BEYOND THE VINES OPENS NEW STORE AT MANDARIN GALLERY

Singapore womenswear label Beyond The Vines has gone from a pop-up store at Mandarin Gallery to a permanent space in the mall (above).

Opened last Friday, the 650 sq ft space features a modern and elegant interior with brushed brass clothing rails, pink fabric wall panels and a white quartz countertop. A nature theme runs through the boutique's design: There is a real tree in the middle of the store and botanical installations by Singaporean artist Charles Loh for the window displays.

The one-year-old label, founded by couple Daniel Chew and Rebecca Ting, is known for its chic and minimalist dresses, separates and jumpsuits. The brand's current collection, Pre-fall 2016, is available at the store and prices range from $59 for a sleeveless polyester top to $89 for a wide-leg crepe jumpsuit or maxi dress.

The new Beyond The Vines store is located at Mandarin Gallery, 333 Orchard Road, 02-21, tel: 6871- 8755, open: 11am to 9pm daily.


THE SHOPPES AT MARINA BAY SANDS' NEW PERSONAL SHOPPING SERVICE

The service, which launched on Tuesday, offers shoppers a private shopping experience which encompasses a range of luxury boutiques such as Bottega Veneta and Burberry at The Shoppes.

Unlike other such services where there is only one stylist advising the shopper, this one will have stylists from individual brands pre-select items for customers to try on in-store, based on their budget and style preferences. Shoppers will be accompanied by a dedicated chaperone and can opt for a VIP buggy service to shuttle them between boutiques.

They will be treated to a complimentary TWG Tea high tea session after shopping and receive a $250 shopping voucher with a minimum $1,000 spending.

The three-hour private shopping service costs $250 a session. Bookings for the service can be made at www.marinabaysands.com/personalshopping.

The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is at 10 Bayfront Avenue, open 10.30am to 11pm (Sunday to Thursday and public holiday), 10.30am to 11.30pm (Friday, Saturday and eve of public holiday), tel: 6688-6888.


ESTELLE & THILD BODY SCRUB AND LOTION FOR RADIANT SKIN

Organic skincare brand Estelle & Thild has launched a body scrub and lotion that the label says are the perfect pairing to achieve glowing skin.

The scrub (below) contains shea butter to nourish the skin and granulated sugar to gently buff away dry skin. The food-grade sugar melts in warm water. This softens the particles so that they do not scratch the skin.

The lotion (above) includes hydrating ingredients such as aloe vera leaf juice and jojoba oil.

Both products are available in two scents, Spring Rose Blonde and Fresh Water Lily.

The Estelle & Thild Body Scrub ($39) and Estelle & Thild Body Lotion ($35) are available at all Sephora stores and online at sephora.sg.
