Chloé Fall 2018 Accessories

Chloé Fall 2018 Accessories

Fall 2018 Accessories

The Fall 2018 collection designed by Natacha Ramsay-Levi evolves a confident through line from the debut runway collection, by building upon a feminine wardrobe with timeless, urban élan.

 

The Drew Bijou, introduced during Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s runway debut, comes in new finishes such as burnished ‘sfumato’ tobacco leather, leopard print calfskin or rounded quilting.
The Roy bag another of Ramsay-Levi’s new designs, comes this season as a bucket bag,
featuring a canvas drawstring insert and finishes ranging from yellow diamond python, prancing horse embroidery, and burgundy calfskin.

A new Chloé sneaker makes an assertive statement this season.
High and low top styles boast a juxtaposition of natural elements such as cotton straps and leather detailing with nylon panelling and a moulded utility sole.
Pointed boots, meanwhile, define the silhouette: built on a stacked Cuban heel,
they extend as thigh-high laced cuissardes, or zip to mid-calf worn with striped rugby socks.

Finally, the esoteric illustrations of Rithika Merchant are isolated and transformed as delicate jewellery: hands, eyes, leaves and an articulated feminine form become seductive totems suspended from horse-bit chains and encrusted hoop earrings.
Multi-ring jewels return as knuckle-duster rings and stacked earring styles.

The collection is available at the following locations:
Chloe boutique
Fashion Avenue, The Dubai Mall, Dubai 
– Chloe boutique
Centria Mall, Riyadh, KSA
– Chloe boutique
El Khayyat Center, Jeddah, KSA
– Chloe boutique
Thuraya Mall, Kuwait
– Chloe boutique
Beirut Souk, Lebanon

Chloé Spring 2019 Collection

Chloé Spring 2019 Collection

Spring 2019 Collection

 

 

Through adaptation and evolution, the Chloé woman for Spring 2019 personifies the vision of creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi – a bold expression of multiple feminine identities that transition effortlessly from day to night.

The silhouette is glamorous yet urbane, the palette awash with powdery neutrals, marigold, navy, sage and saffron.
Considering an innate confidence by embracing allure, sharp and fluid silhouettes twist French classicism to channel the vital spirit of Chloé’s cinematic past.

 

 

Perennial daywear classics emphasize Chloé signatures, and a decisive focus on the dress as a staple of the Maison sees the concept of flou refined; slim, floating skirts kick at the calf, slash at the leg or fall into a pointed hem.
Feminine lace is scalloped and striped, pieced into crepe de chine or zebra satin as a sensuous counterpoint.
Saharienne shirt dresses echo outerwear details with press studs and a rolled epaulette, whilst capped, flounced or keyhole sleeves emphasise a statement shoulder.
A Chloé icon reinstated by Natacha Ramsay-Levi, the rearing horse motif alights throughout the collection, appearing as an allover print on flared denim, dissolving across striped shirting, and mirrored as sequin embellishment.
Flowing line prints, macro paisley, and tiny ‘forget-me-not’ flowers provoke a subtle and graphic clash.

 

 

Echoing the collection’s textural play, the Tess bag returns in spazzolato sfumatto leather or stamped croc calfskin, and the Roy is accented by a sporty framed logo. A future classic, the new Chloé bag closes with a polished ‘c’ clasp, featuring matte or shiny calfskin and two-tone metal hardware.

 

 

On foot, sandals are draped with chains or webbed utility straps, mules cut away in scalloped water snake print, and tall Cuban boots are crafted in stamped croc.

Gold bracelets and rings reprise geometric shapes and artisanal finishes, whilst the horsehead becomes a pierced winding cuff.
Suspended earrings are a patchwork of pearls, beaten metalwork, and the new Chloé ‘c’ logo.
Gilded cross-body jewelry (harnesses, chain belts) is worn independently or integrated into garments like delicate modern armour.

Givenchy Haute Couture Fall – Winter 2018

Givenchy Haute Couture Fall – Winter 2018

 

 

For the Givenchy Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2018-2019 collection, Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller wished to create a homage to Monsieur Hubert de Givenchy, not only for the timelessness of his creations, but as a tribute to the innate elegance of the man himself and the grace with which he lived.

With refinement and restraint, the Fall-Winter 2018-2019 Givenchy Haute Couture collection mirrors the personality of the house’s founder. Sleek, graphic and slightly futuristic shapes echo those of Monsieur de Givenchy in the Sixties and Seventies, renewing the purist’s vision of effortlessness.
Men’s tailoring techniques inform capes and coats, contrasting with the poise of flou in draped silk cady or georgette and crystalline shades of aquamarine, coral, verdigris, or deeper, subterranean shades of blue, purple and faux black. Mysterious, monolithic embroideries recall cave formations and slices of minerals, infusing silhouettes with frost, shine and the modern attitude that is Clare Waight Keller’s signature.

 

 

For women, bijoux de corps crystal and metallic elements enhance duality, while supple, embroidered leather, velvet and the sheen of goose, ostrich and coq feathers are worked with the ease of faux fur, infusing looks with a mystical sensuality.
In homage to his beloved muse, M. de Givenchy’s iconic little black dress nods to timeless glamour with an of-the-moment twist.

 

 

Interspersed throughout the collection, men’s looks feature chiseled shoulders, an icy elegance and silhouettes inspired by the looks that M. de Givenchy favored for himself, including a classic double-breasted jacket, a red cape, polished slim-cut suits and the turtleneck.
To this lexicon, Clare Waight Keller brings her own vision of effortless elegance in a modern evening tail coat, and sharp coats with cascades of mineral or agate-inspired embroideries.

As a salute to the founding couturier’s agile wit, each look in the Givenchy Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2018-2019 collection is named with an adjective M. de Givenchy once used to refer to his runway looks and, by extension, his loyal clients, women who won his admiration for their audacity, frivolity and smarts.

Ulysse Nardin Jade “Lionfish”

Ulysse Nardin Jade “Lionfish”

A warm welcome to Ulysse Nardin’s Jade “Lionfish.” The beautiful marriage of style and substance.”

When it was first introduced in 2013 Jade represented several firsts in Haute Horlogerie. Its UN-310 caliber was the first movement to be designed and produced in-house by Ulysse Nardin specifically for a woman’s watch. And it was the first timepiece to take into account a woman’s delicate manicure when manipulating the settings. How? With its innovative crown design: no pulling is required to wind the watch, set the time, or adjust the date back-wards or forwards, only a simple turn. A dainty crown position indicator on the dial shows the wearer which setting she is adjusting. Ulysse Nardin has created a unique “Cloisonné” enamel timepiece in rose gold that displays all the craftsmanship of the Donzé Cadrans enamel specialists with a magical marine-inspired design.

The Cloisonné is an enameling technique in which the outline of the dial designs is produced first on paper and then on the dial itself. Extremely fine strips of gold wire measuring only 0.07 mm wide (no larger than a human hair) are hand bent, applied and glued to the outline using two pliers. The individual cells that give the image de-tail, dimension and nuance are also formed by gold wire and placed within the outline. Colors are then picked out for each cell in order to create the cloister effect.

Five layers of enamel are applied to the cloisonné dial with a brush; all colored cells filled in and baked (800-1200 degrees celsius) in the kiln for a total of five times or more. If needed. Then come the surfacing step before the polishing the dial with a file. These multiple levels of color create the sense of depth and three dimensions that make the enamel dials come to life.

While it appears wonderfully decorative, set with 56 diamonds, Jade has a deeply practical side, as its crown de-sign attests. Its movement incorporates Silicium components for enhanced precision and durability. It boasts anti-reflective sapphire crystal and case back and a water resistance to 30 meters.
