A bold new beat: Tempus’s Spring Edition stars Louis Vuitton watch ambassador Bradley Cooper

Tempus editor-in-chief Michelle Johnson takes us behind the new issue and the world of Louis Vuitton with Bradley Cooper

Louis Vuitton watch ambassador Bradley Cooper for Louis Vuitton ©️Mario Sorrenti/Louis VuittonWhen it comes to the spring season here at Tempus, the worlds of fashion and watches are always high on our priority list. This is the time of year when London’s fashion scene come to life, with designers spring/summer collections leaping off the runway and onto the streets, and trend predictions soaring falling by the wayside. In perfect complement, we are also treated to the latest mechanical marvels and horological novelties redefining the trends of the slower paced but no less dynamic world of watches, with annual events such as Watches & Wonders a firm fixture in our calendars.

So, it was with great excitement that we were given an exclusive sneak peek at the new Ecole Métiers d’Art collection from Louis Vuitton Watches. These exceptional novelties, masterminded by watchmaker Michel Navas under the direction of Jean Arnault, mark the most daring statement yet in the brands new strategy to transform how Louis Vuitton does watches.

Despite being a leader in the field of fashion timepieces — stylish, high quality and beautifully crafted, created as a sub-section of designer brands — Louis Vuitton has been quietly making waves from its Meyrin-based La Fabrique du Temps manufactory, with a new ambition to elevate its watches to industry-leading status. What began with the redesign of the classic Tambour in 2022 has evolved into an audacious showease of truly artisanal craftsmanship.

In the Spring Edition, we delve into the esteemed brand’s fascinating transformation before sitting down with its watch ambassador, Bradley Cooper, about his passion project Maestro.

Bradley is not the only superstar to be making music this spring season: entrepreneurial singer Beyoncé, riding high on the release of her country album Cowboy Carter, has also found time to launch a stylish new business while afrobeats star Davido chats to Tempus about his global reach. Elsewhere, stylist to the stars Sara Parker Bowles shares the power of personal style — and how to curate a timeless capsule wardrobe — and we head to Aynho Park to explore the majestic new interior design gallery by RH England.

We also find out why the UK’s restaurants are at the forefront of good taste when it comes to seasonal fine dining, get to grips with the trailblazing “mutant” supercars heading off road and take a dip in the yachting world for the best of the season’s new launches.

Enjoy the issue.
