Within no time at all, local retail entrepreneurs have taken Cluny Court from being known as the local Cold Storage (and a good one at that) to an enchanting lifestyle destination right at your doorstep. Packed with local shops and local brands, Cluny Court is a delight for anyone with a desire to shop far from old haunts. Shopping in Cluny Court is thoroughly enjoyable as it is an extremely exciting shopping destination, with a couple of great options for a tasty bite to complete the experience.
We are pretty sure you will find it hard to walk away without purchasing something unique and special from one of our favourite stores…
Exquisite home decor with a touch of the hamptons
Looking for unique home accessories and gifts? Bungalow 55 might just be the perfect store for you. With an exquisite selection of interiors infused with a touch of modern Asian, combined with a seaside beach house-meets-Hamptons flair. Think sisal rugs, oversized Chinese ginger jars, table chandeliers, glass decanters, cushions, coffee table books as well as shells, coral and the cutest pineapple decor around – a trend to get into, perhaps?
Luxurious lingerie boutique
Presenting the widest selection of bras you can find, Change Lingerie stocks eight different bra models. Even better, busty lasses who have been having trouble fitting into Asian sizes will be pleased, as the bra models are stocked in sizes up to K cup. This is the perfect place for you to pick up beautiful basics and luxurious underwear for yourself – or providing a direction for you to point the hubby in!
Adorable locally designed kidswear
Keep your little ones looking stylish yet comfortable through the day with Elly’s adorable designs! Discover locally designed chic dresses for little girls and sharp, yet cheery shirts for boys. The place to deck out the littlies from top to toe, you will find adorable children’s shoes, soft toys, gift cards, fashion accessories and art prints that both you and the kids will fall head over heels with.
Outfits for juniors
Just next door to multi-label boutique, the dots, is its mini-me offshoot catering to tweens and twins. Aside from exclusively stocking the well-loved French brand IKKS Junior, Ginger Dots is peppered with an adorable mix of home accessories and furnishings from Galanga Living.
For the perfect gift
Racking your brains over the perfect gift? Gorgeous Gifts promises to be a one-stop gift shopping destination for even the fussiest people in your life. The shelves are regularly restocked with keepsakes such as ceramics from Hacienda Blue, Pratten wallets, printed bags by Lou Harvey, trinkets and charms from Triette Jewellery and in all seriousness, who wouldn’t appreciate a lovely hand-poured candle from Seda France?
Kid-oriented gift store
Decked out like a colourful candy shop, Groovy Gifts is a unique kid-oriented gift store packed with little knick-knacks, toys and party bag fillers. Ensure your party guest never leaves without a handful of fun collectibles. With everything from ‘scratch n sniff’ stickers to loom bands and lollipops to pick from, the kids will be enthralled for hours on end.
Chic designer accessories from around the world
You may have seen the name Hanna Lee at Tanglin Shopping Centre, but the local boutique has done so well for itself that they’ve branched out into their second outlet at Cluny Court. Bringing in the latest designs and trends from New York, London and other parts of Europe, with designer names such as Kenneth Jay Lane, Alexis Bittar, Ztai and many more, Hanna Lee offers a highly curated selection of fashion accessories that you won’t likely find elsewhere in Singapore.
Eclectic French-European home accessories
Add some charming personality to your home with the eclectic range of French-European home accessories to be found at Lemongrass & Aubergine. The highlights here are undoubtedly the wares from French brands such as Sabre, Tissage-Moutet, Artiga and Y’a Pas le Feu Au Lac, although L&A’s own range of Singaporean-inspired kitchen towels and napkins would also make good souvenirs.
Antique wood furniture for the modern home
Located in a little nook on the second floor of Cluny Court, Mudan is a store selling antique and reproduction furniture and decor. A great place to scout for antique wood furniture pieces, we spotted elegant consoles and tables crafted from quality wood that would make a fine contrast to any modern home. Beautiful contemporary black and white lacquered lamps would make great accents to a minimal interior.
Resort wear for tropical climates
A fantastic range of classic resort wear and accessories for women, tweens and girls, Paperbag Princess is the fairy godmother of fashion that is perfectly designed for tropical climates. You won’t be able to go past their stripey jersey dresses in a huge range of colours and sizes, or their inspiration bracelets. We especially love their support for sustainable brands such as Buddha Wear, which supports and cares for HIV positive children in Bali, and GoodWork(s), which donates 25% of proceeds to charity.
Novel collections from emerging designers
Offering a unique collection of emerging designers with a distinct European flair, Rosalie Pompon is perfect for the discerning woman. If you’re looking for some mother-daughter bonding, this is also an ideal spot, since they offer stylish fashion for both women and teenagers. The women’s boutique imports brands all the way from Paris to Brussels to Singapore, with brands such as Acquaverde, Bellerose, Bensimon, Hartford, Majestic, Reiko and Tinsel.
Stylish and versatile resort wear
Simone Irani is a Singapore based women’s wear label specialising in chic resort wear. Apart from its in-house label, the local women’s boutique also offers exciting resort wear designers from all over the world such as India, New York and Singapore. The uniqueness of the brand is that it recognises that resort wear is all about effortless style and can extend beyond the beach and into the city.
Multi-label boutique of emerging and established labels
We love us some new multi-label boutiques, so it’s with great pleasure that we found the dots, which brings in emerging and established brands from all corners of the globe to Singapore. These include both men’s and women’s wear labels such as IKKS, Save The Queen, Berenice, XOOS, Scooter Paris, Kabochon and Zeybra Portofino 1962.
Hip retail space for tweens
Filling the huge gap in the market Singapore has for tween clothing, Twelve By Elly is an amazing find at Cluny Court, with a wide range of clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, stationery and other lifestyle products for boys and girls aged six to twelve. A fascinating lifestyle retail store with stylish, hip and trendy items, your tweens will love Twelve by Elly as much as we do!
