With Chinese New Year 2024 right around the corner, it’s time for families and friends to get together and celebrate the year ahead. While each of us has a spot on the Chinese zodiac wheel, 2024 is the dragon’s time to shine! This fiery sign is all about being bold and making a statement. So don’t hesitate to show a little pizzazz not only in your CNY outfits but also your home décor this Year of the Dragon. Luckily, you can find all of those things aplenty at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove boutique Cove Collection.
“Red and gold are wonderfully auspicious,” say co-founders Emily Greally and Jacquie Hourihane. “Cove Collection will be filled with an abundance of reds, golds and zodiac animals, as well as new ranges of beautiful CNY outfits, jewellery and accessories to freshen up your wardrobe. You’ll be Year of the Dragon ready!” The store has a host of gorgeous homeware too. “From tableware to amazing platters, candles and stunning ceramics, these pieces are perfect for ensuring your table and house are always guest-ready and stunning. Pop by and see us – we’re ready to style up your parties as well as smaller, more intimate gatherings.”
Matching CNY outfits!
Are you looking for some dazzling CNY outfits for yourself and your little ones? Then you might want to check out Junglesuit’s new Wild Zodiac capsule collection for women and children, now available at Cove Collection. Besides Year of the Dragon-inspired styles, there’s something for everyone. The range features all 12 Lunar New Year animals in hand-drawn chinoiserie nightscape prints inspired by 18th-century wallpapers. The golden accents give the unusual colour combination of deep teal and plum a festive sparkle.
“We are loving Junglesuit’s Wild Zodiac capsule collection for women and children,” say Emily and Jacquie. “The brand is Cove Collection’s guest vendor this January through to Chinese New Year 2024. And while we adore their full collection, we think the Lunar New Year collection that coordinates Cheongsams, girls’ dresses and little boys’ shirts is out of this world! The print is beyond fabulous, designed by founders Andrea and Catherine. With their nod to red and gold incorporated into the pieces, you’ll be perfectly turned out, and beautifully coordinated with your kids.”
Singapore-inspired décor and gifts for Chinese New Year 2024
Another brand newly launching at Cove Collection just in time for Chinese New Year 2024 is The Emporium Home. Its colourful and cute home décor and accessories are a bundle of fun! Check out the new collectable coaster sets, flamboyant flasks, tingkat food containers and priced postcards, each bearing a piece of the Singapore tale.
“To our fellow Singaporeans who own a piece of our story, we would love to bring a smile to your faces,” says founder Sylvia Lim. “For travellers, we would love to have you take a piece of our story home.”
Each Singapore story print that the brand creates pays tribute to something uniquely Singaporean, interpreted in a tongue-in-cheek way. “They include Png Kuehs (Teochew rice cakes), Kasut Maneks (Peranakan beaded slippers), tuck shops, childhood games and the latest: paper planes origami! Another must-have series of our prints features Katong (my ’hood), Joo Chiat shophouses and HDB flats. They bring to mind picturesque scenescapes of our favourite neighbourhoods.”
