Some of you may remember the very first Miss Reef Bikini held at the Reef Wakefest in Singapore last July where the participants were parading around in lycra athletic tops and Reef sandals from Argentina.  Cool sandals eh?  You may also have seen the brand if you shop enough at The Heeren Shops.

Well, they’re cool indeed.  After all, Reef is the world’s leader in authentic, surf-inspired good quality footwear.  Don’t believe?  Just look up their website or at Active Sandals which carries the largest selection of Reef sandals

If you’re looking for unique, one-of-a-kind vintage jewelries, you might want to check out ArtisansMarket.com, a website selling unique handcrafted art and gifts by independent artisans.  Or better still, if you’re an artist with interesting creative pieces, you should try to expand your market using this website.

Desigual: funky Spanish label

I was on the prowl for some interesting streetwear and was so happy to find Desigual, a young stylish Spanish label at n 1-18/19/20 Vivo City.  Not only do they have some really upscale trendsetting streetwear for the ladies, their man’s and kiddies’ collections are very cool too. 

What I like is that their designs are really funky with an attitude.   Think contemporary art on fashion as each piece truly makes a unique statement by itself with iconic prints and pop art motifs.   Even the store is such an inspiration.  Definitely no mass market stuff here.
