So how did everyone celebrated their countdown to 2012? Dare to be different, SCAPE had organized a countdown that was the first of it’s kind in Singapore. A whole line up of spectacular performances through the night with Mando Concert by Ocean Butterflies, the Youth Concert by *Scape Talent featuring Baracuda Batucada, Brandon Lee, Dare Generation (Ocean Butterflies), Dulcina, Shirly Temple, O Dancers and towards the end of the event while the crowds are getting pumped up then came a solid one hour of non-stop party!
We would be lying if we wasn’t there but we were and it’s the most joyous time as people were seen dancing together ushering the new year, while some got over-excited and tried climbing up the stage (they weren’t suppose to) but it was all about having fun and the excitement felt on that very moment. Check out some of the pictures taken from the few highlighted moment as we enlighten you up what has gone by on that memorable night.

It’s the end of the world, baby! The Campari Calendar makes a toast to life in its 2012 calendar edition. It takes its inspiration from the buzz aroundOn December 29, 2011 / By Gracie
It’s the end of the world, baby! The Campari Calendar makes a toast to life in its 2012 calendar edition. It takes its inspiration from the buzz around the prediction that, according to the ancient Mayan culture, the world as we know will end on 21st December 2012 and enter a transformative period.
Campari’s answer to this ‘gloomy’ imaginary is to react, in an energetic and positive way, without compromises, in countertendency with the main stream. Therefore, with nothing but a blur of unknown possibilities, Campari takes a positive look at intriguing theories, and presents them visually in a series of powerful, awe inspiring photos starring Hollywood actress and supermodel, Milla Jovovich.
Set to take the audience on a stunning visual voyage, the calendar showcases Campari’s latest female protagonist in vivid shots, as she enacts hypothetical scenes about the end of the world. With scenarios inspired from modern cinematography, mythological and biblical origins, the calendar explores remarkable events from dramatic Desertification and Hurricanes to Alien Invasion and Meteorite.
Posing in magnificent couture, Jovovich successfully captivates viewers as she exudes a determined attitude, evoking power and control upon the unknown, and makes a toast to life with her co-star, Campari.
Campari takes this opportunity to celebrate life creatively with optimism and energy, encouraging people the world over to join them in creating passionate, memorable moments to remember, by raising a glass together.
Milla Jovovich comments on her experience: “As a model and an actress, this was an exciting new challenge for me, combining the skills to bring to life each of the hypothetical events in a theatrical, yet sophisticated way. What attracted me most to the project was the powerful inspiration behind it, as well as the positive approach of celebrating life with a special toast, with friends and family.”
The Campari Calendar, of which only 9,999 copies are printed, will not go on sale but will be distributed to friends of Campari internationally. But no worries as Nookmag shares with you the stunning exclusive images from the calendar.
The concept of ‘It’s the end of the world, baby!’ was created by Euros RSCG Milano. Working alongside side photographer Dimitri Daniloff on the project was creative directors Eric Loi and Dario Villa, led by executive creative director Giovanni Porro. The executive production was executed by SeaSun Production.
Let’s toast to life,

With the concept of silent countdown, *SCAPE urge youths to reflect on 2011, make their resolution for the new year, count their blessings and get ready for a brand new start.
An interactive activity will also take centre stage where each participant will receive an invitation via their mp3 to pen down their dreams and these dreams will be randomly flashed onto the LED screen as *SCAPE gesture to spur youth to live out their dreams in 2012.

Just in time for the festive season, Sup Clothing present you their Holiday Collection 2011. Apart from all the endless fun parties organized by them through out the years, these boys are here to remind you that they still mean business and keeping it street. It’s pretty exciting to see them coming out with a new collection and we sense there’s more to come, we had a chance to catch up with them and asked what’s up!
Hi Sup Clothing, it’s great to finally see you guys coming out with a new collection, why the long break?
Thank you, we are as excited as you are! Last year, our business model changed slightly to cater to the demand in haji lane, meaning we had more brands in store such that we have almost everything from head to toe in store. Another thing was that we didnt want to just create any collections just because we "have" to. This holiday 2011 season was planned in the way i would say the most proper collection.
Awesome! tell us more about this collection?
This collection i would say was well conceptualise by our team such what we want people know that we have our own culture/lifestyle apart from doing the store, having beers while working, attending shitty events and parties etc etc. Hence, derived from "STAY YOUNG, LIVE FREE". The way we want to show is by having original graphics, with each design having a simple message or meaning that when our consumers buy it, people can identify and know that they can relate the graphics to our store, us(each and every single one in SUP) if our path ever crossed. This season we also try to incorporate "Haji Lane" into some of our graphics, and i would believe that you will see more of it in the coming collections. This lane is really important to us, with our store, the people here, our customers. You can say we actually love and hate this lane.
Congratulations on your recent collaboration work with Staple Design (NYC), will we be seeing any exciting things from you guys in future and what can we expect?
THANK YOU, THANKS TO STAPLE DESIGN, JEFF STAPLE, NICO and WATERSEDGE, SAB, JEFF, ANDY, you guys have been amazing to work with! We are looking to work with different companies next year, but we cannot reveal it, keep checking our site or our social media page! Our main focus for next year would be to introduce more bands, that we feel would suit our store and not for the masses. We are working towards to make our store more lifestyle. Next year, you will definitely see SUP in house brand being more consistent, we will keep churning out good design with affordable prices, which i feel that it should always be that way forever.
Thanks to Jacky & Jackson (Sup Clothing) for giving your time off and having to answer these questions, we wish you much happier and a prosper years ahead, till then. Support your locals!
Sup Clothing Holiday Collection 2011 is now available at Sup Clothing (34 Haji Lane, S189227)

As the festive season reaches its peak, the most anticipated sneaker release of the year is finally here! Any sneaker or Michael Jordan fan will know by nowOn December 22, 2011 / By Gracie
As the festive season reaches its peak, the most anticipated sneaker release of the year is finally here! Any sneaker or Michael Jordan fan will know by now that the Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’ will be released globally (including Singapore) on 23 December 2011.
Originally released in 1995, the Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’ was last retro-ed in 2000. Following an eleven-year hiatus, the ‘Concord’ Air Jordan 11 will finally have a second retro drop.
The sneaker is packaged in a special drawer box with ‘Concord’ shoe inserts. Uncover the drawer box and you will be faced with 2 sayings – “Tinker made them shine” and “You made them iconic”. “Tinker made them shine” refers to designer Tinker Hatfield using black patent leather on a sneaker which was unheard of in those days and “You made them iconic” refers to the fact that the Jordan 11 ranks as the one of the most sought after Jordan shoes in the whole Jordan line.
A brief history – the Air Jordan 11 model was designed by Tinker Hatfield. While Jordan was still pursuing a career in baseball, Hatfield designed the shoe in hopes that Michael would eventually wear it if he returned to the NBA.
The Jordan 11 was meant to stand out with a fusion of performance and style. Taken from the world of high-end mountaineering backpacks, the cordura nylon upper gave the Air Jordan 11 model lightweight durability. Further innovation came with the use of a carbon fiber plate on the sole of the shoe that can be seen underneath the clear outsole, which gave the shoe exceptional torsional rigidity. The most visually distinct aspect of the shoe was its shiny patent leather mid and toebox. The shiny leather gave the XI what many described as a ‘formal’ look – a fact that many owners of the shoe took advantage of and paired the shoe off the court with business suits in substitution for dress shoes.
The most interesting part of these sneakers is that they were ‘sampled’ during the playoffs of the year of Jordan’s first return (1995) and Michael was not even supposed to wear them. The folks had no choice but to make it a production model and the decision turned out to be a good one.
Join the frenzy and cop yourself a pair on the launch day! Available at Limited Edt at Queensway, Limited Edt Vault at 313@ Somerset and Limited Edt Chamber at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, the Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’ will be available in men’s, women’s, kids’ and infant sizes.

Dear friends, This December, Nookmag took the plunge and has resurfaced with a refreshing new look after two exciting years! Born out of passion and fun, Nookmag hasOn December 22, 2011 / By Gracie
This December, Nookmag took the plunge and has resurfaced with a refreshing new look after two exciting years! Born out of passion and fun, Nookmag has always embraced and advocated individualism. In all honesty, we ain’t the coolest folks around and we ain’t trying to be anybody. What we possess are our very unique selves and heaps of good cheer and spirit. By wearing our hearts on our sleeves, we hope to inspire as many as possible to be comfy and cozy in their own skin too.
Exactly two years ago when Nookmag was conceived, we decided to create an identity for ourselves based on what we believe in. In opposing the norm, we went horizontal, literally. Emphasis was placed on tons of graphics for everyone’s visual pleasure. The ‘Flavours’ section extensively fulfills this role and allows readers to browse through features just like a magazine.
In our quest to reach new heights, we decided to put Nookmag through a facelift after getting some feedback. Without compromising our identity, the new Nookmag allows readers to navigate around with more ease and comfort. Graphics still take centre stage so that Nookmag remains visually appetising. For the ‘Flavours’ articles, readers can simply click on each image to enlarge for a magazine-style browsing. In this brand new chapter for Nookmag, we have also revived our favourite street-snap section – ‘Nooked’!
Every month, Nookmag will feature 18 style-savvy individuals spotted on the streets in ‘Nooked’. Check them out and remember to vote for your favourite by clicking on ‘Nook It’. The individual with the most ‘Nooked’ will receive a SGD$50 fashion voucher from us.
As we celebrate Nookmag’s second-year anniversary with this spanking new look, we look forward to sharing more exciting goodies with you! In this spirit, we toast to endless nooklicious affairs ahead!
Spread the love, peeps!
