My Look: Saloni

Saloni Lodha’s Indian heritage and nomadic lifestyle inspire her brand – the name of which means ‘beautiful’ in Sanskrit. Since launching in 2011, its collections have become known for vibrant colors, playful prints and flattering draped dresses. However, one of her absolute bestsellers is this velvet jumpsuit. No wonder why… it is so comfortable yet stylish and chic at once.

The photos were taking inside the Drawing Room at Flemings Mayfair Hotel that echoes elegance and grace in homage to the hotel’s 18th-century origins with its beautiful exquisite hand-painted wall panels that complement the room’s heritage by famous de Gournay depicting early views of India.

My look: Camille crystal-bow velvet jumpsuit by Saloni, Jodie suede platform sandals by Saint Laurent, silver-tone crystal clip earrings by Alessandra Rich, Maillon de Cartier 16mm 18-karat white gold diamond watchicon, and Clash de Cartier bracelet MM in white gold, both by Cartier, and elephant mini crystal-embellished suede shoulder bagicon, all by Loewe.

The New Maillon de Cartier

Watches & Wonders – the watch fair that was supposed to take place this month in Geneva – has been cancelled due to the current corona virus crisis. However, I will show you the newest launches during the next weeks.

The first one I would like to introduce you to is the new MAILLON DE CARTIER watch that is first and foremost a statement of style. The chain-link bracelet remains a composed centrepiece, one that plays on classic codes, whilst reinventing today’s attitudes. Firstly a jewel designed by the Cartier watchmaking studios, it is a precious watch that resides in the creative watchmaking repertoire of the Maison. A bracelet whose chain-links are offset and aligned on the bias by Cartier. Well-rounded and opulent, they move in time with the ultra-feminine elegance of the new masterpiece.

«WE WANTED TO DECONSTRUCT THE BRACELET AND TRANSCEND ITS DESIGN THROUGH A VOLUME APPROACH. EMOTION IS IN THE MOVEMENT AND TENSION
Marie-Laure Cérède, Timepieces Creation Director

It all lies in the twist of the lines, in the torsion emphasising the perspective within which the
watch dial blends. This interpretation allows the case and links to entwine themselves in one graphic motion. Rectangular links, a hexagonal dial, bevelled brancards: the design of the Maillon de Cartier watch incites Cartier’s rhythmic geometry. An ambition to structure the watch, from the form of its links to its faceted case, radicalises the spirit of the watch. Its volume is tangible, angular and dense.

A precious collection, the Maillon de Cartier watch also unites exceptional pieces with stones that enhance the design. The dials are inlaid to echo the sequencing of the stones set in the links. The choice of stones in the blue lacquer and tsavorite version adds to the kinetic relief of the watch. A graphic effect and contrast that Cartier accentuates with a version in yellow gold and diamonds with black lacquer bevelled links.

Investing in gold seems to be a good idea, don’t you think? Gold is considered by investors to be one of the safest investments, recovering its value quickly through economic downturns… no matter how it is a beautiful gift for you or a loved one…

LoL, Sandra
