House of Anli | French Brands in Singapore | Travelshopa

 

Ever wondered why some of fashion’s most commonly uttered terms originate from the French? Words like “vogue”, “haute couture”, and “chic” seem to give life to that French charm in ways no others can. Scores of fashion nerds before us have mused over the secret to French style –that air of mystery and a certain “je ne sais quoi“ that most, if not all Frenchies seem to possess.

On the eve of The French Chamber of Commerce Singapore second edition of So Chic, Your Essential Guide to French Shopping & Dining in Singapore, we present you with our curation of French brands in Singapore where you can get a tantalising slice of French fashion and interiors.
