Here at Sassy, there’s nothing we love more than filling you in on the newest haunts, hottest labels and the finest of fashions. I’m delighted to announce that Japanese cult label 45R has arrived in Sassy Singers and we can’t wait to try out their comfortably relaxed stylish pieces! (*cue the screams*)
Started in 1977, 45R creates comfortable, high quality apparel that will easily become your every day essentials. The brand prides itself on producing items that brings “joy” to its wearers and uses only the finest quality materials. 45R aims to keep to its traditional values by using time-tested techniques such as silk- printing, hand stitching and wood block printing. Each technique helps towards creating beautiful, individual items that will last the test of time.
The brand opts for vintage inspired designs that are heavily influenced by Japanese culture and fashions. Taking classic silhouettes, 45R give their items a contemporary twist by using oversized fits, bold signature prints and beautifully elegant colour palettes. I must admit I’m a huge fan of their patterned flared trousers and square fit matching top, they’re the perfect summer essentials and look fabulous worn as a combo or make great separates.
The brand has a huge following and we know its signature items will be a hit with the fashionistas of Singapore. Its range includes Selvedge denim, a favourite among denim connoisseurs; Ai Indigo, a range of denim with distinctive shades due to its hang dying process, and the famous Star, a brilliant basic tee made with a dry touch texture for comfort and breathability, perfect for hot summer days.
Each item purchased is wrapped using the traditional furoshiki style. This presentation is used throughout the brand to signify the connection between you and the item. It also ties into the Japanese tradition of passing on and is aimed to shed light on “what lies beyond and around it.” What’s even better is this light and soft furoshiki can be used as a stole and to rewrap other items.
Located at the swanky new Capitol Piazza, 45R is a fabulous destination for the discerning customer wanting to add something a little different to their wardrobe this season. As well as their stunning Sea Land Marble Summer collection, they also have a gorgeously unique leather collection from leather artisan Henry Cuir and for a limited time only are bringing their exclusive Painter Denim to Singapore – this range of denim is light-weight, breathable and perfect for our hot and humid days!
What more could we ask for? Be sure to check out 45R on your next spree to bag yourself these stylish staples!
