Tatler Table: Fashion Insiders Show Off Their Sartorial Knowledge
At a time where Fashion is obsessed with all things street and millennial, Tatler took the time to break bread at the Capitol Kempinski Hotel with Singapore’s Fashion OGs – the Original Gangsters who broke (and are still breaking) sartorial boundaries. Singer/songwriter Dick Lee expressed his logo mania with a boysenberry-hued Gucci suit.
“It’s my second time around doing bell-bottom pants!”, he said, alluding to the fact that he is (unbelievably) 63 years old. Aesthetic doctor Georgia Lee rocked up in Balenciaga – a tone-on-tone, dress and bootie ensemble that added four inches to an already statuesque frame. And socialites Fanty Soenardy and Dana Cheong looked ready to party in their LBDs – Fanty in Chanel Coco Neige collection and Dana in Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2019.
During dinner, Fashion Director Desmond and I held a surprise fashion quiz with tricky questions designed to trip everyone up, but the joke was on us. Our guests aced every question (including, “Which designer was responsible for the split-toe TIBI shoe?” Answer: Martin Margiela). Well, we expected nothing less from Tatler Fashion Insiders.
