Want to Join This Ear Party?

The jewelry stacking game is still going strong, and now more than ever, I wanted to highlight the techniques of mastering this trend. This time around, we’re not going to talk about rings, necklaces and bracelets, because it’s time to have an ear party!

Mixing and matching earrings is not as easy as it sounds. A play on shapes and styles would definitely help put you on top of your game and create a stunning effect that highlights your fashionable sense. From studs to ear cuffs and dangling earrings, your chance to break the rules and prove your character and style is now. Indeed, the world taught us that the most important fashion rule is not to follow one, and no words can express our gratitude for that!

So, back to the earrings, make sure that the ones you choose to stack are proportional. Start off with the longest style as a base because if you wear it on the second ear hole, it might hide the one below it and that’s exactly what you don’t want to happen. You can start with a stud only if the one above it is an ear cuff that perfectly fits your ear, and keep the dangling earrings for the base.

Last but not least, your right ear should not necessarily be like the left one. For a stronger effect, let your creativity run wild and stack’em up!

Louis Vuitton Unveils New Tambour Timepieces

In 2002, Louis Vuitton started its journey in the world of watchmaking. And up until now, the house continues to cherish its creativity and expertise in leather-making through stunning timepieces that became icons thanks to a perfect combination between subtle elegance and strong personality. LV’s values are strongly integrated into each Tambour watch, whether it’s a simple three-hand quartz model or a highly complicated one: think of the twelve Louis Vuitton letters engraved into the case next to each hour, the brown dial inspired by the famous Monogram and the yellow of the seconds hands recalling the waxed thread of Louis Vuitton’s bags.

With these novelties, new touches come to life in a collection of four timepieces - the Tambour Monogram, available in 28, 34 and 39.5 mm models and the Tambour Damier Graphite with a diameter of 41.5 mm. The historic case welcomes new dials that remain faithful to the Monogram and Damier Graphite’s canvases and it’s all thanks to the craftsmanship and expertise of the dial experts at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton in Geneva.

With a quartz movement beating at their heart, the new Tambour watches are supplied with easily interchangeable straps that allow the wearer to choose what’s best in line with their look.

The Middle East in Capsule High Jewelry Collection by CHANEL

Mad about pearls, Gabrielle Chanel never missed the chance to wear these white shimmery gems. Day or night, with sportswear or evening wear, they accompanied her like a talisman. She was overwhelmed by their beauty, moon-like glow and childish roundness. With her strong instinct for women’s beauty, she believes that pearls capture the light, illuminate her face and draw out the sparkle in her eyes.

It’s with a capsule high jewelry collection dedicated to the Middle East that CHANEL brings this identity to light. Entitled “Secrets d’Orients”, it evokes the warm colors of the region as well as the geometry of the mashrabiya pattern. Using Akoya pearls and imperial topaz, the pieces stand out by their opulent and fluid design thanks to dangling pearls and very supple precious chains crafted from diamond-paved gold.

With Mademoiselle Chanel’s interpretation of women’s beauty, these marvels certainly don’t lack that sparkle that makes every woman look and feel beautiful – and if that’s not the point of a house that masters the exquisiteness of jewelry, then what is?

Join us to discover these opulent high jewelry pieces of CHANEL’s “Secrets d’Orients” collection, which is available at CHANEL Watches & Jewellery boutiques in Dubai.
