Saying it with flowers

Luxury craftsmanship meets the whimsicality of hand-placed leather blooms on a charming little silhouette that reimagines a beloved Coach design from the 1970s.

The bag is crafted in modern glove-tanned cowhide with an iconic turnlock and a chain strap woven through with a slender ribbon of leather and embellished with intricate embroidery, rivets, faux pearls and pyramid studs all on a cool cluster of die-cut flowers 

Birkin in the bag

Rebecca Minkoff introduces a new Holiday and Resort collection inspired by actress Jane Birkin’s living embodiment of elegant nonchalance and her fearless, yet feminine allure. Denim balances ’70s floral while Breton stripes give a nautical nod. Studded leather jackets casually drape over anything. And there’s fluidity and structure in all the right places. Handbags come with statement details like studded top-handles and vintage-inspired metal accents to dress up quiet moments. 

Wonder for the wrist

Inspired by a strong and unmistakable signature, the Heure H, created in 1996 under the creative impetus of the designer Philippe Mouquet, the new Heure H is a style that does not follow convention. Its case epitomises a bold and joyful sense of companionship. And now, its capital H is filled with black or white lacquer. Its dial, varnished in black or white, has also been treated with lacquer, in this instance translucent so as to better reveal the pigments it protects. The strap colours, eight in all, alternate the depth of black or white with the vibrancy of red, orange, yellow, blue. The watch comes with an interchangeable strap to suit the wearer’s mood and is available in two versions: the Simple Tour (once- round) and the Double Tour (twice round) – a Hermes emblem invented by Martin Margiela. The lacquered Heure H is available in two sizes: medium and small.
