Longchamp X Toiletpaper Collab

Designer label Longchamp is known for its rich heritage of creative collaborations, and its latest partnership with mischievous art publication Toiletpaper has resulted in another mesmerizing collection that beautifully merges fashion, art and pop culture – all with a sense of humour. It was a treat to visit the pop-up, which was recently unveiled at The Gasket Alley in Petaling Jaya.

In addition to various on-ground activities, we were impressed that Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari (Toiletpaper’s founders) were able to breathe new life into the iconic Le Pliage bag with 5 different playful and captivating images. Using Gallic icons as inspirations, each of the designs (baguette, French bulldog, the sprinting horse logo and leather pipe) offers various points of view. “We felt their bold aesthetic and lighthearted approach to life tallied with Longchamp’s colourful vision of optimistic luxury,” said creative director Sophie Delafontaine on Longchamp’s collaboration with Toiletpaper. We couldn’t agree more!

The House Of Suntory Soiree

We learned the Art of Japanese Highball at a soiree hosted by The House of Suntory, featuring the Suntory Whisky Kabukin. The skyscraping venue of S35 Skybar & Restaurant in PJ was packed with whisky lovers, influencers, celebrities and members of the media – but make no mistake: the star of the evening was Kabukin, famed for its notes of Yamazaki and Hakushu Bourbon cask, with subtle hints of oak and popcorn.

We bopped to the the beats of DJ Dope Onigiri, mingled with the crowd, and quenched our thirst with Japan’s number 1 best-selling whisky since 1937 – and boy were we thirsty! Here’s a toast to the Suntory Whisky Kabukin!
