The Best Father’s Day Gift Guide
BY HIRANMAYII AWLI MOHANAN
Your dad may talk a big game and say that he doesn’t want anything special for Father’s Day, but what better way to make the day extra special than with a pressie. After all, it’s probably your dad who laid the foundation to always celebrate the people who matter most to you — whether they like it or not. And if there’s a moment to pull out all the stops for the guy you’ve always looked up to, it’s Father’s Day. Secure yourself the status of the favourite child with our gift ideas below.
LEATHER-TRIMMED MONOGRAMMED COATED-CANVAS MESSENGER BAG RM5,565
A 60-year legacy is written into the iconic monogrammed initials mapped across the messenger bag. Crafted in Italy, this brown satchel bag from Saint Laurent features a waterproof “YSL” monogrammed canvas and is finished with brown leather trims. The crossbody style arrives with an adjustable strap and gold-tone hardware.
SAINT LAURENT 3CM LEATHER BELT RM3,603
The Western-inspired buckle and tipping on Saint Laurent’s belt are oversized and have an aged finish to make it an eye-catching part of your outfit. It’s been crafted in Italy from smooth black leather.
MASTER CONTROL GEOGRAPHIC AUTOMATIC 40MM STAINLESS STEEL AND LEATHER WATCH, REF. NO. 4128420
The ultimate travel watch. The new Master Control Geographic in stainless steel masterfully reinterprets an exclusive, signature Jaeger-LeCoultre complication. The iconic Geographic caliber allows travellers to roam the world, simultaneously reading the
time at home and abroad. At the origin of this ingenious mechanism, a new-generation mechanical self-winding movement draws on a power reserve of 70 hours. For the well- travelled, time saved is always precious.
APPLE WATCH SERIES 7
You can’t go wrong by gifting tech. Apple Watch’s Series 7 is the most durable Apple Watch ever built, with a crack-resistant front crystal. It measures the blood oxygen level with revolutionary sensor and app. You can also take an ECG anytime, anywhere and your heart rate. Along with other innovations like mindfulness and sleep tracking to keep you healthy from head to toe. Series 7 puts more health insights in sight. Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals. Simply touch the Digital Crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. The ECG app can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation — a serious form of irregular heart rhythm — or sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern.
THREE-PIECE CARBON-FIBRE SHAVING SET
Shaving can be harsh on the skin, so gifting the perfect shaving kit for your father or husband this Father’s Day is apt. Lorenzi Milano’s three-piece set comes with a fine badger hair and Gilet Fusion razor that’s protected by a sleek silver-tone barrel. Use the weighty stand to display the carbon- fibre pieces on a bathroom shelf.
LOEWE HOME SCENTS
JUNIPER BERRY SCENTED CANDLE, 610G RM829
Create a relaxing day for your father with this luxurious candle. Infused with a fragrance by in-house perfumer Ms Nuria Cruelles, Loewe Home Scents’ ‘Juniper Berry’ candle is aromatic and botanical. The natural vegetable wax is poured into a glazed, ribbed terracotta vessel that can be repurposed once burned through.
ANDY LEATHER LOAFERS RM11,221
Office-going dads deserve comfy and stylish footwear. Berluti describes its charismatic aesthetic as offbeat classicism. These tan leather loafers were originally crafted for Andy Warhol in 1962 and were considered decidedly modern at that time for their patina. Made in Italy, they have sharp squared-off toes, penny slots and stacked wooden heels. Shown here with Ermenegildo Zegna suit, Etro shirt, Canali tie and Etro pocket square.
SCREENER MONOGRAMMED CANVAS AND WEBBING-TRIMMED DISTRESSED LEATHER SNEAKERS
For fathers who are creatures of comfort, this sneaker would be a fitting present this Father’s Day. Much of Gucci’s lineup is influenced by vintage sportswear, including the way these sneakers look well-worn and distressed. Made from monogrammed canvas and leather, they’re modelled on a ‘70s style and have gripped rubber soles stamped with the house’s bee emblem.
