Olivia Burton take inspiration from vintage and catwalk trends to create a range of stylish and covetable accessories. Olivia Burton pieces are feminine, fun and collectable.â€‹ Its concept store is now open at ION Orchard.
The British accessories brand was founded by best friends and ex-fashion buyers Jemma and Lesa, who met on their first day at the London College of Fashion. They bonded over a love of design, a passion to start their own business and a mutual struggle to find a watch that they wanted to wear.
Lovers of vintage, the pair would trawl through antique markets to find timepieces, but, whilst beautiful, the cogs would often stop and start. After graduation, the girls went on to pursue successful careers in fashion buying, clocking up time at diverse fashion brands such as Topshop, ASOS and Selfridges. All the while, the idea of going it alone was gathering momentum until the day in 2011 when Jemma and Lesa made the leap, quit their jobs and set about creating their own beautiful, unique watches from the kitchen table.
Named after Lesa’s great aunt whose spirited approach and energy was a huge inspiration to the girls, Olivia Burton debuted its first collection in September 2012. Its covetable, collectable styles, which now include a striking jewellery line-up, are inspired by vintage finds and the latest catwalk trends.
Designs are brought to life at the brand’s pretty East London studio, where Jemma and Lesa work closely with their small team to ensure every piece is tweaked to perfection. Think intricate hand-illustrations, beautiful references to nature and must-have colour palettes.â€‹
Modern French Cuisine takes centre stage in the recently revamped fine dining restaurant, Gunther's, which is helmed by award-winning chef Gunther Hubrechsen.
Residing at the swanky Purvis Street since August 2007, Gunther’s bring sophisticated Modern French Cuisine to the chic fine dining scene. The meticulously-crafted restaurant, whose name yields the personality of Gunther himself, the man behind this establishment, depicts the realization of a dream that he has over the years - that is a place to call his home.
The revamp of the restaurant is a contemporary interpretation of art nouveau woodwork. An art style that originated in Belgium and gained popularity in France around 1900, it was fitting that Belgian Chef Gunther Hubrechsen of fine Modern French Cuisine was drawn to it and wanted his Singapore-based restaurant new interior to evoke luxury through the delicate curved forms of the art nouveau style.
Gunther’s food is down-to-earth – like the man himself – yet deftly executed to perfection with elegance and finesse. His gift lies in his ability to re-interpret classic dishes and flavours, breathing new life into them in terms of both taste and presentation. He devises unusual flavour combinations with delicate sensitivity, resulting in dishes that are pleasurable to eat, yet a novel to experience. Equally central to his culinary distinction is his passionate belief in plating each dish to heighten its visual appeal. The chef frames each of his dishes with an artist’s eye and constantly aims to fashion gastronomic works of art that pleases both eye and palate.
