    Le Pliage by Longchamp

    The timeless foldable bag.

    It was my mother who first introduced me to this bag. I vaguely remember it was one day in my high school years when she and her sisters joyfully tried on the Le Pliage bags, and were utterly amused by the creaseless, folded design displayed in store during ou...

    February James

    Learn to unlearn.

    Oil pastels fill the sheets of empty faces. “I'm eager to know people,” she says with a firm tone. I was thinking if it’s something that yearns to be done, there must be an imminent motivation behind it. But soon I found out, it was just me who has been thinki...

    The Unspoken Testimony

    Abe Keizoh from Tsuchiya Kaban

    Strapped against his neck, his denim apron rested. The leather snippet glided through the kawaboucho they wrapped. Familiarized with their cracks, he composed them back to back. Compressed to stick then sewn to set, all that was marked down on his apron, he sa...

    Postcards for Ants by Lorraine Loots

    An ongoing miniature painting project.

    I’ve seen more than my fair share of miniature art, but the detail and skill required to make tiny sculptures, paintings or drawings never ceases to amaze me. Recently, I came across “Postcards for Ants,” an ongoing project by Cape Town artist, Lorraine Loots,...

    EVO the Urban Bike

    The mix and match daily bike.

    I used to live on an outlying island in Hong Kong, and whilst probably 90% of the people here only ride on bikes during weekends as an outdoor activity, I was stuck, willingly or not, with my bike as my daily mobility device to and from home.

    Christoph Niemann’s Rainy Day

    The New Yorker’s first animated cover.

    Like many Harry Potter fans out there, I’ve become somewhat obsessed with the possibility of an animated, Daily Prophet-style newspaper in which photographs move and perhaps even include audio clips. Unfortunately, the technology required for animated photos i...

    The all new Page One

    I love therefore I am.

    When I stepped in, the space was still unfinished, but it was clear that Page One aims to create an atmosphere which can isolate itself from the busy shopping centre it was situated in. Submerged within a shadow of green, the in-store escalator guided us up to...

    Hatter Nick Fouquet

    The psychedelic adventurer.

    Most accessories were first created as secondary components to an outfit. Since then they have branched off into different designs for the widened acceptance of extravagancy in accordance to daily fashion. But hats have started off being more than that. As ear...

    Surrealistic Photography by Hossein Zare

    The Iranian photographer’s minimal and melancholic images.

    I was exposed quite early on to the work of Salvador Dalí, so it’s not surprising that I’ve always had a soft spot for dreamy, surrealistic images. Recently, I came across the work of Hossein Zare, a self-taught Iranian photographer and artist whose portfolio ...

    A Sense of Wabi-Sabi

    The dried flowers peeking through the brass tubes extend outward with their bare branches, as if they are momentarily recovering into consciousness just before their death. Within such a snippy brief moment, I actually found a sense of Wabi-sabi – something ab...

    Zen Gardens by Bruno Suet

    The French photographer’s tranquil spaces.

    The idea that nature can be “designed” to evoke a certain feeling or atmosphere is a fascinating one. It’s a thought that has conceivably resulted in some of the most beautiful gardens in existence and, on a smaller scale, traditional art forms like ikebana or...
