DAVID YURMAN @ Signature Mini Pinky Ring Collection

 DAVID YURMAN presents a new elegant and glamorously modern Pinky Ring Spring 2014 Collection. The Pinky Ring design concept is formed by the artistry of visionary designer Evan Yurman and his passion for Asian culture. To Evan, the Pinky Ring Collection evokes mystery, a sense of fantasy and childlike wonder, romancing the wearer. 

The Collection comes in styles for both Women and Men where the women’s jewelries are inspired to create an unconventional update that is elegantly contoured and encrusted with precious gems. Each diamonds is selected for cut and color, and meticulously hand-set by a highly skilled jeweler.

Another highlight of the entire Collection is the Men’s Signet Pinky Ring which comes in simple gold styles ( 18K Rose Gold and Yellow Gold ). It is an extension of our Signet Ring collection and the design brings a touch of modern glamour to a jewelry classic.

Signet rings originated from ancient Egypt and have been seen to be symbols of power and nobility. They have long been a status symbol across different cultures. In present day, many noble European families continue the tradition of wearing and passing down their rings for centuries. Our Signet Pinky Rings are fashioned in a modern way, making it more luxurious, versatile and irreverent.

Bvlgari @ The Diva Watch Collection

The Diva watch collection by Bulgari is a multi-facetted universe of jewellery paintings and proclaims its roots in the founding jewellery values of the House. A reference to the golden age of silver screen legends, Diva embodies the Dolce Vita era during which Bulgari and the world of movies were inseparable. Countless vintage photos have indeed immortalised the steady flow of film stars going in and out of the flagship boutique on the Via dei Condotti, all clearly fascinated by Bulgari jewellery. For decades and through to the present day, Bulgari has been closely linked to the most iconic celebrities. Embodying a tribute paid by Bulgari to these timeless moments, the Diva watch collection presented in 2013 on this theme is interpreted through the many expressions of Haute Joaillerie. Drawing inspiration from modern-day divas, its captures the spirit of glamour, exalts the graceful charm and reflects the radiance of contemporary feminine icons. Each of the creations in the collection reflects the personality of the woman who, in conjunction with Bulgari, conveys a blend of glamour, charisma, sensuality and passion.

In much the same way as the pictorial arts, the Diva covers a prodigiously varied spectrum of expression. An abundance of gemstone and colour combinations compose jewellery scenes encompassing a broad range of colours. From shimmering turquoise, diamonds and tourmaline to the pristine beauty of white embodied in the diamond alone, as well as the restrained glow of gold enhanced by gently contrasting coloured pearls, all of these watch creations vividly represent the history of the House and the symbols that have punctuated its history through the decades. In just a few clever touches, the Diva watch provides a temporal measure of jewellery artistry by interpreting the infinitely subtle nuances of this spellbinding register. The epitome of charm and femininity, the Diva watch plays with the theme of modular geometrical motifs echoing the eponymous jewellery collection. The characteristics pleats of the fan that inspired the object embrace the three-dimensional shape of a delicate corolla. This collection culminates in the full-set Diva watch, enhanced by a paved setting featuring alternating brilliant-, baguette- and round-cut diamonds.

 The 302 baguette-cut, 16 round-cut and 394 brilliant-cut diamonds (totalling 22.62 carats) form a splendid composition in which the sumptuous and elegantly stylised petals unfurl across the details of the generously sized watches. Its small fans are transformed into dainty oriental-inspired “bouquets”, while the simple or double cone-shaped motif adorns the bracelet. The slender grace of the latter creates a light and sophisticated effect that accentuates the softness of the snow-set dial. A true masterpiece of jewellery craftsmanship, Diva and its diamonds perpetuate the spirit that has united Bulgari with contemporary icons for the past six decades. Like an artist, Bulgari plays with the whole palette of colours to compose a stunning gallery of precious paintings.

M.A.C @ A Fantasy of Flower

M.A.C ~ A Fantasy of Flower is a glorious garden of irresistible shades unfolds, its hidden pleasures unearthed as delicate pastel Pigments unfurl and the dewy sparkle of Cremesheen Glass casts a luminous gleam. Rose-coloured hues burst from lustrous Lipstick, while a heavenly hybrid of Mineralize Eye Shadows blossoms with natural splendour. Cheeks are kissed with the graceful glow of Mineralize Blush, and vivid pops of colour flourish.

LONGCHAMP @ SS2014 Fashion Presentation

LONGCHAMP’s Spring 2014 collection travel theme in its most enticing forms. Naturally exotic, essentially elegant, TRIBU LONGCHAMP is the season chicest fashion tribe. True to its name, the Escales collection stops over in three different destinations: Botswana, Portofino and Australia. In this final stopover, it was the Outback, with its wild beauty and spirit of adventure, which inspired the season’s statement print: TRIBU LONGCHAMP.

 The starting point for TRIBU LONGCHAMP was the lorikeet, a small and brightly coloured parrot that is emblematic of Australia. Its rainbow plumage is digitally enhanced and strategically placed on the collection’s key pieces, from leather goods to ready-to-wear, to create the effect of a tribal headdress or trophy necklace.

Chic totes bags in natural linen canvas are emblazoned with the TRIBU LONGCHAMP print in two eye-catching colour palettes: khaki with touches of zingy lemon, and terracotta spiced with burnt orange. Available in two spacious sizes, the larger of which would be perfect for the beach, the totes are finished with leather hand-woven handles and a Longchamp label in ebony leather, defining the season’s compelling combination of elegance and exoticism. Not to be outdone, the iconic Le Pliage® also displays the TRIBU LONGCHAMP print, teaming it with mocha leather trim. 

Jeremy Scott has turned the colour bar test card used to appear every so often on TV sets into a print that he has brought up to date for Spring 2014. With its cotton canvas trimmed in black cowhide, this bag christened the “Color Bar” is the latest addition to Longchamp’s partnership with Jeremy Scott. The colour bands are of course reminiscent of the ones that you used to see sometimes on television screens for calibrating and setting the channels.

On key pieces from the Longchamp ready-to-wear collection, TRIBU LONGCHAMP works both as a pattern and an accessory. Precisely placed around the neckline of a short-sleeved linen coat (a signature piece that Longchamp reinterprets every season), it becomes a statement necklace - an effect repeated on a simple jersey shift and T-shirt, and an airy vest in cotton and silk. Around the waist of the season’s cute linen shorts, TRIBU LONGCHAMP is a trophy belt , no other decoration required!


MARC JACOBS @ SS2014 Fashion Presentation

Marc Jacobs held a SS2014 fashion presentation in Hong Kong recently taking us to a grey, weathered urban shipwreck in the 1890s. Entering the two-story venue, guests will find a washed-out beach, with trashed cups, littered cigarette butts and destroyed fashion magazines half buried in the sparkling black sand, bathed in a disquieting electric blue twilight.

In Marc Jacobs’ interpretation, "it's more of a weird frat party, burning man, shores-of-Gotham city sort of beach scene. It's a lovely nightmare, or it was for me anyway." The ambience is indeed very raw and bewitching, with an unspoken dark romance that is both intriguing and sensual.

On the collection, Marc once commented, "I didn't want the cliché of Spring and Summer, I wanted it to be about girls who have no problem coming to work in a Victorian gown and Birkenstocks… I don't have one friend who dresses in all white." 

The puff sleeves, high collars and tassels on mannish jackets add a touch of Goth and mystery. There are large hibiscus prints in red and white, but black, navy, bottle green, and brown are the dominant colors.

Silhouettes are classic and even theatrical, but trails of contemporary sportswear can also be found. For footwear, sandals glitter and suede moccasins sparkle, offering contemporary women the perfect comfy shoes this spring summer.
