Watch enthusiast and actor, Nicholas Holt, chose to engrave his son’s initials, a moving and personal touch befitting of his classic style of dressing. — AMANDA SEYFRIED Faithful Companion NICHOLAS HOLT Future Heirloom “I engraved the initials HKH as a way to honour my son and keep him close to me every day. Timepieces have a tradition in my family of being passed down between generation­s. I am excited to pass along this watch to my son one day.” Delicate Beauty NINI “When I was a child, many Chinese poems about the elegance and resilience of the plum blossom impressed me a lot. In my hometown, Nanjing, we have the ‘best Plum Blossom Mountain in China’ and Xuanwu Lake, where you can find plum trees blooming vibrantly even in winter snow. The choice to include these elements was not only due to the classic beauty of the plum blossom, but also because it’s symbolic of perseveran­ce in the face of adversity.” 20 MARIECLAIR­E.COM.MY May2020
