Salvatore Ferragamo releases F-80 Skeleton Sustainable watch commemorating Earth Day

Filed by Lucire staff/April 5, 2021/12.53

To mark Earth Day 2021 on April 22, Salvatore Ferragamo will release a limited-edition version of one of its watches, but made with low-environmental-impact materials and responsible packaging.
   The F-80 Skeleton Sustainable will be limited to 200 pieces. Its strap is made of post-consumer-recycled PET fibre on the outside and FSC-certified cork on the inside, while the hole covers are made from vegetable-tanned leather.
   Packaging is made of FSC-certified cardboard on the outside, while the wood and metal protective shell is lined with hemp inside, wrapped in post-consumer PET fibre fabric on the outside. The watch support cushion is made from a fully sugar cane-derived bioplastic.
   The automatic movement is housed in a black satin case.
   The watch construction’s climate impact has been measured according to the ISO-14067 Product Carbon Footprint standard. Salvatore Ferragamo has ensured the process is carbon neutral by supporting Rete Clima’s Burgos Wind Project, the largest wind farm in the Philippines.
   The F-80 Skeleton Sustainable is available from April at Salvatore Ferragamo stores, authorized retailers, and online.



 


Van Cleef & Arpels releases six new Perlée designs in Middle East ahead of global launch

Filed by Lucire staff/April 3, 2021/10.41


Van Cleef & Arpels has released six Perlée creations, exclusively for the Middle East first, coinciding with the holy season of Ramadan. They are available now in the region, two months ahead of their official global release.
   The new Perlée additions comprise three bracelets and three rings in gold hues. These feature the sweet clover motif, which are Van Cleef & Arpels’ symbol of luck. They also feature a border of gold beads, characteristic of other jewellery in the Perlée range.
   As the jewellery can be mixed and matched, they can suit a wearer’s every mood.
   The Perlée collection débuted in 2008 and draws on the maison’s history. Accented stones and motifs appeared in the 1920s, and it was also during this decade that Van Cleef & Arpels used the round bead setting in the collection. Golden beads became more ample in 1948. From 1963, in the Twist collection, golden beads appeared in more permutations, accentuating ornamental stones such as lapis lazuli and carnelian, and pearls. Bordering golden beads also appeared in Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection in 1968. The designs have a direct link to these earlier collections.






 


Cole Haan launches fashionable golf footwear collections for spring ’21

Filed by Lucire staff/April 1, 2021/13.47




As a company that believes in accessible style, Cole Haan has launched its first golf footwear collection, débuting for spring 2021 and available now.
   There are three collections with names that Danes might balk at, as Cole Haan takes a character out of their alphabet for stylistic reasons and not pronounciation ones: ØriginalGrand, GrandPrø and Generation Zerøgrand. They link to what Cole Haan calls its Grand 36∅ Design and Engineering System.
   The shoes are spikeless and weatherproof, and aim to have good fit.
   David Maddocks, brand president of Cole Haan, said, ‘With more people golfing than ever, Cole Haan set out to democratize the game. Our customers have asked us for years to make performance golf shoes, however we knew we couldn’t simply offer something on par with the market-place. We believe we’ve set a new standard with an alchemy that combines superior performance, long-lasting comfort, and confident style that goes straight to the clubhouse. We have written new rules when it comes to both men’s and women’s golf footwear.’
   The range includes the ØriginalGrand golf shoe, which has an Oxford look; while the GrandPrø AM golf sneaker has a sneaker style with a variety of prints. These are available in men’s and women’s sizing. The Generation Zerøgrand golf sneaker, exclusive to men, blends athletic and dress shoe æsthetics.
   Chief creative officer Scott Patt added, ‘Golfers need comfortable, supportive, and stylish footwear that performs on and off the course. ‘We’re excited to introduce an assortment of styles that are exceptionally lightweight, cushioned, and are engineered with proprietary multi-directional traction that takes golfers from the course to the clubhouse.’
   Prices range from US$140 to US$170, and the collection is available through colehaan.com, in select Cole Haan stores, and Golf Galaxy and Dick’s Sporting Goods.


 


The Outlierman commemorates 60 years of the Jaguar E-type with luxury fashion accessories

Filed by Jack Yan/March 25, 2021/11.21





Andrea Mazzuca, co-founder of the Outlierman, is a huge motoring enthusiast, so it’s no surprise his company was going to let the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar E-type, one of the British marque’s most iconic models, pass unnoticed. The Outlierman has released a range of accessories commemorating the anniversary, with scarves, T-shirts, pocket squares and silk ties, all handmade in Italy by its skilled artisans.
   As profiled by us last year, the Outlierman’s luxury driving accessories are made by artisans whose world-class quality suits the most discerning customers—and who has managed to attract Bentley and Pagani as exclusive partners.
   Mazzuca notes, ‘The Jaguar E-type is one of my most favourite cars—the elegance, style and panache are all unrivalled. It’s a car I’ve loved ever since I was a child so naturally, to celebrate the 60th anniversary, I knew the Outlierman had to pay tribute in the only way we knew best—by producing the E-type’s very own collection.’
   In addition, the Outlierman has a Rent & Drive service, which has a classic car fleet comprising two Jaguar E-types. But if they’re not your cup of tea, there’s a 1956 W154 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, a.k.a. the Gullwing, a 1961 Maserati 3500 GT Vignale Spyder, a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL roadster, a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, and a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT California short-wheelbase Spyder. Rates-wise, the E-types are bargains, with both a Series I and a Series III on offer.—Jack Yan, Founder and Publisher

Filed by Lucire staff/March 19, 2021/0.33



Dr Martens and Suicoke have collaborated on two sandals, which fuse the former’s Lorsan sandal with of the latter’s mainline silhouettes.
   The capsule collection comprises the Boak (NZ$360) and the Depa (NZ$340), made from Dr Martens’ Black Smooth leather. The sandals feature both companies’ branding, clip buckles on the Boak and Suicoke’s pull-tab on the Depa, and finished with Dr Martens’ heel tab and yellow welt stitching.
   Suicoke said in a press statement, ‘Dr Martens and Suicoke share a mutual understanding and unique approach to design that consistently challenges creative development—utilizing only the highest-quality materials.
   â€˜We don’t design to a specific demographic, but simply to make something special. It shouldn’t be distinguished from us but rather by the consumer. They are the ones with the freedom and right to choose the product if it fits their lifestyle.’
   In New Zealand, Area 51 retails the capsule collection.

 


Jewellery trends for 2021

Filed by Lucire staff/March 18, 2021/0.45

If you’re one of those fashion-forward girls who love to keep up with the latest trends no matter what—welcome to the club, you aren’t the only one! Here are the four hottest jewellery trends you need to know about in 2021, so keep on reading, check them out, and enjoy!

Mismatched earrings are all the rage
Mismatched earrings are the first jewellery trend that will be all the rage in 2021. These were a big part of this year’s fashion weeks, as many prominent designers and well known brands had them in their latest collections. The good news is that these come in so many sizes, shapes, and amazing styles. For example, you can opt for a simple stud earring in one ear and a stunning drop earring in the other. If you prefer hoops, you should definitely match two earrings of different sizes. Possibilities are truly infinite, but you know what? Their biggest advantage is that you don’t have to buy a brand new pair of mismatched earrings. All you need to do is to combine earrings from two different pairs, and voilà—you’re rocking one of the biggest jewellery trends in 2021!

Colourful beads are making a huge comeback …

If you’re a fan of flamboyant jewellery, you’ll be thrilled to hear that gorgeous colourful beads are making a huge comeback this year! That’s right, so don’t wait any longer and add a pop of colour to your everyday combos. For example, a simple choker made from vibrantly coloured beads is a perfect choice for all the ladies who want to add a twist to their outfits, but without going overboard with it. However, if you want to make your choker more summer-friendly, just add several shell pendants to it. These will certainly do the trick! On the other hand, if you love your arm candy more than anything, be sure to layer a dozen bracelets made from colourful beads. These are beyond perfect for hot summer days, so give them a try and you won’t make a mistake!

… As well as beautiful vintage pieces
Truth be told, vintage jewellery will never go out of style. Those pieces are here to stay, and guess what? They will be a huge part of this year’s fashion trends, too! So, if you have unique pieces of jewellery your Mom or Grandma used to wear, make sure to look for these and incorporate them into your looks ASAP! However, if you don’t have such pieces at your disposal, you should definitely buy at least one of them this year. For example, a lovely diamond locket is all you could ask for when it comes to beautiful vintage jewellery. What’s particularly special about this locket is that it can hold two tiny photos. You can wear this piece either on a short necklace or on a long one. We highly recommend wearing it on a longer necklace for a much better visual effect!

Everyone loves statement chain necklaces

On the other hand, if you love bold pieces of jewellery that can catch everyone’s attention, you shouldn’t skip statement chain necklaces this year! These have been gaining a lot of popularity over the last few months, which is why you should pay extra attention to them. What’s so interesting about them is the fact that they are quite simple when it comes to design. However, they are very edgy and eye-catching, too, which is exactly what makes them so wanted—both in haute couture and in street fashion. Apart from chain chokers, there are also chain necklaces of different lengths and sizes you can choose from. Of course, the most popular colour this year is gold, so be sure to get a chunky chain necklace in this bold shade. Trust us when we say that you won’t make a mistake with it!
   As you can tell, there are so many fabulous jewellery trends you can keep up with this year. These four are just some of them, so bear them in mind and stick to a trend that’s the closest to your personal style and preferences. One thing is certain—you won’t go wrong whichever trend you choose to for. It’s a promise!—Peter Minkoff
