The Agenda: Net-A-Porter’s Star-studded IWD Collection, Dior’s New D-Lite Bag, And Other Things You Need To Know

01 | Get the perfect no-makeup look with Estée Lauder’s new brow enhancer

Want to look like you #wokeuplikethis? Estée Lauder’s Featherlight Brow Enhancer is all you’ll need. Inside each convenient pen is a weightless, buildable ink that builds in intensity and depth to great any brow look. It comes in five shades that include blonde, dark brunette, and black — and since it looks so natural, you can even switch up the shades (going lighter or darker) to create your desired effect.

The finely tapered brush allows you to draw precise, feather-like strokes that look like real brow hair — and best of all, it stays put once it’s on with its sweat-and-humidity proof formula.

02 | Net-A-Porter celebrates International Women’s Day with an exclusive new drop

The only thing more satisfying than a well-designed collection is one that’s going for a good cause. Net-A-Porter’s latest launch checks both those boxes: for this year’s International Women’s Day, 20 iconic brands and female designers — including Stella McCartney, Charlotte Tilbury, Gabriela Hearst and Jimmy Choo — have created a special t-shirt each for the occasion. All proceeds will go to Women for Women International, which helps women living in war-torn countries rebuild their lives. 

The campaign has even found itself some celeb fans as well: peep Nicole Kidman and Camila Cabello in their tees. 

Check out the collection on Net-A-Porter here.

03 | An exclusive International Women’s Day dinner and new summer menus at Capella Singapore

International Women’s Day is fast upon us, bringing with it a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women, and to open dialogue on what needs to be done next. Capella’s intimate Chef’s Table has planned a homely, one-night-only dinner curated by chef Carol Yu and her team. 

Meanwhile, Cassia serves up some sophisticated Cantonese cuisine inspired by the new season. Expect to see fresh seafood (the lobster roll with mango and cheese might be on the dim sum menu, but nobody’s stopping you from getting two baskets), nourishing double-boiled broths, and refreshing fruit-infusions.

04 | Urwerk releases a limited-edition run of the UR-111C

As if the UR-111C wasn’t enough of a head-turner already, independent Swiss watchmaker Urwerk has launched a limited edition run of the model in a striking Two-Tone (TT) colourway.

The UR-111C TT is, like the original UR-111C launched in 2018, part of Urwerk’s “Special Projects” segment that deviates from the wandering-hour time displays the brand is so known for. It also bears the original’s three mechanical innovations — the retrograde linear minute display on the bottom edge of the watch, the seconds display at 12 o’clock magnified by innovative lensing technology, and the rotating bar crown in the centre of the watch — which are part of what makes the watch so appealing to collectors.

The UR-111C TT is a vision in black PVD and brushed steel, and with only 25 pieces available, it is one horological wonder that’ll be the talk of the town.

05 | The new Dior D-Lite is the perfect addition to your everyday wardrobe

Everyone loves Dior’s classic Lady bag — and there’s lots more to love with the new D-Lite version, freshly reinvented for the maison’s Spring-Summer 2020 ready-to-wear collection. Made of handsome architectural lines and a dynamic 3D embroidery that’s based on Dior’s signature Cannage motif, the Dior D-Lite makes for the perfect accompaniment to any daily look. Top it all off with some gold hardwear for a bit of extra edge.

It comes in a variety of chic shades that include jet black and stone grey — though our favourite has to be the coquettish Bois de Rose, which comes in the perfect shade of blush pink.

06 | Chloé launches new products for its ‘Girls Forward’ campaign with Unicef

Last year, French brand Chloé announced a new partnership with Unicef. The campaign aims to provide 6.5 million girls with skills for employability, personal empowerment, and education: and today they’ve launched a set of products whose proceeds go directly to the organisation. The collection includes two organic cotton jersey shirts in two colour ways that features a graphic of two hands clasped in a gesture of togetherness, as well as a chic woven bracelet and delicate necklace. 

They go on sale today on Chloé’s online store and in the brand’s boutiques in France, Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
