Shop 6 New Singapore Fashion Brands At The Tangs x SG50 Pop Up Store

#1: Plicated
Taking inspiration from the folded hats worn by Samsui women and the Bauhaus modernist art movement (known for its simple, structured shapes), Ng Sunita Sumawi’s designs have a distinctly feminine appeal, with pleated skirts and camisoles in lightweight silk and organza. $255 to $285 #2: Dragon Heart
Sportswear-influenced shapes + delicate embroidery + colourful Oriental prints = designer Angel Li’s homage to the Qing Dynasty. $110 to $432 #3: Peranarock
Look to this label for affordable and punk rock-influenced wardrobe staples. Our favourite: designer Sasha Afitriana’s kebaya-inspired leather vests and coats. $125 to $220 #4: Hybrid
Hybrid’s minimalistic offerings are designer Huang Jun’s interpretation of the orchid (aka Singapore’s national flower), which is why you’ll find floral appliques all over tops and skirts. $154 to $289 #5: Canaan
It’s Singapore’s glittery skyline that influences the bold, colourful prints here. Expect baggy coats and wide-legged pants in splashes of blue, red, yellow… the list goes on. $175 to $310 #6: Paredotxical
The only menswear label here, it riffs on childlike naivete (represented by the undistinguishable scrawls on blazers and pants) and the white collar versus blue collar divide in society (coat sleeves are emblazoned with phrases like “Do not hide your pain”).
