Keepers is back with the exciting and locally-fuelled event to be at this weekend — Keeper’s Playground of Infinite Happiness! From 27 July to 5 August, expect fun-filled activities, delicious food, and serious splurge-worthy selections of products from local designers and artists!
With over 120 brands, artists and craftsmen participating in this 2-week-long mega event, there is so much to do (we stayed 2 hours longer than we planned). To help you navigate this amazing multi-storey extravaganza, we’ve highlighted some pit stops you won’t wanna miss!
A vibrant and unique take on our hallmark HDB flat fronts, Block Party is a massive installation that spans multiple storeys high! This piece was created through a collaborative effort from 32 local to celebrate the diversity of Singapore!
Let Me Down
Created by Yang, this immersive installation manages to turn your old playground see-saw into something out of this world. Grab a friend and snap some sunshine-soaked boomerangs this weekend!
We can’t stress enough how much we loved the signature ice-cream flavour Butterknife Folk has created for this event! The ice-cream features a mix of 3 different Yakult flavours, and trust us, you can taste the differences. There are also loads of locally-inspired treats like ice gems and chicken rice ice-cream (it really tastes like chicken rice).
Singapore’s first bean-to-bar chocolate company, Fossa chocolates serve up wildly delicious chocolates made from sustainably-sourced cacao beans! They aim to bring out the unique flavour of different cacao beans, working with unexpected fix-ins like their salted egg yolk and shrimp and bonito chocolate bar!
Andrea with designer Ling
Ling Wu creates luxury handbags which reflect a relaxed and timeless elegance, with a focus on the high-quality material and form. Designer Goh Ling Ling believes women’s lives need function and beauty, where practicality and style come hand in hand. We fell in love with the butter-soft feel of the leathers and hand-polished exotic skins, and would recommend Ling Wu’s paper-bag-style handbags as a piece to invest in!
Andrea wearing The Form’s Drape-Neck Maxi Dress
The form is a showcase of what basics should be. Comfortable, versatile and super chic, The Form’s inaugural collection offers premium quality pieces that feel as great as they look! Andrea couldn’t help herself from scoring a few pieces from the collection too so check them out while they’re there!
Andrea with founder Benny and designer Phoebe
Dubbed “The Best Travel Shoe”, Another Sole’s pieces weigh just 280 grams and are made with premium Spanish and Italian leather that is soft to the touch (definitely no blisters here!).
They come with removable sports soles that perfectly cushion your feet with every step! But what we love the most about Another Sole is that they donate 10% of their revenue to their “feed fund”, which aims to feed children, support their futures and build sustainable communities in impoverished countries!
The second instalment of Carrie K.’s Modern Heirloom Collection, Star, launches this weekend at Keepers Playground of Infinite Happiness! The collection draws inspiration from the gotong royong spirit, (a.k.a the kampong spirit), taking design cues from the Bintang Beralih (a star-shaped motif).
Star is a multi-part collection inspired by various cultural and ethnic groups of Singapore, and features versatile jewellery pieces that are stackable and can be mixed and matched across their different collections! fresh and somehow familiar this collection is,
We got so carried away checking out everything Keepers Playground of Infinite Happiness had to offer, and hope you let yourselves get lost in this playground for all ages! Follow @keeperssg or #keepersplayground for more updates!
