Last we saw Craig, he wowed us with a stunning red-and-pink ensemble. This time, his outfit impressed us no less – how often do you see a man in a tailored two-piece? (We're pretty confident the finishing third piece is in his office.) Let's also just pause for a moment and consider just how much he looked like a certain Mr Bradley Cooper off the set of "American Hustle" – Craig happens to be a movie buff who spends his free time catching up on the Oscars roll. Also big on music, he's plugged in throughout the day, even at work, to soul and hip hop. "Believe it or not, it helps me concentrate and focus!" Being far away from home, it's no wonder he names his family as his dream dinner dates. "One of the downsides of being an expatriate is that you don't get to see your family anywhere near as much as you should, so the time that we do spend together is something which I cherish."

Audrey, NIL, Shades from Hoola, Bag from CT Essentials, Shoes from Praiaz, Watch from Komono, Necklace from Piesa, Headphones from Urbanears.
Audrey names New York style icon Olivia Palermo as one of her key style influences. "There's something understated in her style, she doesn't look like she's trying too hard yet she owns her look," she explains. We think Audrey does the same, pulling off her boldly-patterned blazer with much ease and confidence. Her ensemble also consisted of a striking red fabric necklace, pink laceless sneakers – a key item in her urban-chic look – and a plain canvas tote that kept the whole look pulled together. "I'm a mix of eclectic and classic, but there will always be that little 'street' in me," she concedes. Audrey is currently committed to taking care of her health ("My memory has been like a goldfish's; very bad recently!"), making cold pressed juices and looking up healthy recipes. She's also living conscientiously according to this quote by author Napoleon Hill – "If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way". "I believe the larger purpose of being is to be able to make a difference to the lives of others. Previously, I had a strict and conventional mindset on what this means, but I now see that it can be in any form as long as it is done with the best of intentions."

What we love most about Dainius' outfit is his nonchalant take on formalwear. His cuffed pants, slightly loosened tie and yes, flip flops, were both surprising and endearing, showing that you too, can pull off a blazer combo in warmer weathers. Having grown up in Soviet Union times, Dainius watched mostly European movies and the style of leading men such as Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon made an impression on him. "I like the clash of British style meeting Italian fashion," he quipped. Danius is quite the bookworm and gym bunny at the same time. In his free time, he is either reading ("If I could, I'd like to finish huge amounts of literature in five minutes.") or working out (Crossfit, boxing, outdoors-y stuff). A driven and motivated intellect, he believes in constantly bettering oneself. "'Don't compare yourself to others, compare yourself to the person you were yesterday', that's what I feel," he shared. Being so far away from home though, is there anything he misses? "I have an exotic black cat at home, I miss it a lot!"

The first thing we noticed about Samantha was that she was glowing all over - a healthy glow on her face, a shimmering crown of red hair, a bright green bag and neon laces on her trainers. Currently looking for a job, she's been keeping fit in the meantime and was on her way to a regular work-out. The active athlete has been living in Singapore for four years.

George, Commodity Futures Broker, Pants from Polo Ralph Lauren.
It's him again! Caught for the second time, George was as charming as when we first met him. Coincidentally, he was pretty much dressed the same way too – in a casual white-shirt-and-coloured-pants ensemble, this time swapping the burgundy for a pair in bright orange – not the least bit concerned about the carrot legs label then. His Gomminos may have weathered a little but George is looking better than ever with his neatly coiffed hair and cheeky smile. During his downtime, the English lad takes short trips to Hong Kong and Thailand for a bout of quick relaxing and can be found partying most nights. Well, we have to say, the late nights have not impaired his good looks.

We already know Linna's greatly inspired by the Japanese mori girl subculture from the last time we met her, and her outfit this time round only emphasised her influences further. A crochet lace playsuit, a vintage floral embroidered jacket and paisley satchel, plus bunny-print socks (!) and that signature mane of curls – this girl's a walking, talking forest fairy. "I'm a traveller, a collector, a forest wanderer. If I could have some kind of magical power, I'd like to be able to go anywhere in the world in a second – I'd love to visit all kinds of forests!" A dreamer and creator of the most whimsical kind, Linna chose (what else?) the deer as an animal she would be. "I watched 'Bambi' when I was young and since then I always had an image of me being a deer in a natural environment," she laughed. So what would she do in a real forest? "I'd sketch, colour, maybe do a couple of outfit shoots for my blog, maybe pick up a branch and create something," she mused. Big on D.I.Y. projects, Linna regularly hunts for vintage pieces which she would then deconstruct and embellish with her own personal touch. She cites Japanese actress Aoi Yu (also a mori girl) as a key inspiration, with Yu's movies such as "Honey and Clover" and "Hula Girls" as her favourites that "capture some feelings I can't explain". Would she like dinner with Yu then? "I'd like dinner with (Korean idol) Jang Geun Suk," she laughed, "As you can see, I'm lost in my own world with a K-pop fan side!"
