Come November, lovers of anything and everything about Japan will be able to enjoy a new shopping and cafe experience at Clarke Quay Central mall.

Popular Japanese fashion mall LUMINE is set to occupy 10,000 square feet on the second floor of Clarke Quay Central when it opens on 25 November, and will feature a retail space as well as the first LUMINE Café.

The retail space, the first overseas store for LUMINE, will feature 20 different Japanese fashion brands, including popular labels such as TOMORROWLAND, FRAY I.D., shoes and accessories brands Le Talon, roomsSHOP and eyewear brand Zoff. Items are priced in the range of $15 to $850.

There will also be a new concept space called the LUMINE LAB, where up-and-coming Japanese brands will be featured. The first collection of brands to be featured in LUMINE LAB are influencer-based ones such as EMODA, MURUA, MERCURYDUO, rienda and And Couture.

Naokazu Kozakai, managing director of LUMINE Singapore, said the space was a “testbed” for Japanese brands, and “aims to share and explore the diversity in Japanese fashion and craftsmanship to Singapore with a vision to create a new fashion culture in Singapore”.

This will the first LUMINE store to open outside of Japan, and is expected to replicate the shopping experience found in LUMINE’s 16 branches in Japanese districts such as Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Yurakucho, but on a smaller scale.
