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.
Singapore-based label Binary Style has a brand new ready-to-wear range consisting of lightweight, 100 percent cotton dresses and wrap skirts. Founded by twin sisters in 2015, the boutique brand is popular for its silk and cotton scarves that are inspired by local history, culture and nature. Priced from $98.
Embrace Jewellery has collaborated with local painter Cherie Altea (@ thejarofsalt) to launch an exclusive Peranakan-inspired jewellery collection! The range is priced from $89.90, with 10 percent of the proceeds going towards supporting breast cancer research.
La Filippine bags worth $450 We’ve teamed up with socially conscious accessory brand La Filippine to give away three bags to three lucky readers!
