So since our last post, HEADLINE SEOUL has opened it's first outlet here in Singapore! Located at Wheelock Place Basement 2, its 1800+ sq ft is filled with trendy pieces that no girl should go without. Especially when the prices are so low!
What else? Well they are going to be opening an even BIGGER store in Malaysia!
Good news for our Malaysian readers!
Well head down to the store to check them out!
Checkersandlace was lucky to attend the launch of the chic, korean, fast fashion brand, Headline Seoul at the Front Row store in Raffles Hotel last week. We are loving the accessories and its truly a brand that satisfies any working girl or budget fashionista's trend appetite.
About the Brand:
HLS is known for it’s cult-cool and editorial styling but it won’t break the bank, we promise. Prices range from $15 to $150 for its three collections – Clean Classics, Girly Chic and Trend-Led – and new pieces are dropped every six weeks or so.Stay on top of the Hallyu Wave with pieces from HLS, the designs are heavily influenced by what’s being worn by K-Pop and K-Drama stars as well as the burgeoning Seoul streetstyle scene, so you know you’re going to be ahead of the trends.
The other day I had the honor to attend the screening of the movie, $upercapitalist. Directed and produced by friends of mine, Simon Yin and Derrick Fong. And Darren as one of the male leads. It's hard to believe that the amazing team managed to complete the production within 0.5 Million US Dollars. The film production was extremely well done, Also featured Hong Kong film heavy weights such as Kenneth Tsang and Richard Ng. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and would certainly recommend it to anyone who love a thriller with a lot of action mixed with a bit of romance. Congrats everyone!
About the Movie:
$upercapitalist is a financial thriller about a young maverick hedge fund trader who is sent to Hong Kong to orchestrate a mega deal that swiftly gets out of his control.

Still not understanding the re-branding of YSL to Saint Laurent,. But either way, we are loving the new campaign for SS2013! Here are a few of our favorites.
I don't claim to be a person who understands art, I think my love for museums simply comes from the fact that I like quiet, uncrowded places that makes me feel relaxed and at ease. I do, however, believe that like fashion, a great piece of art can connect with you - if you let it. Interpret it however you want, it's all in the imagination.
Speaking of which, a good friend of mine, Simon Birch, came to Singapore to showcase his art at Palais Renaissance, and I had the honor of seeing the exhibition on its opening day (and enjoy a glass of vino with the artist himself).
Five years ago when I was a mere teenager (OK. just kidding, let's just say I was much younger), I was one of the few people who first modeled for Simon. Unfortunately the piece has been sold and I never got a chance to see it, but here is a photo of the piece before he painted it:
Now fast forward five years, and here we are:
A little about Simon:
Simon Birch is a U.K.-born artist, who is a permanent resident of Hong Kong, China. Although much of his work is and has been large, figurative oil paintings, over the last few years Birch has ventured into film and installation work culminating in some particularly notable large-scale projects: Azhanti High Lightning (2007, Singapore), This Brutal House (April 2008, Hong Kong) and the 20,000sq ft multimedia installation ‘HOPE & GLORY: A Conceptual Circus’ (April 2010, ArtisTree, Hong Kong) which represents a new level of integration of Birch’s conceptual, material and aesthetic concerns. These large multimedia projects included film, paintings, installation, sculpture, and performance housed in specifically configured spaces.
Birch is winner of the 2007 Louis Vuitton Asian Art award and is represented in Asia by independent art organisation, Future Industries, Hong Kong. His work has been featured and reviewed in many international publications, including Artforum, The Guardian, The International Herald Tribune, Time Out and the New York Times
Until next time, AUGUST MAN A LISTER POST COMING UP!
We were lucky to be able to attend the launch of such a wonderful collaboration between Topshop and the now popularized JW Anderson. Knowing Topshop, we knew it was going to be a blast.
From cupcakes to mini burgers, we were happy party goers!
Graphic print T-shirts to school-uniform inspired outfits, it was a nice twist to a usual preppy-look. Check out TopshopXJWAnderson to view more pieces. This collection is also available at ION Orchard and Knightsbridge Singapore.
Managed to snap a picture with the designer himself!
Now thanks to F3SINGAPORE on youtube, you can get peak into what happened that night:
In conjunction with FLYNOW Singapore's 1st year anniversary, the Thai based brand re-opened its store to a bigger, brighter and better outlet, situated in the iconic Raffles Hotel building. Guests are greeted by bold prints and an array of simple yet timeless pieces of the season.
Flexible pieces for a range of age groups. Like we always say, IT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW YOU STYLE!
