A Label Called Depression

by cecylia on January 11, 2012

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I encountered a store in Singapore called Depression. And if you check out their website, don’t be alarmed by ‘Welcome to Depression.’ The label is a hip streetwear brand that Singaporean youths embrace. Pieces come in serious tones like black, grey and navy and are available for men and women. The irony is that Depression pieces are meticulously tailored and ingeniously designed. I was drawn to the orderly architectural lines and shapes the collections offered. The label is the brain-child of an ex-Art Director cum Writer duo who were depressed by their corporate lives and desperately needed a creative outlet. Kinda like how this blog was born, you simply can’t dress up working as a vet.

The collections names include ‘Dysfunction‘ and  ’Birth Defects’. No joke. And each clothing tag is in the shape of a drip bag. Seriously cool, for the medical geek in me. So I came home with my favourite piece from the Depression store. How could I resist this upside-down dress? Stretchy cotton, machine washable and it even comes with an upside down pocket!

Decided to keep things simple – well in the colour scheme anyway. Baseball caps are back with a vengeance, or should I say, tomboy twist, so I embraced this practical trend with open arms. Caps are not just to be married with varsity jackets, wear yours with simple outfits like a shirt and skinny jeans, use it to dress down a frilly frock or with an upside-down-dress.

Where: visiting the bank

Wear: baseball cap (similar one here), Depression dress, Mimco scarecrow necklace, vintage tassel necklace and bracelets, Nina Ricci bag (last seen here), Diana Broussard heels

PS. The Ciccone lipsticks are on their way to their winners. Thank you for everyone who entered the last give-away of 2011. An amazing competition will be up this Friday! Trust me, you do NOT want to miss out.

I love that people are not settling for depression (pardon the pun) and are finding creative outlets in their lives! Good on them for setting up the label and it sounds like a lot of fun! Great outfit- and does this mean I need to buy myself a baseball cap now? Looks like the sporty look is trending! x

I’ve always known I was a bit different and the fact that I loved the upside down dress before I even realized it was in fact an “upside down” dress just confirmed it. I love the scarecrow necklace and those Diana Broussard shoes are the best.
