a week after korea, i was off to singapore. this time i was invited by nine west to view their spring/summer 2012 collection and to interview their creative director, fred allard. watch out for the full feature in a future issue of style weekend (next month!). but here's a sneak peek...
the interview was held at this fancy schmancy place called salt grill & sky bar, located at the top (56th floor!) of ion orchard. you can see the whole singapore from up here! and, er, malaysia..? the interiors:
the view: the new skyline of singapore. there's marina bay sands!
here's fred (a very american name for a frenchman), showing off nine west's first fragrance called love fury. watch for it! (check out the stopper, shaped like a stiletto heel):
later on in the afternoon, there was a little cocktail party to introduce the s/s 2012 collection to the local and regional press. let me tell you, nine west is really stepping up its game! lots of surprises coming up! color, prints, new materials, funky shapes, fun evening shoes, and a new product line: sneakers! here's a little teaser:
ok, there's tons more. i'll save them for the article, para may baon pa ako :-) a few local personalities were also invited to the event and came wearing nine west shoes. pretty sila, but sorry, don't know them! do you??
and here's me, trying one of the new bags! (hmmm i wonder if this was designed by rafé totengco? sayang, i didn't get to ask...):
