Comfort Dressing
Fuss-free styles for the week and beyond

Monday, October 31, 2016
Dress in comfort all day long with these fuss-free styles from the likes of Theory, Day Birger Et Mikkelsen, Mansur Gavriel, Robert Clergerie, Victoria, Victoria Beckham, and Casadei.
Let this pleated dress from Theory speak for itself. Quiet lines stream downwards, slimming. A drawstring detail highlights the most flattering part of every woman, the shoulders. Down below, the same detailing cinches the waist in to give your figure a womanly shape. Go full on in the pastel dream mold with a pair of beige Casadei pumps, and a Mansur Gavriel handbag in a chic undertone.
Cropped up top and billowing down below, this silhouette is for women who take fashion seriously. A high fashion silhouette, we call it. To avoid looking humdrum, pick a top with some details or texture like this Victoria, Victoria Beckham number. Pair with skyscraper heels and that pop colour bag you’ve always wanted.
Give your skin some breathing space with this look. When all you want is comfort and fuss-free styles, look to a loose-fitted top with roomy armholes and your favourite go-to pair of culottes. Tuck it in or tuck it out, you decide. All we know is that with this style, you will have one less worry on your mind.
Leather screams instant street cred in the fashion department. For starters, team a basic white top – preferably with a v-neckline for added femininity – with a pair of leather pants. Take this look out onto the streets or don a buttery soft suede leather jacket for meetings indoors. This Day Birger Et Mikkelsen number has fringe details that will set you apart from the fash pack.

Ginette NY
Moments to love

Thursday, October 27, 2016
The Ginette NY Fall 2016 collection celebrates moments. The unreal. The unexpected. The moment when time halts and all you hear is the voice in your head, your thoughts. It’s a simple moment, like many of Ginette NY’s diamond-encrusted and geometrically shaped fine jewellery pieces.
Fine. White. A girl’s best friend. The girl. Her diamonds – nestled daintily on her collarbones, the light low-key shadows casting a beautiful shroud. “My loves,” she said. The loves, we want. The moments, we love.
She turns her cheek. The tiny bejewelled square studs on her ear, dancing under the faint warm light. Hands raised, eyes half-closed. Perfectly curled lashes pointing towards unchained rose gold jewellery on her hands. They flicker and the slightest of twinkles could be heard. Surreal yet so true.
The shimmer. The beauty. The mystifying shapes of love, life, and Ginette NY. Touch them. Hold them. Lay them on your skin. These are moments of love – moments to love.

New Basics Now
Embrace a dose of everyday newness

Monday, October 24, 2016

Embrace the new and add a dose of newness into your everyday wardrobe from the likes of Victoria, Victoria Beckham, Mykita, Robert Clergerie, and Meli Melo. Because don't we all need a little something of that every day?

With perpetual sunny days virtually all year round, we are sure you would already have a stash of shades to combat those harsh afternoons. But if you haven’t got a Mykita, your stash is definitely not complete. Anti-reflective coatings, patented snap hinges, and hydrophobic nano-coatings, Mykita has the technological side of things covered for the perfect sunframes to sport. All that’s left is for you to pick a frame to suit your face.

Flatforms or slides, flats are becoming all the rage of late. Today, we look to the master of it all, Robert Clergerie, a brand whose heritage dates back to 1895. The Flavie is our choice of flatform. The new season style features super-soft suede goatskin and a strap that fastens your feet in place. In navy, it’s the perfect match to a casual ensemble for a walkabout in town.

Fuss-free is how we like our bags. And with the Meli Melo Thela, we’ve found just what we need in an everyday bag. The signature buckle closure is such a breeze to clasp open and close while the bag itself is a roomy fit for all our essentials and then some. Sling it, tote it, or hand-carry this beauty of a bag whichever way you prefer!

Victoria, Victoria Beckham has churned out hit collections of basic white tops for quite some time now. This season, the defining top in question is the plain white tee – elevated. We have come to know that a strong sleeve detailing is all you need as echoed by Victoria, Victoria Beckham’s seasons past. With ruffles a hot add-on this year, elevate your basics with the Victoria, Victoria Beckham ruffle sleeve white top.

Trophies to last an eternity

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
We have all come to know Zoccai one way or the other. Some of you may know Zoccai from our Fullerton Hotel days and remember it for its fine quality and stylised designs. Now with the addition of 2 patented techniques, Zoccai is back for an online-only exclusive.
Venice was where it started, hence the Venice collection, which proudly defies the laws of physics. Here, the robust structures of mother of pearls are deftly weaved to form soft intricacies. This by no means a mean feat. The inspiration? The famous San Marco squares, which inspired the mother of pearl intricacies – a patented technique.
With over 170 years of history spanning across 5 generations, the art of fine craftsmanship at Zoccai is pronounced. The Italian artistry displayed is top notch – without a doubt. The Heritage collection takes charge of this. Gold bands are hand-braided or hand-weaved to form delicately structured earrings, rings and bracelets.  Diamonds are then littered in stylised shapes for added sparkle. Just pure elegance in irresistible shapes.
The Elements collection explores the unity of precious stones, diamonds, and gold. Healthy doses of pavé diamonds are clasped right beside generously cut emeralds and tourmalines. Unexpected but harmoniously contrasted. Overtly glamorous but sophisticated. Who would have thought these clear tones of green would look so majestic alongside diamonds and gold?

And if only diamonds and gold are your thing, the Eterno collection will be right up your alley. The collection symbolises eternity. As the saying goes, diamonds are forever.

The other patented technique appears in the Dome collection. The winning product is a cabochon gem that is deliberately faceted at only the edges to exact specifications, a technique that is extremely difficult to achieve. The result is an unprecedented dome-shaped gem that is unique only to Zoccai.

At Zoccai, signature trademarks abound and are present throughout all collections. So take this chance to acquire them as trophies. And with that, a part of history.
