The buzz: Australian luxury accessories label Oroton opens its first standalone boutique here at the always reliable ION Orchard.
The vibe: Personalized and chic. The well-informed staff are ever ready to field any questions about the collection, all set within a well-lit space which oozes a suitably cozy and intimate mood.
The goods: Stellar and varied. Those looking for something more seasonal can go for the Spring/Summer 2011 pieces, based on Oroton’s rich history, which can be traced way back to 1938 Japan. Highlights include the luxurious silk on structured tote bags ($1,045) as well as soft lamb nappa pouches. But the centerpiece in the store is the limited edition Check Sparkle Jacquard Barrel Bag ($1,715), featuring intricate sequins, glazed leather trim and patent leather zip pull—available in both black and vanilla. Yummy.
Why you’ll be back: Because you can never over accessorize.
#03-01 ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, 6634-270. Open daily 10am-10pm.
