Fashion fanatics: are you uninspired by Singapore’s shopping scene? Then you’ve arrived at the right spot! We’re bringing you the exclusive scoop on what’s got us excited in the Expat Living fashion department this month. From the latest collection launches to online shopping deals, cute boutique openings and new brands to know, you’ll find it all here in our monthly column.
We’re loving all the fresh pastels available right now on The Outnet.com. It’s also a great place to find deals on some of your favourite designer brand names. We’re currently coveting these Robert Clergerie “Gigy” suede sandals, these stunning drop earrings by Bounkit and this Iris & Ink Lucille stretch-cotton shirt. theoutnet.com
Lacoste has replaced its iconic green crocodile logo with the logos of ten endangered animals in a limited-edition line created in partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Animals featured include the Javan Rhino and the Sumatran Tiger, to name just two. A portion of the proceeds of each sale of these “Save our Species” polos will be donated towards their preservation. A great move to raise awareness of environmental issues! lacoste.com
Fashion label Maryling has our hearts all a flutter with its fresh approach to everyday dressing. The designs feature clean, wearable silhouettes while taking inspiration from the sixties with geometric shapes and saturated colour combinations. Versatile, sophisticated and striking! Discover the collection at Takashimaya, Level 3, Ladies’ Wear.

Jewellery for a Cause
After a successful first round, Embrace Jewellery is organising a jewellery donation drive for charity for the second year running. A collaboration between the local multi-label jeweller and the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO), the partnership’s goal is to raise awareness and money for SCWO’s Star Shelter, which offers refuge for women and children who have survived domestic violence. To donate your preloved costume jewellery or accessories (note: they have to be in good condition) head to Embrace Jewellery, Takashimaya Level 3, The Giftbox; Kai Life at #02-04 Holland Road Shopping Centre; or Embrace+ at #02-27 Tanglin Mall.
Wearable and modern – key criteria for our daily jewellery. It’s something that British luxury jewellery brand Monica Vinader has always done well, from its delicate gemstone and diamond ranges to its signature friendship bracelets. (Engraved, they’re a memorable gift!) We particularly love the stacking rings from the Siren collection. monicavinader.com
