Olympics + Omega

October 5, 2009


With all of the excitement surrounding the recent Olympic announcements (yay, Rio!) I think it’s only appropriate to report on some related timepiece news.

If you didn’t know, Omega has been affiliated with the Olympics since the 1932 Los Angeles games when it was named ‘official timekeeper.’ Although the brand’s contract extended through the 2012 London games, last week they signed back on through at least 2020. The picture above is from the press conference given at the the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland.

And, let’s be honest: Most of us will never score an Olympic medal, but wearing an Omega is a good way to get a little piece of the action, whether gold or silver.

Wrapped in Silk, Hermès-style

October 1, 2009

Hermes scarf 1

If you didn’t manage to nab one of Hermes‘ “Petit Journal de la Soie” inserts in your September magazines, please take a look at a few of the pictures from its pages. I love how the iconic and traditional brand decided to market their new collection of silk this season: with photographs taken in the streets of Paris featuring tons of different ways to wear their scarves.

Check out the model above, who fashions her oversized scarves into a dress and a head wrap. Below, you see men and women accessorizing with scarves and looking extremely chic. You can never go wrong with this accessory for fall, and our selection of Hermes scarves are not only beautiful, but priced to move.
