Got a taste for red and white? There’s ample reason to bust out fashion-wise this August as we ride high on National Day. From special collections by local brands to a carefully curated mix of red and white from international favourites, here’s how to get in the spirit of SG53 with patriotic pieces you’d actually wear…
Customise your kicks with Aldo
Step out in any one of Aldo’s white, black or red Mx 3.0 sneakers and get a uniquely Singaporean twist from the talented artists at Velvethoop Customs. Whizz through Aldo’s Ion Orchard outlet on 4th, 5th or 9th August to personalise these newly launched kicks with your initials and one of three National Day inspired designs.

Maje does red and white right
Parisian cool girl label Maje is our surprise source of National Day looks, and the red-and-white combo never looked so good thanks to this fall/winter 2018 collection. Get in the mood for National Day with a strong palette of red, black and white that will leave you wondering why you never dared to don this combo in the first place. We’ve fallen hard for the W20 sneakers (pictured above).

One cute koi…
Have your bubble tea fix and celebrate SG53 with Koi’s limited edition National Day card (with a value of $12) and a cute tote bag. Koi is bringing us major patriotic feels with an adorable print of our iconic HDB flats (did someone sing, “This is home, truly?”).
