Coach x Tom Wesselmann Collection
Coach introduces the Coach x Tom Wesselmann collection with a global campaign starring Hari Nef, Kai-Isaiah Jamal and Manami Kinoshita. Photographed by Juergen Teller, the campaign is inspired by the playful, optimistic spirit that Coach shares with the American pop artist.
Wesselmann’s artworks are featured on Coach icons such as the Rogue and Duffle bags and shearling jackets. Inspired by the theme of pleasure in Wesselmann’s work, the collection features the artist’s colourful graphic motifs. There are lips, flowers and still lifes with oversized objects. They are richly embellished onto Coach’s Signature jacquard and heritage Glovetanned leather with printing and embroidery with sequins. To create the collection, Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers worked closely with the artist’s family and estate.
The campaign captures the talent in a distinctly Wesselmann world of vibrant colour and oversized everyday objects, referencing the artist’s playful approach to scale. The campaign is brought to life with a digital experience. Explore and learn about the collection. There are also social filters where you can play with Wesselmann’s motifs, and a series of “EduToks” on TikTok discussing Wesselmann’s life and work.
The collection will be available in stores from 7 July at Coach Wisma and Coach Marina Bay Sands.
Corum Bubble Skull X-Ray
Corum is launching the new Bubble with the new Skull X-Ray watch. Inspired by early designs, this new limited-edition model honours both the coming of age of this iconic timepiece and the man behind it. Contemporary and creative touches have been added to the iconic timepiece that has retained the signature elements that made the Bubble famous.
The Bubble Skull X-Ray pays tribute to the line’s roots with a highly stylised yet realistic-looking skull taking centre stage on the dial. While the huge domed sapphire crystal slightly distorts the image, it is fully visible in the dark because it is totally luminescent. The skull glows green in the dark. Corum adds fluorescent green stitching to the synthetic alligator-like strap that is lined with rubber.
The watch is powered by an automatic movement (CO 082) that beats at 4Hz and offers 42 hours of power reserve. It is crafted in stainless steel with a black PVD treatment over it and boasts a sapphire case back so you can appreciate the movement. Both the domed front crystal and the back crystal are coated with an anti-reflective treatment. Water-resistant to 100 meters, the 47mmm case offers hours, minutes and seconds and is being created in a limited edition of just 666 pieces. The recommended retail price is CHF 4’000.
Brave This Summer With Dolce & Gabbana
We picked a few of these bright Dolce&Gabbana shades for the summer. Irregular shapes, bright-coloured frames and tinted lenses so you can stand out from the rest in style. We love a loud look. Brightens up the day. And it brings out the character in those who proudly don these shades. And if you want a sharper look, go for a cat-eye shape.
The innovative sunglasses from the DG Rubber collection feature wide temples with transparent inserts customised with the iconic DG crossed rubber logo. A rectangular shape with soft contours made of nylon fibre celebrates a fresh style and embodies a dynamic soul. A practical spiral rubber cord in the same colour and material gives it a sporty look. Available in three colours. There are yellow with grey mirrored lenses, orange with brown-orange metallic lenses, and blue with blue mirrored lenses.
MCM x Crocs In Two Styles
MCM has joined forces with Crocs Inc. to reimagine the Classic Clog in two distinct styles. Iconic elements of both brands have been remixed. MCM drew inspiration from its heritage. The first style features an interchangeable mini belt bag which can be worn as a fashion accessory & a 24-carat gold plate Jibbitz charms. The second style sports a striking neon design that features a playful bulldog motif in yellow and black and hardware details that resemble a dog collar.
The MCM x CROCS Belt Bag Flat Sandals is priced at S$580 while the MCM x CROCS M-PUP Flat Sandals is priced at S$490. The styles dropped on 29 June 2022 with a worldwide rollout that began at 9 pm.
GOLF WANG and Converse Reunite With the Chuck 70 Owl
Converse Singapore has launched the Converse x GOLF WANG Chuck 70 Owl. This GOLF WANG collection leans away from the playful colourways and patterns and focuses on a more mature and grown-up aesthetic. Instead of the familiar typical light pinks that have been common with previous releases, this new release features an atypical nature-driven pattern of a family of owls perched on branches.

Smell Great with Dunhill’s Driven Eau De Parfum
Dunhill introduces the latest fragrance DRIVEN Eau De Parfum. The fragrance is guided by intuition and insistence, a refined approach that’s both resilient and impactful. Perfumer Dave Apel has created a woody citrus floral blend that is elegant and modern with a bold signature.
DRIVEN opens up with a blend of bergamot, lime, red apple and plum. The heart of the fragrance delivers freshness with an unexpected blend of cardamom, cinnamon and jasmine, all harmoniously combined with velvety rose. The base maintains a warm depth, with notes of amber, Amyris wood, vanilla, cedarwood and musk for a modern dry down that balances ease with confidence.

Loewe Paula’s Ibiza Eclectic EDT
LOEWE’s newest fragrance Paula’s Ibiza Eclectic EDT celebrates the free spirit within you. The olfactory experience is an intriguing combination of sensual musk and innocent sweetness rounded up with a refreshing tartness much like a citrus cocktail. Liberating, hedonistic, bold and fun: Eclectic captures the joy of freedom and partying in a bottle.
Top notes consisting of Madagascan mandarin and black pepper are layered with gourmand notes of coconut, amplified by rich ylang ylang, floral orange flower absolute and animalic, night-blooming jasmine sambac. Exotic incense essential oil and frankincense linger alongside base notes of sweet vanilla, musk and soft, woody Australian sandalwood.
50ml EDT is now retailing online and in stores at S$138.00.
