Paris has long been an inspiration for artists – perhaps it’s the charming cobbled sidewalks, or the romantic cafes that pepper the streets. Elle is no exception. This Spring, the French label is launching a collection of watches inspired by the green fields and fresh blooms of the City of Love in the springtime.
The brand has always been at the forefront of creating beautiful watches that are made to make wearers feel confident, so there’s bound to be something in this series that will complete your ensemble, no matter your style.
For the flower lover
The hibiscus and periwinkle, which symbolise beauty and nostalgia respectively, were the inspirations behind the floral dial of the 32mm Orsay watch. Featuring sparkling crystal indexes, this dainty model is available with either a stainless steel bracelet ($169) or leather strap ($149).
Wear it with: A floral linen maxi dress, capeline hat, and lace-up sandals – you’ll be all set for Sunday brunch.
For the greenery enthusiast
Featuring a mother-of-pearl dial, an adorable heart charm and a pastel green leather strap, the 32mm Mouffetard ($129) is a perfect example of how minimal can still be fun.
Wear it with: A monochrome look, like a satin slip skirt and a billowy shirt, both in the same shade of pastel green. Throw on a pair of strappy heels and slap on a mauve lippie for a girls’ night out.
For the cool girl
Perhaps the most modish of the lot, the logo-emblazoned 30mm Montorgueil ($129) is for those who want to achieve the most with minimal accessorising. The embossed leather strap and rose gold-tone stick indexes will add an “oomph” to any outfit.
Wear it with: A quintessential model off-duty ensemble – think a plain slouchy tee paired with medium wash denim jeans, and your favourite pair of white sneakers. Throw on a baseball cap and you’re all ready for a day of running errands (or casting calls).
Elle’s Spring collection is now available at OG People’s Park and Tangs at Tang Plaza. Selected styles are also available on Shopee.
