Pretty Little Liars is getting a reboot from Riverdale creators
It's only been three years since the last episode of mystery teen thriller Pretty Little Liars aired and a reboot is already in the works. Who knew we'll be nostalgic for the '10s so early? The planned reboot will be headed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, whose name you may have already encountered in Riverdale's credits, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This new take will have a whole new storyline and different characters so the original's plot will not be simply retold. Promising or not?
Batman production delayed as Robert Pattinson tests COVID-19 positive
Robert Pattinson, the star of the upcoming Batman movie has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and as a result, production has been delayed according to the "well-placed" sources of Deadline and Vanity Fair. Along with other film and television productions, Batman was also shut off when the novel coronavirus started to spread. We're wishing Robert Pattinson to get well soon!
Love, Bonito opens new store at VivoCity
Homegrown Singaporean brand Love, Bonito officially opens its fourth outlet at VivoCity today. This new store has a unique concept with its indoor-meets-outdoor design concept to evoke a sanctuary-like feeling. The interiors are also designed in consideration of mamas: all of the fitting rooms are built with lower, child-friendly clothing hooks so that mamas can try-on clothes with their little ones. Sitting stools are also aplenty in this new Love, Bonito store so shoppers can try out the brand's first-ever footwear line with ease. See you there.
Clarins Singapore opens boutique at NEX
In a bid towards "accessibility and approachability" to its customers, Clarins opens a boutique at Singapore's heartlands in NEX which is the biggest shopping mall in the northeast region of the country. Although the kiosk-boutique's space is considered compact, this new outlet has full product offerings including the Clarins Double Serum, V Shaping Facial Lift Line, and Total Eye Lift. It's perfect for a quick, efficient shopping experience.

Farfetch launches virtual try-on feature for sneakers
Thanks to technological advances, we can now do a virtual try-on while shopping on Farfetch. This exciting new feature is available on the online retailer's iOS app. Now, you'll be able to see how the shoes will look like on your feet or how it will look in a particular outfit. As of now, you can try it on a few pairs such as these. But by the end of the year, Farfetch targets to make more than 100 styles available for this feature. Awesome, right?
Skechers x Jeremyville collection now available
Skechers and New York-based artist Jeremyville's collaboration is now up for grabs on Lazada and Shopee and in Singapore at Junction 8, Takashimaya, Bugis Junction, NEX and Jewel Changi Airport. This whimsical collection is inspired by nature especially marine life. This range features women's footwear including high-tops, classic canvas sneakers and slip-on shoes.
