In tandem with International Women’s Day, DMK launches an über stylish sneaker line to celebrate women as they put their best foot forward. The #feelgoodDMK sneaker collection consists of sneakers and slip-ons made with faux-leather and a soft cushion base for comfort with every step. And we love the choices of nude, pastel pink, grey and classic white colours with a splash of silver. But here’s the best part – 38% of the sale proceeds from the collection will go towards The Star Shelter Fund to support survivors (specifically women and their children) of domestic violence.

This time it’s joined hands with Jin Hsu and Joey Lee from Xinnatex, a New York-based womenswear label.

Otona Mode, Societe and SBT at BHG Singapore
Three of BHG Singapore’s in-house local labels designed by fashion designer Esther Choy have launched new arrivals for the new year. From the looks of it, our cart is going to be blowing up with new staples. First up, Otona Mode. It’s all about relaxed, comfy and laid-back charm with oversized fits. Our eyes are set on the loose fit midi dress with pockets in yellow (pictured above).
If your wardrobe is screaming for workwear staples, Societe is your best bet. Elegant, pastel tones, with wrinkle-resistant materials for convenience, encompass the collection. A handful of dresses aside, there’s also a good range of separates to mix and match.
Finally, SBT encompasses resort wear that we only wish we could use during our travels. Nonetheless, strut around Singapore in flowy dresses and wide leg pants with alluring design elements such as eyelets, flower prints, and stripes.
