Bright and vibrant colours are at the heart of Kenzo’s new advertising campaign, dedicated to the spring/summer 2019 season, signed by the famous photographer David LaChapelle. A will of the creative duo in charge of the artistic direction of the house, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.

Through this campaign, called “Kenzotopia“, Kenzo wanted to convey an optimistic message, full of joy, modernity and diversity. The objective is to celebrate all styles and shapes, as specified by the brand on its Instagram account.

To do this, David LaChapelle used many sets in his studio in Los Angeles, focusing in particular on landscapes of exotic nature. Several moving silhouettes, declined in bright shades, are based on these familiar decors creating an explosion of colors.

Azora, the luxury yacht by Ritz-Carlton

The Yacht Collection division of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company recently announced the name of its first yacht, Azora.

We are happy to finally be able to reveal the name of our first yacht […] We wanted to choose a name that embodies the desire to escape and that can make travellers dream. Azora refers to the beauty of the sky and the ocean. In the collective imagination, the colour blue represents peace and clarity, two feelings we want to bring to our customers during their stay on board,” said Doug Prothero, CEO of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.

The 190-metre-long ship will be able to accommodate up to 298 passengers in 149 suites, each with its own terrace. The ship will also have two 102m2 signature suites, each with a 55m2 terrace. Azora’s modern design was designed by The Ritz-Carlton and the famous Tillberg Design of Sweden.

Concerning the activities on board, passengers will not be left out: restaurants with gastronomic experiences, all managed by the star chef Sven Elverfeld of The Ritz-Carlton Wolfsburg, but also activities, water sports, wifi included and wherever you are on the water, spa, excursions… Everything has been designed to best pamper the future customers of these exceptional cruises.

Its first outings, scheduled for the first quarter of 2020, should delight future privileged passengers.
