Benares & Pashma bring India to Singers
Tuesday, 30 Oct 2012
The colours on store racks may be turning moody, but you can always count on Indian textiles for a good pop of colour all-year round.
If you love colour, you need to see this one.
Although housed in the central ION Orchard, Benares has been designed to resemble a bustling Indian bazaar – complete with hidden alcoves. The global premium lifestyle Indian brand blends the mystique of old India with the contemporary style of the country’s modern design talents, and pays special attention in highlighting the younger talent of Indian design.
Standout products include their signature Benares Wrap Dress, a 100% silk and brocade dress that is as flattering as it is stunning, their wooden serving trays that also double as extra tabletop space in seating areas, and – a crowd favourite – leather and tetron trunk tables that come in a lacquered yellow, green, and black.

Everyone knows that a large cashmere scarf is a versatile closet staple. And while Pashma’s first Singapore outlets were strategically established at Changi Airport’s departure terminals 2 and 3, the brand has now opened two other stores in more central areas – Raffles Shopping Arcade at the iconic Raffles Hotel, and at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
A leading retailer in luxury resort wear and noble fiber accessories, Pashma currently has over 1200 outlets in 40 countries around the world, with its first official store launched in Milan in 1999. Their team of master cradtsmen and in-house designers work to produce cashmeres wraps, scarves, and resort wear using unparalleled cashmere, silk, and linen.
