of creation, nature and winter.   

The experience continues inside the store, beginning on the ground floor, where a real carousel almost five meters high and crowned by Dior’s lucky star, showcases miniature scenes that evoke key moments in the love affair between Dior and the United States.  Spinning on the imaginary merry-go-round, delicate white canvases  an ode to the unrivalled talents of the Petites Mains and Ateliers  feature silhouettes sketched by Christian Dior that have marked the history of fashion and  haute couture. One by one, the looks come alive in a choreography that seems to repeat itself forever, captivating visitors throughout the day.

BENTLEY UNVEILS THE BELONGING BENTAYGA

As the next step in its mission to become the most diverse luxury car manufacturer in the world, we are proud to unveil the ‘Belonging Bentayga’. This unique hand painted Alpine Green Bentayga (Hybrid) features different skylines and well-known buildings from all across the world such as New York, London, Paris, Rome, Milan, Venice, Tokyo and Hong Kong – each side of the car representing a different continent. The art piece that displays 29 different landmarks is drawn from memory by Stephen Wiltshire MBE, a British architectural artist and autistic savant, who is known for his ability to draw a landscape after seeing it just once.

This is the first time a Bentley has been hand-painted in this way at the factory in Crewe, developed with a unique process from the Bentley Excellence Centre Bespoke Paint team.

The design also includes many drawings of people, nationalities of the world united in one design. The Bentley Bentayga is the third such piece of art unveiled by the company to mark its commitment to diversity.

“We’re delighted that Stephen has agreed to collaborate with us to create the ‘Belonging Bentayga’,” said Wayne Bruce, Chief Communications and D&I Officer. “This remarkable car celebrates Bentley craftsmanship and Stephen’s unique artistic genius. It’s also a key element in our Beyond100 strategy, which includes our industry-leading, five-step diversity and inclusion plan.”

He added: “We’re very proud to be able to say that Bentley’s workforce is made up of people from 52 different nationalities and our diverse team handcrafts and sells our luxury cars in 67 countries from retailers in all the key cities of the world. The message that the unique and striking imagery of the Belonging Bentayga sends is that that no matter where you live, you belong. Our culture of supporting everyone to be able to achieve their highest potential mirrors Stephen’s ethos of do the best you can and never stop.”

Stephen Wiltshire comments: “Buildings have a way of telling a story, where you were born, your first job, the first church you got married, happy memories mean happy people. I have been on many travels throughout my career and what stands out for me the most are the buildings, their architecture and the people. I believe Bentley and the Belonging Bentayga relate in the same way, bringing people together, creating a journey, creating memories. My art has always been about existing and connecting. The Belonging Bentayga was a great challenge for me but I like to be challenged as it tests my ability, and it also proves that if you put your heart and soul into it, you can overcome anything. I am very proud of the finished car which in my humble opinion looks amazing!”

Stephen Wiltshire was born in London to West Indian parents. As a child he was mute and, aged three, was diagnosed with autism. However, his family and teachers soon realised that rather than using words, Stephen communicated through the language of drawing. He started with animals before graduating to buses and finally buildings. His sketches, detailed cityscapes which feature a subtle wit, have earnt him plaudits from around the world.

BENTLEY ZURICH CELEBRATES CENTENARY WITH A MULLINER ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION

(Munich, 27 October 2023) Bentley Motors is celebrating the centenary of its retail partner in Zurich, Schmohl AG, with a quartet of luxury cars. The uniquely-styled 100 Anniversary Collection is based on four Bentley models – the Bentayga S luxury SUV, the Flying Spur Speed four-door sedan, as well as the Continental GT and GTC Speed definitive grand tourers.

Each example is handcrafted in Crewe, England, by Mulliner, Bentley’s in-house personalisation and bespoke department. For the 100 Anniversary Collection range, Mulliner has developed a new Slate Blue Metallic exterior paint and matching Slate Blue Metallic Styling Specification, with personalised ‘100’ welcome lamps. The Flying Spur Speed, GT and GTC Speed examples also benefit from a bootlid spoiler. Personalised ‘100’ welcome lamps greet both driver and passengers as they step in or out of the 100 Anniversary Collection models.

Inside each exquisitely appointed cabin, the 100 Anniversary Collection cars are crafted with Cognac main hide and Beluga secondary hide, with Diamond Quilt contrast stitching. Personalised embroidered ‘100’ headrest emblems adorn the seats, while Piano Black over Copper Stone dual finish veneer complements the dashboard and doors, with Diamond Knurling Specification to brightwork as standard.

Talking about the centenary, Roderick Pike, General Manager of Bentley Zurich, explains:

“A centenary is a key milestone and a special celebration. Schmohl AG was formed in 1923, the same year the Bentley 3 Litre became the brand’s first car to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, setting the fastest lap in the process. The new 100 Anniversary Collection cars reflect a proud partnership with Bentley, offering unique features to honour our special relationship.”

Balazs Rooz, Regional Director of Bentley Motors Europe, added:

“We are delighted to be celebrating this milestone with Bentley Zurich who have been with us since 1950. Switzerland is an important market for Bentley Motors Europe and with this collection we honour and highlight our achievements over the years. At the same time, with our Beyond100 strategy we are also looking forward towards an electrified range by 2024.”

Collection Impériale Création No. 1: an expression of Moët & Chandon’s founding approach

To celebrate the anniversary, Moët & Chandon collaborated with American contemporary artist Daniel Arsham to create a new work and a limited-edition bottle case. The artist visited the Maison’s estate in Epernay alongside cellar master Benoît Gouez, finding inspiration in a stained glass window by Félix Gaudin that has adorned the entrance to the cellars since the late 1890s. His three-meter-long sculptural work will be permanently installed in the Galerie Impériale, not far from the stained glass window where it all began. The artist also imagined 85 limited-edition bottles. Clad entirely in white, the 3D bottles reprise the design of the sculpture with elements referring to the Château de Saran, which Moët & Chandon has owned since 1801.

“We created Collection Impériale Création No. 1, released for our 280th anniversary, as a champagne crafted for eternity. It’s precisely our relationship with time – the time needed to grow, select and mature champagne – that makes Daniel Arsham such an inspired choice for this collaboration. Daniel’s unique take on Moët & Chandon’s heritage beautifully captures the essence of our history and our craft,” says Benoît Gouez.
