This is the official start to our Chinese New Year series and so much effort went into the planning, shooting and launching of this whole series. In order to bring out the best in the upcoming designs and to play up to the theme, we crossed borders for our shoots and the results are absolutely stunning and gorgeous I promise.
Be prepared for a whole wide range of designs we’ll be launching for CNY this year. Expect lots of gorgeous intricate lace and crochet fabrics, vibrant florals, oriental mandarin collars and modern cheongsams, etc. Be spoilt for choices cos you ladies deserve the royal treatment.
Primrose Baroque Dress
Boasting one of the most gorgeous floral and colours ever, this specially printed piece takes on both blooming florals and the special baroque imprinted textured fabric. The result? You get the best of both worlds. Get ready to turn heads and stand out from the crowd in this stunning dress and let the vibrant colours do the rest of the work for this dress. Fabric is not stretchable at all for this dress so do size up if necessary or you wouldn’t be able to move much in the dress. For reference, our model wears size S
Shar wearing a size M while I wear size L. Do refer to Shar’s pictures and our editorial for the actual colour.
Cheongsam Playsuit in Pastel Yellow/Wine/Navy
Our very first cheongsam design ever and we decided to give the conventional cheongsam a modern twist by having it in the form of a playsuit for the fun and young factor. Every single detail from the mandarin collar, oriental button, capped sleeves, front and back cut-outs, to the gorgeous intricate lace fabric just screams perfection. The cut is so flattering that it makes you wonder why didn’t I put on a cheongsam earlier? Go soft with Pastel Yellow, some red with the Wine and if mysterious with Navy. Endless class and elegance with a tinge of edge.
We did some pre-CNY as we couldn’t wait to try the playsuit on for ourselves. Both of us in size M with Shar in the wine and me in navy.
Montmartre Lace Dress in Nude Pink/Oxblood
A remake of our previous popular Notre Dame Lace Dress in an all new lace fabric that is thicker and more structured. It’s amazing what a change in fabric can do as the thicker and structured fabric brings out an even more classy and sophisticated silhouette filled with endless elegance and poise. We’re absolutely loving the Nude Pink and Oxblood lace on white base fabric that brings out some colour contrast in the design and fabric. Both so suitable to be worn for the chinese new year festive or for your everyday wear.
Decided to go for a softer look with the Nude Pink and I love this new improved cut even more cos the fabric is thick enough to hold everything in for a more flattering silhouette. Wearing size M.
Primrose Baroque Top
We just couldn’t stop with one design for our specially printed floral baroque fabric and decided to have it in the form of a basic sleeveless top as well. It’s the cut that you can choose to wear it either tucked in or out and they’ll look good any way you wear it. Match any solid colour bottom with it and see for yourself how this vibrant top transforms your outfit.
No one could resist the gorgeous florals. Not us. Here’s Shar matching it with our new upcoming Michel Chinos in Black (more of it next) while I paired it with our Norman Tailored Culottes in White. Both of us in size M for the top.
Michel Chinos in Oxblood/Navy/Black
You should know by now that we are major lovers of a good pair of pants over at FM and we go all out to ensure that you girls should own one too. All hail the new chinos in town that is all about effortless and minimalistic chic. It’s all about looking casual smart but all dressed up at the same time. And the secret just lies in these chinos. There’s something about them that is classic, edgy, sporty, sleek, polished, tailored and fun at the same time. Wear them high waisted with any top tucked in, and you’ll be amazed by how good these pants are. And so comfortable and wearable too.
We’ve sworn by these new chinos and so in love with them. Shar wore the Oxblood with our Dakota Top (on backorder) and also the Black with our Primrose Baroque Top while I wore the Navy with an oversized sweater. Both of us in size M for the chinos.
All new arrivals are stocked in at our retail racks already so do head down to try them on if you’re unsure of the sizing. Be fast cos the last we heard, they’ve been flying off racks since we stocked them in early of the week. We’ll also be releasing extras from backorders for our Keegan Lace Dress and Alexis Top in limited sizing and quantity. And if you haven’t heard, backorders are also ongoing for our Oriental Lace Dress in White and Black and Sorority Top in White. Though stocks will only arrive after CNY, the wait is going to be worth it cos they’re all classic and basic designs that are timeless and chic.
And because we’re drawing nearer and nearer to CNY, we’ll be increasing our weekly launches to two launches per week.
