The Agenda: Show Off Your Gains With Versace’s Summer Capsule, Get Inspired At Audemars Piguet’s New Museum, And Other Things You Need To Know

01 | Audemars Piguet opens its stunning new museum to the world 

Exceptional timepieces are often said to be works of art — and with the amount of meticulous work and creative flair that goes into them, why wouldn’t they be? Audemars Piguet has just opened its stunning new museum in their home base of Le Brassus, a scenic village in the heart of Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux.

The Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet — which features 300 timepieces alongside commissioned artworks by the manufacturer — comes with a mesmerising all-glass structure that curls into a spiral-shaped pavilion, inspired by the spring in a timepiece movement. The said spiral also flanks the original workshop where Audemars Piguet was born in 1875, making the museum all the more poignant.

02 | Liven up your Sundays with W Singapore’s new brunch feast

One of the biggest things we missed from our time in CB? Sunday brunches. More specifically, Sunday brunches with a hearty, delectable spread — and lots of champagne. Which is why we’re glad to hear that W Singapore has just launched its Sunday Sharing Feast, which begins this weekend.

On the menu: grilled lobster tails with truffle sabayon, grass-fed porterhouse steaks, duck-fat roasted potatoes, and all the dark chocolate soufflés you can eat — all set against the lush, calming backdrop of the W. You know where we’ll be this Sunday.

03 | Tod’s Capri Lifestyle collection will bring the sun, sand, and sea to you

The glistening blue sea might still be a ways away, but Tod’s latest capsule brings with it a healthy dose of Mediterranean vibes — all in the form of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories for both men and women.

Clad your feet in summery espadrilles or elaborately braided moccasins, and pair them off with Tod’s contemporary take on the classic raffia shopping bag, or a cheery Timeless T Crossbody.

04 | It’s suns out, guns out for Versace’s summer capsule collection 

The good thing about the hot weather is that it’s a chance to show off all the gains you’ve made over the CB period — and what better way to flaunt it than with Versace’s striking new summer capsule?

The hero of the collection is a print that depicts their heritage gold-tone acanthus leaves, fused with subtle anomalies accents — these hand-painted motifs are found on silk bralettes and ethereal pleated skirts for the ladies, and layered jackets and t-shirts for men.

05 | Freshen up with Estée Lauder’s new Mediterranean Honeysuckle Set

Scents are a powerful way to evoke memories, so if you’re looking to relive that trip to the French Riviera — or to inspire a future journey — we suggest the new Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle Set from Estée Lauder. The delicious scent comes with notes of sun-warmed Mandarin Oil and fresh Italian Bergamot, all given an additional layer of complexity with lush notes of Lily of the Valley. 

The set consists of a full-sized fragrance, a travel spray, and two mini-bottles perfect for tucking into a purse. Plus, they come packaged in a gorgeous raffia travel bag that’s begging to be brought along on an adventure.
