More fash on the Singapore front
Wednesday, April 18, 2007
The Gap Design Editions collection featuring Doo.Ri, Thakoon and Rodarte may have been a big hit this week in the States, but we in Singapore (where the first Asia Gap stores outside of Japan opened just a few months ago) aren't getting our shipments in until mid-May. We're also not getting any of the Rodarte stuff, whose trapeze top seems to have been the biggest hit of them all (see the whole lot here). I'm really curious to see if the collection sparks as big a frenzy over here.
Also, we would just like to say that years and years ago (although not that many years ago – I'm not that old), we used to toil down the hall from Thakoon Panichgul, when he was just a lowly fashion editor and secretly taking his now-fabled night classes to learn design. Next thing you know, he's a big fashion industry star… and we are sitting on our couch in our jammies eating waffle-flavored cereal and writing blog posts about him. Hmmm. Er. Anyway, we're always partial to his designs, just because we're glad neither of us no longer has to fetch lunch for people and also because they're really pretty.
