Chloé Summer 2017 Bags Collection


Chloé Summer 2017 Bags Collection

Debuting for Summer 2017, the new ‘Nile’ bags are the statement bags this season. Inspired by the jewellery collection, the refined half-moon shape bag is adorned with a signature golden bracelet handle and metallic golden arc that underlines the feminine round shape.


For a masculine twist, the Nile saddle bag is inlaid with equestrian details, leather band with golden studs, and jewel details.


The Summer 2017 bags collection embraces a sartorial marine palette of optic white, navy, silver blue and sepia red, lifted by summery fresh shades of blush pink and beige.


Other than the classic combination of suede and smooth calfskin, this season Chloé incorporates lambskin and watersnake into the bags for an exotic flair.


Les Éternelles de CHANEL 2017


LES ÉTERNELLES DE CHANEL

For the third consecutive year, CHANEL presents new models for its collection of Fine Jewellery watches, Les Éternelles de CHANEL. Conceived as a capsule collection, these secret watches, which embody all the creativity and savoir-faire of CHANEL Fine Jewellery and Watches, are enriched year by year. In 2017, the Fine Jewellery Studio of Creation at CHANEL reinterprets the lace and ribbons so dear to Mademoiselle Chanel with three unique pieces. Les Éternelles de CHANEL are inspired by the fundamentals of CHANEL style and reflect the ever-renewing creative spirit at the heart of CHANEL Fine Jewellery.

The Ruban Watch
The Ruban watch evolves with absolute liberty, wrapping around the wrist like a jewel-encrusted ribbon. This delicate, 18-carat white gold lace with 1,369 diamonds – including 7 Fancy-cut diamonds – hides on one side a secret watch, and, on the other, a 5-carat pear-
cut diamond.


The Médaillon Watch
On the back of this engraved rock-crystal medallion, pearls and diamonds including a pear-cut Fancy Light Yellow 5.32-carat diamond hide a watch paved with diamonds. The medallion is set on an 18-carat white-gold chain, set with 587 diamonds.



The Camélia Watch
At the heart of a pearl necklace, which can be transformed into a bracelet, a watch is concealed by a bouquet of 18-carat white-gold camellias and 503 diamonds, including a 10-carat Fancy Brown Yellow diamond.

The campaign shot by the fashion photographer Matthew Brookes in an atelier near Paris and features, for the second season, the model super-star Andres Velencoso. Andres embodies the Cerruti man and spirit of Cerruti. Andres is also the face of CERRUTI 1881 fragrance campaign.

Shot in an urban studio, the face of Andres and clothes are the focus”.

Brooks Brothers Summer 2017 Men's & Women's Collections

Brooks Brothers Summer 2017 Men's and Women's Collections are inspired by seaside resort, with the main color of navy blue, as well as other bright and sharp colors, combined with floral or palm tree blue prints, the collections perfectly express the theme of seaside voyage.


The men’s collection moves from a Lakeside neo-nautical theme to a leisurely deck side inspiration. Comfortable linens are colored with soft brights and highlighted with whites and neutrals. Timeless classic Brooks Brothers fabrics and patterns including seersucker, linen and gingham are freshened by styling with white pants or garment-dyed chinos. The pool’s deep blue waters influence our indigo-inspired group of micro-patterns, reverse prints, and dobbies. Linen/cotton slubs add newness for wovens and knits, including our favorite Signature Tartan shirts. The second summer delivery layers on saturated colors resulting in a tonal dressing paired with white and navy. The pinks and mid-greens are inspired by wild flowers and printed on shirts and knits.


The Women’s Collection voyages from the ocean cliffs of Newport, Rhode Island, to the shimmering beaches along the Côte d’Azur. By playing with proportions and feminine constructions, the collection offers ease and wearability. It is shown in sandy neutrals, sun-bleached whites, chambray blues, pale rose pinks, and navy accented with touches of coral. A flirty off-the-shoulder sundress in silk cotton voile features the exclusive print - Palm Tree Blue. Eyelet cotton lace dresses in either a drop-waist or a classic shirt dress cinched at the waist offer a feminine and elevated look. Luxurious textures include glazed and embroidered chambray linens, corded cotton and embroidered linens. Prints include nautical stripes, as well as ocean and botanical garden floral.



BREMONT 2017 New America’s Cup Range Timepieces


Further developing its America’s Cup range of timepieces, Bremont continues to innovate with its sailing watch collection, the very successful launch of the Regatta watches in 2016 took Bremont in a new direction with some beautifully designed Regatta countdown timers. The importance of countdown functionality when racing is paramount and having made considerable investment in developing two unique Regatta chronograph calibres Bremont will now be launching its third Regatta movement with the Regatta AC II, being made in a limited edition of 135 pieces.


Founded in 1851 off British shores the ‘Auld Mug’ was presented to the fastest boat to sail around the Isle of White. The schooner ‘America’ won and from then on, the greatest sailing competition in the world, has been known as the America’s Cup. Bremont, now in its third year of working with the America’s Cup Event Authority, is looking forward to seeing how the event will conclude in June 2017.  As a very clear to read chronograph, which incorporates a Regatta countdown, the new Regatta AC II is designed to be both highly legible and incredibly tough whilst at sea. For this reason, it has been manufactured from hardened stainless steel, made to an exceptional hardness of 2000 Vickers which is seven times that of an average stainless steel watch case. Equally the convex sapphire crystal is extremely durable and has nine layers of anti-reflective coating applied to both sides of the glass for increased legibility.


The new Regatta timepiece has a different configuration from those launched in 2016 with a customised 15-minute countdown disc in the 12 o’clock position combined with an integrated internally rotating bezel for additional timing functionality. Bremont will also be launching its new AC 35 model which will be made in a very limited run of 35 rose gold watches, to mark this being the 35th America’s Cup. The AC35 incorporates Bremont’s beautifully made proprietary BWC movement and is a timepiece very much inspired by the legendary J-Class yachts of the 30s with its classic and understated design. The beautifully shaped blue steel hands set against its black dial captures the timeless elegance of the J-Class, with the black dial being subtly embossed with very fine imprints of the Auld Mug, the oldest trophy in international sport. The motif offers certain depth and texture across the dial and the watch bears the ‘Bermuda’ mark to commemorate the 2017 final. The special BWC movement, many parts of which are made by Bremont in the UK, can be seen through its exhibition case back.
