Happy 46th Birthday S'pore!

For our Nation’s Birthday, all of us at CHALK would like to wish Singapore

a prosperous and happy birthday!

We have specially come up with a limited edition T-shirt to celebrate this joyous occasion. Inspired by the traditional costume of the Peranakan, we created a modern twist to the Baju Panjang by focusing on the delicate lace trimmings of the costume and creating a new art work onto a basic tee.

Sourcing the lace was quite an experience as we sought our Peranakan friends for help and we managed to snag a vintage lace from an aunt who collects laces and trims to decorate her Baju Panjang. The pairing of old and new is what we wish for Singapore, to always be on the forefront for all things new and that we will never forget how we reach where we are today with the help of our forefathers!

We only made 3 pieces so grab them at our lovely "HOME" exclusively made for Nation Pride 2011 at Parco at Marina Bay!
