VivoCity Ushers in the Year of the Rabbit

I don’t have much patience for shopping and prefer to do it online, but each festive season, I enjoy looking at the creative window treatments.  If you want to feel the festive spirit and don’t want to jostle with the crowds at Chinatown, I would say come to VivoCity.  There’s a quite a festive buzz here and ‘rabbits’ everywhere.

Loved the traditional chinese paper cutting design at Marks and Spensers for the Year of the Rabbit. Simple and not garish is what appeals to me. It makes me wonder who all these window dressers are. There are some really creative ones out there.

The delicate detail.

A bit of bold red against pretty lavender is quite a new colour combination, but it works.

This window display at the Fox clothing store reminds me of the rabbit on the moon from Chinese legends. I like the brush stroke fonts.

Loved the Decor at the entrance to Tangs. The floral treatment is so pretty. Tourists and locals alike could not resist a photo op with the Tangs bunny.

I hope the National Geographic store doesn’t go out of business. It’s quite empty and I suspect it’s because the stuff here is quite expensive.

The decor here is simple, discrete and beautiful. Just a row of traditionally shaped Chinese lanterns.

Loved the Chinese style clouds at the Gap Store. I was just thinking about the Easter Bunny versus the Year of the Rabbit, Bunny. The difference here is there are no multi-coloured eggs and the rabbits are mostly red. It made me wonder if Easter bunny decor could be recycled. It looks like everything is new here though.

Another traditional looking Rabbit, but in yellow, at Timberland. A store I quite like, but I can’t afford anything from here right now.

    Oooo can you tell me how you shop online in Singapore? I haven’t really done it because none of my favorite sites deliver to SG. Which websites do you use? Do you have something similar to amazon.com?

      I dont’ shop much, but there used to be a Singapore J C Penney that since has closed. I also bought stuff from Eddie Bauer which ships internationally. It’s quite hard to find stores that ship internationally and I wanted to do a search and list all stores that do.
