Dallara Stradale revealed – the Italian race car manufacturer’s first road car

The first prototype was presented on 16th November 2016, when Mr. Giampaolo Dallara turned 80 years old. Since then, the road testing activities have begun, with car homologation and production equipment setting. November 16, 2017 – The first model of the Dallara Stradale was handed over to its owner on the day of his birthday. Giampaolo Dallara, a life as an Engineer, went out to drive the street-legal Dallara right from the building in which he started his business activity 45 years ago in Varano de’ Melegari, not far from the house where he was born on November 16, 1936.

Iconic Italian racing car development and manufacturing company Dallara has just revealed details of its first ever self-branded road car – the Dallara Stradale.

Conceived around the notion of rediscovering the real pleasure of driving, the Dallara Stradale is a lightweight, highly customisable sports car utilising the latest racing car technology derived from Dallara’s experience in motorsport. The production of a road car focused on the pleasure of driving has been a long-term career objective for company founder Giampaolo Dallara, a dream now finally realised some 45 years after the company’s birth in 1972.

Like the De Tomaso Guara, the Dallara Stradale in its most simple ‘Barchetta’ form comes without a windscreen and roof, and this time even without doors. Each of these elements are available as options, transforming the Stradale into three other body styles including roadster, targa and coupe form. Weighing 855kg in Barchetta guise, the Stradale makes extensive use of carbonfibre and other composite materials.

Called the Dallara Stradale, this highly customisable sports car is built with 45 years of racing car development behind it.

Powering the Stradale is a 2.3-litre supercharged four-cylinder engine producing 394bhp. Drive is sent to the rear axle via a standard 6-speed manual gearbox but a 6-speed paddleshift semi-automatic option is also available. Track-biased adjustable suspension and more aggressive aerodynamic features are offered as options if owners want a more circuit-orientated set up. The aerodynamic aids give the Stradale the ability to generate forces of up to 2G in cornering.

Responsible for designing and manufacturing racing cars that feature in series like IndyCar and WEC, Dallara has accrued a reputation for being an industry leader on the racetrack. This knowledge has been instilled in to the Stradale according to Dallara, so expectations are high.

After a 12-month testing program on the road, the first Dallara Stradale has been officially handed over to the company founder on his 80th birthday. Priced at €155k, the car isn’t cheap, but with only 600 to be built and a 463bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio, it should have the performance to justify the outlay.

More about the Dallara Stradale soon here on Yakymour. Come into the fast and beautiful world of Dallara.

L’Oréal to buy Mugler and Azzaro from Clarins

loreal-paris

In 1909, Eugène Paul Louis Schueller, a young French chemist of German descent, developed a hair dye formula called Oréale. Schueller formulated and manufactured his own products, which he then decided to sell to Parisian hairdressers. On 31 July 1919, Schueller registered his company, the Société Française de Teintures Inoffensives pour Cheveux (Safe Hair Dye Company of France). The guiding principles of the company, which eventually became L’Oréal, were research and innovation in the field of beauty. In 1920, the company employed three chemists. By 1950, the team was 100 strong; by 1984 was 1,000 and is nearly 82,000 today.

L’Oréal got its start in the hair-colour business, but the company soon branched out into other cleansing and beauty products. L’Oréal currently markets over 500 brands and thousands of individual products in all sectors of the beauty business: hair colour, permanents, hair styling, body and skin care, cleansers, makeup and fragrance. In the years L’Oréal build a large portofolio of brands like: Lancôme, Helena Rubinstein, Biotherm, Kiehl’s, Giorgio Armani Beauté, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, Viktor & Rolf, Cacharel, Maison Margiela and Ralph Lauren Fragrances, to name just a few.

And now L’Oréal is in exclusive negotiations to acquire perfume brands Mugler and Azzaro from Clarins Group, the French beauty giant announced this morning.

The perfume category is at the heart of our global strategy for growth at L’Oréal Luxe. In this context, we would be thrilled to welcome Mugler and Azzaro: these signatures, with a long history in fashion and olfaction, would perfectly complete our portfolio of brands.

Cyril Chapuy, President of L’Oréal Luxe

L’Oréal has not confirmed the financial details of the planned acquisitions, other than that the deal is currently under discussion and subject to approval from regulators.
The purchase is expected to be completed later in the year.
L’Oréal’s prestige perfume has seen strong growth in recent years with the commercial success of Lancôme’s La Vie est Belle (one of the best-selling fragrances in Europe and the US), Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opiumand Giorgio Armani’s Sì Passione and Acqua di Giò Absolu.

The firm’s Luxe Division grew by 10% in 2018. However, the brand owner has seen its mass brands category struggle last year, particularly in Western Europe.

The honor took place at Pride Live’s Stonewall Day, a celebration for the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots which also included a live outdoor concert produced by iHeartMedia New York.

As a social advocacy and community engagement platform for the LGBTQ+ community, Stonewall Day is a day to remember how far we have come and how much work we have left to do to accelerate awareness and eliminate the social intolerance that is profoundly impacting the lives of LGBTQ+ citizens both here and abroad. We are pleased to welcome United Airlines as a Stonewall Ambassador and grateful for their support of Stonewall Day, which brings multi-generational LGBTQ+ communities and allies together to actively advance the Stonewall legacy and the fight for full LGBTQ+ equality.

Vilebrequin-Off-White-Co-Virgil-Abloh-Collection-00.jpg

For his latest collaborative effort, Virgil Abloh pairs Off-White with French swimwear brand Vilebrequin. Together the two offer five new swimsuit styles for Summer 2019.

Fashion designer Virgil Abloh’s label Off-White has always been known for its streetwear-focused pieces (hoodies, oversized T-shirts, sweatshirts and the like), but it has also dabbled in beachwear recently, albeit a relatively small selection seen in its Spring-Summer 2019 line-up for men. To expand the selection further and provide even more options for all, they have decided to team up with renowned swimwear brand Vilebrequin for a 5-piece capsule collection.

Vilebrequin, the French swimwear label is known for its luxurious trunks, cut to be both comfortable and flattering; here, they’re utilized by Off-White as a canvas upon which to express Abloh’s signature visual style.

The collection comes in colours and prints that’s very much in line with Off-White’s brand identity. Take the Moorise Arrows for example, which features the signature arrow logo, coming in either a Black or White version, while the Towel Diagonal comes with black and white stripes all over for a cool touch.

But if you prefer a pop of colour, go for the Moorise ‘Off’ Chartreuse which comes in a bright neon yellow, or opt for a chic floral print as seen in the Moorise All Over Flowers. Each swimsuit features an elasticated waistband, a zippered back pocket, a paperclip zipper pull, and co-branded tags.

The ideal man is a myth. But with L’Homme Idéal Cool, Guerlain has made his fragrance a reality.

Now there is one more, with the release of the refreshing L’Homme Idéal Cool. Created by Thierry Wasser, with help from Guerlain perfumer Delphine Jelk, Guerlain L’Homme Idéal Cool is conceived as a woody scent that allows you to stay refreshed and cool no matter the heat. It is built on a surprising blend of mint, almonds and woody notes.

Guerlain-L'Homme-Idéal-Cool-Visual-02.jpg

Almond, the olfactory seal of the L’Homme Idéal line, is re-orchestrated by the freshness of three ‘waves’ of notes: Bergamot, sweet orange, aniseed and mint for a lively zest with an aromatic and slightly spicy character; heart notes of orange blossom water, aquatic notes and almond give a floral dimension and a long-lasting freshness; and base notes of patchouli, vetiver and ambroxan provide that underlying woody scent. and give character and depth to the scent.

Heading up the new L’Homme Idéal promotional campaign is French model Aurélien Muller, who can be seen striking a pose for each of its five fragrances.
