Robin­sons Or­chard

260 Or­chard Road, tel: 6735-8838. Open daily, 10.30am-10pm. Leave the pas­tels and frills to lit­tle girls – th­ese Korean la­bels at the new Robin­sons Or­chard cater to women who pre­fer fem­i­nine looks with a chic, mod­ern edge. J Apos­tro­phe and LIE by Lie Sang Bong in­clude dresses and sep­a­rates that make for smart of­fice wear while Ba­sic House cov­ers all ground with sim­ple tees, tanks and sweaters for adults and chil­dren.

J Apos­tro­phe’s fig­ureskim­ming pieces are made from a sur­pris­ingly light­weight yet struc­tured knit ma­te­rial, while LIE has draped, easy-towear sil­hou­ettes with clean, asym­met­ri­cal lines.

Otona Mode

BHG Bugis, tel: 6223-2222. Open week­days, 10.30am-10pm; week­ends, 10am-10pm. This multi-la­bel con­cept store opened re­cently at the newly re­fur­bished BHG Bugis, and of­fers ap­parel and ac­ces­sories from Ja­pan and Korea. Pieces are cu­rated to re­flect the store’s name, which means “grown-up woman” in Ja­panese – we found comfy lace pe­plum tops and striped cot­ton dresses, ideal for week­ends. Prices range from $29 to $139, so you won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
