“MIGHTY REAL” BRINGS THE LEGENDARY 70s SINGER TO LIFE By Walter Greene
Sylvester was an iconic singer/performer who was instrumental in molding the sound and flavor of the disco era in the 1970s. When the curtain came up on “MIGHTY REAL – A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL” on September 14, for a limited engagement at Broadway’s Theater at St Clements, it was the culmination of the work of two…
In a desert of mauve dunes, Miuccia Prada as usual gives us a variety of interpretations for the new collection featuring a mix of a seventies revival together with soft, romantic pieces. We’re feeling the 70s revival more and more in Milan and now at Prada, but of course done in a singular and original way by Miuccia. Contrasting stitching on the coats, raw edges on the jackets and dresses,…

Nearly 600 guests were exclusively treated to an interpretive, one-of-a-kind spectacle bringing to life the theatrical dimension of Whisky-tasting
LONDON, September 18, 2014 – SYMPHONY IN BLUE: A Journey to the Centre of the Glass closed with a bang after running three shows on 16th and 17th September. Nearly 600 guests, including Daniel Bruhl, Donna Air, Luke Treadaway, and Regi Blinker attended the exclusive premier of the world’s first experiential, musical and artistic journey.
This journey took them to the centre of a glass of JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™, allowing them to discover how the brand pioneered the Art of Blending almost 200 years ago, and better appreciate the six distinct flavours – fresh, fruity, malty, woody, spicy and smoky – of the Whisky. Additionally, the talented and charming Jude Law made a cameo appearance during the last show on the 17th September.
“This multi-sensory immersive theatre event was ambitious from concept to completion, with no blue print or comparison JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™, together with Done + Dusted successfully created a new 360 entertainment property that we are all immensely proud of. The SYMPHONY IN BLUE shows were truly brilliant and to see the amazement, awe and wonder on the guests faces was thrilling to see,” said Hamish
Hamilton, Director Done+Dusted.
SYMPHONY IN BLUE: A Journey to the Centre of the Glass culminated in a grand finale featuring an imitable musical instrument, dubbed The Flavour Conductor, created by renowned architectural foodsmiths Bompas and Parr. This epic showpiece instrument engaged guests in a theatrical performance using the latest techniques in projection mapping, combined with a corresponding contemporary sound and light spectacular to
showcase the ultimate Whisky tasting experience of JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL. Towards the end, visual effects, music, dance, theatre, choreography and sensorial wonders concluded the night.
“The Flavour Conductor is a ground-breaking project that helps one pick apart the rare depth and character of JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL. We’ve worked with Prof. Charles Spence to identify the cross-modal aural and visual cues linked to flavour and used these to design the world’s first organ that changes your perception of the taste. Each pipe is tuned to highlight certain flavours within the glass. As the organ plays, the instrument design, composition and projection mapping bring to the fore the six essential flavour characteristics of Johnnie Walker Blue Label in the most visceral way possible,” said Sam Bompas, Founder, Bompas & Parr.
Extending the experience at SYMPHONY IN BLUE: A Journey to the Centre of the Glass, this universe of flavour, craftsmanship and dramatic storytelling will travel to other cosmopolitan cities such as New York, Berlin, Shanghai and Singapore in the upcoming months.

About JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™
JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL is one of the pinnacle offerings from JOHNNIE WALKER.
Only sublime, rare whiskies at the pinnacle of perfection are used in the blending of JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL, with only 1 in 10,000 casks containing Whisky of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste. Each is hand selected by the JOHNNIE WALKER Master Blender himself, part of an unbroken lineage of Master Blenders stretching back over 190 years – it is an ultimate expression of Whisky making today and an remarkable achievement for the modern era.
Presented in individually numbered bottles, it is reminiscent of the 19th century style of whiskies. The Master Blender uses his decades of experience to select some of the rarest casks from the JOHNNIE WALKER reserves for their quality, character and flavour to create the powerful, complex, smooth character of BLUE LABEL.
BLUE LABEL has a mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a JOHNNIE WALKER signature flavour) mixing with raisin sweetness. It is best savoured with the palate cleansed and cooled by iced water. One sip reveals a velvety mouth-feel, then an explosion of flavour. At once you’ll discover hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate.

It is the moment just before sun sets when the light dances upon the Grand Canal. The light is softer now, illuminating the shimmering waterway, reflecting the facade of the Ca’ d’Oro. Built on water and steeped in beauty, the Golden Palace of Venice is our destination. This Spring, intricate detailing is paired with playful transparencies. Insets of chain mesh on tulle ornament the bodices and sleeves & multi-colored jeweled embellishments are inspired by Millefiori glass. Sheer mesh necklines give the illusion of floating dresses. Softly sculpted silhouettes are introduced with unexpected twists. Floor-length gowns are constructed with capes attached. Dresses, cut from bonded spacer mesh, are both structured and airy. The colors of the city inspire the palette. Glowing pastels of frosted jade, pink shadow, and blue stone are built up in translucent layers, while the brilliant ultramarine blues of Venetian lagoons are paired with ivory and navy. Fabrics are custom-designed. Motif-embroidered tulles are inspired by Gothic architectural details of the Ca’ d’Oro. Floral motif lace is hand-tinted by bonding chiffon pieces to the back of lace. With the promise of an evening of enchantment, a Venetian dreamscape awaits.Tadashi Shoji Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show It is the moment just before sun sets when the light dances upon the Grand Canal.

Protagonist without history, invisibles of our streets.
Itinerant individuals who face themselves at the rhythm of time and place, without plans or settled course, toys in the hands of the circumstances, of time, of weather and the people who live their lives all around them without even stopping by.
Coverless is the representation of all of this cogitation, using the clothes as a canvas, proposing languid silhouettes, full of geometry, contrasting with broad pieces that reflects the great work done with the volume. Both work as a fusion of the nomad life, recreating femininity through dresses inspired in nightgowns, which empathizes the fluidity of more simples and vaporous shapes that opposes the harshness and stiffness in the textiles of the more laidback and organic counterpart. This outer silhouette hides the figure and gets his name by the so called “Homeless” style.
This proposal is completed with backpacks and bags inspired in sleeping bags, which, by the means of zippers, are able to be used separately or attached to the clothes and able to be retracted within themselves, demonstrating mindfully through the design the nomad essence of the individual.
Fabrics and materials reminiscent of an urban culture or trend, as the mesh, denim, membrane panel, impermeable and neoprene are used opposing the delicacy of more subtle textiles like gauze. Tells a story, piece by piece, through the collection which reflects the great work of experimentation through hot melted glue bounding, the superposition of stitched layers, clippings, patches and the absence of material that recreates that decadence effect.
The canvas is completed by pastel colours as Cheeks Pink, Prince Blue and Bile Yellow opposing strong saturated tones such as Nuisance Blue, Cloudy Grey and subtle brushstrokes of Traffic Fluor.COVERLESS by David Catalán Protagonist without history, invisibles of our streets.
