Watches for men are almost the same as bags for women: they show the status and style at the same time. Qualitative designer watches can serve for decades and do not look outdated. However, here we are going to make a quick review of main fashion trends in men’s watches industry for the 2011 year.
New and the most reasonable trends of men watches were presented at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2011 exhibition in Geneva. The critics tell us that the black PVD and DLC watches have still the strong positions in for the following years. Also, the diameter of watchcases still growths in 2011.
A good example comprising these ongoing trends is Montblanc with its Time Walker TwinFly Chronograph.

Below you will see a short review of main stars of the exhibition that tend to be 2011 best sellers among luxury brands.

Panerai is one of the most popular manufacturers of large watches.
For 2011 Panerai introduces a new Luminor Marina model, the PAM00386. This watch is a great feedback to the huge demand for vintage style raised recently. Dark brown dial, vintage-looking leather strap, making them look “old” are combined with 44mm diameter composite case and its in-house caliber P.9000 movement with a three-day power reserve what makes them extremely trendy and at the same time useful.

The Navitimer which is manufactured since 1952, is one of the most favored models among watch admirers. The Navi, stands for navigation and refers to the slide rule bezel that can be used by pilots to make some calculations. This year Breitling decided to accomplish their iconic watch with an in-house movement.
The Breitling Navitimer Caliber 01 is a column wheel chronograph with a 70-hour power reserve. The tri-compax layout (subdials on 9, 3 and 6 o’clock) calls back to the original design of 1952.

New Gucci style

GUCCI | February 11, 2011

Classic Gucci style and its visiting card was aggressive black cigarette pants and box jackets, when the renowned starts stylist Tom Ford left the fashion house and a new creative director, Frida Giannini, was appointed. Renewed Gucci style is characterized by floral floaty dresses, feminine and non-agressive accessories. Of course, the main Gucci attributes are still there, but as Ron Frasch, vice chairman of the U.S. retail emporium Saks Fifth Avenue, says
“The Gucci aggressiveness is still there but it is softer”.
About her first complete collection shown in 2006 Giannini says: “It was wonderful to work with one image from the beginning of the collection to the end and make it all coherent, from the accessories to the clothes”.
Even from the moment when fashionistas crowded into the spring-summer 2006 runway show, there was a different feel. The black lacquer, typical for Gucci was gone, its place took wooden parquet. At the beginning of the show there were noticed some Gucci black basics, but then the show has turned into the colors rejoice. Instead of classic black dresses were shown fuchsia and emerald green gowns, reminding the Hollywood era of Katherine Hepburn. Giannini’s attempts to change Gucci’s style from Tom Ford’s designs, by drawing inspiration from Gucci’s heritage, were not received by critics. However, collection Flora, inspired by the designs from Gucci’s archives, was the first commercial success of the new creative director of the fashion house. Giannini also took some inspirations from 1970s Gucci designs. She designed a collection of skirts and plunging swimsuits in brown, orange, and yellow flowers typical for that period.

Frida Giannini says about her view on the new Gucci style: “Sexiness is in Gucci’s DNA but maybe I interpret it differently, being a woman and dressing women of my generation”.

Gucci Techno Horsebit Shoulder Bag

GUCCI, Handbags | February 4, 2011


What is your opinion about this tote? I mean your real attitude towards its design. What would you think if it wasn’t Gucci? I find its design a bit “overworked”.
The style pretends to be modern and even futuristic but what those brushes and braided handles are doing here then? Too many details for my taste. When we buy a brand accessory first of all we are paying incredible sums of money for the unique design and quality. I am sure in its quality, but weather the snazzy design isn’t a privilege of cheap brands? I mean from Gucci we expect elegance and quality but this style barely can be called elegant. It is rather eclectic.
Actually it’s my subjective opinion, but what do you think, what is better a crazy mess of details or laconic design?
I do like this bag but if I buy it I definitely get rid of those brushes.
