If you got excited about Keepers, the design collective which had its pop-up two years ago on Orchard Road, then we are happy to report that it has now found its new and permanent home. After three pop-up stores, the new permanent space at the National Design Centre (NDC) is opening on May 27 with a promise to bring in new designers every two months.
On display for the opening run will be Keepers founder Carolyn Kan and her label, Carrie K. whose handmade leather accessories will launch in the later half of 2016, along with artisanal candles by A Dose of Something Good, spice pastes by Batu Lesung Spice Company, dressy scarves by Binary Style; flavored chocolate morsels by Demochoco, organic skin products by Frank Skincare, locally inspired furnishings by Hinika and heritage-themed wallpapers by Onlewo.
If this sounds a bit like deja-vu, that’s because the NDC is already home to another multi-label boutique, albeit not such a locally inspired and eclectic one. Founded in HK, Kapok specializes in fashion and accessories from cult labels. With the addition of Keepers, the NDC and the surrounding area is becoming a hub for design-centric shopping.
Keepers will be open Mon-Sat from noon-7pm. More info at the KEEPERS: Singapore Design Collective website.
