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.

2PoachedEggs Design Studio and Anastasia By Raine have dropped an accessory collection with an interesting take on the famous fairy tale, Cinderella.
“This capsule signifies a collaboration that defies the societal views on ‘standard mix of elements and materials’. We often perceive satin as the feminine one, gold as a symbol of old, and leather being too masculine and brown. Who would have thought that these three distinctively different elements can complement one another so well? The story of Cinderella has so much of elements that inspire us in today’s modernity. The stroke of midnight resulted in a dramatic gold element on satin black elegance. The timeless and feminine beauty of Cinderella gave the inspiration of a classic clutch, this time giving it a rebel and romantic twist with the combination of leather and satin.”
