Games we play
Is it a coffee table or a foosball table? The Intervallo — an Italian word meaning “a short rest between two halves of a game (e.g. football)”— is both. Play a game of foosball with your loved ones at home; if not, the Intervallo will surely make an interesting conversation piece during dinner parties. The table is equipped with a case made of curved crystal glass that is 12mm in thickness. Table legs and handles are made of wood and there are adjustable feet to level the table. The dimensions are 97cm x 64cm x 67cm (h). Available at Royal Interiors 315 Outram Road, #06-07/08/09, Tan Boon Liat Building.
Reach for the stars

Besides pendants, rings and earrings, the Star Lab range introduces a new variety of cuts for diamond rings and bracelets.
Founded during the reign of Louis XV, the House of Fauré Le Page started out as a gunsmith to royalty. Over the decades, Fauré Le Page evolved to producing some of the finest items in bags and small leather goods with “a hint of weapon” designs. The latest to hit our shores is Fauré Le Page’s Camouflage collection that comes in a damask pattern which hearkens back to both its most prestigious weaponry heritage, and the decorative stones that are characteristic of the Louvre.

Message of hope
Expert in winterwear Moncler launches a campaign that sends a powerful message of togetherness in a time of isolation and uncertainty. Photographed by New York-based Australian photographer and director Chris Colls, and exhibited in capital cities across the world this winter, the campaign captures the candid warmth of family portraiture that celebrates optimism. The campaign features American actresses Robin Wright and daughter Dylan Penn, Japanese race car aficionado and alpine residents Mai Ikuzawa and her sons Arto and Milo, French “flextro” dancer Bats aka Mamadou Bathily, and models Mao Xiaoxing and Mika Schneider.
H&M launches a 10-piece collection made with sustainable materials. You have a choice of baggy jeans, loose straight-leg jeans, a trucker jacket and an oversized overshirt, along with a bucket hat — inspired by the laidback coolness of the 1990s. The eco-friendly shopper can rest assured that the collection is made out of 100% recycled fabrics — pre-consumer recycled cotton from industrial waste cuttings and post-consumer recycled cotton from collected garments. Even the washing technique adopted has a low environmental impact and is free from harmful chemicals.
