Very sleek and chic, Bimba and Lola is a step up from Topshop and Pull & Bear, and they offer unique, one-of-a-kind clothing that you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone else wearing on the streets.
The uniqueness of a piece of clothing is very important to me, and I abhor stepping out in a shirt to find someone else wearing the exact same piece as me. This is probably the reason why I don't visit stores like Cotton On.
Bimba and Lola provides me with unique threads to show off my personality, individuality and style. When I purchase apparel from Bimba and Lola, I just know I won't find anyone else wearing them on the streets. Since they do not enjoy the same recognition as brands like H&M and Forever 21 and their prices are slightly steeper, not many don their clothing line, which makes it perfect for me.
The quality of their products is also extremely high and worthy of the steep prices.
Great Unique Brand
Bimba and Lola is conveniently situated at Ion Orchard and you should definitely make it one of your stops when you go to Orchard to shop.
The items that they sell are unique and interesting. As compared to Topshop, Zara or Forever 21, the shoes, bags and accessories are less mainstream and don't just follow whatever is trendy for the moment. My favorite item there would have to be a pair of satin ballet flats with a really cute fabric pattern - different colored bows. The quality is also definitely a step up from Topshop or Forever 21 , the stitching on their shoes and accessories looks more professional and less hasty and their accessories and bags are made of real leather (most, I'm not sure if all are).
Having said that, you will have to pay a higher price for better quality. The prices are generally similar to the more expensive price range at Topshop or Zara, around $150 for a pair of shoes and definitely more for a real leather bag. However, when you think about it you are paying for both lasting quality and style, something that is more difficult to find in other chain stores such as Topshop.
Be sure to head to Bimba and Lola for a fresh breath of air in Singapore's rather boring fashion and shopping scene.
When I first saw this brand opening at Ion Orchard, I was rather curious as to what it was. Having never come across this ever, I was rather intrigued and excited about its opening a few years ago. The store, gave off a elegant vibe, with its slightly shaded lighting and 80s shelves. The apparels were displayed on the open-air shelves with a back spotlight and they had leather couches, for the comfort of customers to try on shoes.
The architecture of the place I must say is makes it look very much high-end. The leather products on display are also placed in glass and have to be requested to be looked at. Although it is a rather small shop I feel that it has sufficient room to draw in the avid shopaholic. With its unique soft-leather designs or apparels and accessories, it is difficult to resist the loveliness of the timeless classic pieces that Bimba and Lola has to offer.
Even at full price, the items are reasonable and affordable. The quality of the product can also be compared to the likes of kate spade, or even better. In my opinion it is very worth it for a piece of clutch of wallet that is made out completely of genuine leather, even accompanied with a gold-plated trademark.
