HAYDEN Fall 2018/19 Collection – FELINE, is inspired by a recent trip to Pulau Tekong.
Other than NS Men, you can also find the cute, endangered Leopard Cats On Pulau Tekong.
They might be of the same size as a domestic cat, but make no mistake — they are definitely not your average house cat…
They are incredibly WILD but are CUTE nonetheless.
The leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) is a critically endangered species — with less than 50 mature adults — in Singapore.
In fact, according to mammal expert Marcus Chua, there are only about 20 leopard cats on Singapore’s mainland.
The jungle cat used to be a common sight from 1800s to 1920s, but after massive deforestation and loss of habitat, they have been driven to the brink of extinction.
Ironically, Tekong, which is 32 times smaller than Singapore, has a larger population of these felines.
The reason for the critically endangered leopard cat’s larger population in Tekong is because they do not have to compete with civets (which exists only on the mainland) for prey including birds, insects and rats.
The inspiration of the Fall 18/19 – FELINE is simply draw from their beautiful coat of leopard print fur… Looking so regal and beautiful but with a hint of the wildness within you! Designed for the HAYDEN woman, who is always quick on her feet, resourceful, but with a languid, slightly aloof quality.
