Phils Technology Co Ltd is capturing current trends in its wide selection of fashion jewellery made of cut-out metal. One of the company’s latest collections is a series of earrings and pendants in nature-inspired and geometric designs. The patterns are characterised by clean lines and open shapes, lending an airiness and cohesiveness to the pieces.

“Our design inspiration is derived from fast fashion,” the fashion jewellery maker said. “We incorporate natural motifs into our collections, which is an attractive counterpoint to the contemporary feel of our products.”

Phils Technology has an in-house design team and manufacturing facility, which allows it to offer competitive pricing and quick turnaround time, and to be deeply committed to quality assurance in its processes, it added.

Luxury fashion house Dior melded the past and the present in its Cruise 2021 Collection, which debuted at a runway show – and broadcast to a remote audience – in Puglia in southern Italy.

 

Models, who observed social distancing on the catwalk, showed off standout resort season looks, including dreamy dresses with leather corsets, lace frocks and long skirts with floral appliques. 

Not to be missed are the accessories: Head scarves and bands, signature handbags in brown and beige, leather cuff bracelets and nature-inspired jewellery.

 

“During this period, I sought to give collective efforts a new dimension. Despite the disadvantages of distance, bringing a different perspective to our daily lives has given us strength and imagination,” Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior, says in a media release. For the Cruise show, Chiuri chose to reconnect her creative passion with the region of Puglia, which she described as a place close to her heart.

Highlighted in the Cruise 2021 show were enduring symbols of Puglia’s rich heritage from its textile arts (delicate weaves and lace embellishments were evident on various pieces) to the illustrations of artist Pietro Ruffo, who produced more than 250 illustrations over three months for the resort collection.

If there is an accessory that some people cannot do without, it’s that everyday timepiece that can add polish to any outfit.

Marie Claire recently published a list of watches, which it believed had an “irresistible” appeal to women everywhere.

The list included the Museum Classic watch from Movado, which is singled out for its minimalist appeal. The timepiece has a 28mm stainless steel case with a matching black calfskin strap. Also making it to the list is the Women’s Mini Carlie Green watch from Fossil, which is a standout with its matching forest green leather strap and burnished gold-tone case with a crystal-accent topping.

The Tilda Watch from Tory Burch, featuring gold-plated chain links inlaid with genuine lapis stone, can easily take one’s look to a whole new level. Another notable find is Bruno Magli’s timepiece, Women’s Diana 1301 Diamond Bracelet Watch, which channels a vintage feel but not the price.
