Epik-Shop is the new kid on the online shopping block, but with a nice twist: The marketplace is set up to curate and support Southeast Asian designers, brands and boutiques, and to connect these merchants to Southeast Asian shoppers. In other words, it’s a Southeast Asian-wide shopper’s playground.
At the moment it’s slightly (okay, a lot) skewed towards Malaysian labels, such as Common Ground by Cassey Gan, Justin Chew Basic and Tsyahmi, but there’s also an excellent mix of Singaporean and Thai brands. Think A Pale Petal bags, swimwear by April Pool Day, and comfortable womenswear by Papers. Also: accessories, a kids section, beauty and home and lifestyle goods.
