TOKYO — A young yet powerful jewelry brand from Monaco with a strong presence across Europe and Asia is making its first entry into Japan with a newly opened store in the upscale shopping district of Ginza. APM Monaco is hoping to appeal to fashionable Japanese women with its fun yet elegant range of silver jewelry.
Founded in 1982 by Ariane Prette, the company spent three decades designing and manufacturing fine jewelry for many of the world’s top brands. Now that Ariane’s son, Philippe, has taken over as chief executive officer, his wife Kika serves as creative director. She is the force behind APM Monaco as a brand, which for the past seven years has created unique yet affordable pieces from sterling silver and cubic zirconia. Some of its earring studs cost as little as $1 while most of the collection is priced below $200.
As 2018 comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the best party photos of the year. First up, newlyweds Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra in black tie at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show in September.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
