Pen a Story

Alfred Hitchcock,one of the most influential filmmakers of all time and a cultural icon,now has a Montblanc to his name. Honouring his contribution to filmmaking,the German luxury label has created 80 pieces of a limited edition pen in white gold. It features the dramatic swirling vertigo effect in black lacquer enhanced with red reminiscent of the blood-stained crime scenes of his films. In addition,the ‘Psycho’ knife clip is enriched with diamonds. The edition features additional details — a neon sign of his famous self-portrait sketch enriches the 18K rhodium plated solid gold nib — reflecting Hitchcock’s mastery of fear and fantasy.

Rosso Brunello’s Spring-Summer Collection 2012 is worth a look. Made with leather PU,the collection features peep-toe heels with a three-layer upper design in summery shades of white,blood red and a pale blue. The white-and-red layers give the snake-skin effect; ditto for the strap at the back to hold the foot in place. The heel is mid-range and the sandals boasts of a cushioned skin-toned footbed. Team it up with summer casuals and you’re ready to trend-walk.

Black Beauty

Presenting a futuristic take with black,fashion’s most influential colour,is Swiss watch brand Raymond Weil with ‘freelancer Urban Black’. The 42mm case of the chronograph has been coated in black PVD and the black,galvanic,opaline dial has 8 luminescent Arabic numerals with silver-powdered edges. The extreme hardness of PVD coating the case and folding clasp contrasts with the softness of the strap’s semi-matt,black calfskin. Elegance and comfort all in one.
