We’re Riding The Rainbow This Summer: A Round-Up Of The Latest Rainbow-Themed Collections

A rainbow never gets old no matter how many times we’ve seen it and even if we don’t find a pot of gold at the end of it. Maybe that’s why the colourful arch has taken centre stage in many recent beauty and fashion launches. From footwear and bags to makeup, here are the latest rainbow collections that you should keep an eye out for.

Melissa Unicorns and Rainbows Collection


We love our sneakers but we, Singaporeans, also love our slippers. No matter where you are in the country, there will always be someone wearing slippers, even if they’re not supposed to. That’s why Melissa’s latest rainbow collection is sure to win you over. Exchange your slippers for these Beach Slide sandals with a rainbow ripple effect across the band of the sliders. You’ll literally have a rainbow running across your feet!

Melissa Beach Slides 3DB in Rainbow (black) and Rainbow (white) 

Melissa’s Unicorns and Rainbows collection will be available in Melissa stores, from 11 May. 

Furla Metropolis Fantasia


We’re still reeling from the cuteness overload by Furla’s Hello Kitty collection but its Metropolis Fantasia bag is another winner that will steal the hearts of many. The luxurious bag is made from calfskin leather and finished with a special pearl effect that makes you feel like your flying in the clear blue Cerulean sky among the clouds. The rainbow gently hugs the gold hardware on the front of the bag, keeping the bag casual yet luxurious.

Off-White “RAINBOW” Collection


As if getting a flagship store right on Orchard Road isn’t good enough for Hypebeast Singaporeans, we even get a Singapore-exclusive collection. Launched 20 April, the “Rainbow” capsule includes shorts, shirts, a bag, cap and the iconic industrial belt, all in a pastel blue and pink gradient. It’s technically not a rainbow cause there are only two colours but if Virgil Abloh calls it a rainbow, it’s a rainbow.

Too Faced Life’s A Festival Collection


We’ve shared about the magic behind Too Faced’s Life’s A Festival collection and gave a full breakdown of the whole collection but we still can’t stop gushing over the colourful and glittery collection. Coachella just passed but Ultra Singapore is just around the corner so we can bust out our festival looks, too. As if a beautiful rainbow highlighter isn’t enough, you can also apply it with a rainbow brush. Yes, it’s a bit extra but we still love it.

Burberry Rainbow Collection

The rainbow has also become a symbol for LGBTQ+ rights, acting as the colours of the Pride flag. As his last collection, Christopher Bailey, former President of Burberry, chose to weave the rainbow into his collection to reflect the support he had received and as a sign of support for LGBTQ+ youth in the world. The rainbow makes its appearance in a variety of ways – a subtle addition to the classic check pattern or an all-over rainbow across the garment.


You can check out all the looks from the February 2018 collection here.

Whether you love colourful items or wear the rainbow to show support for the LGBTQ+ community, we cannot deny that the colourful arches have brought joy to people around the world (just maybe not as much as the guy from the double rainbow meme).
