Jacqueline Loo, Irene Taniady and Yip Fang Ting a three second-year students from the Diploma in Design (Object & Jewellery) course under the 3D Design Programme at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Art & Design.

“We conceptualised “ARMORE”, a play on the French word “amour” for love, and “armour” from the military reference in English. Two pairs of accessories – a leather pin set and a silver medallion set – are fashioned to mimic the aspects of the military uniform, with the lapels and dog tags respectively. They are meant to be used as a pair, or conferred to a significant other. It comes as no surprise that the pieces identify the respective partners as either the “Best Recruit” or “Best Commander”.”
