The Attaby Collective | Whats New Singapore | Travelshopa

We interrupt your everyday routine to bring you some celebratory news. Singapore-based womenswear label, Attaby will be hosting a collaborative pop-up throughout the month of May (7th May – 4th June 2016) and it’s going to be one hell of a retail therapy party. Bringing on a strong independent lineup, The Attaby Collective aims to unite an intimate gathering of design-centric businesses to deliver a punchy alternative to mainstream retail. These include homegrown Singapore brands such as Attaby and Maison by Amanda Dyer and multi-label outfits such as Maissone and Madie Moo that curate a niche selection of international indie labels.

Founder and Creative Director of Attaby, Claire Chahill is the brains behind this new venture. “Having run my own standalone pop-up events, I wanted to share this success and my audience with likeminded, design-focused independents that really have something excellent to share,” she says.

Collectively, they present a quintessentially indie-minded approach to retail, where shoppers can meet with designers and retailers and spark conversations about their work. The excitement of a pop-up coupled with the intimate setting of a boutique concept provides a unique shopping experience fuelled by a warm-hearted sense of community. The pop-up’s location on Haji lane also sets it snug in the belly of Singapore’s arts and cultural enclave — the perfect spot from which to enjoy a few pleasure-filled hours of shopping.

Armed with over 10 years in global retail experience within megalithic luxury corporations, fashion and retail is one of the areas in which Claire appears to be possessed of the Midas touch.

“I am passionate about pairing people with brands that make them happy to shop and embellish their lives. I also love to work with brands and designers who go the extra mile to ensure their sourcing is fair and partner well with producers,” says Claire.

With labels such as Maissone, Frankitas, Cote and Badt and Maison by Amanda Dyer, expect to shop a curated selection of threads, accessories and home goods that ease and accentuate life in the tropics. “Everything has been chosen to compliment the demands and needs of the tropical climate that will also inject a sense of style to what we wear and choose to surround ourselves with,” says Claire. And to show you just what we mean by a one-stop shopping experience, we’ve picked out just some of the many choice pieces you’ll find at the pop-up. To be sure, homemakers, tourists, corporates and eco warriors alike will find something to delight over at The Attaby Collective.

Affordable Art Fair Singapore

Affordable Art Fair Singapore | What's New | Travelshopa

Art doesn’t have to be highbrow… the Affordable Art Fair Singapore (22-24 April 2016) offers a friendly and fun-filled art experience for everyone from the novice buyer to the seasoned collector.

Returning for its seventh year, Affordable Art Fair Singapore stands out for its unique disposition as a highly accessible art fair, offering contemporary artwork priced between S$100 to S$10,000, with 75 per cent of art works priced below $7,500.

Art fairs are gaining popularity with new and experienced art-buyers worldwide for their wide selection and diverse classification of artworks offered within a single location. The Affordable Art Fair Spring Edition sets such an example with over 40 new and returning galleries across four continents showcasing an amazing range of contemporary works, from prints and paintings to sculpture and photography.

Bringing art closer to the people, Affordable Art Fair opens the art market to a wider audience through a series of education and grassroots initiatives. These include public art installations, educational and hands-on workshops, art tours and other features powered by charity partners and the Affordable Art Fair team.

A much-anticipated fixture of the fair, the Charity Feature Wall will feature 40 multi media works by selected artists in support of the Woodbridge Hospital Charity Fund. Titled ‘Let Art Speak’, all of the featured art works are priced at S$500, the proceeds of which are shared evenly between the artists and the Woodbridge Hospital Charity Fund.

Fuel up on creative inspiration with the fair’s Art Education lineup, which includes a plethora of interactive workshops and art tours which expose fairgoers to a range of art disciplines, from silkscreen printing to professional art-buying. Meanwhile, the Children’s Art Studio, hosted by Little Artists Art Studio will keep the little ones engaged with a series of immersive fine art workshops covering topics such as printmaking, painting and charcoal drawing.

For the Instagram-obssessed crowd, there’s the added draw of ‘The Great Egg-Venture’, a public art installation that’s also a cleverly designed treasure hunt for 60 giant hand-painted eggs. Held from 10 March to 17 April, 25 artists were selected via AAF’s open call to design individual eggs depicting their vision for Singapore’s future. Each egg discovery could lead to a prize, so you’d best get (ahem) cracking!
