1. Wear your political support on your sleeve
So what’ll it be come Sept 11? The ‘Lee-der’ in white, the ‘co-driver’ in blue or the ‘Chiam-pion’ in red? The SGPolit-icons T-shirts from local design studio Cerealbox Shop ask Singaporeans to see the light-hearted side of the upcoming elections, because, as they say, “Elections are serious business, but we don’t always have to show our support in a serious way.” We say that no matter what your political leanings are, these cheeky tees are good for a chuckle. Check out these and other SGPolit-icons tees ($29.90 each) on www.cerealboxshop.com, and see if you can tell your political icons apart.
2. Wear your love for Singapore icons on your back
More local lovin’, this time courtesy of a collab between US bag brand Le Sportsac and local design studio Black. The LeSportsac X Black collection features a limited edition print inspired by iconic local structures, which is exclusive to Singapore. Changi Airport, the Merlion, the Singapore Flyer, Gardens by the Bay, and the Chinese Garden have been re-imagined as Peranakan-looking ‘tiles’ and patchworked all over LeSportsac’s best-selling bag models. We like the Voyager backpack ($270) with the not-so-hidden Merlions. Available in October from LeSportsac stores and counters.
