Marc Alary Jewelry: Le Auteur

By Sharon Parella & Joseph Marano

Marc Alary is a French-born, New York-based jewelry designer who, since launching his first collection in November 2009, has created exquisite collections using precious metals and precious stones. His work is based on his unique and very personal visions of animals in motion and of nature, and each remarkable elephant, monkey, zebra, panther, insect and leaf seems to be part of a story being narrated by Mr. Alary himself. Mr. Alary's creations are elegant, and yet still definitively relatable and independent in a manner which is akin to the auteurism of La Nouvelle Vague filmmakers of the 1960s.

On imprinting his unique perspective and personal storytelling through his pieces, Mr. Alary says that "I want people to see my pieces as being alive and created from memories borrowed from childhood ... I want people to imagine something." His approach suggests that the buyers of his jewelry can take his story and make it their own, thus keeping the fictive tale of each piece alive forever. It was Francois Truffaut who famously said that "An actor is never so great as when he reminds you of an animal – falling like a cat, lying like a dog, moving like a fox;" Mr. Alary feels that his animals are similar to actors in that they "shine and have the magnetism of the actors of the truly great eras of cinema."

Likewise, Mr. Alary's unmistakable influence over the direction of jewelry design also extends to his distinctive approach to running his workspace and business generally. He currently has a limited number of employees and, given the size of his staff, they are all able to benefit from their professional intimacy with the complex imagination of an artist driven by elegance and real accessibility. For example, Mr. Alary communicates often with his staff about his strong belief in "staying true" to the work, and the importance of putting a voice into every piece that they create. With Mr. Alary, his staff is making more than just jewelry; they are evoking and creating memories for future owners of the pieces. Mr. Alary also teaches that the technical aspects of the creations require meticulous care and special efforts. While Mr. Alary intends to grow his business in the future, he says that he will always "stay true," and will ensure that neither he nor his staff will ever sacrifice the integrity of his creations, even when they are ultimately working on this larger scale.

Among his many accomplishments (Mr. Alary was previously a jewelry and graphic design consultant for Marc Jacobs and an art director for music labels), Mr. Alary was recently honored as a runner up among ten finalists (chosen from countless applicants) in the elite 2013 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA)/Vogue Fashion Fund competition, which included participating in intense judging panels and a studio tour, among other challenges. Competition judges for the award were Anna Wintour (Vogue Editor-in-Chief), Diane von Furstenberg (CFDA President and DVF Founder and Designer), Andrew Rosen (Theory President and Founder), Jenna Lyons (J. Crew Executive Creative Director), Reed Krakoff (Coach President and Executive Creative Director), Steven Kolb (CFDA Chief Executive Officer), Jeffrey Kalinsky (Jeffrey President and Nordstrom Executive Vice President), Mark Holgate (Vogue Fashion News Director), Ken Downing (Neiman Marcus Senior Vice President/Fashion Director), and David Neville and Marcus Wainwright (Rag & Bone Managing Partners). Along with this prestigious honor, Mr. Alary received $100,000 and a one year mentorship with industry veteran Tomas Maier (Bottega Veneta Creative Director). The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition was filmed for a series on Ovation. On receiving this significant honor, Mr. Alary says that "it was a great honor and incredibly special to be part of this."

With his elegant, yet relatable creations and corresponding approach to his workplace, like many of the great auteurs, Mr. Alary narrates his personal creative vision. Through these magnificent animals, Mr. Alary shares his imagination with those who have the opportunity to see and perhaps even own his unique creations, thereby adding for eternity to plots already in motion.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
