Mark of the Brits

Marks & Spencer – fab food, though not exactly fashion forward on our radar. But after seeing its newly revamped flagship store at Wheelock Place this week, we were sold.

If you haven’t visited yet, the store boasts a total shopping experience with its most extensive range to date – find fashion, lingerie, beauty products, kids clothes, fine wines, and its usual top-notch nosh all in the same store.

Ok, let’s be real. Marks & Spencer has great food, but their clothing tends to err on the…. frumpy side. With their latest Spring/Summer collection though, M&S have upped their game with this season’s hottest prints and colours.

For us ladies, there’s a touch of nostalgia with their sixties silhouettes, luxe silks with a sporty twist (very on-trend), flashy fluoros and easy Park Avenue inspired pieces. We also love the classic Brit style of menswear that the store carries – bound to get any guy looking sharp!

We also love that the store’s furnishings highlight the distinct identities of each fashion line – look out for touches like an Italian scooter, an illuminated plinth, and even a lingerie chaise. Very classy, guys.

But we’re most excited about – drumroll please – Marks & Spencer’s very first bakery in Singapore, which offers freshly baked breads and pastries, including French petit pains, bagels, cheese topped pretzels, muffins with lemon, chocolate or blueberry filling, pecan and maple danishes, and a variety of tarts.

Shopping and food? You bet we’re on it.
