CHANEL New Comete Fine Jewellery collection

Mademoiselle Chanel could recognize a powerful and mysterious aesthetic power in certain forms. The Star and Comet were always her preferred sources of inspiration enhancing women’s beauty with their celestial dust.
“Why look any further? said Mademoiselle Chanel. “Obviously, the constellations I have spread over the hair, the comets that lie on the shoulders trailing a shower of stars, the crescent moons and even the suns I’ve had produced by the best craftsmen of Paris (…) – my stars – this is all very
romantic! Could anything be found more becoming and modern?”*
For their incomparable sparkle, Gabrielle Chanel chose the Comet and Star as essential themes of his first collection, Bijoux de Diamants, presented in Paris, in 1932. “I wanted to cover women with constellations. Stars! Stars of all sizes …” she said.
Perhaps she did not realize it, but from her childhood the Stars and the Moon were already deep within her. She never spoke to anyone about this time, except to reinvent it at will and
embellish it. Every morning, the young Gabrielle went to mass with the other boarders and they
took a long corridor paved with polished pebbles arranged in geometric patterns with
five-pointed stars.
A symbol of beauty, movement and freedom, the Comet has become the emblem of CHANEL Fine Jewellery and continues to inspire its new creations. In a rain of stars CHANEL constantly re-
interprets this motif with accents of eternity. Like a star-studded sky, the theme continues to inspire jewellery

OMEGA 42mm

OMEGA’s new 42mm Seamaster Diver 300M in stainless steel is limited to 7,007 pieces and features a black PVD on black ceramic dial with a spiral-brushed gun barrel design and 9mm bullet head at the centre. On the side of the case, OMEGA has placed an 18K yellow gold plate engraved with each unique Limited Edition number.

18K yellow gold has also been used to create the hands and indexes, including the index at 12 o’clock, which is inspired by the Bond family coat-of-arms. On the 7th day of each month, the number 7 on the date window uses the same font as the 007 logo. There is also a hidden ‘50’ on the 10 o’clock index, which appears by night as a secret signature within the Super-LumiNova.

OMEGA’s enduring connection to James Bond is clearly a source of pride for OMEGA President and CEO Mr. Raynald Aeschlimann, who described the new Seamaster as: “A fitting tribute to a classic Bond film and one of cinema’s most iconic characters. This extraordinary watch is elegant, full of surprises and sure to be extremely popular with collectors and fans of the character, due to its many Bond-related features.”

Presented on a black rubber strap, OMEGA’s new Bond watch is Master Chronometer certified and housed in a stylish black box with gun barrel patterns and bullet head buttons.

OMEGA has been worn on the wrist of James Bond since GoldenEye in 1995, when the spy was first seen on screen wearing his own Seamaster Diver 300M.

Forevermark Diamonds Rocks The Emmys

Mandy Moore and Viola Davis Sparkle in Forevermark Diamonds at the 71st Annual Emmy Awards Classic Diamond Pieces Take Center Stage at the 2019 Emmys

Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama nominee Mandy Moore of This Is Us looked sleek and elegant wearing an off-the-shoulder gown adorned by Forevermark statement pieces and Viola Davis of How to Get Away with Murder radiated classic Hollywood glamour, pairing her black and white ensemble with show-stopping diamond necklaces and timeless diamond studs. 

Hermès Heure H

A strong and steadfast signature, Heure H – created in 1996 under the impetus of the designer Philippe Mouquet – is more than
a watch. It is indeed a symbol, which has maintained its edginess, its dynamism and its freshness over the years, thanks largely to the
singular idea of capturing time inside a letter. An amusing way to frame the passing of time.

An object of Hermès’ leather goods expertise, the double tour strap – designed by Martin Margiela for his first fashion show for Hermès in 1998 – fits seamlessly into the case and accentuates its graphic shape. This watch band features a dual nature, with a classic finish between the case lugs and a geometric micro-perforated H pattern on the second loop around the wrist. To achieve a transparent effect, a wafer-thin sliver of Beton leather is inserted between the two strap sections.

Crafted by Hermès Horloger artisans, the Heure H watch case is available in two versions. The first, made of steel, is adorned with an apricot or vermillion strap, while the second rose gold-plated variation comes with a black or etoupe strap. The white lacquered dial, punctuated by four Arabic numerals and metallic hands, strikes a pleasing contrast with the strap colours. The overall result is a perfect match between rigorous stylistic
and technical disciplines, highlighted by the precision of a deft and expert touch.

John Hardy Launches Tiga Classic Chain: A Vintage Reissue

John Hardy is pleased to introduce Tiga Classic Chain as an evolution to the iconic Classic Chain® collection. While revisiting the origins of John Hardy, Creative Director Hollie Bonneville Barden discovered this triangular iteration of our signature Classic Chain, originally developed in the 1980s by our master artisans in Bali. Tiga Classic Chain returns with a modern pyramidal form that adds height to you stack and locks with a reimagined doubled-faceted clasp for women and men. Translating into the Balinese word for “three”, Tiga references the harmony of self, soul and nature – when aligned, they ignite a powerful force.

Inspired by the signature weave of our Classic Chain, this technique is descended directly from traditional Balinese chain-weaving, where women weave offerings of flowers for the gods as well as cloth and baskets as a part of daily life. Traditionally, weaving was an art that took place in the home, empowering women to bring prosperity to their families. To this day, our Classic Chain collection is still woven 100% by women. Artisan handcrafted every step of the way, the process begins with the creation of the wire itself, pulled through metal draw plates, and ending with the final process involving the precise hammering to achieve the sharp angles and signature pyramid shape.

The collection reaches pinnacle expression in our Fall 2019 campaign where both muses Penélope Cruz and Adwoa Aboah show their magnetic yet grounded spirits while highlighting the various offerings of this soulful evolution to Chain. Cruz combines the designs, pairing a bold, graphic Tiga Classic Chain bracelet stack with dramatic hoop earrings, while Aboah remains true to her signature aesthetic highlighting the new Tiga Classic Chain necklace layered with fine, gold Classic Chain® and a myriad of earrings.

Melding the past with the present, Tiga offers an angular interpretation of the John hardy archive in styles for both men in bracelets and women in a variety of bracelets, necklaces and rings.  In Hong Kong, the collection will be exclusively available first at Sogo Department Store in Causeway Bay beginning August 1st,, and available from September onwards in Gateway Boutique and Lane Crawford.
