SUM OF THE PARTS Launches Collaboration with Asia Pacific Rayon

SOTP X APR, functional and feminine designs on classic silhouettes


Singapore, 22 October 2020 – We are so excited to share that Sum of the Parts (SOTP) and Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) are debuting their very first clothing capsule. This is the first collaboration with a Singapore based fashion brand.

The capsule, I Love Viscose, is the perfect combination of SOTP’s love for classic silhouettes with feminine details and APR’s 100% natural and biodegradable viscose as the ideal base fabric.

The capsule is inspired by SOTP Designer’s unique trade background as an occasion / evening wear designer, featuring ribbons, ruffles, knots that work double duty as they allow wearers to transform the look of several styles.

The mission at Sum of the Parts (SOTP) is to slow down fashion consciously by:

  • Creating pieces that are long lasting in style and quality
  • Using and continuously sourcing sustainable fabrics where possible
  • Producing in small quantities, enough to meet demand and avoiding potential dead stock


“Viscose begins with trees, they are grown responsibly in certified forest plantations primarily in Indonesia. At APR, we collaborate with brands like SOTP to help them source viscose from our supply chain for them to experience the fabric first hand and make beautiful clothes. Viscose is not synthetic. At APR, our viscose is 100% wood based, a natural and breathable fibre.” said Cherie, Vice President Communications & Sustainability, APR.
