Whether you’re looking for an eye-catching clutch or a statement watch, here are a few must-have new accessories for fall.


Bold and beautiful bags

DOLCE&GABBANA’s new FASHION SINNER bag from FW18 Runway celebrates divas and starlets, channeling the bold charisma from music icons like Rihanna and Beyonce, the Sinner bag catches the eye with multicolour Swarovski crystals, 80s-inspired glam-glow studs, and a slice of hip-hop attitude for good measure.

Love a little retro flair? Roger Vivier’s Club Chain Bag offers sultry shades and textures — think red, black, and exclusive leopard print. Delicate and petite, each evening bag highlights the brand’s signature Strass buckle, featuring fine gold chains crafted into a sophisticated baroque twist. This suede bag can be worn either across the body or on the shoulder, making it perfect for every escapade.

Smart and sophisticated Watches

Driven by the spirit of travel, Vacheron Constantin’s Overseas Small Model is the perfect companion for your next journey. Understated and elegant, the watch comes fitted with interchangeable straps to match your mood. Choose from a luxurious alligator strap for business meetings, a rubber number for outdoorsy days, or a stainless steel bracelet for a romantic rendezvous. Adorned with 84 round-cut diamonds, the watch also features a water-resistant face and signature six-sided stainless steel bezel.

Hailed as the smart watch for the fashion set, Marc Jacobs’ first Riley Touchscreen Smartwatch blends design and accessibility. A polished case encircles a 1.19-inch AMOLED display while a silicone strap provides durability and comfort. Boasting a 24-hour battery life, the sporty timepiece comes in three colours with a variety of customisable watch faces, from digital retro to quirky, depending on your mood. Best part? You can receive notifications, texts, or ring your Google Assistant with a few taps.

Crafted over the course of eight years, the new élégante timepiece by F.P. Journe is a highly intelligent piece of arm candy. To conserve energy, the watch uses a mechanical motion detector that will switch the battery to standby when motionless for 30 minutes. Although the gear and hands stop moving during this time, a microprocessor measures time so you never miss a beat.

Encircled by diamonds, the élégante timepiece is available in a few styles, including a diamond-studded titanium face with rubber straps; 18K red gold face with a silver rose Karung snake strap; and a luxurious version, featuring a platinum case set with your choice of diamonds, rubies, blue sapphires, tsavorites, or black diamonds.

Pair your F.P. Journe élégante watch with a choice of six coloured straps.


Glittering new jewellery

Perfect for both casual nights out and elegant galas, the new Asli Classic Chain Link Collection by John Hardy is full of artisan pieces that showcase intricate layers, flowing chains, sculptural shapes, and touch-me textures.

You’ll gravitate toward the Asli Classic Chain Link silver bib necklace, which pays tribute to classic chain motifs and Balinese design aesthetics with Cleopatra as the muse. The necklaces’ draped layers of chains, graceful design and minimalist nature make this piece an instant classic.
