The ambition of Flavio Pellegrini, the
venerable Swiss watchmaker’s new
president, is to take the company
back to its core values. He hopes
to recapture the ladies’ market
with models that combine beauty
and precision with a design that is
guaranteed to stand the test of time.
A new situation has arisen in the luxury industry,
where wealthy elegant customers
have been enjoying their active lifestyle
using technology, but they wanted to do it with the
same handcrafted materials that they treasure in
their favourite watches and accessories.
Influenced by the world of art, new global doors opening and the desire to disconnect from technology and unwind, designers this season have gravitated toward a palette that is first and foremost calming. Paying homage to the beauty of natural resources, colors emerging in the Spring collections serve as vehicles that transport wearers to more tranquil, mindful environs which encourage relaxation first, followed by curiosity and exploration.

she is talking about an extra limb, invisible

jewellers in Vicenza, Italy, Laura has been
living and breathing jewellery all her life. A
piece of jewellery is practically her extra limb.
