SINGAPORE (May 15): Hello, world

You might want to consider a wardrobe change as you ease back into going back to the office and socialising at a distance. We suggest you consider Kate Spade’s summer 2020 collection, which includes some stylish launches such as the Ready-To-Wear selection that offers a clean silhouette with modern takes on the colour-blocking trend. The handbags and small leather goods go bold with prints such as gingham and florals while the jewellery has been described as a colourful fruit salad of lemons, cherries and strawberries. With these wardrobe additions, you are ready to face the world again.

Best of the best

The food and beverage industry is perhaps the hardest hit by the Covid-19 outbreak — so much that many restaurants are forced to change the way they operate to survive. To that end, the people behind The World’s 50 Best Restaurants is launching a 50 Best for Recovery programme aimed at providing financial relief, give reliable and updated information and create a focal point where the community can share its experiences and look to the future. 50 Best for Recovery is a joint effort with Italian bottled water brands S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. Details can be found on Instagram @TheWorlds50Best and on the Facebook page 50BestRestaurants.

Music to soothe the soul

Staying home has its perks, especially if you are a music lover. But before you run out and buy the first sound system you see — you might want to download the B&O AR app, which allows you to use augmented reality to digitally place any Bang & Olufsen products in your living space. Visualise before you buy, in other words.
