SINGAPORE (Nov 4): Louis Vuitton presents a new collection of bags for men Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh has put a new spin on classics in the men’s leather goods range. Digging deep into the maison’s archives, he found three icons worthy of a makeover.

GOLDEN GIRL

Jennifer Lopez shone at the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 11th Annual Governors Awards at The Ray Dolby Ballroom on Oct 27 in Hollywood. Lopez wore Harry Winston Jewels all set in platinum: the 29.92ct Secret Combination Two-Row Diamond Necklace; the 18.3ct Secret Combination Diamond Hoop Earrings; the 2.89ct Pirouette Diamond Ring; the 2.58ct River Diamond Ring; and the 2.33 Sparkling Cluster Diamond Ring.

CHAIN LINKS

Is it a square or a rectangle? The Cape Cod timepiece by Hermès poses this question. You decide what you want it to be. The 1991 iteration stays true to its aesthetic codes with a focus on the Anchor Chain, whose two half links form a case. This motif, created in 1938 by Robert Dumas, highlights Hermès’ leather craftsmanship. The second loop of the strap is shaped to reveal the anchor chain pattern in the leather. The watch has an opaline dial, Arabic numerals and Rhodium-plated hands. Calf straps come in deep blue, amber, pink and black.

BLACK AS NIGHT

Since 1954, Tudor has continuously improved its professional diving watches. It is from this heritage of technical and aesthetic innovation that the Black Bay Ceramic One derives its spirit and form. A unique matte black ceramic, titanium and stainless steel diving watch, the model is 41mm in diameter and is powered by the Manufacture Calibre MT5602, complete with a black PVD-coated rotor. The timepiece boasts an all-black look — from its matte-black ceramic case with bead-blasted finish to a matte-black domed dial with black gloss markings. Hour markers and snowflake hands are filled with black luminescent material with a green emission. A hybrid black alligator leather and rubber strap with matte black PVD-treated folding clasp and safety catch completes the look
