In November, I swung by Bynd Artisan, a retail shop and atelier, way out in Boon Lay. On Saturday, I visited Bynd Artisan’s second atelier in swanky Holland Village.
Winnie Chan, the business’ third generation owner, created Bynd Artisan and launched with a luxury line of stationery. Bynd Artisan ready-to-write collection, a “lifestyle” brand, includes leather-bound journals and leather-crafted office and desk accessories (binders, tablet cases, luggage tags, business card sleeves, etc.).
On display (and for sale) in Holland V. were items from Bynd Artisan‘s newest collaborations—with fashion designer Priscilla Shunmugam and calligrapher Joanne Sim.
The Ong Shunmugam x Bynd Artisan capsule collection—nine clutches in two different styles—was just gorgeous! The leather-lined accessories are made with exquisite fabrics are from Shunmugam’s personal collection from Japan, South Korea, India, China, Cambodia, and Indonesia. The clutches cost SG$680 each—which, OMG!—but are so worth gawking at.
Much more affordable was stationery from The Letter J Supply x Bynd Artisan collection. The Letter J Supply‘s founder, Lim, founded her company in January 2014. A designer by trade, she studied calligraphy in New York City. Most recently, she established a full-time studio on Somerset Road.
