You can’t miss the cheery yellow facade at 1 Teck Lim Road at the Kreta Ayer area. American fashion house Coach has taken over the space at a conservation shophouse with its first-ever concept store in Singapore.
Tomorrow’s Vintage — that’s the name of the pop-up concept — honours the brand’s 80th anniversary and commitment to restoring, repurposing, and reimagining. The ware on display includes bags from Coach’s archival collection: the Ergo and the Cashin from Coach’s first designer Bonnie Cashin. There are also vintage television sets showing the evolution of Coach’s stores over the years as well as films featuring the American label’s leather restoration specialist Debi the Restorer.
That’s not all. You can also shop from a selection of re-released Coach Originals bags and have them customised. Local artist Tiffany Lovage will be at the pop-up on August 21 and 22, as well as September 3 — 5. On August 27 — 29 and September 10 — 12, embroidery specialist Zoey Wong of Naked Woods will be there to personalise your purchase.
If you’re feeling lucky, try your hand at Tikam Tikam, where you get to pick a random number from the Tikam board and stand a chance to win Coach create pins or patch, while revelling in a special playlist curated by Brooklyn-based independent record label Big Crown Records
The pop-up Coach concept store runs from now till Sep 12.
Address: 1 Teck Lim Road
Opening hours: 12pm to 9pm. Closed on Mondays.
