Want to catch up with the latest style trends and all the shopping in Singapore? Or get a peek at some cool designer collections? Read on for this month’s update.
It’s a trend: Culottes
Comfortable and universally flattering, culottes are back and we hope they’re here to stay. Pair yours with a fitted top in a solid colour, or a classic white shirt. Remember: flared bottoms paired with a higher waist have a slimming effect.
Neo Collection, the latest launch from fine jeweller Larry Jewelry, blends design elements from the 1960s with current trends from international fashion catwalks. All pieces are crafted with high-quality diamonds, sapphires, rubies and other precious gemstones. Available at #01-21 Paragon.
Puma X McQ
For its latest collection, sportswear brand Puma has partnered with none other than fashion house Alexander McQueen. Inspired by the human anatomy, the shoe designs mimic ribcages and tendons to create cool, cage-like styles. Available at selected PUMA, Limited Edition and Leftfoot stores. Priced from $240 to $440.
Brazilian eco-friendly footwear brand Melissa has collaborated with not one, not two but five huge fashion names on its F/W 2014 collections, including Jason Wu, J. Maskrey, Gareth Pugh, Campana Brothers and Karl Lagerfeld. Made from a patented form of PVC called Melflex, Melissa’s flexible and comfortable shoes are hypoallergenic, odourless and 100 percent biodegradable. MDREAMS, #B2-03 Wheelock Place.

Inspired by the film noir movement of the 1940s, along with style notes from 1920s jazz bars, this glamorous new collection from milliner Helen Kaminski reflects cool minimalism with a twist of contemporary chic, influenced by design icon Zaha Hadid, the renowned Middle Eastern architect. Stockists in Singapore include Angel Accents in Takashimaya, Club 21b in Forum the Shopping Mall, Inhabit in the Mandarin Gallery, and Latitude-11.
Carrera celebrates its range of iconic glasses with re-editions of two models that made fashion (or should that be “accessory”?) history: the Champion and the Carrera 6000. Both have been redesigned in an exciting blend of ultra-lightweight metal and stainless steel.
