Pedal to the Metal

Carrera returns to a passion so prominent in its history: Formula One. The eyewear brand recently announced its entry into the famed sport, having signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with the Alfa Romeo Sauber Formula One team. Unveiled during the Official Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team launch, the partnership sees the Carrera logo appearing on Sauber Formula One car livery, on the sides of the visor of race helmets and on the race overalls.


Girls’ Trip

Effortlessly cool, the six vibrant T-shirts of Fendi’s Pop line announce a virtual Pop Tour, starting from Rome and soon reaching other cities around the world. These collector’s items reinterpret names of famous areas in Rome with an ironic twist, highlighting the Fendi Fun side. There is Colosseo Beach, Fendi Palace, Appia Antica Boulevard, Testaccio Bay, Trastevere Sunset and Trevi Falls. Look out for the special edition exclusive to the Rome flagship boutique, which features the West Garbatella version.


New Classic

Driven by the success of last year’s Selena Grace handbag and accessories is Coach x Selena Gomez. The new collection includes her first ready-to-wear collaboration with the American brand, designed in collaboration with creative director Stuart Vevers. Also in the exciting range are irresistible outerwear, handbags, small leather goods and other accessories, all of which reflects the singer’s own personal style and confident spirit.


Hit Refresh

Borrowing the style codes of traditional shirts, Lacoste’s new Paris Polo is emblematic of contemporary chic. It is designed to cater to the modern man, offering optimum mobility and comfort without compromising elegance. Note how the short-sleeved piece smoothly outlines the body to fit perfectly under a sharp blazer or casual jacket, making it a great alternative to the everyday shirt. Made of stretch cotton mini pique, Paris Polo comes in 15 colours.


Party Time

Tory Burch was in Hong Kong earlier this month to celebrate the launch of her namesake brand’s new space at Alexandra House, which draws on the archive of English interior designer David Hicks. The CEO and chief creative officer hosted a stylish cocktail party at the Landmark Alexandra boutique, located in the heart of Central. In attendance were actress and singer Li Bing Bing, who joined Burch and Michel Gonzalez, Tory Burch Asia president, as well as Warren Bishop, head of retail – commercial property from Hongkong Land Limited, in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Guests included Simon and Qi Qi Yam, Maxi Li and socialites Daisy Ho, Alison Chan El Azar, Antonia Li and Natalie Chan. Regional celebrities Tatjana Saphira and Amelia Henderson also lit up the night. The festivities continued at SEVVA, where South Korean singer-songwriter CL performed.
