Olivia Burton take inspiration from vintage and catwalk trends to create a range of stylish and covetable accessories. Olivia Burton pieces are feminine, fun and collectable.â€‹ Its concept store is now open at ION Orchard.
The British accessories brand was founded by best friends and ex-fashion buyers Jemma and Lesa, who met on their first day at the London College of Fashion. They bonded over a love of design, a passion to start their own business and a mutual struggle to find a watch that they wanted to wear.
Lovers of vintage, the pair would trawl through antique markets to find timepieces, but, whilst beautiful, the cogs would often stop and start. After graduation, the girls went on to pursue successful careers in fashion buying, clocking up time at diverse fashion brands such as Topshop, ASOS and Selfridges. All the while, the idea of going it alone was gathering momentum until the day in 2011 when Jemma and Lesa made the leap, quit their jobs and set about creating their own beautiful, unique watches from the kitchen table.
Named after Lesa’s great aunt whose spirited approach and energy was a huge inspiration to the girls, Olivia Burton debuted its first collection in September 2012. Its covetable, collectable styles, which now include a striking jewellery line-up, are inspired by vintage finds and the latest catwalk trends.
Designs are brought to life at the brand’s pretty East London studio, where Jemma and Lesa work closely with their small team to ensure every piece is tweaked to perfection. Think intricate hand-illustrations, beautiful references to nature and must-have colour palettes.â€‹

Heralded at their initial release in 2001 as a break from the past and a new direction of horology, the wristwatches of Richard Mille were from their very inception, extraordinary and uncompromising. From its establishment, the young brand would lay claim to a number of world premiere innovations in the application, use and design of new technological materials that have seriously extended the entire field of horological knowledge and invention.
Taking leads from the research and development world of high-tech aeronautics and racing car industries, materials new to watchmaking such as carbon nanofiber, ALUSIC, Aluminum-Lithium, ANTICORODAL and PHYNOX have made a noticeable entrance into the world of watchmaking via Richard Mille Watches. Each of these materials was chosen for the specific, clearly defined and improved efficiency they bring to watchmaking. Novel materials such as these are the foundation for achieving advanced chronometric results, whilst simultaneously broadening the possibilities open to horology in the 21st century. Since then, many brands have followed this pathway to the future originally drawn up by Richard Mille in 2001.
Nonetheless, new materials and their potential for horological applications constitute only a small part of the demands required to be truly exceptional in the over populated world of horology. It is only when materials are combined with technical engineering excellence and inventiveness that the necessary prerequisites for creating ultimate wristwatches can be fulfilled. Breaking away from the current trend in creating an in house manufacture, Richard Mille instead produces their timepieces using the best companies available today in Switzerland. These manufacturing partners are considered manufacture désignée, a term which defines the leading specialists of each discipline whom the company can count on for the realization of their designs and concepts. The ability to deliver the highest tolerances and finish with superlative materials is of course a minimum requirement. Equally essential for the creation of a successful product is the skill and ability of each partner to develop new approaches to watchmaking, their inquisitiveness and openness to the use of new materials and their application, and last but not least their deep and thorough understanding of the Richard Mille philosophy and strategy.
In 1980 Carlo Crocco created the Hublot watch featuring a gold case and natural rubber strap. For the first time in the history of watchmaking, a precious underground material was combined with an above-ground natural substance. Soon thereafter, leading watchmaking brands started using rubber, thus validating our concept.
In 2004, industry legend Jean-Claude Biver becomes CEO of Hublot. Under his leadership, Hublot revisits its founding principles and launches “The Art of Fusion” concept.
Fusion means combining exotic materials like gold and ceramic, tantalum and red gold, or even magnesium and titanium. But it also means blending classical and modern Swiss watchmaking tradition.
In 2010, The first King Power models equipped with the UNICO movement go on sale. With its first chronograph movement entirely made in-house by Hublot, the King Power UNICO became the emblem of the brand’s progress towards verticalization.
As of the 1st of January 2012, Ricardo Guadalupe was promoted from Managing Director to CEO of Hublot, in charge of the brand’s daily operations.
Present in almost every country, and with over a quarter billion dollars in annual sales revenue, Hublot has become a horology force to be reckoned with worldwide.
CHAUMET was founded in 1780 by Marie-Etienne Nitot, a jeweler who was appointed as the personal jeweler of Napoleon and all members of the royal family after his creations for NapoleonâÂ€Â™s coronation and wedding.

Spirit and elegance: equally fascinating, equally difficult to define.

Nature captured in all its vitality, the poetry of couture, the magic of fairies and ballerinas, all have inspired astonishing pieces of jewelry that sublimely demonstrate the MaisonÂ’s technical mastery, legendary craftsmanship, and taste for innovation and transformations. Today as always, Van Cleef & ArpelsÂ’ creations adorn celebrities and others, proving that one only needs to listen to oneÂ’s time to be part of it, and that one can live a century and still be in tune with today.
