Organised by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre, the key event is The Good Hub, which takes place on 5th December.

02 | Alexander McQueen Pre-Spring 2020
Just because the weather outside is gloomy, doesn’t mean that your clothes should reflect the dreary year-end blues. Give your closet a much-needed lift with Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Spring 2020 collection. Vibrant layers of fuchsia and scarlet provide a feminine shot of colour that juxtaposes against the militant tailoring Sarah Burton is often known for. An air of romance is added thanks to the unusual floral prints, which are inspired by endangered and extinct species. We also recommend picking up one of the fabulously embellished dresses for all of those after-dark parties.
Available at all Alexander McQueen boutiques.
03 | Van Cleef & Arpels reinterprets the Ludo bracelet
What’s the party month without a little party sparkle? Van Cleef & Arpels are putting the Ludo bracelet back into the spotlight, just in time for your festive season prep. Shaped to look like a belt, the flexible mesh strap fluidly drapes around your wrist to create a stunningly beautiful piece that also sits comfortably on the wrist. With four new versions of the bracelet available, you’ll find a new wrist-topper that will set off your holiday season in plenty of shine.
Available at all Van Cleef & Arpels boutiques.
04 | Etro Holiday Capsule Collection
For the first time, the Italian brand is launching a holiday capsule collection, designed to encapsulate the joys of the season. Featuring two wool and cashmere sweaters in red or navy, a winter hat and a scarf, these festive-ready pieces will make perfect travel companions for the year-end trips with your family. All that’s missing is a crackling fireplace and good company.
Available at etro.com.
05 | Treat your scalp properly with Sisley’s help
Hair is often the centre of attention, but it’s time to pay more attention to the health of your scalp. To aid you in the TLC process, look to Sisley and their Hair Rituel system — a revolutionary combination of technology and product to get your locks looking their luscious best. Using the new Analyzer wand available at Sisley counters, Sisley’s specialists get a better and closer view of your follicles and scalp.

Available at the Sisley Counter, Robinsons Raffles City.
06 | Pick up festive treats and eats this weekend The Atelier & Co’s Christmas market
Christmas shopping can sometimes be like visiting the dentist: Painful, but necessary. We’d enjoy it a lot more if just about everything was condensed into one place.

Brands like Janice Wong, Skin Inc., Bynd Artisan, Le Petit Society, Carrie K., Da Paolo come together with their latest offerings for the festive season — and of course, you’ll be able to pick up a gorgeous array of flowers from The Floral Atelier to spruce up your home while you’re there.
