JUNGLE JEWELS

SUCCULENTS JEWELS

Creator Susan McLeary imagines amazing jewels from succulents she collects at her family’s greenhouse. The plants resist for 2 – 4 weeks before they die and you can remove them to reveal the naked jewellery. If you feel that the plants are going to waste, they can also be re-potted. More on her etsy page here. […]

BREADLINE

In my humble opinion, it takes guts and determination in wanting to initiate a social and ecological change through fashion. And once in a while, a designer like Bethany Williams comes by and sweep me away with her overflowing passion and creativity for such causes. Williams believes that social and environmental issues go hand in hand and […]

JON MAX GOH

Cover Image Credits: amfuku.com By stroke of luck, I walked into National Design Centre after lunch during a typical humid afternoon and I was greeted by a breeze of freshness that was happening in one of the exhibition galleries. On show was Jon Max Goh‘s graduate collection from Parsons The New School for Design. Titled ‘Nostos.algia‘, the […]

F21 THREAD SCREEN

Most companies seek out the latest displays for high-tech billboards, but Forever 21 has decided to take a different route for this particular Instagram project. For the past year-and-a-half, the folks at connected hardware maker Breakfast New York have been building a “Thread Screen” for the company. It’s called that, because well, it’s literally a […]

FROM OCEAN TRASH TO ADIDAS SHOES

Sports retailer Adidas recently teamed up with a conservation organization called Parley for the Oceans to put the ocean’s overwhelming amount of trash to good use. In a world’s first prototype, the two groups created a shoe whose upper construction was harvested from ocean plastic and illegal deep-sea gillnets. A Parley ally, the Sea Shepherd […]

ALEXANDER WANG’S GOLD CARD

All the usual suspects were there at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. Everyone was dressed in their coveted couture and looking in their absolute best. But the standout of the night has to be the creation by Alexander Wang, worn by German model Anna Ewers. Yeah it does look nothing more than a […]

BLACK

Sorry for the disappearance. Here in Singapore, we have just lost our founding father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, leaving Singapore shrouded in grief and darkness. Seeing the colour black almost everywhere from retail stores, social media, the news, no doubt it’s kinda depressing. But at the same time, black is appropriate. It provides information, depth […]

GARETH PUGH F/W 2015

Returning to London after 7 years of showing elsewhere, Gareth Pugh‘s recent F/W 2015 collection screams a little revolutionary to me. Dark, dramatic, warrior-like, the show was again very Gareth Pugh but in his own words, it was optimistic. But best thing of all has to be the looks made from black drinking straws, that […]

MARY KATRANTZOU F/W 2015

Hey I’m back from the Chinese New Year holidays and yes I do feel a little chubby from all the feasting. But nonetheless, I’m still trying to catch up on the backlog of fashion shows that has been happening during the New Year holidays and thank god for some amazing finds! Mary Katrantzou kick-started her […]

MAISON MARGIELA ARTISANAL SPRING 2015

Maison Margiela is back once more with its artisanal collection. This time round, with John Galliano as its new creative director. No doubt, there were jitters and suspicion on whether the ex-Dior designer could deliver but he did. And he did it exceptionally well. Martin Margiela‘s ability to infuse new life into the overlooked, the […]

GRAHAM FAN

One of the 8 finalists for the H&M Design Award 2015, Graham Fan recently presented his graduate fashion collection in hopes of winning the grand prize at the awards. However, it was Ximon Lee (previously) and his collection titled ‘Children of Leningradsky’ who took home the grand prize and will be presenting a collection with H&M. Despite not […]

SADIE WILLIAMS

Wetsuits often reminded me of deep sea adventures, tight fits, dark colours and often not that flattering if your body isn’t looking like Gisele Bundchen. But with some innovation and creativity, the neoprene fabric of wetsuits can turn into something stunning. Fashion designer Sadie Williams heat-pressed neoprene to create this collection of metallic sci-fi garments that […]

Every season there’s something different and great to share. Known for their colourful prints and updating of tailored menswear, Agi & Sam is one of my […]

CHRISTOPHER SHANNON F/W 2015 MENSWEAR

“This plastic bag is a not a toy. Keep away from children.” But to Christopher Shannon, It’s a fashion accessory. It’s a mask, its a corsage, its a statement. At the recent London Mens’ Fashion Week, Christopher Shannon presented a rather dystopic undertone collection. Models are featured wearing plastic bag over their heads some what signify […]

RED ALL OVER

Hint Fashion Magazine recently published a fashion editorial on their site featuring a model with a face painted cardinal red wearing various paper fashion. Very stunning lighting as well to bring depth to the matte finishing of the black paper. Very reminiscent of Viktor & Rolf’s A/W 2011 show as well. Photography: Lena Kholkina Design: Venera […]

BULLETIN

It’s pretty obvious why I’m posting this. No doubts about it. I enjoyed very much how the newspaper is manipulated into many different textures that worked for editorial. From layering to crushing or even a simple letting it all hang, it created many dimensions for the photos to come alive, despite the lack of accessories […]

HOUSE OF CARD

  I randomly found a copy of Wylde magazine lying around my bookshelf and was just browsing it as usual for random inspirations when I saw this amazing editorial photographed by Hannah Richards, with art direction and cardboard dresses made by Miguel Lledo. I was pleasantly surprised by it. As you guys know, Wylde magazine […]

RE-IMAGINING SCI-FI FOOTWEAR

Everyone imagines what their future will be like. What will the future hold and how it will all turn out. We have no control of it but we certainly have the ability to imagine it. Building our own future, our own world. Mandy Roos was inspired by old school sci-fi films and their imaginary visions […]

I PAGLIACCI

Chanced upon this amazing fashion editorial on Schön! Magazine N°27. It features an array of junky styling and a mixture of textures with a little reference of clowns/ circus/ harlequins. Something very up to my taste level and aesthetics. Schon Magazine N°27 Photographer: Livia Alcalde Stylist: Pablo Patanè Makeup: Valeria Orlando Hair: Riccardo Lupini Also […]

DISTRICT 12, KATNISS ABERDEEN.

Ok totally random but today’s post definitely have some sort of connection with the Hunger Games. Specifically District 12 where our girl on fire is from. Enough of rubbish talk, we look at Polish design studio bro.Kat who made one of a kind jewellery from coal. bro.Kat is a reference to “black gold” as coal […]

“Throw nothing away, we will always find a use for it!” I don’t know how I could have missed this (video was last posted a year ago on Hermès  youtube channel) but can we just celebrate how lovely this initiative by Hermès is?! Hermès is known for its quality goods made to perfection and its inevitable that […]

ANDREAS EKLOF

This work explores how action fashion can be used as a method to develop alternative expressions in outdoor wear. The tape techniques are my way of working with action fashion to achieve a more immediate means of creating outdoor garments. The outcome of the collection shows possibilities of developing alternative working methods within outdoor wear […]

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN A/W 2009

Sex doll lips, rubbish on models’ head, trash pile in the middle of the runway. If there was one thing on Alexander McQueen mind, it has to be ugly for his A/W 2009 collection. McQueen’s showmanship for his collection is something that I have always revered towards to. No doubt as well for this A/W collection. As models […]

I LOVE CORKS TOO.

Previously, I mentioned that I love corks in Ostwald Helgason’s S/S 12 runway collection where the material was being utilised into many wearable pieces. Now the cork has returned again. This time round product designer Todd Bracher was invited by Wallpaper* magazine to create an object made from cork for the handmade issue and he […]
