The Imperiale Woman

Maison Chopard has recruited the infallible Hilary Rhoda to front their latest Imperiale campaign, inspired by one of four collections launched this year.

Chosen for her timeless beauty, supermodel Hilary Rhoda embodies the elegance of the Maison’s Imperiale woman. Shot by photographer duo Luigi & Iango in a series of campaign images for four collections that will be launched throughout the year, the Imperiale collection combines Chopard’s current contemporary aesthetic with the familiarity of their house codes.

Debuted in the midst of the star-studded Venice International Film Festival, the campaign, along with the capsule collection entitled, The Empress Jewellery Box, showcases five bespoke pieces – a watch, earrings, ring, necklace and tiara, worn by Rhoda on the red carpet on the night of the event.

 

Alongside the collection the festival screened a preview of Viva Ingrid, a film co-produced by Chopard and directed by Alessandro Rosselini, in homage to his aunt Ingrid Bergman. It comes to no surprise that the Maison would adopt the talents of Rhoda as their charismatic muse in a campaign that embodies the very essence of Hollywood glamour.

Photographed in the City of Light by our team in our September issue, the new collection comprises of a play-off between sunlight and shadows. Drawing inspiration from the French Riviera, colours of azur blue and rich emerald green come together throughout many a creation. Like rays of sunlight, the collection also plays with rubies, sapphires and a palette of citrus hues. It’s the perfect adornment to add some light to your wintery wardrobe.

They Call Me Kloss

Diane von Furstenberg proves (once again) why she's the go-to label for the woman who wants to see and do it all. 

Glamorously emerging from a chauffeur-driven car, supermodel Karlie Kloss is every inch the sultry secret agent. Dashing around New York City, from dodging cameras and slipping through restaurant kitchens to escaping into lifts, Kloss emodies the modern woman. It is with the help of her Secret Agent bag - a mid-size tote with a zip-off clutch at the front - that she gets her jobs done. 'The DVF Secret Agent bag, and the character Karlie Kloss plays, are really metaphors for the DVF woman,' says von Furstenberg. 'She is a businesswoman, mother, a lover, a friend. She is always on-the-go. Now we have created the ultimate accomplice for every facet of the life she lives fully.' Dressed in DVF's autumn/winter 15 collection, from wrap dresses to slip on shifts, every design is made for moving - including accessories.

Why Everyone's Talking about Trainers

Our obsession started with a snap from our Editor in Chief ahead of her travels, opting for airport-friendly trainers, ripped jeans and her trusty Louis Vuitton bag – never has comfort looked so chic.

Why Everyone s Talking about Trainers

Everyone’s talking about trainers, from street style gurus teaming them with feminine floral dresses to Fashion Week attendees adding a colourful edge to their unique ensemble – it’s the one trend that’s easy to indulge this season. Androgyny may be conquering the catwalk, but with fashion’s favourite footwear available in crisp white, bright pink and every shade in-between - there’s a pair for everyone.

Duality in Technology

The phrase 'unisex watches' typically means that a woman can wear a man's watch. Very rarely does that translate to men opting for a woman's design. But innovations are changing this taboo. Replace unisex with duality, watches designed for both sexes without the label. Look to this season's birth of the smartwatch, a technological breakthrough. And consider the size, colour and shape of your timepiece thanks to a new bounty of designs specific to your needs. See our round-up of the timepieces to sport whatever your gender this summer.

Duality in Technology

Apple Watch
Available in both a 38mm and 42mm face

Though many have been quick to criticise the Apple Watch (now available online) this piece of technological engineering has offered what many of it's competitors have failed to do, a gender neutral design. Whilst the differentiation between the face size of the Apple Watch may be subject to standard gender preference - the customisable leather loop band and modern buckle designs lean on a masculine trajectory - like many of Apple's products, the Apple Watch caters to all needs thanks to a plethora of apps specific for the device.

Duality in Technology

IWC Portofino Midsize Automatic
Available in a 37 mm face

A classic updated for opulent tastes, the Portofino Midsize Automatic was birthed from the original 1984 model, the Portofino Automatic, initially marketed as a pocket-watch style wristwatch. Fresh for summer pursuits the Midsize arrives with a delicate 37mm face as opposed to the bulk of the 40mm Automatic, and is available in four red gold and six stainless steel versions crafted with or without a diamond-set bevel. The development of the Midsize carries the momentum of watchmakers reissuing archival pieces. It's telling that many are downsizing dimensions to fit a new wave of customer - weather that is a woman on the hunt for her favourite men's watch, or a man looking for something a little more streamlined, IWC have certainly catered to such needs.

Clé de Cartier
Available in both a 35 mm and 40mm face

Don't let the hot pink crocodile strap fool you, Cartier's new release named Clé is the Parisian jewellers latest take on gender neutral watch making. The Clé eliminates the bulk of vintage men's watches for a sleek and elegant exterior appropriate for both sexes. Christened from the French word for key - a traditional method of winding a clock, the Clé possesses an innovative rectangular crown complete with sapphire detailing. Available in rose gold or white gold with a black crocodile strap, it's a watch that can transition you from day to night with the utmost ease.

LG Watch Urbane
1.3inch P-OLED techology

One major player in the smartwatch business is the LG Watch Urbane. In direct competition of the Apple Watch, the Urbane offers Android users a premium timepiece elegant enough to be worn on the wrist with little fuss. Featuring a full-circle 1.3inch P-OLED display, a discreet bevel and smaller dimensions than other smartwatches - 11.1m to be exact, the Urbane is LG's answer to technological refinement. The watch is crafted entirely in stainless steel in either rose gold or silver, and includes a stitch leather strap for comfort.

Tiffany & Co. CT60
Available in 34mm to a 40mm face

The CT60 marks the first luxury watch collection from Tiffany & Co. in over 20 years. Tiffany's new initiative to market the CT60 as an unbranded collection bucks the trend for a current wave of female collectors selecting larger watches and men opting for something slightly more discreet than the norm. The CT60 collection offers a chronograph in 18k rose gold, a 3-Hand in stainless steel with a blue soleil dial and a Calendar watch in 18k rose gold with a black alligator strap.

The SS15 Accessories Trends

From print-mania handbags to architecturally wondrous heels, which SS15 accessory trend suits your summer?

Head to Toe

The fashion pack no longer adheres to such outdated commandments as matching shoes to handbags – instead, this season the collections took us one step further. The bold prints of SS15 made an impact when worn head-to-toe but also head-to-handbag. Accessories took a playful turn in the hands of Valentino, Simone Rocha and Tory Burch, with eye-popping printed bags that camouflaged neatly into their matching counterpart outfits. It’s a brave new world of summer print, embellishment and colour, perfect for any summer sojourn.

Chain Gang

Alongside chunky resin bangles and asymmetric earrings, another jewellery trend emerged: the stacked chain bracelet. We’ve seen oversized hardware at the neck in recent collections and now the wrist takes centre stage, as links in a variety of materials were stacked with abandon. Gucci’s signature horsebit provided a note of simplicity against a heavily textured collection embracing the everyday luxury of the Seventies, while rustic chainmail provided an antidote to Giorgio Armani’s neutral silks.

Architectural Art

Sculptural heels added an architectural edge to our spring/summer wardrobe goals, taking on a height and structure that is Frank Gehry-worthy. Louis Vuitton worked the trend into slim fit boots in the lightest of eel skins and with heels shaped into a four-point star. On a sportier note, Alexander Wang played with the proportions of the ubiquitous wedge heel, turning it into a thing of futuristic beauty. Join in and construct your look from the ground up.

Bucket List

Practical, with a nonchalant, slouchy twist: The short-handled bucket bag is back in rotation as one of the most popular handbag silhouettes of the season. Most notably rendered in suede (Loewe and Gucci) and almost always in neutral tones, luxurious fabrics were allowed to prevail (snakeskin in the case of Giorgio Armani). Pleasingly fuss-free and with enough room for all your summer essentials, it’s the ideal carry-on handbag.

Lace It Up

The gladiator sandal doesn’t slip too far from our thoughts when contemplating summer shoes and SS15 is no exception. Exaggerated this time around, the winding leather bindings of the gladiator reach the knee for added impact. Alexander McQueen took the footwear away from its traditional Greek mythology and towards a dark orientalism inspired by the Japanese geta while Tibi remained at the opposite end of the spectrum, executing the gladiator in a modern minimalist form. Whichever way you wear them, the gladiator sandal is more than just a one-summer romance.
