Longines Master

Longines Master Collection

The Longines Master Collection has received a new face for the line, and its new face is one that I am currently crushing wild heart eyes for (THB 89,000). Designed to be a timepiece with a corporate design ethos, the watch manages to bring together a classic elegance with an excellent quality; most charmingly now with the addition of a moon phase indicator. I’m a sucker for a sweet moon phase indicator, and I love the sense of poetry it brings to this otherwise relatively serious watch. The Arabic numeral date ring is nice and big so I can sneak a quick peek at the time even in a meeting that should have been an email, and I love the 40mm size for a bold yet sophisticated statement for the wrist. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer

my Clarins Re-Move Cleansing Milk

I’m still very much shook by all the cool stuff you can get at the new KIS multi-brand beauty store at Central World. It’s the one place I’ve seen in Bangkok that offers Clarins’ youth range, which I love! The absolute best cleanser I’ve used is the Youth Range Milk Cleanser (THB 800). The squeeze bottle is super easy (and kind of fun) to use and the milky texture is soft, thoroughly cleansing, and fabulously moisturising. It smells naturally gorgeous too and leaves your face looking brighter and healthier. — Karn Chatikavanij, Style Writer

Global Views

Global Views Ivory Golded Oval Bowl

I have a thing for a fruit bowl. Something about the sight of a fruit-filled bowl in the kitchen just warms my heart right up. And as I surfed the internet searching for an eye-catching piece to up my kitchen-organising game, I stumbled upon this delicate Ivory Turquoise Feather Swirl Folded Oval Bowl (THB 14,819) by Global Views. Intricately crafted out of glass and shaped into a slick slash smooth oval shape, the sea-shade bowl becomes an accent piece that goes perfectly well with the colours of my kitchen’s staple produces — like lemons and oranges.–Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer


Puma x Sue Tsai Nova Cherry Bomb Sneakers

I completely adore anything that flaunts Japanese cherry blossoms. When I was on a lookout for a new cool pair of sneakers, I came across these Puma x Sue Tsai Nova Cherry Bomb Sneakers (THB 3,229) which I thought were the perfect addition to my streetwear collection. Aren’t they bomb? The nature-inspired print with hand-drawn flower graphics on the kicks make this a gorgeous pair. And yet beyond delicate looks, these kicks are also powerful and bold. Their neoprene upper made of soft leather offer complete traction, whilst the midsole keeps it soft and comfortable, so I won’t be worried when I’m out for a run or while attending my Zumba classes. — Alisha Pawa, Staff Writer

Kate Spade Daisy Chain Necklace

I know, I know — summer is pretty much over. But this daisy chain necklace from Kate Spade (THB 7550) is too cute to miss out on. It is technically from the SS19 collection but it’s still in stores, and I’m so glad it is. The daisies are sure to add a pop of brightness and sunshine to the rainy autumn season and they make a statement necklace that goes great with so many kinds of outfits. — KC
