Hermès unveils Apple AirPods 2 Pro Case: The Epitome of French Luxury

For fashionphiles, Apple AirPods are more than just a technological accessory — they can double as an accent to an outfit, especially when carried in a designer case from the likes of Balenciaga, Chanel, Gucci, and now even Hermès.

In a stunning collaboration of technology and fashion, French Maison Hermès has just released its highly anticipated Apple AirPods 2 Pro Case. Priced at a breathtaking $930 USD, this luxurious accessory is set to captivate fashionphiles and tech enthusiasts alike.

Arriving in four colors — ‘Gold’, ‘Bleu Navy’, ‘Vert Criquet/Vert Bambou’, or ‘Bleu Lin/Étain’ — the case is designed to hold any generation of Apple AirPods Pro earphones, enveloping your tech device in ample amounts of traditional French luxury.

Crafted from the finest ‘Swift’ calfskin leather, Hermès showcases its commitment to traditional French luxury in every exquisite detail. It features an incredibly fine grain that results in a very smooth finish that absorbs dye unlike many other leathers, meaning your AirPods case will hold its color for years of use.

Whether you’re heading to a social gathering or a business meeting, carrying your AirPods in this Hermès case will elevate your style to new heights.

The handmade accessory is contrast stitched, attached to a long leather rope that can be worn around the neck, and features Hermès Paris’ stamp on the reverse of the piece.

Each Apple AirPods case retails for $930 USD and all four colorways can be bought online or in boutiques now. For more information, come into the beautiful world of Hermès.

French Maison Hermès launches luxe pastel Apple Watch bands


After announcing its second generation AirPods available to order today, Apple has also unveiled a new range of vibrant leather bands for the Apple Watch Hermès Series 4.

Apple Watch and French Maison Hermès introduces pastel colours adorn the face and leather bands of Apple Watch Hermès Series 4. A three-coloured face and leather bands from the Apple Watch Hermès Series 4 adopt two new combinations of colours for Spring 2019: the rose sakura joins the colours craie and argile, and the bleu lin joins the colours craie and bleu du Nord. The watch face is revisited to match with the colours of the band, and showcases the colour of time in a unique new gradient style: as the minute hand moves forward, the colour of the screen shifts along a gradient, allowing the wearer to tell the time at a glance. The new watch faces will be available with the new watchOS 5.2 coming next week as a free software update.

Available as ‘Rose Sakura/Craie/Argile’, ‘Bleu Lin/Craie/Bleu du Nord’, and in ‘Indigo/Craie/Orange’ (not shown) .

The new Apple Watch Hermès bands are available in single ($339) or double ($489) Tour bracelets for the 40mm and 44mm models, and you can purchase your favorite colorways on Apple’s website now. The bands are also available at select Hermès boutiques and Apple stores worldwide.

La Roche-Posay Releases My Skin Track UV Wearable Technology



Better looking skin starts with healthy habits, and that’s why La Roche-Posay continues its commitment to skin and sun-safety research and innovation.

Consider that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than all other cancers combined.

Back in 2016, the L’Oréal-owned brand introduced the first ever stretchable skin sensor to monitor UV exposure, My UV Patch. At the time, subsequent consumer studies showed a significant increase in sun-safe behaviors of those who used the patch (34% applying sunscreen more often, and 37% seeking shade more frequently).


Today, La Roche-Posay goes one step further and introduces My Skin Track UV, which is the first battery-free wearable electronic device to measure UV exposure! The innovative button-sized gadget is equipped with a super-precise sensor that measures individual UV levels. The connectable device is paired with a companion app (available only for iOS devices) that tracks the wearer’s exposure to known environmental hazards, such as pollution, pollen, and humidity, offering personalized tips and skincare recommendations regarding the health and safety of their skin! The app also calculates your max sun-stock, which is your own, personalized, maximum daily allowance of UV exposure, based on your skin tone and the UV index!

Created by L’Oreal’s leading skincare brand La Roche-Posay, the precise sensor measures individual UV levels, and the companion app also tracks exposure to pollution, pollen and humidity.

My Skin Track UV is designed to seamlessly integrate into daily lives and routines of its wearers, measuring both UVA and UVB exposure. The sensor is activated by the sun, and programmed to share information with the user’s smartphone via NFC. The app integrates with Apple HealthKit and provides instant status updates while storing up to three months of data.

The waterproof sensor is 12mm wide and 6mm high, and has a wire clip that can be used to attach it to clothing and accessories. The My Skin Track UV is available exclusively at select Apple Stores and apple.com, and retails for $59.95.
