    it is in between City Hall MRT and Dhoby Ghaut MRT. Or if you are taking a cab/bus, it is near Bras Basah Road.

    Grin, welcome to Singapore. Yvan, don’t leave before indulging in one of the coolest dining hangouts at Dempsey Road, Rochester Park or Portsdown Road. And yes, check out the art schools like NAFA and La Salle too.

    I would totally wear that with my gorgeous diamond necklace my fiance bought me from for my birthday and show off the look downtown like she did!

    It’s simple yet chic, black is the new black!

    yup i totally agree Lasalle is the best place to hunt for fashionable students esp fashion students. Lasalle is at McNally Street opposite Sim Lim Square. one and only black building.


  27. she is cute, but i don’t like the look!

  28. Hey Yvan! Nice shot…I’ve been following you since right before you went to Melbourne. I’m friends online with Hayley..she featured my artwork on her blog.

    Wow! You’re already in Singapore? I’m interested to see the street styles there.

    you dont want to go to Thailand after Singapore! The airport in Thai is crowded with Anti-government protesters… Head to HONG KONG instead!! nice weather here and cool people/places to see!!!

  36. aaron. says:

    check out lasalle college/ temasek design school for some pretty sweet outfits.

    and swing by the butter factory.
    it’s a nightclub with some seriously sick outfits.

    and if all else fails, then stake out club street/ haji lane.

    quite disappointed you only managed to find a good hunt that day. singaporeans’ style are really that bad? i do know we do not really have a own street style or a own fashion style. we often get ideas from other countries instead like the us or jap. hope you will develop our own style one day.

    anyway i thought she was quite over. its so hot in singapore and she is wearing boots? thats unrealistic for our weather. i hope ppl could dress with style and but not sweat under a wool jacket although its fashionable. its quite dumb to have done that. if its me i would have done something that could be wearable in this weather yet stylish. do you ever see someone wear a pair of leather boots in summer? yes, if its a lunatic.

    katee, singapore

    i do agree that there isn’t a big deal about fashion students because they study fashion. the more should they dress well. if they can’t then it would be really wrong.

    i feel that everyone has their own style. its just how to view it. i think there is lots of good dressing on the streets that is yet to be discovered. never miss out those areas they may let you get some great finds. its never where you are in.

    There are other nicely dressed ppl NOT from fashion studies.

    Think you should head to Orchard Road tomorrow Yvan. Generally though, fashion here is pretty standard & unimaginative. There are exceptions of course so hope you find those.

    Err Katee, fashion does not need to be practical. You should watch the runways.

    i was going to buy that shirt recently, but it was sold out. i did a blog about animal shirts awhile back though. my husband sports his power animal, the wolf, on his shirts.

    Oh noooooo! She looks exactly like me this summer((( But i had leather leggins

    this is what happens when the world gets so influenced by impulses from all over the world. this might as well have been shot in London…It´s the sad result of media, and the internet. Peaople seem to strive for the same looks, and it all becomes rediculously uniform. Singapore is by the way quite a clinical place, both in terms of the spanking clean streets, new builds and mega corporations. A bit like an Asian geneva of sorts. Or The Docklands in London. Lot´s of “suits” and corporates. Head to Little India- that´s the most vibrant part of the city, and you´d be sure to shoot some fabulous outfits not based on purely whats trendy this sec (or last season…)

    hey katee singapore, bet you’re kinda sore you are not in it huh? i would think you are way stylish for this anyway.

  71. Anonymous says:

    Hey guys, live and let live, yah? We all have different ideas of what style is. So let’s be less bitchy about our comments about our own Singaporeans and more beachy with what our sunny isle can offer.

    And since Yvan chose her, I’m sure she has a measure of style :). I support yah girl!

    Woow Génial son tish !

  73. airshotgun says:

    i think the best place to go is.. just roam around here in singapore, and who knows some spectacular people you’ll meet. [:

    it seems the only ones slamming the outfit are singaporeans (admit it).

    you guys are so disgraceful. chill, la.

    this is such a joyous blog that celebrates individuality and lifestyles. so it is painful when people come in and get negative or even worse, abusive. if a particular style isn’t your cup of tea, respect others opinions and keep them to yourself. we have enough ugliness in the world already. Hope you enjoyed Singapore and we are always happy to have you back :)
