01 | Chanel’s inimitable J12 celebrates its 20th anniversary with a stunning commemorative model

Since its inception at the turn of the millenium, Chanel’s J12 watch has been redefining the standard of feminine watchmaking over the last two decades. And though the J12 celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, it hardly shows its age. 

To commemorate the occasion, Chanel has released the stunning J12·20, which borrows twenty symbols and references from the Maison’s own storied history — such as the 2.55 bag, a camellia, a bottle of N°5 perfume and even a tweed jacket — and incorporates them into a gorgeous rhodium-plated body. The J12·20 is limited to exactly 2020 pieces, while the numbered Haute Horlogerie enamelled version is limited to 5 pieces.

02 | Illuminate your complexion with Chantecaille’s new Radiance Elixir 

Everyone’s heard about of glass skin trend — but how about crystal skin? Grant your complexion that ethereal, pearlescent glow with the new Radiance Elixir from Chantecaille. 

Ingredients like tomato-derived colourless carotenoids help reduce the appearance of skin redness in the daylight, while crystal peptides promote the skin’s natural exfoliation processes and production of ceramics to increase clarity and moisture. To top it all off, the Elixir is made of 98 percent natural ingredients, and is free of phthalates, sulphates, and other nasty additives.

03 | Kendall Jenner heads Burberry’s new TB Summer Monogram collection 

Summer is most certainly here, which makes it time to break out the bold prints and funky colours. Burberry seems to have gotten the memo too, as its TB Summer Monogram collection proves.

It puts a fresh spin on the interlocking TB initials, which appear blown up and in a colour palette of dark beige, azure blue, and orange accents, all on an assortment of breezy, lightweight pieces. Kendall Jenner stars in the collection’s campaign video, which is set in a dreamlike CGI world where skateparks and swimming pools reign supreme.

04 | Create a luscious home spa experience with CapitaLand Malls’ new digital store

We’re glad to be back out in public after two months, but given the crowds of people thinking the same, we might just postpone our next mall crawl. Which makes the launch of eCapitalMall a timely one  

Our top picks from their expansive catalogue? We’d start with some essential oils and scents from Mt. Sapola, which pair nicely with Lush’s delightful array of bathbombs and other sudsy offerings. New accoutrements from the Kondo-approved Muji are always welcome. As for the finishing touch, pick up one of Spa Esprit’s famous Two Lips Blackout Masks for yourself, or someone special. The rest of the night is up to you.
