New Store in the South
Aussie label Oroton has opened a shiny new store in VivoCity, stocking lust-worthy women’s apparel, leather goods, accessories, jewellery and footwear. Attention, ladies: there’s also a men’s collection – the perfect excuse to bring your other half along at the weekend. #01-190, Vivocity.
Reach for the Light
This is the iconic Ralph Lauren Ricky Bag, but with a twist. The new Ricky Bag with Light features a discreet, rechargeable battery powering an internal LED light to help you locate your phone, keys, purse – so no more handbag-digging. Even cooler, it has a built-in USB port to charge your mobile devices, all contained in a supple calf-leather exterior with rose gold-plated hardware. #B1-72, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
We’re coveting the latest jewellery range by Spanish designer Jorge Revilla, new in at multi-label boutique Embrace Jewellery. The sterling silver collection with gold and rose gold accents includes earrings, pendants and rings. Prices from $150. #01-15 Orchard Gateway.
Bold is Beautiful
To complement its vibrant spring/summer Tropicana collection, Bimba Y Lola has released a gorgeous leather range in bold hues. The bowler-bag and zipped purse shapes are versatile and easy to carry, and boast chic quilted designs. Shop at #B1-04 ION Orchard.
Fresh, modern, wearable: three words we’d use to describe Karen Millen clothing. The spring collection focuses on the perfect wardrobe basics (shirts, cropped trousers, tailored denim), utility wear (jumpsuits and shirt-dresses in khaki and neutral hues) and attractive prints for making a statement. On our wish-list? These heeled brogues, a printed skirt and a colour-block clutch bag. #B1-15A ION Orchard.
You may visit Thailand for its food, beaches and night markets, but did you know it’s also famous for its fashion scene? To close 2014, LIV went on a trip to Bangkok with fashion e-tailer Zalora and spent time chatting and mingling with plenty of talented local designers. Labels that really caught our eye included Rudimentary for leather accessories, LoveBird for flirty, romantic cuts, Curated for creativity and ASV for feminine sophistication. Shop their collections online here.
Already planning your next getaway? We don’t blame you! But before you start packing, we suggest you hotfoot it over to Island Shop. Highlights include beautiful silk maxi-dresses, pants in comfortable knit fabrics, soft scarves and plenty more resort-worthy designs that will get you in the holiday spirit. Check out the store at #02-11 Tanglin Mall.
Celeb Trend: Shades of Grey
A-listers were rocking all shades of grey at the Golden Globes 2015 awards ceremony and, as you can see from how well it works on different skin tones, this is one universally flattering look. So, don a grey frock for your next night out on the town, and wear it with a smoky eye, polished skin and just a hint of colour on the lips for your own award-winning look.
