#1: Eclectic swimwear
K.Blu founder Lyn Rosmarin’s direction for her label (main photo): luxurious swimwear and resort wear governed by an Asian design philosophy. True to form, her latest Mu.Lan collection is inspired by a heroine in Chinese folklore.
“We seek inspiration from our sunny island,” she says, “and are passionate about working with other local creatives to bring out Singapore design.”
#2: Fashion-forward timepieces
HyperGrand’s founder Leroy Xavier Zhong (above) is a mechanical-and-aerospace-engineer-turned-watch-designer; his designs are classic, yet boast innovative touches such as the world’s first graphic-art-printed NATO strap.
“Singapore as a young country relies on innovation to thrive,” he says. “HyperGrand’s strength lies in solving problems through innovation.”
