LUXURY LIVING may have taken hit from the recent downturn in the global economy, but one curious trend that seems immune to bad news are pet services. Going on holiday with your beloved pets was once unthinkable and tearful goodbyes at the kennel or cattery was the norm, but now a whole host of airlines and hotels are catering exclusively to your furry loved ones.7 Oct 2011 - 12:00am
I just had a baby and heard one of the other new mums talking about these amazing machines from Germany that get rid of fat for you with some sort of vacuum? Please tell me where I can get one so I can drop this baby weight and get back into my old clothes.

I have been doing some serious fashion reflection lately, and what sparked it off were two pairs of Levi's striped boxers I bought at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

An elongated silhouette, ample and fluid, suggests an altered sense of proportion while pleating, ruching, and other hand-worked details add volume.5 May 2008 - 12:00am
Stripes have never gone out of fashion: they are classic, perpetually hip and somehow effortlessly chic.
Although horizontal stripes have been given a bad name, this is in fact a bit of a myth. As is the belief that vertical stripes are flattering (not true). Horizontal stripes can be extremely flattering - the trick is in the thickness of the stripe.28 Apr 2008 - 12:00am

Out with the neckties, guys, and in with the mandarin collar ... it is chic, cool, comfy, and well, revolutionary.
But for a collar that started with Sun Yat-sen's army, the mandarin collar will be promoted by an uber-exclusive club.15 Apr 2007 - 12:00am
With cheeky disdain for tradition, Parisian luxury brand Hermes has released a witty new collection of ties called The Manifesto.

15 to 17 inches is the standard, although Dunhill insists on measuring in centimetres. 'It gives a slightly more accurate measurement, because one centimetre is smaller than half an inch,' says Martin Nicholls, custom and bespoke manager at Dunhill.10 Mar 2006 - 12:00am
