01 | Burberry’s monogrammed puffer jackets
If you’re packing for your year-end winter holiday, make sure you grab one of Burberry’s new puffer jackets for good measure. Featuring the house’s iconic interlocking TB monogram, these warm jackets create a fresh feel to the usual down jackets. Instead of dull, monochromatic colours, the capsule collection weaves in plenty of bright tones that promise to colour your holiday snaps with a memorable sense of chic.
Now available at all Burberry boutiques and on burberry.com.
02 | Get print-happy with Minor Miracles
We’ll admit it: we get excited by local fashion talents who aren’t afraid to try something new. That’s why we are crushing on Minor Miracles, a newly-launched print and textile studio that’s based out of Chip Bee Gardens. Opened by husband-wife team Jason Song and Dawn Bey, you can expect to find a line of joyfully-coloured separates perfect for our humid climate. Each print featured in the clothing is also design and made by hand, giving you a personalised connection with your garment.
03 | Urban Decay gears up for the festive season
The year’s almost done, and you feel like you still haven’t tried anything new? Then try this: give your makeup look a makeover this party season with Urban Decay’s Holiday 2019 collection. Featuring a compilation of their best-selling products and some never-done-before shades, the range promises to get you looking glam from the moment you step out of the shower to the moment you get home from a night of frolicking good fun. Look out for new items — like the mini lippies in new colours like “Red Hot” and “Bing”, or the to-die-for Party Favour Moondust palette — or pick from their range of “greatest hits” like the Mini Honey Eyeshadow Palette or the Heavy Dose All Nighter Duo.

04 | Chanel’s CODE COCO gets a sparkly makeover
Following into the third year since its inception, the CODE COCO from Chanel now features a fully diamond-paved dial for the first time. After all, Gabrielle Chanel was known to favour diamonds above all other gemstones, as it represented the modernity and femininity of the wearer. Alongside these sparkly new faces, the collection also introduces the Beige Gold edition of the watch, which features a warm gold alloy that is exclusively used by Chanel and is touted to match all skin complexions. And for women who are shopping for the perfect holiday timepiece, the CODE COCO in Mozambique rubies will make a fascinating addition to your festive outfits.
Now available at all Chanel Watches and Fine Jewellery boutiques.
05 | Discover a different side of Chinese opera in Operatic Identities
We’ve all had some exposure to the art of Chinese opera (however minimal), but a new immersive exhibition in Singapore promises to take you beyond the face paint and into a world where audiences get to discover a different side of this cultural art form. In an hour-long performance, Operatic Identities aims to provide a sensorial journey through the world of Chinese opera through performance and interactive art installations. Even the food and drinks aim to transport you into another realm, as you sample a selection of Michelin-starred dishes and taste four original baijiu cocktails.
From 9 to 10 November, visit eventbrite.com for more information.
