From sleek shoes, watch winders and aged whiskies to structured leather bags for men and women, these homegrown brands in Singapore are easy to fall in love with.

Shoes, bags and accessories 

charles & keith

Founded in 1996, Charles & Keith is hugely popular among Singaporeans thanks to its on-trend bag and shoe collections. Today, the brand’s presence extends to Europe, America and the Middle East. Alternatively, try Pedro, an offshoot label of the former with timeless shoes at slightly higher (but nonetheless affordable) prices. 

PAZZION shoes

If you fancy comfy footwear, PAZZION prides itself on quality leather heels, loafers, sneakers, pumps and sandals. Each piece is crafted to last, and there's even a Mommy & Me collection if you’re after matching shoes for yourself and the little one.

Should you fancy yourself a quality crocodile leather piece, KWANPEN’s products are proudly fashioned in Singapore – backed by over 80 years of heritage. The homegrown label offers structured men’s and women’s bags, wallets, belts and accessories that make perfect gifts for that special person in your life.

Activewear is all the rage now, so consider stopping by Sports Town – located not far from Digital Light Canvas, an impossible-to-miss behemoth of an art installation by Japanese collective teamLab. Here, you’ll also find sports equipment for everything from water sports to trail-running and tennis.

Jewellery, watches and sunglasses

With over 30 stores spread across 11 countries, luxury timepiece importer Sincere Fine Watches isn’t a household name to be trifled with. Stocked within its Marina Bay Sands boutique are well-loved brands including TAG Heuer, Audemars Piguet, Franck Muller and Panerai. Watch collectors (or horologists, if you’re so inclined) ought to also drop by Orient Crown, which specialises in watch winders, watch winder safes and jewellery boxes.

RISIS jewellery
And while we’re on the topic of jewellery boxes, RISIS and SK Gold offer unique pieces to suit your needs. The former – best known for refined necklaces, including orchids preserved and plated in 24-carat gold – draws inspiration from Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim. SK Gold, meantime, has all manner of engagement rings, wedding bands and charms to choose from.

You’ll also find a myriad of sunglass collections in Spectacle Hut Boutique, in addition to eye checkups, and eyecare and prescription eyewear products.

Ready-to-wear pieces

In Good Company Singapore
In Good Company is one of those labels that’s earned a following thanks to its semi-casual, everyday pieces that take you from work to a night out. For formal, luxury streetwear, Lisa Von Tang is a go-to – and eco-conscious, to boot. Textiles used in its collections are salvaged from overrun productions and given new leases of life, in the process lowering the label’s overall carbon footprint. The label has a fair wage policy, too, so you can be assured the hands that've pieced each outfit together haven't been exploited of their labour.

Whiskies and cigars

Do you know your scotch from bourbon, and blended whisky from a sour mash whiskey? The world of whisky (and whiskey) can seem an intimidating one to step into. But whether or not you’re well-versed in it is no matter; the folks at The Whisky Distillery are well-poised to answer your every question and tell you about the bottles stocked within – most of which hail from Scottish and Japanese distilleries.

Much as we’d like to expound the benefits of leading a smoke-free life, The Oaks Cellars is a rare gem in Singapore that carries cigars alongside over 1,000 labels of fine, rare and vintage vino including Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Chateau Lafite Rothschild.
