Ecco Tannery Series is an eco-friendly shopping bag collection that uses upcycled leather from its tannery’s innovation labs in the Netherlands. The collection features a range of experimental structures along with vivid and newly developed colours and high-quality classic finishes. This launch shows Ecco’s commitment to avant-garde leather innovation as well as more sustainable production. Priced at $169 each, the Ecco Tannery Series of shopper bags is available exclusively at the two Ecco Prime concept stores in Singapore, located at The Shoppes At Marina Bay Sands and ION Orchard.
The holidays are coming
It’s never too early to get into the festive spirit. Kate Spade teases us with a preview of what’s to come. Jewellery, ready-to-wear, shoes, bags, small leather goods and even tech get a chance to be in the limelight. Featured here is the airpod case that comes with a sprinkling of glitter on it. In fact, most of the collection has some form of shine to it. Watch this space for more highlights from the collection.
With the pandemic still showing no signs of stopping, the Only group has launched Brilliance Shield that prevents us from touching our faces and spreading germs. There are a variety of designs to choose from and we are featuring one from the Urbane Series that has an anti-droplet shield and is ergonomically designed to prevent us from touching our faces. It is environmentally friendly and reusable; simply wash it with soap and water. It also offers UV400 and blueray protection.
Turning 30 years old this year, the Possession ring is from one of Piaget’s most recognisable collections. The yellow gold ring has a central turning band that could be twirled on the finger, creating a special interaction between the ring and its owner. Possession’s message is clear: it inspires its owners to take possession of their lives and make their dreams come true.
Out of Africa
In commemoration of Heritage Day, which South Africans celebrated last week, we are casting a spotlight on the wide range of African design and heritage through the furnishings and décor used at luxury lodges such as andBeyond. Local artisans are hired to make one-of-a-kind pieces, and the design philosophy is simple, sustainable and responsible. When borders open, book yourself a stay at this lodge and enjoy the designs up close. You can also pick up some intricate basketwork and colourful crafts to show your support. Can’t wait for borders to open? Shop online at https://www.andbeyond.com/ bringing-africa-home/safari-shop/.
What your skin needs
With the pandemic comes a new skin condition: maskne — when the mask you use every day causes your skin to break out in acne. Skin and beauty companies have already put out a few solutions that will help us combat mask-induced breakouts. Take a look at what some of these companies are offering at ION Orchard where service staff will be more than happy to advise you on which products to use. Some brands to consider are Kiehls, Laniege, Skin Inc, L’Occitane and Sulwhasoo.
Secrets of a rose
The Rose de Granville is no ordinary rose; it is specially cultivated by Dior Garden and harvested to create the Micro-Huile de Rose — a formulation that provides skin with the much-needed micro nutrients that depletes as we age. This award-winning formula unleashes regenerative nutrients from the sap of the rose to repair and boost skin’s energy levels.
