NARS - Singapore!

NARS has finally made it's way to Singapore. The hotly anticipated arrival of the cosmetics and skincare was marked with an invite only reception event at 28th Février. The venue was filled will an air of excitement which may have had to do with the eagerly anticipated arrival of the founder of NARS himself, Monsieur François Nars.  The venue was also filled with an incredible spa like fragrance due to the lovely scented NARS candles burning throughout the venue (we had no idea NARS produced their own candles, what a perfect stocking filler! *hint hint to you know who you are*). 

NARS cosmetics and skincare is available now at the TANGS Orchard beauty hall - perfect timing with the festive season upon us!

Aztec & blue

Winter is on it's way, and the dark wintery shaded and festive sparkly fashions are invading the  stores. So imagine my surprise to see this wonderfully colourful Aztec print skirt from H&M! Seems like H&M are not ready to let go of summery brights just yet, and neither am I (which may be due to the fact that we live in the tropics)..maybe I will succumb in a few weeks or so...

Chanel - Les Secrets Du Sac Singapore

I was so pleased to hear Chanel had chosen Singapore as one of the tour stops of an exclusive exhibition Les Secrets Du Sac.  Every inch of the exhibition space itself was completely Chanel. For example, the walls of the space was quilted like the quilted exterior of Chanel bags, and the interior of the mini-theatre was like burgundy leather to the effect of the interior of the 2.55 bag. We were shown the seven fascinating stages Chanel artisan's undertake in the creation of the 2.55 bag - who knew that only a female artisan's gentle hands can handle the delicate task of turning out the 2.55 bag to give body and volume to the 2.55? As we entered the exhibition, we were surrounded with flashing well known quotes from Karl Lagerfeld and Coco Chanel such as "Elegance is being equally beautiful inside and outside". We were then was greeted with a floor to ceiling image of the wonderful woman herself, the 2.55 bags owned by Mademoiselle Chanel flown in especially for the event, and also a range of vintage Chanel bags from the Chanel archives.  

Many thanks to Melinda at Chanel, who kindly gave me a thoroughly informative and enjoyable tour. The exhibition was open to the public 10th-14th November at the Chanel boutique in Ngee Ann City in Singapore
