It’s the midst of the Spring/Summer 2018 season and even though we’re always having Summer in Singapore, the fashion trends are heading back to lighter and brighter colours and fabrics. What better way to pair them with than our own Straw Bags? This season’s straw bag trend has been luxed up with the mix of styling high and low pieces to mix in natural materials like straw with your lighter coloured clothing. Since the straw bags tend to be on the lighter shade, you can easily pair them with deeper colours like earthy greens, browns and deeper navy blues to play up the natural vibes.

Ready for some lunchtime shopping?

Visit us at the House of Sheens retail showroom at 115 Amoy Street #04-00 if you’re working around the CBD area. The hip area of Amoy Street is home to bars and restaurants like Ding Dong, Birds of a Feather and Employee’s Only, and we are their neighbours! Tucked away in the attic level of 115 Amoy Street shophouse, the House of Sheens retail showroom is the hidden secret of the area.

The showroom is the perfect place for our regular shoppers to come by, grab a cuppa from Upside Down coffee (on us!), and enjoy an exclusive shopping experience that you can only have in person. You are welcome to touch and try on our bags, to see which one is the perfect bag for you! You can also shop Chocolate Gems bespoke jewellery like cocktail rings and drop earrings that retail here too.

In case, you need other reasons to come down, here are other hidden gems to check out around the Amoy/Telok Ayer area:

Technically located on Amoy Street, finding the entrance to the Mediterranean -inspired restaurant in the back alley of Gemmill Lane is part of the fun. Seemingly giving off underground vibes as a hidden spot, Maggie Joan’s doesn’t fail to deliver with flavour and styling in an intimate spot!

The Flying Squirrel:

Located in an alleyway off Amoy Street, the Flying Squirrel is another small but delicious modern Japanese-style  cafe. Lunch serves up tasty bentos and donburis, and dinner goes full swing into a modern sushi bar. Delicious! Also check out the Flying Squirrel Private Works on level 2 for omakase style dining.

Aloha Poke:

Aloha Poke was the first poke bar to open in Singapore, which serves up a healthy and tasty Hawaiian raw fish salad & rice bowl on Amoy Street. Go early to customize your own salad bowl and get a table by the window. By night, the eatery also becomes a tiki bar that serves more Hawaiian favourites like Loco Moco, Lomi Lomi  and Spam Musubi.
