Friday, July 27, Singapore – FILA has teamed up with Korean fashion label D-ANTIDOTE to create a collection for Spring/Summer 2018, now available exclusively at the FILA VivoCity mega store. The launch saw in attendance D-ANTIDOTE designer & founder Mr. Hwansung Park, artistes and friends of FILA Apple Chan and Noah Yap (both of Ah Boys to Men fame), members of the media, influencers and guests of FILA Singapore.
D-ANTIDOTE, as its label name implies, positions itself as a refreshing option for consumers of the high-contemporary fashion segment who are seeking alternatives to luxury fashion or fast fashion. Label designer and founder, Hwansung Park, a Central Saint Martins College alum, incorporates elements inspired by Seoul and London into his designs.
The combination of D-ANTIDOTE’s rebellious identity along with FILA’s ubiquitous ‘90s style results in a collection that features oversized silhouettes, large printed logos, and retro inspired outerwear that is bang on trend. The looks are best paired with FILA waist bags, socks and the latest FILA footwear offering such as the FILA Ray or the FILA Disruptor II.
“We are excited to launch the FILA x D-ANTIDOTE collection in Singapore, a key fashion gateway city to Southeast Asia. The launch of this collection marks an inaugural step into introducing Singapore to D-ANTIDOTE’s unique South Korean fashion sensibilities, tailored for a diverse, global audience,” said Park.
The FILA x D-ANTIDOTE collection is part of FILA FUSION, a sub-brand of FILA launched in 2018. FILA FUSION incorporates retro and trendy elements into its designs, bringing streetwear to a new level. The D-ANTIDOTE x FILA collection is available exclusively at the FILA VivoCity mega store.
FILA VivoCity is located at #B1-12, 1 Harbourfront Walk, 098585. The store is open from Monday to Sunday, 10 am to 10 pm.
