KLARRA X STRANGERS REUNION

Before leaving for London, I was invited to a little collaboration between local label, Klarra and one of Singapore’s favourite cafes, Strangers Reunion for a night of fun-filled laughs, great conversations, food and beautiful clothes. We got a taste of the new menu at the café for dinner, specially curated by founders, Melvin and Ryan. I was pleasantly surprised by how these simple dishes one would expect during brunch to be completely jazzed up to bring a mix of unique flavours and textures. Favourites included the Beetroot Salad which is a colourful combination of fresh greens, smashed avocado, red turnip, pistachios, croutons and artichoke tossed in a citrusy dressing. Their all day breakfast featured a lot of perfectly done eggs but each with its own twist. From the Ocean Trout on potato hash to beetroot corn fritters with poached pear.

Strangers Reunion is one of my favourite to-go for their selection of waffles which can also be found at their sister café beside the restaurant Waffle Slayer. So I was saving my stomach my dessert even though I’ve never been a dessert person. The Chocolate Panna Cotta and Berry Ricotta Hotcake were all on point. The pancakes were the fluffiest I have ever had. Singapore is filled with these creative cafes popping out with the menu focusing on brunch but I’ve never really found many of these places serving quality food that was not only deliciously satisfying but also value for money. My experience with Strangers Reunion was definitely putting it at the top of the list. Beautiful interiors, delicious food and great prices.

The night was also to celebrate the launch of my dear friend Beatrice’s new Spring/Summer collection for her brand, Klarra and I couldn’t be more proud. I love that Klarra is all about quality over quantity, having worked closely with the brand for some time on the designs. Beatrice makes sure that quality is the number one factor in her clothing, and that comfort is key while still bringing out stylish clothes for everyone.

I wish I had more images of the clothing but we all got to bring back a couple of pieces so I am positive a lot of Klarra will be popping up here and on Instagram. Here I am wearing one of my favourite pieces, the Sanchez Neoprene Sweater dress. Perfect with the front pockets and added detail of the side zips on the shoulder. Wearing a mini dress in London's cold is no easy feat but with some knee-high boots and an extra fluffy scarf, I am good to go. The new collection focuses a lot on classy basics that never go out of style so you get functionality and versatility out of the clothing. This is something that has always been important to me when I shop for pieces for my wardrobe. Big thanks to Beatrice and Ryan for the lovely evening, I had a great time trying out the pieces from the collection, stuffing myself silly with so much food and catching up with my girlfriends.
