At Sea Apple, we believe in making clothing for children that lasts beyond a season - items that can be worn and treasured for a long time. This is why we design our Chinese New Year apparel and cheongsams with a timelessness in mind – something that can be festive enough for CNY, but also a beautiful occasion piece that will take you through the rest of the year and handed down when your kids are ready.
One of A Kind Fabrics, Delicate Craftsmanship
To do so, our team in Singapore begins by sourcing the best-quality fabrics and distinctive prints from top mills in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Japan, USA and Liberty London. Beautiful floral, botanical, art-inspired and graphical fabrics are then carefully coordinated in groups by texture and color and we begin a design journey of selecting the best for the silhouettes we wish to explore each new season. It’s a process that takes us months to complete and piece together, but we believe this offers the most distinctive, fun and one-of-a-kind take on a CNY collection.
To offer pieces that go beyond seasonality and trends, we experiment throughout our design process with different colors, fabrics and silhouettes that may not traditionally be used on a kid’s cheongsam or mandarin shirt. We keep our eye on the smallest of detail, by selecting the best trims, buttons and accessories like pearls, jade buttons, tassels and ribbons to create a timeless piece.
Coordinated Looks for the Family
While we started off designing only collections for children, we have added a small bespoke capsule of pieces for adults. These pieces allow parents to find family coordinated looks especially for the CNY season - a mandarin shirt or cheongsam that bears the same attention to detail and beautiful fabrication and print design.
Our CNY collection ships worldwide, and for free within Singapore with a minimum spend of $70.
