The definition of luxury in today’s world is an ongoing debate that continuously evolves over the years. Some go for price, while others focus factors such as craftsmanship, exclusivity and quality.
Desirability is another consideration, but at the end of the day, you just want pieces that express that little something more. Like these ten curated gifts just for the boys.
01 – Bottega Veneta Large Cabat, SGD14,470
The ‘king’ of all Bottega Veneta bags, the Large Cabat is for the individual who loves a classic through and through. Made of 100 percent lambskin, the Cabat requires a special intreccio craftsmanship to create its signature interwoven look.
Complete with a bonded lambskin base and a detachable interior zip pocket, the Large Cabat is perfect for weekend getaways. Mostly thanks to its massive 51 cm by 45 cm dimensions, of course. BOTTEGA VENETA
02 – Boucheron Quatre Black Edition Small Ring, SGD7050
Unsurprisingly, Boucheron’s Quatre Black Edition is beloved by many men. Especially when it comes in a discreet combination of black PVD and white gold in a variety of finishes.
The grosgrain design integrates beautifully with the white gold band, black PVD Clou de Paris and single godron. In other words, combining Boucheron’s best motifs in one single ring. BOUCHERON
03 – Cartier Love Brushed Bracelet, SGD11,300
Instead of the shiny, polished gold you’re all too familiar with, Cartier gives it a new brushed texture (the latest update for the Love bracelet). The minimalist look is perfect for those who love (excuse the pun) the oval bracelet, but want a less shiny alternative that feels no less luxurious. CARTIER
04 – Goyard Vendôme Jewellery Case, POA
Goyard’s selection of small boxes and trunks make for the perfect display at home. Some of them even come with well-compartmentalised interiors, such as the Vendôme Jewellery Case.
You can use it to house jewellery and trinkets within designated slots, while an extra yellow tray helps to keep everything in place. All within a Goyardine canvas trunk measuring 25 cm by 15.5 cm. GOYARD
05 – Hermès H08 La Matière Du Temps Watch, SGD23,400
The 42 MM H08 in rose gold and titanium with black DLC coating is truly an elevated timepiece from Hermès. Complete with satin-brushed ceramic bezel, mirror-polished chamfers and an anti-glare sapphire crystal, you can safely dress it up or down. The H08 La Matière Du Temps Watch is powered by the H1837 manufacture movement with a 50-hour power reserve. HERMÈS
06 – Loro Piana Leather-Trimmed Ribbed Cashmere Scarf, GBP468 via MRPORTER
Loro Piana earned its status as the go-to brand for cashmere scarves with good reason. Its exquisite cashmere from baby goats carry a soft and luscious texture, keeping you warm and fuzzy all day long.
This navy ribbed cashmere scarf also features leather trimmings, complete with a small LP logo. It signals a new shift for the increasingly popular brand as it steers away from quiet luxury with rising demand. LORO PIANA
07 – Louis Vuitton Rolling Trunk, SGD12,800
It’s not the Horizon nor the Pégase, but the new Rolling Trunk from Louis Vuitton. Redefining the brand’s trunk-making heritage with a new contemporary edge, the the 55 cm by 39 cm model comes with reinforced corners, wooden slats at the back and sleek hardware, evident in the wheels and elongated handle. Aside from Monogram Eclipse, the Rolling Trunk is also available in Monogram Canvas with gold-tone hardware. LOUIS VUITTON
08 – Rimowa One Bottle Case, SGD2500
Always wanted to carry your Dom Pérignon in style? Rimowa designs the perfect case that does the trick. The anodised grooved aluminium case opens to reveal a foam-cushioned interior for holding champagne or wine bottles. This inventive system helps to wedge the bottle nicely in place while keeping it insulated and cool for hours. Ready to be enjoyed when it arrives at your destination. RIMOWA
09 – Saint Laurent UWL Wood Effect Surfboard, SGD10,630
More a decorative piece than something to surf on, this surfboard features the SAINT LAURENT signature emblazoned in the middle. The 172 cm by 82 cm wood-effect board is made in collaboration with UWL. It is also part of the exclusive Saint Laurent Rive Droite collection which now offers shipping to Singapore. SAINT LAURENT
