The Pegase: The Pegase is a superbly functional rolling suitcase, which features several attractive advantages. It rolls, saving the strain of carrying heavy luggage. It is structured, protecting all the items inside. It has garment cover to hang a suit.

Tip #1: Opening the suitcase
For efficient packing, the first trick is to lay out everything needed for the trip in order to ensure that nothing gets forgotten and avoid having to repack. Open the suitcase, remove the garment cover and lift the clothing protection flaps out to the sides.

Tip #2: Heavy items – Pouch 1
The trick is to optimal packing is to place the heavy objects at the bottom of the suitcase. Start with the toiletries bag for example, which is generally quite heavy. For rolling luggage, it is important to remember to place the heavy objects towards the wheels.

Then place heavy items such as the cosmetics pouch in the bottom of the suitcase. Bear in mind that toiletries must not surpass 100 mls, therefore travel-size cosmetics are preferable.

Tip #3: Between the rails
The space around the two rails at the back of the Pegase can be used to optimize packing. Rolled up clothes such as jeans, t-shirts and knits fit nicely between the rails.

Tip #4: Curved Area
The space between the rolled-up items and toiletry kits is a perfect place for shoes, as there is a little curve for them to sit perfectly.

Put the shoes in separate felt bags, and then place them in the curved area, one on each side. Shoe trees or tissue paper can be used to protect the shoe; otherwise the space inside the shoe can be used for additional items, such as belts, accessories, and socks.

Tip #5: Small items
Accessories are generally rolled up and placed in a corner of the luggage in order to save space, however it is preferential for ties to be placed in a tie case which ensures the best protection for them.

Belts can be rolled up, and multiple belts can be rolled up very tight inside each other. Additional space in the corners is perfect for small items such as a tie case, rolled-up belts, a scarf and even chargers or other items.

Place items such as city guides against the rails so the structure of the suitcase as well as the rolled items around them help to protect them during the journey.

Accessories can also alternatively lay flat amongst the layers of clothing, as this helps to prevent the clothes from moving.

Items requiring additional security checks, for example a laptop, should be placed near the top to facilitate access.

Remaining small items such as sunglasses, hat, or gloves can be simply placed the top of the suitcase, at the handle end as they are light.

Tip #6: On The Top
Shirts can then be placed on the top. They can either be interlaced or separate in plastic bags. Shirts collars are to be unfolded in order to avoid additional creases.

Some additional space may remain for an extra knit, which can either be rolled up and put in a corner or placed flat. Flattening out the surface helps maximize space.

Tip #7: Garment Bag
The last item to be packed in the Pegase is the business suit. Place the pants on the hanger using the method to prevent them from slipping. Then simply add the jacket onto the hanger. Place the business suit in the garment cover, fold it over and then carefully place it on the top of the suitcase.

Chanel: The Art Of Beautiful Watchmaking

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGES: CHANEL

Having been tasked with the task of explaining the origins of Chanel watches wasn’t going to be an easy one, especially with a timeline that has spanned almost 30 years since its inception in 1987. Think Chanel watches and the first thing that will pop to mind is probably the J12 (which incidentally is one of their most successful watches to date and a favourite amongst both men and women).

The other one that would instantly come to mind would probably be that rectangular one, which has the same shape as the bevelled stopper on Chanel’s No.5. Yes, that would be the Premiere you’re thinking about.

That’s pretty much it, right? No.

If there’s something that’s always constant in Chanel today, it’s that drive to to continually innovate in whatever they do, from 3D-printed dresses (F/W15 Haute Couture) to skin moisturisers made with only 10 ingredients (La Solution 10). It’s the same with their timepieces, manufactured at their facility Manufacture d’Habillage Horloger G&F Châtelain in Switzerland’s La Chaux-de-Fonds, a city that’s synonymous with fine watchmaking.

And that’s not all. Chanel also works closely with master-watchmakers Renaud & Papi(APRP SA), the advanced research and development branch of Audemars Piguet. In other words, Chanel has proven that besides being big on form (and that we already all know and love), they are also serious about function, ie, what goes on inside the watch and winning the 12th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève for best ladies’ watch in 2012 for the Premiere Flying Tourbillon is indeed recognition for that. Something else that I didn’t know before, at Chanel their timepieces are first designed with a specific style and movement in mind, and once the ‘outside’ has been decided, they then proceed on with the insides, even investing heavily in R&D just to ensure it works before form and function come beautifully together in the timepiece.

Accomplishments and accolades aside though, their watches represent Chanel’s vision of time, one that’s closely aligned to Coco Chanel’s own personal philosophy of always ‘living the moment’ and experiencing each nuance of the here and the now.

Which was something I only truly understood when I flew to Switzerland for #BaselWorld recently. Standing alone in its own pavilion amongst hundreds of watch exhibitors spread over many halls, it was clearly a sight to behold, one that encompassed all the codes that Gabrielle Chanel loved dearly.

The watches on display (which will be launched over the course of the year) were pieces that were created to carry on that ethos; one of creating timepieces for every woman, one that’s focused on beautiful watchmaking and most importantly, allowing you to, like Gabrielle Chanel, savour each instant as it happens in the here and now. And so begins my journey into a world that while isn’t completely new to me, I still have much to appreciate, learn and understand, and it’s a year-long journey that I hope you will take with me.
