We all know the story to Valentines’ Day!  It is a day to shower your love ones with chocolates, gifts and thoughtful surprises to remind them of your love! On the other hand, White Day is a relatively new phenomenon. Created by the confectionery industry in Japan, White Day was first celebrated in 1978 in Japan. In 1977 a Fukuoka-based confectionery company, Ishimura Manseido, marketed marshmallows to men on March 14, calling it “Marshmallow Day” (マシュマロデー). While Marshmallow Day did not succeed as a cultural phenomenon, the National Confectionery Industry Association (全国飴菓子工業協同組合) established White Day as an “answer day” or…

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.

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.

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…

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…

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.

So lately we’ve been talking up blue dials, but now it looks like a new hue may be attempting to muscle in. Catwalks this season were alive with refreshing green, from lime to laurel, and at Baselworld—where new watch trends are born annually—several super high-end watch brands displayed prototype green dials. Ever hot off the catwalk, Michael Kors is one of the first designers the take the trend from dress to dial. The new Skylar chrono pairs a deep green dial with gold finish and diamonds. It’s an elegant combination that more than competes with the blues we’ve been loving…

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. Inspired by Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Skeleton watches which feature cut out logos on the dial, we take a look at some hole-some pieces among this summer’s big trend.   JCrew laser-cut shirt in neon Soure: https://www.jcrew.com/womens_feature/NewArrivals/shirtstops/ PRDOVR~B0730/B0730.jsp      River Island Turqoise…

At “just” 46mm, Diesel scales down on its tough-guy oversize Daddy series, but this isn’t a watch for softies. 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. The scrappy quartz watch is even water resistant to 30 metres,…

Swiss-made Zodiac is back with a futuristic limited edition. We celebrate! We were so excited to see the newest launch by Zodiac. The brand has been making Swiss watches since 1882, and in 1969 launched one of its most celebrated designs. Called Astrographic, the watch featured floating minute and hour hands, and a small red moon that orbits the dial as the seconds tick by. That watch seems to capture all that felt cosmic and mysterious about the 60’s and the intrepid search by many to send man to the moon. Now the company has released one of it’s most…

Maybe it’s to do with summer’s blue skies, or the thought of going to the beach and dipping their toes in the ocean waves, but blue watch faces are definitely trending with the fashion pack. Then again, why are we surprised? Blue is a style no-brainer. Bringing a bright style swash to the watch wardrobe, a blue face goes equally well with pale or tan skin, and equally well with pale and tan outfits. Go simple in a white tee and jeans and let your watch do the talking, or try pairing a blue shirt cuff alongside a blue watch,…

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!…
