Remembering Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta and Anna Wintour

We’re remembering the life and legacy of the great designer, Oscar de la Renta today.  We were saddened to hear of his passing yesterday.  It’s been wonderful to read all of the incredible tributes from designers and all those who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him.  He’s certainly forever left his mark in the design world and will always be remembered and cherished in fashion history as one of the greatest American designers of all time. We hope you will take the time to read this touching tribute from Vogue‘s editor in chief, Anna Wintour.

Harper’s Bazaar shared the most iconic red carpet looks through the decades from Oscar de la Renta here – along with some of the designer’s most inspiring quotes.

New Tory Burch Watches

tory burch watch 1

Tory Burch shares the scoop on her new watch line on her blog – read the excerpt here.

 

Tell us about the watch collection. What inspired it?
 
TB: I’m so excited about it. It’s inspired by vintage jewelry, color, art and travel — all the things I love.
 
 
What can we expect?
 
TB: The collection includes seven groups, made with the highest level of Swiss artisanship and precision — that was really important to us, to have that level of craftsmanship that these watches would last as long as the ones my parents and grandparents had. We incorporated our favorite design elements: fretwork, geometric designs, a touch of saffiano leather (in the straps) and our double-T logo.
 
 
How did you come up with the names?
 
TB: I love bringing in a personal aspect to our designs. The watches are named after my parents Buddy and Reva Robinson, and two of my children, Izzie and Sawyer. The Sawyer — which I’m wearing here — is inspired by a favorite vintage cuff I have, but it’s named after my youngest son… but I always say he’s an old soul, so it worked!
 
 
Do you have favorites?
 
TB: I really like them all. We spent so long perfecting and tweaking them. I wear our Tory (not just because it’s named after me) — I love that it’s a masculine, bold shape that we made just a little bit more delicate. Perfectly tomboy. Our Robinson is limited edition, to celebrate our company’s 10-year anniversary. It’s like a piece of jewelry, with elements pulled from our archive (like fretwork and brass). There are only 500 and each is signed and numbered on the case back.
 
 
What are some cool details that make these watches stand out?
 
TB: Each watch has a distinct personality and a different set of details. The Reva, for instance, comes with either single- or double-wrap Italian leather straps, and we wanted a wide array of colors. The Izzie’s square case is inlaid with fretwork. The smooth, geometric cases of the Buddy are a strong, geometric design that we did either smooth or etched with a grid.
 
 
How are you celebrating the launch?
 
TB: We put together a really fun film, directed by James Lima. Set to The Way I Feel by Bestfriends, it takes you through a metaphoric day in the life of our models. And we have a special issue dedicated just to the idea of time on Tory Daily this week. It’s a good topic of discussion!

Hermès Spring-Summer 2015

Hermes 01

After three years as the Hermès designer, Christophe Lemaire presented his last show this week during Paris Fashion Week to focus on his own signature label. Each look of the spring-summer 2015 collection offered a level of elegant nonchalance. The pieces were unfussy yet offered the ultimate dose of effortless chic. We certainly couldn’t pick a favorite piece if we tried.

Harry Winston’s New Global Ad Campaign

unnamed-1

This October, Harry Winston will debut a new global advertising campaign inspired by its New York City heritage.  The new campaign concept mimics the reflections and facets of a diamond and features Harry Winston  jewels set against a backdrop of New York City’s most iconic landmarks – including the House’s historic Fifth Avenue salon.  The ads feature bridal jewelry, high jewelry, and more. “In developing our new campaign, we wanted to create a concept that brought the true essence and authenticity of the Harry Winston brand to life,” said Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston, Inc. “New York City has always been at the heart of the brand’s story.  It is the city where Mr. Winston founded his company in 1932, and today remains home to our flagship salon, workshop, design studio and archives.   The new campaign not only serves as a treasured reminder of our past, but also underscores our continued commitment to uphold the esteemed legacy of the House, as we look to write its future.”
