One style, two icons
Vacheron Constantin presents two new Historiques models — the Triple Calendrier 1942 and Triple Calendrier 1948, with a complete calendar reinterpreted from timepieces of the 1940s. With their calendar function, round case with triple gadroons, two-tone dial, “claw-type” lugs and mechanical manual-winding movement, these new models revive a typical Vacheron Constantin complication and style from this era. The Triple Calendrier 1942 is made from steel, with the hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o’clock, along with hand-type date and day and month by aperture. Calendar indications appear in a choice of burgundy or dark blue on a two-tone silvered dial with a sunburst satin-finished centre and outer zone punctuated by Arabic numerals.


Youthful radiance

Lancôme’s new Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Mask is inspired by its serum in the same range. One sheet of the Hydrogel Melting Mask contains the same amount of bifidus extract found in a full bottle of the Advanced Génifique Serum 30ml. The mask contains probiotic extracts and will leave your skin feeling smoother, fresher and energised.

Light on your feet
Giuseppe Zanotti is not all about dressy shoes with shiny embellishments. With their futuristic and edgy design, the new Light Jump sneakers are for the contemporary lifestyle. Made of neoprene, these shoes are so light and comfortable they make navigating the urban jungle a breeze.

Flower Power
Van Cleef & Arpels greets spring with nine brand-new creations in yellow gold in its Frivole collection. The glittering blossoms feature mirror polishing and dazzling paved surfaces. We fell in love with the blooms, with their gorgeous heart-shaped petals and sparkling diamonds, which would look good as a pendant or ring.

A shirt a day
Jil Sander has the most flattering cut for women’s shirts. And, its new 7 Days Shirt collection takes the headache out of deciding what to wear daily as the label inside indicates the day of the week. The collection, comprising seven shirts, is made from Supima cotton spun in Egypt and fitted with the highest-grade mother of pearl buttons. The shirts are available on the Jil Sander online store and in selected shops worldwide. Individual shirts retail at $1,130 to $1,530, while a set of seven sells at $8,000.
