We’re Crushing On…
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.
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
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.
