UNIQLO Launches A New Line Of Pokemon T-Shirts, Available In Singapore From 24 June!

23 May 2019 by Chew Hui Ling

It seems like the Pokemon frenzy is still going strong!

Thanks to the recent box office success of Detective Pikachu – which unknowingly ignited a renewed love for the furry yellow sleuth in Pokemon fans old and new – it’s of no surprise we’re getting news of merchandise drops every other day. Well, the inner Ash Ketchum wannabe in us certainly ain’t complaining, and if anything, this just gives us more reason to buy ’em all.

The latest name to join forces with the mega franchise is UNIQLO, who will be launching a new line of Pokemon-themed graphic tees featuring award-winning designs from its annual UT Grand Prix contest. Over 18,000 entries from fans all over the world were submitted, but only 22 shortlisted designs will make their debut on UNIQLO aisles.

Nabbing the top prize is China’s Li Wen Pei, who designed his Gyarados-inspired shirt using the “totem style” to portray its “evolution from weakness to mightiness”. However, he was later disqualified. Other notable designs include a Pikachu chilling under the tree (in this case, an Exeggutor), a Ditto in soda form, and Team Rocket trying to catch a Pikachu doll in a claw machine. How can you resist not getting these adorable tees?

Scroll through the gallery to check out some of our personal favourites!

The UNIQLO UT Grand Prix 2019 T-Shirts, retailing at $19.90 for men/women sizes and $14.90 for kid sizes, will be available at all UNIQLO stores and UNIQLO.com from 24 June 2019.

Although there’s no sign of Elmo and gang for this time round, loyal KAWS aficionados will still be glad to know that his beloved COMPANION and BFF characters will be making appearances in his designs.

UNIQLO KAWS SUMMER

Besides a curated selection of T-shirts for both adults and kids, one can also take home specially-designed tote bags to complement your KAWS-ready outfit.

Take A Trip Back To The 80s With H&M's New Stranger Things Collection

10 May 2019 by Chew Hui Ling

The third season of Stranger Things is almost upon us! As we get ready to embark on our adventure back to the mysterious town of Hawkins on 4 July, H&M is kickstarting the countdown with an all-new collection inspired by all things Stranger Things.

Arriving in H&M stores and online from 12 June onwards, the global clothing retailer has teamed up with Netflix to launch an 80s-themed capsule collection set around the fictional community pool – starring Hawkins’ very own Billy Hargrove (played by Dacre Montgomery) as the face of the campaign.

H&M Stranger Things

A playful take on the show’s Upside Down, the unisex range features an assortment of summery prints and retro silhouettes that would be great additions to your beach-ready wardrobe – from vintage graphic tees to floral rompers, lifeguard swimsuits to matching red swim shorts. There are also poolside accessories such as an oversized visor, a mesh baseball cap, pool slides and some statement sunglasses to get you covered for a day of fun in the sun.

If you need more reason to cop it, some of the pieces in this collection will also be worn by the cast in the upcoming third season so that’s something to look forward to.

Scroll through the gallery for a sneak peek of the collection!

The Stranger Things collection will be available exclusively at H&M Orchard Building and VivoCity as well as on hm.com from 12 June 2019.

The annual visual event of the year is here again and in true Met Gala tradition, celebrities were asked to dress in their best interpretation of a campy look; which basically means amping up the ‘extra’ factor to 100%. While solo attendees like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry were turning heads with their outlandish outfits, it seemed like the couple ensembles were what truly stood out from the crowd. From the young lovebirds to the newlyweds, here are eight pairings who’ve joined their star power to debut their campiest couture on the 2019 Met Gala red carpet.

#1 Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott

If you’ve ever wondered how a mermaid would look like on land, Kylie Jenner’s lilac mermaid-esque dress might be the answer to that. Paired with a matching purple wig, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan was a marvellous sight to behold alongside her partner Travis Scott, who donned a military-inspired ensemble.

#2 Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

After a seemingly whirlwind romance which led to their eventual marital bliss, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas returned to the place where their romance started with a change in relationship status, complete with matching couple wear that had them looking like the rightful king and queen of the ball.

#3 Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas

Making their debut as newlyweds, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas arrived in brightly-coloured coordinated outfits that wonderfully complement each other in an off-duty superhero kind of way, don’t you think?

#4 Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter

Everyone’s interpretation of this year’s theme might be different and we’re thinking this was probably the British couple’s idea of campy. Though looking more like a snazzy aristocratic couple than a campy duo, Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter’s outfits still looked ever so elegant on the red carpet.

#5 Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart

Quite possibly the campiest couple that walked the red carpet, Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart know just how to embrace the camp life. Both dressed by the same designer, the young Riverdale sweethearts looked just like an eccentric, modernised version of King Louis and Marie Antoinette.

#6 Lucy Boynton and Rami Malek

Though the Bohemian Rhapsody couple didn’t walk the carpet together due to the obligatory customs of the Met Gala (they were wearing different designers), both still attended as a couple with Rami Malek rocking hints of shimmer in his crisp suit and Lucy Boynton looking exquisitely dreamy in her sequinned gown.

#7 Camila Mendes and Charles Melton

While this other Riverdale couple’s ensemble wasn’t as over-the-top as their counterparts, the duo made their Met Gala debut in their own version of campy with matching colour tones that almost seemed like they might be channeling their inner Beast and Belle.

#8 Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

While Kanye West took a more casual approach to his outfit for the event, it was Kim Kardashian’s stunning beaded latex dress that stole the show. Not only did the dress take a whole eight months to create, but it was also the first piece that Mr. Mugler (of the House of Mugler) has personally designed in two decades!

All The Most OTT Red Carpet Looks From The Met Gala 2019

7 May 2019 by Chew Hui Ling

When it comes to the annual Met Gala Ball, it’s safe to say celebrities definitely don’t hold back on pulling out all the stops with their wildest, most outrageous looks imaginable – all in the name of camp fashion. From Katy Perry illuminating the red carpet as a bedazzled chandelier, to Lady Gaga bringing her camp A-game with not one but four different outfits, the 2019 Met Gala certainly didn’t disappoint. Ahead, check out our favourite OTT picks of the night.

Zendaya

Zendaya

Making a fairytale entrance in her glowing gown, Zendaya transformed into Cinderalla with the wave of a wand on the red carpet. As if we weren’t convinced that she’s a real-life princess, the 22-year-old did magic tricks and even left her glass slipper behind on the stairs. Boy, were we spellbound!

Hailee Steinfeld

The Pitch Perfect 3 starlet made a tongue-in-cheek statement with her voluminous ruffled dress, which had the words “No photos please” emblazoned across her skirt while she posed with a camera bag in hand.

Cara Delevingne

Colour us impressed when Cara Delevingne stepped out in a sheer rainbow bodysuit that showed off her model bod, topped off with an eye-catching headpiece covered in bananas, wind-up teeth toys and eyeballs.

Madelaine Petsch

Dua Lipa

Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan

You wouldn’t want to give cold shoulder to Saoirse Ronan when she was all armoured up in this badass sequinned dress – just check out her flamin’ shoulder pads!

Halsey

Here’s Halsey channeling her inner Wonder Woman in a red two-piece ensemble coupled with golden cuffs on her arms. It seems like Gal Gadot’s got some competition!

Ezra Miller

Erza Miller

If there’s someone that we’d turn heads for, it would definitely have to be Ezra Miller. All eyes were on the actor when he arrived in a bizarre masked look with multiple sets of eyeballs painted on for an optical illusion effect.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry

Bringing camp to life in a 40-pound chandelier dress, Katy Perry literally lit up the Met Gala red carpet as the singer paid homage to the theme of the night.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga

Can’t decide on what to wear to the Met Gala? Take it from Mother Monster, who stole the show with a total of four outfit changes – from a dramatic magenta gown, to a sweeping black number, to a vibrant pink dress complete with a retro cell phone and oversized sunnies, before finally stripping down to a matching black bra and underwear set. What a performance!
