PARIS — This is what a gold rush looks like in the 21st century. In Paris, that is, during couture week. Starting with gold the metal, back in yellow, it runs the gamut of stones, from the imperial topaz up to a fancy intense yellow diamond, over 30 carats.
Not to neglect the gold-as-an-investment department, the brand-new online jewelry brand Mené unveiled a digital display for its collection of rings, necklaces and cuff bracelets at the Gagosian Gallery, just off the Champs-Elysées. The jewelry sat on shelves that flashed their weight in real-time gold rates, directly linked to their prices, as cofounder Diana W. Picasso and creative director Sunjoo Moon showed the pieces to visitors in a side room of the “Picasso and Maya, Father and Daughter” exhibit.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
