The new Asylum with a new facelift with a shift of focus towards more fashion driven.
First opened in 2005, Asylum started out as a concept store selling design and lifestyle products. As one of the first multi-label stores in Singapore, Asylum Shop was fondly looked upon as a place to inspire through its variety of products.
