In the past Pairs Fashion Week, we got to meet a lot of new designers. In the famous trade show Tranoi, one of the top places to encounter emerging design, we were introduced to Panache. A fine jewelry brand from the south part of Korean peninsula. Also in display, fashion jewelry line P by Panache drew our attention.    It is actually not proper to call it an emerging designer brand since it has been running for years. And it has also been featured in magazines including Vogue, W, Elle, Instyle, Grazia. If you follow Korean celebrities, you will notice top actresses or singers have worn Panache jewelries publicly. However, their design isn’t confined to Asian consumers. I mean who will refuse beautiful things?


‘Panache’ originates from the term ‘plume on a helmet’, which exactly tells the inspiration of designer Cha Sunyoung. She deeply admired the armor helmets used in the Medieval period (the brand logo is an armor helmet!). Cold yet lavish, bold yet intricate. Pieces from Panache, fine jewelry line, are made out of classy materials like diamonds, pearls, gold, sapphires. The high-class tone matching and exquisite craftsmanship will definitely overdose you.

With more affordable price and whimsical imagination, P by Panache was launched as second line in 2009. Shapes featuring cross, ray of sunlight, ribbon are realized with Swarovski crystals. If you think they can only win your heart with dazzling materials, then you haven’t met its latest collection. The minimalist accent of P by Panache was perfectly explained by the cult ear cuffs and curve bracelets. With a pearl or a little decoration of crystals, it makes your statement look. To be mentioned specifically, the First Kiss collection was inspired by the sexy goddess Marilyn Monroe’s signature red lips. One of the most famous lines about a first kiss was made by cursive handwriting on the golden chain. ‘I do not know how to kiss, where do the noses go?’ Honestly, the line may sound clumsy, but it is also sexy, isn’t it? photo credit: instagram @PbyPanache_official

Back to the 90s, we went as Prada left its hometown to present its second cruise collection on the seventh floor of the Herzog & de Meuron designed Prada HQ in New York. The star-studded event which saw the likes of Selena Gomez, Dakota Fanning, Marc Jacobs, Uma Thurman and Chloë Sevigny, was also live streamed in Times Square. Floating transparent panels hung in the minimalistic space, some in red to recreate an augmented sunset while mirroring the frenetic energy of New York.

Karl Lagerfeld is no stranger to an extravagant backdrop. Having previously held fashion shows with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, a life-size dollhouse and an airline, it seems only logical that Chanel would preview their Cruise 2019 show… on an actual cruise? You may have noticed the words ‘La Pausa’ on the side of the 330-foot-long ship. Named after a villa in the south of France built by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel in the 30s, the stunning backdrop majestically sat tall at the Grand Palais in Paris, a month after it was announced that Chanel would be pledging $40 million for restoration.
