One of the most popular denim brands in the world, Evisu was founded in Japan in 1991 and is named after the Japanese god of prosperity, Ebisu. Initially only around 14 pairs of jeans a day were created, each one caringly hand-painted with the now famous seagull logo.
Evisu captured the imagination of the detail-obsessed Japanese fashion crowed and spurred a revival of interest in vintage denim which spread around the world. Today Evisu has gained critical acclaim, as one of the ultimate denim must haves, is internationally known and embraced by both collectors and hipsters alike. Evisu was initially more a labour of love than a commercial venture and despite phenomenal success. Evisu's mission to create the highest quality products has remained unchanged. This underlying value defines Evisu’s position as an icon in the history of denim wear.
Ted Baker's ION Orchard store has reopened with a brand new look. Inspired by Singapore’s beautiful greenery, Ted welcomes you to his blossoming garden.
Since launching as a shirt specialist in Glasgow in 1988, Ted Baker has quickly become one of the UK's leading fashion retailers.
From the beginning Ted has had a very clear, unswerving, focus on quality, attention to detail and a quirky sense of humour, so much so in fact that the first stores used to provide a laundry service for every shirt purchased – something that gained the quickly growing brand the title of ‘No Ordinary Designer Label’. Everything produced under the Ted Baker name has his personality woven into its very heart.
Savoir Beds has launched its first Southeast Asian boutique at the Raffles Arcade. Savoir make fewer than 1,000 luxury handcrafted beds a year because they’re focused on making the best, not the most.
With over 14 global showrooms, from London to New York, Paris to Shanghai, Savoir’s mission is to provide every customer with the most comfortable and stylish bed imaginable. From the required support to the style of the home, dimensions, materials and fabrics can all be personalised. Beds for superyachts, headboards inspired by architecture and bespoke prints; anything that can be imagined can be made.
The Savoir story began in The Savoy Hotel, when in 1905 impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte unveiled an establishment revered for it luxurious creature comforts and legendary services. With no bed meeting his pioneering luxury standards, D’Oyly Carte set about creating one. The result is still made today, Savoir N°2 (the Icon) and the spirit of its creation governs Savoir’s approach to every bed it creates.
Skilled craftsmen work intently at individual oak trestles; the tapping of tacks, material in motion and calm conversation between colleagues. These are the Savoir Bedworks in West London and Wales, the antithesis of a production line. There are no hulking machines, just craftsmen hand-making a bespoke bed from inception to completion. Every bed is bespoke, from custom comfort to design details, made and signed by one master craftsman for one customer.

Mister Wu at Chijmes is a modern Chinese tea house that serves a large selection of Chinese teas with a delicious selection of dim sum and la mian noodles. At night, it transforms into a cosy garden to enjoy tea cocktails and craft Hong Kong beers under a romantic canopy of pink lanterns serenaded by soothing Chinese music.
Ramen Champion is proud to announce that it will now house Gyumaru at its Bugis+ enclave. Gyumaru is the first ramen restaurant in Singapore to serve Gyukotsu Ramen (beef bone ramen), which is a rare dish in the ramen world.
A riff on the popular tonkotsu, the fully emulsified broth of the Gyukotsu Ramen boasts a clear consistency and a pronounced piquant flavour of beef fat. Relish the palate-enveloping note of the beef broth, which is made with beef bone and oxtail. The entire preparation takes two days to complete — the broth is first boiled for nine hours, before it is cooled and refrigerated for it to set into a thick and flavourful concentrate. Each beef broth cube is then simmered over low heat before it is served.
The broth is accompanied with springy thin noodles custom-made from a local Japanese noodle making specialist — for the doneness, there are two options to choose from: soft and hard. Thick tender cubes of well-marbled ribeye sourced domestically from a halal-certified supplier are placed atop the ribbons of al-dente noodles. Other ingredients including green onions and Japanese leek contribute delicate notes to the overall dish. Top the dish with the optional coriander for a local twist and additional fragrant lift!
Gyumaru is in the process of receiving its Halal certification — Muslim gourmands can very soon enjoy non-pork ramen!
Wildly popular in Australia, thanks to its customisable menu made from the freshest quality ingredients, Mad Mex has powered into Singapore with its first restaurant in Singapore that recently opened at Marina Bay Financial (MBFC) Tower 3.
With more than 70 locations now operating in Australia and New Zealand, the dedicated Mad Mex team has served up more than four million burritos across both countries in the last 12 months. The success of the group has spurred the new international expansion and coincides with Mad Mex’s new 2019 brand refresh and positioning, ‘Fresh Fuel For Life’, which places arevived focus on healthy living and supporting people in living life to the fullest.
The latest move comes after the owner of 4FINGERS bought a 50% stake in Mad Mex last year. The brand is looking forward to more openings in Singapore and Malaysia, where its arrival could fill a gap in the food industry with honest, healthy ‘fast food’.
With Mad Mex there is no ‘burrito-ing’ round the bush; only fresh, ethically-sourced ingredients are used in its food every day. So pure and simple, the recipes used are available online along with a nutritional calculator for full transparency into what customers are eating. Customary Mexican favourites – Burrito, Naked Burrito, Tacos, Nachos, Quesadilla, Grande MeltTM and Ensalada – are served and customers are encouraged to customise their meals according to their dietary requirements – anyone can eat at Mad Mex.
Founder and CEO Clovis Young of Mad Mex sums up the ingenuity of Mad Mex’s humble but revolutionary ethos, “I started Mad Mex in 2006, because I absolutely love Mexican food, and I wanted to share that love with all of Australia, and the world. I wanted my customers to get a fast meal with homemade quality, made entirely of real ingredients. That means the fewest preservatives, oils and sugars – while always big on taste. You should never have to choose between a quick meal and quality healthy food.”
