I’ve been covering the luxury beat for a few years now and, while my focus is largely on timepieces, I do keep abreast of other luxe categories. That’s why, one Friday evening last month, I found myself at the opening of the Duchess of Luxury Manila, a small boutique that specializes in the care, restoration, […]

Retro Cons Hit the Shelves

The year 1984 is remembered for many things: the debut of the first Apple Macintosh, watching Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in cinemas, and rocking out to Van Halen’s Jump all summer long.

Converse Counters Climate with Shield Canvas
