As you will probably agree, we’ve taken this month’s theme of Art + Collabs more than just seriously. You’ll be able to tell right from our cover, which features Gucci — a brand that celebrates the very things that we’re dedicating this issue to — and was shot on the brand new Huawei P30 Pro.
“This issue’s pages are filled with the coolest and most exciting tie-ups of Spring/Summer 2019,” says L’Officiel Singapore’s Editor-in-Chief, Ian Lee, “including Versace and Kith’s unexpected capsule collection of over 100 pieces, as well as Loewe and Ibiza boutique Paula’s anticipated third collection, which is also the duo’s biggest one yet.”
Where art is concerned, expect a special savoir-faire-look at Dior Men’s KAWS BFF dolls and the KaleiDiorscopic tie-and-dye take on the Maison’s iconic Lady Dior. As big fans of fashion illustration, we also celebrate the launch of Kenzo Takada’s new eponymous book by getting the founder of Kenzo himself to speak about some 7,800 sketches from his career. Plus, hear from popular Seoul-based illustrator, JaeSuk Kim, about how he spent four days designing one of his most challenging SusuGirls creations ever.
Sometimes, jewellery-making is viewed as an art in itself. And this notion is hard to dispute with some of the stunning and incredibly intricate pieces from Cartier, Richard Mille and Van Cleef & Arpels featured in this month’s issue.
“Right after the knockout 12th anniversary Red Riot bash, L’Officiel Singapore’s April issue keeps the momentum going by bringing our readers the most coveted bags, shoes and jewels of the season – in unapologetic L’Officiel Singapore style,” says Olivier Burlot, CEO and Publisher of Heart Media. “Relive the biggest moments of our red-hot anniversary party in this issue, and also on lofficielsingapore.com.”
