A few folds here and there – as shown by the folks at Skagen – takes seasonal decoration to new heights. These beautiful stars are well worth the time they take, but are perhaps best done with a cosy cup of hot chocolate to sip on. Let’s watch the video: Skagen Holiday Ornament

It’s a pretty safe bet that when you want to add a new watch your wardrobe you’ll be offered a few strap options. Let’s see: There’s classic leather, metals, either mesh or bracelets and nylon. Occasionally we see a high-tech ceramic or sometimes rubber. But this is the first time we’ve ever seen felt! Spreading a little homespun Nordic charm, Skagen has just debuted it’s Anchor lines complete with felt strap. According to the brand, we should think of felt, which is made from heat-treated wool, as a fabric version of leather: it’s durable and comfortable. But we also think…

The hologram effect goes underground, or, perhaps, on ground for winter. Several fashion brands have showed oil slick looks that feature black or grey backgrounds with superimposed rainbow-effect shine. But unless your look is all out grunge or you are a car mechanic, oil slick is fairly difficult to pull off on clothes. Accessories, however, are the perfect platform for this particularly trend to shine. Imagine oil-look Doc Martin boots and a hefty chain, or pitch another season must-have, the slouchy skirt, with Diesel’s Flare, which pretties the look by using iridescent crushed stone on its dial. Adidas also honors…

His and hers wardrobing is hardly new, but nerdish connotations normally means it’s a concept left in the dark. Emporio Armani’s Alpha line campaign pulls off matching cool for girls and guys. The ads feature two chiseled cheeked models with almost matching hairdos and complimentary wardrobes, windswept and sexy in a brooding beach setting. Adorning each of their wrists are partner watches from the Alpha platform, including on-trend black dial and gold detail and another with an urban camo design. The watches, sleek, simple and sophisticated, show there’s nothing goofy in co-ed co-ordination.

Q: “I’d like a rose gold watch for party season, but I’m confused. Is rose gold as good quality as regular gold?” – Venus Chan, Hong Kong A: There’s been much hubbub about rose gold watches of late, and the trend looks set to endure so if you are considering a rose gold watch you’ll be bang on trend. Rose gold is in fact a ‘real’ gold. It’s created by mixing 24 karat yellow gold mixed with other metals-most notably, copper, which gives rose gold that fabulous pink glow. It doesn’t tarnish, either, for long lasting good looks. With that…

As temperatures finally begin to drop, and, in certain locales anyways, leaves are crunched underfoot, it’s easy to get caught in a rustic fall palette–all burnt amber and red glow unless you are Emporio Armani. The Italian brand flexes its fashion heritage with a decidedly cooler air for fall this season. Color blocking comes to the Alpha watch range, with aubergine, teal and slate grey offering a refined and sophisticated take on fall/winter. Straps and dial in matching shades make a strong style statement, and we can’t help but think how you could take the style further pairing key cool…

Take a look at three seductive moodboards from Michael Kors’ Fall accessories line. The first is a vintage-meets-prepster look, injected with bold pops of colour and acetate hues. We love the citrus cashmere against leopard skin. Jewels, precious metals and a strong silhouette in the second look is iconic Kors. Watches in this feminine, jewel-encrusted look are almost architectural, with elegant metallic bracelets and diamond-laden bezels in silver, gold and rose gold. Animal-pattern dials, black pave stones and shimmering gold imbue the Slim Runway watch collection. One standout model fuses a gold- and black-plated bracelet with zebra-print, stone-set dial. See…

Camo has been trending for a few seasons but until now we hadn’t heard of its pixelated version. Stealth research into the battlefield though, shows armies are adopting digitized designs in droves as it’s becomes proven that certain patterns allow greater concealment than traditional prints. So with its Arges release, Diesel forges new territory–and a new age of camo. We can’t help but love those pops of neon peeking through on the dial, either.

But only 500 lucky collectors will get their hands on one limited edition piece, and the Robinson is a real scene-stealer.

Tory Burch’s new scene stealing release had us oohing and aahing over their fabulous double T-flouting designs, but they carry another prestigious motif as well–the words ‘Swiss Made’. What is so special about a “Swiss Made” watch? About 400 years ago, religion in Switzerland made wearing jewellery illegal. Instead, goldsmiths worked on producing exquisite watches, in turn creating the Swiss watch industry. Now, alongside Swiss chocolate and Swiss baking, Swiss watches are considered some of the best in the world. A ‘Swiss Made’ watch ensures a watch has been pieced together in Switzerland, in a location that has built its…

The Karl Daily ‘exposes’ the new line of watches in a series of spreads, putting each piece in the spotlight. Darkened dials look effortless, with pared back details a perfect compliment alongside the season’s strong preference for geometric stripes this fall and winter.

Stackable and stylish. Links on the wristwatch give…

This new edition to Diesel’s Daddy’s range is a real knockout (quite literally, were to come into contact with it in the wrong kind of way – like a wrist-to-chin kinda way). The hefty 57mm black stainless steel case size immediately draws the eye to this bad boy, but then those clever designers at Diesel filled the dial with intricate metallic details that offer plenty more to gaze at.

Whether prominent or peephole, it seems this season designers have been getting snip happy and cut outs are everywhere. Depending how they are worn, cut outs can mean high exposure or a demure way to show off skin, and in the case of perforated bags and shoes, punching holes is a creative way to explore pattern.

Packed into the new Mini Daddy’s tighter frame are dual-time dials, sleek design and exciting colorways. Good looks rank just as high off-dial too with choices of leather or steel bands, and a brushed polish adding gloss to sturdy cases. The new sizing suits those who want the rugged appeal of the larger models without weighing down the wrist, and these work exceptionally well on anyone of a slimmer build.

Most of us know ceramics as plates or cups, and can’t imagine how that’s the same stuff that makes watches. Well, it is and it isn’t the same stuff. Watchmakers use a different type of ceramic made from metal, gas and carbon to make their watches. Ceramic is a crazy hard material, at least three to four times harder than stainless steel, and is almost impossible to scratch. The great thing ceramic is that it is also light—this valuable combination is why ceramic watches are used to make high-grade military watches and can even travel in space. But watch out!…
