the Outré is back in

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Those who have been reading my personal blog would know that I've been ranting since forever about Singapore not having a website that's purely about local street style. Well, my prayers are answered by James Bent.

Presenting Outré!































James is a graduate of the University of Portsmouth, UK, in English & Creative Studies. His home is now New Zealand, but he's currently living and working as a Learning & Design Consultant in Singapore, and this blog is what he does during lunch times, just after work and at weekends.

Oh ya and he uses a 5D Mark II! Jealous..

Here are a few shots by him.




























































































































I like the people that he chooses to shoot cause they are so diverse and it really shows all the different types of street styles in Singapore. I like people with the word "COOL" stamped on their forehead, and from James's photos I can totally feel the aura oozing from each and everyone of them.

If you want your photo to be taken by him, go hang around the stretch from 313 to ION. And of cause you'll have to dress your best.

Go check out his website, Outré! Support local fashion sites!

Christopher Kane Fall RTW 2010

There's something wrong with blogger's photo upload system. It's driving me mad! I've resorted to photobucket for now. Argh. I hate relying on photobucket cause of the bandwidth thing.

Okay back to business.

I love this collection by Christopher Kane. The oriental floral embroidered in leather and the lace is perfection. Love everything! From the traditional qi pao to the blouse skirt combi to the bustier dress. Marvelous!



















































Doesn't Emma Watson look stunning in this piece.

The Third Mix

Sunday, March 28, 2010

A summer friendly outfit for our "summer is our only season" country. Everyone should have a pair of brogues, they are the best. Usually I don't really notice playsuits cause I can't really wear them as my legs are short but this one is way too cute. I'm going to try them if I see them in stores.































Hello Topshop! Hire me already! *waves hysterically*

Let me know what you think about the mix!

Igor Karkaroff

Wearing this tee inspired by the Igor + Andre one and hence the title. I'm a Harry Potter geek and I'm proud of it! But I don't really like the character (Igor Karkaroff) though, cause he always look so dirty and perverted (towards Viktor Krum) and his teeth are gross. Okay enough HP nonsense.

Remote gone wrong.


























































































Love my necklaces.

I know I've been pinning up my hair a lot. Can't blame me, blame the weather! It's so freaking humid thus I've been sweating like mad and therefore unsightly fringe.

HELP!

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

OMG! I need help! I'm so torn. I'm deciding between these 2 pairs of shoes.

Acne Atacoma Wedges in MY SIZE!




















Givenchy Jelly Flats. I saw them at On Pedder in pastel blue, yellow and pink but I can't find any images online. This is the white one but I prefer the pastels more.















I NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK PEOPLE! SUGGESTIONS PLEASE! COMMENT! DON'T BE SHY!

Shoes Fall RTW 2010

I know I know. There's no label called Shoes but this post is only about shoes. Cause I only noticed the shoes and not the clothes for these 3 labels.

To me, shoes are like art pieces. It's not just something you put on and walk on the streets with. It's for us to admire and marvel about the structure, the design, etc. I confess, I like to look at my shoes when I'm sitting down. Hehe.

Lanvin. I so love the asymmetrical heels! But looking at it, I can feel blisters on my feet already.























Prada. Very renaissance and I like the colours.
















Proenza Schouler. Oh my favourite! The hoof like heels, the PLATFORM, the buckles, the materials and the embellishments. Enough said.

Homosapien

Monday, March 22, 2010

I can't decide what to type for the title cause I was wearing 2 different type of prints and 2 different animals as my accessory. So I'm just going to focus on the person wearing all those stuff. Me, a homosapien.

For those who don't know me personally. I'm only 161cm or 5feet 3inches. So I REALLY need those heels.  I love the animal print cardigan and heels I got from Topshop on sale.

Balenciaga Fall RTW 2010

Even though the colour palette is almost the same as their Spring RTW collection, I still love it. They use the same colours to create something for a totally different season. Knit wear replaces the bodycons from last season. I'd love to w one of those knit dresses.

Oh the shoes. It's so many things into one! Heeled loafers, brogues and oxfords with chunks of plastic here and there, pieced together by different material. GENIUS!

Ahh. Still feels like spring doesn't it?

The Second Mix

Sunday, March 21, 2010

This time round, the outfit I came up with is more Summer-ish with all the nudes and florals. Hope you like it!































I've given up trying to infuse other brands as well. I'm a Topshop freak. Can someone contact Topshop and demand them to hire me as their Style Fix columnist already?

Just kidding.

Richard Nicoll Fall RTW 2010

I admit! The only time I saw Richard Nicoll's collection was when he did a collaboration with Topshop and I love it so much. But this time round, I wanted to see what was his ready to wear collection was like so I went to *click click click* and now I'm a fan.

I am so loving the whole effortless but still looking great look.

The over-sized sweaters, so me. Those satin tunics are so delightful with the woman and the red lipstick. The dresses are nice as well, looks like origami. Tao's wearing them, figures. Did I mention how much I love those long flowy skirts? If I had one of those, I'd wear them everyday!

FrüFrü & Tigerlily Opening x 12.03.2010

I went to Blackmarket last Friday for the opening party of FrüFrü & Tigerlily. They launched their 4th collection Like Wolves as well. I left early cause I had to be somewhere else at 8pm so obviously I was late for that cause I didn't want to leave. It was like pulling a kid away from a candy store. I heard that the crowd only poured in at 9pm so I kind of missed everything. Boo.

No matter, I still had a great time meeting the 3 awesome ladies who started FrüFrü & Tigerlily, mingled with some people there and took some great shots as well.

Enough said. Check out the photos.

Blackmarket!





















My friend, Rochester, was there with me.

Oh ya, did I mentioned that they were serving chilled beer to guests?! If only I wasn't driving..





















Awesome shoes spotted!





















Remember the Mickey Mouse Leggings Guy from Zouk Flea? Meet Shawn, he was there as well (obviously), we chatted a bit and apparently he used to work at Blackmarket. I took a sneak shot of him.
