Think you know every mall and shop on Orchard Road? Think again. Affectionately known as Palais (pronounced “Pa-lay”), Palais Renaissance houses some of the most exclusive brands and luxury boutiques frequented by the most discerning and influential individuals. Here’s why they do, and why you should too.
Whether you’re looking for a statement gown or everyday luxury staples, Palais Renaissance’s selection of stores are sure to satisfy your sartorial needs. Head to L’ecrin Boutique Singapore and Belle and Tulle Bridal for covetable Hermès bags and glamorous dresses, and swing by Maria Grachvogel for classic wardrobe must-haves. Having dressed celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Kelly Rowland, you can count on Maria Grachvogel’s designs to empower women with confidence and elegance. Be it a statement jumpsuit to take you from the boardroom to the bar, or a top-and-pants combination cut from the most refined fabrics, get ready to rule the world in Grachvogel’s effortlessly stylish separates. Gentlemen can also head to Raffles Tailor to have suits made by their team of London-trained tailors, before kicking back with a dram of whisky at The Writing Club, a posh and cosy 33-seater establishment, home to over 500 hand-picked labels of rare and collectible whiskies.
Let’s not forget self-care and beauty essentials. Palais has a whole host of beauty offerings, some from even the most unlikely of places. PS.Cafe now offers signature fine soaps in three distinct and decadent scents. The soaps aren’t just aesthetically pleasing, but are formulated with botanical extracts to nourish the skin. You’ll love them more when guests see them sitting stylishly on your bathroom sink. After all, your home is an extension of your aesthetic and a well-dressed woman naturally has a home with the same ethos too. From artisanal handicrafts, to silk-printed ikat cushions and decorative scented candles, Strange & Deranged has everything you need for a thoughtfully furnished abode.
While your clothing is key, the finishing touches are as important too (if not more). Choose from an array of handcrafted fine jewellery from DeFRED Jewellers or Yuli Inc. – Fine Jewellery, or a covetable timepiece from Breitling. Since their inception in 1984, DeFRED prides itself on its personalised services, bespoke designs and unblemished quality. Not only will you be dazzled by the sea of gemstones at DeFRED Jewellers, you’ll also be moved by the staff’s sincerity to create a trinket your heart desires.
Step through Yuli Inc – Fine Jewellery’s gilded doors and you’ll find yourself in an intimate ambience where you can seek personalised advice before purchasing any fine jewellery or precious gems. Be it an extravagant number made specially for a gala dinner, or a timeless heirloom piece to be cherished for generations to come, Yuli Inc takes every process and detail into consideration. Perfect as a gift for a special someone, or a little something for yourself—Breitling is your go-to for well-appointed timepieces. Having had a longstanding relationship with aviation, an industry where precision is key, Breitling is known for its technical developments, manufacturing and quality. From its movements, to the dial, hands and bracelets, every Breitling watch is a highly sophisticated instrument made for those who appreciate it. Our pick? The top-of-the-line Navitimer 8 B01 which is equipped with their in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, delivering COSC-certified chronometer precision and a 70-hour power reserve.
Need to freshen up and be rid of all your stress and worries? Fret not, Palais has you covered. Treat yourself to The CALECIM® Effect at Privé Aesthetics for younger and healthier skin, or Renaza Nail Spa for a relaxing manicure session with the girls. Don’t forget about those locks! Head to H’AIR – Trichology by Leonica K for customised hair and scalp treatments, where the team aims to maintain and boost your hair’s health and lustre with their in-house formulated hair care range and trichological systems.
