As editors at Lifestyle Asia, we’re privileged to get a first look at the most exciting new luxury goods daily, but with so many new releases rolling out all the time, it’s all but impossible to cover every single lust-worthy find we have our eyes on. That’s what you’ll find in Weekly Obsessions: a running list of highly covetable items we’re currently mad about — because if it’s on our radar, it should definitely be on yours, too. From the must-have shoe of the moment to age-defying beauty products, scroll down to see what our editors are obsessing over this week.

 

Weekly Obsessions - sacai x Beats-2

sacai x Beats by Dr. Dre BeatsX wireless earphones

I love using wireless earphones, but no matter which brand it is, there’s always one common problem: they don’t look that great fashion-wise, which I think for something that you usually only put on when you’re out-and-about, is pretty essential. This is about to change though, because fashion house sacai has just given Beats by Dr. Dre‘s BeatsX wireless earphones a stylish update (HK$1,188 from apple.com, Lane Crawford and Joyce Boutique). Taking inspiration from jewellery, designer Chitose Abe created customisable beads that can be attached to the neckband, instantly transforming the earphones into a fashion accessory that is playful, stylish and full of personality. —Cindie Chan, Style Editor

 

Weekly Obsessions - Regime des Fleurs

Regime des Fleurs water / wood fragrance

To be honest, the rate at which I use perfume (mainly for nicer occasions, and that’s if I remember) and the number of bottles I have taking up space on my shelf is disturbingly disproportionate, so when I buy a perfume I have to truly love it. One brand that’s been seducing me into a future purchase is Los Angeles fragrance house Regime des Fleurs, which adds a touch of James Turrell cool to what is reminiscent of an old world perfume bottle. Frequently found in museum gift shops (it even debuted its newer Hawaii-inspired range at a Whitney Museum exhibition last year), the artist-founded brand calls itself a “postmodern art practice in the form of a meta-luxury brand.” On a spiritual bent lately, I have my eye on water / wood (HK$1,990), which to me is a hippie ritual in a bottle: herbaceous with hints of pine needles, cedarwood and sandalwood, a hit of smokiness and the cleansed aura of white lotus blossom. Perhaps it can offer me some solace or transformation in the current mercury retrograde. —Evelyn Lok, Associate Editor

 

Weekly Obsessions - Mr P

Mr P. camp-collar striped cotton shirt

Call me an eager beaver, but apparel like this quadruple striped camp-collar already has me looking forward to warmer days. This particular version (approx HK$1,166) put out by the MR PORTER private label is made using a 70s-appropriate blend of viscose and cotton poplin. Thanks to visual economy on the design and detailing fronts, it also aligns handily with contemporary #menswear sensibilities — essentially meaning that you can wear it with more stuff and less fuss. A short hem and box cut make this a no-brainer when you’re looking for something to wear on sabbatical — try it out with seersucker shorts and your go-to poolside tee — but its real usefulness becomes apparent when you wear it in a more urban context. Paired with German army trainers and monochrome chinos, you’ll look every bit the consummate “amateur league bowler who happens to be deeply into Beaujolais”. And yes, that is a look you should be interested in achieving. Randy Lai, Staff Writer

 

weekly obsessions- longchamp

Longchamp’s personalised Mademoiselle Longchamp hobo bag

Why would I ever say no to personalising my accessories? The newest Mademoiselle Longchamp hobo bag (HK$9,650) is walking itself right up my alley, with 26 letters, a cat, heart star and the hashtag symbol — all in both pale gold or black nickel that can adorn the purse and really make it your own (HK$100 each). The bag comes in nine different colours, so you can pick the perfect one to compliment your wardrobe, and decorate it with whatever words you want. I’m extremely partial to seeing #AYDEE everywhere, so this is a must-have for me. Aydee Tie, Head of Marketing
