Global brand ECCO, known for its premium quality shoe and leather products, has revamped its ION Orchard store, converting it into its second PRIME concept store in Singapore.
Mr David To, General Manager of ECCO Singapore, said, “We are excited to introduce and welcome our second PRIME concept store in Singapore, located in the heart of the famous shopping belt, Orchard Road. Despite the current pandemic, ECCO continues to prioritise customer experience and this is what motivated us to convert our ION store into a PRIME concept store, to better serve ECCO’s local fans and supporters.”
Similar to all PRIME concept stores around the world, the aesthetic of ION’s ECCO store is inspired by ECCO’s rich heritage, and dons a charming Scandinavian minimalistic design. The refined store also features Danish nature-inspired colours like brown, grey and white and a combination of materials and textures, such as wood, steel, and leather.
As shoppers step into the store, they will be able to view the latest ECCO shoes and bags collections that are beautifully displayed against the concrete walls or on grey steel framed oak tables.
The reopening sees the exclusive launch of the Tannery Series, a pilot range of limited- edition shopper bags made from upcycled leather. From 3 October to 4 October, ECCO customers can get a complimentary ECCO leather tag upon purchase, and have it customised in-store by Jade Sparkle (@jadesparkletattoos), a homegrown tattoo artist.
