built to last

LEGACY IS SOMETHING WE OFTEN TALK about at Singapore Tatler. It comes up when we speak to leaders such as Binod Chaudhary, Nepal’s sole billionaire, who shares his life journey with Asia Tatler on page 120. It also arises when we meet the brains behind coveted luxury brands, who talk about how their decades-long heritage continues to shape their collections today. As the publication turns 37 this year, legacy is also particularly relevant to us as we innovate in face of incessant change while keeping true to the values that have allowed us such longevity. This much we know is true: inheriting a legacy puts one in a better position but it also comes with great responsibility. This sentiment is shared by entrepreneur Kishin RK, founder and CEO of RB Capital,…

talking shop

WE LAST MET PROPERTY developer Kishin RK about a year ago, to talk about Quayside at Robertson Quay. Then newly completed, the development’s clever mix of casual dining options, private members’ club 1880 and an InterContinental hotel was about three years in the making. It was also the first large-scale realisation of the entrepreneur’s belief that careful curation and a deep understanding of target consumers are crucial to making a property project successful today. After all, in a world where late-night nosh can be summoned with a tap on a smartphone screen, a physical space needs, more than ever, to make a compelling case that your presence on its premises will yield a special experience. Cut to a year later and Kishin hasn’t stopped thinking about this interplay between the tangibilities of…

race against time

WHILE WATCH AND AUTOMOTIVE collaborations are commonplace, these partnerships often result in technically fascinating innovations. This is the case with the Time Fast D8, a modern mechanical clock inspired by vintage race cars, and looks like one too. The brainchild of Georg Foster, a promising young English designer with dreams of becoming a race car driver, the limited-edition creation is a collaboration between design school, Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne, and high-end clock maker L’Epée 1839. The kinetic sculpture is made up of 289 handcrafted mechanical components, including a “motor” or manual-winding calibre that can last eight days with a single wind. It also boasts the signature design features of race cars from the 1950s such as large spoked wheels, a long engine hood that tapers towards an elongated open radiator grille,…

caped crusaders

THERE IS A SUPERHERO IN ALL OF US, and the Australian and New Zealand Association’s (Anza) SuperBall is just the occasion to don that cape. Presented by the Australian International School, the superhero-themed Annual Anza Black-Tie Charity Ball, which takes place on May 11 at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, is the association’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Guests can look forward to a sumptuous three-course dinner, along with a power-packed entertainment line-up featuring British emcee and vocalist Rob Collins as well as homegrown acts Jive Talkin’ and DJ Malcolm X. And what is a party without tipples? There are three pop-up bars serving up everything from scotch whisky to the world’s first vodka made entirely from cow’s milk. More than just a glamorous party, the proceeds from the evening’s travel auction and…
