SINGAPORE BRAND'S JUMPSUITS MAKE WAVES OVERSEAS
Home-grown lifestyle and clothing brand Matter is getting mentions in international media such as news website Huffington Post, thanks to its jumpsuits.
The jumpsuits, which come in two styles - The Classic and The All Day (above, in Horizon Blu)- have buttons at the waist that can be undone. Compared with wearing a traditional jumpsuit, this makes bathroom breaks less troublesome.
Matter's co-founder and managing director, Ms Renyung Ho, 31, says: "While designing the silhouette of the jumpsuits, we knew it had to go beyond style. Using a wrap and four-button closure, the jumpsuits give way to flexibility and ease of wear."
The Classic style has a wrap detail at the waist and a cut-out detail at the back. The All Day style has a casual drape and tapered cuffs for a tailored finish. Each is at $239 and available at shop.matterprints.com.
