Berlin-based womenswear brand Marina Hoermanseder combines finest artisanal sophistication with eccentric yet elegant design.

French-Austrian designer Marina Hoermanseder represents with her collections a bold and feminine individualism. Her design unites progressive cuts with fetish elements, experimenting with sharp contrasts and playing with the beauty of the unconventional.

Precisely fitted leather corsets and intricate closures are combined with delicately flowing fabrics, revealing the individual signature of the designer. With slender silhouettes and subtle details such as leather straps, buckles, gatherings and rivets, Marina Hoermanseder creates an interplay between the avantgarde and ready-to-wear with her own particular extravagant aesthetic.

For her celebrated designs made of vegetable-tanned, hand-lacquered leather, Marina Hoermanseder draws her inspiration from sources such as 18th century orthopedic corsets, breaking with convention through her aestheticization, in turn evoking a distinct allure.

We work to make the lives of people more beautiful by creating unique sensorial experiences […]” says Le Labo (French: "the laboratory").

Born in the French Riviera [in Grasse], the capital of perfumery, Le Labo was raised in NYC, the city where Fabrice Penot and Edouard Roschi opened their first lab on Elizabeth Street in New York's Nolita neighborhood, back in 2006. During the past few year the brand increasingly developed and is now owned by Esteé Lauder.

Today, each and every fragrance is freshly hand-blended in one of their standalone boutiques around the world. Once purchased, fragrances are compounded and each label is personalized with the client's name printed on the label of the boxes and the perfume bottles.

Its manifesto states that "the future of luxury [hence of perfumery] lies in craftsmanship" and includes a line from Hafiz and mentions of Wabi-Sabi and Henry David Thoreau.

Le Labo produces 17 fragrances and 13 City Exclusive scents which are available only at specific locations. They also retail a diverse of ambient room scents, body, hair and face products. The formulations do not include paraben, preservatives or coloration, and are not tested on animals. All products are vegan.

In September 2019, Le Labo will release two new City Exclusive scents: the "deeply aromatic tobacco absolute” TABAC 28 (Miami) and the "schizophrenic perfume” BIGARADE 18 (Hong Kong).

The revival of an all-American design classic with added Japanese precision and traditional craftsmanship. The result: a strong look, clean design with a lot of love for detail. Created on the Honshū Island in Japan, VIU’s titanium collection adds bold character to any personality. To preserve its natural strength, VIU makes each frame with 100% pure titanium.

The New York-based fragrance brand strangelove nyc prides itself on their unique blend of natural ingredients with the ability to provoke the senses, awaken emotions, and linger there with profound effect.


FOUNDED IN
2013 BY
ELIZABETH GAYNES,

strangelove nyc is passionate about creating highly concentrated, complex fragrances using rare ingredients chosen for their historical properties and sustainably sourced from around the world.

The collection is comprised of four distinct scents—deadofnight, meltmyheart, silencethesea, and lostinflowers—in both an eau de parfum and pure perfume oil format. Each bottle is crafted from the finest French glass and topped with a custom 24 karat gold-plated cap inspired by the ‘golden ratio.’

The brand’s first and most seductive scent, deadofnight, is made from the precious aromatic wood resin, oud. To balance out its aphrodisiac effects are Damask Rose, natural violet leaves, vanilla balsam, sandalwood, amber, and musk. This one is made for the risk takers and the unabashedly indulgent.

 
 

meltmyheart is an opulent oriental that owes its warmth to pure orris butter. Oud, sandalwood, ylang-ylang, a hint of absinthe, and French sage boost spirits while purified ginger, mandarin, and dark chocolate complete the adoring scent. This one is made for the hopeful romantics and those bonded for eternity.

silencethesea uses pure ambergris to conjure marine life mysteries and gets its leathery edge from black oud and blue chamomile as well as gentle notes of natural narcissus, tuberose absolute, and mimosa place. Freshened with white truffle and purified angelica, this one is for those who love to make waves.

Back in the 90s, digital designers and brothers Markus + Daniel Freitag were looking for a functional, water-resistent and robust backpack to hold their graphic works. By seeing the heavy multicolored trucks that rumbled infront of their apartment, they got inspired and created a bag from used truck tarpaulins, discarded bicycle inner tubes, and car seat belts.

The Freitag
backpacks were
born, taking their
shape in the living
room of their
apartment in Zurich.

Each one recycled their unique Freitag bag. The idea grew and became a great success. Nowadays, the products of Freitag are available in twelve F-Stores as well as at hundreds of resellers around the globe. Also, customers can order one of the over 5000 unique products from the online store presenting an extensive selection of colors, models, and texture. Markus + Daniel still conceive and oversee each new model through the series production by being the Creative Directors of Freitag.

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.
