NEW SKECHERS FLAGSHIP STORE AT NGEE ANN CITY, SINGAPORE
Come 26 June 2015, SKECHERS Singapore is set to open their new flagship store to the public at Ngee Ann City, #B2-04. The new 1,700sqf space in Singapore is the first Asian flagship store to embrace an industrial and modern concept, accompanied by a touch of vintage elements.
The store entrance is framed by a brick wall to give a raw industrial edge that is juxtaposed by the modern inviting interior. Utilizing silver metal supports with exposed welds and fasteners, the store space is given a constructed and contemporary look. Reclaimed natural wood is used to inject warm accents to the overall space, as well as segmenting the collections. On top of that, the new flagship uses LED backlit technology to establish a “mixed-bag” vernacular, a technique widely practiced amongst today’s leading interior architects.
Besides the well-planned Lifestyle and Performance footwear categories catered for men and women, the new flagship store also has a dedicated area for kids products, where multi- coloured LED technology is used to illuminate glass-etched SKECHERS cartoon characters to attract children to browse at the different levels of products. Soft furnishings, such as seating that is built to look like a “roller coaster” and a large Gachapon machine dispensing toys, are elements that are incorporated to enhance the ambience of fun and colour in the kids section.
