Feeling a bit of a high after watching our National Day Parade on TV! I am pleasantly surprised that our politicians ditched their usual all-white get up and donned national colours to the Parade this year.

Some of them did make an effort to dress up for the occasion. Here are a few photos that I managed to collate. Who do you think is the best dressed?

This is what MP Indranee told the Straits Times about her saree outfit, “My outfit is a modern interpretation of the sari in our national colors but also a homage to our past. If you look closely, the sari blouse sleeve has a trimming around the edge. At one level it looks like a leaf pattern but on another it looks like a row of hearts. So you could say it’s my I❤️SG saree.” [Source]

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.

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).

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.

Recently, I was introduced to a new local label: Chalk.The debut collection was sweet mixture of bows, dots and stripes.

The photos on the website looked great but I decided to pop by one of the stores to check out the pieces. Here are some pieces that I tried on:

1. Dotti Dress (S$169)

This is a very interesting multi-way dress. You can wear the dress in cap sleeves, halter or bareback.  While I’m not quite a fan of uniform polka dots, I love the innovative design and the contrast between the pattern and the silk material. There is another version of this dress which is navy blue stripes on white.

2. Dotti Bow Jacket (S$169)

This is actually quite a well-made jacket with flattering cutting and details. I think it is smart for work with a whimsical touch with the polka-dotted cuffs!

3. Dotti Bow Dress (S$169)

This is my favourite piece! The dress is really cute but not overly cutesy! I love the capelet design and the flirty georgette material. The skirt length is quite modest although I thought it would be really short judging the photos on the website. If you are looking for a unique and comfortable tea party dress, this is it!

All the pieces are available in size S to L. I tried on the Size L and they fit me (UK size 12) like a tee!

Chalk is stocked at Soon Lee, 56 Haji Lane Level 2, Epitome at 14C Kensington Park Road, Eclecticism Online shop, Odette at Chevron House and at To The Nines at Orchard Central.
