Who is Annie?

We’re pleased to present: CHALK Fall 2010 Collection- SHE IS ANNIE

Chalk unveils the holiday season with a new line inspired by Annie Hall. Post-modern, intellectual and eternally conflicted about NOT being conflicted, Annie is the quintessential woman of today grappling with career, relationships and that elusive meaning in life.

Work stress, angry disgruntled red-faced boss, endless paper work and that colleague who just won’t shut up? Annie looks calm and relaxed. Legs crossed, mind focused, pen at her lips. Unperturbed. She looks confident. She knows it. C’est La Vie

Work late. Angry disgruntled boyfriend/husband. Dab on that red lipstick. One wink and he falls under her spell. The city lights beckon, washing away dark thoughts of day.

Sometimes the world can wait. And sometimes, just sometimes, the world waits on you.

Chalk addresses the complexities of the woman today with a range of dresses and outfits to suit each moment from day to night. Whether it be light comfortable pieces for work or a casual date to elegant shimmering drapes to match the dazzling city at night, this collection has one theme in mind. To make every moment your very own.

Say: C’est La Vie. Also say: Life is what you make of it.

In Anticipation..

About launching our FALL collection and to celebrate our 1st Birthday in just 1 more day!!! YEAHH:)

Behind the Scenes: Preparation for CHALK BDAE BASH!

If you passed by our shop these few days and was wondering why we're stitching in such concentration, it's all because of the door gift we have specially prepared for our guests this Sat! To make it more exclusive, we only made 50 of them from scratch with lots of love!
Together with the bow tie brooch, we've coupled in some more stuff in our goodie bag! So we went shopping, running, stamping and playing with ribbons and we're proud of how they all turned out! Just 2 more days, and we have lots of steaming, running, tagging and decorating to work on as we hope our goodie bag brings a smile to everyone who swings by!
Imagine my surprise when our previous intern Hilda told me the happiest news ever! She is willing to help me for a month and boy do we need her help!:)

Behind the minds of Luxury Brands

In page 327 of Deluxe, I love this quote from Christian Louboutin on what sets him apart from his confreres is his business philosophy.

"Luxury is the possibility to stay close to your customers, and do things that you know they will love. It's about subtlety and details. It's about service. I cannot accept a place where people are badly received. I can't imagine spending several thousand dollars on something and the salesclerk gets annoyed because you take 15 minutes to look. Luxury is not consumerism. It is educating the eyes to see that special quality."

You have to read this book. It's beyond awesome!We got this book at Soon Lee:)

A Bouquet A Day

The weekend is here! And I'm going to buy myself a cherry bouquet:) Isn't this sweet!

A Shout Out!

To Faz for being so supportive and encouraging ALL the time! And for all her advice and help even before I started CHALK! Thanks babe, u rock big time!

The Red King

I'm so thrilled this exhibition is coming to town!! When I was in Melb in September, I chatted with a lady on the tram before heading to lygon street and she told me her brother curates this exhibition and she told me it's heading to Spore end of the year! Ah..I can't wait to see the legend's designs up close:)
