We’re Crush­ing On…

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Fashion -

This sea­son’s new “it” bags. On our lust list is Tod’s Sella bag, which has al­ready been seen car­ried by celebs like Alessandra Am­bro­sio and Naomi Camp­bell, to name but two. Crafted in fine leather with tech­niques sim­i­lar to those used by an­cient sad­dle­mak­ers, each bag is metic­u­lously pieced to­gether by hand.

Next up is Longchamp’s leather Paris Premier bag, which pays homage to Paris’s Rue Saint-honoré, the fa­mous fash­ion strip, through its graphic and struc­tured lines. It’s the de­tails that give it its luxe fin­ish, like touches of brass hard­ware and a but­tery-soft lamb­skin-lined in­te­rior.

New Store Open­ing

Great news: well- loved Aus­tralian brand Seed Her­itage has just opened its fifth store in Sin­ga­pore, and it’s in Tan­glin Mall! The store stocks gor­geous ranges for ba­bies, tod­dlers and kids, as well as sports col­lec­tion for teenagers. And yes, there’s a women’s cap­sule col­lec­tion too. Find the store at #0232/33/34.

Shoe Heaven

Tas­sels! Per­fo­rated leather! Metal­lic ac­cents! Em­bel­lish­ment! Aldo’s lat­est col­lec­tion has it all and more. We’ve got our eye on the “Kandie” plat­form san­dals in pow­der blue, and the ver­sa­tile nude “Dor­thy” mule heels. Avail­able now

Nifty Tech

A good wardrobe needs to be lov­ingly main­tained, and for that a good iron or steamer is a must. Lauras­tar Go com­bines a pro­fes­sional iron and steam with an ac­tive ta­ble that in­cludes a blower and vac­uum sys­tem for the smoothest and most flaw­less re­sults. Not a crease in sight! Avail­able at TANGS and Har­vey Nor­man.


An­other Sin­ga­porean la­bel to watch, Gin­lee Stu­dio was founded in 2011 in Is­rael by de­signer Gin Lee, who won the Emerg­ing Fash­ion De­signer Award dur­ing the in­au­gu­ral Sin­ga­pore Fash­ion Awards in Novem­ber 2016! The soft tai­lor­ing and sub­tle colour pal­ette of her lat­est col­lec­tion, in­spired by X-ray pho­to­graphs of flow­ers by artist Steven N. Mey­ers, caught our eye. Prices range from $100 to $300. Find the col­lec­tion on­line at gin­leestu­dio.com and at TANGS, Kapok NDC, Thread­bare & Squir­rel and Egg3.
