“Rei Kawakubo did the wardrobe for the Vienna State Opera’s recent staging of Orlando and created some of her most breathtaking works ever. Her Elizabethaninspired S/S ’20 collection is meant to be a precursor to the production, making owning a piece from it the next closest thing to being a part of that once-in-alifetime cultural experience.”

2. Heel Knots leather crossbody bag, $1,650, Loewe

“I’m a sucker for anything Loewe and its Heel bag has always been a personal favourite with its perfect geometric shape. Now the brand’s added a quirky trim of leather knots done by hand along its base and I love it even more.”

KENG YANG SHUEN, fashion writer 

3. Coach 1941 cotton tank top, $195, Coach

“How to make a cheesy ’80s-style tank top cool? Splash on Richard Bernstein’s print of an ’80s heart-throb (and, no, I did not know Rob Lowe before this).”

HISYAM A RAHMAN, graphic designer 

4. Leather mules, price unavailable, Balenciaga

“For when I need a step up from basic black mules that still check the box for elegant pragmatism.”


5. Camp Sarika by Amangiri, from US$3,500 (S$4,760) a night

“My idea of luxury: to be surrounded by peace and quiet. Opening in April, this estate of 10 tented pavilions appears to rise out of Utah’s rocky landscape – just the kind of solitude I crave.”

IMRAN JALAL, fashion editor
