SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY are more important than ever, which is why Capella Singapore has teamed up with Net-A-Porter for a special series of moments entitled “A considered life.” This innovative new series spotlights Net-A-Porter’s consciously crated beauty and fashion products. To bring this vision to life, creative technology studio The MeshMinds Foundation has stepped in to create a truly one-of-a-kind fusion of art and augmented reality. 

Now, The Meshminds Foundation is hosting “Please Insert Women,” a cutting-edge art exhibition at Capella Singapore that could not feel more of the moment. The exhibit is the culmination of a two-month-long incubation program that strives to empower women artists in Southeast Asia. Four brilliant local artists, Dawn Ang, Elen Winata, Tiffany Tan and Tan Zi Xi have produced nine original works of art, each inspired by Net-A-Porter’s sustainability mission. 

What is especially striking is that The Meshminds Foundation has used Augmented Reality (AR) technology to bring these works to life for guests at the Capella Singapore. It’s an incredible opportunity to engage with local art in a whole new way. Guests or visitors to the Capella Singapore can experience it for themselves now at Cassia Foyer.

This collaboration represents a committment on the part of both brands to building a more sustainable future in the fashion, beauty and hospitality industries. NET SUSTAIN is perfect for style mavens who believe in ethical fashion. It’s also a logical extension of Capella Singapore’s longstanding committment to being green. The hotel has already taken steps like eliminating single-use plastics at the property in order to be more environmentally responsible.

From September 1 through 30, guests who take part in a special staycation offer at Capella Singapore by booking directly will receive a specially curated NET SUSTAIN beauty kit by NET-A-PORTER.
