Hip new kids on the block

Urban highlights three chic additions to the retail scene. 


59 Eng Hoon Street, 01-79


What: Bloesem is a multi-label store with a focus on independent international labels.

Launched in February, the roughly 750 sq ft store is run by the same people behind the interior design blog of the same name.

The majority of the labels featured are from Scandinavia and the Netherlands. The store offers a slew of interior design goods, in addition to design-centric beauty supplies and fashion accessories.

Why: A hidden gem of a store, the Bloesem shop is all about Scandi-chic.

Its quirky offerings reinforce the idea that simple does not mean boring and the cosy shop has a welcoming vibe.

At its nearby studio under Bloesem Classes, the store also offers craft workshops and seminars - from calligraphy to shibori, a type of Japanese cloth-dyeing.
