Singapore 01 August 2016 – South Korean hyperstar Sandara Park takes the lead in this month’s edition of L’OFFICIEL Singapore.
The bona fide entertainer – the 2NE1 member has a whopping 4.2 million followers on Instagram and has reigned supreme in music, television and film – fronts the magazine in a stunning cover and fashion editorial shot by Joel Low, and reveals a layer of sensitivity and seriousness seldom seen by the public.
Take a note or two from Asia’s brightest and most celebrated architects as a guide to making the coolest sartorial choices now, see how our favourite fashion designers have looked to (and still scour) the East for inspiration, and witness the glory of Chinese couturier Guo Pei’s stunningly realised creations. Plus, join Manila-born photographer Chuck Reyes as he captures five of the biggest next-gen Asian models on the streets of New York, garbed in this season’s comfiest togs.
In the lifestyle section, designer Jarrod Lim opens up about Crystalline, his collaboration with Royal Selangor, while the L’Officiel Singapore team explores cool spaces in Asia (including the cool relaunched K+ Curatorial Space at Scotts Square), delves into the growth of Christian art in Asia since the 13th century in an eye-opening exhibition at the Asian Civilisations Museum, and heads up to a little piece of paradise in Phuket that has seen the likes of G-Dragon, Snoop Dogg and Rita Ora.
“Is Orientalism pastiche or homage? And do we subconsciously expect Asian designers to downplay cultural codes so as to achieve an ‘international’ aesthetic, or do we celebrate their birthright to reference their heritage and culture? This issue we proudly do the latter,” says Grace Tay, Managing Editor of L’OFFICIEL Singapore. “Join us as we celebrate Asia.”
“Whether shooting and interviewing international stars or Singapore celebrities, L'OFFICIEL Singapore has a specific and unique angle. In this issue South Korean superstar Sandara Park is being revealed under a new light. L'OFFICIEL Singapore team is once again proving how creative it can be. An issue that is surely worth collecting” - Olivier Burlot, CEO & Publisher of Heart Media
