Another spectacular collaboration

In the latest chapter of the Gentle Monster x Maison Margiela collaboration, one can look forward to 17 new designs, featuring temple-less touches, artisanal leather-wrapped frames and the iconic four white stitches. Through sunglasses, acetate spectacles and mask-like eyewear, the collection brings to mind the concept of futurism and evolving notions of how we dress and why—the memories, familiarities and instincts that inform the way we present ourselves.

The collection is now available at both Ion Orchard and Marina Bay Sands stores, till stocks last.

Sisley captures the light of the night

For skin in serious need of rejuvenation, the new Sisley Phyto-Blanc La Nuit is here to help, and what better time than to do so than at night? That’s when the skin can take a break and focus on regeneration. Rich in rainbow algae extract, Sisley’s patented Phyto-Blanc complex, and nourishing active ingredients like shea oil, the powerful night cream is good for three things: brightening the skin, reducing the appearance of dark spots by releasing the accumulated melanin, and making skin firmer and softer by the night. Yours for S$300 at Sisley counters islandwide and online.
