artfront gallery

 Recently, I attended an anniversary party at a gorgeous art gallery. It was Artfront Gallery’s (www.artfontgallery.com.sg) 3rd anniversary party held in conjunction with Upfront Models. The art gallery was filled with stunning chandeliers, beautiful models and of course, amazing art work!

 

The artists featured at Artfront gallery are mainly from the Asian region. There are works by artists from Singapore, China, Indonesia, South Korea, Philippines and Thailand. I love the diversity of the artwork at this gallery. From the playful, brightly colored plastics and materials used by Korean artist Kim Minkyoung to the dreamy, blurred paintings filled with droplets by Indonesian artist Endro, there was so much to enjoy at this art gallery, even for the non-collector (like myself!).Here are some of the art pieces that I loved at the gallery:

 

South Korean artist, Kim Minkyoung
Indonesian artist – Edo Pillu
Indonesian artist, Endro
Singaporean artist, Andy Yang

Here are some other pictures I captured during the night:

On the night, I wore ‘Tetris’ skirt by Singaporean designer, Arclabel and shoes by Australian designers Manning Cartell (www.manningcartell.com.au)

Some amazing artwork at Artfront gallery, wouldn’t you agree! I am already looking forward to my next visit to check out more beautiful pieces!

 

Artfront Gallery is located at Li Ka Shing Library Building #B1-42, Singapore Management University, Singapore 178190. 

the influencer network | publicity video

 

Recently, I participated in a publicity shoot in collaboration with the Influencer Network (www.theinfluencersg.com).

 

In light of recent controversies surrounding bloggers in Singapore, eg. bloggers demanding freebies from merchants with threats of publishing negative reviews, the image of bloggers has somewhat been tarnished. A publicity video was put together by the Influencer Network to showcase the positive attitude and love that bloggers have for their craft.

 

The campaign hopes to encourage the local community to be supportive of the work of bloggers and to recognize the value of blogs in helping them make decisions on a daily basis. Bloggers from lifestyle, food, beauty and fashion came together for this initiative.

jewels | lust-worthy pieces

 

Pink lou lou (www.pinkloulou.com)

is the latest on my wish list of lust-worthy jewels.

So petite, fine and intricate I can wear a few rings on the one hand to make a beautiful collection.

 

On my right-hand, I am wearing the cutest silver and gold daisy rings,

bow ring and tibetan love knot ring.

 

 

Samantha Wills (www.samanthawills.com),

one of my most beloved jewellery designers,

creates the most stand-out pieces for day and night wear.

 

In my latest collection, I love the 3-stack bangle in gold and blue tones

and the ornate, art-deco inspired ‘meet me there’ earrings in white.

I also snuck in my House of Harlow

sunburst bangle in cream as I thought it would look lovely in my pic!

 

Online fashion retailer www.luxefashionboutique.com.au stocks a huge selection of 

Pink Lou Lou and Samantha Wills jewellery. Lovely as a christmas gift!

shanghai tang spring/summer 2014 | media preview

 

 

Shanghai Tang (www.shanghaitang.com), traditionally known for its interpretation of chinese culture with styles such as the mandarin collar and ‘cheongsam’ for womenswear, is set to launch a refreshing vibrant and youthful Spring/Summer 2014 range, available January/February 2014.

 

The media launch, held at the picturesque ION sky lounge in Singapore, showcased the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 womenswear and menswear collections.

 

For the women:

 

 

The floral embroidered coat (above left) from the ‘exotic garden’ collection is fresh in bright summer colors set in contrast, with a modern interpretation of traditional floral embroidery. The ‘bamboo forest’ prints in metallic colors (above right) is classic sophistication and one of my personal favorites in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

 

 

The nylon cap sleeve dress with the corset belt (above left) featuring the skater-skirt is a modern twist on the traditional ‘cheongsam’ dress. The Exotic Shadows Jacquard Pleated dress (above right and center) featuring fine pleat detail at collar is simply exquisite in tailoring.

 

 

A long sleeve white shirt is refreshed by teaming up with the ‘bamboo forest’ metallic shorts (above left). For a date night out, the Triacetate pleated dress with mandarin collar and knot lizard belt (above right) is a classic outfit with elegance.

 

 

The selection of clutches and bags from this upcoming collection are also completely lust-worthy, from the lizard box clutch (above left), jade bamboo water snake satchel and wallet (above center) and flower beaded hard clutch (above right).

 

For the men:

 

 

The upcoming ‘Year of the Horse’ in the Chinese zodiac sets the theme in the menswear collection. An adorable embroidered horse motif is featured on the bottom of the bodice of the shirt (above left) and at pocket of pants (above right). Designs inspired by horse-riding is prominent in this collection with jodhpur lace-up detail at the bottom of neutral colored pants (above left).

 

 

Cotton mix block shirt (above left) and dye cotton chino pants (above left and right) are also symbolic of the casual and youthful look in the menswear collection. Bright summer colors are captivating, bringing a welcomed freshness to the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 season.

 

Media launch: 

 

 

 At the media launch, I caught up with friends, stylist Jessica Lee (above left) and fashionista Winnie Wang (above right). I wore ombre maxi dress by Shakuhachi (www.shakuhachi.net).

 

The upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 range from Shanghai Tang is sophisticated and inspirational. It was refreshing to see a traditional luxury lifestyle brand adapting with the change in times and modernizing its collection with use of fresh color and designs while maintaining its core Chinese aesthetics.

 

I leave you with this image from the campaign.

On the beaches of Monaco, don’t we all wish we could be there….x

white leather | white hot

ochre_stripe_crop_tee_electric_eel_sport_shortHS13B-T072_HS13B-SK009

Leather for summer? Yes we thought no too until we saw the white hot leather pieces by Bec & Bridge. On the left, the Electric Eel Sports Shorts which is a slight flared sporty luxe style shorts complete with elasticized waist and ties. On the right, a simple and chic Electric Eel Pencil Skirt which is shorter in the front and slighter longer at the back. We’re converted. Leather for summer? Absolutely! Both styles instore and online now.
