American leather goods house Coach’s Trail Bag ($650), based on an archival design, is a clever take on this that doesn’t take itself too seriously – cue its cute owl motif that’ll put a smile on your face.

TAG HEUER #02-45 & #03-34

Mention auto racing and one of the first watches that comes to mind would be the Swiss stalwart’s Carrera, which celebrates its 55th anniversary this year. Its latest iteration is the Carrera Calibre 16, and it’s no surprise that it continues its sporty heritage in fine form. Available in both leather and steel wristbands, it’s a handsome chronograph for everyday wear, and will definitely score major points with both you and your man.

The American powerhouse gets all fun and romantic this season with accessories adorned with celestial symbols.

These days the most forward- thinking brands are big on pieces that can be worn by both genders, and this approach is exemplified by the Hong Kong-based label’s Yo Yo collection. Spanning necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings, the line comes in cool yet neutral colours like silver and black. Likewise, modern materials (18K white gold, black chalcedony and white ceramic) and sleek, architectural lines will ensure that the pieces appeal to a wide audience.

MAUBOUSSIN #02-14/15 

This French fine jewellery house may date back to the 19th century, but its designs are certainly contemporary. Take for instance the Kiff and Kiss collection, a series of rings with of multiple criss-cross bands, crowned with Mauboussin’s signature four-point star. On their own, each piece is striking with its architectural design. When stacked – and they’re designed to do so – the effect is amplified and sure to be a conversation-starter at any party.

One highlight at this multi-label watch destination this season is the German label Meistersinger. Founded 17 years ago, it’s won a slew of design awards for its single-hand timepieces that omit the second and minute hands, resulting in a clean, minimalist dial. This year, look out for its Singapore City Edition 2018 ($3,280 and limited to 10 pieces) with a glass print of our city’s skyline.
