From Karl Lagerfeld’s new range of engagement rings to the world’s priciest handbag, these are the very best international fashion news stories of the week.
Karl Lagerfeld has Designed a Line of Engagement Rings
Karl Lagerfeld, one of the most talented and busiest designers in the entire world, has now added a line of engagement rings for his never-ending list of achievements. Alongside designing multiple sets annually for Chanel, Fendi and his eponymous line, Lagerfeld has found time to partner up with fine jewellery manufacturer, Frederick Goldman, to make an exclusive assortment of rings for brides-to-be.
The collection of engagement rings, that is Lagerfeld’s first ever, features three unique styles, each aimed at budding brides. The rings will be available in platinum in addition to 18-karat yellow and white gold.
“The rings needed to express something that concerns the heart and real feelings,” said Lagerfeld in an interview. “It has to be a symbol and a sign of a true desire of participation. It must be elegant but not bling-bling.”
THIS JUST IN: #KarlLagerfeld is collaborating with handsome jeweller #FrederickGoldman to debut his lineup of #engagement rings he describes as understated yet elegant. Which of those fashion forward blings would you say yes, #brides-to-be?
Michael Kors Bans Social Media from Resort 2017 Presentation
In the lead up to Michael Kors’ June 7th Resort 2017 demonstration, the programmer has put a ban on all social media at the function. Rather than the usual wave of Instagram photos, videos and Snapchat tales, the newest will release just five images from the demonstration for the media to use in reviews and on social media. All other imagery of the show is going to be set on strict lockdown before the collection belongs to stores later this season.
“We feel our clients and fans will love having a sneak peek of the collection as opposed to inundating them with too much imagery too soon,” said Kors. “Finally, this is about creating more excitement when the item is available.”
The move also functions as an alternate choice to the present changing of schedules that lots of manufacturers are now picking. Though other labels are deciding to reveal collections as they are being released to fight the distance between the presentation and launching, Michael Kors will rather restrict consumer exposure to this range to keep it fresh.
