Be­gin­ning its jour­ney in KL, TAG Heuer launches a trav­el­ling ex­hi­bi­tion ‘La Mai­son’. On dis­play will be the Heuer fam­ily’s pri­vate trea­sures as well as live move­ment as­sem­bly demon­stra­tions. “Each piece is a pre­cious mem­ber of my fam­ily,” says Jack Heuer. “From the old­est stop­watch to the new­est chrono­graph, they show who we are and what we’re made of. I’m de­lighted that the whole world will fi­nally have the op­por­tu­nity to see and share this with us, to know us by our proud­est achieve­ments, most breath­tak­ing cre­ations, and most in­tense mo­ments.” ‘ La Mai­son’ will be at Pavil­ion KL from Fe­bru­ary 19 for a week.

4 HOT TROT

Men’s-in­spired slip­pers con­tinue to be the rage this sea­son, rein­ter­preted in new tex­tures and colours. The Sab­rina loafer from Cole Haan comes in rich vel­vet and hair­calf with gros­grain trim for an el­e­gant and more tra­di­tional take on the shoe, while Stuart Weitz­man of­fers an edgier ver­sion with gold studs and zip­per de­tail­ing on the heel. Or go for a leop­ard-print pony­hair ver­sion from French Sole, guar­an­teed to be a wardrobe sta­ple.
