Where rock and pop meet
For autumn-winter, it's going to be all about high energy for Diesel. Mixing rock, denim, military and sport themes, artistic director Nicola Formichetti says his inspiration was a concert or a sports event where people gather in a stadium to have fun. "Rock style is interpreted in a pop way and the clothes are almost like a uniform," he says in a statement. Call 04-3398615.
McQueen goes globetrotting
Alexander McQueen has partnered with fellow British handmade luggage expert Globe-Trotter to launch two cases - a 13" mini utility case and a 21" trolley case. Available in limited quantities, the fashion label has introduced its signature touches, such as silver studs, riveting and skull padlocks. The cases are also lined using the signature ivory and black skull print. Call 04-3398760.
Keeping it sharp
Crisp lines and clean shapes dominate menswear for Ted Baker for the new season. While sports luxe continues to be a significant influencer, there are interesting textures in what is a fun collection of looks: think cuffed trousers, bomber-style jackets and patch-pocket blazers. Call 04-4340623.
One for the heirloom
The Pocket Plein Cuir watch by Hermes goes back to the French house's history of leather and watchmaking skills. Using saddle-making techniques, the 'jacket' has been put through the brand's thorough handmade, hand-stitched process and is available in burgundy, elegant grey and sapphire blue. The watch, also crafted by Hermes, comes in a white gold case. It's available for order. Call 04-4575660.
Ahead of the fashion game
Puma's Ignite EvoKnit fuses running as well as streetwear vibes that can take you from the gym to the mall with just one look. Made with all the goodness of a running shoe but for the fashion conscious, the shoe's unique design is made for you to own the block. It arrives in stores later this month. Call 04-4340204.
