Swiss luxury skincare brand La Prairie unveils its first reimagined concept store in Southeast Asia, exclusively at Takashimaya Department Store. Located in the heart of Singapore’s main shopping belt on Orchard Road, the 43 sq m counter is meticulously designed – inspired by the authentic, sophisticated elegance of Swiss Contemporary Architecture.
Developed internally by Stana Pijunovic, in-house Chief Architect and head of a team of Swiss architects and designers, the new global store design perfectly embodies La Prairie’s long-standing quest for timeless beauty. The new Takashimaya counter is a haven of pristine elegance that offers an intimate consultation space and a private facial cabin – creating a fluid and seamless customer journey.
Defined by visionary Swiss architects, the school of Swiss Contemporary Architecture is a style at once raw and refined, deceptively simple in its execution, physically intense – imposing even – yet always in a poetic balance with the surrounding landscape. Integrating Swiss essence into its design, each fixture and structure in the new counter tells a different story. From the walls – using veneer wood from Switzerland, designed in a representation of the Swiss Alps, down to the table legs – structured to resemble the mountain landscape in Switzerland. The pristine and refined layout of the store echoes elegance and timeless beauty, which the brand represents.
La Prairie’s new visual merchandising aesthetic integrates the school of Land Art, a conceptual approach rooted in nature itself. Using wood and mineral elements, natural and noble materials, it celebrates the vitality and beauty of nature while demonstrating a deep respect for it.

Hanbang Skin Solutions, the latest Korean facial service centre entrenched in Korean traditional massage technique, has opened its first centre at NEX Serangoon.
Established by KC Group, the same people behind the successful cluster of beauty and hair businesses, namely Yakson Singapore, Apgujeong Hair Studio, Myeongdong Hair Studio and Aoyama Hair Studio, the new centre features facial treatments that incorporate its key proprietary GeunmakTM Therapy – a Korean traditional skincare method, which enables customers to achieve firmer facial muscles, as well as a smoother and brighter skin appearance.
Spanning about 1,000 sq ft with eight private treatment rooms bathed in light beige and woody hues, the centre offers customers a calming and relaxing environment. More importantly, customers can expect attentiveness and professional service from the skilled beauticians.
Instead of focusing on the surface layer of the skin, Hanbang’s GeunmakTM Therapy concentrates on the deeper layers by stimulating the fascia; which is a layer of connective tissue made up of collagen that sits beneath the skin to enclose and stabilise the facial muscles. Using the Korean traditional massage technique, this facial therapy helps to relieve tensions between the muscles; boosts blood circulation, and activates the lymph nodes on the face concurrently.
One of the signature treatments at Hanbang Skin Solutions is the Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care. Glycation occurs when one consumes too much sugar, which can weaken the skin and internal organs, as well as retards the skin’s protein, elastin and collagen production. As a result, the skin starts to wrinkle, sag and become dull. In order to prevent premature aging of the skin, Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care treatment infuses essential nutrients into the skin to support the skin’s structure. The proprietary facial massage technique used in the treatment would promote skin elasticity and contour the face through detox and lymphatic drainage, which in turn, firm up the muscles.
Every facial treatment at Hanbang Skin Solutions is specially curated to target different common skin concerns among Singaporean women and men. Before extending any treatment, customers will undergo a skin analysis, which allows the beauty therapist to recommend the most suitable treatment and products for their skin condition in order to achieve optimal facial result. Besides Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care, other available treatments include Anti-Blemish Care, Deep Pore Cleansing Care and Hydro Boost Care, just to name a few.

Timber battens cover the ceiling of skincare brand Aesop's newest store in Singapore, which architecture firm Snøhetta based on a nutmeg plantation that once occupied the site.
The new store is located on the basement level of the ION shopping centre just off Orchard Road, close to an area that was once used as a nutmeg plantation.
Inspired by the site's history, Snøhetta, the firm behind the recent SFMOMA extension, used a collection of materials, colours and forms to create what they call an "upside-down forest".
A dark sisal carpet references the orchard floor, while thin timber battens hanging from the ceiling suggest a series of tree trunks.
Walls are painted in a shade of pink intended to be reminiscent of the colour of mace, a spice harvested from the nutmeg fruit.
Materials used are often indigenous to the region, such as Kerstin Thompson Architects' perforated gum-wood details for a store in Melbourne, or make local cultural references, as in the case of a branch in Stockholm inspired by the work of Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier.
