There is no doubt that people are hungry for contemporary fashion and the demand for streetwear brands is on the rise in Singapore. Overrated and hardly original, still, we all want to look like a ‘hypebeast’: someone who rocks streetwear with often obscenely priced trainers. Besides the king of streetwear Supreme, brands like Stüssy, Obey, Off-White and Comme des Garçons are widely popular but these days streetwear encompasses more than just the usual suspects. Hit up these shops to nail the streetwear aesthetic to a tee.

Shopping Fashion Rochor

Though an unlikely location, the multi-label store is located in Golden Landmark and stocks plenty of cult brands like Label Dunno, Brotherhood, Aries Arise, Good Morning Tapes, Arte Antwerp and more. The store focuses more on obscure brands that are in between streetwear and high fashion and champions a non-conformist and alternative attitude to fashion.  

Loop Garms

Shopping Vintage shops Rochor

It all started as a hobby of collecting vintage memorabilia when a trip to Japan inspired two youths, FJ Sai and Isaac Ang to open a physical store in Singapore. Experience a blast from the past as you peruse its curated collection of ’80s and ’90s apparel like plaid shirts (and pants), graphic tees and sports jackets from your favourite sports brands like Nike, Adidas, Fila and more. Prices start from $15 for caps and t-shirts – also look out for special edition threads available in-store.

EXIT

Shopping Vintage shops Orchard

Orchard Plaza might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of cool stores but give it chance, especially when you have a place like Exit, which stocks a fusion of vintage and trendy streetwear from popular labels like Supreme and Champion. Exit was born out of the lack of vintage clothing stores in Singapore by three friends, Aloyston Eng, Darren Yang and Charmaine Lim who have been retro fashion enthusiasts since they were 17. With the opening of several vintage stores in Singapore, they hope to create a community for like-minded people to get together.

Retro Gate

Shopping Vintage shops Kallang

Where else but Golden Mile Complex would be home to Singapore’s first Japanese-American inspired vintage and streetwear thrift store. What started as a passion project between Ryo Yamamoto and Paul Low, is now a physical store offering the dopest vintage streetwear like classic polo tees, colourful sports windbreakers and Hawaiian shirts.

Foot Locker

Shopping Shoes Changi 

Going to a shoe store doesn't always have to be about shopping for your next pair of sneaks. At Foot Locker in Jewel Changi Airport, you can shop in the largest outlet in Singapore and also enjoy a few extra perks in the store. Ladies can take a breather from retail therapy and get a manicure in-store before snapping a couple of selfies at the selfie mirror. On the first floor you can squeeze in a gaming sesh at the Xbox arena. When it comes to celebrating sneaker culture, no one does it better than Foot Locker – it's not just about the shoes, it's a lifestyle. 

Actually

Shopping Bags and luggage Orchard

If your hypebeast aesthetics include loud colors, gaudy fonts and stamps of labels from head to toe, then you're at the right store. This multi-label store is a chock-full of quirky, eclectic items from upscale and contemporary brands like Freitag, Fjallraven, Boy London, Dr. Denim, Lazy Oaf and Spitfire. Cop everything from apparel and trainers to bumbags and bucket hats.

Dover Street Market Singapore

Shopping Tanglin

All the cool kids frequent this massive multi-label retail space and concept store in Dempsey. The brainchild of Rei Kawakubo, well-known style icon and founder of Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons (CDG), Dover Street Market Singapore stocks cult brands such as Anti Social Social Club, Alyx and Vetements. Housed in a converted army barracks with black cage-like grills as racks and a colourful ‘cashier’ hut – you’d be forgiven if you mistake it for an art gallery.

Pedder on Scotts

Shopping Shoes Orchard

Two words: posh trainers. For exclusive collaborations and high-end footwear from designer brands like Balenciaga and Stella McCartney, as well as Fenty x Puma, you can expect it all to be stocked here. The store is also laid out in a way where you're made to explore the different zones and take in everything. Talk about experiential shopping in its purest form!

Y-3

Shopping Orchard

If you're wondering what Y-3 stands for, we've got the answer: it's the clever combination of Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto and the three stripes of Adidas. The collaboration between the two has evolutionised the world of streetwear where fashion meets sports. Its collection of head-turning garms features Yohji Yamamoto's signature utilitarian aesthetic with traditional Japanese tailoring. Boasting a technical feel on various silhouettes, it paves way for the modern sportswear with a futuristic look.

Surrender

Shopping Designer Orchard

Locally owned Surrender is the top choice among tastemakers here. This hipper-than-thou store stocks a slew of obscure brands including Denim by Vanquish and Fragment, Mindseeker, Readymade and A-Cold-Wall among others, making this quiet boutique a heavy-hitter in the youth culture scene. The store gives off the air of ‘look-but-don’t-touch’ – but spend enough time browsing its racks and you’ll discover gems.
