From The Straits Times    |

Our beloved Little Red Dot can be confusing territory when it comes to shopping, from the overwhelming mall mania along Orchard Road to the constant shifting and moving of our favourite brands as construction and deconstruction work calls!

To help you navigate this ever-changing sartorial map (without having to resort to the mall directory) we’ve put together a trusty guide to new openings around town and temporary relocations, so you can spend your time shopping rather than searching:
