The Agenda: Audemars Piguet’s Petite New Royal Oak Watches, Loewe’s Trippy Tropical Collection, And Other Things You Need To Know

01 | Audemars Piguet introduces new 34mm models of the Royal Oak Selfwinding 

For those with slimmer wrists, fret not: Audemars Piguet has bestowed upon us a new collection of perfectly sized wrist candy. Four references in stainless steel and-or 18-carat pink gold join the Manufacture’s current Royal Oak Selfwinding and Quartz collection — we’re particularly drawn to the two-tone stainless steel model that’s set with an 18-carat pink gold bezel and bracelet, as well as a silver-toned ‘Grande Tapisserie’ dial.

The new pieces are powered by the new calibre 5800 selfwinding movement, which has been endowed with a dedicated oscillating weight that was specifically developed for the new 34mm series.

02 | Glow up with Estée Lauder’s limited-edition highlighter

For a subtle, natural glow that’ll get everyone around you asking for your skincare routine, there’s the new Estée Lauder Pure Color Love Cooling Highlighter. It brings with it a wonderfully balmy texture and a refreshing, cooling sensation upon application — perfect as we approach some of the hottest months of the year.

With four shimmery shades that range from Moon Pearl to Bronze Beam, its blend of multi-dimensional pearls provides a buildable inner-glow look. Meanwhile, the unique dome shape and compact packaging allows for easy application on the cheekbones, temples, forehead and cupid’s bow.

03 | The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition makes phone sexy again

Phones might be utilitarian items, but who says they can’t double up as a stylish accessory? Samsung has just released a special edition of its Galaxy Z Flip, created in collaboration with American designer Thom Browne, whose sartorial designs have found fans in the likes of Michelle Obama.

The Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition features a sleek pebble grey exterior, and, despite being encased in glass, maintains its matte look that’s both soft to touch and comfortable to hold. It also comes with a matching set of custom-designed Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Watch Active 2, so you’ll really be able to coordinate some looks.

04 | Escape to the trippy Balearics with Loewe Paula’s Ibiza Spring Summer 2020 collection

In typical Loewe fashion, this isn’t your average light-and-breezy resort collection. Expect acidic neons, hedonistic tie-dyes and rave-inspired designs; when they say it’s a visual feast, they certainly aren’t exaggerating. Yet it all remains wearable. Mermaids swim amongst red corals on maxi-dresses and long robes with ruffles sleeves, while jikin goldfish meander through waterlilies on bolero skirts and wide-hemmed capris.

As an added bonus, Loewe will donate a portion of each purchase to charity — they’re supporting Spanish alliance Plataforma de Infancia to ensure a better future for children in socially vulnerable groups affected by the pandemic.

05 | Dior’s Pre-Fall collection brings sartorial style to your kids’ wardrobes 

Clothes for children don’t need to be childish, as Dior aptly proves. Kids can get a taste of Dior’s renowned tailoring with its new Pre-Fall 2020 collection. From diaphanous tulle skirts and jackets in velvet and houndstooth for the girls to sophisticated ensembles for boys, there are plenty of choices for fashionable tots to get their style game on.

For girls, the colour palette is a vision in shades of powdery pink and soothing neutrals, while the boys get a very dapper selection of gentlemanly navies and beiges.
