RISIS RE-MIX into new beginnings as a brand for every woman’s style for every day with the re-invention of its Iconic Orchids collections and launch of its first bi-annual seasonal collections for Spring/Summer 2022.
The masterfully designed and handcrafted symbols of elegance are unified in their celebration and immortalisation of Nature and Cultures of Singapore and Asia. Taking its cue from the fashion seasons, each piece conjures cherished and meaningful moments for the feminine, glamorous, sophisticated, and adventurous women of today.
Inspired by the four RISIS Orchid personalities, the RISIS’ Iconic Orchids capsule collection is refashioned into stylish embellishments of nature and culture by Sylvia Lim, founder-designer of Triologie, Goh Ling Ling, founder-designer of her eponymous label Lingwu, Elyn Wong, founder-designer of Stolen and famed local designer, Lai Chan.
RISIS X TRIOLOGIE: Iconic Phalaenopsis Cornu Cervi Orchid Collection
The three-piece collection artfully incorporates the Peranakan style tradition in the signature “Kerongsang-inspired” brooch, a long necklace with Aceh belt influence and an audacious statement ring.
Inspired by the vision of the Singapore flag with its five stars on the orchid’s five dark red petals and white lip, Singapore’s five core values of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality are manifested in handcrafted five-petal chains specially designed for this collection.
Known for translating elements of Peranakan culture into iconic motifs on fabric, this artistry is now extrapolated into 3-Dimensional metal artworks, making this collection a meaningful work of fashion art.
RISIS X LINGWU: Iconic Vanda Limbata Orchid Collection
Drawing inspiration from two sources in this creation, a compass and a Victorian men’s pocket watch, Ling shines the Iconic Vanda Limbata Orchid in a new light to materialise the Compass of Life Medallion. This meaningful construct merges the purpose of the compass in providing direction, and the Victorian men’s pocket watch which offers the dual function of timekeeping and everyday styling.
In this collection, timeless inspirations of the past are thoughtfully modelled into the signature long necklace, elegant short necklace, and bold statement ring – set with the guiding needle of Vanda Limbata Orchid in 24K gold.
RISIS X STOLEN: Iconic Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid Collection
Founder-designer Elyn Wong was propelled to articulate the delicate yet resilient beauty of the Vanda Miss Joaquim through her minimalist, fluid, and elegant style while upholding her vision to liberate women who seek authenticity in expression through her design.
Marrying the diverse styles and their transformability allows women with different style preferences to find her expression in each creation. Stolen delivers its promise – an ode to feminine allure in all its strength and grace – in this revitalisation of the Iconic Orchids Collections.
In this collection, the sophisticated Orchid blooms with a new life in the avant-garde design of Art Deco geometric lines and shapes – birthing the transformable signature necklace, intricate ear cuff, and cascading statement brooch with the RISIS’ Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid taking centerstage.
RISIS X LAICHAN: Iconic Ascocenda Sagarik Orchid Collection
Infusing culture and nature into timeless everyday styles, the RISIS’ Iconic Ascocenda Sagarik Orchid is reinvigorated with New Glamour in Lai Chan’s signature understated allure, a flair for glamour and whimsical imagination.
The three-piece collection that includes a dress, a bangle and a ring, is realised through the artful amalgamation of nature’s intricacies and immaculate attention to details presented in a splendorous tapestry of alluring flora.
Spring/Summer 2022 Collection – The Botanique
RISIS introduces a new approach to merging fashion, art, and nature with its Spring/Summer 2022 Collections – the Botanique.
Inspired by the buzz of life in the Botanic Gardens, home of the National Orchid Garden that boasts the cultivation of the world’s largest orchid collection, the Botanique features a diverse depiction of the architecture, birds, dragonflies, and butterflies vividly depicted in a five-piece collection.
A first for the brand, each piece in this collection boasts different accents instead of a single unifying motif. This allows the pieces to shine as exceptional individual embellishments but at the same time draw even more meaning as a whole.
The Botanique collection symbolises the entire ecosystem of style and craftsmanship – drawing inspiration from nature at Botanic Gardens and encapsulating national pride.
RISIS’ Spring/Summer 2022 Collections are now available at all RISIS boutiques and online.
Visit RISIS’ flagship boutique at ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, RISIS #B1-13, Singapore 238801. RISIS will be open Monday to Sunday (11 AM – 9 PM).
