Freida Pinto features in Clarks’ FW ’19 campaign
An ace at delivering red carpet perfection, Freida Pinto features in Clarks’ latest campaign, sharing space with actor Alexander Skarsgard. “I share a common understanding of the need for comfort, because that is something in the world of fashion that is really not preached,” says Pinto about the association. “At the beginning of my career, I was told I had to sacrifice comfort for the sake of style and being a fashion icon, which I think is not true at all – so I think Clarks and I have a common idea of what comfort really means and I find the collaboration very organic.”
Launch of de Grisogono’s Allegra 25
de Grisogono recently dropped its latest timepiece Allegra 25. The case features a woven gold ribbon in delicately interlacing circles, creating a seamlessly flowing visual effect. It’s offset by mother-of-pearl or a diamond-pavé dial, with the bezel showcasing snow-set or bezel-set gems.

Beautiful portraits of Ali and Tse are juxtaposed with white pages, scribbled with handwritten notes, exploring different notions of love, failure, fight, risk, dreaming, playfulness, movement, and freedom.
