Por­traits of Sin­ga­pore’s coolest house­holds in the sea­son’s most colour­ful yet com­fort­able looks.

THE SEAHS (pre­vi­ous page)

An abil­ity to look preter­nat­u­rally, ef­fort­lessly chic seems to run in the fam­ily of Char­maine SeahOng (sec­ond from right), co-founder of brand­ing agency Ele­men­tary Co. and mem­ber of the

Fe­male Col­lec­tive – from her charis­matic par­ents Philip and Chris­tine (both mid­dle) to her first brother Rus­sell (ex­treme left), who re­cently left the cre­ative in­dus­try to be­come a fi­nan­cial ad­viser. Here they are in the se­nior Seahs’ Telok Ku­rau bun­ga­low – de facto week­end hang­out and venue of sev­eral gath­er­ings that have re­sulted in vis­its from the po­lice for noise com­plaints – with their spouses and Seah-Ong’s daugh­ters. Miss­ing from pic­ture: sec­ond brother Bran­don, who works in fash­ion in New York, and youngest brother Dar­ryl, who’s study­ing in Van­cou­ver. The pho­tog­ra­pher (him) and stylist (her) cou­ple be­hind the cheeky In­sta­gram ac­count Cop That Cover (@copthat­cover), which satirises the cov­ers of fash­ion mag­a­zines, in their newly ren­o­vated, in­dus­tri­althemed Up­per Changi Road apart­ment. Of its nude/brown/ white/black colour scheme, Lim says: “It’s the colour scheme of both our wardrobes: mas­cu­line and calm­ing.”

THE FANDIS

Sin­ga­pore’s an­swer to the Beck­hams is also fast be­com­ing our an­swer to the Ha­dids, what with only daugh­ter Iman (far left), 18, es­tab­lish­ing her­self as the next lo­cal model to watch. And of course, mum’s the stun­ning South African beauty Wendy Ja­cobs (mid­dle). Here, the tele­genic duo pose with the baby of the clan (and, we dare say, model-ma­te­rial-inthe-mak­ing), Iryan, 11, in the liv­ing room of a fam­ily friend (they pre­fer to keep their Sele­tar con­do­minium pri­vate), while soc­cer leg­end dad Fandi and broth­ers Ir­fan, Ikhsan and Il­han – all as­pir­ing star ath­letes and equally hand­some – are away for train­ing.

TRACY PHILLIPS’ “TRIBE”

The ef­fer­ves­cent di­rec­tor of cre­ative con­sul­tancy PPur­pose (mid­dle) has been liv­ing on her own since she was 19, so good friends to her are as good as fam­ily – and of­ten spend time at her place just like one. Join­ing her in this photo taken at her new Palm Springs-in­spired apart­ment in Tan­glin are some of her dear­est pals, in­clud­ing jew­ellery de­signer Louise Si­a­haan (fifth from left), se­nior cre­ative man­ager Ida Tan (sec­ond from left), and DJ Has­nor Sidik (first from left), whom she’s known since her Zouk mar­ket­ing days.
