The season of love is upon us and for Valentine’s Day 2024, LUXUO has compiled an exclusive list of watches, jewellery, fashion and beauty. While the colour red seems to be steeped in symbolism for both the Lunar New Year and Valentine’s (with no coincidence that both days fall closely one after the other). Be it for him, for her, for a friend, or for yourself, each piece is individually selected from their respective brand’s offerings to celebrate the week of love and passion.
A. Lange & Söhne
To mark the arrival of Valentine’s Day, A. Lange & Söhne has curated iconic timepieces from the LANGE 1 collection. The Lange 1 Time Zone combines exceptional functionality with sophisticated craftsmanship. The timepiece features ring-shaped day/night displays and a practical daylight-saving time indication. The classic off-centre dial configuration features two-time indications, an outsize date display, and a power-reserve indicator. It also includes an adjustable city ring, allowing the wearer to easily set the time for a second-time zone.
Breguet pays tribute to Valentine’s Day by adorning the manufacture’s Reine de Naples with new, poetic references. This limited edition timepiece is one of 28 pieces. The new interpretation from the House of Breguet celebrates love with subtle red accents delicately scattered across its white mother-of-pearl dial. The flange is set with 66 hand-set rubies, complemented by a bezel featuring a myriad of diamonds and a crown adorned with a cabochon-cut ruby. Discreet red hearts mark the hours on an offset chapter ring. The hours and minutes hands follow their passionate path, perfectly complementing the alligator leather strap. Additionally, the lug and folding clasp are adorned with hand-set diamonds.
For more than two decades Blancpain’s watchmakers have created a special timepiece for Valentine’s Day. For 2024 the brand takes inspiration from their Ladybird Colors line. With its vibrant red color palette, heart motifs, and brilliant diamonds, this special edition is an exclusive expression of Valentine’s traditions. Its dial fashioned from an exclusive variety of mother of pearl features red roman numerals to which extra visual depth is given by a time-consuming process that requires five separate applications of colour. This special edition Valentine’s Day 2024 is limited to 99 examples.
To celebrate the season of love Harry Winston has unveiled the Winston Cluster. Taken from the House’s famed motifs, pieced are available in an extraordinary array of designs and gemstones. The Winston Cluster motif brings the beauty of remarkable diamonds and gemstones to life, accentuating their inherent sparkle and brilliance. Adding a romantic nod to the signature design, Harry Winston offers a variation on its classic design with a fiery heart-shaped ruby with four marquise-shaped diamond cluster accents. This is the perfect gift to commemorate the love you feel for that special someone.
When it comes to brands that know how to market the notion of love, Tiffany & Co. is one of the best. Having created inspiring love stories since 1837, the brand continues its trademark of “love has no end—only new beginnings”. Of all the brand’s Valentine’s offerings, LUXUO has selected the Tiffany Soleste cushion-cut yellow diamond halo engagement ring in platinum as a memorable departure from double-row hingle bangles and the classic heart-shaped pieces.
Speaking of the aforementioned classic heart-shaped pieces, indulge in Bulgari’s exclusive Valentine’s Day release that embodies the joyful and vibrant energy which brings people together. For jewellery, the refined Divas’ Dream bracelets in rose gold celebrate love with their signature shape pendants, artfully set with carnelian and mother-of-pearl inserts. Rooted in Bulgari’s Roman heritage, the aesthetic signature of the collection is adorned with precious pavé diamonds, in an ode to graceful, and timeless elegance. Besides this, the collection also includes distinctive B.zero1 bangles, as well as the mesmerising Serpenti jewellery creations, which all make for a meaningful declaration of love this Valentine’s Day.
Louis Vuitton has revealed their selection for this year’s Valentine’s Day that takes the form of an inspired approach to gifting ideas. The release signals a sophisticated approach to gift-giving with the timeless Alma BB bag that falls under one of the House’s four lively themes dubbed “Romantic Symphony”. Here’s why the Alma is a standout; besides being a versatile staple, the Alma BB handbag traces its pedigree to an Art Deco original, with signature details that impart a timeless elegance to this model crafted from the brand’s famed monogram canvas.
Coach celebrates the day of love with a special capsule collection. The label’s Valentine’s Day edit features bags, ready-to-wear and small leather goods in different shades of red, symbolising passion and love. While heart shapes appear in a variety of red accents, LUXUO opted for a casual, can’t-go-wrong sweater that doubles as both a look for a date night or as a gift for a special someone. The collection also comes in an assortment of practical bags, from striking red to more toned-down bubblegum pink as an additional piece for a loved one who appreciates a staple ready-to-wear accessory.
Gucci Beauty presents a curation of makeup looks that highlight (pun intended) the essence of love —from romantic rosy cheeks to sultry smoky eyes. First off, captivate your Valentine with a dreamy romantic look thanks to soft, delicate hues that evoke a tender allure. The Gucci Blush de Beauté in 01 Silky Rose imparts a rosy, youthful glow with its light and subtle shade. This powder blush can be used for a rush of colour on both cheeks and eyes to create a natural look, elevated by light shades of pink.
Jo Malone London
Spice up your date night with a refreshing release from Jo Malone London. Their Roses Collection P celebrates their rose fragrances as the perfect, alternative gift to a fresh bouquet of flowers. The Roses Collection consists of three limited-edition rose scents, each showing a different side to this iconic fragrance ingredient: Rose Blush, Rose & Magnolia, and Rose Amber. Expect a selection of sensual floral scents with its own mysterious character.
