The date for Funan’s reopening has been dropped: June 28. After three years of redevelopment works, the mall is set to open with over 180 brands calling it home, including more than 60 percent from Singapore.
You’ve got artisan jeweler Carrie K’s standalone boutique, fashion favorite Love, Bonito’s largest outlet in the country, socially conscious footwear brand Another Sole’s first menswear collection, and brick-and-mortar debuts by online platforms like apparel retailer All Would Envy and confectionery Nasty Cookie.
Plus, Papa Palheta, the folks behind Chye Seng Huat Hardware, is launching Singapore’s first “employee store”: PPP Coffee. Sinpopo Brand and its locally-flavored treats are making an appearance in the mall as well, alongside furniture store Grafunkt’s first bistro.
For more dining options, Spa Esprit’s first Japanese restaurant Noka is leaning towards farm-to-table cuisine, with greens grabbed straight from the urban farm operated by Edible Garden City on the rooftop space. You can also get modern Peranakan bites and Peranakan-inspired cocktails from new concept Godmama.
Other fresh highlights include Dyson’s first standalone store and beauty-only concept in the country (it’ll be dedicated to products like the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and the Dyson Airwrap styler); British folding bike brand Brompton Junction’s Southeast Asian flagship space (with a Lion City special edition); and Golden Village’s seven-screen cinema with two new seat varieties: Deluxe Plus and Gold Class Express.
Also look out for local theater group Wild Rice’s studio, a digital shopping experience at FairPrice Finest, a digital ordering system at Kopitech (run by food court operator Kopitiam), and a flagship TFX fitness center run by True Group, featuring a swimming pool and an outdoor deck.
At the design centrepiece that is the Tree of Life, you’ll find tech brands like Atlas Experience and audio-technica, as well as Tech360.tv, which offers a first look at gadget reviews. There’s also a pop-up space that can hold workshops and other programs, and two Kombi vans housing food truck The Travelling C.O.W. and Taiwanese bubble tea brand Milksha.
Names like Lenovo, Courts, and GamePro Shop will return to the mall too, along with the first Dji store in Singapore for drone enthusiasts.
