01 | Go glamping in the big city with Coach’s Pre-Fall 2020

If you prefer adventures and explorations of the urban variety, Coach has just the thing. Welcome to camp Big Apple, with the great outdoors playfully reimagined in the heart of the city — expect retro glam silhouettes, relaxed chambray elevated with the Coach signature, and prints for days (that Big Apple print in disco-lettering! That forest knit sweater!). Top it off with some fine leather crossbody bags and vibrant bucket hats, and you’ve got the makings of a very fashionable trip.

02 | Gucci unveils limited edition shades for the Rouge à Lèvres Mat

Spring is here, and with it, six new shades for Gucci’s popular Rouge à Lèvres Mat line. The shades were inspired by a fresh spring bouquet, adapted to look good on any complexion. Traditionalists will love the intense Madge Red, while the Jenny Purple will please anyone looking for a surprising pop of colour. It brings with it a silken texture that glides on soft and smooth without drying out lips or smudging colour. 

Don’t be deceived by the seemingly plain exterior: the golden tubes, with a wonderfully subtle pattern of etched grooves, make for the perfect addition to any aesthetes’ vanity.

03 | Jog in style with Roger Vivier’s latest additions to the Viv’ Run

The circuit breaker has turned just about everyone into a jogger — and if you aren’t already, Roger Vivier’s two new additions to their sporty-luxe Viv’ Run line will surely convert you. First up is the Viv’ Run Strass Mule, an easy-to-wear sneaker that comes with a sensual open-back design. Meanwhile, the Strass Buckle Sandal brings with it the breezy airiness of summer, featuring adjustable leather straps and Roger Vivier’s signature crystal buckle, bringing a touch of femininity into the realm of streetwear.

04 | Nest in style with Dior Maison’s new Lily of the Valley homeware collection

There’s nothing like some gorgeous flowers to invigorate a space, and if you — like us — are deep into your nesting phase, then Dior Maison’s new range of homeware is just what the doctor ordered. From delicate motifs on porcelain plates to decanters adorned with these precious sprigs, these pieces are sure to bring a bit of warmth and refinement into any home.

Monsieur Dior himself had a strong affinity with the flower, which he’d often wear in his buttonhole or sew into the hems of his haute couture designs. The Lily of the Valley would go on to inspire much of his works, including iconic silhouettes like the 1957 Muguet dress.

05 | Vacheron Constantin adds a new model to its Collection Excellence Platine 

Three years after its launch, the Patrimony moon phase retrograde date has been anointed with a limited edition, 50-piece Collection Excellence Platine version. Powered by the Manufacture 2460 R31L movement with a 40-hour power reserve, the timepiece comes with a transparent sapphire caseback for connoisseurs to admire the 275-part movement, which includes an open worked 22-carat gold oscillating weight that’s inspired by the brand’s Maltese cross emblem.

Launched in 2006, the Collection Excellence Platine concept sees Vacheron Constantin produce limited-edition watches for collectors, all in 950 platinum from the case to the dial and buckle. Even the midnight blue alligator leather strap is hand-stitched with platinum and silk threads, making for a truly exceptional edition.
