The latest trends: Timeless elegance and bold statements

Marc Jacobs

Unlimited creativity

Jaeger-LeCoultre has presented three new high jewellery watches that combine exceptional gem-setting with the 101 calibre. This line is made up of the 101 Secrets model, set with almost 27 carats of diamonds, whilst the 101 Bangle model comes in two versions – one in rose gold with a red lacquered dial complemented by diamonds, and the other in white gold with a white lacquered dial complemented by sapphires and diamonds.

Feminine aesthetic

Carolina Herrera’s latest eyewear collection for spring/summer 2024 reflects the essence of the brand, emphasising a feminine, contemporary and cheerful aesthetic. Featuring sophisticated new styles decorated with the emblematic CH monogram, the glasses come in refined constructions, featuring square and cat-eye shapes, unexpected touches of colour and combinations of materials, particularly acetate and metal

Colour and boldness

Chopard’s “Coloured Dreams” collection returns with the Rings of Eternity, taking on new bold and fresh interpretations. Coloured gemstones are the highlight of this line, having been carefully selected for their colours – sapphires in feminine shades of soft blue, violet and pink; red rubies that reflect passion; luminous yellow diamonds; and emeralds in a deep, elegant green.


Carlos Gil’s latest collection for autumn/winter 2023, “Alma” (Soul), is an immersion in the Portuguese brand’s 25-year history. The designs presented are marked by structured lines and an exclusive floral pattern, combining different emotions in cashmere, silks, recycled polyester fabrics, rain jackets and quilts in a palette of colours ranging from greens to pinks and purples.

Strong identity

Bell & Ross recently launched the new BR 03 collection with six revisited designs – three models with a black ceramic case and three versions in polished steel. They are joined by two new watches, one equipped with a copper face and the other in khaki-coloured ceramic. Powered by the BR-CAL.302 automatic movement, with a battery life of up to 52 hours, the new watches come with a 41mm case and water resistance of up to 100 metres.

Space mood

The galaxy is the motif for the Montblanc StarWalker collection of writing instruments. StarWalker SpaceBlue is inspired by materials from outer space, in particular the Widmanstätten pattern, one of nature’s most hypnotic creations. The representation of this pattern is the central focus of this edition’s design, which pays tribute to the Viennese scientist Count Alois von Beckh Widmanstätten, one of the first people to discover and study the phenomenon in 1808.

Distinctive design

Marc Jacobs’ latest autumn/winter 2023 eyewear collection is bold and elegant. The Premium Man sunglasses and prescription glasses feature a distinctive design, such as the bold rimless mask or the metal and acetate prescription glasses, highlighted by exclusive details, such as the double metal tip finishes. With a unique colour palette, the collection includes uniform shades, in brown or transparent.

Always on the move

Samsonite’s collection of backpacks and briefcases feature a contemporary design that adapts to any style and occasion, making them ideal for professionals who are always on the move. Highlights include the Pro-DLX 6 and Spectrolite 3.0 collections, featuring a more functional style; the Biz2Go backpacks, with reflective details and a carabiner for bike lights; and the StackD Biz collection with an equitable approach to design and functionality.
