THE LUXE OF LOVE
We in the RED team agree that luxe means expensive and of high quality. But I’ve also realized that luxe can mean different things to different people.
Yesterday, I wore a terno, made by Ivar Aseron, for the first time, and I hadn’t thought I would enjoy wearing one as much as I did. It felt luxe. I had told Ivar I didn’t want any beading, and knowing it would be my first and last terno, it better fit me whether I gain or lose weight. If I might say so myself, he designed the best terno. It was comfortable, well-designed, and created with impeccable workmanship. Yes, those to me define luxe.
Ultimately, I believe luxe is something you can experience. Aside from well-designed items, I also enjoy eating good food and just hanging out in a beautiful place with good company.
In this issue, we try to cover as many kinds of luxuries as possible. In fact, because Christmas is just around the corner, we’re featuring some gift items that anyone would love. And because time is luxury, we’ve made it easier to find them, as they’re available only in Rustan’s. We also have a travel story that shows the luxury of gaining different perspectives within the same country, as told through the lens of Gab de Leon. Then, chefs Chele Gonzales and JP Anglo share their favorite things and most memorable meals—other forms of luxuries, regardless of whether they’re simple or extravagant.
Our choices affect the quality of our lives immensely, so choose well to live well! We hope to help you make the right choices.
