Local Talent Takes The Spotlight In Mens Folios Homegrown Issue

SINGAPORE, 1 August 2016– Local talent takes the spotlight in MEN’S FOLIO’S Homegrown issue.

No matter how far you go in life, it’s important to look back once in awhile and remember where your origins. This August, Men’s Folio goes back to its roots of promoting local talent in its Homegrown issue, coinciding with the celebrations for the nation’s independence. Get acquainted with the athletes who will be representing Singapore in the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympics: sprinter Timothee Yap, windsurfer Leonard Ong, and table tennis player Chen Feng. Watch Irfan Fandi, son of our very own local football legend Fandi Ahmad, brandish the TAG Heuer Aquaracer. Delve into the mind of Boo Junfeng, the first Singaporean filmmaker to be invited to the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.  

“On our cover this month is one of Singapore’s biggest male music exports: JJ Lin. In an exclusive one-on-one interview, Lin, who has released hit album after hit album since 2003, tells Men’s Folio how it felt to pick up two of the top honours, Best Male Mandarin Singer and Best Composer Award, at the 27th Golden Melody Awards this year. The 35-year-old singer, decked in the latest Prada Autumn/Winter collection, also spoke candidly about his style, where he keeps all his trophies, and what’s keeping him busy these days,” says Lance Lim, editor.

Four is the magic number for this issue as we continue building Men’s Folio as the go-to men’s fashion magazine. In this issue, we present four trends from the Pre-Fall 2016 season to keep you updated with the latest on the international luxury runway. We also highlight four rising local design talents – Amos Ananda Yeo, Chong Han San, Chelsea Scott-B, and Samuel Wong – and their clothing lines that are shaping the local fashion scene and defining what you should wear now.

To top it all off, Men’s Folio continues to show its passion and drive to support local with the third edition of the Men’s Folio Designer of the Year competition. All talented young designers are invited to send in their creative works, to stand a chance of winning great prizes, and seeing your outfits come alive on the runway.
