Cathay: Our latest shopping mall crush!

We need to confess… we have a slight crush on a mall! Yes an air-conditioned shopping mall, not so far from Orchard Road, Singapore.

The Cathay has been entertaining generations of Singaporeans for over 70 years. But not in the shopping kind of why. The Cathay is better known for its cinema than its shopping. Located at Handy Road, right at the foot of Mount Sophia, it is conveniently accessible from Dhoby Ghaut MRT.

Nowadays, The Cathay houses some of Singapore’s fastest rising-star local shops, local brands, and being just minutes from the iconic Orchard Road shopping strip, you have no excuse not to pop in and see what all our fuss is about.

Beluga.IMG_2267 A multi-label men’s boutique, which also carries its own brand. Ranging from Cote Et Ciel, Dr Denim, Gourmet Shoes, Nikolaj D’etoiles, Swear-London, Kill City, Sixpack France and Grandiosity. Specialising in masculine minimalist streetwear this is a great one-stop-shop to deck your man out head to toe.

Chota. A local apparel brand that specialises in designing menswear. Their individual collections have different highlights such as textures, collars and stitching for a unique style that is subtle yet stylish and smart.

Clique. An eclectic lifestyle store that epitomises the term ‘organised chaos’. Eclectic with just the right amount of clutter, this lifestyle store has accessories, quirky homewares, stationery, bags and other one of a kind finds.

Marcella. Building a shirt has never been simpler. With such a wide array of fabrics, linings, collars, cuffs and more, you can build a shirt for any occasion. Shirts are made to measure and designed by you, thus catering to your unique taste and preferences. All it takes is four quick steps…

VOL.TA marque. IMG_2292With a passion for creating better fitting menswear apparels in Asia, VOL.TA provides a broad variety of fashion forward apparels that become an entity of one’s daily lifestyle.

Fact is, the local shops of The Cathay are nailing menswear. However they are also hitting the mark in women’s fashion, gifts as well as home décor. While new shops are popping up on a weekly basis, The Cathay is one to watch (and visit) as it morphs into the perfectly shaped destination for shopping in Singapore.

Until next time, happy shopping wherever you may be!
