Another evening in Milan, another fashion event. Last Wednesday my friend Mari and I went to the launch party of the new watch collection of Ralph Lauren in the Montenapoleone store. While sipping on a glass of Roederer champagne and enjoying fine fingerfood, we discovered the store and, of course, the new watch collection.
Well, there are actually 3 collections: Stirrup, Slim Classique and Sporting. The watches are produced through a joint venture with Richemont and are only available in Milan’s Via Montenapoleone boutique before entering the retail market with only a few selected jewelers. Before you decide to buy one of those watches you need to know that they have a price ranging from €8,000 to €20,000. Expensive! For that price you have one in white gold, pink gold, platinum or stainless steel, some with diamonds.
Before going home we all get a goodie bag with magazines and a scented candle of the Ralph Lauren home fragrance collection. I love the smell! It’s a blend of Valencia orange, clove, cinnamon bark and red amber. Thank you, Ralph Lauren!
