5 cool places for your fashion fix

Shop | May 7th, 2015 |

Singapore is a super hot tropical country that is really limited by what we can wear. We can’t wear coats, scarves or beanies but yes, we Singaporeans still buy them. Quite simply, we love buying fashion items of all types, from the impractical to the utilitarian and of course, the stylish threads we all desire to have. And recently, the west has become just the place for all your fashion needs. Here’s why.

Fashion, from the streets
1. Fashion, from the streets

Located on the 2nd floor of JCube, J.Avenue is a retail zone that’s heavily influenced by Japanese and Korean elements. It’s got a host of social elements, such as 3D floor art and even a social wall that allow shoppers to take selfies and frame them on. It’s pretty much the perfect place for youth to get their shop on with a wide variety of affordable and trendy fashion on sale. And when we say variety, we mean it. With fashion shops more than Lady Gaga’s wardrobe changes – such as LaBelle’s collection of lingerie and bikinis, it’s fair to say you’ll be spending some time going through everything.

Address: J.Avenue at JCube, 2 Jurong East Central 1, Level 2, Singapore 609731

Some of the best fashion finds can come in the most unlikely of places. For example, in Everton Park, there’s The Redundant Shop, where you can find a wide range of accessories, bags and grooming products from independent brands and craftsmen. Their magazine catalog is one of the best as well and they even sell bicycles. With a very lovingly curated vibe to the shop, you should feel free to ask the staff about any products you see. You can get some free education this way!

Address: The Redundant Shop, Blk 5 Everton Park #01-22, Singapore 080005

Or take nana & bird, a fashion store for women with a quirky name located in nearby Tiong Bahru. The store’s unique moniker comes from the names of the owners themselves. Georgina naturally translates to Nana and Bird comes from co-owner Chiewling’s loud and chirpy nature. This old school hole-in-the-wall spot houses some of the more unique clothing you can find, including Singaporean labels and designers like Aijek and Cassey Gan, as well as other international labels such as Peggy Hartanto and Milk & Thistle.

Singapore’s into smart-everything – we ask our kids to study smart, we want to work smart, all while Singapore reinvents itself as a smart nation. So, why not shop smart too? Spend a day at Singapore’s largest outlet mall at IMM for your goods; procure some seriously sweet gear at unimaginably affordable prices. Be it luxury items such as agnés b or Coach, active wear such as Adidas, New Balance or Billabong, or stylish casual threads from Polo Ralph Lauren, there’s a deal out there for everyone.

Creative Grooming
5. Creative Grooming

Fashionistas need more than just sweet clothes to look as cool as they do. There’s a lot more to it. You have to get your hair done, your nail colours right and so much more. In order to do that, everyone’s now looking for items that can help get those beauty routines done faster and better. Tokyu Hands at Westgate is just the place for that, with its unique products from Japan. A nail clipper with a lens so you can get to those tiny spots with ease? They have just that, along with tons of other easy to use products like a small portable eyelash curler. Whether you’re sick of the conventional grooming and makeup products that are commonly found or just need a solution for a really specific problem, chances are the Japanese have it at Tokyu Hands.
