Two famed French design houses have collaborated on the ultimate gift this holiday season. Boucheron and renowned travel goods-maker Goyard are enticing style connoisseurs with 80 glittering, limited-edition timepiece sets. Each set is comprised of a chevron-patterned canvas Goyardine case containing a yellow gold Reflet watch with three interchangeable straps in gold, white, and black. On the back of the watch casing, an engraving celebrates the Place Vendôme — the inspiration for the the first coming together of the luxury labels back in 1936. Boucheron and Goyard were founding members of a committee (later renamed Comité Vendôme) whose mission was to unite neighborhood maisons, as well as to preserve and promote the reputation of the fashionable Parisian square.
