Verve brings you the trendiest buys in the market

SHOW BOAT
Regatta time...and a watch especially crafted for the occasion is here. The purringly sexy Admiral’s Cup Chronograph from Corum marries strong, subtle grey with vivid orange, and sets imaginations on fire. Thrilling.
LADY LOVE
The Zenith Chrono Master Moon Lady, ah. White crocodile leather strap, white mother-of-pearl dial, overall veneer of sheer fabulousness. Silken.
MOON SHINE
Once, our ancestors told time by the moon. The Longines PrimaLuna opaline confection is a dream straight out of the watchmakers’ workshops, paying tribute our foremothers and ourselves. Luminous.
GO SNOW
It’s naughty, it’s nice. Dior’s classy ‘Couture’ strap in black satin offsets bouquets of brilliant diamonds cut and arranged in the rare snow setting. Just the right kind of sparkly.
BLACK VELVET
Black, white and impervious to the greatest pressure known to man. This Breitling Avenger Seawolf chronograph is a diver’s watch par excellence, and its red trim makes it one of the jewels of the sea. Indomitable.
ART DEKKO
One of the most beloved architectural styles of 20th century urbanity makes its presence felt in the design of Girard-Perregaux’s updated Vintage 1945 Tourbillon, with three gold bridges, and plenty of charm. Dandy.
RADIO GAGA
The words ‘hand-wound mechanical’ bring out the elite geek in most people, and the stylish are no exception. To them, the Radiomir Panerai will be a polished-steel-and-crystal, alligator-strapped slice of heaven. Smart, very smart.
SPORT ON
The new Kalpagraph collection from Parmigiani wears its elegance with dapper flash. All of Parmigiani’s signature motifs combine to make this one a – ha, ha – keeper.
GROUND HERO
Like wraps of silk, Cocoon’s carpets – or objets d’art, if you prefer – will surround you with the brand’s fragile yet robust vision. Sink in. Available at Cocoon Carpets, Mumbai
CENTSATIONAL
Centennial celebrations from Zegna in the form of cufflinks? You could clap them right on, but these little pieces of sheer class are available only in a limited edition of 100 pieces. Agonisingly exquisite.
Available at DLF Emporio, New Delhi
SHOE LOVE
Python-effect Fendi leather pumps scream ‘trendy’ with all their scarlet-accented might. Vivid and amazingly versatile. Vroom.
Available at DLF Emporio, New Delhi
GLAM DAILY
Utter femininity is Varun D Jani’s watchword, and her V-Glam collection adds some and surprise and vim to ornamentation. A much needed breath of fresh air.
Available at V Glam studio, Mumbai
VAI NOT?
Choices to please even the fussiest heart in Sony’s new Vaio E series of laptops, running a riot of colour and configurations. Beautiful and accessible. We believe.
Available at all Sony Centres across India
DO OR DI
Gold and black sapphire crystal. Restraint, seriousness, and the last word in sophistication? Dior’s new My Dior ‘Black & Gold’ has all that covered, and more.
Available at Watches of Switzerland, Mumbai & Johnson Watches Co, New Delhi
