new and exclusive | laps watches (france)
bored of the minimalist watches you see everywhere nowadays? you're not the only ones. we have been searching for a different aesthetic of watches and we are happy to say we have found that in a new french brand - laps.
made only in limited editions in paris, laps' watches come in a delicate packaging with a serial number and the total quantity of that production run. the watches preserve the uniqueness of photographs and materials on their dials, such as real washi paper and genuine leather.
what especially impressed us was how it matched our own ideals of design - fun, yet stylish - nothing too serious and yet not kitschy.

voort | homegrown redefined crownless wrist watch
we navigate the world around us with our finger tips, whether it's turning on a lamp or just unlocking our phones with our fingerprints. we expect things to happen with a single touch. however, that's not the case with wrist watches where the jutting crown sticks out like a sore thumb can be a huge bother to set the time.
VOORT started by 2 watch enthusiasts with industrial design background, aims to make life easy by integrating the crown to the back of the watch. setting time is now fuss-free and satisfying!
try on the voort one watches in our NDC store! (more…)

arete goods | breezy linen dresses with gorgeous bounce and drape
linen is very breathable and keeps the body free of moisture due to its capability of absorbing moisture and then quickly yielding it. an excellent choice of fabric for summer, especially in hot and humid singapore!
the charm of linen lies in how it wrinkles.this is the nature of linen, and simply, the beauty of it. we say, embrace each crease! each linen crease adds character and tells the story of one’s lifestyle.

new visual theme | supports / surfaces
kapok’s new theme for the season, supports / surfaces, is derived from the brief art movement in 1960s france. a child of its time, the movement embodies the post-may 1968 spirit of free expression and will, giving it a distinctively bold graphic style where artists express their voice through their methods.
this philosophy immediately spoke to us – how every single product is created, how it impacts the user with its qualities and functionalities, how we provide a shopping experience is far more important than a mere impression it gives at first glance. we have recreated this movement in our stores, with colour blocks and bold brush strokes. rich in texture and materials, this theme conveys the simple but important message – methods speak louder than results.
in the array of products we have to offer, we have selected several that embody the same philosophies to introduce to you. take Parasolbag, where the design and making of the bags take in consideration of the limited material so that the colour can be appreciated; VOORT watches, handcrafted by local watch lovers who seek to refine the modern wrist watch with a crownless timepiece, and more.

kapok crew life | visiting FREITAG lab at zurich !
kidd, manager of our k11 shop in hong kong, went to switzerland for vacation last month. as kapok crew, she was invited to explore the world's one and only Freitag lab in zurich!!! this is where all the FREITAG bags are designed from scratch – from washing the collected truck tarps, cutting up, designing to product shooting. let’s take a peep on how FREITAG is made.
as many of you may know, FREITAG was started by markus and daniel freitag in 90s. inspired by the multicolour heavy traffic that rumbled through the zurich transit intersection in front of their flat, they developed a messenger bag from used truck tarpaulins, discarded bicycle inner tubes and car seat belts. this is how the first FREITAG bags took shape in the living room of their shared apartment – each one recycled, each one unique.
so what’s this lab for?
until now, there are already 170 f-workers. the five tarp buyers will hunt down the best tarps in the hottest colours everywhere everyday. all the truck tarps collected will be sent to this FREITAG lab for further process.
✔ cutting tarps : carve prime cuts into standardized 7.8-foot pieces
✔ washing up : they even use rainwater to clean up the tarps (FREITAG philosophy : thinking and acting in cycles!)
✔ bag design : use their templates and cutters to designs from the tarps by hand. to make sure that the rest of the pieces match as well, their templates are always marked with the model code and number of tarps to make (i.e. f17_1/7)
✔ finishing : except prototypes, all the sewing will be exported to experienced partners in switzerland, czech republic, bulgaria, france, portugal and tunisia to finish. afterwards, all the products will go back to switzerland and to be distributed in a crate according to the secret FREITAG color scheme. this is to make sure every drop of FREITAG exported is well-balanced in color and style.
✔ shooting : then it’s done! products are upload to online and distributed to partners like kapok!
check out more details of the lab at this link: https://www.freitag.ch/en/about/production
if you are new to FREITAG, we highly recommend you to visit our flagship store at NDC to try this amazing, fun and sustainable brand. we are sure you will soon be part of the f-community like us ! (more…)
