1. Raffles City collaborates with Craftholic for a whimsical Christmas. This year marks the first time the iconic Raffles City Christmas tree is located indoors. Designed with Craftholic-inspired decors, the 15 metre-high tree is located at Level 3 Atrium. Shoppers have an additional reason to head down to Raffles City because the Japanese lifestyle brand has a pop-up store, where you can shop for your favourite plushies. During the weekends, there will be Craftholic activities, which include 3D gift card making, headband making, and a manicure session—mums and kids alike will surely enjoy! Craftholic's cute mascots, Rab Bunny and Sloth Bear, will also make special appearances during specific time slots.

2. Bang & Olufsen's Cool Modern collection. In celebration of its 91st anniversary, Bang & Olufsen proudly introduced a collection of brass-toned products. Named the Cool Modern collection, it exudes the brand's cool Nordic minimalism while also playing up with brass-toned aluminium structures and dark beautiful textile colours. The collection—composed of the new BeoVision 14 TV, BeoSound 35, BeoLab 18 speakers, and wireless speaker systems BeoSound 1 and BeouSound2—was inspired by both contemporary living and the timeless elegance of the Art Deco movement.
