Just Cavalli Just Dream Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Just Cavalli WatchesItalian designer Roberto Cavalli goes beyond just producing stylish products; he creates trends. Cavalli invented the sandblasted technique for jeans. It’s now a staple in the jeans category, because the process gives each pair a unique pattern that looks natural and lived in and also changes over time to express individuality. Cavalli applies original thought to all his diverse verticals including watches.

The Just Cavalli Just Dream watch collection, part of the extension brand designed specifically for the contemporary, international and more youthful Cavalli customer, highlights Cavalli’s talent for anticipating their tastes and style.

The Just Dream collection is a feminine tribute to the versatility of color and contains a playful energy. Fashion shows have lit up the runways with vivid color and the Just Dream collection taps into this trend. Purple, aqua, pink and lime hues are represented in the line, representing the sunny, recreational and carefree days of summer.

Interestingly, in addition to the presence of color for the season, there is also a movement towards monochromatic compositions this season. The Just Dream collection also offers models for those who prefer this fashion forward look. There are choices of colors in white, silver, rose gold, cocoa, chocolate and white.

The Just Dream collection comes in a modern sized 38 mm stainless steel case that’s fits right into the mode of larger watches, yet it’s not so large as to overwhelm a woman’s wrist.

There are nine models in the collection to appeal to the various personalities.

Finishes on the cases include steel, yellow gold PVD, rose gold PVD, zebra colored texture and come on a comfy silicone strap with buckle closure that keeps your wrist cool for the hot and sticky summer months.

Powered by a quartz movement, the Just Cavalli Dream collection is water resistant to 99 feet. And, because they are all at a very reasonable price point, you can select more than one to express your different moods. Purchase your Just Cavalli watch from an authorized Just Cavalli Dealer.

The Amazingly Versatile Actor Joe Mantegna

Joe Mantagna as David Rossi in Criminal Minds


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Haurex WatchesJoe Mantegna might not get the pubic attention of a Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt or Bradley Cooper, but the actor has got the chops and talent to compete with the best of them. He’s a true actor, not a superstar, rather someone who can disappear into a role and sometimes not be recognized and therefore he can play a range of genres from comedy to drama.

Such is Mantegna’s talent that he has been cast in the comedy Airheads as a harried shock jock and an incompetent kidnapper in Baby’s Day Out. Drawing upon his Italian heritage, he brought to life Joey Zasa, a monstrous mobster in The Godfather Part III. And yes, he sings too, playing Dean Martin in The Rat Pack on HBO, for which his was nominated for an Emmy. Many might not know that Mantegna first went in front of an audience on the stage in the 1969 production of Hair.

Joe Mantegna and acclaimed playwright and screenwriter David Mamet have a long time working relationship, with Joe appearing in such productions as Glengarry Glen Ross, for which he won a Tony, the film House of Games and the TV series Homicide. Mantegna has also been tapped to work with some of the most talented directors in the business, such as Francis Ford Coppola, Barry Levinson, Steven Zaillian and Woody Allen.

Fans of The Simpsons will know him as the voice of mob boss Anthony “Fat Tony” D’Amico. Mantegna loves this role so much that he will voice the character no matter how little dialogue. He has said that it if Fat Tony sneezes, I want to be there.

More than just an actor, Joe Mantegna possesses some other surprising talents and achievements. He’s a writer who co-wrote and played a role in the Emmy award winning play Bleacher Bums, which later went on to play at Chicago’s Organic Theater Company in Mantegna’s home state of Illinois. In addition, he’s musician. A bass player, Joe played in a band called the Apocryphals, which later joined another group called The Missing Links. And here’s the kicker: that group went on to form the well-known group Chicago, but by that time Mantegna had left the band to pursue acting full time. Mantegna still maintains relationships with his old band mates, however.

For his illustrious career, Mantegna received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2011 and received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Los Angeles Italian Film Festival in 2004.

You can now experience Mantegna’s work on the critically acclaimed television series Criminal Minds, where he plays FBI Supervisory Special Agent David Rossi.

Versace Enters the World of Superheros with Kuba Ka

Kuba Ka In His 2013 Hit Song “Stop Feenin”


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Superheroes have been a part of our culture since the 1930’s and 1940’s when Superman first came on the scene to fight for justice in serialized stories in the form of comic books. Other well known superheroes include Spiderman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Wolverine, all fighting for good against evil in fantasy worlds.

However, there has never been a real life Pop Super Hero… until now. Leave it to Donatella Versace, Creative Director of her eponymous fashion empire, to team up with Polish performer, actor, model and musician Kuba Ka to tread into new territory to create the first ever Pop Super Hero. Donatella and Kuba Ka already had a relationship because they worked together to design performance outfits for his dynamic shows. Donatella thought Kuba Ka a great candidate with his larger-than-life personality to enter into this new territory.

Kuba Ka is best known for his 2013 breakout hit song “Stop Feenin” and has collaborated with the best in the industry, including Flavor Fav and Frank Dileo, who was Michael Jackson’s manager for many years. In fact, Jackson also teamed up with Gianni Versace when he was alive to create costumes for his History World Tour in 1996.

The Versace Kuba Ka collaboration is set to go into action when Kuba Ka releases his first album in the United States. Versace revealed the design of the Kuba Ka Superhero costume at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills to a tittering audience of entertainment execs and fans.

In black and gold, the costume is composed of black alligator leather with gold plated metal trimmings with the iconic Versace Medusa worked into the design on the front armor chest plate and back. Using Kuba Ka’s impressive abs, the costume incorporates Baroque print abs based on a sculpture of Kuba’s abs. This bespoke costume was so complex it took five months to produce and is the most expensive costume to be worn by a Pop artist to date.

The choice of Kuba as the first real Pop Superhero isn’t random. Just like comic book superheroes, Kuba has fought for justice through organizing charity events for animals and people and also set up “Kuba Ka Army of Lights”, his own humanitarian organization. Fittingly, Kuba Ka’s superhero will meld with his real life personality to be a musically inclined comic book hero.

Although Versace has dressed many performers with tour outfits, such as Tupac, Axl Rose, Elton John, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, the couture house is taking collaboration a step further to create a new genre. The results are sure to be a groundbreaking spectacle of success.

Versace Yellow Diamond Intense: Heavenly Perfume for Summer

Versace Yellow Diamond Intense Perfume


by Meehna Goldsmith  

The House of Versace guided by the beguiling Creative Director Donatella Versace is more than just a mecca of original and savvy couture that leads the fashion world into exciting new territory. They also trailblaze the way in accessories, including glamorous Swiss made watches and irresistible fragrances. The brand entered the scent world in 2004 with Crystal Noir, inspired by crystals, and has continued to expand their oeuvre.

This summer, the brand will release another delicious scent called Versace Yellow Diamond Intense, which is a bit more potent version than the original Yellow Diamond perfume from 2012. As we move into summer, the scents change from heavier and darker to match the weather into the bright and optimistic palette of florals to mark the change of seasons.

The Original Versace Yellow Diamond Perfume
Versace Yellow Diamond Perfume

Sweet and sexy, Versace Yellow Diamond Intense reflects all the fun, bright and delight of the summer season. Sundresses and sandals come out of the closet, people laze on the beach, congregate at barbecues and hang out in the park. Yellow Diamond Intense’s alluring composition captures this favorite time of year and gives it a fascinating appeal of both mystery and seduction.

Perfumes are composed of notes and layers: an opening, a heart and a base. The opening is what is first smelled. After the first impression, the perfume moves into the heart that combines with the opening and then settles into the base. Yellow Intense first surprises with Mediterranean accords of bergamot, neroli, diamond cedrat and pear sorbet and then woos with a heart combining flowers orange blossom, freesia, jasmine and osmanthus. To give it longevity and seductive heat, it finishes with amber wood, musk benzoin and guaiac wood, which are the “heaviest” notes.

Begamot Orange Blossom Freesia Jasmine


Donatella named the perfume Yellow Diamond Intense because it sparkles like the stone and radiates out in crystalline light with intensity reminiscent of the summer sun. Pure, vivid, floral and unforgettable. Donatella has once again achieved her goal with this perfume.

Versace Yellow Diamond Intense Eau de Parfum is available in a lovely bottle of clean geometric lines in sizes 30, 50 and 100 ml.

Glam Rock Vintage Glam Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Glam Rock WatchesIn the heyday of Hollywood the likes of Barbara Stanwyck, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and Lauren Bacall lit up the big screen. Through their manner, speech, poise, and, of course, their clothing and accessories, they defined what it was to be glamorous.

With the Vintage Glam watch collection, Glam Rock hearkens back to a time when glamour was a way of life. It combines the sparkly sophistication of a nostalgic period with the bold and fashion forward edge of the 21st century. It’s a unique fusion of styles that doesn’t necessarily make for an obvious pairing, but Glam Rock pulls it off and evolves into a new and original genre for the modern woman.

Vintage glamour is all about curves and silhouettes and the Vintage Glam collection captures them both. Glam Rock proves that glamour doesn’t have anything to do with size. There is a statement-making piece that comes in a 45 mm case with eye-popping dials — and soft silicon straps because glamour is also characterized by a tactile sense. However, for those women who prefer a smaller case there are 40 mm and 34 mm sizes as well.

There is also a tonneau and oval shaped case, which fits right into the vintage theme when those cases were more predominant. The Vintage Glam collection incorporates signature characteristics that demonstrate the beautiful meshing of the vintage and modern designs, such as the lovely oversized teardrop-style lugs and large onion crown.

Right on trend, Glam Rock offers the three different styles of watchcases composed of stainless steel, stainless steel with IP gold, and a combination of stainless steel and stainless steel with IP gold.

Glam Rock Bal Harbour Watch Collection

Glam Rock Bal Harbour Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Glam Rock WatchesGlam Rock. The name of this watch brand immediately announces its aesthetic, and while it’s a wild ride of different interpretations of two styles that seemingly don’t go together, Glam Rock pulls it off with flair. A combination of a rock-n-roll sensibility with glamorous touches gives these watches a distinct personality. Moreover, Glam Rock’s creativity continually puts a new spin on the concept with new collections to please every woman’s tastes.

The Swiss made Glam Rock Bal Harbour collection pays tribute to the city Bal Harbour, Florida, a place where the beautiful people from around the world congregate for the culture and to express their trend setting style. Bal Harbour watches reflect this eclectic dynamic with artistic dial designs drenched in color to those with a monochromatic look. Furthermore, the dials offer different designs by displaying 3D flower appliqués or embedded diamonds in the dial and the hour indexes. After all, this is a glamorous brand and what better way to exude glamour than with one of the most coveted and sparkling stones to catch the eye.

Usually straps are a utilitarian part of a watch, a uniform closure that incorporates a color to match the color schema to finish off the look. Glam Rock goes a step further by using the band as an integral part of design with details like double chain link bracelets with weaved genuine leather or leather bands with perforations. There’s also a little secret that’s just for the wearer if she wants to share it. On the back of the rounded caseback is a tortoise look application.

All Bal Harbour models illuminate hands and time graphics for convenient viewing when the sun goes down. In addition another characteristic of these Glam Rock watches are colored cabochons or matte epoxy layers in the crowns and pushers.

The Glam Rock Miami watch collection. Swiss Made and using the best quality materials, the Miami collection abounds with styles from eye-popping color to monochromatic constructions, reflective of the diverse culture backgrounds and clothing that mixes in this metropolitan town.

Since this is Glam Rock we’re talking about, a majority of the dials incorporate diamonds that add a sophisticated wink to its rockin’ style partner. For instance, the Miami GR10521D Python, in a stainless steel case, features a diamond flower on the black dial paired with a genuine python strap for an edgy look that will give any outfit a pop.

The Matelasse GR40418D places diamonds in this pattern on the black dial and gives it a punch by coloring the case in stainless steel and stainless steel IP gold, giving it a hot look. Those fashion forward ladies know that what goes around comes around and the 1980’s two-tone metal combination is du jour again.

Just Cavalli Style Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Just Cavalli WatchesFrom the beginning of his career Roberto Cavalli strived to go against the grain to open up the fashion world to the road less travelled. He leads rather than follows. Since his signature collections skew toward a slightly older audience in style and price point, in 1998, he debuted another line in his oeuvre called Just Cavalli to appeal to a younger, hip crowd that wanted all the edge and vitality of the original designs.

Buy Just Cavalli Style Watch CollectionThe Just Cavalli Style watch collection for women comes through on its promise of fashion forward looks that stand out in a crowd. As the name suggests, the Style collection exudes a vibe that fits the DNA of the brand but does so in a more subdued composition, as opposed to the more showy men’s Rude watch collection, demonstrating Cavalli’s range within the line.

In a nicely proportioned 38 mm stainless steel case, the Just Cavalli Style women’s watch collection is a time only watch with a sweep seconds, dagger hands and grooved crown. But the similarities stop there. Each presents a different face to provide variety to meet a woman’s personality so she can make her own statement.

The dial of Just Cavalli Style R7251594502 resembles a meteorite with sparkly stripes against a black background and Arabic numerals at the quarter hours. The Just Cavalli logo and seconds hand in gold give the dial nice contrast, while the tiger striped bezel adds just the right amount of the brand’s signature funky style. The watch, in a stainless steel case, secures to the wrist with a black leather strap.

Another dial, that of Just Cavalli Style R7251594503, takes the tiger striped theme and places it in a grey and white pattern on the dial and bezel. The sparkly theme shows up again on the dial, but in a completely different composition. Crystals are embedded in the baton style hour indexes with the Just Cavalli logo at the top with a blue seconds hand ticking with accurate time. In a stainless steel case, this timepiece wraps around the wrist with a white leather strap. A similar watch (Just Cavalli Style R7253594502) uses all of these elements but changes the bezel to black and white and attaches it to a stainless steel bracelet.

Continuing with the sparkling theme, the Just Cavalli Style R7253594503 features a silver dial with crystals in the center surrounded by Arabic and baton hour indexes in gold. The bezel this time looks more animalistic with its colors in brown and gold. A two-tone bracelet attaches to the two-tone styled watch, right on trend for the resurgence of the gold and silver combination.

The Just Cavalli Style R7253594501 goes another route for those who like an all gold look, which, by the way, has made a comeback in accessories too. In all gold (stainless steel with IP gold coating), the watch has a monochrome look with its gold tiger striped dial, gold tiger stripe Arabic numerals and gold seconds hand, along with the gold tiger striped bezel. The watch comes on an IP gold stainless steel bracelet.

Buy Just Cavalli Style Watch CollectionFor that Just Cavalli character to suit all tastes in a more dialed down presentation, the Style women’s collection is just the ticket. Purchase your Just Cavalli watch from an authorized Just Cavalli Dealer.

Versace Leda Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versace WatchesIf anyone knows that the proper accessories can transform a good outfit into the territory of excellence, it’s Donatella Versace, Creative Director of the eponymous brand her brother Gianni founded and she now leads. The Versace Leda watch collection is imbued with a versatile quality that will bring an extra kick to any outfit.

With the Versace logo right under the 12 o’clock position, the dial exudes chic style with its mother of pearl inlay surrounded by applied Roman numerals. Since it’s more time intensive to apply numerals than stamp them on, this is another detail that exemplifies Versace’s commitment to luxury. Circling the dial are beveled sword hands that give off a nice glint of light at the proper angle.

The Versace Leda collection comes in a nicely sized 38 mm stainless steel case framed by an engraved Greek key bezel that also appears on the crown, one of the signature emblems of the house of Versace. Another sign of the detail and care that goes into a Versace timepiece is that the Leda’s Greek Key bezel is finished with both polished and matte textures.

Within the Leda collection are several different models, and while they are from the same collection, the design elements give them distinct looks. The case comes in stainless steel, IP gold or a combination of both. The two-tone style is very hot this season and is a great look. Dial colors range from gold and white to pink and black, some with sunray finish and others with guilloché.

A watch doesn’t come together unless its fitted with the proper strap and the Leda pairs the designs with just the right tones of black or pink crocodile print leather straps to match the dial, or a two tone or IP rose gold steel bracelet, all with a butterfly buckle.

The Swiss made Versace Leda has the right amount of attitude and sophistication to dress up your wrist this summer—and all year long. Purchase your new Leda watch from an authorized Versace dealer.

Versace Men’s V-Ray Watch Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

Fueled by Purpose, Steeped in Style

Versace WatchesChronographs prove consistently that they are the jewels of men’s watch complications. The attraction is innate: chronographs categorically represent racing sport, speed and competing against the clock. The ability to successfully style a chronograph watch for the contemporary gent, however, is no easy feat. One collection of watches that does strike the fine balance between elegance and sport with both polish and aplomb is the Versace V-Ray.

The V-Ray leads with an ample 44 mm stainless steel case available in four distinct versions (polished steel, two in rose gold IP and one in gray IP). A prominent aspect of the case is the two-tier lug construction, with the inner tier overlaying the bezel. This case-and-bezel integration adds a subtle but effective visual nuance, much like the way a claw setting is used to emphasize a gem. The bezel, which features a tachymeter scale, is made of stainless steel with versions in black, gray or rose gold IP.

Polished piston-style pushers are another reference to motor racing. The pusher heads are colored to match the chosen accent color of the particular watch, as is the stripe that appears through the center of the crown, which features wide fluting and the Versace Medusa head symbol. The chronograph seconds hand and ring atop the rehaut are also colored to match – a visual effect that neatly ties the case and dial together.

The sophisticated look of the V-Ray case is surpassed only by the cohesive and composed appearance of the dial. The triple-register layout has sub-dials positioned as follows: a perpetual seconds sub-dial at 3 o’clock, a 10-hour chronograph counter at 6 o’clock and a 30-minute counter at 9 ‘clock. The sub-dials are on a background of silver or black (depending on the model) with complementary or contrasting colored indexes. Luminous hands, a date aperture at 4 o’clock and the Versace wordmark round out the elements of the inner dial.

The outer portion of the dial is classic Versace: superbly arranged, with a Greek key pattern in a track around the chapter ring that is fluent in appearance. Applied luminous hour markers divide the track. The aforementioned rehaut is angled gently outward to display the seconds/minutes indexes.

A sporty, padded black leather strap featuring stitching to match the accent color (in red, yellow or blue) complements the other black elements of the watch. The exception is the blue-dial model, which has a rose gold case and employs a blue strap with blue stitching. Every strap employs a fold-over clasp.

At the heart of this chronograph is a precision Ronda 5040D quartz movement with a lengthy 54-month-average battery life. A solid caseback affixed by four screws assists in netting the watch 165 feet of water resistance.

Chronographs urge us to be better and faster. The V-Ray by Versace proves that such energy-fueled motives need not come at the sacrifice of good taste. By combining both of these parts of a man’s personality, V-Ray watches let you explore your high-performance self in style – contact an authorized Versace dealer and choose your favorite V-Ray today.
