20BYTWO is happening this very weekend at at Red Dot Museum, Singapore! We wrap up our designer roundup with the last batch of fashion creatives you'll be able to meet and make purchases from at the two events in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
Striking a balance between tailoring with a masculine edge and soft, frilly femininity, AL&ALICIA deliver clothes that capture the current mood in fashion - fun, light, precise, and extremely versatile so personal styling takes center stage.
The newly debuted collection drips with nostalgia, both in the use of childhood as a theme (oversized coats, matching separates, graphic T-shirts and printed flippy skirts) as well as that unmistakable touch of the 90's in the iridescent silver pieces, denim, and plaid.
This Johorean label is all about modern classics. In fact, the current collection to be presented at 20BYTWO is full of the proverbial staples-with-a-twist. Take the simple tunic shaped tops in Fall favourites navy blue and rust with caged effect short sleeves. Paired with hefty high-waisted shorts, they're fun yet immensely polished, the way the Armoire girl always is.
Joe'a show at Last year's MIFA was a revelation to me. Monochromatic red and black ensembles were put together from sheer shirts, draped vests, tunics and coats in a relaxed fit and leggings for men, paired with platform dress shoes.
Having designed since entering fashion school in 2007, the designer's aesthetic has remained avant garde and androgynous, exuding postmodern vibes in the strong visual references and underlying simplicity.
A multilabel online retailer of fashion and lifestyle items with a curated mix of designers from all over Asia, H'muse stocks a variety of styles that is not limited to a certain style point of view. So you'll find sporty dresses, tribal inspired blouses, luxe hi-low hemmed tunics and kooky carousel printed linen cardigans in just one site. We're psyched to see what they'll be bringing to Publika when the event hits KL next week!
-J-A-S-O-N- This cool label for guys who favor a street inspired bold styles is named for an imaginary muse that informs the brand's aesthetic. And from what we can derive from the clothes this season round, Jason likes street wear with a heavy doses of classic tailoring.
Harem khakis, neutral leather pants with a pop of orange, and an otherwise classic white button up but with a dose of checks in autumnal shades are among the mix that make for an effortlessly rad collection.
SKYE by Ana Liew revolves around dresses - sheath, toga, column, you name it. The current collection "Indian Summer" is a true resort mix of bright and bold caftans, gauzy cover-ups, and bright, clever convertible dresses. Beach bums should look out for the jersey caftans that go from early strolls on the sidewalk to an evening luau in a heartbeat.
If glamour is what you want, Justin Yap is the one to talk to. Ever since he snagged the Best Evening Wear award at MIFA 2005 while still in fashion school, Justin has been known chiefly for his skill with dramatic, beautiful evening and cocktail dresses.
Whether it's a full length, empire waisted teal and antique gold confection of dreams, or a dusky printed toga dress with pleats like a waterfall, they're all made for the woman who wants to makes a real entrance.
