A ROSE-TINTED SEASON
Whatever Raf Simons touches turns to gold, or in this case, rose/deep gray. Since leaving Dior, Calvin Klein’s new chief creative officer’s eyewear collection is not only a glimpse into his artistic and curatorial perspective of the brand, with dual-coloured lenses and sleek metal detailing, this rectangular-shaped pair creates a modern, architectural silhouette that will take you from autumn through to Courchevel.
A PERFECT TEN
With simultaneous readings of 37 time zones, a crown-operated activation of all functions, and a hand-enamelled gold world map with subtle graded shades of blue depicting the seas and continents, the latest version in the Traditionelle collection is available exclusively from Vacheron Constantin boutiques – but there are just 10 in the platinum limited-edition collection, so best be quick.

THE “ONLY” WATCH FOR YOU
Evoking “the last moments of light cast by the sun as darkness descends on the evening sky”, you too, may come over all Shakespearean when you take a closer look at Audemars Piguet’s blue-dialled version of its black ceramic Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, created for the Only Watch auction taking place in Geneva this November. As the first black ceramic perpetual calendar wristwatch with a black ceramic caseback with sapphire display back revealing a unique hand-finished black oscillating mass, it’s a worthy investment for charity.
MAKE IT A MINIATURE
leather is Mulberry’s forte, and there’s plenty of it scattered throughout the brand’s Autumn Winter 2017 accessories, which boast a daring yet vintage vibe with subtle references to the collection’s equestrian theme and antique luggage (think hat-boxes and trunks). Our eyes locked on the Mini Trunk bag in dark amethyst or gold-ochre croc print – certain to become the focal point of any ensemble.
