16 LUCY QUARTERMAINE LAUNCHES DYNAMIC NEW BRAND QUCY JEWELS Award-winning jewellery designer and entrepreneur Lucy Quartermaine has launched an exciting new brand, Qucy Jewels. Qucy, a sister brand to Lucy’s eponymous Lucy Quartermaine Jewellery, launches with a brand-new customer-facing website ( ), where clients will find a selection of Lucy’s back catalogue collections at good-value prices. Phase one of the launch showcases pieces from Lucy’s popular Jigsaw, Button, Arrow and Elements collections, among many other favourites that are no longer available elsewhere. Phase two, coming in the next few months, will see brand-new collections launching under the Qucy brand umbrella. Qucy collections will offer high-quality sterling silver pieces at entry- level price points to attract a younger audience. The collections will be aimed at fashion-conscious millennials who are looking for better-quality jewellery than they might find on the high street at competitive prices. Visit CAPRICE UNVEILS NEW SHOWROOM CONCEPT Shoe manufacturer Caprice, based in Pirmasens, Germany, has opened the doors of its newly designed showroom just in time for the launch of its SS19 collection. Created in cooperation with design agency Sommerburg & Winterschloss, the showroom is an innovative concept that has been developed to meet today’s requirements for a holistic presentation area. A light-flooded atmosphere was created, which showcases the high value of the leather used and the Scandinavian lifestyle movement Lagom, which, according to the company, “puts the essential points of life in the centre and thus ensures greater inner balance – served as an aesthetic reference.” Showcases decorated with traditional shoemaking tools refer to the roots of the third-generation company from Pirmasens. A separate bar area invites customers to stay a bit longer, even after the order appointment. The central element of the showroom is a four-meter-long solid oak table designed especially for Caprice. CEO Jürgen Cölsch said: “The relationship with our customers and our collection are in the centre here. The newly developed design and the high-quality materials, in combination with our products, form a perfect symbiosis. We will gradually transfer this aspect of our corporate design to all national and international showrooms.” Visit
