NOMOS Glashütte joined the winners circle of this years Good Design Award with their new model Autobahn.

Good Design Award.

The internationally renowned product design award was established in 1950 by a group of designers that included Charles and Ray Eames. The award is presented to products that provide convincing solutions in their form, function, aesthetics, and quality.

The automatic watch with the name Autobahn is one of the latest creations from NOMOS Glashütte. The date display features clear forms and dynamic contours. It is equipped with the most innovative movement from NOMOS to date, the neomatik caliber DUW 6101: 170 years of fine Glashütte watchmaking, meticulous German engineering, a generous dash of high-tech, and countless hours of craftsmanship.

Meet The Designers.

Product designer Werner Aisslinger and partner Tina Bunyaprasit, the creative team behind Studio Aisslinger, designed the bold timepiece for NOMOS Glashütte in collaboration with the watchmaker’s own designers. Their work can be seen at exhibitions worldwide—from MoMA to the V&A and Vitra Design Museum. Inspired by daring racetrack designs, the dial immediately launches into a steep curve, which is echoed in the sub-seconds. The elongated date window shows a trio of dates at a glance: yesterday, today, tomorrow.

“Designing a mechanical timepiece was such a rewarding project. And now it feels incredible to win a Good Design Award for it. The year is already off to a great start.”

october 018

Aman announces the launch of a skincare collection, made bespoke for the brand, which not only embodies and celebrates, but is also inspired by its constellation of hotels and resorts. Introducing a collection of 30 products on the occasion of the brands 30th anniversary, Aman Skincare has been formulated using an exotic roll-call of natural, rare and precious ingredients, many of which have been wild-harvested in various Aman destinations. 

Le-Mile-Magazine-le-mile-selected-Aman-Skincare---Purifying-Pathway_Office_18288.jpg

The new skincare collection - which includes hydrating face creams and serums, nourishing face masks, uplifting body oils, calming milk baths and pulse-point remedies - represents the spirit of Aman in a bottle, offering a soothing journey to a place of beautifully scented repose and respite from the everyday grind.

The sense of peace, the intrinsic connection with its beguiling locations, and the becalming architecture for which Aman is so renowned, define the design aesthetic for the collection’s bottles and jars. Acclaimed architect Kengo Kuma masterfully blended these attributes with Aman’s Eastern roots and channelled them into striking vessels, a beautifully crafted reimagining of Japanese porcelain.For more than 30 years, Aman has created an opportunity for guests to cast aside quotidian distractions and explore the possibilities of a better, more wholly nourished self from a place of serenity. From jungle to desert, countryside to city, Aman welcomes its guests into a comforting and holistic space to connect body and mind. The new Aman Skincare collection inspires a similar journey following the three distinct pathways that harness the natural settings of Aman’s locations: mountains and deserts, Grounding and earthy in their essence; oceans and seas – fresh, Purifying and fluid; nature, forests and lush greenery – Nourishing and renewing in the energy they offer. 


The Collection.    

The word Aman means “peace” in Sanskrit. Aman has elevated the idea of the resort as a sanctuary of peace to an apogee of healing and calm, offering a naturally inspired holistic approach to wellbeing. It has approached creating skincare with the same rigour, values and integrity as it does running its sanctuaries: with much meticulousness, supremely high standards and the greatest respect for the bounties of the natural world. The Aman Skincare collection is informed by ancient wellness traditions and specifically formulated to combine the treasures of the Earth with truly transformative efficacy. The precious ingredients utilised include pearls, homeopathic metals, healing tree oils, amethyst, jade, frankincense and palo santo, in addition to alkalising, oxygen-rich spring water, wild-harvested Amazon butters and rainforest muds.

Sandalwood, a precious, healing oil with a soft, embracing aroma, is the unifying ingredient found throughout the Aman Skincare collection. It has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic system of medicine thanks to its ability to help calm, soothe and centre.

Tangente from NOMOS Glashütte is the most widely-knownwatch from Glashütte; no other model from this town famous for fine watches has been inproduction longer. It is often described as a ‘Bauhaus watch’—and in 2019 the German Bauhaus movement is turning 100 years old. To mark the occasion, Tangente is available in a nine-part special edition, with each version limited to only 100 timepieces.

LE MILE Magazine_Bauhaus_NOMOS_Tangente watch.gif

These watches come in three sizes—33, 35, and 38 millimeters in diameter, for men andwomen alike, and each one comes in every primary color: a sketch paper colored dial, blacknumerals and hands, encircled by a ring of red, yellow, or blue. Paul Klee’s sketches were one of the sources of inspiration for these watches.

As Klee, the ‘magician’ of Bauhaus, once said: “Art makes things visible”.

And that is why the hands follow a color ring, elegantly depicting the basic principle of the watch: time moving in a circle. Not only this special edition, but all watches from this brand based in the famous heritagetown of Glashütte are “timepieces that members of the Bauhaus movement would design and wear today,” NOMOS CEO Uwe Ahrendt is certain. “After all, they went about their work then the same way that we do now when it comes to designing our watches and the R&D that goes into the calibers. By concentrating on the essentials, leaving the super-fluous to one side, and being incredibly demanding when it comes to the details that remain.By standing for the highest quality and a different, very contemporary kind of luxury. As well as a particularly beautiful form of ‘Made in Germany’.”

The models of this special edition Tangente—a century of Bauhaus will be available atselected retailers from the end of August 2018. With a birthday gift from NOMOS Glashütte — as these watches come with a generous ‘100th anniversary discount’.

College:

An institution of higher learning, the place to go to earna bachelor’s degree. And College is also the name of thefootwear brand which has the coolest take on that all-time collegiate classic: the penny loafer. Just recently, iconic loafers brand College (founded in the 50s) and the London-based avantgarde streetwear-imbued brand Aries have teamed up for an exclusive collaboration.

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-College-X-Aries-Arise--Loafers-Limited-Edition-5.jpg
 

Penny loafers are a global phenomenon, owing their origins to American Indian moccasins, and further linked to the comfortable leather shoes worn by Norwegian fisherman in the early twentieth century. These were adapted by Americanshoemakers in the mid 1930’s, and loafers quickly became the fashion footwear standard on college campuses across the nation.

It wasn’t only students who wore penny loafers. Everyone did –from Grace Kelly to James Dean, Paul Newman or J.F.K., preppies and nerds alike, the girl next door, the boy down the road, in the country or the city. Their appeal remained steadyand broad through the 1960’s, and has periodically resurgedever since.

The latest revival was in the 80’s, when youth subcultures theworld over adopted the hitherto establishment preppy look, injecting it with a touch of wit and irony in the process. College was very much on the scene when the Italian Paninaro movement took hold, and fashion obsessed youth gave the Americana look a special Italian twist. 

Today, College brand loafers take the look to a new style pitch. Bold. Sophisticated. Playful. Smart.

And most definitely NOW. For s+s018, take your pick between pitch black, radiant white or bright red leather College loafers, made in Italy and impeccably detailed with zig zag edging at the top of the vamp, along the heel seams, and at the sides of the pennyloafer’s signature feature: the strip of leather across the instep,with its cut-out slit to hold a coin. 

Or make your mark in Antick Cross College loafers, a big graphic X in a contrasting color splashed across the front, be it white on black or red, or red or black on white. The two-tone story continues with Antick Stripe, where white loafers have been boldly road-striped in black or red, while fans of theunderstated will fall for Antick Stripe Black/Black’s almosthidden fashion accent.

As the name suggests, &tradition believes firmly in the talent and vision of past designers. The studio also believes in the celebration of new designers who are forging their own paths to become the avant-garde designers of the future.

This Danish studio has curated a collection of work that spans an incredible timeline of talented designers. One of the masters &tradition boasts is the Moor rug by design studio All the way to Paris. Inspired by the vast, heather-covered hills in the countryside of their native Scandinavia, The Moor rugs capture the ambience of the landscape. “This collection of rugs focuses on texture, shape and depth of colour – not patterns,” explains Founders and Partners Tanja Vibe and Petra Olsson Gendt. “Our intention with the rugs is to gather a room together both emotionally and aesthetically. To create a feeling of closeness and to somehow ‘ground’ the room.”  

Located on the castle grounds of Copenhagen's Kastellet overlooking the waterfront promenade that is home to the Little Mermaid, The Langelinie Pavilion stands with a resilient spirit. The first Pavilion chair was built in 1885. The second was built in 1902 for the Royal Danish Yacht Club but was sadly destroyed during World War II. The current Pavilion was built 1958 by architect couple Eva and Niels Koppel in homage to modernism. Echoing its own ability to endure is the Pavilion chair by Norwegian design firm Andersen & Voll, established black in 2009 by Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll.  

"Anderssen & Voll succeeded in embracing the technology of modernism without being limited to its often rigid functional doctrine. By making both the veneer seat and back curved, they pushed technology to the limit. Available with or without armrests in a choice of wood veneer with versions in textile or leather, the look remains light. It's a chair you wouldn't expect to be this elegant designed to stand the test of time." says Martin Kornbek Hansen, founder of &tradition.  

The FlowerPot Lamps became synonymous with the Flower Power movement from the late 60´. Reecting a break from convention to embrace a more open, modern mentality that promoted peace and harmony. Such was the mindset of their designer, Verner Panton. One of the most forward-thinking talents of his time. The lamp’s simple design consisting of two semi-circle spheres facing each other is not only an icon of that era, the FlowerPot Lamps remain equally as appealing to new generations. Especially in the new series of colours launched by &tradition. 

The Fly Series by Space Copenhagen is a lounge collection made up of two sofas, an armchair, two tables and a pouf. Pushing the idea of lounging to its fullest, Fly is a series that allows the user to sit, lie, rest, and relax. Unlike many of the sofas and easy chairs in Scandinavian design history, Fly does not impose any particular posture onto the sitter. The seat itself is optimised for comfort, with loose cushions for the back that can be arranged according to the user’s own needs. 

The products prove their timelessness and worth, being both desirable and stylish all these years later; true legacies.

Archivio was established in Milan in 2016 by Cecilia Federico and Rosita Giammarino. The brand represents an unique intersection between art + fashion. Its creativity comes to life through the reinterpretation of iconic fashion pieces blended with a timeless and authentic design. Iconographic research and contemporary aesthetics merge together and become the core of every creative process of the brand. A daring design of hybrid silhouettes connects the feminine and masculine in a single universe. “Made in Italy” design and high quality materials are a fundamental value of the brand.

Made by women, for women. Archivio is a womenswear brand that puts the focus on real women’s lives. For those who actively enjoy fashion but do not obsess over it, for women who know themselves and stand for what they want. Archivio woman is free, self-confident, elegant but also sporty and delicate. We design women for what they truly are : powerful, sensual, intelligent, sweet, strong, passionate, determined and elegant.

The collection embodies the perfect outfit for a contemporary woman: from the morning meeting to a dinner out, the sophisticated and timeless structure of the typical Italian tailoring are matched with precious shining fabrics and warm jacquards. The attentive and continuous study of the tailleur, together with the use of intangible silks, reveals us the fine line between the male and female wardrobe, where a woman can borrow her husband’s coat or tie to create her own provocative and sensual style. Double breast structured jackets, austere long coats and classic double pinces trousers, are proposed for a woman's everyday life. Technical and sporty details are mixed in a sensual and elegant collection, where cigarette and wide trousers are matched together with a hoodie silk shirt; and wedge boots are paired with a re-imagined classic longuette, to merge the everyday life wardrobe in a unique modern collection. Sensual dresses are created to enhance the sinuosity and shapes of the woman’s body, who is the real protagonist of our research. Archivio woman is immersed in her personal style, classic and well defined, yet always connected with the modern trends. Fortunately, style is not a slave to fashions.
