Say the word “smartwatch” and people tend to think of sleek, black timepieces that techno-geeks love to sport. But now that reputable watchmakers have decided to get in on the digital action, there’s just about a design for any watch lover. There’s Montblanc’s Summit watch, which combines the brand’s watchmaking know-how with Android Wear™ 2.0 under the guise of Montblanc’s vintage-inspired 1858 collection.
Then, there’s TAG Heuer’s Connected Modular 45, the brand’s second smartwatch with a new modular concept that allows its wearer to switch from a smartwatch to mechanical watch easily. Or for a smartwatch with all of the smarts for less of a price, look to Michael Kors’ Access collection for a healthy smartwatch and hybrid smartwatch range.
Monroe may have been singing about diamonds, but it was Swarovski crystals that adorned her in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). The same goes for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), thanks to Swarovski’s reputation for being the go-to brand for silver screen bling since the 1930s. Its latest campaign sees the Austrian crystal house tipping its hat to that rich Hollywood heritage with Karlie Kloss—decked in Swarovski’s Summer collection—re-enacting these two film’s most emblematic scenes with a 21st-century twist. The results are as glamorous as they are fun-loving.
