Correct Shades For Skin Tone

Fair/Pale skin tone

Do you have red, blonde or light brown colored hair with a comparatively fairer skin color that has freckles? Colors that are completely contrasting to your skin will bring out your complexion very well adding some glamour to your sense of dressing. Some of the darker colours like grey, brown, burgundy, bottle green, navy and bolder shades of blue will all work well as these shades contrast with your skin tone.

On the other hand, there are colors which should be avoided in order to mix and match range from beige, khaki, camel, pastel shades. However, you have to check how fair you are and depending on that, you can pick up the colors to make you look appealing and brighter.

Wheatish/Medium skin tone

People with this skin texture are larger in comparison to the first category and are more favorable for the various shades of color in comparison to the first category of the fair skin tone. While most colors will work perfectly fine with a medium skin complexion, but you have to make sure that the colors you choose in your clothing is either darker to your complexion or comparatively lighter. Do not opt for anything that is middle grounded and matchy to your complexion. The colors that you should adopt are the lighter shades of neutrals like beige or the bolder/warmer shades like magenta, navy and more. These were just examples; you can see the colors better and decide for yourself.

When men with medium flesh color try to put up with mauve or tan brown kind of colors; they blend in with the shades and tend to look more like it rather than, looking brighter/contrast. You should stay away from colors like mocha brown, olive green, mustard and many more.

Darker skin tone

These are more like the aspect mentioned above and men with a darker complexion should somewhat follow what the guys with medium skin coloration abide by without any trepidation. Guys with darker skin complexion need not worry about what will suit them and what not; the color palette is just meant for you to explore the best possibilities. Your skin color is compatible with a wide variety of hues and shades in comparison to men with pale or fairer complexion. Colors like jade green, cobalt blue and others will bring out the best in you.

The only color to avoid your skin tint is the color brown (and a few hues of the same). Though even if you love black and white a lot, make sure you sport it seldom, in order to make the most of your skin tone.

The son of an Italian civil servant working for the Italian government in Switzerland, Naldi grew up in Ticino, the Italian speaking southernmost Swiss canton. After completing his studies in business the young Naldi learned German first in Germany and later in the German speaking Switzerland.

His next move was moving to Lausanne where he lived for thirteen years and where his children were born. From there he settled in Zug, central Switzerland. His first serious foray into the world of luxury goods business starts in 1996 in Lausanne where he establishes Pandora Ltd. The aim of the company is to bring ‘Made in Italy’ goods to Switzerland and beyond. The company specialises in fine textiles, accessories and writing instruments. Later on, starting 1999, the company would start producing luxury boxes for the likes of Caran d’Ache, Marlen, Omega or Jacob&Co. Some of the pen brands represented by the company are big names like Aurora, Delta, Marlen, Stipula, Visconti but also Sailor.

In 2008 Naldi and his wife Antonina open Style of Zug. A unique boutiques specialized in fine writing instruments and accessories. Many of the accessories he offers are sold under the name Naldi-Italia.

This special business position and his passion for fine objects allows Naldi to acquire a unique understanding of the luxury pen business. With a keen eye for innovation and taste for well designed objects, Naldi understands that there is a market for a new and innovative pen brand. The Swiss location also offers him a unique angle due to the proximity to high horology. And yes, the sleepy world of fine pens has a thing or two to learn from the dynamic Swiss watchmaking.

All this formative experiences would come together to form Edelberg. The DNA of the brand fuses together a number of different strands: beauty, style and excellence on one side, technology, advanced materials and the Swiss Made badge on the other hand. The most relevant motifs used for finishing are from fashion, textiles, tailoring, watchmaking and sports.

Looking back at the trajectory of Naldi’s life things do fall into place neatly. His love of beautiful things traces back to his childhood and formative years. His Italian background had a decisive influence on his penchant for design and deep sense of style. The Swiss watchmaking connection added the technology and utterly modern take on luxury, whilst his contact with pens through his business has offered the perfect opportunity to bring together and materialize his eclectic experiences.

After years of planning and development the brand came to life in early 2010 under the name Edelberg. The name is a portmanteau made through the fusion of two words. Edelweiss, the national flower of Swizerland and Gutenberg, the inventor of printing press. The denomination subtly encompasses the values of the brand. Beauty, Swiss spirit and innovation.

The distinctive logo of the brand is not an I or an H on a side either. If you look carefully the outside frame contains all the letters of the brand Edelberg. Rather neat.

The brand offers two collections: Sloop and Tachys. Sloop takes its name from a sailing boat with a single mast and a fore-and-aft rig. The shape of the pen is also inspired by the shape of the sailboat. It also has a cool retractable clip. Reflecting Naldi’s textile connection the model has been issued in fabric and animal print. The watchmaking influence has materialized in the use of SuperLuminova (a luminous substance often used in watch dials), the design of the technical clip, but also special collaborations with the watch brand Artya and watch retailer Chronopassion.

Underlining the sportiness of Sloop the collection is issued only as ballpoint. The purity of lines, originality of concept and finish in high performance materials lend Sloop a resolutely modern character. Within the Parthenon of fine pen brands only Porsche Design shares some similarities with Edelberg. However they diverge where Edelberg ceases to be an instrument only and becomes more of a fashion accessory.

The second collection Tachys takes its name from the Greek word for speed. Tachys is a prefix often used in watchmaking for timepieces with Tachymeter function. Furthermore the clip is based on the design of the needle of a speedometer. SuperLuminova and textile prints are also employed for the collection. As opposed to Sloop which comes only as ballpoint, Tachys has a more classic feel to it and comes in rollerball and fountain executions (with titanium nibs).

Reflecting the wider philosophy of Carlo Naldi, Edelberg is more than a luxury pen brand. The brand offers luxury pen boxes, cufflinks, belts, key-rings and even wine! The Edelberg design language runs clearly through all of them.

The brand is very successful with architects, designers, media people, businessmen and collectors too. Interestingly over thirty percent of the customers are ladies. Since March 2015 his son, Samuel, has taken over the helm of the brand as the new CEO.

Iunal Giumali is editor of [], the premiere online source of writing instruments and one of the most original providers of pen related content.

With ten years experience in the luxury market, Iunal has spent over five years in a luxury environment in Harrods, London, working both in the writing instruments and watches departments. Previously he worked as a jewellery buyer for an Instanbul based jeweller.

The magazine is London based but this project is only possible thanks to a small international team of innovative photographers and progressive thinking writers and contributors. We work closely with the best brands to ensure high quality content is delivered to raeders.

As much as we are about luxury pens, we are also about design, art and culture and yes, sub-culture. So, sometimes you might see an unconventional take on our stories.


Look Uniquely In Customized T-Shirts

Apart from choosing from huge collections of prints made available by your service provider, you can actually send your own idea to the printing team so you have a special unique T-shirt made just for you. If you don’t like meeting people wearing the same design that you are wearing, then customizing your T-shirt is the way to go. Here are some of the things you should consider when you decide to make your own T-shirt.

  • The size – The fit of your T-shirt can determine just how good it looks on you. It is one thing to choose the most unique print and quite another to have an ill-fitting T-shirt. Know your body size and type to help you choose the best size to have the print done on. Most online printers cater to all sizes and you will find the ideal size for you. When looking at the size, remember to pay attention to the width and the length of the shirt to make sure it is exactly what you are looking for.
  • The color – The color of your T-shirt can determine your wearing possibilities in terms of matching it up with different other items. Choose a color that brings the best of your natural complexion or skin tone, but at the same time a color that will work well with the type of print you want on the T-shirt. To make your own T-shirt that tells more about your personality and style, you need to have all colors figured out so that you end up achieving the desired look.
  • The fabric – T-shirts are made of different fabrics and you need to make a choice that will do justice to your print. This is considering that printing styles and techniques can come out differently on different fabrics hence you need to ensure that you have the best print for the fabric you have settled for. Cotton t-shirts are some of the easiest to work with and they will remain comfortable even after printing is done. You also should take time to find out what fabrics your printer works with depending on the printing machines and techniques they use to bring your idea into reality.
  • The print size and location – When making your T-shirt, you need to be sure of which areas of the T-shirt you want the print on and how big it should be. To remain stylish, try and balance out the print making it visible but not shouting and irritating to the eyes.

Look Back at Western Clothing

With slight individual and regional differences, the basic Old West cowboy attire the wide-brimmed hat, an ordinary shirt worn beneath a cowboy vest or waistcoat, the cotton or wool trousers, covered halfway with the leather chaps, the distinct tall boots with spurs, and the oversized silk handkerchief worn around the neck.

As interesting as the ensemble may appear, the cowboy clothes lend them a hand on their ranch work, and kept them protected from the environment.

The attire is a mélange of stylistic and cultural traditions that crossed the Western boundaries. The leather drew inspiration from the American Indians, and the early European adventurers quickly adopted the ways. However, the cowboys found little use of Indian traditions. They instead took upon the use of leather for belts, boots, and gloves. Victorian styling worked its way into the elements of the basic cowboy garb only as long as it was practical. That limited it to the buttoned up ethos for the men.

While the men were at it the ladies never stayed far behind in fashion. The 1890’s saw the western women wearing typical Victorian dresses – it was high fashion then! Cowgirls, as the Wild West called had fine riding and trick roping skills. Another thing they put men to shame with was their expert marksmanship. Talk about girl power!

Like the men, the women in the West spent a considerable part of their day in the ranch, which required practical clothing. Many out of necessity began wearing clothes similar to ones worn by their husbands, fathers, and brothers. Some areas witnessed women wearing divided skirts to aide their ranch work and riding. With the advent of the Wild West in the 1900s, splits skirts became increasingly common among western women – and why not? They liberated them to compete with the men in numerous events.

In 1910 it was showgirls like Annie Oakley, Calamity Jane, and others from the Wild West paving the future of cowgirls’ fashion. It is important to note, that for most part the cowboys, and the cowgirls stuck to practicality in their choice of clothes, which is why, subsequent eras saw the Old West population buying, designing, or making clothes specific to their requirements.
