Pardon me for my hiatus, as I was away on a two-week vacation in South Africa. It was such an amazing trip with so many wonderful memories in the Southern Hemisphere that I think I do need another break to get over this holiday.
I don’t even know how to get my photos together for a short post on my trip as I sift through all the photos from the holiday. This must be the vacation where I took the most number of pictures. Each part of the trip was a highlight and an amazing experience.
Gulls at Camps Bay, Cape Town.
In conjunction with the Republic’s jubilee, many brands have launched commemorative items to celebrate SG50. After all, this is a great occasion to launch something special, limited edition and celebratory!
I like that some of the brands also donate part of the proceeds from the sale of these items to some nation-building initiatives.
Because of their new programme (MOTR and Moving Bodhi), I had the chance to step in and experience The Moving Body pilates studio.
The 4000 square feet studio at Robertson Quay has many equipment that are used at their pilates, gyrotonic, corealign, physiotherapy and massage sessions, definitely for those who are keen on correcting your alignment or get serious in your pilates training.
We have probably waited for a long, long while for this. 4 years after setting up shop in Hong Kong, we finally have American Eagle Outfitters in our shores!
I remember dearly how I used join online sprees just to get a coveted polo tee or tank from AEO when I was in college.
College girls and fans of AE have it easy these days because the brand has set up its Singapore flagships store at Vivocity Basement 1!
One year on after Stuart Vevers has taken the helm as creative director of Coach, we have seen more element of British rock and grunge chic in this New York based fashion label.
Coach Singapore hosted a press preview for their upcoming Fall/Winter collection. No surprise when you see the photo wall made of shearling. Remember last Fall’s shearling bags and shoes from Mr Vevers’ debut collection for Coach?
Very emotive, don’t you think?
The above round retro glasses from Shanghai Tang (priced at S$530 a pair) take inspiration from 1960s Hong Kong, but has an added detail of the metal brow bar that in my opinion, is reminiscent of the tail-end of Qing Dynasty in China. Here, chinoiserie chic is infused with modern elements, such as mirrored lenses and tortoise frame to make the eyewear very relevant and on trend this summer.
Call it a retro revival, but round shades are all in the rage. Other than the above from Shanghai Tang, here are a few other rounded shades that you could place your paws on.
I had an accidental discovery while browsing Shopbop the other day. I stumbled upon some beautiful and affordable sneakers from Chicago label “BucketFeet”.
Similar to Threadless, BucketFeet welcomes artists to submit their artwork and selects the best works to be printed on sneakers, lace-ups and flip-flops.
I bought this pair of slip-ons designed by Elena Camps.
