Cheongsam news (updated)

Let’s  start with sales.

Vourgeois (4th level One Raffles Place) is having a massive sale of at least 70% off. I didn’t get any as I either couldn’t find my size or that I didn’t  like the designs.

Sissae is having an exclusive preview of its new collection in Singapore for the first time at the Blue Print trade show, and the collection is open to the public this Saturday and Sunday(16 & 17 May) from 10am to 6pm. If you are interested in the cheongsams, do check them out at Suntec convention hall 401 & 402, booth E-02.

Here are a couple of the more recent designs from Sissae.

There is currently a sale of its current and older collections.

By the way, Miz Apparels is also having a clearance sale of its cheongsam dresses and little girl cheongsams at 20% discount.

Next, we check out the online boutiques. There had been a hiatus among them after the Chinese New Year. They only started launching new collections from March. I haven’t  been featuring them for some time and that is because I was hoping to write about something different instead of just reviewing the clothes. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, the plan had to be shelved.

Anyway, both Joli Pretty and Our Bitsy Prints have launched two collections since March, while Lark & Peony has launched one featuring cheongsam tops. The Happy Cheongsam has been quiet so far, and The Lady General is on an indefinite break.
(Update;) Ming from THC just had a baby and so she is taking a few months off.

JP’s latest collection has only one new design: a shift dress with lace appliqué. It may be that the dress doesn’t fit the model very well, but it doesn’t seem to drape well on the lower half bodice.

As for OBP, it’s latest collection (launched last night) is vintage inspired and featured a lot of floral or psychedelic prints. Some of them might make your head spin even without having a taste of weed.

Here’s a wrap skirt cheongsam dress with a lace covered cape design. I find the pairing rather strange, and I am not sure I like the cape.

A shift cheongsam dress with jarring prints that can make you go crossed-eyes.

Another shift design, perhaps for the chubby ladies?

OBP’s previous collection also featured some new designs. One of them is a dress with butterfly sleeves, which admittedly that seems to be the only difference from the usual flare skirt cheongsam.

Then there is this short-sleeved front buttons cheongsam, which I seriously don’t find interesting.

Another shift cheongsam dress. I wonder what’s with the deluge of shift designs? Are we going back to the days of the early 20th century when women did not show their waist?

L&P showcased cheongsam tops this time, a first for the brand, but there is nothing new to the peplum design though.

That’s it. These are the updates I have so far.
