I particularly love this Le Pliage Neo Geo Large Travel Bag from Lomchamp‘s latest collection for its functionality and contemporary designs. Effortlessly chic, it embodies geometric patterns and pastel palettes, making it a perfect bag for sunny days and your summer getaways. With its spacious compartments and shoulder straps, it will make a great accessory for any jet setters, too.

Emporio Armani has recently launched this fashionable top in the Spring/Summer 2018 collection, featuring its signature logo stamp. Designed with an edgy transparent silhouette and a comfortable light fabric, this white top is undoubtedly a perfect piece to wear in this Bangkok heat. On our casual days, we can simply layer it over a strapless cropped top or a chic black bralette to give our outfit a stylish spin. — CO
Since its launch last year, I’ve been in love with Tiffany’s HardWear collection. Sophisticated yet subversive, classic yet edgy, the designs embody the strength and spirit of the modern woman, imbued with the soul of New York. The minimalist looks are coupled with the collection’s curves and rounded lines, forming its daringly eye-catching ball, chain and lock motifs that shout girl power. The link earrings are without a doubt my favourite from the collection, which can easily fit into any urbane wardrobe with ease and add an industrial-chic to your outfit. — Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang Season 3 — the cool collaboration between Adidas and Alexander Wang has returned to steal our hearts again, and they are more than welcome. This time, Wang drew inspirations from the raw aesthetics of the manufacturing process, injecting unique flaws in his athleisure pieces. The trainer shoes are one of my favourite items from the launch, boasting vintage chunky-sole silhouette and industrial foam details. Eccentric and stylish, these unisex sneakers also feature a mishmash of materials, from rubber and suede to leather and nylon. — CO
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Alhambra collection, Van Cleef & Arpels has added new designs to the iconic collection, from necklaces and earrings to bracelets. My favourite from the new creations is the Vintage Alhambra long necklace, which features 20 alternating motifs of four-leaf clovers crafted in grey mother-of-pearl and diamond-studded pink gold. Timeless and elegant, the Maison’s new lucky charms can be matched with a pair of Magic Alhambra earrings and a five-motif bracelet. —Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
