O&B Audrey AdR
For anyone who wants to channel their inner princess this season, there’s nothing quite like a pair of ballerina flats to complete your stylish look. I’m currently hankering after O&B ‘s shoes (THB 4,590) from the Audrey AdR collection, as they are not only comfortable to wear, but also versatile enough for any glam gathering. Featuring a Victorian-style aesthetic, these flats are crowned with an elegant gold bucket. And of course, the contrasting tone of blue also elevates the look with a royal feel. – Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer
Franck Muller Long Island Peony Watch
Did you know that the Chinese name for ‘peony’ translates to ‘most beautiful’? It’s very fitting, as the watch on my wish list this week is none other than the yellow Franck Muller Long Island Peony (THB 761,000). There’s always something bloomin’ beautiful about a floral-inspired timepiece, and I love that Franck Muller has gone about it in true Franck Muller style. Eight luscious hand-painted blossoms adorn the dial alongside the watchmaker’s signature bold Arabic indices, bearing something regal and yet playful about it. It’s a whimsical timepiece. It’s a wonderful timepiece. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer

Longchamp Amazone D’hiver
With the end of the year approaching and holidays coming up, I can’t wait to jet off to a winter destination to escape from Bangkok’s heat and hustle. Aside from booking flights and hotel stays, looking on point is also important. I stumbled across this Longchamp Amazone D’hiver (THB 24,900) while I was looking for some style inspiration. Adorned with rabbit fur, this shoulder bag is a nod to my chilly holiday look. I also love the fact that it comes with a metallic chain strap, adding an edgy touch to its classic monochrome colour. Feminine yet fierce-looking, it can be paired easily with my winter outfits without being overpowering. – CO
IPSA Skin Charge CS Essence
IPSA recently launched Skin Charge CS Essence (THB 3,500 per 30ml), which aims to prevent all signs of ageing while improving the skin’s vitality and resilience. With a belief that prevention is better than a cure, I decided to give it a try, and the results were beyond my expectations. This anti-ager did not only fend off dullness and fight fine lines, but it also tightened my pores and hydrated my skin, giving me the softest and smoothest complexion I’ve felt in a long time. I like to apply it during the daytime before putting my makeup on, as it blends into the skin seamlessly without leaving a sticky finish. Infused with a hefty dose of botanical extracts, it prevents skin from external damages and increases collagen production, too. Whether you’re keen to ward off your skin’s imperfections or you’re on the hunt for an anti-ageing essential, this skincare essence is guaranteed to help your skin stay supple and taut at all times. – CO.
