We all know how hard it is to find the perfect pair of pants or dress. Sometimes, clothes just don’t look as good as they are on the racks and we tend to go through a few pieces of the similar designs just to find the perfect cut.
One of the coolest things about the contemporary fashion label is its focus on getting the perfect fit. The brand’s designers work through hours of sketches and fittings to build the perfect contours, down to the seam, pleat and pattern.
Pronounced klo-they, Qlothè carries sustainable pieces that also eclectic in design and minimalist. And a bonus? There’s free shipping and a 30 day free return, so there’s no worry about getting something that you might not like or a size that doesn’t fit. That makes your clothes more sustainable too!

A look at Hher’s latest collection and you’ll spot bright pops of colour contrasted against monochrome favourites. And that’s what hher is all about: confident, bold and unconventional.
Most of the collections feature minimalistic, eclectic, feminine yet androgynous styles. It might sound like a handful of verbs but that’s what makes this label so unique. After you give Hher a check, you can definitely expect a wardrobe filled with essentials and reinvented classics, all with that dash of a much needed pop of colour.
Adding another sustainable brand to the list, Akinn is a fashion label that strives to deconstruct fast-fashion with a Singaporean twist. The brand takes inspiration from stories of individuals and society in every collection, bringing together Singapore-based creatives and craftsman to collaborate and create pieces that appeal to the local fashionistas.

Based right here on this sunny island, PINKSALT is a home-grown swimwear label fit for any tropical native. Inspired by the unique and rare qualities of the Himalayan pink salt, the label features swim pieces that are elegant and stylish.
Their hope is to combine style with function and to turn urban silhouettes into timeless, evergreen pieces. Some of the pieces even look like you can wear for brunch with the girlfriends.
Take this Kelly Dress in purple for instance. This modern midi kaftan dress ($149) is astutely made with split sleeves detail and a removable belt to change up the look. A rather unique take on swimwear huh?
