This month, we’re #obsessed with the top collections from Zegna, Coravin, Mr Porter, Le Labo, Nespresso and Joyce
Zegna – Stitch in time
Responsibility towards community and territory has been a driving principle since Zegna’s beginnings in 1910. Envisioned by the founder as a way to give back, Oasi Zegna is not only a unique model of societal and environmental consciousness but also, more broadly, a set of values that ultimately foster consistency and promote harmony. The same all-encompassing ethos is embodied in the Oasi Cashmere collection, which is also key to the brand’s Our Road to Traceability as it commits that the cashmere fibre used in the whole collection will be fully traceable by 2024.
Coravin – Wine art
In the first-ever artist edition of its popular wine by the glass system, Coravin Timeless Six+, this month global wine technology company Coravin debuts the Coravin x Keith Haring Artist Edition. The exclusive, single production run features the artist’s dancing figures rendered in graphic black and white, with chrome accents and a custom co-branded logo. As Haring once said, “It has become increasingly clear to me that art is not an elitist activity reserved for the appreciation of a few, but for everyone, and that is the end toward which I will continue to work.”
With the art name “Marni Mania”, men’s style destination Mr Porter and Italian luxury fashion house Marni are teaming up for an exclusive capsule collection. The 26-piece collection is comprised of ready-to-wear and knitwear and seeks to reinterpret signature styles of the Maison, founded in 1994 – namely a focus on their iconic brushed striped mohair, innovatively treated denims and nappa leathers. Besides T-shirts and hoodies in magenta pink, an exclusive Mr Porter colourway, it also introduces the new Marnigram print, featuring a gridded white pattern of flowers, hearts and moons.
Le Labo – Scents of adventure
Scent has a way of transporting us to another time or place. And there are few more enjoyable ways to visit some of the world’s great cities than through a whiff of a Le Labo City Exclusive. Available in 50ml, 100ml and 500ml bottles in the city they belong to, the fragrances pay tribute to a range of must-visit places such as Berlin, Paris, New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Dubai and Dallas. The Hong Kong City Exclusive is described as “a tug of war between the classical smell of citruses and the warm and transgressive hum of dark notes and woods where there is never a clear winner.”
The result of a partnership between Nespresso, K11 and Common Farms, a local indoor agri-tech farm, RE:FARM is a limited-time, experiential showcase that highlights the full circular journey of coffee –from capsule to cup to dining table – all under one roof. It will run until June 2023 at K11 Musea with various events and workshops, including a farm tour, harvesting workshop, planting workshop and aluminium jewellery workshop. The project is just one way Nespresso is striving to bring a positive impact to all its stakeholders, from farmers and business partners to consumers.
Joyce – Stuff of dreams
In a move from its longtime flagship at New World Tower, Joyce has opened an immersive new retail flagship at Pacific Place. The new 11,000 sq ft space is designed to “inspire customers to dream through an expressive shopping environment, the very best niche edit of luxury and emerging brands, and a plethora of exclusive only-at-Joyce initiatives”. The store includes the exploration-encouraging discovery room, fine jewellery, beauty, womenswear, accessories, menswear, a new section that embraces genderless self-expression, and a curated edit of homewares.
