Burberry makes over Tanjong Beach Club
Get ready for an extra touch of luxury on your next beach outing.
To celebrate the launch of its Thomas Burberry (TB) Summer Monogram collection, British fashion house Burberry has taken over Tanjong Beach Club in Sentosa, as part of a series of immersive takeovers at luxury holiday destinations across the world.
From July 15 to 27, visitors to the club can expect to find sunbeds, seat cushions, parasols and cabanas decked out in the TB Summer Monogram, a new monogram which merges the classic Burberry Check with the TB Monogram and features interlocking TB initials.
If the logomania has you craving a piece of Burberry, you can shop the new summer collection at an on-site pop-up store.
In a sunset-orange design, the store carries pieces for men, women and children, including T-shirts, shirts, shorts and swimwear, along with accessories like the Lola bucket bag. Prices start from $670 for ready-to-wear items.
Singapore is the third of four stops in Burberry's beach club takeover, after Loulou Ramatuelle in Saint-Tropez, France, and Ananti Cove Busan in South Korea. A final location in Ibiza, Spain, has yet to be announced.
Info: From July 15 to 27 at Tanjong Beach Club, 120 Tanjong Beach Walk. To book, go to Tanjong Beach Club's website

Discover SK-II's signature ingredient
Ever wondered what the hype over SK-II is about? See it for yourself with a peek into the story and innovations behind Pitera, the Japanese brand's iconic signature ingredient developed more than 40 years ago.
At an interactive mobile platform, you can learn about the brand's milestones, take a virtual trip to the birthplace of Pitera and see how it is supposed to work on stressed skin.
The site was unveiled as part of World Pitera Day on July 13, SK-II's first global event dedicated to Pitera. The brand held a physical event in Tokyo that was broadcast virtually to the world.
It also launched a campaign called Late Night Portraits, featuring bare-skinned photographs of celebrity brand ambassadors - including K-pop girl group Twice's Mina and Japanese comedienne Naomi Watanabe - who were captured at their "worst moments" at night. The stars had their skin prepped with only Pitera for the shoot.
The campaign was inspired by SK-II's new study, which found that women's skin condition fluctuates greatly within a day, even looking up to 10 years older, due to daily stressors.
