Mies Nobis is the unique jewellery label by Berlin based, Australian designer Millicent Nobis.
“I am inspired by the shapes and forms of the more permanent matter that lingers long after mortal death; human and animal bone, horns and teeth. Elements that have been reshaped and reused throughout history in the form of adornment, bringing new life to inanimate ‘dead’ matter. Reworking shapes and imagery through a process of illustration and sculpture I aspire to reflect and refine these structures into modernised reincarnations, hand crafted in precious metals as wearable art. Being the daughter of an architect, the ‘less is more’ philosophy of modernist Mies van der Rohe is ever at the forefront of my mind in terms of application.”
This beautiful label has always distinguished itself for its statement pieces, with its sculptural avant-garde design and contrasting character for each individual piece, its outcome is an amazing collection of headbands, necklaces, rings and cuffs. Also, Millicent has used brass for the ‘Skellet’ collection, a material that tarnishes over time and gives the jewellery a special look and patina. As limited edition, some pieces of the ‘Skellet’ collection are also available in sterling silver.

ARC is founded by Singapore-born, Australian-educated designer Islean Valath who are inspired by the curves that govern the female form. This can be seen in her S/S13 collection, with the use of contrast piping and mandarin bodies and collars that add the oriental touches, while maintaining the concept of emphasizing the curves of the women with with well-tailored “arc”-shaped cutouts.
The ARC aesthetics lies along the vision of juxtaposition, presenting the contrast between hard, strong, tough, with the soft, delicate and fluid; creating designs with a mix of feminine and masculine elements that echoes the balance we see in modern women.
ARC’s Spring Summer 2013 is all about recreating bodycon aesthetics with minimalist shapes and a touch of oriental; with elements that remind us within femininity, there is often a bit of an alpha-male in each of us.
ARC S/S’13 Collection is available at blackmarket no.2 Orchard Central #02-10.

For the AL&ALICIA Spring 2013 Collection, the team took a trip to La La Land on a self-discovering journey and exploration of dreams – inspired by a little bit of riot and a devil-may-care attitude. The joyful start-of-spring feeling is channeled into a range of lightweight separates of silk cottons, chambray and tencel. These designs are clean and unfussy, daring you to mix and match in any, and every way you wish. The sophistication of the styles is set off by the collection’s spirited palette of dusty apricots, peaches and corals and complementing icy grays and dreamy blues.
“It’s emotional and it’s about being carefree. Wearing these pieces we hope, will be like living a free-spirited novel set in the La La Land of your dreams.”
In addition, take some time to appreciate their delicately designed Spring’13 lookbooks. Featuring a letter-pressed cover and a ‘pull-out-and tear’ poster for keeps. Lookbooks are available for grabs at Blackmarket no.2 Orchard Central!

Vintage Peepers is a collection of vintage eyewear that spans from the early 30′s to the late 90′s. From the back alley of Turkey, to the estate sales in London, Vintage Peepers leave no stones unturned in the search for the perfect symmetry and style that only vintage eye wear possess since 2009.
Vintage pieces are only as good as when you get to share them with the world. The collection at Blackmarket is a specially selected set of 17 valued pieces from the vaults of Vintage Peeper. They exudes the quaint and edgy feel of the 70′s and curated to fit the cutting edge vibes of the store and the people who visit it. Collection will replace it self every quarter.
Nothing beats the handmade goodness of actual vintage pieces; the robust construction of the nose bridge, the solid feel of the temple arms… Here are some of the highlights you can look out for at blackmarket:
Christian Dior Monsieur – A signature piece that most vintage eyewear lovers should own.
Playboy – Nothing speaks swag like an original Playboy eyepiece and the one we selected for blackmarket is a mixture of disco punk meets neon acetate.
Carrera Aviators – Before wayfarers there were Carrera’s. The original Burt Reynold’s favorite and statement piece in cop show of the late 60′s and 70′s. These piece is in very mint original condition.
Last but not least, there’s an awesome DVF piece which is a rare item. It was actually a production piece that DVF had a part in designing before the current collection was churned out by licensing companies.
Buying a Vintage piece is like owning a piece of History.
Pretty powerful we say.
