Singapore fashion label A.K.A Wayward has launched it’s first special project with the creation of its STACK bracelets, a limited edition range that are all individually numbered and packaged.
The idea behind the name is, obviously enough, the ability to “stack” as many as you like, hopping on the bandwagon of the “arm party” trend where fashionistas wear as many bracelets, bangles, watches and cuffs on their arms as possible and still be able to lift a champagne glass.
A.K.A Wayward’s STACK bracelets are a luxe version of the hippy-dippy woven friendship braid created from leather, waxed nylon cord, multi-plaited cord, metal charms and hardware; each one is distinctly different and comes in it’s very own numbered Karter Scientific test tube with it’s number stamped on a porcelain seal.
“We built everything from scratch in this project, from the display stand, to the assembling of STACK in its test tube plus putting on the hangtags, the porcelain seals that were stamped and fired in the workshop, down to assembling the STACK packaging boxes,” says A.K.A Wayward designer Mun Foong.
“You could call this a labour of tough love for us as we wanted to create a product with soul and not just about the pretty packaging. Every weekend for about a month was spent on the finer details of this project, we were just two girls with power tools and the love of carpentry trying to be as good as Jesus. Working with a small run not only means higher production costs and lower margins but to us, it also signifies that we can give every STACK our fullest attention.”
The STACK bracelets come in different sizes for men and women and although only available in limited numbers can still be picked up from Singapore stores Actually, Cumulus, Threadbare & Squirrel and WanderWonder. But get in quick if you want one or you’ll miss out!
STACK bracelets by A.K.A Wayward are available in limited numbers from Threadbare & Squirrel, 660 North Bridge Road (Bali Lane); Actually, 29A Seah Street; Cumulus, #02-14 Wheelock Place and WanderWonder, 65A Haji Lane.
