Dover Street Market is a multi-brand retailer from Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo and Adrian Joffe that offers some of the world’s most sought-after high-end brands such as Balenciaga, Alyx Studios and Gucci. What makes DSM special is its industrial-inspired architecture and the fact that it also carries affordable brands like Braindead and Carhartt.

Supplies & Co. is here to show you that there is more to high-end fashion than just the likes of Prada and Louis Vuitton. This retailer specializes in Japanese labels such as Engineered Garments, Needles, Tahiromiyashita The Soloist and Human Made, to name a few. Also, the store features an animated Yu Nagaba-designed lighting, so that is one more reason to check it out.

If you’re looking for more avant-garde brands like Rick Owens, Boris Bidjan Saberi, Ann Demeulemeester or Guidi, this would be the place. Over the years, L’armoire has also been introducing popular brands such as Rhude and Alyx Studios to its shelves. Do check out the place and chat with the friendly staff there who are always more than willing to share their knowledge on the different brands they offer.

Head down to 268 Orchard Road and you will find yourself amidst four retail giants. Surrender Store, in particular, is one of Singapore’s longest running stores and offers brands that you won’t find elsewhere. These include Visvim, Palm Angels, Neighborhood and 424, to name a few. However, if none of these brands interests you and you want to continue shopping, the Off White, County of Milan and Christian Dada stores are just steps away.

5) Manifesto
