THE ARMOIRE: HIS AND HER WARDROBES
Intimate spaces to prepare yourself for the day ahead
Orchid chandelier and table lamp
Parisian glass artist Nathalie Ziegler flew to Singapore specially
to personally install her creation – an intricately crafted flower
glass chandelier – in the Penthouse. A master in the age-old craft
of glass-blowing, Ziegler has carved out stunning glass lighting
designs that have been exhibited at numerous art museums and
galleries in France, Los Angeles, London and Bangkok, amongst
numerous others. Ziegler adds an exquisite touch to all her artworks
by adopting intricate silvering techniques, a process which coats
her creations with a lustrous layer of reflective substance. Nature
is often her source of inspiration.
The flower table lamp, which will find a home on the dresser, is
also delicately mouth-blown and hand-cut by Ziegler herself. She
weaves in chromatic elements of copper and silver to the art piece,
achieving a captivating, lustrous facade that adds aplomb to any

Orsinia, Canata and Hangisi shoes
No wardrobe is complete without statement shoes, in particular,
Manolo Blahnik’s red hot pieces, including Orsinia, Canata and the
The first is an ode to the late Italian fashion icon Anna Piaggi, a
style writer who worked for such publications as Arianna, Vanity and
Vogue Italia. The Orsiania is a tribute to her peerless, striking
aesthetic with blue hair and dramatic make-up.
The Canata mainly draws design cues from Italian architecture —
specifically the interiors of the famous Villa Necchi Campiglio.
This pair of royal purple heels elegantly finished with yellow
floral motifs is Blahnik’s modern reinterpretation of the villa’s
lozenge stucco ceilings, walnut parquetry and heavy sliding doors.
These iconic crystal buckle Hangisi flats feature floral motifs that
draw inspiration from two Spanish films, ‘La Flor de mi Secreto’ and
‘Volver’. These films are lauded for portraying Dalí-esque
surrealism, 19th-century melodrama, pictorial realism, and classic
Hollywood noir. Each buckle, gloriously bejewelled with 144
high-quality crystals, is handmade in Italy by skilled craftsmen.
