A collection which has caught my eye lately is the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection, Stripped, by Singaporean label Max.tan. The collection starts off with a rude riot of color applied to a single print. The label describes the collection as "akin to drawing the first breath on a freshly lit cigarette, which then capitulates to the darkening hues of ash grey to black".
Max.tan is not meant for plain Jane. The ideal Max.tan girl is slightly quirky and edgy, not afraid to stand out from the crowd, and loves playing with the boundaries of masculine and feminine.
For a relatively new local label, it is doing well, with 5 stores in Singapore alone, and 2 internationally, with one in Germany and another in Sweden.
Get your hands on Max.tan at Mandarin Gallery #04-26, 33 Erskine Road #01-10, or The Cathay #01-18 in Singapore. If you happen to be in Germany, head down to Laufsteg No.11, Kirchgarten, or Galleri Demo, Munkbrogatan in Stockholm, Sweden.
