RIMOWA continues the seasonal release of curated suitcases for its Essential line with two new colours – Berry that evokes the deep purple hills running over the Hvalfjordur fjord and Glacier, a crisp blue that recalls icy Icelandic hues. Inspired by these exotic places, the colours are applied to the lustrous exteriors of the luggage range with expertly matched handles, zippers, and wheel housings.
In turn, each piece of the covetable collection spurs its owner to venture to the far ends of the world. If that is too ambitious a thought, one can add the new hues to his current arsenal and match the moods of his ever-changing wardrobe.
The collaboration between Jil Sander and British architect John Pawson is expanded with a new store in Singapore. Designed with an essentialist approach, the Hilton Hotel boutique boasts clean lines with teak wood punctuating white lime plaster, highlighting functional components of golden Calacatta marble shelves, sculptural clothing racks in brushed stainless steel, teak curving benches, and Vicenza limestone blocks.
The 230 sq m store offers the full range of Jil Sander clothing and accessories for men and women.
Gucci’s new line of accessories is a playful reimagination of the house’s emblematic monogram motif. Titled “GG Psychedelic” for its use of mesmerising and colourful patterns, the design can be seen on handbags, luggage, and watches, among other things.
The monogram is formed by stars in bright hues that create a hologram-like effect, giving the collection a modern, futuristic and optical look. If one needs a bag to show off his colourful personality or restless spirit, these are the must-haves for him.
Listen In Style
Louis Vuitton partners with one of the best audio companies in the world, Master & Dynamic, for its range of Horizon earphones. Available in five colours – jet black, pristine white, bright red, pink, and neon yellow – the earphones come with a charging case in a new graphite shade that mirrors the design of the Tambour Horizon connected watch.
Not merely stylish, the earphones are also equipped with new features such as active noise cancelling, extended 30-hour battery life, and a charging case with wireless charging capability. Being a true Louis Vuitton-designed lifestyle accessory, the Horizon earphones work seamlessly with the Tambour Horizon connected watch as well as other Bluetooth devices.
Ermenegildo Zegna is aiming to update its classic tailoring techniques with a modern-age appeal by introducing a fresher attitude to suiting. This ethos is reflected by its Blazer accessories collection. Inspired by tailoring and the meticulous details of its garments, there is much to admire in the collection – the combination of a horizontal ticket pocket and a flat patch pocket at the front panel, hand-painted leather edges contrasted with the black colour of the bag, and the refined handles with precious hand-stitched Asola (sartorial cut of a buttonhole) detail.
The bags are not just made of soft-as-silk Italian grained leather but are also crafted with a sophisticated and modern spirit to accompany Ermenegildo Zegna’s famed suits.
Sizes For All
After being the first luxury fashion house to extend its size range to Italian 50 in a women’s collection, Dolce&Gabbana is continuing this trajectory with its men’s collection as well. Embracing body positivity, the Sicilian-rooted #DGMen collection is now tailored to perfection up to size Italian 60.
The designers share that the extension aims to be more inclusive of men of all shapes and sizes. According to the duo, “Beauty is not a matter of clothing size; it is a state of mind, an attitude – that certain something that makes each man charming and unique.”
