Avant-garde streetwear brand Les Benjamins has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2023 collection, and cites Dubai as one of its sources of inspiration.

Called “The Horse of the East”, the collection is themed around horse racing, inspired by the emirate’s love of the sport. “When I lived in Dubai, I was in Business Bay, and my house was very close to Meydan, where all the big horse races take place,” said Bunyamin Aydin, creative director at Les Benjamins.

“My partner would always talk to me about her childhood and how she got inspired by dressing up for the horse races she attended and creating custom pieces for. It’s like a fashion show, everyone people dress up.

This love of dressing and the technical aspect of equestrian clothing has been blended into a range of clothing that is relaxed and comfortable, but crossed by complex techniques and ancient references.

Taking inspiration from the graphic pattern of silk tops worn by jockeys, Aydin created a tubular, rounded pattern, now used on a men’s bomber jacket and shorts, and a women’s midi skirt with a thigh split.

Elsewhere, the curved seams of jodhpurs appear as lines tracing long-sleeved tops and second-skin leggings, while riding chaps are mocked over trousers in a contrasting horse-patterned material.

The brand also reworks the intricate patterns of rugs and kilims in each of its collections. This is represented as panels on jackets and the sides of women’s flared pants. A standout look is a blue and orange fabric made into a men’s shirt, jacket and shorts, adorned with saddle-like flaps, held in place by functional studs.

Combining elements of the West and the East, Aydin uses the strict discipline of Western dressage in a fabulous crochet square, transformed into a breathtaking men’s shirt and a backless dress for women. Meanwhile, beloved horses are referenced as metal plates, horseshoes, and tassels that are added to the confection.

“That’s why I called the collection ‘The Horse of the East’,” Aydin said. “It’s a mysterious approach to who and what the horse is, and what it is about: horse racing and ceremony.”

SEVILLE, Spain For Maria Grazia Chiuri, DiorThe annual cruise show is a unique opportunity to bring together specialist workshops from its chosen destination to work on objects that showcase unique and potentially endangered craftsmanship.

In Seville, where the artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear will present her resort collection on Thursday evening, she was spoiled for choice, ranging from Andalusian leather craftsmen who are experts in riding equipment, to metalworking and embroidery workshops usually specialized in religious ceremonial objects. .

It all makes for a shared moment that she described as unlike any other show on the fashion calendar.

“Fashion is a community enterprise. It’s like we’re celebrating all the work we’ve done together. The atmosphere on the cruise is very strong, because there are all the craftsmen who collaborate with us on the show,” she said during a preview on Wednesday.

“I feel so strongly the energy of all the artisans, of all the artists who have worked with me,” she added. “The level of involvement is completely different, especially with people who don’t have as many opportunities to show off their skills, talent and creativity.

Among those taking their first steps into high fashion is Orfebreria Ramos, a traditional metalwork shop that sells jewelry on its website but mainly specializes in the production of items such as crowns for statues. nuns and the restoration of church altars.

She has developed a line of jewelry for Dior on the theme of the rose, in homage to the founder Christian Dior, a great lover of the flower. “It’s the first time they’ve worked for a house. The owner was super happy because it can also give him a new vision of his work,” said Chiuri.

Likewise, the Jesús Rosado workshop, which only works with gold and silver threads, usually embroiders the fabrics used to dress the Madonnas during religious processions or worn for liturgical rites.

For Dior’s 2023 resort collection, he embellished the brand’s signature Bar jacket and Lady Dior handbag with three-dimensional embroidery inspired by bas-relief sculptures. Chiuri was so impressed that she wants to produce more plays.

“I want to come back because I would also like to continue the collaboration for haute couture pieces, because they have a really incredible manuality and also an artistic taste,” she enthused.

Then there are the objects traditionally associated with the women of Seville, a city famous for its flamenco dancing and Mudejar-style architecture, such as the Alcázar, where the French fashion house is planning to host a welcome dinner on Wednesday.

The historical Abanicos Carbonell workshop, based in Valencia, has created lace fans, while the María José Espinar workshop, where three generations of women work in the production of Manila shawls, has developed a series of traditionally fringed shawls. embroidered with signature Dior details.

From the equestrian wardrobe – and mood board images of Jackie Kennedy and the Duchess of Alba in traditional Spanish riding attire – the designer pulled two classic hat shapes produced by the Fernández y Roche workshop . One is felt and the other straw, like the special-edition wide-brimmed hat guests found in their rooms when they arrived in Seville.

Javier Menacho Guisado has applied his leather embroidery methods to the Dior Saddle bag, while Daniel López-Obrero Carmona has collaborated with Italian artist Pietro Ruffo, who regularly works with Chiuri on his collections, on unique pieces that combine sculpture and paint. techniques in the tradition of the city of Cordoba.

The Spanish craftsman’s work was used to decorate a series of bags, and he translated Ruffo’s designs for the show onto painted leather panels covering a chest intended to house Andalusian saddles and riding gear.

“It’s like a piece of leather couture, and it’s super exciting because we can create something really new and unique, and also because I think it can give us the opportunity, but also them , to improve our knowledge and use it in a different way,” said Chiuri.

While the trunk won’t be on display at the show, she plans to display several in store windows for the launch of the collection, which typically goes on sale during the holiday season.

Chiuri hopes this kind of visibility will act as a beacon for younger generations who might lack motivation to learn traditional skills.

“In Italy we have lost some of these traditions. Here there are a lot of them and they haven’t lost them, so if with this show they understand the potential of this kind of knowledge, it will probably make it more attractive for future generations, ”she said.

The show, which coincides with a record-breaking heat wave in southern Spain, is due to take place at 9 p.m. local time on Thursday in the sprawling Plaza de España. Built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, it mixes elements of the neo-baroque, neo-Renaissance, and neo-Moorish styles of Spanish architecture.

Shaped like a semicircle, the square is surrounded by buildings that are now mainly used by government institutions and is lined with tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain. The buildings are accessed by four bridges over the moat, which represent the ancient kingdoms of Spain, with a large fountain located in the middle.

Overall, Dior is accelerating its physical showing schedule. The cruise show will be followed by the men’s ready-to-wear summer collection in Paris on June 24, and the haute couture fall collection on July 4.

WHISPERS OLD MONEY: “Proficiency in another language is much more likely (thanks to better general education).”

“I’m from the UK so maybe we have slightly different customs, but we have a lot of very old and wealthy families here with hereditary titles and historic family homes. In the UK they’re usually fluent in English. French or German. Knowledge of Latin and Greek used to be more common; older members of your family will be more familiar with these subjects, but it is still well taught in public schools. Children will not study dippy subjects at university, but will be encouraged towards things like law, medicine and classics. If they like music, they will go to a conservatory. Even if they never intend to practice these things are mainly for the approval of their parents, and so that they are not considered academically mediocre.

“Many have to work hard to impress their parents and maintain their approval; it’s not because the parents are tough, but usually because they’re aware of their wealth and privilege and try to make sure the kids don’t grow too big. Enforcing strong family rules, good manners and humility and promoting academic success are a good way to ensure that children don’t just have easy access to inherited wealth and grow , hopefully polite and grateful for what they have. It doesn’t always work, however.

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — With sad but faithful hearts, friends and loved ones bid farewell to Anni Borghesani, longtime Lake County resident and owner of Kelseyville Lumber & Supply Company, who made her unexpected exit from the world stage on May 28, 2022, just two days after his 78th birthday.

Anni left us as prematurely as she arrived on May 26, 1944, less than two weeks before D-Day, when she was born to Gerhard and Elisabeth Hann in a German-occupied region of Poland.

Although they lost almost everything in World War II, the family survived, and in 1952, with her parents and two older sisters, Lina and Adina, Anni emigrated to the United States, living in her new home in Oregon until she went to boarding school. school.

Rather than hindering her progress, these humble beginnings as a war refugee and immigrant propelled Anni towards a life of fulfillment. After studying business at Pacific Union College in Northern California, she quickly jumped into a job market that remained largely resistant to women, especially those with her ambition and drive. Anni embodied what many in the 60s and 70s would call a career woman – single, successful and fiercely independent.

As the manager of a roofing company in Rohnert Park, California in the late 1970s, Anni was enjoying the straight and fast trajectory of her working life when a tall, handsome stranger entered the field and threw a curve.

Anni may not have been looking for a soul mate at the time; nevertheless, she found one in Bob Borghesani, a rugged outdoorsman, country gentleman, and favorite Lake County son who frequented Anni’s workplace to buy supplies for his lumber business in booming in Kelseyville.

Reluctant at first, Anni eventually agreed to go out with Bob, and soon she was putting her pilot’s license to good use by flying out and visiting him in his hometown. With much in common, Bob and Anni became inseparable and they married in 1979, establishing a home with Bob’s two sons, Mark and Paul, who witnessed many prosperous and happy years, during which she supported the boys by attending their countless sporting events.

When the love of her life passed away in 2011, rather than closing the business she and Bob had worked so hard to maintain, Anni took over the reins of the operation and, with the help of Mark and Paul, oversaw the preservation of a success.

Both fiery and fearless, Anni was also intelligent, generous and kind. She was an Aunt Mame character to her many nieces and nephews, whom she all adored and showered with gifts. Charitable with her time for those less fortunate than herself, she has helped fund or volunteered for numerous relief efforts in various parts of the world, including traveling to Thailand and helping survivors after the devastating tsunami in 2004.

Anni was a larger-than-life inspiration, and anyone who entered her sphere was caught up in the whirlwind of her tireless energy and spirit. With her doors always open, Anni has provided her family and friends with countless opportunities to socialize and celebrate reunions, weddings, birthdays, holidays and yes, even funerals.

Christmas, in particular, marked a special time for Anni, when she not only entertained her extended family, but also hosted a ladies night out at Kelseyville Lumber which drew hundreds of women into the business for an evening of show and pleasure.

Despite these virtuous qualities, Anni was not beyond questionable tactics if it meant gaining the upper hand, especially when she and her sister Adina sat down to play cards against their husbands, Bob and Jack. As her son Mark attests, the two sisters “started talking German to each other, to their advantage of course, had fun, but then couldn’t keep their faces straight and started laughing loudly. It was hilarious to watch them.

A skydiver, avid golfer and seasoned equestrian, Anni was also a clotheshorse, and she loved shopping for wardrobes to suit every occasion, accumulating such a range of outfits that she required the expansion of storage space in her master bedroom, and Anni would no doubt agree that given more time, she would have achieved the equivalent of the Winchester Mystery House walk-in closet.

Anni’s warmth and goodwill extended beyond the human realm. His penchant for other species was also notable and may have started with one of his beloved dogs, a Shih Tzu named Daisy. She adopted many dogs throughout her life, providing stray and pound puppies with much-needed food and shelter. They, in turn, gave him company, as his later charges most certainly did — Bravo, Zoey, and Raven.

With an affinity for hummingbirds that bordered on fixation, Anni surrounded her house, backyard and large garden with numerous feeders, which were always filled. No doubt thousands of Anni’s hummingbirds, past, present and future, can thank Anni for their existence, as all who knew her can appreciate that she taught them some of life’s most important lessons.

Anni is survived by her two sisters, Lina and Adina, and her sons, Mark and Paul, though her memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew her.

The Lakeport Seventh-day Adventist Church will hold a memorial service for Anni on Friday, June 17 at 2 p.m.

Donations in his memory may be made to the Wasson Memorial Veterinary Clinic/Dosha Fund by mail or in person at 3083 Highway 175, Lakeport, CA 95453 or by phone at 707-263-5101.

Arrangements by Chapel of the Lakes Mortuary, 707-263-0357 or 707-994-5611, or visit www.chapelofthelakes.com.

KANYE West can’t find a buyer for his $11million Wyoming ranch eight months later – after dropping plans to move his Yeezy fashion HQ, The Sun can report exclusively.

In October 2021, the 44-year-old rapper and entrepreneur listed the 3,888-acre lot for sale with real estate agent JW Robinson, of DBW Real Estateafter buying it two years earlier.

Robinson told a Cody Enterprise local outlet at the time: “We showed the property three times a week, answering about 50 or more calls a week.”

But two-thirds of a year later, despite what would be around 1,700 calls and 100 visits, there are still no signs of a buyer for the “unique property”.

The grounds include two freshwater trophy lakes, equipment sheds, equestrian facilities, a clubhouse and a go-kart track, which Kanye had set up.

Realtors listed it as “61 Nielsen Rd”, deciding not to use the name Kanye gave it – West Lake Ranch – or its original nickname, Monster Lake Ranch.

According to TMZ, the land ranch has eight accommodation units and is known for fishing “monster trout.”

The stalled sale isn’t the only problem Ye is facing as he is also trying to get rid of various assets he owns in the Cowboy State after apparently abandoning plans to move his clothing brand Yeezy to the city. small rural town of Cody, which has a population of only 9,810.

Kanye, through his company Psalm Cody Commercial LLC, has listed various commercial properties and vacant lots scattered around the city for sale, The Sun can confirm.

He sold land for $1.3 million in November that was supposed to be Yeezy’s regional headquarters, but it never materialized.

On the ground, his team had erected a giant fabric tent to serve as a temporary storage place to stage the “future businesses”.

The Cody Planning and Zoning Board allowed him to keep the tent until it was sold, but this month the new owners were told to tear it down, despite their offer to make cosmetic improvements to the structure. of storage of 4,800 square feet. .

According to Cody Enterprise, Acting Chairman of the Board Scott Richard said, “It comes down to the architecture, is it suitable for the neighborhood?”

Kanye originally moved to the estate after it broke down in 2020 and made it his base during his presidential campaign.

Prominent residents have since blamed him for deserting the city and flouting planning laws.

City Mayor Matt Hall told the local Casper Star-Tribune newspaper that “West has promised to bring dozens of jobs to Cody and employ a local workforce, [but] no more than a handful of locals completed design work for him.”

ABANDONED HQ PLANS

The Sun has reached out to Kanye’s rep for comment.

Park County Commissioner Joe Tilden added that they tried to fast-track his hastily put together plans, but “it all sort of fell apart and caused us a lot of anxiety.”

Forbes reported that Kanye said in 2019, “Cody is a great place to stay if you want to work with a real, living, true, breathing founder who cares about humanity.”

Meanwhile, he also failed to sell a two-acre commercial property with a 6,900-square-foot building featuring five bedrooms in the basement and another five downstairs function rooms with laundry facilities and a full kitchen, listed on the DBW Realty website. for $739,000.

He had better luck getting rid of three vacant lots at $138,000 each, another at $200,000 and a fifth at $549,000, according to documents seen by The Sun.

A property he sublet for “Yeezy Productions,” costing pharmaceutical company Lannet $108,000 a year, is now up for sale for $2.5 million.

BITTER DIVORCE

One of the luxury SUVs in Kanye’s fleet also failed to sell, despite being advertised as “celebrity-owned raptors”.

All eight vehicles were auctioned by Musser Bros, one of which – a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor 4WD – did not win any bids.

The other vehicles, which were Ford Raptors, Ford F350s or Ford Expeditions, all sold for between $39,250 and $79,000, with the highest bids being over 100.

Kanye has recorded albums on his ranch and hosted a number of events on the estate, including his Sunday Service concerts.

His future ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and their four children – North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3 – have also been pictured on the site over the years.

They have enjoyed outdoor activities on the ranch, including horseback riding and playing on ATVs on trips away from their primary residence in Calabasas, Los Angeles, which Kim keeps amid their divorce.

The SKIMS founder, 41, filed in February 2021 after six years of marriage, and later moved on with SNL star Pete Davidson, 28, who met their children.

Ye denounced Pete in a number of bitter Instagram posts, while also criticizing ex Kim as they struggled to co-parent their children, but has since disappeared from the platform.

Kanye is still believed to be dating Instagram model Chaney Jones, who has been dubbed Kim’s twin by fans and has her name tattooed on her wrist.
