I love my Apple watch and, as the editor of my own high-end fashion website, Compellier, I also love luxury products. That’s why I’m very excited by Apple’s partnership with French lifestyle brand Hermès.
For those who don’t know, Hermès specialise in leather accessories and they must be doing something right as they’ve been trading for close to 200 years.
Now though, they’ve partnered with Apple to bring a bit of extra style to the Apple Watch, with a range of straps and new watch faces available for the discerning buyer.
There’s a price to pay for combining Apple’s cutting edge tech with the quality of a venerable Parisian accessory house of course, with the double tour strap edition of the Apple Watch costing a cool £808 ($1,250 USD).
It’s a bold move but a totally understandable one on the tech giant’s part, as the new collaboration sees Hermès steering the Apple’s wearable tech away from being a gadget and closer to being a luxury watch and style item.
I certainly can’t say I wouldn’t have been tempted if I didn’t already own an Apple watch!
Well we’ve certainly been busy at the Compellier HQ over the last few months. Our fashion-packed Autumn issue is almost ready for release, and will be available online at www.compellier.com from Saturday, September 6.
In this vintage-inspired issue, Compellier takes a trip down memory lane, looking at world fashions from over the last three decades, and how the technological revolution has impacted fashion and beauty trends and consumptions.
The theme pays homage to the 30th anniversary of London Fashion week, which was celebrated this year.
Compellier will be attending LFW to bring you first hand insights from the catwalk shows as they emerge. Be sure to visit the site to read up on the major catwalk reports during the week.
Not only that, Compellier will be bringing you live updates throughout LFW to ensure you are continuously up to date with trends and collections.
The Compellier team has been working around the clock to produce an abundance of compelling fresh, current content, but with a vintage twist. So I would like to say a special thanks to the team, your hard work is appreciated, and certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.
I can’t wait for the release – it’s going to be a great issue!
So I have now launched a new category of Compellier; Junior Style for Compellier. I feel this is a really unique category for a luxury life style magazine. Children often get forgotten in magazines like this and I want to change this, I can see there is a strong audience of parents and I want to provide for them. I love shopping for lovely items and clothing for my daughter and I know she enjoys it just as much, I think even children could read this section. I know my little girl would!
I am really looking forward to adding to this category and gaining a new audience as well as providing our current one.
I am always looking at expanding and improving our magazine, and many more good things to come.
Watch this space…
