Posts Tagged ‘Sea Apple’

Chinese New Year was coming, and in typical fashion I didn’t think about what the kids were going to wear. It’s usually a last minute thing with me.

This year though, Alyssa was in for a real treat. She received a dress as gift from Su Mei, the founder of Sea Apple. Sea Apple is a clothing line featuring fun, modern designs for children 0 – 6 years. The clothes are made with quality fabrics sourced from around the world, and designed with comfort in mind. Su Mei designs all the clothes and she certainly has a wonderful eye for detail.

The Jade cheongsam is just gorgeous! The fabric has this lovely subtle sheen that gives it a more formal air, but without going overboard. Even though it is a cheongsam, which is typically regarded as a Chinese New Year outfit, I can see this dress being worn for any special occasion, be it a birthday party, a family dinner at a restaurant, etc. It is a comfortable dress that allows Alyssa to run around freely. Style and comfort rolled into one – that’s my idea of a good dress! The japanese pearl shank buttons, the pleats at the bottom, the gathers at the bodice, these all come together beautifully in the Jade cheongsam.

Picking sea almonds. We didn’t see any sea apple trees that day, but saw plenty of sea almond trees.

Proof of how lovely the dress is? The husband actually noticed what his daughter was wearing! Haha! He even came right out to say, “This dress is really very nice. Where did you get it from?”

He never says such things :)

I was glad to have her appropriately dressed for the occasion, and her dress definitely drew many compliments.

Sea Apple has just launched it’s main line as well! You can go check out the clothes at the Boutiques Spring Edition fair at the F1 Pit Building from now until tomorrow (12 March). The main line includes clothes for both girls and boys.

For the main line, what is especially impressive is that Su Mei not only designed the clothes, she also created the print designs on the cloth the clothes are made out of! The theme is “A Day at Sea”, and all the prints have something to do with water or the seaside. Crabs scuttering across the beach, swimmers with flippers and swimming caps, fishing boats, a beach chair, and a map leading to nowhere. I love them all, and I had a very difficult time choosing which design to buy for Ellery and Alyssa. My favourite print was the fishing boats, but unfortunately it didn’t come in the dress design I was eyeing.

I finally settled on a dress with tiered skirt and swimmers for Alyssa (which I later found out was featured by Travelshopa in their section on whimsical prints), and a t-shirt with crabs for Ellery. Can’t wait for the kids to try it!

Disclaimer: Alyssa was given a dress as a gift but I decided to do a review on it. The clothes from the main line were paid for by me. All opinions are my own.
