K&Company Holiday 2018

The K&Company Holiday 2018 Collection is another beautiful set. I saw the pieces trickle in gradually in the Powerplant Mall, Shangrila Plaza, and Rustan’s shops, and each time left me breathless. I have been wearing K&Company since the first year they opened in Rockwell. It is a sense of joy and pride for me, to have a very long and continuing relationship with a homegrown brand I love. (And on a personal note, being their muse for almost 18 years forces me to maintain my weight and shape so I can keep wearing all my K&Company dresses.)

This season expect an even more elevated use of lace in their otherwise classic shapes and cuts. Kathering Cheng, the woman behind K&Company, pushed lace to take on a deeper dimension with laser-cut silk appliqués. New silhouettes include the emphasised butterfly sleeves in diaphanous materials seen in long and cocktail dresses. Colours range from classic fiery red to a delicate dove grey.

The 2018 Holiday collection was launched in the newly renovated shop in Rockwell designed by Ivy Almario. True to the brand’s identity, the new interiors are elegant and understated. The new K&Company shops have sleek brass fixtures and delicate materials such as padded walls in pale blush, a luxurious velvet couch in sage green. The curved counter is made of Volakas marble and is framed by a wall of brass cutouts lit in soft LED lights.

The evening was catered by BIZU with pretty hors d’oeuvres such as beef tenderloin, wagyu, salmon canapés topped with flower petals. To complement the beautiful and luxurious atmosphere, cocktail drinks and tea were infused with flowers as as well.

It was a beautiful evening attended by K&Company’s longtime, loyal friends and family. Congratulations K&Company!

Gingersnaps Holiday 2018

 

 

Gingersnaps Tile

 

I was so happy to have hosted the Gingersnaps 2018 Holiday Preview. It’s becoming a wonderful tradition – to ring in the holiday season at Gingersnaps. I love planning my daughters’ outfits for Christmas dinner and for the various parties we have lined up. The clothes are always so pretty. And this season is no different. Lot’s of east-meets-west inspired outfits for boys and girls.

The preview event allowed the guests to shop for the holiday collection in advance. By now the items are starting to trickle in to the stores. So you may find these pieces at your favourite Gingersnaps branch.

It was also a good time to meet the winners of the Gingersnaps Model Search. Five thousand kids joined. 50 made it to casting call. 10 were chosen as winners. To us, all the kids are winners. All the kids are adorable.

Check out some of the pieces from the Gingersnaps 2018 Holiday Collection…

This is the sweetest blue cardigan. Definitely getting this for Stella.

I’m sorry I am obviously biased when I post too much about girls’ clothes. But Gingersnaps boys’ fashion is really on point too. Loving that preppy little man outfit, complete with a tennis cardigan.
