Literary rendezvous with Chanel and more
In fashion, you follow the trends and header lines. Here’s a recap of what the fashion world has delivered this month:
Tiffany & Co. launches long-awaited “About Love” campaign
In August, Tiffany & Co. teased its big campaign starring powerful couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z. A month later, luxury jewelers launch the full campaign film by famous director Emmanuel Adjei. The film features an enchantingly beautiful take on “Moon River” performed by Beyoncé while her husband Jay-Z seems mesmerized and inspired by capturing the performance on a Super 8 camera. Bey wears an assortment of diamond pieces, but all of them all eyes are on the Tiffany diamond, considered one of the most important gemstone finds of the 19th century.
