Forbidden Hill – by Ruth Pestana & David Aumonier Forbidden Hill’s offerings include distinctive jewellery collections that fuse modern aesthetics with regional motifs. Inspired by Ruth’s multicultural Straits ancestry, the couple draw inspiration from the rich tapestry of Southeast Asian cultures, bringing traditional crafts and heritage together with contemporary style and materials. The brand’s unique creations are designed in Singapore at a studio near the original Forbidden Hill (today’s Fort Canning) and made regionally. Highlights include the silk bangles, which are vibrant pieces of arm candy with interchangeable inserts of pure Thai silk nested in precious metals, adding a gorgeous pop of colour and character to any outfit. The silk cuffs also come with interchangeable silk slides and medallions. Pair the bangles with the eye-catching Ban Zu earrings of coloured resin set in gold and rhodium ( pictured ), or the Gemstone earrings in designs inspired by Singapore locales in sterling silver and gold vermeil with interchangeable gems. And be sure to check out the cufflink collections too!

White Ginger – by Emma Femminile

White Ginger has been an expat favourite for many years, and while easy-to-wear feminine pieces are at the heart of the collection, the store is now a treasure trove of gifts, homeware and accessories too. Having recently opened a store in the UK, Emma continues to design styles and prints, which are then produced in Bali. She says that supporting Indonesian communities has never been more important to White Ginger, with each purchase helping to improve livelihoods through charitable initiatives. Bright, cheerful patterns have been at the forefront of recent collections. “Brighter colours can elicit a more positive mood, so we have focused on cheerful shades,” says Emma, who especially loves green. “Wearing green definitely gives me a boost of energy!” Visit the store in Tanglin Mall or the new White Ginger boutique in Joo Chiat; you can also go to the website to check out the latest styles. There’s fast and free delivery to Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. • #03-04 Tanglin Mall, 163 Tanglin Road • #02-06 i12 Katong, 112 East Coast Road
