Shop the Tropics started out as a pop-up concept held regularly in Singapore, bringing together local retailers and designers with a range of unique products and services.
Now, the catchy brand with its tropical-glam new-look logo and ownership has relaunched with a bigger and better offering. Shop The Tropics will represent unique labels and boutique brands for the expatriate community in Singapore ensuring easy access to simple, affordable and trendy styles in the tropics.
Shop The Tropics will not only bring new and independent designers and brands to your tropical playground, but it will run with super stylish intimate shopping events where you get to meet the designers, brand owners and mom-preneurs. Events where you get to mingle with friends and own some of these great brands.

MelBelle Womens Wear
MelBelle is about comfort and quality - Couture for Curves!

Either way, you'll feel good and look fabulous! A confident you! It's affordable luxury for women who like to lounge in style.
We do not mass produce. Although we try to cater for the curvier women, our smaller framed ladies can also find select styles in smaller sizes. However, styles, prints and sizes are limited, so don’t deliberate on your purchase – you don’t want to miss out.
This gorgeous easy to wear collection of high quality, affordable and contemporary fashion jewellery from the UK is now available to add that finishing touch to your wardrobe.
All the Envy designs draw on current trends and looks to provide customers with the latest styles of the season.
Each Envy piece is nickel free and, as per our ethos of ensuring 'exclusive style', comes in limited quantities so, don't think too long about your purchase, once it's gone, it's gone.
