TIME LOCK Cartier is famed for

its iconic watch shapes: the San­tos, Tank, and Bal­lon Bleu. This year’s Clé de Cartier draws from the clean, pure lines of mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture. Its name comes from the sap­phire crown

shaped like a key (or the French clé).

An icon of Bul­gari since the ’60s, and a favourite of El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor’s, the Ser­penti has al­ways played a ma­jor role in the brand’s reper­toire. This year, Bul­gari com­bines the snake with another of its icons to cre­ate the new Ser­penti Tubo­gas col­lec­tion. In­stead of “scales”, the new ser­pents come in the flex­i­ble, tubu­lar lines of the Tubo­gas, which were cre­ated with­out any solder­ing. Bul­gari also pre­sented a High Jew­ellery col­lec­tion dur­ing De­sign Week Mi­lan, with Ser­penti bracelets, rings, and neck­laces cov­ered in

mother-of-pearl and diamond pavé. Flow­ers have al­ways played a part in Jonathan Liang’s col­lec­tions. For Pre-Fall, he zoomed in on the Drac­ula orchid, trans­lat­ing its moody sen­su­al­ity into a cool and wearable wardrobe of knits, leathers, and chif­fon. “It was a study on the struc­ture and blos­som­ing of the orchid; and the sil­hou­ette is rem­i­nis­cent of ’50s rebel style,’ Liang ex­plains. He also fo­cused heav­ily on tex­ture. “We did glazed Lurex, heat-fiber iron-on prints, sun­ray-pleated chif­fon, and

leather lay­ers paired with an­gora.” Ser­penti bracelet in mother- of-pearl and di­a­monds, Bul­gari
