Fash-Spotlight: Angelicious Creations

April 10, 2009 1:15 pm · Posted by fasheccentric

I first discovered Singapore homegrown jewellery brand, Angelicious Creations while shopping at Isetan Scotts in Singapore. As a former jewellery-making hobbyist, I was intrigued by the intricate, cute designs by Jacqueline Koh, owner and designer of Angelicious Creations.  Believe me, I know the hardwork and patience designers put into their work. This is definitely no “blog shop” – but it is bigger, and wayyy better. You will be happy to know that high-quality materials are used such as 14k Gold-Filled ear hooks, chains, wires, Sterling Silver, even Rhodium parts for those who are sensitive to certain metals. That’s good news for me! I am fortunate to have a quick email interview with Jacqueline on her fabulous company:

Jacqueline Koh

What’s the story behind Angelicious Creations? Art is not foreign to me. I always had a creative streak, from drawings to paintings. In fact, I taught myself jewellery design from scratch – from clay-making to wire-working. Initially, it was my creative expression and also my form of escape from the real world. It all began with my daydreams of magical creatures and mystical places. I realized my dream could come true by making beautiful jewellery as a living. Thus, Angelicious Creations was born.

Free as a Bird Earrings

Tell me about your design philosophy. My design philosophy revolves around my inspiration from myths and fairytales. Initially, goddesses, fairies and nature spirits started appearing in my early artworks. I immediately knew that my love and appreciation of the magic of nature would greatly influence my work in jewellery design. When it comes to design, there is no limitation. My team of designers and I stay on-trend with the latest fashion styles to come up with something for everyone.

What kind of person do you imagine wearing your designs? Let’s see, anyone who is fun and trendy will love the handmade jewellery by Angelicious Creations. They must appreciate quirky, vintage designs with a whimsical, fairy-tale twist!

Fae in Blue Earrings

Your designs have a magical touch to them. Which mystical creature inspires you the most? Fairies and angels inspire me the most. These two mythological creatures inspire most of our designs. Even our company logo is that of an angel! We like the fact that they are beautiful, intriguing and full of wonder. Angelicious Creations aims to embody all these amazing attributes into the everyday wear. Thus, our customers feel as sexy as a fairy!

Spotted: Black is the New Black

April 10, 2009 2:22 am · Posted by fasheccentric

I NEED/HEART/DIE FOR a black leather jacket.

i-D’s Erika Kurihara and Gareth Pugh were spotted by Jak & Jill enroute to the Louis Vuitton show. That reminds me that I left my favourite black jacket (seen here) in Melbourne. And, I prolly need one for Tokyo. Boo!

I can't wait for Gareth Pugh at this year's AFF! Enjoy your Good Friday.

I Heart Arielle De Pinto

April 9, 2009 3:03 pm · Posted by fasheccentric

Raw, intricate jewelry excites me. That's why I absolutely heart the work of Arielle De Pinto. This Montreal-based jewelry designer attained her cult-status with her interestingly crocheted metal accessories. Pinto mixes the "essence of handicrafts with contemporary materials and a loose, unstructured aesthetic". With no training in jewelery making, Pinto learnt crocheting off a Susan Bates crochet hook package - but replaces the yarn with metal instead. I sooo wanna get my hands of these:

Barbie & Ken Gets a British Makeover!

April 8, 2009 1:41 pm · Posted by fasheccentric

It's time to pimp my doll!

(from left: Gareth Pugh's Ken, Roksanda Ilincic's Barbie and Danielle Scutt's Barbie)

In conjunction with the British leg of Barbie's 50th birthday celebration, Barbie & Ken dolls got an exclusive makeover from the hottest British fashion designers, Gareth Pugh, Roksanda Ilincic and Danielle Scutt.

Gareth Pugh said to Grazia, "I wanted my Ken to be outside the confines of what is acceptable. I wanted him to be contemporary. So I gave him a black PVC coat that is a scaled down version of one from my menswear collection. And some skinny black trousers."

These dolls are available exclusively at Dover Street Market in London at £179.99 each. Limited stocks only! I wish I could get my hands on them!

This reminded me of the limited edition Karl Lagerfeld Steiff Bear at I spotted at Millenia Walk on Sunday. It costs almost SGD$3K! Well, no wonder it is still sitting on the window display. Any takers?

I wonder this bear will make me rich in future on eBay.

Spotted: Audrey Tautou at Paris Premiere of 'Coco Avant Chanel'

April 8, 2009 1:20 pm · Posted by fasheccentric

'Coco Avant Chanel' premiered at a Champs-Elysees theater in Paris yesterday - like finally! Audrey Tautou (who played Coco Chanel, of course) wore this black-and-white floral frock from Lagerfeld's Spring couture collection. I like how she jazzed the look up with a sleek cropped leather jacket. And, I love her shoes!

According to the reviewers, the film definitely surpassed its expectations! I can't wait till this film hits our silver screens in Singapore. I wonder which lucky movie distributor will be bringing this film in. Let's have a fashion movie club night out!

3 Days to Uniqlo at Tampines 1, Singapore!

April 6, 2009 1:38 pm · Posted by fasheccentric

Say it with me: 3 MORE DAYS TO UNIQLO!

Are you excited? I recently attended an exclusive media preview of Singapore's first Uniqlo store at the brand new Tampines 1 mall. The highly anticipated store will open its doors on 9 April, Thursday to kick start your Good Friday weekend! So, don't be surprise to fight through a huge crowd! The "UT" and "denim" items will be the highlights of the range offered to the Singapore market. I always love the good quality basics - and I headed straight for the bra tops! Don't ask me why. Scroll down for Fash-E's exclusive coverage of the Tampines 1's Uniqlo store:

A quick walkabout of the Uniqlo store at Tampines 1 featuring familiar faces! Hee.

This is only the beginning :)

Pac Man lovers, knock yourself out.

Feeling stripey?

HATS! SCARVES! YEAH!

The colours. The choices. Heaven.

From boys to men.

I was particularly interested in work wear since I need a wardrobe revamp!

The intimates are uber-cute!

Thanks to these two men, Mr. Tadashi Yanai, the founder and president of Fast Retailing, and Mr Cheng Wai Keong, Chairman of Wing Tai Holdings - Uniqlo is finally here!

Shopaholics Rejoice!!! Have fun this Thursday (I'll be working :( unfortunately) and get there early!

Vans Slip-On Goes Fruity!

April 6, 2009 12:20 am · Posted by fasheccentric

Get Fruity!

Let's begin the week with a fresh twist to Vans new range of slip-ons. I'm particularly loving the watermelon one because it looks ultra-seedy. Hee. I haven't worn slip-ons in awhile now!

This girl is parked at home today - thanks to her dodgy tummy and hot hot heat (is it me or the weather has been really muggy?). You don't need the details. Enjoy your week!

It's here! My HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition

April 5, 2009 4:40 am · Posted by fasheccentric

I finally picked up my HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition laptop from the good people at Content Craft. In case you're wondering how I got this, I participated in this contest not too long ago and won! Yippee! I spent my entire weekend playing with my new lappy... also, trying to get use to the Windows interface! I haven't use Windows since forever, so bear with me. My lappy is so vain that we spent the entire morning cam-whoring:

A small, easy-to-carry nifty packaging.

Hello! I'm sooo sexy.

Look at my beautiful plastic surgery-free skin!

My Fash-E header takes up hald the screen! Yikes.

The Vivienne Tam laptop "sack". I can't seem to slot my lappy in properly.

Watch the video to see why.
