Symbols of love
The Chaumet Jeux de Liens and Jeux de Liens Harmony jewellery collections celebrate togetherness and feature pieces for everyday wear.

Reboot your skincare regime
As the year starts, Laneige has released the reformulated Water Sleeping Mask_EX that is enhanced with new ingredients such as squalane, as well as Sleeping MicrobiomeTM and probiotics complex, to keep the skin’s microbiome healthy, improve hydration and skin texture. The microbiome is a community of micro-organisms living together in a particular habitat and a biological barrier existing on the outermost layer of the skin. A good microbiome balance of beneficial and harmful bacteria is essential for healthy skin.
Get your trainers on

The design and proportions are inspired by the aesthetics of basketball sneakers made in the 1980s and 1990s. These sneakers are all made in Italy with a special mould technique to ensure that they last a long time.

A pop-culture treatment
Swatch collaborates with Disney and the Keith Haring Studio to launch a watch collection that features Disney’s Mickey Mouse. Legend states that the street art pioneer always wanted to work for Disney, and decided to take matters into his own hands by using Mickey Mouse as a recurring figure in his work. It started in 1986 when the artist designed four watches before opening his infamous Pop Shop on Lafayette Street in New York. This new collection is brighter with a solid and striped red strap, taking inspiration from Mickey’s iconic shorts. Haring’s illustration of Disney’s most famous character is etched on the glass watch case.
