Through the lens
Polaroid’s Spring/Summer 2020 eyewear collection goes big on colourful sunglasses and optical frames that one can wear with a lot of attitude. The classic inspiration for the men’s and women’s sunglasses in metal and plastic is reinterpreted with contemporary touches with materials that are light with bright shades that will dazzle up your days.
It is springtime
The flowers of spring come alive in the hands of expert craftsmen at the Van Cleef & Arpels maison. Each exquisite jewellery piece in the Frivole collection is like an unfurling of a precious blossom. One of the highlights is the seven-flower bracelet that features a combination of different-sized corollas. Mirror polishing accentuates the gleam of the precious metal, magnifying the brilliance of heartshaped petals which unfurl around one or three diamonds.
Skechers launches Arch Fit, new range of podiatrist-approved footwear. The Arch Fit insole system was created with over 20 years of data and 120,000 unweighted foot scans to provide additional comfort, especially for those requiring additional arch support. Each shoe is also fitted with insoles that distribute pressure across the arch of the foot for more stability, balance and support whether you’re standing or walking.

Our beautiful planet
Le Petite Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is an enduring tale of friendship between a pilot and the little prince as they share their views on how only love gives life true meaning. Standing by this adage is Montblanc as it launches the third edition which is dedicated to The Planet — this could not have come at a better time, given the state the world is in. The cap and barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Precious Resin Le Grand and Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Precious Resin Classique are made of a polished burgundy and enhanced with champagne-tone gold-coated fittings. The plated cap of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Doué Classique is etched with stars and the name of asteroid “B612”. The 18K bi-colour champagne-tone gold nib is decorated with a delicate drawing of the rose.
Health care workers wear Prada
