Classic Black

The most popular shade when it comes to blazers, a classic black is a wardrobe must-have – it’s so versatile that it can be worn during any occasion. Whether you like the sleeves to be ¾ in length or longer, just never forget to always have it tailored to your size for that perfect fit.

Sleek And Collarless

A more relaxed type of blazer that is just as versatile as a classic black one. Get this in a lighter colour, and pair it with funner colours such as bright pastels for a fun and youthful OOTD!


The 'Boyfriend' Style

This oversized blazer should end just right under your butt and its sleeves should be loose enough that you can fold it or scrunch it up your arms! Wear it with more casual office looks for an outfit that looks effortlessly chic!

Ask any Singaporean about Suntec City and they’ll most likely be able to tell you where the mall is located in a heartbeat. Home to the iconic Fountain of Wealth and over 380 retail stores – from fashion and beauty, to F&B and lifestyle – Suntec City is one of the biggest shopping landmarks situated in the Marina Bay district, the very heart of the Lion City.

After embarking on a two-and-a-half year facelift, the first major revamp since its opening in 1995, Suntec City today is an oldie but a goodie – a classic yet stylish gem waiting to be uncovered. Call it job perks, but a shopping adventure by Team Clozette had to be in order. 

Read on as we suss out 10 of our favourite stores at Suntec City, to help you get your retail therapy on for your next shopping trip!

--------------------------


Aesop



Where: West Wing, #01-335

Dedicated to using plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients that are high in quality and efficacy for skin, body and hair, Melbourne beauty brand Aesop is design-focused in both their products and boutiques. Their third Singapore outlet, designed by Melbourne’s Kerstin Thompson Architects, illustrates minimalistic, wintry charm made up of muted greys, felt and blackened steel materials. Enjoy the calming interior sight, and don’t leave before you nab the brand’s highly raved Aromatique Hand Balm!

W.E. + Révolte



Where: North Wing, #02-438

Founded by Singaporean fashion stylist Angela Lim, Révolte is a shopping haven for those who have a knack for clean cuts and monochromatic tones. If you like twinning up with your little sister or daughter, check out the Révolte kids collection at the local label’s flagship store.


W Optics



Where: West Wing, #01-400

Take note: W Optics is not like your typical optical store. Spanning over 10,000 square feet, this optical concept store offers an extensive eyewear range, and a unique “shop-in-shop” experience with VIP areas for selected luxury brands that carry collections exclusive to W Optics. Not just that – there is also a spacious sitting area for regular optical seminars, a dedicated children’s corner for specialised kids glasses, plus a specialised eye clinic!


The Bespoke Club



Where: North Wing, #01-484

Why settle for an ill-cut suit when you can get yours tailor-made at The Bespoke Club? The first flagship boutique in Singapore houses master tailors and style consultants equipped with over 5,000 fabrics from notable European mills to cater to your suiting needs. The prices are reasonable too, so you don’t have to break the bank to own a piece of bespoke tailoring.


LANEIGE



Where: West Wing, #01-312

Korea’s leading Young Premium Total Beauty Brand LANEIGE may be available almost anywhere in Singapore with their strong retail presence. But since you’re in the area… might as well stock up on your beauty essentials, right? Our absolute must-have: the LANEIGE BB Cushion.


W.E. + BSYM



Where: North Wing, #02-434/436

Singaporean label BSYM (previously known as MU) is known for their East-meets-West aesthetics helmed by veteran designer Alfie Leong. Steering away from the latest trends and conventions, each design strikes a balance between form and function – ideal for the modern everyday women seeking a piece of individuality.


Reebonz (Pop Up)



Where: North Wing, #01-496 to 499

We’re not sure how long digital luxury shopping boutique Reebonz’s pop-up store will keep their physical presence. We suggest that you head down to have a look and feel of their lavish array of luxury bags and leather goods before it’s gone.


MPORIUM



Where: North Wing, #01-477

We love that multi-label lifestyle and fashion concept store MPORIUM is devoted to showcasing Asian-only labels and designers over its 5,000 square feet space. Expect to see Asian womenswear and menswear fashion labels from Singapore (Aijek, Mae Pang, Coupe Cousu) to Thailand (Yod Yoko, ASAVA) and beyond.


Straits Establishment



Where: North Wing #01-467

Another multi-label concept store at Suntec City? We’re not complaining. This time for the boys only, Straits Establishment focuses “on sartorial and heritage inspired menswear and accessories”. We say, gather your other halves and hit the store now!


StarThreeSixty



Where: North Wing, #01-458/462

StarThreeSixty celebrates streetwear fashion from all around. From Japanese leather sneaker brand Springle Move to French sports brand Patrick, StarThreeSixty is where the people who are in-the-know at.
