Alvin Yap, collector and owner of the Intan said, “The Peranakan culture has imbued the Singapore landscape in so many ways, from inspiring the Singapore Girl’s kebaya to the roads we walk on, to the favourite food we put on the dining table. The Intan Atelier is honoured to partner Raffles Hotel Singapore in introducing Singapore’s unique Peranakan culture through a range of exclusive gifts and souvenirs for both locals and visitors at the Raffles Boutique, created by craftsmen from around the region. This collection will be available for retail for the very first time and with both the Peranakan culture and the Grande Dame sharing a legacy of storied heritage, it is befitting that the collection is launched at this national icon.”
