Herschel Backpacks & Tech Accessories
Named after a small town in Canada, Herschel Supply Co. is based in Vancouver and manufactures backpacks, bags, travel goods and accessories of the finest quality. The ruggedly good-looking backpacks are available in eye-catching primary colours and feature utilitarian pocket details that are great for outdoor activities.

J.Lindeberg Tassel Toff Loafer
When we last spoke of Swedish clothing label J.Lindeberg, we focused on the apparel and missed out on waxing lyrical on the equally covetable shoes. Like its clothes, the brand’s range of footwear is designed to reflect a ‘modern utility’ and updates tradition models with more contemporary shapes. From a classic brogue in elegant brown leather to pebble-soled carshoes in green plaid, the selection may not be large but is definitely well curated. Our favourite is the classically constructed Tassal Toff Loafer in luxurious calf leather. Straddling the line between formal and casual, it is designed for easy wearing and style.
The J.Lindeberg Tassel Toff Loafer is currently on sale and now retails for SGD449 (down from SGD529) at the brand’s flagship boutique located at #02-17, Mandarin Gallery
Rimowa Topas Cabin Multiwheel
Introduced back in the 1950s, the classic Rimowa Topas range is especially suitable for the tropics by protecting against high humidity and remaining unaffected by strong fluctuations in temperature. Made of strong aluminum and magnesium, it is easily one of the lightest and sturdiest luggage in the world and virtually indestructible. The Topas Cabin Multiwheel is the perfect carry-on size that will save dad the hassle of checking in luggage for his business flight. With this good-looker in tow, he will definitely be receiving many covetous glances from his fellow travellers.
The Rimowa Topas Cabin Multiwheel retails for SGD1500 at #02-19, Mandarin Gallery
