Hugo Boss

Boss Selection - High-end (Menswear)

BOSS Selection is a collection created with the most sophisticated clientele in mind, offering classic, high quality suits in the designer segment. The collection is characterized by an extraordinary level of quality, both in the materials used as well as the meticulous attention to detail (partially hand finished) extended to the whole production process.

Boss Black - Sophisticated

The men's and women's collections in this line offer a wide range of styles, from formal suits to casualwear and to the more elegant lines of eveningwear. Garments always feature extreme wearability, elegant cut and fabric quality.

Boss Orange - Sporty and Casual

It is the informal and sportswear line for men and women. It is aimed at consumers who prefer to dress casually, appreciate special materials, strong colours and original details, but who also value the workmanship and quality of BOSS garments.

Boss Green - Completely Sporty

BOSS Green, the collection of technical sports attire, is positioned in the upper end of the casual segment and is designed for men who want to look refined both during and after their sporting endeavours. The collection stands out for its use of technical, breathable, and waterproof materials to suit the chosen sport. During the planning phase designers work closely with athletes to test product efficiency.

Hugo - Unconventional

The line includes menswear (HUGO Menswear) and womenswear (HUGO Womenswear), with collections that combine creativity and individuality in a style that is non-conventional and innovative.

Ralph Lauren

Gosh! It's complicated. Hope it helps.

In 1967, Ralph Lauren establishes the Polo label with an instantly successful line of ties. In direct opposition to the narrow ties and conventional styles of the time, Lauren designs wide, handmade ties using unexpected, flamboyant, opulent materials. The ties quickly become a menswear status item.

Ralph Lauren Purple Label

Ralph Lauren Purple Label (in the classic British style) is the highest end men's fashion from Ralph Lauren. It includes ready-to-wear suits and sportcoats (made by St. Andrews and Cantarelli), dress shirts, sportswear, accessories, and footwear, as well as a collection of made-to-order suits, sportcoats, shoes (made by British company Edward Green), dress shirts, exotic skin luggage, small leather goods, and jewelry.

Ralph Lauren Collection

Ralph Lauren Collection is the highest end women's clothing line from Ralph Lauren (which also carries a purple tag), as seen in his runway shows. The collection includes classic eveningwear, tailored blazers, outerwear, sportswear, handbags, and accessories.

Ralph Lauren Black Label

Black Label for men tends to have a more modern, Italian cut to its suits, sportcoats (made by Raffaele Caruso), dress shirts, and sportswear, with higher armholes and a slimmer silhouette.

Black Label for women is an extension of the Collection line. It is modern, high-end casual and semi-formal women's wear.

Polo Ralph Lauren

Polo Ralph Lauren is the most widely available men's collection from Ralph Lauren. This 'blue label' line is the first collection from Ralph Lauren. It spans from tailored clothing (ready-to-wear and made to measure), sportswear, accessories (including luggage) to small leather goods.

Ralph Lauren Blue Label

Similar in price point and styling to the Polo Ralph Lauren (the men's line). It has the classic American styling. Knit polo-style shirts with the Polo pony are part of the Blue Label line.

Lauren Ralph Lauren

Basics and suiting for men (which is divided into Green and Silver). Less pricey versions of Blue Label styles for ladies.

Tiffany Patek Philippe Salon

In celebrating the 1st anniversary of the opening of the Patek Philippe Salon at the flagship store of Tiffany & Co. in New York, the two companies have launched a co-branded wristwatch, the Ladies' Gondolo. Double-signed with Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co., the Ladies' Gondolo will be sold exclusively at the Tiffany Patek Philippe Salon in New York.

Joining the salons in Geneva, London, Paris and Shanghai, the 3,000-square-foot salon is the first Patek Philippe in the United States (which opens in April, 2008), and the fifth in worldwide.

In fact, the Ladies' Gondolo isn't the first timepiece collection that Tiffany has teamed up with Patek. The first collaboration between the founders of the two companies, Antoine Norbert de Patek and Charles Lewis Tiffany, was started in 1851.

This exhibition brings together a number of works (paintings, photographs, video installations) by European, American and Chinese artists.

These reflect an urban and energetic culture, leading to fictional landscapes, somewhere between dream and adventure. Artists include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Paul Chan, Cao-Fei, Yang Fudong, Gilbert & George, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Andreas Gursky, Pierre Huyghe, Jeff Koons, Bertrand Lavier, Christian Marclay, and Richard Prince, etc.

After a year of rumors, Patek Philippe has come to a decision in abandoning the Geneva Seal (Geneva Hallmark) to be engraved on its watch collections.

As a complete manufacture, Patek Philippe not only sustains a unique level of vertical integration in movements. But, it also produces its watch cases, and other key exterior elements in-house.

The quality at Patek Philippe relates not merely to the movements.

But, it also relates to the entire finished watch.
