Animal kingdom
SINGAPORE (Jan 31): The clips in the Lucky Animals collection by Van Cleef & Arpels were created in 1954 to give people access to day jewellery. Since then, the collection has grown and along the way, the designs have changed too. In 2017, more animals with their own distinct style and personality were added to the collection. As expected, this year sees an expansion with new animals such as the panda, horse, duck and pig.

New addition
Mulberry gives us a new streamlined addition to the Bayswater family of bags. The Belted Bayswater Satchel has a Postman lock and belt. The name Postman is a nod to the satchel that the postman carries with adjustable shoulder straps. Bags are available in deep amber, lipstick red, pale slate, dark palm and elephant.

Good foundation
The glow that you always dreamed about might now be within reach with the Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Liquid Makeup SPF 20/PA+++ by Estée Lauder. Each bottle of this foundation contains two Peridot stones that are said to contain properties that will give one radiant skin. The research team at Estée Lauder has found a way to extract the right amount to help boost the skin’s vibrancy and radiance.

Sneaker attack
Get your sneaker fix with the Onitsuka Tiger and Valentino limited edition shoes that are part of the autumn/winter 2020 Paris Menswear Collection. The shoe is a reinterpretation of the Mexico 66 SD design featuring the Valentino V Logo over the Onitsuka Tiger Stripe. A special co-branded logo can be found on the shoe-tongue as well as on the insole. This model has a midsole with cushioning and a proprietary outer sole that is durable and slip resistant.

Save the koalas
Here is a public service announcement: Balenciaga has released T-shirts and hoodies that feature an image of the vulnerable Australian Koala. This is in support of the fight against Australia’s bushfire disaster. All proceeds from the sales of these pieces will be donated to the most appropriate local conservation organisation selected by the Kering Group and Balenciaga sustainability experts. The T-shirts and hoodies are sold exclusively on Balenciaga.com.

Stay neutral
It is never too early to plan your wardrobe and Ermenegildo Zegna XXX Winter 2020 collection has some stylish suggestions. Every model sent down the fashion runway features creations with boxy, three-button or one-breast-and-a-half jackets that are paired with tapered trousers. Fans of the tailored waistcoat will be happy to know that the style is back. Other design elements include the flap and patch pockets. Colour palette includes neutrals, sand stone, cloudy sky, brown quartz and dark loden – in other words, all shades of Mother Nature.
