Named for the Latin word “Nauticus” for ship, the Nautica logo became a spinnaker, a timeless symbol of adventure and exploration. Today, the world of Nautica represents both a rediscovery and a reinterpretation of what Americans have always wanted to wear.

“Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered”. The name Armani has been synonymous with unrivaled Italian style all over the world for over 30 years. Perhaps best known for revolutionizing fashion with his unstructured jacket in the Eighties, Giorgio Armani has continued to define the well dressed ever since.
The brand was established in Milan in 1975 and through it's clear stylistic vision, coupled with a deep understanding of the client’s need, became instantly popular with the discerning Italian fashion savvy.
They went on to collaborate with the Hollywood movie industry, bringing the brand worldwide acclaim. Giorgio Armani subsequently saw himself become a household name after his clothes appeared on Richard Gere in the iconic 1980 movie American Gigolo and he has remained one of Hollywood’s favorite designers ever since.
In 1981 the young line Emporio Armani was introduced - today Giorgio Armani’s flawless style has branched off into a range of collections from the Haute Couture line Armani Privé, to the casual approach of Armani Jeans. An understated sense of chic and excellent craftsmanship are the common threads that bind the Armani World together. Over the years, the label has further expanded into cosmetics, furniture design and - since 2005 - into signature Hotels and Resorts.
The new store will be modelled after their concept store in Japan, with a lighter natural colour palette and interior finishing comprising mainly of hand-hewn timber for more of a rustic character.

J's restaurant represents a celebration of the joy of life spent amongst beloved friends and family dining in great ambience, sharing delicious food at value-for-money prices, where great food is served with Joy.
Both a visual feast for the eyes and an experience for the taste buds, the food of J's is sure not to disappoint. Whilst still retaining the Latin-American influence of the food, evidenced with the staple favourites from days past of Paella, Quesadillas and Fajitas, J's new signature dishes bring out the complex identity of a more modern European cuisine.
The signature dishes of Chicken "Adobo" and the 120-day grain-fed sirloin of beef allow you to partake of your favourite meats delicately prepared to tease and please your palate.
The dining pleasure is completed by a mouth-watering dessert menu with the ever-popular "Bocas Negras" flourless chocolate cake and the "Peppered Pineapple" which elicits a spiciness to complement the sweet.
The menu caters for Vegetarians and eliminating all pork and alcohol from the restaurant allows Muslims to enjoy a range of food not readily found in Singapore.

Omakase Burger offers cheeseburgers, chicken burgers, fries, beer and more. Bringing you an authentic American burger experience.
The spirit of "Omakase" is to entrust. It is the age-old Japanese sushi-bar tradition of entrusting the chef with creating a most memorable meal with the best he has to offer. Their food philosophy is simple: to serve simple quality food. They are committed to quality and innovation, offering you the best of what will soon become your favourite burger.
When it comes to beef, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Each individual cut, be it the decadent ribeye, succulent sirloin, rich flank, or flavourful tenderloin, has its own distinguishing texture and mouth-watering flavour. Just like how many of the world’s best wines are a blend of different grape varieties, a beef patty made from a blend of different cuts of the cow combines the unique flavour signatures of each cut to deliver deeper taste and eye-opening flavour with each bite. That’s the Omakase difference.
Soft, chewy, complementary, these are the attributes they look for in their bun. Their specially-designed artisanal bun allows the meat to take centre stage while remaining solid enough to absorb the juices of their burger without falling apart.
Their cheese melts like butter on contact when the sizzling patties come off the grill. Their fries are made from the highest-grade 100% trans-fat free USA potatoes available in Asia.
From their family-friendly "squeeze-your-own" orange juicer to old classics and rarely seen craft beers, there is a drink for everyone.

Sandwich, using their house cured bacon with fried egg, lettuce and tomato.

Converse is an American shoe company that has been making shoes, lifestyle fashion and athletic apparel since the early 20th century.
In his late 30s, Marquis Mills Converse, who was previously a respected manager at a footwear manufacturing firm, opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts in February 1908.

When the U.S. entered World War II in 1941, Converse shifted production to manufacturing rubberized footwear, outerwear and protective suits for the military. Widely popular during the 1950s and 1960s, Converse promoted a distinctly American image with its Converse Yearbook. The Artist Charles Kerins created cover art that celebrated Converse's role in the lives of high school and college athletes.
Nowadays Converse makes sneakers and clothes for individuals everywhere who live creatively, optimistically and rebelliously. They exist to provoke, inspire and go along with them, whether that’s on a court, the green or the concrete, in a club, a studio or anywhere else.

His love of the great outdoors inspired him to begin Abercrombie and Co., a shop dedicated to selling only the highest quality camping, fishing and hunting gear. One of his most loyal customers was Ezra Fitch.
Ezra Fitch was a successful lawyer in Kingston, New York. Restless and thoroughly bored with his profession, Fitch spent his free time trekking the slopes of the Adirondacks.
In 1900, Fitch convinced David Abercrombie to let him buy into partnership in the business. By 1904, the shop which was now located at 314 Broadway, was incorporated, and the name was officially changed to Abercrombie & Fitch. David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch were stubborn, hot-tempered men, and they had vastly different views about the future of their business. Abercrombie was more conservative and content to continue the store as it was. However, Fitch was more of a visionary. Inevitably, the partnership dissolved, and David Abercrombie resigned in 1907. In the meantime, the store continued to expand. Ezra Fitch was a determined innovator – the phrase “It can’t be done” was not a part of his vocabulary.
In 1913, the store moved again, this time to a more fashionable and easily accessible midtown address just off 5th Avenue. Inventory was expanded and A&F became the first store in New York to supply rugged outdoor clothing for women.
In 1917, Abercrombie & Fitch moved again, this time to Madison Avenue and 45th Street, where it occupied an entire 12-story building. The sign outside the new location said, “Where the Blazed Trail Crosses the Boulevard.”
In 1928, Ezra Fitch retired, but Abercrombie & Fitch continued to grow.
In May 1996, Abercrombie & Fitch became a fully independent, publicly traded company and thrive as one of the fastest-growing merchants of the highest quality men’s and women’s casual clothing in America.
In 1998, Abercrombie opened and followed the rich Abercrombie & Fitch heritage by offering the same high quality clothing and one-of-a-kind brand experience.

PorterHouse ups the ante on steakhouses with its charcoal grilled beef steaks seared with South American flavors.
A pair of converted shophouses in Killiney Road may be an improbable location for a genuine taste of South America but then again, these are pretty crazy times for Singapore's fast-changing approach to multi-national cuisines.
The restaurant represents a change in concept by the owners, who had previously opened a short-lived Italian eatery helmed by Angelo Sanelli.
Rodriguez, who hails from Cordoba in Argentina leads the concept for PorterHouse with a wide variety of steaks with a distinctly South American character.
There are a few signature items to the menu at PorterHouse but perhaps most indicative of the South American theme at the restaurant is ceviche, a popular seafood starter comprising the freshest raw fish and other ingredients marinated in citrus juices and spiced up with cut chilli. It may not be a well-known dish in these parts but it is a refreshing starter and works very well in a tropical climate.
There are a couple of versions at PorterHouse, including a classic Peruvian-style ceviche of diced kingfish, squid and scallops marinated in lime juice and fish stock and tiradito, which is essentially the same thing except the fish is sliced sashimi-style rather than cubed - it reflects the influence of Japanese immigrants on Peruvian cuisine.
An even less-known dish is humita - a dish that involves grated corn and pumpkin stewed in milk and mixed in with a spicy onion sauce, served on a bed of mild cheese to give it a bit more texture. This common dish hails from the cooler climes of the mountainous Andes region and is slightly on the heavy side so even though it is eaten as a main course in Argentina, it perhaps works better here as a starter here.
Hungry guests, should definitely consider ordering the asado - an outstanding 1.2kg slab of Australian Angus short rib, grilled to perfection and served on the bone with grilled cherry tomatoes, a side of mash (or vegetable dish) and chimichurri, which is the vinegar, herb and garlic sauce that is standard at any South American barbecue. The beef, seasoned with roasted garlic paste and cooked at 300 C for just 45 minutes on the restaurant's special charcoal grill, is tender, juicy and jam packed with flavour.
PorterHouse is a simple neighbourhood bistro that dares to be a little different by broadening its culinary reach beyond the typical steakhouse - thanks to an authentic South American touch.
