Kipling will launch a collaboration with renowned pop artist Keith Haring. The collection honors the collaborators’ shared value of inclusivity, and celebrates the city as a place of discovery and
connection. Wearable and iconic, the Keith Haring x Kipling collection brings the positive energy of pop art into daily life.
“Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the
imagination and encourages people to go further.”
– Keith Haring
Keith Haring is best known for his public pop art drawn in chalk on blank advertising space in the New York City underground during the 1980’s. His bold and accessible line-drawings are recognized globally for their unique style and message of peace and love. As one of the most influential artists of his time, Keith Haring dedicated himself to creating art in shared public spaces to reach a large and diverse audience. Throughout his career, Keith Haring produced murals, sculptures and paintings to benefit hospitals, underprivileged children’s groups and various community health organizations.
The Kipling x Keith Haring Collection
This partnership is especially meaningful for Kipling who prioritizes creativity and self-expression, encouraging individuals to get out and contribute their own vision to the ever-changing landscape of the city. Incorporating the powerful artistic style and positive vision of Keith Haring with classic Kipling silhouettes has resulted in a playful collection that carves its own place in the history of pop art iconography.
“Kipling and Keith Haring value the city as a place of connection,
creativity, and discovery.”
– Denielle Wolfe, VP GLOBAL PRODUCT AND DESIGN, Kipling.

BHG Singapore continues to reinvent the retail genre with the launch of their three in-house brands – Societe, Otona Mode, and SBT. Designed by BHG Singapore’s first in-houseOn September 2, 2020 / By Nookmag
BHG Singapore continues to reinvent the retail genre with the launch of their three in-house brands – Societe, Otona Mode, and SBT. Designed by BHG Singapore’s first in-house fashion designer, Esther Choy, this marks the first time in the department store’s 26 years history that they will be offering original designs designed for young Singaporeans by a young Singaporean.
The move to hire an in-house designer is part of BHG Singapore’s aim to do more in supporting local talents. “We hope that we are able to lend greater appreciation for the potential that local designers offer and help to charter new career options for these youths within the shores of home,” said Ms Vivien Lim, Head of Merchandising at BHG Singapore.
With her ears to the ground and commitment to serve fellow Singaporean women, Esther has taken care to consider what women want and need from their outfits, from comfort, to versatility, and especially pockets.
Drawing on her previous experiences, she recognises the importance of pockets: “I’ve heard plenty of feedback from women that pockets in womens-wear are often designed without much consideration for utility and functionality, unlike the pockets in menswear that are well-constructed. This informs a large part of my designs for women. Although heavily inspired by menswear elements, my style is all about making these elements more usable in womens-wear, without compromising on aesthetics.”
The three collections cater to women from all walks of life – Societe for the modern working woman, Otona Mode for the ladies who value comfort, and SBT for the younger and more adventurous. Also keep a look out for the soft launch of BHG Singapore’s menswear label, Cool Blue. Featuring sleek lines and classic silhouettes, familiar fits are reinterpreted for the everyday.
In another first, BHG Singapore has partnered with a team of graduating Laselle College of the Arts students to conceptualise and create lookbooks for these collections. A show of support to the students who are graduating in difficult times, this opportunity offers the students an alternative avenue to showcase their talents.
BHG Singapore x Ava Gram
From 11 September, Singapore’s very own virtual fashion influencer, Ava Gram, will be embarking on a three-week takeover of BHG Singapore’s Instagram. Ava will be incorporating looks from the three in-house labels into her wardrobe and sharing how she styles them to suit her daily life.
This novel collaboration marks the first time a department store will be working with a virtual influencer, highlighting BHG Singapore’s hopes of connecting with a younger audience.
Available in-store and on BHG online, get designer quality apparel at affordable prices. Additionally, enjoy the flexibility to buy now pay later at no minimum spend with Hoolah, and get the items you want via three interest-free installments.

What you’ll find in this collection are beautiful stackable and buildable pieces that will take you from day to night, from classy to edgy, which to me is the fun thing we are incorporating into fine jewellery. And you don’t have to fork out an exorbitant amount of money for it.”

The work routines of countless people have changed, as we know it. Instead of commuting as usual to the office, many individuals are extensively teleworking or working in shifts to minimize proximity with others. Having easy access to laptops and digital devices make all sorts of tasks practical remotely, from meetings to job hunting.
Teleworking, working in shifts, or exploring other alternatives to regular commuting to the office has broadened the scope of apparel that many need to consider to stay comfortable and productive at home.
With LifeWear designed to improve everyday life for everyone, you can choose from countless smart pieces that look professional and are easy to care for, so you can zoom quickly into those work calls and job interviews.
Adopt a good teleworking routine
Just as you might have your breakfast at the same time every morning before work, dressing up for work can imbue a comfortable sense of normalcy in this uncertain period. And hey, when you look good, you feel good!
This comfortable easy care shirt has quick-drying DRY technology, which absorbs sweat and wicks moisture away from your body, making it super comfortable to wear at home all day. The wrinkle-resistant material requires minimal ironing after washing, which makes getting ready in the morning super convenient. Just grab the shirt, throw it on, and you are ready to power up your laptop and start your workday at home!
Create a good first impression in video job interviews
New social distancing norms inevitably necessitate video interviews and other online activities if you are looking for a new job. First impressions are crucial for interviews with hiring managers, so making sure your clothes look sharp and are well-ironed is very important, even on camera!
The wrinkle-resistant Women’s Rayon Sleeveless Blouse and Rayon Stand Collar Short Sleeve Blouse come with a soft and smooth texture, making them comfortable and easy to care for, even after you start your new job! Pair them with a sleek blazer to look professional for your interviews.
Take a break
When working from home, we tend to sit at our desks for long periods of time and sometimes even forget to grab lunch. One thing that health and wellness experts can agree on, is that going on short breaks to stretch can boost cognitive functions and increase productivity. To do so, it naturally helps to wear comfortable, stretchable clothing.
The Women’s Ultra Stretch Legging Pants expands in all directions, giving it an incredibly comfortable fit, so your legs don’t feel stiff even after sitting down for a long period of time. The same goes for the Men’s Stretch Skinny Fit Chino Pants – despite its skinny fit silhouette, its fabric and waist are highly stretchable, making this pair of pants very comfortable and easy to move around in.
From now to 27 August, Uniqlo would like to thank customers for working at home flexibly with them. So, they will be having special offers on their comfortable workwear, making life in the new normal just a little easier. These offers and more can be found across all stores and online at UNIQLO.COM.
