More often than not, people and things tend to display a dual personality. There are times when we feel like hiding from reality and other times, we find ourselves out there, seeking and led by curiosity.
The L’Officiel Malaysia October 2019 “Hide and Seek” issue steps in to explore the beauty of this duality, and how these overt and covert facets are expressed. Kicking things off is a Clash de Cartier-starred cover, lensed by Yi Tuo, which showcases Cartier’s latest fine jewellery collection in an artfully audacious light.
In fashion, discover the mesmerising work in head-to-toe black by designers Rick Owens, Noir Kei Ninomiya and Yohji Yamamoto in In The Shadows. Over at What Lies Beneath, we delve into Patek Philippe’s evergrowing oeuvre of complications in yet another triumphant year in fine watchmaking.
Those looking to master the art of outlining, highlighting, blurring and blending can turn to Brush Up for the right makeup brushes to make lightwork of heavy-handed application. Ending the issue on a fittingly high note is Fantastic Bars And Where To Find Them — the ultimate guide to the best new hidden bars and speakeasies in town.
