Celebrity Endorsed ‘Sycamore Style’ to Open Orchard Street Footwear Boutique

Posted on: September 20th, 2017 at 5:06 am by

The search for a new retail occupant at 145 Orchard Street just came to a close. It’s been four months since Killion departed the block, but now signage is in place for the latest entrant. Another fashion boutique.

Here comes Sycamore Style, a decades-old footwear brand that hawks “custom hand-dyed shoes.” According to their website, the various styles “have been rocked by the world’s elite music, entertainment and pro-athlete celebrities, including Rihanna, Tracy Morgan, LeBron James, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Snoop Dogg to name a few.”

Felippe Santos is the creative force behind Sycamore Style, which he founded back in 1995.

Killion previously occupied the Orchard Street space, having opened in August 2015. The “modern menswear” brand didn’t last the median two years to which most shops in the area tend to adhere. However, Killion still maintains an online marketplace.

The Mastihashop spent seven years in this space before calling it quits in early 2015.
