Timeless



Gold and black, one of the most classic color combinations. This beautifully crafted piece is by Isabel Marant and this is where her inspiration for this piece sparked:
“What she remembers most vividly about her father’s steady style is his watch, a simple timepiece with a square, gold face and black fabric band that he was never without. She doesn’t know who made it (the brand name has worn off with time), where he bought it, or if it was a gift. All she knows is that when she wears it now, ten years after her dad’s passing, “I feel a little of him with me.”
But because it’s too precious and priceless for everyday use, Marant’s crafted an almost dupe of the original and is available only in the Paris and New York boutiques.

  2. Can you believe, my dad used to have a watch like this one when I was little- until the band wore off :( Too bad I can't even get the affordable dupe!
