What Do The Top Watchmakers Think of Apple Watch?

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents What Do The Top Watchmakers Think of Apple Watch?


The Apple Watch looks “too feminine” and its design will not stand the test of time, luxury giant LVMH’s watch guru has told German media.

Jean-Claude Biver, who heads LVMH’s luxury-watch division, said Apple had made some fundamental mistakes designing the Apple Watch.

“This watch has no sex appeal. It’s too feminine and looks too much like the smartwatches already on the market,” Biver said in an interview with daily Die Welt.

“To be totally honest, it looks like it was designed by a student in their first trimester,” added Biver who heads up TAG HEUER, ZENITH and HUBLOT


Biver predicted the much-anticipated device, with its square face and curved edges, would soon be outdated.

“Luxury always has something timeless, it’s rare and conveys prestige,” he was quoted as saying, adding that the same could not be said for Apple Watch, which is expected to be bought by millions of customers and will likely be beyond repair in a few years’ time.

Biver is not the first watch chief to be dismissive of Apple’s efforts. Swatch CEO Nick Hayek earlier told Swiss media that the world’s biggest watch group was “not nervous” about Apple’s foray into the market.

Apple Watch, which comes in several colours and links to the iPhone, will start at $349 when it is released early next year.

Baseball star Randy Johnson is listing his 25,000-square-foot home in Arizona’s Paradise Valley for $25 million.


The three-story Mediterranean-style home is on 5-acres and has seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The room that currently serves as Mr. Johnson’s office has wood-paneled walls, an adjoining poker room and a window that overlooks a three-car display garage for collectible cars.

Today’s urban beach escape: Miami Beach

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Today’s urban beach escape: Miami Beach.

 
If you’re looking for a destination that can reconcile world class entertainment with beach life, check out the coastal resort city of Miami Beach, perhaps the picture postcard of American beach living.

The city likes to call itself ‘America’s Riviera,’ a cosmopolitan destination that glitters with some of the world’s hottest clubs, celebrities and beach bodies.

Palm trees fringe large boulevards, which are dotted with cafes, fancy restaurants, world-class shopping and luxurious hotels.


In addition to 11 km of white sand beaches, MIAMI Beach is also home to three golf courses, 20 parks, and is a hub for arts and culture.

Think Art Basel, the premiere international and contemporary art show, and the Art Deco Historic District in South Beach.


For people watching and partying, head to South Beach. If you want to take a stroll or go for a sun-soaked run, hit the Miami Beach Central boardwalk.

According to the local tourism board, 4 pm is the ideal time to hit Lummus Park beach, as crowds will have thinned and the sun will be more forgiving.


Recently renovated, South Pointe Park at the southern tip of the city offers spectacular views of behemoth cruise ships sailing out to sea and includes a children’s playground, restaurants and a pier for fishing.

Ferragamo launches new film series for Fiamma bag

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Ferragamo launches new film series for Fiamma bag.

Luxury Italian brand Salvatore Ferragamo has released the teaser for a new video series designed to celebrate their Fiamma bags.



Set to premiere on May 7, the latest film from Salvatore Ferragamo was inspired by the different female generations within the Ferragamo family.

To celebrate its Fiamma bags, the brand has created a special digital experience highlighting the women via a film and a series of interviews, which sees them discuss their values, style, traditions and family heritage.

Ferragamo has a keen eye for an interesting film project: last year the brand unveiled a series of ‘Walking Stories’ directed by Luca Guadagnino which starred Kaya Scodelario, Tom Ellis, and Lauren Hutton among others.

Bugatti Veyron Black Bess, latest in Legends series

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Bugatti Veyron Black Bess, latest in Legends series.


As with each model in the company’s six-part Legends Series, the fifth and penultimate car — called Black Bess — will be limited to three examples and is based on a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

However, in honor of the Type 18 — the historic Bugatti that is serving as inspiration for this very special edition — the car will feature an exterior of painted carbon fiber with gold accents and a special set of alloy wheels.


Inside the cabin is finished in different contrasting leathers and racing motifs are embossed on the door panels.

One of the most famous Type 18 owners was French aviator Roland Garros who bought an example in 1912 hoping it would be as fast as his plane.


As with all Bugattis in the Legends Series, the car will boast an 8-liter W16 engine, 1184bhp and a top speed of 254mph, making it the fastest production convertible in the world. It will also come with a €2.2 million price tag.

The car will go on public display for the first time at the Beijing motor show, which opens its doors to the press on April 20.

Video: 23 Michelin stars in 60 seconds

The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Video: 23 Michelin stars in 60 seconds.


If you’ve never had the chance to dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant, a new 60-second video takes viewers on a culinary journey across a constellation of restaurants that collectively boasts 23 stars.

It’s food porn at its best, providing rapid-fire shots of kitchens at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, The Fat Duck, Hibiscus, Mugaritz, and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.

Set to the soundtrack of “Food, Glorious Food,” from the musical “Oliver!,” the video goes behind the scenes into the making of edible art worthy of a Michelin star.

Seafood stocks simmer, eggplants are blistered over an open fire, and artichoke hearts sizzle in a pan of fat in a dizzying montage of food porn.

The video was produced by Orama.tv for The Staff Canteen, a YouTube channel created for professional chefs and food lovers.
