For a season it’s calling “High Summer Cruise 2013”, Singapore fashion label Triologie is launching a series of five capsule collections based on an imagined meeting between Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly and Hubert de Givenchy; a concept that translates into neat dresses and separates meant to be inspired by the 1950s and early 1960s.

So, no matter what your style, there will be something in one of the five capsule collections from Triologie that will suit your wardrobe.
The same goes for prints and colour ways; there are figurative prints of women with umbrellas, bicycles and luggage, as well as more geometric shapes in monochrome tones. The colours range from black, white and beige to purples, greens, navy and splashes of red.
