(Aug 19): Invest in a trendy pair of sunglasses by Cartier

Cartier’s latest fall/winter 2019 eyewear collection has sophisticated and contemporary designs. Inspired by the brand’s signature watches, the collection comprises Santos de Cartier, Panthère de Cartier and Première de Cartier.

The Santos de Cartier range offers bold full-rim frames enhanced with screws that represent the airplane rivets of the iconic Santos watch, while the Panthère de Cartier selection is embellished with sculptural panther heads with hand-lacquered details such as onyx used as panther spots. The Première de Cartier collection reveals autumn shades and combines the Godron motif with the emblematic C de Cartier detail that marks each piece.

CINEMATIC MAGIC

Bvlgari unveils Cinemagia, its new high jewellery collection. A celebration of the Italian maison’s relationship with the silver screen, Cinemagia highlights the same creativity and visionary expertise at the heart of the finest films. Daring colour combinations, materials, gemstone cuts and artistry come together in the collection’s masterpieces. The Action! necklace introduces zirconium — a new metal in high jewellery design with a striking black/silver sheen. The Emerald City necklace is inspired by The Wizard of Oz and features a show-stopping 21.49-carat emerald. With technical ingenuity driving a new, daring level of artistry in Cinemagia, each necklace demands more than 500 hours of work.

SNEAKER CHIC

The sneaker trend is now so big that the comfortable casual shoes seem to be accepted anywhere you go.
