Rimowa pays tribute to Raffles Hotel Singapore with a travel accessories collection


SINGAPORE (Oct 28): Rimowa has been producing quality luggage for the discerning traveller since 1898. The brand has opened a boutique at the Raffles Hotel Singapore — another iconic brand that started operating in 1887. To celebrate the reopening of the grand old dame, Rimowa has launched a unique collection of travel accessories. It includes a green leather luggage tag that reflects the hotel’s lush greenery. You can request for a variety of designs to be stamped on it, such as your initials; the Singapore Sling — a drink that was created at the hotel; the hotel’s logo, which is the palm frond; and its Long Bar. There is also a Rimowa x Raffles Singapore sticker set to customise your Rimowa luggage. Guests staying at the hotel will get complimentary luggage repair and cleaning services. Check out the new boutique at 01-19 Raffles Hotel Arcade.


Traditional knits are the stars of Brunello Cucinelli’s fall/winter 2019 men’s collection. The round or V-neck sweaters have a classic jersey look with a fisherman’s rib knit pattern. They are made of lightweight Mouliné yarns that add colour to an otherwise sombre collection. 


Tissot has launched the automatic chronograph movement, the T-race MotoGP Automatic, which features an eye-catching design. The limited-edition watch is covered in a black ring that is made of carbon fibre — considered to be one of the toughest materials around. The dial features counters and bigger indexes in rose-gold, while a complementary case in PVD rose gold matches the black-coated PVD bezel. Through the transparent caseback that resembles the wheels of a racing car, you can view the inner technical workings of the watch. The strap is rubber-coated with imitation crocodile leather.


Asics has got you covered if you are planning a trekking trip in colder climates. The All Winter Long collection includes the Winter Accelerate Jacket and Windblock Tights that will keep you warm and dry in extremely chilly weather conditions.

Launched in platinum in 2015, Ref 5905 unites two Patek Philippe complications beloved of connoisseurs: a self-winding flyback chronograph and a patented annual calendar. A new version of this model has been released in a rose-gold case with a brown sunburst dial that shades gently to black at the periphery. The dial’s design co mbines the technical look of an instrument for measuring short times with the elegance of a Patek Philippe. Features include three-face Dauphine hour and minute hands with a luminescent coating, rose-gold applied hour markers and luminous dots marking the five-minute points. Within this timepiece beats the Calibre CH 28-520 QA 24H self-winding movement comprising 402 parts. The new Ref 5905R-001 takes its place alongside the existing models in platinum with a blue or black dial.
