Fash-Interview: Victoria Beckham x On Pedder in Singapore

What a Monday. I was starstruck by the one and only Victoria Beckham. Yes, the British celebrity/fashion designer/Posh Spice/Mrs David Beckham was in Singapore to launch her accessories line plus exclusive pieces at On Pedder. I was one of the few bloggers together with the media invited to an exclusive interview and press preview of her Spring/Summer 2014 and Pre-Fall 2014 accessories line at Banyan Tree Spa Marina Bay Sands. Over the recent years, Victoria Beckham has created a household name for herself with her passion and eye for fashion. Believe me, this woman loves her work and it reflects in the design and craftsmanship of her products. When it comes to her label, she gets inspired by things that challenge her. makes sure that her products are of the best quality. However, we won’t be seeing her in a ‘crop top’ any time soon (haha). Let’s hear what Victoria Beckham has to say:

On Vintage Rose for the On Pedder exclusives
“I really like the colour and it looks great with the RTW… it’s just a really beautiful, feminine and romantic colour”

On her favourite bags
” I use the zip pouches a lot, and also the Quincy, which I tend to use most days, it’s a really good size.”

On what’s inside her bag
“I put credit cards, lipstick, iPhone, iPhone charger and etc.”

On expanding her fashion empire
“At some point, shoes will happen. I have to make sure I’m working with the right factories. I have to really research it as a category before I launch into that, make sure I have the knowledge with my team… It is something that I’m very excited to do at some point… I wear flats and heels… it will be a mix of the two… Unfortunately,  children’s wear won’t be happening any time soon.

On her family
“Predominantly, I’m a mum and a wife. Most importantly, will always be the children, and David. I’ll make sure I always take the kids to school and attend school events, and making sure my work revolves around the children and their needs”

On who she would like to dress
“Kate Bosworth, I hear she is coming for Audi Fashion Festival and I would like to dress her… and Hilary Clinton”

NEWS FLASH! A new multi-label store, CommonThread will be opening at ION Orchard (B2-18) this weekend. CommonThread will be offering hand-picked collections of basic apparel, footwear and accessories that help tell your style story.

I wore a tank top from Thread 365, watch from Komono, rings & bangles from Duepunti and umbrella from Totes. Thanks to the amazing team who made this photo shoot a breeze for a novice model like me. I’m glad the umbrella played a huge part in keeping me dry during the sudden downpour! I can’t wait to see these photos at the store! SUPER EXCITED.

I’m eyeing the Cupid’s Love Gat ring with clear Swarovski detail (US$54) and Trilla the Rilla cuff (US$82). C’mon, gold gorilla cuff? That’s too awesome.

Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection 2013

A better world begins with education. I truly believe that all children deserves quality education and a functional school. In support of UNICEF‘s education programmes, Montblanc introduces the 2013 Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection. You’ll find special edition writing instruments, jewellery pieces and leather accessories all feature a unique brick design to symbolize the joint effort of building a better future for all children and their communities, through the schools for Africa and Asia initiatives and programmes in Latin America. Available from March 1st, 2013 to March 31st, 2014, Montblanc will contribute part of its proceeds in hopes of raising at least $1.5 million dollars to UNICEF‘s education programmes. This collection is also supported by Academy award winning actress and producer Hilary Swank who travelled to Ethiopia with Montblanc International CEO Lutz Bethge, with the mission to witness both the progress achieved to date with the funds raised by Montblanc and the challenges that remain to be overcome in the area of education.

 

Montblanc "Signature For Good" Collection 2013

For this special Montblanc “Signature For Good” Collection, the design of the Meisterstück has been revisited with unique detailing. Available as a Classique Fountain Pen, Rollerball, and Ballpoint Pen and in the bolder LeGrand size, the black precious resin writing instrument features a cap top ring designed with the symbolic rectangular brick pattern. The blue sapphire set in this ring is inspired by UNICEF’s blue colour and the work it accomplishes to improve children’s lives.

 Montblanc "Signature For Good" Collection 2013

The leather used by Montblanc for the Signature for Good collection is Italian full-grain printed calfskin to create handcrafted leather wallets, cardholders, a pen pouch and notebook with blue lining decorated with the symbolic brick design. The distinctive pattern on the leather is a series of diagonal lines.
