This International Women’s Day, Lenskart, an omni-channel eyewear retailer in Singapore, collaborates with two inspiring local female designers, renowned embroidery artist Teresa Lim, also known as Teeteeheehee; and cake artist Samantha Quek, co-founder of Cupplets on a new collection.
The new collection launched on 4 March 2022, in line with International Women’s Day on 8 March, is to celebrate the achievements of those women who have chosen to take the route less travelled, and to inspire other women to follow their hearts and pursue their passions.
Collection by Teresa Lim, Teeteeheehee
Local illustrator and embroidery artist Teresa who is passionate about embroidery and textiles, assimilates her own modern take on femininity in this collection. Teresa seeks to tell a story of the struggles a girl encounters through her design of doodles, dots and dashes that symbolise tears and exasperation but there is a silver lining with the clever use of a Spring colour palette to signify hope and life, the light at the end of the tunnel.
The highlights of the designs are that the three staple icons found on the temples and nose pads of the spectacle convey a special message. The heart represents passion, lips represent empowering others through your words, and the star is the visual representation of the magic that is within each, and every one of us.
Collection by Samantha Quek, Co-Founder of Cupplets
While most artists prefer paintbrush as their primary tool in painting canvas, Samantha has taken her artistic flair to baking and turning sweet treats into edible art!
The free-spirited Samantha, created the collection as she had her eureka moment during one of her visits to the Botanical Gardens where she enjoys observing nature and translating them onto her work of art.
With the theme ‘Liberation’ in mind, she envisioned two designs that represent a variety of female personalities. The light blue design exudes a light-hearted and vibrant mood, while the other pair with dark and heavy designs speak of the challenges that are bound to encounter but the introduction of little flowers meant we can overcome the odds as they symbolise hope and positivity.
The limited-edition eyewear from Lenskart’s International Women’s Day collection is priced at $248 each and will be available in all Lenskart stores islandwide including the John Jacobs store at Tampines 1, except Lenskart IMM and Toa Payoh, as well as https://lenskart.sg/ from 4 March 2022 – while stocks last.
