Happy an­niver­sary To Us

Prestige (Singapore) - - UNDERCOVER -

Imag­ine be­ing on set 60 times to pho­to­graph 60 peo­ple when all you have to work with are the same 24 hours in a seven-day week and a one-month print cy­cle. De­spite the dead­line-re­lated anx­i­ety, this is­sue was ab­so­lutely grat­i­fy­ing and mean­ing­ful. Made all the more so be­cause we man­aged to catch up with 60 friends and also bring to life the sto­ries of a fur­ther 40 (whose pho­to­graphs were thank­fully pre-shot). All their sto­ries are woven through­out the mag­a­zine. As an an­niver­sary is­sue, this is as much a big-bang cel­e­bra­tion as it is a state­ment our DNA; one that sets the tone for the next 11 months to come. Per­haps we will also draw as­so­cia­tive strength from the enig­matic Tutti Frutti neck­lace from Cartier that graces our cover. Its de­sign has stood the test of time since the early 20th cen­tury, yet re­mains im­pos­si­bly fresh — an ed­i­fy­ing takeaway on our sweet 16.
