UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON is a lifestyle brand that speaks to cosmopolitan souls who embrace democratic smart looks expressed by knitwear, colour, and stripes. Embodying Benetton’s sense of diversity, the garments are fluid, and fun and are designed to empower everyone to be themselves.

The Benetton flagship store at 313@Somerset (#02-43) opened in early December 2023, occupying 1,318 sq ft and retailing both apparel and accessories. It is also retailing in a 548-square-foot pop-up store at Takashimaya’s Men’s Department (Level 3). Benetton is available online via official e-stores on Lazada (https://www.lazada.sg/shop/united-colors-of-benetton) and Zalora (https://www.zalora.sg/store/united-colors-of-benetton).

Andrea Incontri serves as the Creative Director of the Women’s, Men’s, and Children’s collections, having been appointed in 2022. An architecture graduate, Andrea launched his eponymous fashion label in 2009 and then also served as creative director of Italian luxury group Tod’s from 2014 to 2019. His style is rooted in what he calls “a formal subtraction” and this will guide Benetton towards telling of the complexities in today’s world.

1. Back to Tailoring: expresses a return to the essence of tailoring, flattering shapes, cult garments and
the rediscovery of statement pieces in the wardroom.

3. Welcome to the Benetton Club: a series of rugby shirts that is a mix of preppy and athleisure style.

United Colors of Benetton: A coveted fashion brand that dominated the preppy fashion scene in the 80s in Singapore

One of the biggest cult brands of the 1980s, Benetton was not only highly sought after for its colourful casual wear and knitwear, but was also a label with a conscience. Benetton had launched buzz-worthy and thought-provoking ad campaigns that were ahead of their time, where they featured multiracial families, AIDS activists, and other controversial topics that challenged the status quo.

Today, Benetton remains steadfast in offering vibrant and diverse fashion pieces and being engaged in social and cultural issues. Guided by the creative vision of Incontri, Benetton and he will participate in a project of values that involves not only clothing but a wide range of cultural issues concerning the variable aspects of modern humanism.

United Colors Of Benetton is managed by Al Futtaim Group which has exclusive distribution rights in Singapore.
