“In the future where time does not exist, people do not age, or die. A girl finds herself piecing and sewing together the last remnants of her memory with things that are familiar to her, and wears them like skin, as she slowly loses her memory.”

The Future of Nostalgia is a graduating fashion film project by Jessica Han. You can view it at The LASALLE show exhibition 2017 which runs from 19 May until 31 May.

Filmed, edited and styled by Jessica Han, Costume Design by Hadi Hayat, Hair and Make up by Nur Syazana, Assistant and equipment by Jerry Frankland.

(from the press release)

Kult Studio & Gallery collaborates with local production house, Design & Print International (DPi), to launch a new merchandise collection. Kult Kollab translates art from street artists around the world into wearables, pushing the boundaries of art and fashion.

The creative team headed the selection of the artworks, choosing ones that conveyed Kult’s energy and edge.

“It was intensively challenging – like making us pick our favourite kids! As our database is really extensive, with full of fresh art from urban artists all around the world, we decided to select pieces that have bold colours and imagery that really pops out. We want the art to be the first thing you spot in a crowded space,” says Kult’s Art Director, Alicia Wee.

The collection features a total of seven items – three t-shirts, two dresses and two caps showing the art of Russell Ong (SGP), Russell Taysom (GBR), Kittozutto (SGP), Lee Juyong (KOR), Mojoko (SGP), Mightyellow (SGP).

The launch will take place as part of Multiply: A Majestic Playground from 27 to 28 May at the New Majestic Hotel.

YANCHA FOREVER is a fashion textile collection by Stacy Tan aka YABAI YABAI.

Stacy worked as a graphic designer for four years before moving to Japan to study Fashion Textile Design at the Bunka Fashion College. “One of the reasons why I chose to study more about Textile Design was to have an understanding about materials other than paper and to also make objects and prints by hand. My work has a lot to do with silkscreen, hand weaving and hand dyeing.”

YANCHA FOREVER celebrates rascals of all forms and ages, playing around with materials and techniques. “It is also a cheeky rebellious attack on stereotypical ideas of what textile design work should look and be like, when it can be clumsy, messy and outrageously colourful.”

The Sheer Jacket by The Minimalist Brand

The Minimalist Brand is made up of Shawn, Alphonso and Edwin. Together they started out designing minimalist wallets, launching their first Kickstarter campaign in 2014. “Fast forward to 2016, we felt that we were limiting our creative juices to just wallets; we could do more. Since then, we have been designing, tinkering and prototyping all sorts of crazy ideas and bringing the best of our innovations to you.”

Using water-resist, anti-odor and heat regulating technology, the boys are equipping the traveller with a cover-up that comes with plenty of practical features.

“The jacket incorporates convenience and cutting edge technology to ensure wearers enjoy optimal comfort during any activity in multiple weather conditions. It is highly versatile, uniquely portable, and the sheer, lightweight design allows you to fold it into a small, space-saving bundle when not in use.

Available in black, blue and grey, the jacket has an exterior made of waterproof fabric, even the zippers. It’s lined with organic bamboo fabric that has a variety of premium qualities. Bamboo fabric is breathable, has thermal regulating and insulating qualities, and contains innate anti-bacterial properties that enable the fabric to fight the growth of bacteria that leads to odors.

A zippered, detachable hood is integrated into jacket’s design that’s equipped with a sleeping mask. A hidden zippered pocket contains a travel pillow that’s easily inflated with just two breaths and is equipped with a quick-deflate mechanism. Wearers will find a pair of attached hidden gloves for warmth that fold back under the cuffs when they’re not needed or individuals can simply keep their hands toasty in the warming pockets.

The minimalist jacket is designed with eight utility pockets for essentials that include a wallet, passport, pen and keys. The phone pocket is large enough to accommodate an iPhone 7 Plus with room to spare and the pocket for sunglasses includes a frame loop to hold them securely in place. A cable opening facilitates earphone management and the jacket contains a magnetic earphone holder. A combination detachable clip and bottle opener completes the jacket.”

“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.”
