NY Chic With Her Velvet Vase’s Latest Collection | Clozette

Singapore online fashion retailer, Her Velvet Vase (HVV), has accumulated some very impressive “firsts” over a span of eight years. They were one of the firsts to grace the concept of blogshopping, operating their retail business on a blogging platform. They were the very first to migrate over to a dotcom, amidst a flourishing marketplace buzzing with blogshops to the point of saturation. And this time, HVV goes beyond the borders – New York City to be exact – and sets up office, and their sights on the U.S. fashion scene.

Clearly, HVV has always been ahead of its pack and we cannot be more proud of our homegrown label’s impressive endeavours. This week, we attended the press launch of the label’s New York Collection, inspired by the modern street style of Paris, Stockholm and – of course – New York.

“(The HVV woman is) charming, elegant and adventurous. She knows what she wants and she is always on the move,” says HVV co-founder Clare Chan. At the launch, we were treated to a visual feast of classic tailored pieces that celebrates versatility and femininity, from apparels and jewellery, to shoes and accessories.

The New York Collection features three series to satisfy every woman’s sartorial taste: the romantic Classic Pastels, the bold Black & Red series, and the understated Nude Palette. Together with some of our Clozette Ambassadors, Sydney and Celine, we wasted no time in picking out our favourite outfits. We’re all ready to take on New York in style!

And for HVV fans in Singapore, Malaysia, and The Philippines: don’t worry, you haven't been left out! Expect to see every single piece from their New York Collection available for purchase on hervelvetvase.com over the next weeks.

There are times when you want to go for something other than your monochrome, basic, or trendy pieces. When that need arises, why not try for a casual glam look?  Casual glam ensembles are all about looking effortlessly put together while still managing to stand-out from the crowd. It may seem overwhelming because of the word "glam" but really, all you need are a few classy pieces and a touch of elegance.  

Check your wardrobe now for these 5 key wardrobe glam-basics to achieve that casual glam look!


No Fuss Clothing

Casual glam is all about looking effortless and your best bets to achieve this are either a romper, jeans & shirt combo, or a dress. This Pampas Leaf Cocoon Dress from Warehouse  is good option. The color is not too loud, the pattern is stunning, and the silhouette is simple. 

Heeled Shoes

(Get It Here)

You can opt to wear flats or sneakers if you want, but nothing can make you feel as glam as a pair of heeled shoes. This one from Nasty Gal caught our eye as it's one part loafer, one part mule, and two parts obsession. The Vevey Mule is made in black vegan leather and features fringe overlay detail, strap design, block heel, and open toe--a great companion to no-fuss clothing pieces. 

Statement Purse

(Get It Here)

Break the monotony of your no-fuss pieces with a statement purse. You can go for something simple and structured but in a bright colour such as this one from Liquorish. It's made from a leather-look fabric with a smooth matte finish, and buckle detail for that head-turning look. 

Eye-Catching Accessory

(Get It Here)

Be seen from a mile away with an eye-catching pair of sunnies or something like a wide-brimmed hat. This one by Stella McCartney has that turbo-charged 1960's flair, that make you look like a prime, sartorial sophisticate. 

Elegant Jewelry

(Get It Here)

An elegant piece of jewelry is timeless and a great add-on to any outfit. Such is this Shark's Tooth bangle from Ki-ele. A richly textured shark's tooth charm bathed in fine 14-karat gold for a luxurious feel all throughout the day. 



Herschel Supply, in collaboration with fashion retailer Liberty of London, has finally released their Herschel Supply for Liberty of London Women's Collection in The Philippines and we are in love! All floral and inspired by the print designs from Liberty of London, this new collection is particularly sized to compliment the female silhouette. 

Sporting the Donna Leigh Print (a rich background with contrasting watercolor painted flowers) and Deborah Print (Liberty’s interpretation of Art Nouveau), this collection goes beyond just its eye-catching sensibilities--presenting instead a range of backpacks that blends art and practicality. 

The collection features three new backpack styles: the Ware, Hanson, and Dawson. Each are crafted with lightweight, soft-touch fabric, and finished with traditional vegetable tanned leather detailing. Adorning each piece is a combination of zippered interior and side-access sleeves, slender adjustable straps, and polished silver tone hardware.

Ware (PHP 4990); Hanson (PHP 5490); Dawson (PHP 6790)

At its essence, the collection has stayed true to Herschel's goal of creating timeless pieces with a strong regard for detail. And in this, the collaboration makes perfect sense--with Liberty of London bringing its iconic prints into the mix, resulting in a collection rooted in a long-standing artistic tradition and modern practicality.

The Herschel Supply for Liberty of London Collection is now available at all Herschel Supply Boutiques in The Philippines located at SM Megamall, SM North-Annex, SM Aura, Trinoma, and Alabang Town Center.
