#1: Rocket x Lunch
The sister label of South Korean brand Among (which is also available at Robinsons), Rocket x Lunch is your go-to brand for cool, colourful yet very wearable ready-to-wear pieces and accessories with an edgy, streetwear slant. So expect to see oversized sweaters, graphic tees and more.
For its most recent Fall/Winter 2017 collection, the brand emphasises on oversized coats and bombers, sweaters with ultra long sleeves and interesting-cut denim pieces that will elevate any look. What else we love? The way the brand uses a variety of brighter hues such as pink and purple, which are colours more associated with the springtime. So if you have been prepping for your year-end winter getaway and have yet to find that perfect coat or jumper (you name it) to bring along with you, here’s a brand to consider getting it from.
#2: Fredrick Packers
A backpack is essential when travelling, especially so if you’re doing something a lot more adventurous than scouring the city finding for the best sales and buys. So if you are planning a camping trip, a hike or even a city tour, then you need to get one of these bags from Japanese brand Fredrick Packers. Specialising in bags, the brand has expanded its repertoire with a huge range comprising of totes, messenger bags, duffel bags, backpacks and the It bag of the moment, the fanny pack, to cater to almost every occasion.
Besides its functional yet stylish design, the brand places importance on the materials used to make its products. Each bag is made with nylon and carefully hand-sewn to ensure that it is comfortable for every user. With impeccable craftsmanship and a balance between aesthetics and functionality, it’s time to put this label on your radar.
