Van Cleef & Arpels: The Art & Science Of Gems

Categories:Other Brands


After Hermès’ Leather Forever and Louis Vuitton’s Series 3 exhibitions, both of which were huge affairs in Singapore, comes French jewellery house Van Cleef & Arpels’ exhibition, The Art & Science Of Gems.

Kicking off on 23 April 2016 and housed within Marina Bay Sands’ ArtScience Museum, it’s a carefully curated journey that’s meant to tease all your senses, starting from the origins of minerals that include everything from precious gems to exquisite diamonds to the extraordinary craftsmanship that Van Cleef & Arpels puts into each delicate, ornate piece before it is presented to their boutiques around the world.

With over 450 pieces on display, it’s easily one of the largest exhibitions put together by VCA outside of Paris yet, with the beautiful pieces divided into 7 themes that show the revered savoir-faire and meticulous crafting techniques, many of which are exclusive to the Maison.

Along with the French National Museum of Natural History, who will be presenting 250 gems and minerals in their pure, unadulterated state, which will also be on display for an experience that’s both complete and enriching.

The exhibition will run from 23 April to 14 August 2016, with opening hours set between 10 am and 7 pm each day. Admission is charged at SGD10 for Singapore residents, with family packages (2 adults and 2 kids) priced at just SGD26 nett.

In other words, a small price to pay for the experience of savouring hundreds of priceless gems at your leisure over the course of the day. Just head over to ArtScience Museum’s online site for more details.

Dolce & Gabbana Debuts Three One-of-a-Kind Exotic Patchwork Bags

Categories:Other Brands

Dolce & Gabbana Exotic Sicily Bags

The whole trick of the luxury industry is to make consumers feel like they’re buying something rare when, in actuality, whatever we’re buying is almost certainly made in enormous quantities. As the industry expands, putting your hands on something unique gets harder and harder, which is why I took note of these Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Small Patchwork Exotic Bags atLUISAVIAROMA – they’re all one-of-a-kind.

Most brands produce one-of-a-kind pieces here and there to display in stores or offer to their best clients, but it’s not often that a brand as big as Dolce & Gabbana offers something totally unique at a third-party retailer, especially an exotic piece. Each bag is made from different-colored panels of crocodile and snakeskin, except for the bottom, which is leather. Also, each bag retails for right under $3,000, and although its not a bargain, it’s not nearly as much as most exotic bags from major brands usually cost, let alone a one-off piece.

For me, the winner of the trio is the bag with the pale blue crocodile flap; the contrast against the yellow snakeskin underneath is beautiful. Which is your favorite?

Taylor Swift Still Loves Her Favorite Dolce & Gabbana Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Taylor Swift Dolce and Gabbana Sara Bag

Here’s Taylor Swift, leaving the gym in NYC in the cutest post-gym outfit ever, carrying what is undoubtedly her favorite bag of the year: the Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. You can find a slightly more formal, brocade version of the Sara on sale for $1,274 (down from $1,820) at MATCHESFASHION.COM. It’s worth noting that this site is now offering free shipping and free returns (with full refunds on duties for returns) for US customers with the coupon code USAFREE.

Taylor loves this bag so much, we penned an extensive post about her love affair with the D&G Sara all the way back in April. In other news, is anyone else alarmed by the number of full grown, (presumably non-paparazzi) men that are standing around taking smartphone photos of Taylor? How about the guy who is obviously waiting to filch whatever she threw in the trash and list it on eBay?

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss Hang Out with Their Dolce & Gabbana Bags

Categories:Other Brands

Taylor Swift Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag Karlie Kloss Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag

Here are adorable, color-matching BFFs Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss, leaving NYC brunch favorite Sarabeth’s in Tribeca. Both ladies are carrying black Dolce & Gabbana bags. Taylor’s is the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag, while Karlie has the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag(formerly known as the Miss Sicily, but apparently Dolce is looking to simplify things). Taylor’s bag is currently out of stock online, but Karlie’s Sicily can be found for $1,995 at Barneys.

Taylor has been on quite a D&G bag kick as of late, and this Agata bag is fairly similar to her hands-down favorite handbag of 2014, the Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. You can see more of Taylor’s favorite bags in “The Many Bags of Taylor Swift,” and you can also check out some of Karlie’s top bag picks in “50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels”.
