editor’s note

It’s a great time to be talking about design in Singapore. That’s an opinion that I share openly whenever someone asks about my thoughts on the future of the country’s design scene. I’m glad to say that this is also a sentiment shared by Yaacob Ibrahim, minister for communications & information.

HERMÉS CABRIOLE CHAIR RANY MORAN “My new home in Sydney is all about opulent minimalism so I turned to brands with the same design style when I was styling it. Among them are several items from Hermès that caught my eye, such as the Cabriole chair, long bench and reception sofa. These give an air of European aristocracy as they blend imperial style with a contemporary touch.” FENDI CASA SOFA (AVAILABLE AT MACSK) SHAREL HO “I love Fendi Casa for its authentic designs of incomparable quality. The pieces are rich in complexity and details. A beige sofa from the brand holds pride of place in my home. It exudes luxurious style without compromising on comfort, is unsullied in workmanship and durable. These same qualities are what I appreciate in my Fendi bags and accessories.” RALPH LAUREN…
