Of the many pieces in the collection of watches and jewelry It couple Sofia Sanchez and Alexandre de Betak co-curated for Paddle8—which range from artist-designed collections by the likes of Braque and Calder to watches by Rolex and Girard Perregaux—my favorite is this playful Salvador Dali lips brooch. It speaks volumes to the newly wed duo’s whimsical aesthetic.
