Chillax Market is known in Singapore for bringing together lots of little indie (often home-run brands) for outdoor markets, accompanied by lots of treats for attendees, like complimentary champers (yes, please!)… They’ve definitely taken a huge step by renting out an airy, light-filled space on the 3rd floor of The Grandstand and filling it with the best of the best boutique vendors.
Sprawling across 7,000 square feet, Chillax is a unique lifestyle proposition, including an art gallery, a beauty salon, a café serving up ethically-produced coffees and teas, and a florist – you feel like you’d quite like to make yourself at home. It’s not just about the added extras, though, the selection of vendors Chillax have brought together are pretty cool too. We picked a few of our stand-out faves to let you know what to make a beeline for!
Abi and Joseph
You can’t miss this brand as they’ve bagged a prime position right by the entrance! With their bold colours and luxe fabrics, they have high hanger appeal, rare for workout clothes. We can just see Bukit Timah’s yummy mummies doing down dogs in these babies…
These colourful Fair Trade-certified ceramics, handmade and handpainted by Vietnamese artisans, are seriously covetable.
Helmed by British florists Hollie Hodges and Jane Warner, this has instantly become Singapore’s most sophisticated florist. When we visited they were putting the final touches to some absolutely stunning bouquets – your new choice for dropping hints about to the hubby!
Pianissimo Baby & Home
The gorgeous organic cotton kids’ PJs and bed linens from Pianissimo are all hand-sewn and would make lovely gifts.
Lust-worthy leather shoes in a rainbow of colours, including glittery options for the magpies amongst us. You can even go matchy-matchy with your kids, which we adore of course. Quite pricey considering in Spain these are not uber-luxe shoes, but we’re kind of used to Singaporean mark-ups by now.
As a stalwart Sassy Mama fave, we’re thrilled this previously online-only party supplies shop now has a physical presence so we can check out the goodies in person before we buy!
Pssst… Chillax Market is not terribly well signposted currently (The Grandstand doesn’t do directions very well as we know!), so basically when you come in, head towards the elevator near Omakase Burger and ride up to the 3rd floor.
