Graniph Designs Galore

Graniph

It’s been about a month since the Graniph store opened at Bugis Junction and man, talk about being spoiled for choice.

T-shirts on hangers, T-shirts on shelves. Sure, there are duplicates because what you see on the hangers are also folded neatly and arranged by size on the wooden shelves. But the overall effect is still one of colour bursting out of every corner, not to mention the idiosyncratic art style Graniph has come to be known for, and smatterings of foreign languages (French and German predominate, though oddly enough the only Japanese to be seen is the text printed on the signs indicating the T-shirt prices).

Speaking of prices, T-shirts are priced at $35 for one, $60 for two and $90 for three if you really feel like going all the way. That’s a good $15 cheaper than Sidewalk10 at Far East Plaza, IIRC (though the last time I purchased a Graniph T-shirt there was a good year ago). I think the tees still go for less in Japan itself but now you don’t have to go all the way there to get one anymore.

Which might make some T-shirt cognoscenti turn up their noses at wearing Graniph now that it’s so readily available, but hey, that’s what all globalisation is about. At least the Singapore Graniph store renews its stock regularly. A friend I was with tonight mentioned that the in-house stock’s been almost entirely changed since the opening one month back. So you might still get away without bumping into someone with the same shirt in our city of four million — unless, of course, you bought a Helvetica tee.

Now when will Uniqlo open up here?
