When you want to add some affordable-chic attitude to your look, this timepiece is the answer. Courtesey of accessory label PLAIN SUPPLIES, the watch just launched on Kickstarter.
“We know it’s never easy to find the perfect watch: a timepiece that suits your individual style and is durable enough for daily wear and frequent travel. We wanted a pocket-friendly all-rounder that takes away the need to own several watches.”
Refined by listening closely to customers’ feedback over the years, the watches are designed to be versatile, durable and affordable …
“The watches come with a clean watch face and an unlabelled dial. Each of the three interchangeable wrist straps creates a different look to suit any occasion and outfit.
The watches are encased in 316L stainless steel, water-resistant up to 30ATM or 30M, made using Japanese Miyota GL15 quartz movements and come with a one-year international warranty. The three watch straps – mesh, leather and nato – are made of durable stainless steel, genuine cow leather and soft nylon nato.”

INVENTORY X TOMGIRL
Cherie Ko: “I used to go thrift shopping a lot in search for that perfect ’60s scooter mini dress. This design sums up everything that I love – exaggerated pointed collar, cinched waist, and that great mini length.” Ted Doré: “I’ve always been a fan of ’50s inspired fashion and I love the styling of vintage bowling and mechanic shirts of that era. So I wanted to create a design that had a very basic take on those styles.”
Even if you already have stacks of shirts stashed in your wardrobe, there is always room for a piece with a little more swagger. In an ongoing shirt project, INVENTORY invites creatives from different disciplines to give a spin to the classic shirt, and create a piece that meets their everyday needs. With unexpected detailing, added attitude and some styling tricks, the new iterations of the closet classic are cool enough to feel current.

When it comes to finding a Christmas-worthy accessory for your boo, you can’t go wrong with this unerringly appealing clutch bag. Splash and scratch proof and crafted from supple Nappa leather, the RFID blocking GIOVARE is finished with a pocketed interior that’s spacious enough to stow his toys and keep his cards, pens and cables organised.
The designers behind the Singapore made GIOVARE are Teddy Fernando and Febrian Pottanobu. “We both love traveling and usually carry a lot of things. We realised that we were carrying our things around the wrong way. Our stuff was always tangled and disorganised inside our bag, and even little things like grabbing our earphones was troublesome.”
The clutch bag comes in a variety of color options and is funding on Kickstarter.

Commit Omitir Concepts to memory as you’re adding their handsome accesories to your Christmas wish list. Founded in 2012 by Darren Loke and Bryan Teo, their approach to leather and all products is inspired by “its narrative and enduring principles. All patterns are based on logic and form, giving precedence to the product’s texture and details.”
Their latest collection – LIMBS – comprises a series of leather wares that have a certain something and sit neatly in the intersection of stylish and functional. The design is clean and minimal, rendered in an eye-catching finish akin to the intrinsic character of the human skin.
“The collection heralds the marvel of the human body, with each piece influenced by the actions and gestures of our daily lives, with an ergonomic approach in mind. LIMBS intends to articulate the movement of the body without restriction, by means of introducing carefully produced pieces that instil functionality and mobility.”
Be among the first to explore (and pre-order) the collection exclusively at Supplies & Co. between now and 12 November.

“To us, objects are adornments of space, just as jewellery is adornment of the body.”
There are three things you need to know about State Property. First, the label was founded in 2014 by NUS trained Industrial Designer Afzal Imram and Central St. Martins trained Jeweller, Ruiyin Lin. Second, they have dropped their first collection. Third, the objects of the collection are conceptual representations of an idea the duo were curious about: “Jewellery breathed a certain way on the body, but where did they live removed from the context?”
“This was the question the objects of this collection answered. As a substitute for the canvas of the body, they function as an alternative museum to house their counterparts.”
You’ve got it. A statement-maker’s dream ! Shop the collection online or at selected retailers.
