The current issue of Vogue - with mega superstar Beyonce on the front cover – has featured the latest British luxury watch brand, duMaurier in its seasonal watch shoot.
Vogue’s resident Jewellery editor - Carol Woolton – features the limited edition ‘Maxim’ model for men for the perfect accessory for this season’s catwalk trend for tailored suits for women.
Paying homage to one of the greatest British writers of the last century, the grandson of the late Dame Daphne du Maurier, Ned du Maurier Browning, celebrates his family legacy with an accomplished, Swiss-made watch collection. Blending 20th century English story-telling heritage with 21st century design, Du Maurier Watches announces the launch of its first limited edition collection for men and women, available exclusively from www.dumaurierwatches.com
The inception of Du Maurier Watches is the result of Ned’s lifelong passion for watches alongside his wish to celebrate his family heritage.
Reprieving two of literature’s most memorable characters from the 1930’s, this refined, quintessentially English, online watch label debuts with two models: the Maxim for men – impeccably turned out, smart and classic; and the ‘Rebecca’ for women – elegant yet edgy and understatedly ostentatious.

The week is not complete in London town without a copy of ESMagazine poking out of one’s laden bags…
The newly installed Senior Editor of the Evening Standard glossy – Rebecca Newman – has chosen some goodies stocked at our client, Coco de Mer for the day of romance. After personally sampling Lelo’s massage oil infused with 18carat gold flakes the bejewelled lotion made the slot… along with the sterling silver Butterfly nipples by London’s favourite jeweller (normally less naughty) Alex Monroe, Bethany Vernon’s Puff Ring jewellery and Paul Seville’s lace gauntlets.
Naughty but nicely risque – making the day for lovers just a little bit sassier in 2012…
