The OG of the blogshop scene first started out as Bonito Chico, a humble side project back in 2005. Fast forward more than a decade, and Love, Bonito tops the list as Singapore’s online success story, with major expansions over the years and brick-and-mortar stores to boot. It’s grown up from its blogshop days, but we figured this list wouldn’t be complete without the name that started it all. Besides a widely-popular selection of trendy looks that are coveted by women of all styles, the household brand has also collaborated with celebrated designers and appeared on fashion runways. Oh, and any shopper who needs fashion tips can book a stylist session at one of its stores or sign up for its regular styling events.
Love, Bonito, available online and at Funan and 313 @ Somerset.
