The World’s Coolest Neighborhoods: A Global Street Style Report – Vogue

 

In honor of Vogue September 2014’s street style news, Vogue.com presents the globe’s fifteen coolest neighborhoods for fashion and beyond.
TIONG BAHRU / SINGAPORE
Singapore has made a splash of late in the fashion sphere: Chanel showed its well-received Resort 2014 collection in the city-state, as did Prabal Gurung with his most recent fall lineup. Nary a week goes by without an Instagram of a model-off-duty alongside the Marina Bay Sands’ jaw-dropping rooftop pool. Yet past the glitz, there’s a small nook of town dubbed Tiong Bahru that’s the artisanal, coffee shop–filled foil to Singapore’s endless skyscraper sparkle. Here, low-profile Art Deco-style buildings house eclectic boutiques like Strangelets, which sells quirky design objects, and Fleas & Trees, which offers baubles from emerging designers. Feeling jet-lagged? Tuck into Nimble/Knead, a concept massage parlor providing relaxation in a common Singaporean sight: corrugated shipping containers.
