Claire’s and Katy (yes as in Perry), together are creating a jewellery and fashion accessories range. The exclusive collection, named PRISM, after her new album will be full of limited edition bits and bobs that Claire’s is so famous for. Inspired by the lyrics and titles of Perry’s greatest hits, the collectables will make girls of all ages smile, I’m sure. Be patient though, the fun pieces aren’t out until May this year.

Renowned for her ‘it’ girl status in the late 90’s, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has graced our television screens on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here, in various presenter roles and filled many newspaper column inches following her very public cocaine addiction. Now having stepped out of the limelight, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson is better known for her close relationship with the Royal Family, her charitable work and accomplishment at the piano, which she practices for two hours a day. We caught up with Tara to find out her latest.
Prima Ballerina and Artistic Director of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo has become the new ambassador for Backes & Strauss’ stunning Victoria diamond watch collection. It is easy to see why this is a perfect collaborative pairing – with the grace, finesse and precision that is central to the world of ballet, something that is echoed in the creation of all Backes & Strauss timepieces.
Not sure who is luckier, Frank or Rotary? After becoming Chelsea FC Global Official Timekeeper, Rotary has gone one step further and signed up Frank Lampard as its brand ambassador. With a personal interest in watches, Frank is reported to be delighted to become Chelsea’s brand ambassador for Rotary. “This is a huge year for Chelsea and England and it is pleasing to know Rotary are on our side,” he said. Usually, a little disinterested in football or indeed some brand ambassador signings, but with the hum of the World Cup and with a slight crush on Frank Lampard, it’s hard for us to ignore this timely partnering. Each are a joy to watch!
Post-modern pop star Mika has created the latest Swatch Art Specials called KUKULAKUKI and KUKULAKUKU (say that after a glass of wine). Adding his name to the long list of painters, sculptors, filmmakers, musicians, photographers and designers, Mika, with a little help from his sister Yasmine, worked with Swatch to create a daring ‘art for the wrist’ duo. Inspired by a totemic object, the timepieces feature a simple but bold pattern on the strap, with an image similar to an African tribal mask on each dial. Visually striking with a bit of a mystical feel, the watches are quiet captivating and just what you’d expect from the vibrant and diverse pop star.
Once in a lifetime you get to dance the night away to club classics offered up by DJ-model Daisy Lowe. Last night Eve’s Watch did just that at the launch party of Lifetime, a new female-orientated entertainment channel due to hit our screens at the beginning of November. The team was kindly invited by Citizen Watch, who has sealed a massive 12 month exclusive multi-media sponsorship deal with Lifetime. We were thoroughly entertained by the talented circus-style acrobats, teased by crazy stilt-walkers and wowed by the ‘awesome’ Laura Mvula’s private set ahead of tonight’s Mercury Prize. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Amanda deCadenet and the hilarious Alex Zane, it was a rather spectacular Tuesday night out at One Marylebone in London.
To celebrate the launch of the new ladies steel and rose gold Aquaracer collection, TAG Heuer with long-time friend of the brand Bo Derek, hosted an intimate evening on Tuesday 8th October at TRAMP Nightclub.
