Weekend Max Mara looks to the equestrian world for its new collection of embroidered pieces entitled “Trophy Day” designed by American artist Richard Saja.



Inspired by the Royal Ascot races, Saja has utilised his masterful embroidery techniques to embellish and elevate silk and cotton toile for the collection that will look great for a day at the races. Each piece is rendered in a unique colourway with embroideries positioned in different places on a thigh-length overcoat of silk organdie, a cotton piquet blouse with voluminous sleeve detailing, cropped cotton trousers with a slight kick-flare, and a cotton poplin shirt. 

Your life on your wrist

Swiss luxury watchmaker Frederique Constant has launched a special edition smartwatch, the 3.0 Hybrid Manufacture, which fuses tech with the best mechanical manufacture-made movement. Distributed in Thailand by C Thong Panich, the watch boasts the FC-750 hybrid calibre to enable the smart functions of the watch, which update the activities of the wearer, including their daily steps, daily calories burnt and sleeping patterns. There’s also an analysis function that tests the accuracy of the watch’s calibre, which results in a graph that is shown on the mobile application.

 

Shiny hair, healthy scalp

Based on the concept that beautiful hair starts with the scalp, Japanese skincare brand Three launches Orderange, a new line of shampoo and conditioner. The daily shampoo routine leaves the hair ravishing and keeps it nourished by restoring the day-to-day scalp and hair damage. In addition to the botanical ingredients that help maintain the hair’s resilience, body, colour and shine, it is formulated with selected plant-based extracts that effectively control the deterioration of the scalp condition to build the foundation for healthy hair. 

 

Dressed to kill

Emporio Armani’s pre-autumn 2018 collection is designed are for today’s fast, connected and always changing world. Sartorial-cut jackets are paired with cotton cargo trousers or jeans, suits are matched with sweatshirts and silk blouses are worn with basketball sneakers. Pure, functional lines are contrasted with stud inserts and kidassia goat fur patches. The typical Armani masculine and feminine contrast is evident in the alternating combination of impeccably cut jackets with flowing trousers and short embroidered dresses.
