For all New York Virgins

Honest Tee by Threadless.

More vintage shopping in Singapore

The Beatles dress

I absolutely love love love Gee Wee Goes to New York. Dresses are cleverly named after old songs and go for S$150 (also in USD) and they are available at the Swirl showroom.

For international buyers, I love Chelsea Girl for their vintage Missoni, YSL and Pucci, Cats Pajamas for their extensive collection, such as this Ivory graduation gown first worn in 1906 as a graduation gown, and Ballyhoo Vintage for their shoes and gloves.

Ashley Isham, I heart you

What with all the school-esque suspenders, this one from Ashley Isham (Singapore's very own, mind you), with a eclectic oriental touch just blew me away. It's pretty, it's pink and it looks so beauutiful. I heart Ashley Isham :) More feminine pieces from his S/S 06 show at Vogue UK.

Art Deco is back

YSL 1965, Piet Mondrian

We all should already know that Art Deco is huge for Spring, as seen from Missoni, Donna Karen New York and art-based fashion brand C-Neeon. Influences from Poiret, creator of streamlining has been seen from the vision of short sheaths that were seen on the runway. His eye for all things oriental has also been revived these few years and is especially strong in S/S 06. More on that later. Meanwhile, all this brought to mind one of the most influential art deco style dresses by YSL in the 60s, the one inspired by Piet Mondrian's block prints. Today, we can still see variations of that print in furniture, accessories and wallpaper even. You can buy a replica dress here for $285. I would.
