      Mikimoto Eau De Parfum $275 (Mikimoto) Kokichi Mikimoto, the founder of Mikimoto Jewelry house, dedicated his life to pearls. He dreamed that his pearls should adorn the necks of women around the world. He etched his name in history by creating a successful and the world’s first cultured pearls empire in 1893. His dream lives on through Mikimoto, a luxury pearl jewelry house devoted to the pursuit of beauty for over a century. Now, the brand is dipping its feet in a new venture and is introducing its first-ever perfume. With its philosophy to co-exist with nature, the brand has created a scent that is a reflection of itself and evokes some distinct Japanese qualities, including the incense reminiscent of the country’s sea and forest.

      It seamlessly blends these essences with the brightness of citruses like grapefruit, Sicilian lemon and bergamot, along with evoking the refreshing sea breezes. The composition of the fragrance has a “pearl” note characterized by an intense floral blend of magnolia and iris. Mikimoto Eau de Parfum is an attempt at laying down the brand’s history through an olfactory expression. The fragrance is encapsulated within a sculptural bottle invoking a minimalistic style, with a central glass part and metallic rounded surfaces inspired by pearl shells. The scent is timeless and gender-neutral with universal appeal echoing the sentiments of a piece of pearl jewelry Karl Lagerfeld

      Pleated Trench Coat $595 (Karl Lagerfeld) The new arrivals from the late German fashion designer’s eponymous brand include ready-to-wear clothing, iconic bags, accessories, shoes and limited edition collectibles. A stand-out feature about the collection is that it is mostly comprised of transition clothing for your wardrobe when you’re looking to switch your clothing based on the seasons. From clothing for cooler summer evenings to the chillier days that are yet to befall us, this collection has all the trendy fall essentials you need. The strike a perfect balance between the timeless and the cosmopolitan, mixing charm, playfulness with a chic touch. Featured above is the transformer pleated trench coat, the classic trench reimagined with delicate pleats and feminine details in an iconic silhouette. The full pleated skirt sports a cinched waist creating an A-line design, adding a sense of sophistication to the traditional style. Inamorata

      Capreria Top $85; Capreria Bottom $85 (Inamorata) Emily Ratajkowski launched ‘Inamorata’ in 2017, with just a handful of covetable, statement-making swimsuits that have grown to become a celebrity must-have. Since then, although the brand has expanded beyond swimwear and added clothing and lingerie to its wardrobe, summer is still a busy time for its most sold apparel. A key point to keep in mind while investing in an Inamorata swimsuit is that the brand’s clothing is not for the shy. Wearing them should come with a “Caution: Too hot to handle” label attached.

      Featured above is the cheeky cut Capreria swimsuit set, part of the Satin Suit collection. The top is a twist on a triangle top with front-ties and a signature figure charm detail. It ties around the neck as well as the front offering added support. The bottom sports a tie side, with a similar signature figure charm on the extra-long ties. It has minimal coverage with a cheeky thong back is made from soft satin swim fabric, adding a layer of slight luster. Givenchy

      (Givenchy) Givenchy is a well-reputed brand that has been around since the 1950s. It is Givency craftsmanship that is featured in the iconic black dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. It’s distinct collection of bags ‘Antigona’, however, is among one of the House’s most loved and branded classics according to most retailers. Over the years, it has seen various reprises, yet the silhouette remains timeless. The Antigona collection is inspired by the heroine, Antigone from Greek mythology. The bag first debuted in Fall/Winter 2010, reinterpreting the renowned Boston shape and swiftly became the house’s signature.

      This season, Givenchy celebrates the 10th anniversary of the collection by unveiling the Antigona Soft, a supple, and more comfortable version of its elder sister. The architectural and rigid structure of the Antigona silhouette incorporates a seamless blend of feminine and masculine allure. The new Antigona Soft carries a clear family resemblance, playing on the same dual characteristics that define the Givenchy aesthetic. The collection of handbags stand the test of time and never go out of style, being particularly popular in the fall. They have a completed polished look and are stunning to instantly elevate any outfit. Tom Ford

      (Tom Ford) The first and most basic element of every great wardrobe is underwear, and not just any underwear but quality-guaranteed A-class underwear. It is the first thing you put, the last thing you take off and the only garment that gets anywhere close to your, erm, jibblies. If anything the wrong pair or ill-fitting underwear can dampen your day, or even ruin your entire #OOTD. We believe it is essential to spend an extra couple of dollars and invest in underwear of top-notch quality. It was Tom Ford who said in an interview with Vogue Magazine, a couple of years ago that men should always have “new socks and underwear” and that they should “throw away the old ones every six months”.

      The eponymous brand is well known for its “Menswear is a detail-driven business” mantra invoked in its highly-acclaimed super-coveted immaculately tailored suits, cashmere apparel, and refined accessories. The collection of uber-niche and comfortable men’s underwear, however, should be another must-have (for men, obviously!). Consisting of four basic styles, that is, briefs, trunks, short boxers and classic boxers, each of the cuts is available in various materials from cotton to silk. Yes, luxurious silk, and that too in a variety of patterns, animal prints, block shades, and neutral hues. If you’re looking to add an extra oomph to your underwear draw then Tom Ford’s […]
