If you’ve caught the shopping bug, but are missing all the shopping events that usually occur during this time of year (gifts for your loved ones or to treat yourself!), you’re in luck. Boutiques Fair, the twice-yearly shopping event, has come up with an e-commerce platform, eBoutiques, that is available all year round. Apart from stocking some of the best local labels, from fashion, to wellness and lifestyle, approximately 80% of featured brands built on a mission of social responsibility, so you can truly give back while you shop.
Ahead, check out some of the local brands from eBoutiques that have caught our eye.
The humble shirt gets an upgrade here with Shirt Number White. Coming in both black and white colours, it is the form and tailoring here that really stands out. Local designer Shannon Lee carries with him an expertise in both women’s and men’s wear to create a collection of shirts that come in unique, origami patterns for versatile, statement pieces you’ll want in your wardrobe.
Started in 2016 by Bessie Ye, homegrown label R y e has become well loved for its functional garments with a pared back sensibility. Their collection of reinvented classics comes with an ethos for a slower pace of life through considered designs.
If you’re looking for garments with that extra pop of colour, you’ve come to the right place. David’s Daughter is not for the shrinking violet - expect to see statement items, from jumpsuits to midi dresses in bold prints and a bevvy of colours.
This safe and non-toxic local beauty label comes in delightfully minimal packaging and an entire range consisting of only four products, keeping to their values of keeping skincare simple: less ingredients, no unnecessary fillers, fewer products for less waste and clutter. Their products contain plant-based ingredients, such as Willow Bark and Witch Hazel in its face wash.
Zero waste, and made with carefully and sustainably sourced plant-based ingredients, OASIS: uses products that are kind to both your skin and the environment. The local beauty brand was started by Hildra Gwee, who started looking for natural remedies to her sensitive and blemish-prone skin. Expect products such as facial oils and solid shampoos and conditioners.
With staying in becoming the new norm, many of us have turned our attention towards our homes and turning them into its optimal state. That’s where Sunday Bedding comes in -- luxurious, high quality bed linen made out of their Cotton Sateen or Bamboo Sateen for that little extra pampering. It also comes with proprietary technology for wrinkle-free sheets, with no harmful chemicals.
This men’s and unisex clothing label melds eastern and western fashion elements to produce easy to wear, versatile pieces, from kimono coats to utility shorts. Started by NAFA graduate Xie Qian Qian, the brand utilises eco-friendly fabrics and detailing that is well suited for both genders.
