The August 2016 edition of L’OFFICIEL Singapore turns the spotlight on identity, heritage, culture and all things Asian.
South Korean hyperstar Sandara Park takes the lead in this month’s edition of L’Officiel Singapore. The bona fide entertainer – the 2NE1 member has a whopping 4.2 million followers on Instagram and has reigned supreme in music, television and film – fronts the magazine in a stunning cover and fashion editorial shot by Joel Low, and reveals a layer of sensitivity and seriousness seldom seen by the public.
Take a note or two from Asia’s brightest and most celebrated architects as a guide to making the coolest sartorial choices now, see how our favourite fashion designers have looked to (and still scour) the East for inspiration, and witness the glory of Chinese couturier Guo Pei’s stunningly realised creations. Plus, join Manila-born photographer Chuck Reyes as he captures five of the biggest next-gen Asian models on the streets of New York, garbed in this season’s comfiest togs.
In the lifestyle section, designer Jarrod Lim opens up about Crystalline, his collaboration with Royal Selangor, while the L’Officiel Singapore team explores cool spaces in Asia (including the cool relaunched K+ Curatorial Space at Scotts Square), delves into the growth of Christian art in Asia since the 13th century in an eye-opening exhibition at the Asian Civilisations Museum, and heads up to a little piece of paradise in Phuket that has seen the likes of G-Dragon, Snoop Dogg and Rita Ora.
“Is Orientalism pastiche or homage? And do we subconsciously expect Asian designers to downplay cultural codes so as to achieve an ‘international’ aesthetic, or do we celebrate their birthright to reference their heritage and culture? This issue we proudly do the latter,” says Grace Tay, Managing Editor of L’Officiel Singapore. “Join us as we celebrate Asia.”
The 2NE1 member Sandara Park dazzles both on screen and off – watch as she works the camera in this behind-the-scenes video.
You’ve seen Dara hanging out with her feline friends, now we take you behind the scenes of L’Officiel Singapore’s exclusive photoshoot with the Korean superstar, who was every bit the charmer with her contagious smile and charismatic demeanour.

Previews are out on magzter for L’Officiel Singapore! We won’t be posting all the pictures, even though we’ve bought the magazine, until the physical magazines are out next week.. ❤
The photoshoot pictures are awesome, they really did an awesome job! The photos are a mix of feisty, edgy, bordering eccentric, but still fashionable, chic, and sexy! Dara proves that one can show the bare minimum of skin, and yet still be sexy.. ❤ I love it! Please watch out for more pics as soon as the magazines hit the stands! ❤
And oh by the way, they titled it “Oh! Dara” the same name as the blog, and IDK, it just tickled me.. XD
