A Chance of a Lifetime: City in Nature


Retailing exclusively at Design Orchard, Singapore

The occurrence of greenery and foliage when you stroll along the street or look out of a motor vehicle is not by chance – it is due to the foresight and perseverance of our urban pioneers, lead by our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, to always balance development and greenery hand in hand.

I hope that despite the disruptions that Singapore will have to navigate going forward, let us always remember to maintain and grow our green and blue spaces.   

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.
