Fashion fanatics: we’re bringing you the exclusive scoop on what’s got us excited in the Expat Living fashion department this month. From the latest collection launches to online shopping deals, cute boutique openings and new brands to know, here’s all you need to know about shopping in Singapore.
Shop premium, sustainably produced and made-inEstonia lingerie, jewellery and silk kimonos at Nordic Design House. Our favourite pick is this pair of dreamy gold heart earrings ($216) from Tanel Veenre Jewellery’s Voodoo Paradise Collection!
We’re all about supporting home-grown fashion brands, so we were stoked to hear about Design Orchard! Located at the junction of Orchard and Cairnhill Roads, the new retail development at 250 Orchard Road showcases over 60 new, emerging and established local brands, including sustainable and ethical fashion label Matter Prints. designorchard.sg
Uniqlo’s newest collection is a mix of ultra-soft separates in 100 percent French linen, nautical sweaters, resort dresses and stylish pyjamas.
On top of our list is this flattering cotton-lawn dress, the perfect embodiment of Parisian chic. uniqlo.com
We’re lusting after this Alessia kaftan dress ($1,199) from MAH Collection, a resort range from Danish expat Ondina Montgomery.
Perfect for special occasions (cocktail party, anyone?), the interchangeable, two-way printed kaftan is made of 100 percent silk for an oh-so-luxurious feel. Let it drape loosely over your curves, or tie a ribbon around your waist and throw on the Hone cover-up ($429) for a boho-chic appeal. mahcollection.com
White Ginger may be known for easy-to-wear day dresses and breezy tops, but its new party-ready pieces have just won our hearts. One particular standout is the Ariana jumpsuit ($140), a glamorous black one-piece with cold-shoulder sleeves that’s great for nights out with the girls or after-work drinks. #03-04 Tanglin Mall, 163 Tanglin Road. 6235 0322 | white-ginger.com
Featuring a glistening aventurine gemstone set on a sterling silver branch and a gold-plated bird motif, this uber-cute ring ($79.90) is the perfect conversation starter.
Pair it with a quirky sundress, a little black dress, or even a classic white-tee-and-jeans combo! embracejewellery.com
A fresh addition to contemporary eyewear brand Super by Retro superfuture, these sunnies ($350) feature wide, oval Bordeaux lenses set in a sturdy ruthenium metal frame with Italian black acetate temples. retrosuperfuture.sg
Inspired by the eccentric 80s Memphis design aesthetic, Charles & Keith’s latest collection is absolutely drool worthy – especially if you’re into pastels. Our favourites? The quirky boat-top handle bag ($46.90) and buckle detail slip-on heels ($46.90) in a fun shade of green. charleskeith.com
