This week isn’t even over, but we’ve already heard several shocking news. First up was the bombshell that at least two members of the Kardashian/ Jenner clan are expecting. While Khloe Kardashian may have hinted on Snapchat that she is, indeed, pregnant, Kylie Jenner — the youngest in the family — has yet to address the rumours that she’ll be having a child as well. The latest to join the fray is Kim Kardashian West herself, who’s just confirmed she’s expecting her third child via surrogacy.

Not so coincidentally, all these revelations have come up just ahead of the 14th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which is slated to premiere this weekend. Say what you will about this family — we have to admit they’re pretty savvy at keeping themselves in the headlines.

Equally interesting (though not as tabloid-worthy) was the official announcement that Game of Thrones actors Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie are engaged. Playing Jon Snow and Ygritte respectively, the two made their public debut as a couple only last year.

Over in Singapore, things have been relatively quiet, save for the launch of popular South Korean eyewear label Gentle Monster’s first store here. Located at Ion Orchard, the boutique is a whimsical space filled with art installations and themed sections. Do check out the place this weekend, and don’t forget to stock up on mooncakes for the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival on 4 October.

#lifestyleasiasg’s Instagram of the Week

the cheat sheet
Bet you’ve never seen an eyewear boutique as intriguing.

Named Samsara, Gentle Monster’s first Singapore store is monikered after Ron Fricke‘s eponymous travelogue — which translates to “cycle of life” in Sanskrit. As expected, the immersive space is replete with art installations interweaved with its experimental frames.
