After an eight-year residency at the National Design Centre, Carrie K moves into a new home this month, located at 77B Neil Road. The Singapore-based jewellery brand founded by Carolyn Kan now takes up the third floor and mezzanine of the heritage building, which was part of the first conservation project from the 1980s–90s, and the entire 1,900-sqft space is divided among a showroom, workshop, office, and bar, plus a cozy VIP lounge with sloping ceilings for client consultations on bespoke jewellery.
The calming, intimate interiors of the new Carrie K boutique are designed by stylist and decorator Priscilla Tan, better known as @StyledByPT on Instagram, and the plush, homey space is an elegant backdrop for Carrie K’s fine jewellery, which spans statement pieces and items for day-to-day wear. Among the display areas in the boutique is the Jewel Bar of Wearable Wishes, featuring designs based on patterns and auspicious symbols in Asian culture, such as songket motifs, lotus flowers, and the five-bats emblem. The customisable and transformable necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings feature gemstones such as jade, pearls and pink sapphires, and modular construction and elements.
