Chanel Sponsors Wheat Field Installation on Place Vendôme

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 04:00
FERTILE GROUND: Chanel is sponsoring an installation by French artist Gad Weil on Place Vendôme, from July 1 to 7, to coincide with the presentation of its new high-jewelry collection, Les Blés de Chanel. Weil will plant a wheat field in black lacquered boxes, next to the Ritz Paris hotel, across the square from Chanel’s jewelry and watch flagship, a spokeswoman for the brand said. The installation will then travel to Saumur, France, Gabrielle Chanel’s birthplace. Weil is best known for a series of takeovers of the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, in Paris, which he covered with a wheat field in 1990 and a garden in 2010. He has staged outdoor events on the Great Wall of China and in the French cities of Nice and Metz. Wheat is a symbol of wealth and prosperity in France, and Gabrielle Chanel used it as a good-luck charm throughout her apartment at 31 Rue Cambon: as a brass bouquet, a gold-leaf adornment for a fireplace mantel or a gilded footer for a Regency-style table with glass top.

Fondazione Zegna Helps Restore Punta Mesco in Italy

Fri, 06/24/2016 - 15:03
Fondazione Zegna has been supporting FAI, Italy’s National Trust, in restoring Podere Case Lovara in Punta Mesco, a rural area in the Italian region of Liguria. Located in the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the 45 hectares of farmland include three buildings. This week marked the opening of Podere Case Lovara to the public, after completion of the first part of the restoration, focusing on the renovation of two buildings — dating to the 18th and early 20th centuries — and the regeneration of the surrounding area. The goal is to bring people back to Punta Mesco after 20 years of abandonment and to reinstate the practice of agriculture, simultaneously enriching visitors’ experiences. To this end, the second part of the works will focus on the completion of a small farm-holiday complex with bedrooms, bathrooms, camping options and a catering area, opening to the public next year. Once fully operational, Podere Case Lovara will be a traditional farm with a farm-holiday complex that will be environmentally sustainable. Lucart Group, Ikea Italia and Deutche Post Foundation also contributed to the project.
