You don’t have to be a bonafide Florence + the Machine fan to see that frontliner Florence Welch’s vintage eclectic style makes her a perfect match to Gucci’s Alessandro Michele’s aestheticism.
Which makes the news of Welch being the face of Gucci’s watches and jewellery no big surprise at all. As the fiery headed singer said of her new ambassadorship: “I am a magpie, and when Alessandro and I first met we bonded over our love of jewellery. I truly believe that what he is creating at Gucci today is magic, and I am so excited to be part of it.”
To mark its second year partnership with amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, Harry Winston has created two limited edition Countdown to a Cure timepieces to benefit the organisation’s campaign of the same name. Only 20 timepieces for men and women each are going to be produced, with 20 percent of their sales benefitting amfAR. The watches, which belong to the brand’s timeless Midnight collection, are available exclusively at Harry Winston stores worldwide.
