Prada Timecapsule is an exclusive product drop of 50 items, occurring once a month, each first Thursday. Today, on July 2nd, 2020 the monthly Prada Timecapsule will be launched on prada.com – at 3pm CET – for 24 hours only. Forget the slow movement of our times, here you have to be fast. Stepping into the footsteps of Riccardo Tisci for Burberry, who used the so-called 24h «drop», a word mainly used in streetwear, for Burberry already, (for the previous post, click here please), Prada is finding new ways how to promote their products. However with Raf Simons at Prada, who is sharing with equal responsibilities for creative input and decision-making with Miuccia Prada, we will see a lot of interesting projects coming up.

Patek Philippe Celebrates Its New Building

Beginning of 2020, Patek Philippe completed the construction work of its new production building in Geneva and celebrates now the occasion with the launch of a limited-edition timepiece. The exclusive Calatrava in stainless steel with a unique design will cause the hearts of collectors to skip a beat.

It is a tradition at Patek Philippe to accompany key events in its corporate history with the launch of limited-edition commemorative watches. To pay tribute to the commissioning of the new production building, a flagship of impressive size for the creation, development, and production of Patek Philippe watches, the manufacture reasserted its tradition by developing an exclusive, unusually designed Calatrava explicitly for this event.

This new Ref. 6007A-001 Calatrava instantly stands out with its case and broad cambered bezel in polished steel, a very rare material in Patek Philippe’s collections that is particularly coveted among connoisseurs. The design of the dial reflects an inimitable and dynamic face. Be it the railway track scale of the hour circle with triangular markers, the pierced baton hands for the hours and minutes that recall the Ref. 6006 Calatrava (part of the collection since 2017), the integration of the self-winding caliber 324 S C movement with an aperture date at 3 o’clock or the applied Arabic numerals: all these elements contribute to a vibrant and exciting dial architecture. The expressly graphic style emphasizes the technical personality of the dial. At the same time, the gray-blue hue is a signature element accompanied by the subtle circular satin finish that contrasts visibly against the white dial imprints as well as the applied numerals and the white-lacquered hands in white gold with luminous coatings.

In its center, the dial features a «carbon»-style texture that plays with light and can be interpreted as an enigmatic footnote referring to the world of high-tech. Another special feature: The calfskin strap with white decorative seams, the prong buckle, and a delicately embossed structure reminiscent of textile fabrics are coordinated in terms of color and structure to match the dial center.

The commemorative Ref. 6007A-001 Calatrava comes in a limited edition of 1000 watches with a diameter of 40 mm and a sapphire-crystal caseback specially marked with a Calatrava cross and the «New Manufacture 2019» inscription. 2019 is the year when the first work groups moved into the new production building. The exclusive styling of the watch stands as a lasting symbol for this new chapter in the history of Patek Philippe.

Hublot x Marc Ferrero Part 2

For its second artistic collaboration with the master of Storytelling Art, Hublot invites «Lipstick», Marc Ferrero’s most emblematic work, back onto the dial of its Big Bang One Click 39mm. In white or black, symbolising inseparable complementarity, it illustrates the universal duality of day and night. An essential white that is subtle and minimalist, seductive without being a seducer. A deep black that is audacious and magnetic. Two watches to remind us that the day without the night is not a day, and that the night without the day is not a night.

«I love the power of black and white. Shade and light. Yin and Yang. One is profound, unclassifiable, eternal. The other is subtle, ethereal, timeless. They symbolise antitheses and complementarity. Choosing black and white means getting straight to the point without an excess of tonalities. The black and white make ‘Lipstick’ even more graphic and its red lipstick more magnetic.» – Marc Ferrero

This time, the artist known for his typically colourful palette tells a story in black and white, in the form of two limited-edition numbered models in a run of 100 pieces. One, in satin-finish polished steel and resin, with a lacquered dial and calf and rubber strap, all in white. The other, in black ceramic with a lacquered dial and calf and rubber strap, in a pairing of black and white. Two opposites that attract and complement each other. Marc Ferrero conveys the message of a free woman in this iconic duo of watches, by affixing his work from the dial and extending to the strap.

Playing with contrasts, only the lipstick asserts itself in colour, in a flashy red, a reminder that, underneath the large black glasses, «Lipstick» is paying tribute to the woman of the 21st century. A heroine of modern times, multifaceted, assured and enigmatic. A woman who dares to do anything, directly, and without subterfuge.

Clash de Cartier Debuts New Additions

In a private appointment at CARTIER this week, I had the opportunity to finally discover the new addition to the Clash de Cartier collection, that debuts a white gold series and some limited edition amazonite novelties.

Those beautiful studded and spiky fine jewellery pieces are available now in four designs:
1 Clash de Cartier ring, small model in a rhodium-finish 18K white gold, CHF 2150
2 Clash de Cartier ring, medium model in a rhodium-finish 18K white gold, CHF 3100
3 Clash de Cartier ring, medium model in a non-rhodium finish 18K white gold, CHF 3100
(the non-rhodium finish looks darker and more matte, something that might appeal especially to men and those who like their jewellery to look more fashion-forward)
4 Clash de Cartier bracelet, medium model in a rhodium-finish 18K white gold, CHF 8850

Looking at my arm, I am seriously into stacking goals. Needless to say, I have immediately fallen in love with the new Clash de Cartier white gold bracelet which I think would finish off my collection perfectly. It also looks great in combination with my small Clash de Cartier rose gold bracelet.

Do you like stacking your arm as much as I do?

And their is more. Following the debut release of 18k white gold versions, the brand has also added a line of limited edition amazonite novelties. Take a look at these new beauties. I am madly in love, especially with the ring.

CHANEL Les Beiges Summer of Glow

Let us dream a little of careless summer days with this new make-up collection by CHANEL. It’s the promise of an airy and dazzling warm season. The delicious caress of sunlight on skin beaded with seawater. A feeling of freedom, instilled by a sailboat gliding along the coast against the Mediterranean. Inspired by the relaxed lifestyle of the French Riviera, LES BEIGES sets sail this season with an exclusive collectionSUMMER OF GLOW.

LES BEIGES SUMMER OF GLOW shakes up summer with a powerful breeze of freedom. Luminous, it is an infusion of beloved summer light. Delectable warmth on the skin. Lightweight, inspired by the aura and free spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel, this new collection has only one goal in mind: a sun kissed healthy glow that seems revived by the great outdoors.

Lips and eyes are illuminated by warm shades with coral shimmers and energy that shines down to the fingernails in summery colors.

LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW ILLUMINATING POWDER
EXCLUSIVE CREATION – LIMITED EDITION
CHF 75.00

LES BEIGES began with foundation. This season, LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW ILLUMINATING POWDER comes in two shades. Playing with shadows and light, the powder subtly intensifies the features and enhances natural beauty. Lightweight and airy, it gives the complexion a discreet glimmer, accentuated by luminous pigments with golden shimmers. To preserve this instant healthy glow, the formula is completed with hydrating and antioxidant kalanchoe extract.

It can be applied spontaneously in one stroke, at any time of day, with the help of its large mirror and half-moon brush.
Available in 2 shades: Sand – medium light or Sunset – intense

LES BEIGES SHEER HEALTHY GLOW HIGHLIGHTING FLUID
CHF 63.00

A delicately iridescent complexion enhancer, LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW HIGHLIGHTING FLUID lights up face and body with a ray of sunshine. Instantly, its formula embellishes the complexion with a subtle luminous veil for an immediate healthy glow highlighting effect. Skin radiates with vibrant freshness and sunny luminosity.

What could be more delicious than the sensation of bare skin? Like the entire LES BEIGES line, this fluid feels imperceptible. Featherweight, it instantly blends into the skin to reveal its natural radiance. For an instant retouching effect, this embellishing filter enriched with pearly particles enhances skin texture on application.

Radiant skin is also, and above all, pampered skin. This is why this embellishing highlighter
contains 69% water and a marine-origin emollient. The complexion seems lit up from within. In parallel, kalanchoe extract protects skin’s natural beauty.

Ultra-sensorial, it is applied with fingertips, dabbed on to structure the face (the top of the cheekbones, on the cheeks, the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow), or as a makeup base for a natural glow. It can also be used on the décolleté and body to intensify the skin’s radiance.

Available in 2 shades: Pearly Glowpearly ivory or Sunkissedpearly bronze

LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW BRONZING CREAM
CHF 63.00

The effects of a golden tan without the risks of prolonged sun exposure… Who could ask for more? SOLEIL TAN puts this sunbathed finish within hand’s reach. This cult product joins the LES BEIGES line and is now called HEALTHY GLOW BRONZING CREAM. Lightweight and extremely soft, this gel-cream becomes one with the skin to reveal its natural beauty. Tanned as if you spent a day in the great outdoors, the complexion dresses up in sunny radiance. Skin is delicately velvety and features are smoothed.

Surprisingly lightweight yet dense, and easy to blend, its texture embraces the skin and disappears. It contains just the right balance of natural-origin wax for melt-away application and mineral powders for a healthy glow effect. In parallel, kalanchoe extract preserves the
beauty of the complexion.

Easy to take from its generous jar, it glides on with a KABUKI brush, wherever the sun naturally touches the skin: the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Workable and easy to apply, the cream can be used to structure the facial contours (smoothed under cheekbones with circular movements) or for an allover look (dabbed on and blended in, from the middle of the face outwards).

Available in one shade: Soleil Tan Bronze Universelle – pearly bronze

LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW NATURAL EYESHADOW PALETTE
CHF 78.00

A sunny healthy glow is ensured by a radiant complexion, but also fresh eyes. This is why the LES BEIGES SUMMER OF GLOW collection includes a new HEALTHY GLOW NATURAL EYESHADOW PALETTE harmony. A palette of five colors, as warm as the landscapes of the Mediterranean coast, and easy to wear and combine. With shimmering tones, each eyeshadow recalls a relaxed and radiant summer: a soft cream beige, a soft and satiny peach beige, a coral with golden and pink sparkles, a peach coral, a taupe brown… A color chart of eyeshadows inspired by gleams of sunlight and luminous sunbeams.

Whether darker or lighter, satin or matte, all five eyeshadows of the palette have a creamy, melt-away texture. Comfortable and longwear, they blend seamlessly together, gliding so easily over the skin that they can be applied with fingertips or a brush.

Multipurpose, the palette can be used as a base or eyeshadow. The eyeshadows can be used on their own or combined. It’s foolproof. The palest shade catches the light at the corner of the eyes and beneath the brows. As for the darkest shade, it can be applied as liner along the base of lower lashes or on the brows to densify them.

Available in one shade: Warma delicate cream beige, a soft and satiny peach beige, a coral with golden and pink sparkles, a peach coral and a taupe brown.

LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW LIP BALM
CHF 48.00

The sea, the sun, the freedom of the great outdoors, nature, the Mediterranean… All of these elements, dear to Gabrielle Chanel, bring a smile to one’s face. This year, with LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW LIP BALM, lips dress up in a sheer and luminous coral.

With its creamy, melt-away texture, enriched with moringa butter and a Vitamin E derivative, this balm nourishes, protects and envelops lips in delightful comfort. Composed of emollient oils, its extreme hydrating power perfectly cares for the lips and further protects them against dryness. After the first application, lips are smooth, soft and delicately tinted with a fresh and luminous finish.

Available in one shade: Warma luminous coral

LES BEIGES LE VERNIS
CHF 33.00

Their colors bring to mind a sun-drenched apricot or a sugary raspberry. The two new vibrant shades of the season are little treats to help you shine down to your fingertips. In this LES BEIGES collection, LE VERNIS de CHANEL offers brilliant color that lasts for days on end. Ultra-resilient, thin and shiny, the coat of color ensures a very long-lasting and even result.

Available in 2 shades: Cruise – vibrant coral and Sailorpink coral

In stores in the end of June 2020.

Watches & Wonders: Monochrome Watches

A huge trend I have been spotting among the Watches & Wonders novelties are monochrome watches, meaning that the dial and strap come in one single color, preferably in an outstanding shade, such as red, green or blue. Monochrome watches are widely popular among watch enthusiasts who love sticking to a minimalist design or by fashionistas who are fascinated by color-coordinating these watches to their outfits.

Below are some of the most beautiful novelties presented at Watches & Wonders online, enjoy extraordinary colors, fantastic designs and a certain retro touch.
