In this last article for Brands To Watch, we’d like to take a peek into the most recent collection from Reckless Ericka — Voyage, an adventure blending the modern women’s fashion with Singaporean history. Are you ready to get on this adventure with us?
Voyage is a collection released fresh in 2022 by the good people of Reckless Ericka. Voyage is typically associated with boundary pushing, adventure, discovering new territory. The island of Singapore was made known to the world after adventurers set sail to explore the world, one of whom was a Chinese explorer from the Qing Dynasty in the 15th century. Voyage is a collection that blends the modern women’s fashion into this part of the Singaporean history. You will experience vibrant colours along with their signature fit and flare silhouette and feminine cut — resulting in a collection where the modern women’s champions for boundaries to be redefined.
The Voyage Collection uses prints inspired from The Mao Kun Map, which dates back to more than 600 years ago. In order for Reckless Ericka to incorporate this inspiration into their designs, permission from the National Library of Singapore was sought, which goes to show how significant the efforts the team has put in for this collection.
Blending Fashion with Topography
The Pleated Swing Skirt is one of the first that we found absolutely stunning.
Inspired by the colours of landscape and topography, this A-line silhouette pleated skirt helps to elongate your silhouette, which we think is a signature Reckless Ericka look.
Styled with the skirt is a White Flutter Cropped Wrap Top, giving a very clean look with a tinge of playfulness, without taking away the focus from the vibrance of the skirt.
Loving how the skirt flows around with motion!
Sailing Charts in Fashion
The Sweetheart Cropped Top with Criss Cross Sash again uses an all-over print inspired from the sailing charts. With the overlapping panels, contrasting Taupe sash and sleeveless design, this piece would be great if you’d like to accentuate your waistline.
Pair it with a maxi dress with contrasting solid colour for a different look!
And since it's Lunar New Year Season…
Powerful… Dangerous… Not to be messed with! While the colour red tends to exude (vibe with) such emotions, the Wrap Short Dress with Contrast Sash also gives off that little playful look, with its wrap design coupled with ball sleeves.
While the colour screams for attention, the sash is definitely the statement piece in this look.
But hell of a voyage!”
So there we have it!
We bet you’d agree it’s been quite a ride with Reckless Ericka. With Reckless Ericka, it is more than just a piece of clothing you don, but are conversations you can have. Whether you hail from the sunny islands of Singapore, or an avid traveller, a Reckless Ericka is definitely a must have if you love stories to tell!
Like the rabbit hole Alice stumbled into, Reckless Ericka is anything but reckless, and has been a wonderland for us at Style Portal. We simply love the incorporation of food culture and history into their design concept, intertwining important facets of the Singapore into our clothes. We simply look forward to seeing more from Reckless Ericka!
On behalf of Team Style Portal, we’d also like to wish all a very Happy Lunar New Year!
