THE SCOOP: Orchard Road is about to get a lot cooler in terms of unique buys, as Design Orchard opens amidst their luxury counterparts. Opening their doors this weekend, expect to find homegrown brands in fashion, beauty, accessories and more – to give you some real inspiration (and not to mention, retail therapy). Stop by tomorrow (Saturday 26 Januray) morning 9am – 12pm for a proper Singaporean breakfast on the house while you peruse their new space.
You may remember Keepers: Singapore Design Collective that was on this corner for a good run before Singapore Tourism Bureau and JTC broke ground to build this permanent space dedicated to showcasing and supporting local talent. The original Keepers space was our go-to spot to hit-up for unique gifts, and a quick browse beyond your typical mall. Needless to say, we are pretty amped that there’s a new incarnation of a local design-focused shopping destination to take it’s place.
Beyond their super modern facade, structure and green space, you’ll find carefully curated collections, cozy beanbags for that mid-shopping fatigue, Asian-inspired wall murals, and an outdoor space that truely sets a new vibe to that entire intersection of Orchard Road. We can’t wait to go scout out some new finds amidst the over 60 brands they stock – including The Paper Bunny, ANIA Skincare and The Mindful Company, to name a few.
