Bulgari Pop (Up) Corn

What It truly is the month of pop-ups, and Bulgari has transformed the first level of Ion Orchard with an air of La Dolce Vita at Pop (Up) Corn, a prelude to its new Ion store come December. A tribute to the jeweller’s glory and success with Hollywood’s greatest stars—counting Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, and Elizabeth Taylor amongst its clientele—the space is inspired by the Italian cinema of the 1960s, putting the House’s dazzling jewellery and luxury leather goods on show. And while the colourful displays may demand for your attention, look out for the Ion-only exclusives: Bulgari-Bulgari necklace and matching bracelet in rose gold and sugilite and Serpenti handbags in calf leather.

Physically Present Mentally Absent by Lindslee

What Filipino contemporary artist Lindslee routinely challenges the perception of art, and in his latest solo exhibition at Taksu Gallery, the artist evokes an introspection and discussion about contemporary art, the nature of “Filipino Art”, and the challenges of being an artist in his society. In Physically Present Mentally Absent, Lindslee experiments with human hair and taxidermy through the mediums of painting, sculptures and installations, using everyday objects to create works that poke fun at the absurdity of human nature.

Singapore Film Society 60th Anniversary x Shirkers Premiere

What Here’s one for the film buffs: Shirkers is an award-winning documentary about a film of the same title by teenage friends Sandi Tan, Jasmine Ng and Sophie Siddique, which would have been a cult classic in the 1992—had the 16mm reel not disappeared with their film school teacher, Georges Cardona. 20 years later, Sandi Tan rediscovers the film and creates this documentary, which has won her the Directing Award in World Cinema Documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Catch the Singapore premiere on Saturday, which will also be attended by the director. If you have to miss this, however, the film debuts globally on Netflix, October 26.
