Contributing Editor Reese Pereira recently attend a fantastic event for Timex. This is her account of the gorgeous watches you just need to get your hands on. Like, now.
You know the old saying “Everything old is new again?” Well, when it comes to fashion, it couldn’t be more true! My mother always told me to never throw anything out because it always comes back into fashion in one way or another. I have a feeling many people will probably feel the same way when they check out the new Timex collection: “Originals.”
This fantastic new collection, a series of remixed designs from the brand’s archives, will be showcased for a limited time at Henri Bendel’s Fifth Avenue window shop on the first floor from now until August 30th. It includes Timex classics such as the Camper and Easy Reader, reinterpreted to appeal to a more contemporary audience with larger faces and fashion-forward colors. Oh, and get this: the price range for the collection is $50 – $110, which is a mind blowing steal for the quality and style of these extremely cool watches! Get to Henri Bendel’s now to get your watches before it’s too late, because with that kind of design and at that price, they won’t be around very long.
Spotted at the launch party for Timex “Originals” was Olivia Palermo, wearing the Timex Originals Easy Reader with brown metallic strap ($60), my personal favorite in the collection. Gossip Girl Kelly Rutherford was spotted with the Timex Originals 1940s Inspiration with Black Face and Green Canvas Strap ($95) and Jamie-Lynn Sigler was rocking the Oversized Gold Digital ($80.) Like I said, I love them all so I can agree with these gorgeous celebs: Timex is where it’s AT this season!
There is something for everyone in the new collection – from the vintage round faces to the kitschy gold plating and 80′s rad neon digitals. With attention to detail that makes them look like they’ve been passed from generation to generation, I have a feeling accessory addicts everywhere are going to love this new collection. I know I definitely do!
