Stuff for Chinese New Year
MYSTIC OF THE ORIENT
Local fashion label Blum has released a Chinese New Year collection that features a re-interpretation of the Chinese cheongsam with fabrics such as silk and silk organza.
There are 15 designs inspired by flowers, including orchids, such as the Dendrobium Stefanie Sun, which is named after the local singer.
Blum created two prints of the iconic orchid. One is called Dendrobium in Space, a sleeveless cheongsam, while the other is A Rose Amongst The Roses, a cap-sleeved cheongsam.
With so many designs, there is definitely a dress for every woman. The collection ranges from $289 to $389, and is available at Blum retail stores.
ZODIAC COLLECTION 2017
Add more gold to your decorations with Risis' latest collection, which is inspired by the Year of the Rooster.
Risis focuses on the five virtues of the rooster - wisdom, valour, courage, virtue and honour. Each virtue is represented by a design in the collection. All pieces are handcrafted in 24k gold.
Courage is represented by a gold rooster on a pedestal that resembles an imperial seal with Liu Li clouds as the base. There are three different sculptures to represent the welcoming of fortune and wish for everlasting happiness.
The roosters are cast in pewter, and the limited edition bases are available in Sunrise Orange ($5,900), Royal Purple ($5,900) and Sky Blue (left, $25,888).
The collection is available online and in stores.
