Introducing Modajar


It’s another big win for Singaporean fashion entrepreneurs! I first discovered Modajar, a luxury boutique here in Singapore recently and have been stalking their online shop ever since, especially since they house some really cool cult brands that you can’t find elsewhere in Singapore. Origami Jewellery (my favorite!), House of Holland and Patrizia Pepe are some of the brands you’ll find at the store.


While Modajar is a physical shop (isn’t it gorgeous?!) – you know me, I’m all about online shopping! Their online website is easy to use and everything is photographed perfectly – my items arrived exactly how they were presented online. (They also do international shipping by the way). As you can see – I got a cool brick print tee from One.T.Shirt, a go-with-everything basic top from Patricia Peze; and my favorite, an Origami Jewellery necklace. I was deciding between the elephant and the dinosaur (love them both), but chose the dinosaur as they were my first loves! At 4 years old I saw Jurassic park and I have loved dinos ever since. Isn’t he beautiful? I named him Larry. ;)


Modajar launched earlier this year in July, with specially handpicked and sourced straight from the designers, resulting in a truly bold yet sophisticated shop. Oh, and before you think Modajar is just for women, don’t worry men, there are plenty of choices for you too. Modajar is set to cater to the fashion-forward man and women who loves uniqueness and a bit of “out there” style. I can only vouch for their online shop so far but as I mentioned, I enjoyed my experience shopping with Modajar. Other than the user friendly site, the delivery was pretty quick and in a sturdy, pretty Modajar box. I also have to say that I’ve been in touch with the people at Modajar and they are simply the friendliest, most helpful staff (shoutout to Shanti).


So please check out Modajar – whether in their shop (Westgate, 3 Gateway Drive #01-43) or online here. Also, they are currently doing a Modajar customer subscription drive (until Dec 17th, you have a week!) where 2 lucky subscribers will win an exclusive House of Holland patent leather tortoiseshell cap.

    OMG Larry is ADORABLE! Got to love dinosaurs (we are total twins, I’m not surprised we both love dinosaurs but it’s nice finding these things out!) and I love the origami style as well (how can I not, haha).

    By the way, now that I am back in the blogging swing I have to say I have missed your posts and have been reading a whole lot of them…if you know what I mean…or maybe you won’t know but I can’t really clarify so maybe you will never know…

    Love you!

    I came across your site by your yearly list for cruelty free beauty products. It is great you are so conscious of the choices you are making and providing resources to others. However, on the topic of the cashmere sweater, do you know if modajar brands/suppliers are cruelty free? Most animals that are used for their fur/hair are also going through unnecessary cruelty. Just a thought.

      Hey Devon, I apologize for the late reply. I must admit I didn’t know much about cashmere – I assumed it was just shaved off like wool from sheep. However I researched after your comment and this is the first and last cashmere thing I will own, so thanks so much for that. I’ll also removing the comment I made about the top in the post. I don’t know if that top’s brand is cruelty-free but either way I won’t buy anymore cashmere, I am too disgusted. I’m now also reading about sheep wool, and I’m appalled as well. I just don’t get why there is unnecessary cruelty?! I’ve always avoided animal fur (even “faux fur” because I heard that some of them are secretly real fur) but I always thought wool was in the OK category because it was just shaved off – never again. Again, thanks so much for letting me know.
