Special Rolex Deepsea for James Cameron

Although isn’t an official brand ambassador, James Cameron is really special figure, since Rolex created a new dive watch specially for him. The newest version of the iconic watch was launched on 4 August in New York during the US premiere of National Geographic’s Deepsea Challenge 3D documentary film in the splendid Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History in the presence of James Cameron and other.

The Rolex Deepsea D-Blue Dial diver watch is based on the standard Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea 116660 watch, but has a unique dial that starts blue at the top and using a gradient goes to black. “D-Blue” likely stands for “diving blue” and the color change on the dial is in reference to a very special event.

This new watch is closely based on the experimental Deepsea Challenge watch that James Cameron was wearing two years ago during his expedition into the Mariana Trench when he made a record-breaking solo dive 10,908 meters (35,787 feet) below the surface of the Pacific Ocean piloting the Deepsea Challenger submersible. The timepiece worked perfectly throughout the dive at extreme pressures, confirming Rolex’s position as the leading brand in waterproofness.

Angelina Jolie's Maleficent-Inspired Custom Heels by Christian Louboutin

Angelina Jolie is teaming up with the Christian Louboutin to release Maleficent-inspired shoes. Created by famed red-bottom shoe designer and co-designed by the actress herself, the shoes, called Malangeli, were inspired by Jolie’s character in the Disney film and will be sold on a pre-order basis only. The 39-year-old actress debuted a pair in black, then came white and gold versions as the promotional tour rolled on – each hand-made in Monsieur Louboutin’s Paris atelier.

According to the brand, the shoes have mesh panels, to create ‘an illusion of magic’, sculpted heels that looks like tendrils of smoke and of course, the French designer’s iconic red sole and ‘the result is an exclusive shoe that’s dark, dangerous and altogether seductive, on the red carpet and off’.
The styles available to order will be black and red patent leather only, priced at £950 ($1,600).Profits from the sales will benefit SOS Children’s Villages, the charity dedicated to orphaned and abandoned children.

Louis Vuitton “Petites Malles” Pendants

Louis Vuitton has been known for its trunks for years and today the French luxury house pays tribute to its design signature with three gold trunks in miniature pendant form. These beautiful and brilliant pieces known as the “Petites Malles” or “Little Trunks” pendants appeared on the Louis Vuitton fall-winter 2014-2015 show, Nicolas Ghesquière’s first as brand creative director.

Each piece is made from yellow gold and finished with high jewelery craftsmanship, with impeccable attention to detail. In-store now, the tiny trunks dangled longways, closed and open at the end of a gold keyhole-link chain, each engraved to convey the same impressive level of detail as their full-sized counterparts right down to the gold ingot-style hallmark on the back.

These small treasures, available only in yellow gold cost €4,500 ($6,040).
