Checked out the new Funan mall yet? If you weren’t one of the many who rushed down during their opening weekend (Jun 28-30), here’s one reason why you should.
The new Love, Bonito store at Funan is the local fashion brand’s third in Singapore and their largest yet. At over 6,000 sq ft, it’s larger than their 313@Somerset flagship. And with that size, comes plenty of space for bells and whistles that make shopping there such an experience.
First, the cool stuff. Along their central corridor is an augmented reality-enabled walkway. Simply scan a QR code with your smartphone and you’ll be brought to a Facebook camera that erupts into colourful blooms when you point it at the walkway. Then there’s the infinity mirror room. Essentially a walk-in space with mirrors around you in a 180° spread, it’s the perfect spot for a glam shot for the ‘gram.
Actually, the entire pink pastel hued space is so photo-worthy that it’s hard not to snap away at everything. But it’s also the practical stuff that turns this store into an experience zone. The modular fitting rooms they’re known for, where you’re able to open up the dividers between them, makes its appearance here.
Then there’s the new and supremely spacious VIP fitting rooms. Those in wheelchairs and those with prams will get priority access to these rooms. They are also used for those enlisting help from Love, Bonito stylists—it’s a new service they’re offering—so they can give their two cents in the fitting room with you.
There’s also a community space at the back of the store, where fashion, beauty, health and wellness events as well as thematic workshops will be held.
Need more reason to head down? Just for the month of July, a minimum spend of $120 will get you a free limited edition scarf. There are also Funan exclusive graphic tees ($23.90) themed around Love, Bonito’s values of confidence, community and change. Grab one while you can.
Love, Bonito Funan is located at #02-09, 107 North Bridge Rd.
