HA.MÜ explores self-discovery in the latest collection

The independent local craft brand HA.MÜ, consisting of young designers Abraham Guardian and Mamuro Oki, explores the good and bad days in the search for self-discovery in their new collection “Flowers of Youth”. For the collection, the duo has taken up their individual childhoods and experiences of growing up in the different stages of life. The designers are known for their signature approach: recycled, deconstructed garments, structured patchworks and thread work and a distinctive character in a clash of colours, layers, textures and prints. For the collection they present everything from puff sleeves, uniform and side drape shirts, deconstructed Boy Scout tops, ampalaya Designer blouses, button-down and raglan t-shirts, blob pants, handkerchief pinafores, curved jeans and printed pants. They offer a range of accessories including floppy sun hats, fanny packs, baseball caps and necklaces. More information about HA.MÜ and its collections can be found at

FitFlop offers the Yinka Ilori Capsule Collection

YINKA Ilori started his career upcycling furniture to give it a new life, using vibrant colors and fabrics inspired by his British-Nigerian heritage. Since then, he has brought his signature graphic style to communities around the world through a series of playful public commissions. His inimitable cheerful aesthetic now graces an eye-catching FitFlop sandal collection. He chose five of FitFlop’s most popular ergonomic sandal silhouettes (plus a slipper and the iconic Shuv clog) and gave each a makeover. He’s reimagined the iQushion flip-flop and pool slide (men’s versions too), the Surfa, the Shuv – in a limited edition of 250 numbered pairs – and a classic canvas slip-on. This collection offers all-day comfort as it’s designed and manufactured with high-rebound air foam for non-stop cushioning, heel and ball of foot impact cushions, and a contoured arch curve for natural support as you walk. FitFlop also offers the biomechanically engineered version of a classic iQuishion flip-flop.

New World uses La Bottega toiletries

AS PART of its global sustainability program, New World Makati Hotel, along with all Rosewood hotels and resorts around the world, has partnered with La Bottega, an Italian luxury lifestyle brand, to offer guest bathroom amenities under one of its product lines – Malin+Goetz – to offer. The Amenity line will be available in the 580-room hotel’s guest bathrooms this month, consisting of sustainably sourced shampoo, conditioner, hand wash, body wash and lotion. Along with other La Bottega brands, Malin+Goetz packaging uses recycled materials such as post-consumer plastics and is fully recyclable materials such as polyethylene. In addition, they use alternative materials such as ceramics, aluminum and glass for some of their solutions to reduce the amount of plastic waste. The formulations are free from silicones, parabens, MIT (methylisothiazolinone) and are all cruelty-free. Certain products made by the brand are gluten and mineral oil free, and have vegan and natural formulations blended with retail-sourced essential oils. The hotel has already taken steps to implement sustainable standards in the property. At the height of the pandemic last year, it launched its waste management program, separating hotel waste into renewable and recyclable streams, with a goal of achieving “zero waste” or at least 90% waste management efficiency by 2025. Compostable food wrap made from sugarcane bagasse is used for take-away and delivery orders at its restaurants, while organic food waste is reused as plant fertilizer through regular composting for the poolside garden. Additionally, all used coffee grounds are reused and repackaged for guests to take home and use as body scrubs, fertilizer, or insect repellent. Further programs to further reduce single-use plastics as well as other sustainable initiatives are in the pipeline. To learn more about the Rosewood Sustainability Program, please visit
