“We aim to capture the richness of the known and lesser known stories from Singapore’s diverse locales; connecting with people through our designs.”
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 >>
