The Agenda: Cult Sneaker Brand Axel Arigato Launches in SG, Richard Mille’s New Music Partner, And Other Things You Need To Know

01 | Richard Mille’s new music partner is just as creative as they are

Trust Richard Mille to collaborate with someone truly exceptional. They’ve enlisted French composer Thomas Roussel as their latest music partner, a musician that’s certainly no stranger to spectacular events. His first album was recorded with the famed London Symphony Orchestra in 2017 — barely a year later, he led a group of 80 musicians on the Seine River in front of the Eiffel Tower, a magical performance matched only by this next one in Beijing’s Forbidden City.

And it looks like we won’t have to wait long to see the fruits of the collaboration: Roussel hinted yesterday on his Instagram that he’s already working on his first project with the brand. We’ll be sure to keep an ear out for that.

02 | Hera’s Homme Black series is the perfect skincare regime for the modern man

There’s a misconception that men don’t need — or don’t want — a skincare routine. But healthy,  blemish-free skin is an attractive look on either gender. For a routine that’s both uncomplicated and comprehensive, look for Hera’s Homme line.

Start with the Purifying Cleansing Foam for a refreshing way to prep for shaving, and follow that up with the multi-tasking Black Perfect Fluid, which protects the skin from external irritants, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and controls excess sebum. Top it all off with the Hera Black Eau de Perfume — with its aromatic, woody musk, it makes for the perfect scent for any urbane gentleman.

03 | Swedish sneaker label Axel Arigato launches in Singapore 

You can never have too many fashionable sneakers — which is why we’re especially hyped for the Singapore launch of Swedish streetwear brand Axel Arigato. Their slick Clean 90 sneakers have fast attained a cult-like following, but don’t take our word for it — they count celebs like Bella Hadid, Margot Robbie and Chris Evans as fans.

Axel Arigato’s e-store will have the brand’s entire range, which includes a curated Objects section — think chic bathrobes and tech accessories embroidered with the iconic Bee-eater Bird emblem — and, of course, both men’s and women’s footwear.

05 | Gucci goes green with its Off The Grid collection

Gucci has been making waves lately for its talk about going seasonless and sustainability, so it’s good to see they’re making good on their claims. Enter the Off The Grid collection from Gucci Circular Lines, the house’s sustainable design arm. 

Genderless ready-to-wear pieces, accessories and luggage make up the collection, which is made of recycled and bio-based materials — including the trademarked Econyl, which was made from nylon offcuts and consumer waste like abandoned fishing nets and carpets, now given a new lease of life in the form of a quality thread. The materials aren’t the only thing to note: Modelling Gucci’s new sustainable looks are a coterie of celebs that include Jane Fonda, Lil Nas X and David de Rothschild.
