Travelling to the Far East: Singapore
Marina Bay Sands Hotel
An extremely metropolis hub, this city is saturated with beautifully designed hotels. The world famous Marina Bay Sands hotel is where we’ll be found daring ourselves to look over the edge of its 55-storey high infinity pool, while showing off our Eram Kaftan in Electric Blue Bandhani.
Galleries & Shopping
No matter how small, Singapore is gleaming with architectural brilliance and design marvels. We love the National Design Centre, a 120-year-old white art-deco gem, with a clutch of studios featuring exhibitions ranging from Japanese design to local art. Space Asia Hub features stunning original facades that were resurrected sensitively, juxtaposing with a modern glass structure. It houses Space, a high-end, contemporary furniture store with designs from Australia and Asia. Another must-visit is Orchards Road, a glistening gem that showcases some of Singapore’s most exciting fashion designers and artisans. Becoming a creative hub in the city, there are also workshops, designer Q&As and exhibitions, along with pop-up restaurants, food trucks and more.
We love Singapore’s vibrant street-food scene, which has been shaped over many years by local Malay, Indian and Chinese communities. Vendors supply their trade from noon till night, dedicated to the dishes they produce and the customers they serve. Here are some of our top picks.
1. Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶 Meat bone tea/ Pork Ribs soup) from Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh: 7 Keppel Road, #01-05/07, PSA Tanjong Pagar Complex, Singapore 089053.
2. Wanton Mee (云吞面 Wonton Noodles) from Fei Fei Wanton Mee: 62 Joo Chiat Place, Singapore 427785.

Singapore is truly a city that comes to life at night. Some of our favourite bars include Bluejaz cafe, Cable Car 1890s Saloon and Jekyll & Hyde, a manicure salon by day that turns into a cocktail bar at night. Our Malih Shirt Dress in Flame Silk is perfect for the hot, buzzing city evenings.
