After nine years in the retail industry, local boutique Actually is finally bringing its creativity to the design scene. Taking its name from the multi-label store, the inaugural collection has two lines: Classic and Kooky. The Classic collection is for the minimalist — think well-designed pieces including a functional drawstring bag that doubles up as a tote and, classically Singaporean, a chic tissue holder.
As the name suggests, Kooky is left of the middle and is characterised by neon colours and unique prints that take inspiration from Asian tableaus. A limited-edition range of passport holders bearing the Actually logo is sure to be a great conversation starter, as are the handy drawstring pouches that can hold everything from a Polaroid camera to loose knick-knacks.
The Classic and Kooky ranges will launch on 28 May and will be available exclusively at Actually Orchard Gateway.
