Having this thing with Turtlenecks

Just as #IHaveThisThingWithFloors, I started this season obsessing over turtleneck tops. I actually used to hate them. I felt bothered around the neck as if I couldn’t breathe. Looking back, it seemed I hadn’t chosen the right design. Then, I found this super comfortable H&M model in a soft supple material with a short mock turtleneck. I have gone gaga over turtleneck tops ever since! To create a chic day outfit, I tuck it in a suede patchwork skirt and put on an oversized coat. A pair of black ankle boots and leather bag completes this look for an event at Hublot.

Celebrities at Hublot Manufacture
A few days ago, I was invited to take part in the official opening of Hublot’s second manufacturing building in Nyon near Geneva. The atmosphere of the event exemplifies the brand. We see the charismatic chairman Jean-Claude Biver feting an upbeat international crowd The glitterati guest list included supermodel Bar Refaeli, and Ferrari heir Lapo Elkann. We were given the privilege to tour the Hublot Manufacture to see first-hand and close-up how their watches are made. The skills and patience of the watchmakers were just mind-blowing. I was equally impressed to learn of the technology that goes behind the materials and components. The visit leaves you wanting to own a Hublot watch! Let me share the experience of my visit with these backstage pictures.
