Starting 2023 right, we had the honour of being featured on Suria: Manja. The interview was a quick discussion showcasing the pieces, the reasons why we began, and the possibilities of how kimonos can be styled into our current fashion scene.

Launching on www.syne.sg & second-edit.co on 22nd December 2022 Created from retired off season items from Style Theory’s past collections, these bags represent the potential of a circular production within the fashion industry. Made entirely out of fabrics that have been salvaged from clothing that are traditionally slated to be discarded, the bags are crafted to to ignite the latent potential of unwanted apparel. Each piece is unique and a one off, due to the low quantities of original clothing styles. The capsule collection between the two brands formed into a larger bag made from apparel that had large panels of fabric, and a smaller bag that was created from the remainder of the scrap materials.

We had the honour of collaborating on an art & fashion piece with our friend, and artist, Benedict Yu. Having showcased his works internationally, Benedict works mainly between Singapore and Taiwan.

Taking over their studio as an appointment only gallery for those who came to experience the beauty of wearable art pieces in the forms of kimonos and obis. During this event we took the chance to embrace syne's values of ecological consciousness. Our tags were made from recycled bamboo reeds, and we printed information for each kimono on plantable seed paper. This only complimented how each kimono we showcased had such amazing motifs filled with history, and how each piece showcased many artisans skills that we can no longer recreate. It...
