Travelers to the Far East have long bemoaned the absence of homegrown designers at retail. ARC, the third store from Singaporean-based retailer Paul Khor, now carries exclusively some of the most directional collections across Asia, including designs by Korea’s Suh Sangyoung, Eloq, Laundry 202, Vandalist and Instantology; Japan’s Gene Par Yukio Mishiba and INSH; and Shanghai’s Helen Lee Hongyan.

Khor, best known for his premium contemporary and denim collections at his other two stores Actually and Wooonderland, is also stocking exceptional denim by Denime, Full Count, Omnigod and KMW as well as accessories by Sousou, Masterpiece and Yoshida.

As for ARC’s intriguing interior? “The store exemplifies clean lines and minimalism, kept to the bare minimum with the juxtaposition between treated and untreated elements,” says Khor.
