Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard partnered Chopard to launch the Ice Cube Capsule. This collection is designed by Cotillard and Eliott Bliss, the artistic director in charge of her styling. This haute joaillerie set reinterprets the iconic Ice Cube Collection which was entirely crafted by Chopard’s talented artisans with ethical gold and diamonds. The result is a versatile and ever-changing set of earrings that suit every moment of the day as well as a beautiful ring featuring a 5.73-carat princess- cut diamond.

A look back at couture
Rouge Dior launches the New Look ’47 collection that pays tribute to Christian Dior and his first couture show in 1947 that created a new silhouette with the cinched waist and a full A-line skirt. This collection features an imprint of mannequins wearing the Dior dress with a shade of the incandescent Rouge Dior 999 and Rouge Blush 219 that has a shade of pink that gently gives cheeks a subtle flush.
If you are a true blue fashionista, you would have seen all the runway shows online. If you had your eye on the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2020 show, you would have spotted the new Olympia bag by Riccardo Tisci. The shoulder bag is sculpted from smooth Italian-tanned leather that is cut to a crescent silhouette to reflect the architecture of the show venue, Kensington Olympia in London. The collection comes in three sizes and a crossbody bag with various colourways and fabrications. The slim, structured style features gold-plated hardware, magnetic closure, and exterior slip and zip pockets for easy access.
Always use sunscreen
There is enough research out there to prove that everyone needs to protect their skin from the sun. Looking for something to try? We like Sunny Side Up by Yours, a lightweight, broad-spectrum, water-based sunscreen mist that is designed to be worn under and over makeup. The mist is perfect at a time like this when we are discouraged from touching our faces, just a spritz of the SPF 30 non-greasy formula is all you need before you head out the door.
Music to our ears
Devialet, the acoustic engineering company, has launched its very first wireless earbuds, Devialet Gemini. These state-of-the-art earbuds are capable of delivering pristine audio performance. It features a Pressure Balance Architecture (PBA) that provides playback with uncompromising sound quality, two separate microphones in each earbud, and many more outstanding features.
Youth and beauty
You are never too young to start an anti-ageing skincare regime. Perfect Renew Youth by Laniege is targeted for women in their mid- 20s to 30s. Research shows that the youthfulness of the skin is highly dependent on the structure of the youth triangles. A younger and healthier skin has more defined and denser triangle shape on the skin’s surface. The clearer the structure of these triangles, the younger the skin will look. The formula of Glyco-Miracle Technology present in the Perfect Renew Youth series helps to improve five common initial signs of early ageing — loss of radiance, dullness, lack of moisture, rougher skin texture, and loss of firmness — in seven days.
Longchamp pays tribute to Paris, the country of its founding, with a collection that celebrates the casual and playfully Parisian woman with macramé embellishments on many of the skirts, tops and shirt fronts, and a net style print on both ready-to-wear items and some bags and accessories. The iconic Pliage bag is given a metallic treatment.
