The new Under Armour Singapore store at Bugis Junction is the fast-growing sportswear brand’s largest in the city, and second largest in Southeast Asia.
The fashionable sportswear brand is growing rapidly, especially in Asia where it has 15 solo-brand retail stores and a presence in nine markets.
The new Bugis Junction store is 2960 sqft (275 sqm), a fraction smaller than its largest, the 3000 sqft store at the Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
An instantly recognisable statuesque Under Armour logo is proudly erected at the front of the new brand house, while the concept for it echoes the industrial and gym-inspired interiors displayed in existing Under Armour brand houses, retaining the signature accents consistent to all global Under Armour stores – including the use of metal and wood furnishings and the Under Armour Thrones, large black leather seats with the logo stitched in red built within the footwear zone.
Under Armour says the Bugis Junction store “embodies a retail experience that awakens the fierce and high- intensity energy and signature philosophy of the Under Armour brand”.
It is the first store to exclusively stock the basketball range and childrenswear, and will soon exclusively stock the Hunting, Tactical and Outdoor series.
“Bugis Junction has been a key locale for entertainment, recreation and retail for both the youth and working professionals for decades. With many specialised gyms and fitness destinations in the area, Under Armour Bugis Junction is the ideal complement to kickstart or to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle,” explains Michael Binger, CEO of Triple, the local licensee of the brand.
