We put together portraits of some of Singapore's most fashion-forward households - actual of self-defined - in Spring/Summer 2018's most vibrant yet comfortable looks. #MyFamily indeed.

The Seahs

From left: Russell in cotton blouson, matching pants, leather shirt, and leather sneakers, Fendi, and cotton bucket hat, Burberry. Rover the dachshund in sweater, Thom Browne. Sheryl Teo, Russell’s flight attendant wife, in lace gown, Gucci. Charlie Rose Ong, Charmaine’s elder daughter, in cotton dress, leather Mary Janes, and matching tote, Gucci, and acetate sunglasses, Dolce & Gabbana. Christine in cotton toga dress, Stella McCartney, and satin sandals, Stuart Weitzman. Philip in cotton shirt and polyester pants, Issey Miyake, and leather Oxfords, Gucci. Charmaine in tweed shift dress, and plastic and leather boots, Chanel. Dahlia Jaymes Ong, Charmaine’s younger daughter, in cotton T-shirt, Dolce & Gabbana. Derek Ong, Charmaine’s husband/co-founder of Elementary & Co., in sequinned wool jumper, denim jeans, and leather Oxfords, Gucci.

An ability to look preternaturally, effortlessly chic  seems to run in the family of Charmaine Seah-Ong (second from right), co-founder of branding agency Elementary Co. and member of the Female Collective – from her charismatic parents Philip and Christine (both middle) to her first brother Russell (extreme left), who recently left the creative industry to become a financial adviser. Here they are in the senior Seahs’ Telok Kurau bungalow – de facto weekend hangout and venue of several gatherings that have resulted in visits from the police for noise complaints – with their spouses and Seah-Ong’s daughters. Missing from picture: second brother Brandon, who works in fashion in New York, and youngest brother Darryl, who’s studying in Vancouver.
