My Trip Down Haji Lane

HIPSTERS PARADISE

Finally after 5 months of living in Singapore and 4 months of knowing about the little gem I snuck some time away from my usual weekend and got my butt down to Haji Lane. By luck it ended up being one of those clear, bright, hot and sunny days Singapore has during this wet and humid rainy season and all of the colourful and compactly built shop fronts looked more special than normal.
Note: stores open at 1 pm on Sunday! Arriving early actually worked out pretty well as I had time to stroll around and explore Arab street, the surrounding area, the quaint cafes side by side to numerous merchants selling silk materials and Persian rugs.

There’s a good number of so called “boutiques” selling cheaper grade garments at inflated costs, kind of the sort you find in market stores in Hong Kong or Japan but there are some impressive collections in a handful of them too. Jun and Soon Lee were my favourite stores, their undiscovered designer collectives were unique and trendy and the quality of the garments exceeded most of the high street stuff I buy at the same value.

Jun, Korean boutique, Haji Lane, features many well tailored but modern fit work wear pieces and with designers that re experimentative with colours and unusual materials.

Soon Lee, 73 Haji Lane, here you’ll find a collection of some of the most dreamy and romantic apparel you will ever see plus and interesting assortment of dainty jewelry that perfectly matches the magical clothes.

A few other interesting stores worth a visit is Modparde (also online store), Wicked Laundryeighty two tales plus Zhai for their intriguing bamboo clothes. Full shop directory from TOSS here
