- Take Note
Your weekly go-to list of the best things to shop, see and experience.
01 | Ring in 2020 at Zouk’s NYE bash
Given that 2019 is the last year of the 2010s (don’t get us started), herald in the new decade in the company of friends as you dance the night away at Zouk’s Winter Wooski bash. Featuring Dutch DJ duo Bassjackers (ranked at #34 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs of 2019) as well as resident music men Jeremy Boon and Hong, be treated to a lush soundscape of hypnotic beats that’ll get your BPM up. Order up a round (or several rounds) of drinks, let your hair down and kick-off 2020 on the right note.
Tickets are priced at $60, and can be bought online or at the door (subject to club capacity).
02 | Peggy Gou teams up with YOOX
Consider your New Year’s Eve countdown outfit sorted. Full-time DJ and It-girl Peggy Gou is teaming up with YOOX to create a line of super-chic pyjamas. As sleepwear continue to blur the lines and evolve into an effortless uniform for the ultra-hip, Peggy’s collection fits right into the formula of being pieces that can be worn from the bedroom right onto the dancefloor.

03 | Get refreshed with Clarins x Soledad
Before the clock strikes midnight and we enter a new decade, make sure your mien is always kept on point with Clarin’s Fix Make-Up. Featuring a creative update from French illustrator Soledad, this setting spray holds your make up in place, even as you’re dancing the night away. Plus, aloe vera, allantoin, rose water and grapefruit extract all work together to keep your skin moisturised and soothed.
Available at all Clarins counters.
04 | Chaumet introduces their Jeux de Liens Harmony medallions
Layering your necklaces isn’t a new trend, but it’s certainly enjoying its time in the sun again as fashion goes back to the practice throwing on several jewellery pieces at once. Chaumet’s Jeux de Liens Harmony medallions are perfect for nailing this trend because they all feature sleek and minimalist designs that feel modern and versatile. Colour enthusiasts will love the pearlescent surface of the mother-of-pearl finish or the bright red medallion. And for that extra glitz: a pendant set with brilliant-cut diamonds. String a few of them around your neck, and toggle their lengths with the adjustable chains.
Available at all Chaumet boutiques.
05 | Get a sporty update from Louis Vuitton’s 2054 line
Performance gear, but make it fashion. Meet Virgil Abloh’s new line: Louis Vuitton 2054. Taking its name from a mixing 2020 with 1854 — the founding year of the maison — Abloh’s designs reference heritage icons mixed with a futuristic update. The key focus here is transformability, seen best in a parka coat that can be turned into two jackets when you separate the inner and outer shells. Meanwhile, the Sleepall is a riff off the signature Keepall bag, except that it can also be unfurled into a sleeping bag. Even the recognisable LV monogram gets a Blade Runner-inspired redo that features infrared-looking rainbow colours and stripes debossed to resemble the motif.
Available at all Louis Vuitton boutiques.
06 | Cleanse your home with Cul de Sac’s natural Hiba wood products
As we round off the decade and prep for a new one, make some time to detox your home — after all, there’s no better time than now. But you don’t need to overhaul your home. Pick up one of Cul de Sac’s all-natural wood products, made of Aomori Hiba wood: they’re said to have natural ingredients that grant it anti-bacterial and deodorising functions. Plus, these aromatic gems will make you feel like you’re immersed in nature wherever you might be.
Available at Atomi Singapore.
07 | Pay Santa a visit at the Crib Market at Trehaus
Crib, the social enterprise to empower women entrepreneurs, is holding a festive Christmas market at the magical Trehaus space this weekend, just in case you need to do a little last-minute shopping. Expect over 20 twinkling booths filled with everything from fashion and acessories to home decor and lifestyle products.
In case you need to keep your kids occupied while you shop, the members-only Trehaus playground will be opening its doors to the public for just $20 per child. And if they’ve been especially good that day, why not say hello to Santa? He’ll also be visiting to hear out any last-minute Christmas wishes.
Trehaus is located at 109 North Bridge Road, #07-21 to 33.
21st December 2019, from 12.30pm to 7pm. Santa will visit from 2pm to 5pm.
