luxury jewelry: Ayala Bar presents the Dune collection

 
Valentine’s Day is coming, but you do not need the special occasion of Valentine’s Day to enjoy a gem: today we speak of the latest proposals for Ayala Bar that presents the new Dune collection. It is luxurious jewels that tell an ethnic and chic approach together.
The Israeli-born designer Ayala Bar signing this wonderful collection that consists of necklaces, bracelets, necklaces and earrings are able to immediately give a mysterious air of the Arabian Nights to the woman wearing them.

The designer has chosen to focus on the rose as a recurring color, the same tone that has elected Pantone color of the year in the shade Rose Quartz. Everything takes so immediately looked more feminine, almost innocent, with an effective contrast to the extremely seductive allure of shapes and rich decorations.

It is, admittedly, very flashy jewelry that require a great character to be worn without letting overwhelm. At the same time, however, they manage to give an exotic touch and extremely attractive outfit even more minimalist.

Each piece is richly worked in a woven structure, overlays and bezels that use the reflections of the pearl, the facets of the crystals, gold accents, trimmings and beads that run between spirals and sinuous curves.

The most interesting pieces are undoubtedly the earrings, pendants all, often very long and flashy. Constitute the richest section and articulated in the collection. We also love the beautiful necklace that reflects the inspiration of the statement necklace and established some seasons ago but bringing it here to levels of great technical mastery.

Cavalli and Versace in the land of the ayatollahs

Opened in Tehran the first boutique of Italian high fashion in Iran after-embargo

Seductive and glamorous evening gowns, leather miniskirts perfect in every detail, over the knee boots with stiletto heels. The ladies in the chador ‘Tehran-good’ will rub their eyes and wonder if it’s all true. Yes, it’s all true. In Iran post-embargo was opened the first luxury boutiques and single-brand of Made in Italy and to sign it is the Florentine designer Roberto Cavalli. (Elisa Pinna by Ansa – Tehran)

In short, in a month, it will also open a Versace store and insignia are ready, alongside those of horses, at 1 Alef North Street, Zaferaniyeh, one of the most elegant and rich of the Iranian capital. The Cavalli shop, a two-story structure built to the smallest detail – from the colors lights marble – as indicated by the Italian brand, is crowded. The prices do not scare, although a jacket can cost several thousand Euros, or worse, in the Iranian currency, tens and tens of millions of riyals.

Iran is experiencing a slice of the population that does not have money problems and is eager to taste the ‘joie de vivre’, if only within their own homes. Thus, an Iranian entrepreneur, Medhi Firouzan, president of KelideTalaei, along with Abbas Firouzan, and a third partner, Moezeddini, has thought to ask the franchise for the Republic of the ayatollahs of fashion brands and Italian luxury, one of the most popular products and appreciated in the world. The operation started two years ago, when Iran was still under slap by the international community.
Italians, however, designers have believed in the potential of a young market, cultured, hungry for culture and, in some groups, wealthy.

Thus, the first flag planted by Italy at the end of economic sanctions in Iran was in one of its areas of excellence. The members of the Iranian project is ambitious. “We want to transform Alef Street in via Montenapoleone in Tehran,” said Mehdi Firouzan ANSA, referring to the famous Milanese luxury street. “We asked Ferragamo, Armani, to other Italian and even European designers to open their single-brand stores in Iran. What we want more of our people is the quality of life and we want to offer it. Italy can help us” , he stressed. “The high fashion can become a bridge to bring Europe to Iran and to bring a future Iran to Europe,” added Abbas Firouzan.

So far in the Islamic Republic luxury garments made in Italy you could be found occasionally in some stores, but with a reduced choice to minimum and with a high risk of purchasing counterfeit products. The opening of the Cavalli store marks the start of a new season. The desire to change step is confirmed by Hanayeh, a young man of thirty degree in chemical engineering who, fascinated by the world of fashion, she decided to work in the new Cavalli boutique. “Iran is not the dark country, closed, violent which is described in foreign newspapers. Far from it,” he says. “A week ago, when we were still closed, people flocked to the windows, curious and proud that Tehran had finally such a store.”

Apple Watch, WatchOS update: 2 will be the revolution of smartwatch?

Native apps and more independence from smartphones could change everything, first of all the applications themselves

Looking at the long term, the announcement of Apple’s biggest event of the fall this year may be less than advertised: development WatchOS 2. Tomorrow will be released and the new release will be a day that could change the relationship we have had up for now with smartwatch. The new operating system from Cupertino, designed specifically for the smart watch, is designed to make the app faster and smoother, since it will run natively on Apple Watch, plus introduces new dials, the ability for third-party app to display information in the form of notifications and an innovative way to see the future events, past and more with Time Travel.

But not only, the OS also includes new communication features such as the ability to respond quickly in Mail with dictation, Smart Replies or emoji, while Digital Touch free creativity, allowing you to use more colors for their own designs.

These components may be the first step to the final explosion of a market that so far only showed great potential. Native apps will allow developers to make the most of the components of the smartwatch, with results currently unthinkable. For example, a dating app could guide us to the soul mate simply following the vibration on the wrist, or an application designed to make you lose weight might block you access to Facebook and Candy Crush, until you have done the right move daily.

Until now smartphone and smartwatch are not comparable as regards the debut: as reported on the US site Techcrunch, in the first quarter sales of mobile phones sold 334 million pieces, watches only 11. But the state of the art in recent years it has changed and the room for maneuver for wearable devices was much narrower than that of the new phones. Yet change and greater independence from the iPhone and the company could revolutionize everything, creating a new need and opening space for new apps, all new and completely rethought. Who knows if it will be the beginning of the decline of smartphones, what is certain is that the smartwatch are intended to carve out an increasingly large and if the foresight of the developers (and Apple) will be repaid, tomorrow will all feel the need to buy us a new watch.

The first ascent of Mont Blanc, an August 8

229 years ago: The expedition was organized by a famous scientist, but to reach the summit for the first time were a doctor and a crystal-digger.
The first ascent of Mont Blanc took place 229 years ago, on Aug. 8, 1786: the first to arrive at the top were the crystal hunter Jacques Balmat and the doctor Michel Gabriel Paccard, to 18.23, and remained there for just under forty minutes, during which it carried the scientific measurements. With its 4810 meters, the Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps and Europe except the Caucasus, The expedition was organized by the famous scientist Horace-Benedict de Saussure, who according to some reconstructions had even promised a reward to anyone who would go up first of Mont Blanc. De Saussure was mainly specialized in the study of glaciers, and for this many years studying the Mont Blanc massif, planning to make the measurements for yourself.

Paccard had graduated in Turin and had already attempted the climb in 1783. Balmat instead was an expert of the mountains around Chamonix, and it was with great athleticism. They decided to organize an expedition together for convenience, although did not go over well: the idea of ​​Paccard was not to go the traditional route with which it had been attempted the ascent earlier that the Grands Mullets, but to divert first to reach the Dôme du Goûter, through the Grand Plateau, under the north face of Mont Blanc. They risked to go back, because the daughter was ill and the Balmat crystal hunter wanted to go back (he died later that day). After reaching the summit and made the measurements, Balmat and Paccard began the descent: it got dark quickly, but the two had chosen a full moon night, and were able to camp out.
The date of the first ascent of Mont Blanc coincides with the birth of mountaineering that day began the so-called “phase of conquest” of mountaineering, where one by one were climbing all the mountains of the Alps over four thousand meters high. When in 1865 Edward Whymper reached the last major peak, the Matterhorn, the nature of mountaineering was changed: if in the beginning the reasons for the climb were mostly scientific, soon he asserted the idea of ​​mountaineering as a sporting gesture. Today in the center of Chamonix a statue of Balmat showing the Mont Blanc de Saussure remembers the first ascent.
