evian® And Designer Alexander Wang Release 2016 Limited Edition Bottle

Today, evian and New York-based fashion designer Alexander Wang unveil the 2016 evian Limited Edition bottle. Wang’s design features his signature bar code logo on two contrasting bottles, one black and one white. The purity of evian water is emphasized through clean graphics and highlighted by the play of the lines on the bottles. The 2016 evian x Alexander Wang Limited Edition Bottle will be available in 75cl glass bottles at evian.com and retailers worldwide beginning November 2015.
Since 2008, evian has worked with some of the world’s most prestigious designers to create a limited edition bottle. Through the creative vision of artists such as Diane von Furstenberg, Paul Smith, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Elie Saab and KENZO, each collaboration is a renewed celebration of purity and playfulness and a reinterpretation of evian’s spirit through art and design.

Wang applies the barcode logo in different ways and throughout different collections and seasons. Inspired by the unique purity of evian water, Wang put it into new context on its iconic glass bottle. The design is clean, simple and, at the same time, interacts with the dynamic reflections of water as a natural element.
In my approach to design, I have always had an un-precious outlook, focusing on the pieces that people wear every day, then tweaking them and elevating them to give a distinct point of view,” said Wang.  “evian water is something that is truly ‘every day’ yet precious by design. We used linear and strong graphics to give the brand’s iconic bottle our sensibility, and to create a new take on it.”
The architectural and minimalistic approach Alexander Wang brings to his creations really caught our attention,” said Olga Osminkina-Jones, Vice President of Marketing for Danone Waters of America. “His creations are iconic yet extremely inclusive and relevant today, pure interpretation of the modern audience values. The black and white color contrast, that Alexander Wang chose, makes a statement about evian purity in a very contemporary way.”

Fall Travel: Door County Celebrates Fall with Culinary Events, Packages, Color Updates

Culinary travelers will find a cornucopia of attractions in Door County this fall. From now through to October 25, the county will spotlight those attractions with the “So Delicious, So Door County” promotion, a multi-faceted celebration of the harvest season held up and down Wisconsin’s scenic 70-mile peninsula.

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Peninsula State Park small

Door County located in the northeast corner of Wisconsin. Surrounded by Lake Michigan, it is one of the top leisure travel destinations in America. Door County features 300 miles of shoreline, 34 named islands, 11 lighthouses and 5 state parks. It is known for its natural beauty, artistic offerings, outdoor recreation and local cuisine and offers scenic seaside experiences in the heart of the Midwest.

Among the highlights of this celebration will be the 2nd annual Door County Restaurant Week. Held Sept. 20-26, it will offer visitors a variety of special prix fixe meals, including specially designed breakfasts, two-course lunches and three-course dinners at more than a dozen of the county’s best restaurants. Participating restaurants and their menus can be found on a special Door County Restaurant Week web page at http://www.doorcounty.com/seasonal-promotions.

Other visitor opportunities include wine sampling at eight different wineries along the Door County Wine Trail; cooking classes; sampling freshly caught smoked fish and locally grown cherries, apples and other produce; or pick-your-own apples at numerous county orchards. The Door County Visitor Bureau has compiled a list of additional fall activities for visitors on its website.

One must-see culinary experience is the Door County Fish Boil. Served by a number of restaurants, this popular meal features locally caught Lake Michigan whitefish, potatoes and onions cooked outdoors in a large kettle of salted water over a roaring wood fire. As the meal is nearing readiness, kerosene is tossed into the fire beneath the pot, catalyzing the flames into a picturesque “boil over” finale. The meal is traditionally finished off with a slice of Door County’s iconic tart cherry pie, made with locally grown cherries.

The autumnal appeal of Door County isn’t just limited to foodies, however; both art lovers and outdoors-types are drawn to the peninsula in September and October. The county not only boasts more than 100 art galleries and studios, but live music performances and award-winning professional theater productions take place throughout the fall season. Hikers, bikers and photographers are drawn to the region’s five state parks, 11 lighthouses and other natural and maritime attractions – all of which are framed by brilliant fall colors. Weekly fall color updates will once again be posted on the Door County Visitor Bureau website (http://www.doorcounty.com), along with seasonal lodging package specials.

Miz Mooz Shoe Collection Offers Fashion-Forward Take On Fall

Miz Mooz Translates Trends Into Trademark ‘Walkable’ Fashion

Based in Manhattan—where women want the latest looks but also need footwear that stands up to tough city streets—Miz Mooz has evolved a style that’s instantly recognizable. “Overall, the fall collection goes from very edgy to fairly classic,” says Dan Kenigsberg, President of Infinity Shoes, the world’s largest retailer of the Miz Mooz brand, “but every single shoe or boot is ‘walkable’ and easy to wear.”

Although that may mean leaving out fads like six-inch heels or over-the-knee boots—”just not our girl” says Kenigsberg—the Fall 2015 Shoe Collection from Miz Mooz makes some strong style statements; leading that list:

Silhouettes: This fall, Mary Janes dominate dress shoe offerings. “You’ll see everything from sweet, classic Mary Janes like ‘Miz Mooz Elaine‘,” says Kenigsberg, “to higher heels and fashion-forward interpretations like ‘Miz Mooz Natalia‘.” Also coming on strong: Chelsea boots, especially in styles that play with wider elastic gussets like ‘Miz Mooz Newport‘, ‘Miz Mooz Lucia’, and ‘Miz Mooz Gemini‘.

Colors: Ochre and gold are definitely the trendiest shoe shades, but you’ll also notice steely blues and grays worn as the new neutrals. “Blue-grays are basics,” says Kenigsberg, “and, of course, our customers always love red so we’ve added more burgundy and wine.

Heels: This fall, heels are slightly higher—three inches on styles like ‘Miz Mooz Roselle‘ and ‘Miz Mooz Carissa’—but always thick enough to be supportive and streetworthy. “They’re stacked heels, not spindly or spiky,” says Kenigsberg, “the construction makes all the difference.”

Leathers: Miz Mooz customers prize vegetable-tanned leather precisely because it’s quirky and irregular. “Our customers love that artisanal look and softness,” explains Kenigsberg, “and they’ve become more environmentally conscious.” Additionally, most Miz Mooz styles play up the differences with so much hand burnishing that the leather often looks and feels as if it’s already broken in.

His other predictions: “This season, the Miz Mooz girl will be wearing leather sneakers like ‘Miz Mooz Pericles’ where she might have worn flats… and after the cold weather we’ve been seeing for the last two years, riding boots ‘Miz Mooz Aden’, ‘Miz Mooz Alton’, and ‘Miz Mooz Archer’ will be stronger than ever.
