We all love a good makeover story, don’t we? Tod’s has given its Signature Bag a new contemporary twist. The new designs seal Tod’s excellence when it comes to leather work and overall dedication to craftsmanship. This new look gives the natural quality of the leather to breathe and shine, while retaining and celebrating the circular pebble motif. The T buckle is still present and the Matelassé texture is retained.
Travel and lifestyle
While we may not be able to travel as we did in the past, we can always prepare. Rimowa has launched a new campaign called Gifts for the Journey Ahead, which features a series of vignettes showcasing Rimowa as a symbolic gift that goes beyond its renowned resilience. To do this, the brand has collaborated with LA-based Spanish filmmaker Santos Bacana for a series of eight short distinct gifting stories that focuses on the very moment where relationships deepen forever and a thoughtful gift of a future unfolds.
Celebrating the beauty of a flower
Van Cleef & Arpels pays tribute to the rare flowers that bloom only in winter — the Christmas rose — through the Rose de Noël jewellery creations. The collection was launched by the maison in the 1970s. Originally in pink coral, yellow gold and diamonds, these pieces reflect the creative effervescence of the time, highlighting a multitude of materials and colours. The latest collection sees a sprinkling of diamonds with the reflections of white or gray mother-of-pearl, coral and chalcedony, as well as chrysoprase.

From a bygone era
From the excessive belle epoch era and a nod to designers such as Paul Poiret, Madeleine Vionnet and other icons come a collection of shoes designed by Manolo Blahnik. Through Blahnik’s eyes these inspirations are turned into works-of-art through the use of piping with cotton velvet and silk cord in contrasting colours as well as angular cut- outs, stripes, suede and textured gold bands and more.
