One brand just ain't enough anymore. This new multi-label concept store in CityLink Mall is jam-packed with weekly entertainment, local and international fashion plus food and drinks. Here's what you need to explore...
It’s a no-brainer that multi-label concept stores such as Dover Street Market Singapore, Outside, Kapok and Naiise, are making waves in a shopping paradise like Singapore – they’re fun, experiential, Instagrammable and filled with great local and international brands. Face it, we’d rather get as much shopping as we can under one roof, and if we can squeeze in a bite or two, we’ll take it.
Now comes City of Tomorrow, the brainchild of Chiang Xiaojun, found of fashion label Pleatation, and Edwin Ng. Occupying a huge space within CityLink Mall, the store consists of an event space for guests to engage in weekly activities such as yoga and silent disco, as well as seven interactive zones for shoppers to explore. Each zone is specially themed and curated with over 50 different brands. Here’s what to expect when you enter this shopping oasis…

The Secret Garden
All that shopping got you feeling famished? Pop over to the F&B zone for some of Eureka Snacks’ light bites, The Talad Drink’s rainbow beverage, Alchemy X’s bottled cold brew, Tiramisu Hero’s signature dessert, a takeaway from SimplySg, or simply enjoy a glass of red or white by Underground Wines. We reckon this zone will be a hot favourite amongst the legions of miserable men waiting for their wives and girlfriends to be done shopping.
The Locker Room
This is a proper gentleman’s cave, where one can look dashing with suits, blazer, shirts, ties and accessories by local brands such as Gnome and Bow, Q Menswear and Flesh Imp, or the Godfather of dapper gents, Ted Baker. If you’re not all about looking like the next 007 agent, you can unleash your inner Bear Grylls with some adventure and lifestyle gear by Filson, QWSTION, UCON and more.
Follow the clean lines and browse through racks of minimalist fashion pieces including ready-to-wear dresses, shirts, skirts and trousers. Mix and match items from labels such as BSYM, Soignè The Label, Arete Goods, Anello, Unda and walk&rest. Add dainty watches by Daniel Wellington and MVMT, as well as handmade jewellery by local makers Chainless Brain and [in]trigued to your accessory drawer. And why not light a candle or two by Temple Candles, or create your own fragrance with Scent by SIX to set the mood?
The Queen’s Room
Give yourself the royal treatment and fill your shopping baskets with lingerie, evening gowns, party dresses and loungewear by Pleatation, MaisonZhou, Mashizan, BLUM and Dur Doux. After trying different pairs of heels, let OSIM pamper your tired feet and soothe your aching muscles with its magnificent machine located within the area.
An indoor Tropicana, this vibrant space is filled with colourful beach dresses, swimwear and bohemian accessories by local labels Kalaia, Kenzilily, Yacht 21, The Wit and The Will, as well as Hong Kong brand Hellolulu. Mix a variety of colours and personalise your very own nail polish with Singapore’s bespoke beauty brand Nail Deck. There are also wooden swings and rattan chairs dotted in the area for you to put your feet up after all that shopping, or cop an Instagram shot. Nothing but good vibes here!
Whether you’re diving into a new fitness program or taking the athleisure style by storm, the Sports Hall is the place to flex those (shopping) muscles. Gear up and load up active wear fit for both the gym and a casual day out by Funfit, Nixon, RESHOEVN8R, Rangoon Club Culture, Timex and Urban Slings.
