Do you recall the previous “Tiers of Joy” collection designed by hansel that was inspired by the Nonya kueh? It was truly amazing how our local everyday food could be transformed into wearable prints.

Well, Jo Soh from hansel did it again this time round by integrating another local everyday sight into her latest fashion collection. And that source inspiration is none other than our HDB flats (i.e. Singapore’s public housing).

Remember my really colourful dress from Jessica Simpson which I associated with the local “kueh lapis sagu” or “gao teng kueh” (nine layered cake)?

Singaporean designer Jo Soh of hansel has recently launched a new collection that takes the cue (literally and figuratively) from this kueh kueh and it’s amazing how slices and slices of these kueh could actually make great pattern on dresses.

See what I mean?

Looked unintentionally as if I was headed back to school yesterday.

Dress: hansel | Satchel: Furla | Sneakers: Camper

I got the shirt dress from hansel at a sale a while ago and it was heavily discounted! Only S$41, if I remember correctly, and certainly a mere fraction of the original price which typically ranged from S$200 to 300 for a dress. I love real sales like these!

周末的穿着自然是轻松一些,昨日我身穿的连衣裙可是来自新加坡的设计- hansel。这件连衣裙是几个月前大减价购买的,才新币41元。原价介于2-300新元,真是捡到宝了!除了设计特别之外,纯棉的布料非常适合新加坡炎热的天气!

I was not able to attend the hansel opening party at Mandarin Gallery and the pictures really spoke louder than words.

To be frank, I am hardly familiar with local fashion because I usually buy my clothes online, or from UK/US brands. Admittedly, with all the convenience of online shopping, I get too lazy to scout for new brands or check out local designs and their stores.

In the recent years, the paradigm has changed and there are more and more opportunities and platforms for local designers. An increasing number of designers are getting recognised and their styles have evolved to become more varied and exciting. So, if you are like me who have been too lazy to shop new stores, it’s time to pay attention to these designers and their offerings!

Hansel, the brain child of local designer Jo Soh, opened their first dedicated store at Stamford House and I had a chance to check it out with Dottie.

There was a time-line exhibit with Jo’s designs over the years and her drawings.

As you can tell, the designs over the years have evolved, but the quirky element has been pretty consistent. I love the printed blazer (ok, me and printed blazer again) from “Criss Cross Boy Loves Plain Jane” series.

Located at Stamford House, I think everyone should pop by to just take a look at her works. The fashion time-line is such a cute idea that it almost felt like going to an exhibition!  In fact, I spent most of my time staring at the clothes on the wall and reading the pictures and cute text.

In terms of clothes size, most of the pieces are size 0, 1 and 2. Size 2 is almost equivalent to US 8 and UK 10. Price range is  at about $229 – 299 for a dress and above $100 for a top.

Guests were given a Retro Spec cut-out. Here’s our interpretation on how to wear the Retro Specs.

The hansel Shop
#01-02 Stamford House
39 Stamford Road
Opening hours:
Mon-Sat: 11.30am – 8.30pm
Sun: 12pm – 6pm
