Well-loved globally for its instantly wearable and contemporary designs, British luxury jewellery brand, Monica Vinader, is proud to open its third Singapore boutique store at Westgate, in the heart of Jurong Gateway.
Designed by Monica herself and the same team of architects that developed the brand’s international stores, the interior reflects the brand’s design philosophy, focusing on craftsmanship and quality materials to create an inclusive luxury shopping environment.
Customers enter the boutique underneath a brushed brass façade, past the floor-to-ceiling windows to discover a cube of gold jewellery vitrines displaying the full collection, lit by an eye- catching Tom Dixon installation of six ‘Melt’ pendants hanging at varying heights. The back of the store features an iconic branded wall in a Monica Vinader signature berry shade, adding to the atmosphere of contemporary glamour.
As a brand synonymous with personalisation, the boutique features one of Monica Vinader’s signature engraving bars; a custom built, free-standing structure made from contemporary black steel and brass. Customers will be able to personalise their pieces with names, messages, motifs or even hand drawn doodles using the complimentary, same-day engraving service.

Sugarhaus has opened its second outlet within retail landmark of the East, Tampines 1. This is a unique tie up with United Overseas Bank (UOB), where the dessert parlour will operate from the Bank’s adjoining retail space. Apart from a streamlined menu of its signature brunch options, there is also a selection of locally-inspired homemade ice cream.
Known as “Bing Qi Lin” before it rebranded to become Sugarhaus in October 2016, the year-old brand’s flagship outlet is located within Serene Centre at Bukit Timah. Since then, it has cemented itself as a go-to spot for hearty brunches and desserts for those residing in the West.
Its new 26-seater outlet shares the same brunch menu as its first, albeit a more streamlined one. Diners can power through the day with the Sourdough Toast, accompanied with a choice of four variations: Truffled 63 Degree Eggs; Smoked Salmon, Dill, Cream Cheese and Capers; and Whole Sliced Avocado, Honey & Homemade Dukkah. Another option is the Melted Cheese Toastie with gruyere, cheddar, mozzarella, and served with tomato soup. Yet another choice is the Vietnamese Beef Stew – beef brisket braised in traditional Vietnamese spices, and served with sourdough.
Moving on to the sweets, Sugarhaus’ most popular item, the Rich Man’s Chocolate Cake, takes centre stage as the only plated dessert available here. The selection of ice creams, however, remains as the main draw. The ice creams, made from scratch in-house, come in a variety of flavours created by its owner, Stanley. The premium flavours stand out for the fact that they are richer and creamier than most commercial ice creams. While fans will be happy to find familiar flavours such as the Dutch Chocolate, Earl Grey Lavender and Thai Milk Tea, what sets the second outlet apart from the first, is the focus on locally-inspired flavours. These include Taro, Coconut Kaya, and Durian. Additionally, the second outlet exclusively offers flavours such as Hojicha, Apple Pie, White Chocolate Raspberry and Black Forest.
For a truly indulgent sweet treat, diners can pair their ice creams with Sugarhaus’ crispy and fluffy Waffles.
To complete their meal, they can also order a selection of coffees, teas, bottled drinks and juices.
Hoshino Coffee, is renowned for its retro Japanese-Western café offering of hand-drip coffee and fluffy pancakes. They've just opened their 7th outlet here at OneKM Mall in Tanjong Katong.
Housed on the second floor of OneKM Mall, residents and executives in the eastern part of Singapore can now experience Hoshino’s signature retro European atmosphere interlaced with Japanese elements.
Hoshino Coffee, which was established in 2011, has more than two hundred outlets in Japan. Singapore is its first overseas foray, with seven outlets now and remains a key market to serve as a springboard into other South East Asian countries.
Since opening its first outlet in Singapore in 2012 in Plaza Singapura, Hoshino has been gaining popularity with the local clientele who visit the various outlets for the carefully prepared hand-dripped coffee, the Fuwa Fuwa Souffle, Omu Rice and fluffy Pancakes. As Hoshino places customer experience as priority, feedback suggests that it is timely for it to expand its presence out from central Singapore to the heartlands.
In this connection, OneKM Mall in Tanjong Katong, has been selected after careful consideration, as the first Hoshino Coffee outlet to be set up in the eastern part of Singapore. Serving both the residential as well as office base, OneKM is near Paya Lebar MRT and targets aspirational urbanites and families living in East Coast as well as the students and working executives in the area.
Customers in the east can conveniently drop in to enjoy Hoshino’s old world charm in a nostalgic setting replete with dark wood, leather seats and servers dressed as butlers.
Inspired by the long-legged, long-necked wading bird — often viewed as a good omen — which builds large nests on the tops of trees and buildings, Mr Stork will house ten teepee huts set amid a lush oasis.
You can view their menu here. Mr Stork also offers the Andaz Pale Ale on tap, produced by popular local microbrewery, RedDot Brewhouse and it is exclusive to Andaz Singapore.
