Apple x Hermès Équateur Tatouage Band

Jewelry & Watches


If you’re a Apple fan, or an Hermès fan for that matter, you would already know about the collaboration between both powerhouses on the Apple watch, and with the holiday season just around the corner, here’s something else you can consider for the loved one who already has such a timepiece.

Simply known as the Équateur Tatouage, it’s a new single tour band printed with a scarf motif designed by Robert Dallet on black calfskin. Look closely and you’ll see a leopard lurking amongst the lush jungle foliage, a print from the archives of the French luxury house that dates back to 1988.

Priced at SGD628 (just to be sure, it’s just the band with the watch sold separately), you will only be able to pick it up from Hermès’ newly-renovated boutique at Takashimaya Department Store.

Tiffany & Co. Tiffany T Square Bracelet With Black Ceramic

Jewelry & Watches


There are bracelets you stack to have the best #wristparty imaginable, and then there are bracelets you can wear on their own and still make a statement. This one, from Tiffany & Co., is definitely one of them. From the much-loved Tiffany Tcollection, this jaw-dropping silver cuff comes ‘dipped’ in 18K gold at the end before it’s finished with black ceramic, for a look that’s not only very sharp, it would be that something special that you can add to your otherwise monochrome wardrobe without looking like you just robbed a pawn shop.

A new arrival that’s priced at SGD2550, there are only a couple of pieces at Tiffany & Co. ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City, so you better move fast to make the T Square Bracelet with black ceramic mine. I mean, yours. Not mine, even though I really want it. Damn it, Alvin, stop blogging and shopping at the same time, ok?

26 Things You Probably Never Knew About Chanel

Jewelry & Watches

There's no confusing those interlocking Cs; the iconic Chanel logo is one we've all seen (and craved). But before the brand became a lust-worthy label, it was just a modest millinery shop in Paris. Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, whom we know as Coco, changed the course of fashion history when she began her business in 1909. She first rose to popularity during the turn of the century, but shoppers still go wild for the quilted bags and two-toned shoes imagined so long ago.

So how did Chanel grow to become the powerhouse it is today? We looked back on the brand's longstanding history to find out exactly what makes it so special. Because as Coco once said: "I don't do fashion, I am fashion." Read on for a mini history lesson on the brand that transformed women's fashion forever.

The iconic Chanel No. 5 perfume was created in 1921.

Coco reportedly wanted "a woman's perfume with a woman's scent." The iconic bottle's diamond stopper was inspired by Paris's Place Vendome.

She also popularized her eponymous two-toned shoes and gold-chained handbags.

Her accessories, especially handbags, became popular during the brand's resurgence in the 1950s. The quilted bag debuted in February 1955.

And while the classic accessories will continue to rule . . .

You could also invest in a Chanel Hula-Hoop bag from the Spring 2013 collection (which will only set you back $2,400).

The brand continues to expand.

Most recently, it launched jewelry on popular shopping site, which you canshop now.

Jewelry & Watches

piaget watches

A declaration of love, a token of heartfelt affection or the expression of the most intense passion, the rose seductively unfurls her radiant petals to take centre stage on Valentine’s Day. Creative muse of the maison, the Yves Piaget rose reveals her many different sides through the audacious jewellery creations and timepieces of the Piaget Rose collection.

Whether feminine, sophisticated, luscious, playful or delicate, every resplendent flower cultivated in Piaget’s rose garden tells a unique story, a gift that makes the heart beat a little faster.


With intensity and radiance, the ravishing rose becomes the ultimate symbol of unconditional love, while enhancing the beauty in every woman.



For him : A special timepiece to adorn his wrist on Valentine’s Day

Alluring and elegant, a Piaget watch from the Altiplano collection becomes a timeless and unforgettable gift for him on Valentine’s Day.  Conveying the absolute purity and simplicity of love, the Piaget Altiplano watch in white gold with a clean silver dial and 430P hand-wound mechanical movement is a watchmaking classic (G0A29112), while with its pared-down and slender aesthetic, the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph hosts a major horological complication inside a refined pink gold case (G0A40030).


Love is in the air as the rose, source of endless creative inspiration, continues to bloom with abundant charm and elegance. With the promise of never wilting, the ephemeral beauty of the Yves Piaget rose is immortalized in every creation, like the eternal nature of true love.

Frugal Friday: House of Harlow 1960 Warrior Princess Jewels

Jewelry & Watches

Frugal Friday

House of Harlow 1960, Nicole Richie’s Frugal Snob-friendly accessories line, is mixing metals for a collection of pieces that would have even the most stone-faced warrior princesses giddy with excitement. Nicole describes the brand’s target girl as “confident and fun yet still a bit reserved and elegant.” A well-traveled girl like her would wear the Moroccan-inspired Marrakech Souk necklace with anything from a distressed brown leather jacket to a ladylike cocktail dress. Even more likely, she’d go for the bigger statement – the Queen of the Night necklace. In spite of its name, the gold-plated half moon could just as easily make you the queen of the day. It’s like a mini breastplate with spiked ends – the refined way of letting onlookers know that you’re not someone to underestimate. Then there’s the tribal-inspired Traditional Tuareg cuff , also arrowheaded at the ends for emphasis. The mix of gold and silver is just begging for two-toned companion cuffs. Warrior princesses never leave the palace without at least five. Available on Zappos.
