Nothing quite makes a style statement like Ed Hardy! The designer label from the United States was founded in 2004 by French designer Christian Audigier, who previously worked for Von Dutch. Ed Hardy is a huge hit among the folks in LA and is based on the designs of tattoo guru Don Ed Hardy. Audigier managed to obtain the rights to use the designs of Ed Hardy and incorporate them into the products alongside his own unique and creative style. The range which comprises of clothing – mainly t-shirts and accessories including the collection of Ed Hardy watches; combines vintage tattoo art, urban styling and dramatic aesthetics and ultimately the lifestyle brand includes seriously bling and eye-catching pieces.
With the creative eye of Christian Audigier and A-list fans including Madonna, Kanye West, Britney Spears and Heidi Klum, the brand has very quickly taken the world by storm. Earlier this month, the UK was very pleased to celebrate the launch of the very first Ed Hardy store located in the Westfield Shopping Centre, Shepherds Bush.
Although Ed Hardy is a brand that is most renowned for its collection of t-shirts and tanks, the range of Ed Hardy watches have become an incredibly popular choice of accessory during 2009 and are all sure statement pieces with their incredibly detailed designs, vibrant colours and bling appeal!
The watch collection features designs created specifically for men and women and despite the initial thought of urban appeal and vintage tattoo art perhaps portraying quite a masculine orientated style, the watches for ladies are incredibly feminine with artwork including flowers, butterflies, mystical characters and fairies to name only a few. With beautiful colours such as pink, gold, cream, and white incorporated into many of the watches, these look incredibly striking on the wrist and combine just the right level of femininity with a funky edge to make the watches that little bit different. The ladies watches also tend to use colour and style contrasts such as a feminine designed dial with a chunky grey strap which creates a trendy dynamic. Some of the watches for men and women feature the very much on trend cuff style straps, some with added stud detailing whereas others have simple leather or stainless steel straps. A selection of the straps also incorporate the inclusion of tattoo art in addition to the dial and some also feature the use of diamante stones for that extra hint of bling!
What is amazing about Ed Hardy watches is the fine attention to detail within the artwork. With an incredible use of vibrant colours that are subtly placed together to create an image that is absolutely stunning, you can’t help but be impressed by the fine craftsmanship and the intense level of skill that is invested into the tattoo picture which also include lions, eagles, skulls and leopards.
Ed Hardy is a huge hit in America and is very much a core brand seen out and about in LA. With the opening of the new store in London, in 2010 it definitely looks as though we will be seeing a great deal more of this striking brand on the fashion forward streets of the UK!

The famous designer label Diesel was founded over 20 years ago by Italian designer Renzo Rosso and has grown rapidly to become an international fashion phenomenon based on innovative, exciting and highly stylish designs. The Diesel brand which creates casual clothing – most famously jeans, shoes and accessories including sunglasses and watches, has a huge number of stores all over the world.
When Rosso founded Diesel, he wanted the brand to be different and was prepared to take a risk as opposed to following existing fashion and jumping on the trend bandwagon. Rosso wanted to challenge current designs in the industry and provide an alternative to people who appreciated a unique style. Rosso believed that the brand would only evolve in the way he desired if he was inspired by a team of like-minded people and therefore he selected a team who worked hard to create a more dynamic, innovative, exciting and imaginative line of clothing. Rosso was considered a dream to work for as he gave his designers a free reign on their ideas, allowing them to be as open minded as they wish; the only creative brief being to design a collection that was geared towards people who like to reflect their individuality and independence through the way that they dress and wear what suits them as opposed to merely following trends.
Diesel became a fast success and people love the fact that the brand is a fashion leader. You will notice that the style has remained fairly continuous over the years proving that the brand is timeless – if you bought a pair of Diesel jeans five years ago, they will still look fantastic today and the same applies to Diesel accessories such as the collection of watches and sunglasses. Diesel is also renowned for its incredibly high quality products and cutting edge production methods. From the design development of the styles, the choice of fabrics and materials used, to the manufacturing methods and quality control, you can be assured that a Diesel product will be of the best quality possible.
The Diesel ‘trend’ is one that is regarded as applicable to everyone all around the world which is why the company also strongly believes in employing designers, marketers and retail assistants among many other roles, from all across the globe which encourages an unpredictable and varied take on fashion and creates an extremely inspirational environment to work in. This is definitely why the brand has become so dynamic and successful and it is often featured as a case study and used as an example of how other companies could be structured in order to be successful.
Diesel has an effortless yet polished style and when you wear a piece of Diesel clothing or don a pair of Diesel sunglasses, you instantly feel like you are expressing your own style without trying too hard. The collection of Diesel watches and Diesel sunglasses are a great way of injecting the Diesel spirit to your look. With cutting edge designs that will still look stylish in years to come and with cool features such as dual digital and analogue displays within the Diesel watch collection for example, Diesel is constantly creating fresh and innovative looks that are striking but that will work well with your existing wardrobe and enhance it as opposed to contradicting it for the sake of being different. Celebrity fans of Diesel include Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears and this is a brand that is definitely here to stay – perfect for those that work their own unique style!

Diesel watches are the absolute essence of understated cool. Symbolising a sign of a modern, cosmopolitan lifestyle, with your wrist adorned with one of the brand’s funky yet sophisticated timepieces you will portray fashion status, personality and casual elegance.
The Diesel watch collection is fantastic and there are designs and styles to suit every occasion. New for 2009 comes the exclusive DZ5147 watch which is feminine at its best but yet still edgy enough to look cool. In bold purple with a scrunched leather strap and purple dial, the rose cold plated detail compliments the main purple and this is certainly a watch designed to be noticed. Diesel is renowned for its team of innovative designers and the men’s gold plated stainless steel DZ7112 watch is the perfect example of how Diesel is one of the most cutting edge brands out there. With a slick multi-strand bracelet and a multi functional LED dial, this timepiece has a futuristic vibe and is great for cool evening wear. Extremely funky and unique is the Diesel DZ5162 for women. I would imagine that this design has never been seen before with a triple coloured bracelet style band and the small offset dial. This is a great fashion piece and sure to be the source of many conversations and compliments!
Of course, Diesel is famous for being edgy and urban and has quite the celebrity following including Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears, who have both being pictured wearing Diesel watches. The brand is so popular because the cutting edge designs are high fashion in style and quality yet the high street price tag means that everyone can look great in amazing designs for an affordable or at least reasonable amount. Opt for a Diesel watch and it will be an accessory which lasts and looks great for years to come.
