Get ready to experience the coolest club our island has ever seen! We previously reported that the Hermès Carré Club launched in New York, and now, the pop-up is finally making its stop in Singapore. Centred around the iconic Hermès carré (that’s the House’s silk scarves), the pop-up celebrates the different forms of the carré: From the instantly recognisable silk squares, to the elegant Twilly and the most recently launched Twillon style.
The pop-up promises a “backdrop that alternately conjures up a gentleman’s club, an artist’s workshop, or a private clubhouse” and will include nine components that are whimsically themed, with some even drawing on local creatives.

Guests will start the Carré Click and Check, where they will receive a membership card to keep and to take a photobooth portrait that comes with its own customised filters and graphics. Next, enter the Carré Studio, an atelier that will host creatives including Gianpaolo Pagni, Ugo Gattoni & Jean-Simon Roch, Alice Shirley, Keng Saw, Octave Marsal & Théo de Gueltzl, and Singapore artist-embroiderer Izziyana Suhaimi to create carré designs in real time.
The Carré Cut is up next, where makeovers and manicures are the order of the day. The draw? Manicures will be offered in carré colours, so you can match your nails to your scarf. Chic! After that, head on over to the Carré Cafe run by Singaporean food stylist, photographer and barista, CR Tan. With Tan at the helm you can not only be assured of the Instagrammability of the food, but also of its menu, which promises tantalising Southeast Asian flavours. It will also play host to “cabaret-inspired entertainment such as literary readings, retro arcade games” and more.
Coming up in quick order are Carré Stories, a retro style telephone booth where guests can listen to recorded messages, Carré-OK (bound to be a sure hit with the Singaporean crowd), where you can belt out your favourite tunes, and Carré Disco, a partygoer’s paradise where guests can party the night away under a sparkling square disco ball. Skater boys and girls will also be thrilled to know that they can show off their tricks at the Carré Park, a skate ramp that will be covered in iconic carré designs.
