More than just gifts of nature, RISIS’ Orchids signify style and character of the contemporary woman. Initiating their new direction, RISIS introduces a capsule collection that breathes new life into the Iconic Orchids Collections created in partnership with 4 local fashion designers.
Each RISIS Natural Orchid Jewellery is re-imagined to symbolise the faceted personality and style profiles of women in Singapore and around the world. The Phalaenopsis Cornu Cervi Orchid embodies the spirit of creativity and adventure, the Vanda Limbata Orchid radiates sophistication, the Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid exalts femininity, while the Ascocenda Sagarik Orchid exudes glamour.
Inspired by the four RISIS Orchid personalities, the RISIS’ Iconic Orchids capsule collection is refashioned into stylish embellishments of nature and culture by Sylvia Lim, founder-designer of Triologie, Goh Ling Ling, founder-designer of her eponymous label Lingwu, Elyn Wong, founder-designer of Stolen and famed local designer, Lai Chan.

RISIS X LINGWU: Iconic Vanda Limbata Orchid Collection
The Sophistication of New Meaning, New Perspectives and New Aesthetics
Lingwu’s minimal and modern creations, conceived with thoughtful construction, expert details, and quality materials are synonymous with a timeless sophistication that is rich with meanings. Founder-designer Ling’s creations reflect her connectedness to the world, supporting and expressing its history, diversity and future. She brings her effortless refinement of contemporary aesthetics, functional designs and intellectual narratives to the revitalisation of RISIS Iconic Vanda Limbata Orchid.
Lingwu applies its purposeful and conceptual design capabilities and innovation spirit to re-interpret RISIS Iconic Vanda Limbata Orchid into the new Compass of Life medallion.
Ling draws inspiration from the compass, a device for divination and directional guide; and the Victorian pocket watch, men’s precious jewellery for timekeeping to reinvent the RISIS Iconic Orchid into a purposeful jewellery that symbolises the efficient navigation of life.
RISIS Iconic Vanda Limbata Orchid is revitalised with purpose in Lingwu’s creation of the Compass of Life medallion. The Natural Orchid steeped in 24K gold-plating serves as the “guiding needle” on the medallion to inspire and motivate. It is this alchemy of insightful creativity and modern aesthetics that defines a New Sophistication for women today.
RISIS X TRIOLOGIE: Iconic Phalaenopsis Orchid Collection
Adventure with A Tale of Singapore Culture Expressed Through Prints
Inspired by the joys of wanderlust, Triologie is for the modern woman who is adventurous and seeks to enrich her life with fresh experiences. The brand is renowned for its fabric prints which infuses the founder-designer Sylvia Lim’s signature paintings that are inspired by pieces of Singapore’s history and culture, interpreted in a personable and tongue-in-cheek way. It is this spirit for New Adventures that Triologie brings to revitalise RISIS Iconic Phalaenopsis Cornu Cervi Orchid.
Reminiscent of the Singapore flag, the Phalaenopsis Cornu Cervi Orchid’s five dark red petals and white lip stirred Sylvia to narrate a New Adventure of Singapore through the lens of Peranakan culture by borrowing its bold and vibrant colours, intricate motifs and rich tradition of style.
The designer also created a unique handcrafted five-petal Orchid chain that relates Singapore’s five core values to augment this new collection.
Triologie, known for translating elements of Peranakan culture into Iconic motif on fabric, now proffered this artistry in 3-dimensional metal artwork to make this RISIS Iconic Orchid collection a meaningful work of fashion art. Peranakan style tradition is artfully remodelled in the signature Kerongsang-inspired brooch, long necklace with Aceh belt influence and audacious statement ring.
RISIS X LAICHAN: Iconic Ascocenda Sagarik Orchid Collection
The Glamour of Intricacies and Detail
The signature beauty of the Ascocenda Sagarik orchid comes from its luxurious clusters of vibrant blooms. This has inspired Lai Chan to design a jewellery collection that expresses the flowers’ collective charm.
Powered by his whimsical imagination and keen eye for detail, Lai Chan re-imagines the RISIS Iconic Ascocenda Sagarik Orchid into splendorous tapestries of alluring flora – a NEW GLAMOUR of dramatic elegance that arises from the artful amalgamation of the intricacies in Nature.
Resilient in its intricacy, the beauty of the Ascocenda Sagarik Orchids unfolds in luxurious clusters of vibrant gold. Inspired by the quiet strength that arises from the union of the delicate blooms, Lai Chan brings his eye for the meticulous and flair for glamour to expressing the RISIS Iconic Ascocenda Sagarik 24K gold-plated Natural Orchid into an intricate latticework embellished with the elegance of pearls.
