Concrete Jungle II

We’re here with part two of our Concrete Jungle series. This week we take on a softer approach towards Summer. It’s like a midsummer dream high on the softest florals and pastels. Time to embrace the inner girl in you ladies.

Mirage Maxi in Purple Pink/Blue Orange

A gorgeous display of soft tones and hues put together on this soft satin silk printed piece. A flattering halter neckline coupled with high slits at both sides of the skirting. We cannot get enough of this maxi dress. It’s an exquisite and beautiful piece on its own, nothing over-the-top and exaggerating. Definitely a classic piece that will stay in our wardrobes.

01020304

Sizing runs small for this maxi dress. Our model is 1.76m, UK 6 and wears size S for reference. Shar is a regular UK 8 and wears size M for the Purple Pink while I’m a UK 8/10 and wears size L for the Blue Orange.

Midsummer Dream Dress
Midsummer Dream Shorts

The girly side of FM has landed with the arrival of this exclusively printed piece. Think soft dreamy peonies with a whimsical vibe in pastel hues. So lovely and gorgeous that we couldn’t have it in only one design but two. Both basic wear in the form of a simple scooped neckline with a pleated skirting and an ultra chic high waist A-line shorts. With such beautiful prints, you really don’t need any complicated designs anymore.

05060708

We’re both not ultra feminine and girly girls but by sticking to basic cuts, the print and designs still made us madly in love with both pieces. Both of us in size M.

Cameron Striped Top in Cream/Black

We’re lovers of all things off shoulders. Fans of our previous bestseller Cameron Off Shoulder Top will be pleased cos we’re bringing it back in a minimalist print; Stripes. Slightly modified for a more flowy and softer fit. The new Cameron Striped Top is just pure love with its ultra chic design. It’s classy, chic, stylish and flirty all in one. We can never flaunt enough of those shoulders and collar bones of ours.

Shar and I had so much fun playing dressed up with our Cameron Striped Top. Shar chose to pair hers with our Double Flap Skorts while I chose an old but classic Back Slit Maxi to go with it. Both of us wearing size M for the top.

Concrete Jungle

Concrete Jungle is really all about our modern city. It’s all about our little country and how we’ve maintained our green status throughout the years among the giant skyscrapers. So it fits when we came across the shooting location for this week’s launch and hence, the name of the collection.

We bring back one of our favourite pop art print this week in not one but two designs to fall in love with. Our never-ending love for stripes and lines see the birth of a very flattering set; time to flaunt some collarbones and shoulders this Summer. Play also with exquisite silhouettes and lines with a brand new skorts coming your way.

Pop Art Bandeau Dress

A simple fuss free dress is all you need to bring out the gorgeous print of this piece. The popping colours and vibrance of these multi colour abstract swirls are the life to this bandeau dress. You don’t need much accessories with this piece. The print got it all covered. It’s effortless chic and the perfect dress that is bound to turn some heads and steal some hearts wherever you are.

Shar and I had very different takes with our Pop Art Bandeau Dress. Both of us wearing size M for this gorgeous piece.

Alexis Top in Pop Art

You’ll know how fabulous a design is when we keep bringing it back in different prints. Vice versa for the print by having it in different forms and designs. There’s no stopping us from letting a good design or print slip through our hands and our Alexis Top in Pop Art is a balance of both. Do some vibrance in your basic wear or tops with this gorgeous print. Plus, a multi colour abstract printed top makes an awesome top for layering underneath an outerwear. Never say no to classics and favourites.

I had so much fun wearing the Alexis Top in Pop Art by layering it with a leather jacket and another upcoming item, Double Flap Skorts in White. Wearing size M for the top and bottom.

Striped Bardot Top in White/Black
Striped Pleated Midi in White/Black

You can’t really say no or resist stripes this season. Not when they come in such clean lines and are truly minimalistic chic and stylish to wear. Our striped pieces are ultra chic and versatile to wear on their own. But when put together, they’re the main star that you can’t keep your eyes away from with the subtle classy and elegant vibes they exude with an off shoulder midi dress look. These are really two pieces that you wouldn’t want to miss having in your wardrobes.

0910111213

It’s really all about playing with different styles with these two striped pieces cos they are just so wearable and versatile with whatever tops or bottoms you throw together in an outfit. Both of us wearing size M for both top and skirt.

Double Flap Skorts in White/Indigo Blue/Black

Throw us a pair of shorts and a pair of skorts, we’ll pick the skorts anytime. Simple cos a good pair of skorts boasts the perfect A-line flattering silhouette that fits most body shapes than the former. Our Double Flap Skorts fall into this category that we love with a very flattering A-line cut at the hips and also the flaps add a tinge of edge to the skorts. Worn highwaisted, it’s extremely easy to wear and match with any tops. Workmanship and fabric are extremely top notched and premium luxe for this piece. All inner lining are sewn in a concealed way that you see in tailored blazers and we specially picked a luxe satin polyester blend for the fabric.

This is definitely a keeper for us in all three colours no doubt. See above for my outfit in the skorts in white with our upcoming Alexis Top in Pop Art. Shar chose to wear the indigo blue with our Striped Shirt while I pair our upcoming Striped Bardot Top in White with the skorts in Black. Both of us in size M.

On Track

Oh Summer. There’s nothing better than embracing the season with a long flowy maxi number, a fun loving polka dotted playsuit and more basic tops to add on to your wardrobes.

Black White Panel Maxi

Go big on black and white with monochrome prints this Summer with our upcoming Black White Panel Maxi. We had on our best halter neckline that flatters our collarbones, shoulders and arms when worn. Coupled with some paneling details down the front and a T-back design for that extra tinge of edge. The second highlight (after the gorgeous mono print) is the extra wide skirting that we specially requested for cos we can’t embrace Summer without the extra flow and swish at the skirting. Get ready to feel like royalty when the skirt catches some light breeze.

0102

We personally are great lovers of all things black and white and it’s not hard to guess how highly ranked this maxi is in our hearts. Both of us wearing size M.

Polka Dot Playsuit in Pastel Coral Pink/Blue/Black

It’s hard to resist polka dots for that unexplainable fun loving, vibrant, youthful and chic vibe. Plus it’s a staple print that is extremely timeless and easy to wear. Here in a basic playsuit of a specially chosen lightweight material that is extremely suitable for our local climate, our Polka Dot Playsuit is the top choice for an easy and fuss free outfit to hit the weekends in. Go light and summer-ish with the gorgeous colour hues.

Basic Shift Top in White/Navy/Black

There’s always room for more basic wear in our wardrobes and this one here comes in a basic shift cut that every girl can wear. In a full length of 21 inches that can be worn both tucked in or out, we love how versatile it can be when worn with different bottoms. Pile on some accessories for a more dressed up look if you want. Works either way. Best thing of all, it’s spotting the same premium fabric as our previously launched Long Back Shift Dress. Basics and quality fabrics are best when they go hand in hand.

091011121314

When we say this is one of the most versatile top ever, we really mean it. Any bottom we pair it with, goes. Shar chose to pair it with our High Waist Straight Trousers in Dark Blue while I pair it with our Gingham Checked Pleated Midi and some necklaces. Both of us wearing size M.

Summer Daze

Summer Daze is all about pushing our boundaries and breaking out of our comfort zone. It is also one of our most anticipated collections by our friends and on a personal level for the entire team as we played with a different style edit. The result is just visually and mind blowing.

Oversized Trench Coat in Ivory Beige/Dark Navy/Black

We’re pushing for the launch of this trench coat due to the winter seasons in certain countries and also so that you can get prepared for the upcoming fall season. It’s not a thick trench like our previous Editors Trench Coat but it’s good enough for a cooling weather of 15 degrees and up; perfect for the start and end of the fall season. This trench has everything that we dreamt of. The oversized effortless chic look. So much details from the buttons to the waist/hem drawstring to the pockets and the bucked hem sashes. So much workmanship details went into every single piece of our Oversized Trench Coat. And it’s one of those trench coats that you wished you bought and not missed right from the start. Mark our words on this.

0102030405070809

Measurements run big at the PTP and hips as it’s meant to be worn oversized. IF you’re not sure on the sizing to get, pay attention to the arm opening measurements or stick to your usual sizing. Both Shar and I in size M.

Long Back Shift Dress in White/Navy/Black

We know a new favourite when we receive so many requests from our friends asking for this new basic shift dress that spots a long back hem. It’s edgy, sleek, classy, sophisticated and minimalistic chic to wear. So flattering when worn that we can’t get over this basic shift number. Put on some necklace for some added glamour, if not you’re good to go too. It’s the perfect dress to be spotted in for some subtle yet elegance this Summer.

The basic shift cut just makes it so easy to wear and we had so much fun with the longer back hem too. Shar and I both in size M. Her in the Navy and me in the Black.

Gingham Checked Top in Powder Blue/Black
Gingham Checked Pleated Midi in Powder Blue/Black

We’re doing more gingham checks this week by having this gorgeous print on two very versatile pieces that can be worn as a set to look like a one-piece dress or separately on its own with another top/bottom. There’re so many styles to play around with by having them worn as a set or otherwise. The print and colour are youthful, fun and vibrant to wear. And almost any footwear matches whatever combination you have on. Not to forget the cut is fabulous for both the cropped top and the pleated midi skirt.

16171819

I chose to wear the black as a set. Wearing size L for both the top and the skirt as sizing runs about half size smaller than usual. See how Shar wears the powder blue separately with her own pairing in her own style. She wears size M for both items as she’s in between our usual S and M. Our model wears size S for the top and size XS for the skirt for reference.

Alexis Top in Stripes White/Black

Embrace the all new Alexis Top in thin stripes this season. It’s perfect to be worn on its own or underneath a blazer or coat for some layering effect. It’s going to be a wardrobe staple piece that is so easy to wear. Need we say more?

High Waist Straight Trousers in Nude Pink/Dark Blue/Black

You’ll recognise the gorgeous colours of our previously launched Norman Tailored Culottes on our new high waist pleated trousers. Nobody ever says no to a good pair of pants and we made this pair more versatile by having it full length for a more corporate and sleek look or simply cuff up the bottom leg hem to turn it into a pair of chinos for a more casual smart look. Any top goes well with it.

Checked Mate

It’s been an exciting week as we got caught in the whirlwind of incoming new designs, photo shoots and more shoots. This week we delved into the world of gingham checks, polka dots and some pop art along with our favourite basic cuts. Too gorgeous to be missed.

Sunday Midi in Gingham/Polka Dots Blue/Polka Dots Black

The classic midi dress that exudes absolute class and elegance with the short sleeves and a full circle skirting. It’s made even more chic and fun to wear with the addition of two classic prints; Gingham and Polka Dots. These are two elements that never go out of style each season. The cut and fit is fabulous. We added side pockets to make the dress more functional. You’ll just want to twirl all day long in this midi number which we got it covered with the full skirting.

010203040506

Shar and I had too much fun wearing our Sunday Midi. The most amazing thing about this midi dress is that any footwear you matches it with seems to go perfectly well any way you want it. Both of us wearing size M, me in the gingham and Shar in the polka dot in blue base.

Checked Mate Playsuit

Checks are trending on a high now that we couldn’t let it go without having it in the form of something more casual and for your fun day out. In a flattering sweetheart bustier line, we kept things simple with side pockets and a basic silhouette. Wear this playsuit like a dress (cos we made it look like one). Think fun, flirty, girly and chic. All shoes go too.

Both of us wearing size M and unintentionally, we both wore sneakers with it.

Box Pleat Top in White/Black

The perfect top to go with any high waist bottoms. Any of them. It’s minimalistic chic, edgy with the inverted pleats in front, extremely smooth and luxe with the premium satin fabric, and so versatile to wear. It goes with any bigh waist pants or pencil skirts for your work wear and any shorts, skirts of any kind for a more casual smart look. It’s all about being chic and classy. Do pay extra attention to the measurements for this piece. PTP measurements runs bigger than usual as the top is meant to be worn non-fitting. The crux to take note of is the waist measurement. It is recommended to size up if you have a fuller chest or have broader shoulders or you’ll have difficulty slipping the top on. Our model is 1.76m, UK 6 and wears size S for reference.

I’m wearing size L due to my broad shoulders while Shar wears size M and matched it with our upcoming Pop Art Skorts which will be touched on in a while at the later part of this post.

Pop Art Skorts

Add on some vibrance and colour abstracts to your bottom with this pleated high waist skorts of ours. It’s more wearable than you think despite the vibrancy of the colours and you’ll find yourself loving it even before putting it on. Throw on a basic top in basic solid colours for a safe look or do print on print (in the same colour hues) for the more adventurous you. Best thing of all? We got all sizes covered from XS to XL. Anyone can wear this gorgeous pair of skorts now.

Shar and I both wearing size M for our Pop Art Skorts. While Shar paired it with our upcoming Box Pleat Top in Black, I chose a slightly more adventurous look with our Concept Striped Top in Navy. The key is to pair it with similar colour hues as the bottom to wear prints on prints.

Florals and Lace

Florals and lace. Dreamy and edgy. Both elements provide a balance between both.

This week’s shoot wasn’t any easy for the team. We had to fight with relentless strong winds and dark gloomy clouds on top of the usual scorching sun. With the blaring signs of a potential thunderstorm, it was a miracle that we escaped unscathed from the temperamental weather and a gorgeous editorial to launch.

We’re playing with extremes and both sides of the coins this week. Different hues of florals and lace can bring out different styles, vibes and looks.

Elderflower Maxi in White/Black

Spring isn’t Spring without a good floral print. What we especially love is how both colour bases go so well with the different coloured floral hues. White is so dreamy and whimsical while Black is playful and edgy. We added our favourite side slits at the front of the skirting for a more chic and stylish look. You’ll find yourself wishing for more breeze and wind as you walk down the streets in this gorgeous maxi. Don’t say we didn’t tell ya.

Mathilda Lace Dress in White/Navy/Black

Think clean sleek lines with this gorgeous lace paneling piece. The halter neckline is so perfect and flattering to wear. So much work went into perfecting the lace and paneling details both front and back. In a thick and stretchable fabric that provides just the right amount of form and structure to the design. Last but not least, a simple and classic skater skirting that is suitable for everyone. Choose White for softness and feminine, Navy for mysterious and chic, and Black for timeless and classy.

Mathilda Lace Peplum in White/Navy/Black

We couldn’t let such gorgeous details to go to waste and the next best thing to do was to have it in the form of a peplum top that is extremely versatile and wearable. Peplum tops are highly coveted for their ability to hide unsightly bumps after a sumptuous meal. Ours comes in a cut that is so awesome that our friends have been raving about it. The halter neckline is perfect. So is the inverted V waistline that we added for this peplum that gives off an even slimmer waist. The thick fabric gives the peplum the needed structure and flounce. Skinny pants, pencil skirts and shorts all go so well with it when worn.

We had so much fun styling this peplum piece. Shar went for a minimalistic casual smart look with a basic pair of jeggings while I went for some print and colour with our Kira Midi Skirt and some playfulness with a pair of plimsolls. Both of us in size M.

Concrete Frontier

After a short hiatus, we’re back this week with our usual dose of new arrivals. We’re playing with layering and details this week. Timeless nautical stripes, ultra chic side slits, subtle crochet details with smart layering, handcrafted petals, etc.

Manhattan Maxi in White/Navy

In this spring’s favourite stripes, this maxi has everything to fall in love with. It’s a casual smart piece that can be worn on your weekends or holidays out and also when you want to be more dressed up by simply adding a belt and switching footwear. The side slits and fabulous cut make you feel like a million bucks when having it on. It’s so comfortable and wearable that it’s definitely going to stay through the seasons in your wardrobes.

This maxi was a definite favourite piece of all time for us. Shar in the White and I had on the Navy, both in size M.

Architect Playsuit in White/Black

Midtown Petals Top in White/Powder Blue/Black

Halter necklines are our favourite for its ultra flattering slimming cut. We added a touch of dreamy and softness to ours with delicately handcrafted petals details at the neckline. The result is something classy and elegant, nothing over the top. It’s subtle beauty lies in its wearability for your day-to-day outfits, no matter for work or play, worn tucked in with a high waist bottom or tucked out over a pair of skinny pants or shorts. Choose from three gorgeous shades that are too pretty to miss.

On Set II

Lots of basic wear this week and there’s nothing better than collecting more basics in that already bursting wardrobe of ours. We’re also dealing with sleek lines and cuts this week, plus a really gorgeous printed maxi dress that reminds us deeply of the sunsets in Venice. And to round up the collection, everybody’s favourite pair of skorts is back in a new fabric and improved cut. What’s there not to love now.

Chasing Dawn Maxi in Brown/Purple Pink

Chase the lights and dusk with us in our Chasing Dawn Maxi with the most gorgeous display of colours put together on this maxi number. We’re loving how the colours in each set seams effortlessly together with each other. Think soft and earthly morning rays with the Brown and gorgeous pink sunsets with the Purple Pink. We added a cross back design at the back for a tinge of edge and the results are just effortless chic and gorgeous.

Here’s Shar in the Purple Pink in size M.

Harris Shoulder Flap Top in White/Black

An ultra chic textured top given an extra tinge of edge with the addition of flaps on the shoulders. Basic wear never looked more cool and minimalistic chic than this. We’re loving how it’s so easy to wear and is perfect for both work and play regardless of wearing it tucked in or out.

I chose to match the top in White with our upcoming Albany Skorts in Light Grey while Shar wore the top in Black. Both of us in size M.

Basic Slit Top in White/Dark Blue/Black

A basic sleeveless top with a stylist twist with a small slit at the front. We’ve had our shoppers requesting us to manufacture this piece when we first used our personal piece during our shoot last year and when we had some excess fabric, we thought why not. It’s something that is simple, fuss free and chic to wear. The slit is classy and not too big so there’s nothing to worry about overexposure.

Albany Skorts in Light Grey/Dark Grey

Everyone’s favourite Sydney Skorts is back this season in an all new fabric and an improved cut. We love the twill textured fabric of our Albany Pants so much that we decided to have the skorts made in this gorgeous fabric. The end results? Something minimalistic chic with the two shades of gorgeous grey and some preppy chic. We also added side pockets to the skorts this time round for something more fun. The cut is absolutely flattering and so easy to wear.

Our Albany Skorts is such a keeper that we kept it in both colours. Us both in the Dark Grey in size M here. I chose to wear it with our Journalist Shirt which we will be releasing extras from backorders while Shar wore it previously with our Concept Striped Top in White.

On Set

It’s Sunday and it means time for new arrivals and our launch. This particular launch was one of our favourites for 2015. We played with a different studio setting that Shar came up with and the end results really exceeded our expectations. The upcoming designs in this collection are all to rave about. You’ll see flattering cuts and silhouettes, gorgeous lace details, this season’s pet stripes and basic wear to stay in your wardrobe.

Gretel Jumpsuit

We’re quite proud with ourselves on this one here. Best. Slimming. Jumpsuit. Ever. Period. The top portion is textured and provides some basic structure when worn. We made the front top flap functional so this jumpsuit actually looks like two pieces worn together. The cut is so fabulous with the smart waist cut-out which gives you the illusion of a smaller waist. Plus never ending legs, legs and legs. Everything is perfect with this piece.

01

We stick to the premium thick fabric for this jumpsuit for a good structure and form when worn. Both of us in size M.

Edelweiss Lace Dress in White/Powder Blue/Black

Gorgeous lace details are always a hit to making a simple dress shine. Ours comes with serious workmanship going on in the paneling section that creates flattering and unique lines that makes this dress stands out from the crowd. We especially love the sheer panels below the shoulders. So chic, fun, flirty and subtle sexy. Best thing of all, it suits any occasion and event you head to.

020304

This particular shade of powder blue is definitely different from the usual powder blue as it contains a slight tinge of greyish blue in it. There’s something very calm, dreamy and mystical about it that draws us to it and Shar looks particularly stunning in the blue. Both of us wearing size M while I prefer to stick to my classic blacks.

Striped Shirt

This season, stripes come out in full force and everyone is warmly welcoming its presence in the fashion scene. Simply because stripes are basic prints that anyone can wear and they never go out of style. We give the classic shirt a makeover by having it in stripes this collection. You can never go wrong with a classic shirt and its versatility. With our striped shirt, you get more variety and more play when you style your outfits.

Shar matched hers with our Maddie Chinos as mentioned in our previous post while I wear mine with a pair of basic shorts. Both of us in size M for the shirt.

Concept Striped Top in White/Navy

You know you get a good basic top when it’s good to be worn on its own or when you need some layering underneath. An improved version of our previously launched Harris Textured Top but now in jersey stripes and a more flattering cut-in below the shoulders area. It’s so easy to wear with almost any bottom, no matter tucked in or out. And both colours are to-die-for cos they’re so different in their own ways. One is never enough for basics.

Shar went for some basic wear with the White and a pair of upcoming skorts while I opted to layer it underneath a long vest with our Norman Tailored Culottes. Both of us in size M for the top.

CHARMED II: The Basics Edition

We’re back to basics this week for all the staple wear you can have in your wardrobes and attention placed on impeccable cuts. It’s all about looking and bringing effortless style and minimalistic chic to your outfits with our upcoming designs. Being versatile is key and it’s all about personal style and how you would wear the pieces separately or even together.

Stellar Floral Dress in White/Navy

A simple sleeveless dress with a flare out skirting that anyone can wear. Made extra chic and beautiful with the gorgeous yet edgy geometric floral print on the fabric. It’s the dress that you can wear it for almost any occasion and dare to be adventurous with your footwear when wearing this dress. The extra tinge of edge from the print definitely allows you to do so.

01020304

Here’s both our takes on the dress in a different way rather. Both of us wearing size M.

Kidman Top in White/Midnight Blue/Black

All hail the new V-neck basic top that got the team falling in love with it. It’s exactly what we’re talking about when we meant effortless chic. Meant to be worn on a slightly loose fit, it’s perfect when worn with any bottom. And also perfect for both casual and formal wear. The fabric is extremely lightweight and airy when worn, making it great for wear in our local climate. Wear it tucked out with the back dipped hem over a pair of shorts or jeggings on your casual days out. Tuck it in with pants, chinos, skirts for a more polished and smart look. Works like a charm without a doubt.

0607080910

We personally love our Kidman Top so much that we kept all three staple colours. Not much of a struggle there with this awesome top. Both of us in size M and I especially love it when matched with our upcoming Maddie Chinos in Navy which will be mentioned in a while.

Maddie Chinos in White/Red/Navy/Black

If you’ve been following us long enough, you would have known by now that over at FM, we view pants rather differently. We placed extra importance and pay extra attention in perfecting the cut. As the saying goes, a good pair of pants can bring you a long way and is always worth investing in. Using the same superb thick fabric from our previously launched Maddie Shorts, we decided to have a pair of chinos with a slim tapered cut. The results? Classic, casual smart, sleek, fun and effortless. It’s so easy to wear our Maddie Chinos cos no matter what top you pull over, it matches easily. Regardless of any top tucked in or out, printed or solid colours. Perfect for both work and play.

11121314051516

This pair of chinos got us in a dilemma with the gorgeous four wearable colours. We initially decided on two colours but unknowingly, we ended up with all four colours to keep. Personal favourites win at the end of the day and after all, they’re so easy to match and wear. Shar is a regular UK 8 and wearing size M. I’m a UK 10 for pants and wear size L for a more comfortable fit. For reference, our model above is 1.7m, small UK 8 for pants and wears size S. It really depends on how slim and fitting you wish to have the tapered leg of the pants fit you.
