Go big

The new normal dictates that we will have to carry more than the usual wallet and an i-Pad in our bags. We now have to pack a hand sanitiser, an extra mask and even hand soap. French ready-to-wear and leather luxury brand Celine has answered our call for a larger day bag and has launched the Large Soft 16 that is super spacious and made of oh-sosoft calfskin. With a dimension of 38 x 26 x 18 cms in shades of tan and light burgundy, you can be sure that you will be able to hold all your essential items in great style for a day out.

Sustainability on show

H&M is committed to saving the Earth and has launched sustainable fashion that uses recycled and sustainably sourced materials. To do this, the H&M’s Singapore flagship store at Orchard Building will curate an in-store exhibition that features sustainably sourced materials used in H&M garments and the brand’s environmentallyresponsible production methods. The exhibition details the brand’s long-term sustainability goals to only use recycled and sustainably sourced materials by 2030 and provide quality and great fashion at the best price in a sustainable way.

Messages of encouragement

Chloé goes ultra feminine with a hint of fun for this season’s accessories collection that is created to be worn in a myriad of combinations — it is up to your imagination. Case in point is the Franckie line of bold enamel pins, pendant necklaces, cuffs, earrings, rings in gold or brass and colourful lacquer. Each item comes with affirming messages such as Clap for her, Girls Forward and Vivre Sa Vie Alone. 

At your service

Even with “circuit breaker” measures eased, a lot of people are still very cautious when they are out shopping at a mall. Tiffany & Co. understands that and has launched a personal shopping service with complimentary home delivery for purchases. A dedicated Client Care Centre is available to connect with customers via telephone or live chat on the Tiffany website. Here’s what you need to do: • Browse jewellery on www.international.tiffany.com • Obtain style advice from a dedicated Client Care Advisor, as well as confirm product availability and price • Make cashless payments via email or internet banking • Have items delivered right to the doorstep.

Petal power

Expert crafting techniques go into the making of the 03 Rose Edition handbag by Valentino that is completely covered in leather petals to give a mesmerizing three-dimensional rose. Five different sizes of petals are used to give dimension and movement to the embroidery. Each petal made from smooth goat skin is moulded by hand and then assembled individually. The small shoulder bag is embroidered with a total of 90 leather petals on a shiny nappa leather base and takes approximately 10.5 hours to construct by hand.

Peel it off

The Body Shop puts the fun in your skincare routine with the AntiImperfection Peel-Off Mask. Simply mix it up, get messy and apply for a peel-off mask that is super satisfying and pain-free. The mask promises clearer-looking skin that feels decongested. The best part is that the mask uses Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya.

Caring for neglected areas

When we do our daily skincare regime, the neck is often neglected. Remedy this with the ExtraFirming Neck & Décolleté by Clarins. Each tube contains sunflower extract, which is known to firm, smooth, and tone the skin from the chin down to your chest. The lightweight, ultracomfortable cream absorbs quickly into the skin for an instant smoother looking skin. The nonoily texture sinks right in, allowing one to get dressed immediately after without any waiting time. Clarins’ Extra-Firming Neck and Décolleté retails at $145 for a 75ml tube, and is available at all Clarins boutiques, counters and Clarins.com.sg.
