Anya Hindmarch's very first Singapore boutique is made of digital dreams
Among the first forerunners to jump on the emoticon mania, the British accessories designer is as associated to yellow smiley faces and pixellated speech bubbles as Issey Miyake is to pleats and the Bao Bao bag. If you're a DIY junkie with a love for emojis, her line of poppy embossed leather stickers is your match made in sartorial heaven. And better yet, Anya Hindmarch has just opened her inaugural Singapore boutique in the Takashimaya Department Store.
The 500-square-metre station is an intimate space crafted in line with Hindmarch's 'Do Computers Dream When They Sleep' fall/winter 2016 design theme that harks back to the golden days of video arcades and '80s Space Invaders. As plush Martino Gamper furnitures sit alongside the artworks of British artists Julie Cockburn and Ryan Callanan (a smiley face sculpture hangs in the store), it's an emporium of eclectic bags any modern-day individual would appreciate for some Pac-man nostalgia that comes along with its own diamante stickers.
The Anya Hindmarch store is located at Branded Boutiques Level 2, Takashimaya Department Store, Ngee Ann City.
