As the festive season approaches, Dior reinvents the magic of winter with a range of exceptional pieces. Echoing the Dior cruise 2024 collection dreamed up by Maria Grazia Chiuri, a multitude of butterflies – in shades of gold and white – spread their wings and come to life on the Lady Dior, the Dior Book Tote, the Lady D-Lite and the Panier Chapeau.

In homage to Monsieur Dior's passion for the divinatory arts, they form an enchanting constellation revealing the twelve signs of the zodiac. Like an ode to the fascinating mysteries of astrology, this intricate design also embellishes bags, elegant small leather goods and a silk square.

Irresistible punctuations, the Dior Ballet ballerinas, D-Strike ankle boots and Jolie Dior pumps are enhanced by white resin beads adorned with the “CD” initials, an infinitely refined detail inspired by the emblematic Dior Tribal earrings.

Finishing each outfit with an extra touch of audacity, the jewelry is sublimated with bewitching butterflies, whose delicacy is imbued with beauty. These poetic creatures magnify all Dior universes: the Butterfly Around the World motif – conceived by Pietro Ruffo –, combined with the reinterpretation of toile de Jouy, embellishes several Dior Maison creations, such as crockery, table linen and various objects, as well as candles and notebooks. A vase and a decorative box*, designed in collaboration with the Manufacture des Émaux de Longwy founded in 1798, complete the assortment.

Australian-born South Korean singer and one of eight members of Stray Kids, Felix, was recently spotted wearing a white Louis Vuitton Monogram sleeveless jacket as well as a gold and silver Everyday LV chain necklace. He was performing alongside his band members at the 5Star Dome Tour at Seoul on 21 October. But it didn't take him long enough to show off his toned abs, with fans calling it "sculptured by Heaven."

He is really talented, I love his energy, his unique personality and his audacious sense of style’ says Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections. We'd probably see more of Felix in the latest Louis Vuitton styles soon.

Louis Vuitton was voted as Top Luxury Brand in a poll by Yahoo readers as part of the Yahoo Choice Awards 2023.

We've had the chance to taste three whiskies: the remarkable Bowmore 1982, aged for 31 years, which filled the mouth with maritime notes and a gentle peat smoke flavour; the Bunnahabhain 1969, Aged 43 Years, which narrates a complexity of oak spice, vanilla and a tinge of tropical fruits; and the highly coveted and limited edition Port Ellen 1983 (40 Years), an exceptionally rare collector's item after the discontinuation of the Port Ellen distillery, which is robust with hints of dried fruits, leather and tobacco.

Select limited-edition whiskies from the tasting, including the Port Ellen 1983 are already available for pre-order through The Whisky Store, offering whisky lovers a golden opportunity to add these unique and rare spirits to their collections at exclusive launch prices while stocks last. Bottles will arrive in early December 2023.

In continued collaboration with local NGO partner, Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), Shiseido reaffirms its commitment in making a meaningful difference in the lives of cancer patients and survivors.Through this initiative, Lavender Ring Makeup & Photos With Smiles aims to unite and empower cancer survivors by boosting their confidence and strength through the power of beauty.

The inaugural event last year engaged 35 cancer patients and survivors, and this year, 60 beneficiaries from SCS will undergo a personalised makeup and hairstyling session hosted by certified Shiseido Beauty consultants and hairstylists. The makeover sessions will utilise professional-grade products from Shiseido Life Quality Makeup (SLQM) that are specially designed to address serious skin concerns and improve uneven skin tones and textures, while enhancing their best facial features. Developed by SLQM, the Perfect Cover product range includes a series of skincare products and specialised foundations for a wide range of skin concerns.

The initiative was first established by Shiseido Japan in 2017, involving volunteers from Shiseido, local governments, corporations from other industries, patient groups, and medical institutions who share the same vision of a society in which cancer survivors can live with a smile.
