Using a distinctive visual and verbal language, the library integrates unique experience to make a creative space accessible for both creatives and the general community.
What to wear
Leinné's signature Bucket Cabas raffia bag is made with playful classic codes that elevate it to the status of a precious summer bag. The natural facade and lovely bucket shape is enhanced with Paper moon tag in bright color and Helly jade bag charm. Add some delight with Bistro shell chain that can be worn as a mask chain and a glasses strap.
Even if you’re not too much of a book lover, library@orchard deserves a place in your Singapore bucket list. The quietness there is both inviting and comforting, which allows you a virtual escape. You’ll find yourself a part of a learning community, sitting together in the same roof and yet everyone is a single universe, entranced in their own world. Being surrounded by a variety of stories is a calming influence that only libraries can offer.
