The Next Magnificent
He's new guy at Hermes, asked to lead its beauty studio - the youngest of the brand's metiers that also has the potential to be its widest-reaching. So what does Gregoris Pyrpylis plan to bring to the table of this revered house of good taste? Gordon Ng finds out when the Greek makeup artist visited Singapore last month – his maiden trip since his appointment as creative director of Hermes Beauty.

With its graphic gauge link design that draws from the industrial roots and gritty-meets-glamourous spirit of New York City, the pieces from Tiffany & Co.'s HardWear collection make for the cool girl's ultimate fashion goodies, whether one's dressing up or down. Together with the American luxury jeweller, Female shows how you can pile them on, stack them up and let everyone else eat their hearts out.

Like in the iconic sitcom Friends, our go-to eating spots are also often our favourite social spaces - something that the pandemic has reinforced, what with the regulations on where and how we've been able to gather during the past two years.

Welcome to three of the most creative new players in experiential dining here. Their settings can hardly be called that of a restaurant, and their focus is as much on supporting the arts and the environment as it is on the menu, bringing new meaning to the term "soul food”.
A MOVEABLE FEAST
The pandemic has hit the F&B sector hard. Yet, in the past two years, Singapore has also seen the birth of some of our most spectacular restaurants that drive across the point that we aren't just a global food city, but an excellent one. From eclectic bistros big on personality to a French fine-dining institution housed in a heritage church building, these joints are bold in both concept and taste, suffused with the warmth and thoughtfulness of a good friend no matter the setting. And, of course, their interiors are stunning, making them destinations to see and be seen at, and compel one to get all dressed up - even if it's for a table of one. So now, who's ready to eat?
Gaming - A Space For Imagination, Reinvention And Escapism
