What's hot

Get hammered



South Korean actress Yoon Eun-hye is the new face of jewellery firm Cartier, presenting its Juste un clou collection of bracelets and rings, originally conceived by Aldo Cipullo in the 1970s. Now there's a modern minimalist design echoing the shape of a carpenter's nail.

Cartier hits the nail on the head with an oval of solid gold atop the nail head and the rhythmic, feminine spiral of the bracelet. Hardware is reinvented as jewellery, in yellow, white or pink gold, natural or paved with diamonds, in large and small sizes.

Drawn from life

Clothing designer Anurak Thangsomboon turns his hand to sculpting in tree branches, light bulbs, wineglasses, door keys and other objects in the exhibition "Burning Sunlight" at the Ardel Gallery of Modern Art. It opens today at 6.30pm and continues through September.

Anurak's mixed media portray human suffering and desire in modern society, drawn from his own life lessons. Find out more at www.ArdelGallery.com.

Funny moments

British wristwatch brand Breo's Roam Twist collection was designed to be fun and quirky, yet classic.

The strap is fabulously fashionable in lime green, shocking pink and turquoise, made of tourmaline and soft rubber. The 17-gram watch is durable enough for sports and water-resistant even deep under the sea.

Do the Roam Twist for Bt1,400 at any Breo counter in department stores, including Siam Paragon and CentralWorld.
