Ever since our Sassy sisters from Hong Kong kept gushing to us about Pretty Ballerinas opening their first store in Hong Kong, we’ve been crossing our fingers (and toes!) for the day when it hits Singers! Now we can finally rest easy on our pretty little laurels after its opening at Paragon. As the expert in ballet flats, this humble brand with roots from a village on the Mediterranean island of Menorca have been making the shoes since 1918. Much thought has been put into every silhouette and each shoe shape is named after a female screen actress or music icon; known to be the favourites of stars like Kate Moss, Angelina Jolie and even the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Choose from a plethora of styles and colours and enjoy the charming ambience and decor of the store that’s designed like tiny chocolate boxes with signature details of French antique gilt mirrors and chandeliers and pink shelvings.

Nestled in the latest luxury shopping mall in town, Capitol Piazza Mall, Napapijri opens its first flagship store in Singapore. The unique name is related to the northernmost tip of Europe and means arctic polar circle in the Finnish language. The swanky capacious store has a sleek modern interior and stocks the latest Spring/Summer 2015 selection of mens and womenswear. The colours, patterns and textures from the collection exudes a fresh and vibrant feel – strongly influenced by the brand’s spirit of travel and adventure. Plus when you’re picking out that utilitarian jacket and khaki shorts for yourself, you can definitely find something for your man here too!
