Where? In Forum - a hip shopping mall along Singapore's famed Orchard Road, a long, tree-lined street boasting numerous shopping centres, restaurants, luxury hotels and bars.
Who? Blackjack, which specialises in urban street wear and up-and-coming labels, was opened by luxury retailer Club 21 as a young and edgy counterpart to its luxury boutiques. Club 21 has been responsible for bringing designer labels from around the world to Singapore since the company was launched 35 years ago.
Fashion finds: look for men's and women's clothing, accessories and shoes from labels such as Y-3, Maharishi, Ksubi, Luella, Orla Kiely, Nice Collective, MHI, Future Classics, Tsumori Chisato, Mint, Splendid, Generra, Cabane de Zucca, RBC and Da Nang. It has an extensive range of denim from labels such as Paper Denim & Cloth, Sacred Blue, Earnest Sewn, Seven, Rogan, Citizens of Humanity, Jean Jewel, Joe's Jeans and more.
The vibe: orange from top to bottom, the super futuristic space was designed by interior architect Albano Daminato and features clothing suspended from oval, brushed-aluminium fixtures and showcased on long counters. Atmospheric spotlights add a slightly campy feel to the space.
The crowd: hipsters looking for style and comfort.
Blackjack is at 01-10, Forum The Shopping Mall, 583 Orchard Road, Singapore, tel: 65 6735 0975.
