In The September 2019 Issue: Singapore Tatler Friends Celebrate Fashion Freedom This Fall/Winter 2019
At Singapore Tatler, the way we approach fashion is vastly different from other publications.
Why? Because Tatler insiders are fashion consumers, rather than just fashion content consumers. They are the aspirational clotheshorses. Their seat’s in the front row at shows during Paris fashion week. They certainly consume fashion as an extension of their personality; as art; as memory keepers.
That’s why it’s important for us to see beyond the fashion trends. Over the last few years—in fashion and beyond—the wave of change has been hitting the shores: fashion isn’t just a form of self-expression, there should also be freedom in sartorial expression.
We celebrate fashion freedom in the September issue of Singapore Tatler. The It bag or It-anything has died. Carry what you want. The right to choose what you wear. The emphasis on how there is no need to play by anyone else’s rules but your own.
As it’s become commonplace that menswear and womenswear collections are collectively shown together as a cohesive show, the lines between both sometimes blur. Virgil Abloh aptly asked, in reference to the Louis Vuitton fall/winter 2019 menswear collection,“This is menswear—but what makes men?”
