The best of Scotts Square
Tuesday, 7 Feb 2012
Nestled between Tangs and the Grand Hyatt stands a new shopping hero, Scotts Square. With Hermes and Michael Kors calling you with their street facades, we take you on the inside with our pick of the stores.
The French Brazilian designer has built a 70+ worldwide store consortium around her hallmark white shirt selection. Fontaine is a regular in Vogue, Numero and Marie Clare with her fabulous collection of tops, knits, accessories, Italian leather belts and bags.
We love: All shirts in her high-end line are machine washable!
Where: Anne Fontaine, #01-01/02, Scotts Square
The all-American collection of clothing, handbags, jewellery, eyewear, oh-so sweet fragrances and coveted watches has arrived. Known for defining American sportswear, Kors line is filled with understated yet glamorous pieces, in neutral colour palettes and almost always with a practical focus. Must-see!
We love: not having to shop online for our MK fix – anymore!
Where: Michael Kors, #01-16/17 Scotts Square
Paul & Joe
Instantly graced by it’s golden tiled mosaic decor, filled with kitten-print silk wraps, floral peep toe sandals and lightweight luxurious maxi’s, French brand Paul and Joe’s second Singapore store is here. Known for quirkily printed pieces and color-pop cover-ups, the selection in store is from the latest collection with the Singapore lifestyle in mind.
We love: The por homme one-of-a-kind fitted shirts in lightweight cottons to please any colour and pattern preference.
Where: Paul & Joe, #01-03, Scotts Square
When shopping European labels, the best indulgence? The finest of French pastries, of course. Maison Kayser’s croissants keep themselves lightly intact until you gently guide them to your mouth where the buttery goodness melts in sheer delight. Paired with a selection of teas and perhaps a coffee eclair and you’re good to get back to the shopping. Highly recommended.
We love: a parfait French croissant!
Where: Maison Kayser, #B1-09 Scotts Square
This is the accessories mecca, with a selection surveyed with only the finest buying taste, housed in a unique store concept layout. All of fashion’s darlings are here, Proenza Schouler, Stella McCartney, McQueen, Chloe, Linda Farrow as well as your favourite wardrobe staples from Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch.
We love: The three metre tall giant shoe sculpture and themed displays of perfectly edited shoes, bags and accessories.

Easily the next mid-day go-to, just like the original Mandarin Gallery cafe the menu boasts an all day breakfast with their wide sweet to savoury, Mexico to Americano range. Leave room for their delicious homemade apple pies perfect with their all natural tea selection.
We love: This branch happily take reservations so you’ll never have to wait for a table again. Phew!
