The Female guide to the best shopping fun this month in Singapore.
Kate Spade opens at Marina Bay Sands: The pretty American lifestyle label opens its latest store at the luxury mall. We were there at the grand opening on Wednesday (pics are above!) and loved the metallic gold and pink feature wall scrawled with the word “Happy”. For this Instagram-worthy backdrop alone, do visit. #B2-17 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
Robinsons X Playhound pop-up: The local department store teams up with the streetwear-influenced diffusion line of Thai label Greyhound on a special concept space. What to expect in it: A specially created capsule collection of tees, sweatshirts, tote and caps ($89-$149, below) with a cool monochrome brush print. From today, Robinsons The Heeren Level 3
FJ Benjamin Luxury Sale For Friends & Family: Details are supposed to be kept hush hush, but let’s just say the last time we went to one of these, we saw women fighting for designer bags and shoes, and queued half an hour to pay – with prices up to 80 per cent off, it was worth it. April 11, 10am-8pm, Hilton Hotel (24th floor), Panorama Rooms 1, 2 & 3
Launch of Adidas’ Roland Garros Collection by Y-3: Yohji Yamamoto’s line for Adidas has always been great for its athletic-meets-intellectual cool designs, but they’re more sports-inspired, than actually made for working out. This latest line however can be worn to spin class/yoga/a spot of tennis. Designed for Roland Garros (that’s the French Open to non-Tennis geeks), it boasts tops, dresses, sweats, shoes and hats in cool all-black and an upbeat Hawaiian floral print. Y-3, #01-05 Mandarin Gallery
American Vintage arrives in SG: The 10-year-old French casual wear label by Mickael Azoulay opens its first standalone boutique here this week: A 1,000sq ft space carrying its signature high-quality cotton tees and effortless separates great for mixing and matching (this season’s collection is inspired by the ’90s with candy colours and stripes on silk shirts, pullovers, straight and tapered pants and skater skirts). #03-13B Ngee Ann City
Converse’s Made By You pop-up: If you dig the brand’s iconic sneakers, taking #OOTDs and a chance to win an exclusive pair of Chuck Taylor All Star Monoweaves, don’t miss this. As part of its “Made By You” campaign, the brand will be holding an Instagram competition on site its exhibition at Bugis Junction tomorrow. What you need to do: Head down in your own Converse; have your portrait taken (it’ll then be emailed to you); upload and tell the s tory of your shoes, or personal style in six words; and hashtag #conversesg, #conversesingapore and #madebyyou.
