Donatella Versace took a break Saturday from her Versus show prep to unveil the latest DV One watches above the rooftops of Milan at the Terrazza Martini. The DV One Cruise group, produced by Timex, features a limited edition that draws inspiration from the vivid color scheme of her fall ready-to-wear collection. The sporty chic timepiece has blue and purple silicone straps, a red face and black bezel. There are two versions, one with a simple black bezel (99 will be produced) and one adorned with 18-karat gold, sapphires and a smattering of rubies — only three exist, one of which is adorning Versace’s wrist at the moment. The limited editions will be available starting in October. In November, six more bold oversize styles will hit stores. Highlights of that edition — which is not limited — are the pink, yellow and turquoise watches with pavé topaz stone bezels and coordinating alligator straps.

@maybelline’s Kanako Takase had snow bunnies in mind when creating the beauty look for @philipppleininternational. Playing off of the bedazzled snowboards in the collection, Takase mixed two highlighters together for a luminous sheen. #wwdbeauty #nyfw (📷: @jilliansollazzo)
“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry.
