HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SINGAPORE!
More than ever, this is the time to keep our flag flying high. Although we cannot celebrate National Day with you, we bring to you the pride of Singapore. We are thrilled to present our annual 40 Under 40: Class of 2020, showcasing possibly the most impressive, talented, diverse and well-intended group of young achievers in the list’s 10-year history. Among them are our cover personality and next-gen lifestyle visionary Joan Chang, two female scientists (one of them deeply involved in Covid-19 vaccine research) and a couple of marine conservation warriors. The majority of them have also gone beyond pursuing personal and career achievements to answer the call of community and society. We also extend our applause to Singapore’s national fashion treasure, Paris-based designer Andrew Gn, who is looking forward to his 25th anniversary in the industry next year. As a warm gesture towards Prestige, which celebrates our 20th birthday this year, Andrew has collaborated with us to create a one-of-a-kind, couture-quality face mask to be auctioned off for charity. Watch collectors are also aware that luxury timepiece launches have been profoundly affected by the pandemic, but worry not, for our Watch Special this issue features the latest, the best and the most innovative collections and pieces worthy of your attention. For lads who are aching to update their wardrobe, our Men’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection stories should be most helpful.
