In fashion, you follow the trends and header rows. Here’s a recap of what the fashion world has delivered lately:
A Giant Burberry Olympia Bag Visits Singapore
Our neighbors in Singapore received a rather unexpected visitor at the end of August, a huge Burberry Olympia bag lying outside the ION Orchard mall on Orchard Road. Along with its launch, giant Burberry Olympia began its journey in London before heading to Dubai and then Singapore. There’s a good reason for its larger than life debut – the bag is structured and has a crescent curve like an arch, architectural in itself. Crafted from quality leather, the silhouette curves through hand molding on a block of wood. The Olympia is available in colors like warm tan, dark orange, black, and pale blue.
Fendi teams up with Rimowa for the Cabin suitcase
Fendi and Rimowa team up again to make your luggage wish list come true. This time, the duo takes the famous Rimowa Classic Cabin with its multi-wheel system and industrial quality, and gives it that Fendi touch; leather handles, and the recognizable FF logo with a brushed effect on the aluminum case, which changes with the light. Inside, the suitcase features a black neoprene lining with the embossed FF logo as well as an adjustable divider system. The reimagined classic cab is available in a natural aluminum silver or total black.
Dior presents Autumn/Winter silk scarves
Dior has launched its Fall/Winter 2021/22 PAP collection and within it, a range of luxurious silk scarves. The trend is becoming more democratic this year and here, Dior shows us the different ways to wear it as a hair accessory or simply around the neck à la française. On these scarves, you’ll notice sketches brought to life through screen printing and inkjet printing, the works of Italian artist Pietro Ruffo. For fun with fashion, check out these filters on social networks where you can try on some of Dior’s flagship looks with its new collection of scarves.
Salvatore Ferragamo presents a new SF logo
You will see the new SF logo that has just been unveiled a lot in future Salvatore Ferragamo collections. It combines the two initials, declared by the house to represent the essence of Salvatore Ferragamo and pay homage to its founder. The logo made its global debut in the Pre-Fall 2021 menswear collection, mostly adorned on footwear like loafers and sneakers, and in various ways that include a side buckle or a contrasting color. In a win for the planet, the logo is made from ECONYL nylon where possible; a recycled fiber from fishing nets and other nylon waste, while the thread and zipper tape used are also made with recycled materials.
Coach launches its first concept store in Singapore
Coach has launched its very first concept store called “Tomorrow’s Vintage”, also in Singapore. The pop-up celebrates 80 years of Coach and has been set up in a conservation store on Teck Lim Road as a fitting venue for the brand’s commitment to restore, repurpose and reinvent – hence its name, ‘Tomorrow’s Vintage “. Old-school televisions show films featuring Coach’s famous leather restoration specialist, Debi the restorer, while bags from across the years are on display. In addition to a Coach craft bar for monogramming, customizing, and cleaning, there’s also a curated vinyl playlist to go with the vibe created by a Brooklyn-based indie label named Big Crown Records.
