No wonder they're leaving
It's no wonder Lowry's Farm is leaving Singapore.
I personally have never visited the shop till I heard of their closing and the massive price cuts to be had. I visited the outlet at [email protected] and I was thoroughly disappointed by the quality, design and price of their clothes. Despite the closing down discounts their clothes were still pretty pricey. I saw a simple dress with a rather flimsy skirt going at $39.90 after a 50% discount.
That being said I think they do cater to people interested in Japanese fashion trends.
Up to 90% Off Makes It a worthwhile trip
Lowrys Farm will be withdrawing from Singapore with effect 18th February 2015 and as such, they are having a too good to be missed sale with up to 90% off on your shopping!
We decided to walk into Lowrys Farm to take a look and to check if it was true.
Indeed, most of their stuffs were MARKED down and you can get additional 20% discount if you purchase 5 items or more.
The quality of their stuffs were good, and i bought two shoes, 1 shorts and 1 shorts. My friend bought a dress. All for $120. We would have paid $400 without the sale.
They Kill Rabbits
Whenever I hear the brand Lowrys farm, the phrase “Rabbit murderers” will automatically appear in my mind. The reason to this was because of a Lowrys farm x Za cosmetics collaboration event which I attended back in 2012. Basically, this event was organized to help people learn more about makeup and how to style themselves.
Anyhow, getting to the point, what actually happened was a Lowrys farm sales representative came over to introduced their clothing line. He picked up a fur tippet and said, “They killed 10 rabbits to make this”. Everyone immediately expressed their disapproval. To stop that from continuing, the sales representative added that, that sentence was a joke. However, as the audience calmed down, I heard him muttering under his breath about not knowing how many rabbits were murdered to make that.
Ironically, the words which were supposed to be a joke got stuck in my head, causing me to shape the brand permanently. Therefore, whenever my friend dragged me in a Lowrys Farm outlet, and started molesting the nearest fur coat at sight, I would start chanting that they murder rabbits to get their fur.
On the bright side of all of this darkness, the Rabbit’s Fur Tippet is actually very soft.

Not Worth It
Lowry's Farm is quite the hype now, with the sudden burst of outlets popping up throughout Singapore. I had never heard of the brand before a friend introduced it to me and told me that they sold good clothes. Sadly, when I visited their outlets at [email protected] and Plaza Singapura, they were quite a letdown.
Fair enough, I thought their clothes were good-looking although some were pretty common and nothing too fanciful whatsoever. However, the bad part was when I looked at the price tag and found it way too expensive for my liking. I didn't think that the clothes were of superb material or quality so I think the reason for the priciness is purely due to branding, which makes shopping at Lowry's Farm not very worth it unless you find a piece that really catches your eye.
Apart from that, it was quite the pleasure to browse the items in the shop. I like that they don't squeeze hordes of clothing into the shop space and hence, there's space and breathers as you shop in there. But overall, because it is simply too expensive, I do not recommend and will not be going there to get my clothes.
prices too steep
Though I can't deny that Lowry's farms clothes are pretty damn nice, I definitely won't pay their prices for pieces of cloth i can get at other places which are better in quality. In my honest opinion, though their designs are really sweet and eye catching, the prices are way too steep for the quality.
Furthermore, their apparels are somewhat 'mainstream', such that I am able to get the exact same piece easily from other shops. That saying, not all the pieces they offer are like that, there are still one or two which do deserve a second look.
The last time I walked into Lowrys Farm, I came out empty handed. Though the wide range of country/Japanese theme clothings were oh-so-pretty, it's their very steep prices that made not only myself feel dejected, but for my wallet to silently scream for mercy if I were to get anything. Even when I popped in during the sale period, the prices were still not wallet-friendly. But who can blame them, the quality of the clothings they offer were of high standard. I have never seen a single thread or sequin out of place when inspecting their tops or pants.
I am not blessed with a good and proportionate physique, so getting their clothes that are of a free size may or may not fit me well. It is always a gamble when it comes to trying on their clothes; and finding out that it doesn't fit you in the end. Overall, I do believe that a good investment on some of their clothings will help you in the future, although I suggest you "console" and "persuade" your wallet beforehand.
pretty, high quality clothes
Lowry's Farm stocks most girly, feminine clothing items, which reflects it's Japanese roots. As I've come to expect of most Japanese brands, the quality of the clothes are better than average. Most are made of thick, durable, comfortable materials, and seem like they'll last for quite a time!
Service here is also exceptional. The staff often offer to help me bring my purchases to the changing rooms, so I can continue shopping for more clothes without my hands full.
It's a pity that some clothing items come in free size though. They're usually either a tad too big or small for my liking, and don't fit very well. I'm surprised that for this kind of price range, not everything is produced in different sizes.
Worth the investment
I've only ever bought 2 items from Lowry's Farm, and I love both to pieces. One is a pair of wide-legged pants, the other a classic white purse. Both I managed to score on sale, though the prices were still a little steep (the bag was near $60).
However, I think items from Lowry's Farm is worth the money, especially if you're looking for investment pieces. The quality is good, the designs are trendy, and sometimes you can find very timeless pieces, like the bag that I bought, that you can re-use multiple times.
So, bottom line is, be smart about what you buy at Lowry's Farm. For example, I wouldn't buy sweaters or skirts that I can find elsewhere at cheaper prices. But for things like coats ((they have a great selection), bags or shoes, things that will become a staple in your wardrobe, Lowry's Farm is a good place to try.
Lowrys Farm is yet another of the many stores in Singapore selling Japanese apparel, and like my feelings towards other such stores, Lowrys Farm to me is just… unimpressive.
It has a pleasant store layout consisting mainly of wood, giving the place a very comfortable, homely feel. The store has a men and women’s section, and I think it's great that it caters to both genders. The design of the clothes there are not bad, too. Some items have caught my eye, as they are feminine, yet trendy at the same time.
So, what then is the problem with Lowrys Farm? What’s preventing me from making my first purchase there? It’s very simple – the price. Like with all other Japanese fashion stores, I cannot justify spending over $70 on a piece of clothing. In addition, some designs that I see at Lowrys Farm are very similar to what can be found at local blogshops, so why waste the money? Also, the clothes are of just average quality, so there’s really no reason to spend so much. Unless there’s a massive sale, I really do not see myself buying anything from this store any time soon.
countryside, Japanesque feeling
LOWRYS FARM's storefront and posters caught my eye as they displayed themselves as a feminine, cute yet countryside store. Carrying both men's and women's clothes, they seem to cater to those loving the Japanese style as well as the more girly girls. Their products are all unique and hard to find elsewhere in Singapore, and the quality is good and comfortable. There are many unique designs such as pants designed with a leggings quality, and with florals, leopard prints and the ombre trend. Also, this is one store which I can fit into their pants without any trouble- due to my bigger calve muscles, and obviously I was very happy at this fact. Even their most basic tank tops are embellished tastefully with gemstones, and fit well, and the material is comfortable on the skin. (: Staff are also very helpful and do not mind running up and down to help you find your appropriate size.
However, a downside is that at the location at Plaza Singapura, staff are quite unfamiliar with where exactly a certain product is stocked, but this was not the case at the one at 313 Somerset. Also, the price range can be quite expensive, with a skirt retailing at around $40, which is too much for a student to afford. Furthermore, at the outlet at Plaza Singapura, most of the products is only stocked in sizes M and L, which is tough for the petite.
Bring your parents if you want to purchase anything here, or browse during sales, it'll be more worth it (:
