SINGAPORE (Mar 20): D&G ♥ Australia

Before the Covid-19 virus hit Australia, the country was battling bush fires. In light of that, Dolce & Gabbana has launched the #DGLovesAustralia project, with the aim of supporting the country, particularly the volunteer firefighters and those affected by the tragedy. This is done through specially designed T-shirts that feature the Waratah, the flower of Australia that is synonymous with strength, energy and healing. Proceeds from the sales will go to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

True blue

The brown shades of the MCM bag collections have given way to the colour blue. The new Surf the Web Blue collection reclaims a feeling of heritage as it honors the similar colours on the Bavarian flag; while the Blue Bell collection exudes a modern and vibrant spirit. 

Stay hydrated

Without hydration, skin loses its radiance and plumpness. To make sure your skin gets its thirst quenched, try the Matte Dew Hydration • Sorbet Droplet Emulsion from Dior’s Hydra Life range. This works well on combination skin as ingredients like hyaluronic acid help retain moisture while an extract of roucou seeds (from a tree that is native to South America) reduces pores and purifies the skin. 

Happy anniversary

For the last 125 years, Swarovski has been adding sparkle to our lives with their crystal-cut pieces. To mark this special occasion, the brand has launched a collection that pays tribute to its heritage, mastery and innovation. Each piece in the collection celebrates the unique DNA of Swarovski by honouring its iconic blue shade. 

Starbucks and a star

Known as the wedding dress designer to the stars, Vera Wang has teamed up with Starbucks to create a series of lifestyle products every woman needs. Check out the sleek and stunning stainless-steel tumbler, an edgy printed tote bag, and a makeup carrier, to name a few.

An update on the old

Furla fans will notice that the brand has updated its arch logo to a sleek metallic ornament, which is now used on the Furla 1927 collection of bags. For spring/summer 2020, Furla 1927 comes in various shapes such as pochette, crossbody and saddle in soft pastel shades. Some variations are pink and black-white magnolia flower prints, and striped optic in colour block combinations. 

Put a ring on it

Chaumet is here to help you propose to your loved one with a Trésors d’Ailleurs ring inspired by the rich cultures of countries like China and Japan as well as the Middle East. The design features a blue starspeckled Eastern sky with a lapis lazuli dome. From its faceted cupola to the stars depicted by the setting of its precious stones, this creation is a celebration of architecture in every detail.
