Referencing her original designs for Fred Perry, the spring 2017 collection has Amy at its core.
The collection remains rooted in the singer’s distinctive sportswear and pin-up silhouettes, each piece signed off with two love hearts above the embroidered Laurel Wreath: a reference to Amy’s tattoos.
The polka dot print references Amy’s rockabilly styling, and is used for the bowling shirt as well as the fitted cardigan and bucket bag.
Pegasus, the London based graffiti artist started collaborating with the Foundation when his stencilled piece, ‘Fallen Angel’ became an unofficial shrine for Amy’s fans. He designed the rose motif seen across the pique shirt and bomber jacket in this collection; another tribute to the musician.
Fred Perry continues to collaborate with the Amy Winehouse Foundation, making a contribution each season to support the charity’s work with young people from difficult backgrounds.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation Collection will be available at the Fred Perry Authentic Shop at ION Orchard #B3-01.
Gigi Hadid: If you’re wondering what makes Gigi’s outfit so damn chic, even though she’s literally wearing the worldwide uniform for sleeping, it’s because she looks polished ―On May 4, 2017 / By Jamie Lee
Gigi Hadid: If you’re wondering what makes Gigi’s outfit so damn chic, even though she’s literally wearing the worldwide uniform for sleeping, it’s because she looks polished ― check out the winged eyeliner, jewelled earring and high heels. No bed-hair, either. Not ready for a pyjama party? Pair your pyjama top with jeans, or pyjama bottom with a tight black turtleneck for starters.
Chanel Iman: While the thigh-high boots are a stunner, we’re really feeling the combination of a girly frock with edgy accessories more. It’s always fun to play around with two looks at once, and this baby blue lace dress iand black-gold body harness are polar opposites.
Alexa Chung: What can we learn from this masculine get-up, other than that Alexa Chung looks good in everything? If you’ve not tried this style yet, we suggest going for flared pants that cinch at the waist; this way you’ll still have the curvy silhouette even underneath an oversized blazer. Oh, we also love that she paired plaid with stripes.
Selena Gomez: Selena looks ultra cute (and very girl-next-door) with this baggy denim dungarees. It’s simple and comfortable ― perfect for running errands. While Selena paired hers with a tight cropped top, the versatility of dungarees mean you can also pair it with an oversized, long-sleeve top. Whatever rocks your boat, really!
Alicia Keys: Oh, we adore this look so much! From the geometric gold earrings to the skin-tight top with a tropical motif, Alicia shows us why you shouldn’t be afraid to push boundaries when it comes to colour and prints. There are no rules in fashion.
Halima Aden: Red is a vibrant colour that suits every skin tone, and stylish hijab Halima Aden (she made headlines for walking Kanye West’s fashion show) goes all out with the hue! To tone it down, she has layered the striking red with soft pink. We also like that the bomber jacket goes with something so girly like a flowy dress.
Chrissy Teigen: Witty supermodel and doting mum Chrissy Teigen wore this luscious golden brown dress in Marrakech, and the layers accentuate her curves perfectly. Did you notice that she matched her accessories to John’s jacket, too? Or perhaps it’s the other way around ― either way, the couple looks great! We’re writing this colour combination down in our notebook.

Multi-label concept store STAR360’s reputation as a purveyor and aficionado of renowned lifestyle and street labels is bolstered by its constant update in styles. An unwavering pillar of the dynamic store is the medley of Japanese footwear labels that include Onitsuka Tiger, Patrick and Spingle Move and ASICS Tiger. Kicking off the year with a fresh range of designs, these star-studded labels are also fronting an upcoming STAR360 event that celebrates Japanese craftsmanship (more details below).
Boasting a dedicated fan base, Onitsuka Tiger is favoured for its iconic tiger stripes that are tantamount to sporting triumph. This season’s leading range is the non-conforming Mexico 66 Paraty, which has proven its popularity with consumers seeking a more laid-back style. With the laces removed and the tongue stitched to the inside panels of the upper, the Mexico 66 Paraty approaches design with a less-is-more attitude. All sneakers feature unique motifs at the heel and enhanced suede.
The latest collection presents the camouflage print as a distinct design at the heel, with an array of colours made available. The Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Paraty retails at SGD129.
Founded in France, made in Japan, Patrick owns a story like no other. Sporty, comfortable and functional, its footwear range exudes a casual glow. Designers explore beyond their boundaries by using colours not commonly found on sports shoes and a variety of materials. Instead of being influenced by trends, the footwear label pursues a timeless style.
STAR360 has both Cornwall and Marathon collections featured at its stores. A classic retro running model, Cornwall features thickened midsoles, nylon upper and enamel-coated letter ‘P’ on the sides.
Unlike the Cornwall collection, the Marathon range boasts brighter colours and is constructed with nylon fabric. The comfort of the shoes is derived from the soft and thick outsoles. Both Cornwall and Marathon retail at SGD219.
The essence of Japanese craftsmanship is reflected in the selection of shoes by Spingle Move. Its founders have an 80-year history of making rubber in their own factory in Fuchu, Hiroshima Prefecture. Delicately hand crafted by the Japanese, every pair of shoes has its unique markings and personalities.
Spingle Moves swears by the traditional vulcanised process that it employs to manufacture durable and high quality shoes. This uncommon method involves the application of high heat and pressure, and the addition of sulphur to create rubber soles that bond tightly with the shoes.
The featured khaki green and tanned leather models are made from kangaroo leather, which is light and durable, while the white striped model is made from cow leather, which is smooth and comfortable. All designs retail at SGD239.
A Japanese lifestyle legend that fuses heritage and modern flair, ASICS Tiger continues to reinvent classic silhouettes, create new styles and collaborate with like-minded artists and cultural connoisseurs. This season’s hero collection is the extraordinary GEL-KAYANO® Trainer Knit Low – a result of an artistic exploration where the traditional sneaker is deconstructed and reimagined. It features a stretch knit upper that surrounds the foot in a custom sock-like fit and a moulded TPU caged overlay that stabilises the structure of the low silhouette. It is not all technology as the sneaker retains its traditional lace system and heritage-inspired midsole.
This spring, ASICS Tiger introduces a fresh range of colourway that includes light green (Bay), orange-red (Peach) and off-white (Birch). Silver black and silver white versions were released to offer more versatility to the range. The ASICS Tiger GEL-KAYANO® Trainer Knit retails at SGD229.
A Special Treat Awaits!
As a special treat, STAR360 is also extending a 15% discount off regular priced sneakers to Nookmag readers. From 12 April to 10 May 2017, simply quote ‘STAR360xNookmag’ at any STAR360 stores to enjoy the offer. Terms and conditions apply in stores.

Prices range from SGD14.90 for a pair of swim shorts to SGD49.90 for a one-piece swimsuit.
The collection aims to help women look and feel their most beautiful through the refined fashion sense and styling that is characteristic of Princesse tam.tam. Together with UNIQLO’s rich colour variations, outstanding quality and affordable price, the collaboration offers the best of both brands for wearers around the world. It also includes a number of additional non-swimwear items to fully complement the line-up, such as easy-going shorts and sandals.
The theme for the collection is “French Resort.” It features botanical patterns and border stripes reminiscent of summer holidays in France, where chic colour variations including turquoise blue and black are sported across the collection’s modern and enduring designs, with an emphasis on femininity.
The swimwear line-up comprises six variations, including this season’s trend of sporty high-neck bikini tops, triangle bikini tops, bandeau bikini tops with removable straps and one-piece suits in an adult design with crossed-back straps. Bikini tops and bottoms are available separately, so that wearers have the opportunity to select their favorite colour and design combinations to fit their destination or mood. Pareo and shorts are also available in the collection in a variety of colours to combine with any colour or pattern of swimwear, giving women greater freedom to express their individual style.
