“Opposites attract” is a phrase that everyone is familiar with, especially when it comes to love. However this spring, Staple celebrates opposites by bringing traditional and modern together in its Spring 2014 collection.
Think of sportswear meeting mesh nylons, patterns like paisleys and toile, and yarn-dyed jerseys, all put together for a reinterpretation on vintage patterns into sports silhouettes, making the collection stylish and easy-to-wear.
Staple’s Spring collection also ushers in new collaborations with Dave White, a contemporary British Artist, and Jack Stocker, a young talent from Brighton UK who’s been recognised for his minimal, iconic sneaker illustrations.
This collection features White’s take on the pigeon and his stylized brush strokes. This collaboration also takes iconic sneakers like the Jordan 1s, the Air Max 90s and the Staple x Nike Dunks and puts them onto graphic tees that are as simple and minimal as Stocker’s aesthetic.
In addition, the second delivery of the collection will include a polarized, laser-etched Knockaround Sunglasses collaboration that features the signature Staple colorway of grey and pink.
Staple Spring Collection is now available at Reed Space Singapore, 100 Beach Road Shaw Tower #01-50.

The Simpsons premiered in 1989. Yes, that was 25 years ago (!!!) and yet, we’re as crazy about them as ever. So crazy, that brands are declaring their love for the animated series on apparels and footwear.
LA brand Joyrich is one of them. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Simpsons, Joyrich teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation to combine street style and classic animation. This means another colourful and playful collaboration that reflects their casual-rich street aesthetics. Look forward to a mash up of Bart Simpson graphics and 90’s hip hop style!
Joyrich is not all about street apparel though. Another range from their S/S collection takes a leaf out of chic Parisians and the city’s culture. It is a mixture of high-end, Parisian style with American 80’s and 90’s silhouettes, featuring bold, pop-inspired prints with various infused elements, fabric, and eras. From floral and cherub printed mesh, to sports inspired high-end athletic wear, the “casual-rich” inspired collection is sure to have something for everyone.
Another brand known for its printed apparel is HUF, a brand made by skateboarders and for skateboarders. The brand revolves around the skateboard mentality and the vast array of countercultures that parallel it. Taking on the classic American craftsmanship, their Spring 2014 range integrates material and construction inspired by those specific garments that have endured the test of time, resulting in a product sufficiently suited to handle the abuses sustained by skateboarding.
Accompanied by casual graphics and slogans, HUF offers a unique range that reflects sophistication while simultaneously incorporating that certain nonchalance so commonly associated with skateboarders and artists alike.
Both Joyrich collections have been launched and are currently available at Actually, [email protected] #04-06 while the HUF Spring 14 collection will be launched sometime next week.

Avey Tare, member of experimental psychedelic band Animal Collective, is presenting his debut album by Slasher Flicks. The album, called Enter the Slasher House, is ready to be released on April 7th 2014. No, this is not a Halloween soundtrack – it’s too early for that anyway!
According to Domino Records, it’s a reflection of the musicians “reinventing sounds they’re already skilled in making, sounds that as Avey Tare says, are not only regionally unrestricted but that ‘come from a place that’s not human’.”
The band, made up of singer Avey Tare, keyboard player and singer Angel Deradoorian (of Dirty Projectors, Deradoorian), and drummer Jeremy Hyman (of Ponytail, Dan Deacon) composed the the eight songs on acoustic guitar.
Uniquely its own “jazz power trio,”Slasher Flicks produced and recorded the songs live at the Lair studio using only minimal overdubs; the live sound being key to Slasher Flicks’ spooky dynamism.
Songs you can look forward to are:
1. A Sender
2. Duplex Trip
3. Blind Babe
4. Little Fang
5. Catchy (Was Contagious)
6. That It Won’t Grow
7. The Outlaw
8. Roses On The Window
9. Modern Days E
10. Strange Colores
11. Your Card
While their sound is monstrous and there are nightmarish moments peppering the lyrics and melodies, Little Fang’s clean guitars, soft everything and special smoke called “PYT” blown into the tape machine shows off spirits conjured from sweeter worlds.

Marco Polo is about two blind friends who reacquainted after death. They quickly
discover that they are both still blind and proceed to attempt to figure if they ended
up in Heaven or Hell. Amidst the uncertainty, they begin to understand what it is to
be lonesome, fearful and utterly lost. The friends attempt to recapture the emotions
invested in the lives of the living and within oneself. Eventually, it is about hope, and

Jack’s Hit returns to Loof with a special bass edition on February 22! This bass edition features three DJs with their distinctive bass-heavy style coming together to give you the bass (best) night ever.
Headlining the night is Darren Dubwise. A veteran DJ in his own right, the D has played everywhere from major club nights at Tanjong Beach Club to Zouk and festivals, such as the Good Vibrations Festival and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival here in Singapore.
If one basshead isn’t enough, there is Zushan Benny- the resident DJ at Art Bar, The Butter Factory (and one-half of electronic duo O$p$)- as well. Zushan is famed for his floor-filling sets mashing big subwoofer sounds with R&B and UK garage sentiments between the drop.
Completing the line-up is Jaydah from all-girl collective Attagirl! and homegrown label Phyla. A graduate from the 2012 FFF Girl DJ Bootcamp, Jaydah’s bass style is more towards the deeper and immersive spectrum to feed your heart and soul.
Jack’s Hit is happening on 22nd February, 9pm at Loof #03-07 Odeon Towers Extension Rooftop, 331 North Bridge Road. Entry is free.

Front Row is proud to highlight Spring/Summer collections from new and existing brands. Each brand has been specially curated globally with an eclectic mix of different styles.
A brand that aims to highlight the fundamental importance of clothes making, Biro clothes are made entirely in Japan and traditional kimono dyeing methods were used to give fabrics the richness of the natural indigo dye.
In its debut collection, basics made with exquisite material and elaborate manufacturing techniques bring about a look that is clean, simple and pure. Precise technical handling such as using vintage TSURI-AMI machinery gives a softer and more responsive fabric similar to hand knitted. Main colours in this collection include black, white and blue.
Since his beginnings in 1991, Christophe Lemaire has been through a long fashion road, from being appointed artistic director of Lacoste’s ready-to-wear in 2000, to being the artistic director of fashion giant Hermès women ready-to-wear in 2010.
His latest collection for women is chic and tasteful, playing with neutral range of beige and white. Convertible volumes and Maoist blousons, an alphabet of pockets Asymmetrical capes of urban heroines are seen.
In Spring/ Summer 2014 Men Collection, Christophe Lemaire presents an essential and bright wardrobe for every day life. Featuring silhouettes that are light, sharp and generous volumes with numerous pockets. Colour tones in this collection gear towards black shades, cinnamon and vintage postal-cards colours.
Cy Choi’s 2014 SS Collection brings about Deconstruction, where wool canvas is used inside of men’s classic jacket. Its rough and stiff texture is applied to the lapels or the waistbands, which are on the surface of the garments. The facing on the surface of the garments and out-pockets/ out-zippers with the protective film is also deconstructive.
White, black, dark grey and melange grey, which are signature colors of Cy Choi are used in this collection.
KANG. D, a Parsons Design School graduate, is the brainchild behind D. GNAK and has carefully crafted the image of the brand bringing innovation and style together.
Specialising in tailored men’s clothing with twisted details, avant-garde silhouette and achromatic colours, the brand’s collection for this season takes inspiration from “Men in Black” where the philosophy is the contrast between projected and personal self – how the seemingly unsuspecting can turn out the complete opposite.
Odd lengths, drapes and sharp asymmetric layers in a strictly monochromatic theme are seen in this collection.
Established in 2012, Etudes represents the experiences of the founders, Aurelien Arbet and Jeremie Egry, and spontaneity is central to their every collection.
In this SS 2014 collection, bold and psychedelic hues with highly contrasted theme take the stage. The Internet and globalisation is an apparent subject of their design. Wide, loose cuts also dominate this collection in the wide selection of tops and jackets as well as the famous Etudes Hat.
Being the first Korean to present at New York Fashion Week, Bumsuk Choi’s General Idea is one of Korea’s best.
The SS 2014 collection is one where high-end streetwear meets futuristic sport chic. Fabric mesh, metallic, reptile, leather, bold lines are dominant throughout but the focal point is definitely the outerwear; from the hoodie to the bomber jacket that is re-imagined in all sorts of colourways and combinations.
Front Row is available at Raffles Hotel Arcade #02-09, 328 North Bridge Road.

There are two things we love about Lazy Oaf, if not more: their crazy prints and consistency. A crazy consistency! We can always expect good vibes from Lazy Oaf, and this collection is no different.
Taking ques from the 50s rockabilly girl (quiffs and all) and the 90s indie no-nonsense girl, Lazy Oaf’s women’s collection is an exciting mixture of bold blacks, whites, and reds and bright pinks and their usual candy colours (that’s two more Cs to add to the What We Love About Lazy Oaf list!).
The range is a riposte towards branding. “Nothing” and “Pizza My Mind” texts conquer their tees, while two-pieces and hot jalapeno prints make up the rest of the collection. Look out for the full-length Naughty Pupils eyeball dress and Watch Yourself crop sweatshirts too.
The Men’s collection takes on a similar nonchalant attitude with abstract prints and big graphics, giving you both bold and minimal pieces.
The range includes subtler pieces such as the banana print A-peeling shirt, showcasing a more simplistic approach to design with repeat patterns and tailoring.
The Lazy Oaf Spring 14 collection will be launched exclusively at Actually, [email protected] #04-06, in February and price ranges from $55 to $165.

This year’s collection is a combination of nature’s intense colours and the label’s signature range of everyday products.

Fictive Fingers design with functionality and durability in mind to ensure their stylish pieces withstand the test of time and trends. This extends to their materials, and this collection’s core essential is the Furoshiki range that embodies the ethos of the sister duo team behind Fictive Fingers.
Hani and her sister Aisah are big fans of Japanese are and craftsmanship and were drawn to the functional aspect of the Furoshiki. Though the Furoshiki cloths were originally seen to be ordinary, co-founder Hani Dalduri ensures that the Furoshiki, like the rest of their product range, are appreciated just as much for their beauty as their use value. “When someone purchases a Furoshiki, he or she owns the entire art piece, the full original print that is unique on its own, as oppose to only owning a portion of it when purchasing other products,” explains Aisah.
The Spring 2014 Collection also includes statement cushion covers and charming pouches that come in three sizes to hold a multitude of daily essentials, from beauty products to an iPad, for the ultimate 24/7 accessory. Marrying simple, traditional construction methods with precise workmanship, these products give prominence to the sister duo’s eye for detail.
