Before you grow tired and exasperated at the same old fashion labels at different shopping malls, hit the bazaar Rapunsale. Organized by online boutique epilogue.com and rooftop bar Loof, this event features cool clothes, accessories, lifestyle products and Christmas gifts. Browse over edgy stuff, and take note, this is definitely not just another neighborhood pasar malam.
12 notable shops are involved in Rapunsale, of which include Antipodean, Asylum, BooksActually, Epilogue, Fling, Felt, Granny’s Day Out, Iyna Haava, Patiorockhouse, Simone Irani, Venue and White Dog Bobby. When asked about the selection of the labels setting up shop at Rapunsale, Lin Chan, one of the partners of Epilogue quips, “I handpicked only my favorite boutiques and labels for the event. They are all retailers with sass and spunk who’ve made a name for themselves with their unique collection of apparels, accessories, novelties and collectibles.” Bargain hunters can also look out for great discounts as well. “While we’re not a bargain basement event, we’re offering sales of up to 70 percent off. Prices will likely range from $15 to $350,” adds Chan.
With such an outstanding slew of labels in store, are there plans to make Rapunsale a regular event? “Yes, perhaps quarterly or bi-annually if this round proves a success,” says Loof’s Marketing Manager Gary Tan.
On the day, watch out for DJ NDC who will be dishing out downtempo electronica, funk and soul music. House pours are at one-for-one, while vodka jelly shots are available at three for just $10. Shoppers can enjoy pub grub such as lamb racks, bacon scallops and crayfish too. Housing a terrific lineup of homegrown labels, good food, music and wonderful drinks, Rapunsale is a must for fashionistas and music lovers.
