When style extraordinaire, Linda Hao meets fashion textile designer/illustrator, Teresa Lim, you get an unimaginable Yesah x Teeteeheehee capsule collection called, Psychedelic Trip Under The Sea. Inspired by a vision of a lost mermaid swimming under the sea to magical electronic and synth disco music (I KNOW RIGHT), this trippy collection of metallic skirts, oversized tops, crop tops, scallops, magical sea colours and leggings brings you into an unimaginable world that will definitely put a sneaky grin on your face. Personally, I’m lovin’ the Seashell Button Down Blue (S$129) as well as the Sea Legging Pink (S$79). The collection is proudly made in Singapore (Yay! Go local!). Start shopping now!
This spring, Coach highlights the Bar Stripe, Patchwork, Edge Paint and Gingham in its Spring 2014 women’s collection. Indulge yourself in a core colour palette of vachetta, black and rich mahogany with pops of seasonal colors for an ultrachic look. I’m a fan of the Bar Stripe in Borough as stripes never go out of style. It’s definitely a fresh update to the Borough which debut last Fall.
Coach Spring 2014 women’s collection is now available in stores.
Now available in crisp spring shades of vermillion, walnut, camel and grey, the luxurious leather coupled with the stylish silhouette of the Borough is sure to make this bag a wardrobe staple. The bar stripe also makes a strong statement in combinations of vermillion, tan, black and parchment and is available in the Large Clutchable and three different sizes of the Borough as well as two new silhouettes – the Highrise and the domed Preston Satchel.
It’s a cocktail of urban attitude meets bohemian for the upcoming H&M Spring 2014. This collection is a reflection of how we express our personal style by mixing and matching urban essentials with decorative pieces in hues of black, white, mocha, metallics and off-white. The tough look begins with the snug patchwork jackets or leather and suede, graphic-printed waisted jackets and skinny jeans with the slightest kick at the ankle. The bohemian theme continues from last season with frilly, soft blouses and delicate cotton voile dresses for the ultimate vintage romance. There are plenty of faux fur, or the effect of faux fur from tassels seen through the collection. I’m in love with the animal print tees which are affordable yet super chic. Perfect for weekends!
H&M Spring 2014 collection will hit the stores early next year.
Sheer, soft blouses. Check. Tassels. Check.
I’m in love with the soft, frilly white blouse with gold stars.I NEED IT.
Bring out the bohemian side with this moon and star earrings. Isn’t it marvelous?

If you’re living in the same side of the world as me, it’s time to beat the heat. Uniqlo Spring/Summer 2013 Airism Collection is a total lifesaver. This revolutionary innerwear is so light (just like its name!) as if you’re wearing nothing at all. Best of all, it features anti-bacterial, anti-odour, silky, stretchable and even a built-in deodoriser! This unique fabric is cool to the touch, release heat, wicks away moisture and dries up perspiration easily. You’ll be keeping cool and comfortable this hot season – isn’t that awesome? I love the new S/S 2013 colours and will definitely be stocking up on the neon yellow and purple tops.
Priced between SGD16.90 to SGD34.90, the new Airism collection will hit the stores in mid-April 2013.

I normally don’t blog about menswear but PAINKILLER definitely caught my eye. Inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, the Spring/Summer 2013 collection, “King of the Jungle” takes you back to the wild with familiar characters such as Baloo and Akela. Designer Siriorn Teankaprasith definitely bring back my fond childhood memories and gosh, who doesn’t need another sweater? I believe the ladies can rock these sweaters with a mini skirt or shorts. Priced at 4,250 baht (approx. SGD210), this is definitely too cute to be missed. Now, book your flight to Bangkok pronto.
PAINKILLER Atelier is located at Room 323, 3rd Floor, Siamcenter, Bangkok, Thailand (Tel: 02 658 1145).
Two more days to Bangkok! I can’t wait to hop on the plane for a long weekend of good Thai food, shopping and endless massage *bliss* Thai label, Sretsis Spring/Summer 2013 collection, “I Heart You All Over Again“ will make your heart ache in utter happiness. The label’s tenth collection is a beautiful mess of polka dots, pony silhouettes (ooh, and that bag!), cute hearts and bows, and random hearts. The girl in me just couldn’t resist the Sretsis temptation. I’ll be all over the racks this weekend so don’t lure me away from this collection with coconut ice-cream (I won’t fall for it!).
If you’re not visiting Bangkok anytime soon, this impeccable collection will be available at Lula Rock (#02-07 Palais Renaissance) by end of March 2013.
Inspired by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, Creative Directors of KENZO‘s recent trekking trip to Thailand, Kenzo x Vans Spring/Summer 2013 collection pays tribute to ‘The Clouded Leopard’ on the Vans Authentic and Slip-On Vans. It’s time to add any one (or two) of these six Clouded Leopard prints in hues of ocre, orange, blue, green and khaki to your shoe wardrobe. Personally, I’m lovin’ the Slip-On Vans in ocre print. Which is your favourite?
Kenzo x Vans S/S 2013 collection is available at International Collection, Level 2, Takashimaya Department Store (Tel: +65 67358600).
