Having hit the Singapore shores in 2011, Lapalette, the Korean label, has brought a new wave of K-Fashion to the local scene. Standing as the first dedicated Korean bag and accessories concept store to debut in Singapore, Lapalette’s ethos of “art meets fashion” produces unique fashion items based on the concept of British humour.
Best-known for its signature styles such as the horse icon, the brand houses a unique range of sophisticated bags and accessories inspired by delicate hand-crafted ornaments and vintage collections such as wooden dolls and musical instruments, which are reinterpreted to inject a contemporary twist.
After its successful flagship store opening at ION Orchard in December 2011, Lapalette is available at Suntec City, Vivocity & their latest store that will be opening end of June at Tampines Mall.
Available in 29 stores across Asia, Lapalette has proven to be very popular amongst Korean pop stars and celebrities. The brand also frequently collaborates with global designer brands to create special collections.
The collections are launched seasonally with the latest Fall Winter 14’ collection featuring a wide range of product lines such as ‘MOST by Lapalette’, ‘Cupcake by Lapalette’, ‘Lapalette by Lapalette’ as well as a limited edition ‘Cupcake Corinth’ collection.

I went to their launch event – courtesy of C, who wasn’t even involved in the thingy but stayed to make sure all her guest bloggers were happy and fed! – and took a quick look at the store offerings. Quick, because my wallet was trying to escape from the confines of my cavernous bag and expel her contents like the credit card and cash.
I was so so so tempted to get a gorgeous silver PS/Alexa lookalike but… sigh. Can’t be frivolously spending. It’s only July but I’ve bought 6 brand new bags already.
The fantastic thing was, there was a live station for handmade and customized bag charms! I stayed far away for the most part of it cos the queue was incredibly long. Spent the waiting time with C, and my new friend Que (she is SOOOO adorable!) just chit-chatting. And thanks to Kiyora who fast-hand-fast-leg got me the charm that I REALLY wanted but didn’t see….
I now have a customized Lapalette furry puff thing (that my Tuppy is OBSESSED with) complete with an eagle! Major loves. And that’s not the end of it. To my surprise, the door gift very generously included a Lapalette Popping Pierrot Key Charm. Super unique and totally goes with my new Longchamp.
Can’t wait for the Tampines one to open, am gonna drag the BF there to get me a new bag!
