See how our younger generation reimagine the “Samfoo” and bring it back into the contemporary woman’s wardrobe! “Samfoo” is the Cantonese term for an everyday attire that was popular during our grandma’s era. It consists of an upper garment and a pair of loose trousers that are usually made out of the same fabric.
Samfoo: Reimagined in Modern Singapore, a physical installation displaying commissioned crochet pieces by crochet artist Hayley Sim from Softly Made Cottage. These pieces are also accompanied by photographs taken by Hazel Sim through monitor screening/printed on canvas. Each Samfoo inspired piece has its own story that appeared in familiar places portraying modern living in Singapore, and reflected in the choice of yarn blend, colour, silhouette and the feminine form.
