Given the current health crisis raging across the world, it was only a matter of time before the music industry began to feel the effects of the outbreak. The majority of summer’s hotly-anticipated festivals have been cancelled or postponed (heck, even the Olympics got deferred!), and many artists have been forced to do the same with tour dates. That’s one of the reasons why this month’s issue is dedicated to music – if die-hards can’t make it to the show, then L’Officiel Singapore will bring the show straight to their homes (or offices, which really, now means the same).
“Often called Singapore’s electronic music wunderkind, there is no one better to front our One Voice issue than Jasmine Sokko. True to her signature style, the chart-topping artist graces our pages in all-black looks from Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection, exuding pure charisma and an ineffable sense of cool,” says Ian Lee, Editor-in-Chief of L’Officiel Singapore. “She also gets candid about her struggles with atichyphobia, and her plans to release new music this year – in both Mandarin and English, no less.”
In what is sure to be sweet to the ears (and eyes) of melomaniacs, the April edition brims with sonic (and style) sensations. Up-and-coming local singer Hashy Yusof-Than gets the groove going in Salvatore Ferragamo, Travis Scott rocks the much-talked-about Air Dior kicks, and Pharrell Williams finds harmony with Richard Mille, while Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Lizzo, and Héloïse Letissier provide the soundtrack to this month’s shopping story.

Not to forget the biggest and boldest of Spring/Summer 2020 fashion in the pages of STYLE and MODE, which hit all the high notes in mesmerising spreads like Let The Good Times Roll, Short Story, and La Belle Époque, courtesy of Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Bottega Veneta, among others. More pitch-perfect offerings can be found in BEAUTY, BIJOUX, and LIVING, including but not limited to the new Tiffany T1 collection, the collaboration between Erdem and de Gournay, and the top beauty picks of the season.
