Simply pair with a favourite black dress or t-shirt and jeans to add oomph. Striking and celebratory, African style is back on the catwalk this season, as raw and beautiful as ever

Queen of the Curve

The late visionary architect Zaha Hadid’s striking jewellery collection for Georg Jensen was one of her final projects and is reflective of the life and style with which she imbued her work. Structural and sweeping, majestic yet embracing, the pieces embody the characteristics that lent her the enduring moniker Queen of the Curve.

Chasing rainbows

Colours collided on the spring/summer catwalks, and not least in the maximalist make-up worn by models. Why settle on soft, shadowy eyes and nude lips when you can leave minimalism behind and make multi-coloured fantasies come true?

Under your own steam

This gorgeous new tote from Louis Vuittonʼs cruise 2016 collection has had stylistas in a swoon. Inspired by steamer luggage from the brandʼs archives, the City Steamer is sleek and sophisticated.

Look lively and layer.

"Nature always wears the colours of the spirit” Ralph Waldo Emerson

On Orange County's picturesque Laguna Beach in California, where blue skies meet bluer oceans and golden sand soaks up a yellow sun, the colours of nature are at their finest for showing off the most stylish spring selections.

A New Facet

Miracles of nature, for every 10,000 colourless diamonds discovered only one natural coloured diamond will be found. So forget the crystalline purity of the traditional gem: coloured diamonds are the true prize.

The bold and the beautiful

The season’s fashions are not for the faint hearted as designers target the confident, independent woman with a dress sense all of her own. Spring style goes bright for the individual, bold for the brave, and mixes and matches for standout originality.

Gift aid

In a world fuelled by social media and celebrity culture, a gift is no longer simply to be cherished by the recipient – it is seen online by everyone they know, and gift giving today has become a public declaration of friendship and love.

Tomas Maier

There are two distinct approaches to luxury fashion ñ the quiet one and the loud one. The latter is what weíve seen most of over the past 15 years: a brand strategy based on iconic seasonal trends and instantly identifiable designer ware that has not only been the path to booming sales figures but has also coloured the course of fashion for most of this century. The former is entirely different. Enter Tomas Maier.

“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless”

Caviar, truffles, saffron, abalone, bird’s nest, wagyu beef. These highly prized – and highly priced – ingredients entice and intoxicate with seductive scents and intriguing flavours. And they are so much in demand that some are worth more than their weight in gold.

Maximalist

After years of simple Scandinavian design and decor, the pendulum is swinging to a more colourful, expressive and individual style. Decoration is experiencing a revival, with signs of a new-found appreciation for materials, personality and even a touch of frivolous fantasy ñ and it is all adding a welcome luxury and warmth to contemporary design.

Modern Minimalism

Think of minimalist design and what might spring to mind are the sterile, white-on-white interiors in glossy magazines. More recently, however, minimalism has evolved into a kinder, gentler form that does not necessarily mean an absence of design or comfort.

The Pace of Taste

Despite the speed of Hong Kong life, sometimes it pays to dawdle not dash, to savour rather than scurry ñ especially when it comes to great food. Preparation and longer cooking times can add layers of flavour and complexity to dishes.

Tile time

Traditional patterns from imperial wares of the Qianlong Emperor’s reign have inspired Lala Curio’s Cloisonné Tile collection. The ancient artform saw metal-wired cloisons filled with vibrant enamels that were fired multiple times and then burnished and gilded in gold outlines. These intricate techniques are applied to home furnishings, lacquer boxes, leather trays and furniture, as well as tiles, each one of which is created by skilled masters who strive to keep their authentic craftsmanship intact and relevant. Join the cloisonné revival.
