    WHAT TO WEAR NOW: SPRING 2014

    Pink is in again! We love the shades of pale pink, dusty pink and even Pepto Bismol pink, but you definitely can’t go wrong with this. It’s a great accent colour to finish off a black or white outfit, or as a solid coloured dress on its own. Look for minimalist designs with emphasis on structural details like darts or rounded shoulders, as silhouettes are more mannish instead of your typical frilly saccharine sweet style. Scared of all-over colour? Try it in small doses like a small clutch or on your nails. All items from ASOS.   Midriffs are also the new cleavage. I know you’re thinking that you can’t pull…

    BEST OF LFW SS2013: FELDER FELDER

    Feminine but a little off-kilter is what Felder Felder is going for. Definitely a more matured collection from their previous rocker-inspired seasons, but still something very wearable for everyone with the use of printed silks and chiffon detailed dresses.

    BEST OF SPRING 2013: PROENZA SCHOULER

    You can tell a Proenza Schouler design by its modern take on prints, textures and colours. This collection was no different. I loved that it became a ‘random’ mix of everything and still everything ties in so well. Loved the use of the digital print dresses at the end with the grommet details. The PS girl is always cool & modern.         Shop Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear here.

    BEST OF SPRING 2013: JASON WU

    I loved it! Loved it! Sexy femme fatale meets feminine – lace/ leather/sheer with cutouts and yet still retaining the femininity in all of his clothes. And of course his signature show stopping gowns at the end – full of wispy tulle & sheer chiffons.                     Shop Jason Wu at Shopbop.

    FASHION IN FILM: MOONRISE KINGDOM

    I got so excited when I saw a sneak peek on someone’s photoshoot on Instagram that totally was inspired by the whole Moonrise Kingdom/woodland/outdoorsy vibe. You know.. think feathers (those bird costumes), scout uniforms, plaid shirts, gingham picnic dresses etcetc. So innocent and childlike, just like the 2 young protagonists venturing away from home. It really reminds me of the stories I used to read about when I was a kid, about Swallows & Amazons, creating their amazing adventures in the outdoors. Been having a bit of wanderlust envy lately, and yet I want to go out there & explore these far flung places like Kosovo, Lake Como, Shangri-la, Burma, sand…

    RESORT 2013 COLLECTIONS

    So nice! I would think that Resort collections are probably the most fun to design, as they are all about the fantasy of going somewhere nice & warm for vacation. Some place like St Barths or St Tropez etc, and getting all dressed up but also lounging around in long flowy maxi dresses with sandals. Loved the bright pops of colour with all the neon yellow going on, and the sheen of gold/silver skirts/jackets, and of course the geometric or floral prints. We don’t have seasons here in Singapore of course, so instead of going through Fall collections with their heavy, dull colours, I would totally skip right into Resort!…
