Nestled in Orchard’s most prominent corner is Louis Vuitton’s Time Capsule pop-up. The smooth-surfaced mini building is guaranteed to pique the curiosity of passersby with its sleek, futuristic structure. Having journeyed to cosmopolises along the likes of Berlin and Hong Kong, the travelling exhibition houses the French maison’s historical pieces which dates all the way from 1854 to the present day. It kicked off with a massive fete last week, attended by local big names to South Korean actress Lee Sung Kyung, who dressed in Louis Vuitton’s preppy-chic Resort 2018 look.
While in South Korea’s capital, Dior Beauty’s The Art of Colour exhibition featuring archival makeup looks created by creative director Peter Philips, Serge Lutens, and Tyen, made its Asian debut with a bang too. Ambassador Bella Hadid was in attendance, before hitting the streets of Seoul in her favourite Matrix shades and all-black pieces, save for her calf-length denim vest.
Not too far away was Tokyo Fashion Week taking place. The buzziest moment of the fashion fest? Japan’s most prominent au courant names, Sacai and Undercover, sharing the catwalk in a joint fashion show of both the label’s Spring 2018 collections which were first unveiled in Paris earlier this month.
From Tyler the Creator’s Tokyo Fashion Week get-up to Hari Nef’s birthday suit, here are the week’s best fashion ’Grams you might have missed.

Solange Knowles starred in a special Evening Standard hair feature with a sculptural braid designed by hair artist Joanne Petit-Frére.
