As fashion weeks around the globe are coming to a close it can be overwhelming trying to make sense of what’s hot in New York, Milan and Paris. With styles coming at you from every runway, sifting through what’s genuinely hot and what is just simulacrum can become daunting. This month we examine a couple of styles that we think are the real deal and are guaranteed to be must haves this coming spring. Naturally, we suggest our favorite timepieces to truly complete the look.
Ralph Lauren: On night seven of NYFW, Ralph Lauren held his show outside of his flagship store on Madison Avenue. One of the reasons he did this is one we can totally get behind- all of his looks for Spring 2017 are instantly wearable. With the sidewalk as the runaway and the store’s facade as the backdrop, Ralph Lauren’s spring looks speak to today’s consumer who values the instant gratification and immediate wearability of next season’s fashions. His show featured his iconic look- the all American classic style with a twist of Western cowboy chic- think stylized suede, fringe and plaid. Perhaps the most surprising thing post-show, the flagship store opened for guests of the show to immediately start shopping the designs. For an American fashion icon we think the perfect watch to compliment this accessible, yet haute style is unquestionably Rolex’s Yacht-Master. The 18k rose gold with chocolate dial embodies the classic American look while emphasizing style, elegance and prestige. The combination of Ralph Lauren’s classic style and Rolex’s unsurpassed notability is the perfect match.
Bottega Veneta: One (of the many) things that caught our eye at Milan Fashion Week was not the extravagant and extreme gestures of the majority of the designers. In fact it was quite the opposite. What had us paying attention was the designer who resorted to a simpler message, reminding us what fashion week is really all about: the clothes. Bottega Veneta combined current fashion highlights mixed with elegant, timeless looks. With an emphasis on leather, Bottega Veneta’s collection was one that could easily be worn across generations, lending an air of quiet sophistication across the collection. The perfect timepiece to pair with this look is Patek Philippe’s Nautilus. Firmly establishing itself as both a classic and desirably elegant watch, the Nautilus is one of the most sought after timepieces available. The flattering design preserves the original Patek Philippe design elements helping to create an enviable timepiece guaranteed to assert and confirm your appreciation for style and prestige.
Karl Lagerfeld: According to Lagerfeld at the Chanel show, tech is the new black. With a nod to the necessity of technology in our lives, Karl Lagerfeld filled the show with cables, wires, data boxes and robots. While the set was futuristic, the fashion conveyed a youthful, in-touch feeling as guests witnessed styles that were both avant-garde yet nostalgic. We appreciate the all encompassing feeling of the Chanel show as Lagerfeld conveyed a narrative that acknowledged the past while looking ahead to the future. With this in mind we think the IWC Big Pilot is a great timepiece to pair with this look. With its iconic design and modern technology, the Big Pilot combines the best of both worlds. In the same way Chanel has become a highly coveted designer, the rose gold Big Pilot Brazil model is so desired it is sure to impress both timepiece aficionados and fashion mavens alike. A must have for your collection, IWC embraces their roots while looking ahead to the future of watch design.
