Breitling celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Patrouille Suisse by dedicating to the team an exclusive version of the Chronomat, complete with a personalised dial and engraved caseback.

Issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, this authentic aviation chronograph once again reflects the special ties between the Swiss brand and the world’s elite pilots.



Local brand hansel turns out its Autumn/Winter 2014 “Fairy Lights” collection. The fabric print design features intermingling fairy lights digitally printed onto polyester twill.

The print finds its way onto a range of pretty, versatile dresses that transition the wearer easily from day to night.

Available at hansel’s store in Mandarin Gallery.



Puma introduces the second instalment of its Wilderness Pack. Designed for rough terrain and trekking, the “Blaze of Glory” range features a sandwich mesh base layer for breathability in humid conditions, a secondary suede layer to act as a carpet and a tough rubberised waterproof leather upper. Perfect for roughing it out.
