JOO CHIAT SCARF
BY BINARY STYLE
Peranakan culture is one of the heterogeneous identities of Singapore, this crossroads on the trade routes of diverse peoples and nations. Roaming around in Joo Chiat, where powerful matriarchs once reigned, one can still find the manifestations of this hybrid culture at its best: flamboyant facades with intricate Art Nouveau inspired architecture detailing, enriched with Chinese symbolism. This design captures the spirit of Peranakan culture along with the Phoenix’s earthly representation, the peacock.
