So I had a particularly successful window-shopping trip in West London last week (successful in that I saw and coveted much and bought nothing). In anticipation of Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming re-imagining of The Great Gatsby, there is a definite return to old-style glamour in high-end accessories and a girlishly flighty but undoubtedly luxe attitude at work in La Perla’s current collection that would surely appeal to Daisy Buchanan herself. Browse and drool jealously, I say!
These day Meyer Wolfsheim wouldn’t need to wear human molars as cuff-links. He’d just adorn his wrist with a Breguet, the ultimate sign of power and good taste.
And it turns out Breguet isn’t just for the boys… the Deco jewellery trend continues and Tiffany doesn’t have the monopoly on flapper girl rocks.
