"Faire Collective is the first of its kind – an experiential event that will display the key elements of an urban gentleman’s attire and lifestyle. With this carefully curated selection, Faire Collective will showcase two concepts: Retail and Bespoke."
- Ryan Choy, Chief Brand Officer
ABOUT THE EVENT
Faire Leather Co. believes that retail extends beyond the product - we have teamed up with some of your favourite local brands to offer a seamless shopping experience with the aim of sharing more about the quality and value of niche products. The retail concept will allow guests to understand what they’re buying and how each brands’ products go with one another by triggering their sense of sight, touch and sound. It will enable them to sample the essentials that make today’s Gentleman.
Centred around Bespoke services across apparel, shoes and leather goods the event will see guests experiencing the world's first artificial intelligence mobile tailor with A Gentleman’s Tale – step into a Mercedes Sprinter as a mounted 3d scanner takes your measurements.
Faire Collective will see the official launch of Bespoke leather brand, sondermade by Tocco Toscano. They will be conducting leather crafting workshops and consultations for interested parties who wish to know more.
RETAIL BRANDS INVOLVED
Faire Leather Co.
“Functional Luxury at a Fair Price”
Faire Leather Co. is a leather goods label that redefines true value as Functional Luxury at a Fair Price. Founded in Singapore by Joseph Lor and Ryan Choy, Faire Leather Co. taps traditional know-how from decades of heritage and experience with real-time feedback and data to create stylish products designed for maximum function. The local brand is the second most funded local Kickstarter project in Singapore and hit $1,000,000 in sales in under 10 months.
The event, organised by Faire, will also feature the prototype of Faire’s next product - a backpack.
A Gentleman’s Tale
“Look Good. Feel Good. Do Good.”
The Concept of A Gentleman’s Tale is to accompany men through milestones in their lives, and that every outfit tells the story of their lives at different stages and occasions. They wanted to be able to provide tailoring services at an affordable price and making tailor services accessible. This was how the idea of converting a van into a mini showroom came about, which led them to be Singapore’s First Mobile Showroom Tailor, bringing tailoring to the clients’ doorstep. The main highlight of their presence at Faire Collective would be their official launch of the World’s First AI Mobile Tailoring Showroom housed in a Mercedes sprinter, complete with a mounted 3D Scanner.

“Quality mechanical timepieces with avant-garde designs and personalisation options”
Crafted to embody the attributes of a Wulf: precision, intelligence, toughness, and most importantly, inimitable style – Wulf watches are the contemporary take on Swiss watchmaking. Hailing from Zurich, the Wulfpack - the brand’s specialised team of watch designers and industrial engineers, is driven by their collective goal of redefining the art of watchmaking. A process they call Wulfcraft.
With the mantra “Change, or be forgotten” at the core of their design philosophy, Wulf watches sport customised movements housed within a unique aesthetic framework.
“Classic, handcrafted and super comfortable- plus they’re polarised!”
This true blue Singaporean eyewear brand is a creative homage by a brother-sister duo to their mother. Her love for travel and her habit of losing her sunglasses on those travels inspired the founders Ming and Shing to create their own line of classic, handcrafted and polarised sunglasses - Harpers Bazaar touts them as the “Sunglasses Brand That Fashion Insiders Love” and to date, Rocket’s stylish frames have travelled to over 35 countries across the globe.
Check out their latest sunglasses at Faire Collective to amp up your day looks. From a minimalistic pair for work to a laidback pair for your next vacation, Rocket Eyewear’s got you covered.

sondermade by Tocco Toscano
“One of a kind.”
sondermade is a bespoke leather goods business by Tocco Toscano. At sondermade, we respect how unique each individual is and that the lives that we lead are all different. This means every leather piece we make isn’t just handmade, it’s sondermade. We go the extra mile to ensure that the end product is a reflection of who you are - one of a kind.
Having started his craft learning to bind leather books following several run-ins with the law, James Lor, founder of Tocco Toscano, fell in love with the process of making handmade leather goods - he went to Florence to undertake an apprenticeship at Tocco Toscano before taking over the brand to further establish its presence.
Following his success with Faire Leather Co. in 2017 and inspired by his father's start in the business, Joseph now aims to preserve the tradition of leather crafting with the finest precision, and fuse that with the ideas of today contributed by a young and experienced team.

GO TO WEBSITE
Alcohol Sponsor: Highland Park
Established in 1798, Highland Park is one of the oldest Scotch whisky distilleries. More important than age though, is the combination of traditional whisky-making techniques with obsessive attention to detail that have made Highland Park arguably the most respected single malt in the world. The abiding care and attention, the hallmark of Highland Park production, manifests itself in the distinctive aromatic, full-bodied floral sweetness of the whisky. Highland Park’s incomparable balance comes from a tension between the aromatic Orkney peat and the sweetness of oak casks seasoned with Oloroso sherry.
The accolade of Best Spirit in the World wasn’t a one-off. Highland Park has been picking up medals and awards for over a decade.
