We love the sophisticated ‘fits made by Akinn. This local fashion brand in Singapore launched its first collection back in 2019 – surviving the pandemic, and making itself known through various collaborations with established faces. Think along the lines of local celebs like Inch Chua and Sharon Au. You’ve got to check out its new “athlestyle” pieces – designed for the hectic lifestyle of the modern woman.

4. Flair by Tori
You won’t be able to take your eyes off the clothes at Flair by Tori. It features riveting patterns in vibrant shades and eye-catching designs to zhuzh up any outfit. The Meihitsu kimono cardigan is a must-have in your wardrobe. And the Hakama high-waisted pleated shorts pair perfectly well with its selection of colourful statement tops. Did we mention they’re made in such a way that you can go bra-free? We’re sold!

If edgy streetwear is more up your alley, you’ll love the clothes at Playhood. This unisex Singaporean label produces wearable pieces of art using hand-painted illustrations. It was established in 2017 but has been steadily growing in popularity over the last couple of years due to the rising interest in indie fashion in Singapore. We absolutely love its sunflower knit tube dress and cropped cardigans.
