14 designers whose fashion takes us to the moon and back

Fifty years ago, on 20 July 1969, Apollo 11 became the first crewed mission to land on Earth’s only permanent satellite – Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set foot on a surface no human had reached before. It was an epoch-making moment watched by an estimated 600 million people, crowning a decade in which, since the launch of Sputnik 1 by Russia in 1957, the West and the Soviet Union had vied to be the first to reach this most sought-after destination. The Cold War’s space race had far-reaching consequences, not only inspiring fervent conversation and uncertainty about our relationship with the cosmos, but also hugely influencing cultural output.  For fashion designers André Courrèges, Paco Rabanne and Pierre Cardin, it meant devising a whole new way to dress. These designers and others built a lasting legacy, one that continues today. Following the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, Vogue looks back over half a century of design inspired by constellations, astronauts, aliens and everything else in the great unknown.  André Courrèges Partly credited with inventing the miniskirt (it’s a two-way tie between him and Mary Quant), designer André Courrèges was at the forefront of fa...

You’ve probably been taught that before starting a workout, you should warm up by rolling out

You’ve probably been taught that before starting a workout, you should warm up by rolling out and doing a few dynamic exercises, and then jump into your workout. I hate to break it to you, but there’s an important piece that’s being left out of your warmup: activating your core. You’ve probably heard “activate your core” hundreds of times in yoga and HIIT classes alike. Your instructors aren’t just telling you to do this to impress you. They’re saying it because our abdominal muscles play an integral role in movements like getting out of bed, walking, running, and picking things up. Continue reading to find out more about the anatomy of the core and why it’s important to activate your abdominal muscles before working out. Your abdominal muscles are made up of your external obliques, internal obliques, transversus abdominis, and rectus abdominis. These muscles form a wall protecting your internal organs and help support the muscles of your spine, allowing you to maintain an erect posture. Your oblique muscles are responsible for side flexion and rotation of your torso, whereas your transverse abdominis muscles are responsible ...

Courtesy photoRigging your anchor a certain way can help make it easier to retrieve if it gets stuck in the rocks below the water. We had pulled up into the Ipswich River and parked the boat just to the right of the ledges along the shore at the head of Crane Beach. The Danforth anchor was dropped down into the outgoing current. The tide had just turned, so it was not yet really ripping. I payed out about 15 feet of chain and then about a hundred feet of line. I gave it a tug and the anchor held. When it was time to leave, we couldn’t get the anchor out of the boulders into which it had settled. Any other year we would have lost the anchor. But due to the new way we attached the chain to the anchor, it popped out of the hole it was in and came easily to the boat. Rigging it was easy but it did take a little time. The Danforth fluke anchor was invented by Richard Danforth in the 1940s. A West Coast sailor, he was looking for a more stable, easy-to-store, lightweight anchor that would hold in the sand and mud. His invention has several parts. The long ...

California is considering a ban on plastic hotel toiletries

After a string of bans on plastic items over the last few years, are single-use hotel toiletries next to go? In California, a proposed bill that would ban small plastic bottles containing personal care products in hotels is currently making its way through the state legislature. If passed, the bill would come into effect as early as 2023 for hotels with 50 rooms or more. Lodging establishments with less than 50 rooms would have until 2024 to fully replace small plastic toiletries. This is not an entirely new concept in the hotel industry. Last year, InterContinental Hotels Group and Marriott International both began to replace single-use plastic toiletries with larger pump containers that fasten to the wall. Marriott rolled out these changes in as many as 450 properties under its management and specifically focused on properties that cater to business travelers. The effort to minimize single-use plastics has significantly increased over the last few years with California leading the charge. In 2014, California became the first state to enact a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags at large retail stores. They also imposed a ten-cent minimum charge on recycled paper bags and ...

A solar-powered car that can supposedly travel 725km on a single charge has been unveiled by

A solar-powered car that can supposedly travel 725km on a single charge has been unveiled by a Dutch start-up. Lightyear, which was founded in 2016, described its vehicle as a “new era of driving” and said the prototype vehicle took around two years to build. Dubbed Lightyear One, the vehicle has been engineered with efficiency in mind to get as long a range as possible out of the battery. The body is constructed mainly from aluminium and carbon fibre materials to keep weight down, while the body has been fine-tuned to maximise aerodynamics and reduce drag. Its bonnet and roof are comprised of solar cells that charge the inbuilt battery and is expected to be delivered in 2021, with a reservation fee of €119,000 (£106,000). Lex Hoefsloot, CEO and co-founder of Lightyear said: “Since new technology has a high unit cost, we have to start in an exclusive market. “The next models we plan to develop will have a significantly lower purchase price. In addition, future models will be provided to autonomous and shared car fleets, so the purchase price can be divided amongst a large group of users. “Combined with the low operating costs of the vehicle, we aim to provide premium mobility f...

An inescapable theme at this year’s Hannover Fair was the emergence of 5G as potential game-changer

An inescapable theme at this year’s Hannover Fair was the emergence of 5G as potential game-changer for industrial communications. The high-speed, low-latency technology could oust traditional signal wiring in many applications – although widespread adoption still seems several years away. The 2019 Hannover Fair drew 215,000 visitors to the Northern German city in April – a slight increase on last year’s total. The event is attracting increasing interest from outside Germany, with nearly 40% of the visitors coming from abroad – a significant increase on the 30% at the 2018 event. China once again contributed the largest number of foreign delegates with 7,200 of its citizens travelling half-way around the world to be at Hannover, followed by the Netherlands (5,900), Italy (3,400) and the US (3,400). There were around 6,500 exhibitors for them to see (up from 5,800 in 2018). In terms of technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, virtual/augmented and machine learning were widespread themes, with the show’s organisers estimating that there were more than 500 demonstrations of the use of AI in manufacturing. Perhaps the biggest buzz was around the potential for high-spee...

Best cold brew coffee makers for making cold brew at home

Not to be confused with regular iced coffee, which is just essentially hot coffee that’s been chilled, cold brew coffee stays cool from beginning to end of the brew process. It’s made by soaking coffee beans in cold or room temperature water for up to 24 hours, then filtering out the grounds.  Why wait that long when you can just pick up an iced coffee at your local coffee shop? Well, for one, cold brew coffee actually comes with a few health benefits, including the fact that it’s less acidic, making it easier on your stomach and teeth. Apart from that, those store-bought iced coffees— and especially the cold brews — can get pricey and definitely add up if you’re getting them all the time.  Since your home hot coffee maker has been saving you all those trips to the coffee shop this year, it wouldn’t make sense to start coughing up $4 every morning just because it’s cold brew season. After all, you’ve got a lot of summer weekend trips planned and an extra $20 per week would look a lot better going toward a new bathing suit rather than some overpriced coffee. Since we understand, we scoured our beloved friend the internet in search of the ...

The deal would allow Changyu’s four premium wines from its Ningxia-based winery (Château Changyu Moser XV) to be distributed through ASC Fine Wines’ on-trade channel, leveraging the wine importer’s long standing HORECA network particularly with Michelin-starred restaurants and top hotels. Additionally, Changyu in turn will help distribute selected wines represented by ASC Fine Wines via Changyu’s existing national sales channels, according to Shibuya. This marks ASC’s second push on domestically produced Chinese wines alongside its partnership with China’s leading family-owned winery Grace Vineyard. Opened in 2012, the European-styleChâteau Changyu Moser XV winery ...
