WHEN SAMFOO MEETS SARONG
Although Racial Harmony Day was born out of somber circumstances, we’re celebrating it with soft nostalgia this July:
Through our rose-tinted lens, we imagine women walking around in samfoo suits with tiny floral prints, mingling at the market with sarong-clad neighbours, all toting rattan baskets waiting to be filled with the day’s shopping… and once in a while, an immaculately-dressed-in-cheongsam type would saunter in with her tiffin carrier…
But, what if the samfoo top loses its demure flower-on-the-prairie feel and asserts itself boldly in batiks instead? And what if the samfoo suit parts ways with its pants and is paired with a sarong instead? The possibilities become endless! We invite you to come experience our sartorially re-imagined Nanyang Racial Harmony Day where neighbours of different ethnicities have free access to each other’s closet, swop fabrics and traditions, and emerge richer, wiser, and more interconnected!
This collection of dresses, separates, and rattan clutches will be available from Monday, 4 July 2016.
