Melissa Massey                                    Retail Jeweller                                September 30                

                  

Luxury brand Bulgari unveiled the world’s thinnest tourbillon at its Chiming Time exhibition yesterday. Four years in the making, the tourbillon included in the Octo design marked a world record at just 1.95mm. >>> 

 

The Elements of Elegance: What Makes Design ‘Sophisticated’?

Stephanie Walden                                                Mashable                                     September 29

    

Imagine for a moment a pristinely wrapped Tiffany & Co. package: The company’s signature robin’s egg blue, the tantalizing, perfectly tied white ribbon, the iconic logo delicately printed atop. It’s the epitome of class, elegance and sophistication. >>>
