Hola, my fashion forward amigas! There’s an awesome exhibition coming to town this 28 April – 17 May featuring a number of Barcelona’s best designers called Barcelona Transgressive Designers: From Art to Design that you won’t want to miss out on. Singers is definitely having a sartorial moment, what with Singapore Fashion Week and Blueprint coming to town, and this is just another fantastic addition to our style scene that we’re pinching pennies for at the National Design Centre. With incredible handmade and eco-friendly fashion brands for both men and women, this exhibition is branching out beyond fashion to showcase some of the coolest homewares and ceramics as well.
Looking to step up your bling? Alba Casares’ gorgeous utilitarian-chic jewels are super unique (if someone could get me those incomplete triangle brass earrings, that would be fab), while Papiroga’s handmade necklace are the perfect dose of whimsy for any wardrobe.
Ethical Emmas, there’s a number of eco-friendly and fairtrade businesses checking in at the little red dot as well. From RebelRoot’s quirky graphic design threads to Espelma&Louise’s fun organic candles (above), you can spend your hard earned dollar knowing that you’re working towards making a difference in the world.
Finally, if your house is recovering from a spring clean and needs a little bit of sprucing, check out MedioDesign’s trippy 3D printed home accessories (above left) or Ranran Design’s chic woven wall art (above right) to bring some life to those bare walls.
The best thing about it all? If you’ve found something you’ve fallen in love with over the course of the exhibition, you can shoot on over to kapok where they’ll be holding a pop-up store. Held from 18 May – 18 June in the same building, they’ll be selling a selection of the items you’ll have taken a little looksee at. Check out all the details below!
