One of Singapore’s top accessories labels, LingWu is back in business at its bricks’ n’ mortar space LeSalon by Ling at Chip Bee Gardens.
As a sustainable retail and design-focused designer for her eponymous brand, Ling Wu has a reputation for creating considered, timeless designs for bags and other accessories. This focus will be echoed in the selected range of Asian fashion, jewellery, art and design brands that will be featured in the newly updated space.
The retail space is unique with its stylish echo of Ling’s own home, from a practical studio for design work, LeSalon became a meeting place for customers, friends and creative colleagues.
“We describe it as a special place where visitors can be inspired and build on each other’s creativity,” says Ling.
“[It’s] a place where the door is always open as we host inspiring design launches, film screenings and gatherings for our very close creative family and friends.”
A Dose of Something Good is a Singapore cult brand that’s beloved for its hand-poured scented candles set in creative ceramic containers. Established in 2011 by Robert Upton, the brand uses natural fibre wicks and natural extracts and essential oils for its scent.
Tsura Fine Jewellery by designer Tara Thadani was launched in 2009, as a way for Thadani to combine her love of accessories with her personal taste. The brand combines Thadani’s Indian heritage with her peripatetic life living in Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK and the US. There are two main lines of jewellery, including Tsura in sterling silver, and Illuminate in 18K gold which includes crystals and stones, making the most of their traditional properties.
