Feature: StreetPeek Singapore

Fashion blogs can be undeniably dull on many occasions, it’s been a few years now that fashion blogging and street photography have taken the internet by storm. Due to the sheer amount of all this similar content, it can be easy to lose interest in this type of work.

Street fashion photography highlights the everyday person from around the globe’s influence to trends and what retailers want to sell us. A good photographer can produce fascinating exhibitions of numerous people’s ways of self-expression.

My good friend turned Instagram celebrity John Tan doesn’t have the word mediocre in his vocabulary. He is talented enough to produce instantly iconic photographs of impeccably stylish people he encounters on the streets of Singapore. His work has been featured in various exhibitions and websites including internet giant Buzzfeed.

His blog ‘Streetpeek’ hasn’t been updated in a while partially due to Asian study problems but his Instgram feed is alive and kicking. His work is definitely a cut above the rest and I would really recommend checking it out. While the world may know him as a savvy lens genius, I have a collection of beautiful but perhaps, slightly less glamorous memories with him. *Distressed animal noise*

W: Sifr Collections

https://i2.wp.com/cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0038/8292/products/SS12-Fits-133_grande.jpgRecently the Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer Clothing Lines by Sifr was brought to my attention. There are for sure some beautiful pieces of fabric here. According to their website the most recent collection available to buy online is named ‘Monsoon’ and takes inspiration from southeast asia and the colours of blue and grey present during the monsoon season. The brand is relatively recent having been incarnated only in 2008. Originating in Singapore (where I may hopefully end up in next year) and the clothes currently being produced in Indonesia, the brand offers western style clothing with distinctive asian twists. The Fabrics are sourced from across the world including Thailand, the UK, US and Japan. All this information can be found directly from their website.

So to start on the clothes, I have a particular favourite. The piece above, a ‘Rib Extended Throw’ made from 100 percent cotton. It is half robe half shall, yet looks much more elegant than your usual comfort wear. This is from the Spring collection but is still available for purchase now.

The knitwear on offer brings a slightly Gothic flavour to the collections. Mostly in black yet again there are small twists and features which come to attention when looking closer at the clothing. Perfect for casual wear and for relaxing the appearance of those more formal items in the wardrobe.

The have also recently released a new line of shoes, the detailing in the first two on the bottom row of images look really impressive and indeed smart. Some of the shoe designs look like nothing you would find on your average British High Street.
