Imperial Grace and Happy Blooms

Chopard welcomes a high-precision complication in its celestial empire, a first-time jumping hours timepiece, and a jewelled trio of flowery watches with dancing diamonds – all seen at the ongoing Watches and Wonders 2021 in Geneva.

For the world’s most exclusive, annual Geneva-based watch event, Watches and Wonders 2021, the Swiss maison of Chopard, continues its Impériale line with a brand new moonphase timepiece, a jumping-hour timepiece (Chopard’s very first), a trio of Haute Joaillerie watches in sorbet hues with dancing diamonds framed by an exquisite halo of marquise-cut coloured gemstones, and Happy Hearts Flowers that breeze into into its fine jewellery line.

Under the vision and leadership of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, and made in Swiss workshops in Geneva and Fleurier, Chopard timepieces are all about heritage (the maison was founded in 1860), and innovation.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
