Kim Raymond

Sought-after Malaysian fashion stylist Kim Raymond knows a thing or two about dressing well. Besides working her magic in the country’s best-read fashion glossies, Kim herself exudes a distinct style and personality that lilts from casual to edgy at a snap. Together with her actor husband Keith Foo, they are one of Kuala Lumpur’s hottest celeb couples, recognised and loved for their presence and exuberance.

Richard Mille RM005

“This RM005 (above) was the first Richard Mille that my father owned and he definitely passed down his love of watches – as well as some of his watches – to me and my brother. I always buy bracelets as souvenirs when I travel. Every time I wear them, the bring back memories of my trips.”

Chanel J12

“This Chanel J12 (above) is my first-ever watch. It was a birthday present from my parents for my 18th birthday. I first laid eyes on it when I was 16 so I waited a two whole years for it. It was worth the wait. I’m always dressed in monotone outfits so statement accessories help make my outfits stand out.”

Corum Golden Bridge

“I love anything gold, and I like how unusual this Corum Golden Bridge (above) looks. The watch goes perfectly with my Anya Hindmarch clutch”

Bulgari Carbon Gold

"These Bulgari Carbon Gold limited edition pieces (above) are named after different cities, the one in white gold is Rome, and the one in rose gold is Beijing. There’s only one piece each in the world, and they’re both gifts from my father.”

Rolex Day Date

“When you talk about luxury timepieces, Rolex is the first brand that comes to mind. Everyone wants a Rolex. And this Rolex Day Date is perfect for me because, well, I just love gold. Anything gold.”

Apple watch

“I love the Hermes strap on this Apple watch (above). I don’t like guns in particular but it’s the symbolism that I love. I’m not a girly girl and I’m very attracted to Mafia movies and the idea of being tough.”
