Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon limited edition
This week’s highlighted timepiece that is totally out of this world is the very limited Geo.Graham Orrery Tourbillon, available in only eight units worldwide. A collection that pays tribute to the long-standing tradition of prodigious British craftsmanship, presenting only the highest level of innovation and refinement, the Orrery Tourbillon holds a mechanical solar system model with a 100-year calendar, and a year counter on the caseback with planet correction indicators, underneath the blue lacquered dial with three scales for the hours and minutes, the Gregorian calendar, and the zodiac stars – shadowing the footsteps of late 17th century watchmaking to explore the brand’s origins in transforming science into art.
NikeLab.com launches in Southeast Asia and NikeLab Nike A.A.E 1.0 collection
If the recently launched NikeLab space in Dover Street Market Singapore doesn’t make you quite so happy, (probably because we’d still have to travel down to Singapore), perhaps you’d be excited to know that NikeLab.com will now serve selected destinations in the Southeast Asia region – and yes, Malaysia is one of them.
The launch of NikeLab.com earlier this month coincided with the highly-anticipated NikeLab Nike Advanced Apparel Exploration (A.A.E) 1.0 collection, a design-oriented capsule that gives a glimpse into the future data informed design of Nike. The nine-piece collection is anchored by the NikeLab Nike A.A.E 1.0 T-shirt, an innovation that employs computational design to merge a series of body maps and form a motion-led knit pattern, alongside other utilitarian, all-day requirements of today’s active urban individuals.

GQ Magazine has recently revealed the winners of their annual Coolest Menswear Designers on the Planet, in collaboration with Gap. This year, another three young designers have been given the spotlight to put together their respective capsule series for Gap, filled with the season’s trendiest pieces without the designer prices.
Already available at selected Gap stores overseas, and online, the GQ x Gap 2017 Coolest Menswear Designers on the Planet collection features Kinfolk with its undeterred New York spirit depicted upon distinctive outerwear pieces; United Arrows that mixes the Japanese culture with the all-American dream of jackets made with traditional Japanese stitching technique called sashiko, and repaired worn or torn workwear; and Ami with its Parisian Ami de Coeur (‘friend of hearts’) signature upon technical outerwear, tailored denim and casual sweaters.
