Moleskine AW18 and SS19 preview in Singapore

Moleskine preview AW18 in Singapore

I am deeply grateful and honoured to be invited and flown in for the Moleskine AW18 and SS19 Preview in Singapore last Thursday.

I have been illustrating in my moleskine sketchbook for over 3 years and I have a fairly large collection of sketchbooks which you would have seen if you have followed my daily sketch challenge.

I fell in love with Moleskine because I love the feel of the sketchbooks and the brand fits in perfectly with my lifestyle. I travel and draw, and Moleskine encourages me to be part of this nomadic creative community.

ABOUT THE BRAND

Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin.Today, the brand Moleskine encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our mobile identity. Indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times: they are intimately tied to the digital world.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

We are in the privileged position of making objects that, by their very nature, are not disposable and will never become obsolete. In fact, Moleskine objects are expressly designed to be kept and treasured. Attachment only grows over time because Moleskine objects are made to be filled with the owner’s thoughts and feelings.

Nonetheless, our objects are made using paper and other materials which, along with the manufacturing process, have an inevitable environmental impact. Moleskine is actively engaged in taking every precaution possible to help limit this impact:

I recently visited the newly opened National Gallery in Singapore to check out my talented artist friend’s interactive art exhibition and play space. The Enchanted Tree House by Sandra Lee is definitely worth a visit. It is part of the Keppel Centre for Art Education located on Level 1 of the building.

The building is the historical former Supreme Court and City Hall buildings restored and redesigned to form the National Gallery.
