NECKLACE by VALENTINE FRANC

(‘Fuck More – Talk Less’ necklace)

These tags are limited edition with all items lovingly handmade by the designer (and for more of whom check her on WHO?). They are created either in sterling silver or 22 carat gold.Each one is individually crafted, even if the message is the same, as they are made in little series depending on size and material. Even so, there are nonetheless, subtle differences that make each item absolutely unique.On the website you will see classic designs and more conventional epigrams or slogans and also those flights of fancy, created in a moment of divine madness and spontaneity.

RESTAURANT FORMEL B* (COPENHAGEN)

On the border between the Frederiksberg and Vesterbro neighborhoods, the formal and ultrastylish restaurant is the culinary showcase of two local geniuses, Kristian Møller and Rune Jochumsen, who justifiably are having a torrid romance with the Danish press. No chefs in Copenhagen are as fanatical about serving fresh ingredients as this pair, who take the best of Danish raw materials and transform them into classical French dishes. On a daily basis, their specially picked suppliers arrive — fresh vegetables from their own farm in Lammefjorden, dairy products from Grambogård. They even have their own mushroom grower who brings them fresh cèpes and chanterelles. Their menu is seasonally adjusted and changes every 2 weeks. You might begin, for example, with a terrine of foie gras with truffles and gooseberries and follow with monkfish with lemon chutney and a lightly salted and glazed quail with fresh chanterelles, perhaps tender rack of veal with foie gras and fresh cherries. For a finish, the fresh raspberries with a licorice sorbet provides a grand finale.

RUINART: THE GOLDEN THREAD WINESTOPPER

In 1855 the use of twisted iron wire was introduced in Champagne, preceding the cork cage that would be perfected thirty years later. In 2010 Ruinart, founded in 1729 and the oldest of all Champagne houses, asked Patricia Urquiola to create a gold cork for the 2010 edition of the “Collection Prestige”, to transform each bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs into an art object.Drawing her inspiration from the time-honored cork-wiring technique, the Golden Thread spread their delicate arcs and curves over the entire neck of the bottle, creating a shining web that inspires admiration even before the bottle is opened. Comes beautifully packaged in a gold gift box with the Golden Thread motif.

JEAN DUNAND, LES PALMIERS PANELLING FOR SMOKING ROOM, 1928-1929, COMMISSIONED FOR MADAME COLETTE ABOUCAYA’S APARTMENT ON RUE DE MONCEAU PARIS

Commissioned in around 1928-1929 for the smoking room of Madame Colette Aboucaya’s apartment on Rue de Monceau, Paris, the Les Palmiers panelling reinterprets the theme of palm trees in extreme, near-abstract Cubistic stylisation. These panels of incised, textured and lacquered wood constitute a stunning room, an exceptional and evocative Art Deco environment.  Dunand and his team of skilled craftsmen have exploited a variety of techniques to create subtle contrasts of surfaces in black and shades of silver-grey lacquers.  This room is undoubtedly one of the most sophisticated domestic projects of the period, each detail meticulously considered.  It is estimated at 2 to 3 million euros.

1999 BOLLINGER AY VIEILLES VIGNES FRANCAISES BLANC DE NOIRS CHAMPAGNE


Bollinger makes about 170 cases of this, only in certain vintages. It is made from three plots of entirely ungrafted Pinot Noir farmed in the traditional en foule method, a super dense plantation (about 30,000 vines per hectare- normal is 7000!) where the vines are allowed layer up. The sites in Ay consist of the 1/3 acre Clos St. Jacques and the half acre Chaudes Terres, a walled garden directly behind Bollinger. I have stood in this second vineyard- it looks ghastly; it is hard to imagine one of the best wines on the planet coming from it. It is a web of canes and gnarly old stumps, like a set out of the Lord of the Rings! They also have slightly less than half an acre in Bouzy called the Croix Rouge planted in the same fashion that goes into this wine. I remember when I first read in Michael Broadbent’s Vintage Wine about the ‘pre-phyloxera flavor’ and jealously wondering what it would be like… The Vieilles Vignes Francaises Blanc de Noir delivers it! There is a strong resemblance to Quinta do Noval’s Nacional, which is the hot climate equivalent of this exquisite Champagne. This Champagne has a taste like no other. It is the most expensive wine of any kind that I have ever purchased for myself personally, and it delivers value even at its bank-breaking price. It is truly a singular experience.

SHOWGIRL LAURIE CORSET by WHAT KATIE DID

From What Katie Did’s website : “Our Laurie corset features a saucily dipped sweetheart neckline, shaped cups and gored hips for a perfectly wasp-waisted silhouette.The Showgirl version of our classic design is made extra special by the addition of an extravagantly pleated frill adorning the top and bottom, and a cheeky little bow nestling between the cups.The cut of this corset is suitable for a variety of shapes: small busted ladies will find the shaped cups uplifting, but those with larger breasts will find them supportive and non-restrictive. The hip goring allows for greater cinching power to the waist without compromising any of the comfort: something that appeals to both new and experienced corset wearers alike.The scarlet satin and luxe detail makes the Showgirl Laurie a truly exceptional corset, suitable for burlesque sirens and red-blooded temptresses alike.Designed to fit A-E cups, this corset has 6 loops to which you can attach suspenders if required.”

FERRARI 330 GT (1965)

There were 423 examples of the left-hand drive Series II produced with coachwork by Pininfarina and featuring the traditional two headlight front end. It was unveiled to the world at a press conference in 1964 and would be the final iteration of the 330 GT. Among styling changes, it also brought significant technical improvements over the cars it was replacing. It had an independent rear setup featuring Koni adjustable shocks, a seperate braking system for the rear which improved stopping power but also added weight. That weight led to a decision to make alloy wheels standard with the RW 3812 Borrani wire wheels offered as optional equipment.This 1965 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II features a V12 engine with single overhead camshafts, Weber carburetors and 300 horsepower. There is a five-speed manual gearbox , four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. It was given a restoration in 1994 and finished in dark blue metallic paint and a chocolate Connelly hide interior. The Borrani wire wheels have been rebuilt and an aftermarket radio installed.It was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $85,000 – $125,000. It was offered without reserve. As the gavel fell, the lot had been sold for $82,500 including buyer’s premium.

CARMEN – “TIME TO MOVE” (1984)

(Written-By – Daisy Earnest, Leula Clark)

Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around, time to moooooooooove.
Every time I hear this groove, it makes me want to move.
Must be the feeling it brings to you that makes you feel what to do.
I know I can’t keep still for I don’t mind to hold you within.
When it comes, I start to yell, the next down on the floor.
Green lights start to flash, telling me it’s time to go.
Sirens start to sound, that means for me to get on down.
It’s time to move, time to get loose, anywhere you are.
It’s time to groove, me and you out there on the floor.
There’s no way to keep on grooving, no matter how you try.
And around, you feel that pain, I wouldn’t tell you no lie.
Mister DJ, let the music play, play it all night long.
There’s something, the rhythm of the beat that makes me carry on.
Green lights start to flash, telling me it’s time to go.
Sirens start to sound, that means for me to get on down.
It’s time to move, time to get loose, anywhere you are.
It’s time to groove, me and you out there on the floor.
Feeyy it’s time to let out the flow control, feeyy it’s time to boogie.
Feeyy it’s time to let out the flow control, feeyy it’s time to boogie.
Time to moooooooooove, time to groooooooooove.
Green lights start to flash, telling me it’s time to go.
Sirens start to sound, that means for me to get on down.
It’s time to move, time to get loose, anywhere you are.
It’s time to groove, me and you out there on the floor.
Feeyy it’s time to let out the flow control, feeyy it’s time to boogie.
Feeyy it’s time to let out the flow control, feeyy it’s time to boogie.
Feeyy it’s time to let out the flow control, feeyy it’s time to boogie.
Feeyy it’s time to let out the flow control, feeyy it’s time to boogie.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to moooooooooove, time to groooooooooove.
It’s time to move, it’s time to groove.
It’s time to move, it’s time to groove.
It’s time to move, time to get loose, everybody on the floor oh oh.
It’s time to go some more oh oh. Come on, get on down. Come ooooon !
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.
Time to break it all down, do it all around.

With a loyal and ever growing following his limited edition pieces can be quite difficult to get a hold of.Graz’s personal favorite. The CPS has an old school “Italian mafia vibe, but also Bob Dylan rock ‘n’ roll. Its kinda blocky and bulky and sits on that line in between masculine and feminine.” Offered here in classic black with grey gradient lenses.
