the aristocratic beauty - Stella Tennant

It's really amazing Ms Tennant looks this good in the Zara SS 11 campaign. First saw her in the AW10 Ferragamo campaign and was struck by her androgynous qualities. (See pic at bottom of this post). Despite being a mother of 2, she looked effortless in hopefully, very little make-up in the ad, yet exuded a certain grace and steely determination. Sometimes humptydump thinks its in the eyes. The image evoked a lazy morning in an English manor, with the protagonists taking their prized steed for a walk in the expanse of privately-owned land, inherited and reeking of old money. What say you?

Humptydump x POPIN at LASALLE College of the Arts - See you there!

Humptydump is so excited! Somebody in Singapore is finally working to get the crafty folks together! to commemorate this occasion, we contributed our little humble 1m by 1m flaglet, which will hopefully be sewn together with the rest by other craft-folks for the POPIN tea party. A little about our work: entirely hand-sewn handkerchiefs used by uncles in Singapore, it is a tribute to old times and how we lose our innocence over time. Remember we used to draw houses in this style when we were young?

We love our house, and our garden, and our pond, and the trees, and the apples and the sun!

The Eames DSW

humptydump stumbled upon the Eames DSW  (Dining Height Side Chair Wood) at the beautiful SPRUCE restaurant and were amazed at its level of comfort and design.

Charles & Ray Eames, 1950
Eames Plastic Side Chair is a contemporary version of the legendary Fiberglass Chair. It was produced in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art in New York's Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition and was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair.
a little more about the DSW here. If you are in Singapore, buy at XTRA

the revenge of the Dr. Scholl clogs! humptydump's weird predictions

we at humptydump are always strike by sudden inspiration, like a bolt of lightning on a clear day. this time, we predict that Dr. Scholl clogs will be staging a come-back this summer. Albeit retro-looking, they add a 70s vibe to any sundress. What's there not to like about this: House-wifey but so feminine, elongates the legs as it shows more skin, not so in your face as gladiators, and gives you instant height without killing your feet. yummy. and they are already infiltrating cotton-on stores. be inspired. perfect for a langourous afternoon. get the white ones before they disappear!

humptydump prowls haji lane and is proud to present ASSEMBLAGE

3 March 2011 - Haji Lane - Many think of this as a has-been, once a haven for too-cool-for-school folks, now clogged with shisha bars. Humptydump is out to prove this wrong. Move over, over-priced vintage wear shops, look out for ASSEMBLAGE and OHM MANI, our secret addresses for reasonably priced (S$59-S$79) vintage dresses. The sweetness is in the revenge when you finally locate these 2 shops, which are on the second floor of old dilapidated shophouses. A clue: Assemblage is just a floor above VIJITRA, another cool shop which stocks Thai-designer stuff while OHM MANI is just a stone's throw away from SALAD. Find them now! More proof below, see for yourselves, we are not lying. Fashion is not dead.
