Haji lane is in the Kampong Glam neighborhood of Singapore. Young people frequent the shop houses along this lane for the independent fashion boutiques and Middle Eastern cafes.
It’s no secret that Haji Lane has been hotter than July for more than two years, especially for fashionista hipsters and indie-label whores. And the truth is, it’s not slowing down – new boutiques spring up constantly, established ones regularly clear merchandises to make room for more, and even suburban mums flock there to get trends in order.
Haji Lane has become a meeting place for the city’s anti-mall crowd. They buy upscale vintage clothing at fanciful boutiques to the latest offerings from Singapore’s independent interior designers. The newest innovators to be found on the street are “blog shops” — retail venues that have sprouted up from shopping blogs. (Pssst! Our Lomo Embassy is only a street away from Haji Lane!)
At night young, fashionable Singaporeans window-shop, chill out and smoke hookahs at one of several relaxed Middle Eastern-style cafes.
