Prada 2017 Trick Keychains

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


Hands up if you remember Prada’s beloved Edward? In case you forgot, he’s the blanked face robot that came in a Saffiano-wrapped body and electrical cables for limbs that stole our hearts when he first came out back in 2009. Edward is no ordinary robot though; he is actually a bag charm/keychain that comes with his own steel hook and split ring, and over time, has become one of Prada’s most unlikely icons yet.

And because it has reached icon status, Prada’s Trick keychains now extend to a family of colourful robots whom have joined Edward, with equally adorable names like Robin, Romeo and a girl robot named Giulietta, amongst others. Standing slightly taller than their older brother Edward (14 cm), these all-new Trick keychains range between 18 cm and 19 cm long with even brighter and bolder colours (and even more metallic hardware).

An adorable keychain that also looks good on your pouches and totes as a bag charm, you can even hook them all together as a little family of robots, because #moreismore. Available at all Prada boutiques islandwide, these new ones are retailing at SGD610 each, while Edward (which is the OG as far as the Trick is concerned) is priced at SGD430. And something to note, whoever said fashion is a bad investment should know that Edward was retailing for just SGD140 back in 2009. Really.

Zenith creates a special edition Chronomaster to celebrate the launch of Range Rover Velar

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

The partnership between Range Rover and watchmaker Zenith has spawned a new special edition timepiece dubbed the ‘Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition’. The new watch was unveiled on occasion of the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show to celebrate the carmaker’s newest luxury SUV ‘Velar’. In the same vein as the first limited edition unveiled last years, the Velar edition Chronomaster underlines the intend for a long-term partnership between both esteemed brands, and to celebrate two icons that both saw the light of day for the first time in 1969: the El Primero and the Range Rover.

The timepiece features a ceramised aluminum case of 42 mm and a new elegant brushed grey dial with copper-toned details bears copper color-plated and faceted hour-markers and hands, coated with SuperLuminova. It comes with a new black rubber strap coated with black-toned perforated calfskin leather of the same high quality used on Range Rovers and secured by a triple folding clasp in DLC-treated titanium. The case houses the El Primero 400B automatic movement, fast beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour. Equipped with a special oscillating weight with “circular satin-brushed” motif” and adorned with Zenith and Range Rover logos, the movement offers a power reserve of minimum 50 hours. The special edition Chronomaster is priced at $8,700.

Top 5 Initial Jewels: Express Yourself

Top 5 Initial Jewels

The best jewels are the ones with meaning and sentiment. Integrating initials into your accessories can be a nice way to keep a loved one in your thoughts – every time you look at the jewel, you’ll be flooded with love and memories. It can also just be fun to personalize your pieces (I love all things monogrammed – bags, stationary, etc.). Even better yet, they make for thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts!

Accentuality Geode Initial Necklace: This is the ultimate in personalization – you choose not only your initial, but also which color agate you’d like (and each agate is completely unique). Want your first and last initials? No problem.

Sarah Chloe Ava Freestyle Necklace: If you want a nameplate necklace à la Carrie Bradshaw, this is the piece to get. You could even make yours out with the name of someone special, like your tot or hubby.

Jacquie Aiche Alphabet Letter Initial Waif Ring: This slender gold-vermeil ring isn’t screaming for attention, so you could easily get away with stacking two – maybe your initial and your bff’s! 

Roberto Coin Diamond Initial Bangle: Everything is said better in diamonds. Wear this alone for understated style or add on few other bangles to make a bigger statement. 

Jennifer Zeuner Gold Initial Earrings: These are my favorites of the bunch. You buy each earring separately, so you can have one initial for your first name and another for your last!

Crucifix and Rosary-Inspired Necklaces: Cross Your Heart

Crucifix and Rosary-Inspired Necklaces

Okay, I’m not Catholic – far from it – but I’m especially fascinated with the conclave going on. Between that real-life drama and my obsession with silver screen’s The Borgias, it seems like a list of crucifix and rosary-inspired necklaces was almost pre-ordained. So here are the pieces that the clergy from back in the day like Pope Alexander VI would rock with piety and style:

Oscar de la Renta 24-Karat Gold-Plated Cabochon Medallion Necklace: Classic looking charms are joined by lace-look flowers for a chain that is Baroque-inspired, yet decidedly modern. 

Armenta Chrysacolla Cross Enhancer: The oxidized silver hearkens back to an older time for the church, but jewels have never shone brighter. 

Lanvin Swarovski Crystal and Glass Cross Necklace: Yesterday, red drapes were placed over the balcony window where the next pope will soon step from behind. So what better to honor the big reveal than this red grosgrain Lanvin?

Rosantica Rosarietto Agate and Coral Necklace: The subtlest of the bunch, this double chain looks like an extra long loop of prayer beads and even comes in a portable pouch!

Native Jewels Onyx and Diamond Rosary: A traditional black rosary made fit for a pope with an onyx cross and pave diamonds.

Givenchy Silver Crystal Shark Earring: A Magnet for Pain

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Givenchy Silver Crystal Shark Earring

A crystal-encrusted talon is pretty badass, but you also have to be a serious badass to endure the pain this Givenchy causes. The sharp little Shark did his worst – my ear felt crushed between the magnetic pieces. After just 30 short minutes, I had a hot flash headache and couldn’t even see what was in front of me. I took it off, only to find a deep indentation in my ear. I thought this would be a fun, punk alternative to basic hoops, and the clip-on aspect is great for Snobs without pierced ears. I even get the idea behind the strength of the magnet – you wouldn’t want this to fall off and get lost. It’s just not worth the sacrifice, though. I would’ve paid to take it off. Why couldn’t they have just made the earring a screw-on post?? “Beauty is pain” is not a mantra I subscribe to.

Stephen Webster Dark Jewel Collection for Dom Pérignon: Everything’s Coming Up Rosé

I’d like to make a toast – to the champagne-fueled fashion streak designers have been on lately. Yesterday’s Charlotte Olympia x Veuve Clicquot collab had me craving bubbly and cupcakes, and now Stephen Webster (rock royalty’s favorite jeweler) has given us even more reason to celebrate! His Dark Jewel collection was inspired by Dom Pérignon’s 2002 Rosé Vintage, and just like the champagne, these pieces are rich and sparkling. White gold grape leaves coil around Rubellite Tourmalines on the drop earrings and long finger ring. And you know how I was saying I wished Charlotte Olympia’s clutches came with bubbly? These do! Well, some anyway. Ten bottles of the vintage are up for grabs with your choice of either black sapphire cuff links or a pendant necklace. Hurry now before another Rosé obsessed Snob like me gets them first! Exclusively at Fortnum & Mason.
