Robinsons x Mio TV Prime Time Fall Fashion at Avalon Singapore

Hello hello! How’s your October coming along? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometime during September, I was invited to Robinsons x Mio TV Prime Time Fall Fashion. Clara of Nom-media (Nuffnang, Churp Churp) called me to confirm my invitation. Clara also invited Eileen, my friend and ex-colleague as they are very close friends. Do check out Eileen’s blog Sylelyn, which I’ve also linked by the side bar! I was very glad Eileen also attended the event and that we got to catch up after a longgg time! x)

It was very disappointing that the event started very late. We were invited to arrive at 7.30pm but the show only started at 9.40pm. I was particularly sad that I missed my French class from 7-9pm. I could have attend my French class and still made it for the show. ๐Ÿ™

Thankfully though, that the fashion show itself was great, it combined both aspects of Robinson’s fashion labels and Mio TV’s upcoming season shows very well. Videos of the shows that inspired the Fall fashion would play before the models came down the runway. ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately for me, I forgot to bring my camera. o.O This kind of shows that I’m not really clue-d into the whole blogger identity yet. Oops! So the pictures are taken by pretty Elizabeth, a friend of Eileen and Clara whom I met at the event! ๐Ÿ™‚ Do check out her blog here. ๐Ÿ™‚

A preview of the shows that Singtel Mio TV has to offer this Fall:

Some of the brands that were showcased includes Eryn Brinie and Rebecca Minkoff. ย Most bloggers probably don’t post the gift-bags that the sponsors give away but I like to do so anyway! I mean, who’s not interested to know what the give away includes? ๐Ÿ˜›

Each gift bag includes a Mio TV tissue box, samples from Kiehl’s and a press release folder. ๐Ÿ™‚Here’s what’s inside the Kiehl’s sample set. My friend gave me no.4 blemish clearing control. I’ve been using it and I feel that it’s very mild but it does work. It also has a medicated scent which I find oddly nice. I would like to use their lip balm someday! We were also given hair-conditioner sample (has to be redeemed at the store).That’s all for the event! Next up, Women’s Fashion Week 2011 VIP Reception and Press Announcement at Marina Bay Sands! ๐Ÿ™‚

Chanel Fall Winter 2011 Fashion Runway in Singapore

Hello~!

Not too long ago, Bini invited me to attend another fashion event, Chanel Fall Winter 2011 Fashion Runway in Singapore. It was held at Red Dot Museum.

Individual portraits of Bini and I after the show on the ‘runway’.

Doors open for the event at 7.30pm but the event didn’t start until 8.15pm. So there was a holding area withย hors d’oeuvres and champagnes served for guest. Then Chanel also entertained guests with two musicians, one playing a modern looking violin and another playing a saxophone, with music blasting. It was pretty interesting as they were trying to interact with the audience (while some scoot away cause they were pretty intimidating). Sorry, no photos of them to show you!

According to FashionOdor.com,

โ€œThe world is a dark place,โ€ is what the brilliant Karl Lagerfeld said about the inspiration of Chanel Fall/Winter 2011RTW show. Placed in the midst of the fog-shrouded forest, with black sand, volcanic rocks and images of burned trees, the show had a sense of apocalyptic grandeur accentuated by Michel Gaubertโ€™s orchestral interpretation of the Cureโ€™s classic โ€œA Forestโ€. Colored in black and ashy tones, the collection blended perfectly with the showโ€™s gloomy setting. The collection abounded with brilliant pieces such as wool jackets,pleated tanks,loose pants and tweed jumpsuits whose men size proportions and the unfinished , distressed hems added a final touch to Karlโ€™s dark vision for this season. What we liked the most about it, is the sense of ease and non-challance, complemented by the โ€˜gothic meets grungeโ€™ feeling.

Take a look at the video of the Chanel Fall Winter 2011 and listen to the music. The experience I had in Singapore was a pared down, miniature version of the actual set that you’ll see in the video. But the clothes and the music are the same.

Some of the images Bini and I captured during the show.

Personally the collection wasn’t too my liking because in my opinion, cuffed trousers with boots, it was simply too bo-ho for Chanel.

But here are a few designs that I think are lovely. Images are taken from FashionOdor.

I like the heeled boots and the delicate and elegant decorations such as buttons, brooch on the jackets and dress. They represent and showcase the heritage and sophistication of Chanel. ๐Ÿ™‚

Chanel also gave away goodie bags for guests. The big black paperbag contained the smaller white bag with cosmetics, the Fall Winter look-book and brochure for their J-12 Chromatic watch.

The look book stars female model Freja Beha Erichsen and male model Baptiste Giabiconi.

Some of the images within the look-book! ๐Ÿ™‚

A photo of the J 12 Chromatic within the brochure:And Chanel’s gift for guests, a nail polish in Graphite colour and eyeshadow pot in Ombre. ๐Ÿ™‚Another sweet gift from Chanel. They printed the photo that was taken upon entrance and passed it to us in a card-like hard paper frame. ๐Ÿ™‚All in all the Chanel Fall Winter 2011 runway experience was a very enjoyable one for me. Even though the guests who were invited were mostly late 20s onwards and quite a few foreigners (so we didn’t quite feel comfortable interacting with them), I think viewing the collection in person was really a treat. Many thanks again to Bini who invited me along as her plus one! ๐Ÿ™‚

Coming up next, my experience at Robinson X Singtel Mio TV Prime Time Fall Fashion show at Avalon.

Robinsons and mio TV presents PRIMETIME FALL FASHION

Hello all readers!

Sorry I’ve not been updating for almost two weeks! Pretty ironic as I had a school break for the whole of last week but I didn’t update because I was sick and still had to prepare for a CCS presentation today! Thankfully I’ve recovered since and the presentation today went well! Hallelujah! ๐Ÿ˜€

As you can tell, my post today is mainly to inform you, if you don’t already know, thatย Robinsons is collaborating with mio TV to present PRIMETIME FALL FASHION! You can join in the fun by checking outย http://www.nuffnang.com.sg/robinsons/ย ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And since we’re on that topic, I shall show you a few images that I think are the BEST of Fall Winter 2011! Awesome or what? Here we go!

Starting with Givenchy‘s iconic prints on a bright yellow to chase your winter (or rainy for that matter, in Singapore) blues away. I love Givenchy’s entire FW 2011 collection btw. Their prints on scarf are definitely collector’s item and their fierce Rottweilers T-shirt designs have already sold out!

Before Bini and I attended Hermes’ launch party for their showcase at Paragon almost two weeks back, we visited the Givenchy store and the staff expressed their surprise at how hot the Rottweiler top was. They didn’t think it would spark so much interest and be sold out so quickly. Indeed, fashion is a capricious industry, there’s no telling which is the next item and why! Although the reason could very well be associated to the media – publicity made it popular. Although it could also possibly that people just liked the print and how ferocious it looks, a like tattoo design.

Next up, I am loving these summery colours on Fall Winter clothings… You simply can’t take away the summer love in me.

60’s Mod look in Pink and Orange combi from Bottega Veneta.

YSL – can’t really tell if this is a dress or a a coat with a furry or feathery skirt – in bright plume.And of course, we can’t go through Fall Winter without having some of Burberry goodness.

ย I simply love the berets and the simplicity in colours, it’s tres parisian. I love how the arms of the red coat poufs up like princess sleeves and the white coat reminds me of a poodle! Both coats are fit for a princess.

Talking about princess, leads me to the last and my favourite collection out of the lot – Jason Wu’s Fall Winter 2011. The collection is simply sublime. He is said to be inspired by Baroque, which he incorporates in his designs through the lace (also a big Fall /Winter trend). I love the simplicity and refinement of his designs which exudes elegance.

In a series of looks, Wu empowers women with very manly forms that resembles the italian mafia, suit-ed up man and dandy man’s wardrobe respectively…

In another selection of designs, Wu create looks for women that are formal and just enough part of lovely with the prints, lace and dotted leggings without being overly saccharine. And more impressively, they still come across cool in every way. (I am certain the sunglasses had a great part to play.)Lastly Wu’s gowns are simply gorgeous. One’s in my favourite pink and black combination and another beautiful long gown with a sexy high-slit cut.

Ending of with an image of the man himself!
