So for those that are curious what that might be, keep scrolling to discover what made the cut in our weekly Most Coveted list.
Born out of love for travel by founders Purna Khatau and Phoebe Vickers, Rhode is a label that celebrates the holiday wardrobe. And though we aren’t going anywhere right this second, I feel inspired to plan ahead and awaken the bohemian spirit of travelling. The Rhode ‘Fiona’ wrap dress is vibrant in a yellow floral print and is exactly what I need. Made from soft cotton-poplin and styled with blouson sleeves, it feels as breezy as it looks. Here’s to future stylish escapes. — Fontaine Cheng (FC), Digital Writer
More known for their handcrafted dinnerware and exquisite photo frames, who knew that lifestyle brand L’Objet also created the cosiest blankets. Bringing a touch of natural elements into the living space, this tiger striped throw is perfect to snuggle in while lounging on the sofa in front of the television. It’s woven from delicate and smooth baby alpaca, which makes it light and soft enough for summer nights, too. – Dara Chau (DC), Digital Editor
Getting Zoom-ready is my new Friday night ritual, so it’s important that I dress for the occasion. Well, from the waist up that is. Crafted in Italy with a textural braided wool-blend, Gucci’s tweed headband is just the thing to jazz up my hair situation. What’s more, the multicoloured, and slightly neon, tweed distracts from the rest of my mane ever so nicely. I’m wearing mine with some cosy knitwear and statement earrings. — FC
Cemented in fashion since its debut as a formal piece of sports uniform, the preppy modern day polo shirt has become the utilitarian off-duty go-to. But it was really Ralph Lauren who drove the minimalistic silhouette to its current status in the leisurewear sphere. Continuing its legacy as the polo shirt ambassador, Ralph Lauren is expanding its Earth Polo and offering a new blended material to reinforce the brand’s commitment to protecting the environment. Made from recycled plastic bottles and dyed with a waterless process, Ralph Lauren is looking to remove 170 million plastic bottles from landfills and oceans in just five years. Functional fashion with a cause is something I will happily get on board with. – DC

Comfort has always come first, but in a time when loungewear is the new streetwear, it has never been more true. The 90’s classic track pant gets a fresh update in alexanderwang.t’s new rendition of the closet staple. Designed in a billowy silhouette, the track pant’s front is made in swishy shell with an embroidered logo, while the back in soft cotton-jersey with flexible drawstring waistband.
