Longines has recently introduced Conquest 1/110th Roland Garros to celebrate its longstanding relationship with the French Open, marking the upcoming tennis match at Roland Garros this year. Inspired by the tennis tournament’s iconic clay court, this stately timepiece is adorned with an anthracite dial sprinkled with sprightly orange hues. I adore this special edition not only for its ornamentally sporty style but also its unparalleled technical excellence. Designed to be accurate to about five seconds per year, the timepiece achieves the incredible level of precision, too. — CO
As a big Disney fan, Coach’s third collaboration with Disney sounds like the beginning of happy ever after to me, but with a gothic, quirky twist. Known as A Dark Fairy Tale, the special-edition collection is inspired by ‘where the road to Happily Ever After takes a turn and shadows steal the spotlight.’ Featuring freaky imagery such as poison apple and spooky eyes from Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty plastered on ready-to-wear and leather goods, our favourite piece from the collection is this Snow White foldover crossbody clutch in sunflower colour, which easily stands out when matched with any dark-coloured outfits. — Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
It’s hard not to love this Kan I bag from Fendi. Adorned with intricate threads and stylish bows around the edges and handles, it looks exceptionally chic. The colourful details also add a unique touch to its neutral brown shade. Elegant and functional, the bag features two roomy compartments that will hold all of your essentials and keep them nicely in place. With the detachable shoulder straps, it’s extremely versatile, too; you can carry it to your business luncheons or even hold it as a clutch at evening social events. — CO
While everyone is talking about the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now Duke and Duchess of Sussex) and the Givency wedding dress she was wearing, the Duchess’ good taste in style has always been in the spotlight. If I have to pick a favourite from Markle’s style moments, it would be last Christmas when she showed up in a Sentaler wrap coat, Club Monaco velvet dress, Chloé bag, Philip Treacy hat and Snowflake large round jacket earrings from her favourite jeweller, Birks. Each of the dazzling 18-karat white gold earring featured two clusters of diamonds, paying homage to the beauty of Canadian winters with the snowflake motif. — Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
Louis Vuitton has created a more playful take in its recent collections, and this Uncover Pump is no exception. Effortlessly cool, this pair of pumps features a monochrome elastic strap that wraps across the feet, adding an exceptionally edgy touch to its timeless silhouette. It’s also made from a polished patent calf leather, which exudes professional elegance and creates a captivating contrast with its fun elements. With its comfortable block heels and classic black shades, these stylish shoes are not only practical, but also easy to match, allowing you to pair them with any outfits. — CO
