What She Wants: This New Singapore-Based Brand Has Cool Minimalist Pieces That Every Woman in Your Life Will Adore
Once in a while, a 'minimalist’ brand comes along and piques our interest until it fades into the background. Beyond The Vines, however, makes a case for timeless minimalist fashion, not only by veering away from trends but also by offering a seamless consumer experience.
Beyond The Vines was founded in 2015 by husband and wife tandem Daniel Chew and Rebecca Ting, and started as an online-only business. After the online shop took off, the two set to expand the brand’s reach by opening frequent pop-up shops across Singapore. Eventually, a boutique was opened along Orchard Road.
In 2019, the 2,000-square-foot flagship store, which included their collaborative Design Studio, was opened in Funan Mall. The brand now has physical stores in Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, and now, the Philippines.
Its inaugural Philippine store opened in Shangri-La Plaza last week, making its wide variety of sleek, everyday pieces accessible to the local market. If you’re thinking, ‘it’s just another minimalist brand,’ well, it’s deceivingly simple pieces will prove themselves worthy of your attention. From sophisticated separates (think pleated midi skirts and palazzo pants) to jumpsuits and dresses, each piece is made with buttery soft fabric, sewn together with impeccable stitching. Even simple camisoles and t-shirts are thoughtfully made.
Beyond The Vines is looking to be every woman’s new go-to for everyday basics that are, well, far from basic. That being said, the brand is a safe bet if you’re looking to give the women in your life some stylish picks to refresh their wardrobe. We’ve handpicked our favorites here:

Beyond The Vines has integrated its online and offline shopping experiences in Singapore, where each boutique is outfitted with computer stations, and online shoppers can make arrangements to fit items at the nearest store. Heads up: this might be rolled out in the Philippines. If it does, you and that special woman in your life can make a shopping date out of it.
