John Varvatos autumn/winter 2013 collection is all about creating a bridge between opposite universe, crossbreeding English dandyism with New York modern coolness. He mixed different texture –smooth and rough materials. The new tailored silhouette has a subtle hourglass shape, a stronger shoulder and boot-cut trousers. Eye and touch are constantly stimulated: traditional patterns such as herringbone and checks are brushed away on short coats; knit is bonded with leather on an overcoat to get a firm feel; needlepunched shirts mix knit and fabric. Bouclè knits add more texture, while suits are also cut in knitted fabric. The used brushed tweeds, artisan finished leathers, hand knit sweaters and washed velvet shoes created a timeless and modern sophisticated elegance.

 The collection is sophisticatedly rough, with a richly tactile quality.

This year will be the year of the water snake according to Chinese Zodiac.  Snake Years are sixth in the cycle, following the Dragon Years, and recur every twelfth year. According to ancient Chinese wisdom, Snake is a good omen because it brings prosperity and wealth.  Snakes also symbolize intelligence, diplomacy and grace especially in business environment.
Many people considered wearing snake jewelry or accessory as a lucky charm, so luxury brands created some gorgeous accessory/jewelry collection for this coming Chinese New Year.

A jewelery collection dedicated to the iconic Boucheron serpent, protective spirit and symbol of eternity.
Delicately sculpted and polished ,this Toi et Moi Serpent ring celebrates the love between Frédéric Boucheron and his wife Gabrielle: it is a reminder of the jewel he gave her in 1878 which was also a symbol of protection. The grain setting that adorns the jewel adds exquisite detail and expresses the expert precision of the jeweler.The heads of the serpents cross to symbolize the eternal bind between two lovers. 

Bracelet set with pavé diamonds, in white gold curled around itself, this protective serpent symbolizes rebirth. The craftsman has reproduced the singular aspect of the serpent’s skin by sculpting the gold of this strikingly supple bracelet. The jewel wraps around the wrist and becomes the faithful companion of every moment.

Boucheron pays homage to one of its iconic symbols, the Serpent, in a new version of a 1970 jewelry piece. The serpent’s skin is represented by raised gold shavings that imitate its scales.
The vintage allure of the Serpent Bangle bracelet adds the perfect touch to a woman with confident style.


Bvlgari created the distinctive Serpenti collection that draws inspiration from the power and dynamism of the serpent: Destined to become a new icon of Bulgari design, the sinuous and flexible form of the creature lends itself to a variety of jewels and magnificent timepieces.
