Face Your Inner Demons // DEPRESSION Spring Summer 2015 @ DFW2014

DEPRESSION introduced their SS 2015 collection titled “Inner Demons” to much applause at Digital Fashion Week 2014. I love the womenswear in this very street style chic collection and would totes wear all of them out. DEPRESSION is arguably Singapore’s most recognisable local label and that is undoubtedly testament to the super duo Kenny & Andrew’s talent in story telling, persistent and unending efforts in introducing compelling collections every season and cross promotions with brands and celebrities. New and inspiring local designers and labels should definitely study them as a role model on how to succeed in SG and beyond. It is thusย definitely well deserved that they are included in the SG50 book as one of the pride and representative of local brand and talents. Without any more further ado, check out the collection below!

Best of Blueprint Tradeshow 2014

 

Hi Lovelies! <3

I was at Blueprint Tradeshow 2014 and here’s a selection of my version of Best of Blueprint Tradeshow 2014.
For more info., you may refer to their official site here.
There’s some 200 local and international labels, of which I’m featuring about 20 here, enjoy!

Ana Faye

Ireland. Website here. Full 2015 lookbook here.

Before the tradeshow, I was invited down to her booth by Ana Faye, who found me online while search for press/blog releases online for previous yearsBlueprint. Ana Faye hails from Ireland, having worked as a fashion and accessories designer for several years in London, Italy and China, her love for handbags and Ireland led her back home to start designing and making her own unique line of leather bags. She now stocks all over Ireland, UK, Europe and the USA and is looking to expand into Asia.

2014-05-16 12.47.35

Unique powder blue leather bag. (Better colour reflected below), 179 pounds here.

NatalieBColeman

Ireland. Websiteย here.

Next up we have NatalieBColeman, also an Irish designer with confident and bold womenswear designs with a tinge of quirkiness. She presented a new FW 2014 collection that I love, which unfortunately at this point in time I don’t have the press images.

NATALIEBCOLEMAN Gold Zipped Lambskin Biker Pants, 600 pounds, on sale here.

LingWu

Singapore. Website here.

2014-05-16 13.10.28

Ling Wu is no stranger to Blueprint, having showcased at Blueprint since the beginning, Ling Wu label has grown exponential and lately even showcased in Paris. Visit her FB here.2014-05-16 13.11.08 2014-05-16 13.12.41 2014-05-16 13.12.31

Absolutely love the structure and print of this MIA reptile skin bag.
2014-05-16 13.13.11 2014-05-16 13.14.00With Ling Wu assistant & Lasalle junior, Margarita.

So so, I only had an hour’s breeze around the Blueprint Tradeshow,
as such the labels below are the brands I see on the handbook which I like and selected to feature here.

In case you’re wondering, the premise of which I decide to feature these brands are based; mainly on what I like, which is womenswear, and a kind of aesthetics veering towards contemporary chic and irreverent. ๐Ÿ™‚

AL’Manita

Thailand. Website here.

Stylish, contemporary, chic. Irreverent yet sophisticated. I want the entire collection, nuff’ said. See the entire Spring Summer 2014 collection here.

American Retro

France. Website here.

Lookbook in larger images/pdf here.

Irreverent slogan tees, varsity jackets, knee high socks, pink leather jackets, pencil skirts, suited blazers. Effortless cool, that’s what they are. The non-basic basics of American fashion editors and fashionistas. I am in love with the brand. My only complain is the name, American Retro – it just conjures the image of a deserted American Petrol Kiosk, which I feel isn’t relevant today. Perhaps something more updated would be better. Nonetheless, the name does explain the heritage of the brand, the french designers went to US and came back inspired to design a collection and brand.

Ange Rรฉvolte

Singapore. Website here.

image2 image3 image8

Titled Metaphor, Pre-Fall 2014 Collection, where there is light, there’s darkness, where there’s good, there’s bad. Frankly I think that black and white has been done to death by local designers, but there’s something still refreshing about this collections; the little details, the geometric cuts and designs, would definitely wear them. Full collection here. Fall collection also out here.

Bitching & Junkfood

UK. Website here. FB here.

There isn’t much images available from their official site, wanted to show you their SS14 collection/lookbook but couldn’t find it so I’m showing photos posted on their FB to show you a glimpse of their brand and irreverent style, which is obviously totally in line with their name, ya’know.

Ema Savahl Couture designer with a heavy emphasis on art and textures in her creation and also worn by celebrities worldwide. I love her collections which resemble pieces of art more than fashion apparels. Those baroque details? How gorgeous they are! Check out her artworks, I mean collections on her lookbooksย here. Amazingly (wouldn’t you want to fly down to their store to get fitted?) also shoppable online here.

Fabitoria

Taiwan. Website (launching soon) here. Etsy Shop here and FB here.

Images from their FB and Etsy shop. These outfits are perfect for afternoon dates at the park, a museum visit and are simply indicative of a woman of elegant pursuits and activities. Maybe all of us will start visiting the museum more often when we don these pieces. Someone buy these beautiful designs for me, please.

Panayo FW 2014/15 Urban Nomad

Hi Lovelies! <3

Today I want to introduce a local label, Panayo. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The apparels are predominantly minimalistic and classy with structural twist. Panayล experiment with geometry, bold cuts and shapes to conjure unique patterns. Panayล is an Ancient Sanskrit word (เคชเคจเคฏเฅ‹) equivalent for confidence. ย  For more info. refer to their site about page here.

Panayo’s FW 2014/15 collection is titled Urban Nomad and their pieces can be found at stockists or bought online. More of that later.

Photos first! ๐Ÿ˜€

THE WONDER WANDERERS

Nomadic Pastoralism “Nomads” is a result of the Neolithic revolution where humans adapt to environmental conditions and migrates to exploit scarce resources. This movementย has been dubbed as one of the great advances in the evolution of mankind.ย Over the centuries, Tibetan nomads “ndrogba” (ย เฝ เฝ–เพฒเฝผเฝ‚เผ‹เฝ”เผ (ย เฝ เฝ–เพฒเฝผเฝ‚เผ‹เฝ”เผ) overcame the harsh mountain ecosystem that offers little and strived on moving through the wandering lustre of green grasslands and hills of the romantic Tibetan plateau.ย 

ย 

The nature of nomadic fashion styles are testaments to practicality and functionality of simple sophistication with a touch of unique and distinctive flair which is intertwined to the romanticism of flowy green pastures in the midst of hostility.ย “ndrogba” dons on multiple layers of clothing that enables them to adapt to varieties of environmental conditions.ย These layered flowy look creates visually stunning overall appeal, one that is iconic to Tibetan nomads.

There is real beauty in their fashion and life alike. The nomadsย did more than just survive. They created a unique, vibrant and colourfulย culture that depicts the triumph of humanity over adverse circumstances and conformity.ย 

Surreal, but closely knitted to the fate of urban nomad in the face of globalization.

“Urban Nomad” is a modern wanderer; a dreamer – of not just things material but immaterial too; from sensuous to spiritual. Home is but a relative concept that is devoid of any attachment to fixation. The concept of flow is aligned to their intellect. Urban Nomad is slave to nothing, not even fashion, but has perceived fashion as the way they deem fit.

My picks from the collection:

Of Vietnamese Ao Dais & Chinese Winter; AFF Star Creation 2013 Alumni Capsule Collections

Hi Lovelies!

So back in May, I attended the capsule collection of the winners/alumni of Star Creation 2013. If you haven’t, go check out my post on Star Creation 2014 here!ย After a year-long internship with powerhouse luxury retailer F J Benjamin, designers Vu Ta Linh, 27 (Vietnam) and Sun Yijin, 25 (China) presented their capsule collections at the Audi Fashion Festival.

Presenting some of my picks fromย designers Vu Ta Linh, 27 (Vietnam).

Drawing inspiration from a song performed by a top Vietnamese singer, designer Vu Ta Linhโ€™s collection โ€˜Indigoโ€™ featured various shades of the colour. Elegant models donned the collection that successfully encapsulated elements of the traditional Vietnamese costume, the Ao Dai, in its textures, shapes and detailing.ย

Another look i love, strong yet also feminine and glamourous.

Presenting some of my picks from Sun Yijin, 25 (China):

Chinese native Sun Yijin brought about a change in seasons at Tent@Orchard as she sent models down the runway in her collection titled โ€˜Winterโ€™. A colour palette of white, grey and black โ€“ commonly associated with winter โ€“ was peppered with bursts of bright orange and pine green, as she sought to combine the tropical elements in Singapore with Chinaโ€™s seasonal climate.ASC2014Capsule-25-300x450

Definitely love the burst of orange.

ASC2014Runway-504-Mid ASC2014Runway-513-Mid

Red Construction is the theme for Zhou Jun’s collection. Red corresponds with fire, symbolizes good fortune and joy. The collection is modern, sleek and reminiscent of Ralph Lauren yet undeniably Oriental through the use of crimson red which is representative of the Chinese flag and all things related to Chinese festivities. A graduate of London’s College of the Arts, Zhou Jun is a rising designer to watch.

ASC2014Runway-428-Mid ASC2014Runway-465-Mid

Leong Yaowen’s collection combines the iconography of the East on a Western silhouette. The result is a beautiful marriage with a contemporary vibe. Leong is a graduate of Lasalle College of the Arts and currently a stylist.

ASC2014Runway-310-MidASC2014Runway-326-Mid (1)

Rebecca Corinne Lam’s collection is titled “ZHI” which means paper in Chinese. Lam treats the cloth in her collection as paper and the resulting combination of laser cut and ink calligraphy is both culturally rich and modern.

ASC2014Runway-271-Mid

Hye Jin Kim’s collection title Blooming Your Truth combines Buddhism symbols and Korean traditional knots. Her collection is on trend with its mix of structured and fluid silhouettes, yet the knot details makes it remarkable and memorably hers.

ASC2014Runway-150-Mid

Newman Han’s collection titled The Scientific Expedition is inspired by the how asian cultures have been influenced by the west, on top of their own traditional culture. The collection is Sahara desert ready while looking fashionable.

ASC2014Runway-123-Mid

Peh Chin Yee’s collection is inspired by Singapore’s National flower, Vanda Miss Joaquim. His collection shows a deep understanding of current sport luxe trends and clean silhouettes. His pieces are outstanding and wearable.
