Anyone who has wandered the sprawling jungle that is Shinjuku station in Tokyo can hardly have failed to notice Lumine, with its four large stores connecting to the station.
Now that Lumine is here in Singapore, shoppers have 17 fresh, new Japanese brands to shop for. The store, which opened on Saturday, occupies a 10,000 sq ft space in Clarke Quay Central mall and carries women’s fashion items specially curated for Singapore such as light dresses and strappy shoes for the heat. It also has a cafe where shoppers can charge their phones and enjoy fruit and yogurt parfaits.
The important question, of course, is what are the best buys in this Japanese Pandora’s box of covetable fashion. Here are some of Lumine’s must-have items for in-the-know shoppers.
