pardon me for saying this but I personally and strongly feel that the fella in this blog is trying to give sacrastic remarks towards the trends he so-called deduced.

Singaporeans are just a herd of conformed cows. (Im also a Singaporean) but we ought and should be more experimental in our dressing. Whats with the anti-layering thing? Wouldnt it be bored if you see the tee-jeans-sneaker everytime? I feel that layering makes a difference.

well...it is harosingapore afterall, and the writer of the article is entitled to his opinion, whether it be biased/unbiased, sarcastic/neutral...etc etc. but i am veering off on a tangent.

my intention of posting up the link was more for the photographs than the commentary, as i noticed a lack of photos from our little island while browsing through this thread. however, i offer my apologies if it offended anyone.

going back to singaporean style though- yes, we are 'a herd of conformed cows' i think that things might improve over time, as more international labels which are more in tune with global trends set up shop in singapore (h&m, perhaps?) and more people take to online shopping. right now one of our problems is the duplication of shops in every mall; my opinion is that with more choice, people might find it easier to branch out and create their own individual styles. i say might, because first there are two factors to be overcome- the abovementioned pressure to blend in, and of course, the weather.

that was just my (very inexperienced) $0.02, so feel free to poke holes in it and argue.

I very much agree to you. Yes I heard that H&M were gonna launch their store here in SG soon. How true is that? Sometimes i really do hate the weather for being so horrible. Damn humidity

Teen Vogue takes a trip around the world.

Contrary to popular belief, fashion—not love—is the international language. With that in mind, Teen Vogue hits the road to learn the ABCs of style on a global scale. First stop: Beijing. All aboard!

^^The problem I have with most of those China streetstyle pics is the inexplicable obsession with cutesy motifs. There's something a little tacky about wearing jeans with a patch of a dog on the bum or maybe tacky is a little strong - just not to my taste at all.....
In Hong Kong, if you go into those cheap cheap clothing stores, there's TONS of that sort of gear which I see grown 40 yr old women buying - it ain't right and it ain't clever.....

I agree that the colorful motifs are terrible. My cousin lives in Beijing and I have to cringe at some of the stuff she wears.
At least she's not into the overlayering HK style that doesnt flatter the body though *sigh of relief* lol
