Icon, a limited collection.
Carrie K. celebrates Singapore’s bicentennial anniversary with its limited-edition collection, Icon. The diamond motif of the Icon collection is the distillation of the National Theatre’s architectural elements and Singapore’s spirit of inclusivity and collaboration on which it was built. In recognition of this national monument and its significance in Singapore’s history, Carrie K. pays homage to her Singaporean roots by incorporating the visual inspiration of the National Theatre’s diamond shape as part of the Icon collection.
Through combined efforts, the National Theatre was built using funds raised by the government and public through the “a-dollar-a brick” campaign, commemorating Singapore’s self-governance. The National Theatre’s five-point façade, resembling a diamond, embodied Singapore’s founding principles of harmony and progress, demonstrating how the reward of success can be brought about through co-operation and commitment from Singaporeans coming from all walks of life.
