    Η Longines καλωσορίζει την Jennifer Lawrence, τη νέα της πρέσβειρα κομψότητας

    Η ελβετική εταιρεία ωρολογοποιίας Longines μόλις ανακοίνωσε ότι η βραβευμένη με Όσκαρ ηθοποιός Jennifer Lawrence είναι η νέα πρέσβειρα κομψότητας της μάρκας. Μέσα από μια εκπληκτική ποικιλία ρόλων, η Jennifer Lawrence έχει κατακτήσει τις υψηλότερες κορυφές της βιομηχανίας της, ενώ προσφέρει μια ανανεωμένη προοπτική σε ό,τι κάνει. Αυτό αποδεικνύεται από τη σταθερή δέσμευσή της σε σημαντικούς κοινωνικούς αγώνες. Η Jennifer, μια τολμηρή, δυναμική γυναίκα, είναι η ιδανική προσθήκη στην οικογένεια Longines. Η Jennifer Lawrence είναι μια από τις πιο γοητευτικές ηθοποιούς παγκοσμίως. Kαθιερώθηκε ως παγκόσμια σταρ υποδυόμενη την έφηβη ηρωίδα Katniss Everdeen στην ταινία 'Αγώνες Πείνας' το 2012. Έκτοτε, έχει διαγράψει μια σπουδαία πορεία, κερδίζοντας ένα βραβείο Όσκαρ και τρεις επιπλέον υποψηφιότητες, ένα BAFTA, δύο βραβεία του Σωματείου Ηθοποιών και τρεις Χρυσές Σφαίρες. Έχει επίσης συμπεριληφθεί στον κατάλογο του περιοδικού Time με τις 100 προσωπικότητες με τη μεγαλύτερη επιρροή παγκοσμίως. Ο Matthias Breschan, Διευθύνων Σύμβουλος της Longines, δηλώνει ενθουσιασμένος με την ένταξη της ηθοποιού στο εντυπωσιακό ρόστερ των πρεσβευτών κομψότητας της μάρκας. Όπως χαρακτηριστικά αναφέρει: «Η Jennifer έχει την ικανότητα να δίνει πειστικά πνοή και αυθεντικότητα σε κάθε χαρακτήρα που υποδύεται. Εκτός οθόνης, αυτό μεταφράζεται σε μια κομψότητα που είναι τόσο φυσική όσο και οικεία. Αποτελεί πηγή έμπνευσης για τα νέα κορίτσια και γυναίκες όλων των ηλικιών και είμαστε υπερήφανοι που την καλωσορίζουμε στην οικογένεια της Longines». Η Lawrence ανυπομονεί επίσης να ξεκινήσει τη συνεργασία της με τη Longines. Όπως η ίδια δηλώνει: «Η Longines στηρίζεται σε μια παρακαταθήκη που βασίζεται στην καινοτομία και την ποιότητα, την οποία έχουν εμπιστευτεί ορισμένοι από τους σημαντικότερους πρωτοπόρους της ιστορίας. Νιώθω μεγάλη χαρά που θα ενταχθώ στην οικογένεια της Longines και ανυπομονώ να ξεκινήσουμε τη μακροπρόθεσμη συνεργασία μας!» Παρά το γεγονός ότι οι ερμηνείες της στους 'Αγώνες Πείνας' και σε σύγχρονα αριστουργήματα όπως οι ταινίες 'Οδηγός Αισιοδοξίας' και 'Οδηγός Διαπλοκής' την έχουν καθιερώσει στο ευρύ κοινό, η Lawrence δεν είναι απλά άλλη μια κινηματογραφική σταρ. Το 2018 ίδρυσε τη δική της εταιρεία παραγωγής, Excellent Cadaver, μέσα από την οποία ανέλαβε την παραγωγή της τελευταίας της ταινίας, Causeway, ενώ εκτός οθόνης, η Lawrence είναι μια ένθερμη υποστηρικτής της ισότητας των φύλων και είναι μέλος του διοικητικού συμβουλίου της <a href="https://represent.us/" style=« text-decoration:none;">Represent.us</a>, μιας μη κομματικής οργάνωσης που δραστηριοποιείται σε εθνικό επίπεδο για την υιοθέτηση ισχυρής νομοθεσίας κατά της διαφθοράς. Συμπληρώνοντας, η Lawrence λέει: «Η Longines είναι εδώ και πολλά χρόνια ταυτισμένη με τη διαχρονική κομψότητα, η οποία για μένα μπορεί να οριστεί ως μια ήρεμη δύναμη που συνοδεύεται από χάρη και αυτοπεποίθηση. Και ως γέννημα θρέμμα του Κεντάκι, η Longines ήταν πάντοτε συνδεδεμένη με τον αγώνα του Κεντάκι Ντέρμπι και την ενσάρκωση της παράδοσης». Χάρη στη μοναδική της αντίληψη για την κομψότητα, την ενσυναίσθηση και τη συμπόνια της καθώς και την ικανότητά της να ενσαρκώνει οποιονδήποτε ρόλο - τόσο εντός όσο και εκτός οθόνης - με αναζωογονητική ειλικρίνεια και αυθεντικότητα, η Jennifer Lawrence είναι μια πρέσβειρα κομψότητας της Longines που αποτελεί τόσο μια πηγή έμπνευσης όσο και ένα πρότυπο. Η μάρκα είναι υπερήφανη που καλωσορίζει αυτή τη σπουδαία γυναίκα στην οικογένειά της.

    Josh Kerr’s 2022 season got off to a brilliant start. The British middle-distance runner, who was born in Edinburgh, set a new British and European indoor mile record in February in Boston. But the accomplishment was even more impressive: With his time of 3:48.87, he not only broke the European mile record, set in 1983, he also set a British 1500m record en route to the finish line. Longines is delighted to announce that this talented runner is part of its Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team and looks forward to timing every breathtaking step in Birmingham. At home on the Commonwealth Games stage Josh Kerr has been distinguishing himself on middle-distance tracks since 2015, when he won gold at the European Junior Championships and he has moved from strength to strength, capturing a bronze medal in Tokyo in the summer of 2021 in a field that included the world’s best runners. While best known for his successes in 1500 metre and one-mile events, the Edinburgh native also competes at the 800-metre, 3000-metre and 5000 metre distances. Although Josh now trains in Seattle, Washington (USA), he is looking forward to representing Great Britain and Scotland at the World Championships and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

    Peter Bol, Australian 800-metre sensation, Joins the Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team

    Longines is excited to announce that Peter Bol, the brilliant Australian middle-distance runner, has joined its 2022 Commonwealth Games Team. A specialist in 800-metre races, Peter already holds the national record in this discipline and distinguished himself on the tracks in Rio and Tokyo. But his ambitions go far beyond what he has already accomplished. We’re pleased to introduce you to an extraordinary competitor.  Overcoming adversity Peter Bol has a bold ambition: he aims to become the greatest 800-metre runner in the world. And no one who has seen the new member of the Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team doubts that he can achieve that goal. Peter’s story is compelling. As a child, he relocated with his family from Sudan to Australia. At school in Perth, he was a standout basketball player but he was also required to participate in school athletics. He regularly won his races and was ultimately convinced by his teachers to swap his basketball kit for track shoes. He won the junior men’s 800-metre event in 2015 and never looked back. Peter looks forward to adding to his legacy – and continuing his relentless pursuit of his goal – in Birmingham in August. "Get to know the person instead of the assumptions" Peter Bol is one of those rare sporting talents who has lit a fire that burns beyond the track, field or arena of his achievements. His successes have fired the imaginations of his fellow Australians, who look forward to seeing what new barriers he breaks and what milestones he achieves next. Peter is articulate about what it means to have moved to a country and to be representing it on the world’s most prestigious sporting stages. He says, "I don't think people should be seen as a refugee or a migrant or something like that . . . get to know the person instead of the assumptions." Peter Bol has been defying stereotypes, overcoming obstacles and breaking records for years, a trend that continued at the Diamond League event in Paris in June, where he set a new personal best time of 1:44 in the 800-metre run, breaking his own Australian National Record. And the best is yet to come!
