Rock’n Roll chic
Wear these rock-inspired pieces with attitude

SINGAPORE (Dec 4): Berluti designer Haider Ackermann has unleashed his inner rock star with his fall/winter 2017 collection. The wardrobe staples — especially the boots and bomber jackets — will give you a heavy metal vibe.

The boots have a low-cut design and a shape that makes slipping them on and off a breeze. They come in black glazed calf, Mogano and scarlet Venezia leather, as well as an exclusive lizard version. Match the boots with a bomber jacket and you can look like Jon Bon Jovi. Pick from three different styles of jackets:

  • Glossy lambskin style featuring a removable shearling collar with alligator detailing in rich crimson
  • Calfskin nubuck style in military khaki with lambskin trim, fixed shearling collar, quilted off-white silk lining and wool ribbing
  •  An anthracite 100% cashmere style with a fixed shearling collar and an alligator undercollar in deep emerald, a signature colour in the fall collection

Fine writing Style
The NEO Slim, a new addition to Faber-Castell’s series of fine writing instruments, impresses with its distinctive slim design. The collection features nine series with different finishings and colours and comprises a ball pen, ink roller and fountain pen. The fountain pen uses gel ink for a brighter, bolder finish while the ink roller uses a ceramic refill. The slim ball pen comes with its first ever “stylus” function while careful consideration has been given to the selection of premium materials — stainless steel in both shiny and matte versions and stylish rose-gold finishing for the Black, Ivory and Oriental Red varieties.

Sweet anniversary
The iconic Cintrée Curvex by Franck Muller celebrates its 25th anniversary with a timepiece that is a definite keepsake. A tonneau-shaped case protects the dial that bears the 25th anniversary logo. The watch is available in regular numerals as well as numerals of Color Dreams.

Island attraction
Louis Vuitton men’s designer Kim Jones tapped into the Polynesian countries of New Zealand, Easter Island and Hawaii for inspiration for his spring/summer 2018 collection. Jones wants men to feel comfortable in outfits that are both elegant yet rugged, or as he describes it “the luxurious pursuit of island-hopping”.

Love and romance
Eternity by Calvin Klein is a fragrance that represents romance, love, intimacy and commitment. Who better to embody these qualities than Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal and model and maternal health advocate Liya Kebede and four-year-old actress Leila. The images shot by acclaimed photographer Willy Vanderperre will be featured on all advertising collaterals later this year.

Fathers and sons
Planning a family getaway to a resort island? Then, get your son the same pair of swim shorts as yours. The Vilebrequin
Sweeter Turtles, an exclusive father-son holiday edition, has turtles printed all over it. The shorts are priced at $360 for adults and $180 for boys, aged two to eight.
