“I’m a big fan of the Apple Watch® and love the functionality. It is perfectly designed for the sporty lifestyle but something was missing – there was no fine jewelry element to it,” said LAGOS Founder and Creative Director Steven Lagos. “I really wanted to create a bracelet that would transform it from a casual watch to a jewelry watch.”
Smart Caviar is designed with the same fine craftsmanship that defines LAGOS jewelry and the ease of wear that makes it perfect for every day. Smart Caviar flawlessly layers with other LAGOS designs and is simple to style. The bracelets are engineered to slip easily in and out of the Apple Watch® head and come with a sizing tool and extra links to ensure a comfortable fit.
“Bloomingdale’s is thrilled to launch Smart Caviar with LAGOS,” said Erica Russo, Bloomingdale’s Vice President and Fashion Director for Accessories and Beauty. “This is the first fine jewelry option we have offered for smartwatches and we love the way luxury meets modern functionality. From sterling silver to gold and diamonds, there is truly something for everyone.”
The collection marries technology with fine jewelry to offer an elegant option for Apple Watch® wearers to express their personal style. It’s a special piece for the LAGOS collector and also the next generation LAGOS customer. The collection is available now in all Bloomingdale’s stores nationwide and on Bloomingdales.com and is being supported by a 360° marketing program.
