Christmas is all about extending the warmth of one’s home to friends and family, and it’s a gesture that will be all the more significant during these unprecedented times – which is why lifestyle brand Ove, and local fashion label Ying have collaborated to present The Time Capsule, a novel retail experience where shoppers will get to explore a “home” filled with various themed rooms.

In step with promoting the works of the local creative industry, each room will be curated by a Singapore-based artist or creative. The spaces will host a collection of lifestyle goods that best represent its theme, with highlights including The Garden Room, a verdant space curated by celebrated botanical artist Lucinda Law, who’s best known for her watercolour paintings of indeginous flora. Meanwhile, The Grand Living Room will feature an art piece by local influencer and artist Willabelle Ong. 

There’ll also be activities for guests – customise a signature scent with bespoke perfume service Maison 21G; sign up for an experiential Jesmonite workshop with Chokmah; or even try your hand at calligraphy workshops with The Letter J Supply.

There will also be the launch of Ove and Ying’s collaborative lifestyle set christened Autumn, which collects a luxurious pleated kimono and a matching ceramic plate. Both feature a hand-painted ginkgo leaf design from Ying – inspired by the concept of fluidity, and how the season of autumn is a time of change, and hope. As the brands shared in a release, “Inspired by the colours of the Ginkgo leaf in autumn, we hope that this collection will bring a sanguine optimism for 2021.”
