occhiali-da-sole-louis-vuitton-2013

Dopo una lunga attesa da parte degli amanti dell’alta moda maschile, ecco arrivare finalmente nelle boutique più prestigiose i nuovi ed esclusivi occhiali da sole per l’estate 2013 firmati dalla maison Louis Vuitton.
La nuova collezione di occhiali da sole da uomo di Louis Vuitton prende il nome di Dave e, già dalla prima apparizione sulle passerelle di alta moda menswear, è riuscita ad attirare l’attenzione dei più esigenti, rimanendo davvero incuriositi i clienti Louis Vuitton.
Mai come stavolta, infatti, la storica maison francese ha pensato più che allo stile, in questo caso minimal ed essenziale, alla comodità di utilizzo, con un design molto semplice ma che sa fare il suo meglio anche nelle situazioni ”più complicate”.
Per ciò che concerne i materiali invece, i nuovi ochiali da sole Louis Vuitton Dave per l’estate 2013 sono principalmente caratterizzati da una leggera montatura in plastica con un comodo flet in metallo. Entrambi gli elementi, inoltre, sono intercambiabili e disponibili in diverse colorazioni, grazie alle lenti rimovibili specchiate e di grande qualità in grado di garantire una protezione UV al 100%.

Lamborghini Egoista, nuova concept car omaggio di Walter De Silva

May 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Lamborghini-Egoista

Walter De Silva, designer italiano responsabile dello stile del Gruppo Volkswagen, ha deciso di omaggiare la prestigiosa casa automobilistica Lamborghini in occasione della celebrazione dei suoi 50 anni.
Per farlo ha presentato il progetto di una nuova Concept Car, denominataEgoista e interamente ispirata dal mondo dell’aviazione, con soluzioni tecniche davvero uniche.
Basti pensare che, il pilota, per uscire fuori dalla Lamborghini Egoista, deve per via dello spazio disponibile smontare il volante e riporlo nella plancia strumenti in un apposito cassetto, in stile Top Gun.
E così, la ciliegina sulla torta per i 50 anni di casa Lamborghini, è riuscita a stupire il mondo delle supercar, tenendo conto soprattutto del propulsore: il potente V10 da 5,2 litri della Lamborghini Gallardo che, a causa delle dimensioni e del peso contenuto della Egoista, riesce in questo caso ad assicurare delle prestazioni da record.
Restiamo in attesa dei primi test di questa nuova opera d’arte automobilistica che porta la firma del talentuoso Walter De Silva.

Vicem 46 Vulcan, world class quality second to none by Vicem Yachts

VICEM 46 METRES “MY VULCAN” ON WATER
VULCAN LINE FROM VICEM YACHTS WORLD CLASS QUALITY SECOND TO NONE
The impressive Vicem Vulcan 46 metres M/Y Vulcan is now on water. This is the most challenging project for the world famous Turkish arriving to megayacht production for the first time since 2010. Vicem is enlarging its horizons beyond mahogany construction into high-tech composite construction  with three  new sleek, fast yachts, including a 46m/151’ , 35m/118’  and 32m/105’  for its Vulcan Line. V46 metres Vulcan (ex Caprice V) was launched in July 2012 and V32 metres Bronko I was launched in November 2012. V35 metres will be launched soon in first semester 2013.
In order to continue with speeds in the 20 plus knots range, Vicem decided on Cored Fiberglass construction for this series. The first step was joining forces with Dutch naval architect/designer Frank Mulder  who has designed many well known fast mega-yachts worldwide. To utilize the state of the art in fiberglass yacht construction, Mulder specified Core-Cell  and Epoxy resin for the entire structure .
Core-Cell has the best characteristics of any core material for “off gassing”, insuring a finished hull and superstructure that can be painted in any color. The hull and superstructure are also post-cured with large heat blankets after lamination , ensuring a fair and smooth appearance with any color.
“We want a reputation as a builder of light, beautiful and fast hulls ” says Sebahattin Hafizoglu, Vicem Yachts Founder – Chairman of the Board of Directors . “Vicem is entering the super-yacht segment with serious ambitions  and with no compromise/highest quality building materials and technologies  that compare favorably to Northern Europe Shipyards.” The 46-metre super-yacht has involved Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder and noted interior design firm Art-Line Interiors . “On a boat this size, with such high expectations of performance, the choice of the ‘right’ naval architect was an important one. Nobody has as rich an expertise as Frank Mulder does,” says Hafizoglu. Vicem are so pleased with Mulder’s work that we are also building a 32-metre and a 35-metre to his designs.”
VULCAN 46 meters M/Y VULCAN
With this 46 meter yacht, Vicem decided to enter into the composite mega-yacht segment without making compromises. With the assistance of outstanding design firms such as Frank Mulder  for exterior and naval architecture, and Art Line  for the interiors, Vicem set out to build a 46 meter semi-displacement yacht which is lighter  and faster  than the industry standard, achieving 25 knots  as top speed, while maintaining high-efficiency  cruising and long range capability  of 4,000 Nm @ 12 knots , thus creating an extremely versatile ship. Art-Line Studio  designed the Vulcan 46m interior, bringing a new definition to the word luxury. A 460-ton  yacht, powered by twin 3,650 HP MTU engines , delivers efficient oceancrossing range at reduced speed. Her three decks plus Sun-deck  design provides outstanding elegance for the knowledgeable owner, and six cabins  of thrilled guests. Her signature open atrium design provides 45 feet of unbroken natural lighting, from the very top of the Sun-deck all the way down to the Lower Deck. The main deck’s Master Suite uses every inch of this yachts’ 30 foot beam, and includes a CEO’s office and a private gym. A graceful wraparound entry way leads to an inviting Jacuzzi and an arcing fullwidth head. Farther aft is the galley, a dining area for ten, and a relaxing lounge and a spacious upper lounge area. Its impeccable construction and craftsmanship, thanks to Vicem’s internal team of 400 specialized craftsmen and the RINA/MCA Long Range classifications , make this mega yacht a very serious contender in today’s mega-yacht arena.
“The Vicem 46 Vulcan – refers Gary Smith, Vicem of Americas  – is a fantastic design and is as fast as she is beautiful. The yacht design is a build with absolutely no compromises and only the best materials are used. The first completed vessels are simply a work of art! We are excited to represent Vicem’s entry into the mega-yacht world. The Vulcan line is quickly becoming recognized as an industry leader and we are proud to be part of the team.
THE VULCAN SERIES FROM VICEM
A world class, fast, light yacht for charter or private use, the Vulcan Series adds long range capabilities for ocean voyages together with an outstanding  and durable low maintenance exterior . Due to the latest design and construction techniques, interior volume has been increased  when compared to many other yachts in the same size range. Interiors are tailored to client requests  and can be fully integrated with exterior colors, styling and finishes  due to Vicem’s “total customization” attitude and superior construction techniques which allow finishing in dark colors and/or metallic painting. The Vulcan Line yachts are built in a state-of-the-art facility in Antalya , Turkey. Composite materials, applied with resin and sandwich techniques , are chosen to achieve the best possible strength-to-weight ratios.
All Vicem plants are clean, pleasant factories without unhealthy vapors  that exist in other yacht building factories that use cheaper polyester resins that are loaded with unhealthy styrene. Even the Vicem Classic and Cruiser lines utilize the more expensive and sophisticated epoxy resins in construction.
Integral tank construction  was also introduced with the new Vulcan series, which provides more internal room for accommodations and the ability to carry more fuel for oceangoing trips at lower speed. Frank Mulder designed fast hulls for this Vicem Vulcan series with a fine entry for rough sea conditions that are also very fuel efficient at slow displacement speeds . RINA and/or MCA compliance and certification is always available on any Vicem Yachts. On the Vulcan series RINA  and MCA  are part of the project, which brings Vicem to a new level for offshore cruising and chartering.
