Scarf Joo Chiatby Santhi & Sari Tunas for Binary Style
Peranakan culture is one of the heterogeneous identities of Singapore, this crossroads on the trade routes of diverse peoples and nations. Roaming around in Joo Chiat, where powerful matriarchs once reigned, one can still find the manifestations of this hybrid culture at its best: flamboyant facades with intricate Art Nouveau inspired architecture detailing, enriched with Chinese symbolism. This design captures the spirit of Peranakan culture along with the Phoenix’s earthly representation, the peacock.
37.4 inches, Soft Chiffon

The brains behind the brand are the bespectacled twin sisters, Santhi and Sari Tunas, both trained architects. Binary Style’s successful Singapore Stories collection is a tribute to Singapore. The Indonesian native, Singapore-based twins have gained intimate knowledge of their current home. Using scarves as a medium to narrate everything Singaporean from early to recent developments, from multiculturalism to natural diversity, the twins capture the known and the lesser-known stories from various locales.More information on the designer >>
