For kapok, lifestyle brand and curator of discerning design, 2016 is a year to celebrate. Reaching its 10th year milestone in Hong Kong, it marks a decade of unearthing upcoming trends through the exploration of fashion and design, by collaborating with internationally renowned Singapore-based jewellery designer Carrie K.

kapok x Carrie K. Capsule Collection: Inspired Design to Capture Hearts
The Capsule Collection is a treasure trove of one-off artisan-crafted pieces that not only make powerful fashion statements, but ideal gifts with the collection’s timely release prior to Valentine’s Day. Taking inspiration from the Peranakan window hooks found on the shutters of Singapore’s iconic heritage shop houses, Carrie K. continues her quest to celebrate the beauty of imperfection and marvelling at the mundane of everyday life. Just as the hooks serve to keep the windows open, the artisan-crafted jewellery pieces open its wearers to new outlooks and perspectives.
The ring is a re-imagination of the window hook, made from silver. With two alternative finishes of rose gold-plated silver and yellow gold-plated silver, it is designed to be worn on its own or stacked.
Other coveted pieces include bracelets made of Carrie K.’s signature hand-branded leather available in four colourways: natural, blue, brown and black. The cuff is also inspired by the window hook in the tri-colour finishes.
Customers may personalise their bracelet clasps with letter stamping at an exclusive kapok workshop hosted by Carolyn herself on 30 January, 2pm to 4pm, making it the ideal opportunity to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone. *RSVP required via Facebook event page
