It has been a full two years since Borders took its leave of Wheelock Place, but the mall, located just across the road from Ion Orchard, has certainly wasted no time in keeping itself upbeat and trendy by constantly refreshing the stores available in its newly fashion-themed basements.
Although multi-label pop-up boutique The Emporium has closed, most of the amazing shops such as Eclecticism by Lauren Jasmine, Individual Expression and Saturday are still there – and more! These added women’s fashion stores thrown into the mix would definitely give you even more reason to drop by this increasingly fashionable mall.
As for The Emporium, it has popped up at 112 Katong and will probably pop up again elsewhere later in the year – but don’t worry, you can trust us to keep you updated. Stay tuned for details, but in the meantime, check out these new hunts at Wheelock!
M dreams. It’s hard to find a fashionista who wasn’t over the moon when news hit that Melissa shoes were finally arriving in Singapore – and we’ve got M dreams, the only authorised distributor in Singapore, to thank for that. The original “jelly” shoe brand, this Brazilian label revolutionised women’s footwear in 1979 with its unconventional designs that combine art, luxury and self-expression. And not only are they fashionable (Melissa has collaborated with renowned designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu and Jean Paul Gaultier), the shoes are also comfortable and eco-friendly – a plus point in any industry! 501 Orchard Road, #B2-03 Wheelock Place. Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm daily.
33 thirty three. Wheelock is really upping its footwear game – on top of M dreams, they now have 33 thirty three, a multi-label shoe boutique specialising in fashionable footwear by the likes of G-Star Raw, Double Identity and Police 883 for both women and men. They’ve got stylish leather offerings for work, as well as comfy canvas sneakers and high tops for weekends. Judging by how its flagship store is in Paragon Mall, you can be sure to find sophisticated designs that offer a luxurious comfort here. 501 Orchard Road, #B2-07, Wheelock Place. Opening Hours: 11am – 9.30pm daily.
Southaven. Earlier this year, Wheelock Place boasted a great multi-label concept store called The Emporium, which offered homewares, fashion and accessories all under one roof – only problem was that it was a pop-up store. But in its place is a store that’s just as brilliant – Southaven presents one-of-a-kind designs for women by their very own team of local designers. Only the finest of Japanese fabrics are used to offer the ultimate comfort in every piece. Melded with the classic styles of Southaven, we sure are loving what they’ve got to offer! 501 Orchard Road, #B1-04, Wheelock Place.
