Talk About Colour

Be it Habaneros, Jalapenos, Chillies or Peppers, the spicy vibrant colour of these hotshots are what I would use to describe the young German label Smeilinener by 20-somethings - Lisa Mischa and Brettel Woeste's Spring Summer 2010 collection in Madrid Fashion Week.
Smeilinener's Spring Summer 2010 collection's first piece on the runway was an oversized yellow plaid schoolgirl's dress with a giant frilly heart detail covering the entire chest. This reminds me of a Singaporean all-time favourite pastry - the pineapple tart. I would like to advise all who stop over in Singapore to NOT purchase tacky and overpriced Singapore Merlion pineapple tart cookies you would find at DFS Galleria and all other tourist rip-off locations (usually central, town area) and make the informed decision to buy authenthic cheap and tasty pineapple tarts from islandwide soy bean milk retailer Mr Bean or off-the shelve homegrown brand - Glory, which you can find in any good supermarket. Pineapple tarts are usually eaten in excess during Chinese New Year, Hari Raya and any other day you feel like it.
Back to Smeilinener's Spring Summer 2010 collection, the last few runway pieces were multicoloured with key shades of rich greens and red silk featuring embroided mandarin ducks which had a very Chinese influence to it and big circular prints you would typically find on a Japanese kimono.
