For a long time, I’ve been looking for clothing with simple style, that still stands out from the gambit of street wear out there right now. Recently I found exactly what I was looking for when I was introduced to the Slvstr line. The first collection styled to mock current luxury brands instantly intrigued me. And Slvstr’s “Blue Panther” ideology behind the clothing got me interested in more work from the lead designer Reggie Sylvester. To find out more check out the official site at Slvstr.com
Luxury property developer SC Global Developments has unveiled a private apartment decorated by Hermès at its flagship development, The Marq on Paterson Hill in Singapore. This is the first apartment entirely decorated by Hermès and SC Global said it will not be for sale, but to be used only for private engagements.
The spacious 6,232 sq ft five-bedroom apartment features a combination of furniture, wallpaper, carpets, fabrics, rugs along with made-to-measure upholstered items and a choice of artworks. Simon Cheong, Chairman and CEO of SC Global, said the collaboration with the Paris-based Hermès lasted for 18 months to create the unique atmosphere.
“By realising for the first time, a complete project of home decoration and furnishings, we also share with SC Global a unique experience and express our high quality values of excellence and craftsmanship in the home universe,” noted Hélène Dubrule, General Manager of Hermès Maison.
The Marq has 66 exclusive residences on a 1.2-hectare ground. The units consist of high-end bungalows within a luxury high-rise apartment setting. The development’s unique design features include airy double-volume (6.5 metre high) living spaces providing panoramic views of the city skyline and a 15-metre cantilevered lap pool in every apartment of the Signature Tower.
Apartment sizes range from 3,000 sq ft for a 4-bedroom apartment in the Premier Tower to 6,195 sq ft for a 5-bedroom apartment in The Signature Tower.
B.ez the brand is an ambiguous experimentation found at the intersection of three different, but like-minded individuals. It encompasses an attempt to use the creative mind as the vessel for freedom of expression on the quest to chase one’s dreams and ambitions. B.ez is not your father’s t-shirt brand nor is it shaking up the clothing industry. B.ez is not claiming to be a revolutionary brand that will change your life nor is it some unexplainable movement. B.ez is simply making moves. It’s not for everyone; find out if it’s for you.
The b. is the ‘action’. It means stop talking about doing the things you want to do and just do them. Be true to yourself and just b. you. The ez is the ‘how’. The mood at which to handle your goals. It’s important to always be humble in your quest for success, as this will keep you in the right circles in the future. The octopus is the symbol of our brand; it represents creativity, wisdom, and a sense of mystery. We feel it suits our endeavors favorably and we are enjoying manipulating its appearance for the sake of intrigue.
