Calling all Barbie girls and boys! Greta Gerwig’s Barbie finally hit cinemas in Singapore on July 20 – after one year of (probably) the best movie marketing in history. Starring Margot Robbie as the iconic doll Barbie, and Ryan Gosling as Ken, the pair swap their colourfully perfect lives in Barbie Land, to go on a journey of self-discovery in the human world – which isn’t so plastic and fantastic.
Here in Singapore, we’ve got a number of stylish, pink places to explore, and you’ll catch fans parading around in colourful outfits for #BarbieCore. So, here are 10 perfectly pink ways to feel like you’re in Barbie Land in Singapore this season.
1. Sip a pink coffee
Start your day with a pink coffee at Bread & Butter by XY. Located in the CBD and first launched as a home-bakery in 2020, it has quickly become one of the hottest bakeries for satisfying bakes and top-quality coffee in Singapore. It opens from 6am on weekdays, so you can sip pink beverages from the early hours and indulge on sweet treats like cinnamon sticky buns for an energetic boost. Learn more about Bread & Butter by XY.
