In this issue
The new normal is looking to be a lot more positive than anyone ever imagined. The luxury houses are already powering ahead with major product launches, while the society scene is also heating up with more get-togethers, staycations and day-outs. At Prestige, we have kick-started some activity of our own. We held our first official function of the year – an intimate lunch and recognition ceremony for our Prestige Awards 2020 recipients: Patron Award winner Mildred Tan, Titan Award winner Chan Soo Khian, as well as Vanguard Award winner Ng Yi Ming. In light of the buzz all around, we debut a fresh face: the 23-year-old Calista Cuaca. This is the first solo magazine cover for the society second-gen fashion-beauty influencer and entrepreneur, who speaks to us about stepping out of her mother Jamie Chua’s shadow and coming into her own. This issue, we also put the focus on savoir faire. First up, three interesting entrepreneurs and artisans in their own right tell us how they are shaking up traditional trades and passions with creativity and a new direction. Ikebana, Chinese tea and bird’s nest – you get the idea. Diving further into the subject of know-how, good taste and ingenious artistry, we present this latest season’s collections of designer wear, handbags, jewels, watches and even beauty products. The reads are aplenty, from a feature on Gucci’s reinvention of its iconic bags, to Chaumet’s new Joséphine collection that showcases the maison’s emblematic pear shape, to Cartier’s commitment to its illustrious watchmaking heritage through its new Vintage collection. In our lifestyle section are more stories spotlighting the talent and vision of award-winning Singaporean creatives, namely designer Gabriel Tan and architect Yip Yuen Hong. And inducting you into a hotter and perhaps slightly more sociable season is also a useful primer on champagnes.
Calista Cuaca - A Star Is Born
Calista Cuaca makes her cover debut as a rising social media star, marking her arrival as a fashion It girl. She tells Nafeesa Saini how she is coming into her own as the second-generation face of high society in her first major interview.
Something Old, Something New
Meet the champions of reinvention who are putting traditional trades and skills in a new light. Annabel Tan finds out how they are modernising the fields of Chinese tea, bird’s nest and ikebana.
Creative director Alessandro Michele pays tribute to four of the heritage fashion house’s cherished bag icons – Dionysus, GG Marmont, Gucci Horsebit 1955 and Jackie 1961 – with the Gucci Beloved collection. Elevated in precious skins, these expressions distinguished with historic links evolve with a modern spirit in every new collection.
It's A Kind Of Magic
An unexpected palette of rare gemstones celebrates the enchanting beauty of the natural world in Tiffany & Co.’s 2021 Blue Book Collection. Allyson Klass discovers the exceptional pedigree of these coloured stones in this exclusive interview.
Own A Piece Of History
While highly complicated and limited-edition watches are indeed valuable, what is equally priceless are pieces nearly lost to the past. The recently launched Cartier Vintage collection revives some of the brand’s most treasured creations – in all their original glory. Yanni Tan receives a quick history lesson from a preview at Cartier ION Orchard’s private salon.
If These Walls Could Talk
Since taking over the reins at MOCA Bangkok, managing director KANACHAI “KIT” BENCHARONGKUL has been pushing the museum in ever more diverse directions, as Bruce Scott discovers during an exclusive guided tour.
Private outdoor space, white-glove service, flexible floor plans and distinctive architecture are the hallmarks of luxury residential developments opening in 2021, writes VL Hendrickson.
The Human Touch
The Singapore- and Portugal-based designer Gabriel Tan talks to Jing Zhang about the revival of handmade items, craft and clarity, and how cultural exchange sparks inspiration.
