Pearls of wisdom

If you think there’s only one way to wear pearls, allow Carrie K. to change your mind. Over at the newly-opened Carrie K. Atelier at Funan is the Pearl Bar, where strings of pearls are taken from the traditiona­l and predictabl­e to customisab­le and contempora­ry. The brainchild of founder and owner, Carolyn Kay, the pearl bar carries modular clasps, chains, accessory pieces and a wide variety of pearl types to create an infinite number of styles for every pearl wearer. Carolyn was inspired by her own heirloom pearls passed down to her from her mother, when she realised strings of pearls were always worn the same way and that the style hadn’t been updated in eons. With Pearl Bar, strings of pearls become heirloom pieces that can be passed down for generation­s to come. carriekroc­

Painting the town red

The iconic 360LP WALK sneakers by Loro Piana take on a red spin for its limitededi­tion collection specially designed for China, Hong Kong and Macau. Only available in these three locations, the sneakers have an added touch of red – a colour associated with prosperity in Chinese culture – that highlights the sleek style of the sneakers. Handcrafte­d in Italy, the lightweigh­t 360LP WALK weighs just 360g, which pairs a supple technical sole with an upper knitted in Merino wool, a fibre with properties similar to that of cashmere. This gives the sneakers stretch and flexibilit­y, while allowing for natural breathabil­ity when worn.

Dashing and debonair

The summer heat and almost insufferab­le humidity this near the equator will make most men want to throw out their stuffy blazers, but the SACCO man keeps things distinguis­hed with SACCO’s Colori Di Napoli collection of tropical blazers. Made to wear in the sweltering heat, these blazers achieve class without sacrificin­g comfort with its completely unlined single layer of fabric. Although thin, the tropical blazer remains smartly pressed thanks to its hopsack cloth from Italy’s oldest mill, Vitale Barberis Canonico, which creates a breathable, wrinkle-resistant garment. This makes it ideal for heavy travel use and can be worn in a variety of climates. This collection of blazers comes in 12 vibrant colours to suit all occasions.

When hype meets beast

Fall and winter just got chic with the launch of the Porsche x BOSS FW 2019 Capsule Collection. The capsule launch was done in a showcase at Paragon Shopping Centre in Singapore to celebrate the opening of Hugo Boss’ first Shoes & Accessorie­s store in Singapore, and the unveiling of the new Porsche 911 to the public. Hugo Boss is the official clothing partner of the Porsche Motorsport team worldwide – both on the race track and in the workshop. In this capsule collection, expect garments like a leather jacket, polo, and casual jacket with design elements inspired by the sleek curves of a Porsche sports car, and in striking shades of silver, black and red.

Making waves

Celebrated multimedia artist, Alex Israel, has collaborat­ed with Louis Vuitton for a brand-new textile collection featuring the Los Angeles native’s trademark pop aesthetics in saturated colours. The eight-piece collection has scarves, shawls, blankets and a bandeau made in silk, wool and cashmere blends. The highlights of the collection are the Wave scarves, which have been produced using an innovative quilting technique. One side is padded to recreate Israel’s signature puffy texture found in his paintings, while the reverse is covered in Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram pattern. The square scarves are available in three sizes, with the largest doubling up as a cosy blanket. louisvuitt­
