Ear buddies

While you were sleeping

The future of boots
Chinese contemporary designer and founder of streetwear label Sankuanz Shangguan Zhe has teamed up with Timberland to unveil an outdoor collection with an American folklore theme. One highlight of the collaboration is the Drown 52 military boots which updates the classic six inch boot style by injecting colourful modifications like smooth white leather and contrasting blue accents throughout its design.

A familiar scent updated
Pasha de Cartier perfume is an updated version of a fragrance launched in 1992. The main ingredient in this new iteration is the sensual fougère accord (or fern in French) that is given a warmth and depth with the addition of amber. Woody elements such as the sandalwood are present too. Watch lovers will notice the lid has a blue cabochon, similar to that of the winding crown found on Pasha de Cartier timepieces.

Carry on
Pauline Moynat – who founded the Monyat label in 1849 – always had a soft spot for the arts and dance. This year, the label pays homage to its founder with its latest line appropriately called Danse (or dance in French). The newest offering is the brand’s first ‘soft’ bag and it stays in shape without any supporting frame to evoke the spirit of grace and the discipline of classical dance form.

Walking on sunshine

With so many to choose from, this pair of sandals in sunshine orange suede in goatskin with layered heels is our pick of the litter and will turn heads wherever you go.
