South Korean lifestyle brand MLB has opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Singapore, at the Mandarin Gallery.
The opening is part of the brand’s expansion strategy, which began with the opening of its first flagship store in Manhattan, New York, in 2020.
The Singapore flagship features a 120sqm retail space and offers a range of streetwear apparel including t-shirts, sneakers, sweaters, jackets, denim bags and its exclusive baseball cap collection.
MLB, or Major League Baseball, is the world’s oldest major professional sports league. The South Korean apparel retailer F&F obtained the official MLB license and opened the first MLB store in 1997.
The brand currently has 280 stores in South Korea and also operates in multiple markets, including in Vietnam, Thailand and Hong Kong in Asia.
MLB aspires to produce garments and accessories for men, women, and children that are both functional and fashionable. It draws influence from a variety of sources, including sports, street fashion, and culture, and has incorporated these characteristics into its store designs.
