Just a few weeks back, I attended the opening event of POLO Ralph Laren’s first flagship store in Singapore with fellow fashion bloggers from Nuffnang!
Right after which, I hopped onto the plane and headed to Tokyo for some advertorial shoots with Melvin from Multifolds. Packed along all my favourite fashion finds (of those you see featured above) from Polo Ralph Lauren for the trip which came in handy and fashionable both at once.

The entire set was so apt for the location which we were shooting in, a gorgeous city scape with bright lights because I’m a city girl at heart.

Covered almost all my favourite cities on the globe this year– from Paris to Tokyo to New York, not to mention Bangkok and Taipei as well. The bright lights inspire me and make me feel alive and reborn. It’s an absolutely wonderful feeling that I’m not sure how many of you guys experience too.

Showcasing a pop of the bright fall colours like a striking yellow blazer mixed with classic wardrobe essentials like the high turtle neck top and of course, Polo Ralph Lauren’s timeless plaids skirt.

As showcased in NYFW F/W14, most looks are worn with tons and tons of layering. I think a major takeaway for you guys from here is to not be afraid of layering up. The best bet is layering tops with different necklines!
I hope you enjoy the visuals as much as I did enjoy putting them together. It was a really crazy hour long shoot at the Shibuya Crossing where Melvin and I crossed the roads at least 20 times just to get the perfect shots.
The rain shoot was even more challenging because I was battling with keeping myself warm (and dry) amongst it all.

If you’re in town, don’t forget to pop by Singapore’s first ever flagship store located at Shaw Centre! This store draws on authentic American inspirations, from the rich woods of an Adirondack boathouse to the whitewashed bricks of a Brooklyn loft, the vibrant collections are showcased throughout the store alongside custom bikes, kayaks and vintage guitars, speaking to a unique vision of rusticity and a cool downtown vibe. Vintage fixtures, rare art and two custom-cut river-rock stone fireplaces complete this dynamic world.

The new Polo flagship is one of many Polo stores planned to open worldwide in the coming years, heralding a new retail strategy for the Company. The Polo Flagship in New York opened earlier in September which I had the privilege of visiting during my stint in The Big Apple.
