Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Despite the dazzling fashion and glittering jewels on offer, Couture Week in Paris was a decidedly chilly affair this season, as journalists battled freezing temperatures in the French capital. But the salons above the Boucheron flagship on Place Vendôme were lit from within, when Creative Director Claire Choisne presented her latest high jewelry collection to selected member of the press over tea and petit-fours. Cape clips became double pins, while necklaces turned into brooches before our eyes, as one by one, models wearing simple, 1960s-inspired outfits showcased each transformable piece from a unisex collection that felt fresh and contemporary, despite its antique inspiration. Two years in development, the Histoire de Style, Like a Queen collection is entirely based on a photograph in the Maison's archives of a diamond and aquamarine double-clip brooch made by Louis Boucheron.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin There’s a saying that says hard work + timing + talent = success. Sometimes, luck is even thrown into that equation. It’s clear that for the founders of Curio, the Miami-based high-fashion concept store, Danielle Licata and Jeffrey Lasota, they not only have all the ingredients for the recipe for success, but they have made one heck of a smorgasbord out of it. The duo launched Curio in the Faena Bazaar in December of 2019, literally moments before the pandemic gripped the world. For that reason alone the curated retail experience had every reason to fail. Curio entered the market as a high-end retail concept the size of a small department store which launched within a climate where e-commerce was pinned against brick and mortar. And then, the world was hit with the most catastrophic global event in recent history. At this point, the odds did not look good for the founders, but unbeknownst to them at that moment, timing was … [Read more...] about How Fashion Concept Shop, Curio, Became Miami’s Most Desirable Shopping Destination
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Internet advertising was born of the idea that a host of services and information would be available free in return for the ability to collect data from consumers in order to serve them better ads or search results. Yet that ideal “contract” with consumers has, in many cases, turned into a “faustian bargain” at the cost of personal privacy. Data, provided by consumers most often without their informed consent, is at the heart of the staggering rise in Internet Advertising. Digital advertising spending worldwide amounted to $521.02 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $876 billion by 2026, according to Statista, with marketers spending more on digital platforms than any other media format. Privacy legislation like Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) have attempted to even the playing field to provide consumers more control over their personal information. … [Read more...] about Can John Roa’s Caden Solve The Internet Advertising Privacy Problem?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The ambience and style of the W Aspen is a contrast to the surroundings of the city around it. It’s wooden exterior with vertical and horizontal beams has a hip twist and is likened to a Swiss chalet. Sitting at the base of the Rocky Mountains it feels like you’re at a quaint resort, but in fact you’re downtown Aspen near the goings on of shopping and dining. As you enter you notice the blue quirky yet groovy carpet and you also notice more of the wood detailing, as the hotel has incorporated the outside, inside. A wooden amphitheater type structure is the first thing that’s noticed when entering, and a large gray sculpture sits in the upper right corner. The wood clashes with the blue carpet and the green cushions on the amphitheater seating. To the right is the lobby with low-rise wooden benches and gray cushions. Two reception desks welcome guests as they check in, and the wall beside the concierge desk has a large … [Read more...] about The Uniquely Designed W Aspen That’s Nestled In Alpine Country
Republican New York Rep. Nicole Malliotakis sparred with CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Friday over removing Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The House of Representatives voted to remove Omar from the committee Thursday at the behest of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who also removed Democratic California Reps. Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff from the House Intelligence Committee. Omar faced scrutiny in 2019 for suggesting that American Jews advocate for “allegiance to a foreign country” and that Israel purchased American support. Malliotakis, who also served on the Foreign Affair committee, said Omar held “very dangerous views” surrounding Israel, for blaming the U.S. for the catastrophe in Venezuela and for allegedly having “diminished” 9/11 and thus should not serve on that committee. “Congresswoman, to the first point you made in your objections of her, she did respond saying that ‘I was in no way equating terrorist organizations … [Read more...] about Rep.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Professor of IO Psychology. CEO of fitt , a multi-method digital talent platform. In my work leading talent assessments, one of the most frequent questions I get asked by organizations is, "What role does personality play in job success?" Whether I am conducting talent reviews for succession planning in a corporate environment, advising a company on a hiring decision or giving feedback coaching for leadership development, there is always a keen interest in understanding the personality makeup of a candidate and whether or not this will have an impact on performance in a role. At the risk of giving the standard psychologist rendition of “there is no right or wrong answer,” the honest response is: It depends. Personality assessment in work settings is nothing new. Used first by the military to gauge the battle readiness of soldiers, tools have evolved over time, become more sophisticated and branched into … [Read more...] about Personality And Job Success: How To Separate The Method From The Madness
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The Dallas Mavericks have yet to sign forward/center Christian Wood to a contract extension, which is a bit eyebrow raising considering his play over the course of the season, as well as his contractual status. Wood will be an unrestricted free agent by the conclusion of the season, allowing him to sign anywhere without any level of compensation coming back to Dallas. This would be an eerily similar situation as the one Dallas found themselves in last offseason where Jalen Brunson left the team to sign with the New York Knicks. The Brunson situation was entirely avoidable, had Dallas signed him to a three-year contract in 2018 as opposed to four years. By signing him four, per CBA regulations, Brunson qualified for unrestricted free agency status given that he was a second-round selection. Had his contract expired after three seasons, he would have been a restricted free agent, and thus Dallas would have had more control … [Read more...] about How Much Patience Does Luka Dončić Have Left For The Mavericks?
