It's no secret: our sister publication in the Lion City, L'Officiel Singapore, loves throwing a good party, which is why they pulled out all the stops for their 11th-anniversary party on 12th March 2018 and we also flew in to celebrate.
Held at Level Up, the city's hottest new arcade bar, we time-travelled in style for a Back II The Future-themed birthday bash and here's what went down that night!
(Neon) Lights, Camera, Action!
It may be the new kid on the block, but Level Up sets the perfect scene for the throwback party last Monday. Thanks to Confetti Dreams, the bar was neon-lit all through the night. There was an array of stations to keep guests entertained at every turn: Vaniday offered ladies an express gel manicure makeover; Venuerific had a body-painting booth; bottlesXO's Spin The Wheel challenge kept party-goers playing for tipples and vouchers, and Swatch's Spring/Summer 2018 Vibe pop-up booth came complete with a pair of futuristic rangers who were selfie-ready for guests to take their winning shots.
Of course, our guests weren't about to get thirsty: besides the free flow of beverages at the bar, they were treated to a range of exquisite wines, spirits and beers from bottlesXO and refreshed with COCOLOCO's organic coconut water. There were also lots of glasses of champagne to go around at the Aditus booth.
The cherry on top was DJ Thomas's thumping remixes of '80s dancefloor hits, which kept the party going all night long.
Put On A Picture-Perfect Smile
You know what they say: pics or it didn't happen. That's why Instantly.sg's 180-degree Time Stop pop-up gave our party guests the chance to snap their arcade-ready ensembles from head to toe — and from more than one angle. It was the perfect backdrop for the VIPs to pose for #LOFFSG11 selfies and show off their looks from MSGM. Not all the pictures of the night were for the 'gram, however, guests were also caught in candid shots taken by Fujifilm's Instax cameras.
Let The Games Begin!
L'Officiel Singapore had a stellar line-up of retro arcade games to keep everyone's spirits high. Over at the Basketball Dunk Challenge, one lucky winner got to walk away with a fresh new pair of kicks from Onitsuka Tiger. The claw machine was a particular favourite, with guests queuing up to try their hand at winning mystery prizes.
Up from grabs were long wallets from Porter International, watches from Swatch's SS18 Vibe Collection, NARS hampers, clutch bags and footwear from Onitsuka Tiger, perfumes by Thomas Sabo, Fujifilm water bottles and a $500 medical and cosmetic voucher from Ensoul.
CEO of Heart Media, Olivier Burlot, L'Officiel Singapore's Managing Editor, Ian Lee, and the rest of the team took to the stage to toast the magazine's 11 years of cutting-edge fashion. They were later joined by us and L'Officiel Thailand to complete the L'Officiel family. A special anniversary cake by Oni Cupcakes was brought out to celebrate the moment, complete with sparklers.
To cap off the festivities, guests walked away with fab prizes from the lucky draw, which included watches from Swatch's SS18 Vibe Collection, NARS hampers, a full outfit from MSGM's p.m. capsule collection, Thomas Sabo perfumes, a clutch bag and footwear from Onitsuka Tiger, Porter International bags, a Fujifilm XP90 camera, Ensoul vouchers worth $2500 in total, a bottle of champagne from bottlesXO, and a pair of return economy class tickets to Paris via Thai Airways.
