Central Park in the Fall

A day of giving thanks. I’ve been sitting in the studio all morning thinking about the things I am thankful for. There are so many, so many in fact I’ll keep it simple with just this one ~ a beautiful afternoon spent walking around Central Park in the fall. I am thankful for this simple memory and those few hours away from all the details of life.

I hope you have many things to be thankful for this holiday break and

may that list grow with each passing  year.

“Everything about autumn is perfect to me. Wooly jumpers, Wellington boots, scarves, thin first, then thick, socks. The low slanting light, the crisp mornings, the chill in my fingers, those last warm sunny days before the rain and the wind. Her moody hues and subdued palate punctuated every now and again by a brilliant orange, scarlet or copper goodbye. She is my true love.”

― Alys Fowler

Autumn Days

There is nothing like the light on a crisp autumn afternoon or a walk through Central Park as the leaves just begin to fall and crackle under your steps. Fall is my favorite season. The explosion of color saturation reminding you life is bursting at the seams while in the same glance the delicate falling leaves that show us all too well the presence of fleeting time.

Autumn landscapes just go hand in hand with road trips… the quiet solitude of driving, looking, and observing all the beauty of the season. My first road trip to Vermont in the fall was with my father. I had never seen such natural beauty and felt peace in such quiet spaces. I like to set memories to music. The memories I’ve made with the people I love, the memories that are yet to come, but I know they will just as I know every autumn the leaves will change colors and begin to fall.

So this playlist is yours now. For those long drives, or intimate dinners at home with friends and family, for the afternoons of quiet rain where the drops of water are absorbed by the velvet leaves floating in puddles or in your tweeds riding around in these last few days before the blankets of snow desaturate the fires of fall…

“Autumn comes on fiery wing

of flaming leaves,

and redbirds sing.

And twirling leaves fall to the ground

igniting magic all around.

So Winter waits, and Summer sleeps,

And Autumn, in the middle, keeps.” 

― Belle Whittington

I hope you enjoy our list and please, we would love recommendations of songs to add! As in life, this list should forever be evolving… here’s to autumn days.

Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~ George Eliot

There is a beauty in autumn entirely its own: the crispness of the air, the slow return of rosy cheeks, the crunch of leaves underfoot, the shimmer of change in the air. How do you go about capturing such a complex and stunning season?

When you are Chopard, you turn to your high jewelers. These amazingly talented craftsmen and women shaped an entire fall scene into an intricate, beautiful necklace – leaves shifting color, acorns growing nearly to the point of dropping, a gentle spider deftly building a web between two leaves. With colored diamonds set like cobblestones on the branch and tsavorite leaves glittering, the piece gives off a gentle shimmering glow, just like autumn mornings.

Here is an intimate look at the making of an autumn inspired piece for Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection from their artisan factory in Geneva to the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival.
