Cartier chess sets and Saint Laurent roller skates? Fashion wants to play!
Menagerie de Cartier exceptional chessboard with precious fauna, $241,000
Checkmate #girlboss. If business is part execution and part mind-game, then this striking chessboard set will set the corporate tone, reigning your desk in obsidian, bolivar wood, white marble, and palladium-finish sterling silver. The usual crowns and head-dresses to represent the court pieces are cleverly replaced by beautiful creatures: Falcons are rooks, cobras as bishops, and of course, the King? Cartier’s signature panther, naturally.
Again, what’s a great French house to do with something quite idyllic and Californian? Perhaps after surveying the skies with the boomerang (see previous slide), the ambition is to ride the seas. After all, when you’re an empowered fashion-curious fashionista – you, our dear Her World reader – you need to set your sights afar from land too. Are you stoked yet?
Nothing says Americana more than a good ol’ baseball glove. Avid collectors will get their hands on this limited edition piece without batting an eyelid. What’s not to love about a ball-catcher in glovetanned leather that’s finished by hand, and comes in 10 bubble-gum colours?
PONG! Valued at over 50,000 buckeroos in the market, you may have already won before the game even began. This one from Hermes comes in solid palissander wood and printed Swift calfskin, and the tiles are in embossed in full leather. Mahjong will never be the same again when the tiles knock gently against each other, making for a game that’s not only about wits but poise.
It’s a boon for the #spornosexual to capture your finest moments performing the downward facing dog, or roller-skating in Saint Laurents (see previous slide) like Heather Graham in Boogie Nights.
And of course, pretty much everyone has an Instax camera these days, but a limited edition one in an exclusive gold metallic hue is sure to set you apart. Great news: They’ve just continued the collaboration with the same camera in a silver metallic shade. This chic Mini 70 camera features the Michael Kors logo and the designer’s signature which you can proudly flaunt, and scream “Film is not dead”. You can also jazz it up with a gold or silver-tone chain link strap (sold separately) to make it truly an oh-so-covetable accessory.
Don’t worry, Prada-lettes can think of a hundred and one things to do with a Prada flashlight, which comes snug in a Saffiano leather pouch. We can only think of three: Glamping; looking for our micro earrings in the depths of a macro Balenciaga pillow bag, and prepping for a flash sale. Oh wait, that’s not what a flash sale means?
