Boutique lifestyle mall Cluny Court is celebrating the opening of eight brand new shops. There’s everything from clothes and accessories to beauty treatments, vegan products and a hair salon. If you’re looking for a great place to shop, read on!
A place to shop for fashion! Rye (#02-03)
Shopping doesn’t have to be done in a hurry! Founded in 2016, this homegrown womenswear label embodies a slow fashion design approach, creating timeless capsule collections for stylish modern women. Fans of minimalist fashion will be keen to check out the apparel range, from the oversized cotton shirts and pleated midi skirts to cocoon dresses and flared pants that show great attention to detail. The boutique itself embodies the same design qualities as its fashion collection; it’s a serene space with a clean colour palette and natural materials. You can wind down and enjoy the complete in-store experience, as an antidote to hectic city shopping.
New shop – Sweaty Betty (#02-13)
Sweat it out with Sweaty Betty, a global activewear and lifestyle brand for women. Since founder Tamara launched the brand in 1998, it has focused on both performance and style. You can shop leggings, sports bras, tops, coats and jackets here. And don’t miss the Power Leggings! These feature super stretchy fabric with flattering seams to sculpt the bum, so you look and feel good while working out! Sweaty Betty believes in pushing to do better, and its on-the-go community treats every day like it’s made for moving. What’s more, the clothes are crafted from responsibly sourced materials and recycled bottles. Ideal for both your body and the planet!
A place to shop for swimwear – Cia Maritima (#02-02/02a)
All about that beach life? The Singapore weather makes it tempting to have a seaside getaway every weekend. Cia Maritima is Brazil’s number one luxury beachwear brand since 1990. And for good reason! Its Lycra Xtra Life fabric, for example, can resist up to 10 times more chlorine than any other lycra. And the swimwear and gymwear fabrics are 100 percent house-made. Each piece is carefully constructed with luxurious materials in a family factory that’s been in the business for over 70 years. The gymwear also boasts compression features, so you get to feel the body-shaping in effect when you try the pieces on. It’s also the official swimwear for the Miss Singapore finals this year!
A place to shop vegan products – OASIS: Beauty Kitchen (#02-15)
Want to a place to shop vegan products in Singapore? OASIS has you covered. This vegan personal care brand was founded here, and focuses on being 100 percent natural and impact-driven for the environment. It’s a one-stop shop offering products that are freshly crafted by beauty chefs in the brand’s kitchen in Tiong Bahru, as well as showcasing other organic and low-waste personal care brands for bath, beauty and home. The store also functions as a refillery for everyone to buy just what they need. Think of it as a bakery-like experience in beauty shopping.
The Gallery Hair Studio (#02-16, #02-17, #02-18A and #02-21)
Looking for a hair salon at Cluny Court? The Gallery Hair Studio has a team of international hairstylists with both the technical skills and experience to transform your hair. Working with the motto of helping you become a new and better version of yourself, the team covers both aesthetic and haircare treatments. Get your hair coloured, styled, cut, highlighted or permed. Or, try out different variations of hair extensions from fusion and feather to tapein, among others. If you’re concerned about your hair health, feel free to combine your visit with a haircare treatment or therapy, so your hair stays radiant from the inside out!
A place to shop for shoes – Our Cove by Commune Wear (#02-20)
A cosy corner created with intention and love, the ambience of Our Cove reflects the same mentality as its classic and timeless shoes. The handcrafted artisan shoes for both women and men are made with buttery soft leather with memory foam soles, suitable for all-day wearing. The designs are as diverse as the shop’s clientele; vintage lovers can go for the classic Mary Janes, Mules and Loafers, while sandal fans can find their favourites in single weave, strappy, crossover and heeled varieties and more. This is also a place to shop for sliders with ultimate comfort and convenience, and interesting variations like asymmetrical, folded and scallop-edged styles.

Combining advanced technology and effective ingredients, the personalised programmes are resultsdriven to target your problem areas effectively. Need some recommendations?
