It is about time Cheongdam-dong got its very own Miu Miu boutique. After all, the busy street in Gangnam is known as the shopping district for the affluent. More than 400 of the city’s most fashionable were in attendance for the opening of the Italian label’s store, including lots of celebrities you’d be familiar with. Well, if you know your Korean pop culture then names such as Tiffany of Girls’ Generation, model Lee Soo-Hyuk and CNBLUE bassist Lee Jung-Shin will not be unfamiliar.
The store is typically Miu Miu– outside, the iconic perforated metal curtain envelops its entrance, a juxtaposition to its soft, feminine interior. Don’t expect the usual gold damask to greet you in the store, it has been replaced by a sky-blue version that is unique to the Cheongdam-dong boutique. Its ground floor houses the latest range of bags, accessories and shoes, and is separated from the first floor with a black marble staircase. The store’s upper floor is dedicated to the label’s ready-to-wear collection.

TIFFANY & CO. is heralding the arrival of Autumn 2015 with three sparkling new diamond jewelry collections.
“Tiffany Victoria“, “Tiffany Bow” and “Tiffany Infinity” have been designed by the legendary jewelers to celebrate the “cherished connections between friends and loved ones.”
Family and friends feature heavily in the collections’ new campaign, with sisters Dree and Langley Fox Hemingway, longtime model friends Crista Cober and Imaan Hammam and supermodel Doutzen Kroes and her son Phyllon all taking a starring role. The black and white ads, shot by fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, show the new jewels layered gracefully and paired with lacy, feminine fashion choices. The creative also shot a short film around the theme of “the joys of being together”.
“Tiffany jewelry has long symbolized relationships that bring happiness and meaning to life,” said Caroline Naggiar, Tiffany’s chief marketing officer.
“It’s part of our great legacy, and we are proud to feature real life families in this campaign, adding a genuine emotional component to the designs’ style and beauty.”
The house’s design director Francesca Amfitheatrof has added round and pear-shaped diamonds to the Tiffany Victoria collection to represent the delicacy of petals. Her Tiffany Bow was inspired by a slender thread you might tie around your finger to remember something or someone, and her Tiffany Infinity collection, inspired by the energy and vitality of an ancient symbol, has been contoured in a contemporary way.

Whenever a celebrity tries to sell something expensive on eBay there’s always speculation as to motives, but here’s a case where it’s pretty obvious what the deal is: music producer Scott Storch is short on cash. He’s selling his yacht, called “Tiffany,” on eBay for well under its $20 million value (per Rolling Stone magazine) because apparently he can’t afford to keep it anymore. As of right now it’s going for just under $1,000,000. What a deal.
I’m no eBaying expert but I’m not sure it’s such a great sales technique to display in big bold letters “THE BOAT IS BEING SOLD UNDER DISTRESS ,OWNER BOUGHT HER AND NOW GOT SHORT ON MONEY.” Seems more than a little on the tacky side, and hardly inspires the celebrity “cool” factor that might help it sell for more.
UPDATE: Bidding has ended at $1,000,101, that’s a fair amount of cash but not enough to meet the reserve, looks like Storch is going to have to try again.
