F Team’s Obsessions

(Clockwise from bottom left):

Wooden cutlery, US$20-US$185 (S$27-S$247), www.sweetgumco.com
“If you think Tennessee native Joseph Huebscher’s handcrafted wooden works – flour scoops, cheese boards et al – are beautiful, wait till you hear the story behind them. Each piece is made from wood salvaged from discarded trees or furniture, then given a new lease of life in such simple yet elegant guises.” Imran Jalal, senior fashion writer

Palladium cuff with mink fur, price unavailable, Fendi
“I’ve been looking to switch up my jewellery, which tends to be minimalist and dainty, and these bold, pop-hued bracelets are exactly what I’m looking for. Bonus: The furry strap makes me happy.” Isabel Ong, fashion & beauty writer

Aman Tokyo, from about $1,000 a night
“I visit the Japanese capital at least twice a year for leisure, so I’m always looking for the next great hotel to pamper myself in. Why this is next on my list? It’s the first entirely urban project from the high-end Aman Resorts group, and every room has the perfect blend of the traditional – pinewood floors, washi-paper shoji screens, even a furo (deep-soaking tub) – with modern luxuries.” Moh Shuying, associate beauty editor

Wool jacket, $3,850, matching pants, $1,400, and silk crepe shirt, $2,050, Givenchy
“I’m nearly always in a dress because I find it the easiest way to look put together, but this monochrome suit with clever colour panels (those aren’t the jacket lapels, but a colour-block print on the shirt) is making me want to experiment with the tomboy look.” YEOH JO-ANN, features editor

Flamant crystal glassware, $280 for six, Bungalow 55
“I love a good drink and I love vintage, and the first things that came to mind when I chanced upon these solid, hand-carved glasses were Old Fashioned cocktail, and Mad Men.” Noelle Loh, fashion editor
