KEEPING UP ON TIME WITH EBEL

Pictures by James Chardon

URBAN MOOD As many of you have already discovered throughout our previous editorials, I do have quite a close relationship with watches as I grew up in a country where we have a fabulous market as well as a big respect and knowledge of quality regarding the mechanisms and craftmaship in the watch industry, these usually circulate from generation to generation and become a real family heritage. As I am more of a fashion peep, I do love innovating and playing with my watch as if it was an accessory, because let’s all admit that nowadays, watches are just the best accessory for a modern and active woman. Not only does it look great, but it’s also so usefull (especially when the battery of your phone dies in the middle of the day, and you thank the holy grail that you’ve got your watch on your wrist to keep you up on time with the meetings and other appointments).

In this article I am wearring a really beautiful model from one of my favourite watch brands, Ebel. The exact reference is EBEL 100 on mesh bracelet (green accents) and I love how it’s so modern, minimalistic but so timeless at the same time as well. I feel like it fits me as much as it could fit my boyfriend (who by the way loved it, saw him sneaking around and trying it on!). To correspond to the vibe of this watch I decided to play around with kind of a boy-ish look (which I am not really used to, but I enjoy trying new things out) but of course as always, with a lot of elegance by pairing in with this gorgeous Valentino bag from Monnier Frères. What kind of relationship do you guys have with watches?

I’m a big fan of watches. At the moment I’m wearing a Michael Kors one, but I can’t wait to get my first “real watch”.. dreaming of a Cartier

Can’t say anything bad about this particular outfit, but in general I’d prefer to see more colourful looks on you, sweetie…
I mean they suit you and it is finally summer in Europe too! :D

It’ true, watch is the most useful accesory, you can not rely on phone, but you know that your pretty watch won’t fail when you need the time! Really like the mix of boyfriend jeans and chic bag!

perfect and simple What about the make up? Which colour do you wear on your lips? It´s the perfect nude I think.
And of course congratulations for your blog¡¡¡ I have a curiosity If you wouldn´t mind to answer. Bazan is an Spanish surname, from the north of Spain. Do you have family there? Greetings from Spain. Kitty Alvarez.

Je suis ton blog quotidiennement depuis près de deux an, et je trouve que les articles pour la promotion d’une marque mais sans le dire – comme ccelui ci ou tu ne parles pas de collaboration avec Ebel – sont lourds. Sur toutes les photos apparaît la montre; je sais que c’est ton travail de bloggeuse de faire de la pub pour les marques, mais certaines fois, ça manque de subtilité. Je trouve ça dommage et assez désagréable.

Love this more masculine look on you! I’ve never owned a watch because here in Australia the timepiece industry isn’t as big – but I might get a nice gold one soon!

I love watsches. you are right, it is the best accessoire! your watch is fantastic, with the green details!

Shoes are a flop for me…
Great watch!

Wow, what a gorgeous look. It is different styling to what your readers are used to seeing, but you look beautiful! The watch is incredible and as with all Swiss watch manufacturers, I imaging the quality of Ebel watched to be superb.

you look so stylish in it and it looks beyond comfy, wow!

Wearing your pants like this makes your legs look sooo short! I don’t like it.. BUT the bag is gorgeous! :)

Beautiful! And i love your outfit, amazing!

I love watches and when I wear one, I feel as if my wrists don’t need anything else. I have plenty of old watches from Switzerland which work with winding (they don’t work now, actually, and can hardly be repaired, but I wear them like accessories anyway). :)

I absolutely never wear watches.Probably because the ones I like are the most expensive. However maybe I should get one to use for my exams that are coming forward
Xoxo

@anonymous : Yes I do use tanning cream, because we barely had sun in the past couple of weeks in Switzerland and my skin was so damn pale, needed a little glow :) I use Guerlain’s terracota one. It doesn’t smell too much so I like it.

@anonymous : First of all thank you so much for your loyalty, following Kayture since 2 years that’s just so great. I am really greatfull, so thanks. Regarding your remark concerning the collaborations, we are thinking currently with James on a way to show you guys how we work on the blog and how projects are build up, maybe through a video for example! I feel like there is so much prejudice regarding how bloggers in general earn and how they are more and more currupted, maybe it’s because of all the buzz and discussions in the medias. My blog is my baby, when I started I was 17 and had noo idea I could even work with a brand one day. Now we have this huge chance to work with brands that we love, and work on projects that I would have dreamed of doing a couple of years ago but couldn’t. Now I can show you guys a lot of new and different articles, by working with brands that we love, that won’t affect our editorial line because each label is selected with a lot of attention.

The most important for both James and I is our content. I mean, we’re swiss, so quality is really the key for us! Such as being honest and transparent towards my readership of course.

xxxxxx

Believe me, I am the very first to get crazy of anger at agencies who suggest the same project to 50 bloggers, with good earning but terrible, cheap and bad quality products… Blogs aren’t advertisement platforms for damn sake! And you can see when a blog is not authentic for the very first second, because it won’t have any editorial line and will accept to work with any brand.

I care about creating unique, authentic, visually interesting content which is true to my style, my sense of fashion and life in general. Working with labels has enriched us so much, we’ve learned so many interesting things and that’s how you aquire an expertise and grow as a proffessional.

I don’t want to isolate myself from these opportunities, but embrace them in the most postive and organic way possible.

Hope this replies to your comment!
(had a lot of stuff to say haha)

love this outfit, you look amazing!

CUKOR

I love seeing family heirloom of great watches, stories behind those watches really intrigue me. I just inherited my Mum’s Gucci watch and I love it so, but I think more about the story behind it, like where my Mum wore it to etc. So, definitely investing in a watch heirloom for my future children!
