Elegantly melding the line between formal and casual, or between a traditional aesthetic and a modern, more relaxed style, ECCO introduces its first office hybrid footwear range, aptlyOn February 14, 2019 / By Nookmag
Elegantly melding the line between formal and casual, or between a traditional aesthetic and a modern, more relaxed style, ECCO introduces its first office hybrid footwear range, aptly named ECCO ST.1 HYBRID, that fuses a classic dress shoe upper with an athleisure sole.
With its blend of rich ECCO leathers and iconic detailing that exude a strong, masculine aesthetic, this fresh and bold combination puts the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID at the forefront of a trend. The formal uppers with sneaker platforms offer contemporary, fashion-forward men a wide range of looks and wearing moments, from day to night.
From a coffee date to a summer wedding, from the office to a restaurant, and from the weekday commute to a BBQ on the weekend, the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID can be worn to almost any where or any occasions.
Pair the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID with a sleek suit and it exudes a smart yet relaxed office look; but combine the shoe with a pair of skinny dark jeans and a T-shirt, it sublimely imparts an understated formal twist to the casual ensemble.
Besides its versatility in style, the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID boasts an innovative lightweight comfort that delivers a level of ease that is unprecedented in a shoe with a formal leather upper. This is made possible by the three-component P.U platform that features a number of the company’s innovations.
The first innovation is the combination of the SHOCKTHRU SD.PU cushion core insert in the sole that provides significant shock absorption and rebound, with the anatomical VITRUS™ last that creates a soft, cupped heel while enhancing both the stability and fit.
Another ECCO’s innovation for the footwear is the revolutionary PHORENE™, which is the softest and most shock absorbent P.U, used inside the midsole. This is a breakthrough for ECCO’s proprietary FLUIDFORM™ Direct Comfort Technology that was developed over three decades ago.
This technology allows the midsole and outsole to form around the shape of its anatomical lasts to deliver the signature ECCO comfort that balances cushioning and rebound. In addition, it creates an integral, durable bond between the sole and the upper without the compromises associated with stitching and gluing. For enhanced durability and comfort, the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID has a T.PU outsole, while the platform is brought together by a stylish formal leather welt.
In addition to its men’s ST.1 HYBRID launch, ECCO is also introducing two new designs and colours to its current ST.1 sneakers collection for women this Spring/Summer 2019. Bringing more casual comfort and athletic prowess to street-ready sneakers, the new ECCO ST.1 upper is crafted from a unique collection of premium leathers from its own tanneries for a soft touch and sporty look.
Similar to its previous collection, the ECCO ST.1 infuses ECCO’s technology with SHOCK THRU’ SD.PU insert that provides unparelled comfort and doubles up the shock absorption.
The price of ECCO ST.1 HYBRID for men starts from SGD 329.90 and ECCO ST.1 for women starts from SGD 279.90. Both collections will be available in store and online from this month onwards.

Castiglion del Bosco celebrated the launch of its limited-edition Zodiac Boar in Singapore amidst the gathering of wine enthusiasts over an intimate dinner in the House of TanOn February 13, 2019 / By Nookmag
Castiglion del Bosco celebrated the launch of its limited-edition Zodiac Boar in Singapore amidst the gathering of wine enthusiasts over an intimate dinner in the House of Tan Yeok Nee a couple weeks ago. The launch was specially hosted by Massimo Ferragamo, Owner of Castiglion del Bosco, Simone Pallesi, CEO at Castiglion del Bosco and Cecilia Leoneschi, Winemaker at Castiglion del Bosco.
Invited guests were welcomed to a contemporary Chinese mansion, befitting of the launch of the Zodiac Boar Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012. The magical setup bridged elements of the venue’s traditional Chinese architecture together with a Tuscan vineyard, reflecting the intersection of both cultures.
On display was the entire Zodiac collection thus far, set against a backdrop of deep greens and cellar-like wooden accents. Guests enjoyed a unique dining experience of Asian fusion cuisine, paired with some of the finest expressions from Castiglion del Bosco, featuring the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013 and Campo del Drago Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013.
The highlight of the dinner was the pour of the Zodiac Boar Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012, when guests had the chance to have the first taste of the exceptional limited-edition wine. An extraordinary and unique expression of a 5-star vintage, characterized by great harmony, balance and persistence, the Sangiovese has a rich bouquet, indicating great finesse and elegance. A great complexity and richness increase this wine’s longevity, which remains uniquely distinguishable over time. This prestigious wine is the result of the expert selection of the very best grapes from their finest vineyards, and received a rating of 98 points by revered wine critic James Suckling.
The Zodiac collection is defined as Castiglion del Bosco’s very best, and the Zodiac Boar marks its launch in anticipation of the 2019 Chinese New Year which celebrates the Year of the Boar. In attendance was renowned Chinese artist Tse Yim On, whose bright and vibrant artwork was specially commissioned to for the bottle’s label. The joyous occasion was a fruitful evening that celebrated the gathering of likeminded wine lovers, enhanced with an exclusive dining experience reminiscent of the elegance and grandeur of the Castiglion del Bosco estate in Tuscany.

In essence, few things are more romantic than a scenic stroll accompanied by your loved one along the river, dotted by lights and soft cheers coming from nearby establishments. Located along Boat Quay, The Sampan, celebrates romance this February with an exclusive three- course menu from now till Friday, 15th of February. Where most celebratory menus are made for one, The Sampan offers a “His” and “Hers” Valentine’s Day selection, bearing in mind that these days, it’s not necessarily the guy that’s the heartier eater.

Perhaps one of the larger set menu options available for the season, Monti offers diners a 6-course menu consisting of Amuse Bouche of baccalà, Hokkaido Scallops, King Salmon Tartare, Sponge cakes, Gelato, and Candy Floss to say the least. With each dish presented via a myriad of techniques, this joint brings new meaning to art on a plate, with some dishes possibly being too pretty to eat.

For an Asian twist on Valentine’s Day, indulge in a menu crafted to include Truffle Chicken Spring Rolls, Double-boiled Abalone Soup, Lemongrass baked Pork Ribs, and Steamed Lobsters with miso, and the like. While this occasion is surely a Western invention, there are some of us who just can’t do without that very Asian bowl of rice during mealtime. Throw in a pre-dinner cocktail, aptly named Bed of Roses, and voila~ After all, who would say no to roses on Valentine’s, right?

For the unconventional couple, here’s a chance to pay it forward this Valentine’s Day with EGBOK and Spoons as they come together to showcase Cambodia’s authentic and piquant cuisine. For 2 days only, during 14 and 15 February, Spoons chefs Sun Sam Oath and Heng Vicheka will marry the flavours of the Cambodian countryside and traditional street food to present a romantic 6-course Valentine’s Day set dinner menu that features some of Spoon’s biggest hits created with the featured Cambodian produce on retail.
Think Kor Ko Soup – a traditional Cambodian stirring stew with toasted IBIS rice and Sovannak palm sugar; or Pan Seared Duck Breast glazed in a La Plantation Kampot peppercorn orange sauce, and give your special someone the gift of giving back with 15% of the proceeds from both evenings returning to EGBOK, which in turn affords more underprivileged young adults in Cambodia the opportunity to succeed in the hospitality industry.
Likewise, local boutique florist Beverly’s Blooms gets in on the spirit of giving by teaming up with SPRMRKT to not only complete each meal with their signature handcrafted bag-quets (bagged bouquets), but also pledge a portion of their proceeds back to EGBOK.
Making your bookings through Chope will also afford you a chance to win fantastic prizes, including a two-night stay at a four-star luxury boutique hotel in Siem Reap.

In 1999, Levi’s introduced the Levi’s Engineered Jean (LEJ), and announced that it was an “innovative approach to denim” with twisted side seams designed to maximize comfort and freedom of movement to fit any lifestyle choice imaginable. Two decades on, Levi’s is now celebrating the collection’s 20th anniversary with a Spring/Summer 2019 relaunch, with a modern twist.
So What’s New?
In the 2019 reissue, fans can expect a melding of vintage vibes and new-age silhouettes, in contemporary styles including loose jeans and the Levi’s Engineered Knit featuring a “four-way stretch” for extra comfort, red Two-Horse back patch, the signature twisted side seams, the LEJ logo printed on the inner pocket linings, as well as printed hanger loops.
2019 LEJ Campaign
A widely regarded icon in Japan’s entertainment scene, singer-actor Kimura Takuya had previously starred in the first LEJ campaign 20 years ago.
This year, he is back again with a co-star, singer-songwriter Leah Dou for the 20th anniversary reissue, demonstrating how versatile the LEJ collection really is, and aptly proving that the collection is well suited for movement with comfort.

Inspired by barefoot runners and developed by ECCO in partnership with elite triathletes, the revolutionary BIOM® NATURAL MOTION® technology turns 10 this year. In celebration of the technology’sOn January 20, 2019 / By Nookmag
Inspired by barefoot runners and developed by ECCO in partnership with elite triathletes, the revolutionary BIOM® NATURAL MOTION® technology turns 10 this year. In celebration of the technology’s anniversary, ECCO is launching a commemorative BIOM® C 10th anniversary range in Singapore and selected Asia Pacific markets. Over the last decade, BIOM® has transformed outdoor footwear by guiding the foot to move more naturally, freeing the wearer to walk or run more powerfully, efficiently and smoothly, in exquisite, ultra-modern comfort.
During these ten years, the technology has come to symbolise the Danish brand’s innovative, original approach to shoemaking. While BIOM® technology, which stands for ‘biomechanical optimisation’, was originally introduced into running shoes, it has since been adapted and used across a wide range of ECCO Outdoor series footwear, and designers are continuously seeking out new ways of deploying this technology. With every stride taken in a pair of BIOM® shoe or boot, the wearer is able to move more naturally as the technology activates the foot’s natural systems for motion and shock absorption.
Ten years on, the technology is just as pioneering and innovative as when it was first launched and ECCO has been improving it, step by step. To create this entirely new shoe technology, ECCO collaborated with the Sport University of Cologne in Germany, scanning more than 2,500 athletes’ feet, and then combining that data with biomechanics researchers’ findings, as well as studies of elite triathletes.
One of the benefits of BIOM® technology is the low-to-the-ground construction, which helps to improve the wearer’s motion control and stability, while the strategically-placed flex grooves also enhance one’s natural movement by supplying a better push and maximum forward movement.
Another benefit of BIOM® is its anatomical last, which shapes the shoes into the desired silhouette, follows the curves of the wearer’s foot closely. The combination of that last and the premium materials in the upper – whether using ECCO leather or textiles, allows the wearer to enjoy an exceptional snug fit.
Wherever one goes in a pair of BIOM® shoe, the wearer will also be supported by outstanding, long-lasting cushioning, thanks to the brand’s own innovative FLUIDFORM™ Technology, which direct-injects resilient and shock-absorbent P.U. into the sole, following the anatomical shape of the shoe last.
Constructing a shoe with FLUIDFORM™ Technology also creates a strong bond between the upper and sole, with its state-change liquid-to-solid materials, that avoids the difficulties traditionally associated with glued and stitched assemblies, while also reducing seam construction.
BIOM® does not just mimic a bare foot – it forms a ‘second skin’ around the foot to almost become part of it. BIOM® C 10th anniversary range is priced at SGD 459.90 and is only available exclusively at ECCO ION Orchard and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands from end January 2019 onwards.
