Home to impressive shopping malls, a myriad of local and international brands and both luxury boutiques and discount outlets, there's a lot for you to celebrate about our retail scene.

Kiehl’s 170th Anniversary

Celebrate Kiehl’s 170th Anniversary with its range of commemorative products. Pay homage to a rich history of iconic products that include the Creamy Eye Treatment with avocado, Ultra Facial Cream, Calendula Herbal Extract Toner and Midnight Recovery Concentrate. On top of that, Kiehl's will also be digging deep into its archives to bring back some historical products. From the 1920s, have fun experimenting with the Essence Oils labelled Love Luring, Fortune Seeking and Jinx Removing – each has its own unique scent. From the 1960s vault, bring home the Heritage French Rosewater Toner which uses sustainably sourced Turkish rose petals


The collection is available online from May 1 and at all Kiehl's stores.

Golden State Warriors fans, listen up – the Stephen Curry's iconic Curry One 'Dub Nation' is dropping in Asia for the first time.

These basketball shoes come in the signature blue and yellow colourway and minute details as a wink and nudge to true fans – the 'MMTB' acronym adorns the aglets, "4:13" is embroidered on the top of the shoe tongue, and "I can do all things" on the underside. If you know, you know.

Converse Flagship Store

Shopping Shoes Changi 

Converse fans and the young at heart will love the new Converse flagship store at Jewel Changi Airport. This is where you can pick up the latest and most exlusive collections from the iconic shoe brand. That includes the likes of the retro-inspired Kim Jones collection, as well as the upcoming SHAPES collection in July 2021 – a line of genderless made from recycled and organic apparel. Converse is leaning hard into sustainability, and that's apparent in this store too. Check out the three murals, two in-store and one a short walk away beside unit #02-224/225. Painted from Graphenstone paint, a special substance that purifies the air much like trees do, the murals centre on – and hope to spark conversations about – climate change, gender equality and community. And psst, the Converse x Pop Trading Company x Miffy Jack Purcell Pro collection has launched at Converse's Ngee Ann City boutique!
