This season, Maje reminisces Le Palace of the 1980s—the golden era of the night club which played host to Grace Jones singing La vie en rose, Prince's first concert in France and more. Fun and whimsical, the collection features many party-ready pieces that will have you set for the holidays, like this Rileta sequin mini wrap dress.
The Rileta sequin mini dress is perfect for a count down party—it's glittery enough to shine through a Zoom party!— Tina Cheng
The leather pyramid bag, on the other hand, is a versatile accessory that can either complement a glamorous outfit or dress up a classic look as a statement piece.
"It'll complete my go-to black suit with a pair of ruby earrings," Tina said.
Available at Maje, 01-26, Raffles City.
The right blush can dramatically improve your complexion, and you'll definitely want to look radiant and glowing this party season. Exclusively designed for the holidays, the Les Chaînes de Chanel Illuminating Blush Powder is embossed with the House's iconic chain motif. Its micro-fine formula dusts seamlessly onto the skin with a satiny finish, imparting a warm radiance that naturally illuminates the skin. The powder can also be dusted on shoulders and the décolleté for a subtle glow under the party lights.

Swarovski's best-selling tennis bracelet is refreshed for the season with the introduction of princess, round, oval and pear Swarovski cuts, adding a touch of whimsy to its classic design. The bracelet is versatile enough to be worn every day for some extra sparkle, or paired with matching earrings to glam up an evening look.
Available at Swarovski, 01-09 to 01-10, Raffles City.
Sandro's fall-winter 2020 collection evokes the nostalgia of college days, mixing up preppy staples like patched blazers and V-neck cable knits with a grown-up wardrobe of classics like tweed blazers, pantsuits and men's shirts. This slouchy checked cardigan is given an unexpected glam factor with sequins that glisten as you move, while the mini bag makes for an understated yet trendy accessory.
I'm always on the lookout for versatile and timeless pieces like this checked cardigan and mini bag.— Tina Cheng

Bamboos are a key motif in Shanghai Tang's fall-winter 2020 collection, Time to Bloom. Created during these unusual times, the bamboo was selected for its resilience, blooming and thriving despite its harsh environment. The motifs are subtly emblazoned on the silk maxi wrap dress, gently shifting under the light with every movement. A shawl collar and rouleau loop buttons along the waist add to its regal charm—perfect for a formal dinner party.
For cooler days, the quilted velvet vest in royal blue can be styled both as a wrap dress or as a gilet over a lighter dress. The bamboo motifs adorn a bright fuchsia stretch silk lining, for a playful and unexpected pop of colour.
Available at Shanghai Tang, 01-27A, Raffles City.
Yves Saint Laurent’s most iconic fragrance comes boldly dressed in a glittering leopard print this holiday season. The cult oriental gourmand infuses the aroma of black coffee with the intoxicating scent of jasmine sambac and orange blossom absolute, with a creamy base of vanilla, patchouli, cedar and cashmere wood—a signature scent for the urban heroine that's hard to miss.
Every Christmas, Clinton picks a scent that he likes as a gift to me, and that scent will be my 'signature' scent for the rest of the year. I keep the bottles on display beside my dresser—looking at them makes me feel loved.— Tina Cheng

Originally conceived by Italian artist Vittorio Accornero and presented on a silk scarf for Princess Grace of Monaco in the 1960s, the Flora print remains one of Gucci's most mythic creations today. Presented on fine jewellery, the Flora's fleeting beauty is captured in the collection's dainty accessories. Diamond encrusted flowers are set on delicate gold or silver chains and rings, and accentuated with the House's GG logo in select pieces. The collection adds a touch of feminity to any look.
Available at Gucci, 01-37, Raffles City.
