Zenith Announces Special Edition Defy Classic Range Rover Timepiece

Zenith’s three-year-old partnership with Land Rover has resulted in another timepiece called the Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover Edition. The previous timepiece Zenith created with Land Rover was the Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar, which was launched last year. It was created specifically to celebrate the Range Rover name and the same formula has been used to inspire the Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover Edition. With this timepiece, Zenith is importantly helping celebrate the launch of the Range Rover Evoque vehicle.In designing the timepiece, Zenith has drawn inspiration from how the Range Rover Evoque fits well into the countryside and the busy streets of a city. As a result, the timepiece is a perfect amalgamation of “chic and sporty” and fits squarely into the Defy Classic collection. The timepiece also reflects the luxury appeal of the car with distinct modern elements, along with a 41mm case, which is designed to appeal both to men and women. The seconds hand and oscillating weight of the timepiece are outstanding. The watch comes in an attractive Arctic Petrol color, which is similar to the hue used in the accents of the steering wheel of the Range Rover Evoque.The watch features an Elite 670 skeletonised movement, which provides a power reserve of up to 48 hours. The open worked dial heavily draws from the design of the wheel used on the Range Rover Evoque.Click on the slideshow to check the timepiece.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin

Tiffany & Co. Focuses on “Paper Flowers” Jewelry Collection for the Holiday Season

Tiffany & Co. launched the “Paper Flowers” jewelry lineup this year, and the company is highlighting how the collection remains perfect for the holiday season.The Paper Flowers collection which is composed of high and fine jewelry got its own “Believe in Dreams” campaign earlier this year with Elle Fanning in the lead. The actress who has starred in films such as “Maleficent” and “Teen Spirit,” collaborated with A$AP Ferg  in the creation of a song titled “Moon River,” which was included in the campaign.  Fanning’s “ethereal vocals” brought a dreamlike vibe to the original lyrics created by A$AP Ferg and helped set the tone for the campaign film.The collection which is being promoted in the holiday campaign resembles paper flower petals, often grouped together in various formations when creating elegant centerpieces on tables. Created by chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff, the “Paper Flowers” jewelry collection is a combination of “refined femininity” and “industrial modernity.”The collection is heavily influenced by naturalism with the iris flower serving as inspiration behind the inclusion of tanzanites when creating the flowers. Yellow diamonds are also included in the collection and help recreate the sparkling hue of fireflies in the pieces. Platinum with a high quality polish is used to create the petals of the flowers, which either remain plain without embellishment or studded with round diamonds. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings are included in the collection and high jewelry pieces, such as the bib necklace features over 68-carats of diamonds with pear-shape and round brilliant cuts.Click on the slideshow to check the collection.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
