By : | November 21, 2017

From watches to scotch whisky and luxury bags, all the best indulgences which you can gift your loved ones, or yourself, to celebrate 2017’s festive season


LUMINOR DUE timepieces, Officine Panerai

Officine Panerai goes back into its archives to draw inspiration from the lines of the LUMINOR 1950. The new edition has been elegantly redesigned as the thinnest and most versatile of all watches created by Panerai. The collection represents the creation by Panerai of a more design-centric collection– at 3-bar/30-meter water resistance these are not Luminor watches.  Both Luminor 1950-style cases are 42-mm in diameter and only 10.5 mm thick, and feature the patented bridge-and-lever device that protects the crown and helps ensure the watches’ 30-meter water resistance. The dial of the titanium model is a sun-brushed blue; the rose-gold watch sports a rare-for-Panerai ivory-colored dial with blue applied numerals.


Scottish Leader Original

This beautiful blended scotch whisky uses traditional methods of production. The smooth blended scotch has a palate full of rich toffee and nuts and is well-balanced with silky smoothness and spicy. This big, full bodied whisky has subtle smokiness, and is fruity with hints of malt, sherry and sweet oak. Already a favourite with connoisseurs, its delicate smoky finale sets it apart from other blends.


Altiplano Feather Watch, Piaget

The statement Altiplano Feather Marquetry timepiece comes in an 18K white gold case. Set with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.71 carat) the dial in peacock, duck and rooster marquetry, is partially covered with silver leaf. It features the Manufacture Piaget 430P mechanical hand-wound movement, and the eventful strap is adorned with striking peacock feathers.

Synonymous with affluence for over a century now, Italian luxury fashion house, Ermenegildo Zegna has now introduced an exclusive line of men’s accessories, entertainment and home products crafted from the brand’s signature Pelle Tessuta—woven leather fabric made from extremely thin strips of micro leather in place of fabric yarns. Called Zegna Toyz, the collection also includes modish multimedia accessories created in collaboration with Master & Dynamic, a New York-based audio company.


Sicily is My Love, Dolce & Gabbana

Glam up your kitchen with fashion behemoth Dolce & Gabbana’s Sicily Is My Love collection.

This sinuous shaped rose-blush coloured bar cabinet is just the perfect accessory to have this season. Designed by product designer Nika Zupanc, the 88 Secrets Bar Cabinet showcases intricate metallic details running through it in rose-gold. The cabinet is a part of Kolkata-based homeware label Scarlet Splendour’s 88 Secrets furniture line, which, interestingly, is named after the 88 constellations known to man.

Rohit Bal and Swarovski

Ace designer Rohit Bal has designed a special collection of cufflinks for Swarovski, which pays tribute to India’s incredible artisans, along with the beauty of wildlife, birds and flowers that find expression in Indian decorative arts. In lotus and dancing peacock motifs, the cufflinks are encrusted with glistening crystals. Titled CONFLUENCE, the line is a culmination of thoughts that inspire an artist to love, hope, thrive and create.

Dionysus bag, Gucci

Decorated with feathers, crystals, sequins and beads in kaleidoscopic parrot and floral artwork, this Dionysus bag is crafted from coated-canvas and violet suede. Spacious internal compartments and push clasp-fastening front flap are among its highlights.
