SHOP FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL

Jewellery:

Les Galaxies de Cartier

Cartier has designed a collection of limited-edition jewellery pieces based around a singular theme. This exercise in style launches with a creative exploration of the cosmos. Through design and craftsmanship, weightlessness and gravity, reality and fantasy, Cartier investigates the borders of what is possible through four worlds connected to space. Everything turns around these jewellery comets, with their geometric, sensual design that experiments with shapes and materials.

Perfume: 

Imitation – By Amouage

An interpretation of those rare moments when life mirrors art, Imitation is the highly anticipated fourth chapter of the second cycle of the Amouage narrative by Creative Director, Christopher Chong. An intensely personal exploration of New York City in the 1970s, Imitation is inspired by Chong’s childhood memories and his first experiences of a city filled with graffiti, neon lights and a boiling pot of cultures, shaped the way he sees and understands art today.
