For a casual work life there is the Linen Blend Kaftan Dress featuring a linen-blend fabric that provides an effortless style perfect for working at home. For men, the linen cotton stand collar shirt is a versatile basic that is designed for a laid-back or corporate feel. For the home, check out the Women’s Mid Rise Denim Shorts, designed with the authentic and vintage feel of denim, yet come in a mostly cotton material and a good stretch for a comfortable fit;  and the Women’s Linen Blend Open Collar Short Sleeve Shirt which comes in off-white, yellow, blue, and navy. Men can check out the Supima Cotton Crew Neck Short Sleeve Shirt, which combines style and function. At first glance, the shirt looks stylish with its looser fit that drapes towards the hem. When worn, the 100% Supima cotton material feels high-quality as its extra-long staple fiber guarantees strength, softness, and color retention. Pair this with the Men’s Easy Shorts (Jersey), a light and cool garment perfect for lounging at home. It comes in a variety of prints for added style. For exercise, there is the DRY-EX Crew Neck Short Sleeve, made with an extremely fast-drying fabric with anti-microbial and anti-odor properties for sweaty situations. Its highly-breathable woven surface keeps fitness enthusiasts cool, while the mesh holes dry sweat quickly. The Men’s Nylon Geared Shorts suit a more rugged lifestyle as it is made with a light and durable ripstop nylon material with an added water-repellent coating. The shorts have an above-the-knee silhouette that makes it easy to move around in, while six functional pockets can carry necessities.

Cartier reinterprets the Tank Cintrée

FOR THE occasion of the Tank Cintrée’s 100th birthday, Cartier presents a limited edition of 150 numbered pieces, all sold before the launch, illustrating the success of the new editions of Cartier watchmaking’s signature designs. A very faithful tribute to the original model that marks its entry into the 21st century. For this new watch, the Tank was elongated and is characterized by the curvature of its case. Comfort and ergonomics, its name comes from its curved shape which allows the watch to mould itself naturally to the wrist. While the thickness of its case measures 6.40 mm today, all of its signature aesthetics remain: the “rail track,” Roman numerals, apple-shaped hands, beaded winding crown set with a sapphire cabochon and ardillon buckle bracelet. An aesthetic signature that remains unchanged since its creation in 1921, it is a watchmaking classic that is now equipped with a manufacture movement with manual winding, the calibre 9780 MC. In the Philippines, Cartier is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 4, Shangri-La Plaza, and Solaire Resort & Casino.

Comfort by Sealy

ADMIT IT — working from home often means working from your bed. Not the best idea, say some experts. But who wouldn’t look at their bed after yet another Zoom meeting and decide to just lie down and maybe answer some e-mails then take a nap? Spending so much time in bed certainly highlights the flaws that might otherwise have been ignored. A mattress that’s too soft can initially provide comfort but actually lacks the proper support, leading to back pain and other orthopedic problems. On the other hand, a stiff mattress won’t be flexible enough to adapt to your specific body type. So it might be time to upgrade. The Sealy Posturepedic provides quality conformance, comfort and support. Its revolutionary patented spring technology, perfected over a span of 140 years, is the most advanced spring system within the mattress industry. One can choose from a wide collection of orthopedic mattresses and 5-star hotel bed sets. And for those who like working in bed, Sealy Philippines also carries the first and only spring adjustable bed system in the country.
