About the ‘A Chance of a Lifetime’ collection

Singapore’s founding father Mr Lee Kuan Yew once described the opportunity to remake Singapore as ‘a chance of a lifetime’. He did indeed seize this chance, and together with his fellow urban pioneers, built a nation when there was none. This collection is inspired by Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s visionary plans for Singapore, and celebrates the nation’s transformation over the years and the journey of creation of the Singapore that we see today.
