Ca­sual Ro­mance

Prestige Hong Kong - - AGENDA EDITOR’S PICKS -

I’m not one for pomp and cir­cum­stance, and my daily sar­to­rial choices are ques­tion­able at best, dull as dish­wa­ter at worst. But if I had ge­nealog­i­cal links to the royal fam­ily of Jaipur and in­her­i­tance guar­an­teed, I’d shop for these good­ies and feel giddy

MINE IS NOT A BODY THAT’S PRONE TO EX­ER­CISE, NOR DOES IT EVER HIT THE WAVES. AND YET I’VE GOT MY EYES ON THIS HER­MÈS RESIN SURF­BOARD WITH A HAND-PAINTED JUN­GLE MO­TIF. IN FACT, EV­ERY ITEM AT THE HER­MÈS STORE IN LAND­MARK PRINCE’S BUILD­ING CAN BE OGLED OVER. FRENCH PER­FEC­TION

DIS­TRESSED DEN­IMS WITH THE THIGH-STRIPE MO­TIF HIGH­LIGHT THE GOOD AND COVER UP THE BAD. FOUND ONLY AT BAL­MAIN

AT A CELEBRITY COVER SHOOT, THIS BURBERRY SWEATER WAS PART OF THE WARDROBE SE­LECTED BY OUR STYLIST. ON PASS­ING IT TO OUR STAR WE GUSHED OVER THE FAB­RIC, THE CUT, THE STITCH­ING, THE CA­SUAL EL­E­GANCE...

THE LOEWE MES­SEN­GER BAG IS PER­FECT FOR AN ON-THE-GO JOUR­NAL­IST LIKE ME. SUIT­CASES ARE FOR BE­FUD­DLED BANKERS AND PRE­VAR­I­CAT­ING LAWYERS; THIS SLING BAG IS FOR SCRIB­BLERS

NAMED AF­TER ITS AM­BI­TION TO BE A WEAR­ABLE COM­PAN­ION THAT KEEPS ITS OWNER AHEAD IN ALL AS­PECTS OF LIFE, MONT­BLANC’S SUM­MIT 2 IS THE FIRST LUX­URY SMART­WATCH THAT’S MADE MY HEAD TURN. IT JUST MIGHT KEEP ME AND MY LIFE ON TRACK

THIS CHRIS­TIAN DIOR SNEAKER RE­MINDS ME OF MY COL­LEGE DAYS – OR IS THAT DAZE? I LIVED IN SNEAK­ERS (STILL DO) AND KNEW NOT WHAT LIFE HAD IN STORE FOR ME (STILL DON’T), BUT THIS VIVID RE­MINDER OF MY PAST KEEPS ME SMIL­ING IN THE PRESENT

LE GEEK EST CHIC. AGE­ING AND IN DE­NIAL, I WANT THESE FRAMES IN AUBURN BROWN FROM TOM FORD. THEY COVER THE FINE LINES AROUND MY VERY TIRED EYES AND I CAN FEIGN IN­TEL­LI­GENCE

THIS CLAS­SIC BLACK-AND-WHITE SNEAKER WITH ZIP­PER EM­BEL­LISH­MENT FROM GIUSEPPE ZAN­OTTI IS AS COM­FORT­ABLE AS IT’S GOR­GEOUS

SO­CI­ETY EDITOR P.RA­MAKR­ISH­NAN LETS US IN ON WHAT HE’D CARD IN A NEW YORK – WELL, NEW DELHI – MINUTE

WITH AS MANY EVENTS AS I HAVE TO AT­TEND, THE NAMECARD CUL­TURE MEANS I’M CON­STANTLY WHIP­PING OUT MY WAL­LET. NOW I HAVE MY EYES ON THIS BLUE BILL­FOLD FROM VALEX­TRA
