Loro Piana enters the autumn/winter 2024 season with Into The Wild, a capsule collection currently on show at Ion Orchard Singapore. Until 30 June 2024, everyone is invited to “reconnect with nature and the outdoors” through a collection of technical fabric, precious silk and cashmere, treated to withstand the harsh elements of the outdoors. Go on an adventure, go wild, and end the day looking as good as it started.

The collection is available at select Loro Piana boutiques and online. Find the pop-up at the atrium on level one at Ion Orchard.

Bvlgari Resort Bodrum is opening in Turkey this 2026

Once home to the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, Bodrum still remains a place to be at in the Mediterranean. Even more so, when the Bvlgari Resort Bodrum opens this 2026 on a 60-hectare peninsula on the Türkbükü-Gölköy coast. The resort, enveloped by 100 Bvlgari-branded mansions, will offer 84 rooms and suites, with the 800-sqm Bvlgari Villa as the crown jewel. Guests will enjoy panoramic sea views, an extensive range of facilities, a private beach equipped with water sports, and more.

Panerai shines bright with the Submersible Elux LAB-ID PAM01800

Panerai, famous for its early innovations in the field of luminescence, enlightens us once again with the Submersible Elux LAB-ID PAM01800. Founded on the legacy of the Elux, a patented technology (1966) that was significant to the Italian Navy, the fully mechanical PAM01800 packs a punch within a 49mm case: a four patent system, 500m water resistance, dedicated energy-storing barrels, and on-demand lighting for as long as 30 minutes. Only 150 pieces will be made, with 50 pieces available annually. Yours for S$142,700.


The Gucci autumn/winter 2024 men’s campaign

Gucci just revealed the AW24 collection with a campaign shot by David Sims. Rejecting the notion of fashion as uniform, it pays tribute to the human expression, where every glance and gesture has a story to tell, and brings the collection to life through a cast of distinctive personalities. Through their unique perspectives, Gucci celebrates beauty with individuality and invites the rest of us to explore and embrace our true selves, dressed in a vibrant canvas of ever-contemporary wardrobe staples, of course. The collection will be launched in stores worldwide this July.
