Everyone knows Raffles City. Sitting next to the iconic Raffles Hotel, it’s a popular shopping destination. The mall is going through a facelift, adding new fashion, culinary and wellness outlets, with more to come in the months ahead. In the meantime, here are four fresh brands you should check out on your next visit.
Build a trendsetting wardrobe for your everyday needs at Calvin Klein’s brand-new Singapore flagship store at Raffles City, which houses Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Performance and Calvin Klein Underwear.
It’s a unique one-stop retail experience, with a minimalist aesthetic and stunning visual features. In line with Calvin Klein’s strong desire to incorporate sustainability, the store uses energy-saving LED lighting.
The brand’s latest Spring 2022 collection focuses on ideas of community and togetherness, with people forming connections through the hashtag #mycalvins. By reinventing iconic pieces, the bold and progressive collection celebrates and inspires individuality.
Founded in 2016 by Mindy Aletheia Chow, SOAMI is a Singapore-born jewellery brand that puts people at the heart of their creations. It crafts its pieces from high-quality materials such as stainless steel, Gold Vermeil and solid gold.
Alongside their collection of signature cuffs and bangles, the store offers a range of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. The store offers engraving services and packs each purchase in special SOAMI gift boxes complete with ribbons, making them perfect as thoughtful gifts and personalised keepsakes.
SOAMI (pronounced sow-me) is formed from the words ‘so am I’, a phrase reminiscent of the brand’s desire to bring grace and reflection into the lives of those who wear their jewellery to encourage them to live intentionally.
Previously only available online, this is SOAMI’s first flagship store, commemorating a significant step in the local brand’s journey.
Transform your skin at RATIONALE’s new store in Raffles City. It’s the first overseas store from the Melbourne-based cult skincare brand.
There are four luxurious treatment rooms to indulge yourself in a selection of facial treatments crafted from the brand’s world-leading research and Skin Identical technology. The brand’s ethos is simple: restore and enhance the skin’s natural beauty and radiance.
Clients will go through an in-depth skin consultation and receive expert guidance in developing personalised home routines using the brand’s products, which were previously only available through dermatologists, plastic surgeons and cosmetic physicians.
House of Wei
Embark on a gastronomic adventure across cultures and flavours at House of Wei in Fairmont Singapore. The diverse menu takes inspiration from Master Chef Mok Wan Lok’s 42-year culinary journey through Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Shanghai and Singapore.
The dining area is sleek and bright, with art pieces and red glass panels adding elegance and colour to the contemporary décor.
House of Wei’s signature dishes include the Crispy Pork Rib Espresso Kahlua, the “Qi Lin” Style Red Grouper Fillet and the Roasted Black Cod.
The restaurant uses the best seasonal and locally sourced produce. Some dishes also feature vegetables and fish cultivated at the hotel’s aquaponics farm. A true farm-to-table dining experience.
