Vertu and Italia Independent, the start of a beautiful collaboration

Vertu Constellation Lapo 3 quarter ruby white
Vertu and creative brand Italia Independent announce the launch of a unique touchscreen handset, “Constellation Blue”. 

For Constellation Blue, Vertu introduces a number of innovative performance materials to the original Constellation touch, which have never been used before by Vertu. The handsets have been handcrafted from polished ultra-hard blue pvd stainless steel, blue carbon fibre composite, blue metallic sapphire crystal key as well as two-tone blue rubberised leather.  Each handset from the Constellation Blue is built by just one craftsman in Vertu’s headquarters in England.

A truly co-developed product, the collection is inspired by the purity and simple elegance of the colour blue.  Lapo Elkann, President and Founder of Italia Independent said: “I have a great love and passion for the sea . Blue has been the colour of my life. Using blue as the theme for this unique design collaboration seemed therefore natural to me.” Blue has become the very soul of this product and Vertu has made no compromises in delivering the spirit of Italia Independent to every element of the handset. The result is a unique handset collection reflecting Lapo’s ultimate style and unique personality.

Drum TAO – The Art of Drum

Courtesy of Senatus, I was extended an invitation to Drum TAO Live in Malaysia at Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. The show is proudly bought to Kuala Lumpur by Establish Events.

 After playing to audiences of more than 5 million, in 400 cities in 17 countries that include Switzerland, Denmark, Israel, USA, Australia, Spain, Belgium, UK and Germany, critically-acclaimed Drum Tao exploded onto the KL stage with its eclectic mix of dance and martial arts as the dynamic and innovative Japanese performers beat their Wadaiko Drums.

The two-hour extravaganza featured super human efforts by the 16-strong highly disciplined crew of Japanese Taiko drummers, who spend eight months of the year touring the world, giving it their all in the 500 shows they perform a year.

It was an evening filled with rhythm, beats, melody and extraordinary precision which is inspiring, uplifting and theatrical. The performance is full of emotion and passion, and with an incredible connection to the audiences.

Their skilful drumming is impressive and exhilarating. Mind-blowing martial arts married with mesmerising music, coupled with the musicians’ physical fitness, dynamism and extraordinary synchronicity, make them human rarities. 

Peeps, today (25 Aug 2012) will be the last day for Drum TAO to perform in Malaysia. This is a golden opportunity for you to witness their performance by yourself!
What are you waiting for?
