CRYSTAL MOMENT: Swarovski is telling time. The Austrian crystal brand is launching a watch collection in April at Switzerland’s Baselworld, hitting stores for spring. The centerpiece of the line is the Octea Sport, a stainless steel sporty style with a quartz calibre movement. Each piece features crystal facets and accents for which the brand is known.
“This collection is aimed at the multifaceted woman,” said Swarovski creative director Nathalie Colin. “It is inspired by life, by day, by night, by each moment lived by this independent and modern, fashion-conscious woman.”
The timepieces will retail for about $750 at Swarovski’s 200 doors nationwide and select watch retailers.
LAMBERTSON ONLINE: Lambertson Truex is launching its first e-commerce site, lambertsontruex.com. The site will feature men’s and women’s accessories collections, as well as showcase the season’s bestsellers and limited edition styles.
“The online boutique was a natural next step for the brand,” said John Truex, co-founder and co-creative director. “The site has beautiful, rich visuals of the products and is easy to navigate.”
Among fall bags featured on the site is the Large Mia, an oversize leopard print tote, and the Barclay Business Brief, a leather men’s bag.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
