Moncler has been expanding in the Asia Pacific region quite rapidly, with stores in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan and Taiwan among its global network of 172 mono‐brand boutique stores.

Now, the top-end clothing brand is set to open in Singapore this fall with its first Moncler flagship store in Southeast Asia. Moncler will directly distribute its clothing and accessories via the full range of Moncler lines from both the Main collection as well as the exclusive Grenoble one. The boutique store will be centrally situated in the thick of the city-state's shopping action, at Singapore's ION Orchard shopping mall on Orchard Road.

All good things come to an end. But some survive the passage of time -- despite the elements, for that matter. On a tiny island off the west coast of the Haida Gwaii (the former Queen Charlotte Islands), the rugged beauty of the village of Ninstints or the SGang Gwaay llnagaay continues to stand with its 19th century remains amidst the wet and lush temperate rainforest climate; its carved wooden totem poles and imposingly large cedar longhouses continue to bear testament to the Haida people's artistry and way of life.

Of all the Ferraris that fetched princely sums at Monterey Car Week, which concluded August 16 after a six-day extravaganza spanning the coastal Californian towns of Carmel and Monterey and at the Pebble Beach golf course, RM Sotheby’s sold the top lot.

It was a red 1964 Ferrari 250 LM, one of just 32 examples ever produced during the 1960s, that achieved $17.6 million, setting a record price for the model. Making it especially significant was that another one of its kind, chassis 5893, was the last Ferrari to clinch 1st place overall at the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965.

Acerbic and bleak but somehow not hopeless, writer-director John Magary's debut feature “The Mend” — opening at the IFC Center in New York on August 21 — is a razor-sharp dual character study of two very different brothers (and their very different lovers). Alan (Steven Plunkett) is a buttoned-up law school grad who lives with Farrah (Mickey Sumner) in Harlem. He's the younger sibling of Mat (Josh Lucas), a crude, careless black sheep embroiled in an on-again, off-again relationship with single mom Andrea (Lucy Owen). Mat gets kicked out of Andrea's apartment, where he's evidently been mooching off her good graces; his only belongings, including a very shitty early '00s laptop, can fit in a small backpack. Temporarily homeless, Mat makes his way uptown and crashes a party at his brother's apartment, a celebration for the dance company that Farrah is involved with. They haven't seen each other in three months.

Though gender parity on Broadway is far from being within reach, “Waitress,” a new musical which opens next spring, boasts a nearly all-female creative team: songs by Grammy-nominee Sara Bareilles, a libretto by Jessie Nelson, direction by Diane Paulus, and Jessie Mueller, who won a Tony Award last year for playing Carole King in “Beautiful,” in the starring role. Chase Brock choreographs.

The whimsical source material — about a waitress in a small Southern town with a pie-baking talent — is also by a woman, Adrienne Shelley, who wrote and directed the 2007 film of the same name. Shelley, who got her start as an actress in a series of films directed by Hal Hartley, was tragically killed just after completing it. The show is being produced by Barry and Fran Weissler and is currently in the midst of a pre-Broadway tryout through September 27 at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, where Paulus is the artistic director.

When Mehmat Hassan, London-born and Bangkok-based dealer of Asian art, decided to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his work, he chose to host an exhibition at the 14th edition of the annual Parisian fair Parcours des Mondes. Hassan chose this fair over any other because, he says, “…it is regarded as the most important fair for non-Western art. It commands the attention of leading scholars, museum officials and collectors, and because Paris is a great city which showcases the arts.” Moreover, as Hassan elaborates, “In recent years, Parcours des Mondes has ventured far beyond the tribal art that it was once primarily known for – today, it attracts close to 70 of the most respected dealers in African, Oceanic, American and Asian art.”

We haven’t seen Japanese cocktails this interesting since Bill Murray declared it “Suntory Time” in Lost In Translation.

Watching a cherry blossom float delicately in an ice-cold 1920s coup glass filled with crystal clear sake and gin can be very soothing. Especially if you’ve had two, and you’re listening to Bar Goto’s meticulous owner Kenta Goto regale the national flower of Japan’s epic journey across the sea to your table.

Singapore JewelFest will return in October with its curated mix of international jewelry houses and designers. This year’s festival will celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee with a curation of crimson and white pieces (representing the country’s flag colors) using a range of white diamonds, pearls, rubies, spinel, opals, and oxblood corals, along with a curation of gold and golden gemstones, from alluring champagne to vibrant amber. Organizers will also unveil a special collaboration with the National Museum of Singapore with creations by six jewelers inspired by a selection of watercolor paintings of flora and fauna from the museum’s collection of William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings.

When Julia Jordan was a playwriting fellow at Juilliard in the late ‘90s, Wendy Wasserstein addressed the female members of her class, telling them, “When you get out of here, people will tell you that your plays are not commercial and I want you to tell them that I am the most commercial playwright alive.”

Indeed, the market place into which Jordan and other women playwrights entered at the time was not hospitable to their gender. In a 2001 study conducted by the New York State Council of the Arts, only 17% of plays produced nationally were by women. But there has been substantial improvement since then according to “The Count,” a new collaborative study between the Lilly Awards and the Dramatist Guild and overseen by Jordan and Marsha Norman, among others. Surveying 2,508 productions at significant professional theaters over the last three years, the study concluded that 22% of revivals and new plays were written by women. Isolating new plays only, that figure jumped to 29%. “That’s definitely an improvement,” says Jordan.

London’s Covent Garden is launching a major art installation by French artist Charles Pétillon on August 27 – the artist’s first public art installation and his first ever live work outside of France. The installation will continue Pétillon’s ongoing series of spatial interventions in which he challenges perceptions of everyday scenes by filling a range of different empty space with white balloons.

Titled “Heartbeat,” the Covent Garden work comprises 100,000 giant white balloons and pulsating lights. Measuring 54 metres in length and 12 metres in width, the “floating cloud” will weave its way through the South Hall of the Grade II listed 19th Century Market Building. The pulsating white lights will symbolize the beating heart and reflect the history, energy, and dynamism of the district.
