Louis Vuitton Launches Luxury Smartwatch

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

The French fashion house Louis Vuitton is the latest brand that decided to hop on the wearable tech bandwagon. Louis Vuitton’s first smartwatch carries the name Tambour Horizon. The fashion house certainly loves to challenge themselves with innovative products. Recently they collaborated with the exclusive sportswear brand Supreme. Additionally, the brand’s mini trunk bag designed by the creative director Nicolas Ghesquière as well as the cashmere blankets were a major success as well.

The latest product in the series of innovative launches is their first piece of wearable tech. The Tambour Horizon watch is a modern upgrade of the original Tambour watch with Google’s Android Wear 2.0 operating system.The technology is packed in a 42mm case and works with both Android phones and iPhones. The watch is available in 3 different styles and finishes: polished, satin finish and all black. All the styles are unisex, wearable and designed to blend with any outfit. On top of that, there is a variety of downloadable digital watch faces and 60 different interchangeable strap options.

The smartwatch is designed to work internationally and it’s perfect for the trendsetters who are constantly on the go. For travelers, the brand installed two exclusive travel-centric apps on the smartwatch. The first app is called “The Flight” and is designed to gather the traveler’s air travel info on one place. The other app is called “City Guide” and includes recommendations and tips for exploring the place once you land. The battery life of the smartwatch is similar to those of other smartphones and lasts about a day.“It’s something that is pretty new on the market and at the same time very interesting,” said the vice-president of watches and jewelry at LV Hamidi Chatti. Considering the fact that smartwatches have been on the market for a while this is definitely not a new product.Louis Vuitton’s smartwatch will do everything that a regular smartwatch will do. You could receive text messages, set an alarm, explore the internet, etc. There are also a couple of features that separate the Tambour Horizon watch from the other smartwatches on the market. First, the 42mm dial is the smallest among the luxury smartwatches. Also, Tambour Horizon is the first Android smartwatch that is designed to function in China. This is extremely important for the brand because China is one of Louis Vuitton’s largest markets when it comes to jewelry and watches.

Louis Vuitton’s vice president Chatti revealed that the making of the watch took 2 years. The brand wanted to make sure that they had the perfect product. Their main goal was to create a blend of luxury and beauty in a tech version.

As for the technology part of the design, Louis Vuitton teamed up with Google and Qualcomm. The brand had strict requirements about the design. They didn’t want to compromise on the beauty of the watch and asked Google and Qualcomm to come up with a system that will fit in the style that they designed.

If you want to get your hands on the luxury Tambour Horizon smartwatch, expect to spare at least $2,450. Since we are talking about a smartwatch made by one of the most prestigious luxury fashion houses the price shouldn’t surprise us at all.

However, the smartwatches aren’t a novelty in the Louis Vuitton’s family. The brand’s sister company, Tag Heuer, also dropped its first smartwatch back in 2015. Their main concern was the strong competition from the tech giants Apple and Samsung. Surprisingly, the watches outdid everyone’s expectation in sales. They sold 56,000 units, which was three times more than what they expected. The brand expects to sell over 150,000 units this year.

It’s safe to say that lately, the customers are more interested in wearable technology driven accessories. Louis Vuitton revealed that they are working on other technology driven pieces that can be controlled from the smartwatch. Chatti adds that the future plans will release when the technology is ready and it makes sense for their clients.

Tiffany & Co.: Meet New Face Lady Gaga

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: TIFFANY & CO.

No, this ain’t a Perfect Illusion, it’s confirmed that Lady Gaga will be representing Tiffany & Co. in its latest jewellery collection, HardWearunder the Legendary Style campaign. The campaign will be aired as a 60 second film during the Super Bowl on 5 February.

IMAGE: TIFFANY & CO.

There are probably a Million Reasons why Gaga was chosen as the face of the campaign. Confidence, femininity, authenticity amongst others… but with a collection like Hardwear that’s supposedly hard and soft all at once, there could be no one better than Gaga. Embodying the strength and soul of modern New York, the collection is one that consists of a beautiful selection of earrings, necklaces, rings and pendants.

Tiffany’s HardWear collection will be available in-stores worldwide on 28 April, with pre-orders available from 5 February onwards. More good news for those who are fans of Super Bowl and Lady Gaga – not only will Lady Gaga be performing in the half-time show this year, it will also be the first time ever that Tiffany and Co. will air a campaign during the Super Bowl. And that’s something we can’t miss out on.

Pandora Valentines’ 2017 Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: PANDORA

Think PANDORA and a few things come to mind, such as the lovely collect-them-all charms. Getting your girl a new charm for that special milestone – an anniversary, the first kiss, birthdays… the list goes on. Because a PANDORA bracelet is meant to be decked up with charms, charms and more charms! Right?

Speaking of love and anniversaries, one very special day is coming right up. Yes, you’ve guessed it, it’s Valentine’s, and today’s post is all about their novelties made specially to commemorate the occasion.

First up we have the Struck By Love charm. It’s a cute piece that holds a sparkling arrow and two hearts – one in a cerise pink that’s oh-so-cute. Put it together with the new Moments Silver Bracelet which comes with a Sparking Heart clasp and you’ve got yourself an edgy two-toned bracelet accented with a cute pink heart on the charm.

The Love Struck series comes with more cerise pink, which is perfect for the ladies who love pink. The Cerise Encased in Love charm and Cerise Heart Glass charm scream love like no other.

If you haven’t taken a look at PANDORA’s rather innovative Floating Locket, you should. It’s a locket that you can fill with small items simply known as petites. Because we’re all in the mood for love, this Love Feelingpetites – a special series released for Valentine’s – contains 3 icons: an arrow, the word Love, and a magenta enamel heart (which is more pink if you ask me!).

If pink is not your thing, fear not. PANDORA has two other add-ons that feature the simple yet beautiful words ‘Love You’.

Featuring two-tones – this time in silver and gold (just how do you say no to these two!), I particularly love the dangle which bears an ‘I Love You’ engraving and a 14k gold heart embellishment. It’s named the Love You Forever dangle, the other two-tone charm the Love Script.

IMAGE: PANDORA

Also featured in this series are the Forever Hearts ring and necklace. The necklace sits beautifully in the shape of a cut-out heart, while the ring features two heart-shaped cubic zirconia stones which seem to carefully touch each other, but not quite entirely. Simple, yet beautiful.

IMAGE: PANDORA

Speaking of simple and beautiful, this Sparkling Bow bangle caught my eye. Something different from all the bracelets and charms, this bracelet is from the Ribbons Of Love series. Meant to be stackable with your other PANDORA bangles and bracelets, there’s something about this embellished ribbon on the bangle that says a certain quiet sophistication. Ribbons are actually one of PANDORA’s icons and rounding up this series is a ring and a gift set that contains a necklace and a pair of matching earrings. Not loud at all, pieces from this collection will sit nicely on the girl-next-door or when worn on that quiet night out with your loved one.

Chanel Première Rock Red

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CHANEL

Think Chanel’s Première timepiece and a number of key distinctive features come to mind. That octagonal shape which channels the design of the Place Vendôme, along with those unmistakable chain-links synonymous with the house of Chanel.

And with the new Première Rock Red, the French luxury house takes it a notch further with a colour that’s also unmistakably classic Chanel. Sporting a bright red leather strap that’s interlinked with the chain, this triple-tour beauty comes with an exquisite mother-of-pearl dial, its length allowing you to wear it one of many different ways.

The perfect Valentine Day’s gift since it is also limited to just 1000 pieces worldwide, each Première Rock Red timepiece (SGD6500) also bears the engraving ‘Limited Edition’ at the back and are sold exclusively at the Chanel Fine Jewellery Boutique at Ngee Ann City.

Latest Dior Bag Charm For Spring Summer 2017 Collection

It’s a new year, a new beginning and Dior has just launched a series of fresh bags for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection. These latest handbags will mostly be presented with the fashion house’s logo on the front, however some bags will be crafted with heart-melting words like J’Adore.

New Dior Chain

What’s even more interesting, is the new bold chain, it’s designed with a touch of vintage. This chain is feminine and gorgeous, but it doesn’t fit with the classic DIOR charm that usually comes with the iconic bag.

DIOR-signature-bag-charm

The Classic Dior Bag Charm

DIOR-signature-bag-charm-3

The classic DIOR charm has been the house’s darling for many years and it has been attached to the Lady Dior Bag, Be Dior Bag, Diorissimo Bag and all other classic accessories. Perhaps it’s about time for a small change.

The design of the new DIOR charm feels much more stronger and bolder. It’s less smooth but matches to the new vintage-looking chain like a glove.

It’s unlikely that Dior will change the classic DIOR charm on the iconic handbags, but we will be seeing more and more of this new Charm in the upcoming months.

So which one do you like more? Let us know in the comment section below.
