I want to apologize to everyone for the looooonnnnggg radio silence. Work has been crazy busy!!!!
Peter Kor’s Studio 55 boutique is having a sale now till 25 June. This is a pretty good time to get some cheongsams which include those from this year Chinese New Year collection. The discount is also pretty generous, with many dresses going for only S$99. So do check out the boutique at #02-03, 222 Queen Street before your sizes run out.
Sissae has just launched the new “Luminance” collection, with its signature luxurious look. I’m only showcasing the cheongsam tops and dresses here, since the collection includes a mix of pants and other types of dresses. So we have here the Macy long vest, which I must say looks rather elegant. The embroidery is appears exquisite as well.
There are a couple of tops available, like this white Zoe blouse with dark green piping.
The other is the Agnella blouse in pastel blue, which looks like it is more suited for a pregnant lady though.
The Agnella also comes in a beautiful qipao which I would rather go for than the top. The embroidered duchess satin fabric looks absolutely gorgeous, and the back zip comes with a tassel which is a nice touch. I especially like the fact that the embroidery extended to the back which is typically absent in many dresses. This is a stunning piece of cheongsam!
Another elaborate piece of qipao is the Jade Ruffle, which as its name implies, has a ruffle sewn on the left shoulder. For this cheongsam, there is no embroidery at the back though.
Next, here is a halter-neck dress, the Fiona qipao, though I have some misgivings about the simple faux buttons running the front of the dress. It could have been a sexy stunning dress but the buttons make the dress looks plain. The embroidered lace at the back is the only saving grace.
Finally, the Emery cheongsam which has a conservative feel to it.
To round off, we have a couple of cheongsams from Hana. The designers must be having the garden theme in mind with these two dresses. They are pretty eye-catching but a little too elaborate for my taste though.
