Kevin Seah x Nackymade trunk show

Kevin Seah’s choice of mascot is a quirky one: the rabbit. But it is perhaps fitting that following this rabbit takes one plunging, Alice-in-Wonderland-like, into the sartorial world of one of Singapore's bespoke menswear tailors. Officially opened last Saturday, the new showroom is located right next door to their previous premises, and their extensive collection of garments and accessories promises the same exquisite design and fine craftsmanship that we have come to expect from the brand.



Continuing through the looking glass is the Nackymade Trunk Show hosted by Kevin Seah, held in conjunction with the opening. The show builds on the success of similar trunk shows held in collaboration with artisanal menswear establishment, The Armoury, as well as previous partnerships with Kevin Seah. Breaking away from the mindset that spectacles are mainly functional accessories, designs such as the dinosaur and crab-claw inspired temples give Nackymade’s products a sense of creativity and whimsicality. The traditional manufacturing methods, and the dedication to using only the best materials, make Nackymade the go-to brand for anyone who with an eye for detail. The man behind the brand, Naoki Nakagawa, has already made over 5000 spectacles for his international clientele, which include celebrity personalities such as Yoko Ono. 

I could wax lyrical about the offerings on show, but no better way to appreciate the artistry of both craftsmen than a trip down to the place itself. To borrow from Lewis Carroll’s magnum opus one last time, “What use is a book […] without pictures or conversations?”
