Go frost yourself

#WednesdayWishlist: White as snow

Cai Mei Khoo, Editor in Chief: Achilles Sneakers by Common Projects

I’m more of a flats/ sneaker-wearing kinda girl as I find that 6-inch heels hamper my efficiency – more time is spent tottering around or trying to find my balance in them than actually being able to run, jump and leap (like I usually do) all over town. These all-white sneakers from Common Projects are currently on the top of my sneaker wish-list, ideally customised with a print (red lips and leopard spots maybe?) by Donald Robertson.

Jason Lim, Fashion Editor: Big Hero 6 Projection Baymax Action Figure

Big Hero 6 ranks third in my top five favourite movies ever. The fact that Baymax was purpose built to help people and was instrumental in helping Hiro overcome his loss… makes me tear up everytime. Christmas always gets me thinking about the importance of family and this year, mine will unfortunately not be together to celebrate. Baymax would serve as a constant reminder to count my blessings, to better appreciate the most important people in my life and to finish every conversation we have with an “I love you”.


Loh Wei Yeen, Fashion & Beauty Writer: Look 4 from Balenciaga Resort 2016

Oversized fur coats make me nervous: I risk looking like an overgrown poodle, and as much as I love foxes (Arctic foxes!), the idea of wearing that much fur on me does niggle at the back of my mind. Hence this Balenciaga Resort’16 look would be my go-to, layered getup this season. I’m especially digging the floral jacquard coat that’s definitely made for my favourite kind of Christmas getaways—preferably no subzero temperatures but still cool enough to allow me to layer at ease. 

Tan Su Fen, Editorial Assistant: Stretch-woven jumpsuit by Cushnie et Ochs

Taking cue from Taylor Swift—remember the Balmain white jumpsuit our muse of the month rocked at the Billboard Music Awards?—I will gladly take this bold yet feminine Cushnie et Ochs number out for a day-to-evening spin. Going with the theme of winter whites, I’d likely pair this sleek beauty with minimal accessories and a punch of metallic (preferably silver).


Jessica Fang, Culture Writer: A stay at the Kelo-Glass Igloo of Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Finland

Pure white snow, all-round—the Kakslauttanen Igloo West Village in Finland is as white as white can get. I’d opt for the full-blown snow igloo, but perhaps the less-icy Kelo-Glass Igloo, a wooden cabin with a glass dome that gives you an eyeful of the grounds’ snowy landscape and maybe even an aurora or two at night, seems a lot more inviting. I’ve never experienced snow before, so I suppose if there was one extreme that I’d immerse myself in for a first-time experience, it would most definitely be at this gorgeous, snowy, Arctic resort.
