This month, we’re #obsessed with the top collections from Polo Ralph Lauren, Crocs, Guerlain, Chopard, Leica and Sacai
Polo Ralph Lauren – Horsing around
Polo Ralph Lauren’s newest family of accessories embraces a spirit of adventure, romance and optimism. The Polo ID Collection was inspired by the untamed beauty of wild horses and equestrian craftsmanship, as shown in the namesake hardware that spotlights the iconic Pony Player logo and the rich Italian leather finished with equestrian stitch detailing. Ranging from handbags and small leather goods to footwear and belts, the collection is available in four main silhouettes: The Shoulder, The Mini Shoulder, The Saddle and The Envelope.
Crocs – Freshly squeezed
Making the third round of collaborations between the global leader in innovative casual footwear and the award-winning American footwear designer, the Crocs Pollex Clog by Salehe Bembury in Cobbler orange follows earlier releases Cucumber, Crocodile, Stratus and Urchin. The latest version continues Bembury’s signature fingerprint combination design, combining it with dramatic concave ridges and detailed lines to exhibit boundless energy. Quantities are limited so anyone interested should hot-foot it now to the Juice store at K11 Musea.
Guerlain – Liquid gold
Parisian beauty specialist Guerlain has done it again, reinventing its already iconic foundation franchise Parure Gold with two new formulas that incorporate an exceptional concentration of skincare actives while delivering impeccable 24-hour wear and two distinct finishes: incomparable radiance and a no-transfer luminous matte finish. Parure Gold Skin and Parure Gold Skin Matte are 85% rejuvenating skincare-based and boast an ultra-sensory melt-in texture that delicately envelops the skin. Besides a touch of 24k gold, key ingredients include white peony petal and root extract.
Chopard – Queen of hearts
“To congratulate, thank, encourage yourself or simply to feel alive: treating yourself to a piece of jewellery is a testimony of the respect and love that you have for yourself.” This is the motto and meaning behind Chopard’s My Happy Hearts, a new collection of dainty hearts to be worn alone or stacked as stylish accessories. Available in ethical rose or white gold with carnelian, mother-of-pearl or diamond-set versions, My Happy Hearts is made up of necklaces, chain bracelets, rings and earrings based on the principle of a single heart to remind the wearer to radiate her own inner light.
Leica x Bape – Photo finish
Street art, streetwear and street photography – three art forms that capture the urban zeitgeist and three creative branches that come together in the strictly limited, special-edition Leica D-Lux 7 “A Bathing Ape X Stash”. Available in a black finish from Leica and a silver version from A Bathing Ape, the compact camera also comes decked out in streetwear label Bape’s ABC Camo print with the brand’s Ape Head insignia and the distinctive wildstyle tag of American graffiti artist Stash. It also has the same technical specifications as the serially produced model.
Sacai – Mad, mad world
Sacai, the Japanese epitome of classic meets chic, is joining forces with irreverent Japanese artist MADSAKI of Kaikai Kiki Gallery for its men’s autumn/winter and women’s pre-autumn collections. The collaboration pieces include a leather jacket, blouson, knit, hoodie, pullover and T-shirt with provocative proclamations by MADSAKI appearing throughout the collection: Sheeples, Zombies and Kool-Aid. Exclusive to the men’s collection, the leather jacket is produced in collaboration with masters of the leather Perfecto biker jacket, Schott.
