Van Cleef & Arpels

As a symbol of change and hope, butterflies are a powerful representation of life. To celebrate the spring season, Van Cleef & Arpels takes the winged creatures of the Two Butterfly collection in whimsical tones. Past collections consist of wood, lacquer, enamel, mother-of-pearl, precious and ornamental stones. This time, the latest creation employs a sophistication sparkle in the intense blue of turquoise and yellow gold with dazzling diamonds in the form of a pendant, ring and earrings.


A new season calls for new shades to add to the collection. This month, we’re highlighting Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs and DB Eyewear by David Beckham. Focusing on contemporary styles, DB Eyewear is designed for any stylish individual, suitable for day and night occasions. As for Carolina Herrera, this spring/summer 2022 season unveils a collection representing classic and contemporary elegance. Titled ‘Fun in the Sun’, fans of the brand can explore the oversized, cat eye and butterfly silhouettes with intricate details. With tortoiseshell as a classic material, Marc Jacobs embraces it in full force. This season, the ICON sunglasses and optical frames feature bold shapes in flat-top, cat eye and butterfly shapes for that cool factor. Check out our favourites.

Manolo Blahnik

Classifying as the sexiest shoes globally, Manolo Blahnik is highly coveted by any fashion maven. Every design is breathtaking, classy, yet unique due to its exquisite silhouette. For spring/summer 2022, Manolo Blahnik takes inspiration from the rich history of Italy through distinctive architects, novelists and theatre. For example, the designer references the 19th-century photographs of Sicily island by novelist Giovanni Verga and the beautiful opulent brocades and swirling arabesques from the Italian renaissance. That’s not all. The designer infuses elements from the work of Italian dramatist Luigi Pirandello and design elements by Italian architect Piero Portaluppi. Romantic and tasteful, spring/summer 2022 is a collection worth exploring due to its beautiful craftsmanship, elegant details and extravagant inspirations. Discover the collection here.

Compatible with the Alpha Bravo range, the wearer can mix and match the Alpha Bravo pieces with the latest TUMI+ travel accessories to personalise their bags to their needs.
