Two emerging accessories brands out of Hong Kong, Rock Candy and Chouette have recently come together to create a two-pack of watches dubbed the “Beauty & The Beast” collection. The watch set is the first of three product launches as it embodies the polar opposite representations of each respective brand. The “BEAUTY” BLK EDITION features a a minimlaistic black case with a full Pave dial and 502 black CRYSTALLIZED Swarovski Elements while the “BEAST” BLK EDITION is done in completely in black except for the hot pink hands.
A brand with an extensive history, Levi’s 1944 501 model references to the Second World War era. In this reproduction version, all excess metal, fabric and threads were removed in order to help the war effort. The iconic Arcuate stitching also had to be taken away, as a result, Levi’s began to paint the design on instead of traditional methods. This can now be purchased through The Three Threads, London at the price of £155 ($248 USD).
