Parisian boutique steeped in nostalgia
The Swiss watch company’s mega store has reopened its doors on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, in a tromp-l’oeil-style City of Lights. Walking the cobbled streets and observing scenes of everyday life through the windows/screens of the small traders does not prevent the visitor from contemplating the clocks displayed in the booksellers’ stalls. For bespoke design enthusiasts, the boutique offers the new Swatch X You personalization service, which allows shoppers to create their watch from A to Z in just a few minutes.
Tiara in all her states
Chaumet is releasing a gorgeous pop-up book dedicated to her symbolic tiara. Playing with shapes and eras, this iconic jewelery from Maison Chaumet is enhanced with 3D illustrations by Christiana Williams and texts by Michelle Gazier. From the gardens of Napoleon and Josephine to the crazy parties of the 1930s, through the tales of the Thousand and One Nights, the tiara demonstrates its ability to adapt to any circumstance. Entitled Dream tiaras, dream tiarasthis Chaumet book is published by Rizzoli New York.
Vespa for a good cause
Getting a red Vespa Elettrica also allows you to do a good deed. In partnership with (RED), Vespa agrees to donate $100 to the Global Fund for each VESPA ELETTRICA (RED) sold. This organization is known for its fight against pandemics such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis. Previously reserved for the Vespa 946 and Vespa Primavera, this special color now adorns the chassis, saddle and rims of the most virtuous model in the lineup.
