As part of its evo2 Collection, Mondaine Watch Ltd is launching an oversized version of one of its classic models. The new wristwatch, inspired by Bauhaus design, features a generous case diameter of 43 mm. The patented quick-change system makes it easy to switch between an elegant Milanese mesh band and a vegan grape leather strap HERE.
Iconic design meets generous dimensions
The latest MONDAINE evo2 is inspired by the Bauhaus design of the iconic Swiss Railways station clock. The key innovation: the diameter of the stainless-steel case is upsized to a generous 43 mm – giving this timepiece a prominent presence on every wrist. As well as making a stylish statement, the white or black dials with their minimalist Bauhaus design are impressively easy to read. The star of the show? The red second hand in the shape of a railway guard’s signalling disc. Thanks to its rounded contours, the evo2 43 mm nestles gently on the wrist, pampering the wearer with utmost comfort.
Milanese mesh band or vegan grape leather strap and quick-change system
It’s a matter of choice: the new oversized evo2 is available with an elegant Milanese mesh band or a vegan grape leather strap in black. The vegan strap consists of 75% eco-friendly plant-based composite material and 25% recycled PET. The evo2 collection features an ingenious quick-change system that makes it very easy to change the straps. The evo2
43 mm is powered by a high-precision Swiss RONDA 513 quartz movement. All MONDAINE watches embody Swiss quality and watchmaking tradition. They are hand-manufactured in Switzerland and tested for water resistance of 30 metres.
The new evo2 models with case sizes of 43 mm are available for $355 from selected watch retailers and at HERE.
Desenio makes it easy to update your home for the new season in a simple way: by switching up your art prints. Are you ready to update your home for SS21? Here are the four color palettes you’ll be decorating your walls with this spring and summer!
“We’re seeing a new, elegant take on the warm neutrals trend, influenced by the 60s and 70s,” says Desenio’s Executive Creative Director, Annica Wallin.
The Beige Balance trend is all about creating a comforting environment to make you feel at your most peaceful and sophisticated, no matter what the world throws at you. Warm neutrals combine to create an environment that is both cozy and chic.
“The Natural Living trend is heavily inspired by the rustic atmosphere of Provence, both in terms of materials and color palettes,” says Annica Wallin.
The Natural Living trend blurs the boundaries between inside and outside. Let fresh air blow into your home and uplift your spirits. Welcome meadow greens, citrus yellows, and natural wooden textures to open up your space and to enjoy the simple luxuries of nature.
“This trend brings much-needed happiness to our homes, focusing on playful, pastel colors in home decor and art,” says Annica Wallin.
The Pastel Paradise trend updates neon hues for 2021, giving them a softer, more palatable tint. It’s up to you how you incorporate these colors into your space: be bold and make them a key colour scheme or use them as subtle accents in your home.
“Serene Spaces is a more minimalistic trend that hones in on a bright and light aesthetic that’s free of clutter. White on white tones, accessorizing with mirrors and patterned glass, and open, clean spaces create a simple and uplifting feeling,” says Annica Wallin.
In today’s fast-paced world, many of us look to the past to inspire notions of a simpler life. The Serene Spaces trend invites us to incorporate traditional elements such as embroidered fabrics and worn surfaces into an otherwise modern, clean, and bright space.

As of late, Rolls-Royce invited a slew of journalists and digital influencers from around the globe to test out their newly introduced SUV. Jackson Hole, Wyoming is notably recognized for it’s elite residents and celebrity visitors alike, including Kanye West, Sandra Bullock and Harrison Ford. Yet, this time around the Snow King Resort and one of its steepest slopes had become acquainted with the Cullinan. Not the largest rough diamond found in South Africa in 1905 but the manufacturer’s first-ever sport utility vehicle. Yes, we couldn’t conceive that a Rolls could ever climb a mountain but seeing is believing.
As we ascended to the top with the 6000 lb gem, she started to metamorphose from a stately Caterpillar into bodacious butterfly. We went over unpaved trails and ruts all the way to the summit (8010 ft above sea level) for pastries and coffee. On the way down with merely a switch of a button we descended with ease over gravel and dirt all while being enamored by the Spirit of Ecstacy with her wings throwing caution to the wind.
On the road, we felt every bit of 563 hp (627 lb-ft torque @ 1600 rpm) as we swiveled through the two-lane main road with minimal traffic. Just as graceful as her siblings and as celebrated as the Phantom we witnessed tons of townies gawk at her effortless design and styling. Her grill kept in line with the overall DNA of the brand but its standard 22″ part polished shadow wheels matched her midnight sapphire exterior nicely.
Our deep scarlet red leather interior was enunciated with the usual technology and innovation of their BMW iDrive-inspired infotainment system as seen in the Ghost; however, in the back we had separate seats and access to tablet-like screens which erupted by the touch of a button. Along the back top panels were buttons to dial up or down the 22-speaker bespoke sound system which mimicked an IMAX theater. We bopped around the back in comfort and chit chatted with no outside noise due to their 200 lbs of sound-deadening insulation and privacy glass which lurks behind your head.
Like most automobiles in this segment, her dual-pane sunroof opened up wide enough for you to want to hop up and cleave your head out while screaming all the way to prom. Our model didn’t feature the tailgate retractable seats; but nonetheless this vehicle will most likely end up at some stadium for playoffs with a chilled champagne bottle and scotch in the back middle console with custom etched snifters.
This vehicle’s MSRP is $325,000 but our model tested was approximately $400,000. Is the price worth it? Hell yes! After all, this is the first in its family, which can conform to most terrains and excursions. Go figure, the youngest in its batting order can be used to pick the kids up from school, off-road and be chauffeured to Rihanna’s Annual Diamond Ball. It’s highly probable you may see this truck at a Costco’s as well as Jay-Z and Beyonce’s next On The Run tour. Having said that, this is most decidedly one of Rolls-Royce’s more practical vehicles as it will and can be used on an everyday basis. With its dynamic all-terrain capabilities, safety features and height, you’ll have more command of the road that any of its tribe members.

AYITI Gallery is pleased to present the works of seven talented Haitian artists carefully selected for their ingenuity, their originality, their narrative and their artistic potential. Our artists represent the new wave of International Inspirational artists that is currently flowing the market. They respond to the rising demand of new art that inspires and educates. They invite the viewer to think deeply and explore a new visionary realm. Our artists are messengers and healers. They express a state of consciousness that transcends a reality. Intuitive, they speak with their soul and push the boundaries commonly known of the art world. Their creative imagination rooted in their identity has preserved the authenticity of their art and freed them from the western norms. Fresh, elegant, avant-garde, colourful and mindful, their art has a unique voice. The quality and originality of their work reminds us Picasso, Dali, Basquiat, Bosch, Breton, or Bruegel the Elder. All are dedicated to an established and mature style and create masterpieces after masterpieces. All have the potential to be the art masters of tomorrow. They are permanently exhibiting in the UK.
AYITI Gallery is a brand name of THE smARTest PROJECT LTD, a certified social art enterprise founded in 2015 that initially supports (isolated) genius artists from Haiti to exhibit and sell their work to a global audience, live and thrive from their art. Over the years, we have pioneered with success the introduction of Haitian art in London. We have increased the visibility of our artists and the value of their art. We have revealed up-and-coming masters and highlighted the emergence of a new trend. We have shown that other form of creativity exist beyond the mainstreamed art. We have created a precedent that revealed a huge niche market for our artists, and furthermore for International Inspirational artists. The potential is significant and the supply of rare and fascinating art is endless. We are present in two thriving markets (African art and its diaspora; and Outsider art) which are triggering a breakthrough in the global art market encouraging collectors to invest now in our artists. We have a long-term vision that goes beyond Haiti, aiming to change the life of thousands through arts, and exploring new collaboration in and beyond the art world to further the vision of our artists and diffuse more Inspirational art in our daily life.
Despite their undeniable talent and their unique sense of creativity, an infinite number of International Artists have limited access to the International Art scene. Their geographic location, their economic situation, their anonymity, the absence of art education background, the nonconformity of their art and their disconnection with the art world isolate these artists from the main international art hubs. The art market has become somehow elitist and conservative. It favours artists who have sufficient financial means to show their work, artists who are able or are enough proactive to market themselves online and offline, artists who have pursued art studies, artists who follow trends and respond to the commercial demand of the market, or artists who live in western countries. It brings artists to compete with one another on an economic basis and rejects a vast majority of talented artists worldwide. It limits the endless variety and originality that International Artists could show to the world, it distorts the true meaning that originates from the creation of art, it narrows the notion of art itself influencing the regard, the taste and the decisions of the general public, and it promotes the duplication of art and artists. The art market has created a replicable business model that runs out of steam and seeks new inspiration. Art is more than a product. It’s a vision, the introspection of a soul, a universal language connecting cultures and individuals together. Art is an invitation to travel. We are meant to bring change and explore alternatives to nurture the infinite potential of International Art and the creative vision of Inspirational Artists.

▪ We believe in equal opportunities for all talented, creative and inspiring artists to show their work worldwide no matter their origin, their background, their status, their renown or their connection to the art world

▪ We believe in new technologies to bring the vision of Inspirational Artists to life

▪ We believe in more Inspirational Art in our daily life to stimulate collective consciousness, taking art out of the traditional art premises.

The powerful all-new BMW M5 model fuses an elegant business sedan with a high-performance sports car. The innovative all-wheel drive system named M xDrive, and 600 hp engine equips the driver with incredible power, precision and agility. The BMW M5 comes equipped with specially engineered P Zero tires from Pirelli to transfer these features to the road seamlessly.
The P Zero tire is approved in the following dimensions:
Front axle: 275/35 ZR 20 (102Y) XL P Zero
Rear axle: 285/35 ZR 20 (105Y) XL P Zero
This P Zero variant was developed in close cooperation with the development and testing departments of Pirelli and BMW. The starting point of their collaboration was the new P Zero ultra-high performance tire unveiled last spring.
In line with Pirelli’s perfect-fit philosophy, a P Zero tire version was specifically tailored for the BMW M5 to perfectly harmonize with this model’s chassis and features.
Pirelli engineers have modified the tire’s tread pattern to optimize the noise level and adapt the P Zero’s performance to the BMW M5’s driving characteristics. The tire compound contains special polymers developed by Pirelli for Formula 1, which have proven themselves in the premier class of motorsport. Therefore this P Zero provides the BMW M5 with high level grip and good performance in wet conditions. To ensure that the vehicle’s front and rear axles are balanced as well as possible, the engineers have used different layered constructions in the front and rear tire carcasses. In addition, the P Zero tire contours have been matched to the wheel rim and ultimately are designed to give the best tire performance possible for the M5.
