The buzz: Takashimaya is undergoing a revamp, but it’s business as usual already for some of the fancy new arrivals including American fashion house Coach’s first standalone boutique for men in Singapore.
The vibe: The 575 sq. ft. space blends in with the rest of the department store with its simple, contemporary interiors that feature glass fixtures, mirrored walls, glossy white alongside black framed shelves and wooden display counters.
The goods: What it lacks in décor and size, the store makes up for in its impressive dapper wares. The entire range of the men’s line is stocked here—hand bags, small leather goods, outerwear, footwear, watches and sunwear ($100 upwards)—plus the brand’s collaborative and special edition pieces like those designed and impeccably crafted by American designer Billy Reid ($430 upwards).
Why you’ll be back: For obvious reasons: it’s currently the only men’s dedicated Coach boutique in town. And if that’s not enough of a draw, the departmental store’s tenant mix is becoming more stylish by the day.
