The appeal of a watch completely encrusted in gems is obvious—but a face full of gems leaves little room to tell time. Christian Tse has solved this problem with the Prismatic timepiece collection, his fi rst foray into watches. Each piece features a full-frontal assault of glitz—diamonds, tsavorites, amethysts and sapphires, in some instances forming motifs such as the Union Jack or a heart—through which a digital LED time display shines at the touch of a button. They range in price from $7,900 to $19,000 and soon will include custom options. The inspiration behind the 30-piece collection was simple enough: “I had wanted to light up diamonds in jewelry,” Tse says.
“I’ve struggled my whole life to find a bathing suit that fits me that doesn’t look like a maternity bra. I’m proud of the line because it’s an accurate representation of me rather than me putting on someone else’s clothes,” says @atlantabean of her swimwear collaboration with @piaarrobio, LPA X ATL. The two decided on a swimwear collab and increased the industry standard size for the pieces. Read more about the line — and our interview with de Cadenet Taylor and Arrobio — on WWD.com #wwdfashion
