YAH-LENG YU

INVENTORY SHIRT PROJECT — COLLAB N°6

INVENTORY presents the Bespoke Shirt Project: an ongoing initiative where a handful of creatives from different disciplines are invited to reinterpret the classic shirt, and create a bespoke piece that meets their everyday needs. In April, we welcome Yah-Leng Yu, Creative Director & Founder of Foreign Policy Design Group and Gallery & Co.

She has also published and run project initiatives Brand Guide: Singapore Edition, The Swap Show and The Space Program. Her favorite style inspirations come from industrial utility workwear aka Nigel Cabourn and Engineered Garments, Comme des Garçons’ unconventional yet brilliant twist of normal clothes, and the clean well-cut lines of COS.

Limited to 10 pieces. While making an appointment, click on 'The Yah-leng Yu' to secure your piece.

ABOUT THE ‘YAH–LENG YU’

The Inventory x Yah-Leng Yu shirt is best described as a reworked and streamlined version of a typical utility work shirt. The details – elbow patches, patch and slit pockets, and pen loops – are inspired by military and industrial workwear. Utilizing the chambray cotton fabric, this combo is a take on modern workwear with a cleaner more put-together look – an ideal shirt to be worn while getting things done without worrying about sweating through it, especially in our tropical climate.

CHIA WEI CHOONG

INVENTORY SHIRT PROJECT — COLLAB N°5

INVENTORY presents the Bespoke Shirt Project: a new, ongoing initiative where a handful of creatives from different disciplines are invited to reinterpret the classic shirt, and create a bespoke piece that meets their everyday needs. In March, we welcome Fashion Editor, Chia Wei Choong.

Limited to 10 pieces only. While making an appointment, click on 'The Choong' to secure your piece.

ABOUT THE ‘CHOONG’

“The idea was really simple…I just wanted to have a shirt that I would be able to wear while working. I'm always in t-shirt and jeans when I'm out shooting or running errands and comfort is key. It's roomy and boxy but the extended side tabs allow you to change the silhouette slightly by cinching in the waist. I really like pockets, big ones especially because I rarely bring a bag out, it's quite freeing knowing you have everything you need on you.” — Chia Wei Choong

CLIFFORD LOH

INVENTORY SHIRT PROJECT — COLLAB N°4

INVENTORY presents the Bespoke Shirt Project: a new, ongoing initiative where a handful of creatives from different disciplines are invited to reinterpret the classic shirt, and create a bespoke piece that meets their everyday needs. In February, we welcome Clifford Loh, Managing Editor of Vulture Magazine.

Limited to 10 pieces only. While making an appointment, click on 'The Clifford' to secure your piece.

ABOUT THE ‘CLIFFORD’

Black: An absence, the deep blank — but also the depths from which everything emerges. Inspired by Craig Green's minimalist treatment and his investigation of the uniform and utility, the collaborative piece was reinterpreted in a fluid and diaphanous approach. The result is an offbeat and elegant garment which encompasses a crew neck collar, self-fastening straps at sleeves and back, constructed using shirting fabric from Thomas Mason.

ABOUT DIE HARD LOVER

First inspired by the infamous DHL t-shirt by fashion label Vetements, mixed with a curious and keen venture into the formation of an independent label in the likes of A-COLD-WALL*, The Incorporated and GEO: Die Hard Lover was born.

'Die Hard Lover’ debuts as a collaborative piece, as well as the first release from the Die Hard Lover brand. The shirt is graphically themed around matters relating to the heart, in light of the brand's name.

The design is built by a three-color silkscreen finish. The font and layering technique reflects a similar style of an earlier t-shirt release— Nikes.

RETAIL PRICE
SGD $250*

TOMGIRL

 

ABOUT TOMGIRL
A shroud of mystery surrounds this dark noir pop duo fronted by Cherie Ko and Ted Doré. Inspired by classic film noir thrillers, motorbike ganglands, insidious femme fatales, TOMGIRL is a deadly assault of heavy guitar riffs, pounding drumbeats and fuzzy bass lines; a smouldering aural seductress of tempestuous desires. The world of TOMGIRL may thrive on noir, but it’s the playful juxtaposition of colour that brings a balanced visual aesthetic that captivates.

ABOUT THE 'CHERIE'
"I used to go thrift shopping a lot in search for that perfect 60's scooter mini dress. This design sums up everything that I love — exaggerated pointed collar, cinched waist, and that great mini length."
– Cherie Ko

ABOUT THE 'TED'
“I've always been a fan of '50s inspired fashion and I love the styling of vintage bowling and mechanic shirts of that era. So I wanted to create a design that had a very basic take on those styles.”
Ted Doré

RETAIL PRICE
SGD $200
