We are, quite literally, in the business of shopping (lucky us!) However we know the whole SV community loves a good excuse to shop for something new and shiny, so what better reason than our HQ’s Little Red Dot turning the big 5-0! As the city becomes studded with more beautiful red décor every day, why not get in the patriotic spirit by flashing some red with these specially designed SG50 purchases around town (or abroad if you’re getting away). Call this the sartorial version of waving the red and white flag for your country.
For those of you who don’t inhabit our little island, these buys are so cute, you’ll want to celebrate with us from afar, and thanks to the power of online shopping, you can! Think of these as genuine investment pieces, only around for a limited period and sometimes in limited numbers, so feel free to indulge yourself in a little piece of history…
Uniqlo has gone totally local with a special curation of all their best sellers, which are suitable for our tropical climate. We love their tongue-in-cheek Singlish categories such as ‘Go paktor? Bo jio’ and ‘This weather cannot tahan’, with items chosen for their breathability and every occasion. They’re also offering 50% off the Night Safari to celebrate SG50. What are you waiting for? This online spot is a must-visit, for the local in-joke laughs alone!

CHARLES & KEITH
Forget flashing red soles this weekend, it’s all about what’s on your arm. One of favourite local go-to brands, Charles & Keith, never fails to create covetable shoes and bags that we want in our wardrobes. Their limited edition, online exclusive bag created especially in celebration of the nation’s Golden Jubilee comes in a stunning shade of red and in a versatile messenger style. It also comes with a removable strap so you can carry it as a clutch after night fall; this is a purchase we're excited to wear way after the celebrations are over!
