Givenchy Mini-Mystic Handbags

Givenchy welcomed the new year with a scaled-down version of its iconic Mystic bag. The latest version retains a light, elegant shape and is versatile enough to complement outfits for both day and night.

The quintessential Givenchy craftsmanship is easily recognisable in its hand-stitched details, hand-painted edges, and a stylized double-G clasp in a new, silky gold finish. We love this beauty for its removable strap that allows the Mini-Mystic to be worn over the shoulder or crossbody, aside from being carried by hand or in the crook of the elbow.

Maserati GranTurismo Zèda

Maserati celebrated the end of the petrol-powered GranTurismo’s 12-year production run by building a one-off model called Zèda. The unique model designed by Centro Stile Maserati signifies the dawn of a new era through a new colour scheme.

The end of production of the Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio marks the beginning of a new era for the Modena plant. The special one-off show car also signals the redevelopment of the Modena plant. It will be undergoing a total renovation that will see the facility devoted to the construction of the new super sports model.

Puma x Balmain

Iconic brands Puma and Balmain collaborate to debut their first collection created with famed English actress Cara Delevingne. This collaboration features two limited-edition capsule collections, both designed by Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing and his good friend and muse, Delevingne.

They have worked on several projects together, with the actress fronting campaigns, closing runways, starring in videos and collaborating on the design of special-editions for the luxury brand. This new collection is at the crossroads of sport and fashion, with pieces inspired by traditional boxing gear and infused with Parisian couture, making it one of the best luxury gifts out there.

Continuing where they left off in the last season, Timberland once again collaborates with pioneering Japanese streetwear brand, mastermind JAPAN, for a joint collection. This partnership has churned out another successful range of items that blend mastermind JAPAN’s signature dark aesthetic with Timberland’s vintage-inspired outdoor design.

The collection features a series of retro outdoor items, such as the rare weather breaker jacket and waterproof bottoms that have been revived from the Timberland Archive. These items have been updated with a high-contrast black and white palette, reflective logo and metallic details. New additions include embroidered mastermind JAPAN branding, as well as reflective detailing throughout, making it a super stylish luxury gift.

Amouage Love Mimosa

Amouage Love Mimosa is a homage to female empowerment. Inspired by all the women who paved the way for future generations, Christopher Chong chose to work with a female perfumer to develop a scent that is brave and bold. It mimics the aroma of the mimosa hills of Tanneron in southeastern France.

The fragrance opens with an aquatic tone accented by violet leaves and cascalone. Hints of pear add a juicy sweetness with a subtle fruity aroma that is light. Amouage’s signature glass bottles are introduced in a citrus yellow finish adorned with a yellow Swarovski crystal.
