The Agenda: An Art-Deco High Jewellery Necklace From Cartier, COS’ Debut Activewear Line, And Other Things You Need To Know

01 | Cartier’s geometric Mauna necklace joins its Magnitude high jewellery line

In Cartier’s Magnitude high jewellery collection, bold materials meet dynamic design, and the latest addition to the collection is no different. The Mauna necklace shows off the topaz’s nuanced shades, ranging from bright orange to deep red, a palette that complements the lava-esque design.

Stones are cut in geometric shapes in Cartier’s signature style, with rectangles, squares, trapezoids making for a graphic silhouette. Its heart consists of three imperial topazes and a tantalising 11-carat pearl-cut bicolour stone that dangles beneath.

02 | COS’ new activewear range lets you work out in minimalist luxe

If Marie Kondo backed a fitness wear line, you can bet it’d be COS’ new Active line. Recycled polyester and organic cotton headline the collection, but don’t be mistaken — pieces are designed to conform to the wearer’s silhouette and feel wonderful on the skin, allowing for dynamic movement and unadulterated style.

The collection, which features items like sports bras, shirts, leggings and shorts, comes in a refined palette of olive brown, rich navy and deep petrol. There are even some thoughtful accessories (like a gym bag with hidden pleats) to complete your #fitspo look.

03 | Indulge in as many cocktails as you want with Lyre’s newly-launched non-alcoholic spirits

We’re not ashamed to admit that our alcohol intake has seen a bit of an uptick in recent months — so far be it from us to tell anyone to cut back. What we do suggest is switching it up with some non-alcoholic spirits, that is, drinks that taste just like their alcoholic counterparts but that have zero actual alcohol.

The full range of Lyre’s spirits have just launched in Singapore, and are now available on their e-store on Amazon. For foolproof classics and liquor cabinet essentials, go with the versatile Dry London Spirit or the Aperitif Dry — if you’re looking to flex your mixologist muscles, they’ve also got more exotic variants like absinthe, amaretto and sweet vermouth.

04 | Pamper dry hands with YSL Beauty’s Libre Hand Cream

With all the additional hand washing that everyone’s been doing, it’s important to remember to take extra care of the skin in that area. Enter YSL Beauty’s new Libre Hand Cream, featuring one of its iconic scents — a sultry, cool Moroccan floral — in an ultra-hydrating hand lotion.

The Libre Hand Cream was specially made for dry skin, and is nothing short of a multi-sensorial experience: rich in vitamins and soothing ingredients like almond oil, shea butter and verbena from YSL Beauty’s very own Ourika Gardens in Morocco, the cream is proven to increase hydration and firmness in just several hours.

05 | Comme des Garçons debuts special items to celebrate store reopenings

As the world slowly ekes back to life, brick-and-mortar stores are beginning to reopen. To celebrate — and to shine a ray of optimism on what’s in store — Comme des Garçons has launched three new styles, a jacket, a shirt, and a tote bag. 

Each of the items feature positive slogans in the brand’s tradition edgy style, and are only available in physical Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market shops, which means that Singaporean fashionistas will have to keep an eye out to see when the pieces will drop.
