Singapore’s powerhouse brands join forces once again: premier sneaker boutique Limited Edt. and acclaimed sneaker customiser Mark Ong, aka Mr Sabotage. They proudly present the highly anticipated follow up to their successful Urban Islander collection that was first launched in 2020.
The Urban Islander is defined as an inhabitant of the sunny island (where both collaborators originate from), who holds a deep interest in style, music, art and subcultures, an open mind to creativity, and who traverses the streets and paths less travelled.
The concept also epitomises the contrast between Singapore being a metropolitan urban city and, at the same time, the perfect tropical getaway. This is perfectly captured in the new collection fusing urban sophistication and tropical flair that transcends boundaries and elevates streetwear to new heights – by featuring a range of products that include a New Balance 580 sneaker, Helinox Chair One, OMBAK shirt and shorts, tote bag, hat and socks.
Urban Islander x New Balance 580 (SGD $229):
At the heart of the Urban Islander Collection lies the New Balance 580, a masterpiece that seamlessly blends a reserved colour palette with bold statements. The shoe features the signature pineapple print, vividly adorning the insole and lining, embodying the essence of the Urban Islander lifestyle. Crafted with meticulous detail, the material execution is a treasure trove of premium finishes, including Hairy Suede, Woven Fabric, and 3M Reflective materials. The New Balance 580 stands as the epitome of streetwear sophistication, encapsulating the identity of the Urban Islander.
Urban Islander x Helinox Chair One (SGD $249):
The Urban Islander x Helinox Chair 1 reimagines the classic Chair 1 with Urban Islanders’ signature “pineapple” aloha print. Constructed with DAC’s proprietary aluminium alloy and high-strength nylon, this limited-edition chair marries comfort and portability with a touch of tropical flair, making it a statement piece for outdoor enthusiasts and design aficionados alike.
Urban Islander x OMBAK (Shirt SGD $199, Shorts SGD $129):
In collaboration with Singapore-based fashion label, Ong Shunmugam’s diffusion menswear line, OMBAK, the Urban Islander Collection presents a shirt + shorts set adorned with the signature “pineapple” aloha print. Crafted from lightweight linen, this ensemble effortlessly combines style and comfort, reflecting the laid-back vibes of the Urban Islander.
Urban Islander Tote Bag (SGD $149):
Drawing inspiration from the textures of rattan picnic baskets and the ambiance of tiki bars at the beach, the Urban Islander Tote is the epitome of luxury beach chic. Crafted with Woven Raffia fibre and full-grain leather, this tote is a versatile accessory that seamlessly transitions from a day at the
beach to city streets, exuding elegance, and style.
Urban Islander New Era 5 Panel Camper (SGD $69):
A perfect foil for any sunny weather, the Urban Islander New Era 5 Panel Camper features a linen and mesh construction, that’s finished with an embroidered pineapple logo at the front and Urban Islander script at the back.
Urban Islander Sock (SGD $19):
The collection would not be complete without the Urban Islander Sock, a casual cream ribbed sock featuring the collection’s colourway – Cream, Sand, and Black. Embellished with an embroidered Urban Islander pineapple logo, this sock adds a touch of streetwear flair to any ensemble, ensuring comfort without compromising style.
