Sound of the Future
Danish high-end audio equipment producer Bang & Olufsen is marking its 90th anniversary by rolling out the BeoLab 90 loudspeakers, which it says are the most innovative on the market. Offering Bang & Olufsen’s trademark combination of sound quality and inventive design, the speakers boast new technology called Active Room Compensation. Designed to take into account the type of interior they are placed in, your furniture, the placement of the loudspeakers and your listening position, this technology allows you to hear exactly where musicians and actors are located in the overall sound experience.

With the BeoLab 90 unique Beam Width Control feature, you can adjust the width of the sound beam to your listening preferences and needs in a given moment. At the press of a button, you can switch from the speakers’ designated “sweet spot” to party mode, where the sound evenly fills the entire room.

The speakers come in a complex aluminum frame that weighs in at a hefty 65 kilograms. The speaker covers of black fabric are reminiscent of sails, while the rounded wooden base seems to lift the heavy speakers off the floor.

Opposites Attract
Opposite, a new jewelry collection from Calvin Klein, is based on intertwined circles that combine shiny stainless steel with a black, brushed PVD coating. The simple yet timelessly elegant collection comprises a pendant, a pair of long drop earrings, a pair of stud earrings, a bracelet and a ring.

Sweet-Smelling Temptation
Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi, a new flowery and Oriental fragrance from the Kilian perfume brand, opens with an intriguing, harmonious blend of bright and fresh neroli and hydrangea scents. The heart note consists of a bouquet of white and cream-colored tuberose and ylang-ylang blossoms combined with sweet and shy Bulgarian rose. The sensual appeal of Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi is highlighted by the fragrance’s soft base note of noble sandalwood and vanilla.The flask comes in a refined, black-enameled box with two snakes on the lid, symbolizing temptation and dangerous attraction. You can use the box as an original and elegant clutch purse.

Time for Elegance
Pathos, a new line of watches from Swiss watchmaker Carl F. Bucherer, delivers jewelry at its best. The glossy mechanism of each Pathos timepiece is surrounded by a “halo” made of 18-carat gold. The halo cleverly reflects rays of light onto a two-color bracelet made of polished pink gold and stainless steel. The delicately decorated, elegant faces of Pathos watches feature pink-gold hour markings and Roman numerals.

Classic Yet Dashing
Clothes from the autumn and winter collection by Marlu, a Polish fashion brand, combine a timeless, classic look with a dash of something adventurous. The new Marlu collection includes cashmere coats, architecture-inspired dresses and fanciful jackets. Most of the clothes feature hand-painted, gold-plated feathers that give a dashing note to the otherwise minimalistic and classic designs. Marlu makes its clothes of the finest materials imported from Italy, such as silk, wool and leather.
