Model Alexandra Marks imbued the December–January issue cover shoot with a sunny, resort-style vibe. We adorned the Trinidad-born beauty in heaps of gold jewelry—from statement earrings to collar necklaces and stacking bangles—to highlight the yellow metal theme. And given the issue’s 2016-in-preview focus, she also donned a super-stylish addition to the wearable category: a prototype edition of the gold-plated WiseWear bracelet. Because if there’s one thing you need to know about the new year, it’s this: Technology and fashion must go hand-in-hand.
