Last night I was looking at this dress over at OAK.
This morning, I saw a complete lookalike when I was walking through the neighbourhood wet market — yes, the fruit stall has expanded into fashion. This confirms a theme that has been repeated examined and explored on this blog: fashion gets to the heartlands via China, and more quickly than it does via Zara and Forever 21 (via China as well, just more middlemen). The neighbourhood stores are to an extent more fashion-forward than many of the high street stores are, if you’d care to take a look.
The result: Sass & Bide’s patterned leggings simply cannot be worn in Singapore without a snide reference or two to the typical Ang Mo Kio Auntie.
Why? She got them first.
