What’s All The Hype About? The Basement at Wheelock Place

Living in Singapore you would have recently seen and heard a number of advertisements for the basement at Wheelock Place. These have perhaps got you wanting to know more?! If you are planning a visit to Singapore you may have heard about the wonderful shopping on Orchard Road, but not a clue where to start? We have the answers for you.

Wheelock Place is an exciting cosmopolitan shopping destination in the heart of Orchard Road that meets every demand of the stylish urbanite. Historically, Wheelock Place has been best known as the site of Borders’ flagship Singapore store.

Eclecticism by Lauren Jasmine copyWith the exit of Borders in 2011, there was a lot of space to fill. Wheelock Place has quickly revamped itself and, in doing so, it does not disappoint! Much to our excitement, this 7-floor shopping haven has welcomed more local shops, local brands!! And transformed the basement (B1 and B2) into local shopping heaven. Whether you are a resident or visitor, we highly recommend you visit these local shops to discover some of our most loved local brands covering fashion, accessories, bags, shoes, homewares and gift ideas.

Saturday. #B2-05. Women’s Fashion.
Get to know two of Singapore’s local designers through the local label SATURDAY. Established in 2009, Saturday is synonymous with jersey dresses and intricate draping. We love the brand’s approach to fashion “to be inspired by the versatility of jersey fabrics and the carefree spirit of Saturday”. Emphasising the simplicity and comfort of modern fashion, Saturday’s pieces are perfect for the relaxed vibe of living in warmer climates.
