DESIGNER JEWELLERY, FASHION AND FLAGSHIP BOUTIQUES
When shopping is such an important part of our lifestyle, it’s good to know that there’s some new and exciting stores and boutiques opening up island wide all set to give us some new shopping experiences.
So, while Orchard Gateway is one of the latest malls to open their doors to Singapore’s shoppers, Marina Bay Sands (MBS) is brimming with luxury and the Orchard Belt is as vibrant as ever, we also step further a field to see what’s popping up in other areas of Singapore:-
Textured, functional and vibrant are the words that best describe Singaporean concept brand, Pleatation. The brand is the first entirely pleat-focused label in Singapore, housing a wide range of fashion, stationery, lifestyle and home and living products at its new open-concept store at Orchard Central. The head designer at Pleatation, Xiaojun, walks us through her boutique store that is designed to look like a home with a roof-like structure then room leading to room to feature each categories of her designs.
Pleatation is at 02-17 Orchard Central. Price ranges – apparels from $25 – $250, stationery from $10 – $60, Home & Living from $20 – $500, lifestyle from $20 – $120.
A new multi-brand designer jewellery boutique opens at Orchard Gateway. Owned by Ms Shareen Wong, a former radio presenter, she tells us that “Embrace Jewellery is set up to embrace the goodness of life and celebrate the beauty of jewelry. Each brand and piece is carefully curated to ensure that they are unique and stylish, yet highly-affordable to our discerning shoppers“. With designs from all over the world including Spanish designer, Daniel Vior, Canadian Leah Alexandra and collections of Chakra bracelets for those into yoga as well as handcrafted silver charm bracelets as spotted on wrists of celebrities like Beyonce, Embrace Jewellery is the place for your next must have statement piece of jewellery.

Opening late last year, Robinsons Orchard continue to bring us new and exclusive brands as well as speciality cosmetics to this $40 million flagship store at the heart of Orchard Road. 186,000 sq ft set over 6 floors, Robinsons Orchard is proving to be our place to go for that something different when all other department stores and malls seem to feature the same conventional labels.
