5 different Loquet London charms for five different special someone’s

This Valentine’s Day, skip the serious, stuffy fine jewellery in replace of something playfully personalised.

High-end jewellery label Loquet London allows the wearer to craft their own bespoke locket using charms and precious gems, creating the ultimate ultra-modern keepsake for Valentine’s Day gifting. But with a plethora of charm options on offer, it can be tricky to decide which charm to choose for whom.

To help you narrow down your options, we suggest five different Loquet London charms perfect for five different types of women.


This heart-shaped charm made of sapphires is the perfect choice for the woman who appreciates a classic romantic gesture - and who doesn’t mind wearing her heart on her sleeve.


Fresh Forget Me Not flowers are given with hope that their recipient will not forget the giver and this charm does the same thing – except this memento will last forever. Perfect for the partner you’re often without.


While you could give an initial of yours or your lovers name using these letter charms, we love the idea of spelling out a word that means something to only you and your partner but might seem cryptic to others. Perfect for someone you’ve known - or feel like you’ve known - a lifetime.


The Girl and Boy charms are a thoughtful choice for any loved-one - whether it is your partner, mother or friend - who has children. Give one to symbolise each of their offspring and it’ll be a gift they cherish forever.


The Give A Hug charm is the perfect gift for the far-flung lover or loved-one - every glance will let them know you’re giving them a hug in spirit when you’re not able to do it in person.

Discover and gift your own charms this Valentine’s Day in store at Lane Crawford Canton Road from February 1 – 14, 2018.

“25 Rue St Germain,” “Je T’Aime” and “Star” these are some of the spirited words on Sonia Rykiel’s new Manifesto capsule collection of sweaters that creative director Julie De Libran has curated to celebrate the brands’ 50th year.


The late Sonia Rykiel had a passion for books and words (so much so that she assembled her own library in the St Germain flagship that de Libran has since had restored) and penned several books and essays.



Her most adored was a quirky lexicon of style called “Dictionnaire Déglingué,” which translates as ‘collapsed dictionary,’ and within it, the author assembled her favourite poems, aphorisms and words in an eccentric, sensual riff on style, life and love. She likens a dictionary to Sauternes (the sweet French pudding wine) and describes it as, “a sublime bottle to drink while looking into the eyes without leaving.”



One can now imbibe the seductive power of Sauternes on an olive green sweater. The words bounce of the bold graphic knits with good humour, some making more ‘sense’ than others. But then, a little ‘word play’ is one of life’s true pleasures.

Suzy Drawer $21,500


Great design to me should tick three boxes: It must make you feel good, be functional and have a beautiful aesthetic that never dates,” shares Caroline Olah, founder of designer furniture brand Reddie.


It’s three boxes Olah confidently ticks with her timeless, light-hearted and functional collection of furniture, including dining tables, block stools, stackable dining chairs, coffee tables and benches, all crafted in beautiful materials in classic forms - with just the right touch of retro. What’s partially impressive about the collection is the quality. Made by a team of craftsmen in Central Java Indonesia who specialise in Danish woodworking, each piece is made using the world’s most premium wood - solid teak - paired with European marbles, and promises to last a lifetime.






As Hong Kong’s typically bite-sized abodes can make decorating feel like a challenge, we ask the interior designer and former local resident what tricks she has up her sleeve when it comes to making a modest home look larger.


 “Choose a dining table or sofa that is your ideal size and then work from there. If your place is small, don’t shy away from picking a larger statement piece. Oversized mirrors are also another way to double your room size. I also find having a pared back space makes you feel calmer, and gives your mind room to breathe, so pick a few great pieces and keep out the clutter. Additionally, I love large tropical plants. When you’re unable to have a large backyard, they help clean the air and bring an outdoor feel to your home.”



Suzy Laptop Table $2,500



As for what Reddie pieces work best for a home with limited space? “The Vinny Media unit is great for small flats, as it has so much storage, and can hide all the ugly electronic equipment. The doors are perforated so you can change the channel whilst closed. The Suzy laptop table also works well because you can place it anywhere and work from any part of your home. It’s light and easy to move, and you can use it to eat or work on,” shares Olah.
