A thorough disappointment for a French brand
I was doing some last minute shopping for a trip to New York in early summer. I went around hunting for jeans and settled for an affordable pair from cache cache. It wasn't cheap, it was about $40. I have always thought that cache cache was a French brand (probably due to the way they marketed themselves) and hence certain expectations formed with regards to the quality of the products. I was deeply disappointed.
After the first wash, the quality of the material (or rather lack thereof) began to show as the jeans expanded by a size and there were random threads coming out. Checking the tag revealed that the pair was probably from a Chinese distributor as there were Chinese words on it. I never wore the jeans again. With that same amount of money I could have been better off buying a pair from Bugis at a lower price and maybe even of a better quality.
Cache Cache offers a variety of different clothes, in vastly different styles. Rock chicks, preppy girls and girly girls can all find something that suits their respective styles in the store.
Their clothes are decent enough, and the quality is fine. However, there is nothing really impressive there. Purchasing the apparel there is an experience more like a 'meh shrug I'll take it' than a 'OMG I have to have that!'.
That being said though, Cache Cache is definitely worth a visit sometime, if you have the time. They do have some wardrobe essentials, and their stuff is usually pretty cute, although they generally have nothing swoon-worthy.
There are perpetual sales at Cache Cache though, which makes the retailer perfect for bargain hunters.
Nice dresses but where's the staff?
I actually like the designs of the dresses from Cache Cache. In fact, this was the place where I helped my friend choose a sparkly and resplendent looking dress for prom. She herself also knew it was ''the dress" and decided to buy it after scrutinizing every shop for a perfect outfit.
The dress was $45.90, slightly above budget for my friend. But still, it was cheaper than other gorgeous looking dresses where prices can be at least $70.
I feel that the staff are always missing in action though. There is no one to help out when we needed the fitting room and we weren't sure what to do with the clothes after we tried them. There was only one cashier at the counter from what I saw. She's pretty friendly at least.
Expensive, better to wait for sales.
Cache Cache sells casual clothing and has a very bright and lively atmosphere to it. However, it always seems as if the branches are in the state of closing down because they are always having extreme sales.
There used to be a branch at Tampines One which has since closed down and I bought some clothing from there for about $10 or so each. The regular price of clothings in Cache Cache is about $10 for simple spaghetti tops and plain shirts to $50 for dresses and shorts. Considering that I bought a top with a design and a dress for $10 each, I feel that you should wait for sales to buy their items. The prices of their regular items are quite high and the designs are not that special. If you are just looking for simple, wearable daily clothing, Cache Cache is the place to go.
The shop staff were not very helpful at the branch I visited, however, this probably varies from branch to branch. When I wanted to use the changing room, the girl simply grabbed my clothes, took away the hanger and shoved them back to me. She was probably in a rush because there was a huge sale and the queue was long.
Overall, I do like their clothings but I feel they are only worth buying during sales.
and expensive. Seriously, this see through material for 1/2 a hundred bucks?! You must be kidding me.
The clothings are in fashion, though the quality does not justify the prices they tag onto the clothes. Even their shoes, I can get a similar one at 2/3 the price elsewhere. And I don't think their brand is very high-end to call such prices.
Only get their clothes on a sale, if not, just window-shop.
I used to frequent Cache Cache quite often, in the hopes of finding something good from their countless sales. However, my visits to Cache Cache have been quite disappointing, and I have always left the store empty handed.
The store is almost always crowded, due to the sales at Cache Cache that seem to go on forever. Perhaps that is why the store can be extremely messy at times, with the staff having to attend to the jostling crowd that they hardly have time to pick up stray clothing on the floor.
The prices of the clothing can be really affordable as there are several sales, though lacking in terms of quality, as the fabric of the shirts can be quite thin and flimsy. I wouldn't recommend buying any stuff from Cache Cache when there are no sales though; the quality of the clothings definitely aren't worth the pre-sales prices.
The clothings can be a little hit or miss, depending on the style that you go for. I often see young adults buying stuff from Cache Cache, so I suppose Cache Cache does have its redeeming factors, though it's just not my cup of tea.
Not my cup of tea.
I visited Cache Cache only once at their outlet at Tampines 1. The fact that I've said that I only visited it once should give you an idea of where this review's going.
Eternally on sale, I was curious as to what kinda clothes that had to offer. Turns out I've seen their range of clothes in so many other clothing stores before, like F21. I found the clothing a bit too "young"ish for my taste, it's probably the kinda store that caters to many teenage girls I guess.
I got bored real quick and after browsing through the whole store, I was out after barely 20 minutes.
Cache cache cannot function unless they're on sales
I have never seen them not on sale.
Cache cache is permanently hanging "20% off only for this week" signboards all over the place. if ever one day cache cache gets shortlisted to be the Time Keeper of our generation, we'd all be happy folks. Cache cache mistakes months for weeks and their sales run on forever. I don't think I've ever seen the signboard down. It probably is nailed down, it'll collapse only when Clementi Mall itself collapses.
Cache cache has many pretty clothes and they're pretty much Cotton On, Forever 21 and Topshop all mixed into one, with price of the reminiscent This Fashion. Everything is really affordable, it's just not worth it enough for the item.
I have walked away from more cache cache sales than I can count, always disappointed that they have no stocked up.
Till the next sales.
Always on Sale!
Cache Cache is always on sale! I visited it 2-3 times and the clothes are always on 70% off which makes it really affordable ($10-30). However, I find the style of clothes to be limited and I think that they are for a younger crowd (maybe girls in their teens?).
Also, I don't think shopping in Cache Cache is a good experience with its narrow rows. With clothes going on sale at this price, there are usually crowds and the last time I was there I walked out after 2 minutes. If I'm not wrong, the outlet at ion has also recently closed down - and it's no surprise why.
Annoying browsing experience
Cache Cache is one of the shops I avoid, except the first time when I gave it the benefit of doubt. The clothes here definitely for teenagers only, nothing I see professional ladies wearing on casual outings. Let's just say the kind of stuff you find here is not unlike what you get in Forever 21.
During my last visit, only two items caught my eye. Unfortunately, the clothes were ill-fitting for me, perhaps because it's an European brand geared to European body figures. I don't know if they adapted to the Asian market when they opened here.
I don't know if it's still the case, but last time I went, there was also an annoying ad that was playing on loop in the store. The repeated "cache-cache!" in the background made the browsing experience unpleasant. I hope they've removed it since.
