In Good Company’s debut menswear collection ranges from minimalist shirts and shorts to trousers and jackets.

“It’s been a while since a homegrown menswear label caught my eye (still loving Biro FYI). This year, the men’s offshoot for In Good Company, which debuts this month, will be high up on my shopping list. The pieces are practical, come with forgiving cuts and classic silhouettes, yet have that intellectual vibe that says “I work in design, fashion and art”. Now I know why my friends love the brand.” – Imran Jalal, senior fashion writer

Viscose and cotton bomber jacket, $709, Versace

“Normally, I’ll go with a simple top and bottom look and add punch with some statement accessories. Now, it’s time to learn new tricks: topping off my outfit with a jacket. I have a fondness for embroidered ones, and this bomber makes a statement with its unusual baby blue and burgundy colour palette and floral embroidery.” – Chris Ong, associate editor


The Mindful Company makes wrist candy with the most positive vibes.

“Two words: Accessorise more. T-shirts and jeans are on high rotation in my wardrobe, and while that is unlikely to change this year, I’m looking to switch things up by wearing more jewellery. Two of my latest acquirements: A minimalist braided bracelet from local label The Mindful Company (above) and a mono earring from demi-fine jewellery Australian brand Sarah & Sebastian, which recently launched on Net-A-Porter.” – Isabel Ong, senior fashion & beauty writer

“Right now my wardrobe consists of too many Muji-esque stuff, and having too many muted colours have made me forgotten my old Studio Ghibli-obsessed self. I want to return to that adventurous, nomadic spirit, and Sacai’s lovely pinks and mix of multiple references (notably Clockwork Orange) had me at first sight. Margiela’s stunning mix of textures, fabrics and well-placed colours is something that also serves as inspiration, even if it is a little too wacky.” – Keng Yang Shuen, fashion writer

The Kate Spade New York Spring/Summer 2017 cross-body bags .

“This year, I plan to collect fun, cheeky accessories that will add pops of colour to my outfit. What’s made me even more convinced to do so: Bright orange and red hues are all the rage on the Spring ’17 runways.” – Sharon Salim, digital writer
