Con la Orquesta Sinfónica de Venezuela, bajo la batuta del maestro Alfredo Rugeles y la participación estelar del laureado guitarrista español Miguel Marín, así como el pianista venezolano Carlos Urbaneja.

El viernes 27 de octubre a las 6:00 p.m., la Embajada de España ofrecerá al público venezolano su “Gala Española 2017”, en la Sala Ríos-Reyna del Teatro Teresa Carreño, con un concierto especial a cargo de la Orquesta Sinfónica de Venezuela, patrimonio cultural de la nación, bajo la dirección del maestro invitado Alfredo Rugeles, interpretando un repertorio conformado por obras de Isaac Albéniz, Manuel de Falla, Joaquín Rodrigo y del venezolano Antonio Lauro, contando con la participación especial del virtuoso guitarrista español Miguel Marín, considerado una de las figuras más prometedores de la península ibérica.

El evento también tendrá como solista al destacado pianista venezolanoCarlos Urbaneja y a la Agrupación Flamenco Venezuela. Esta gala es posible gracias al trabajo de la Embajada de España por difundir e impulsar la cultura ibérica en Venezuela, contando con el apoyo de la Fundación Teatro Teresa Carreño y el patrocinio del Hotel Gran Meliá Caracas.

El programa seleccionado llevará al público a través de un recorrido musical que abarca diferentes tendencias de la música española, así como por obras venezolanas influenciadas por la corriente ibérica. Mediante la música sinfónica serán descritos diferentes lugares, paisajes, costumbres y épocas de España, nación que en Venezuela cuenta con una enorme y querida colonia.

El concierto abrirá con una selección de la "Suite Iberia” de Isaac Albéniz, compuesta entre 1905 y 1909, considerada una de las obras para piano más importantes del repertorio español; la transcripción para orquesta fue realizada por Enrique Fernández Arbós. Seguidamente, será interpretada "Noches en los Jardines de España”, escrita en 1915, nada menos que por el andaluz Manuel De Falla y estrenada en el Teatro Real de Madrid en 1916. Esta pieza reviste una gran riqueza musical y describe tres importantes jardines de la realeza. El solista será Carlos Urbaneja, consagrado pianista, quien ha actuado junto a las principales orquestas sinfónicas de Venezuela, así como en diferentes festivales del país y en escenarios de Latinoamérica y Europa.

Después del intermedio, la audiencia disfrutará de dos obras del afamado guitarrista venezolano Antonio Lauro, en el marco de la celebración del Centenario de su natalicio, como lo son “Andreína” y “Natalia”, escritas ambas en 1939. El maestro Lauro está catalogado como uno de los grandes exponentes de la guitarra clásica mundial, así como uno de los mejores compositores del Siglo XX para el instrumento. El solista será el invitado especial de España: Miguel Marín, ganador del concurso de guitarra Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga, así como del primer premio en los concursos Juventudes Musicales de España y en el Festival Internacional de Guitarra “Ferrán Sor”.



Seguidamente, Miguel Marín junto a la Sinfónica de Venezuela, ejecutarán una de las obras maestras escritas para guitarra y que quizá sea uno de los conciertos más famosos de todos los tiempos para este instrumento: elConcierto de Aranjuez de Joaquín Rodrigo. Fue compuesto en 1939 en París, en un intento de su autor por reflejar a través de la música los jardines del Palacio Real de Aranjuez o la otrora residencia primaveral del rey Felipe II. Según Rodrigo, también intenta transportar al oyente por los sonidos de la naturaleza a otra época. Sus melodías han trascendido a la ópera y a la música popular, inclusive ha sido versionado adaptado a géneros como el jazz y el rock.



Para cerrar la gala, el maestro Alfredo Rugeles guiará a la orquesta a través de las notas de otra obra notable de Manuel de Falla: "El Sombrero de tres picos” (Suites Nº 1 y 2). Se trata de un ballet basado en la novela homónima del escritor Pedro Antonio de Alarcón, estrenado en el Teatro de la Alhambra de Londres, en 1919. Para dar mayor colorido al espectáculo y finalizar con broche de oro, participará la Agrupación Flamenco Venezuela.

La “Gala Española 2017” se realiza en coproducción con el Teatro Teresa Carreño y cuenta con el patrocinio del Hotel Gran Meliá Caracas. La cita será el viernes 27 de octubre a las 6:00 p.m., en la Sala Ríos-Reyna del Teatro Teresa Carreño.

FASHION NEWS: Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme Louis Vuitton Returns Home


FASHION NEWS:

Louis Vuitton will open the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme, a new gem set in this most storied of Parisian squares. The Maison, at 2 Place Vendôme, newly designed and re-instated by architect Peter Marino, marks the House’s grand return to where its story began over 160 years ago, when a young Louis Vuitton opened his first store.

Travel goods, fashion and jewellery have been part of Place Vendôme and its neighbourhood for over 300 years, and it was in these streets that Louis Vuitton learned his craft and where he founded his first store in 1854. When the new Louis Vuitton Maison opens its doors on 4 October 2017, it will reunite Place Vendôme and the House’s traditional métiers. Couture, ready-to-wear, jewellery, watchmaking, leather goods, shoes, fragrances, accessories, and artisanal workshops will be brought together, all in one place, all on one Place.



This venue is very symbolic for Louis Vuitton as the Place Vendôme – just like the Château of Versailles – is one of the most beautiful examples of French artistry of the 17th-century. Under the impulse of Louis XIV and Jean-Baptiste Colbert, the Château of Versailles became the cradle of French luxury and a showcase for French craftsmanship and savoir-faire around the world. Both designed and built by architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Place Vendôme and Versailles share a heritage that today remains important to Louis Vuitton. 

These two beautiful examples of French artistry embody the type of elegance and dedication to craft that is today the realm of Louis Vuitton. As the worthy heir to this tradition, it was only natural for Louis Vuitton to establish workshops and showcases its creations at the heart of Place Vendôme, thus ensuring that the legacy continues for future generations.



Travel destination

The Maison is situated in two hôtel particuliers – classic Parisian townhouses – which, over the years have been home to courtiers, nobles, aristocracy, the occasional princess and the future emperor Napoléon III. Once known as Hôtel Baudet de Morlet and Hôtel Heuzé de Vologer, these hôtels were completed in 1714, but greatly altered over the years, including a particularly destructive “renovation” in the 1980s. Architect Peter Marino has now returned these two buildings to their former glory: floors have been returned to their 18-century grandeur, ceilings to their original heights (nearly five metres on the first floor), and the façade, designed by the architect of the Palace of Versailles, Jules-Hardouin Mansart, has been sensitively restored. Throughout the Maison, Peter Marino has deftly blended the old and new, employing techniques and materials that reference French history and craftsmanship, while carefully integrating ultra-modern designs. Behind the original façade, the Maison has been designed to be open and filled with light. The extensive use of glass, light-coloured stone, artisanal wall coverings, and beautiful parquet and stone flooring allows each floor to subtly assert its unique character, while remaining part of a coherent whole.

On the ground floor, natural light from the extensive number of windows and doorways illuminates the leather goods, accessories, textiles, fragrances and, on the Place Vendôme side, a full range of jewellery and timepieces. Louis Vuitton men’s universe is upstairs on the mezzanine and its herringbone parquet, with leather goods, ready-to-wear including the formal offer, shoes, travel items and accessories displayed on leather- lined shelving. The stairs, which continue to the first floor, provide high levels of contrast: 18th century design in stone completed with ultra-modern high-tech glass balustrades suspended by stainless steel cables. On this first floor are the women’s ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, presented in a beautifully airy, high-ceilinged space with richly intricate Versailles parquet. On the second floor, travel-related items – from Louis Vuitton City Guides and travel books to luggage – share space with the Objets Nomades, a collection of designer travel and home related objects, offered for the first time in France on a permanent basis. There is also a hot-stamping desk and a Savoir-faire corner, the latter being the House’s first permanent space offering demonstrations of Louis Vuitton’s traditional know-how to clients. On the Place Vendôme side, the second floor hosts the Appartement, where clients can be invited for private viewings of the collection. 


Exceptional savoir-faire

The Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme will be home to two working ateliers, representative of the House’s ancestral savoir-faire. The haute joaillerie atelier, hidden away discreetly under the eaves, is where Louis Vuitton’s jewellers will transform exceptional precious stones into the House’s most exclusive high jewellery. In the Atelier Rare & Exceptionnel, celebrities and the House’s most prestigious clients will have the chance to discover remarkable pieces from the latest collections. These can then be fitted and customised by the atelier’s in-house artisans, who will also be available to fashion exclusive red-carpet gowns.

Louis Vuitton and arts

At the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme, the House’s full product offer will sit alongside a selection of contemporary artworks, some specially commissioned. The 33 works, representing artists from 6 continents including Laurent Grasso, Yan Pei Ming, Stephen Sprouse, Serge Alain Nitegeka and Paul Nabulumo Namarinjmak, will be on show throughout the Maison.

The Louis Vuitton archives have chosen two historical trunks to display at the Maison. The first is a Library Trunk, a style originally designed by Gaston-Louis Vuitton (1883-1970) for his personal use. This example, was ordered in 1933 by Mrs. W., a celebrated journalist, playwright and Hollywood screenwriter, and has space for books and a typewriter. The second piece is a 1917 Steamer Trunk, a recent addition to the House’s archives. Its presence in the Maison is fitting: its original owner, Mr. O., was one of Paris’ most admired and influential jewellers for over two decades and for many years was based only a few doors away at 16 Place Vendôme.



Bespoke offer

Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has been synonymous with the Art of Travel and this remains the foundation of the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme’s product offer. These products show Louis Vuitton’s commitment to the finest craftsmanship and materials, technical and stylistic inventiveness, and an absolute attention to finishing touches.

Highlights at the Maison include: The Maison’s focus on contemporary art and artists will also be celebrated with a preview launch of the second chapter of Masters, the continuing collaboration between the House and Jeff Koons. A new painting from Koon’s ‘Gazing Ball’ series, based on a work by a French Old Master, will be exclusively launched for the occasion of the Maison’s opening. The Masters collaboration sees the New York-based artist’s reinterpretations of Masters’ paintings transposed onto the canvas of iconic Louis Vuitton bags, including the Speedy, Keepall and Neverfull, using innovative printing techniques. The exclusive pieces will be unveiled and released at the Maison as a preview of the main collection launched in November. 

An exclusive version of the Capucines bag will be launched at the opening of the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme. This new version of the Louis Vuitton classic, named after Rue Neuve-des-Capucines, the House’s birthplace, is crafted in shaded metallic crocodile skin and features an elegant two-tone “V” clasp.

Also arriving in Place Vendôme are the Objets Nomades, the House’s unique collection of travel and home objects created in collaboration with some of the world’s most renowned designers. For the Maison’s opening, the Campana Brothers’ sensuous Cocoon chair will be accompanied by Marcel Wanders’ elegant Lune Chair and delicate Diamond Screen, Tokujin Yoshioka’s Monogram-inspired Blossom Stool, and India Mahdavi’s marquetry Talisman table. Beautiful lighting will be provided by Raw Edges’ Concertina shades and Atelier Oï’s Spiral Lamp. The Maison’s selection of Objets Nomades will be renewed every three months giving clients access to the full collection of 25 objects. 



The Maison’s opening will be marked by the creation of three exceptional high jewellery sets, specially designed and produced by the haute joaillerie workshop. Inspired.

By the most recent Louis Vuitton high jewellery collection, Conquêtes, the pieces highlight the House’s passion for remarkable craftsmanship, artistry, and the most beautiful gemstones, such as Paraiba tourmalines and mandarin garnets. 

Fifteen years ago, Louis Vuitton created the now iconic Tambour and its unique curved case. The latest addition to the collection, Tambour Moon Tourbillon Volant “Poinçon de Genève”, highlights a skeleton movement revealing its mechanism and a “Geneva Seal”, the highest quality standard in watchmaking. For the opening of the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme, La Fabrique du Temps, the Genevan watchmaking manufacture of Louis Vuitton, has created a remarkable version of this new Tambour, made with 99 grams of platinum and with 296 diamonds inlaid on the case and movement. The watch is the ultimate in exclusivity: only one will be made.

About Louis Vuitton

Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has brought unique designs to the world, combining innovation with style, always aiming for the finest quality. Today, the Maison remains faithful to the spirit of its founder, Louis Vuitton, who invented a genuine “Art of Travel” through luggage, bags and accessories which were as creative as they were elegant and practical. Since then, audacity has shaped the story of Louis Vuitton. Faithful to its heritage, Louis Vuitton has opened its doors to architects, artists and designers across the years, all the while developing disciplines such as ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, watches, jewellery and stationery. These carefully created products are testament to Louis Vuitton’s commitment to fine craftsmanship.

FASHION / MODA: ELIE SAAB_Amazon crush - Ready-to-wear Spring-Summer 2018 collection

A jungle breeze sweeps through the air, as the ELIE SAAB SS’18 collection celebrates nature’s botanic 



masterpiece: the Amazon. Like a living, breathing forest in motion, the collection boasts a coming together of light, fluid-like materials, all layered in perfect unison. Python appears as both an imposing print on total-looks, and an intricately embroidered pattern that shimmers in the dark as it adorns long, elaborate dresses. As shirts & t-shirts come in to bring a relaxed attitude to the silhouettes, the overall collection reveals a play on proportions, with jackets taking on a longer stance and skirts appearing ever shorter. Thin and silky fringes also swing away as they cross the undefined paths, like a dynamic dance of jungle vines. These sensual fringes embrace the woman’s figure and offer an ultra-feminine dimension to the collection, as do the revealing laser cut-outs introduced this Spring/Summer. The bright color palette of warm yellow, hibiscus red, waterfall blue, orchid pink and shades of white bursts into life amidst the deep jungle green canvas that surrounds them. Taking its cues from the dense rainforest and its living creatures that thrive from the canopy to the grassy floor, outlines of wild leafage are articulated through innovative lace, and vivid vegetal prints act as a statement throughout, with leafy graphics animating pieces, from summer leather jackets to flowy evening dresses. The Amazon influence also spreads into the accessories, as ELIE SAAB signature handbags and clutches are revisited featuring wide add-on straps in studded leather and python. To suit different styles, the straps are interchangeable, from short to cross-body, or as a wrist handle. In line with this playful approach, colourful oversized hats and eyewear also make their appearance on the runway. A true reflection of the jungle’s untamed & wild nature, feminine cuts and organic layering seamlessly fuse together to create a bold ELIE SAAB SS’18 collection that embodies the free-spirited nature of the woman of today.
