Highlights of the Week
Welcome to The Luxury Channel
This week on The Luxury Channel, we get dressed up with the must-have accessories to complement our inter-seasonal wardrobes.
We’ve had a sneak peek at the new collection from Shawish Genève as we visited their flagship Chelsea boutique just before its official launch. The Swedish jewellery house’s creations are transformed from authentic legends, bringing to life the most improbable visions. We particularly like the sparkling new Moonlight necklace (ladies, it’s worth a look for this alone!).
We speak to Annoushka Ducas, creative director of the eponymous jewellery brand, to discover what inspires her creations, and how she recognised a business opportunity and capitalised on it. Anya Hindmarch reveals the secret to her handbag empire (plastic bags, as it happens) and how accessories are “mood-altering pieces.” (Her words, not ours!). We also go behind the scenes at Philip Treacy’s photoshoot with Gemma Chan, as she models a series of stylish looks, featuring one of our faves, Cornelia James, glovemakers to Her Majesty The Queen.
Scott Manson investigates the best German watches on the market (that’s right, we did say German, not Swiss) and finds out which chronographs you should be adding to your collection, from well-known watch-makers to the more recently established.
From watches to altogether bigger machines, as we head to France for Chantilly Arts And Elegance. We discover why the traditional home of concours d’elegance is the perfect place to reinvigorate the genre, whilst marvelling at some of the most beautiful cars on the roads. Start your engines!
Finally, we bring you the news that London’s leading wedding planner, Bruce Russell, has set up The Bridal Room. The first online British luxury bridal destination of its kind, The Bridal Room allows style-savvy brides and discerning grooms to plan each and every aspect of their big day, from proposal to honeymoon, by way of weekends away in the country and nights out in London.
Escape, explore and discover our online magazine where you will find up-to-the-minute articles, news and trends on the most sophisticated and smartest goings-on in the world of luxury. We hope you enjoy the fascinating people and stories that can be found here on The Luxury Channel.
