Coco Cruz launches chic PJs
First up, we love the vibrant prints and patterns from Coco Cruz, a new Singapore-based sleepwear label inspired by life in the tropics. The cute sets are ideal for a lazy weekend morning, or lounging on the sofa while indulging in a good book during one of Singapore’s impromptu storms (which, funnily enough, we’ve had lots of lately!). Also, they make great gifts! coco-cruz.com
Embrace Jewellery x SCWO charity drive

Also, funds will also be used for other charitable SCWO initiatives.

Mark your calendars: MaisonZHOU – a label known for its luxurious silky sleepwear – will be popping up at Takashimaya from 1 to 16 May. The boutique will be located on the third floor, opposite the department store’s Lingerie Salon. The label’s spring/summer collection is inspired by morning and evening light, in tones of monochrome silver and cream. Psst … the team is also launching a monogramming embroidery service so you can add that personal touch to your smalls. To celebrate the launch, if you shop at their pop-up you can receive two complimentary monogramming services with purchases over $295.
Mindfully-made jewellery from ALT x ELYX collection
Top of our wish-lists this month? This limited-edition jewellery from the ALT x ELYX collection, which consists of edgy caged-rings, structured cuffs and uber-cool shoulder epaulets all in a luxe rose-gold finish. The collaboration between ALT collection and ABSOLUT ELYX raises awareness of upcycling, and introduces a creative way to transform discarded materials into beautiful pieces of jewellery. Each piece is made with brass material melted down from old bombshells left behind after the Vietnam War. Also, the collection’s striking rose-gold finish is a first for the independent jewellery brand, and represents ABSOLUT ELYX’s authentic distillation method using copper stills that date back to 1921, which gives the vodka a refined, silky texture. Prices from $59 to $400, available at altthecollection.com.
