JUST A LITTLE CRUSH
It’s a crush that has (for us at least) transformed into true love. Inspired by the matelassé quilted motif, these covetable pieces from Chanel’s Coco Crush collection are a yellow gold bracelet finely engraved with the stylised quilted pattern and studded with diamonds, and asymmetrical earrings in 18-karat yellow gold and 18-karat white gold set with 22 brilliant-cut diamonds.
LE FREAK, C’EST CHIC
Transparent candy floss-hued acetate, embellished with crystals and macro GG gold metal logos, there’s no hiding on the sidelines with these oversized Gucci shades, which are part of creative director Alessandro Michele’s new 250-strong collection. Inspired by street style, explorations and the Renaissance with the overall vision of “Hollywood Forever”, they’re a wearable homage to the spirit of the Seventies.
HAPPY BOVET TO YOU
Created to commemorate BOVET’s 195th anniversary, the all-new Virtuoso VIII 10-Day Flying Tourbillon Big Date watch is now available throughout the Middle East. The 44mm watch, available in red or white gold and platinum, is the first in the Fleurier Collection to feature an inclined crystal aperture along the 12 o’clock to 6 o’clock axis. Classic, ornate and limited to just 80 pieces.
FEEL BLUE, GET HAPPY
Sports luxe has never been chicer, nor has Chopard’s Happy Sport collection, reinvigorated this year with Happy Ocean. Sporty, elegant and with vivid hues inspired by the ocean and coral, the precious jewellery version is a stunner, with an alligator leather strap and navy blue mother-of-pearl dial framed by a fixed bezel set with diamond, sapphire and either ruby or topaz stones. Water resistant to 100 metres, it makes the ideal accompaniment to your next yachting adventure. POA;
A PRESTIGIOUS MALTE-TEASER
With exceptional finishing, the 18-karat pink gold, charismatic tonneau (barrel) shaped Malte Tourbillon with its slate-coloured, sand-blasted dial is the only Hallmark of Geneva certified tonneau-shaped tourbillon model. Endowed with good looks and a 45-hour power reserve, it’s certain to appeal to the collector with distinguished tastes.
BIKE LIGHT WITH BUGATTI
Unveiled at the recent Geneva International Motor Show in March, PG and Bugatti Automobiles inspired murmurs of appreciation when they launched this 95 per cent carbon bicycle, which at a mere five kilograms, is the lightest urban bicycle in the world. Styled as an homage to founder Ettore Bugatti, who also designed a bike, the brand DNA is honoured through the use of materials such as titanium and aluminium – as found in a Bugatti supercar. Limited to just 667 orders, Bugatti customers can even adapt their bicycle’s style to match their supercar, with each bike refined and customised by hand at the showroom in Weinstadt.
TOYZ FOR GROWN-UP BOYS
The sartorial gent knows it’s all about the details, and the details are there in Ermenegildo Zegna’s new exclusive line of men’s accessories, travel, entertainment and home products, which are a feat of textile excellence, luxuriously crafted from the brand’s signature Pelle Tessuta – an innovative woven leather fabric made from extremely thin strips of micro nappa leather in place of fabric yarns. Among the Zegna’s Toyz collection, available mid-Autumn, are dominos and music accessories such as headphones, earphones and speakers, created in collaboration with Master & Dynamic.
