New surprises in store

For a good dose of retail therapy, make your way to Raffles City Shopping Centre

MAJE (#01-26)

Known for its bold, modern ready-to-wear collections and accessories, this is the French fashion brand’s third boutique in Singapore.

Founded in 1998, its collections feature trendy and classic pieces that combine casual wear and high fashion — think understated yet glamorous feminine silhouettes with subtle details and aesthetic twists.

Its iconic Nomade Moderne store concept evokes a contemporary, French luxury feel with its warm and detailed décor, and well-arranged apparel and accessories.

Clever touches include the use of modern marble finishings and brass rails as a contrast against a bright and graphic gold foil strip running through the store.

While you shop, you could pick up a styling tip or two for your home too.

LUSH SINGAPORE (#01-42)

Set to open on June 22, this new outlet will bring on board an array of exciting features and concepts, reflecting the brand’s innovative side.

Check out Lush’s iconic fresh face masks at the store’s deli-inspired display, or indulge in a Lush Spa experience with a personalised session of product demos and pampering.

The store will also have a dedicated feature section showcasing its fund-raising product Charity Pot, a rich hand-and-body lotion made with 20 ingredients such as cocoa butter and ylang ylang oil.

All sale proceeds (excluding sales tax) are donated to independent charities that support environmental protection, animal welfare, and human rights causes.

The 23-year-old United Kingdom brand is known for its use of fresh ingredients such as organic fruits in iconic, handmade products like fizzing bath bombs, shower jellies and solid shampoo bars.

It is also known for taking a stand against animal testing, and its strong support for Fair Trade and Community Trade initiatives. This is reflected in the new store where all materials used were carefully selected to have a minimal impact on the environment.

LACOSTE (#01-12)

This French clothing company opens its ninth — and flagship — store here in Singapore, showcasing a complete range of apparel, leather goods, fragrances, footwear and more.

The store features the brand’s new “Le Club” concept, inspired by the locker room of René Lacoste, and is the first of its kind in South-east Asia.

In addition to a quintessential polo bar showcasing the brand’s iconic polo shirts in the entire colour range, limited edition collections, such as the Lacoste Spring Summer ’18 Fashion Show collection, are also exclusively available at this store.

Also unique to this Raffles City boutique is an embroidery service that allows customers to personalise their Lacoste polos with their initials and country flag.

Go green with Innisfree (#B1-24)

From today, take part in the Korean brand’s annual Eco-Handkerchief Campaign, now in its ninth edition.

Simply purchase any of Innisfree’s limited-edition products, such as the brand’s bestseller and multiple beauty award-winner Green Tea Seed Serum (160ml, $49), from the Play Green Limited Edition Collection to receive a complimentary limited-edition Eco-Handkerchief.

This year, the designs focus on the theme of “Play Green Everywhere”, suggesting various ways to care for nature.

Each of the three trendy illustrations celebrate a Playgreener, one who thrives in various environments such as the city, sea, and forest.

For instance, the green “Skater” design shows a Playgreener who dreams of a cleaner city with clearer skies and less pollution, while the blue “Camper” illustration portrays a Playgreener who is hopeful of preserving thriving, evergreen forests, and the orange “Surfer” version tells the story of a Playgreener who lives by the ocean, and loves and protects the marine environment.
