VistaJet teams up with Entourage

This Lunar New Year, VistaJet is working with Entourage Collection, an exclusive private member’s concierge and travel company, to provide three incredible trips. Go heli-skiing in the Swiss Alps, admire the sunrise from a hot air balloon in Africa (Kenya, Victoria Falls and South Africa) or steep yourself in the culture and traditions of Kyoto and Tokyo. Travel will entirely be on VistaJet, obviously, with Michelin-approved menus designed to keep bellies full and hearts, happy.

Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi Centre reopens

The next time you’re in Hanoi, there’s the new Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi Centre to be experienced. Set in the vibrant French Quarter, a walkable and luxurious corner of the city, you’d find the hotel conveniently located minutes away from iconic landmarks (Hoan Kiem Lake, The Huc Bridge and Temple of Literature, to name a few). Just reopened this year, the hotel boasts style and comfort across all 155 rooms and suites, gym and wellness studio, and four restaurants and bars; this includes the new Miami-inspired Cabana Club Pool, where guests may enjoy bespoke cocktails by the water or a garden-side South American barbecue.

hermes beauty

It’s been four years since Hermès Beauty first launched. Packaged in Pierre Hardy fashion (the same Pierre Hardy who’s designed Hermès’ shoes and jewellery for three decades), its first collection of lipsticks were simple and pure, and this simplicity continues. The limited-edition spring/summer 2024 collection paints three lipsticks and three nail polishes in rich, generous and bold shades. Matte, light-absorbing lipsticks come with a twist on red, pink and orange, while the nail polishes colour the mood with electric blue, dense purple with a touch of magenta, and orange with a hint of pink.

Devialet’s first artistic collaboration

Old is gold and gold is… forever. Dressed in 22.5-carat gold leaf and polished red varnish is the Devialet Phantom I 108 dB, the result of French audio excellence, the handicraft of Ateliers Gohard and creativity of two artists—Yang Bao, a pianist and installation artist based in New York, and Wa Liu, a multimedia artist based in Beijing. Inspired by the dragon and Bao’s concept of ‘infinity music’, the Phantom I embodies the combined force of nature and music, exuding power, clarity and precision that Devialet has always been known for. Yours for S$8,899 exclusively at the Devialet Marina Bay Sands store or online.

Good optics

Forget your contacts. Glasses are in (they have been for a while) and finding the perfect pair can instantly smarten up your look. Channel your inner Clark Kent with Gentle Monster’s 2024 Optical Collection, a unique line inspired by the high school experience. From quirky to timeless, the collection is an extensive one that combines bold and sophisticated metal elements with tinted lenses of various shades, so you no longer have to squint for the perfect pair anymore.

Singapore’s first homegrown duty-free retailer has found a home at the Singapore Flyer. The 347-square-metre duplex made a soft launch just last week, and hopes to capitalise on its new prime location with its large variety of liquor, eyewear and beauty brands. Visitors can expect luxury brands such as Glenmorangie, Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta, as well as homegrown favourites like TWG Tea. The store will fully open in the second quarter of the year, integrating immersive technology and automation all across for an unparalleled shopping experience.
