Style

Game time.

The association between fine watches and the sporting world has been in place for a long time. Each and every year at Baselworld, something new and exciting comes to the forefront.

Beauty in history.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: Peter Carl Fabergé was commissioned by Czar Alexander III to create the very first jewelled Imperial Easter egg as a 20th-anniversary present to his wife, who was said to have been so enchanted with it that the eggs became an annual tradition to the Russian court.

Brand builder.

Fashion industry heavyweight Marie Holman Rao is responsible for the construction of some of the retail world’s biggest names. The creation of private label 424 Fifth for Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor is the most recent addition.

Sneaker style.

In Swims’ lightweight Luca sneaker, going from a stroll through the park to a meeting in the city is a smooth transition—no change of footwear required.

The 2014 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Collection.

The annual Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Collection arrives in step with the spring season. Vibrant and rare gems provide a full palette of colours and capture the delicacy of flowers, reminiscent of a Georges Seurat painting.

It’s a rare fashionista who has not rubbed shoulders with Italian style.

NUVO at Baselworld.

Alain Delamuraz is in high demand at Baselworld. As Blancpain’s vice president and head of marketing, his insights and knowledge are sought after, and he moves fairly quickly from one private showing room to another, pretty much all day long.

NUVO at Baselworld.

A brand that knows well how to keep its message unfettered and alive is Chanel. Its presence at Basel is an impressive one, a star among stars.

Roman treasures.

In 1884, Sotirio Boulgaris, then a budding jeweller, opened his first shop at Via Sistina 85 on the fashionable promenade leading to Piazza Trinità dei Monti at the top of the Spanish Steps.
