First Look: Alexander Wang x H&M

This is a dream collaboration if you secretly love wearing track pants (like all the time). The long-awaited Alexander Wang x H&M collection made its debut on the streets of New York when the one and only, Rihanna was spotted in the crop top and leggings. OH MY. Then, Vogue Netherlands gave us another glimpse into the “Run The World” collection which includes feminine pieces – LBD, cut-out dress, embossed sweater and all things quintessentially WANG. I can’t wait to get my hands on the collection (at H&M prices!).

The collection will be launching at H&M Orchard Building and H&M ION Orchard on 6 November 2014.

UT Project: Feel The SEA

Let’s talk about Asian pride. UNIQLO partners with five Singapore designers for a special UT project, “Feel The SEA”MAE PANG, MASH-UP, OwnMuse, RÊVASSEUR and WSDM. The other Southeast Asian designers collaborating in this project include NIKICIO (Indonesia), JOE CHIA (Malaysia), MOBO (Philippines), GREYHOUND (Thailand) and PAINKILLER (Thailand). Let’s be honest – designer collaborations don’t feel too special these days. But, “Feel The SEA” strikes a chord closer to home. I love the fact that emerging Asian designers had the opportunity to work with a fashion giant like UNIQLO to showcase their work on a global scale. Kudos to the designers and UNIQLO for bringing worthiness back to designer collaborations.

Priced at S$9.90, the Feel the SEA” UT collection will be launched end of November 2013.

Uniqlo: Feel The Sea

“This opportunity to create something for UNIQLO is undeniably one of the highlights of my short designer career thus far. I have been a fan of UNIQLO’s designs and its quality since before I moved to Japan, and it was a staple in my wardrobe during my four year stay in Tokyo. I am extremely thankful that they liked a few of my prints enough to span over two seasons. Thank you and 感謝しています!” – RÊVASSEUR

Uniqlo: Feel The SEA

“For this FW13 season, MAE PANG explores the idea of perspective through the eyes of the Jurassic age, when prehistoric dinosaurs walked the land. We are proud to present the “Rex Iris Tee”, in an optical kaleidoscopic ring, and the “What is Unseen is Eternal” optical chart tee.” – MAE PANG

Topshop’s ‘The Collection’ feat. Kate Bosworth

“The collection is tailored and classic. For fall, we wanted to create luxurious pieces with a strong minimalist approach. Slim silhouettes are cloaked in a masculine shape, staying true to the mix of masculine/feminine balance that exists in my personal aesthetic.” Kate Bosworth

Feminine vs Masculine. Oversized vs Fitted. There is no battle, only harmony. Topshop‘s “The Collection” for Winter 2013 is co-developed by actress and fashion icon Kate Bosworth. The new collection shows a minimalist side of Kate’s style, a beautiful transition from the bohemian Spring 2013 collection. Inspired by the Piet Mondrian‘s colour palette,  the collection features an oversized bag, pointed and high heels, patent belts and mirror oversized aviators in black, white, foiled metalics and a hint of red. Are you excited already?

‘The Collection’ will be launched at Topshop Knightsbridge on 24th October 2013. Prices start at S$39.
