New E-Boutique to Bookmark
Friday, 3 Aug 2012
Over at the Honeycombers, our shopping playground is the world wide web. It’s boundless, open 24/7, and if a particular site is low on stock, we just hop over to the next one and get it!
It’s ridiculously simple.
International shipping fees, however, are not always too simple to ignore.
Which is why we love that our local boutiques are starting to retail online. No shipping hassle, no long waiting times, and best of all – no crowds to battle.
Now everyone knows Mandarin Gallery is a treasure trove of all things chic. Number Fifty Boutique has been around for three years now, and they’ve just started a new e-boutique – exciting times!
Better yet, Sophy, the creative eye behind the boutique, is a huge advocate of Asian designers. She personally curates each designer’s selection and handpicks items that are edgy, and completely un-cookie-cutter. Asian labels include Thai brand Soda and Baking Soda, Hong Kong line Microwave, and Borneo-based darlings Sereni and Shentel who make the most exquisite headbands.
Keep a keen lookout for Hong Kong label Mata Hari – they have the cutest bags that are a good part quirky and sophisticated. We’re also eyeing the studded metallic clutch by Mata Hari, which is highly reminiscent of Alex Wang’s famed Rocco with a girlish spin.
Other brands include their in-house French line, DEJA FAN, and Swedish accessory label COOEE.
We’ve been told that the e-boutique’s web elves update the site every other day, so you can expect regular fresh eye candy up there. Plus, if you’re unsure of the fit of a dress or just want to see it in person, all you need to do is head down to Mandarin Gallery for a quick peek.
