From up-and-coming designer Simone Rocha to casual footwear label Superga, here are three brand collaborations that’s worth a look-in.
Weekend Max Mara Liberty Project
Who: Max Mara’s diffusion line partners English textile brand Liberty of London on a 37-piece capsule collection featuring the latter’s signature micro-floral prints. It’s on everything from vintage-style cotton poplin dresses and blouses to stretchy gabardine pants and sneakers.
Where: Max Mara’s ION Orchard store and Weekend Max Mara, Level 3 Takashimaya. $469 – $789
Simone Rocha x J Brand
Who: The Irish-born, London-based designer teams up with the American jeans label and liberally applies ruffles onto dresses, skirts, bomber jackets and pants (all of which are made of denim). And don’t expect them to come in typical denim-blue washes; instead, the collection dyed pieces in sweet pastel pink, bold red and black.
Where: Club 21 Online, from US$324 (S$430) for a pair of cropped boyfriend jeans to US$815 (S$1,080) for a dress.
Rodarte x Superga
Who: Footwear label Superga (which previously worked with Italian diffusion label Versus Versace and British designers Oliver Spencer and Giles Deacon) now adds another notch to their list of cool designer collabs by tying up with American luxury label Rodarte. The creative minds behind the brand – sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy – have updated the sneakers’ designs by using mesh and snakeskin for an edgier, more fashion-forward appeal.
Where: Club 21 Online, available next month (prices unavailable)
