Buys - What's blowing into your wardrobe this Fall? Part 3

In sunny Singapore, Fall focuses on Tribal and homegrown brand, alldressedup offers up a year end collection that answers the call of the wild. 

Polynesian tribal traditions produce an atelier-like collection that is exotic, sophisticated and stunning.  Inspired by tribal tattoos, their environment, adornments and weapons – sand, forest green, camo, ash grey, olive, burnt orange, dried blood, turquoise, ivory, anthracite,
oxidized silver, hematite, antique bronze, and dark ink tones. 

There are some interesting details to the collection this season, one of which is pin tucks that contour fabric to the body for jersey tops and dresses. 

The other is threadwork incorporating matt metallic sequins applied onto areas like necklines and sleeves, adding a hint of casual glamour. Other innovations include braided cords used not only to add detail but also to bunch the fabric of jersey items, creating fluid drapes and flattering folds. 

Look out for bags and accessories that are inspired by tribal adornments with edgy,  modern finishes. 

Slouchy nappa leather and hand-knitted bags also feature  with structural details like matt, metallic hardware, tribal scarification motifs, and knotted leather, metallic snake chain and meshcord shoulder straps. 

Match the outfit with accessories including  necklaces adorned with feathers, wire mesh, metallic snake chains and petersham ribbons all corded together into exotic statement pieces.
