Video: In summer 2009, the Paris High Jewelry House Boucheron, founded in 1858, presented the necklace 'Julia' designed by Marc Newson.
The name 'Julia' is the second name of the French mathematician Gaston Julia who discovered the formula for the 'Julia set', an elaborated form of set theory and fractal geometry. Probably the same idea is behind the galaxy on the jacket too: each part is a reduced-size copy of the whole.

Lee Rider 1955 '101-Z', SS2010, are designed after the original jeans that were worn by James Dean in the Oscar-awarded role 'Jett Rink' in 'Giants' in 1955. In the 50ies, jeans become 'must haves' of the youth culture not at least because of iconic actors like James Dean.
