jade & sandstone | Matter's iching collection
a book of changes and one of the oldest chinese classics, the latest collection from Matter is inspired by the timeless significance of iching. like the yin and yang, it is a process of change traditionally used to guide decisions. even now, many still find meaning in its readings.
expressed in a pattern of 8 trigrams, the rigid symbols of water and fire were taken and adapted into a more spontaneous form - much like how we imagined the intended writings to be.
as the interpretation goes, fire is unwavering and water is carefree. the two oppose yet balance each other. this is paralleled in the fabrics used in this collection: through the structure of organic cotton and flow of crepe silk. discover the collection in kapok at NDC. (more…)

[kapok event] Lost Guides Singapore book launch party
"i'm drawn to small and intimate places, where the owner might greet you at the door, and you can feel their hard work and passion running through every aspect of the business.
i've met a silversmith hidden away in a second floor flat on the east coast pounding out chunky wedding rings, seen a field full of birds singing in their cages on top of lofty poles in kebun baru, eaten modern singapore cuisine in an old black and white house in a tropical garden, and wandered through a lush jungle with monkeys swinging from branch to branch."
anna, travel guru & author of Lost Guides.
join us this thursday, 6.30pm for the book launch party! local eats by Tanuki Raw[ and speak with the book collaborators to learn about the hidden secrets our island has to offer. (more…)

the seed for Spalwart was planted when swedish designer, Christoffer Brattin, received an invitation to tour a factory in slovakia. he arrived at this factory that was huge and kind of abandoned but it was in the factory’s storage warehouse he found “treasure” in the form of old sneaker moulds from the ’50s and earlier.
inspired, the designer convinced the owner to do a trial using the old moulds and machines, which factory workers had to relearn. hence, that's how a key Spalwart signature, the marathon trail low begun.
available in unisex sizes, discover the 2 colourways, cobalt & navy in our flagship store. the navy mesh marathon trail low is a kapok exclusive. (more…)
