OTTAIPNU by Masaru Suzuki (for Women)
OTTAIPINU is the one of the major lines of textile artist Masaru Suziki’s works. The designs consist of bold patterns, and colourful and vivid layered patterns. Most of the motifs featured on these products are inspired by nature, plants and animals. That brings warm energy and lively atmosphere into its towels, bathmat, umbrella, handkerchief and other functional fabrics for everyday use.
Women’s Relaco Shorts available at all stores. Women’s Yukata will be available at 313@Somerset, Bugis+, Changi Airport, ION Orchard, Liang Court, Suntec City, VivoCity, and online from 12 May
Haibara UT (for Men and Women)
Sasuke the First started selling washi, or traditional Japanese paper, at a shop in Nihonbashi in 1806. His store, known as Haibara, sold ganpishi, a special type of smooth Japanese paper used for ink prints. The paper was an immediate hit among the city’s academics, who wanted something stylish. Ganpishi dominated the market and made Sasuke’s shop a success. Today, Haibara sells specialty paper from a range of regions and intricately designed paper crafts. Chiyogami (decorative paper), kinpu (ceremonial envelopes), uchiwa (fans) and other items that were designed by Zeshin Shibata, Yumeji Takehisa and other influential artists of the past have been popular for years. Haibara also reprints from original plates and employs traditional methods such as woodblock printing to produce kinpu and writing paper.
