Spring luxury
Design excellence is paired with outstanding functionality in TUMI’s Spring 2018 Women’s collection. Inspired by the dynamic lifestyles of women on the go as well as the laid-back culture and breathtaking landscapes of California, the business-focused Stanton range features an assortment of streamlined bags in pebbled leather and accented with polished hardware. This season’s colour palette is Black and Earl Grey with seasonal pops of colour, Hot Red and Navy. The fully functional bags, which include a backpack, tote brief and a small crossbody, keep the modern businesswoman organised both in and outside the office.


Stylish return
The Hermès Carré H — a square timepiece with a modern aesthetic — was created by Marc Berthier and first introduced in 2010. Returning with a new style this year, Berthier has enlarged the square by a few millimetres and opted for light effects playing across the steel case with its polished and microbead-blasted finishes, on the dial with its right-angled guilloché work and on the faceted hands and numerals. The exclusive font of the numerals — using the zero — contributes to the watch’s new aesthetic.

Click and buy
While some of us like to browse at the Bang & Olufsen store at Grand Hyatt, the individual with little time to spare would prefer to click on Beostore.com to make a purchase. The easy-to-navigate website has a wide range of audio visual products. They range from on-the-go speakers and headphones and flexible products that combine portability and supreme audio quality with distinct interior sensibility, to the staged collection comprising powerful loudspeakers and television sets, equipped with the best audio capabilities.
